When accused pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein died over the weekend, the president of the United States retweeted a far-right conspiracy theory that claimed the Clintons murdered him.

On the fifth anniversary of Michael Brown’s death at the hands of a police officer, Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris repeated false rumors about Brown’s death — specifically the now-proven lie he was killed mercilessly while attempting to surrender with his hands up.

When the Miss America pageant decided to drop its swimsuit competition, Gretchen Carlson described it as a “cultural revolution.” The New York Times described it as an effort to “redefine its role in an era of female empowerment and gender equality.”

When the national anthem played on NFL fields across America a few years ago, some players used that as an opportunity to protest how police treat African Americans.

When the president saw the kneeling, he used their protests as a political football and ran with it to energize his base.
