The Good Ol Days...


Oh, hai. Do you remember when we decided that Jim Crow was bad and black people having rights is good? Well, don’t bother asking Trump judicial pick Wendy Vitter, nominated to a lifetime appointment at the District Court for Eastern Louisiana, a damn thing about her opinion on Civil Rights legislation. She is not here to tell you what she thinks about Brown v. Board of Education, she just wants the power to make decisions about your rights. And before you ladies get comfy thinking this is just about segregation and stuff, she also wants you to beware of Planned Parenthood.

Did you know that Planned Parenthood kills over 150,000 females per year?? Neither did we, but Wendy Vitter managed to pull that inexplicable number out of her ass and we are still not sure wtf she was talking about. Her refusal to give her opinion on abortion during the hearings is understandable, as she is a fascist forced birther and an anti birth control nazi. (She said using birth control gets women assaulted and murdered, so ... WHAT?) But why the fuck is she in secret squirrel mode about Jim Crow?

What is it about Civil Rights that caused Wendy Vitter to take a vow of silence? Senator Richard Blumenthal asked her several times and she just kept pretty much pleading the Fifth. Is there something about the idea of black and white children going to school together that she needs to meditate on for a while? Reading the words of Chief Justice Warren, I am not finding the controversy in anything he said.

We conclude that the doctrine of 'separate but equal' has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal." —Chief Justice Earl Warren

Who in their right mind can’t just go along with that? Most normal humans can say, "I think segregation is bad." But not Wendy Vitter! She is worried that if she tells you Jim Crow is bad, she might have to tell you that other things are bad, and that's a 'slippery slope' of bad bad bad.

Now, this is not the first time a Republican has had a problem with Civil Rights this decade; we all remember when Rand Paul wasn’t quite happy with the idea of forcing businesses to serve ALL of the public. But we expect insane shit from "Rand: Son of Ron" after that Aqua Buddha phase he went through in college. I will not bring up the lawn dispute because I am a very kind person.

I will bring up though her husband wearing that diaper. It really just has to be done.

Nevertheless, this is a muthafucking JUDICIAL NOMINEE for a LIFETIME appointment. I mean, it is not like she will go the fuck away after Trump retires, quits, gets impeached, or fakes his death, so, it would totally be nice to know if we should prepare ourselves for separate fountains.

Wendy Vitter wants you hysterical women and dark folks to calm the fuck down right now. Sure, it is concerning as fuck that she refuses to agree with the very legal decisions that bestowed your lovely rights upon you, but it doesn’t mean she plans on taking your rights away. She promises, pinky swears to Jesus, that she will follow the Supreme Court and uphold all laws. And since we know how trustworthy the GOP is, it’s obviously time to panic. Like right now. Right fucking now.

With the GOP fully in control of the Senate (51-49), and no filibuster on judicial nominees, it is likely that she will be confirmed with no problem. Knowing the GOP and Trump, there are many more Wendy Vitters just waiting in the wings for a chance to not tell whether they miss segregation.

We know, the thing we said in our headline is a thing you can say every day, but it's really intense today, maybe because Donald Trump is now filled with fear of the inescapable reality that millions of Americans who have not read the Mueller Report are going to see Robert Mueller testify on live TV on July 17, and Donald Trump will be exposed. Maybe the Big Mac vending machine next to his golden toilet is on the fritz and he hasn't had gotten to eat a Big Mac on the poop chair since last night. Maybe he's just a weak and sad person, a collection of shithole cells God meant to throw in the garbage, but accidentally implanted in Mary Trump's turkey incubator. We imagine that'd lead to a pretty constant state of anxiety and ennui.

Whatever it is, he's totally fucked right now. We were going to write a nice post about Trump's batshit interview on Fox Business with Maria Bartiromo, but we were busy, and by the time we got to it, he had performed so many batshit feats that we're just going to stick them all in this one post.

Let's start with the fight he's trying to wage with US soccer star Megan Rapinoe, who in a now-viral video stated that she has no fuckin' interest in going to the White House to meet that idiot. He got into a quarrel with her on Twitter ... or at least with a Twitter account that didn't belong to her. It's now been replaced, in order that the adult president may shit-tweet at the soccer superstar who hurt his feelings, but Splinter grabbed the original:

The rant continued:

Right. And Megan Rapinoe just said win or lose, she has no interest in meeting your crusty ass, because no decent American would consider that an honor.

Besides, she has already been to the White House to meet a legitimately elected president:

By the by, the owner of the incorrect Megan Rapinoe account saw Trump's whining and told him to grow a dick and set it on fire:

Ya burnt!

But as we said, it was a whole day of batshit from Trump, so let's continue.

DING DONG THE WITCH IS ... quite likely to land on her feet. But for today, the New York Times reports Dana Loesch is out of a job, the latest casualty in the war between the NRA and its longtime advertising company Ackerman McQueen. But every cloud has a silver bullet lining, since Dana will have more free time now to spend on her favorite hobby. We can't wait to see which cartoon character she photoshops Klan hoods onto next. Maybe she'll branch out and start putting Nazi armbands onto Buzz Lightyear. Oh, we would be so triggered!

As one of the most visible characters on NRATV with literal hundreds of viewers for each of her fascist rants, Dana Loesch was a tireless advocate for the gunhumpers lobby, always ready to call out "tragedy dry-humping whores," threatening to "fist" or perhaps "fisk" the New York Times, and expressing her hope that the Mueller Report would die in an "AIDS fire."
