Associate professor of media design David Carrell walked through transcripts of Congressional interviews with former digital director turned ex-campaign manager Brad Parscale.

“The Cambridge Analytica saga breaks wide open again,” he tweeted on Monday. “The proof is finally being revealed. We always knew the truth was right there in the data.

He cited Channel 4 News which cited a Trump campaign data leak, exposing how 3.5 million Black Americans were listed as “Deterrence” in an effort to get them to not vote.

When Parscale testified to Congress, Rep Jackie Speier (D-CA) asked Parscale if the campaign targeted people like “white men.”

“I did not target by race specifically in GOTV and/or persuasion efforts,” Parscale testified under oath.

The new leaked data revealed that Parscale lied.

He was also asked, “Did you participate in a voter suppression operation targeting African Americans? ”

Again, he lied, saying, “no.”

Sunday, Parscale barricaded himself inside his Ft. Lauderdale home with an arsenal of weapons claiming that he would kill himself. A friend of his who is an officer ultimately got him to come out and he was taken to the hospital. Police records show an unfortunate history of spousal abuse. Trump allies have blamed Democrats.

GOP senator offended LDS community after likening Trump to a ‘selfless’ Book of Mormon hero: report

Politics and religion are colliding out west after comments a Republican senator made while stumping for the president.

"Sen. Mike Lee drew criticism from members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints this week after comparing President Donald Trump to Captain Moroni, a heroic and selfless figure in the Book of Mormon," The Arizona Republic reported Friday evening.

"To my Mormon friends, my Latter-day Saint friends, think of him as Captain Moroni," Lee (R-UT) said, pointing to Trump. "He seeks not power, but to pull it down. He seeks not the praise of the world or the ‘fake news,’ but he seeks the well-being and the peace of the American people."

Al Franken warns voters Mitch McConnell ‘is not as charming as he looks’ on HBO’s ‘Real Time’

Published

Former Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) showed off the sense of rumor that put him on "Saturday Night Live" during a Friday night appearance on HBO's "Real Time" with Bill Maher.

The two politically-minded comedians had a fascinating debate on what would happen if President Donald Trump refuses to leave office on January 20, 2021.

Franken said that would be a good thing, as it would mean Trump lost and would be escorted from the premises. Maher, however, had far less faith in America's institutions.

The two agreed to disagree on the topic.

Franken urged viewers to vote for Democrats in Senate races, warning that if Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) remains in power he would block everything a potential Joe Biden administration might try to accomplish.

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher reviewed the latest news on the Friday night before 2020 election.

"Four days until the election," he noted. "As Stormy Daniels once said, 'Let's just get this over with!'"

He noted the huge turnout and said, "the Supreme Court said some of the votes may even be counted."

"Trump has not been this scared of the mail since the draft," he joked.

Maher also took on the "Trump thugs" and counseled voters on an obscene comment they could say to MAGA poll watchers.

The host also discussed Trump's super-spreader events and the COVID-19 outbreak in the White House.
