Fri, 08/18/2017 - 12:20

In light of the recent movement to remove Confederate statues, NBA legend Charles Barkley said worrying about “those stupid statues” was a “waste” of time. Barkley said in his 54 years he has “never thought about those statues,” adding he would rather worry about bettering the black community. “I’m not going to waste my time screaming at a neo-nazi who’s going to hate me no matter what,” Barkley told WBRC’s Rick Karle. “And I’m not going to waste my time worrying about these statues. I’ve always ignored them.” The Alabama native added, “I’m going to keep trying to make a difference, number one in the black community because I’m black. But I’m also going to try to do good things in the world.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

Fri, 08/18/2017 - 11:08

Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski called President Donald Trump’s reaction to a Barcelona terror attack a day earlier something that made it seem that “we’re at a low point in American history.” Co-host Joe Scarborough mentioned the Civil War and Great Depression, to which Brzezinski said it was still a “pretty low point,” then she qualified her remarks by saying a low point in “presidential history.” Partial transcript as follows: GEIST: I don’t want to speak to President Lincoln posthumously, but I suspect if he heard about an attack in Barcelona where now 14 people have been killed, he wouldn’t have made his second reaction to that to look up the story, the false story, about Gen. Pershing putting pig’s blood on bullets. BRZEZINSKI: It seems that we’re at a low point in American history. SCARBOROUGH: Well, the Civil War was probably a little worse. (CROSSTALK) BRZEZINSKI: Well, I’m worried about what’s coming SCARBOROUGH: Great Depression, pretty bad. That was probably worse. BRZEZINSKI: This is a pretty low point. (CROSSTALK) BRZEZINSKI: How about this? We’re at a low point in presidential history. SCARBOROUGH: Did you ever see how Gerald Ford dressed in the middle of the disco era? (h/t WFB) Follow
