Rep. Liz Cheney blasts GOP colleague Steve King over ‘appalling’ rape and incest remarks: ‘It’s time for him to go’

Liz Cheney blasts GOP colleague Steve King over 'appalling' rape and incest remarks: 'It's time for him to go' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/politics/judiciary/abortion fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/republicans fox-news/politics fox news fnc/media fnc b7ae9c63-e286-5c56-93ca-47a23a572bfa article

Rep. Liz Cheney blasted her Republican colleague Steve King on Wednesday over his asking if there would be “any population” without rape and incest.

“Today’s comments by @RepSteveKingIA are appalling and bizarre,” the GOP lawmaker from Wyoming tweeted. “As I’ve said before, it’s time for him to go. The people of Iowa’s 4th congressional district deserve better.

REP. STEVE KING SLAMMED BY FELLOW GOP COLLEAGUES FOR ‘WHITE SUPREMACIST’ REMARK 

Cheney’s comments came after King, aiming to defend the pro-life stance of not allowing any exceptions for abortions, wondered whether everyone’s “family trees” included ancestors who were the product of rape or incest. His comments came as he spoke at the Westside Conservative Club.

“What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled out anyone who was a product of rape or incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?” King said in Urbandale, Iowa, according to The Des Moines Register. “Considering all the wars and all the rapes and pillages that happened throughout all these different nations, I know that I can’t say that I was not a part of a product of that.”

King inspired a heavy social media backlash. Among the strong responses, 2020 presidential candidate and Democratic New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, called for his resignation.

Cheney, who serves as the House Republican Caucus Chair, was one of many Republicans who blasted King earlier this year for telling The New York Times, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?”

King was later stripped of committee assignments and the House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a resolution condemning his remarks.

LG smart refrigerator used for tweeting by teen whose mom banned electronics

Westlake Legal Group AP19190012629886 LG smart refrigerator used for tweeting by teen whose mom banned electronics Nicole Darrah fox-news/tech/technologies fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/tech fox-news/odd-news fox news fnc/tech fnc article 2fd1411f-7523-5990-b412-650914b8bf71

A teenager who claims her mother took her electronics away seemingly resorted to what might be the last imaginable place to tweet from: a refrigerator.

The plight of 15-year-old Twitter user “Dorothy” was noticed earlier this month after she kept tweeting about how her mom kept taking gadgets away from her, leaving her unable to tweet.

NEW YORK TIMES DEMOTES HIGH-RANKING EDITOR FOLLOWING SOCIAL MEDIA CONTROVERSIES

The account, which appears to function as an Ariana Grande fan page, posted a tweet on Aug. 4 that read: “im leaving forever. my mom took my phone. ill miss u all sm. im crying. goodbye.”

Twitter, which shows where users’ tweets are sent from, showed that the teen’s tweet was sent from a Nintendo 3DS.

But later that day, Dorothy’s mom seemingly noticed her daughter was tweeting from the gaming device, and announced on Twitter her account “will be shut down now.”

Despite her mother’s guidance, the teen did not give up. On Aug. 5, she tweeted from her Wii U — thanking everyone for their support in her quest to tweet, no matter the consequences. In a follow-up tweet from her Wii U, she wrote her mom was at work and she planned to try looking for her phone.

But on Aug. 8, Dorothy’s predicament took another turn. Still without her electronics, the teen resorted to tweeting from her smart fridge.

“I do not know if this is going to tweet I am talking to my fridge what the heck my Mom confiscated all of my electronics again,” she said.

LG Electronics, the company behind the smart fridge, caught wind of Dorothy’s troubles, and tweeted “#FreeDorothy.” The main Twitter account tweeted it, too, describing the teen as “an icon.”

The teen told the Guardian, in a message sent through her cousin’s iPad, that her mom took her electronics away “so I’d pay more attention to my surroundings.”

“I felt mortified! I was worried because I’ve been bored all summer and Twitter passes the time for me.”

