    Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez expressed support for rapper Cardi B Friday after she lashed out at Trump and his “racist” supporters this week. “I do, I do,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said in response to a TMZ reporter who asked her if more people like Cardi B should speak up about politics. “I mean, Bronx girls are gonna re-open the government, okay?” she said. The socialist congresswoman also teased Mitch McConnell, saying, “We have voted to open the government and we know that we have secured Republican Senate votes to open the government, so all we need to do is have Sen....

    Cable news should keep booking as many freshman Democrats as possible. It seems they’re the only ones capable of telling the truth about their party’s intention on immigration. In an interview Monday on CNN, freshman Rep. Katie Hill, D-Calif., admitted that she’s in favor of building some new southern border wall barrier, but that her Democrat colleagues in Congress are refusing to offer any funding for it because it would force them to go back on their repeated claim that the wall is racist. Asked by anchor John Berman what she would say to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who...
  • Trump Shrugs Off Ocasio-Cortez Criticism: ‘Who Cares?’ (video)

    President Donald Trump had a nonchalant response to criticism from Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Monday, asking simply, “Who cares?” Ocasio-Cortez said last week that there is “no question” that the president is a racist, adding that “he manufactures crises like immigrants seeking legal refuge at our border.” At the time, the White House accused Ocasio-Cortez of “sheer ignorance” and cited the president’s support for criminal justice reform. (RELATED: Ocasio-Cortez Says ‘No Question’ Trump Is Racist) A reporter asked Trump directly about Ocasio-Cortez’s accusation as the president was departing the White House for a trip to New Orleans...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y) criticized CBS News Saturday night for what she considered lack of diversity in its team of reporters covering the upcoming 2020 presidential election. “This WH admin has made having a functional understanding of race in America one of the most important core competencies for a political journalist to have, yet [CBS News] hasn’t assigned a *single* black journalist to cover the 2020 election,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a tweet. “Unacceptable in 2019. Try again,” Ocasio-Cortez added.

    Julián Castro, the former housing secretary and former mayor of San Antonio, announced on Saturday that he would run for president, one of the most high-profile Latino Democrats ever to seek the party’s nomination. His first campaign stop will be in Puerto Rico, where he will speak on Monday at the Latino Victory Fund’s annual summit and meet with residents still struggling to recover from Hurricane Maria. Later in the week, his campaign said, he will go to New Hampshire. Mr. Castro, in prepared remarks that he was set to deliver in San Antonio on Saturday, said, “When my grandmother...

    A tragic death that was wrongly held up as a racial attack has forced many on the left to quickly backpedal, but a Democrat congresswoman is bizarrely doubling-down on her inflammatory rhetoric. Back on Dec. 30, a 7-year-old girl named Jazmine Barnes was shot and killed in Houston. Barnes was black, a fact that should not matter but quickly became a major factor in the case. At first, authorities thought a white man may have been involved in the crime. They posted details about a person of interest in the case, but made it clear that this was only one...

    A Georgia Democratic congressman repeatedly compared President Trump to Adolf Hitler during a fiery speech at a Baptist church in Atlanta this week. The Atlanta NAACP posted video online of Rep. Hank Johnson's speech in which he compared the president to the Nazi leader responsible for the killing of 6 million Jews during World War II. “Much like how Hitler took over the Nazi party, Trump has taken over the Republican Party,” Johnson said Tuesday. At another point, Johnson said, “Hitler was accepting of violence towards the achievement of political objectives. Trump encouraged violence against protesters at his rallies.” The...

    Basketball star LeBron James has apologised after sharing a lyric about "Jewish money" on social media - saying he thought it was a compliment. James was called out over the lyric - which comes from a song by US rapper 21 Savage - after he shared it with his 45.8m followers on Instagram. But James said it was not his intent "to hurt anyone" with Saturday's post. "Apologies, for sure, if I offended anyone," he told sports channel ESPN on Sunday. "That's not why I chose to share that lyric. I always [post lyrics]. That's what I do. I ride...

    More than 100 Academy members joined Winfrey, Disney chief Bob Iger and the talent behind 'Black Panther' — which hit theaters in February — for a toast to what Iger called a film that "actually had an impact on the world." Whether for books or political candidacies or Oscar hopefuls, there is no more coveted an endorsement than that of Oprah Winfrey, whose credibility and following enables her to mobilize the masses. Therefore, it was a major coup for Disney that Winfrey — on Monday night at the London West Hollywood hotel, in front of an audience of more than...

    A statue of Mahatma Gandhi, the famed Indian independence leader, has been removed from a university campus in Ghana's capital, Accra. University of Ghana lecturers began a petition for its removal shortly after it was unveiled in 2016 by India's former President Pranab Mukherjee. The petition said Gandhi was "racist" and African heroes should be put first. In the wake of the row, Ghana's government at the time said the statue would be relocated. Lecturers and students told the BBC that the statue, originally located at the university's recreational quadrangle, had been removed on Wednesday. The university confirmed this, saying...

    Two Minnesota cops were placed on paid leave Friday after a photo of a Christmas display with “racist” ornaments outside a precinct surfaced on social media. The tree, displayed outside the Fourth Precinct of the Minneapolis Police Department, was littered with police tape, an empty can of Steel Reserve malt liquor, a cup from Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, bags of Takis chips and packs of Newport cigarettes, CBS reported. Black Lives Matter Twin Cities posted the photo online last week and it quickly spurred outrage from members of the black community as well as local officials. “These pieces of trash were...

    Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith has won Mississippi’s Senate runoff, defeating Democrat Mike Espy despite controversy over recent comments. Hyde-Smith had 56 percent of the vote to Espy’s 44 percent when the Associated Press called the race with more than three-quarters of all precincts reporting. The result means Republicans will hold a 53-47 majority in the Senate next year. The runoff for the remainder of Thad Cochran’s term was held because neither candidate got a majority of the vote in a crowded race Nov. 6.

Discussing border patrol agents using tear gas, Rivera said. “This goes to my soul. Fulfilling my role as the designated pińata on Fox News, I want to say I am ashamed. The tear gas choked me. We treat these people — these economic refugees — as if they’re zombies from ‘The Walking Dead.’ We arrested 42 people, eight of them were women with children!

    What rewards do conquering heroes or heroines usually receive? Applause. Lots of money. Near boundless power. And, if enlightened, these leaders are allowed to lead. Think Revolutionary War General George Washington who went on to become the first President. And World War II General Dwight D. Eisenhower — another President. But, Nancy Pelosi, the first woman Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, the one who delivered some of the largest Democratic House wins in almost half a century, the one who turned the entire Northeast and reactionary Orange County blue — what does she get?

    Democrats took control of the House by flipping seats in the nation’s suburbs, which have long been political battlegrounds. But those victories rested on more than just the votes of college-educated white voters, whose shift away from Donald Trump and the Republican Party has drawn wide attention. People of color were also a large component of the Democrats’ victories in the suburbs—increasingly diverse communities that no longer fit the stereotype of racial homogeneity. They are more likely to live in the suburbs than in urban areas, and no matter where they live, they tend to vote Democratic. In the AP...
