Houston’s lesbian ex-mayor hilariously shuts down Ann Coulter tweet blaming her for Hurricane Harvey

Published

on

Right-wing provocateur — and increasingly poorly selling author — Ann Coulter is having to result to cruder and more stupefyingly hateful antics to get attention.

The blonde hate-monger market has been saturated in recent years by arrivistes like Tomi Lahren and reliably pro-Trump automatons like Kellyanne Conway who will go on TV and spout any talking point, no matter how foul, false or wrong-headed.

Coulter has been in particularly glum spirits as President Donald Trump’s administration has proven to be incompetent, slow-moving and self-sabotaging since Inauguration Day. When she isn’t having a meltdown about having to swap seats on a Delta flight or raging that tax cuts for the wealthy are old hat when there’s a wall to build, Coulter has apparently been wracking her brain to squeeze out the most hair-on-fire hot take about Hurricane Harvey that she possibly could.

And she did, writing, “I don’t believe Hurricane Harvey is God’s punishment for Houston electing a lesbian mayor. But that is more credible than ‘climate change.'”

Fortunately, rather than waste time trying to confront Coulter’s brand of purblind, right-wing trollery with facts, Houston’s former Mayor Annise Parker took it in stride, joking, “Darn it, I thought no one knew I had a super power over weather.”

Touché, and well done Madam Mayor.

Overall, the transcripts for depositions of Catherine Croft and Christopher Anderson, who were advisers to U.S. envoy Kurt Volker, built on the story of that we already know: that President Donald Trump pushed a shadow foreign policy to pressure Ukraine into investigating his political opponents, a scheme that involved using his office and military aid as leverage over the country in opposition to the official policy.

Trump blasted for his ‘Endorsement of Doom’ after Sean Spicer loses on ‘Dancing with the Stars’

Published

on

Team Trump had gone all in urging supporters to vote for former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the game show "Dancing with the Stars."

Votes had been urged by RNC officials and Trump himself had urged his 66 million Twitter followers to vote for Spicer.

Despite the full heft of the Trump campaign, Spicer lost on Monday's show.

Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.

Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!

‘He’s misunderstood’: Nikki Haley tells Fox News how Trump is actually a really good listener

Published

on

Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.

Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."

"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.

"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.

She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
