A Washington State lawmaker, Republican Brad Klippert, was upset this week after a bill decriminalizing teen sexting passed in the state’s House, the Stranger reports.
“On Monday, a bill that would mostly decriminalize teen sexting passed off the floor of the Washington State House, but not without resistance from Republican Rep. Brad Klippert, who spent a lot of his time screaming about the depravity of anal sex and other acts after legislators rejected his amendment,” the Stranger’s Rich Smith wrote Tuesday.
“Lawmakers ultimately decided that Klippert’s apparent disgust for some sex acts wasn’t enough of a reason to gut the bill,” he continued, adding, “they argued the bill would already make it a misdemeanor for teens to spread around naked photos of other teens.”
Then, after an amendment Klippert wanted was voted down, the lawmaker, who unsuccessfully ran in GOP primaries for the United States Senate both in 2004 and 2006, lost it.
“In order to express his disgust with the many varieties of sex that teens might be having,” the Stranger wrote, “which I guess he thinks the underlying bill would somehow cosign, Klippert read off the list of acts that fall into the state’s definition of ‘sexually explicit conduct’ — these acts include (emphasis his): ‘Actual or simulated sexual intercourse including genital to genital, oral to genital, anal genital [sic], oral, anal….whether between persons of the same or opposite sex or between humans and animals.'”

Vice President Mike Pence was mocked on MSNBC for his unwavering devotion to President Donald Trump.

The host played multiple clips of Pence lavishing praise on Trump.
"Well, it appears to be paying off. Yesterday, amid reports that Trump might swap out for former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley. The president told reporters he’s sticking with his guy," Matthews reported.
Anthony Scaramucci bashes Trump’s ‘word salad’ and ‘entire GOP’ attacking him on Twitter at president’s direction
"What's he doing all day?" asked CNN's Anderson Cooper to former senior adviser Anthony Scaramucci in an interview Monday.
President Donald Trump spent another day attacking the former White House communications director and "the Mooch" said that he's now got "the entire GOP" coming after him on Twitter when they have more important things to do.
"If you look at the style of points, the manifestations of his tweets today, which are constantly in delirium, scaring people and one of the talking points I hear from Republicans, 'Well, it's the economy and we could be going up against a socialist so I'll hold my nose and do this,' but if he's really fully weakened the economy, I think those people will change their minds quickly," Scaramucci predicted.
