Trust Trump at your own peril

RNC PR BS just learned that lesson.

Cheetolini is pathologically unable to stop himself from being an embarrassment

At this Medal of Valor ceremony, he went out of way to feel up and ogle Steve Scalise's wife. What the fuck is wrong with this guy, doesn't he know that people can see what he's doing?

The fool is a bonafide sexual predator. Creep factor is seriously on high.

FDT.

The Chief of the Minneapolis PD just resigned over a cop shooting of a citizen

And this, boys and girls, is a fine demonstration of how white privilege works in America and why it's important to eliminate it. Its very existence can backfire onto white people as well.

Does anyone think, for one second that, had a white cop shot and killed a black guy named "Mohammed" under the exact same scenario a Somali cop killed that nice white lady, we'd get the same outcome?

When black people are killed so casually by the police, the actions of the police are usually condoned, even when those killings are recorded and egregious. The police are allowed to investigate and exonerate itself and the media plays along with demonizing the victims. With the killing of Ms. Damond, that hasn't been the case... Why? Because, in this country, white lives have always mattered more than black lives.

This is why the loud and clear message of Black Lives Matters is so important. We are the canary in the coal mine when it comes to police malfeasance and police brutality. It should be abundantly obvious why that message should be heeded.

BLM is trying to tell America something: This happened to us and it can happen to you as well. If only you had listened when we protested over lost black lives killed by cops, then maybe that nice white lady might be alive today.

White America, continue to ignore black voices crying out for justice at your own peril. The police are not your friends.

Unlike Angry Spice, S.H. Sanders is very comfortable with lying her ass off.

Spicey looked as if he was having a crisis of conscience every time he took the podium, on the other hand, Sanders lies with complete ease and without any remorse whatsoever.

Captain Nutmeg only lasted six months... Jumping ship at the earliest provocation. The Preacher's Daughter is going to be with us for quite a long time.

OK, who had six months on the Anger Spice WH career Dead Pool? YOU WIN!!!



I'm surprised that he held out for this long.

I'll be the first to admit that I've said some pretty mean stuff about John McCain over the years...

In every case, it was either about something he's said, about his political stances, his presidential campaign and the fact that that campaign inflicted Caribou Barbie onto the body politic.

But, in spite of that, I had always respected his military service and the fact that he once tried, though unsuccessfully, to carry on the legacy of Barry Goldwater in the US Senate.

Like some of you as well, with your friends and family, I've also personally seen what brain cancer can do to someone. It's some seriously nasty shit that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

It's times like this where politics has no place.

I wish him a speedy recovery and my best wishes goes out to his family.
