YES HE ACTUALLY SAID THAT!

Fuckface Von Clownstick [Donald Trump] said on Wednesday that women who had abortions should face “some form of punishment” if Republicans were successful in banning the practice.

During a town hall event that set to air on MSNBC Wednesday night, host Chris Matthews insisted that Trump could not dodge the question of how to enforce an abortion ban.

“Look, people in certain parts of the Republican Party, conservative Republicans, would say, ‘Yes, it should,’” Trump replied, according to a transcript obtained by Bloomberg. “I would say it’s a very serious problem and it’s a problem we have to decide on. Are you going to send them to jail?” 
“There has to be some form of punishment,” he said. 
“For the woman?” Matthews pressed. 
“Yeah,” Clownstick replied, adding that the punishment would “have to be determined.”
“They’ve set the law and frankly the judges, you’re going to have a very big election coming up for that reason because you have judges where it’s a real tipping point and with the loss of Scalia, who was a very strong conservative, this presidential election is going to be very important,” the candidate opined. “When you say what’s the law, nobody knows what the law is going to be. It depends on who gets elected.”

VIDEO COURTESY OF MSNBC




While Clownstick walked back his inane comment hours later, there is no doubt in this bloggers mind that Clownstick’s cognitive thought process indeed meant women should be punished for having an abortion. This rhetoric falls in true step with the conservative narrative.

While this talk is dangerous, we should be accustomed to the shock and awe psycho babble bullshit of Clownstick. Maybe Clownstick could waterboard the women for their choice? Clownstick often suffers from diarrhea of the mouth and constipation of the brain. Foot in mouth disease, it’s what conservatives suffer from.

The abortion problem is a plethora, but the bottom line is - neither Clownstick, nor any other radical white pasty man – should it be their business to dictate to a woman what her personhood business is.

If it’s your religious belief, I could careless, keep your religion out of my business and women’s personhood. If it is indeed wrong to have an abortion, one, don’t have one, two, it’s your creators job to deal with it not yours!

The last I saw, women had the right to choice, until as such that the choice is no longer theirs, mind your own fucking business!

“THE ARGUMENT OF A FIVE YEAR OLD”

Anderson Cooper throttled [Fuckface Von Clownstick] Donald Trump on Tuesday after the Republican presidential candidate tried to pass the blame for his attacks on Sen. Ted Cruz’s wife.

VIDEO COURTESY OF CNN



“After saying you were going to spill the beans about Heidi Cruz, you retweeted an unflattering picture of her next to a picture of your wife,” Cooper said in reference to Trump spreading an unflattering picture of Heidi Cruz online set side-by-side with one depicting Melania Trump more favorably.

“I thought it was a nice picture of Heidi. I thought it was fine,” Trump replied, prompting Cooper to say, “Come on.”
 
“I thought it was fine,” Trump insisted. “She’s a pretty woman.” 
“You’re running for president of the United States,” Cooper said. 
“Excuse me. I didn’t start it,” Trump said.
“Sir, with all due respect, that’s the argument of a 5-year-old,” Cooper shot back. “The argument of a 5-year-old is he started it.”

Trump tried to argue that Cooper’s viewpoint was “the problem with our country,” but Cooper cut him off.
“Every parent knows a kid who says, ‘He started it,'” the host said.
Trump then accused Cruz of sending the picture. When Cooper noted that it was actually the work of an anti-Trump super PAC, Trump then blamed “Mittens Romney people.”
“Romney is embarrassed that he did so badly four years ago,” Trump ranted. “The guy choked like a dog.”
“Do you have proof he sent it out?” Cooper asked. 
“Everybody knows he sent it out,” Trump responded. “He knew the people in the super PAC.”
Fuckface has proven time and time again why he can’t be anywhere near the White House! This lone instance proves that this narcissistic putz has the mind of grade school bully.

SILVERMAN EASES TENSIONS FOR “SUPER RICH ASSHOLES” IF BERNIE BECOMES PRESIDENT

Sarah Silverman released a video on Monday expanding on her support for Sen. Bernie Sanders in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, the Daily Beast reported.
“This man is running for president on a platform that is just a giant ‘f*ck you’ to the above-the-law billionaire class who have been controlling government policy with their money and not paying a nickel in taxes through government loopholes they secure with said money.”
Silverman also identified herself as a former supporter of Sanders’ opponent, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, even though it meant rationalizing Clinton’s financial support on the part of corporate donors.
“Every politician takes money from big money, ever since it was made legal through Citizens United,” Silverman explained. “It’s legalized corruption. If all the other ball players are taking steroids, you have to take steroids too to compete, right?”




Silverman said that she felt she had more in common with Sanders’ platform, emphasizing his reliance thus far on individual donors, while also rejecting the notion that his being a Democratic Socialist would be bad for the country.

“Good lord, under President Sanders, don’t worry, you can still become a super-rich asshole,” Silverman said. “It’s just that your fellow hard-working citizens don’t have to feed their children cat food in order for you to do it.”
At the same time, she assured viewers she did not want to push anyone into voting.
“If you vote or not, that’s not my business — I’m not your money,” she said. “Though like your mommy, I have a completely full bush.”

CREEPY CHRISTIAN NUTTER CRUZ CELEBRATES EASTER WITH THE SUGGSTION OF CARPET BOMBING INNOCENT HUMANS

CREEPY TED CRUZ



“And as we remember the gift of salvation on Good Friday and Easter Sunday, let us be so bold to ask the same,” Cruz said in a statement on Good Friday. Yet, on Easter Sunday, Cruz was singing a different tune, doubling down on his desire to “carpet bomb” the Middle East.

