The View’s Meghan McCain calls for cops to be charged for ‘blatant murder’ of George Floyd

“The View” co-host Meghan McCain called for charges against the Minneapolis police officers over the fatal arrest of George Floyd.

The four officers lost their jobs over the death, which prompted widespread protests that were met with tear gas and other violent tactics from police.

“There was huge amounts of protesters that took to the streets last night, and I think people are sitting in their homes and seeing what is blatantly a murder of a man on camera, and George Floyd, I watched the entire video,” McCain said. “I know we didn’t want to show the entire thing, but it’s very graphic. It’s very violent.”

McCain described the video in graphic detail, and says it showed a black man being murdered by police as he and onlookers beg for his life.

“It is very violent, very, and I think when you are sitting at home and seeing a blatant murder of an unarmed black man on video, you can understand why people are reaching a fever pitch because it doesn’t seem like this is stopping, and it’s not just happening in Minneapolis,” McCain said. “It’s happening all over the country everywhere. This is a systemic problem nationally, and what’s interesting on top of that is ABC has released footage this morning of George when he was originally arrested, and he was not resisting and he’s not struggling and they handcuffed him and they take him to the side of a wall, and he was being compliant in every way.”

“So I think the question that so many of us have is, how do you go from somebody being not resisting arrest to complying with police officers to having your neck suffocated nine minutes later and you dying?” she added. “These police officers should 100 percent be on trial for murder. They’re already on trial in the court of public opinion, but I don’t know how much — not just African American communities, but Americans in general can withstand this. There is so much anger and frustration, and I really worry about these kind of riots going across the country because I just don’t think Americans can handle this anymore. It’s just so blatant and egregious, and apparently if you are a police officer, and I would like to say there are great police officers everywhere. It’s not a blanket statement, but when you see people like this who are just going to murder someone in broad daylight, it obviously puts a mark on all of them.”

GOP senator blasted after immediately calling for vote on RBG replacement: ‘Only a ghoul would tweet something like this’

Embattled Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) urged Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to move forward with a vote on whomever President Donald Trump nominates to replace Ruth Bader Ginsberg on the United States Supreme Court.

"This U.S. Senate should vote on President Trump's next nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court," McSally said.

McSally lost her 2018 bid for the United States Senate, but was appointed a senator anyway by Republican Gov. Doug Ducey. Polls show her trailing Democratic challenger and former astronaut Mark Kelly.

As the race is Special Election to fill a vacant seat, Kelly could be sworn in as early as November 30 if he prevails.

Mitch McConnell flattened by ex-White House official for plan to rush through Ginsburg replacement

Published

Appearing with CNN host Anderson Cooper, former White House adviser David Gergen rained hell on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) after he announced he would rush through a vote on a replacement for the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg just hours after it was announced she had passed away.

Gergen, who served in the White House under both Republican and Democratic presidents seemed beside himself with anger when he talked about McConnell who notoriously blocked Merrick Garland from the court after being nominated by former President Barack Obama.

"Mitch McConnell has just thrown down the gauntlet, we're going to have a titanic fight over this," Gergen exclaimed. "Yes, as Jeffrey [Toobin] has said, it will mobilize a lot of people on the right, the hunger still to overturn Roe vs Wade to get social issues on the 6-3 court, they will think Donald Trump has delivered on his promises."

Brit Hume urges Trump not to ‘put the country through this’ by replacing RBG before the election

Published

Fox News contributor Brit Hume reacted to the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by cautioning Republican leaders against replacing the liberal icon before the November election.

Hume made the remarks on Fox News after noting that both President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have previously vowed to hypothetically have a nominee approved before the election.

"Lindsey Graham back in 2018... said that even if were were just into the primary season, he would not want to see a nominee advance in the election year," Hume explained. "I think the circumstances may have changed since [McConnell] outlined that."
