‘She’s on the way to losing’: Internet blasts ‘snarling Trumpist’ Martha McSally for flipping out on reporter and then doubling down on her insults

Published

on

Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) fled CNN reporter Manu Raju as he was asking her about the new findings revealed by Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas.

Instead of answering questions, or politely saying she can’t talk at the moment, McSally attacked Raju as a “liberal hack” and stormed off. He was asking her if the new evidence should be included as part of the trial.

The moment was posted to Twitter by Raju and then retweeted by McSally, who, again, called Raju a liberal hack on Twitter.

McSally is in a difficult election race, where she’s currently losing to astronaut Mark Kelly. She was appointed to her seat after losing the Senate race in Arizona in 2018.

It comes on the heels of Senators being given a flashcard with key phrases to use when trying to avoid reporters. Most of the things on the card involve the phrases “please excuse me,” and explanations of why they need to rush away. “You’re a liberal hack,” doesn’t appear. It’s unknown why the Senate felt the need to print such cards and Senators were unfamiliar with ways to politely excuse themselves.

‘People’s lives will be lost’: Psychiatrist warns ‘sociopath’ Trump is ‘getting worse’ — and failing in coronavirus response

Published

on

President Donald Trump's psychological problems are getting worse and could be consequential as America faces a potential COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell on Thursday interviewed Dr. Lance Dodes, a former assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

"As you pointed out, Lawrence, this man is about himself. He really is not about the country, he's not about public health," Dr. Dodes said of Trump.

"Although he has already severely damaged the country by being a psychopath or sociopath -- in many ways, he's damaged democracy -- I think people's lives will be lost now," he warned. "Individual lives will be lost because of the way he's mishandling the coronavirus issue."

‘Something really rotten’: Here’s the evidence of extensive voter suppression in Georgia’s notorious 2018 election

Published

on

As the 2020 presidential campaign cycle grinds on, there’s renewed concern about the 21st century’s newest form of warfare: cyber-sabotage of government systems, including elections and online disinformation intended to incite unrest. But as Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, a documentary from Brave New Films, makes clear, partisan voter suppression tactics with 20th-century roots remain and can thwart multitudes of voters from changing their state’s political leaders.

The real story behind Trump’s new lawsuit against the New York Times

Published

on

Wednesday was an ominous day for freedom of the press in this country, and I want to tell you why.

You may have heard or seen that President Trump filed a libel suit against the New York Times. Perhaps you weren’t surprised: the president is known to frequently disparage the Times even as he reads it obsessively. Borrowing a page from what I’ve referred to before as a Mount Rushmore of totalitarians, Robespierre, Hitler, Stalin and Mao, Trump loves to call the press the “enemy of the people.”
