Fox News’ Chris Wallace put Fox contributor Lisa Boothe under pressure on Sunday when the network contributor refused to answer his questions about President Donald Trump’s racist go-back-where-you-came-from tweets. After Wallace finished his grueling interview with White House adviser Stephen Miller, Boothe joined him for his Fox News Sunday panel to talk about the ongoing firestorm surrounding Trump’s feud with Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley. When Wallace turned to Boothe, he said the question of whether Trump’s tweets were politically smart “misses the real point,” so instead he asked “was this wrong? Was it over the line to say ‘go back where you came from?'” “I wouldn’t defend, necessarily, the tweet that he sent out,” Boothe said before she invoked John McCain’s famous rebuke to a supporter of his who called Barack Obama an “Arab” in … [Read more...] about Chris Wallace to Lisa Boothe: Were Trump’s Tweets Wrong?
Former assistant U.S. attorney Mimi Rocah said on MSNBC this morning that Bernie Sanders “makes my skin crawl” and suggested he’s not really a “pro-woman candidate.” The panel on Up with David Gura was previewing the upcoming Democratic debates and a likely face-off between Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. As they got into the differences between the two candidates, Zerlina Maxwell said their approaches clearly differ and in Warren’s case “I actually know in detail how she wants to get there,” while when it comes to Sanders, “there are certain policies like Medicare for All that he put out a lot more detail than some of his other ideas, I don’t have as much of the detail of how we’re going to transform the health care industry.” “Elizabeth Warren on the one hand will tell me exactly how,” she continued. “Sometimes Bernie Sanders does not. So I think it’s very important to have them on the same … [Read more...] about Mimi Rocah: Bernie Sanders ‘Makes My Skin Crawl’

Megan Rapinoe joined CNN’s Van Jones last night and blasted President Donald Trump over his attacks on the Democratic “squad” in Congress. Jones asked Rapinoe, “How are you such a big powerhouse of love in the middle of all this nonsense?” “I don’t do well when I have a frown on my face,” she said. “I think everyone’s exhausted of all the fighting and the sort of negativity.” Jones asked her what her reaction was to Trump going after the “squad” in Congress. She said, “It’s disgusting, to be honest.” “To say it’s disappointing, it doesn’t even come close,” Rapinoe added. “I’m just, like, honestly waiting for a racial slur to come out. We’re not far from it at all.” She noted how even some Republicans have been saying it’s “too far for even us.” Jones brought up how Rapinoe made it clear she wouldn’t go to the White House … [Read more...] about Megan Rapinoe Rips Trump’s ‘Disgusting’ Attacks
