GOP

Chip Off The Old Racist Block


Cjones03242021

At a House hearing last week, Republican congressman Chip Roy made an argument for free speech and attacked China for the coronavirus.

Roy, as a former prosecutor, said he wanted to take out the “bad guys,” and called the Chinese Communist Party “the bad guys,” “patently evil” and listed a series of policy criticisms with the Chinese government, including its treatment of the Uyghurs, the theft of American intellectual property, the build up of its military and China’s lack of transparency over the origins and spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The only problem with bringing all that up is that the hearing wasn’t about China, the coronavirus, the Uyghurs, the theft of American intellectual property, or the build up of China’s military. It was a hearing on discrimination and increased violence against Asian Americans. The hearing was scheduled before the shootings in Atlanta that left eight people dead, including six Asian women.

Chip Roy said, “The victims of race-based violence and their families deserve justice, and as the case for what we’re talking about here with the tragedy of what we just saw occur in Atlanta, Georgia.” That sounds alright. But unfortunately, Chipper kept talking.

Have you ever watched The Office and during one of the awkward and uncomfortable moments thought, “Please stop talking, Michael Scott. For the love of god, please stop talking”? This was one of those moments, except more racist, more awkward, and with more stupid.

Chip said, “I think there’s an old saying in Texas about — find all the rope in Texas and get a tall oak tree. You know we take justice very seriously and we ought to do that, round up the bad guys.”

It seems like when Chip found out he was to take part in a hearing about violence and discrimination against an American minority, he thought it was in favor of violence and discrimination against American minorities. Yee-haw, get the rope. You would think that at some point during the sentence about lynching, at least one of his Republican colleagues would have tackled Chip Roy.

Chip was upset because he saw the hearing as an attack on free speech. He thought the hearing was an attack on his freedom to be racist. This is the first response from white male conservatives after six Asian Americans are murdered: “How will this affect my white privilege?”

There has been an increase in hate crimes against Asian Americans over the past year. It coincided with the coronavirus arriving in our country and Donald Trump waging a public relations war against China that included plenty of racist terms against Asians.

Chip Roy said, “My concern about this hearing is that it seems to want to venture into the policing of rhetoric in a free society, free speech and away from rule of law and taking out bad guys.” No. It’s not about policing rhetoric. It’s about policing white racism that leads to violence. To start, you need to find out where the seed was planted. In this case, it was probably planted when Donald Trump started using the term “kung flu.”

And then, racists started walking up to elderly Asian Americans and attacking them. Last week in San Francisco (In case you’re a Republican, that’s in California), a 38-year-old man punched an 83-year-old Asian American man and later, he punched a 75-year-old Asian American woman.

If your first concern after hearing about members of another race being punched and gunned down is for your white privilege, you’re kind of an asshole.

Here’s the thing, white people: Not everything is about you. This country belongs to the 75-year-old Asian woman just as much as it belongs to you. Don’t you get that? If not, it would be best for you to start understanding it.

I understand the world is a scary place for white conservatives. They’re losing elections and they’re becoming the minority. Most people in this nation don’t agree with them. They are no longer the silent majority because they’re never been silent and they’re no longer the majority. Now, they are reluctant to stop using racist terms. White people are starting to argue that not being able to discriminate is discrimination against them.

During the 2016 president campaign at one event in one of the Dakota states, Donald Trump used the slur “Pocahontas,” and was told quickly by a Native American reporter, “That’s offensive.” Donald Trump sounded like a child when he said, “It is?” He acted like it was the first time that was brought to his attention. He didn’t say it again at that event, but he continued to use it for the next four years.

In 1997 when I moved to Hawaii, my editor, who was a Japanese American, told me not to use the word “Oriental” to describe people. She wasn’t angry or talking down, but she explained to me, who was a 30-year-old cartoonist who just got off a plane from Mississippi, that the Orient is a place, not a people. I didn’t fight that. I didn’t resist. My whiteness wasn’t threatened. I stopped using that word for people and I was really glad she educated me and I walked away from that experience a little less ignorant. She may have saved my life. I did not continue using the word that way because I felt she was attacking my freedom. I did not feel she was “policing my rhetoric in a free society.” She was right and the best thing for me to do was listen to her wisdom and follow her advice.

Later that night, I met an elderly man in Waikiki, who was of Chinese descent, who really hated Japanese people. But, he never used the word “Oriental.” It was educational.

I’m not a total jerk. People do make mistakes. Donald Trump could be forgiven if he stopped saying “Pocahontas” as an insult after the first time someone told him it was offensive. But after being told it disparaging, he continued to use it. He continued to use “kung flu” and “China virus.” His people continue to use “Wuhan virus.” The virus is not a place and it’s not an ethnicity. The virus is not people. Perhaps the biggest problem with Trump using those words is that Republicans laughed with each use. Ah, Trump. You are so hilarious. Donald Trump will put people in danger for a cheap laugh…or to overturn an election.

New York Congressional Democrat Grace Meng told Chip Roy, “Your president and your party and your colleagues can talk about issues with any other country you want, but you don’t have to do it by putting a bullseye on the back of Asian Americans across this country, on our grandparents, on our kids.”

You’re free to criticize China. And just like criticizing the Israeli government isn’t anti-Semitic or against Jewish people, you can criticize the policies of China without attacking Asians. You can confront serious issues without putting a bullseye on people’s backs.

But maybe it’ll never work with Republicans because they’re so racist, they don’t know they’re racist. For example: Did you hear about the Republican asshole who used a lynching analogy at an anti-racism hearing?

Republican Head


cjones03172021

One of the funny things about the great cancel culture distraction when it comes to the Republican fear of trans potatoes, is the Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head are the same toys. I’m sure Hasbro has huge boxes of plastic potatoes somewhere in Taiwan and at some point along an assembly line, someone earning 43 cents an hour makes the crucial call for each potato whether it’ll have a mustache or a wig.

Technically, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head are both anatomically correct as potatoes don’t have penises and vaginas. I’m not a farmer but I’m still pretty sure of this. But, what the fuckers at Fox News are up in their plastic arms about is that Hasbro has dropped the “Mr” and “Mrs” from the toy line. But, they have not from the individual characters. I know. It’s weird. Let’s hope Sean Hannity never removes the camo pants off his GI Joes or he’s going to have an on-air freak-out. That may not be fair as it’s possible he’s removed the pants from his GI Joes lots and lots of times.

