‘Step out of line’: Emmy winning ‘Mrs. Maisel’ actress tells powerful tale of her grandmother fighting Nazis

Published

on

Actress Alex Borstein won the award for a best supporting actress in a comedy series during the 71st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Sunday. When accepting her award, however, she told a touching story about her grandmother’s bravery fighting the Nazis.

After a few quick jokes, Borstein announced that she was dedicating her award to the “strength of a woman.”

“To my mother … to my grandmother,” she said. “They are immigrants, they are Holocaust survivors. My grandmother turned to a guard. She was in line to be shot into a pit. She said, ‘What happens if I step out of line?’ And he said, ‘I don’t have the heart to shoot you but somebody will,’ and she stepped out of line. And for that, I am here and my children are here. So step out of line, ladies, step out of line.”

Borstein’s character in “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is a kind of comic sherpa to lead Mrs. Maisel to stand-up stardom. While the show is set in the 1950’s in a posh New York neighborhood and a traditional Jewish family, Borstein plays a feminist realist ready to take on the male-dominated stand-up scene.

“The Republicans are selling their souls to the devil and disgracing themselves to maintain their seats in Congress,” Dozier wrote in the South Florida Times. "Many of these Republicans are confessed Christians, who are violating the tenets of their religion in the support of President Trump."

Trump faces a ‘personnel time bomb’ as his complicit officials get hauled before Congress: columnist

President Trump's prospects for a second term are threatened by two kinds of people: Those "who have either had enough of him or are being forced by subpoena to share what they’ve seen," according to a new Washington Post opinion piece by Paul Waldman.

Waldman writes that it isn't Trump's top administration officials who are threatening his presidency; it's the lesser known professionals who are "so distant from the Oval Office that Trump probably doesn’t even know they exist" -- one example being former US Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch.

OANN anchor goes down in flames for reporting Christopher Columbus saved natives with Christianity

Published

on

One America News Network anchor Liz Wheeler took on history this week when she suggested that Christopher Columbus actually ended atrocities against Native Americans by bringing Christianity to America.

In a series of eye-popping tweets on Monday, Wheeler decided to celebrate Columbus Day by whitewashing the explorer's legacy.

"Christopher Columbus didn't commit genocide," she wrote. "Within 200 years of Columbus's arrival, 95% of the 20M Native Americans died... from disease. Smallpox, flu, tuberculosis, malaria, plague, measles, cholera."

"Tragic, definitely. But mass murder by Columbus? Not even close," Wheeler added.
