Gillibrand urges criticism for abortion comments
In an interview with CBS News's Ed O & # 39; Keefe on Friday afternoon, Kirsten Gillibrand urged criticism that she had equated with anti-abortion activism against racism in an interview with Anti the Des Moines Register in early June.
In an interview with the registry, Gillibrand likened the nomination of judges for abortion rights to the nomination of judges with racist beliefs. Gillibrand has previously stated that she would only nominate judges who support abortion rights for the Bundesbank.
"Imagine it's OK to appoint a racist, anti-Semitic or homophobic judge," she continued. "Ask someone to appoint someone to take basic human rights to a group of people in America … I do not think these are any political issues anymore."
"All of this effort by President Trump and other ultra-radical, conservative judges and judges to impose their faith on Americans violates our constitution," Gillibrand told the registry.
O & # 39; Keefe asked Gillibrand about these comments and asked for clarification.
"What I said is, as President of the United States, I would just appoint judges or judges who see Roe v. Wade – that it's been a precedent for over 40 years, the country's law," Gillibrand said, adding that a woman's right to "take away" abortion "undermines our civil rights and our human rights, and I believe there is no room in our party for candidates who do not understand that these are fundamental human rights."
She also said that people in the Democratic Party with anti-abortion rights should not be considered in favor of president.
"I do not think they should do it as democrats because they say literally: 'Women in America do not deserve human rights, women in America do not have the opportunity to make the most important decision of their lives,' said Gillibrand.

What is the right way to eat fish in the fry?
Food for presidential candidates is often a threat to electoral campaigns. Ask John Kerry, who notoriously ordered Swiss cheese with his cheesesteak in Philadelphia. Or Mitt Romney, who was wrong in Mississippi about his "kitschy things". At the last election, John Kasich was denounced for eating his pizza with knife and fork.
On the fish roast fish is dredged in cornmeal, flour and spices and then cooked in vats with hot oil and served on a piece of white bread with hot sauce.
While Clyburn does not endorse anyone, it does help at least candidates to avoid fish-fry food. He tweeted instructions and a short video in which former President Obama ate fish roast.
"How to Eat Fish in Fish Roasting: Step 1: Get Your Fish, Step 2: Wrap the Fish in White Bread, Step 3: Apply Hot Sauce, Step 4: Enjoy," wrote Clyburn.
The organizers ordered 4,400 pounds of fish and 6,400 slices of bread to the masses to nourish.
Clyburn, the house's most powerful African American, is the political king of the state. His fish roast, which he has been hosting for almost 30 years, has become an important campaign stop for presidential candidates, especially after South Carolina officially became an early primary state in 2008. However, he refused to support the Democratic primary in 2008 in Clyburn supports Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in 2016.
Biden Encourages Controversy with Commentaries on Segregationists
Days before the fish roast, Joe Biden became controversial when he spoke Speaking about his relationship with James Eastland, a Mississippi senator and known segregationist from a fundraiser in New York City Tuesday. Biden was referring to Eastland when he pleaded for more courtesy in Washington.
"I was in a caucus with James O. Eastland," Biden told the crowd. "He never called me 'boy.' He always called me, son."
Eastland, longtime chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, vehemently opposed the civil rights movement and was a self-confessed white supremacist.
"At least there was some courtesy," Biden said in his remarks on Tuesday. "We did things, we did not agree on anything, we did things." Today he said: "They look to the other side and are the enemy."
On Wednesday, some of his Democratic opponents criticized him for his remarks and a couple even asked him to apologize. Biden said Wednesday, "The point I'm talking about is that you do not have to agree, you do not have to like people about their views, but you just do the case and you beat them." He did not apologize and instead stated, "There is no racist bone in my body."

Who do Democrats like in South Carolina so far?
A CBS News Battleground Tracker poll released on Thursday revealed that Biden is the first choice among the Democrats in South Carolina and receives 45% support from voters in the party.
Most African Americans consider Biden and half consider Bernie Sanders. One-third of black voters are considering supporting Kamala Harris. The poll, however, was conducted before Biden made his comments about working with Segregat ionist senators in the past.
Biden's ties to President Barack Obama help him reach the top in South Carolina and the state with the first election. More than eight out of ten (including most whites and blacks) state that his past as Vice President of President Obama is one reason to support him and overshadow things like his political stance and his time in the Senate.
