I Didn't Say It

Barack Obama, on the GQP standing in line to support the Big Lie:

“Suddenly, everybody was back in line. Now, the reason for that is because the base believed it. The base believed it because this had been told to them not just by the president, but by the media that they watch and nobody stood up and said, ‘Stop. This is enough. This is not true.’ [Well] I won’t say nobody. Let me correct it. There were some very brave people who did their jobs, like the secretary of state in Georgia, who was then viciously attacked for it. And all those congressmen started looking around and they said, ‘You know what? I’ll lose my job. I’ll get voted out of office.’ Another way of saying this is, I didn’t expect that there would be so few people who would say, ‘Well, I don’t mind losing my office because this is too important. America’s too important.'”

Sorry, Mr. president, but you’re acting as if those GOP Senators and Congressman care more about their country than they do their own wallets, and they don’t.

Which is why we need to vote every single one out of office in every election until they are all gone.

Chris Wallace, Fox News host, challenging Democrat Republican Senator Joe Manchin, who is refusing to support filibuster reform to pass a voting rights bill:

“You said you oppose scrapping the filibuster. The question I have is whether or not—and you say that you hope that will bring the parties together—the question I have is whether or not you’re doing it exactly the wrong way? … If you were to keep the idea that maybe you would vote to kill the filibuster, wouldn’t that give Republicans an incentive to actually negotiate because old Joe Manchin is out there and who knows what he’s going to do? By taking it off the table, haven’t you empowered Republicans to be obstructionists?”

Yes, he has, but, again, like a Republican, he is more concerned with his own job and his own paycheck, than he is with making voting easier for Americans not more difficult.

Joe Manchin can kindly fuck all the way off.

Joe Manchin, answering Wallace, trying to prove he’s not a traitor to his party and this country:

“I don’t think so, because we have seven brave Republicans that continue to vote for what they know is right and the facts as they see them, not worrying about the political consequences. I’m just very hopeful and I see good signs. Give us some time.  I’m not being naïve. I think [Mitch McConnell’s] 100% wrong in trying to block all the good things that we’re trying to do for America. It would be a lot better if we had participation and we’re getting participation.”

Not enough asshat, and when you have the leader of the other side blatantly saying they will not help this president and you do nothing to change that, then you are clearly on their side.

What—and I cannot stress this enough—the fuck?

Kayleigh McEnany, former White House press secretary liar, on reports that successor Jen Psaki was being photographed by Annie Leibovitz for Vogue magazine:

“Instead of the glowing profiles [on the women in the twice-impeached, one-term loser’s camp], there were hit pieces repeatedly, time and time again. It’s just so sad that you have a fawning press corps like this, a fawning media sycophantically covering members of the Biden administration.”

Oh Barbie, this is seriously what you’re upset about? That Vogue didn’t take your picture? Maybe if you hadn’t carried water for a murderous traitor, you could be prom Queen.

Then again …

Franklin Graham, throwing a hissy because, once again, after four years of ‘It’ the State Department will allow our embassies to fly the Pride flag:

“Shame on our State Department for allowing the American Embassy at the Vatican to fly the LGBTQ pride flag. What an insult to the Catholic Church! This flag is promoting an agenda, not a country, and to give it equal billing with the American flag is wrong. It seems that the Biden Administration has no limits on how far they will go to offend the Catholic Church. President [Twice-impeached, One-term Loser] had a one-flag rule—only one flag could be flown on the American flagpole at our embassies—and that was the American flag. Isn’t that how it should be?”

Short answer you bigoted twat: Nope.

Chasten Buttigieg, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s husband, taking a shot at RNC head Ronna McDaniel’s Tweet about the GOP’s support of LGBTQ+ rights:

”Those with "deeply held religious beliefs" are often the parents who force their LGBTQ children out of the home and onto the street. I've met with those kids. 40% of homeless youth in this country are LGBTQ. Re-visit your party's platform before you open your mouth about Pride.”

Snap.

Does Vogue need any more plastic Barbies on the front cover of their magazine for the rich and infamous? After all they had plastic Barbie #3 aka wife of BLOATUS on the cover not that long ago...and she was eating glass pseudo diamonds. They don't need a re-run with your cheap imitation of an imitation.

Helen Lashbrook said...

PS I cannot believe the pope was that thrilled when BOATUS sent a divorcee cum mistress of an adulterer as Ambassador to the Holy See; I fail to see how a multi-coloured flag would hurt.

Ur-spo said...

ouch

Moving with Mitchell said...

Yes, snap!

the dogs' mother said...

Was happy to see Chasten Buttigieg on
the news.

If Little Frankie Graham is upset about the American embassy flying a pride flag at the Vatican, just wait until he finds out what's been done in the name of the American flag.

Agnes Goldberg-DeWoofs said...

I would say Chasten Buttigieg gave two snaps.

I would still take back Obama, Im still not sure how I feel about Biden just yet, except with the virus, which he attacked quickly.

Bob said...

@Helen
Religion and politics are filled with hypocrites.

@Ur-spo
Indeed, ouch.

@Mitchell
Chasten doesn't suffer fools.

@TDM
And plainly speaking truth.

@brewells
I'm sure he knows but doesn't care as long as the American flag hates all the "right" people.

@Agnes Goldberg-DeWoofs
It was two snaps.
And I'd take Obama back in a heartbeat. Joe needs to stop thinking the GOP will help get anything done since McConnell has clearly said he will not help, and just do ends runs around the traitors.

krayolakris said...

O dear, Franklin, by all means let’s not offend the church of the child abusers,

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

Love Chasten's shade. So classy. I'd go cut a bitch.
And the thing with Manchin is the amount of $$$$$$$ him and his family are receiving. And he's a Repug.
*sigh* Oh, Barack.

Franklin can go fuck himself. Wait. No. He may enjoy that.

XOXO

Bob said...

@krayloakris
He can't overlook a rainbow flag but child rape ... ?

@Siz
EVERYthing.

Obama, the Wise.

Chris Wallace, the Wise.

Manchin, the Dope.

Boy, is kayleigh jealous or what?

Frankie, the Hate Meister.

Chasten, the sharpist.

uptonking said...

Ooo... Chasten has some 'snap' to him. And 'tis true.. religion is a scourge on the community. It should be abolished. I will no longer tolerate such nonsense.

And speaking of 'scourge' - Franklin continues to try to relevant. Except he's not. His father would be so embarrassed with all his hollow proclamations and bigoted stances. Franklin needs to be exposed for the fraud he is... just like Jerry and the pool boy. People in glass houses...

Speaking of glass houses... McEnemey, who has demonstrated time and again that she does not understand irony, seems to think its her job to take on Psaki. Sadly, bleach brain is not up to the task. Maybe she should launch a brand of drag queen wigs instead? The Dollar Store is always looking for new things to sell.

And speaking of new things to sell? I'm not buying Joe's concern for the country. Somebody has something on this douche. Vote him out. Supplementation of bad policy is not bipartisanship, Joe. Get with the program, ya dino-sore.

And speaking of getting with the program... Chris Wallace continues to do a stellar job at Fox News, the only broadcaster there to not sell out his integrity as a journalist. He must have something on Murd(er)och. I hope he continues to stick his neck out for the right causes.

And speaking of sticking your neck out... about time, Obama. I was looking at a commercial rental space this week and the workman there were playing some far right propaganda radio station who was up in arms about this, basically telling 'Mr. Obama' (that's PRESIDENT Obama to you, bigot) to shut up and go away. I hope he continues to speak up. We need him more than ever and I do not believe he can overstay his welcome. He could easily become America's Mandela.

Thanks for the feed. Came late to the party. I was surprised you didn't mention Omar and her comments on Palestine. Next week? Kizzes.

Steve Reed said...

Snap indeed. Go Chasten!

There's something darkly funny about Kayleigh M (who is from my hometown, sad to say) being upset at not getting a Vogue photoshoot.

I don't agree with Chris Wallace on many things, but at least he's respectable.
