CNN’s Jim Acosta demanded answers from New York City mayoral candidate Andrew Yang following Yang’s appearance on Tucker Carlson’s digital show on the Fox Nation streaming service. 

“I mean, let’s just say he’s a bad person,” Acosta told Yang. “And he represents so much of what is wrong in television news these days.” 

Yang said he appeared on Carlson’s show because the Fox News host commands a large audience. Yang also said that he believes “we need to turn down the temperature in this country.” 

While on Carlson’s program, Yang discussed leaving the Democratic party to chart a new path. 

“Why didn’t you go after [Carlson] when he’s citing the Unabomber and just talking about crazy stuff?” Acosta asked Yang in response to Carlson’s statement about the Unabomber and his “smart analysis” of “the way systems work.” 

“If you want to try and build a unifying popular movement that does call attention to the fact that our system’s not working, really, for anyone, you have to, again, reach out,” said Yang.

Tiffany Cross: Sage Steele, Van Jones, & Carlos Watson Not Black Voices

Cross grouped Steele, Van Jones, and Ozy founder Carlos Watson as people “prompted up by wealthy or powerful white Americans.”

MSNBC weekend host Tiffany Cross criticized several prominent Black media figures, including ESPN’s Sage Steele, during a segment on her Cross Connection show Saturday.

Cross grouped Steele, Van Jones, and Ozy founder Carlos Watson as people “prompted up by wealthy or powerful white Americans.”

“We, the keepers of the culture, don’t really rock with any of them like that,” said Cross. “Now, obviously, the three of these folks are definitely Black faces. However, they are not necessarily Black voices. And there’s a difference.”

Cross’ gripe with Steele centers on her comments about former President Barack Obama, whose birth father abandoned him. Steele told former NFL quarterback Jay Cutler during his podcast Uncut that Obama was raised by white parents.

“So that is undoubtedly a Black face whether or not she knows it, but it is definitely not a Black voice,” Cross said. Yet, I am sure someone is giving themselves a big diversity pat on the back.”

Cross criticized Jones for taking it easy on former President Donald Trump during his last State of the Union address. She also referred to him as “Jeff Bezos’ Black friend.”

She slammed Watson for his ability to raise funds for Ozy, saying, “he has the ability to make white people feel comfortable.”

Bill Maher Gives Dark Prediction Ahead of Upcoming Elections

Maher believes that Trump is preparing to take back the White House as he hopes to gain the Republican nomination and announce his presidential candidacy.

2021 is nearing its end, and 2022 marks the mid-term elections in the United States, and before anyone can blink, various candidates will be looking to run in the 2024 presidential election. 

During Friday’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” host Bill Maher offered up a prediction as elections are around the corner. Ahead of the 2024 presidential election, the comedian suggested that Capitol Hill rioters would return more vigorous than they were on January 6.

Furthermore, Maher believes that Trump is preparing to take back the White House as he hopes to gain the Republican nomination and announce his presidential candidacy.

“I’ve been saying ever since he lost. He’s like a shark that’s not gone, just gone out to sea. But actually, he’s been quietly eating people this whole time. By eating people, I mean he’s been methodically purging the Republican Party of anyone who voted for his impeachment or doesn’t agree that he’s the rightful leader of the Seven Kingdoms,” Maher said.

Maher details that Trump supporters who raided the Capitol on January 6 will likely return stronger amid a potential wave of violence that would explode nationwide if Trump won the 2024 race. 

“The ding dongs who sacked the Capitol last year? That was like when Al Qaeda tried to take down the World Trade Center, the first time with a van. It was a joke. But the next time they came back with planes,” Maher said.
