THE SAMANTHA BEE RESULT

Earlier today I blogged about the alleged comedian, samantha bee, calling President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, a “feckless cunt”….among other similarly disgusting invective. Well, bee has now apologized.  Via twitter, she says: “I would like to sincerely apologize to Ivanka Trump and to my viewers for using an expletive on my show to describe her last night.  It was...

ANOTHER “UNFORTUNATE ACCIDENT”?

From Alex Thompson’s article at vice.com: Less than a week before the California primary, Google listed “Nazism” as the ideology of the California Republican Party. In the “knowledge panel” that provides easy access to information next to search results, Google was showing “Nazism” as an “ideology” of the party as of Thursday morning. The word “Nazism” was hyperlinked to...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from the alleged comedian, samantha bee. As the furor over Rosanne Barr’s racial insult to Valerie Jarrett – which was taken down and apologized for hours later – continues, this is what bee had to say about President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka on her TBS* show last night:  “Ivanka Trump, who works at the White House, chose to post the...

A QUICK “BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR” POINT

Roseanne Barr has become a non-person. It took virtually no time at all for her repulsive, obviously racially-charged comparison of Valerie Jarrett to an ape, for her hit show to be cancelled, the reruns of her original show to be cancelled, her agent to dump her and the Entertainment/Political Complex (EPC) to exorcise her from existence as she knew it. Did Ms. Barr bring this on herself?  You...

DOES KIM JUNG-UN FEAR LEAVING NORTH KOREA?

Until today, I had never heard of “The Chosunilbo” website, or writer Lee Yong-soo. But, in his latest piece, found on that site, Lee makes an excellent point about kim jung-un’s reticence to travel outside his country for the upcoming summit with President Trump:  namely that, in his absence, the military will capitalize on its opportunity to stage a coup and take over the...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from a source I rarely use, because she usually is so far to my right on social issues; Ann Coulter. Ms. Coulter, whether you like her overall politicals or not, is an extremely talented writer.  And when she gets things right, it makes for a really good read. And Ms. Coulter’s latest piece, on how Hillary Clinton’s loss in 2016 contributed to...

WHEN IT COMES TO TRUMP, THERE IS NOTHING TOO SMALL FOR THE NEW YORK TIMES TO BE SMALL ABOUT

This retraction, as related in Joe Concha’s article at thehill.com, tells the tale: The New York Times has corrected a crowd size estimate it provided following President Trump‘s rally in Nashville, Tenn., on Tuesday night, after receiving sharp criticism from the president. The paper on Wednesday stated that attendance was more than five times larger than estimates it had...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from the flyweight (in my opinion) host of NBC’s “Meet The Press”, Chuck Todd. Here is what Todd had to say about the NFL’s recently enacted rule making it unacceptable for players to kneel during playing of the National Anthem (they can stay in the locker room if they choose to): “The NFL made a decision — now, it has to do with the...

DID “THEY” GET TO TREY GOWDY?

What happened to Trey Gowdy? On January 31 of this year, Gowdy, a Republican conservative, four -term member of the House of Representatives and Chairperson of the House Benghazi Committee, suddenly announced he was retiring from the House of Representatives at the end of his term. Since then, he has done little but praise robert mueller and support mueller’s “investigation” of...

MSNBC’S “EVERYDAY RACISM IN AMERICA” TOWN HALL

How ironic that, on the same day Roseanne Barr’s career summarily ended (at least for the time being) over a racist tweet, MSNBC ran a “town hall” titled “Everyday Racism In America”, with a panel featuring: -Joy Ann Reid, who – when she is not lying about her rich history of homophobic tweets, uses race as the catch-all/end-all of just about every issue. -Al...

THE QUOTES OF THE DAY

Today’s quotes (there ae several of them) come to us from Roseanne Barr, via the same twitter account that, effectively, ended her career yesterday. (Not only was her show immediately canceled, but her agent dumped her, and most – maybe all – the cable networks showing reruns of the original series have dropped it as well. ) What does Ms. Barr have to say now? Here’s your...

ANOTHER PUTIN ASSASSINATION?

From Jack Crowe’s article for nationalreview.com: A Russian journalist well known for his scathing criticism of the Kremlin was shot dead in his Kiev apartment Tuesday night, apparently in retaliation for his activism, according to Ukrainian national police. “The first and the most obvious is his professional activities,” Kiev police chief Andriy Krishchenko said of the victim, Arkady...

JOY ANN REID IS JUDGING ROSEANNE BARR????????

No need to write much here; I’ll let Brian Flood do it for me, via the following excerpt from his article at foxnews.com: MSNBC provided viewers with one of the most tone-deaf moments in cable news history on Tuesday when Andrea Mitchell asked Joy Reid about a racist tweet that Roseanne Barr sent about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett. Last month, Reid famously kinda-sorta admitted to...

AND THEN THERE IS DISNEY/ABC’S JIMMY KIMMEL

If the previous blog wasn’t enough for you, please read Matt Wilstein’s account, published by dailybeast.com (hardly a pro-Trump venue), of what Disney-owned ABC’s late night host, jimmy kimmel, had to say about President Trump’s relationship with his son, Barron, and Melania Trump, who she hosted an easter egg event for children at the White House, then read them a...
