Hey! So remember that time the "alt-right" had a party and they Nazi-saluted all over the place with Tila Tequila? Sure you do!

Well! They didn't want none of that this time around! Because sure, they're white supremacists who are eagerly awaiting "the fourth reich," but they don't want people to know that. Otherwise, you might not take them seriously. Thus, Captain Deplorable Mike Cernovich told all the other deplorables not to do any Heil Hitlering at the Deploraball.

Take a moment and think of a time when you have had to ask people not to do any Nazi salutes. I will wait!

But I will not wait long because that is not a normal thing to have to ask people. Ever. I mean, I did in middle school, when it briefly became the hot trend for assholes to "Heil Hitler" at me in the hallways because they thought it was hilarious that I thought that was offensive (and people say we don't understand small towns!), but it's not so much a thing I have to ask people at parties I host myself!

Also attending the ball was Martin Shkreli, aka PharmaBro, recently banned from Twitter for harassing my friend and former colleague, Lauren Duca, and once the most hated boy in the entire country. But now that we are living in the Groundhog Day version of Opposite Day, probably he is some kind of national hero. Probably all the Trump supporters are like "Yay, Martin Shkreli! Thank you for charging so much for cancer pills! Can't wait until we all don't have any health insurance and get to pay for them out of pocket!"

In the meantime, protesters outside were getting tear gassed.

Peter Thiel was there, too, because of course he was, but apparently he ran away immediately after being spotted by some reporters. Which is hilarious.

OOH! And you know who else was there? Jim Hoft, the Stupidest Man On The Internet, who will soon be the Stupidest Man In The White House Press Room! Yes, he announced at the DeploraBall that The Gateway Pundit will now be an official White House correspondent.

He appears around the 2:07 mark.

I did not watch the whole thing, because it is four hours long, but I skipped around a bit, and one thing I can tell you is that these people sure do use the term "Anglo" a lot more than your average person who does not have to tell anyone not to do a Nazi salute.

In what seems like a perfectly logical move where corporations are people, MGM International Resorts is suing all the victims of the Las Vegas massacre in federal court. But don't worry -- at least the company isn't seeking damages from them for its own corporate pain and suffering! Instead, the lawsuit is a maneuver to head off liability claims related to the mass shooting last October 1, as is only right and just. All they want is what's coming to them, like immunity from damages and some ill will from consumers, which will no doubt blow over eventually.

Do-Nothing Republicans Continue Doing Nothing About Traitor Trump

Can you keep a crook in office while not looking crooked yourself?


Monday in Helsinki, Donald Trump stood next to Russian President Vladimir Putin, the official sponsor of Trump's White House reality show, and glibly debased America and its institutions in exchange for a soccer ball, which frankly is more than his soul was ever worth. Republican leaders, defenders of liberty all, strongly condemned the president's actions. House Speaker Paul Ryan went so far as to say, "There's no place for this. [He] should apologize. That's dangerous for our society, that's dangerous for our democracy."

Sorry, no, that was a statement Ryan made when Rep. Maxine Waters suggested citizens personally let members of Trump's cabinet know how much they suck. Ryan's actual statement post-Helsinki reminded me more of the "vaguebooking" your friend posts on social media when their marriage is collapsing.

There is no question that Russia interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy here and around the world. That is not just the finding of the American intelligence community but also the House Committee on Intelligence. The president must appreciate that Russia is not our ally. There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russia, which remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals. The United States must be focused on holding Russia accountable and putting an end to its vile attacks on democracy.

"Sometimes you realize you should've listened to your family and friends. You should trust they know what's best for you. It can turn out that your heart was wrong all along."
