Kellyanne Conway, on folks who say she's an idiot and a liar:
“Anybody who pretends I’m not smart or not credible, it’s like, ‘Excuse me, I’ve spoken 1.2 million words on TV, okay?’ You wanna focus on two here and two there, it’s on you, you’re a fucking miserable person, P.S., just whoever you are.”
Seriously? This moron has counted her words? This moron can count?
And that’s a lovely thing for a Catholic and mother to say about people who find her obtuse and stupid and asinine and a liar and a goosestepper in the Hate Regime.
Fuck off, Kellyanne, your Fifteen Minutes are about up.
Eric Swalwell, Democratic congressman from California, and member of the House Intelligence Committee, calling for its chairman Republican Devin Nunes, to resign:
“This was done because the White House wanted it to be done, and this is what the cover-up to a crime looks like. We are watching it play out right now. A lot of [lawmakers] have said that we don’t need an independent commission because we’re doing the work in the House committee, on the Intelligence Committee, and so that’s always been the out for not having an independent commission, [but] I’ve heard frustration that they don’t have that out anymore. So where do we go now?”
We go to an independent committee to investigate Hair Furor for treason and then jail the whole bunch ... including Nunes who colluded with _____ to save his ass.
President _____, lying about the GOP-Don't-Care Epic Fail he suffered and who was to blame:
“I think there wasn’t a speech I made or very few where I didn’t mention that perhaps the best thing that could happen is exactly what happened today, because we’ll end up with a truly great health care bill in the future after this mess known as Obamacare explodes. Obamacare was rammed down everyone’s throat, one hundred percent down their throat. [And] I never said ‘repeal and replace Obamacare’. I never said ‘repeal’ and ‘replace it’ within 64 days.”
Actually, you lying piece of sh*t, there wasn’t a speech you gave where you didn’t say Job One was to repeal and replace ACA and you couldn’t even get that done.
You lie, and you fail, and I’m sorry, but you’ll be up for elimination, er, impeachment.
Stephen Colbert, on _____'s son-in-law, Jared's Kushner's new "job" in Washington:
“Kushner’s job will be to lead a team to ‘fix government with business ideas.’ And you know he’s got great business ideas, like being born into a wealthy real estate family, or marrying into a wealthy real estate family. Why hasn’t the government tried that?”
Snap. Jared will probably join his daddy-in-law in the clink and poor little Complicit will be without her two great loves.
Devin Nunes, Republican House Intel Committee Chairman, trying to spin a _____-sized lie about the Russia scandal:
“We’re beginning to figure out who’s actually serious about the investigation because it appears like the Democrats aren’t really serious about this investigation.”
President _____, at a women’s empowerment event:
“My cabinet is full of really incredible women leaders .... Since the very beginning, women have driven, and I mean, each generation of Americans, towards a more free and more prosperous future. These patriots are women like the legendary Abigail Adams, right? Who, during the founding, urged her husband to remember the rights of women. She was very much a pioneer in that way. We’ve been blessed with courageous heroes like Harriet Tubman who escaped slavery. And went on to deliver hundreds of others to freedom, first in the underground railroad and then as a spy for the union army. She was very, very courageous, believe me. Around we’ve had leaders like Susan B. Anthony. Have you heard of Susan B. Anthony? I’m shocked that you’ve heard of her — who dreamed of a much more fair and equal future and an America where women themselves as she said helped to make laws and elect the lawmakers, and that’s what’s happening more and more.”
To be clear, the PussyGroper's cabinet is more white and more male than any cabinet since Ronald Reagan.
And I find it funny that _____ thinks if he hasn’t heard of some famous person—Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass, fer chrissakes—he thinks no one else.
Seriously, Hair Furor is one of the dumbest presidents ever.
Jack Falahee, How To get Away With Murder actor, on how playing openly gay Connor Walsh, who has an HIV-positive boyfriend, has opened his eyes to the LGBTQ struggle:
“I’m still not over how the much of an impact the show has made and a lot of that is Connor’s character and his importance to fans. It’s emblematic of my straight privilege, but I never thought his character would be so important to the LGBTQ community. ... Going into this, it was never written on the page that ‘Connor Walsh is a homosexual,’ so when it came to the first love scene I just thought, ‘Wow, this guy is willing to do whatever it takes to get ahead’ and now I know that was the heteronormativity in my mind back then that was rationalizing this whole aspect of his character. It wasn’t until [series creator] Pete Nowalk was like “Oh no, Connor is gay” that I’ve been really trying to become a student of the history of LGBTQ rights and learning more about the struggle of those in the past and in the present day. I asked my friends for a reading list on LGBTQ history because one of my favorite aspects about being an actor is that I’m continually having to learn about things I’ve been very uneducated on in the past.”
Okay, first things first, I find Jack Falahee smolderingly hot.
Secondly, I love how a straight actor, when taking on a gay role, uses that as a way to learn about the struggles of an entire community so he can bring that to the role.
Thirdly, I love how he explains his ‘heteronormativity’ and how it colored his mind into thinking Conner was straight.
Lastly, yeah he’s kinda sultry hot.
