The Age of Embarrassment
It’s budget season and Mitch McConnell says the GOP will vote to default on its debt because the Democrats want to raise the debt ceiling to pay bills on time. Republicans will only vote for that if they’re in charge. While Trump was president, Congress voted to raise the debt ceiling 3 times. Democrats had no problem voting with the Republicans because they didn’t want America’s credit card to get declined.
For 39 years, ever since Newt Gingrich, the strategy of the Republican Party has been to say no to everything the Dems want to do so they don’t get any credit for anything because they’re spoiled brat rich white boys who don’t want to share the country with the rest of us.
Anti-vax, right wing radio hosts and pastors who are responsible for lying to people about how serious the covid public health crisis is have been dropping dead from covid but nobody at Fox News has died.
Republican hypocrite fun fact: Fox News has always had very strict covid rules — masks, testing, social distancing, vaccines…..all mandatory. It doesn’t practice what it preaches but we knew that already (we as in everybody who doesn’t watch Fox News.)
President Biden addressed the United Nations General Assembly in New York. It was the first time that everybody was able to be in the same room together since the world wide pandemic started. He spoke about diplomacy after Trump’s “America First,” the pandemic, human rights abuses, and developed nations having the responsibility of helping developing nations combat climate change since they’re the ones responsible for it. One of the people in attendance was Brazil’s Health Minister Marcelo Queiroga. He tested positive for covid a few hours after accompanying anti-vaxxer, right wing President Jair Bolsonaro (who has already had covid) to the assembly. He ignored New York City’s covid mandates and may have turned the event with the top leaders from around the world into a super spreader event. He was filmed flipping people off on a bus as he was leaving. New Yorkers are used to being flipped off so that didn’t bother them. What bothered them was having a dickhead from Brazil spreading the virus in their city a year and a half after their beloved city was ravaged by the Trump Plague.
Republicans impacted by fires burning across the country don’t blame climate change. They blame environmentalists for prioritizing trees, air, water and animals over them. They also blame poor forest management and the government for not thinning the trees (raking the forest.) They’re turning more and more into libertarians. Who needs the government when I have my own garden hose?
Trump is suing his niece, Mary Trump, plus 3 New York Times reporters for publishing information about his tax returns. He’s seeking at least $100 million in damages.
7 Capitol Hill police officers have filed a civil suit against Trump, the Proud Boys and the Three Precenters for attacking them on January 6. The lawsuit says that Trump “worked with white supremacists, violent extremist groups and supporters to commit acts of domestic terrorism in an unlawful attempt to stay in power.”
Eric Trump’s lawyer representing him in the fraud case against the Trump Organization has quit.
California, the most populous state in the nation, rates #1 for the lowest number of covid transmissions because they have a very good governor that the Trumplicans just tried to recall. He’s done a lot of things that Trump could never do. Most recently, he won twice.
Los Angeles, the second largest city in the country, has seen it’s number of covid cases flat line over the past couple of weeks because the dumbest, most selfish Americans don’t make their homes in LA. LA has more celebrities and Karens than it does MAGAs. Celebrities and Karens are not only vaccinated, but they had to be the first in line.

Laura Ingraham has dismissed 555 children dying from covid as “Only 555 children have died from covid.” How many of her shows were dedicated to 4 people dying in Benghazi?
After the census, Lauren Boebert’s district was redrawn and now she lives in a liberal district. Joe Neguse, one of the brilliant attorneys on the second impeachment team, is her representative. If she doesn’t move she’s going to have to run against him to stay in Congress so she’s reinventing herself as a “uniter” and wants to sit down with AOC to have a heart to heart. The pathological, gun toting, high school drop out, tell tale heart vs. the college educated, bleeding heart liberal from the Bronx. That’s embarrassing.
“Sadly, this is not, generally, an ‘Age of Enlightenment.’ In so many areas it’s an ‘Age of Embarrassment.’” — Dan Rather
