On Saturday, CNN anchor S.E. Cupp gave a passionate lecture about the sexism female politicians face during political campaigns.
The host read a quote from a “top” advisor to former Vice President Joe Biden.
“I don’t know of anybody who has taken as sustained and vitriolic a negative pounding as Biden …really the most vicious press I think anyone’s experienced,” the Biden advisor told Politico.
“Come again? What’s that now?” Cupp asked in disbelief.
“I think there are some women who beg to differ,” she noted.
“Like Hillary Clinton, like Sarah Palin, like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” she continued.
“I can keep going — Carly Fiorina, Elizabeth Warren, Ann Romney, Michelle Obama, Melania Trump, the OG of sustained and vitriolic and negative pounding, Monica Lewinsky,” Cupp reminded.
Trump’s 2020 campaign distances itself from absurdly violent pro-Trump video
A brutal video clip depicting Donald Trump shooting and stabbing media characters and political opponents was shown at a conference for his supporters, the New York Times reported Sunday.
In the internet meme -- taken from a scene in the movie "Kingsman: The Secret Service" -- the US president's head is superimposed on a man opening fire at people whose faces have been replaced with the logos of outlets including CNN, the Washington Post and NBC TV.
As the rampage continues inside the "Church of Fake News", the Trump character strikes late senator John McCain on the back of the neck and torches the head of Senator Bernie Sanders, a Democratic presidential rival.
Furious ex-White House official rains hell on Trump video of church slaughter: ’Mass shootings are not jokes!’
A CNN panel was equally appalled and furious about a video that was shown at the conservative conference held at a hotel owned by Donald Trump that showed the president slaughtering church worshipers who represented CNN, NPR, MSNBC and Black Lives Matter in the "Church of Fake News."
Speaking with hosts John Avlon and Alisyn Camerota, former President Bill Clinton communications director Joe Lockhart seemed visibly angry that it was shown at a conservative sanctioned event that featured Sarah Sanders and Don Trump Jr. as speakers.
Asked by Avlon, "Has there been anything remotely like this in American political history or something truly new and dangerous?"
Voters often parrot the party line, even when polls suggest otherwise
As the 2020 election approaches, voters will see a variety of polls. Many of them will be misleading.
Over time, political science has learned which types of questions are informative and which are not, based on models of public opinion. But many of the questions that polling organizations ask simply do not inform the public.
I am a political scientist who studies polarization and the gaps between the public and their representatives on political matters.
