There are some pretty despicable lawmakers in Tennessee, but according to comedian Samantha Bee on “Full Frontal” on Monday, the worst is Republican state Rep. Sheila Butt — who lives up to her namesake.
Butt refused to exempt victims of rape and incest of the 48-hour waiting period before an abortion because she claims that the rape is not “verifiable.” “Right, those crimes are totally unverifiable,” Bee began sarcastically before destroying Butt’s logic. “So we should go with the likeliest assumption that girls are lying whores that just like the prestige of claiming to be raped by their fathers? It’s called Occam’s Razor, libtards!”
It turns out Butt also might be a racist. She tweeted “It’s time for a Council on Christian Relations and an NAAWP in this Country.”
NAAWP, if you didn’t know, stands for the National Association for the Advancement of White People — not to be confused with the Republican Party. Though Bee says it could very easily also stand for the National Association for the Advancement of Walrus Penises and we should “tell your friends that Shelia Butt just looooooves walrus penises. I mean, she does seem to think about sex a lot. In her Christian dating guide Everyday Princess, Daughter of The King, Butt comes down on a 3-year-old who married her two female Barbies, telling her, ‘Girls don’t marry girls. God made girls to marry boys!'”
That’s when Bee took the mockery of Butt to a whole new level. “Look, Sheila, if you don’t believe in homosexuality, you should never have supported a toy line that includes Ken. That guy is young, dumb and hungry for c*m.”
Evidently Butt’s “helpful” book compares a non-virginal woman to a “used stained dress that no one would ever want,” according to Bee. “So, girls, next time you’re tempted to have dirty sinful sex, resist the urge. Instead, do all the stuff Sheila Butt suggests, or as she may call it, ‘Butt Stuff.’ This Tennessee state representative wants you to do lots and lots of Butt stuff. Do Butt stuff until it hurts!”
Bee also makes a plea to viewers to “do some research on your state legislators before you vote for them,” and encouraged people to visit SamanthaBee.com which links to US Elections as a means of looking up information.
Cartoon Chief Justice tells Susan Collins to just quit and ‘go become a lobbyist’ already
Cartoon Chief Justice John Roberts began the latest season of Stephen Colbert's animated show, which began its new season Sunday.
Facing the U.S. Senate, Roberts observed Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) dressed as a mouse.
"Oh no! Mouse in the chamber! Everybody forget this vote and run!" the cartoon senator said.
"Senator Collins, just go be a lobbyist," cartoon Roberts said.
As Roberts explained the rules to the chamber, Collins was then spotted spilling gasoline on the floor.
"Everyone, please remember, this is the United States Senate," Roberts said. "We must not degrade the sacred institution home to Strom Thurmond. Let us comport ourselves with dignity, prudence, and Senator Collins, what are you doing?"
Republican senator admits he didn’t know about Bolton’s confirmation of Trump’s bribery — but still doesn’t care
Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN) still doesn't necessarily believe that President Donald Trump should be convicted, even though former national security adviser John Bolton revealed a first-hand account in his unpublished manuscript.
"Well, didn't know that until a little bit ago," Braun told MSNBC's Kasie Hunt. "I think that's a discussion we'll have have to contend with and it'll be here in a couple of days. When it comes to additional information, I think for many of us -- and I need to cite this because where I'm from, as much as president infuriates maybe half the country, it would be the opposite. And it is a tricky combination like I told Chuck Todd this morning, between using your conscience and having to decide what the people in your state are wanting."
Trump’s aides have given up trying to educate him about Russian hack of the elections: report
President Donald Trump has not only refused to believe that Russia was responsible for the 2016 election hack, he refuses to fact-check Russia's claim that Ukraine was the one behind it.
While Russia has worked diligently to make Ukraine the target, Trump has eagerly consumed and regurgitated the conspiracy theory as a way to accuse former challenger Hillary Clinton of causing all of it. Trump accused cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike of taking the Democratic Party server to Ukraine, a false claim given the server was a cloud-based server, not a physical one. Once it became clear that former Vice President Joe Biden would be one of Trump's potential opponents, the president shifted the conspiracy theory to Biden and his last surviving son, Hunter. Trump claimed that the two were part of a corrupt deal in Ukraine in 2015, while Biden's eldest son was dying of brain cancer.