At some point, I expect these bags of dicks to show up at Hasbro with literal bags of dicks.

These things are just distractions. “Cancel culture” does not exist. I mean, if “cancel culture” did exist, then it has to be the description for all things canceled, like Colin Kaepernick from the National Football League or Rob Rogers, this year’s Herblock Award winner, from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Rob was fired because he refused to stop drawing cartoons about Donald Trump. He was literally fired for doing his job. But don’t worry. His right-wing replacement has drawn numerous cartoons about liberals and their “cancel culture.” Conservatives do not get irony.

Here’s the thing, kids: It’s not “cancel culture” to be removed from a social media platform by a private corporation because you retweeted Nazis or used the platform to organize terrorists. Was ISIS “canceled” by Twitter? I haven’t heard anyone on Fox News crying for the free-speech rights of al Qaida.

It’s also not “cancel culture” when the owner of the product decides to make changes. 

It’s not “cancel culture” when Disney decides to put a warning label on The Muppet Show. Are the shows gone? No. If nothing else, it’s easier to find them now. If you really love the Muppets, you can go watch the Muppets. Nobody is stopping you. Not even those two old guys in the balcony who hate everything. Even they’re more optimistic than the Fox fuckers. “Hey, Fox News isn’t half bad.” “I know. It’s all bad!”

It’s not “cancel culture” because the Dr. Seuss company decides to pull six books that you never read from their line of over 80 books. Nobody forced them. No government came down on them. The company that owns the titles is the one to make the decision on how Dr. Seuss’s legacy will be represented. It’s not up to you or anyone on Fox News. And let’s face facts. You’re not rushing out to purchase these Dr. Seuss titles any more than you’re out buying up all the Goya products. You Republicans don’t do spicy and you don’t do reading.

It’s not “cancel culture” when Warner Bros. decides to remove Pepe Le Pew from an upcoming film and all future projects. You can disagree and believe they’re overreacting, but it’s their skunk. Nancy Pelosi did not make this happen. The only skunk who contributed to rape culture that the public has removed was Donald Trump, who by the way, probably hasn’t seen his penis in years without the aid of a mirror on the floor.

Why are Republicans distracting right now? Because they don’t have anything else. Joe Biden’s approval ratings are sky high. The popularity of the covid-relief package, the American Rescue Plan, is astronomically high even with Republicans. So what can Republicans in Washington and on Trump TV bitch about? I know. Let’s make up some shit.

Look at the border. Sure, we can criticize the detainment of unaccompanied minors, but Republicans have made up lies about immigrants bringing coronavirus with them and have blamed President Biden for the fact they’re coming here. They are literally blaming Biden for being such a good president, that more people want to come to this nation. The distraction also helps to deflect from the fact that this was built up during the Trump regime as they would turn away immigrants who were seeking asylum..

George W. Bush tanked the economy. President Barack Obama rescued our economy and made it grow. What did Republicans have to complain about? They literally said it was the “worst recovery in American history.” That would be like all those Trump terrorists crapping in the Capitol during their insurrection, which they literally did, and then blaming Democrats for how slow they were to clean it up. Hey, you missed a spot!

I would half expect Republicans to gripe that they could have beaten the Nazis better than FDR did, but you know…if they didn’t love Nazis so much.

How dishonest are Republicans? I saw a meme this morning comparing the economic numbers in Obama’s first year, 2009, to the wonderful economic numbers in 2019 under Trump. The meme is dishonest. It ignores that Obama’s first year was his inheritance of Bush’s economy. It ignored that Trump inherited Obama’s great economy. And then, it totally ignores Trump’s last year when he tanked the economy. And all the comments under the meme were comments about the greatness of Trump and the nightmare of Obama. This shit works on Republicans? Why? Because they don’t have dicks.

No, it doesn’t work because they don’t have dicks. It works because they’re stupid…and they don’t have dicks.

So, don’t believe all the crap you’re hearing about Mr. Potato Head being trans and whether or not he has a tater telewacker from some Republican so fat that he hasn’t seen his own penis since the first Bush presidency…or from Tucker Carlson who hasn’t seen his penis ever, not because he’s overweight, but because he doesn’t have one.

Quite frankly, I think it’s a little concerning how consumed Republicans are thinking about penises.

Creative note: I put details into my cartoon characters that I see in actual people. Two weeks ago, I was at my dentist and his assistant has the hair style seen on the child in this cartoon. I loved her hair and knew I’d be adding it to a cartoon soon. I don’t know if she’d be flattered or insulted so I’m not sending it to her. I don’t want to piss off people who put sharp things in my mouth.

Oppressive Integrity


cjones03122021

Currently, there are 43 states that are considering 253 bills that will change laws affecting how people can vote.

Republicans from Georgia to Indiana to Iowa to Arizona and everywhere in between are trying to change laws that will limit the number of drop boxes per county, limit hours polls are to be open, limit mail-in voting, limit reasons to vote by mail, limit the number of voting locations, limit the number of days people can vote early, strengthen voter ID requirements and then…wait for it…limit the ability to get IDs.

Did you notice one word repeated a lot in the last paragraph? That word was “limit.” So, why so much limiting across the country? Is it because of widespread voter fraud, illegals voting, shady ballots, defective voting machines, Hugo Chavez’s ghost stealing the election from Donald Trump for Joe Biden? Nope. None of those things happened.

Republicans argue we have to change voter laws because the public has lost confidence in the voting system, even though there was no widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election. Republicans argue we have to restore “election integrity.” Restore “election integrity”? Where did it go? If no laws were broken, then why are Republicans trying to change them in 43 states? Why did the public lose confidence in the system?

The public has NOT lost confidence in the system. A bunch of Republican voters claim they have lost confidence in the system that wasn’t violated. More than half of Republicans, around 65%, believe Donald Trump won the election and Joe Biden stole it. What proof do they have? None. Despite over 60 lawsuits failing, they believe the election was stolen because a man who has told over 20,000 lies told them the election was stolen.

Republicans want to change voter laws that weren’t broken and because voters lost confidence in the system after they spent months telling them to lose confidence in the system. Keep in mind, this is the same party that invaded the wrong country that might have had weapons of mass destruction that didn’t and eventually costing us over $2 trillion. I think there should 65% of Republicans who realize that 99% of everything Republicans say is total and complete bullshit.

Why do they really want to change the system? Because they lost. My, that does sound simplistic, right? We’re talking about Republicans. Everything is simplistic.

