Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says "no question" Trump is a racist in 60 Minutes interview

Mod: You know what is scaring the crap out of the Republicans? Democrats have just now elected really young politicians who tell obvious truths as bluntly as possible, and couldn't care less about what the tiresome old fools running the GOP think of them. Generational change is being delivered, no prisoners taken.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says "no question" Trump is a racist in 60 Minutes interview (CBS News link): In a 60 Minutes interview that touched on a number of subjects, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said there's "no question" President Trump is racist. The comment came after correspondent Anderson Cooper asked Ocasio-Cortez, "Do you believe President Trump is a racist?"

"Yeah. Yeah. No question," Ocasio-Cortez replied. The rookie congresswoman cited the president's rhetoric as proof.

"When you look at the words that he uses, which are historic dog whistles of white supremacy," Ocasio-Cortez said. "When you look at how he reacted to the Charlottesville incident, where neo-Nazis murdered a woman, versus how he manufactures crises like immigrants seeking legal refuge on our borders, it's night and day."

Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, called the president, "a symptom of a problem."

"The president certainly didn't invent racism," Ocasio-Cortez said, "But he's certainly given a voice to it and expanded it and created a platform for those things."

Mod: And then, by golly, there is this.

Donald Trump is Less Popular Than Nancy Pelosi for the First Time in His Presidency (CNN link): Poll of the week: A Gallup poll out this week finds that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has a favorable rating of 38% and an unfavorable rating of 48%. That's bad enough for a net favorability rating of -10 points. The same poll also showed that President Donald Trump's favorable rating is 40% to an unfavorable rating of 58%. That means his net favorability rating is -18 points.

What's the point: The leading figures in the US government right now are not popular. For the first time during Trump's presidency, though, Trump is more disliked than Pelosi.

    3. Do not, I repeat do not try to explain anything factual to someone who gets their mis"information" from Fox news. Or in other words you can try to explain it to them but you cannot make them understand it. There is a lingering segment of society that is antieducation "I don't need no book learnin' no how..." Their kinfolk thought that only boys needed an education, girls maybe enough reading skills to read the bible.

  3. My SIL and daughter came over Christmas to visit. He is stationed in Germany and is a captain there. I asked about Trump and he said everyone hates him for the way he has treated the generals. I was somewhat surprised and rather glad they have seen through his BS and will not be for him come 2020. Donald Trump, your military says f-you.

  20. Conservatives lose it after Christian Bale thanks Satan for 'inspiring' him to play Dick Cheney

    Actor Christian Bale accepted the Golden Globe award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for his role in the film “Vice.”

    Bale plays former Vice President Dick Cheney in a story that details the unique role he had in George W. Bush’s White House.

    According to Rotten Tomatoes, “Bale’s transformation is a sight to behold.” He donned prosthetics to achieve some of the key characteristics of Cheney, but capturing the so-called “evil” of Cheney was all Bale.

    “Thank you Satan for the inspiration,” Bale said about the biographical drama-comedy role.

    He then offered a challenge to other actors, saying it was a kind of “competition.”

    “I will be cornering the market on charisma-free assh*les,” he said. “What do you think, Mitch McConnell next? That would be good, wouldn’t it?”

  31. BREAKING: Trump Reportedly Looking For Primetime Spot to Address Nation -- But Networks Reluctant

    With the Federal government shutdown in its 17th day, President Donald Trump is reportedly seeking airtime on the major broadcast networks to address the nation on Tuesday night.

    According to The New York Times, the White House has officially made the request to the networks to interrupt their primetime schedules.

    But Times reporter Michael Grynbaum says that at least two of the networks are hesitant.

    “[S]kepticism about handing over airwaves for political statement,” Grynbaum wrote.
