Strzok hearing Democrat brutally trolls GOP by reading into the record comments they made ripping Trump

Published

on

Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) made a mockery of the House hearing on the disparaging comments FBI agent Peter Strzok made about now-President Donald Trump before the election by reading into the record statements made by members of Congress who expressed similar worries about Trump as a candidate.

Following an interrogation by House Rep. Darrell Issa (CA) who asked Strzok to read some of the comments he made about Trump — including calling the president a “douche” —  Connolly compared the hearing to a “Russian political assault trial.”

“It’s got all the trappings,” Connolly continued. “Character assassination, demagoguery, connecting dots, generalizing from an isolated incident, cherry-picking facts, sometimes fabricating facts. It’s astounding and a new low in the United States Congress.”

Noting that Strzok is under attack specifically for the comments, Connolly read off a series of quotes, after which he asked the FBI agent if they were his words. In every case they were the words of a Republican.

“‘My wife Julia and I, we have a 15-year-old daughter. Do you think I can look her in the eye and tell her I endorsed Donald Trump when he acts like this and his apology? That was no apology. That was an apology for getting caught. I can’t tell the good people in my state that I endorse add person that acts like this,'” read Connolly. “Was that you, Mr. Strzok?”

“No it was not,”the FBI man replied.

“It was Republican, [retired Congressman] Jason Chaffetz,” Connolly shot back.

“Did you write the following. ‘For the good of the country and to give the Republicans a chance after defeating Hillary Clinton, Mr. Trump should step aside. His defeat seems almost certain. Four years of Hillary Clinton is not what is best for this country.’ That’s you, right?” he was asked.

“No,” he recalled.

“No it was the congressman from Colorado [Rep. Mike Coffman (R)],” Connolly explained.

And it went on like that for the rest of his question period.

He’ll ‘rot in prison’: At least one House Dem has bigger plans for Trump than impeachment

Published

on

An increasing number of Democrats have come out in favor of beginning an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump's actions in recent days. But Rep. Fre?derica Wilson of Florida bucked that trend on Monday by coming out specifically against impeachment, warning it would have negative consequences.

However, she made clear she wasn't opposed to impeachment because she's a fan of Trump or thinks his conduct isn't condemnable. In a tweet featuring an antagonizing and absurd meme, Wilson explained that she feared Trump would benefit from an impeachment push:

Trump supporters are furious that knitting website Ravelry took a stand on white supremacy

Published

By

When you think of the knitting community, you might envision an elderly woman, sitting on a rocking chair in front of a fire with a pair of large knitting needles. In truth, the knitting and crocheting demographic has changed drastically in the twenty-first century, becoming younger, hipper, and increasingly tied to DIY culture.

Ravelry is a website where both millennials and knitting grannies (among other demographics) meet to talk about knitting, crocheting, weaving, and other craft and fabric arts. But if you plan to crochet a MAGA hat or knit a Trump sweater, think twice about posting it on Ravelry. The forum-style website, which is often described as "Facebook for knitters," recently issued a statement that they would ban open support of Donald Trump on their site. The widely-publicized move suggests that even communities that aren’t seen as specifically political — like knitters — are becoming politicized, sometimes in toxic ways, in an epoch of extreme political polarization in the United States.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
