Brooks Suggests Voting For Trump Makes Pro-Lifers Hypocritical

April 13th, 2024 10:00 AM

Donald Trump may have disappointed pro-life activists with his embrace of a federalist stance on abortion, but with President Joe Biden being a far-left abortion zealot, they will still vote for him.

March 7th, 2024 11:18 AM

The PBS NewsHour was friendly territory for Biden press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Wednesday night. PBS anchor Geoff Bennett and Jean-Pierre were both MSNBC regulars a few years back.
