Tucker Carlson Calls Black Lives Matter Protests a ‘Pandemic': ‘Minneapolis Was Our Wuhan'
Fox News host Tucker Carlson continued his relentless attacks on social justice movement Black Lives Matter on Wednesday night, likening the protests over police brutality to coronavirus while describing the city where George Floyd was killed as "our Wuhan."Carlson led off his top-rated Fox News primetime program by referencing COVID-19, a disease that has currently killed roughly 130,000 Americans, in an effort to draw a comparison to the recent push for racial justice kicked off by Floyd's late-May death."We spent an awful lot of time this spring talking about viruses and how they spread," he proclaimed. "One person infects another person who infects a third who then has contact with a larger group of people and infects 20 more, each of whom, and you know how it works. It's exponential. Pretty soon, individuals thousands of miles from the source of the outbreaks start getting sick."Pivoting to the BLM movement, the conservative host asserted that "craziness spreads very much the same way," adding that a "single lunatic can pass a debilitating case of it to millions of others with just one appearance on MSNBC" or via Twitter."Hysteria is the most communicable disease known to man," Carlson declared. "And we're now living through a pandemic of it.""On Memorial Day weekend, a man called George Floyd died in police custody in Minnesota," he continued. "That's where this outbreak first began. Minneapolis was our Wuhan. The first cases appeared a little over a

Biden pulls together hundreds of lawyers as a bulwark against election trickery
"We put together 600 lawyers and a group of people throughout the country who are going into every single state to try to figure out whether chicanery is likely to take place," Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, said on a video conference with donors to his campaign. Biden's remarks come as the candidate offers dire warnings about efforts by Republicans to cheat in the Nov. 3 election while also criticizing his election opponent, Republican President Donald Trump, for undermining confidence in the vote. A senior political adviser and top lawyer for Trump's campaign, Justin Clark, said Biden is lying and stoking fear while Democrats are trying to "fundamentally change" how elections are conducted, an apparent reference to their support for widespread mail-in voting.

Bill Maher Says White People Should Go Easy on Other White People ‘Whose Heart Is in The Right Place' About BLM
On Friday's episode of "Real Time," Bill Maher used the "New Rules" segment to mock white people for "culturally appropriating" the Black Lives Matter movement. But he also asked activists to go just a little bit easier on white people who might be trying to join the movement but still have some more learning to do to get caught up.‘New rule: black people have to demand that white people stop culturally appropriating how mad they are about racism. It's great that Caucasians have finally joined the fight for racial justice in unprecedented numbers, but hating racism the most? You can't steal that," Maher began.Maher joked that "Elvis taking little Richard's act, that was bad enough," and then he mentioned Victor Sengbe, a Black Oakland resident who hung ropes around his local park to serve as exercise aids, but ended up being condemned as racist by Oakland's mayor, Libby Schaaf, because they resembled nooses.Also Read: Bill Maher Imagines Future Headlines From His Summer Break: 'All Musicians on Earth Demand Trump Stop Playing Their Music'"She said, ‘These incidents will be investigated as a hate crime.' Why is this white woman seeing racism where a black man isn't? The mayor also said, ‘intentions don't matter.' But they do matter," Maher said before transitioning to his main point. "And white people need to stop trying to cancel other white people whose heart is in the right place but don't get it exactly right
