Tomi Lahren Makes Insane Claim: When Hillary Clinton Attacks Trump ‘She’s Actually Attacking Americans’

Published

on

Tomi Lahren is out with another false attack, blasting Hillary Clinton‘s recent remarks about President Trump’s racism and sexism.

When Hillary Clinton is “attacking President Donald Trump, she’s actually attacking Americans and she’s attacking his supporters, and she couldn’t be more tone deaf,” Lahren charged.

“What she’s doing when she says that he is racist, she’s trying to distract from the fact that Black unemployment is at historic lows,” Lahren said on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning.

“When she says that he’s sexist she’s trying to distract from the fact that we have GDP growth over 4 percent.”

“When she says that he’s Islamophobic she’s trying to distract from the fact that as Commander-in-Chief he has overseen the decimation of ISIS,” Lahren claimed.

On Tuesday Clinton was asked if she thinks Trump is racist.

“I think he has thrown his lot in with people and groups whose stated objective is white nationalism, white supremacy,” Clinton told The Atlantic’s editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg during a forum.

“He has been racist, he’s been sexist, he’s been Islamophobic, he has been anti-LGBTQ, I mean, there’s a long list,” Clinton responded.

“He has a view of America that is incredibly constricted and he talks to that America,” she added.

Aside from her false attacks on Clinton, Lahren’s claims are misleading.

Black unemployment under President Barack Obama fell more than 9 points. Under President Trump, just 1.5 points.

Yes, GDP growth is at 4.1%. But under President Obama, GDP growth broke 4 percent three times: 4.6%, 4.9%, and 5.1%.

And ISIS has been hit hard, but is reportedly “poised to make a comeback.”

Bernie Sanders Reverses – Announces He Will Not Release His Full Medical Records Even After Heart Attack

Published

‘I Don’t Think We Will’

U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, independent of Vermont, has announced he will not be releasing his full medical records after suffering a heart attack late last year. Sanders, 78, is currently seen as the frontrunner in the race for the Democratic nomination for president.

“We have released, I think, quite as much as any other candidate has,” Sen. Sanders said, defending his decision to reverse his promise of releasing a full set of medical records just after his October heart attack.

But in October, after the heart attack, Sanders said releasing his medical records was “the right thing to do.” He also had promised to release them “before the first votes are cast,” a deadline he’s missed.

“People do have a right to know about the health of a senator and someone running for president,” Sanders told CNN’s Sanjay Gupta on October 10. “At the appropriate time we’ll make all the medical records public for you or anyone else who wants to see them.”

Here’s Sanders just after his heart attack promising to release his full medical records:

Tuesday night he gave a very different response.

New: Bernie Sanders Press Secretary Compares Asking for His Medical Records to a ‘Smear’ Like Birtherism

“We released two rather detailed letters from cardiologists and we released a letter that came from the head of the U.S. Congress medical group, the physicians there. So I think we have released a detailed report, and I’m comfortable with what we have done,” Sanders told Anderson Cooper Tuesday night at a CNN town hall.

“If you think I’m not in good health come on out with me on the campaign trail and I’ll let you introduce me to the three or four rallies a day that we do,” Sanders joked.

Cooper pressed the three-term Senator if he would be releasing his full medical records in the future.

“I don’t think we will, no,” Sanders responded.

President Donald Trump was largely decried and mocked for his refusal to release his full medical records when he was running in 2016. He has never released a full set, and his White House physician’s reports have been largely received as fictive.

MSNBC analyst and DailyBeast columnist Jonathan Alter called Sanders’ move “Trumpish.”

Watch: Fox & Friends Defends Trump Wrongly Claiming Super Bowl Champs ‘Represented the Great State of Kansas’

Published

on

Fox & Friends” Monday morning defended President Donald Trump’s false claim that the Kansas City Chiefs were from the state of Kansas. The NFL team who won Sunday night’s Super Bowl are from the state of Missouri. Trump quickly deleted a tweet Sunday night praising the team for “a great game, and a fantastic comeback.”

“You represented the Great State of Kansas,” Trump said, “so very well.”

The Fox News morning crew agreed, despite the confines of geography and cartography.

“Kansas City is in Kansas and it is also in Missouri,” co-host Steve Doocy told Fox News viewers – glossing over that Trump specifically – and falsely – said the Kansas city Chiefs “represented the Great State of Kansas.”

“It’s like the difference between the New York Giants, I mean the Giants are – people call them the NY Giants but they’re in New Jersey,” Doocy concluded, except it’s nothing like that at all.

“Right, right,” co-host Ainsley Earhardt chimed in.

Watch: Lindsey Graham Falsely Claims FBI Stopped Russia’s Attacks on Clinton Campaign During Election

Published

on

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham opened up Wednesday morning’s hearing with Inspector General Michael Horowitz by falsely claiming the FBI was able to stop Russia’s attacks against the Hillary Clinton campaign, and suggested it did so early on, well before the November 2016 election.

That’s blatantly false.

Chairman Graham also appeared to imply that the FBI did so merely by contacting the Clinton campaign to warn them of Russia’s actions – and he made that claim to support his false theory that the Bureau should have told the Trump campaign it and its officials were subjects or even targets of a counterintelligence investigation to determine if they were conspiring with Russia to win the election.

“I want the American people to know there was an effort to affect Hillary Clinton’s campaign by foreign actors,” Graham says, not even mentioning Russia. “The FBI picked up that effort, they briefed her about it, and they were able to stop it.”

The FBI has not been able to stop Russian interference and attacks on the U.S. elections, which began according to the consensus of all 17 U.S. Intelligence agencies in 2013, and has to this day have not ended.
