Donald Trump Jr. Destroys Media for Hypocrisy Over Clinton’s ‘All Blacks Look Alike’ Comment

Totally destroyed her.

Published

Donald Trump Jr. definitely inherited his father’s social media skills and his ability to take on any challenge that comes his way, a reality put on full display by the brutal zinger he tossed out at Hillary Clinton.

Clinton recently made a comment about all black people looking the same, which you’d think in our hypersensitive, race obsessed political climate people would be falling over themselves to rebuke her for being a racist.

They aren’t though, and that’s enough to get Trump Jr.’s goat.

If you missed it, here’s what happened. During a question-and-answer session over the weekend, Hillary Clinton was asked her about Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ).

“I adore him,” Clinton said.

“But what do you think of him saying, ‘Kick them in the shins’?” her host, Recode’s Kara Swisher, asked. But that paraphrase wasn’t about Booker, but rather Eric Holder, who was attorney general under former president Barack Obama. Earlier this month, Holder said of Republicans, “When they go low, we kick them. That’s what this new Democratic Party is about.”

So Clinton corrected Swisher. “Well, that was Eric Holder,” she said. “Eric Holder, oh, Eric Holder, sorry,” Swisher said. Then Clinton said: “Yeah, I know they all look alike.” The audience laughed along with Hillary.

Swisher quickly jumped in. “No, they don’t.” Then she praised Hillary for the remark. “Oh, well done,” she said as the audience laughed and applauded.

Of course, had a Republican — or Trump himself — made the clearly racist quip, the media would have had a field day. Instead, virtually no one in the mainstream media reported the comment.

Enter Donald Trump Jr. Retweeting the original story in the Daily Wire, Trump wrote: “Imagine @realDonaldTrump said the exact same thing in the exact same way. What would the media response be? Hysteria? Outrage? It would likely be beyond all that. Because I’m hearing crickets right now after Hillary said it. Wonder why.”

What really makes this hilarious is that Clinton just made a speech about how political correctness is really just politeness. The irony here is extremely thick:

“What’s often called political correctness is politeness. It’s respecting the diversity that we have in our society,” she said. “The Democratic Party is a much more diverse political party, attracting people who are African-American, Latino, LGBT … And I don’t think it’s politically correct to say, we value that.

“I don’t want to go around insulting people, painting people with a broad brush,” she said. “That’s childish.”

It seems that Hillary isn’t one for taking her own advice.

‘RUST’ SHOOTING: Alec Baldwin Not Out of The Woods Yet, Says Santa Fe District Attorney

Baldwin has suggested that he won’t be charged, but the local DA has other ideas.

Published

The story surrounding the shooting death of cinematographer Halya Hutchins continues to grow stranger by the day, and a district attorney in New Mexico just dropped a major bombshell in the direction of Alec Baldwin.

Baldwin was rehearsing for a scene when the firearm he was holding discharged live ammunition, killing Hutchins and injuring others.  The gun somehow had a live round in it, despite there being a number of ethical and legal reasons why this should not have been possible.

To further confuse things, Baldwin has wildly suggested that he never pulled the trigger of the gun – something that experts are going to have to find a way to prove in order to clear Baldwin’s culpability.

Now, a local litigator has suggested that Baldwin should be prepared for the worst.

On Friday, First Judicial District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies clarified that it is still very possible for Alec Baldwin to be “criminally culpable” in Hutchins’ death depending on what the investigation yields.

“Certain individuals may be criminally culpable for his/her actions and/or inactions on the set of Rust,” Carmack-Altwies told Deadline.

Carmack-Altwies asserted that she will “exercise my prosecutorial discretion to its fullest, including filing charges that are supported by probable cause.”

The possibilities are numerous.

The district attorney further clarified that “everyone” handling firearms on the set of Rust had a duty to follow safety protocols.

“Everyone involved in the handling and use of firearms on the set had a duty to behave in a manner such that the safety of others was protected, and it appears that certain actions and inactions contributed to this outcome,” Carmack-Altwies the attorney said.

During the interview in which Baldwin suggested that he never pulled the trigger, he also insinuated that he’d spoken with the local sheriff’s department, and that there was some sort of understanding between he and them regarding the lack of charges to be brought.

US State Pushes to Make Mask Mandates Permanent

The move is sure to have freedom advocates in the Beaver State enraged. 

Published

on

The American landscape is currently littered with a hodgepodge of coronavirus precautions, as each state, country, town, and business takes the COVID-19 pandemic at their own level of seriousness.

This has, of course, made it somewhat difficult for any individual to navigate their day in compliance to the ever-changing rigidity of the pandemic’s threat.  And, furthermore, it has led to some questionable decisions by local leaders looking to simplify the issue.

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) assembled a Rules Advisory Committee (RAC) earlier this week to address a permanent indoor mask mandate in the state. Oregon is one of a few states that still retain one nearly two years into the pandemic.

The committee included several community stakeholders, including representatives from the hospitality industry, the business sector, and faith communities, according to local ABC affiliate KATU.

Local leaders attempted to downplay the “permanent” status of the mandate.

Dr. Paul Cieslak, the medical director for communicable diseases and immunizations with OHA, explained to KATU that OHA’s potential “permanent” indoor mask mandate is not necessarily permanent because it can be repealed.

“Permanent means indefinite. It doesn’t necessarily mean permanent,” Cieslak said. “We can repeal it as well, but we are only allowed to have a temporary rule for 180 days, and anything that goes beyond 180 days, we cannot extend it.”
