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 that girls who are encouraged to discover and develop their strengths tend to be more likely to achieve their goals? It's true. The question, however, is how to encourage girls to develop self-confidence and grow up healthy, educated, and independent.

The answer lies in Girls Inc., a national nonprofit serving girls ages 5-18 in more than 350 cities across North America. Since first forming in 1864 to serve girls and young women who were experiencing upheaval in the aftermath of the Civil War, they've been on a mission to inspire girls to kick butt and step into leadership roles — today and in the future.

This is why Macy's has committed to partnering with Girls Inc. and making it easy to support their mission. In a national campaign running throughout September 2021, customers can round up their in-store purchases to the nearest dollar or donate online to support Girls Inc. and empower girls throughout the country.


Kaylin St. Victor, a senior at Brentwood High School in New York, is one of those girls. She became involved in the Long Island affiliate of Girls Inc. when she was in 9th grade, quickly becoming a role model for her peers.

Within her first year in the organization, she bravely took on speaking opportunities and participated in several summer programs focused on advocacy, leadership, and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). "The women that I met each have a story that inspires me to become a better person than I was yesterday," said St. Victor. She credits her time at Girls Inc. with making her stronger and more comfortable in her own skin — confidence that directly translates to high achievement in education and the workforce.

In 2020, Macy's helped raise $1.3 million in support of their STEM and college and career readiness programming for more than 26,000 girls. In fact, according to a recent study, Girls Inc. girls are significantly more likely than their peers to enjoy math and science, to be interested in STEM careers, and to perform better on standardized math tests.

In the Pacific Northwest, orca sightings are a fairly common occurrence. Still, tourists and locals alike marvel when a pod of "sea pandas" swim by, whipping out their phones to capture some of nature's most beautiful and intelligent creatures in their natural habitat.

While orcas aren't a threat to humans, there's a reason they're called "killer whales." To their prey, which includes just about everything that swims except humans, they are terrifying apex predators who hunt in packs and will even coordinate to attack whales several times their own size.

So if you're a human alone on a little platform boat, and a sea lion that a group of orcas was eyeing for lunch jumps onto your boat, you might feel a little wary. Especially when those orcas don't just swim on by, but surround you head-on.

Watch exactly that scenario play out (language warning, if you've got wee ones you don't want f-bombed):
