Mike Pence’s spokesperson loses it when ex-Breitbart staffer calls out Republican racism

Published

Former Breitbart staffer and Republican congressional spokesman Kurt Bardella ignited a Twitter feud with Vice President Mike Pence’s spokeswoman.

The online spat was ignited after Bardella blasted the Republican Party on Wednesday:

Pence’s spokesperson Alyssa Farah was quick to call Bardella’s tweet “wildly irresponsible” and accused him of making the allegations for publicity reasons. She then claimed he never really understood the GOP when he was a Republican anyway.

Bardella’s citations are historically accurate. Trump laughed and applauded at a rally in Panama City Beach where a supporter shouted out that they should shoot migrants coming over the border. Black men are incarcerated at a significantly higher rate than their white counterparts for the same crimes. Criminal justice reform that aimed to fix that disparity is one of the things Trump himself has bragged about.

Ultimately, it was one of Trump’s own cabinet officials that allowed accused rapist, child molester Jeffrey Epstein off with a “sweetheart” deal.

“Wildly #irresponsible is the #racist garbage your boss’ boss tweets out every day,” Bardella retorted. “Irresponsible is subjecting human beings to torturous conditions because they are brown. Irresponsible is allowing white cops to murder black Americans. You’re right – I don’t understand #racists.”

Unusually loud booing and jeering directed disproportionately at Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren during Tuesday night's Democratic presidential debate—particularly when the senators criticized billionaire businessman Michael Bloomberg—sparked probing questions about the class composition of the audience packed inside the Gaillard Center in Charleston, South Carolina.

Ex-GOP senator hammers lawmakers quaking in their boots out of fear of Trump: ‘Why are you there?’

Published

Appearing on CNN on Wednesday morning, retired Sen. William Cohen (R-ME) hammered members of his own party still sitting in the Senate who refuse to take on Donald Trump, saying they are failing the country and themselves by standing by in fear.

Speaking with CNN hosts Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto, Cohen said kowtowing to the president is nothing new, but has grown worse over the past ten years.

"Some of it has to do with external pressures, that of social media, talk radio, specific channels that have a particular view and then hammer that view home to the constituents who then pressure the members of Congress," he explained. "But you have to ask yourself: Why are you a senator? Why are you there? Are you acting out of sheer fear that if you speak up and take a position that's controversial you'll be punished?"

President Donald Trump still has no set plan to combat the spread of coronavirus, just hours before he is set to hold a hastily-called 6 PM Wednesday press conference. According to Politico, Trump haas yet to decide whether or not to install a coronavirus czar to coordinate efforts, similar to how the Obama administration successfully staved off the spread of Ebola in 2014.

"Officials are still debating whether such a role is necessary, but the global spread has increased the urgency to elevate its response, and the Trump White House is eager to appear like it’s in control of containing the virus within the United States," Politico adds.
