News That Will Drive You To Drink

Happy Hour News Briefs

It all started off innocently for Kyle Kashuv, the Parkland shooting survivor turned right-wing, pro-gun activist:

…if by innocent you mean a 16-year old who uses the N-word with regularity. Now Kashuv has not denied his invective-laced vocabulary, but has apologized for “egregious and callous comments” when he was 16, “months prior to the shooting.”

Now of course Harvard is a private school and they can decide whatever they want, for whatever reasons they want. When one applies to college, one is judged on matters academic and extra-curricular. It’s not just did you flunk Spanish, it’s did you flunk life?

And that was when the right wing decided to pitch-in and save the potty-mouthed yute from hisself. Hilarity ensues!

BEN SHAPIRO DESTROYS… oh. Wait a moment. No he does not:

Tiny Ben tries to play his tiny violin, but isn’t he really saying that no one should be judged against the hate in their hearts? And maybe that’s a tacit admission of something Ben ought to examine in his own life?

NEXT!

Notorious gun-humper Dana Loesche tried to make guns the innocent victim here:

As I wish for Dana everything that she wishes for me, she can pull my forgiveness out of my cold, dead, fingers.

GET THE HOOK!

But MPS’ favorite Todd Starnes won the prize for the stupidest hot take:

To which one lone spitballer replied,

I don’t want to drag a kid, even if said kid is kinda/definitely racist; but I’m glad to drag on his defenders.

Sen. Cotton, Penpal to Iran’s Mullahs, Speaks!

Deep Thoughts From Tom Cotton

When the prznint was a black guy and negotiating a nuclear arms treaty, as you might recall cake-eating uncouth jug-eared Senator Tom Cotton (R-Tehran)  was writing letters to Iran undermining the Prznint. Today? Not so much:

From Cotton’s interview on Face the Nation:

Margaret Brennan: You have long been defined as a hawk on Iran. You see these recent attacks, these are commercial vessels not military installations. What kind of response is warranted?

Senator Cotton: Well Iran for 40 years has engaged in these kinds of attacks going back to the 1980s. In fact, Ronald Reagan had to reflag a lot of vessels going through the Persian Gulf and ultimately take military action against Iran in 1988. These unprovoked attacks on commercial shipping warrant a retaliatory military strike.

Margaret Brennan: Are you—you’re comparing the tanker war in the 80s to now and saying that that’s the kind of military response you want to see?

Senator Cotton: We can make a military response in a time and in a manner of our choosing. But yes, unprovoked attacks on commercial shipping warrant a retaliatory military strike against the Islamic Republic of Iran.”

One question remains.

“CUT!”

Tonight on the Apprentice: Stable Genius Signs Empty Papers

ABC News is dribbling out teasers from their long-access interview with Prznint Stupid, and boy-howdy, do we get to see him up close and personal:

It’s all showbiz to our Stable Genius. The look of disgust after Mick Mulvaney coughed and interrupted his interview, and then Comrade Stupid returns to his mark to continue to dither exactly where he left off, it is a really bothering thing.

But not as bothering as this exchange (emphasis mine):

STEPHANOPOULOS: You know that every president says that.

TRUMP: I– I disagree. Look, it’s been acknowledged. Although they do say Abraham Lincoln was treated really badly. I must say that’s the one. If you can believe it, Abraham Lincoln was treated supposedly very badly. But nobody’s been treated badly like me. And this way I can fight the dishonest media, the corrupt media, the fake news.

And because we began with a tweet, let’s end with this one that some obscure wag sent:

Eiron, The Goddess of Irony, Weeps

There are some design flaws in the wall.

As insulin costs rise, American diabetics make for Canada

At the wheel: Lija Greenseid, a rule-abiding Minnesota mom steering her Mazda5 on a cross-border drug run.

Her daughter, who is 13, has Type 1 diabetes and needs insulin. In the United States, it can cost hundreds of dollars per vial. In Canada, you can buy it without a prescription for a tenth of that price.

So, Greenseid led a small caravan last month to the town of Fort Frances, Ontario, where she and five other Americans paid about $1,200 for drugs that would have cost them $12,000 in the United States.

The irony of desperate Americans heading north in a caravan seeking medicine that they cannot afford here should be unsettling, but this is the world we live in. That no one in power sees the parallel to what’s happening on our southern border is a travesty. The reasons people flee might be different, but the need to do it is the same.

Bad policy makes outlaws out of good people, and this, all of this, is a result of profiteering. There’s a human cost.

In 3… 2… 1… ‘Fake News’ Prznint Stupid Bellows

Fox News poll shows Trump trailing Biden, Sanders, other Democrats

Well, this ought to make him turn a deeper shade of orange and blow the wig right off:

“A Fox News poll released early Sunday shows President Trump trailing five Democratic contenders, including former Vice President Joe Biden, by as many as 10 points.

“The poll, conducted June 9 to June 12, shows Biden ahead of Trump, 49 percent to 39 percent. It also shows Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) topping the president, 49 percent to 40 percent.

“Three other candidates also polled ahead of Trump, albeit within the survey’s margin of error. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) came out ahead of Trump by 2 points, while Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) have 1-point leads. “

Gee, when your own Pravda on the Potomac reports this, it must be bad, and note that Prznint Stupid cannot You’re Fired them, they way he You’re Fired’ed his own polls for giving him info he hated:

A person familiar with the purge said the firings were less about the accuracy of the polling and more about meeting the President’s demands. Another person with knowledge of the discussions refuted this, saying it was about the leaks.

(Axios – click for link to their coverage)

If Prznint Wee-Hands McVulgar is going to fire people for giving him bad news, he’s not going to have anyone left standing in the bunker in the third reel. Here’s the message he’s sending to his campaign: “Give me bad news and You’re Fired.” So they will lie to flatter him.

Popcorn anyone?

UPDATE 1:

“The campaign also cut ties with Brett Lloyd, president and CEO of The Polling Company, the former firm of White House senior counselor Kellyanne Conway. Baselice and Geller are expected to begin working instead with America First, the pro-Trump super PAC … Lloyd is not expected to continue working with any Trump-affiliated entities.” CNN

That’s gonna sting BS Barbie, because you better believe she was getting a commission.
