‘You’re a spokesmodel not a hit man:’ Dana Loesch roasted for absurd pre-Oscars video

Published

on

Today is a tough day for NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch.

Not only is the unsuccessful actress-turned-NRA-flamethrower home watching the Oscars with the rest of us, she can already feel herself ready to rage at the TV as actors talk about the nation’s avoidable epidemic of gun violence.

Loesch decided to just get out ahead of it, releasing an unhinged screed about “Hollywood phonies” who care about children being killed.

“We’ve had enough of the lies, the sanctimony, the arrogance, the hatred, the pettiness, the fake news,” she says. “So to every lying member of the media, to every Hollywood phony, to the role model athletes who use their free speech to alter and undermine what our flag represents, to the American politics and who would rather let America burn than lose one ounce of their personal power…”

The internet responded with mockery and derision—and with no shortage of references to Loesch’s failed bid to join the “phonies” in Hollywood.

Montel Williams, who served in the armed forces before becoming a successful talk show host, teed off on her: ” I actually bore arms in uniform. Dana poses in cocktail dresses with guns.”

So did a user who identified her as “a failed sitcom wanna be actress” and linked to a story about Loesch’s failed “hot Young Mom” sitcom project.

Others pointed out the likelihood that Loesch is watching tonight’s festivities alone.

Not all gun owners appreciated her rantings.

And many mocked her past gigs.

Montell brought it all home: “Dana – girlfriend stop with the stupid. And don’t make shadowy threats you can’t back up. You’re a spokesmodel not a hit man.”

Pentagon gives senators classified briefing on UFOs reported by the Navy

Published

on

While it might sound like something out of "The X-Files," Navy pilots have been seeing UFOs, and U.S. Senators now want to know what's happening.

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.

Wall Street Journal issues blistering editorial asking Trump what the point is of a second term

Published

on

In a blistering editorial, the Wall Street Journal is asking President Donald Trump what the point of a second term is since he hasn't done anything in his first term.

During his rally in Orlando Tuesday, Trump repeated the same tired lines and same tired policies from 2016. The "Promises Made, Promises Kept" slogan shown over the crowd, yet the supporters didn't understand the irony.

"The most striking fact of his speech was how backward looking it was," the editorial board said. "Every incumbent needs to remind voters of his record, Mr. Trump more than most because the media are so hostile."

‘Crosses a line’: New York Times publisher unleashes on Trump for accusing paper of ‘treason’

Published

on

On Wednesday, New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger wrote a blistering editorial in the Wall Street Journal, saying that President Donald Trump's latest attack on his paper "crosses a line."

First it was the "the failing New York Times." Then "fake news." Then "enemy of the people," wrote Sulzberger. "President Trump's escalating attacks on The New York Times have paralleled his broader barrage on American media. He's gone from misrepresenting our business, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues. Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death.
