Marchers demand $15 minimum wage in the name of women’s rights, queer rights, climate justice

Tue, 05/23/2017 - 21:40

Marchers who fought for a $15 minimum wage during the Obama administration took to the streets again Tuesday, including President Trump with longstanding enemies like McDonalds, free markets, and capitalism.

As clear and as limited as the Constitution is in its scope, one can always find a few more rights hidden in there that the founders had intended to include. Marchers Tuesday demanded not just $15 an hour but child care, free college, immigrant rights, and more, along with freedom from hate, fascism, and the need to ever work two jobs to make ends meet.

A fair wage, a workplace free from racism & harassment, a voice in their conditions—these are the rights of all working people. #FightFor15

‘Speak for yourself’! Linda Sarsour’s plea after #ManchesterBombing is as hollow as it gets

DAFUQ? Dem candidate and FEMZILLA Brianna Wu blames SEXISM for Manchester bombing

Tue, 05/23/2017 - 20:06

Okay everyone, Democratic candidate and feminist Brianna Wu has solved the case – she knows why a monster blew himself up and killed a bunch of innocent young people (children) at an Ariana Grande concert.

And it wasn’t because of terrorism.

When a man straps on a bomb of nails, goes to woman's concert to kill an audience of women and girls – IT'S A SAFE BET SEXISM IS INVOLVED.

— Brianna Wu (@Spacekatgal) May 23, 2017

Let Brianna run for Congress they said.

It’ll be fun they said.

Frankly, if you want to pretend that violence is not about the hatred of women? I think you've got some issues you need to work out. PRONTO.

FACT: Cecile Richards just accidentally gave us ANOTHER reason to support President Trump

Tue, 05/23/2017 - 17:03

Cecile says this like it’s a bad thing.

Fact: President Trump's budget would cut PP out of all federal programs. No president has ever tried to do this. https://t.co/dulGSHjooG

— Cecile Richards (@CecileRichards) May 23, 2017

What, is Cecile trying to give us another reason to support Donald Trump or what?

From The Huffington Post:

The Trump administration’s proposed budget specifically excludes Planned Parenthood from all Department of Health and Human Services programs, apparently the first time a president’s budget has done so, according to the leaked executive summary of the plan.

Trump’s proposed fiscal 2018 budget “follows through on a campaign promise and prohibits any funding in the Labor-HHS appropriations bill for certain entities that provide abortions, including Planned Parenthood,” the executive summary says. “This prohibition applies to all funds in the bill, including Medicaid.”

No other president has ever tried to actually defund Planned Parenthood, it’s about damn time.

*snort*

@CecileRichards Excellent. Pay for your own baby parts distribution service, lobbying and contributions to Democrats.

— Tom (@BoreGuru) May 23, 2017

It’s honestly shocking that anyone would think the feds SHOULD fund a group like Planned Parenthood. Forget how many babies they kill hourly even, but why should any organization that takes money from the government be allowed to donate to politicians?

Dirty pool.

That being said, Democrats are historically the ones who receive donations from the butchers … guess which party is the one trying to keep Planned Parenthood funded?

DAAAAAMN! John Kincade levels scumbag David Leavitt, demands he remove CBS from his bio

Tue, 05/23/2017 - 16:32

As Twitchy readers know, scumbag and all-around waste of space David Leavitt was making vile jokes about the Ariana Grande concert terror attack even before we knew how many were hurt, or killed for that matter.

We did know though that there were fatalities, but that didn’t keep Leavitt from tweeting some of the most awful tweets we’ve ever seen on Twitter (and that says a lot). As soon as the tweets hit, Twitter exploded, and people were calling for his proverbial head and messaging various outlets Leavitt has listed in his bio demanding they address it.

One of those outlets was CBS, and they denied that he worked for them.

Today, John Kincade from The Fan and CBS slammed Leavitt:

Please remove @CBS from your profile @David_Leavitt
It is fake news, you don't work with us.

We’ve been questioning how Twitter verifies and why for years now …

And then last night after making a LAME ASS apology about offending people and taking the tweet down “because people asked him to,” he was right back to tweeting hot garbage.

And the Pee Wee Herman wannabe is right back to his comedic attempts. https://t.co/txwhoqnTuQ

As Twitchy reported, David Frum couldn’t wait for the bodies of the victims of the Manchester bombing to cool before her was making political statements and doing his damndest to slam Trump.

