Joy Behar Thinks Trump Had Ulterior Motive for Helping Johnson, It’s Truly Absurd

This is just nuts.

Published

Joy Behar, co-host of “The View,” recently weighed in on the commuted sentence of Alice Johnson, a move made by President Trump after a recent meeting with reality TV superstar Kim Kardashian, stating that he only agreed to help the woman because it would give him access to Kardashian’s social media following.

Kim Kardashian has a super large following thanks in part to her own stardom, but also because she is the wife of legendary rapper — and Trump supporter — Kanye West.

This might be one of the most absurd thing you will probably hear today. Notice the usage of the word “probably,” as the left has ways of surprising you with the true depth of their own nuttiness.

Sara Haines said that Kardashian, who met with the president a week earlier to discuss prison reform and to plead Johnson’s case for clemency, deserved a lot of the credit for bringing it to fruition. She explained, “This is an instance where she used her platform and educated herself, and I say bravo.”

Bear took a much more cynical approach, saying that Trump’s interest in the matter was likely more political than personal.

“Kim also has 112 million followers on Instagram and 60 million on Twitter. So, you know, if he is thinking of running again, he’s got that nice little constituency over there, so that is not a coincidence. … He has motives.”

Meghan McCain turned the conversation back to Kardashian, noting that by meeting with the president she was able to advance the dialogue on her own terms — an opportunity she has accused sports figures of squandering when they refuse to attend White House events in protest.

Why in the world would Trump want to have Kardashian’s followers? He’s the President of the United States and one of the most controversial figures in our nation’s political history. He has plenty of followers just based on his own personality.

The vast majority of Kim’s social media audience is likely liberal and aren’t simply going to jump ship to support Trump over one action, nor will they do so because of the influence of Kardashian herself. So what does he hope to gain by commuting Johnson’s sentence?

It’s time for Behar to hang it up.

NYPD Officer Involved In Death Of Eric Garner Learns His Fate

This is not going to sit well with liberals.

Published

on

The New York City police officer who was involved with the July 17, 2014 death of Eric Garner has learned his fate, and it’s probably going to send the radical left into absolute hysterics. The Department of Justice will not bring charges against Officer Daniel Pantaleo. Here are the details from TheBlaze: The Black Lives Matter movement called for justice in Garner’s death, saying that the use of a choke hold was a disproportionate response to the alleged illegal sale of cigarettes. The police union has contested that what Pantaleo did was a “seat-belt hold” not a choke hold, a crucial difference since the NYPD prohibits the use of choke holds by officers. A grand jury had already decided not to indict Pantaleo. New York City paid Garner’s family a $5.9 million settlement in 2015. The Department of Justice did not make any decision in this case. Rather, it plans to let the time expire on the five-year window that it had to bring charges against Pantaleo before the statute of limitations protects him from prosecution. Those five years are up on Wednesday. The only remaining punishment that Pantaleo could face at this point comes from the NYPD itself, which is still conducting a disciplinary proceeding. This is news that most definitely is going to spark some sort of protesting, hopefully without violence, as we all know how deeply divided the country is right now along racial lines. Whether or not this officer is actually responsible for Garner’s death is something we may not ever really know, despite the video evidence that exists. Not everything is so black and white. Let’s hope cooler heads prevail and people are able and willing to have civil discussions on the topic.

Social Media Launches Hateful Attacks On Hispanic Woman Working As Customs Officer

Shameful.

Published

on

A woman who reportedly works as a customs officer for the U.S. government has come under heavy attack from radicals on the left for being a Hispanic female in immigration enforcement. Because apparently, since she’s Hispanic, she should automatically be sympathetic to those illegally crossing the border. Sounds pretty racist, doesn’t it? From TheBlaze: Kiara Cervantes, a young Latina woman claiming to work as a customs officer, is taking fire from the internet after she became known as #ICEBae on Twitter. Cervantes, who was reportedly one agent proving security for Vice President Mike Pence during a recent U.S. border visit, went viral on the internet after a photo of her standing outside a detainment center hit the internet. According to Newsweek, which asked which agency she belongs to, “Cervantes said she could not provide any comment until she has spoken with her ’employer.'” On Monday, she tweeted about the attention — which came in waves. She also shared a photo of herself in her uniform to Twitter, with a waving emoji. According to the New York Post, Cervantes wrote, “Just woke up … saw that I needed to make a video so y’all could believe that it’s me. It’s me — I’m a Customs officer based in Texas and yeah, I don’t know what else to say.” Later on Monday, she tweeted, “WOW I am in awe. Thank you all for the support! My job is so hectic at this moment but I am grateful. I love protecting my country! … And I love my supporters!” https://twitter.com/kiarace24/status/1150920190043000832 As is often the case in these types of situations, Cervantes spent a good majority of the day responding to these miscreants. “I can’t agree with concentration camps,” she wrote. “But … this station in particular isn’t meant to be a holding facility…