Fox’s Shannon Bream played a clip of former Sec. Hillary Clinton criticizing Cruz for his bomb-everyone-ask-questions-later foreign policy strategy, saying that the plan shows Cruz would be in over his head. Bream cited a CNN poll out earlier in March showing Cruz ranking fourth when it comes to America’s confidence in leadership on foreign policy. “So, as a first-term senator, as the secretary suggested, are you in over your head on foreign policy?” she asked.

Cruz’s first tactic was to blame the Obama administration, and Clinton along with it, claiming the United States has abandoned its allies. “This has been the most anti-Israel administration we have ever seen. And we have shown weakness and appeasement to our enemies,” Cruz said. He then attacked President Obama for visiting Cuba and working to lift the embargo on the country before criticizing the current anti-ISIS strategy.
“But we need a president who will bring the full force and fury of the United States of America to defeating ISIS,” Cruz continued. “Shannon, I’ll tell you, if I’m president, we will utterly and completely destroy ISIS. We will carpet bomb them into oblivion, using overwhelming airpower. We will arm the Kurds on the ground. We will use our forces to defeat them and we won’t put our forces in combat with the rules of engagement that Obama is so fond of that tie their arms behind their back that make it impossible for them to fight and win. That is wrong and that is immoral.

“If and when we use military force, we will use it to win, to defeat our enemies with overwhelming force and then we’ll get the heck out. We won’t engage in nation-building, but rather, we’ll keep America safe,” Cruz concluded.



In January, a Fox News host attacked Cruz for his “carpet bombing” strategy claiming it showed he had zero military understanding or experience.

Host Chris Wallace cited former commandant of the U.S. Army War College, Robert Scales, who argued that carpet bombing was “just one of those phrases that people with no military experience throw around.”

As Army Lt. Gen. Sean MacFarland, the general in charge of the campaign against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) explained, “Indiscriminate bombing, where we don’t care if we’re killing innocents or combatants, is just inconsistent with our values.”

“And it’s what the Russians have been accused of doing in parts of northwest Syria,” he said explaining why Cruz’s strategy was wrong. “Right now we have the moral high ground, and I think that’s where we need to stay.”

“At the end of the day, it doesn’t only matter whether or not you win, it matters how you win,” he continued. “And we’re the United States of America and we have a set of guiding principles and those effect the way we as professional soldiers, airmen, sailors, Marines, conduct ourselves on the battlefield.”

"TED CRUZ WOULD BE OUR WORST PRESIDENT, BUT TRUMP MIGHT BE OUR LAST"

CREEPY MAN OR ORANGUTAN MAN?


House of assholes versus house of douchebags:

Bill Maher said last night that there are significant differences between the two Republican presidential candidates.
“Donald Trump wants to build a wall to keep out creepy foreigners,” Maher explained. “Ted Cruz is proof we need it.”
Both conservatives and liberals, Maher said, have come to him asking for help deciding between the two.
“Republicans, I feel your pain,” he said. “You’re stuck between a rock and a gross place. The House of Asshole or the House of Douchebag. Team Werewolf or Team Vampire. Verizon or AT&T. But we have to accept that being a grown-up means hard choices between disgusting options.”

VIDEO COURTESY OF HBO



The horrid of such a terrible choice - Maher took a swig of bleach — comparing it to picking between the Zika and Ebola viruses.

He compared Trump to Ebola in this scenario, saying, “he’ll violently kill you right away.” Cruz, on the other hand, is like Zika because “we don’t see the damage until future generations.”

I've written numerous [over 15 thousand] blogs over the years readers, and I've said many times, voting has consequences. With the current cast of GOPers running, these consequences can be dire!

Choose wisely in November readers, if Maher is right, this could be your last vote for a United States President.

CREEPY SEX TALK SOUNDS EVEN CREEPIER WHEN IT’S CONDUCTED BY A “CONSERVATIVE FAMILY CHRISTIAN VALUES” FANATIC.

“The best form of birth control is listening to republicans discussion birth control ~ Roger West 2012
Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley, who has campaigned on old-fashioned Christian values, has now been publicly humiliated amid allegations of an affair — and the release of an audio recording in which he is clearly caught in a compromised position.

The Birmingham News obtained a copy of a recording made of Bentley, capturing what appears to be excerpts from one side of a racy conversation he had with a woman on the phone. The recording is said to have been made by members of Bentley’s family, who were trying to find out whether he was having an affair.

Bentley’s wife filed for divorce last August, and the divorce was finalized in September.




Some excerpts:

· “So I mean, it was fine…he couldn’t tell who I was sending it to. And it didn’t say, ‘Hey baby, I love you so much and I’d like to spend the rest of my life with you.'” 
· “You’d kiss me. I love that you know I do love that. You know what, when I stand behind you, and I put my arms around you, and I put my arms on your breasts, and I put my head… and pull you real close. “ 
· “Hey, I love that, too, putting my hands under you.” 
· “I love you. I love to talk to you.” 
· “But baby, let me tell you what we’ve gonna have to do tonight, start locking the door. If we’re gonna do what we did the other day, we’re gonna have to start locking the door.”

The release comes after Bentley fired the state’s law enforcement secretary, Spencer Collier, amid an investigation of wrongdoing in Collier’s office — after which Collier turned around and accused Bentley of having an affair with his senior political adviser, Rebekah Mason, and misusing a state plane to facilitate the relationship.

In a press conference Wednesday, Bentley admitted to inappropriate behavior, saying it took place two years ago: “Since that time I have apologized to members of my family, to Mrs. Mason and her family and I apologized then for any conversations and behavior then that was inappropriate.”

