This Old Video of Reagan and Bush Talking About Immigration Is Making People Wonder WTF Happened to the Republican Party
During a debate in the 1980 presidential primaries, candidates George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan were asked a question about Mexican immigrants - and their answer might surprise you.
We've grown accustomed to the Trump campaign's rallying cry of "Build that wall!" However, the GOP of the 80s had a very different answer to the issue of undocumented immigrants in the United States. An audience member in Texas asked whether the candidates felt that the children of illegal aliens should be allowed to attend public schools for free or if their parents should have to pay for them.
If you're wondering why President Donald Trump is planning to pardon three alleged war criminals, you likely have Fox & Friends host Pete Hegseth to thank.
Two days ago, the New York Times reported that "the Trump administration had made expedited requests this week for paperwork needed to pardon the troops on or around Memorial Day." Those troops include Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher of the Navy SEALs, who has been accused of shooting unarmed civilians - including a young girl - and murdering a suspected Al Qaeda prisoner.
Trump Administration Just Gave the Worst Reason for Refusing to Join New Zealand's Efforts to Stop Terrorists from Spreading Content Online
The Trump administration's tacit acceptance of violent rhetoric has reached a new low: they're declining to join New Zealand and France in a commitment to fight online terrorism.
The Christchurch Call for Action, named after the March 15 mass shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand, encourages tech companies to work together to step up their efforts to keep terrorism off social media. The Christchurch massacre was livestreamed on Facebook, and viewed and reposted by millions before Facebook was able to block it.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Just Totally Destroyed the Arguments That Georgia's New Abortion Law Isn't a Ban
On May 7, Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp signed the "fetal heartbeat" bill. The new law prevents women from getting abortions after the sixth week of pregnancy, or after a heartbeat can be detected - which can happen before a woman even knows she's pregnant.
The law is one of the most restrictive in the country, and effectively criminalizes abortions for pregnancies that have not been caught in the first few weeks. To provide some context: a woman is usually 4-6 weeks pregnant by the time she realizes she's missed her period.
Betsy DeVos Was Just Asked in an Interview if She'd Serve Another Term as Education Secretary and People are Cheering at Her Answer
Even if the unthinkable happens and Trump is elected for a second presidential term, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos won't commit to retaining her position for another four years.
During a Q&A session at the Education Writers Association national seminar in Baltimore, DeVos was asked whether she would serve another term as Education Secretary, and she wouldn't commit.
Babbel Just Tore Tucker Carlson to Shreds In a Surprisingly Blunt Apology to Users After Their Ad Appeared on Carlson's Show
An ad for online language-learning service Babbel ran during Tucker Carlson's show - and their reaction was immediate. "If you saw our ad on Tucker Carlson’s show, you’re right to be upset," the company tweeted from their official account. "We are too."
Tucker Carlson is the conservative host of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight, a show that prides itself on calling out "political correctness" and voicing unpopular - and often unsavory - opinions.
