CNN host Brianna Keilar on Thursday blasted President Donald Trump over a tweet in which he boasted that “suburban housewives” would vote for him because he would protect them from Black Democratic Senator Cory Booker.

“The ‘suburban housewife’ will be voting for me. They want safety & are thrilled that I ended the long running program where low income housing would invade their neighborhood. Biden would reinstall it, in a bigger form, with Corey Booker in charge!” the president tweeted on Wednesday.

“That’s both racist and sexist,” Keilar remarked. “First of all, that word, ‘invade,’ it is very loud dog whistle he uses when he talks about non-white people coming to where white people are. Second, doesn’t it seem like he’s still living in an era where Elvis tops the charts, where women are just June Cleaver caricatures?”

She then played a clip from a 1994 interview, in which Trump admits that “I don’t want to sound too much like a chauvinist — but when I come home and dinner’s not ready, I go through the roof.”

Senate Dems blast ‘corrupt’ nomination of Amy Coney Barrett: ‘This entire process is illegitimate’

Published

President Donald Trump on Saturday nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the United States Supreme Court -- and Democrats were livid.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) linked the nomination to the Affordable Care Act and the COVID-19 pandemic.

"A vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a vote to eliminate health care for millions in the middle of a pandemic," Schumer wrote. "Democrats are fighting for Americans' health care."

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, ripped the nomination for coming so close to the election.

Joe Biden responds to Trump picking Amy Coney Barrett for the US Supreme Court

Democratic 2020 nominee Joe Biden released a statement shortly after President Donald Trump nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett for the United States Supreme Court.

"Election Day is just weeks away, and millions of Americans are already voting because the stakes in this election could not be higher. They feel the urgency of this choice – an urgency made all the more acute by what’s at stake at the U.S. Supreme Court," Biden wrote.

"They are voting because their health care hangs in the balance. They are voting because they worry about losing their right to vote or being expelled from the only country they have ever known. They are voting right now because they fear losing their collective bargaining rights. They are voting to demand that equal justice be guaranteed for all. They are voting because they don’t want Roe v. Wade, which has been the law of the land for nearly half a century, to be overturned," he explained.

Republicans poised to lose safe House seat after gun-toting extremist ousts incumbent

Republicans may be poised to lose what was considered a safe seat in the U.S. House of Representatives after a far-right upstart knocked out the GOP incumbent in the 2020 primaries, according to The New York Times.

Lauren Boebert owns the cafe named Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorodo. In March, she ousted Republican Rep. Scott Tipton in the GOP primary.

"Despite the decidedly conservative tilt of the sprawling, 29-county district — composed of pockets of high-end ski town liberalism like Aspen and small, economically pressed ranching and farming communities — her race with Diane Mitsch Bush, a former Democratic state lawmaker and university professor, is close. The contest is not only a clash of cultures in a state that has steadily grown more liberal, but it is also an example of why Republicans are struggling to regain ground in the House," The Times reported.