As we mourn Manchester, remember: for a moment of ignorant boasting, the president betrayed one of the West’s best sources inside ISIS.

— David Frum (@davidfrum) May 23, 2017

— Demosthenes (@Demosthenes322B) May 23, 2017

They don’t want their ‘Trump hate momentum’ to stop so Frum used a terror attack that killed young children as a hot take about intel.

Classy.

And sadly typical.

Instapundit has one important question for former CNN Director John Brennan: ‘Where was President Obama?’

— CNN (@CNN) May 23, 2017

Alrighty, then. So where was then President Obama during all of this? A really good question via Instapundit:

Where was President Obama? Golfing? Displaying "more flexibility?" https://t.co/A6dzGkUqTo

— Instapundit.com (@instapundit) May 23, 2017

Well, the best answer for Dems is that team Obama dropped the ball…

So Brennan saw all of this activity on collusion, but he, Lynch, Comey, and Obama did nothing? Who would ever believe that?

— John Cardillo (@johncardillo) May 23, 2017

…but the more likely answer is Obama ignored the threat because he thought it would help agenda. From NPR’s Phil Ewing who is calling Obama’s “looking away” a “calculated strategy”:

Picture already in place — Obama admin looked away from Russian meddling in a calculated strategy — comes ever clearer into focus.

WH thought Clinton would win. It calculated it could ignore Russian mischief b/c Obama & Kerry lusted after a Moscow deal on Syria & ISIS

— Phil Ewing (@philewing) May 23, 2017

Of course, libs are already turning Brennan’s testimony away from Obama — who had the power to do something to stop Russian — towards congressional Republicans who couldn’t do much:

Brennan: he briefed Gang of 8–including McConnell/Ryan–in Aug/Sept. that Russia intervening to help Trump. What did McConnell and Ryan do?

The progressive Left often throws the term “single payer” out there in reference to a health insurance system fully paid for by the government (taxpayers), but as much as liberals like to pretend that amounts to “free” health care for all, there still would be sticker shock:

So, Ben Shapiro just embarrassed Sally Kohn BADLY for her tweet about Trump and Netanyahu

Mon, 05/22/2017 - 18:34

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen uplifting news about America and Netanyahu. Sure, it was civil with Obama in office but it was never really as positive as it should have been considering Israel is our greatest ally in the Middle East.

So it was a breath of fresh air reading about Trump in Israel and Netanyahu’s comments:

"We appreciate the reassertion of American leadership in the Middle East" @netanyahu

— Kelly O'Donnell (@KellyO) May 22, 2017

Unless you’re a Leftist like Sally Kohn who can’t stand it that Trump has made Obama’s relationship with Netanyahu look even WORSE, if that’s even possible.

You know this is killing them.

Translation: I like having a fellow right wing extremist in the White House. https://t.co/HSYPoxGe1X

— Sally Kohn (@sallykohn) May 22, 2017

Uh oh, sounds like someone has a sad.

Funny I don't remember you saying this when Netanyahu praised Obama – or when the Iranians did. https://t.co/0D7ePQxo4i

— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) May 22, 2017

And that’s gonna leave a mark.

@sallykohn Do you ever miss the one day you were relevant in some insignificant way?
That moment passed years ago.

— Dwarfclone (@Dwarfclone) May 22, 2017

@sallykohn Do you consider yourself a left wing extremist?

— Sawyer (@hipstersawyer) May 22, 2017

Yup, and she’s probably proud of it.

@sallykohn Humor me. Try to go through a whole week without smears and name calling. Just make substantive factual arguments. I bet you can't do it.

WHOOPS: Daily Kos tries trashing Trump for exhaustion, trips over Hillary collapsing at 9/11 event

Mon, 05/22/2017 - 16:53

President Trump has been in a whirlwind of activity since taking office, so it’s no surprise that traveling around the globe is wearing on him. Of course the media likes to pretend it’s because he’s incapable of his office but even a person half his age would likely need a rest.

But go on, tell us more about his exhaustion.

30K RTs, and counting: This tweet from a CNN contributor on Ivanka Trump is the definition of ‘fake news’

Sun, 05/21/2017 - 23:25

Over 30,000 retweets, and counting, on this tweet from CNN contributor Ana Navarro alleging that Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates are pledging  $100 million pledged to the “Ivanka Fund” which she compared to the Clinton Foundation:

Ivanka Fund got $100MM pledge from Saudis & UAE.

