If there is anything good that has come of Donald Trump running for President so far, it is the sheer beauty of watching Elizabeth Warren completely destroy him. She is gooooooood. God, she is so GOOD. I want to have 10,000 of her babies.


Last night, speaking at the Center for Popular Democracy's annual gala, Warren dug into Trump for his 2007 remarks to The Globe and Mail about how excited he was for the housing crash and for people to lose their homes, because "I've always made more money in bad markets than in good markets." Which is a very creepy thing to say out loud. She then went after his opposition to the Dodd-Frank regulations on Wall Street and deep sympathy for the poor little bankers affected by it, when she is pretty sure he cannot even name three things about Dodd-Frank. THEN she went after his decision to not release his taxes, which is a thing presidential candidates do, unlike releasing their "long form birth certificate" as Trump demanded of President Obama for god knows how many freaking years until Obama did and then laughed so hard at him Trump was forced to run for president.

Here, watch and DELIGHT:

If you did not have 10 minutes to watch all of that (in which case you should watch after work because honestly it is very sexy), this is what happened in that video:

 

Naturally, Trump is trying to "fire back" by criticizing her for helping people in her family buy a few cheap houses (some of which had been foreclosed on), which were fixed up by her nephew, a contractor, and then later sold.

This is, of course, a very different thing from coming out and going "OH MAN, I sure am excited for people to lose their houses! More money for me!" A very different thing altogether. People are not "bad" for fixing up houses and buying houses that are already on the market. That is not the problem, and it's hardly as though not doing that would fix anything or give anyone their house back. The problem is what happens BEFORE that happens, with the predatory lenders and bankers that Trump feels so deeply for. It is also a problem to actually delight in the idea of those people losing their houses, because that is a fairly sociopathic thing to do. And the nickname thing? SAD.

Hooray, it's time for yet another dispatch from Fox News's big fun week of failure. (No, we mean even more failure than usual.) While all of Twitter is being annoying and talking incessantly about nothing but Bran and Daenerys and Carl and Peg or whoever they are, we have been (ignoring it and) focusing on all Fox's sadness, starting with Pete Buttigieg's town hall, where he called Fox News a piece of shit to its face. Then we laughed and laughed at Fox News idiot Pete Hegseth, who is sending lots of begging to today's college graduates, that they might immediately get dropped on their heads and forget all their education, so they might grow up to be the Fox News viewers of the future.

Oh, and we haven't even had a chance to LOL at the epic hilarity of Steve Doocy trying to do man-on-the-street interviews in Midtown Manhattan, shoving the mic into the faces of New Yorkers who literally don't care if he goes and plays in traffic. That was fun!

But the point of this post is that we have finally learned what makes at least some Fox News viewers tick, and it is that Tucker Carlson "laughs like a girl." That is not us saying that, that is a Fox News fan lady telling the Washington Post's Erik Wemple why she loves Tucker Carlson so much.

Old White Guys Try To Explain Abortion

Throwing the baby out with the bathwater. It's your Sunday show rundown!

popular

Michael is out, so I'm taking over your Sunday Show Rundown. This week everyone was talking about those awful abortion laws worming their way through state legislatures. As usual, most of the men were tripping on their dicks while trying to talk about vag. Luckily, there's enough women around to ladysplain things.

Bernie Sanders went on Meet the Press for the first time in FOREVER and played his greatest hits for all the kids. Sanders criticized Joe Biden's environmental policy (which is literally just "beat Trump"), stating that it wasn't "good enough." Sanders is right! (NO FIGHTING.)

SANDERS: Beating Trump is not good enough. You have to beat the fossil fuel industry, you have to take on all the forces of the status quo who do not want to move this country to energy efficiency and sustainable energy.

But then Chuck Todd asked Bernie a loaded question about women getting "sex-selective" abortions and the whole interview went off the rails. Bernie struggled to answer the dumbass question and came across looking stupid despite having spent the better part of the last week in Alabama railing against abortion bans.
