Trump Mocked Dr. Ford, and California is being sued by the Justice Department

Trump held a rally in Mississippi last night. The biggest headline - Trump spent a significant amount of time mocking Dr. Ford's claims against Kavanaugh. The audience laughed as Trump ran through a list of what he described as holes in Christine Blasey Ford's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee; "How did you get home? 'I don't remember,'' Trump said at the rally in Southaven. 'How did you get there? 'I don't remember.' Where is the place? 'I don't remember.' How many years ago was it? 'I don't know. I don't know. I don't know.''Imitating Ford, he added, 'But I had one beer — that's the only thing I remember.' It marked the sharpest criticism by Trump of Ford since she came forward publicly with the allegation last month. He had previously called Ford a "very credible witness." Michael Bromwich, an attorney for Ford, called Trump's performance "a vicious, vile and soulless attack" and said the president is "a profile in cowardice." Trumps comments received scrutiny by the public for being “insensitive” and crass” yet Republicans are still pushing full steam ahead to vote on Kavanaugh's nomination as soon as possible.

Last year, the FCC rolled back rules that went into effect in 2015 banning cable and telecom companies from blocking or slowing down websites and applications. The rollback dramatically favored Internet companies. Broadband companies and then-FCC board member Ajit Pai — who was appointed as chairman of the commission in 2017 — opposed net neutrality in 2015 arguing that it prevented the opportunity for investment in broadband companies and stifled innovation. California passed a state law would guarantee net neutrality. The Justice Department upon hearing of California’s new law filed a lawsuit against the state. They claim the new law illegally conflicts with federal rules. Attorney Jeff Sessions said in a statement, "under the Constitution, states do not regulate interstate commerce — the federal government does." He added, "once again the California legislature has enacted an extreme and illegal state law attempting to frustrate federal policy." California state Sen. Scott Wiener, an author of the state bill, struck back, saying in a statement that the Justice Department lawsuit is just the latest attempt by the administration to block the state's initiatives."We've been down this road before: when Trump and Sessions sued Calif. and claimed we lacked the power to protect immigrants. California fought Trump and Sessions on their immigration lawsuit — California won — and California will fight this lawsuit as well."
