This Fox News host roasted Trump over his Charlottesville response. It's a must-see.

'You’ve decided that the portion of your base that is absolutely racist is so significant, so valuable that you hesitate ... to risk turning them off.'

This Fox News host roasted Trump over his Charlottesville response. It's a must-see.

It's not every day you see a Fox News host take Donald Trump to task, but Eboni K. Williams did just that on the Aug. 14 episode of "Fox News Specialists."

After Trump's tepid response to white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Williams — who, like many on the network, is generally pretty supportive of Trump and his agenda — tore into his "cowardly and dangerous" remarks. She was speaking, of course, to Trump's "many sides" comment on Aug. 12.

While Trump somewhat begrudgingly offered a more straightforward denunciation of white supremacists and Nazis on Aug. 14 (followed by a tweet calling the media "truly bad people" for not cheering his initial remarks), the damage had already been done.

Williams touched on a fear held by many related to Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan: who, exactly, is included in this "great" America?

"Were Jews, Blacks, gays, and Hispanics included in the return of America to her glory years?" she mused. "Or would some of us be left out?"

"In a moment where you could have been crystal clear where you stand on the issue of inclusion, standing up against white supremacy and domestic terrorism, you very intentionally chose to be ambiguous and equivocate," she said.

Is Trump racist? Williams wouldn't go so far as to label him as such, but she did point out that Trump is "all too happy" to win the support of racists.

"President Trump, I do not know your heart, but what I do know for sure is that you’ve clearly done the math," Williams said. "You’ve decided that the portion of your base that is absolutely racist is so significant, so valuable that you hesitate ― even in the face of blatant, flagrant hatred ― to risk turning them off and thereby crippling your political stronghold."

Ultimately, the problems caused by Trump's decision to pander to racists can be solved by just one man: Trump himself.

Given his penchant for catching a few hours of cable news throughout the day, this blistering segment might have been the most important thing he heard on Monday.

"You are uniquely positioned to forcefully call out evil, anti-American domestic terrorists," Williams urged. "We certainly cannot change what we fail to acknowledge. I am asking you to address their anger, their misplaced fears. Let them know this is America, land of opportunity, and there is indeed enough to go around."

Did you know one in five families are unable to provide everyday essentials and food for their children? This summer was also the hungriest on record with one in four children not knowing where their next meal will come from – an increase from one in seven children prior to the pandemic. The effects of COVID-19 continue to be felt around the country and many people struggle to secure basic needs. Unemployment is at an all-time high and an alarming number of families face food insecurity, not only from the increased financial burdens but also because many students and families rely on schools for school meal programs and other daily essentials.

This school year is unlike any other. Frito-Lay knew the critical need to ensure children have enough food and resources to succeed. The company quickly pivoted to expand its partnership with Feed the Children, a leading nonprofit focused on alleviating childhood hunger, to create the "Building the Future Together" program to provide shelf-stable food to supplement more than a quarter-million meals and distribute 500,000 pantry staples, school supplies, snacks, books, hand sanitizer, and personal care items to schools in underserved communities.

Sir David Attenborough has one of the most recognized and beloved voices in the world. The British broadcaster and nature historian has spent most of his 94 years on Earth educating humanity about the wonders of the natural world, inspiring multiple generations to care about the planet we all call home.

And now, Attenborough has made a new name for himself. Not only has he joined the cool kids on Instagram, he's broken the record for reaching a million followers in the shortest period. It only took four hours and 44 minutes, which is less time than it took Jennifer Aniston, who held the title before him at 5 hours and 16 minutes.

A day later, Attenborough is sitting at a whopping 3.4 million followers. And he only has two Instagram posts so far, both of them videos. But just watch his first one and you'll see why he's attracted so many fans.

Same-sex marriage is legal in America and these days 63% of all Americans support the idea. Ten years ago, it was still a controversial issue among Democrats, but in 2019, 79% say they support same-sex marriage.

The issue played a big role in the Democratic primary for the Delaware's House of Representatives 27th district race. On September 15, Eric Morrison defeated incumbent Earl Jacques in a landslide and gay rights was a central issue.

In 2013, Jaques voted against same-sex marriage and refused to vote yes or no on banning gay conversion therapy in the state. On the other hand, Morrison is a gay drag queen who performs under the name Anita Mann and is very progressive on LGBTQ issues.

One night in 2018, Sheila and Steve Albers took their two youngest sons out to dinner. Their 17-year-old son, John, was in a crabby mood—not an uncommon occurrence for the teen who struggled with mental health issues—so he stayed home.

A half hour later, Sheila's started getting text messages that John wasn't safe. He had posted messages with suicidal ideations on social media and his friends had called the police to check on him. The Albers immediately raced home.

When they got there, they were met with a surreal scene. Their minivan was in the neighbor's yard across the street. John had been shot in the driver's seat six times by a police officer who had arrived to check on him. The officer had fired two shots as the teen slowly backed the van out of the garage, then 11 more after the van spun around backward. But all the officers told the Albers was that John had "passed" and had been shot. They wouldn't find out until the next day who had shot and killed him.