But Republicans are about as good at hiding their intentions with changing these laws as they are at hiding their racism…and basically, changing these laws is part of their racism.

The big lie that the election was stolen is based in racism. The argument is that fraudulent ballots came from black voting precincts. Donald Trump used this racist lie to send racist terrorists to attack Congress, where even a few racist members there encouraged and helped coordinate the attack. Republicans didn’t hide that very well.

During a hearing at the Supreme Court, a lawyer for Arizona literally told Justice (sic) Amy Coney Barrett that they need to change the laws or Republicans won’t win.

Lindsey Graham can’t shut up about it. Senator Lindsey Graham, who called Georgia officials to try to overturn the election for Trump, told Fox News on November 8, “Mail-in balloting is a nightmare for us.” He said if they don’t change the laws, “We’re never going to win again presidentially.” In case nobody was listening, he returned to Fox News the very next day and said, “If we don’t do something about voting by mail, we’re going to lose the ability to elect a Republican in this country.”

It comes down to this: The more people who vote, the less chance Republicans have to win.

The fact is, the majority of Americans do not vote Republican anymore. Donald Trump lost the popular vote TWICE. If Republicans would actually work on policies that help the majority of Americans (not just billionaires) instead of promoting policies that most Americans want, or maybe not politicizing a virus that kills over 527,000 people, or not sending white supremacist terrorists to attack the government, maybe they would win more elections.

Republicans failed at overturning a free and fair election they lost, so now they want to change the rules.

Republicans would rather restrict minority voting rights than win legitimately. They tried to overturn an election they lost with 60 court cases. They lost the election 60 more times. Lindsey Graham, a United States Senator from South Carolina, called Georgia to get them to overturn their state election. Donald Trump called Georgia and told the Secretary of State to “find me the votes.” He invited state legislators to the White House to strong-arm them to overturn the election. He had lawyers tell lies about the “stolen election.” Members of Congress attempted to stop the certification required by the United States Constitution. Trump and members of Congress sent terrorists to engage in a bloody coup attempt. Trump supporters killed cops in an attempt to steal an election.

One party wants to open up elections, make voting easier, and encourage every eligible voter to vote. The other party wants to limit voting as much as possible. That party wants to oppress minority voting. That party wants to dismantle voting rights.

Racist Republicans only want racist Republicans to vote which is natural for them because once elected, they will only represent racist Republicans. In arguments before the Supreme Court, Arizona made it clear that the changes they want will allow any state to nullify federal voting laws. That means any state could ignore the Voting Rights Act.

Republicans’ main argument is that black and brown people voting can’t be trusted and it has to be fraudulent when they vote. This argument is based on nothing. This is another grab, like gerrymandering, where Republicans don’t want voters to pick who represents them, but allow Republicans to select who can vote for them.

Republicans, are corrupt, sleazy, racist, and anti-American…and they’re doing a horrible job hiding it.

CPAC Cult


cjones03032021

Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Donald Trump Jr told the cult that maybe the organization should now be called “TPAC.” In case you’re slower than Donald Trump Jr, the “T” is for Trump. The should keep it as “CPAC,” but with the first “C” standing for “Cult.”

The Republican Party isn’t about conservatism anymore. It’s not about policy. It’s not even about Republicans. It’s about Donald Trump. His entire strategy to retake the White House is to run on his grievances because it’s all about him. The only policy is subservience to Donald Trump. This is not a party anymore. It’s a cult. And in case you had any doubts, just take one look at the golden statue, seriously, that was wheeled into the convention. They literally brought a golden statue of Donald Trump. Some in attendance at CPAC literally bowed down before it.

Saddam Hussein had statues made of him while he was still alive. He even named Baghdad’s airport after himself. By the way, there’s a movement by the Trump cult to rename a Florida airport after Donald Trump. Typically, leaders die before statues are built in their honor. You know, leaders much greater than Donald Trump like Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Ronald McDonald.

Will Republicans soon be required to build shrines inside their homes to Donald Trump, like what’s required North Koreans for Kim Jong Un, his father, and grandfather?

This is what’s become of the GOP, the Grand Old Party. It’s a cult to Donald Trump and after four more years of this shit, worshipping a racist reality TV show host who was this nation’s worst president, who lost the popular vote twice, lost the House and Senate for his party, who continues the Big Lie of the stolen election, who instigates terrorists to attack the government in bloody coup attempts, and refuses a peaceful transfer of power to the president who defeated him in a democratic and free election, there will be nothing left of the Republican Party.

Even Mitch McConnell, who blamed Donald Trump for the attack on the Capitol and suggested he’ll be held accountable in a court of law on criminal charges, said he’ll support Donald Trump if he’s the nominee in 2024.

What’s left of the Republican Party is outrage over a stolen election that wasn’t stolen and Mr. Potato Head maybe not being Mr. anymore.

“The people at CPAC are living in an alternate reality in which facts don’t matter, the Constitution doesn’t matter. They have no principle except whatever their leader says.” Who said that? The former leader of CPAC, Mickey Edwards.

Edwards, who is also a former Oklahoma Congressman said, “The Republican Party really no longer stands for any kind of principles, conservative or otherwise. They’re no different than they are in Hungary…whatever the Great Leader says, they do.”

He also said, “The party seems now to be completely following the lead of one man wherever he goes, which is the definition of a cult. All that matters is ‘Trump is for this, we’re for this.’ And that includes denying truth, denying facts, denying reality.”

Edwards quit the Republican Party after the attack on the Capitol. Speakers at this year’s conference, appropriately being held in Florida, include Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz, who helped instigate the terrorist attack. Edwards said the current leader, Matt Schlapp, doesn’t have his job because when Edwards was the head of CPAC, “it was a group that was based on conservative principles. We were strong supporters of the Constitution. We believed in free elections. We believed in democracy. These people don’t believe in any of those things.” Schlapp does not push conservative issues anymore. Instead, he has pushed Donald Trump’s bogus stolen election lie. Removing yourself from reality is now a requirement to be a member of the Republican Party.

The entire conference has been one of lie after lie followed by conspiracy theory followed by conspiracy theory. I can’t wait to hear what policies Trump focuses on during his speech later today.

Are you a still a Republican after the leader of your party has tried to undermine our constitution and encouraged terrorists to attack the government in a bloody coup attempt? Are you still a Republican after it has been co-opted by Qanon?

If you’re still a Republican, congratulations. You’re in a cult.

Censure Culture


cjones02182021

Republicans must think they have a free pass with hypocrisy.

