|Beto OâRourke Dunks on âDisgraced TV Hostâ Bill OâReilly ||Flame out: NFL field pyrotechnics get brief ban |
Bill OâReilly, who was ousted by Fox News two-and-a-half years ago following decades of sexual-harassment allegations and payouts to victims, made a desperate bid for relevance this week when he decided to live-tweet the fourth Democratic presidential primary debate.Â Among OâReillyâs insights were that he found the âTrump bashing festivalâ by the candidates âboring,â he wanted Joe Biden to âfight backâ harder and that Elizabeth Warren âwants a wealth tax to pay for free stuff, lots of free stuff. Lots.â Later, he added, âThe Democrats on the stage hate Turkey. The country, not the meal. They might be right.âÂ Then came former Rep. Beto OâRourkeâs answer to a question about Warrenâs wealth tax proposal. âI think it's part of the solution,â he said, before going on to accuse Senator Warren of being âmore focused on being punitive and pitting some part of the country against the other instead of lifting people up and making sure that this country comes together around those solutions.âÂ âI think of a woman that I met in Las Vegas, Nevada,â OâRourke continued. âShe's working four jobs, raising her child with disabilities, and any American with disabilities knows just how hard it is to make it and get by in this country already.âÂ It was this anecdote that caught OâReillyâs ear. He wasnât buying it. âBeto says he met a woman working FOUR jobs,â he tweeted. âAnd raising a special needs child. I donât believe him. Sorry.âÂ The response from OâRourke came with receipts.Â Along with a photo of the woman and her disabled daughter, he replied, âThis is her. Her name is Gina. Her daughter's name is Summer. The problem with our economy is she has to live in her carâwhile a disgraced TV host like you makes millions.âÂ OâReilly, who at one point had enough money to shell out at least $32 million in sexual harassment settlements before Fox News finally decided to cut him loose, had nothing to say in response to that.But the tweet did get a response from health care expert and former Obama administration official Andy Slavitt, who tweeted, âI would invite @BillOReilly to get a real understanding of what life is like for many in the disability community or raising a special needs or chronically ill child. But that would be cruel to the people whoâd have to meet him.âÂ Stephen Colbert Takes Bill OâReilly to Task Over His $32 Million Sexual-Harassment SettlementRead more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One
Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nationâ€™s military, the mindâ€™s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagonâ€™s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.
Living Wages Are A Global Problem
The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.
Ukraine: Not What It Seems
After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.
In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder
In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.
Coup Or Civil War In Egypt
The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
