Poot Lips.


Wonkers, we have learned our lesson. It is sexist to get mad at Sarah Huckabee Sanders for being an asshole or constantly lying to the American people, and we don't want to offend the woke feminists who populate right-wing comments sections anymore. So "POOT LIPS" it is! And, just to clarify, that insult means "Sanders is being an asshole or (and) lying to the American people, which makes her mouth words sound like a poot squeaker!"

In case you didn't know, Donald Trump, racial uniter, is going to Jackson, Mississippi, this weekend for the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum, because SOMEBODY with their head up their ass (Mississippi wingnut Governor Phil Bryant) thought that was a good idea. People are pissed, because it's an insult to the entire struggle for civil rights for Donald Trump, a white supremacist who thinks some of the Charlottesville Nazis fighting to save Confederate traitor statues were lovely people, to be anywhere NEAR such an event. The NAACP is pissed. Local organizers are pissed. (We, a Southern white man who lives not far away, are pissed.) And Civil Rights hero Congressman John Lewis is pissed too! He and Rep. Bennie Thompson are in fact so pissed that they've decided to skip the event entirely.

So Sanders opened her mouth about it, and POOT LIPS came out:

"We think it's unfortunate that these members of Congress wouldn't join the President in honoring the incredible sacrifice civil rights leaders made to right the injustices in our history," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Thursday. "The President hopes others will join him in recognizing that the movement was about removing barriers and unifying Americans of all backgrounds."

Dave Weigel already had the only proper reaction to that statement, so we'll just paste that:

WHAT A POOT LIPS.

Wonkette apologizes for our previous slander of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, whose name is POOT LIPS from now on. We'll try to be nicer about CAPTAIN POOT LIPS.

Open thread. Go!

PS: POOT LIPS!

Are you a good Wonker who sends us money by Amazon? Well not anymore you're not, since Amazon COINCIDENTALLY stopped accepting our payments shortly after Evan's VERY SEXIST Sanders post came out. Would you be so great as to re-sign with Paypal or Stripe? K we love you bye.

Alex Díaz de la Portilla on Facebook

Alex Díaz de la Portilla, former Florida Republican state senator, is in hot water over a leaked WhatsApp chat log that appears to show campaign workers chatting about destroying or disappearing absentee ballots filled out for the candidate's opponent in the nonpartisan county election, according to the Miami New Times. Díaz de la Portilla ultimately came in third in the May 2018 special election for a seat on the Miami-Dade County Commission, so even if some of his people did deep-six some ballots, it didn't apparently help him. Clearly, these pikers could have learned a lot from the experts in North Carolina about electoral fuckery.

Still, you have to appreciate just how brilliantly Díaz de la Portilla plays the role of a local pol accused of just a teensy bit of ratfucking.

Under the Trump administration, the Environmental "Protection" Agency has adopted the vital mission of doing everything it can to prop up the dying coal industry, largely because 1) Coal CEO Robert Murray is among Donald Trump's best billionaire buds and 2) every last trace of Barack Obama's presidency must be eradicated. To that end, the New York Times reports the EPA is now planning to "change how it calculates the health risks of air pollution," to make it easier to reverse Obama's "Clean Power Plan" regulations and replace them with far dirtier air, for coal company fun and profit. It's remarkably similar to another bit of EPA fuckery from December, when the agency decided it was no longer "appropriate and necessary" to regulate mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants, claiming that the costs of regulating the neurotoxin was very very burdensome and wouldn't provide any real savings by comparison. In both cases, fucking around with the math and redefining pollutants as No Big Deal are at the heart of the agency's claims that coal plants can spew more pollution without doing any harm.

Now, before you freak out, we will not be making you do math. Stop whining, you. Rather, we just want to highlight once again how Team Trump changes the definitions of things to give a great big benefit to dirty energy while insisting that it's "protecting" the environment.
