During a CNN panel discussion on Donald Trump racists tweets attacking Democratic lawmakers who are not white and telling them to go back where they came from, conservative contributor Amanda Carpenter unleashed a scathing attack on GOP lawmakers who are standing by and remaining silent.

Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, the former aide to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) called on members of her party to “get off their butts” for once and call out the president.

“I think that when Trump posts these controversial things, he’s posing more loyalty tests to his troops: ‘Who’s going to go out and defend me?'” she began. “He likes to see who says good things about him on television.”

Addressing Trump directly, she added, “Lemme tell you something President Trump, you keep saying these things and you’re going to get terrible people defending you. Only the misfits, only the dregs — you will not have the best people, you will have the worst.”

“I want to follow up on something that was said earlier about Republicans being brave, anyone being brave,” she lectured. “It doesn’t take that much to say this is wrong. We’re not asking you to put on a uniform and fight terrorism, all you have to do is go on Twitter and say this is wrong.”

“If people do that, people will feel safer,” she continued. “It’s really the least you can do. It’ll take two seconds, it’s not that much effort. Get off your butts, get out of bed, get on your phone, post a tweet, say ‘This is wrong,’ and come together on this!”

Astronomers believe they have discovered a new, bizarre type of cosmic object that is invisible to all wavelengths of light except radio.

This story originally appeared at Salon.

The strange circular objects in question have been unofficially dubbed "Odd Radio Circles" (ORCs); three of them were discovered in a recent data accumulated during a preliminary survey by the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder, a radio telescope array in Western Australia. A fourth Odd Radio Circle was discovered when researchers sifted through old data from 2013.

Bill Barr quietly pulls off a shake-up in a federal prosecutor’s office — but why?

Published

on

Attorney General Bill Barr’s attempt last month to push U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman out of his position at the Southern District of New York blew up in his face. While Berman was ousted, Barr didn’t get the replacement he wanted, and House Democrats are now investigating.

But last Friday night, Barr successfully pulled off a similar maneuver in the Eastern District of New York. Richard Donoghue no longer leads that office, as he has taken the position of principal associate deputy attorney general at Main Justice. Seth DuCharme, who had been principal associate deputy attorney general and worked under Barr, will now serve as the acting U.S. attorney for EDNY.