It wasn’t clear when “Dorothy” would be allowed back on social media. In response to the Guardian asking how long she’d be grounded for, Dorothy said: “I may be late to reply, as it is difficult to find something to use Twitter.”

Twitter locks out McConnell’s campaign for posting video of calls for violence at his home

Twitter locked accounts belonging to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s re-election campaign and several prominent conservatives Monday, after they posted videos of left-wing protesters gathered outside McConnell’s Kentucky home — with one demonstrator calling for someone to stab McConnell “in the heart” and for McConnell to break his “raggedy” neck.

The episode prompted the McConnell campaign, known as “Team Mitch,” to slam Twitter for political bias, saying the social media platform had effectively blamed the victim. Meanwhile, observers noted, Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro remains active on Twitter, even after he posted the names of San Antonio residents who donated to Trump.

“This morning, Twitter locked our account for posting the video of real-world, violent threats made against Mitch McConnell,” McConnell campaign manager Kevin Golden said in a statement. “This is the problem with the speech police in America today.”

Golden continued: “The Lexington-Herald can attack Mitch with cartoon tombstones of his opponents. But we can’t mock it. Twitter will allow the words ‘Massacre Mitch’ to trend nationally on their platform. But locks our account for posting actual threats against us. We appealed and Twitter stood by their decision, saying our account will remain locked until we delete the video.”

SAN ANTONE SELF-OWN: CASTRO OUTED ONE OF HIS OWN DONORS IN BID TO SHAME TRUMP SUPPORTERS

McConnell, 77, has been resting at home since tripping on his patio fracturing his shoulder on Sunday — and the Team Mitch account posted images showing him at his residence. In the wake of this weekend’s deadly mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, the hashtag “Massacre Mitch” trended on Twitter — and some activists took their case to McConnell’s residence.

In a livestream video of the protest, Black Lives Matter Louisville leader Chanelle Helm, standing with other demonstrators outside McConnell’s home, said that he “should have broken his little raggedy, wrinkled-(expletive) neck” rather than fracturing his shoulder.

“Just stab the m—– f—– in the heart,” Helm said, after a fellow demonstrator referenced a McConnell voodoo doll.

Helm told the Lousville Courier-Journal in an interview on Wednesday that she had no regrets.

ACTRESS UNDER FIRE FOR ‘SICK’ TWEET DIRECTED AT MCCONNELL

“McConnell doesn’t care about people who actually do break their necks, who need insulin, who need any type of medication, because they want to stop and prevent health care for all,” Helm said. “And that is something that every American out here wants. There’s only a few Americans who don’t want that, and those people are politicians and their cronies.”

As of late Wednesday, the Team Mitch had not deleted the offending tweet containing the video. Twitter’s policy for accounts violating its rules on certain offending content is to require the account owners to delete offending tweets in order for their access to be restored unless the conduct is so severe it warrants an indefinite suspension.

CNN’s Brian Stelter criticized McConnell for offering prayers after recent mass shootings.

Its most recent tweet, made late Tuesday, Team Mitch called the threats outside McConnell’s home “serious calls to physical violence” and said law enforcement had been notified.

Twitter declined to provide an on-the-record comment. Because the video included an explicit call for violence, and took place steps away from McConnell’s residence, it apparently violated Twitter’s rules for anyone to post the video — including McConnell and his supporters.

But another Twitter user who posted the video, The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra, said Twitter simply does not want the “Left’s pure hatred exposed because it damages the narrative that many at Twitter have.”

“By suspending me for telling the truth, Twitter is making it clear that they seek to control the news media and only allow content on their platform that does not expose the evil, projection, and hypocrisy of the political Left,” Saavedra wrote. “Do not be surprised if they permanently ban me.”

Saavedra added: “By suspending McConnell’s re-election campaign for exposing the violent rhetoric directed at McConnell, which was allowed to foment on Twitter for days, Twitter is interfering in the 2020 elections in a manner to help Democrats and hurt Republicans.”

