is this what the voters voted for. joining me every thursday on the alex i'm i'm sure and i'll be speaking to us from the world of politics or business i'm show business i'll see you then. protests across the u.s. president trump forces as attorney general jeff sessions some who initially voted against islam one nation now standing against his removal. recently nothing i like about most of the people that donald trump appointed why are you protesting now. because i'm a is how. one woman in texas face betraying feminist values after costing them votes in favor of the state's republican candidate. i'm
very tired of being castigated as some sort of racist simply based on my skin color who are you who interests are you representing your only as a white woman representing the best interests of other white women then we absolutely have a problem absolutely and afghan peace talks are underway in moscow for the first time in seventeen years the taliban are engaged in high level multilateral negotiations. and i welcome swat teams and i asked a lot from moscow. tonight welcome to the program. the protesters across the united states have rallied in the wake of donald trump's the solution to fire attorney general jeff sessions they fear that the moon a probe into alleged russian meddling in the twenty sixteen presidential election but was led by sessions could now be sidelined in an unusual twist some of those
who initially opposed his nomination have now taken to the streets over his departure but a scale or more been found out they don't seem to care much for the man himself. jeff sessions the u.s. attorney general who just stepped down has got some new friends liberals and progressives across the country are taking to the streets to protest his removal it's over nine hundred cities that are having protests a major mobilization but was jeff sessions a friend of progressives hardly jeff sessions that i was a zero rating for the human rights campaign on gay rights a guy who asked the department of the national council of manny's why they were buying so many books on islam the zero tolerance policy means it was zero humanity and it makes zero sense for his politically motivated voting fraud prosecutions to his indifference toward criminal violations of civil rights laws back in two thousand and sixteen when jeff sessions was first nominated the liberal organization known as move on dot org issued a petition opposing him they accused him of making racist comments opposing equal
pay for women and immigration and opposing hate crimes legislation this is how jeff sessions confirmation hearings went dear friend. eric. but now the very same organizations that protested against his nomination are now protesting his departure they fear that the removal of sessions could pave the way for an end to the bob muller investigation into alleged ties between trump and russia the recent nothing i like about most of the people they found with trump appointed. i mean but you're protesting his departure right well actually now that's the key but i'm uli's physician and investigating until he finishes if it takes a month or more it takes two years so this isn't really about jeff sessions about
bob mueller. knowing snow in supposed to look that's what i'm here for what did you protest when he was appointed. i protested the immigration policy on the families that gathered day and are you protesting now. because i'm mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore move on very very definitely protested and had a petition going which i signed with regard to the appointment of joe of social as attorney general given his track record as a racist but the point is at this stage of the game i'm not and i don't think move on is protesting his removal but raul there who it is who is before steve outside of the constitutional provisions to be his replacement very deep board this thing back in two thousand and sixteen jeff sessions was public enemy number one as far as lots of liberals were concerned but now that he's been removed it seems that
jeff sessions has joined an elite group of people who've been fired by donald trump it seems like in twenty eighteen in the united states politics isn't so much about principles but rather about who is your friend and who is your enemy. r.t. new york the united states of course is still reeling from its fiercely disputed midterm elections which saw the democrats win control of the house but failed to take the senate and some key states also that high hopes for one of those is texas whether republican candidate ted cruz swung off to a tight battle now the rock is ations those women who voted for cruz betrayed feminism with their vote for one of the sports journalists set off the debate. fifty nine percent of white women voted for task fifty three percent of white women voted for donald trump so given this numbers who's the real face of feminism that's just the latest criticism of republican voting women by liberals and progressive
a few other cases. what is happening why are women even voting for him yeah i don't get you what it is i mean the country's. i mean the country was pretty. well we have tons of black presidents when i see women doing that i think why are they publicly disrespecting themselves voted against hillary clinton voted against their own voice. and by vote for anybody nobody you are a woman and you are never going to have it and it will be. so i guess. i don't get it. she scared me or put the issue of feminism in politics up for debate with women's rights advocates and the media commentator. the tradition of women just voting independently as they think and not based on their gender or their skin color or those kinds of things that is true independence i'm very tired
of being castigated as some sort of racist simply based on my skin color and especially and especially because i happen to be the mother of a child with brown skin and so to decide that based on my skin color that i as i sounds worry what are you voting for betty interests of that. the person accusing makes the person accusing me the actual racist. knowledge says there's no such thing as reverse racism we'll start there but here's the issue if you're not voting in the best interest of that boy you get the rule around child that you have then here's the question what type of mother are you because here's the question at the end of the day we want children to be protected so we need gun laws that reflect that if you're voting against the interest of your own child in school then we have to raise the question what are you voting for the second red flag and i'm sorry how do you know you're in do you have other women and their reproductive rights when
