Comedy is a feminist issue

I know many of you were offended by the WHCD comedy routine.

As an aging Baby Boomer, I have to tell you that I was very proud of this young woman last night. I'll try not to make this too cliche about obstacles and barriers, but what I saw is a woman who did a Don Rickles take down on the most vicious, inhumane mob and their media toadies that the WHCD has ever seen.

I hear my nieces about her age talk about women who have no fucks to give and there it was on full display. The generation with 80k in loans is not going to go for the "gentle ribbing" and "mutual respect" the old folks in the sycophant media are calling for today.

In 20 minutes she shamed them on Bear Sterns, Flint, me,too (Fox News is here ... cover your drinks), our lying Press Secretary who burns facts and wears it as eye shadow. It goes on and on.

Here was a woman Court Jester mocking and belittling the NAZIs and their enablers, without the slightest flinch of "I'm so sorry to be mean and crude."

One of the means of controlling girls when I was growing up was the "act like a lady" admonition. Any bad behavior and we were shamed as unladylike. Talking back was unladylike. Protesting was unladylike. Showing up the boys was totally unladylike.

I thought Michelle slapped them with her unladylikeness and shamed them with human values. (Our President is a pussy, he's broke and he's lousy in bed and by the way, why TF are you people sitting here when Flint still has dirty water?)

A milestone. Question her taste, but not her heart.

Not for nothing, she was mobbed by the young attendees to the WHCD after the speech. She's one of them.

Say what you will about Michelle Wolf

Every time I see Huckabee Sanders I will be hearing the Maybeline jingle in my head (maybe it's Maybeline/maybe it's lies)

When I see joe and Mika: it's the me, too that worked out for people

Some of her jokes have stayed with me and I've laughed a second and third time.

Question for the men out there

Would the Stormy interview embarrass you if you were the subject? I don't know what counts for social embarrassment these days

I think we are missing something from the 60 Minutes segment

They clearly laid out how Michael Cohen is PERSONALLY in legal trouble for making an excessive contribution to the Trump campaign and that he has value to mueller because he knows about the Trump Tower Moscow negotiations and likely, other Russian contacts. He can be pressured to give relevant testimony to Mueller. This is probably what is making Trump sick tonight. (And the fact that a 27 year old found him to be repulsive). Cohen is Trump's bag man and they have leverage on Cohen.

That, and unprotected sex with a porn star could get you killed by some wives, even those who don't love you.

Stand down on Iran?

Time to offer him Trump Tower Moscow or Vice Presidency of Russia.

Mueller sent lists of questions to Trump lawyers

He's got to be thinking it's time to shut investigation down or take the 5th. He will face political backlash either way but taking the 5th is only way to avoid jail or at least try to avoid jail.

He now knows at least some of what Mueller knows because Mueller does not ask what he does not already know.

Selling American foreign policy for personal profit

Democrats need to sell this point. It is what actually happened and what is continuing to happen.

Every single meeting with Russia was Trump/Trump family member/trump supporter/Trump lackey offering to give away a piece of American foreign policy for money.