During the Obama years, they complained about him issuing executive orders and claimed he was using them trying to be a monarch. They championed Donald Trump’s executive orders and added them to his list of accomplishments. President Obama issued 276 executive orders to Donald Trump’s 220. In case you are a Republican, let me remind you that President Obama served two terms and Donald Trump only one because he lost his reelection to President Joe Biden. In case you’re a Republican, I should also remind you that a presidential term is four years and when you serve two terms, four times two equals eight. President Obama served eight years and Donald Trump only served four because he lost his reelection to President Joe Biden.

Also, I don’t recall President Obama ever showing off his signature on executive orders the way Donald Trump did as though he had just figured out how to write his own name. And from looking at his signature, I’m not sure he ever did.

Remember when Republicans hated on Obama for playing golf? I think there were a thousand political cartoons from right-wing troglodyte cartoonists on it. How many cartoons did they draw about Donald Trump playing golf? Zero. For the sake of comparison, let’s compare. According to Golf News Net, in case you’re a Republican, is a website about golf, President Obama played 333 games. Donald Trump, according to Statista.com, in case you’re a Republican, is a website about statistics, he played golf 285 times. Wow! President Obama played more golf than Trump. Oh yeah. President Obama served two terms and Donald Trump only one because he lost his reelection to President Joe Biden.

Another point on this is that when President Obama played golf, it was usually on a federal course which means it was at minimal cost to taxpayers. When Donald Trump played golf, each and every time it was at one of his resorts, which means we paid Donald Trump to play golf. His fans, cultists, love to point out that Trump donated his salary. But we paid him more than his salary to play golf. It’s estimated his golfing costs us $142 million. Most of that went directly into Donald Trump’s pocket. Which is another example of Republican hypocrisy.

They scream about the “deep state” and corruption yet ignore that Donald Trump grifted taxpayers at his resorts and hotels.

But it takes a special skill to whine about “cancel culture” while calling people “snowflakes.”

Republicans have a new term and it’s “cancel culture.” Anytime a Republican is told, “Sorry, we don’t want to hear any of your racism today,” they start screaming, “Cancel culture!”

They scream and yell that it’s censorship when they’re not allowed to express their “conservative” viewpoints on non-government platforms like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. But I haven’t heard of any Republican being kicked off Twitter for talking about conservative issues like the flat tax, or decreasing government regulations, or stripping away the inheritance tax so trust-fund babies can finally catch a break. No. I only hear about them being kicked off for spreading conspiracy theories, racism, and organizing and promoting white nationalist terrorism.

Actress Gina Carano was fired by Lucasfilm and Disney for comparing the criticism Republicans receive to the way Jews were treated by the Nazis. Gina would have an excellent point if all the Nazis did was talk bad about about Jews.

Trump cultists used the term when Donald Trump was kicked off Twitter permanently claiming his viewpoints were being discriminated against, ignoring the fact he used the platform to help instigate a terrorist attack on the United States government.

And now, the Cancel Culture Club is engaging in cancel culture within their own ranks. Republicans are censuring Republicans for acting like Republicans.

You see, kids, once upon a time the Republican Party was a party of issues and not one that worshipped a cult of stupid racist moronic personality. Today, the party is a cult. It’s totally built around one man. One very stupid, moronic, racist man.

Senator Lindsey Graham, who once said Donald Trump would destroy the party, has proven his point by stating the future of the party is Lara Trump. Who? That’s one of them gold diggers who married a Trump spawn. Wait until the entire organization is auctioned off in legal and criminal settlements. What are Lara’s qualifications for the United States Senate? She did marry the dumbest Trump which probably still makes her smarter than Lindsey Graham.

Lindsey Graham, who once called Donald Trump a “jackass” and a “kook,” said the “MAGA movement must continue.” Really? Donald Trump was an incumbent who lost reelection and you want that “movement” to continue? I predict if the “MAGA movement” continues, it’ll only make states trending blue trend faster. Say goodbye to Georgia, Arizona, and possibly even North Carolina. Democrats will eventually get Texas in that deal.

Congressthingperson and Qanon follower, Marjorie Taylor Greene, said that the Republican Party “belongs to Donald Trump and no one else.” She said, “It’s his party.” And he can cry if he wants to.

Signs you are in a cult include not being able to recognize that you’re a hypocrite and you’re not making sense. Another sign you’re in a cult is being unable to recognize you’re in a cult. If you are a follower of Trump and believe he’s going to come back and retake the presidency, or that the election was stolen from him, congratulations. You’re in a cult.

The Republican Party, the warriors against cancel culture because they believe everybody’s speech should be free, independent, and protected, is now cancel culturing out its own people for exercising free speech and independence. How day they stray from the Church of Trump.

After Donald Trump lost the to Joe Biden, the Arizona GOP censured Cindy McCain and former Senator Jeff Flake for endorsing Biden. They also censured their own Republican governor for working to combat the coronavirus instead of engaging in fear mongering and politicization of the pandemic.

After last Saturday’s vote in the Senate Trial that saw seven Republicans vote to convict Donald Trump, those seven are now being punished by the Republican Party. How dare they try to make someone responsible for inciting a terrorist attack. How dare they leave the Church of MAGA.

In North Carolina, the Republicans have censured Senator Richard Burr for his vote. Burr said, “My party’s leadership has chosen loyalty to one man over the core principles of the Republican Party and the founders of our great nation.” The core principle of the Republican Party is now Trump, which is ironic because Donald Trump doesn’t have any principles.

The Republicans in Pennsylvania censured Senator Pat Toomey for his vote.

The Republicans in my home state of Louisiana didn’t wait long in censuring Senator Bill Cassidy. They issued their proclamation the same day at the Senate vote. Cassidy replied, “Our Constitution and our country is more important than any one person. I voted to convict President Trump because he is guilty.”

Republicans in Utah are passing a petition around that states Senator Mitt Romney, “appears to be an agent for the Establishment Deep State” and “misrepresented himself as a Republican” during his 2018 campaign. Even the state party realizes that is nuts and they’re backing off a censure, but still…a lot of GOP cultists in Utah are pissed…and not just because they have to live in Utah.

Republicans in Maine have told their members “to be prepared for an emergency state committee meeting in the near future” over Senator Susan Collins’ vote to convict Trump.

And in Nebraska, Senator Ben Sasse has basically said to “Bring it on.” Sasse said, “You are welcome to censure me.” He then told them, “But let’s be clear about why this is happening. It’s because I still believe, as you used to, that politics isn’t about the weird worship of one dude.”