But, he said, there was no actual affair: “I want everyone to know though that I have never had a physical affair with Mrs. Mason. I can assure the people of Alabama I have never done anything illegal. I have never asked any member of my staff or any cabinet member to lie despite what the former ALEA secretary said today.”

For her part, Rebekah Mason is also denying that any affair took place — and she is accusing Collier of committing a gender-based attack against her.
“Unfortunately there are still some people who are set on hindering the ability of women to work in the political arena,” Mason said in a statement. “I am proud of what I have accomplished in my professional career. And I am grateful for the opportunities God has given me to serve our state.”

LOUIE GOHMERT IS POSSIBLY THE DUMBEST HUMAN ON EARTH

Right wing nut job Louie Gohmert explained on Tuesday that he and other Republicans had voted against a bill to promote the recruitment of women scientists because it discriminated “based on gender.”

In a 383-4 vote on Tuesday, a bill authorizing the National Science Foundation to use its entrepreneurial programs to recruit women sailed through the House. Later in the afternoon, Gohmert took to the House floor to defend himself and the three other Republicans — Reps. Justin Amash , Glenn Grothman and Thomas Massie — who voted against the bill.

Gohmert acknowledged that the bill was “well intentioned,” but said that “this program is designed to discriminate against that young, poverty-stricken boy and to encourage the girl. Forget the boy. Encourage the girl.”
“It just seems that, if we are ever going to get to the dream of Martin Luther King, Jr., that he spoke just down the Mall, he wanted people to be judged by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin,” the Texas Republican opined. “I know after race has been an issue that needed attention, then gender appropriately got attention.”

But Gohmert argued that “those things are not supposed to matter.”
“It just seems like, when we come in and we say that it is important that for a while we discriminate, we end up getting behind,” he continued. “And then probably 25 years from now boys are going to have fallen behind in numbers, and then we are going to need to come in and say: Actually, when we passed that bill forcing encouragement of girls and not encouraging of little boys, we were getting behind the eight ball. We didn’t see that we were going to be leaving little boys in the ditch, and now we need to start doing programs to encourage little boys.”
According to the lawmaker, the bill passed on Tuesday would have derailed the Madame Curie’s research, putting “millions and millions of lives” in jeopardy.



“I thank God that there wasn’t a program like this that distracted her,” Gohmert said. “But according to the bill that we passed today, we are requiring the Science Foundation to encourage entrepreneurial programs to recruit and support women to extend their focus beyond the laboratory and into the commercial world. Thank God that is not what Madame Curie did.”
Gohmert, Amash and Massie also voted against a second bill that would encourage mentorship programs between scientists and female K-12 students. That bill passed 380-3.

Congrats Louie, you are today’s dumbest human of the world. Enjoy numb-nuts!

“IS HE FOR RAEL”

There is always opportunity for politicians to pander to whatever demographic du jour they can. This time around it was time for Jews to have a turn as a parade of pandering made its way across the stage. On Tuesday’s “Nightly Show,” comedian Larry Wilmore slammed “little pushan fisted ignorant orangesicle” Donald Trump for saying that President Barack Obama was the worst thing to ever happen to Isreal.
“Humm, no, I don’t believe you. Whether or not you like Obama there are many worse things that have happened to Isreal,” Wilmore said, citing religious persecution “and 5,000 more years of religious persecution!” Trump played up his daughter’s pregnancy, saying that she was about to have a beautiful Jewish baby. “The level of pandering here is just so amateurish here,” Wilmore continued. “Most politicians kiss a baby, his daughter is having a Jewish baby.”
When it comes to the media’s commentary on the speech, no one seemed to care about the content it was the teleprompter that people said made him look like a leader. “Are they shocked that Trump can read!?” Wilmore exclaimed. “The bar is set so low for this little puchan fisted ignorant orangesicle that they’re actually fawning over the fact that he can read a speech?” By contrast, when Obama was elected he was mercilessly criticized for bringing a teleprompter with him to speeches.

VIDEO COURTESY OF COMEDY CENTRAL


That’s when Wilmore brought out Donald Trump himself to comment about his “perfect speech to the Jews.” The Trump imitation was so flawless he even had the strange light concealer under his eyes. He claims he used the teleprompter because it would help make things easier on journalists like Megyn Kelly. Trump said she recently turned 45, which he called disgusting, “because everyone knows after a woman turns 25 she’s useless.” He’s a great fan of women, by the way.

BEE SAYS NUTTERS ARE COCKBLOCKING GARLAND NOMINATION

Samantha Bee slammed conservative lawmakers on Monday night for going to any length to block the Supreme Court nomination of Merrick Garland.
“Why are you cockblocking this gentle law Hobbit?” she demanded to know.
Bee rejected the rationale from “half-melted Reagan dummy from Madame Tussaud’s wax museum” Ted Cruz and other Republicans that President Barack Obama should leave the high court with a vacancy because he is a “lame duck.”
“Jesus Christ, he’s not a lame duck,” Bee said. “He’s three trimesters away from lame duckery. A president’s term is four years; you can’t say three of them are legitimate and the fourth is garbage. They’re not Indiana Jones movies.”

VIDEO COURTESY OF TBS



Instead, she said, they are holding out for their right to see either Hillary Clinton appoint “a transgender Black Panther abortion doctor” or Donald Trump nominate “a pile of Maxim magazines.”

MITCH MCCONNELLSAYS THE UNTHINKABLE

Supreme Court justices are nominated by the president and appointed with the advice and consent of the National Rifle Association, according to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell 

McConnell offered this unusual view of the confirmation process during an interview with Fox News Sunday. In response to a question from host Chris Wallace, who asked if Senate Republicans would consider the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court after the election if Hillary Clinton prevails, McConnell responded that he “can’t imagine that a Republican majority in the United States Senate would want to confirm, in a lame duck session, a nominee opposed by the National Rifle Association [and] the National Federation of Independent Businesses.”

