C-SPAN caller dresses down Trump’s favorite ‘shameless’ OANN anchor on live TV: ‘The hypocrisy is unreal’

Published

One America News Network (OANN) anchor Liz Wheeler on Tuesday faced accusations that she uses her platform to spread divisive language.

During an appearance on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal program, Wheeler was challenged by a caller named Pat on the independents’ line.

“I view the divisive language that’s been spewing out of people’s mouths of individuals like you,” Pat said after explaining she was a History teacher. “And the hypocrisy is unreal to me.”

“It’s really difficult for me to go in our classrooms and teach our students about the Constitution, the democracy in this country,” Pat continued. “The leadership in this country — I don’t care if it’s a Republican or a Democrat — is not teaching our children… It is shameless, it’s hypocrisy, it’s sad. And it makes me just want to cry.”

Pat said that she was “tired of the divisive language of people like yourself and others, whether they are from either party. We have got to do better to bring our country together.”

Wheeler seemed to take the remarks as a personal attack.

“I’m sorry that you’re feeling emotions,” she quipped. “You accused me of using divisive language. Do you have an example? Because taking a political stance, in and of itself, is certainly not divisive. It’s how you treat other people… for example, I’m treating you very respectfully.”

“This is a pure example of what I’m saying,” Pat replied. “Most people like Ms. Wheeler, they don’t listen. All they do is come back with something that doesn’t make sense.”

“I’m telling you that our children are dying,” she added. “Because they are being told and are living a lie because of the hypocrisy of the leaders in this country. I think we need to stop — we need to stop and listen.”

Pat charged: “This country is divided because of the language you are using.”

Wheeler interrupted to demand an “example” of her divisive language.

“We should identify first — as I do — as a Christian,” Wheeler opined. “And then an American and then whatever party represents your political views.”

Before ending the segment, Wheeler launched an attack on fellow Catholics who support abortion rights.

“The policies that are being perpetuated by the Democrat [SIC] Party, especially those that are anti-life,” Wheeler ranted. “Those are antithetical to the Catholic doctrine. The Catholic doctrine calls abortion an egregious sin against human life.”

She also suggested that Mexico has failed to pay for President Donald Trump’s border wall because Democrats have refused to “appropriate the money.”

Trump blasted as ‘pathological liar’ for claiming stock market is ‘starting to look very good’ after 1,000 point crash

Published

The COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic spreading across the world has present challenges for President Donald Trump.

In addition to the public health challenge facing the administration, Trump's 2020 reelection campaign is also faced with an economic crisis as the virus disrupts global supply chains.

"Investors around the world retreated from stocks and piled into haven assets including government bonds and gold, reflecting escalating worries that the coronavirus will disrupt the global economy," The Wall Street Journal reported Monday. "The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped more than 1,000 points—its biggest point decline in more than two years; the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note approached a record low; and gold prices climbed for the eighth straight session to a seven-year high."

Here are 11 of the most popular progressive policies for candidates to run on — and 5 of the least popular

Published

New polling from the progressive pollster Data for Progress, described in a new piece Monday at Vox, points the way forward for Democrats looking to oust President Donald Trump from the White House and enact a liberal policy agenda.

Progressives often argue that their plans are broadly popular with Americans, and that these ideas are only prevented from becoming reality because of an obstinate Republican Party weaponizing racism and misinformation, archaic political institutions that stymie significant efforts at reform, and corruption across the two parties that allows special and corporate interests to undermine the popular will. And there is a fair amount of truth in this idea — some progressive idea are remarkably popular, and there's no good reason they haven't been implemented yet.

US economy faces long-lasting damage from Trump’s trade war: fed official

Published

on

The trade conflict of the past two years likely left a mark on the US economy, even with the recent agreement to defuse the situation, a Federal Reserve official said Monday.

The outbreak of the new coronavirus in China adds another risk factor to the outlook, which otherwise seemed poised to provide steady growth, said Loretta Mester, president of the Federal Reserve's regional bank in Cleveland.

"At this point, it is difficult to assess the magnitude of the economic effects, but this new source of uncertainty is something I will be carefully monitoring," she said of the epidemic.