In Alaska, Senator Lisa Murkowski’s vote to convict may lure a challenge from…wait for it…Sarah Palin. And if you are a liberal political cartoonist, you’re thinking right now, “Oh please, God…make this happen and I’ll never eat pork again.” Gods against eating pork, right? I don’t know. How about tentacles? If Sarah Palin runs for the Senate, I’ll never eat tentacles again! You have my word.

Illinois Congressman, Republican Adam Kinzinger, has been shunned by eleven members of his own family which I can relate to. They wrote a certified letter to his father stating the congressman was a “disappointment” to them and “to God.” They were upset over his “horrible, rude accusations” to “president (sic) Trump.” The part that reeks of similarities to my sisters said, “It is now most embarrassing to us that we are related to you.” Then, they accused him of being in the “Devils Army.’

Do you know how to tell when you’re in a cult? When you accuse others of being in the “Devils Army.”

Each of these Republicans put their career at risk in opposing Trump. Kinzinger has been at odds with Trump since 2015, even receiving a message from Donald that he should go “fuck himself,” which makes me jealous. I wish I had a “go fuck yourself” from a Trump. But the party should appreciate and value members who are this brave. Instead, the party caves into fear and cult worship.

Do you know how to tell if you’re a cult? It’s when you seek to destroy those who disagree with your leader, the Dear Leader in this case. The Republican Party is behaving like the Workers’ Party of Korea.

Cassidy says our nation and Constitution are more important than just one person. Sasse says the party shouldn’t be “weird worship of one dude.” But Republicans are saying no.

The Republican Party, the party that was once the party of Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Ike, and Reagan, has put the weird worship of one dude before the Constitution and country. If you don’t believe me, look at what happened January 6. That was all for one weird dude.

The party of Trump that canceled Colin Kaepernick because of his opinions is now eating its own, ignoring its inconsistency. But canceling someone for his/her opinion is much different than canceling someone because s/he is racist or spreading dangerous bullshit. They also fail to see that being removed from non-government platforms and outlets is NOT censorship.

If you’re an asshole and I don’t want you in my house, that’s not cancel culture or censorship. That’s me not wanting an asshole in my house.

I have an assignment for Trump cultists who may be reading today’s blog. Read the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. After you read it, report back here in the comments section and explain how it applies to Twitter banning Donald Trump. Tell me how it applies to Disney firing Gina Carano.

There is a huge difference in all these “cancellations.” Gina Carano was fired for saying stupid insensitive shit, comparing being criticized to the Holocaust. Donald Trump was banned for starting riots. Cartoonist Ben Garrison was kicked off Twitter for sharing debunked racist conspiracy theories. Republicans are canceling Republicans for trying to make someone accountable for his actions. These Republicans are being censured, which is a punishment without any consequence, for not being sufficiently sycophantic.

It’s not cancel culture. It’s consequence culture. And Republicans don’t want any Republicans to face consequences for racism, conspiracy theories, or aiding and abetting terrorists.

And if the Republican Party is just going to be a cult to the “weird worship of one dude,” we need to cancel Republican culture.

MyManiac


cjones02072021

What happened to the Republican Party? They used to claim they were the party of personal responsibility. Now, not so much. It was just two years ago they couldn’t stand to let a member occupy a seat on committees who expressed support for white supremacy. Now? They’ll fight to defend a bigot who believes in crazy conspiracy theories and “liked” calls to murder Congressional Democrats.

Yesterday, freshman Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene defended herself before the House and said she didn’t believe in the crazy stuff she used to peddle. The way she phrased it was, she was “allowed” to believe the Qanon conspiracy.

First off, the Qanon cult is based on the belief there’s a deep state controlling our government of Satanic-worshipping blood-drinking pedophiles, and they’re all Democrats. Their membership consists of politicians and movie stars.

And yesterday, the party of personal responsibility looked the other way when Marjorie Taylor Greene said she was “allowed” to believe so much bullshit. Allowed? As in it’s not her fault? She’s an adult and a member of the United States House of Representatives, not a baby whose parents allowed her to stick forks into electrical outlets.

If I buy into the beleif that all Republicans are troglodyte racists who support terrorists and a president who wants to date his daughter…wait, bad example.

If I buy into the belief that all Republicans are incapable to get humor, sarcasm, and irony…sorry. Another bad example.

If I buy into the belief that all Republicans are greedy and corrupt… Shit.

I got it. If I buy into the belief that all Republicans are ugly (eh), it’s not the fault of the person who sold me that belief. It would be my fault. I’m an adult. I’m capable of looking shit up. There’s probably a Republican somewhere who’s not totally hideous or CHUD-like (C.H.U.D.s. Look it up). Marjorie Taylor Greene is an adult. She has the internet, right? She can use Google. She chose to chase conspiracy theories, and even worse, spread them to other stupid, dumbass hillbilly fucknuts.

Yesterday, Marjorie tried to convince us she’s not responsible for believing shit like pizzagate, the conspiracy theory that Democrats were operating a child-sex ring from the basement of a Washington, D.C. pizza parlor. And she stood on the floor and said 9/11 and school shootings did actually happen. For this, she was praised.

How insane is it that a member of Congress had to say they believed 9/11 and school shootings have happened? You know, I believe the Earth isn’t flat. Give me a medal.

You know what Marjorie Taylor Greene didn’t say?

She didn’t say that a plane flew into the Pentagon which is something she expressed doubt about in the past. She didn’t say the Parkland school shooting happened, which she called a “false flag” operation and went on to stalk and harass survivor David Hogg. She didn’t even say she has stopped believing that Jewish space lasers financed by the Rothschilds were responsible for California wildfires. And, she didn’t say she was sorry.

Republicans claimed she said she was sorry behind closed doors. But when she addressed the entire House and the nation yesterday, she said she had “regrets,” but didn’t apologize. Instead, she blamed the media and Democrats. And the party that tried to cancel Liz Cheney blamed “cancel culture.”

The biggest thing Greene didn’t apologize for or even bring up is her support of comments to murder Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats in the House.

Afterward, the House voted to remove Marjorie Taylor Greene from her committees, specifically the Education Committee. What sort of maniac puts a school shooting denialist and harasser and stalker of school shooting victims on the Education Committee? Kevin McCarthy, that’s who.

