News That Will Drive You To Drink

Happy Hour News

Get yer MAGA hats here!

It’s not a big reach to go from ordering the Possum Hollar Irregulars to protest, to death/bomb threats. It’s all Domestic Tuckerism:

Bragg, DA probing Trump, received death threat letter with white powder

The FBI and NYPD are investigating a letter containing a death threat and white powder that was mailed to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, whose office is investigating former President Donald Trump, law-enforcement sources told NBC News.

The letter was addressed to Bragg and said, “ALVIN: I AM GOING TO KILL YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!” the sources said. It contained a small amount of white powder.

It was the latest in what a senior law enforcement source described as “several hundred threats” in Bragg and his office in recent weeks. A couple dozen were considered to be directly threatening serious harm to Bragg, the source said.

There were no evacuations or injuries, officials said.

You can practically draw a straight line from his rhetoric to the Red Hats deciding  to send bomb threats, mail white power, and send in death threats.

These are all prosecutable crimes, too, and you better believe that someone is already investigating them.

Keep Yapping, Dumbo

Seething Rage.

I just overheard some legal beagles saying that this kind of rhetoric is exactly what gets bail denied. Also (they speculated) this is Obstruction of Justice. I didn’t think of either of these things when we covered this item this morning. We regret the error.

Keep yapping, Dumbo.

Grifters Gotta Grift

H/T Scissorhead Skinny-D

No one climbs onto the cross like a Republican. He’s threatening violence again:

In an overnight social media post, former President Donald Trump predicted that ‘potential death and destruction’ may result if, as expected, he is charged by the Manhattan district attorney in connection with hush-money payments to a porn star made during the 2016 campaign.

The comments from Mr. Trump, made between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. on his social media site, Truth Social, were a stark escalation in his rhetorical attacks on the Manhattan district attorney, Alvin Bragg, ahead of a likely indictment on charges that Mr. Trump said would be unfounded.

Last weekend, he grifted $1.5M Ameros from the rubes with his call to protest. Fat Nixon wants a cheeseburger, methinks, and is playing victim again.

Area Billionaire Seeks Cash Flow For Doomed Vanity Project

Where there’s smoke, there’s Space Karen

Space Karen strikes again:

I’m telling you that no one! no one! has any respect for April Fools Day. I’ve seen reports that the OG blue checks were applied by hand and that there is no systematic way to delete them. They can run a report to find them, but then Space Karen’s orcs and minions must change each account’s status manually. But I digest


The only individual Twitter users who will have verified blue check-marks are those paying for Twitter Blue, which in the U.S. costs $8/month via the web and $11/month through in-app payment on iOS and Android. Earlier Thursday, the company announced that Twitter Blue was now available worldwide.

For companies and brands, Twitter recently introduced a gold check-markand has shifted government accounts to a gray check-mark. As previously indicated, a subscription to the social network’s new Twitter Verified Organizations program in the U.S. — which will be the only way to keep a gold or grey check-mark badge — will cost $1,000/month (plus tax) and $50/month (plus tax) for each additional affiliate subaccount. (See pricing here.)

The point of the original blue checkmark was to let users know that they were reading the actual Tweet from the celebrity/journalist and not a parody account. Now that anyone can buy a blue checkmark, it’s an $8 Amero/month license to troll.

I honestly wonder if newsrooms are going to pony-up $1k Ameros (+ $50 per actual reporter) per month. I always thought the blue checks were vanity/status markers (“Oh, she has THAT purse!”) than anything else, but maybe confirming you identity is worth it for Brands.

We’ll see.

DerSantis: ‘Nein’

It isn’t exactly the full-Sherman, but the Pride of Floriduh, squeaky-voiced authoritarian Gov. DerSantis does not want to be Hair Füror’s running meatball, er, running mate:

I mean, after all, he lacks the essential skills to be in the 4th Reich, like knowing how to pay hush money to a porn star.

Here’s Some Stupid To Start Your Day

It really has come to this:

Florida Principal Out After Viewing Of Michelangelo’s ‘David’ Upsets Parents

Three (3!) parents complained about an art teacher showing a picture of Michelangelo’s 16th-century buck-nekkid sculpture of David and they fired the bastard for showing pron to the kiddies (sixth graders, I believe).

My guess is that Republicans are soon to ban The Renaissance what with free-thinkers, and art and such that doesn’t feature dogs playing poker or the singing fish.

Some Postprandial Stupid?

Scissorhead Skinny-D sends us the funniest story of the day with the greatest criminal masterminds of their generation:

US prisoners use toothbrush to dig hole, go for pancakes

As Skinny-D summarized,

“I think this was a Raising Arizona plot pitch that didn’t make the movie.”

That’s perfect. No notes.
