Dave Chappelle Stumps for Maryland Dem Governor Candidate Ben Jealous

Veteran comedian Dave Chappelle campaigned for former NAACP president Ben Jealous on Friday, a rare political gesture for the longtime actor. “So you know, I’m out of my element,” Chappelle said at an event at Olde Towne Inn in Largo, Maryland, NPR reports. “You know politics has never been my thing.” “I think as a leader, as an organizer … this man is excellent. I wouldn’t lie to you; I’d stake my whole reputation on it,” Chappelle told the audience at the event in suburban Washington. Dave Chappelle’s dad and mine were activists and best friends.

In a Saturday appearance on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” actor Rob Reiner stressed the importance of the November 2018 elections because the country was fighting for the “soul of democracy” right. “[T]he soul of democracy, we’re fighting for it right now and 2018, this November, I’m telling you, a lot is going to go — everybody says this every time, it’s the most important election — this really is.

Susan Rice Rips Trump for Jab at Obama on Russia, Crimea — ‘Disgraceful,’ ‘Outrageous’

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice criticized President Donald Trump for his remarks at the G7 summit a day earlier in Charlevoix, Quebec tying former President Barack Obama to Russia’s “annexation” of Crimea. Trump suggested Obama could have done more about Russia’s misdeeds when asked about welcoming Russia back into the G7. Rice called that a disgraceful statement and defended the Obama administration’s tack toward Russia. “It’s a disgraceful statement,” Rice said. “The fact of the matter is Russia had invaded Georgia. It then had invaded Ukraine. We rallied the entire European Union and many other partners to impose tough sanctions on Russia for its annexation. We supported the Ukrainian government to build up its defensive military capacity, and along with our G7 partners, we agreed that Russia should no longer be part of this community of the G8.” “That’s outrageous,” she added. “The United States has long upheld international law. It was the most brazen violation of another country’s sovereignty that’s occurred in recent years. For the president of the United States to blame his predecessor rather than to understand that Russia is our adversary — Russia has taken on behavior
