Trump's Biggest Whoppers

To the GOP extremists trying to invoke “the unborn” to jail people for abortion:

Where are you on climate change? OH right, you want to burn fossil fuels til there’s hell on Earth.

If they were truthful about their motives, they’d be consistent in their principles. They’re not.

The GOP doesn’t care about babies at all - especially brown, black, or poor ones. If they did, they’d:

- cosponsor the Green New Deal or at LEAST have a real climate plan

- guarantee healthcare so ALL can get prenatal care

- not stand for the death+caging of babies on our border

What angers me about the GOP’s attempts to turn the United States into a far-right Christian theocracy is how dishonest they are about it.

At least be forthright about your desire to subvert and dismantle our democracy into a creepy theological order led by a mad king.

How big was it, Jim?  One of the most damning things in the Ohio State Report is that so many faculty members were fully aware of the sexual abuse that was going on and said or did nothing about it.  As many as 50 according to the report.  And though sweaty Jughead Jordan was in the same sports programme as the team doctor and though he was specifically named as knowing about it all by as many as 28 former students, a spokesperson for Jughead continues to deny it.  

And here I thought he was a know-it-all.

Who are these 173 Republicans who vote AGAINST Equality for all of American's citizens?  The American Taliban.

 Republicans feel that some Americans are more equal than others.

No.  They are extreme conservatives who represent the wishes of the majority of people who vote in Republican primaries and/or voted them into office.  They know the voters in their districts.

I believe there is also a fear that many private religious affiliated organizations, schools and churches would be required to do something against their religious beliefs.  Not to mention other individuals.

I am not defending them, but the above is why they voted as they did.  Of course, some are extremist right wing bigots.

George Conway Retweeted Jonathan Martin

“‘Can you really out Trump Trump,’ asked Tim Bottaro, 60, a lawyer. ‘When you decide to give him a nickname, isn’t that stooping to his level?’”

The answer is no—if you’re using the nickname to drive home a serious, factually supported criticism of this vile man.

During the Weinstein scandal, CNN literally had a clock counting the hours it took Hillary Clinton to respond.

Where are the headlines calling on every Republican elected official to demand the RNC and NRSC return Steve Wynn's money?

One of the truisms about our world is that there is a separate criminal-justice system for extremely wealthy people. Keep that in mind as you read the RNC's defense of taking money from alleged serial sexual assaulter Steve Wynn. https://www.politico.com/story/2019/05/17/republicans-steve-wynn-sexual-assault-1331479

At start of Senate Watergate hearings, today 1973, Chair Sam Ervin said, “The health, if not the survival, of our social structure and of our form of government requires the most candid and public investigation of all the evidence….The nation and history itself are watching us."
