House Foreign Affairs Committee Chair: 'Not Close' to Removing Omar from Committee

On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-NY) criticized remarks made by Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and said he isn’t close to removing her from her spot on the committee.

He continued, “I don’t know that that would do anything except exacerbate the situation even more.

Country Singer Reba McEntire: 'Not My Job' to Talk About Politics

Country singer Reba McEntire bucked the Hollywood trend of liberal activism in a recent media appearance, saying that talking politics is “not my job.” “You can vote in and you can say what you want to, and you can choose not to say what you want to,” Reba McEntire said about America. The 63-year-old is part of a small but significant number of Hollywood stars that don’t like to preach politics.

Dave Chappelle: Trump Tore Us Up — He's 'Not Culturally Astute' Enough to Heal the Nation

Friday 0n MSNBC’s “Deadline,” guest host John Heilemann played a clip from his Showtime show “The Circus” of an interview with comedian Dave Chappelle. When asked about President Donald Trump’s job performance, Chappelle said, “Apparently he is having a terrible go of it. I don’t think that he is living up to his part of the bargain, and I’m troubled by politicians that only speak to people that they believe will vote for them. And it is sad because, you know, he’s got the bully pulpit. It’s the highest office in our land. Hopefully, we can either hold him to task or get someone in there that will think about all of us.” He added, “I want the country to survive this guy, and I’m sure it will. But I think that there will be a hangover after this presidency, unlike anything that I’ve ever lived through. I think that we’ve gone far rhetorically. And I think that we just got a little mending to do. And I don’t think that he is the kind of person that is culturally astute enough to really lead the charge on mending the fence. But he sure did tear it the shit up didn’t he?” Follow
