Houston’s Police Chief RIPS Mitch McConnell After Shooting

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo is tired of the NRA and its corrupt politicians. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comments below.

 

“A Texas police officer who was killed while responding to a domestic violence call may have been struck by a bullet that penetrated his ballistic vest, authorities said Monday. Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo made the disclosure about Sgt. Christopher Brewster’s killing Saturday in a note to officers, just hours after he denounced Republican Senators who he said have not reauthorized the Violence Against Women Act. Acevedo also berated pro-gun advocates who oppose new provisions in the law.”

 

Trump’s EPIC Meltdown During Fox & Friends Interview

Trump has an epic meltdown during a live Fox & Friends interview.

Trump recites conspiracy theory about the “DNC server”

The expansive remarks by the president came during a rambling, roughly hourlong phone call to “Fox & Friends,” in an exercise co-host Brian Kilmeade dubbed a “stress release.”
The previous two weeks have been a period of intense pressure for the White House, as impeachment investigators have heard televised testimony from a dozen witnesses detailing a sweeping campaign by the Trump administration seeking Ukraine-led probes into the president’s political opponents.”

00:00
I do want always corruption I say that
00:04
to anybody like technically a slip of
00:08
the tongue I guess some would say a
00:09
Freudian slip perhaps with that Donald
00:12
Trump Brewer than you purposed so
00:14
exactly exactly so there Donald Trump
00:18
president of these United States called
00:21
up Fox and Friends and they tried to
00:25
interview him I can’t say that they
00:27
interviewed him because that implied
00:28
that he ever stopped talking and they
00:30
got an a questioning they did get
00:32
questions in occasion essentially and it
00:34
was the kind of question where they just
00:35
repeat what he just said in astonishment
00:38
mm-hmm like you don’t what you want a
00:39
great example of that let’s do let’s go
00:41
to our first clip because we got a feel
00:42
that we’re to go to but Donald Trump
00:44
he’s not going to be deterred by like
00:46
Fiona Hills testimony yesterday about
00:49
how the whole CrowdStrike Ukraine 2016
00:52
thing is a Russian promoted conspiracy
00:55
theory to get the suspicion off of them
00:57
for interfering with US elections that
00:59
was just yesterday that was debunked yet
01:01
again a Donald Trump today spreading it
01:04
on Fox and Friends from the DNC
01:06
Democratic National Committee who has
01:08
the sir know the FBI went and they told
01:10
him get out of here you’re not kidding
01:12
we’re not giving it to you
01:13
they gave the server to CrowdStrike or
01:16
whatever it’s called which is a country
01:18
which is a company owned by a very
01:20
wealthy Ukrainian and I still wanted to
01:23
see that server you know the FBI has
01:24
never gotten that server that’s a big
01:27
part of this whole thing why did they
01:29
give it to a Ukrainian company where you
01:31
sure they did that are you sure they
01:33
gave it to Ukraine well the next word
01:38
start a Trump are like that’s what I
01:39
hear that that’s a word that’s the word
01:41
that’s there’s a lot of words on the
01:44
internet you should not trust most of
01:46
them these of them are bad words this is
01:48
so horrible mm-hmm like that
01:50
specifically is so horrible and a
01:54
microcosm of what’s been happening in
01:56
media discourse
01:57
under the trump presidency like those
02:00
are jesters this was a four there’s a
02:01
fifty minute interview with Donald Trump
02:04
a fifty minute show and never anywhere
02:07
else has it been so apparent that Fox
02:09
and Friends are the court jesters
02:11
because jesters job was to come before
02:13
the king
02:13
and put on a show just before the king
02:16
as he doesn’t care if they live or die
02:18
as he toys with them to his heart’s
02:20
content either laughing at them and
02:22
rewarding them with praise or not being
02:25
satisfied with their performance and
02:27
then like literally tarring and
02:29
feathering them I like the metaphor and
02:32
I think that there’s something to that
02:33
but like the Jester is supposed to be
02:36
able to talk every once in a while like
02:37
this is the gesture like are you sure
02:39
you want don’t don’t pick that up no
02:41
don’t throw that when mr. president
02:43
seriously we don’t eat that that’s not
02:45
every other day when he’s not on the
02:46
show is the jesters performance because
02:48
this is that moment where the Justin
02:50
where the court with a the the King
02:52
gives them feedback gives them feedback
02:54
yeah that’s it and it becomes so
02:57
apparent in this moment as they just
02:59
stare and the producers need to do
03:00
something else basically with that I cut
03:03
them like and I don’t understand how
03:04
people watching that at home don’t see
03:06
their beloved Fox and Friends faces yeah
03:09
just melting with a sad you sure about
03:13
that and like occasionally I want Jarrow
03:15
to make a mashup for the main show but
03:17
he’ll be talking talking talking like
03:19
start talking and John stop talking
03:20
yours okay I’ve decided right what
03:25
happened was the tightness in the shots
03:26
what they do he keeps talking they try
03:28
to get a question because he’s rambling
03:30
off and they try to get in and they
03:33
can’t and then they smile at the camera
03:34
because they know this is this is
03:36
pointless we don’t even need to be here
03:38
we should just given him you know sent
03:39
him a webcam and he could broadcast an
03:41
hour to the Fox audience but anyway to
the content of what he said there he
said they the FBI came into the DNC and
tried to get the server and they said get
out of here FBI
which is a thing you can
legally do somehow and they didn’t give
this the server all of that is nonsense
and it’s it’s so many steps of nonsense
that it makes you just feel like a crazy
person CrowdStrike is not a Ukrainian
company it’s a it’s a company based in
California that’s what it is
there wasn’t a server there were 140
servers some of them physical servers
some of them digital servers information
existing in the cloud which is a concept
you’re not going to get the president to
understand there was no one server to
hand over there were many servers which
were imaged and all of the information
was given to the FBI the FBI which by
the way along with 16 other intelligence
services the United States all agree
that Ukraine was not meddling in the
2016 election it was Russia but he is
spreading this conspiracy theory which
can be if you go back far enough the
origins are the Russian intelligence
services themselves he is continuing to
spread and already many times debunked
conspiracy theory in the midst of this
impeachment inquiry and well that’s his
defense and he isn’t even spreading it
right which only serves the purpose of
conspiracy conspiracy theories at large
which is just this cloud of doubt is a a
bunch of sand that is his only goal

07:19
no no I understand that but guys what
I’m afraid of is if you take that
argument to its logical extreme all
you’re gonna do is go back to the
establishment media so you’re gonna put
in so many guardrails that we’re gonna
go back to the era of acceptable thought
