NBC’s choice is helping unite Latinos in opposition to the candidate

It is now well-known where GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump stands on immigration: He has called Mexicans “rapists” and criminals and has emphasized his plan to build a wall on the Mexican border. It’s less clear where NBC stands on Trump: A wave of Latino disapproval led NBC to dump him as host of itsCelebrity Apprentice series and drop its participation in Trump’s Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants. But now the “The Donald” has made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and is scheduled to be the host forSaturday Night Live this week.

NBC’s inconsistency shouldn’t surprise anyone: After all, Trump has been pointed as one of the the main reasons behind record ratings for the GOP debates.

MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton was once a paid informant for the FBI, according to a lengthy investigation by The Smoking Gun. Documents unearthed by the website show that Sharpton was once known as FBI asset CI-7, who aided the federal agency as part of a task force fighting organized crime. His targets included the Genovese family, the most powerful mafia family operating in the country.

Sharpton worked alongside agents of the FBI and the NYPD, beginning in the 1980s and for years after, according to hundreds of pages of sworn affidavits that TSG obtained by way of Freedom of Information requests, court records and interviews with other agents of the so-called “Genovese squad.”

Pope Francis Responds to Rush Limbaugh’s “Marxist” Charges

In an interview with Italian newspaper La Stampa, Pope Francis responded on Saturday to Rush Limbaugh’s recent accusation that he is a “pure Marxist.”

Asked how it felt to be called a Marxist, Time Magazine’s Person of the Year answered:

“The Marxist ideology is wrong. But I have met many Marxists in my life who are good people, so I don’t feel offended.”

Pope Francis went on to reiterate his criticism of trickle down economics, saying it never benefits the poor, instead resulting in the rich simply keeping more for themselves:

“The only specific quote I used was the one regarding the “trickle-down theories” which assume that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and social inclusiveness in the world. The promise was that when the glass was full, it would overflow, benefitting the poor. But what happens instead, is that when the glass is full, it magically gets bigger nothing ever comes out for the poor. This was the only reference to a specific theory. I was not, I repeat, speaking from a technical point of view but according to the Church’s social doctrine. This does not mean being a Marxist.”
