C-SPAN

Judge Jeanine Pirro's racist rhetoric caught up to her in a recent Washington Journal appearance on C-SPAN when a man from Texas—who at first appeared to be a supporter of President Donald Trump—ended up taking her, Trump, and the Republican party to task for their anti-immigrant rhetoric and their utter hostility toward Latinx people in general.

The man—who did not give his name—skewered Pirro for her "anti-people with brown skin" rhetoric. Pirro only grimaced as he told her that stances like hers motivated the racist who murdered 22 people in El Paso last month to stop the "Hispanic invasion of Texas."

After two horrific shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio killed 31 people earlier this month, President Donald Trump visited the impacted cities as well as some of the medical facilities caring for the injured.

Trump wouldn't allow press to enter the hospitals because the visit was "not a photo-op" (it was), so a lot of what happened during the visit was left to Trump's word, however unreliable.

It's been two weeks since two horrific mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas resulted in the deaths of 31 people, but Americans' calls for common sense gun reform haven't relented.

This is most recently evident at an Iowa town hall for Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA). Ernst, who is up for reelection in 2020, has an A-rating from the National Rifle Association and received a nearly $10 thousand donation during her 2014 senate campaign.

President Donald Trump visited University Medical Center where victims were recovering after an anti-immigrant shooting in El Paso, Texas this past weekend which killed 22 people.

While none of the still-hospitalized victims agreed to meet with Trump, whose immigration rhetoric often mirrors the ideology of the shooter, he took pictures with medical workers. Press wasn't allowed inside the hospital, but Trump's team filmed and edited videos of the visit which were later edited and shared to Twitter by the president.
