Internet ridicules ‘snowflake’ Devin Nunes for suing parody accounts for ‘extreme pain and suffering’

Published

on

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) was the butt of the joke online Monday, after it was revealed he was suing Twitter and several parody accounts on the social networking site.

The California Congressman was ridiculed as a “snowflake” for claiming the accounts @DevinNunesMom and @DevinCow caused him “extreme pain and suffering.”

Former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti noted that Nunes’ lawsuit probably won’t end well, but in the meantime, he’ll be mocked by more people on Twitter than the two accounts he is suing.

Parody and satire are covered under the First Amendment and slander laws, or President Donald Trump would likely have sued Saturday Night Live long ago. The Nunes Mom account plainly identifies itself as a parody account, complying with the Twitter terms of service. The Cow account does not identify itself as a parody account, though presumably, users know it isn’t real since cows don’t tweet.

It isn’t clear how Nunes will prove “pain and suffering,” because he was still reelected in 2018. The complaint doesn’t talk about any money he’s been forced to spend to protect himself against the parody accounts. It also doesn’t describe if he’s been forced to take anti-depressants or attend therapy to deal with this “extreme pain and suffering.”

What isn’t funny is one of the women behind the account is now going to be forced to fork over hefty sums of cash until the lawsuit is dismissed.

Joseph E diGenova

On Monday, Politico reported that House Democrats, enraged at the White House's blanket use of executive privilege to stonewall all attempts to call witnesses in the investigation of possible obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump, are weighing the idea of calling Trump associates who have never worked in the White House, including former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Trump campaign chairman Corey Lewandowski.

But according to Joseph DiGenova, a former federal prosecutor and Fox News commentator who represented two witnesses in former special counsel Robert Mueller's probe and gives Trump informal legal advice, these witnesses should just "spit in the face" of investigators.

Donald Trump Jr torn to shreds for suggesting his dad has been treated worse than slaves and Native Americans

Published

on

Donald Trump Jr. thinks his father has been treated worse than any human in American history -- including slaves, Native Americans and presidents who have been assassinated while in office.

After President Donald Trump told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos that "there's never been a time in the history of our country where somebody was so mistreated as I have been," Trump Jr. jumped on Twitter to defend his father and simply said that "he's right."

He’s right. https://t.co/ZRlenHkXrq

Trump drowned in ‘heavy metal jokes’ after trying to tag Dem challengers as ‘motley crew’

Published

on

President Donald Trump trotted out a new catchphrase to mock the field of Democratic presidential candidates, but it didn't get quite the reaction he may have hoped.

The president insisted polls looked good for his re-election chances, despite leaked internal polling that says otherwise, and tried to tag his potential 2020 challengers as a "motley crew."

Only Fake Polls show us behind the Motley Crew. We are looking really good, but it is far too early to be focused on that. Much work to do! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
