Ouch…This is bad.
Ouch…This is bad.
This is Trumps Chief of Press…It looks like something on SNL this child is so clueless.
Apparently even CNN’s Don Lemon has had enough to Trumpazoid babble. Here he cuts the mike, and dumps the interview …
Jeffrey Lord, CNN analyst ruffled some feathers last week claiming the KKK is a “leftest group”. I’m sure raising the eyebrows of many historians as well as members of the KKK. .. Not to mention journalists wh have watched the KKK and other white supremacist groups gather around Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
Last night, in a panel discussion having to do with the Super Tuesday Primary results…Lord and Van Jones had some fireworks.
Don was searching for an angle to support his boy, Trump…But it didn’t work. Tavis UNLOADS!
Tavis Smiley, author and public television talk show host, hit back at Donald Trump for calling him a racist, noting that the GOP presidential candidate had failed to condemn the white supremacists who support his 2016 campaign.
The host of Tavis Talks on PBS went on the ABC talk show This Week and said Trump is an “unrepentant, irascible religious and racial arsonist” for his comments calling undocumented immigrants criminals and calling for a ban on Muslims entering the country. In response, Trump tweeted that Smiley is a “hater & racist.”
When asked about his comment by CNN host Don Lemon on Monday night, Smiley repeated it and also said the news media is asking the wrong questions when it comes to Trump’s prominence among American voters.
“What troubles me quite frankly is that we keep talking about… Trump rising in the polls as if somehow this is happening miraculously,” Smiley said.” It’s happening in part because, as your lead-in shows with these now white supremacists supporting him — it’s happening because he’s appealing to a certain base voter in this country. He’s appealing to the dark side, the night side of America and that’s why he’s rising in the polls. And we ought not cover him without condemning him for doing that.”
Smiley then chided Trump about his tweet.
“First of all, for a guy with a Wharton degree, he’s got to do better than ‘hater and racist,’” Smiley said. “Can we just remove the word ‘hater’ from our lexicon?”
He then question how Trump could conclude that Smiley was a racist after failing to condemn a white supremacist group for making campaign robocalls for his campaign.
“I’m on your program tonight because I made a comment about Donald Trump yesterday on a morning show,” Smiley said. “And within a matter of hours, Donald Trump had tweeted about me… So if that story broke over the weekend about this white supremacist — again, he can’t be responsible for who is supporting him. But how can he get around to calling me a racist and a hater in less than 24 hours, but since the weekend he hasn’t gotten around to condemning a white supremacist for supporting his campaign.”
He then pointed out that “nobody in the media is asking these questions.”
Activist Laura Cowan –
CNN contributor Van Jones slammed Cuyahoga County, Ohio Prosecutor Timothy McGinty on Monday for what he called his office’s failure to find any reason to charge two police officers in connection with the death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice last November.
“That is completely preposterous on its face,” Jones said. “And yet, this prosecutor went above and beyond the call of duty to spend extra money and took extra time to get these cops off. Prosecutors do not act this way under ordinary circumstances. Usually, they throw the book at you and then they tell you, ‘You explain to a judge and jury why you’re innocent. This particular prosecutor did the opposite of most prosecutors in this case.”
McGinty announced on Monday that a grand jury decided not to indict officers Frank Garmback and Timothy Loehmann, who drove close to the boy as he wielded an air pellet gun. Video of the incident shows Loehmann shooting and killing Rice almost instantly after jumping out of his patrol car.
However, Jones said, McGinty brought experts in to testify to the jury on behalf of the officers, a marked departure from the norm.
“To say that nothing happened here, nothing happened that should go to a jury — how about this: no medical aid after the kid is killed? How about criminal medical neglect?” Jones asked. “How about the fact that, under ordinary circumstances, a police officer would never put themselves in peril and then shoot their way out? The fact that the police officer drove into peril and then shot his way out — there’s not a traffic ticket you could issue? There’s not a misdemeanor here?”
Once again pitching the same old tired racist diversion. In the previous post the article discussed “implicit bias”…This is a case of explicit bias. I mean, why is there such total and complete rejection of any level of accountability for the Police even in cases where egregious crimes have been committed by Officers visible by our very eyes on videos recorded at the scene?
Clown Cop here is pointing at everyone…Except the guilty. Lawlessness and corruption by the Police Department has in no way impacted anything else in Chicago!
Think CNN needs a new top cop pontificator. This guy is obviously a Republican bigot.
CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin called out the network’s law enforcement analyst, Harry Houck, on Tuesday for referring to a black activist from Chicago as “you people.”
After Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced that he had fired Police Supt. Garry McCarthy over fallout from Laquan McDonald’s shooting, Baldwin asked Houck and NAACP Youth President Stephen Green for their reaction.
Houck took the side of the outgoing police chief, saying that Emanuel should have been made to resign instead.
“This mayor should be impeached, he should resign,” the former NYPD detective opined. “The National Guard should go into Chicago, take that city back from the thugs.”
Green explained that activists had called on the Justice Department to do a “top-down investigation over the overall patterns and practices of the Chicago Police Department.”
“This isn’t new,” he pointed out. “When you have a police department that has its own domestic Guantanamo Bay [Detention Center], when you have neglect on the South Side of Chicago, when you have cases that go unheard as it relates to young black children and queer and transgender voices, we have a problem in the city of Chicago.”
Houck charged that Green was refusing to call for Emanuel’s resignation because both men were Democrats.
“Aren’t you tired of dead black children on the streets of Chicago?” Houck exclaimed at Green. “Not from cops, but from thugs shooting at each other?”
“Of course, I’m tired,” Green replied. “I’m also tired of the neglect, I’m also tired of the economic depravity and education disparities in the city of Chicago. So, I’m not asking for a new face, I’m asking for a completely different song.”
“The only way to take back the inner city of Chicago is for police to go in there with aggressive police work,” Houck argued. “You’ve got to be able to point the fingers at the bad guys.”
Green, however, observed that Chicago’s “system” of oppression had “gone on for generations.”
“You want to talk about policing?” Green said. “Let’s also talk about education, let’s also talk about poverty, let’s also talk about housing. It is more than one issue and so we’re asking for complete and overall reform. Your message is very singular.”
“Maybe,” Houck shrugged. “I’m just tired of the police getting the brunt of everything that’s going on inside the inner city of Chicago.”
“You people,” the law enforcement analyst continued before he was interrupted by Baldwin.
“It’s not ‘you people,’ Harry,” the CNN host sighed. “Come on.”
“You people who live in Chicago,” Houck shouted, “should start voting for maybe another person, maybe a Republican, instead and see how he — a Republican — can come in there and straighten that city out.”
“We’re asking for transformation and change in the city of Chicago and we’re not silent,” Green remarked. “Much to your dismay and much to your upset, we’re not quiet.”
“For 20 years, you’ve been silent,” Houck grumbled.
