Guy Runs Up and Dumps Bag of Pennies In Front of Minnesota Gubernatorial Candidate

News

Republican nominee for governor of Minnesota Tom Emmer supports "tip credit," the policy of most states of a lower minimum wage for waiters because they make tips, but he made the mistake of saying waiters are making $100,000 a year in tips and hurting their employers. That angered waiters and such, so he had to hold a town hall meeting for them. And some guy wearing a messenger bag came up anddropped an NPR tote full of 2,000 pennies in front of the guy.


The smug look and then pennies happen at 0:35 or so in this video:

Haha, hockey! Nice comeback. Hockey players are best known for never jumping.

The pennies were supposed to be a "tip" for Emmer, don't you see? No you probably don't. What?

Yes, this doesn't make a lot of sense, but it is generally a fun idea to dump 20 bucks worth of change in front of your nearest politician. This should be a YouTube meme. This should be the new bro icing.

Can you imagine dumping a bag of pennies on, say, Daniel Inouye? Yes, as that is a video that will appear on the Wonkette YouTube account next week. "Hey Coinstar, eat my pennies!" Hah. [TPM]

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?

Russia

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."
