A state senator from Indiana has deleted a meme he posted on Facebook over the weekend that made fun of “fat women” who attended this past weekend’s Women’s Marches across the country.

Per USA Today, Indiana State Sen. Jack Sandlin faced instant backlash after he posted a meme on his Facebook page that showed a photo of the Women’s March with the caption, “In one day Trump got more fat women out walking than Michelle Obama did in 8 years.”

Social media users quickly flooded Sandlin’s page with angry comments, and the senator deleted the post from his page late last night — and then claimed that he wasn’t the one who posted it on his own account.

“Not sure how that ended up on my Facebook wall but that certainly does not reflect my opinion of women,” he wrote. “People who know me will know that’s not my view.”

Nonetheless, Facebook users are still hammering Sandlin with angry messages about the sexist meme that was posted on his page.

“You should be ASHAMED of yourself for your comment about FAT WOMEN,” wrote one user on Sandlin’s Facebook page. “What and INSULTING and DEMEANING thing to post.”

“As Indiana women we’re going to make sure you never get another leadership position in this country,” wrote another. “I don’t understand this meanness. I look at you and your sister and the way you talk to people and I don’t understand it.”

“You and Donald Trump are exactly the reason we marched in Washington yesterday,” wrote a third.

‘Comparing yourself to terrorists?’ Internet cracks up at Trump saying dead 9-11 hijackers got more justice than him

Published

on

President Donald Trump quoted Fox News host Mark Levin that left many scratching their heads. Levin, who has a show on Sunday evenings, claimed that the terrorists from Sept. 11 got more due process than the president.

The claim was a curious one because, as many on Twitter noted, it's not often that the president of the United States compares himself to a terrorist. Secondly, the 9-11 hijackers all died in the attack, as they were on the planes that crashed into the buildings and into a Pennsylvania field.

Trump is known to quote Levin frequently, though the citations often make the president look worse.

"We also realize that the problems of racial injustice and economic injustice cannot be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power."

—Martin Luther King Jr., 1967

This Martin Luther King Jr. Day comes as moderate Democrats, falling in line behind former vice president Joe Biden, are warning that the party risks re-electing Donald Trump if it nominates too radical a candidate for president — by which they mean someone like Senators Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.

Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe catches Alan Dershowitz in humiliating hypocrisy: ‘He’s not to be trusted’

Published

on

Harvard Constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe called out President Donald Trump's lawyer, Alan Dershowitz, Sunday on Twitter, noting that his opinions seem to evolve depending on who he's defending.

Dershowitz is on a kind of press junket for the president, defending him in various media appearances. The former lawyer to Jeffrey Epstein is handling Trump's defense as it pertains to the abuse of power. Dershowitz thinks that charge has no basis in law. In fact, impeachment trials aren't actually legal proceedings, they're political proceedings, because the Justice Department claimed that Trump can't be indicted under the law while he's president.
