In a video created by the Young Turks, an unidentified woman blew up at the mention that President Donald Trump once said he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and his fans — like her –wouldn’t care.
In the video, the woman was asked to describe socialism and seemed to link it to race and Democrats turning on white people.
Pressed by TYT reporter Emma Vigeland, the woman stated, “I define socialism when you bring down your own country, your own race because he [Joe Biden] is not black.”
“What does that mean? Bringing them down to black people, is that what you mean?” Vigeland pressed.
“No,” the woman shot back. “He’s saying the white people — he doesn’t look at himself in the mirror?”
Asked about Trump’s highly publicized shooting comments, the woman — sporting a MAGA hat — refused to admit the president ever said such a thing, replying, “No, I don’t think so.”
“He did say that, it’s on tape,” Vigeland replied.
“I don’t believe it, that’s fake, that’s fake news,” the woman avidly insisted.
Trump’s claim on halting Ukraine aid contradicted by Pentagon official Laura Cooper
According to a new report from The Daily Beast, after the Pentagon's June announcement that it would give Ukraine $250 million in aid, Defense Department officials received a list of questions, seemingly originating from President Trump, seeking information about the aid.
“We got a question from my chain of command forwarded down from the chief of staff, I believe, from the Department of Defense, asking for a follow-up on a meeting with the President,” top Pentagon official Laura Cooper testified on Capitol Hill last month. “The way the email was phrased, it said follow-up from POTUS meeting, so follow-up from a meeting with the President. So, you know, I'm thinking that the questions were probably questions from the President. That's how I interpreted that subject line.”
Kellyanne Conway snaps after Fox News host mentions Adam Schiff
On Fox News Tuesday, anchor Bill Hemmer asked White House counselor Kellyanne Conway about the impeachment hearings — and she lost her temper as soon as he brought up House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA).
"How concerned is the president over these hearings?" asked Hemmer.
"The president is not concerned at all," said Conway. "The business of the people of this country is not being done ... the Capitol behind me is not a movie set, it is not a cardboard cutout. It’s where your representatives work for you, wasting your money and their time."
"Just to come back to this, I am told that Adam Schiff delivers the opening statement tomorrow," said Hemmer.
House Republicans have a plan to defend Trump during impeachment hearings – it’s all about his ‘state of mind’
Rather than act as impartial investigators, dedicated to ascertaining the facts of the President's actions, and whether or not those actions were legal, or are impeachable, House Republicans will stick to a plan that focuses on his "state of mind" and other intangible arguments.
"Confronted with a mountain of damaging facts heading into tomorrow's opening of the public phase of impeachment, House Republicans plan to argue that 'the President's state of mind' was exculpatory," Axios reports, noting it has obtained an 18-page GOP memo that was sent out to House Intelligence Committee members Monday night.