GOP SEN TAKES AIM AT BIG TECH’S LEGAL PROTECTIONS WITH NEW BILL

Capitol Hill communications director Ben Goldey said that he, too, had been locked out of Twitter.

“My account was temporarily suspended after posting a video of far-left activists chanting death threats at Senator McConnell,” Goldey wrote on Twitter. “Meanwhile, @Castro4Congress tweet, targeting his own constituents by name and employer is still up and does not violate Twitter’s Rules.”

Former McConnell aide and political commentator Scott Jennings also called the situation inexplicable.

“Mitch McConnell has people on his yard threatening to “stab the motherf******” in the heart” & @twitter suspends MCCONNELL from its platform,” Jennings wrote on Twitter. “This nation needs to heal & this platform is actively removing voices from the conversation who can help find solutions. Absolute garbage.”

On Tuesday, McConnell’s campaign accused New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of encouraging threats against the senator and “trying to dox some underage kids” after she blasted a group of McConnell-supporting boys who took a controversial photo with a cardboard cutout of her during a recent Kentucky political event.

DOJ OPENS SWEEPING ANTITRUST REVIEW OF TECH GIANTS, INCLUDING TWITTER

“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and liberal Twitter personalities are trying to dox some underage kids for taking a photo with a cutout at the Fancy Farm political picnic and are cheering on thousands of accounts calling for Senator McConnell to ‘break his neck,’” Team Mitch tweeted.

In a tweet Monday, Ocasio-Cortez did not explicitly call for harassment or threats but she prompted a wave of negative reactions to the boys when she suggested that their gestures — “groping” and “choking” the cut-out, as she alleged — represented the “culture” of McConnell’s campaign.

After Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet, McConnell’s campaign responded by distancing itself from the photo, clarifying that the boys weren’t employees of the campaign. “Team Mitch in no way condones any aggressive, suggestive, or demeaning act toward life-sized cardboard cutouts of any gender,” campaign spokesman Kevin Golden said, according to the New York Post.

Golden added: “These young men are not campaign staff, they’re high schoolers and it’s incredible that the national media has sought to once again paint a target on their backs rather than report real, and significant news in our country.”

McConnell’s campaign appeared to downplay the photo by comparing it to one that a former aide to President Obama took after his election in 2008. The photo, posted at the end of 2008, showed Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau appearing to grope a cardboard cut-out of Hillary Clinton, then Obama’s choice for secretary of state.

The situation quickly spiraled. The Daily Beast posted a tweet claiming that McConnel’s campaign had “essentially” told Ocasio-Cortez that “boys will be boys” — prompting Ocasio-Cortez, and later Newsweek, to falsely imply that McConnell’s campaign had, in fact, used that phrase.

“How a lie gets laundered,” wrote Washington Examiner reporter Jerry Dunleavy.

Trump trashes Beto O’Rourke, tells him to ‘be quiet’ ahead of El Paso visit

Westlake Legal Group Trump-Beto Trump trashes Beto O'Rourke, tells him to 'be quiet' ahead of El Paso visit Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/beto-orourke fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 40231117-ff20-5e88-85dd-c83ccfd43656

President Trump issued a fiery tweet late Tuesday for 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke ahead of his visit to the Democrat’s hometown of El Paso, Texas, following last weekend’s shooting that left 22 dead. 

Over the past several days, O’Rourke has slammed the president, who he has placed blame for the massacre. The former congressman declared that Trump is a “racist” and compared his language to Nazi Germany’s Third Reich. He also compared Trump’s North Carolina rally– where the “send her back” chant took place– to “Nuremberg.”

BETO O’ROURKE COMPARES TRUMP RALLY TO NAZI GERMANY IN WAKE OF EL PASO SHOOTING

“That is a leader reveling in the hatred and the racism of the people that he purports to serve and to lead,” O’Rourke said Monday.

