Jodie Foster, on how women are questioning past behaviors in the wake of #MeToo and how having an industry-savvy mother may have protected her from Hollywood’s abusers:
“I don’t think there is a woman I know, who doesn’t look back on when they were 15, 16, 17 or 18, who doesn’t put their hand on their head and say: ‘Why did I do that? Why was I like that? Why wasn’t I confident? Why didn’t I say no?’ …. The weird cauldron that made me – working from the time I was three years old, supporting my family by the time that I was seven, super-strong mom, over-confident personality, celebrity young enough that I learned to be stand-offish … I think there’s a whole bunch of reasons why I didn’t have the same path as someone who came to Hollywood at 22 with two cents in her pocket and just wanted more than anything else to be an actor; it’s just a different life.”
Woman are learning that they have the power. The power of ‘No’.
Michelle Wolf, on _____’s Supreme Court nomination and the presumed attack on Roe V Wade from a group of Pro-Life hypocrites:
“It’s so ironic that Trump could be the guy that ends legal abortion. That dude has been responsible for more abortions than the invention of back alleys … We were originally gonna use coat hangers. And before that, stairs.”
Women, and men, need to fight this every which way we can.
, Fox News host and Junior’s current mistress, on outspoken liberals:
“Who are these jokers? You see them on television, and they have a blog, and everyone thinks they’re a journalist, and they’re a joke. They’re provocateurs. They have no substance and no meat, let alone any intellect. It’s unbelievable in this day and age anyone calls themselves a journalist because they can post something on the Internet. I just take issue with people who are complete liars and smear merchants and say things that are not true, and they know that they’re not true, and some of these people need to get a beatdown, and I’m happy to give it to them.”
Wow; so this woman, stupid enough to break up with Gavin Newsom and take up with that oil slick of a piece of trash, thinks people who disagree with her, people who stand up for themselves, deserve a “beat down.”
Sit in a corner until your next trick comes along.
Bill Maher, on, ahem, _____’s dick:
“Although honestly, doesn’t everything about this man just scream microdick? The bragging, and the buildings with my name on it! And the debates. He was talking about his dick at the debates! That guy is president. Remember that?”
And let’s not forget that he actually is a dick.
Elizabeth Warren, on _____’s bullying:
"I can handle a bully. But here’s the really creepy part: In the same breath, he mocked the entire #MeToo movement. He mocked women who are bravely coming forward and saying that they’ve been harassed and abused by guys just like Donald _____. [He] isn’t just trying to scare me—he's trying to bully all women and make us all shut up. He still doesn't think guys like him should be held accountable for what they say or do. You know what, Donald? You don't scare us. Women fight back. Women vote, organize marches, knock on doors, make phone calls, run for office – and win. We'll sweep your Republican enablers out of office this November. And that means, all hands on deck. Use the ballot to stop the patriarchal fascist white supremacists who want to loot the economy and rape Mother Earth."
And cast a goddamned vote!
Stephen Colbert, celebrating the news from Thailand that the 12 boys and their soccer coach were rescued from a flooded cave … and taking a jab at _____:
”All 12 Thai boys and their coach have been rescued from the cave that they were trapped in for more than two weeks. That feels good. In fact, it’s a great story that gives everyone hope. And it reminds us of the importance of permission slips for field trips to flooded caves. Everybody loves this story. Are you listening, Mr. President? Freeing children makes people like you!”
Ah, but those aren’t immigrant boys.
_____ hates immigrants, unless he marries one to give her a green card and get her parents into the country.
Sarah Palin, quitter, on being duped into giving an interview to comedian Sacha Baron Cohen for his new program on Showtime:
“Yup — we were duped. Ya’ got me, Sacha. Feel better now? I join a long list of American public personalities who have fallen victim to the evil, exploitive, sick ‘humor’ of the British ‘comedian’ Sacha Baron Cohen, enabled and sponsored by CBS/Showtime. This ‘legit opportunity’ to honor American Vets and contribute to a ‘legit Showtime historical documentary’ was requested of me via a speakers bureau. Out of respect for what I was led to believe would be a thoughtful discussion with someone who had served in uniform, I sat through a long ‘interview’ full of Hollywoodism’s disrespect and sarcasm—but finally had enough and literally, physically removed my mic and walked out, much to Cohen’s chagrin.”
She’s just mad because, once again, she’s shown the world how stupid she is; this isn’t the first time Palin was duped by the media, but since she’s such a famewhore, she’s now trying to turn it into another ‘Look at me’ moment.
Larry Kramer, saying, for gays, the worst is yet to come:
“We’ve come a certain distance from such a blanket suffocation. But by the time a modicum of acceptance by the outside world starts to arrive, we are visited with a plague. It is a plague of disease, and with our new president it continues to be a plague of hate. There is not one cabinet member who has supportive or welcoming words for us. Every week, it seems, Mr. _____ appoints another judge who is on record as hating us. They will serve for many years. A new Supreme Court will further echo this disdain.”
All the more reason to vote blue, and only blue, for years to come.
