Schumer: Democrats' position is $1.6 billion for wall funding

What the FUCK?

Sen. Chuck Schumer tells reporters at his on-cam presser that Democrats’ position is $1.6 billion for wall funding - far less than the $5 billion Trump wants - but he won’t say if Democrats are shutting the door on anything more, saying he’s not going to negotiate in public.

Fox News is hawking a racist "Build the wall" Lego knockoff

Someone posted a photo of this on fb or twitter this morning and I thought it was a parody... apparently, it isn't.



Just in time for the holidays, there’s a new racist Lego-knockoff set on the market from a conservative toy company, and Fox News is gleefully promoting it.

“Take a look at this: A conservative company introducing a new line of toys encouraging kids to build a wall with MAGA building blocks,” co-host Jillian Mele said on "Fox & Friends" Wednesday morning. “The set comes with a President Trump figurine and a ‘Make America Great Again’ hard hat.”

Conservative merchandise website Keep and Bear is selling the sets, which are very similar in concept and design to LEGO toys, for $30. One set shows a Trump-like LEGO figure with a hardhat standing in front of a grey brick wall. On the other side of the wall is a man in a sombrero holding maracas, clearly meant to illustrate that he is separating himself from Latin America.

The company also sells “Hillary in orange” figurines that come with “Trump sends Hillary to prison!” set. Other offerings include pro-Second Amendment merch, bibles, and toy sets for the Crusaders.

“Remember our Christian ancestors of the 11th, 12th, and 13th centuries, who embarked on a series of military expeditions to recover the Holy Land from the radical Islam?” reads a description on the website, throwing its support behind a series of historical religious wars that killed an estimated 1.7 million people. “Their mission and bravery saved Western Civilization!”

6 Weeks After Senate Testimony, Christine Blasey Ford Still Getting Threats

Unlike Brett Kavanaugh, Ford’s life has been on hold. She has yet to return to her job as a psychology professor.

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Thursday formally took his seat on the nation’s highest judicial body, in what is known as an investiture ceremony that was attended by President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump.

But six weeks after testifying to a Senate committee about her sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh, Christine Blasey Ford continues to receive threats and is still working on “recovering from the experience and returning to her job responsibilities,” Ford’s lawyers told NPR.

“Justice Kavanaugh ascended to the Supreme Court, but the threats to Dr. Ford continue,” they said in a statement.

Unlike Kavanaugh, who was confirmed to the court on Oct. 6 despite Ford’s allegations and began working at the high court the next day, Ford has yet to return to her job as a psychology professor at Palo Alto University in Northern California, according to her lawyers.

A spokeswoman for the school did not immediately return a request for comment from HuffPost.
