Montana Republican Sen. Steve Daines on Monday was one of few members of Congress to unabashedly defend President Donald Trump’s racist Twitter rant.
“Montanans are sick and tired of listening to anti-American, anti-Semite, radical Democrats trash our country and our ideals. This is America,” said Daines. “We’re the greatest country in the world.”
“I stand with Donald Trump,” he concluded.

Fox News analyst Brit Hume pushed back on the general consensus that President Donald Trump‘s Sunday tweet tirade was racist.
In a Monday tweet, the veteran newsman said that the president’s comments were “nativist, xenophobic, counterfactual and politically stupid,” but could not be characterized as racist, “a word so recklessly flung around these days that its actual meaning is being lost.”
Trump’s “go back” comments were nativist, xenophobic, counterfactul and politically stupid. But they simply do not meet the standard definition of racist, a word so recklessly flung around these days that its actual meaning is being lost.
On Sunday, Trump fired tweets aimed at four freshman Democrats, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, and Rep. Ilhan Omar, telling them to go back to the countries they came from, despite three of the four

The National Republican Congressional Committee is denying that they doctored an image of former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick in their latest fundraising email.
Yahoo! News reported that on Wednesday, the NRCC sent out a message that included Kaepernick juxtaposed to President Donald Trump. The image calls Kaepernick “anti-American flag” in a dig at his reported objections to Nike’s plans to release a new pair of shoes themed around the Betsy Ross version of the flag.
The NRCC is being accused of altering the photo to make his skin look darker than it really is. A Democratic operative, speaking to Yahoo!, said “House Republicans are running on racism, plain and simple. It’s disgusting, it’s offensive and it should be fireable, but there’s no accountability in the Republican Party.”
NRCC communications director Chris Pack insisted to Yahoo! that “The photo was not darkened.”
Even so, the NRCC is being Continue reading "NRCC Denies Accusations of Darkening Colin Kaepernick’s Skin Color in Fundraising Email"
Rush Limbaugh went off on World Cup soccer star Megan Rapinoe Wednesday — claiming she’s “as anti-American” as Colin Kaepernick.
During a rant on his radio show hours after the World Cup champs were feted in New York City, Limbaugh accused Rapinoe of trying to score an endorsement contract by appealing to progressives.
“You know what I think this babe may be angling for? Kaepernick!” Limbaugh said. “She wants a Kaepernick deal with Nike! Damn straight! She’s angling for a Kaepernick. She’s showing Nike she can be just as anti-American as Kaepernick. ‘Give me a chance. Let me do the LGBTQ angle of Kaepernick.'”
Limbaugh went on to say, “They think this is the kind of stuff that’s going to defeat [President Donald] Trump. They think this is the kind of stuff that’s going to take Trump out. They think this is the kind of stuff that Continue reading "Rush Limbaugh Loses it On Megan Rapinoe: ‘This Babe’ is ‘Showing Nike She Can Be Just as Anti-American as Kaepernick’"
Sebastian Gorka got duped by a prank call to his radio show and proceeded to blast the jokester as “a little girl” for telling Gorka he was awarded journalist of the year by “Dipshit Magazine.”
The caller, “Jason,” began with effusive praise of Gorka, saying he “loved” the sound of Gorka’s voice.
“Radio is meant for you, sir,” Jason said.
Piers Morgan, sore loser that he is, cannot get over the U.S. Women’s soccer team winning the World Cup Sunday.
Abandoning any shred of self-awareness, Morgan griped about the women’s team’s celebration upon returning to the U.S.:
Jeez….I’m all for celebrating success but the insufferable smuggery of this lot is becoming very, very annoying.. https://t.co/4VaZvXg8TN
CNN election forecaster Harry Enten tweeted a poll Monday night asking users who they believe is most likely to be the Democratic nominee for president, but he didn’t include Bernie Sanders. And Bernie fans are furious.
Sanders, in most polls, trails only former Vice President Joe Biden. And yet when Enten surveyed his followers on Monday night, the choices he offered were Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, or “someone else.” The “someone else” option won the poll with 47% of the 34,000 votes.
Here’s what Bernie fans had to say about that:
With the evidence available more than a decade ago, federal prosecutors insisted that Epstein go to jail, register as a sex offender and put the world on notice that he was a sexual predator.

TheNew York Times published an article entitled “Do Americans Need Air-Conditioning?” and, Twitter did what Twitter does: twisted the debate into whether or not air conditioning was… sexist.
The article griped that office climate is gendered: “There is an oft-cited study published in Nature.com that notes how building temperatures, once set to the comfort preferences of 1960s-era men in suits, disregard the “thermal comfort” of female staffers.”
It said that this debate seems to arise every summer. “Come summer, Twitter invariably lights up with charges that air-conditioning is sexist, an engine of the patriarchy, in threads that in turn fire up conservative commentators eager to prove the daftness of the opposition.”
The Twitter storm seemed to begin when Atlantic writer Taylor Lorenz, half-trolling half-not tweeted the article with the hot take calling to ban AC:
Air-conditioning is unhealthy, bad, miserable, and
A new report indicates that Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents tried to humiliate a man from Honduras earlier this year while marching him through a migrant detention center.
CNN obtained emails written by an agent who saw the incident in early March, and they suggest that the Honduran man was paraded through the facility while he was forced to hold a piece of paper reading “Me gustan los hombre(s),” which translates to “I like men.” The agent was reportedly stationed at the El Paso Processing Center, and he saw another agent give the note to the Honduran migrant before instructing him to walk in front of a group of other detained migrants.
