WATCH: Iowa man hilariously mocks anti-gay GOP congressman with lawn mower marriage video

Published

on

Last week, Rep. Steve King (R-IA), told an audience at a Mike Huckabee campaign event that the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling means that people can now marry lawn mowers.

Not so.

Iowa Starting Line blogger Pat Rynard decided to give it a try. Dressed in a black tuxedo, Rynard brought his lawn mower, adorned with golden blossoms, out of his garage and hauled it over to the Polk County administration building.

“You see, Steve King last week made big news by saying that because of the new Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage, you can also marry all kinds of things, even your lawn mower,” Rynard said. “So we’re gonna try it out today. I’m very happy about it because I’ve kept this lady hidden away in my garage for a number of years out of shame. But now we can finally express our true love.”

Polk County Recorder Julie Haggerty set the record straight.

“Okay, the answer to that would be no,” she said. “You have to be 18 years old to get a marriage license, and the other party needs to be able to sign a contract, has to have a government ID and has to be able to have a witness that says that they can enter into a contract. So I think on those counts alone, you can’t marry your lawnmower.”

Complications for Rynard include the fact his lawn mower, at 6 or 7 years old, is too young, and he’s already married to a (human) woman.

“So, no marriage with my lawn mower?” he asks before leaving Haggerty’s office.

“No marriage because you’re married, and no marriage with a lawn mower,” she answered. “It’s an inanimate object. You cannot marry a lawn mower.”

“How about a snow blower,” Rynard presses.

Again, rejected.

A heart-broken Rynard then leaves Haggerty’s office.

Rynard isn’t the only one to jump on King’s comments. A Facebook page called “Steve King’s Lawnmower Dating Club” is asking fans to post photos of themselves and their “intended.”

“Let’s show Congressman Steve King that Lawnmower/Human relationships are real!” the page exalts. It’s asking fans to call in to King’s office to express outrage over Rynard being refused a marriage license with his lawn mower.

US foes are goading Trump because they know he’s a ‘blow-hard and full of bluster’: CNN analyst

Published

on

President Donald Trump walked back from the brink of atrocities last week, from calling off a military strike against Iran to pushing back planned Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids in major American cities.

On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin told anchor Wolf Blitzer how foreign adversaries have been emboldened to challenge Trump — because for all his bombast, they know they are calling a bluff.

"I think Donald Trump is pretty well a known quantity at this point," said Toobin. "I mean, I think people around the world know he's a blowhard, knows he's full of bluster. But that's no reason to get into a war."

‘Who are these people?’: Nicolle Wallace baffled by the ‘zombies’ who carry out Trump’s policies

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace was mystified on Monday by how Donald Trump administration officials can morally justify their "horrific" conduct.

"There is a stench," Wallace noted. "Those are the powerful words written to describe the humanitarian crisis at the border now resulting in the suffering of children and infants as the president and his administration concoct a toxic brew of political opportunism and operational incompetence."

"Blockbuster reporting from multiple news organizations drawing our attention to the tragedy unfurling on U.S. soil at the direction of the Trump Administration," she noted.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