The Majority Leader’s statement is significant for several reasons. For one thing, it suggests that his previously stated position that “this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new President,” is a sham. Simply put, it’s unlikely that the NRA or the NFIB will change their position on a nominee just because Hillary Clinton is president and not Barack Obama.

But it’s also worth examining exactly who McConnell would give a veto power over nominees. The NFIB, of course, was a plaintiff in NFIB v. Sebelius, the first Supreme Court case seeking to repeal the Affordable Care Act. That lawsuit called upon the justices to impose limits on federal power that even the late Justice Antonin Scalia refused to impose in previous cases (although it’s worth noting that Scalia abandoned his previous principled stance when given the opportunity to cast a vote against Obamacare). When the NFIB isn’t fighting to take health care away from millions of Americans, it fights equally hard against raising the minimum wage.

The NRA, meanwhile, is known for its increasingly absolutist opposition to gun safety laws. Though Garland’s record on guns is fairly thin, the NRA opposes Garland’s nomination based on two cases he considered as a judge.

In the first of these two cases, Parker v. District of Columbia, Garland played a very limited role. InParker, two conservative members of a three judge panel struck down the District of Columbia’s strict handgun laws, over the dissent of another conservative, George H.W. Bush appointee Judge Karen Henderson. The District then asked the full appeals court to reconsider this decision in a process known as en banc review. Garland was one of four judges who voted to rehear the case, as was Judge A. Raymond Randolph, an extraordinarily conservative H.W. Bush appointee.

A 5-4 Supreme Court eventually agreed with the three-judge panel in District of Columbia v. Heller, the first decision in American history to hold that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to bear arms.

The second case cited by the NRA is National Rifle Association v. Reno, where Garland joined a decision by Judge David Tatel upholding a database the FBI uses to audit the background check system used to screen potential firearm buyers. The FBI retained information regarding individuals who sought to purchase firearms for six months after they attempted to make this purchase, and used this information to perform “quality control checks on the [background check] system’s operation by reviewing the accuracy of the responses given by the NICS record examiners to gun dealers,” among other things.

After six months, information in this database was destroyed. Nevertheless, the NRA claimed that the FBI was required to destroy this information much sooner.

Judge Tatel’s opinion rejecting the NRA’s argument relies on several interlocking provisions of federal law, as well as longstanding Supreme Court doctrines calling for deference to federal agencies, so it is not easily summarized in just a few paragraphs. You can read his opinion and assess his reasoning here. It’s worth noting, however, that NRA v. Reno is a classic case of gun groups seeking to win a victory in the courts that they repeatedly lost in Congress.

A provision of federal law requires the government to “destroy all records . . . relating to the person” who seeks to purchase a firearm — something the FBI did after six months — but does not order the government to do so within a specific time frame. As Judge Tatel notes in the opinion joined by Garland, members of Congress attempted multiple times to change this law to require the government to “immediately” destroy records produced by the background check system, and these efforts repeatedly failed. Thus, having failed to write the word “immediately” into the statute, the NRA asked the courts to do it for them. Tatel and Garland refused to take up this invitation.

So McConnell isn’t simply delegating his duty to evaluate potential Supreme Court nominees to the NRA, he’s deferring to the NRA despite the fact that the gun lobby group’s case against Garland is very thin. It consists of Garland’s single vote to rehear a case that one of his court’s most conservative members also voted to rehear, along with a decision to allow the FBI to continue to perform audits on the background check system after lawmakers sympathetic to the NRA tried and failed to shut those audits down.

CONGRESSMAN'S WAREHOUSE




Have seen the commercials for Men’s Wearhouse, the dress clothes retailer, which end with the bearded CEO promising , “you’re going to like the way you look. I guarantee it.” But you almost certainly haven’t seen the ad for Congressmen’s Wearhous - until now !

While Congressmen’s Wearhouse doesn't really exist; or does it........

The video, a parody video if you will from Big Bad Boris, satirizes the purchasing of politicians, and foresees a day when the falling price of candidates ushers in a whole new way of campaign-financing– cut-rate candidates for the budget-conscious consumer!


CONGRESSMAN'S WAREHOUSE




The mission of CMW is clear: “At Congressmen’s Warehouse, you don’t have to be a billionaire to buy a candidate. We welcome your dark money no matter what denomination it comes in,” including bitcoins, Apple Pay and unmarked singles. 2016 has seen the rise of crowdfunding (Bernie) and self-funding (Trump) as alternatives to the super pac. Congressmen’s Warehouse offers another alternative – niche-funding or personalized pandering. Now every citizen can buy their own candidate, selecting from a ready-made set of memes, dog whistles and hidden agendas to advance their interests and obsessions.

They offer congressmen “tailored to your agenda and pocketbook,” enabling customers to build their own standard-bearers out of the latest political styles and stances, from climate change denial, to second amendment fetishism, to transvaginal ultra-sounding.

Often parody's mimic the realistic view or perception b y others - of the one being mocked, in this instance, this clip is dead nuts spot on.

STORE POLICY

COURTESY OF MIKE KEEFE


If you’re a moderate, liberal or independent you need to tune in and listen closely to what the right is saying – especially the Trump voter. It’s time to unite against the elephant menace.

By now we all know the hallmarks of Trumpenstein’s platform. All feel good ideas to the 35% of the righty who wants to make America great - like it was when women stayed in the kitchen, immigrants were the cheap help that came over the border to pick our fields and didn't stay, and government was small. You know, 1950.

