NBC, Fox Pull Same Racist Ad That CNN Refused To Air In The First...

0
NBC aired a version of the blatantly racist ad proselytized by Donald Trump Jr., on Sunday Night Football, where it drew a number of catcalls. On Monday morning the network made the decision to withdraw it. New York Times: “After further review we recognize the insensitive nature of the ad and have decided to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible,” NBC Universal said in a statement. The 30-second version run by NBC did not include the false claim about Democrats, but it still drew a direct connection from immigrants to crime, a tactic the president has repeatedly used. (Many studies have shown immigrants do not drive an increase in crime.) NBC’s decision to run the Trump campaign ad stood in stark contrast to CNN, which publicly responded when Donald Trump Jr. criticized the network for refusing to run it. “CNN has made it abundantly clear in its editorial coverage that this ad is racist,” the network’s public relations account posted on Twitter. “When presented with an opportunity to be paid to take a version of this ad, we declined.” The ad was paid for by Donald Trump for President, as part of his ongoing racist dirge, demonizing immigrants and gaslighting his followers into believing that the country is under threat of imminent invasion. Now here’s a hoot. The ad was also pulled by Fox News. Could it have been too racist for them? Nah. You know what they say about putting toothpaste back in the tube.

Jeff Sessions Just Resigned As Attorney General

0
Well, this didn’t take long. Midterm results are still coming in and we’re now well nigh into our first constitutional crisis, as Jeff Sessions resigns pursuant to Trump’s request. Mother  Jones: Sessions’ decision had been widely expected, as Trump has long taken issue with Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation after it was revealed that he had not been forthcoming about his own communications with Russian officials. Trump frequently aired his frustrations with Sessions on Twitter and in public appearances. In a stunning admission last July, Trump told the New York Times that he never would have appointed Sessions as attorney general if he had known he would eventually recuse himself from the ongoing Russia investigation. Special counsel Robert Mueller is known to be looking into Sessions’ own meetings with Russians while he was a Trump campaign surrogate, and the role he played overseeing the campaign’s foreign policy and contacts. Hang on tight. The midterms mark a line of demarcation in the Trump presidency and it’s going to get wild. Trump gave a batshit crazy presser this morning, combatative and tense, and this is some of the fallout. And Don Jr. hasn’t even been indicted yet.
