GOP Senate Nominee Corey Stewart’s Ties to White Supremacists Run Deeper Than Previously Reported

Corey Stewart speaking at a 2017 campaign rally.

While Corey Stewart recently disavowed alt-right figure Paul Nehlen and claimed he was not aware of his racist views when he called him his “personal hero,” the Republican Senate nominee’s ties to white supremacists go much deeper than just Nehlen. Stewart, a member of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors who won the GOP nomination in the Virginia Senate race and received an endorsement from President Donald Trump, held a rally in 2017 with numerous white supremacist activists, has been pictured with racists all over the state of Virginia, and paid a white supremacist family for “fieldwork consulting” and used them as his “bodyguards” while campaigning. According to information published by the campaign finance transparency initiative VPAP, Stewart’s campaign paid Donna Randall, a neo-Confederate activist who said she attended the white supremacist Unite the Right rally, $50 for “fieldwork consulting”

Trump Says He Was ‘Kidding’ About Wanting ‘My People’ to ‘Sit Up at Attention’ Like Kim’s People

President Donald Trump claimed he was “kidding” when he said he wanted people to treat him like the North Korean people treat dictator Kim Jong Un, as he told a reporter on Friday that critics of the comment “don’t understand sarcasm.” “[Kim] speaks and his people sit up in attention,” Trump said while appearing on a wild interview with Fox & Friends’ Steve Doocy. “I want my people to do the same.” After the remark led to significant controversy among journalists and pundits, a CNN reporter asked Trump about it, saying, “What did you mean just now when you said you wished Americans would sit up at attention?” Trump replied: “I’m kidding. You don’t understand sarcasm. Hey, who are you with? …You’re with CNN? Hey, you are the worst.” However, Trump — fresh off his summit with the dictator that resulted in a budding bromance Continue reading "Trump Says He Was ‘Kidding’ About Wanting ‘My People’ to ‘Sit Up at Attention’ Like Kim’s People"

Twitter Melts Down Over Trump’s Insane 51 Minute Media Blitz: He’s ‘Still Talking…’

President Donald Trump wandered onto the White House lawn this morning for an announced “unannounced visit” to his favorite morning show Fox & Friends, which caused some of the most insane Trumpian comments in recent memory and triggered a collective sigh from Twitter. “Wow, the highest rated (by far) morning show, @foxandfriends, is on the Front Lawn of the White House,” Trump tweeted early this AM. “Maybe I’ll have to take an unannounced trip down to see them?” While filming at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy spoke with the president on topics like his budding bromance with Kim Jong Un, who Trump praised and voiced a desire to have “my people” treat him like the North Koreans treat their murderous dictator. The president continued his tirade by calling leaders in the FBI “scum,” suggesting that James Comey should be put behind bars, and slamming the Continue reading "Twitter Melts Down Over Trump’s Insane 51 Minute Media Blitz: He’s ‘Still Talking…’"

The View Mocks Trump’s Bromance With Kim Jong Un: He ‘Knows The Real Enemy is Canada’

The hosts of The View mocked Donald Trump for his blooming friendship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, as the group joked that the president thinks “the new enemy is Canada” and joked that he “has praise for every dictator that ever lived.” Today’s airing of ABC’s daytime talk show began with the crew discussing Trump’s summit with Kim in Singapore earlier this week and included a clip of the president calling the dictator “a very smart guy” and a “great negotiator” who he understands. “Trump knows that the real enemy is Canada,” Joy Behar joked. “I’m sure he has praise for Pol Pot and Idi Amin and every dictator that ever lived.” She continued the riff: “Hannibal — whatever that guy’s name was. Attila the Hun — ‘They were all great!'” Meghan McCain then turned the conversation serious, pointing to the North Korean regime’s Continue reading "The View Mocks Trump’s Bromance With Kim Jong Un: He ‘Knows The Real Enemy is Canada’"

Laura Ingraham: I Don’t Think ‘God is a Soy Boy’

Laura Ingraham has officially discovered the “soy boy” meme — an pseudoscience-based insult picked up by the alt-right in their battle against men who they deem too liberal in appearance or politics. It was only a matter of time before the Fox News host stumbled upon the online right’s favorite insult since “cuck” (basically a euphemism for “race traitor”) as Ingraham broke out the “soy boy” dig on Wednesday night while theorizing over the physical appearance of God. “God can’t look like the kid in the Apple commercial, like Mac versus PC,” Ingraham argued while discussing research that theorized what Americans think God looks like. “That’s like a millennial thing. God has skinny jeans, a man bun, and he’s a soy boy.” She continued: “God is a soy boy? I don’t think so.” Ingraham’s term for the opposite of God comes from the longstanding bro-science idea that products containing Continue reading "Laura Ingraham: I Don’t Think ‘God is a Soy Boy’"

Chris Cuomo Says Trump’s Opposition to AT&T-Time Warner Merger is About ‘Reinforcing’ His Own Power

CNN host Chris Cuomo claimed President Trump’s opposition to the recently approved AT&T-Time Warner merger was about “reinforcing the power of” the president, not checking the power of corporations. “President Trump’s attack on the [AT&T-Time Warner] merger was never about keeping power from the few,” Cumo said on tonight’s airing of Prime Time. “It was about reinforcing the power of one. President Donald J. Trump” Cuomo, whose employer CNN is a controlled by Time Warner, was referencing a federal judge’s decision today which allowed AT&T and Time Warner to complete their $85 billion merger, despite Trump’s Justice Department attempting to block the deal by claiming it creates an entity that is too powerful. Trump himself passionately decried the merger and even made it a campaign issue, saying in one speech that he “will not approve [the deal] in my administration because it’s too much concentration of power in the hands Continue reading "Chris Cuomo Says Trump’s Opposition to AT&T-Time Warner Merger is About ‘Reinforcing’ His Own Power"
