Hillary: ‘Absurd,’ ‘Appalling’ GOP Candidates Calling to ‘Pull People Out of Their Homes’

Friday, Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said it is “absurd and appalling” Republican candidates are calling to “pull people out of their homes and their workplaces” and deport them. When asked how she planned on dealing with 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States, Clinton said, “Well, I’m glad you asked me that because I know that there are some on the other side who are seriously advocating to deport 11-12 million people who are working here. I find it the height of irony that a party which espouses small government would want to unleash a massive law enforcement effort, including perhaps National Guard and others, to go and literally pull people out of their homes and their workplaces, round them up, put them on, I don’t know, in buses, boxcars, in order to take them across our border.” She continued, “I just find that not

Thursday night on MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes,” Rep. Alan Grayson (R-FL), Democratic hopeful for U.S. Senate, said supporters of Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump are racist and “the worst 1.2 percentin America.” Grayson said, “People say about Trump that he’s saying what they’re thinking and nobody else is saying. They’re nuts. So that’s a pretty fundamental difference. Recognize how narrow his support base really is. Only 4 percent of the public votes in a Republican primary. He’s got 30 percent of 4 percent. We’re looking at the worst 1.2 percent in America. ” He continued, “He’s thrown away the dog whistle. It used to be you had to speak in metaphors, now you can just come right out and be racist. You know who likes that? The racists like that.” When asked, “Are you saying that that’s who his supporters are?” Grayson added, “Why else would people feel so threatened by brown people if

Former NBA great Charles Barkley appeared Friday NBC Sports Network’s “The Dan Patrick Show” and discussed the early parts of his NBA career, calling out his old agent for stealing from him. “I signed with a scumbag agent. I don’t want to mention his name: Les Lessnick! If I saw him today, I would blow his damn brains out. I hate that S.O.B.” Patrick asked Barkley to clarify, “You don’t mean you would shoot him?” “I would if I had a gun,” responded Barkley. “I would beat his ass down like a dog. That’s the worst thing you can do for somebody, Dan, is steal from them. When you steal from somebody, you are saying to them I don’t respect how hard you worked for your money. When somebody steals from you, that’s what they’re saying. They’re breaking the law like people say they break the law. No. When somebody steals from you, they’re saying to

Rubio: Tyranny the Source of World Instability — Cites N Koreans, China, Russia, Radical Islam, Iran

In an appearance on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Friday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), a candidate for the 2016 Republican nomination, took aim at China, putting the Asia nation in the same category with other “tyrannies” in the world, which he said was the root cause of instability in the world. “Look around the world today,” Rubio said. “Every source of instability on this planet is created by a tyranny. It’s the North Koreans, the Chinese, the Russians, radical Islamists and Iran. What do all five of them have in common? They are all tyrannies. None of them are democracies obviously.” “In Moscow, if you oppose Putin you wind up poisoned or dead,” he added. “In China, there’s well-documented human rights abuses. North Korea is horrifying, what happens there. We all know about ISIS. We all know about Iran.” Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor
