I Didn't Say It ...

Bernie Sanders, on the shooting this week in DC and the idea that the shooter was a Sanders supporter:

“I have just been informed that the alleged shooter at the Republican baseball practice is someone who apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign. I am sickened by this despicable act. Let me be as clear as I can be: Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms.”

And for those out there seeking to blame Bernie, or the Democrats, y’all need to take a seat.
This is about a disenfranchised man who had serious issues and felt the only way he could fix it was with a gun.
And that says volumes about America.
Tony Perkins, spokestool of the Hate Group Family Research Council, blaming the shooting on ... Obama:

"The cloud of vitriol that grew under Barack Obama has so poisoned our dialogue that it may have once again driven a man to target innocent people—this time public servants whose only crime was gearing up for one of the few moments of comradery and bipartisanship left in the city. ... This is where the path of intolerance can lead. And in a country spewing inflamed rhetoric from Broadway to the Beltway, it’s time for reasonable people to step in and say, ‘enough.’”

I think he may be right. I mean, remember Obama saying Mexicans were rapists? Oh, wait, that hate was from _____.
Well, remember when Obama said Muslims are terrorists? Oh, wait, that hate was from _____.
Well, howsabout the time Obama told his supporters to “beat the crap” out of anyone who dared protest him. Yeah, again, that was _____.
Tony Perkins, as usual, has his head shoved so far up his own hate-filled ass he can’t see the hatful rhetoric is coming from his beloved _____.
Ivanka ‘Complicit’ _____, on FOX & Friends, on life in the White House being hard:

“It is hard. There is a level of viciousness that I was not expecting. I was not expecting the intensity of this experience. But this isn’t supposed to be easy. My father and this administration intends to be transformative. And we want to do big bold things. And we’re looking to change the status quo. So I didn’t expect it to be easy. I think that some of the distractions and some of the ferocity I was a little blindsided by on a personal level.”

Really, honey? Which viciousness? When your Daddy said he wanted to grab women by the pussy and you stayed silent?
When your Daddy mocked a disabled man and you said nothing?
When you Daddy fueled the fires of racism to get elected and you went shopping?
Sit the fuck down. You are as despicable as your father because silence equals acquiescence.
Anderson Cooper, on Kathy Griffin and that photo:

“I had nothing to do with [firing Griffin], but I certainly understand why they made that decision. And look, I wish her well and I hope she bounces back and keeps doing what she does best, which is make people laugh.”

I hope she bounces back, too, but I also hope she thinks twice about some of these stunts because all she does is rile up the _____’s base.
Megyn Kelly, on the criticism over her upcoming interview with lunatic Alex Jones—who called the murder of children at Sandy Hook Elementary a ‘hoax’:

“I find Alex Jones’s suggestion that Sandy Hook was ‘a hoax’ as personally revolting as every other rational person does. It left me, and many other Americans, asking the very question that prompted this interview: How does Jones, who traffics in these outrageous conspiracy theories, have the respect of the president of the United States and a growing audience of millions?”

But go on and give him a larger pulpit from which to feed the hate and the other lunatics, Megyn.
Perhaps you might have thought of doing a story on his antics, and how the fucking President of the United States listens to this loon, rather than give him a soapbox.
But, hey, Megyn, you gotta earn that paycheck, right?
PS A day after this story broke, an anti-gun group created by family members of Sandy Hook victims dropped Megyn Kelly as a host of its annual gala.
You know, because she’s perpetuating, for ratings and coins, lunacy.
Mama Grizzly Bore™, who was, perhaps wrongly, blamed when Representative Gabby Giffords was shot several years ago, standing up for Bernie Sanders in the wake of this latest shooting:

“Those seeking political advantage reacted so recklessly and irresponsibly the last time a member of Congress was brutally attacked, as media inexplicably played a knee-jerk blame game assuming that attacker’s motives. Today’s shooter appears to be a Bernie Sanders supporter and campaign volunteer. But Bernie Sanders is not to blame. Maybe the media have matured enough to allow coverage of this most recent violence to focus on facts, because media integrity will be crucial as America witnesses today’s events unfolding and, on behalf of our Congressional Representatives, we all seek justice.”

What the what? MGB™ actually made sense there. Has Hell frozen over?
Probably not, because the wingnuts over at Breitbart are now going after the MGB™ full throttle.
Patti LuPone, on the red carpet at last weekend’s Tony Awards, was asked why she said that, if _____ came to see her in War Paint, she’d take the night off:

“Because I hate the motherf***er. How’s that?”

God. I.Love.La.LuPone!

MGB sounds apolitical for once, good for her; long may that continue.

Tim and I have been discussing the need for the name of a new medical syndrome we've been seeing late. A name for the Irony Deficient. Kinda like anemia, but different.

Tony Perkins needs to get a new rug, that Opie doo just ain't doing any more. As for Megyn Kelly? She will always be a bimbo waiting outside the gates of intelligence.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Don't mince words, Patti LuPone -- what do you REALLY think? LOL!

OM (short for oh my) but not OMG :)
Ivanka looks like a Stepford Wife.
Yeah to Patti.
