McConnell says racism is a “thrown around” word that is “routinely” applied to everything.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell praised President Donald Trump after the president’s campaign re-election event in North Carolina Wednesday turned into a racist rally with chants of “send her back” targeting U.S. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
“I think the president’s onto something,” Sen. McConnell said, of the President aiming his arsenal at four progressive Democratic Congresswomen, including Rep. Omar.
“We’re having a big debate, now and next year, about what we want America to be like,” McConnell added, attacking socialism.
McConnell rejected the claim that he is complicit in advancing racism, saying racism is a “thrown around” word that is “routinely applied to everything.”
“We ought to tone the rhetoric down across the country,” he urged.
Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo accused Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of “pulling out the race card” on McConnell after the Congresswoman from Queens and The Bronx called the Majority Leader “complicit” in advancing racism in America.
“Everyone knows that’s nonsense,” McConnell said, adding that it’s “time to lower the rhetoric” on racism.
Mediaite adds that “Bartiromo kicked off the interview by showing extensive clips from the rally — including one in which the crowd loudly chanted ‘send her back’ — before asking Mitch: ‘You’re reaction to some of the president’s commentary?'”
“He’s right about ‘the squad’ wanting to turn us into a socialist country,” McConnell said.
‘IDIOT!’ Fox News viewers fly into a rage after anchor says claims of Facebook being anti-conservative are ‘unfounded’
Fox News Headlines 24/7 morning anchor Brett Larson is facing an angry backlash from some viewers of the network, after saying on Wednesday that claims of anti-conservative bias at Facebook have mostly turned out to be baseless.
Facebook recently released the findings from an audit of conservative claims of bias, which was conducted by former Republican Sen. Jon Kyl (AZ). During an interview on Fox News, Larson was asked to respond to comments from Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), a frequent Facebook critic who said that the audit was "a smokescreen disguised as a solution."
"Facebook should conduct an actual audit by giving a trusted third party access to its algorithm, its key documents, and its content moderation protocols. Then Facebook should release the results to the public," Hawley said Tuesday in a statement.
Fox News guest shuts down panel bashing Ilhan Omar by pointing out Trump’s ‘profoundly’ anti-Semitic rhetoric
A Fox News panelist shut down his colleagues by explaining why President Donald Trump had displayed more anti-Semitic behavior than Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
The president launched a new attack against another Muslim lawmaker, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), as part of his ongoing feud with four first-year Democratic congresswomen, and "Outnumbered" co-host Lisa Boothe compared them to neo-Nazis.
Sorry, I don’t buy Rep. Tlaib’s tears. I have watched her violence, craziness and, most importantly, WORDS, for far too long. Now tears? She hates Israel and all Jewish people. She is an anti-Semite. She and her 3 friends are the new face of the Democrat Party. Live with it!
