On Saturday’s edition of MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” economist and political commentator Julianne Malveaux laid into White House counselor Kellyanne Conway for mocking the disagreement between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as a “cat fight.”
“We have to remember when we’re discussing this, dissent really is a bedrock of democracy,” said Malveaux. “The Democratic Party is extraordinarily diverse, not only racially but also ideologically, and we’re seeing this play out. At the end of the day, the goal has to be to get rid of the orange orangutan.”
“But in the meantime, these folks, all the four in the squad, they have constituencies. If AOC was not speaking up, believe me, some of the people that she represents would be saying something to her. If Ayanna Presley, who defeated a popular Democratic congressman … her mantra was change cannot wait. So if she was now waiting, she would be betraying the people who voted for her. So I applaud them, and I applaud Speaker Pelosi at the same time. I’m in San Francisco sitting in her district, and if I lived at home, she’d be my congresswoman. I admire her, I respect her, but both sides need to learn how to work together. And we don’t know what’s happening behind closed doors.”
“We’ve got crazy Kellyanne Conway running around calling saying things like a ‘cat fight,'” added Malveaux. “I hate it when women describe dissent among women as a cat fight. The fact is that this is a healthy part of the democratic process, and we all ought to applaud it as long as, come a couple months, we’re united in what Democrats need to do, and that’s take back the White House, the Congress and the Senate.”
‘It is all crazy’: CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin goes off on people who try to insist Trump’s rants are just jokes
On Thursday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin scorned the idea from President Donald Trump's defenders that rants like his recent anointment of himself as "the chosen one" are made in jest, for entertainment value.
"One of the strange things about President Trump is that nobody has ever seen him laugh, like a full laugh on camera," said Toobin. "Think about it. You never see it. And this notion of explaining crazy things he says as jokes is not — that is just not true. He does not joke. When he said 'Russia, you know, I want you to find Hillary Clinton's emails,' they tried to explain it as a joke. It wasn't. Russia went right to work trying to find Hillary's emails."
‘It’s always dread with President Trump’: CNN analyst says G7 leaders are revolted they have to meet with Trump again
On Thursday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," reporter Abby Phillip said that world leaders are feeling "dread" about the prospect of meeting with President Donald Trump after his latest round of erratic behavior on the world stage.
"There is a big test on foreign relations for President Trump this weekend," said host Brianna Keilar. "He's going to the G7. He, Abby, is headed there after insulting Denmark by pulling out of a state visit, keeping in mind that Denmark is a key intel and military ally of the U.S. What is the mood going into this forum?"
"Honestly, it's always dread with President Trump," said Phillip.
‘I’ve been insulted by better’: Hilarious video shows gay man perfectly handling slur-spewing drunk woman
A gay man is being celebrated as a hilarious good Samaritan for handling an angry drunk woman, who was screaming homophobic slurs at him at the same time.
LGBTQNation found the video on Facebook showing the 52-year-old woman outside the Black Friar pub in Newcastle-under-Lyme. She picked a fight with the owner, Ryan Carrington, the site explained.
“You’re a gay bod and you don’t like women. That’s what your problem is,” the woman drunkenly says while accidently running into the wall. She then turns to call him a "f*cking fat f*ggot."
