Diaper-fetishizing Republican David Vitter probably regrets sarcastic tweet against same-sex marriage

Published

Twitter does not forget.

That’s what Senator David Vitter (R-Louisiana) learned the hard way when he lashed out at the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling Friday with this tweet:

The Supreme Court effectively legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states by ruling 5-4 that state bans on it are unconstitutional.

Within 10 minutes, Vitter was reminded by journalist Sam Knight that those in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

Vitter admitted to being a client for so-called “D.C. Madame” Deborah Jeane Palfrey in 2007, The Week reports. Facing prison time, Palfrey committed suicide while Vitter skipped along to win re-election.

In February that year, Vitter was also linked to a brothel in Louisiana, Fox News reported.

Vitter’s presentation of himself as a family values Republican is shaken by statements from Jeanette Maier, who Fox News quoted as saying Vitter was a Canal Street brothel client.

She said things between Vitter and his wife didn’t seem to be a Cleaver-esque picture of traditional family bliss.

“It wasn’t all about sex,” she told the Associated Press. “In fact, he just wanted to have somebody listen to him, you know. And I said his wife must not be listening,”

Adding an additional layer of salaciousness, Larry Flynt took credit for outing Vitter with an investigative report in his magazine, Hustler, CNN reports.

Twitter users were quick to pile on Vitter after his tweet, with one recalling that part of the allegations include him wanting prostitutes to make him wear diapers, according to Wonkette:

President Donald Trump attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from the White House on Tuesday.

As impeachment testimony was underway in the House, Trump told reporters in a Cabinet meeting that Pelosi is "grossly incompetent."

The president also said that Republicans are "killing it" in the impeachment hearings.

But Trump took a shot at Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, an expert on Ukraine who was testifying at the time.

"I don't know him. ... I never saw the man," he said. "I understand now he wears his uniform when he goes in. No, I don't know Vindman at all. What I do know is that even he said that the transcript was correct."

The president's eldest son posted a link to a Federalist article suggesting Vindman is not a dedicated military officer and public servant, a line of questioning which Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) also pursued during an impeachment hearing.

"Let’s Stop Pretending Every Impeachment Witness Is A Selfless Hero," Trump Jr. tweeted, quoting the piece's headline.

‘I’m an American’: Lt Col Vindman laughs off GOP counsel’s attempts to question his loyalty

Published

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman laughed off questions about an offer by a Ukrainian official to serve as that country's defense minister.

The Soviet-born Vindman, who emigrated to the U.S. as a child and later served in the Iraq War, agreed that a Ukrainian official had offered him the government position three times during an official visit for the inauguration of the country's new president, Volodymyr Zelensky.

"I don't know (why the position was offered), but every single time I dismissed it," Vindman said. "Upon returning I notified my chain of command and the appropriate counter-intelligence folks about the offer."