you know that ted cruz is not interested in protecting protecting reproductive rights when you know that ted cruz is not interested in equal pay for other women and you know that women who are brown skin and women of other ethnicities are paid what why women are paid then i have to ask you the question who are you who interest are you representing if you're only as a white woman were present in the best interest of other white women then we absolutely have a problem absolutely it is the republicans by the way it is the party of abraham lincoln that actually fought for civil rights and won over the democrats so if you want to vote in accordance with what is civil rights and you would want to vote republican now thirdly she brought up the issue and we don't know that those are how did she why is someone and we say when i was it was part of the seal there that's my stance and that's the feminine stand. on that now thirdly when she's talking about how do you say of course i want to get on this affair with i mean it's right so i view all of that i'm all that has made me girls who were aborted
what about their rights if you're going to talk about women's rights what about the baby girl's rights who are killed ten thousand per day every day you know i know you're blowing my mind about republicans you talk about abortion but do you protect the children while they're here if it's ok for you to lead a school full of children be shot i do because you as a woman want to have the right to bear arms but you don't protect those children who can't carry guns inside those school i mean it's insane and so when you talk about oh well i support a man who you know ted cruz but he doesn't support by with when you're a conservative woman you celebrate the things that you've actually accomplished based on your own you know own drive and your own freedom and your own will and your motivation and those kinds of things that's what i would rather be judged for the rather than things like going backward to things like religion and skin color and gender to me those are the whole of those are the ones that we say they.
are going to stay with and we need to get really come over here and basing things on marriage and accomplishment because because no matter what skin color or what gender you are you can be anything you want to be we're the freest best country you want to put in the heraldry race and this that you dream thing to celebrate it for not wanting to whine about it and to vote with your other white community and so we're going to forget about all of those things and just stand on my privileges and really do you resonate where she is and she wants to stand there i'd like to just say thank you to jim l. hill for her what she said i just support her as a michigan state alumni i want to say go girl. russia says the west has of been the diplomatic protocol and adopted a puppet of publicly accusing schoolroom doing soft austria accused one of its own formal high ranking all the officers of spying for russia as you know of course you know brings us the details. i had a chance to. comment on the recent allegations coming from austria that

claims that management turned a blind eye to the abuses saying instead the group of security guards had gone rogue a member of germany's left party was quick to point the blame at the country's migrant policy. this lady acceptable one word will the job as a police officer have to poll the constitution and have to be not yet full of human rights you cannot will be engaged in human rights abuses and forgery those senators are not just staff and under funded and it's like i'm the girl just said you know we're going to get him out of the what's happened is that angela merkel that know that she had no vision and she had no actual politics you're to take care of refugees and so this is a sign of complete and utter chaos the javits i gives up if coming up if you would

greetings and salutation is well knock me over with a feather watchers u.s. president donald trump and c.n.n. reporter jim acosta love affair is back making headlines again and what has become a now familiar dance routine at a news conference on wednesday the following waltz of dunces took place between acosta and trump. by me as one of the question is president i think that's an ask one of the the other folks that set out for me ma'am on this wednesday that's enough the president had one of the does it i may ask you on on the russian vest
a geisha. that's enough this altercation between the donald the acosta and some poor white house intern tragically caught between the two biggest egomaniacs in the room led to the white house press secretary sarah sanders tweeting as a result of today's incident the white house is suspending the hard pass of the reporter involved until further notice and now we can cue establishment corporate media outrage in about three to one bank go yes just about every corporate news journalist an organization immediately jumped into the press to defend the poor jim why can't we take out the isis bastards acosta and his grandstanding brand of reality t.v. journalism c.n.n. of course immediately released a statement surround sounding the alarm that this unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy in the country deserves better jim acosta as our full support well. yes i i can sympathize i feel for poor little jimmy i do i feel his
pain i mean after all we here at r.t. about our first amendment rights and journalist credentials denied and suspended by the u.s. congress for more than a year now since donald trump's department of justice forced us under threat of arrest to register as foreign agents for you know reporting news and raising questions that make those in power uncomfortable but i guess our first amendment rights are as important as little jemmy's because our salaries are paid for by corporate insurance giants and big pharma see how it all kind of swirls around now let's start watching the hawks. but that's. it's like. if. you. like you know that i got.
