“The View” host Whoopi Goldberg slammed former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley for claiming the pro-choice movement was somehow anti-feminist.
The former Trump administration official told an anti-abortion group that women who supported reproductive rights demanded conformity from women, which she argued was not “real feminism” — and Goldberg ripped her remarks as ridiculous.
“Let me get this straight,” Goldberg said. “So giving a women a choice about what to do with her body is anti-feminist because she — okay, look, I say it all the time. You have the right never to have an abortion. You have that right, and I support that.”
“But what about the 9-year-old girl who gets raped by a family member or some thug in the street?” she continued. “Why are you taking her mother’s discussion with her family, what their choice is, why are you taking it out of their hands? See to me, you taking choice from people is anti-human, so I don’t understand.”
Donald Trump is the 21st-century Jefferson Davis– and history will judge him
On Friday, Donald Trump and his wife Melania attended an early Independence Day celebration held at Mount Rushmore.
This article first appeared on Salon.
There were fireworks, a military flyover, and "patriotic" songs such as "The Star-Spangled Banner".
The entire spectacle embodied the worst kind of superficial juvenile patriotism.
More than 130,000 Americans are dead from the coronavirus pandemic. The country teeters on the edge of a second Great Depression. A neofascist regime rules in Washington. Donald Trump is in thrall to Vladimir Putin and Russia and in doing so actively betrays the United States and the American people.
‘We will not be silenced’: Trump accuses racial justice protesters of trying to wipe out ‘our’ history at Mount Rushmore
US President Donald Trump bemoaned protests demanding racial justice as "violent mayhem" Friday, but said little about an alarming resurgence of coronavirus cases as he attended a crowded, fireworks-studded Independence Day celebration beneath majestic Mount Rushmore.
Trump, under fire for his response to America's spiraling coronavirus caseload four months before the presidential election, spoke on the eve of the July 4th celebrations before thousands of closely-packed people -- many of whom chanted "Four more years;" few of whom were wearing masks.
In the shadow of four notable predecessors -- George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln, whose likenesses are carved into a granite cliff in South Dakota's Black Hills -- the president called on supporters to defend America's "integrity".
Trump’s message is still ‘white power’: NYT’s Michelle Goldberg
With so many polls showing President Donald Trump trailing former Vice President Joe Biden, some conservative pundits have been asserting that he needs a stronger message. But liberal New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg argues that Trump still has a consistent message: racism.
“Trump does indeed have a reelection message, a stark and obvious one," writes Goldberg, a frequent guest on MSNBC. “It is ‘white power.’”
Racism, Goldberg stresses, is something that Trump inevitably turns to when he wants to rally his base.
