It never ceases to amaze me that the people who call me a snowflake for arguing that children shouldn't be kept in cages, the attorney general has to uphold Supreme Court rulings, that bullying and warmongering aren't presidential activities, etc. are the ones who cry foul over a black woman being cast as Ariel, the Little Mermaid, in Disney's upcoming adaptation.
Like many of my friends, I've been writing, calling, tweeting and doing whatever I can to fight these draconian laws being put on women's bodies intended to overthrow Roe v. Wade and send us all back in time to put us in our place. At this point I'm running out of hope. What do we even do? I think they're going to overtun Roe.
The big orange baby with the tiny hands, AKA the president of the United States, is throwing another temper tantrum and shutting the government down for what I believe is the third time in his term. Why? Oh, it's over that terrible wall that he not only promised his xenophobic supporters but that he also promised Mexico would pay for, of course. What else would it be over? And while people say that it's not really affecting anyone all that much, that's incredibly untrue.
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.
The White House saga continues to become more laughable, cringe-worthy and downright depressing all at once. What a presidency!
Now that Comey has testified that Trump, indeed, obstructed justice when he issued threats to Comey's job in order to suppress his investigation into Trump's ties into Russia, but when will Americans see any movement toward impeachment?
Anyone who claimed that Hilary Clinton was a security threat because of her emails last year who refuses to demand Trump's impeachment now for the same (worse, really) reasons must now admit that they never felt that Clinton was a security risk and that they simply hated her. Much of that is certainly rooted in sexism, but even if it's not, Donald Trump is the grosses example of not only a security threat but treason in modern America. How can Republicans fuel a lengthy investigation and waste of tax dollars over sex in the oval office but ignore this terrible danger?
Donald Trump is at it again. Not only does he continue to release his own tax records as he promised to do during the election, but he is also claiming that the protesters who took to the streets to demand his records last weekend were paid protestors once again and now he’s demanding THEIR tax returns instead!
It’s moments like these when progressives have hope against a Republican-controlled House and Senate. Senator Jeff Merkley is currently speaking against Gorsuch, and he’s been on the floor for over 14 hours at this point. This is an exhausting undertaking and the senator is proving his mettle, earning him praise from people from all facets of the Left today.