And 199 Republicans voted to keep that Qanon stalker on the Education Committee. Only 11 Republicans voted to remove her.

If this vote was confidential, would the GOP have removed her? The thing is, they’re afraid of upsetting the base. Marjorie Taylor Greene has raised an absurd amount of money on the Qanon lies. Minority Leader McCarthy went to Florida to grovel before the cult leader of Q, Donald Trump. The entire party is afraid of the terrorist-supporting base that is Qanon. The GOP is now the party of Qanon.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is not the only supporter and believer of lies and conspiracy theories in Congress. In the House, 147 Republicans voted against certifying the election which was based on the lie that it was stolen. It was the promotion of that lie that fueled the terrorist cult that attacked the U.S. Capitol.

And that’s another thing Greene didn’t mention, her belief in the big stolen election lie. And if you don’t think you fall down rabbit holes with conspiracy theorists and cultists yet believe in the stolen election lie, congratulations. You are Qanon.

The Republican Party is no longer the party of Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Reagan, or even George W. Bush. They are now the party of Qanon. They’re the party of that fucking MyPillow Guy. And if runs for Congress, don’t act surprised.

The Republican Party voted yesterday to be the party of Q.

False Flag Operation


cjones01302021

The Oregon Republican Party isn’t just saying “so what” about Donald Trump’s little violent insurrection party at the U.S. Capitol three weeks ago. The state GOP has officially latched onto a conspiracy theory that it was a “false flag operation.”

The party issued a resolution stating, “The violence at the Capitol was a ‘false flag’ operation designed to discredit President Trump, his supporters, and all conservative Republicans; this provided the sham motivation to impeach President Trump in order to advance the Democratic goal of seizing total power.” They’re basing this on a conspiracy website and The Epoch Times, a pro-Trump publication that’s just a prettier Daily Stormer.

Since the insurrection, over 100 of the terrorists have been arrested and they’ve all been documented as strong Trump supporters. So, if you accept the Oregon GOP’s “logic” (those are air quotes), then Trump supporters wanted to make Trump and his supporters look bad. To be fair, Trump supporters often make themselves look bad.

And the fucknuts aren’t just limited to Oregon. State party leaders across the nation are going after fellow Republicans who aren’t Trumpy enough. While the Trump cult cries about censorship and “cancel culture,” they’re eating their own for the sin of free thinking.

In Arizona, the party censured Governor Doug Ducey for defying Trump and taking the coronavirus seriously, and for not stealing the state’s electoral college votes for Dear Leader. They also censured former senator Jeff Flake and John McCain’s widow, Cindy McCain, for endorsing Joe Biden. The censure is a powerful thing but still, how dare they not goosestep along with the beat?

The chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party issued a statement condemning Congressman Tim Rice for voting to impeach Donald Trump.

The Oregon GOP resolution also condemns the ten Republicans who voted to impeach Trump stating, “The ten Republican House members, by voting to impeach Trump, repeated history by conspiring to surrender our nation to Leftist forces seeking to establish dictatorship void of all cherished freedoms and liberties.”

Certifying the winner of a presidential election, as the Constitution demands, is establishing a dictatorship? Now I know why the Oregon GOP is not taken seriously in Oregon…except you know, when they hold the door open for terrorists.

Before MAGA terrorists attacked the U.S. Capitol, they attacked the Oregon state house. One of the Republicans voting for their “false flag” resolution is chief of staff for a state representative caught on camera holding a door open for the mob.

In Hawaii, the vice chair of communications of the state Republican Party had to resign after tweeting support for Qanon, the conspiracy theory troglodytes that enable terrorists. He actually sent multiple tweets, with one saying, “We should make it abundantly clear — the people who subscribed to the Q fiction, were largely motivated by a sincere and deep love for America. Patriotism and love of County should never be ridiculed.” He also tweeted that Qanon followers are “patriots.”

Personally, I think people who believe in deep state lizard people who are Satanic-worshipping pedophiles should always be ridiculed. New Congresswoman, Marjorie Taylor Green, a follower of Qanon who liked Facebook posts about killing Nancy Pelosi, should require constant ridiculing. Ridiculing ridiculous people helps make them less dangerous. She liked those posts about executing Democrats. She didn’t give them the frowny-face emoji.

Social media accounts connected to Qanon helped coordinate the terrorist attack on the U.S. Capitol which resulted in the deaths of five people, including a Capitol Police officer. Qanon has been labeled a terrorist threat by the FBI. Republicans supporting Qanon may as well be tweeting support to al-Qaida and ISIS. We have supporters of terrorists in the United States Congress.

Back at the U.S. Capitol building, in the very same chamber they had to flee because MAGA terrorists were invading, 45 Republican senators voted yesterday that impeaching Donald Trump was unconstitutional. Forget they were standing where it happened. Forget they saw it happen. Forget that the mob was out to kill them. When it comes to choosing America or their cult leader, the Republican Party chooses the cult.

Only five Republican senators voted that the impeachment was constitutional. Do you know what’s unconstitutional? Overturning an election because you don’t like the outcome. It’s unconstitutional to give the presidency to the guy who came in second in electoral votes. It’s unconstitutional to hand the presidency to a fascist dictator. It’s unconstitutional to attempt a bloody coup.

Mitch McConnell, MINORITY Leader (that looks nice in print), voted against the trial…stating it’s unconstitutional to try a former president AFTER he delayed the trial until Donald Trump…wait for it…became a former president (sic). This is the same kind of fucking logic McTortoise Face used in stealing two Supreme Court seats.

Senator Lindsey Graham gave a speech in that same chamber the night of the insurrection saying he couldn’t support Trump anymore. He said, “All I can say is count me out. Enough is enough… We’ve got to end it.” A week later, he was flying on Air Force One again. Graham voted that the Senate trial was unconstitutional. Even Riff Raff bailed on Frank-N-Furter eventually.

Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley also voted that the trial would be unconstitutional…after supporting an unconstitutional coup attempt. We’re allowing the terrorists to vote on whether a terrorist should be convicted or not.

Marco Rubio voted the same way and along with former Trump U.N. Ambassador, Nikki Haley, cried that the trial would be divisive. You know what’s divisive? Coup attempts, terrorists attacks, overturning elections, MAGA mobs of fucknuts, etc. Nikki cried that we need to “give the man a break,” casting Trump as a victim in all this. She whined that people have been going after him since before he was elected. She forgets, she was one of them before she became a Trumper. In fact, it was in her state, and at a rally she coordinated, where Marco Rubio made fun of Trump’s little penis. She laughed along. She didn’t say, “Give the man a break” when Marco was talking about Donald’s dinky dick.

