New Republic | Jade Walker | June 14, 2016 | Politics
Throughout most of the 2016 presidential primaries, the media focused on the noisy and reactionary rift among Republicans. Until the battle between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders turned acrimonious in the home stretch, far less attention was paid to the equally momentous divisions within the Democratic Party.

Stephen Colbert Goads Bill O'Reilly Into Big Admission About Trump

The Huffington Post | Ron Dicker | June 14, 2016 | Politics
"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert and guest Bill O'Reilly covered a lot of ground Monday night in the wake of the Orlando massacre -- from guns to the war on terror. But it was an exchange on Donald Trump that provided O'Reilly's most surprising comment. The Fox News commentator conceded that the presumptive Republican nominee patted himself on the back in his response to Omar Mateen’s assault at Pulse nightclub that left 49 dead and 53 wounded. Hours after the shooting, Trump wrote on social media that he appreciated the congratulations for "being right on radical Islamic terrorism." At Colbert's suggestion that Trump's response was "self-congratulatory," O'Reilly responded, "Yes, it is. He's a politician. It shouldn't shock you." Applause erupted when Colbert pointed out that it's grandstanding. "He wants to be president," O'Reilly said. "He's using this terrorism issue to bolster his popularity." "So he's making a political tool out of a terror attack," Colbert said. Said O'Reilly: "That's what he's doing." Check out the conversation above. Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar,rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S. Fundraising Websites - Crowdrise Read more on the Orlando Shooting: Celebrities And Politicians React To Mass Shooting At Queer Orlando Nightclub Blood Donors Needed After Orlando Gay Club Shooting, But Queer Men Are Banned Congress Is ‘Complicit’ In Orlando Slaughter, Senator Says Barack Obama On Orlando Shooting: ‘We Will Not Give In To Fear’ Pulse Nightclub Was A Lifeline For Orlando’s LGBTQ Community James Corden Opens Tony Awards With Powerful Message To Orlando Shooter Orlando Vigils Around The World Fight Hate With Love,...

Samantha Bee Reacts To Orlando Massacre With Powerful Gun Control Message

Dominique Mosbergen | June 14, 2016 | Comedy
Yes, Samantha Bee wants to take your guns away. In a powerful opening segment on her show “Full Frontal” on Monday night, the comedian reacted to Sunday’s mass shooting in Orlando. “Well, here we are,” Bee began. “Now, after a massacre, the standard operating procedure is that you stand on stage and deliver some well-meaning words about how we will get through this together. How love wins, how love conquers hate. And that is great, that is beautiful. But you know what? Fuck it! I am too angry for that. Love does not win, unless we start loving each other enough to fix our fucking problems.” Bee went on to rail against the country’s lax gun control laws, lambasted Florida Governor Rick Scott’s toothless reaction to the tragedy and called for the ban of automatic weapons. “We can’t constitutionally get rid of all guns, but can’t we get semiautomatic assault rifles out of the hands of civilians?” she asked. “‘Sam Bee wants to take your guns away!’ Yes -- the ones that mow down a roomful of people in seconds. Yes, I do want to take those guns away.” “These high-capacity penis substitutes are a shitty choice for hunting and home protection, but perfect for portable mayhem,” Bee added. There is, ultimately, no shortage of people eager to commit these atrocities, said Bee, and “we are making it far too easy for their derangement to kill us.” As a nation, the United States needs to “find the political will to reject a mass shooting per day as the price of freedom,” she stressed.
