01) Kamala Harris SHUTS DOWN Meghan McCain


“Meghan McCain is a right-wing grifter.

Meghan McCain asked Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) what she may have thought was going to be a “gotcha” question Monday morning on The View. Harris wasn’t having it.

“Many activists right now are calling for a defunding of the police,” McCain said when it was her turn to question the senator, citing the Minneapolis City Council vote that would go even further in dismantling that city’s police department. “I want to know from you, do you support defunding and removing the police from American communities, and if not, why do you think there is such a hard time being differentiated right now between defunding and reforming police departments?

01) AOC Triggers Eliot Engel with Challenger Endorsement


“Eliot Engel likens AOC to a dictator.

Stop us if you’ve heard this before: A firmly entrenched New York City Democratic congressman is fighting for his political life against a fast-rising upstart who has generated serious buzz among progressives.

That, of course, was the template for one of the biggest upsets in recent political history — when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took down longtime Democratic Congressman Joe Crowley. Now, Ocasio-Cortez is trying to help defeat another multi-term incumbent in Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY). And the congressman is none too pleased.

01) Republicans Vowing To NEVER Support Trump


“These Republicans are giving Trump the finger.

Former President George W. Bush and Senator Mitt Romney won’t support Mr. Trump’s re-election. Colin Powell will vote for Joe Biden, and other G.O.P. officials may do the same.

01) Trump FURIOUS After Roger Goodell’s Black Lives Matter Video


“Trump attacks NFL Commissioner over BLM video.

President Donald Trump reacted to Roger Goodell’s Black Lives Matter video late on Sunday evening.

Goodell tweeted out a Black Lives Matter video on Friday night, admitting that the league had not listened enough to its black players. The commissioner tweeted out his remarks in response to a video made by several of the league’s star players, who asked for the NFL to do more to fight racial injustices.

“It has been a difficult time for our country. In particular, black people in our country,” Goodell said in the video. “First, my condolences to the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and all the families who have endured police brutality. We, the National Football League, condemn racism and the systematic oppression of black people. We, the National Football League, admit we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest. We, the National Football League, believe Black Lives Matter. I personally protest with you and want to be part of the much needed change in this country.

Candace Owens: I Do Not Support George Floyd…

01) Candace Owens: I Do Not Support George Floyd


“Candace Owens is using the national civil unrest to get another paycheck.

It takes a special kind of person to speak ill of the dead, especially when that person died in the way George Floyd died.

But conservative commentator Candace Owens took that stance in a viral Facebook live video recorded earlier today titled “Confession: I DO NOT support George Floyd and I refuse to see him as a martyr”.

The video has been shared more than 360,000 times in under 10 hours.

Floyd, a 46-year-old black man from Minneapolis, died last week after he was handcuffed and held down by three white police officers.

One of the officers, Derek Chauvin, has been charged with murder and manslaughter after being filmed pressing his knee into Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes.
