Internet ruthlessly mocks Roy Moore for tweeting ‘threat’ that happens to reference classic teen rom-com ‘Bring It On’

Published

Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore just can’t stop losing.

On Wednesday evening, apparently responding to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s calls for him to drop out of the race, Moore told the Kentucky Republican to “bring. it. on.”

Soon after, however, Twitter noticed that Moore’s “threat” just happened to share a title with a 2000 teen comedy film about a rivalry between cheer squads at neighboring white and black high schools.

Given that an eighth and a ninth woman came forward to allege that Moore made unwanted and repeated advances on them a few hours before — and that one said the then-30-year-old attorney called her at her high school after she turned him down once — Twitter had a lot to say about it.

“Hey, maybe tweeting the name of a movie about high school cheerleaders isn’t your best move right now, slick,” sports journalist Jesse Spector tweeted in response.

“Not the movie reference I would have chosen, given the circumstances,” University of Washington law professor David Ziff quipped, “but okay.”

CNN’s Kasie Hunt added subtlety to the sh*tshow, tweeting a link to Moore’s threat to actresses Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku and Gabrielle Union, the film’s stars.

Gun ownership increases homicides — but only a very specific kind of them: study

Published

on

Does the frequency of gun ownership impact the homicide rate? In the broad sense, many studies have shown it does. But how does it do so exactly?

A new study, conducted at the University of Indianapolis and published in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine, offers a profound hint. The study, which examined homicide rates by state from 1990 to 2016, suggests that most forms of homicide — those committed against friends, acquaintances, and strangers — are negligibly affected by firearm ownership rates. But one particular category of homicide is sharply correlated with the presence of guns: domestic violence.

Conservatives are furious over Trump’s budget deal with Democrats — president brags about ‘real compromise’

Nancy Pelosi clap

House conservatives are livid after President Donald Trump struck a budget deal with Democrats.

"You should veto this bill because it is fiscally irresponsible," the lawmakers wrote in a letter to Trump. "It blows well beyond what was intended with the 2011 [Budget Control Act] caps. Furthermore, it continues spending hundreds of billions more than what we take in a year and does not put our nation on a path towards a balanced budget."

The effort is being driven by first-term Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX).

"As the greatest nation in the history of the world, the least we can do is cut a deal that does not sabotage the fiscal future of our nation while endangering millions of American and migrants because of our porous border," the lawmakers wrote. "We can do better."
