I don’t know weather to grasp my pearls or slap that bitch. Or BOTH.
Former drag performer Rep. George Santos (R-NY) flew into a foul-mouthed diatribe against “drag nuns” on Wednesday. “I don’t usually swear but… The ‘Drag nuns’ can FUCK ALL THE WAY OFF!” the serial liar lawmaker tweeted. “The mockery they cast on the Catholic faith is DAMN offensive and WRONG!” It’s unclear what prompted Santos’ outburst, though the decision to invite a member of the drag activist organization Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to a Pride Month celebration in the California Assembly sparked Republican protests this week.
Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina said Saturday that he accepts Joe Biden as president and that the 2020 election was not conducted fraudulently.
Cawthorn was one of more than 120 House GOP members who voted to sustain the objection to electoral votes from Arizona and Pennsylvania earlier this month when Congress met to to certify President-elect Biden’s victory.
“Yes, I think I would say that the election was not fraudulent. You know, the Constitution allowed for us to be able to push back as much as we could and I did that to the amount of the constitutional limits that I had at my disposal. So now I would say that Joseph R. Biden is our president,” he added.
When pressed by CNN’s Pamela Brown to explain what evidence had motivated him to contest the election results in the first place, Cawthorn visibly struggled to string together a coherent sentence and argument.
Today Chris Johnson of the Washington Blade asked Donald Trump if he was okay with his administration’s recent steps to make it easier to discriminate against LGBT workers.
Well, you know, I just got an award, or an endorsement yesterday from the exact group. You saw that? They gave me the endorsement yesterday. I’ve done very well with that community and some of my biggest supporters are of that community, and I talk to them a lot about it. I think I’ve done really very well with that community, as you know, Peter Thiel and so many others, they’re — they’re with me all the way, and I just got a big endorsement from the Log Cabin group.”
REPORTER: Mr POTUS, your administration has been taking steps to make it easier to discriminate against LGBT people in the workforce. Are you okay with that?

Kellyanne Conway on Sunday defended conditions in a border detention facility she toured, saying they demonstrate what happens when “Congress gets its act together.”
“I witnessed no overcrowding, I saw lots of supplies, I saw diapers, I saw food, I saw endless supplies of water,” the White House counselor said on “Fox News Sunday,” referring to a facility she recently visited near McAllen, Texas.
“What I saw is what happens when Congress gets its act together and passes humanitarian aid,” she added
That’s exactly what the Nazis said about their concentration camps. They even went so far as to make showcase concentration camps for the Red Cross to inspect
Someone please smack that bitch already. Repeatedly.
President Trump on Thursday called Democrats’ opposition to his proposed border wall “strictly political” and accused the party of seeking an advantage in the 2020 presidential election as a partial government shutdown entered its 13th day.
The tweet echoed comments Trump made during a lengthy and at-times meandering Cabinet meeting a day earlier, when he claimed the government is partially shuttered because “Democrats are looking to 2020.”
The Shutdown is only because of the 2020 Presidential Election. The Democrats know they can’t win based on all of the achievements of “Trump,” so they are going all out on the desperately needed Wall and Border Security – and Presidential Harassment. For them, strictly politics!
Via a press release from the Democratic National Committee:
Today, Mike Pence hosted the White House’s World HIV/AIDS Day event. During the event, Pence failed to acknowledge the LGBT community for the second year in a row and lied about the administration’s record combating HIV. Here are some of the lies he told, and some of the truths he forgot to mention:
THE LIES HE TOLD
Pence boasted about the success of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS program, despite the fact the Trump administration diverted funds from the program to offset the costs of its immigration family separation policy. Poz: “Trump Agency Is Using Federal HIV Funds to Separate Immigrant Families”
Pence celebrated the 15th anniversary of PEPFAR, calling it “one of the most successful investments in health care and humanitarian aid in American history,” while Trump’s budget proposal slashed the initiative’s funding. Daily Beast: “Trump’s Budget Cut for HIV/AIDS Would Kill 300,000 People Per Year, Report Says”
Pence claimed Trump brought a “renewed energy and focus” to the battle against HIV/AIDS. I mean, come on. [see below]
THE TRUTHS HE FORGOT TO MENTION
Trump fired the remaining members of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS after several members quit because Trump “doesn’t care” about the issue. Huffington Post: “Trump Terminated All Members Of HIV/AIDS Council Without Explanation”
Trump still hasn’t appointed anyone to lead the White House Office of National AIDS Policy. Washington Blade: “Trump needs AIDS wake-up call”
Trump announced the “Deploy or Get Out” rule, which could remove HIV+ military personnel from service. Newsweek: “How Trump’s ‘Deploy or Get Out’ Policy Could See People With HIV Kicked Out of Military For No Reason”
Pence, while governor of Indiana, opposed a needle exchange program and exacerbated the local HIV/AIDS crisis. Politico: “How Pence’s slow walk on needle exchange helped propel Indiana’s health crisis”
Even though his party lost control of the House, President Donald Trump declared a “big victory” on Wednesday morning as he focused on Republicans picking up seats in the Senate.
The Associated Press projects the chamber will remain in Republican hands, with a Democratic takeover bid blocked after losses in Indiana and North Dakota. But Democrats, fueled by wins in key suburbs, will control the House come November.
28 out of the 31 candidates Donald Trump endorsed lost.
The Democrats gained more than the 23 seats they need to take over the 435-seat lower chamber.
They can now launch investigations into the Trump administration’s business affairs, from tax returns to potential conflicts of interest.
The Democrats could also more effectively block his legislative plans.
Lindsey Graham is going high in response to Chelsea Handler going low, after she claimed to out him on Twitter. We got the Senator from South Carolina Friday at Reagan National Airport, and asked him about Handler’s #NationalComingOutDay tweet.
Instead of blasting her — as many others have — Graham insisted Chelsea had every right to say whatever she wants. As he put it, it’s a free country. Graham did tell us, “To the extent that it matters, I’m not gay” — but it was definitely a measured response.
Brett Kavanaugh defended his nomination to the Supreme Court in his opening statement at the Senate Judiciary hearing on Thursday, calling efforts to derail his confirmation process a “grotesque and coordinated character assassination” fueled by people’s hatred of President Donald Trump and funded by left-wing opposition groups. “I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone, not in high school, not in college, not ever,” Vaughan said fighting back faux tears and badly timed breaks for water to add dramatic effect.
The world just laughed out loud at Donald Trump. On Tuesday, during the president’s address to the United Nations General Assembly, the audience laughed when Trump boasted that “my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country.”
As soon as the words left Trump’s mouth, a ripple of laughter traveled through the crowd and grew as Trump reacted to the guffaws. Taken aback, he said, with the smallest of grins, “It’s so true. I didn’t expect that reaction but it’s okay.”
