BLACKS FOR TRUMP: Bette Midler recently stirred controversy over a tweet she posted about black Donald Trump supporters standing behind him at a rally.
The owner of BlacksforTrump2020.com contacted BlackEnterprise.com to cry foul. You can read the article at the link below.
It reminds me of a great line I saw recently on the internet. “I’m tired of racists calling me a racist.”
Amen! Aren’t we all?!
BWAHAHA! – From Glenn Loury at the New York Slime: “When I first heard that President Trump had gone after the Rev. Al Sharpton — and that Mr. Sharpton had responded in kind — I must admit that I laughed. Are there two New York City hustlers who deserve one another more?
But 48 hours later, I feel differently. That’s thanks to the leading Democratic candidates for president, who have rushed to Mr. Sharpton’s defense, extolling his supposed virtues as a civil-rights paragon while denouncing Mr. Trump’s attack as racist. In doing so, they have, yet again, taken Mr. Trump’s bait, handing him another easy victory while yoking themselves to a genuine bigot.”
KAMALA: In 2011, SCOTUS ruled that severe overcrowding in California’s state prisons was tantamount to “cruel and unusual punishment” and ordered the state to reduce its prison population.
By early 2014, the state hadn’t met the population reduction targets and was ordered to “immediately implement specific population reduction measures.” Basically, this amounted to granting early release to certain non-violent and minimum-security inmates.
California stalled for more than a year. When SCOTUS put pressure on, lawyers for then-State’s Attorney General Kamala Harris argued in court that if California was forced to release these inmates early, prisons would lose an important labor pool.
Most of the prisoners who would be eligible for early release were working as groundskeepers, janitors, in prison kitchens, and on prison fire fighting teams, with wages that range from 8 cents to 37 cents per hour.
When this became public, Harris claimed to be shocked by the news. She said she’d had no idea!
But how could the Attorney General NOT have known what positions her deputies were taking in a Supreme Court case?!
BIDEN: “What do you consider Joe Biden’s most significant accomplishment?” [3:52] – Joe Biden was in elected office for 47 years (1970 to 2017).
None of the people interviewed knew this, but Biden’s signature achievement was actually the 1994 Violence Against Women Act, which his office authored. It was approved by bipartisan majorities in both chambers of Congress and signed by President Bill Clinton. However, SCOTUS later overturned one of its provisions.
BERNIE: Mitt Romney tweeted that Bernie Sanders is angry because he’s been in Congress for 28 years but was “never able to pass even a scintilla of his socialist agenda. All hat, no cattle.”
Sanders shot back the tweet above, which totally deserved Night Monkey’s snarky reply.
I can’t help but remember how millionaire Bernie responded to someone who suggested he was a bit of a hypocrite. Without even a scintilla of self-awareness, the Capitalism-hating Democrat retorted,
“If you write a best selling book, then you can be a millionaire too.”
