Morning Joe attacks ‘elites’ for ignoring Trump supporters: Don’t call them racist, they’re in pain

Two videos part 1 and 2, much more : raw story

Whether it’s Bernie Sanders or Donald Trump, Joe Scarborough seems to agree with the GOP nominee that the media is biased against them.

According to Scarborough, media elites and the “coastal elites” ignore or outright mock supporters of extremist candidates like Sanders and Trump. With Sanders, he explained that the media ignored thousands of people showing up at rallies. When it comes to Trump supporters, the media focuses almost exclusively on the negative aspects of Trump and his supporters. When discussing his supporters, the media elites talk about the racism, xenophobia, sexism and homophobia. The “deplorables,” co-host Mika Brzezinski, recalled. They miss the stories about how many of these supporters see hope in the Republican nominee.....


Cops Called on Groom Practicing Wedding Dance, With Heartwarming Results

*Republican hypocrisy:

“If Trump wins, the election is legitimate and the people have SPOKEN. If Hillary wins, it must be RIGGED.

Donald Trump is accused of forcing himself on over ten women. STICK TO THE ISSUES. Bill Clinton accused of misconduct by 4 women. His wife should be disqualified from office.

Hillary Clinton has not directly mentioned any of Trump's accusers. She need to stop distracting from real issues. Trump has a press conference with 4 of Bill Clinton's accusers, gives them front row seats to the debate, and mentions them at a debate. Great job taking the gloves off president Trump.

Bill Clinton cheats on his wife. Impeach him. Trump proudly brags about sexual assault (has 5 kids with 3 wives and has cheated on his wives). Elect him.

Hillary oversaw the department of state while 4 people died in an embassy attack. JAIL HER. 2 Republicans were in office while over 200 people died in embassy attacks. No problem.

Immigrants don't pay taxes. Round them up and kick them out. Trump doesn't pay taxes. He's a business genius.

Independent fact checkers found Trump is likely the least truthful candidate in the history of politics. He tells it like it is. Hillary is statistically more truthful than most politicians according to fact checkers. She is the most untrustworthy person ever.

Hillary's foundation only spent 87% of their donations helping people (average amount is 75%). CROOKED. Trumps foundation paid off his debts, bought paintings of him, and made political donations to avoid investigations for a fake university while using less than 5% of funds for charity (and he got shut down by NY State). So savvy... Put him in the white house.

Trump made 4 billion dollars in 40 years, when an index fund started at the same time with the same "small loans" he received would be worth $12 billion today... without a trail of bankruptcies, thousands of lawsuits and burned small business owners. He's a real business whiz. Hillary took a loss of $700k. She's a criminal.

Trump is the first candidate in the modern era not to release his tax returns, and took a billion dollar loss in 1 year. Genius. Hillary releases 40 years of taxes. Corrupt. Trump denies saying things (on the record) he actually said (on the record), he's just telling it like it is.

Your arguments are thin. Your ignorance of reality is shocking. Your double-standards are offensive, and your willingness to blindly support him and recycle the rhetoric is absurd. Your opinion is not fact. Your memes are not news articles. And your hypocrisy is not a platform."

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Says She Never Should’ve Waded Into Colin Kaepernick Controversy

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is walking back comments she made earlier this week about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision not to stand during the the national anthem.

In an interview to promote her first book, My Own Words, Ginsburg told Yahoo’s Katie Couric that the football player’s stance was “dumb.” A few days later, Kaepernick replied that the justice’s criticism was “disappointing,” according to The Mercury News.

In a statement Friday, Ginsburg appeared contrite about her remarks.

“Barely aware of the incident or its purpose, my comments were inappropriately dismissive and harsh,” she said. “I should have declined to respond.”

Ginsburg’s response suggests she wasn’t up to speed on the impetus behind Kaepernick’s protest or what it meant in the context of the Black Lives Matter movement and demonstrations against police brutality.

More than a few fans and followers of the 83-year-old justice were not too happy with her comments.

Slate’s Mark Joseph Stern wrote a thoughtful column about the mishap and why many progressives who otherwise support people of color’s struggles for equality still have a hard time standing in complete solidarity with them.

“What would emerge [from the controversy] is a justice — admirable but imperfect, like any icon — who argues passionately for minority rights in the abstract without fully understanding how each new generation puts those principles into practice,” Stern wrote. He pointed to rulings in which Ginsburg has stood as a staunch defender of voting rights for black people.

“One can disagree without being disagreeable,” wrote the founders of a Tumblr page dedicated to the Notorious RBG, Ginsburg’s internet moniker. “Regarding her recent remarks about athletes’ peaceful protest, we respectfully disagree.”
