Just Look At This Asshole: Trump Official's Wife So Sad She Can't Use Racial Slurs

Post-Racial America
HappyHousewivesClub

This week, because I need a bit of a break from the Manosphere, I have decided to revive my old "Just Look At This Asshole" rubric from my days at The Frisky -- which I figure can now do because that entire website has been wiped from the face of the internet along with everything I ever wrote there. It was devastating (for me, anyway), but every cloud must have a silver lining, and I have decided that this is it. Also, this rubric is nice and gender neutral, which is convenient because we have a really terrible lady to talk about this week.


SO! Let's talk about Darla Shine, the Marabel Morgan-esque wife of Bill Shine, the former Fox News co-president who has just joined the Trump administration as its new communications chief. Bill, as you may recall, got shitcanned from Fox News last year due to his enabling of Roger Ailes' happy hands. Darla is a stay-at-home mom with a poorly written blog called "Darla Shine's Happy Housewives Club" -- which so far seems to just be a bunch of pictures of pin-up girls dressed as housewives, recipes for salad and a poorly written rant about the Real Housewives. She also claims on this blog that stay-at-home-moms are "the most disrespected" people in America, which does not seem to be a true statement by any stretch of the imagination.

However, her 1950s fetish goes beyond the Sexxxy Donna Reed costumes and love of the patriarchy, as she is also a super wacky racist. Oh, and she's an anti-vaxxer, and sometimes combines the racism and the anti-vaxxer stuff in rather unusual and unexpected ways.

Although Darla deleted her Twitter account after her husband's appointment, Mediaite managed to get a bunch of screenshots beforehand. And boy, are they ever precious!

Darla is also very upset that she cannot rap along with Kanye, because if she says the n-word people will think she is a racist. Oddly enough, this clearly was not a concern of hers when posting literally everything else she ever posted on social media.

This is apparently a very big concern of hers, judging by her approximately 80,000 other tweets about it.

"Take the N word out of the music – don't want to feel guilty for singing songs with the N word in it."
"Al Sharpton demanding kid Rock denounce Rebel Flag yet Sharpton not demanding Rappers remove N word from music."
"The recurring verse in Trinidad James rap song is the n word over and over. I can buy, but I can't sing out or then I'm am a racist?"
"Take the N word, and the C word, and the B word out of lyrics."
"Don't use the N word in your songs if you don't want your teenage listeners to repeat it out loud. Clean up the music! Set an example."
"@seanhannity @Theblacksphere I never have said the N word out loud and my white children have never either. Blacks stop using the N word!"
"Funny how critics calling to ban Gone With the Wind, Jefferson Memorial, but no talk of banning the N word or Rap songs with N word in it."
"Remove every rap song that has the N word in it. Take them off the air. If we ban Gone with the Wind, racist rap music goes too."
"Will Sharpton threaten rappers to remove N word from their music?"
"Rebel Flag off State Buildings in SC but cop killer rap songs, songs about rape, and songs with N word continue to play on the radio."
"I have never said the N word out loud and my white children have never either. Blacks stop using the N word!"

This, of course, has much less to do with any objection to the word itself, but a resentment of the fact that black people can say it and she can't. It is about power. It is about a deep-seated fear of black people having something that she doesn't get to have. It is also about silencing black artists and black voices. Duh. She's well aware of this herself, because if she didn't think there was anything wrong with saying these things, she would not have deleted them off of her social media as soon as her husband joined the Trump administration. It is also fair to say that her husband likely shares her views -- given her "traditional beliefs," if he thought her views might hurt his reputation, he would probably tell her to stop and she would go along with him. Clearly, he did not!

Anyway, this is now your open thread! Enjoy, and if you can, tip us on the way out!

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?
