‘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.

Scientists fight online coronavirus misinformation war

Published

on

With cat photos and sometimes scathing irony, Mathieu Rebeaud, a Swiss-based researcher in biochemistry, has nearly tripled his Twitter following since the coronavirus pandemic began.

With 14,000 followers, he posts almost daily, giving explanations on the latest scientific research and, in particular, aims to fight misinformation that spreads as fast as the virus itself.

He is among a growing number of doctors, academics and institutions who in recent weeks have adapted and amplified their scientific messaging in hopes of countering what has been termed an infodemic -- a deluge of information, including widespread false claims, which experts say can pose a serious threat to public health.

Published

on

In early May, Florida attorney Daniel Uhlfelder made news by dressing up as the Grim Reaper in an attempt to scare people from crowding beaches during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Days later, he escalated by laying out body bags on the steps of the Florida capitol building in Tallahassee.

He escalated further on Saturday by announcing he would be handing out body bags to Florida beachgoers and started a fundraiser with the funds going to two progressive Political Action Committees.
