And that is, I believe we need a Constitutional amendment that protects the right to vote for every American citizen and to make sure that vote gets counted,” Warren said. “We need to put some federal muscle behind that and we need to repeal every one of the voter suppression laws that is out there right now. And I’ll tell you one more. We need to make sure that every vote counts. ” Then, turning to the Electoral College, she said this: “And you know, I want to push that right here in Mississippi. Because I think this is an important point. You know, come a general election, presidential Continue reading "Elizabeth Warren Calls for the End of the Electoral College: ‘Every Vote Counts’"

He made those comments that we could have played. He did condemn what happened in New Zealand immediately. Likewise, when you play these comments this was at a time, many of those comments a few days after 14 lives were lost in San Bernardino and someone got in this country on a K-1 Visa and conducted those murders… That person does hate us.” Host Erin Burnett then pointed out Trump was talking about an “an entire religion” not just a bad person.

Joining in on the internet asshattery of the past week, Rep. Steve King‘s verified Facebook account posted a violent meme fantasizing about red states bashing blue states and boasting about how many bullets “one side” has.

The bathroom snark was, no doubt, a reference to transgender restroom use, an issue that is frequently used in far-right dog whistles. Predictably, King’s move was widely panned on Twitter, including by some who noted the timing and called him a “white nationalist.”

A new Justice With Jeanine Pirro will not air tonight. Instead, the Fox News channel will air a re-run of the documentary series Scandalous in the 9pm slot. Pirro’s absence from the air is noteworthy not only because the Fox News host rarely misses her Sunday show but because her absence comes just one week after her controversial remarks on Rep. Ilhan Omar. During her last Sunday open, Pirro said this, speaking of the freshman Congresswoman: “Think about this. She’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat party…So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from? Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested.” In response, Fox News condemned Pirro’s remarks. “We strongly condemn Judge Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar,” the statement provided to Mediaite read. Continue reading "Jeanine Pirro Off the Air a Week After Fox News Condemned Comments About Ilhan Omar"
