Florida's new election law praised as model for all states
The governor of Florida is getting rave reviews from conservatives after signing an election integrity bill into law.
Recently the left-leaning media outlet, Politico, published an op-ed suggesting that Franken — the former "Saturday Night Live" comedian — should be leading Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's running mate to counter Donald Trump.
Its editorial piece suggested that Franken would help the Democrats accomplish three objectives: preventing youths from snubbing Clinton; protecting the Rust Belt; and navigate an precedented media circus dominated by Trump.
Olive Tree Ministries founder and director Jan Markell, who also hosts American Family Radio’s “Understanding the Times” program, says that she doesn't buy into the argument that Franken's celebrity background would counter reality TV icon Trump.
"He only won at least the first election in 2008 because of fraud — not because he was a celebrity,” Markell says about Franken. “I just don't see that it's celebrity versus celebrity.”
The Christian leader, whose ministry’s headquarters are in Minnesota, argues that comparing Trump and Franken is like comparing apples to oranges.
“I don't think there's any comparison between Donald Trump and Al Franken — whose only claim to fame is 'Saturday Night Live,' where he made a fool of himself on that program."
Markell, a staunch defender of Israel, also argues that Franken would be bad for Israel.
"He would unite with Hillary Clinton in doing the most damage to Israel possible,” the pro-Israel advocate expressed. “I don't think there could be a worse one to punch than a Clinton-Franken ticket.”
She also claims that Clinton and Franken would continue the damage that the Obama administration has done with America’s relationship with its most important ally in the Middle East.
“They both loathe the nation of Israel,” Markell tells OneNewsNow, and Frank is "one of these Jews who hates his own identity."