Trump’s boarder wall makes me laugh. The problem is walls mean nothing to the motivated criminals, especially the drug cartels. These are the same guys that started using submarines when the Coast Guard amped-up their surveillance of the seas. Listen to what the Marines have to say about walls.

What pisses me off most is the utter contempt they have toward those that disagree. According to them we’re weak, racists against whitey, that we hate the military, that we don’t love our country like they do. Donald himself called us "pussies". "They want their country back!"

Well friend, we won the election. The Presidency is ours. Oh and we’re going to win this one too, albeit only if you get out and vote – take your neighbor, grandma, Uncle Joe. Make sure your college student is registered and has an absentee ballot.

I don’t plan on giving this country back to these tribal idiots anytime soon. It’s store policy – no returns.

THE BULLSHIT TSUNAMI

I’ve been trying to understand the Trump voter better. I know, waste of time. Their candidate, and most of them, just fans the flames of anger and divisiveness.

Why is that? It started over 20 years ago, when the republicans won control of Congress. "To truly achieve the level of change we want, we have to have control," Newt Gingrich said.

How’d that work out? The institution of trade polices that allowed their cronie-capitalist friends to accumulate ever more wealth while the rest of us are left in the dust. I’m not anti-trade; I’m pro fair trade – trade that protects American jobs.

Tax policy? It’s voodoo economic theory. It’s never, ever been successful! Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman warned us about their plan. However, the real threat to America lies deep within their thinking.

Have you ever listened to Ted Cruz? I know, its hard, but try. He professes to be an original intent brand of the Constitutionalist.

Original intent? Sorry, there’s a shovel full on top of Bullshit Mountain. They like term limits, except when it limits them. They like the original intent, but now Cruz thinks there should be limited terms on the Supreme Court. Reminder – the original intent of lifetime appointments was to eliminate transient political influence on the court.

Listening to the speech Marco Rubio gave on the eve of Super Tuesday 3, it struck me how they phony they really are. May God bless the conservative movement - horseshit! The liberals aren’t your enemy. This is not good vs. evil. Marco, this is why you lost - try reading Mathew 5:44 and put that message into your heart.

Yeah, we’re in the middle of a Tsunami, a bullshit tsunami. The GOP has done a great job of churning the water so all the crap comes to the surface. What I learned this week in talking to the Trump supporter is that they’re angry – and love, compassion, and empathy are things they boldly mock. So Bye-bye Little Marco, maybe you should show up for work now and do what Florida voters elected you to do.

PBS EXPOSES WHITE SUPREMACISTS CONNECTION TO CLOWNSTICK

TRUMP FOLLOWER AND WHITE SUPREMACIST GRACE TILLY


A 33-year-old [Fuckface Von Clownstick]Donald Trump campaign volunteer in North Carolina featured as part of a PBS Newshour report on Tuesday was wearing tattoos associated with white supremacists, Gawker reported.

The story, which aired on Tuesday, focused on Grace Tilly and her family, and shows both her and her 11-year-old son phone-banking for the Republican front-runner.
“I definitely think, with Trump’s business savvy, his mind, I think that he’s going to be the best one that’s going to be able to help us,” she tells PBS. “Our family has been impacted in a very big way by the recession. We definitely at times are living paycheck to paycheck. And my husband is having hard time finding work as well.”
VIDEO COURTESY OF PBS



Unfortunately the report does not mention the two tattoos seen on her hand: a stylized version of the Celtic Cross called “Odin’s Cross,” which the Anti-Defamation League said “has become one of the most popular white supremacist symbols around,” as well as a stylized version of the number 88, which the League has identified as “a white supremacist numerical code for ‘Heil Hitler.'”

The lone reference to race in the report comes after the family is seen at a March 9 rally while a protester is removed from the event.
“All these protesters and all this stuff, and people saying he’s racist, and then the Black Lives Matter, you know what? Red lives matter,” says her father-in-law, Pete Tilly. “Because when you bleed, we all bleed red.”
White supremacist groups have sent “robocalls” on behalf of Clownstick, who won the state’s Republican primary on Tuesday, and have also publicly thanked Trump for spotlighting their views.

CLOWNSTICK NOT A WOMAN HATING MANNIAC - HE JUST PLAYS ONE ON TV

Fuckface Von Clownstick spokeswoman Katrina Pierson gave an interesting reply Tuesday to a new ad from an anti-Trump conservative super PAC, which featured women reading back offensive things The Donald has said about many different women over the years.



“I really don’t think this is gonna be a problem. A lot of those statements are what Mr. Trump made as a television character,” Pierson said, during an appearance on Fox News. “So I don’t think that some of that is gonna stick. Again, everyone knows who Mr. Trump is — that’s why they’re having a very hard time, spending hundreds of millions trying to redefine who Mr. Trump is.”
Reality is, at least two of those quotes are from Real Donald Trump the candidate. (One of them was about Megyn Kelly, and the other about Carly Fiorina.)

Real Donald Trump said:
“There was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her — wherever,” regarding Megyn Kelly at the first Fox News debate; and of Carly Fiorina, “Look at that face — would anyone vote for that?”

REAL DONALD TRUMP QUOTES ABOUT WOMEN

A new ad from Our Principles PAC goes after Donald Trump for his long history of offensive comments about women.

