Last night, news broke that started to answer a few of the questions we've all been asking: "WHERE ARE THE GIRLS? WHERE ARE THE BABIES? WHERE ARE THE TODDLERS?" We still don't have all the answers to those questions, by any means, and we still don't have all the pictures and video footage Americans need to truly grasp what's going on -- because the Trump administration won't give journalists access -- but we now know thanks to reporting from the AP that the youngest, most fragile children ripped from their parents at border crossings are being held in "tender age" shelters, because doesn't that sound nice? It's like jail, but for babies! Baby jails!


How's this for a fucking lede?

Trump administration officials have been sending babies and other young children forcibly separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border to at least three "tender age" shelters in South Texas, The Associated Press has learned.

Lawyers and medical providers who have visited the Rio Grande Valley shelters described play rooms of crying preschool-age children in crisis. The government also plans to open a fourth shelter to house hundreds of young migrant children in Houston, where city leaders denounced the move Tuesday.

The fourth shelter will be in an old warehouse previously used for Hurricane Harvey survivors! Doesn't that just sound cuddly and caring and fun? Like a summer camp for babies, right, Laura Ingraham, you feckless human cold sore?

AP and New York magazine quote many child health experts -- you know, like pediatricians who actually know about this shit -- saying this is clearly child abuse, so you can file those with the quotes Dok cited in his story yesterday about how America is now the "wire mother," referring to those old timey child attachment experiments with rhesus monkeys. (You should read it, if you haven't.)

To be clear, migrant parents are traveling thousands of miles, fleeing violence and mass murder, traversing cartel country where they face more violence and mass murder, and if they're lucky enough to make it to a border crossing -- a legal one or an illegal one, depending on which one they can reach, which is not always their choice -- they cross and look for American border patrol agents so they can ask for a asylum, only to be arrested and have their babies stolen and put in "tender age" shelters. Don't you feel proud to be an American right now?

And will those babies ever see their parents again? Hahahahaha, nobody fucking knows. Maybe not! NBC News has more on that right here, and it is harrowing.

MSNBC's Jacob Soboroff reported during Tuesday night's Lawrence O'Donnell program that Donald Trump's child abuse policies haven't so far acted as a deterrent to those fleeing Central America in hopes of a better life. Because the journey can take weeks, the "no room at the inn" message just hasn't quite gotten to everybody, we guess. Soboroff, who has covered border issues for many years, made a chilling prediction about what happens next, once the message goes out that America is stealing babies to use them as ransom for funding for Trump's dumbass border wall -- that migrants will start actually running from border patrol, and that the next images we'll see will be of dead "tender age" children who don't survive the trek. He reiterated on Twitter:

U-S-A! U-S-FUCKING-A!

Maybe this will be the story we look back on as the turning point on this issue, as people start seeing the pictures and watching the footage and reading the stories the Trump regime doesn't want us to see. It's a hell of a lot easier for the president to lie and tell his base all the asylum seekers are MS-13, if they can't see the jailed babies in baby jail. At the moment, only 27% of Americans -- Trump's most hardcore base -- support this policy, while 66% are against it, and one can only imagine there are some mommies in that 27% who, when confronted with baby jails (and worse), might reconsider their allegiance to President Pussgrab.

We hope.

Trump met Tuesday night with House Republicans who are totally trying to Do Something about this (you betcha!), and Ivanka Trump has reportedly been telling her dad all these jailed brown babies are really harshing her mellow, like omigod Dad, stop it, you're such a silly maniacally racist sociopath, Dad, ugh! Ivanka Trump, as always, is invited to go fuck herself, for being so utterly useless.

For now, though, all the reporting says our outrage is exactly what the Trump administration wants. This is the "trolling as government" philosophy of OWNIN' THE LIBS that infests the unfuckable shit brains of people like Stephen Miller, who is steering this policy. It's what drives Corey Lewandowski to say "WOMP WOMP" upon hearing news that a Down Syndrome child was separated from her family at the border. These modern-day Nazis firmly believe Donald Trump could shoot Central American babies in the middle of Fifth Avenue and it would just motivate their most fervent, most xenophobic base to show up and vote for them MORE MORE MORE! They are banking on this. Time for crying's over, Rachel Maddow (even though we understand!). It's up to us now to STAY FUCKING MAD and show them just how wrong they are, on election day in November, and on every other day, starting right the fuck now.

U MAD BRO? We are U MAD BRO. Let's be U MAD BRO together, WITH VOTES.

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."

'Baby Geniuses' star Jon Voight took to Twitter early this morning to proclaim his undying love for Donald Trump, probably because there is no one left in his life who will listen to him talk about this, or anything else, in person. In this video rant, Voight encouraged members of the Republican Party, whom he apparently thinks are the only real citizens of the United States, to stand by Donald Trump and "acknowledge the truth" that he is the best President since Abraham Lincoln.


Part ONE:

People of the Republican Party, I know you will agree with me when I say our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy. For he's battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. I've said this once and I'll say this again. That our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers, and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln. I'm here today to acknowledge the truth, and I'm here today to tell you my fellow Americans that our country…

Oh no, not our absurd words of destruction!

Part DEUX:

is stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our President has made his every move correct. Don't be fooled by the political left, because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president. Let us stand up for this truth, that President Trump is the greatest president since President Lincoln.

Does Jon Voight not know there have been... other presidents? Can he name them? Because really, it does not sound like it. Does he also not know that a very big chunk of the Republican Party actually does not care very much for Abraham Lincoln? Namely those defenders of Confederate statues that Trump called "very fine people?" Also, did he intentionally diss their beloved Ronald Reagan?

Who can know? Who can even tell what he is trying to say or why he is trying to say it. He doesn't appear to have tweeted much since 2016, so I'm guessing whoever's job it was to keep him from tanking his career quit. Either that... or after filming the seventh season of Ray Donovan, he found out it's going to be canceled or his character is getting killed off or something and he is now free to be a jackass? I don't know, I haven't watched the show, although my parents are very into it and mad that I haven't watched it. Literally all I know about it is that it has something to do with Boston, because they keep mentioning that to me like it's a selling point.

It seems useless at this point to note that the people who scream their faces off about how bad it is for Hollywood celebs to support liberal causes, and how they should keep their politics to themselves, etc. etc. make a way bigger deal than normal people do whenever a Big Time Hollywood Celebrity like Jon Voight or, uh, Scott Baio, supports their cause. Mostly because they're the only ones who have elected a reality TV star and the star of Bedtime for Bonzo (who by the way, also once practically ruined a perfectly good Bette Davis movie with his bad acting. Which is not to say that Dark Victory is not fantastic and probably the best thing to watch if you want to sob your face off, but he was very bad in it.) to run the country.

But we might as well do that anyway, because it actually never stops being funny.
