Beck wears condom glove and ‘birth control nose ring’ to mock MSNBC host

Published

on

Looking a bit like a homeless re-imagining of horror movie icon Freddy Krueger, right-wing conspiracy theorist Glenn Beck appeared on his Blaze TV Internet show Monday sporting a beard, rolling condoms onto his fingers and taping a birth control pill to his nose in an apparent effort to mock MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry.

On her weekend show, Harris-Perry wore a pair of tampons as earrings to make a point about officials at the Texas Capitol who began confiscating feminine hygiene products from protesters as Republicans pushed the acrimonious abortion debate to a close in the recent special session.

Beck explained Monday that if the MSNBC host were wearing the odd earrings in public, “I might be attracted to you.” He said that’s because they look “kind of like marshmallows,” not stopping to explain why marshmallow earrings would cause him to become aroused. “From a distance you’d be like, ‘She has marshmallow earrings. She is trolling for me!'”

Beck’s co-hosts didn’t quite get his schtick. “It just looks like you’re rolling condoms onto your fingers,” one of them said. “Is this for reproductive rights?”

“I’m with her, I’m with her,” Beck replied before taping a birth control pill to his nostril and calling it a nose ring. “I’m in Texas. She is wearing tampon earrings, I’m wearing condom gloves. I just want to make the point that abortion is murder, and if you’re looking to control reproductive organs, there are other things you can do.”

“Melissa, you don’t look like an idiot — nor do I,” he concluded. “And Melissa, you look as credible as I do.”

Republicans likely to block ‘background checks’ after Trump’s abrupt reversal: report

Published

on

After two mass shootings over one weekend, President Donald Trump signaled that he would be open to strengthening background checks.

He promptly dropped his resolve to sign gun regulations one week later when he said that there were already strong background checks on the books.

With the president's apparent reversal, Republicans in Congress also appear to be abandoning legislation, reports Politico.

“I really don’t see the dynamic having really changed there much,” Senate Homeland Security Chairman Ron Johnson told Politico. “I don’t anticipate we’re going to pass a federal red flag law."

‘Megalomaniacal, paranoid, and psychopathic’: Economist sounds the alarm on Trump’s ‘bottomless malevolence’

Published

on

Economist Jeffrey Sachs, a professor of Health Policy and Management at Columbia University, has written a frightening warning about President Donald Trump's "paranoid and psychopathic" leadership style, and he says it could have disastrous consequences for the world if he wins a second term.

In an essay published at progressive news website Common Dreams, Sachs argues that it would be a grave mistake to treat Trump like a cynical politician, when in reality he is an impulsive and vindictive narcissist who acts on his angry whims.

Trump baselessly accuses Democratic lawmaker of ‘violence’?? in insane tweet

Published

on

President Donald Trump, in a strangely giddy and unhinged tweet on Tuesday baselessly accused Democratic U.S. Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib of “violence.”

“Sorry, I don’t buy Rep. Tlaib’s tears. I have watched her violence, craziness and, most importantly, WORDS, for far too long,” Trump tweeted. “Now tears? She hates Israel and all Jewish people. She is an anti-Semite. She and her 3 friends are the new face of the Democrat Party. Live with it!”

It’s unclear what the president was referring to when he accused the Michigan Congresswoman of violence, but his other remarks appear to be directed at a press conference she held Monday.
