My issue isn’t with giving her that platform. What happened to her husband is a tragedy, and she should get more attention. My issue is with Van Jones describing Trump’s comments as a historic moment, or what makes Trump presidential.
Can you send me more info about this? Do you have any photos? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
I’ve been trying to get in the Bone Zone for a while now, to no avail. This is frustrating, as I have some VERY important questions to ask Mr. Bone.
This is a very good question. I, too, would like to know the answer.
No, the walkout was about the Muslim ban. It was organized by the groups I mention in the piece. It happened to coincide with the DeVos confirmation decision.
Yeah, in retrospect that would have been worth mentioning (and that’s why he called Trump an idiot specifically). Thanks for pointing that out.
Some of the speakers, including Stringer, actually called Trump a “great unifier” for that same reason. Not sure that I would put that spin on Trump, but I do get the sentiment.
Here’s a Facebook Live broadcast I did with four women from New Mexico representing Indigenous Women Rise. Some of their fears under a Trump presidency — violence and racism escalating in border towns around reservations, assaults against the land and the environment, and sexual assault and violence against women.
We just passed by “Gaslight Square,” which I am definitely going to use as a euphemism for 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. starting tomorrow.
Update: the cinnamon bun was delicious and I have no regrets.
I just bought a cinnamon bun from Cinnabon and Joanna is shocked. And now I have buyer’s remorse.
Guys I just realized I left my garbage by my front door on my way out and now I am dreading coming back to New York.
Sanders, once again, demonstrates how it’s done. In the EPA hearing, Pruitt acknowledges that human activity plays a factor in climate change, but won’t acknowledge that— as most scientists agree — humans actually caused it.
Bernie Sanders arrives late to the EPA confirmation hearing, after appearing at Tom Price’s hearing, appropriately throwing shade at whoever scheduled two important hearings at the same time.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), who helped lead the effort to lift the more than 50-year embargo on Cuba, asks Ross a pretty straightforward question: As the guy who could potentially design U.S. trade policy for the next several years, what do you think of the decision to lift the embargo (one of the most historic…
From earlier in the confirmation hearing for commerce secretary, Ross said his first priority would be expanding exports.
He also said this: “I am not antitrade, I’m pro-trade. But I’m pro sensible trade.” It remains to be seen what “sensible” means, exactly, but Ross says America “should not put up with malicious…
Fun fact: The Dept. of Commerce oversees National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). At Ross’s hearing, Sen. Nelson presses Ross on whether he acknowledges climate change research, but Ross just won’t do it. He says he respects scientific findings in general, but is waiting to see what an upcoming report…
Ross’s remarks about trade interrupted briefly by protesters holding a banner and chanting, “Ross supports TPP. Ross offshores jobs.” They are quickly escorted out.
At the Commerce Secretary hearing, Ross addresses Nelson’s “extreme weather” concerns by talking about the need for self-sufficiency in the fishing industry and satellite technology. So far, no response to Nelson’s specific concerns of global warming.
Ooh Sen. Nelson goes in hard on climate change deniers, saying some folks will “go to any lengths to deny” climate change, including “gagging climate scientists.” He urges Ross, a fellow Floridian, to push “vital scientific research to inform the public” on extreme weather events and “not allow intimidation and…
