Republican Party caught darkening Colin Kaepernick’s skin for disparaging graphic — then lying about it

Published

on

The congressional arm of the Republican Party was caught posting a racist meme of NFL player Colin Kaepernick, and when asked about it, they got caught in a lie.

Yahoo News’ White House correspondent, Hunter Walker caught the National Republican Congressional Committee pushing out a disparaging meme of Kaepernick. While that’s hardly unheard of from right-wing groups and individuals, the NRCC took the extra step to darken Kaepernick’s skin.

“House Republicans are running on racism, plain and simple. It’s disgusting, it’s offensive and it should be fireable, but there’s no accountability in the Republican Party,” a Democratic operative said.

When given the opportunity to clean up the public relations disaster, the NRCC then lied about it.

“The photo was not darkened,” said NRCC communications director Chris Pack.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion.
