Conservatives lose it after Christian Bale thanks Satan for ‘inspiring’ him to play Dick Cheney

Published

on

Actor Christian Bale accepted the Golden Globe award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for his role in the film “Vice.”

Bale plays former Vice President Dick Cheney in a story that details the unique role he had in George W. Bush’s White House.

According to Rotten Tomatoes, “Bale’s transformation is a sight to behold.” He donned prosthetics to achieve some of the key characteristics of Cheney, but capturing the so-called “evil” of Cheney was all Bale.

“Thank you Satan for the inspiration,” Bale said about the biographical drama-comedy role.

He then offered a challenge to other actors, saying it was a kind of “competition.”

“I will be cornering the market on charisma-free assh*les,” he said. “What do you think, Mitch McConnell next? That would be good, wouldn’t it?”

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) tweeted an article about Bale’s trouble with the law and an alleged assault on a woman and her mother. Cheney said that Satan probably inspired him to do that too.

It isn’t surprising that conservatives lost their minds over the knock over the former vice president.

Naturally, the Church of Satan also responded with their own statement:

How Trump supporters justify supporting the president in the full knowledge that he’s a criminal

Published

on

It’s been nearly two months since Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump, and Republicans still haven’t figured out a way to justify their predetermined conclusion: Trump is innocent. Their problem, of course, is the overwhelming evidence that Trump personally conducted an extortion and bribery scheme against Ukraine’s political leadership. As the record clearly shows, he threatened to withhold military aid and promised a White House visit in order to strong-arm President Volodymyr Zelensky into backing Trump’s false accusations against former Vice President Joe Biden and Democratic Party leaders.

Rep Mark Meadows has been the White House ‘sherpa’ on impeachment — and may be next chief of staff: report

Published

on

Mick Mulvaney, the director of the Office of Management and Budget who also works as the acting White House chief of staff, is struggling in his job as the impeachment inquiry moves to the public hearings phase.

"Mick Mulvaney is isolated, marginalized and growing more irrelevant to the West Wing staff he’s meant to lead during one of the most consequential moments of the Trump presidency," Politico reported.

Mulvaney is increasingly out of the loop on impeachment.

"Though the White House’s acting chief of staff is still participating in impeachment meetings and working out of the White House, the strategy is increasingly being driven by White House lawyers, legislative affairs team and top officials from the press and communications shops who spent the week setting up a rapid-response team and developing plans to push back on witnesses’ testimony in real-time," Politico reported. "It’s an awkward staff situation that mirrors so many moments of the Trump presidency: aides trying to proceed with business as usual while unusual dramas play out, and the very people expected to lead the effort instead witnessing jockeying by potential replacements."

Republicans asked for a witness to undermine impeachment — but she wants to call their ‘bluff’

Published

on

Devin Nunes

Since Republicans have no substantive defense of President Donald Trump’s effort to extort political investigations out of the Ukrainian government, their big hope in protecting the White House from the impeachment inquiry relies on kicking up enough dirt and throwing up red herrings to distract voters and keep Republicans united.

As part of this effort, House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA) proposed nine witnesses from the GOP side for the forthcoming impeachment hearings, many of whom aren’t relevant to the central questions of the inquiry.

One of those names is likely unknown the vast majority of the American public: Democratic National Committee consultant Alexandra Chalupa. But Politico revealed Tuesday with a new interview that Chalupa is actually willing to testify — and wants to call the Republicans’ “bluff.”
