Devin Nunes

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) has been involved in several lawsuits against his antagonists.

In 2019, Nunes launched lawsuits against two fake Twitter accounts and his hometown newspaper The Fresno Bee. The lawsuit against the fake Twitter accounts, @DevinCow and Nunes’ Mom, described themselves as parody accounts, which is not only allowed on Twitter, it’s prized by comedy lovers everywhere.

His lawsuit against The Fresno Bee, by contrast, alleges their report about his link to a winery that hosted a fundraiser with cocaine and underage prostitutes.

Republican operative Liz Mair is part of the suit, with Nunes demanding documents from her, alleging that she is somehow involved in the parody accounts.

In a hilarious twist, Mair tweeted Wednesday that Nunes is now begging her for campaign donations after using Ted Cruz’s campaign email list.

“Also, I love that this guy’s trying to raise $$ from me while suing me for $400M,” Mair said.

Watch how the BBC reports on ‘the reality’ in the United States during COVID-19 crisis

Published

on

The British Broadcasting Corporation is reporting on the "frantic and on-the-edge" situation in an intensive care unit in New York City.

The BBC had footage from CBS News, which was allowed in the ICU.

"Though the administration says there's no shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), the reality is otherwise," the BBC noted.

A front-line worker wearing a garbage bag "wished" she had the same PPE as the reporter.

"It's very, very difficult, it's like something out of 'The Twilight Zone,'" she said.

"And I don't think any of us going through it will ever be the same," she added.
