A cleanup organizer described the third world conditions that exist at the Haitian immigrant encampment under the Del Rio international bridge.

John Rourke, who organizes cleanups around the world, appeared on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show on Wednesday.

Rourke said he was disturbed by the unsanitary conditions where thousands of Haitians live in squalor under the bridge.

He said his organization picked up thousands of pounds of garbage from under the bridge.

Rourke described Haitians using sticks and branches to build makeshift lean-to shelters under trees near the bridge. The migrants were forced to move because the mounds of smelly garbage attracted flies, coyotes, roaches, and red ants.

"Let me tell you what I saw," Rourke told Tucker.

"I saw people washing babies in the Rio Grande.

"I saw ladies breastfeeding babies, sleeping in dirt, 107 degrees outside, red ants everywhere, real coyotes - the ones that have four legs walking around.

"People are literally knocking down trees and setting up lean-tos and teepees and sleeping under those."

Over 15,000 Haitians made the perilous journey from South America and Mexico after messages on What's app told them U.S. Pres. Joe Biden would treat them kindly and give them jobs.

On the last leg of the trip - crossing the Rio Grande in knee-deep water - they were met by Border Patrol agents who herded them back into the murky water.

Viral photos and videos of Border Patrol agents on horseback chasing frightened Haitian people sparked outrage around the world.

After nearly a week of silence on the issue, Congresswoman Maxine Waters stepped in front of cameras on Wednesday to rail against the Biden administration.

Using strong language, Waters said "I'm pissed!". She called out the Biden administration for "taking us back to slavery days."

"I'm unhappy, and I'm not just unhappy with the cowboys who were running down Haitians and using their reins to whip them -- I'm [unhappy] with the [Biden] administration.

"We are following the Trump policy. He is the one that does not follow the Constitution and would not allow those seeking refuge to be able to petition to get into the country.

What the HELL are we doing here?"

Waters addressed Pres. Joe Biden directly.

"We're saying to the president and everybody else: you've got to stop this madness!"

She concluded by urging reporters to "write the story" about the horrific treatment of Black people by the current administration.

"Write the story! Tell the story about what is going on and let people know that they're trying to take us back to slavery days!"

Last week, Fox News host Tucker Carlson dropped exclusive police body cam video that shows Raphael Warnock's then-wife accusing him of running over her foot with his car.

This is headline news because Warnock is one of the 2 Democrats vying for a U.S. Senate seat in the Jan. 5, 2021 runoff against Republican Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler in Georgia.

Ouleye Ndoye, 35, is heard in the video telling police that Warnock, 51, ran over her foot in the driveway of their home. The incident occurred in March. The couple divorced in May.

In the body cam video, Ndoye tearfully tells police Warnock is a great "actor" but he "crossed the line."

"He's like, 'Ouleye, close the door. I'm leaving,'" she tells the officer.

"And I was like, 'just hear me out. If your mom died, and I had the kids. Wouldn't you want me to let them go with you to the funeral? And he just starts backing the car up. He wasn't going fast, I'm not bleeding. But I just can't believe he'd run me over."

Asked whether she thought the pastor drove over her foot intentionally, she replied: "Obviously. I was standing here. The door was open and I'm leaning into the car. How can you drive the car when I'm leaning into it?"

She told the officer she wanted to file a police report for possible criminal charges.

"This man's running for United States Senate, and all he cares about right now is his reputation," she said.

"I've been very quiet about the way that he is for the sake of my kids and his reputation. I've tried to keep the way that he acts under wraps for a long time, and today he crossed the line. So that is what is going on here. And he's a great actor. He is phenomenal at putting on a really good show."

The mainstream media ignored the story because Warnock is a Democrat. But the local news and the conservative news media (which is gaining millions of viewers daily) is all over the story.

Warnock told local outlet WGCL-TV that his ex-wife's allegations are a distraction from his Senate runoff race.

"I'm going to stay focused on my family which includes their mother and I'm going to stay focused on the people of Georgia who during a pandemic are still waiting on relief all these months later while politicians including Kelly Loeffler are busy playing games." Warnock said.

But Sen. Loeffler (R-GA) said voters deserved more than Warnock's deflection from domestic issues.

