John McCain is looking up at this and just shaking his head.
“Look, all she did was throw gasoline onto the fire. It would have grown bigger on its own anyway!”
She didn’t make him be racist.
You’re conveniently ignoring that she helped create this situation by constantly antagonizing AOC and pals. Or did you forget that this started when Trump was defending her on Twitter? She doesn’t and never has taken racism, much less Trump’s racism seriously. That’s the issue.
Fight fire with fire? She literally said at the debate that she intends to beat Trump with love. Do you think the Care Bear Stare is going to fix the racist republicans in office and that make up Trump’s base?
New headline proposal: Well-meaning White Woman White Womans All Over Well-meaning White Audience
He’s working Pelosi over? This is a huge political gift to Pelosi. Pelosi made a huge, unforced error belittling these four, and the news cycle was all about the resulting Democratic infighting. Now, the cycle is all about Trump’s racism, and Democrats are basically united again. This is not Trump getting one over on…
The fact that it could go south THAT fast should be a sign that it was always extremely fragile to start with.. It was always a Cheato Lie (about 2 microns thick) away from being publicly destroyed.. It was never baked in because there are soo many forces that keep hate/inequality alive.
Damn, I have to admit I am shocked. The Administration clearly does not give a shit about offenses against women. Acosta must’ve gotten sick of answering all the questions. (Also, am I the only one who has to constantly correct myself that he is not, in fact, *Jim* Acosta?)
Really, you just need to look at his background to see where this stuff comes from:
It’s probably an all-time, world-class grift. Get video of the wealthiest and most powerful men in the world - those who’d genuinely have a lot to lose if exposed - then DON’T directly blackmail them. Instead, charm them; pressure them to invest substantially with your fund; offer further sexual exploits to fuel the…
Yeah but did you see how fucking high he jumped?!?
To suggest Trump is deporting immigrants as a distraction and not because it was what he was explicitly elected to do is absurd on a number of levels.
You’re right, they are absolutely batshit. What a batshit idea to not want to give over 4.5 billion dollars to ICE and DHS for the expansion of torture camps for kids. What an absolutely batshit notion that we can just throw billions upon billions at a campaign of xenophobia, but we have to cut our own services to…
America doesn’t have a far left movement.
You can have your wife be your partner in crime or you can have 5 mistresses. Unwise to try and do both.
There will absolutely people who by into narrative. That is the exact point of the setup and how it commentates on our own world’s media and how people by into fake news.
Children in cages? Silence. People of color murdered by the police? Not a peep. Atrocities committed by our government? No big deal. A fictional character portrayed by something other than a white woman? Burn it all to the ground and salt the fucking earth. This is why I don’t trust the 53% club next November. Give…
