In a Tuesday interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, comedian and former television host Rosie O’Donnell gave Speaker Nancy Pelosi some advice on how to deal with President Donald Trump.
“We need to have people come together and come up with ideas that make us humane and also someone who respects justice and we could do both,” said CNN host Chris Cuomo about the border crisis. “But, I’m telling you, Rosie, the thing that you’re doing this Friday and getting out and getting people to care so they start pushing Congress to do their jobs and make sure there’s oversight, that is a key ingredient in making it better.”
“And we hope we can make Nancy Pelosi do hers,” O’Donnell said about Pelosi, alluding to impeachment. “This is not how you deal with Trump. After decades of relentless, unending abuse from him, this is not how you deal with him. You don’t let him go and give him a long lead. You got to confront him at his own level. And to turn around and say we’re not going to have an impeachment inquiry I think is a gross injustice and Nancy Pelosi is making a future mistake.”
O’Donnell made a plea for viewers to join a national candle-light vigil called the “Lights for Liberty,” which aims to raise awareness about the migrants on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe has the perfect answer for Trump’s claim America can’t be criticized
As President Donald Trump continued his racist targeting of four women of color in Congress, he attempted to excuse his racism by claiming it was justified as the lawmakers had criticized America.
“I can tell you this, you can’t talk that way about our country. Not when I am the president,” Trump threatened.
Soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe was asked about her take on patriotism during an interview with CNN's Van Jones that aired Saturday evening.
"I think I’m super patriotic. I do consider myself extremely patriotic," Rapinoe said.
"I think, like, we love in America to talk about, you know, how good we are, and how like we want to save the world, and always intervening in places because they’re not doing it right. Meanwhile, at home, we’re not even doing that oftentimes for our own people," she explained.
CNN’s Republican anchor rips GOP for allowing Trump’s racism: ‘What a load of crap’
CNN anchor S.E. Cupp on Saturday blasted the Republican Party for enabling President Donald Trump's racism.
"Welcome to 'Unfiltered,' in what might be the ugliest week of his presidency so far, Donald Trump went from dipping a toe in the pool of white nationalism to bathing in it," Cupp declared.
First, there was the racist tweetstorm he told four women of color, elected representatives no less -- to go back to their own countries. Then his followers took his cues and responded, chanting “Send her back” about Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) at a rally in North Carolina," she reported.
