‘Congrats on an epic self-own’: Internet bursts into laughter as Ted Cruz freaks out over vasectomy bill

Published

on

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was the subject of criticism this weekend when he commented on a news story surrounding an Alabama Democrat’s bill that would “mandate every Alabama man to undergo a vasectomy within one month of his 50th birthday or the birth of his third biological child, whichever comes first.”

State Rep. Rolanda Hollis (D-Birmingham) put forth the bill in response to the fact that there’s “no restrictions on the reproductive rights of men” under existing state law.

“Yikes,” Cruz tweeted while sharing a link to the story. “A government big enough to give you everything is big enough to take everything…literally!”

But according to blogger and political activist Mellissa Ryan, Cruz’s commentary reveals a huge hypocrisy on his part.

“Yes. Governments have no business controlling the reproductive systems of citizens,” Ryan wrote, replying to Cruz’s tweet. “Glad you’ve finally come around on choice, Senator. Also, congrats on an epic self-own.”

REVEALED: White House pushed FEMA to give its biggest coronavirus contract to a company that never had to bid

Published

Last month, as a deadly new virus swept over the globe, one Canadian defense contractor predicted on an earnings call that it would lead to a big business opportunity in the U.S. Thanks to the White House, that bet paid off just a few weeks later in a $96 million no-bid deal.

In an unusual move, even in times of disaster, the White House stepped into the federal purchasing process, ordering the Federal Emergency Management Agency to award a contract to AirBoss of America. The Trump administration has rushed through hundreds of deals to address the pandemic without the usual oversight, more than $760 million reported as of this week, but the AirBoss transaction is the single largest no-bid purchase, a ProPublica analysis of federal purchasing data found.

Trump mocked as a ‘gibbering lunatic’ for continuing to lie about how tariffs work at latest coronavirus briefing

Published

on

At Friday's coronavirus task force press briefing, President Donald Trump repeated, for the umpteenth time, his false claim that the government of China is paying the tariffs imposed on Chinese goods in the United States, as opposed to American businesses and consumers — something that he has repeatedly been corrected on. This time, he even went out of his way to note that people have debunked this claim, but saying that he still believes it anyway.

Commenters on social media exploded in frustration at the president's refusal to understand basic concepts of world trade.
