Don Lemon, on Kanye West’s insane visit with _____:
“I have no animosity for Kanye West. I’m just going to be honest and I may get in a lot of trouble for it. I actually feel bad for him. What I saw was a minstrel show today. Him in front of all these white people, mostly white people, embarrassing himself and embarrassing Americans, but mostly African-Americans, because every one of them is sitting either at home or with their phones, watching this, cringing. Kanye needs help, this has nothing to do with being liberal or a conservative. We have to stop pretending… like this is normal.”
Kanye gets a pass because people call his madness ‘genius.’
An off his meds genius?
Steve Cortes, pro-_____ commentator, refuting Lemon’s assertions:
“You know, Don, you said this meeting was embarrassing. I think quite frankly what’s embarrassing is the condescension you’ve shown to Kanye West, someone who I think is a brave, independent thinker, a creative genius. Does he speak in a different vernacular? Of course he does like a lot of artists. It’s one I don’t always understand but I do understand he’s a great thinker. And for you and a lot of guests to dismiss him as a ‘token negro’ and question his mental stability when you’re not doctors, you haven’t examined him, I think is really unfortunate. And it’s an example unfortunately that is all too common on the left which is liberal- when a minority doesn’t tow the party line, they are vilified and dismissed … You said earlier today this was a minstrel show …I mean, could you be any more condescending to this man?”
I love the fact that he calls Kanye a great thinker but that he doesn’t understand the things Kanye says.
Part of being a great thinker is making yourself understood.
Jimmy Kimmel, on _____’s op-ed for USA Today which was riddled with lies and misleading claims about his promise to remove Obamacare and replace it with “something” better:
“You didn’t keep that promise. That promise was forced on you because John McCain gave you the finger and so you weren’t able to not keep that promise. That’s not keeping a promise. And yes, rates will go down in some states but they would have gone down even further in all states if you and your buddies hadn’t spent the last year trying to cripple the plan we have now. This is claiming you saved people from drowning after you put a hole in the side of the ship. It’s just a lie. It’s another lie.”
Remember, _____ said, before and after the election, that he would repeal Obamacare and replace it with something else.
He repealed it, but there is no replacement. And now he and the GOP are trying to kill Medicare and Medicaid to pay for the huge deficit they caused.
How’s that working out for you?
Lindsey Graham, South Carolina … I’m sorry…GOP Senator, responding to a Tweet from comic Chelsea Handler suggesting that he’s gay:
“It’s a free country, you can say what you want to say, I don’t care. I don’t think much about what she says at all. If she wants to live her life that way. It’s up to her. To the extent that it matters, I’m not gay … Belittling people is not as funny as it used to be, and that’s a good thing.”
So, calling someone gay is belittling them, Miss Lindsey?
Take a seat you pandering fuckmonkey.
Colin Powell, former Secretary of State, saying _____ cannot a moral leader because his mantra is “Me the President":
"My favorite three words in our Constitution is the first three words—'We the People.' 'We the People.' But recently it's become 'me the president,' as opposed to 'We the People.' And you see things that should not be happening. How can a president of the United States get up and say that the media is the enemy of Americans? Hasn't he read the First Amendment? You're not supposed to like everything the press says or what anyone says in the First Amendment. And I hope the president can come to the realization that he should really stop insulting people. And I used this two years ago when I said I could not vote for him in the 2016 election—and why? He insulted everybody … [African Americans, immigrants, women and his fellow candidates for president.]”
As I have said since2016, _____ has never done anything in his life that didn’t benefit him first and foremost, and those of you who didn’t see that and voted for him, are to blame for this mess.
Nicolle Wallace, chief political analyst for MSNBC , reminding every single Republican candidate who links themselves to _____ is tied to his misogyny:
“If misogyny is your thing. It’s on the ballot this November in the form of every Republican candidate. Who associates himself or her herself with Donald _____’s name calling. Which seems to focus most intensely and most frequently on women. Women who challenge him or threaten him or heaven forbid insult him. Today’s installment of Donald _____’s denigration of women came in the form of a tweet about Stormy Daniels, president tweeting this, “Federal judge throws out stormy Daniels’ lawsuit versus _____. _____ is entitled to full legal fees. At Fox News, great, now I can go after horseface and her third-rate lawyer in the great state of Texas. She’ll confirm the letter she signed. She knows nothing about me. A total con.” Horseface. The President Of The United States called a woman with whom he had an alleged sexual relationship horse face. Unfortunately, it’s the kind of insult, personal, childish and mean, that people have become so accustomed to with this president that it barely registered as news, but it renders the first lady’s “Be best” campaign, anti-bullying effort, pointless and satirical and Ivanka’s _____ stated mission of being some sort of an ambassador for women a pointless joke. How could these women or any woman in the White House pretend they work for anyone other than a very loud-mouthed and very thin-skinned bully? It also shows that bashing women, even an alleged victim of a sexual assault, is more than a quirk to _____’s personality. It’s a political strategy he thinks is a winner.”
If you see a crime and say nothing, you are aiding and abetting a crime, an accomplice of sorts.
When Republicans, and some Democrats, say nothing about the vile things _____ has said about women, they are implying that they stand with him.
Stephen Colbert, on the war of words between _____ and Stormy after a judge threw out a defamation case filed by the adult film actress:
“The judge’s reasoning for why he threw the case out is—it’s a little upsetting. _____ called Stormy a liar on Twitter, but Judge S. James Otero ruled that _____’s speech was protected by the First Amendment because, he said, it was the kind of ‘rhetorical hyperbole’ normally associated with politics and public discourse in the United States. [But] it’s only normal because _____ made it normal! Like how now it’s normal to be buddies with Kim Jong Un yet fear the cruel and devious Canadians. [He called her ‘horseface.’] Yes, ‘horseface. You heard it straight from the horse’s ass …”
