WTF is that? Is it white-splaining? Is it douche-splaining? Is it DEUCE-BIGALOW-MALE-GIGOLO-SPLAINING?

So actor Rob Schneider, whom yr Wonkette remembers from basically nothing, because he isn't that funny, said that thing on Twitter, obviously drawing on his deep, abiding experience fighting for civil rights alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

What, you don't remember? Is this not a historical picture?

FOOLED YOU. (If you're an idiot.) That is actually not a history picture. You were thinking of this picture, probably:

That, of course, is Rep. John Lewis, who marched with Dr. King, was arrested a million times during the Civil Rights Movement, was one of the original Freedom Riders, was beaten and had his skull fractured on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, on Bloody Sunday. Shall we go on?

Rob Schneider is the guy who suddenly appears in Adam Sandler movies, for some reason. He is also a Republican, as if you couldn't figure that out from the tone-deaf tweet pasted above.

He is this guy:

Anyway, this is all because John Lewis called Donald Trump an illegitimate president, which led the vulgar talking yam (TM Charlie Pierce, but you can't copyright THE TRUTH) to tweet about how over-rated Lewis is, yadda yadda, you know the drill by now.

And now we get to listen to Rob Schneider giving some gentle "YOU CAN DO EET!" advice to Congressman Lewis about how it's super cool to fight for civil rights or whatever, but can you please be a little less of a sad, angry black dude about it? Because Dr. King was never, ever righteously angry, at least not in the vivid imaginations of the white conservatives who JUST FUCKING LOVE to try to co-opt his legacy and turn him into just the cuddliest little civil rights activist ever, not like that naughty Malcolm X or those scary Black Panthers!

Obviously, we blame Rob Schneider for this, because he's a fucking tool who needs to shut his mouth, but we also blame Twitter, because if Twitter did not exist, we wouldn't know what Shithead Trump thought about John Lewis, and we definitely wouldn't know what kind of #MLKThoughts were percolating in the small brain of the dude from "The Hot Chick."

For Christ's sake.

There was a time, a few months ago, when everyone had written off Elizabeth Warren. Well, not me, because I am a fabulous genius, but lots of other people. The "very reasonable" talking heads on all the various news channels, the kind of people who used to say things like "Oh, we'd like universal health care too, but 'the people' will never go for it!" but who definitely did not actually want universal health care for any reason, and even the Trump campaign. Though, to be fair, the Trump campaign didn't think Trump had much of a chance of winning in 2016 either.

But now, as more and more people hear her speak, hear her plans, hear what she wants to do and how she wants to do it... Elizabeth Warren is rising up in the polls. She's a contender. In the most recent Quinnipiac poll, she was closing in on Sanders for second place nationally, and in California and Nevada polls, she's in second place.

And now, according to a report from Politico, the Trump campaign is now scrambling and panicking and... stalking her?