In this case, however, rather than the cool voice of a narrator reading out his comments, different on-screen women repeat his comments with varying degrees of ire in their voices.
“Real quotes from Donald Trump about women,” a woman says as an introduction. 
They read out quotes from Trump referring to women with such terms as “bimbo,” “fat pig,” and “dog.” 
“A person who is very flat-chested is very hard to be a ’10,’” a woman quotes Trump saying.
Past remarks Trump made about Carly Fiorina, Megyn Kelly, and Princess Diana that referred disparagingly to, respectively, their face, menstrual cycle and psyche all are included as well:
“I like kids. I mean, I won’t do anything to take care of them. I’ll supply funds, and she’ll take care of the kids.”
“You know, it really doesn’t matter what they write, as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.”
“That must be a pretty picture. You dropping to your knees.”
“Women. You have to treat them like shit.”
“This is how Donald Trump talks about our mothers, our sisters, our daughters,” the ad concludes. “If you believe America deserves better, vote against Donald Trump.”
Trump leads the GOP field in delegates heading into the next critical round of primaries on Tuesday, where key states including Florida and Ohio will make their decisions.

SANDERS CALLS CLOWNSTICK A PATHOLOGICAL LIAR



Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders bitch slapped [Fuckface Von Clownstick] Donald Trump during the CNN town hall meeting last night, calling the GOP front-runner “a pathological liar” which drew a boisterous applause form the crowd.

Sanders went on to say:

"Our campaign does not believe in and never will encourage anybody to disrupt anything. We have millions of supporters, and people do what they do, and people have the right to protest. I happen not to believe that people should disrupt anybody’s meetings, but let me say something about Mr. Trump. Some of you may have read just a few hours ago that Mr. Trump said that he is prepared to pay for the legal costs of an individual who sucker-punched somebody at a recent event. He is going to pay the legal fees of somebody who committed a terrible act of violence. What that means is that Donald Trump is literally inciting violence with his supporters. He is saying if you go out to beat somebody up, that is okay, I’ll pay the legal fees. That is an outrage and I would hope that Mr. Trump tones it down big time and tells his supporters that violence is not acceptable in the American political process."

Trump, to this hour, blames everyone but himself for the violence and anger at his rallies. This is the Clownstick we've come to learn and love, once an asshat, always an asshat.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH MEET FREEDOM TO ASSEMBLE

VIDEO COURTESY OF MSNBC FREE SPEECH MEETS FREEDOM TO ASSEMBLE



Rachel Maddow argued on Friday that the unrest surrounding [Fuckface Von Clownstick's]
Donald Trump’s cancelled campaign rally in Chicago has its roots in political science.
“When you look at the way that Mr. Trump has been talking about the organic existence of both protesters against him and violence toward those protesters at his event, when you look at the way that he has encouraged it in an escalating way leading to this inevitable event tonight in Chicago, I think that it is impossible to say that this is an accident,” she said.
Trump said the rally was canceled because of concerns over attendees’ safety while also claiming that he did not mean to provoke violence at his events. But local police said in a statement on Friday night that they neither told him there was a safety issue inside the venue at the University of Illinois-Chicago nor that he should postpone the rally.

Wing nut front-runners’ remarks also run counter to documented instances where his supporters have attacked non-violent demonstrators. Maddow said Trump’s rhetoric matches “a classic strong man political tactic” more commonly seen in other countries.
“Violence at these events, which may start organically, is in effect spot lit and encouraged to the point where it becomes something that is legitimately out of control of anyone,” she explained. “And then the spectacle of political violence is itself seen as something that is a problem that needs to be solved by this strongman character who incited the initial event in the first place.”

FUCKFACE VON CLOWNSTICK DOUBLES DOWN AT VIOLENCE AT RALLIES



A day after a black man was punched in the face by a white Donald Trump rally attendee and then wrestled to the ground by police officers, Trump shrugged off any responsibility and expressed sympathy for the anger his supports feel.

Asked at Thursday’s Republican debate whether he might have created a tone of violence, Trump responded “I hope not. I truly hope not.” While saying he has not condoned violence against protesters, he defended his supporters as having “tremendous passion.”
“When they see protesters, when they see what’s going in on the country, they have anger. They don’t like seeing bad trade deals, higher taxes, loss of their jobs.”
Violence by Trump supporters has been a recurring issue at his campaign events.

Moderator Jake Tapper noted that Trump has frequently egged on his supporters, “including February 23: ‘I’d like to punch him in the face,’ referring to a protester. February 27: ‘In the good ol’ days, they’d have knocked him out of seat so fast.’ February 1: ‘Knock the crap out of them, would you? Seriously, okay? Just knock the hell.” He also noted that Trump promised last month to pay for the legal fees of any supporter who roughs up a protester.
“We have some protesters who are bad dudes, they have done bad things,” Trump replied, “They are swinging, they are really dangerous and they get in there and start hitting people. And we had a couple big, strong, powerful guys doing damage to people — not only the loudness, the loudness I don’t mind. But doing serious damage.”

This is a prime example, the by-product if you will of low IQ humans listening to the daily red met bullshit of Fuckface Von Clownstick. For Trump to not condone this stuff, garners him asshole of the day.

Congrats numb-nuts, enjoy, you earned it!

CLOWNSTICK GOON ROUGHS UP REPORTER

Fuckface Von Clownstick campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is under fire for getting rough with a female reporter.

The Daily Caller’s Jamie Weinstein took to Twitter on Tuesday night to report that his girlfriend, Breitbart’s Michelle Fields, was grabbed by the arm and almost taken to the ground by Clownstick’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski at a press event in Florida.

Weinstein says the incident happened when Fields tried to ask Trump a tough question.

An unnamed witness corroborates Weinstein’s account, according to Politico.
“Fields was attempting to ask Trump a question as he exited the press conference. Secret Service was starting to clear a path, when Fields was forcibly grabbed on her arm by Lewandowski, moving her out of the way and nearly bringing her down to the ground, a source who witnessed the situation told POLITICO.”
The witness told Politico that Fields was “clearly roughed up.”

