Who's Trump Trying To Get Killed Today? Doctors, Nurses, New Moms Get Your Bulletproof Vests

Culture Wars

Donald Trump gave one of his 50 minutes of hate rallies in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Saturday night. It was his usual marathon of lies with no bathroom breaks. He slimed Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers for refusing to sign a ridiculous "don't kill babies" bill with a "stop beating your wife" rider. Then he reprised his grossest lie yet about how women are murdering their newborn babies for spit and giggles.

TRUMP: The baby is born. The mother meets with the doctor. They take care of the baby. They wrap the baby beautifully.

At this point, Trump even demonstrates rocking a baby, which he's heard is something parents do with their kids.

TRUMP: And then the doctor and the mother determine whether or not they will execute the baby.

"Execute," he says. We're surprised he didn't go with "whack." Yes, the president claims that gangland slayings of children occur routinely in hospitals. (They don't.) The crowd boos — not him or his vicious lies but the women they believe are psychotic enough to do this before heading off to their mani/pedi appointment. It's chilling.

People without medical training or common sense suggested Governor Ralph "Jazz Singer" Northam had advocated "infanticide" in a radio interview last January. Anti-choice ghouls in politics seized on this as the perfect weapon in their war against women's bodily autonomy. They don't care that it's all vile, disgusting, offensive lies.

"Blood libel" was the antisemitic lie that Jews were killing Christian children and using their blood in religious ceremonies. It was a major theme of Jewish persecution in Europe. History demands we call out these dehumanizing lies for what they are. Unfortunately, the media insists on enabling them.

Politicians make "false claims" or misleading statements all the time. Some classic ones: George H.W. Bush said "read my lips, no new taxes," and then later raised taxes. Bill Clinton said he didn't have "sexual relations with that woman." George W. Bush said Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. Barack Obama promised that if you "like your health care plan, you can keep it" under the Affordable Care Act, which according to some factcheckers was the greatest lie OF ALL TIME. Trump himself falsely claimed that Mexico would pay for WALL.

Trump however is outright lying about abortion. He's doing so maliciously. He seeks to score political points at the expense of women and medical providers. Nutjobs already shoot doctors who perform abortions. They blow up clinics with pregnant women inside. Trump's setting off his own rhetorical bombs and doesn't care who gets caught in the blast.

Here is a woman on Twitter explaining about those "executions" on the bereavement team in the NICU.

That woman's life is now in danger, along with her colleagues helping parents through the worst day of their life, with little footprints and memory boxes and specially made "angel dresses" for babies born without brains or lungs, who would have only moments to live in their mothers' arms, skin to skin.

Meanwhile, the paper of Paul Anka records left no euphemism unturned.

"Inaccurate Refrain"? That sounds like an unreleased Depeche Mode song. Trump is a lying liar who lies. Why is this so difficult to say? Maggie Haberman at the New York Times did call out Trump for lying recently, but he'd gone so far as to impugn their stellar reporting practices. He didn't simply accuse them of homicide.

Trump lies callously and cruelly. Republicans don't challenge Trump's lies, either. They promote them. Steve Scalise was shot by a real gun with real bullets, not any imaginary bogeyman. The congressman was still in the ICU when Republicans linked his shooting to any liberal criticism of the president, as well as Barack Obama, who was no longer even president. Now, Scalise is happily shoveling Trump's horseshit.

We can't speak for all Republicans, but we are fairly certain Trump hasn't a single fuck to give about abortion or babies, viable or otherwise. His reptile brain understands that the repeated "infanticide" claim appeals to people who desperately want to believe a complex issue is as simple as their own minds. They don't like Democrats or frankly women all that much and are fine with thinking the worst of them. It's how dehumanization works.

The media needs to plainly and unambiguously state that the president of the United States is a liar. Because that's what he is. It's vital to democracy and our sanity that we know what we're facing. Otherwise, Trump will ride his repulsive lies to re-election, and the truth can only just "limp along" after him.

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."

'Baby Geniuses' star Jon Voight took to Twitter early this morning to proclaim his undying love for Donald Trump, probably because there is no one left in his life who will listen to him talk about this, or anything else, in person. In this video rant, Voight encouraged members of the Republican Party, whom he apparently thinks are the only real citizens of the United States, to stand by Donald Trump and "acknowledge the truth" that he is the best President since Abraham Lincoln.

Part ONE:

People of the Republican Party, I know you will agree with me when I say our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy. For he's battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. I've said this once and I'll say this again. That our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers, and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln. I'm here today to acknowledge the truth, and I'm here today to tell you my fellow Americans that our country…

Oh no, not our absurd words of destruction!

Part DEUX:

is stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our President has made his every move correct. Don't be fooled by the political left, because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president. Let us stand up for this truth, that President Trump is the greatest president since President Lincoln.

Does Jon Voight not know there have been... other presidents? Can he name them? Because really, it does not sound like it. Does he also not know that a very big chunk of the Republican Party actually does not care very much for Abraham Lincoln? Namely those defenders of Confederate statues that Trump called "very fine people?" Also, did he intentionally diss their beloved Ronald Reagan?

Who can know? Who can even tell what he is trying to say or why he is trying to say it. He doesn't appear to have tweeted much since 2016, so I'm guessing whoever's job it was to keep him from tanking his career quit. Either that... or after filming the seventh season of Ray Donovan, he found out it's going to be canceled or his character is getting killed off or something and he is now free to be a jackass? I don't know, I haven't watched the show, although my parents are very into it and mad that I haven't watched it. Literally all I know about it is that it has something to do with Boston, because they keep mentioning that to me like it's a selling point.

It seems useless at this point to note that the people who scream their faces off about how bad it is for Hollywood celebs to support liberal causes, and how they should keep their politics to themselves, etc. etc. make a way bigger deal than normal people do whenever a Big Time Hollywood Celebrity like Jon Voight or, uh, Scott Baio, supports their cause. Mostly because they're the only ones who have elected a reality TV star and the star of Bedtime for Bonzo (who by the way, also once practically ruined a perfectly good Bette Davis movie with his bad acting. Which is not to say that Dark Victory is not fantastic and probably the best thing to watch if you want to sob your face off, but he was very bad in it.) to run the country.

But we might as well do that anyway, because it actually never stops being funny.
