QAnon played a major role in the January 6th insurrection on the Capitol. More than a few of the mob members could be seen wearing QAnon paraphernalia. Other insurrectionists could be seen waving QAnon flags.
When he was coming into office, Joe Biden said that his goal was for the US to average 1 million vaccines a day. A month into office, the country is shattering that goal and the average is up to 1.6 million shots a day.
The nation is, at the moment, very polarized. The last two elections could have swung on just around 100,000 votes. So it behooves both the Democratic and Republicans parties to embrace all types of voters.
In mid-January, only 10 Republican congresspeople were willing to vote to impeach Donald Trump. All of them have taken heat from their parties. Many have been censured by their state GOP’s.
Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger not only voted to impeach Trump, he’s been a consistent critic of the former president since the November election. In addition to facing censure from the Illinois GOP, he’s also felt heat from his own family.
Donald Trump’s leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic was an utter disaster. Pfizer and Moderna, though, were at the least, able to create vaccines that could help combat the virus.
And Trump certainly took credit for the vaccines on his way out of office. Pro-Trump Fox News, however, is now attacking the vaccine. On his Tuesday night show, Tucker Carlson claimed that health experts are lying about the treatment’s effectiveness.
For years Tucker Carlson was telling his audience that white nationalism doesn’t exist. The Fox News host even continued to make this argument after his top writer, Blake Neff, resigned over racist and misogynistic remarks he had made.
Just a few weeks ago, a mob of Donald Trump supporters stormed the United States Capitol. A number of those participating in the insurrection belonged to militia or white supremacist groups.
The actions of those rioters were completely indefensible. That doesn’t mean, however, that people weren’t going to try. On his Tuesday night show, Tucker Carlson argued that white supremacists shouldn’t be called domestic terrorists.
The Republican party and their cable news surrogates are big on hyperbole. This was seen tonight when multiple GOP Reps. lost their minds over a metal detector placed in the House.
But you can always count on Fox News to take it to the next level. Especially when the segment involves Glenn Beck and Tucker Carlson. On Tuesday night, Beck compared Twitter‘s treatment of Conservatives to Germany‘s treatment of Jews during World War II.
Comedian John Mulaney brilliantly described that it’s like to be an American with Trump in the White House in his 2018 special Kid Gorgeous. He referred to Trump as, “a horse in a hospital,” meaning absolute chaos is always right around the corner.
Donald Trump has exhausted nearly every strategy he had to overturn November’s election results. Once his January 6th attempt fails, there will be no cards left in his deck.
And while Trump may not have yet come to terms with the fact he’s leaving the White House, most of the hosts on Fox News have. And the best way for them to cope with their loss is to start assigning blame.
Through no fault of her own, Jill Biden’s educational background became a national topic of discussion this week. In a hacky and misogynistic op-ed published in the Wall St. Journal, a guy named Joseph Epstein claimed that the future first lady hasn’t earned the right to be called Doctor.
In 2016, the influence of Big Tech was very beneficial to Republicans. Facebook’s complete refusal to remove any kind of misinformation helped propel Donald Trump to the White House.
The GOP, however, has spent much of the last 4 years slamming social media companies. Donald Trump, himself, has been especially upset about Twitter slapping fact checks on some of his most egregious tweets.
The first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic largely took place in certain areas of the country. The hardest hit states were full of Democrats with New York, Washington state and New Jersey being hit the hardest.
The last time a pandemic hit the United States was during the 1918 Spanish Flu. And with pandemics only hitting the country every one hundred years or so, it can be difficult for the government to figure out the best way to handle it.
In late 2015, early 2016, nearly 20 contenders fought it out for the Republican nomination. Many of them had significant political experience, working as senators, congresspeople or governors of large states.
The principles of the Black Lives Matter movement are clearly stated on the organization’s website. The BLM website reads, “Our intention from the very beginning was to connect Black people from all over the world who have a shared desire for justice to act together in their communities.”
Fox News host Tucker Carlson praised the teen who shot and killed two protesters in Kenosha, WI for "maintaining order."
Dr. Anthony Fauci has spent his entire medical career helping people survive. Whether he was fighting the AIDS virus or Ebola, the renowned immunologist did his job in a completely apolitical manner.
Donald Trump, however, has politicized the COVID-19 pandemic. And in turn, the surrogates of the President have seen fit to attack Fauci. Among the most relentless of these attackers is Tucker Carlson.
The top writer for Fox News's Tucker Carlson has resigned after he was caught secretly posting racist and sexist remarks online.
Tammy Duckworth has dragged Fox News host Tucker Carlson following his repeated attacks on her and his claim that she doesn’t love the United States, despite losing both legs in Iraq.
The Democratic senator wrote an op-ed in The New York Times on Thursday entitled “Tucker Carlson Doesn’t Know What Patriotism Is.”
