‘Run away like a coward’: Paul Ryan flees Congress — and the internet erupts in joyful mockery

Published

on

Donald Trump threatened to start a war this morning, a possible attempt to distract from the fact that investigators raided the offices of his personal attorney on Monday and likely have a whole boatload of new evidence against him.

Turns out, maybe he didn’t need to start a new war. At the same time Trump was warning Russia of his plans to shoot missiles at Syria’s despotic leadership, Paul Ryan united the nation in a rare moment of joy when news broke that he is “retiring” at age 48. The fiscal arch-conservative will have completed 20 years of service with the federal government and will get his full pension starting at age 50.

The Republican speaker of the house is loathed by both Democrats and #MAGA Republicans and has been ineffective at corralling the anarchist Tea Party wing of his own party. Which is why Ryan is getting whacked from the left and right on Twitter.

“The organizers aren’t at all bothered that a gun circle jerk in Richmond, VA on #MLKDay has a Klan-rally smell to it?" Wright tweeted. "Wonder why."

‘Dead wrong’: House Dems release scathing rebuttal to White House’s widely panned legal brief

Published

on

The Trump White House's latest defense of the president ahead of his impending impeachment trial has been widely panned, and has even sparked speculation that Trump himself had a hand in writing it due to its low-grade legal analysis.

A legal brief filed by President Donald Trump's lawyers late last week called impeachment proceedings "constitutionally invalid," even though impeachment is literally a part of the Constitution, and also accused Democrats of engaging in a "brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election," even though Vice President Mike Pence would take over in the event that Trump was removed by the Senate.
