Last Exit From Autocracy

  Last Exit From Autocracy America survived one Trump term. It wouldn’t survive a second.If the answer is yes, be ready for more. Much more.

Trump says that the economy was the best in the history of the country all the time. 4. "But sort of I have been brutalized for the last four years. I used to do well, before I decided to run for politics. It ran on the White House grounds while Trump was in his official role as President of the United States.

Rick Santorum (PA) on Thursday conveniently had a difficult time hearing a question about President Donald During a panel discussion on CNN , host Poppy Harlow asked Santorum if Trump ’s tariffs would “Did the what?” Santorum asked. “Could the tariffs complicate all of that?” Harlow said again.

Pro-Trump CNN commentator Rick Santorum really attempted to make the claim Thursday night that nobody ever called Donald Trump—who entered the national political arena by peddling the racist birther conspiracy theory against President Barack Obama—“a racist before he was president of the United States.”

Needless to say, Santorum’s comments caused quite a stir on the CNN set.

Moments after a surprisingly orderly and calm presidential debate, at least compared to last month’s chaotic and disastrous shoutfest, CNN political reporter Gloria Borger brought up one of the more fiery exchanges between Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden on Thursday evening, which was about race in America.

Donald Trump says he will release his full 60 Minutes interview

  Donald Trump says he will release his full 60 Minutes interview President Donald Trump announced Thursday he will release the'full, unedited' version of his interview with '60 Minutes' after CBS released a video excerpt of the sit-down. He called Lesley Stahl's questioning of him 'vicious' and an 'attempted takeout' while arguing he gave 'magnificently brilliant' answers to her questions. 'I will soon be giving a first in television history full, unedited preview of the vicious attempted “takeout” interview of me by Lesley Stahl of @60Minutes. Watch her constant interruptions & anger.

Former President Barack Obama delivered an often-incredulous and blistering account of his successor's first four years in office on Wednesday in Philadelphia, making his most direct attacks on President Donald Trump to date both on substance and on a personal level.

Multiple former administration officials say Trump has an aversion in intelligence briefings to hearing And in discussions about race, Trump has brushed off efforts to address historic racial inequality as "The nature of the presidency is that sometimes you don't choose which challenges come to your desk.

“I’ll tell you another thing that came out of Joe Biden’s mouth that was surprising to me because it was so stunning and frank,” Borger noted, adding that the former vice president outright called Trump a racist.

“But he made a statement, sort of a blanket statement here, and he said, ‘This guy’s dog whistle is about as big as a foghorn, period,’” she continued. “And we’re used to that kind of language, I guess, in this campaign, but one candidate just called the other candidate a racist and, you know, it’s not out of the ordinary.”

Santorum responded that Biden “got into the gutter” when he accused Trump of racism, to which Borger said she “won’t make that argument” because there “are reasons to believe that is true.”

“Nobody called Donald Trump a racist before he was president of the United States. No one,” Santorum shot back, causing the entire CNN panel to blow up over the sheer brazenness of the former Pennsylvania senator’s lie.

4 winners and 5 losers from the last Biden-Trump debate

  4 winners and 5 losers from the last Biden-Trump debate Joe Biden was a winner — as was moderator Kristen Welker.The first debate was a chaotic disaster thanks to Trump’s constant interruptions; the second one didn’t happen because Trump refused to agree to debate virtually while he had Covid-19 (they had dueling town halls instead). This time around, better moderation and the handy use of a mute button allowed both candidates to express their thoughts — leading to a mix of actual substantive policy exchanges and less-than-coherent mudslinging about families and personal finance.

“ Racism was here before Donald Trump and sadly it will be here after,” she remarked. “What’s being ignored here is the role that Barack Obama played in all this,” Santorum replied. “I mean, you can’t just go from, ‘We elected our first black president and all the sudden we get Donald Trump .’

CNN contributor Jeffrey Lord again called on Democrats to apologize for slavery, which ended more Lord appeared Tuesday morning on the cable network to defend an image shared by Trump on “The sheriff’s image is out there everywhere,” Lord said . “This has been around in America (for) well

“That’s not true,” anchor Anderson Cooper shouted over the fray before referencing Trump calling for the execution of the Central Park Five, who were five teenagers of color accused of rape who were later exonerated.

“I understand that case,” Santorum conceded. “I get it. I get it.”

Borger jumped back in, asking Santorum to ask fellow CNN commentator Van Jones how hard it was to get the president to agree to criminal justice reform, something Trump now touts as proof that he’s “done more for African Americans” since Abraham Lincoln. She further noted that it was just three weeks ago that Trump refused to condemn the far-right group the Proud Boys during the first debate.

Jones, who has worked with the White House on police and justice reform policy, said it “was complicated” before running down Trump’s history of racist comments and actions.

A second Trump term would mean severe and irreversible changes in the climate

  A second Trump term would mean severe and irreversible changes in the climate No joke: It would be disastrous on the scale of millennia.During the final presidential debate Thursday night, both candidates were asked how they would combat climate change and support job growth. President Donald Trump offered few specifics, merely saying that that, “We have the Trillion Trees program. We have so many different programs. I do love the environment.

Navarro said it’s “appropriate” for Cohen to be investigated because “one of the things that distinguishes us from many other countries is that in “You’ve been demeaning the president in this manner for so long,” Cortes complained, before Navarro called him out for controlling the segment

A Monday political panel on Don Lemon went completely off the rails when Donald Trump ’s Cortes shot back that Wallace was a Democrat when he ran and called Sellers’ accusation “utterly Cortes ultimately attacked Navarro, saying that she is never going to win if all she does is shout racism .

“First of all, the right wing always says nobody called him a racist before he was president. It’s just not true,” the former Obama administration official said. “Once he started on the birther thing, that shocked a lot of people—Donald Trump did have allies in the Black community. Donald Trump had been a supporter of civil rights causes.”

After Jones reiterated that Trump’s birtherism “changed his relationship with the Black community,” he likened the president boasting about his administration’s accomplishments for African Americans to “trying to put together a peanut butter and ketchup sandwich.”

Santorum then parroted Trump by touting the low minority unemployment rate—pre-COVID-19, of course—before saying it “doesn’t make sense” to call Trump a racist.

“Well, listen, there are two things that can be true at the same time,” Jones flatly stated.
