Rick Santorum blasted by CNN’s Begala for blatant lie in effort to defend Trump

Published

on

Former GOP Senator Rick Santorum ran into some major pushback on CNN on Sunday morning as he tried to dismiss the Donald Trump articles of impeachment headed to a full House vote by saying there was a stronger case against former President Bill Clinton.

Sitting on a “State of the Union” panel with host Jake Tapper, the conservative CNN contributor addressed the charges against the president by saying, “There are two issues. The one I have the most problem with is the second article.”

“Obstruction of Congress,” Tapper helpfully added.

“If you don’t comply you could be impeached and every president will be impeached if they say we’ll not give you what you asked for,” Santorum claimed. “And I think that is reckless on the part of Democrats and would be stunned if more Democrats don’t vote against that than the first one.”

“I don’t think what the president did was right in that conversation,” he continued. “I don’t think it was anywhere near impeachable and I’ll say to my good friend Paul [Begala] who was with Bill Clinton, every Democrat agreed what the president did was illegal in 1999 –”

“It was bologna,” co-panelist Begala snapped before correcting him. “They said it wrong .”

“Oh, no, no. He committed — Democrat after Democrat walked to the floor and said he broke the law and perjured himself,” Santorum shot back.

“He didn’t, he didn’t violate any law,” Begala replied.

“He admitted he committed perjury,” Santorum maintained.

WATCH: Franklin Graham tells Jeanine Pirro coronavirus pandemic is because of people sinning

Franklin Graham blamed sinners for the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic during a Saturday night appearance on Fox News.

Host Jeanine Pirro noted the growing death toll and wondered how God could let that happen.

"Well, I don't think it's God's plan for this to happen," Graham said.

"It's because of the sin that's in the world, judge," he argued.

"Man has turned his back on God, we have sinned against him, and we need to ask for God's forgiveness and that's what Easter's all about," he continued.

"This pandemic, this is the result of a fallen world that has turned its back on God," he added.

Drought causing water shortage amid coronavirus crisis in Chile

Published

on

With historically low river flows and reservoirs running dry due to drought, people in central Chile have found themselves particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus pandemic.

Years of resource exploitation and lax legislation have allowed most reservoirs in that part of the country to run dry.

"There are now 400,000 families, nearly 1.5 million people approximately, whose supply of 50 liters of water a day depends on tankers," Rodrigo Mundaca, spokesman for the Movement for the Defense of Water, the Earth and the Protection of the Environment, told AFP.

One of the main pieces of advice to protect people against coronavirus is to wash your hands regularly.

As confirmed COVID-19 cases in the United States surpassed 300,000 with more than 8,300 deaths, there was some encouraging news in Italy and Spain.

Europe continues to bear the brunt of the epidemic, however, accounting for over 45,000 of the worldwide deaths, and Britain reported a new daily high in fatalities.

There are now more than 1.17 million confirmed coronavirus cases around the world and there have been 63,437 deaths since the virus emerged in China late last year.