Trump responded to O’Rourke and claimed the candidate is using a “phony name” in an attempt to appeal to voters.

“Beto (phony name to indicate Hispanic heritage) O’Rourke, who is embarrassed by my last visit to the Great State of Texas, where I trounced him, and is now even more embarrassed by polling at 1 percent in the Democrat Primary, should respect the victims & law enforcement – & be quiet!” Trump wrote in a late-night tweet.

The president referred to the rally he held in El Paso back in February amid the national debate about the migration crisis and had previously boasted his crowd size in comparison to O’Rourke, who held a competing rally on the same night.

Joaquin Castro doubles down on outing Trump donors: ‘No one was targeted or harassed’

Westlake Legal Group Joaquin-Castro-GettyImages-1132142232 Joaquin Castro doubles down on outing Trump donors: 'No one was targeted or harassed' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-scarborough fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 6e2d3df6-65fb-5081-a9a7-8da0249e295c

Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, is not backing down from his tweet outing Trump donors in San Antonio, insisting they weren’t “targeted or harassed” and that it wasn’t a “call to action.”

Castro, brother of former HUD secretary Julián Castro and the campaign chairman of his 2020 presidential campaign, shared a list of 44 individuals who gave the maximum donation to President Trump‘s campaign on Monday night, insisting that their contributions are “fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.'”

The list included their names and employers, several of whom are listed as “retired.”

The tweet was condemned by the Trump campaign, GOP lawmakers, and several members of the media, with many urging him to delete the post.

TRUMP CAMPAIGN BLASTS DEM REP FOR TRYING TO NAME AND  SHAME DONORS: ‘DELETE & APOLOGIZE’

Castro later doubled down, saying he did not share “private or personal info” since the post did not include addresses and phone numbers, and insisting it wasn’t a “call to action.”

However, Castro also offered a fiery response to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., who accused his Democratic colleague of “targeting and harassing Americans because of their political beliefs.”

“No one was targeted or harassed in my post. You know that. All that info is routinely published,” Castro tweeted. “You’re trying to distract from the racism that has overtaken the GOP and the fact that President Trump spends donor money on thousands of ads about Hispanics ‘invading’ America.”

He added: “Donald Trump has put a target on the back of millions. And you’re too cowardly or agreeable to say anything about it. How about I stop mentioning Trump’s public campaign donors and he stops using their money for ads that fuel hate?”

Despite the growing criticism, Castro found one prominent defender: MSNBC host Joe Scarborough.

“Any business that donates to Trump is complicit and endorses the white supremacy he espoused in Charlottesville, with his ‘send her back’ chants, and by laughing at shouts that Hispanic immigrants should be shot,” Scarborough tweeted. “Donors’ names are on FEC reports. They are newsworthy.”

The “Morning Joe” co-host and outspoken Trump critic expressed a similar sentiment on Monday morning.

“For those of you funding Donald Trump’s re-election campaign, you may want to take note: Because you keep writing checks to this president, it’s on you…because you are funding this white supremacist campaign,” Scarborough told his viewers. “It is your money that is funding this white supremacy because you won’t tell him to stop.”

Playboy reporter, CNN analyst Brian Karem says White House suspended his credential over clash with Gorka

Westlake Legal Group 73cec7ba-Karem-Trump Playboy reporter, CNN analyst Brian Karem says White House suspended his credential over clash with Gorka Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc fee90de0-5e6d-588f-a2ee-66d34ecb03f5 article

Playboy senior White House reporter and CNN political analyst Brian Karem said Friday that the Trump administration temporarily suspended his credentials over a fiery spat with radio show host Sebastian Gorka last month.

Karem tweeted that he’d received an email from the White House telling him that as of Monday, his press pass would be “suspended for 30 days.”

“Yes, I can and will appeal this decision,” Karem added.

