‘Worse than the Super Bowl and lower scoring’: Internet unloads on stupidity of Trump’s #SOTU

Published

on

The internet was pre-gaming President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address with frustration and annoyance. That was no match for the anger once the speech finally began, however.

Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty recalled the area of the room known as “ass kisser’s alley,” where those who want camera time and a handshake from the president line up. For tonight, count on people like Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) to be at least one of them. It will be curious to see if any of the three members in the so-called “Pariah Caucus” will be among those reaching for a handshake.

Activist Jeff Tiedrich noted that the bar for the president was so low we could hardly look at it:

Others found it a little inappropriate that a president under criminal investigation probably shouldn’t be delivering an address tonight.

Meanwhile, elected women decided to wear white to signify the suffragette movement. The decision was to celebrate the influence women had in the 2018 election.

Trump’s daughter Tiffany also joined in the movement:

Others in advocacy communities did the state of their own union with regard to their issue. The network Logo did one about the state of the LGBTQ union:

Trump officials demanded the Army ‘dig for misconduct’ to justify firing Lt. Col. Vindman

Published

on

This week, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman willingly left the Army after decades of honorable service. He cited a concerted campaign of "bullying" from the highest branches of power in the United States, and now more details are becoming known.

A New Yorker report revealed that top aides to President Donald Trump were told that they needed to find dirt on Vindman that could justify the firing of the decorated war hero.

"Vindman expected to go to the National War College this fall—a low-profile assignment—then take another foreign posting," the New Yorker reported. "But, in a final act of revenge, the White House recently made clear that Trump opposed Vindman’s promotion. Senior Administration officials told [Defense Secretary Mark] Esper and Ryan McCarthy, the Secretary of the Army, to dig for misconduct that would justify blocking Vindman’s promotion. They couldn’t find anything, multiple sources told me. Others in the military chain of command began to warn Vindman that he would never be deployable overseas again—despite his language skills and regional expertise."

George Conway reveals how Mary Trump’s book and the Supreme Court prove the ‘walls are closing in’ on the president

Published

on

Republican lawyer and "Lincoln Project" co-founder, George Conway, wrote in a Washington Post column Thursday that there are a lot of commonalities in Mary Trump's forthcoming tell-all book and the Supreme Court decision passed down in President Donald Trump's case with New York prosecutor Cy Vance.

Mary Trump, who is a clinical psychologist, delivers "professional judgments about the president's indisputable narcissism and, perhaps, sociopathy dovetail with those that other experts have reached before," wrote Conway. "Yet it's not the possible diagnoses that give Mary Trump's book its punch. It's the factual detail — detail that only a family member could provide."

Tennessee Republican says he hasn’t ‘really studied’ whether the Civil War was about slavery

Published

on

On Thursday, The Tennessean's Natalie Allison reported that Tennessee state Rep. Mike Sparks, who makes a habit of complaining that "young people" and "journalists" don't bother to study history, could not answer a basic question about what the Civil War was fought over.

"Was the Civil War about slavery?" asked a reporter.

"I haven't really studied it," said Sparks.

"You said you know history!" said another reporter.

"I just think we need to all study history," said Sparks, still not answering the question. "There's different contexts."

This comes during a debate over whether to remove a bust of Confederate general and suspected Klan leader Nathan Bedford Forrest. Another lawmaker, state Sen. Joey Hensley, defended Forrest, arguing that "3,000 Blacks attended his funeral" — a common but unproven claim of Confederate sympathizers.
