  • Clint Eastwood on Donald Trump’s Racism: ‘Just F—ing Get Over It’

    08/03/2016 3:45:49 PM PDT · by springwater13 · 128 replies
    Clint Eastwood thinks America’s “p---y generation” needs to “just f–ing get over” Donald Trump’s “racism.” In an interview with Esquire published Wednesday, the actor/director/producer said young America — which he has dubbed both the “kiss-ass” and “p---y” generation — needs to stop calling things racist. “[Trump’s] onto something, because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up,” he said. “We’re really in a pussy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist.”

    Trump met criticism from his Republican opponents with mocking nicknames and scornful insults. But it didn't stop there. Using the same tactics with reporters, he has often responded to tough or probing questions -- as he did during a fraught exchange on Tuesday -- with angry, often personal, attacks. Here are some of his most pointed reprisals. ABC News reporter Tom Llamas called out Trump for exaggerating the initial totals. "Mr. Trump, writing a $1 million check is incredibly generous, but the night of the Iowa fundraiser, you said you had raised $6 million," Llamas began. "Clearly you had not....

    The Hill ^ | January 21, 2016 | Bradford Richardson
    Republican primary front-runner Donald Trump late Wednesday pinned blame for his scriptural gaffe - saying "Two Corinthians" instead of "Second Corinthians" - on evangelical activist Tony Perkins. "Tony Perkins wrote that out for me - he actually wrote out the 2, he wrote out the number 2 Corinthians," Trump said on "CNN Tonight with Don Lemon." "I took exactly what Tony said, and I said, 'Well, Tony has to know better than anybody.'" The slip-up drew laughs from the crowd at evangelical Liberty University and has called into question the religiosity of the billionaire businessman. But Trump said he has...

    Trump told supporters: “I only like polls that treat me well.” DES MOINES, Iowa, Dec. 12 (UPI) -- As the Des Moines Register prepares to release its key poll in the Iowa primary, Donald Trump slammed the paper calling it "dishonest." The paper previously found itself on Trump's bad side after it published an editorial in July calling for the real estate mogul to end his presidential campaign. He responded by refusing press credentials to Register reporters at his events. Trump knocked the paper at an event Friday in Des Moines: "You have one of the most dishonest right here...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 12/10/15 | GABBY MORRONGIELLO
    Donald Trump's incessant criticism of longtime Republican strategist Karl Rove continues, with the leading GOP presidential hopeful now calling Rove an "establishment flunky." In separate tweets Thursday, the brash billionaire accused Rove, a former senior adviser to President George W. Bush, of making "false statements" both in print, as a columnist for the Wall Street Journal, and on TV, as a Fox News contributor. The tweets come less than 24 hours after Rove published his latest column, titled "Trump is the Democrats' Dream Nominee," in which he raises questions about the Republican front-runner's electability.

    Trump Doesn’t Represent the Conservative Base Jonah Goldberg. Dec 11 There’s a tendency in politics to mistake personal animosity for ideological animosity. Consider Bill Clinton. His staggering dishonesty, tackiness, and scorn for the rule of law aroused a lot of anger from the Right. But he wasn’t really that left-wing. Oh, he was certainly more liberal in his heart than he let on, but he also worked from the assumption that this was a center-right country, and that limited what he could get away with. Clinton ran for president the first time by “triangulating” against the base of his own...

    One day after a report that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) questioned Donald Trump's "judgement" in a private event, Trump called out Cruz for criticizing him behind close doors but refraining from negative comments in public. Looks like @tedcruz is getting ready to attack. I am leading by so much he must. I hope so, he will fall like all others. Will be easy! .@tedcruz should not make statements behind closed doors to his bosses, he should bring them out into the open - more fun that way! Cruz has so far refrained from bashing Trump in public. After Trump announced...

    ...a Northern Ireland politician has said. The attraction in Sichuan province, about 930 miles from the sea, will let hundreds of people at a time experience the shipwreck. The Titanic was built in east Belfast. Former Lord Mayor of Belfast Jim Rodgers said he had asked the Chinese firm behind the 1bn yuan (Ł100.7m) project to reconsider their plans. He said that while it was a "great idea" to build the Titanic replica at the Romandisea Seven Star International Cultural Tourism Resort, "to have a simulation of an iceberg collision is going a step too far".

Continue Reading ABC News' Jon Karl, who's been getting face-time with Bachmann in Waterloo in advance of her formal campaign announcement, played a clip of the web video in which Wallace said, "I messed up. I'm sorry." When Karl asked if she accepts the apology, Bachmann brushed aside the question this way: "I think that it's insulting to insinuate that a candidate for president is less than serious."

    'Fight the Smears' 2.0 launched, mocks No. 1 best-seller as delusional 'joke' Why is the White House in full defense mode against a book by a small publisher contending Barack Obama is not legally eligible to be president? Today, the Obama re-election campaign launched an all-out attack on a brand new book critical of Obama, "Where's the Birth Certificate," by bestselling author Jerome Corsi, Ph.D., calling it delusional, laughable and a "joke." If this sounds like major déjŕ vu, it's because the Obama election campaign did exactly the same thing in 2008 when it mobilized a major assault on Corsi's...

    OAKLAND, CA.---Years ago we mourned the loss of Rosa Parks, Mother of the Civil Rights Movement, also the death of Congressperson Shirley Chisholm, the first African American woman to run for the presidency of the United States. These events were devastating for African Americans. Mrs. Coretta Scott King, The First Lady or Matriarch of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States passed away in December 2006. The contributions of these three powerful, educated, and influential African American women caused them to be a positive permanent part of American history. Mrs. King was the founder and main supporter of the...

    Conservative radio host and Fox News personality Glenn Beck fired back at Mike Huckabee on Friday, saying the former Arkansas governor was "co-opting" liberal talking points and should consider staying out the race if he's so "thin-skinned." There are "really tough issues that real conservatives will have with Mike Huckabee," Beck said on his radio show of the politician, who's weighing another run for president in 2012. "If, sir, you are this thin-skinned about your politics, it might be best for you to stay on the sidelines" and not run, he added. It's the latest salvo in a week-long back-and-forth...

    Florida governor Rick Scott spent Monday at a luncheon with African-American lawmakers, speaking to the group about the upcoming legislative session. In doing so, Mr. Scott seems have set off a debate over race and politics. “I grew up probably in the same situation as you guys,” Mr. Scott said to the group of 20 Democrats. “I started school in public housing. My dad had a sixth-grade education.” A number of state Democrats objected to the assumption. State Rep. Betty Reed said she was offended by the remark, adding “He assumed that everyone [[n the room] was poor and that...

    Ridiculing it as "a silly question," Democrat Barack Obama pledged Wednesday he would resist any overtures to run for president or vice president before the end of his six-year term as a U.S. senator. "I was elected yesterday," Obama said. "I have never set foot in the U.S. Senate. I've never worked in Washington. And the notion that somehow I'm immediately going to start running for higher office just doesn't make sense. "So look, I can unequivocally say I will not be running for national office in four years, and my entire focus is making sure that I'm the best...
