  • Van Jones: I wish Priebus was DNC chair

    Liberal commentator Van Jones on Wednesday said he'd prefer the chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC) to his own party's chair after a "leadership failure" on the Democratic side. Jones knocked Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz for her response to Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders on Tuesday in light of the contentious Nevada Democratic convention. "Debbie, who should be the umpire, who should be the marriage counselor, is coming in harder for Hillary Clinton than she is for herself. That is malpractice," Jones told CNN's Brooke Baldwin Wednesday.

    I don’t know Reince Priebus, the head of the Republican Party (such as it is). He may be a very nice guy, what with a wife and kids and probably a car or two. Still, after watching him on the Sunday interview shows, I have concluded that the man has no pride, no shame and, almost certainly, no future. After Donald Trump loses the presidential election, the name Priebus will, like Quisling or even Boycott, take on a separate meaning: fool. Priebus went from TV studio to TV studio, four in all, on a trudge of abasement, a ride of shame....

    Republican National Committee head Reince Priebus declared Sunday the anti-Donald Trump Republicans' effort to launch a third-party bid for the White House is a "suicide mission." In an interview with CBS News' "Face the Nation," Priebus days after a closed-door sit-down with the GOP presumptive presidential nominee warns against a third-party attempt at "blowing everything up." "It's a suicide mission because you're not only changing and throwing out eight years of the White House" but also jeopardizing the course of the Supreme Court, he replied. "We could have up to three justices change over in the next eight...

    The head of the Republican National Committee denounced efforts to draft an independent candidate to run against Donald Trump as a "suicide mission" that could "wreck" the United States for generations. RNC Chairman Reince Priebus did not mince words as he urged party figures laying the groundwork for a third-party bid to suspend their work. "They can try to hijack another party and get on the ballot, but, look, it's a suicide mission for our country because what it means is that you're throwing down not just eight years of the White House but potentially 100 years on the Supreme...

As reported last week, Trump said he absolutely wants to change the Republican partys current pro-life platform to promote abortions in cases of rape or incest. Yes I would. Absolutely, for the three exceptions, I would, he said. Trump was then pressed further and asked if he would make an exception to protect the health of the mother.
