‘It’s a lie’: CNN host busts Trump spokesman for falsely claiming the president denounced the Proud Boys

Published

on

CNN’s John Berman on Wednesday busted Trump campaign spokesman Hogan Gidley for falsely claiming that President Donald Trump condemned the Proud Boys, a far-right gang whose founder three years ago defended Holocaust denial.

During Tuesday’s presidential debate, Trump was asked specifically whether he would condemn the Proud Boys, and the president instead urged them to “stand back and stand by.”

When asked about this by Berman, Gidley falsely said that the president had condemned the organization.

“This is a reprehensible group,” Gidley said of the Proud Boys. “The president in the clip you just played, when asked by Chris Wallace, if he would condemn the groups he said sure. He said it many times just not last night.”

However, the video clearly shows that while the president expressed a vague willingness to condemn white supremacists, he specifically gave the Proud Boys instructions to “stand by” when asked about them, as Berman pointed out when he forced Gidley to watch the clip.

After being confronted with this evidence Gidley went on a rant about Joe Biden’s past remarks discussing his willingness to work with segregationist senators.

Berman, however, wouldn’t let him off the hook.

“It’s a lie… saying the president condemned white supremacists,” he said.

Catholic paper comes out against Amy Barrett’s nomination in scathing editorial: ‘A relativist dressed in originalist drag’

Published

on

In an op-ed published in the National Catholic Reporter this Wednesday, the outlet's Editorial Staff called on the U.S. Senate to reject the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.

"We believed it was wrong for the Senate to consider this nomination in the first place given the precedent set four years ago when Justice Antonin Scalia died in February, nine months before the election," the op-ed reads. "Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to even hold hearings on the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland, saying repeatedly that the American people should have a say in the matter. This year, when the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg created a vacancy less than nine weeks before Election Day, McConnell has seen fit to ram through the nomination."

Randal Thom, the unofficial ringleader of the "Front Row Joes" who've packed into the president's rallies since 2016, was killed Monday afternoon while returning to his Minnesota home after taking part in a pro-Trump flotilla in Florida's Jupiter Inlet.
