Here are 7 of the most sexist and racist Halloween costumes in 2018

Published

Halloween will soon be upon us, and as such, people will soon be coming out of the woodwork to dress up in run-of-the-mill racist and sexist costumes.

Amid a sea of white people dressing up as Pocahontas and Trayvon Martin are the uniquely-2018 costumes that attempt to take on pop culture in politics in offensive ways.

Trump’s border wall

For the Make America Great Again crowd, Amazon sells the “Trump Mexico Will Pay Zip up Costume Jumpsuit.” Created by the Costume Agent company, this 90 percent Nylon jumpsuit is unisex and comes with a caveat:

This costume is political satire referencing Donald Trump during his political campaign. It is not meant to offend anyone. This costume was originally created for Krewe du Vieux Carré.

That message appears to have missed some of the product reviewers, one of whom claimed they were going to buy four of them because they “can’t wait to see the looks on all the liberal’s faces at the Halloween party!”

Stormy Daniels

While there will invariably be people dressing up as former Playboy model-turned-Trump-mistress Stormy Daniels for Halloween, the lingerie company Yandy took it to a new level when they included not only an overblown cleavage insert in it’s “Cloudy Affair Costume,” but also an illustration of a mushroom.

Yandy noted that neither the blonde wig nor the mushroom — an infamous reference to the president’s genitalia — comes with the costume.

Brett Kavanaugh

Dressing up like newly-confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh would be both simple and topical given how ubiquitous the Trump appointee accused of sexually assaulting multiple women as a teen became in the past few months. With the context of alcohol-laden college parties, however, it also would be one of the most offensive costumes to wear in 2018.

A sexual assault pun

Though the “Dr. Howie Feltersnatch” gynecologist costume has been for sale for years, it takes new meaning in 2018 as the #MeToo movement rings in its first year. Given the prominence of the Larry Nassar story, Halloween partiers should think twice before donning that fake physician’s coat.

Sexy Border Patrol agent

The Dreamgirl Agent Norma Swall” costume takes the unique distinction of being both racist and sexist. As a “sexy” Border Patrol agent, a woman can both be objectified and representative of an agency tasked with increasingly brutal immigration enforcement policies.

Saudi royal

While variations of “Arab,” “Saudi” and “Sheik” have long been a preferred costume of the culturally insensitive, dressing as a member of the Saudi royal family this Halloween takes on an additional layer of cruelty in light of the likely murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Honorable mention: Sexy Handmaid

Yandy’s “Brave Red Maiden” costume — a “sexy” version of the uniforms worn by the oppressed women of The Handmaid’s Tale — was so thoroughly-covered that it was both removed from the lingerie-selling website and is now nearly impossible to find for sale online. Nonetheless, it perfectly exemplified the ubiquitous “sexy”-fication of women’s Halloween costumes.

House Republicans have 3 key defenses of Trump’s Ukraine extortion campaign — and they’re all terrible

Published

on

To any halfway objective observer, the first day of public hearings in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, which are ongoing as of this writing, have not gone well for Trump’s defenders.

Bill Taylor, the top US ambassador in Kyiv, and veteran State Department official George Kent came off as principled and non-partisan as they delivered damning testimony about the Trump regime’s multifaceted campaign to coerce the Ukrainian government to announce an investigation into fringe right-wing conspiracy theories designed to deflect blame for interfering in the 2016 election from Russia and onto Ukraine.

Progressives hilariously ridicule Donald Trump Jr.’s new book with their own Trump triggers #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr

Published

on

President Donald Trump's eldest child and namesake has published a book about liberals he says are "triggered" by conservatives. Ironically, it seems Donald Trump Jr. is the one who seems to be triggered by the reception he's getting from some on his book tour.

The hashtag, #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr has nothing to do with Jr's new book, rather it's progressives using his book title to mock the Trump child. Internet users were torn between mocking the young Trump for desperately trying to get his father's attention, scrambling to seem relevant, trying to launch his own political career, trying to make his own money and so much more.

‘Blather and hysteria’: Conservative columnist explains why GOP anti-impeachment ‘antics’ just crashed and burned

Published

devin nunes defeat

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Rep. Devin Nunes of California and other House Republicans were clearly trying to rally the Trumpian base on Wednesday, when the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump offered its first public testimony. Jordan and Nunes aggressively tried to discredit the inquiry and the two witnesses who testified: diplomat William B. Taylor (U.S. ambassador to Ukraine) and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George P. Kent. But conservative Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin, in a Wednesday column, stressed that House Republicans — for all their “antics and conspiracy theories” — failed to show why Trump shouldn’t be impeached, while House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and other House Democrats showed why he should.