Breitbart, a politically conservative website, has been overwhelmingly supportive of Trump. Unnamed sources from inside the organization even complained to Buzzfeed in August that they believed Trump was giving money to the publication in exchange for glowing coverage.

In a statement, Breitbart CEO Larry Solov called the incident “unacceptable” and said “Corey owes Michelle an immediate apology.”

Fields isn’t the only female reporter to be mistreated by Clownstick and his staffers. Trump initiated an ongoing campaign against Fox’s Megyn Kelly after she asked him pointed questions at the first GOP debate.

Last month, TIME photojournalist Chris Morris was put in a choke hold and thrown to the ground by a Secret Service agent in an incident that is under investigation.

OLBERMANN IS BACK, IF ONLY FOR A BRIEF MOMENT TO DESTROY CLOWNSTICK

Keith Olbermann blistered [Fuckface Von Clownstick] Donald Trump in a column for the Washington Post on Tuesday, portraying him as being oblivious when it came to being a landlord, let alone a presidential candidate.
“Take away the un-mappable comb-over and the unstoppable mouth and the Freudian-rich debates about genitalia, and there is no Trump campaign,” Olbermann wrote. “Donald Trump’s few forays into actual issues suggest he is startlingly unaware of how the presidency or even ordinary governance works.”
Olbermann stated that he was moving out of a Trump-owned building in New York City after nine years out of the feeling that the Republican presidential candidate’s very name has “degraded the public discourse and the nation itself.”

Olbermann pointed to a University of Massachusetts at Amherst study showing that the real estate magnate won the heaviest support from Republican voters with “authoritarian inclinations.”
“There could still be enough idiots to elect Trump this November. Hell, I was stupid enough to move into one of his buildings,” Olbermann wrote.
Olbermann added that Trump’s lackadaisical nature; according to Olbermann, it took months for his staff to complete the repairs when his building’s elevator broke down, as well as several heating units.

Olbermann said:
“If there is a President Trump and he decides to build this ludicrous wall to prevent the immigration from Mexico that isn’t happening, and he uses that same contractor, it’ll take them about a thousand years to finish it,”
If only Olbermann could find a venue that suited him full time, his daily slamming of the green slimy two toed sloth [GOP] is greatly missed, especially by this blogger.

COMEDY CENTRAL’S TREVOR NOAH SAYS TRUMP’S DICK IS HUGE AND HE’S USING IT TO FUCK THE GOP

Trevor Noah attempted on Monday night to settle the “great debate” regarding Donald Trump’s penis.
“I’ve gotta say, personally? I think it’s huge,” Noah said. “After all, he’s using it to fuck the entire Republican Party.”
Noah showed footage of last week’s Republican candidate debate in Detroit, during which Trump “reassured the American public” regarding his genitalia following a swipe by Sen. Marco Rubio.
“The thing that people don’t actually know is, it’s someone else’s huge penis and Trump just licenses his name on it,” said Noah.
But Sen. Ted Cruz’s victories in Kansas and Maine over the weekend, Noah argued, showed that Trump was “more of a grower than a shower.”

Still, Republicans at this point are “praying for chaos” and hoping Trump’s rivals can hang on as long as possible in an effort to stop him from accumulating enough delegates from cinching the party’s presidential nomination. Noah pointed out that Rubio and his staff are working on a plan to upend Trump at the Republican National Convention if possible.
“Ah, democracy — where every vote counts,” Noah sighed. “As long as that vote doesn’t go against the people who actually control the party, in which case they will disregard your vote, replace it with their vote — and then, every vote will count.”

BERN AFTER READING

It’s hard not to enjoy the show and watch the GOP eat their own. Reagan must be spinning in his grave as his 11th Commandment is broken, shredded, stomped upon and burned. It sets up the Democrats for a slam-dunk this fall. However, we should watch carefully and with caution because our opportunity could turn on a dime.

Bernie has tapped into the same angst on the left that Trump has on the far right. Lets face it, we all know and agree with Bernie’s message – the system is rigged, the game’s not fair and the little guy is always going to get screwed if someone doesn’t look out for his interests. Luckily we have Hillary to do that.

Hillary needs to be louder and prouder! Show us one more time what we know she’s capable of - great leadership. I learned long ago there’s no such thing as a free lunch. I just want fair opportunity for success and I like having a safety net to protect patriots like us from hard times – like when bankers trash the world economy.

We just don’t need to win this fall – we need to win big – like 48 states big. We need turn out to match 2008. Why? Because we need to send a message to the Trump trolls that we’re taking our country further away from them. Their ideology is an epic fail!

The GOP paints us Dems as fools – looking for free stuff, weak on crime and national defense, and godless. Why do we take that crap? We have the greatest military in the world. Its not about troop levels its about being battlefield efficient. We don’t need troop levels from WWII.

Bernie lit the fire and Hillary needs to stoke more!

How many times do we need to read about industry needing more H1-B visa? Where’s the investment in our own workers? Why wont these companies hire and train the millions of displaced high tech workers?

They tell us that our educational system is weak and our schools aren’t preparing kids for jobs? Why don’t these fools want to invest in their future workers/consumers?

Hold up the mirror so folks see these phonies for what they accuse Trump of being – business morons, weak on Foreign Policy with ineffective wars – dishonest and a bunch of liars.

The GOP establishment wants it cheap and easy. They don’t want to invest in America, they want to frack America! That’s why Trump really is the perfect metaphor for what they really are.

Eight years ago I was excited to think we were on the brink of 16 years with a Democrat in the Oval Office. I’m even more excited to think it could be 24 – now lets deliver this. Time to pay it FORWARD.

