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.

Published

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell suggested to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday that presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden could "damage" his campaign by holding a virtual convention speech.

Mitchell made the remark after President Donald Trump said that he was considering holding his convention speech at the White House.

"Joe Biden is not going to Milwaukee," Mitchell told Pelosi. "How much does this damage the campaign?"

Pelosi disagreed by insisting that Democrats will hold a "great convention."

Mitchell then asked about Trump's plan to hold his convention speech at the White House.

Trump’s psychiatric disturbance could destroy democracy if he wins a second term: clinical psychologist

Published

I’m not being hyperbolic or melodramatic when I say that democracy itself is on the line on November 3. Donald Trump has been on a mission to subvert our democracy and to push it toward an autocracy. No president has ever disavowed democracy like Trump. No president has ever wanted to change our democratic way of life like Trump.

Trump has shown little interest or intent in following our Constitution. He is not abiding by the emoluments clause. He breaks norms and rules at will. He does not recognize that the three branches of government are co-equal. He operates as if the executive branch has total power. Our democracy is not based on the executive branch having absolute power. It requires that the three branches have separate powers in a check-and-balances system. Trump impugns democracy because it limits his power and requires him to be held accountable.
