After another long week in what continues to be the most heinous use of power in our country’s recent history it is often easier to focus on the negative. I prefer not to think of it this way. Instead we will not be focusing on the negative within this blog, but rather we will be directing our inner most anger towards those causing the negativity and hoping that it makes us feel better. Enjoy!
This twitter account has been more productive than any grassroots efforts that I have seen in terms of stifling hate-speech and stripping websites such as Breitbart of huge amounts of advertising dollars. By building a large following of volunteers who merely show companies the headlines their ads are appearing next to, this movement has stoked a lot of anger from the alt-right racist corners of the internet. Not to worry, Sleeping Giants continues to fight the good fight against racism, and for that we say, hats off!
We all know who she is. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, the boss from New York who has arrived on the scene with a big middle finger to all anti-women, racists, and corporate apologist politicians. These are the reasons us progressives love her on top of the fact that she is fighting for our healthcare, long-term economy, and social security.
Well, this weekend she gave us one more reason to love her. After our favorite piece of absolute shit Charlie Kirk attempted to attack her for the clothes she wore in a magazine shoot AOC dribbled down the lane and jumped from the free throw line before throwing down on Trumps favorite pet in a manner that quite frankly got me more excited than any tweet I can remember. Bravo, AOC. You rock.
Brett Kavanagh Nomination Process:
Is it a testament to how truly lost the republican party is that I can hear about how a judge, who is up for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, has been accused of sexual misconduct and my first words are, “that won’t matter.”. This is where we are at with a party only interested in gathering the most possible power that they can before departing public service and taking baths in $100 bills. I mean seriously, Chuck Grassley, can you please just go home and spend your last few summers letting everyone else decide what is best for the future of our nation?
Anyways, it is not looking good for us Democrats in this nomination process as Susan Collins is still the fraud she claims not to be and Lisa Murkowski seems to have clearly forgotten about all her voters. Not to mention the big bad trio of Jeff Flake, Bob Corker, and Ben Sasse whom all seem to think their seats in the Senate are merely for spectating the nominations as opposed to maybe checking the power of our moron in chief. Stay tuned in this fight if you enjoy the feeling of inevitable disappointment.
So, it was just another day in the nations capitol. The wind was blowing as Fall moves in on all of us much slower than usual while republican politicians deny climate change. You know, just another day. And then, would you look at that? The president has accused Democrats of faking the deaths of 3,000 Puerto Ricans all because he has the maturity level of a 2nd grader and cannot stand the thought of being blamed for his own incompetence. Thank god for those checks and balances in Congress! Paul Ryan what will you do about this disaster that left more dead than the 9/11 attacks on our nation? Will you hold hearings to try and get to the bottom of why our response was so inadequate that it took nearly a year to regain power in this territory? NO!
Instead Paul Ryan did the brave deed of saying that no person is to blame for this terrible thing that happened to an “isolated” island that we just happen to own. Well shucks, Paul Ryan, that’s too bad. I guess its cool if you just go back to gutting social security and Medicare because we need to produce record military spending! Good lord. This man has the political courage of a piece of gum on the street and seems to think that inaction is the only thing we are capable of when it comes to guns and disasters. Paul Ryan, you have protected this President more so than nearly anyone else. Your name will go down on the wrong side of history as someone who enabled the worst administration of this century with your tail tucked between your legs.
Last but not least, we have the pathetic spawn of a pathetic man who has for some reason began to think he is qualified to speak publicly on issues facing our nation. For god sake, we already have to deal with Don Jr (the man with more hair grease than John Stamos in Full House), Ivanka and her evil husband Jared (who increasingly remind me of the couple in Tommy Boy who try to destroy Callahan Auto Parts), and now we have to listen to Eric Trump. He started off the week hot by using anti-semitic language in an interview on Fox News and riling up the rest of us who, you know, are not anti-semitic. Did daddy have any condemnation for such language his son was-… I’m not even gonna bother finishing that question.
Next, Eric decided he would go on an interview conducted on the Fox radio network (Fox sure loves talking to Trump’s, huh?) and tout lies about how well his fathers economy was doing. In the middle of his claims that Obama never came close to 4% GDP in a quarter, Eric Trump was interrupted to the tune of something like, “Hey dude, you aren’t telling the truth”. At this point he was shown statistics that proved his gutless lying. Oh, how I wish I could have seen his face as he was being corrected. Just to watch the humiliation would have been so sweet. I can picture him afterwards feeling awfully down about himself, but making himself feel better by depositing A million dollars of daddy’s money into his bank account and checking white nationalist reddit pages.
That wraps up this weeks roundup of “Who’s Hot and Who’s Not”. Check back next Saturday for more rants about moron republicans.
