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:

Published

Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) hilariously mocked former press secretary Ari Fleischer, who worked for former President George W. Bush's White House. Fleischer claimed Black people won't be that excited about Sen. Kamala Harris on the ticket.

"She's just not that historically exciting to African-Americans," said Fleischer speaking to Laura Ingraham during a Fox News appearance after the announcement.

During a conversation with MSNBC's Joy Reid, the host called Fleischer "a sort of a bygone era Republican voice" and asked Bass to listen to his comments.

"I wonder how many African-Americans," asked Bass, chuckling.