CNN reported that the White House cited Karem’s behavior at the July 11 White House social media summit. While waiting for a presidential press conference following the summit, Karem and Gorka got into a shouting match after Karem described the summit attendees as “group of people that are eager for demonic possession.”

MSNBC’S CHRIS MATTHEWS RECALLS ‘THRILL’ HE FELT FOR OBAMA WHILE DEFENDING LEGACY FROM 2020 DEMS

“You’re a journalist, right?” Gorka shouted from a distance.

“C’mon over here and talk to me, brother,” Karem responded. “We can go outside and have a long conversation.”

Gorka, a former White House aide, then asked Karem if he was “threatening” him in the Rose Garden.

“You’re a punk, you’re not a journalist, you’re a punk,” Gorka yelled at Karem, who responded by urging Gorka to “get a job.”

The “America First” host celebrated the suspension on Twitter by taunting Karem.

“Thank you @realDonaldTrump, thank you @PressSec,” Gorka told the president and White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham. “On behalf of Americans who’ve had enough of FakeNews punks like @BrianKarem.”

The White House did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Last November, CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta had his press pass suspended “until further notice” hours after he engaged in a contentious back-and-forth with the president at a press conference following the midterm elections.

“Honestly, I think you should let me run the country and you run CNN,” Trump told Acosta at one point.

Nine days later, a federal judge granted CNN’s request for a temporary restraining order and ordered that Acosta’s press pass be restored.

Jessica Alba’s Twitter hacked, posts homophobic, racist and Nazi-sympathizing messages

A hacker posted hateful, bigoted tweets from actress Jessica Alba’s account this weekend.

Messages posted to the Honest Co. founder’s account included one that read, “Nazi Germany Did Nothing Wrong And That’s On God N–a.”

Another read, “ugh police sirens in the distance again. When will n–s stop committing crimes so I can get some f–king sleep.”

JESSICA ALBA’S BIGGEST REGRET

Others included offers to pay $50,000 to kill handicapped homosexuals.

Thankfully, the messages were removed from the 38-year-old beauty’s account by early Sunday once the hack was discovered.

Falling prey to Twitter trolling is somewhat new to Alba, who previously lamented about being a target for a different kind of harassment: Sexual advances from older men.

JESSICA ALBA GETS HONEST ABOUT HER ACTING ABILITY

She said at Goop’s health summit in May, “I was meant to feel ashamed if I tempted men. Then I stopped eating a lot when I became an actress. I made myself look more like a boy so I wouldn’t get as much attention.”

She added that she felt “preyed upon” by men when she was starting out.

Broadway legend accused of homophobia for comment directed at Lindsey Graham

Westlake Legal Group Graham-LuPone_getty Broadway legend accused of homophobia for comment directed at Lindsey Graham Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/politics fox-news/person/lindsey-graham fox-news/media fox-news/entertainment/media fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 20d12771-fa34-5a69-8da9-6bc0a233a4ce

Broadway legend Patti LuPone is under fire for a shocking personal attack on Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC.

Graham has defended the president in recent days amid the ongoing controversy around his inflammatory comments toward four freshman Democratic congresswomen, as well as a controversial chant at one of his rallies on Wednesday night.

LuPone started her attacking by criticizing Graham for supporting the president before things took an ugly turn and she went after the Republican “on a personal note.”

TRUMP DISTANCES HIMSELF FROM ‘SEND HER BACK’ CHANT: ‘I DISAGREE WITH IT’

“Lindsey Graham you are a disgrace,” LuPone tweeted. “On a personal note, why don’t you just bite the bullet and come out. You might just come to your senses.”

That sparked plenty of criticism on social media of the Tony-winning actress.

“Ahhh a good old fashioned homophobic joke from an icon in the gay community,” journalist Yashar Ali reacted.

This isn’t the first time an entertainer attacked Graham in such a fashion. Liberal comedian Chelsea Handler wrote a sexually-explicit tweet suggesting that Graham was being blackmailed by the Trump administration over his sexuality.

