‘Clear and present racism’: MSNBC’s Morning Joe and Mika say Kellyanne Conway should have been ‘fired on the spot’ for slurring reporter

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were astonished by Kellyanne Conway’s response to a reporter asking about President Donald Trump’s racist attacks on four first-year lawmakers.

The White House senior adviser asked Breakfast Media White House correspondent Andrew Feinberg, who is Jewish, about his ethnicity after he asked Conway what countries Trump was telling the Democratic congresswomen to return.

“I won’t draw any parallels with any fascist countries, but what happened yesterday in a press gaggle has nothing to do with the United States of America,” Scarborough said, “and in any other administration over the past 240 years, a person that did what Kellyanne Conway did yesterday would have been fired on the spot. By the time she left the press gaggle and went back into the White House, they would have already packed up her belongings and would have told her leave by the back door and never talk to us again.”

His “Morning Joe” co-host said Conway should have already been fired for a variety of offenses, and she blamed Republicans for allowing the administration to get away with obviously racist rhetoric.

“The fact is that she’s done other things that would have caused this, as well,” Brzezinski said. “That’s why she doesn’t come on this show. This, at this point, is news.”

“It’s really important, as we cover these spineless Republicans who, at this moment in history, are incapable of calling out clear and present racism,” she added. “You know, and it is a big story that they can’t do that. This will be remembered.”

Keilar recounted how a couple married for over 50 years died from the virus only minutes apart after being admitted to the hospital on August 11. When it became clear they wouldn't survive, they were placed in the same ward, where they died holding hands.

So-called moderate Georgia senator brags she’s as conservative as a pagan barbarian who killed his own brother to rule

Published

on

Sen. Kelly Loeffler's (R-GA) new campaign ad brags that she's "more conservative than Attila the Hun," with an actor grunting off a "list" of things he would do.

It appears neither Loeffler nor her staff thought to google who Attila the Hun was and why associating yourself with him could be a public relations disaster.

Among the things the History Channel remembers about Attila, was that he killed his own brother to ensure absolute power. He invaded Gaul in an attempt to score a wife. He also had a "legendary lust for gold."

McConnell’s Supreme Court fight exposes the contempt he and Trump hold for millions of Americans: op-ed

Published

on

Writing for the Washington Post this Monday, Greg Sargent says that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's forging ahead with a vote to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg is more than just "hypocrisy" -- it's a demonstration of "the contempt that McConnell and Trump hold for millions and millions of American voters."

"It’s about their cavalier willingness to treat all those voters’ political preferences as having no legitimate purchase at all — that is, when they vote for Democrats," Sargent writes.

According to Sargent, the "real game" was given away by Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), who declared that the “Constitution gives Senators the power” to confirm nominees, and so “no one should be surprised” if they do it in this case.
