On Wednesday, you may recall, there was some gunplay in Canada, which was terrible and wrong because the shooting was done by a bad guy with a gun, who was then stopped by a good guy -- actually a pretty awesome guy -- with a gun. And people wrote all kinds of things about it on the Twitterbox, as one does. Unfortunately, one of the people who went and had an opinion about it was swimsuit model person Chrissy Teigen, who wrote the most OUTRAGEOUSLY INSANE thing about guns ever:


The internet being the internet, of course, Umbrage was Taken on a number of fronts. Some people were offended that she would joke about an Act of Terrorism, while others were Shocked And Disgusted that she would speak against The Gun, for The Gun is Good and brings only freedom and safety.

And so the Twittosphere made it clear that the dumb bitch should shut up, get killed, and rot in hell, which at least indicates a sense of linear narrative:

After a few more death threats, Teigen said the hell with it and announced she was done with twitterz for a while.

Fortunately, Fox News anchorbileduct Andrea Tantaros was able to put things in perspective, explaining that by suggesting America has a lot of shootings or something, Teigen had just harmed herself and reinforced an unfortunate stereotype. It's just inappropriate to talk about guns right after a shooting -- or right before one, for that matter, or in between them. Doesn't this dumb model have any respect?

“Chrissy Teigen is known for, obviously, her lovely bottom, and her food Instagram pictures. She should stick to that.”

“This is the problem when models start to talk,” Tantaros added. “They play into that dumb model stereotype. Because it’s too soon for her to weigh in. And also, conflate gun control, and crime in America with a global war against radical Islamic jihadism.”

“She clearly doesn’t know about the radical Islamic threat to the nation, she hasn’t educated herself. When she does stuff like this, you’ve just got to shake your head.”

Indeed. We are definitely shaking our heads right now, in fact.

As any idiot can plainly see, the callipygian Teigen shouldn't have compared a mindless outburst of gun violence in Canada to an average Wednesday in U.S. America. She should have compared it to a Friday in a small city near Seattle.

DHS photo (Every damn ICE pic looks like this)

Donald Trump's immigration goon squads were all set to start mass arrests and deportations of families in multiple cities Sunday, but before the raids started, he tweeted Saturday that he'd decided to delay the operation by two weeks -- to allow Democrats a chance to join Republicans in trashing US asylum law. Trump took a phone call Friday evening from Nancy Pelosi urging him to hold off on the raids, although it's also possible that internal disagreements about the operation at the Department of Homeland Security may have been part of the reason for the delay, too. In the meantime, Trump gets to terrify undocumented families some more and rant about deporting "millions," although the planned operation was actually targeted only at a couple thousand people who have already received deportation orders.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement had been gearing up to start raids in 10 US cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, and Baltimore, to show how tough America is, and never mind that the sweeps would certainly have led to more family separations, as ICE scooped up at least some undocumented parents of children born in the US. The news also comes while the media is reporting filthy, inhuman conditions at the border camps where newly arrested immigrants, including babies, are being packed in, leading to plenty of awkward questions about why the government suddenly wants to arrest more people in the interior of the country? (Hint: President Eichmann just announced his reelection bid.)

The Great Deporter announced the delay of the operation Saturday by Twitter, as if that were normal, then followed up with more bluster Sunday.

Kamala Harris was holding it down at the South Carolina Democratic Convention this weekend, and she wasn't just there to kick it at Clyburn's Fish Fry, hang out with Berndog Sanders, and just look extra good. No. She fucking running for President, and she's actually got a chance, unlike the many Mayo Casserole Men who keep jumping into the damn race. Why did they jump in after Kamala and Elizabeth Warren, the only people who are even running, clearly said, "We got it from here, boys"? Not sure, but regardless, it was unnecessary. Doesn't matter anyway because who is gonna remember Dadface McDorksky when Kamala is turning it the fuck out with speeches indicting Trump?

Do you believe in America? Kamala Harris believes in America, and her Saturday speech calls out for justice, and righteousness; where Barack Obama struck hopeful, dulcet, aspirational tones, Harris strikes sharp chords of urgency. To say that she read Trump the riot act would be, and is, an understatement; what she did here raised a crucial reality that some Dems refuse to see. Trump MUST be prosecuted. The Democratic nominee will wear many hats, and one of the most important of those hats is that of a prosecutor. There is a case to be made against Donald J. Trump, hell, there are so many cases, and as far as Harris is concerned, who better to make that case, but a COP? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
