Internet explodes at Olympics doc Larry Nassar’s letter blaming ‘scorned’ women for his downfall

Published

on

Larry Nassar, the disgraced former USA Gymnastics team doctor who has pleaded guilty to molesting seven girls and has been accused of molesting dozens more, was sentenced on Wednesday to 175 years in prison.

During his sentencing, Ingham County Circuit Court Judge Rosemarie Aquilina read the court a letter that Nassar wrote in which he took no responsibility for his actions and instead cast blame on his accusers, whom he said were not grateful for the treatments they received.

“Those patients that are now speaking out are the same ones that praised and came back over and over,” Nassar wrote. “The media convinced them that everything I did was wrong and bad. They feel I broke their trust. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.”

As the judge read the line about “scorned” women, the entire courtroom audibly gasped.

And they weren’t the only ones, as Twitter users reacted furiously at Nassar’s attempt to shift blame to victims. Check out the top reactions below.

On Wednesday, following Trump's virtually incomprehensible rant on Fox Business about how Twitter is secretly stifling his content, conservative lawyer George Conway posted a scathing rebuke of his behavior:

George Conway, the husband of Trump's former campaign manager and counselor Kellyanne Conway, has been a frequent and vocal critic of the president's behavior.

Republicans have increasingly scapegoated an imagined political conspiracy of social media companies for every problem that they have online, claiming that there is a plot to censor or "shadow ban" conservative content.

This is how Florida Republicans plan to hand the election to Trump in 2020

Published

on

In 2018, voters in Florida passed Amendment 4, restoring voting rights to ex-felons. The measure passed 65 to 35 percent.

Now, Florida Governor and major Trump ally Ron DeSantis is expected to blunt the impact of the measure by approving a bill that would require ex-felons to have paid off all fees connected to their sentence before voting. That means Donald Trump might get a major boost in 2020, reports the Daily Beast.

SB 7066 requires ex-felons to pay off all financial obligations from their sentencing or get them excused by a judge.