LuPone also blasted Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., for blocking a vote on the 9/11 victim compensation reauthorization bill.

“Don’t set foot in NYC. You too are a National disgrace. Maybe your neighbor had a point?” LuPone wrote, eluding to the 2017 assault Paul suffered by his neighbor.

A spokesperson for Paul earlier released a statement that read: “Senator Paul is not blocking anything,” it read. “He is simply seeking to pay for it. As with any bill, Senator Paul always believes it needs to be paid for. Senator Paul is simply offering an amendment, which other senators support, to pay for this legislation.”

Actress and political activist Alyssa Milano raised some eyebrows on Tuesday evening after she announced she’d be attending her first fundraiser of the 2020 election cycle.

Milano, who in recent months has been vocal in her opposition against the legislation that was signed into law in several states that restricting abortions, took to Twitter and unveiled her upcoming plans.

“I’m going to my first fundraiser of the election cycle and it’s for- [spiritual guru] @marwilliamson,” Milano told her 3.6 million Twitter followers. “I know. I know. But she’s the only candidate talking about the collective, soulful ache of the nation & I think that’s an important discussion to have.”

Milano stressed that she was “not committing to anyone yet,” adding that she’s “going to support everyone if given the opportunity until the choice is crystal clear.”

The “Charmed” actress was slammed being open to support Marianne Williamson, who critics labeled an “anti-vaxxer” due to her opposition for government-mandated vaccinations. She dismissed the naysayers and responded positively to other Twitter users, agreeing with one that Williamson “does” have “some points.”

Milano has been an influential figure among progressives. She reportedly advised former Vice President Joe Biden last month during the controversy surrounding his shifting support for the Hyde Amendment. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, was reportedly “pushing hard” to seek Milano’s endorsement in a phone conversation they had. She previously supported his candidacy during the 2016 election.

Williamson may have more allies in Hollywood. Academy Award-winner Jeff Bridges made a campaign contribution to her campaign earlier this year.

AOC, Trump join list of celebs and social media stars as ‘most influential people on the internet’

While Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and President Trump differ vastly in their political views, a new ranking highlights some common ground between the two.

According to TIME magazine, both are incredibly effective at influencing people on the internet. The two joined a slew of celebrities — including singer Ariana Grande and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex  — on the publication’s list of the “25 Most Influential People on the Internet.”

Other top influencers included conservative author Ben Shapiro, rapper Cardi B, and the Hong Kong protesters.

The list came just as President Trump and Ocasio-Cortez traded barbs on Twitter in what was perhaps their most heated and direct exchange to date. Trump’s online comments about Ocasio-Cortez and other freshman congresswoman ignited a media firestorm involving the most powerful members of Congress.

The incident provoked a speech from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Tuesday when she called on her Republican colleagues to denounce the president’s “racist” tweet about Ocasio-Cortez and others.

Earlier in July, Pelosi downplayed Ocasio-Cortez’s influence by comparing her substantial Twitter following to the few votes she was able to get in opposing a bipartisan border funding package.

On Tuesday, both Trump and Ocasio-Cortez continued battling via Twitter as the latter accused him of being a racist and the former charged progressive lawmakers with hating the United States.

Ocasio-Cortez also sparked a prolonged debate about Holocaust references when she used Instagram to accuse immigration enforcement of housing migrants in “concentration camps.”

Trump has long used Twitter as his proverbial bully pulpit, directly attacking Democrats and even using the platform to break news about changes in his administration. As the president struggled to obtain funding for border wall funding, he continually blasted Democrats on Twitter for what he saw as inaction on immigration reform.

Trump’s border wall got a boost from Air Force veteran Brian Kolfage, also on the list, who used the internet to crowdfund money for a southern border wall.

Vox writer Carlos Maza, another controversial figure in the Twittersphere, also made the list.
