Meghan McCain blasted her fellow conservatives who excused or defended an online video that depicts President Donald Trump violently executing his media critics and political rivals.
“The View” host Whoopi Goldberg condemned the video, which was shown at a political event attended by Donald Trump Jr. and Sarah Huckabee Sanders, as “insanely disturbing,” and McCain blasted Republicans who were untroubled by it.
“I’ve been getting into it on Twitter with this, and people are saying, ‘This is just free speech or being a snowflake, you’re so sensitive,'” McCain said. “You’re talking about sitting senators and congresspeople, Maxine Waters, President Obama, the Clintons, my father. You can’t kill him again, but whatever. Black Lives Matter — these are real people.”
She called out Trump Jr., Sanders and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who was also at the event, for not speaking out against the video.
“I am not someone who thinks we can’t have content and entertainment and writing and that talking about violence is important, but this is an entirely different thing when you use pictures of actual people who are still alive,” McCain said. “How easy for all of you judging me that I’m offended and upset by the video. You try doing this when a member of your family has continued to have this happen over and over and over again, and it doesn’t seem to matter to anybody in Trump world whatsoever.”
“You conservatives on Twitter, if this were the opposite,” she added, “it happened at an Obama event, you’d be screaming bloody murder. So stop.”
Second official confirms Trump’s call with Gordon Sondland as evidence for latest bombshell grows: report
According to the Associated Press, a source is saying that a second US embassy official overheard President Trump’s call with Sondland regarding Ukraine moving forward with investigating Trump's political rivals.
Bill Taylor, the president's top diplomat in Ukraine, testified Wednesday that he learned last week from a staffer, after he was deposed in a closed-door hearing, about an incident that took place a day after Trump's call to his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky.
Pelosi smacks down Fox News reporter’s question — and hilariously explains to Trump what ‘exculpatory’ means
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday smacked down Fox News reporter Chad Pergram after he insinuated that House Democrats seemed "excited" about the prospect of impeaching President Donald Trump.
During a press conference, Pergram asked Pelosi, "Why would the public not think that the House is dead set on a course to impeach the president when all of this milieu was going on?"
"All this milieu is a seeking of the truth," she replied. "It's called an inquiry."
Pelosi at this point turned to the camera and seemed to address Trump directly.
"And if the president has something that is exculpatory -- Mr. President, that means if you have anything that shows your innocence -- then he should make that known," she said. "And that's part of the inquiry. So far we haven't seen that."
‘That’s bribery’: Nancy Pelosi explains why Trump is in deeper water than he thinks
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday explained why President Donald Trump could be guilty of attempted bribery.
At a press conference, Pelosi pointed out that bribery is named in the U.S. Constitution as an impeachable offense.
"What is the bribe?" the Speaker was asked.
"The bribe is to grant or withhold military assistance [from Ukraine] in return for a public statement of a fake investigation into the elections. That is bribery," she explained.