There’s been talk about a huge divide in the Republican Party over choosing America or Donald Trump. There’s been speculation that the party wants to move on and distance itself from Mango Mussolino, Hair Gropenfuhrer, the Orange-Flavored Shitgibbon, Mr. I’d-Date-My-Daughter-If-She-Wasn’t-My-Daughter-MMM-MMM-MMM. But it appears that while thousands of Republicans have become former Republicans since Cheeto’s terror attack, elected Republicans and party officials are sticking with Donald Trump. They’re choosing cult over policy and an orange racist personality over country.

But people are leaving the GOP in higher numbers than usual after an election. In North Carolina, 6,000 Republicans have bailed on the party. In Arizona, 7,5000 left. Thousands have also left in Florida, Pennsylvania, and Colorado. Polls show that a majority of Republicans want to move on from Trump…but it’s the terrorists the party is listening to.

Naturally, everything Republicans claim they support is something they’ll easily discard for Trump, like patriotism, family values, and washing their hands. Now, the same gang who got upset over kneeling during the national anthem, who want a Constitutional amendment protecting the American flag, are ditching the American flag for the MAGA flag.

In refusing to punish a president (sic) who instigated a terrorist attack against our nation, who tried to overturn an election, who tried to steal power for himself, the Republican Party has put cult of personality over the nation. The GOP has abandoned all principle and integrity. Donald Trump doesn’t need to create a new party because he already has. The Republican Party isn’t even conservative anymore. It’s just a cult. Instead of punishing terrorists, they’re now holding the door open for them.

The Republican Party is raising the MAGA flag and seeing who salutes.

Resume The Position


cjones01272021

The Republican Party sold its soul for Donald Trump. Positions? What positions? In service to their orange messiah, the GOP vanquished all their previous positions. The party is more of a cult than a party. Now, they’re trying to figure out if they’re a party in pursuit of positions again or if they still need to bow down before the Trump base.

The one positive for the GOP is that Donald Trump is off Twitter. Can you imagine the tweet storm we would have had the pleasure of experiencing if he was still on the platform? I feel sorry for the poor caddy he’s probably barking at right about now over President Joe Biden erasing his “legacy” of hate and stupidity.

If Donald Trump forms his own party with the hypocritical name, “Patriot Party,” that doesn’t allow the GOP to be a party of issues again. They will be reminded of all they gave away to Trump and his base. Just because they don’t like you anymore doesn’t mean you can pretend you always cared about deficits or family values.

But the Republican will now try to criticize stuff they allowed Donald Trump to get away with. It’s like when President Obama was playing golf during his two terms (because unlike Trump, he got two). The Republicans were aghast at how much he played. Even Donald Trump attacked President Obama over his golfing. As soon as the Trump regime began, Trump started playing golf and the GOP forgot their indignation over a president (SIC!) playing golf. Donald Trump spent more time on the golf course, his own by the way, than any president ever ever ever ever ever. You know, I’m starting to think that maybe it wasn’t the golf.

In the process of playing golf, Donald Trump bilked the government for services at his golf resorts. He even charged the government for his own lodgings at his own resorts. He charged the Secret Service for nights they weren’t there. He charged the Secret Service for golf cart rentals. Donald Trump literally charged the Secret Service to protect him. He’s still doing that, by the way. Donald Trump is corrupt.

During his presidency, he collected money from foreign dignitaries staying at his hotels and resorts. Republicans spent money at his resorts and hotels to curry his favor. Attorney General and apparently party animal William Barr rented out Trump’s ballroom to throw a party during a pandemic. One cabinet official even tried to purchase a mattress from the Washington Trump Hotel. Trump tried to get an international summit at one of his shitty golf resorts. An ambassador tried to get a major golf tournament at one of his Scottish resorts. This is major corruption.

Donald Trump treated the presidency like an ATM machine.

Then, he tried to steal the election by extorting a foreign leader to go after his political opponent. Before that, he asked Russia to help him…and they did. This was corruption.

Now, when the GOP talks about corruption, don’t let the hypocrites get away with it.

The Republicans make a big deal about government spending. They’re very loud on the issue…but only when a Democrat has the White House. They were silent during the Bush years…and then the next set of Bush years. Bill Clinton took away their right to control the issue because he left a surplus. The GOP couldn’t have a good bitch fest over the deficit for 28 years, from Reagan in 1980 to 2009, when President Obama took over. Immediately, they went after President Obama for the deficit George W. Bush created. After President Obama left the White House, after winning election TWICE, the Republicans gave credit for his booming economy to Donald Trump, who was very successful at inheriting stuff other people built and at being an old white rich dude.

During the Trump years, Republicans wasted billions on a stupid useless racist wall they said Mexico would pay for, watched Trump spend millions on vacations, watched the Secret Service spend millions protecting his dumbass trust-fund baby children, and gave huge tax cuts to corporations and asshole billionaires like Donald Trump and his dumbass trust-fund baby children.

So now when they start talking about government spending and deficits again, don’t let them get away with it.

The Trump regime established the 1776 Commission, which is a whitewashing of American history that caters to the white privilege, OK, racist perspective. Now, they’re upset Joe Biden is getting rid of it, or at least off the White House website. During his inaugural address, Biden criticized white supremacy. Senator Rand Paul went off, claiming that Biden called Republicans white supremacists. He did not but we can all thank Senator Paul for outing himself…not that we didn’t already know it.

Now, they’re calling for unity with brainwashed conspiracy theorists cultists and white nationalists. After four years of Trump racism and after staging a bloody failed coup attempt against our government, I don’t want to hear these assholes complaining that their white privilege is being denied.

Last week, people who consider describe themselves as Antifa attacked the Democratic Party headquarters in Portland, Oregon. They set a few dumpsters on fire. The Republicans tried to equate it to the white nationalists Trump mob attack on the Capitol, while leaving out the part about the target being the DNC. The most amusing thing out of this was that after four years, the GOP was finally critical of dumpster fires. Damn, I should have my own talk show.

Also, when these Republican goons demand transparency from the Biden administration, ask them why Donald Trump made a secret run to Walter Reed BEFORE he caught the coronavirus?

When they go after Joe Biden for his executive orders, like they did with President Obama, remind them of Donald Trump’s executive orders.

