Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump-Russia scandal finally brought charges forth this week and everyone is anxious to find out what's going to happen. Will Trump himself be affected at all? At the rate Sanders Huckabee, Fox News and Trump's tweets are going, you'd guess not, especially with the current lack of checks and balanced within the system, but everyone can dream. Even if it does happen, there's still Pence, Ryan and co.
He's not going Democrat, but Jeff Flake says that he's had enough of the outrageousness that is Washington right now. Although he's retiring, he says he also can't stand by while Trump and Co. dismantle this country and his party. He says that while Trump is leading the Republicans, they are becoming a "fearful, backwards thinking minority party" and that there is a sickness in the system.
And it's not because she's lying. Nope, Kate McKinnon's pants aren't on fire, but her comedy certainly is! Last Saturday she posed as Kellyanne Conway yet again and the skit was fabulous.
Remember in Harry Potter when the gossip mag The Quibbler became the true source of news and The Daily Prophet was untrustworthy? There's a sense of deja vu there when you think about the stories that Teen Vogue now runs, including the current story about youth with disabilities being incarcerated at a higher rate.
Enough is enough. It's time to bring back the common sense gun laws that we had in this country before buffoons stripped them bare. The simple background checks, waiting periods, assault rifle bans and other laws that made us safer from those who would use guns to harm us are needed now more than ever. It's ridiculous that we even have to repeat history to demand them back.
There is no such thing as a non-offensive protest that actually gets the job done. Are you tired of people complaining about protestors, saying things like, "If they just did what Dr. King did things would be fine!" Well, Dr. King took the knee. Dr. King led marches and events that disrupted people's daily lives. That is how protests work. Rosa Parks wasn't protesting transportation when she refused to move from her seat and Colin Kaepernick isn't protesting the U.S. flag, either: both were protesting systematic racism that contradicts the freedoms that flag is supposed to represent.
Did you miss the memo where White House press secretaries get to determine who gets fired or not? Me too! Apparently Sarah Huckabee Sanders thinks that's just another one of her powers, since she said that Jemele Hill of ESPN's words were a "fireable offense" when she tweeted that Donald Trump is a white supremacist. Sanders is now facing an ethics complaint for her remarks.
It's the kind of story that sounds ridiculous and completely unbelievable until you remember who the president of the United States is, then you think, "Oh yeah, this could be a problem." Kid Rock for senate? Although he didn't officially announce a campagin, the redneck rock singer made it clear that he's as political as ever during his latest speech.
Yesterday I saw a meme where Osama Bin Laden was brought back to life and standing next to Trump. It had a caption that indicated Trump was doing something else to undo all of Obama's work and it would've made me laugh if it didn't make me cry. Donald Trump is the real American Horror Story that Ryan Murphy and company are even acknowledging (okay, so they're pointing out overreaction on both sides of the aisle).
Donald Trump seems to think he's still campaigning. He gave this bombastic, ridiculously long speech in Arizona last night and basically attempted to divide the nationa harder than ever. I'm wondering if it's this man's intention to create another civil war in the United States because that's the way it feels as if this road is going. Perhaps he witnessed just how unified everyone seemed on Monday during the eclipse and thought, "Nope, gotta keep 'em separated."
