Colin Kaepernick Sits for National Anthem

Forty Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick has willingly and knowingly immersed himself into controversy by refusing to stand for the playing of the national anthem in protest of what he deems are wrongdoings against African Americans and minorities in the United States. His latest refusal to stand for the anthem — he has done this in at least one other preseason game — came before the 49ers preseason loss to Green Bay at Levi’s Stadium. “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country…

Sarah Palin Rips Trump Over Immigration Softening

Ann Coulter‘s not the only one displeased with Donald Trump‘s recent move towards an immigration pivot. Sarah Palin talked with Eric Bolling Thursday night on The O’Reilly Factor, where she slammed him over what she has called a “wishy-washy” softening that won’t do anything to help him. “Donald Trump understands that enforcing the laws and building that wall are paramount to what the will of the people is,” Palin said. “Candidate Trump didn’t garner a lot of enthusiastic support by being soft on anything.

Chris Matthews Disagrees With Clinton’s Recent Anti-Trumps Ads

During his final segment of Hardball Thursday night, hyperpartisan MSNBC host Chris Matthews took a departure from script of sorts to distance his opinion from recent actions of Democratic party nominee Hillary Clinton. Alongside a frank and at times aggressive speech today aimed at taking on her GOP rival, Clinton and her camp released an anti-Donald Trump ad that featured the Ku Klux Klan and white supremacists. As Mediaite‘s Ken Meyer opined, “Hillary goes for the jugular,” with the ad, which was attached to a Tweet that read, “There’s a…

Pierson: Donald Trump Didn’t Flip-Flop, He Just Changed the Words 

Donald Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson had a unique response to the charge that her boss flip-flopped on immigration Thursday, saying that his position hasn’t changed, but his words have. “He hasn’t changed his position on immigration, he has changed the words that he is saying,” she insisted. That elicited laughter from the other panelists. “That would be a change,” responded contributor Amanda Carpenter. But Pierson braved on: “What he has said from the beginning is that he does not want to allow people to stay in this country illegally, he…

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough tore into Hillary Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon‘s unconvincing defense of the Clinton Foundation Thursday, calling it “pathetic.” The Morning Joe host cued up video of Fallon giving an interview to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell in which he implied that those attacking the Clinton Foundation were hurting the international effort to eradicate AIDS. “If any American voter is troubled by the idea that the Clintons want to keep working to solve the AIDS crisis on the side while Hillary Clinton is president, then don’t vote for her,” he…

CNN Panel Scoffs When Kayleigh McEnany Argues Trump Flip-Flop

Trump supporter Kayleigh McEnany invited the jeers of her CNN co-panelists when she argued with a straight face that Donald Trump‘s recent flip-flop on immigration was not a flip-flop on immigration. During the primary, Trump repeatedly promised to deport every single person in the country illegally regardless of circumstance. In recent days he indicated a shift — a “softening” — and even admitted that he was open to “working with” people who had been in the country for a long time without a criminal record.