Remind Republicans they’re hypocrites. They sacrificed a lot for Donald Trump and maybe the biggest thing they gave away was their right to gripe about anything. They spent four years ignoring an assault on our nation so I don’t want to hear them pretend they care now.

Joe Biden can get caught with 20 prostitutes and as long as he doesn’t tell over 30,000 lies, should be free from Republican criticism.

Cult Or Country?


cjones12302020

For years, decades even, Republicans were lying to us. They told us they were “fiscal” conservatives. They said they were for family values. They ran on religion as if the other party consisted entirely of heathens and atheists. They wrapped themselves in the flag and said they were more more patriotic than Democrats. And they told us they support our troops.

We’ve always known they were lying about the fiscal thing. The last time there was a balanced budget under a Republican was during the Eisenhower administration. Republicans spend more than Democrats. The debt increases more under Republicans. Republicans give permanent tax cuts to billionaire assholes and corporations. They finance wars with tax cuts to billionaires. And the only time you hear Republicans talk about controlling spending is when Democrats have the White House. But it took Donald Trump for Republicans to reveal all their other positions were lies. Funny thing is, they’re still telling them.

The party that went after Bill Clinton over his lack of family values and for having multiple affairs turned around and backed Mr. Grab-Them-By-The-Pussy. They supported a man who boasted about cheating on his wife and assaulting women…while he had a newborn child at home. They supported the guy who boasted about barging in on naked teenage girls. The supported the guy who divorced twice, cheated on all three of his wives, and has five children with three different women. They supported the guy who has nearly 30 accusations ranging from assault to rape. They supported the guy who looked at a child and said, “I’ll be dating her in a few years.” They supported the guy who talks about dating his daughter and grades her figure. Republicans lied about being the party of family values. If anything, they’re the party of icky creepy fuckers.

Even before Donald Trump showed up grabbing pussies, Republicans made a pedophile the Speaker of the House. A pedophile. In case you’re a Republican, a pedophile is…wait. If you’re a Republican, you already know what a pedophile is.

Republicans lied about religion and their love of Jesus and God. They literally turned their entire party into a cult worshipping a reality TV show host. Anyone who opposes Trump is cast out as a sinner and blasphemer. The religious right and evangelical base proved what a bunch of wormy hypocrites they are when they started supporting the guy who ogles little girls and throws babies into cages. Jesus wouldn’t do that.

They lied about being patriotic. They voted for the guy endorsed and supported by Vladimir Putin. Here’s a voting primer: Don’t vote for the guy supported by Russia. It’s as easy as that. Republicans were silent when Donald Trump gave away classified information to Russians in the Oval Office. They were silent over his taking Putin’s word over our intelligence agencies. They remained silent over Russia tampering in our elections to help Trump. They have yet to criticize Trump for allowing Russia to hack into our nation’s computer system or for Trump downplaying Russia’s involvement. They’ve allowed Donald Trump to shove allies aside and embrace Russia. The party that tells us Democrats are communists ignores Donald Trump saying he fell in love with a communist (In case you’re a Republican, that’s Kim Jong Un).

Now, they have to choose between Donald Trump and the military. Just like you can’t be a patriot and a MAGAt, you can’t be a Trump supporter and a supporter of our military.

Look at House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. He voted for the defense spending bill which includes pay raises for our troops. Donald Trump vetoed the bill over removing names of Confederate generals from military bases and something that wasn’t even in the bill. Yesterday, the House voted to override Trump’s veto. McCarthy, who voted for the defense bill, turned around and opposed it (he missed the vote). If he’s wearing a neck brace today, it’s because he has whiplash. How many other Republicans will need neck braces?

The bill is for spending $740 billion on our defense…for one year. We spend more on our defense than the next ten countries…combined. While Donald Trump has boasted about “rebuilding the military,” we’ve been increasing the defense budget yearly long before Donald Trump even heard that “I’m Just a Bill” song. But now, the guy who claims he rebuilt our military and loves our troops has vetoed the bill. Why?

First off, he vetoed it because it doesn’t include a repeal of Section 230, a law that shields internet companies from being liable for what is posted on their websites by third parties. In case you’re a Republican, I’ll explain that.

If I go on Twitter and create a post claiming Donald Trump barges in on naked teenage girls so he can ogle them and he wants to date his daughter, he can’t sue Twitter. Why? Because it’s true. But, say you own Twitter and some idiot makes a post claiming George Soros is funding migrant caravans, and it’s a lie. Section 230 protects you from being sued by George Soros because some anti-Semitic orange idiot made a libelous post on your platform. What does any of this have to do with our defense budget and military? Absolutely nothing. But this is the logic of the world’s greatest negotiator. We don’t understand it because we’re not as smart as Trump. Surely, it has to be a genius move. What Trump did with his veto was put himself before the military because the entire social media thing is only about him.

There were other complaints with the bill, such as limits to how much money Trump can move from the military to his useless racist border wall (it should be zero), and that Confederate naming thing. That’s another point against being patriotic. Just how patriotic are you when you’re fighting to retain traitors’ names on U.S. bases?

There was also a measure requiring the Pentagon to submit reports certifying that the proposed troop withdrawals from other nations, like Afghanistan and South Korea, would not jeopardize U.S. national security. Donald Trump didn’t like that.

The House voted 322-87 on Monday to override the veto, well above the two-thirds needed to override. It now goes to the Senate which also needs two-thirds to override. The question is: How many Republicans who were initially for it will now be against it? How about those two Republicans senators from Georgia? Yikes for them. Where do they stand on orange billionaires ogling naked teenagers?

In the House, 109 Republicans voted to override Donald Trump’s veto while 66 voted to support Donald Trump. There are 66 House Republicans who chose Donald Trump over our military. I don’t know how many of those 66 voted for the bill the first time, but I’m working on it and will report back when I have the number. But the bill was unchanged. There was nothing different about it except that Donald Trump vetoed it.

This was the first override of a Trump veto. It’s an excellent way for him to end his presidency (sic). Even with goons like Kevin McCarthy remaining, his control over the party is slipping. Still, he may lash out at those who voted for the override. Mean-tweeting 109 individual Republicans would require a lengthy session for toilet-tweeting, but I believe Donald Trump can do it. You go, you.

Now, we get to find out how many Republican senators will choose Trump over our military. You can’t support our military and Trump. You can’t be a patriot and a Trump supporter. You can’t be pro-democracy and pro-Trump.

You can’t be a loyal American and a Trump supporter.