"Domestic abuse is a serious issue that Georgians deserve answers to as to what exactly happened," she said in a statement. "Unfortunately, it follows a pattern of what we've seen that Raphael Warnock has not answered the hard questions in this campaign."

Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson has obtained a leaked recording of a "shocking" phone conversation between CNN anchor Chris Cuomo and President Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen.

Cuomo is the brother of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who is under investigation by the Justice Department for sending Coronavirus-infected patients into nursing homes, killing thousands or elderly people earlier this year.

"Cohen and the governor’s brother had a pretty shocking conversation," Carlson said on Friday night. "Bottom line, Chris Cuomo is not the person he pretends to be on CNN. And there is more. This is a developing story. We'll have all of it for you next week. Tune in."

Carlson updated his viewers on Monday, saying the recording "raises a number of questions about [Cuomo's] personal behavior off the air."

Carlson said his team sent a copy of the recording to CNN's head of strategic communications Matt Dornic and CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter.

"We haven't heard back yet. We're going to give them tonight to respond, and we're going to update you tomorrow. We hope that they will respond," Carlson said before signing off on Monday.

The FBI seized 12 tapes during a raid on Cohen's New York office in the summer of 2018.

Cohen later pleaded guilty to charges of tax fraud, bank fraud, and campaign finance violations for hush money payments to women who claimed they had sex with Trump before he was elected president.

Kellyanne Conway, who last week announced her resignation as White House counselor, participated in a 32-minute interview with Cuomo in Aug. 2018. She pressed him to discuss what he said on the tape.

"Tons of stuff," Cuomo said before explaining why he wouldn't talk about the tape publicly.

"[Cohen] asked me not to record it, I said, 'I won't.' He said, 'Just to be careful, let me have your phone,' I said, 'Here.' He then said, 'We'll take our phones. I'll put them away.' He did. He then recorded me on a secondary device."

Asked how he felt about being secretly recorded, Cuomo said he believed Cohen's actions were "dishonest" and "a bad thing to do."

Cuomo claimed he had nothing to worry about.

"You know what we talked about in the conversation? I'm not going to tell you, you know why? Because it was off-the-record, and I respect that, even though he did me wrong. That's called integrity," Cuomo said.

Shepard Smith stunned viewers and colleagues on Friday when he announced his resignation from Fox News after 23 years with the network. Smith, 55, addressed his departure at the end of his final show.

"Even in our currently polarized nation, it's my hope that the facts will win the day, that the truth will always matter, that journalism and journalist will thrive."

Smith's resignation hit social media like a mini tornado. The news was welcomed by his detractors who despised Smith's left-leaning bias.

Many on Twitter.com celebrated Smith's resignation, including President Trump.

"I don't know. Is he leaving? That's a shame," Trump joked on the South Lawn of the White House on Friday.

"Is he leaving because of bad ratings?" Trump continued. "If he's leaving, I assume he's leaving because he had bad ratings."

Probably no one was happier to see Smith leave than Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

Smith lashed out at Carlson after Fox legal commentator Judge Andrew Napolitano got into it with Carlson and one of his guests during a live broadcast 2 weeks ago.

Smith thought Carlson should have defended the judge.

"Attacking our colleague who is here to offer legal assessments on our air, in our work home, is repugnant," Smith said during his show the next day.

Later that night, Carlson mocked Smith on the air, repeatedly calling Smith a "daytime host" and never addressing him by name. Carlson ended his rant by taking a jab at Smith's sinking ratings: "When you dress up partisanship as news coverage, people tune out."

While some believe Trump's constant criticism of Smith may have intimidated the anchor to leave, others say Smith was upset about the stinging personal attack by Carlson.

Smith reportedly asked Fox to accept his resignation after only 1 year into his $15 million-a-year contract.

Smith's fans wished him well on Twitter and praised him for keeping his boot on Trump's neck over the past two years. But others thought he was too hypercritical of the president.

Bruce Jenner Diane Sawyer

ABC's much-hyped Bruce "Caitlyn" Jenner reunion interview with Diane Sawyer saw a ratings decline on Friday.

The first 20/20 interview between Jenner and Sawyer in 2015 (when Jenner came out as a cross-dresser) garnered 17.1 million viewers. But Friday's 20/20 special didn't even come close.
