Published

on

A Nebraska state legislator is calling out members of his own party Sunday after three mass shootings took place in one week in the United States.

Republican Sen. John McCollister posted a thread, saying that the GOP is outright “enabling white supremacy” in the United States and that as a lifelong Republican he couldn’t stand by any longer and watch it happen.

“I, of course, am not suggesting that all Republicans are white supremacists nor am I saying that the average Republican is even racist,” he explained. “What I am saying though is that the Republican Party is COMPLICIT to obvious racist and immoral activity inside our party.”

“We have a Republican president who continually stokes racist fears in his base. He calls certain countries ‘sh*tholes,’ tells women of color to ‘go back’ to where they came from and lies more than he tells the truth,” he went on. “We have Republican senators and representatives who look the other way and say nothing for fear that it will negatively affect their elections. No more. When the history books are written, I refuse to be someone who said nothing.”

Published

President Donald Trump and his White House have made clear he is unconcerned about the deadly coronavirus threat, except as it affects the markets, which he sees as his key to re-election. He reportedly was "furious" at the CDC for telling lawmakers and the American public the virus will spread into communities across the U.S.

“We are asking the American public to prepare for the expectation that this might be bad,” the CDC said Tuesday, which angered Trump.

Those remarks helped tank the markets even further on Tuesday, with the DOW dropping 1900 points in just two days.

Trump tried to blame the news media for informing the public about the risks, via Twitter Wednesday morning. It did not go well.

In the wake of Shakira and J Lo's widely praised Super Bowl halftime show, the FCC received 1,312 complaints from viewers who were upset with the alleged sexual nature of the performance, CNN reports.

"Jennifer Lopez's performance at the Super Bowl halftime show was extremely explicit and completely unacceptable for a event where families including children are watching," a viewer from Utah said.