But oops! Trump is like Hallmark cards. There's an old tweet to celebrate every occasion. pic.twitter.com/ONZzpG5hRM

— Ana Navarro (@ananavarro) May 21, 2017

This is the very definition of “fake news.” The fund is actually run by the World Bank and called the Women Entrepreneurs Fund. Ivanka Trump proposed the fund, but has absolutely nothing to do with how it’s run:

Dont let truth get in way @ananavarro. Fund run by World Bank, not Ivanka, shes not on board or soliciting funds nor hiring her ppl, but hey https://t.co/Ks2MCfkvcD

— Joe Borelli (@JoeBorelliNYC) May 21, 2017

It's hopeless. 30K retweets for Navarro's "Ivanka Fund" tweet. It's become an immortal piece of fake news https://t.co/5fvHkcmgVV

— Sohrab Ahmari (@SohrabAhmari) May 21, 2017

More from the WSJ:

Ms. Trump has made the promotion of women entrepreneurs a signature part of her focus since her father’s inauguration in January. She has advocated for issues such as paid family leave, though the issue has gained little traction in Congress. While she had proposed the idea of the World Bank fund, Ms. Trump doesn’t control it or raise money for it, one person familiar with the plans said.

Navarro followed up with a second wrong tweet, at least with respect to No. 3:

Trump attacked: 1. BO for bowing, so did Trump; 2. MO not wearing veil, neither did Melania; 3. Clinton Fndtn getting Saudi $, so did Ivanka

— Ana Navarro (@ananavarro) May 21, 2017

FWIW, if Navarro doesn’t believe us she could always turn to NPR:

Here’s a video of some people feeding a sea lion. What could go wrong?

Sun, 05/21/2017 - 22:09

You can read all about it at the Washington Post, but the TL;DR version is that a sea lion in British Columbia got pissed at this little girl as a bunch of tourists were feeding it and dragged her into the water as soon as her back was turned. Thankfully, according to the report, she wasn’t injured.

White House calling Trump ‘exhausted’ sparks ‘low energy’ and ‘stamina’ jabs from MSM

Sun, 05/21/2017 - 21:01

When asked why President Donald Trump deviated from the term “Islamist” and instead used the phrase “Islamic terror” in his speech on terrorism, the White House said the president was “exhausted.”

At a briefing with reporters a WH official said POTUS is "exhausted." https://t.co/0ll7Y4U1nt

Michael Moore gives impeachment lecture to those ‘who were SURE Hillary would win’

Sun, 05/21/2017 - 20:20

Michael Moore is back to his lecturing ways. This time, he spouting off to those who “were sure Hillary would win” last summer. He cautions them not to buy into Trump being impeached or “going down.”

Anyone who thinks Trump is going down or will be impeached is doing the same harm as those last summer who were SURE Hillary would win. STOP

— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) May 21, 2017

Then again, Trump may be gone in six months, according to Moore.

Yes, he may be gone in 6 months, but the last time people felt smug about what a loser he was he outsmarted everyone. ALL HANDS ON DECK!

‘Handicapped sociopath’: Alec Baldwin demonstrates the Dem message problem while arguing against it

Sun, 05/21/2017 - 19:32

Journalist Glenn Greenwald pointed out that while Democrats are going nuts over Trump and Russia, their constituents are more worried about issues that matter to them. This is going to present a message problem when Dems have absolutely nothing to run on, except “Trump bad!”

With DC Dems fixated on Russia, local Dem candidates struggle to find a message voters actually care about https://t.co/ZcXdxyo6Ca pic.twitter.com/3hxJRR52IS

But Alec Baldwin is not taking that thought very well.

@ggreenwald Maybe they should just run on hate and racism.
You think that'll work?

— ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) May 21, 2017

Instead of listening to the point Greenwald was trying to make, many Democrats will continue to be blinded by their irrational hatred of Donald Trump. Thus, they’ll continue to make removing him from office or completely discrediting him the goal of their political careers.

@ggreenwald Trump is an incurious, mentally handicapped sociopath. So Dems treat that how, in your mind?

The AGONY: Watch petulant Notre Dame students walk out of Mike Pence commencement speech