FAUSTIAN DEAL WITH THE RACIST DEVIL

Bill Maher said on Friday that he almost felt bad for the Republican Party with regards to Donald Trump — except he doesn't.
“They made a Faustian deal with the racist devil years ago and now those chickens are coming home to roost,” he said of the party bracing for the prospect of having Trump as its presidential nominee, while also mocking House Speaker Paul Ryan for claiming that the GOP “does not prey on peoples’ prejudices.”
“What about voter ID laws?” Maher asked. “What about once defending the guy who gets shot, the black guy, instead of the cop. Who are they kidding? This is the party they are and Trump is just the latest.”
Conservative author Matt Lewis tried to argue that Trump did not represent the party as a whole, pointing to Ryan, Sen. Marco Rubio and himself as people who represent a “solutions-based” conservative philosophy.

Trump, Lewis said, was the product of a dumbing down of the GOP, who had injected “white identity politics” into his platform.

Maher scoffed at Lewis’ argument, saying that Trump’s ideas are actually “very not new.”
“It was called the Southern Strategy when Nixon did it,” Maher argued. “Reagan started his campaign in Philadelphia, Mississippi. It’s always been a winking campaign to get white people, mostly, who have a resentment to vote racially. Let’s not pretend this is new.”
“I would say that the Republican Party — at least if you look at the people who are running for president — are much more diverse,” Lewis fired back.

“The two Hispanics want to put other Hispanics on cattle carts and throw them out of the country,” Maher replied.

ROMNEY THROTTLES CLOWNSTICK

Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential nominee four years ago, attempted to eviscerate Donald Trump on Thursday in an 18-minute speech that questioned the GOP front-runner's temperament, intelligence and honesty.

It was a sober, direct attack — tougher than Trump has faced from any other Republican in this campaign.

But tucked in Romney's takedown was a shaky path forward. He didn't endorse any of the other three Republicans in the race — Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz or Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Romney instead said he would vote for anyone who could beat Trump in any state, essentially a route that he hopes would lead to a rare brokered convention, where Republicans could try to wrestle away the nomination from Trump.

He also hoped the remaining candidates can coordinate into an anyone-but-Trump brigade.




He questioned Trump's temperament, reminding the crowd that the GOP front-runner mocked a disabled reporter, attributed Fox News' Megyn Kelly's tough questions to her menstrual cycle and bragged about his marital affairs.

Romney questioned Trump's sincerity, suggesting that the candidate has changed positions — or at least hinted that he's willing to — on issues such as immigration and releasing his tax returns.

Romney said he understood the anger felt by American voters and that presidents have previously channeled such anger into purpose.
"Mr. Trump is directing our anger for less-than-noble purposes. He creates scapegoats of Muslims and Mexican immigrants. He calls for the use of torture and for killing the innocent children and family members of terrorists. He cheers assaults on protesters. He applauds the prospect of twisting the Constitution to limit First Amendment freedom of the press," he said. "This is the very brand of anger that has led other nations into the abyss."
The 64 thousand dollar question will be if Romney's remarks or any move by members of the Republican establishment will blunt Trump's momentum. Hinckley Institute Director Jason Perry said polls show Trump voters "are locked," but he noted there remains a slim chance to stop the front-runner.

Romney's speech followed Twitter sniping with Trump in which he suggested there was a "bombshell" in Trump's tax returns. Perry said those clashes led Romney to try a more direct assault and helped to draw attention to the speech.

CLIMATE CHANGE AND TRUMP, GOP DENIES THEM BOTH

Trevor Noah explained on Wednesday that he came to two realizations while watching primary results come in a night earlier.

“People are batshit crazy,” Noah said. “And also, a lot of Republicans are treating Donald Trump’s takeover the way they treat climate change — in other words, they deny it.”

VIDEO COURTESY OF COMEDY CENTRAL



To substantiate his position, Noah showed Sen. Marco Rubio’s attempt to somehow spin Trump’s seven wins on Super Tuesday into a positive for himself. Noah went on to say:
“Like antibiotic-resistant bacteria, Donald Trump is an uncomfortable reality,” 
Noah also laughed at Sen. Ted Cruz for insisting that winning four out of 15 contests thus far made him the party’s only viable challenger against the real estate magnate.
“You’re not co-winners, Ted Cruz,” Noah said. “Just the way he says it: ‘Every one of those states has been won by Donald Trump or myself … And if you look at myself and Jay-Z combined, we have both slept with BeyoncĂ© on numerous occasions, and that is why I will stop Obama.'”
The saddest part of the whole affair, he said, was that political climate change and its environmental counterpart shared one characteristic.

“Regardless of whose fault it is, Republican denial is going to end up hurting all of us,” Noah said.

THE RISE OF THE 6TH GRADE BULLY



It hit me right after the last republican debate the other night– these guys are just the like bullies I knew in middle school! Donald on Cruz “He’s a liar” Cruz on Trump “..who the heck knows what he would do? Even Donald doesn’t know what he would do.”

Trump on Rubio: 
“Little Marco, applies makeup with a trowel” then mocks him for needing to drink water and sweating too much”.
Back and forth, round and round. Robot Rubio, The spray tan Donald. Hair force one. Sorry, I know, lame ass (but true) puns. Remember the playground from 6th grade? Sound familiar? Testosterone was just starting. Fart joke, butt jokes, and yes…dick jokes.

 So it came as a real surprise that the worst attack that followed days later was by Marco Rubio…”the Donald is 6’ 2’ and did you see his hands? They’re so small….you know what they say about men with small hands”

Yep, he went there. Are you kidding me GOP? This is your new “anointed one”. This first class a-hole just showed us how immature he really is. The same Florida senator who said, appearing on Fox and Friends back last June:
“We already have a president now that has no class. We have a president now that, you know, does selfie stick videos, that invites YouTube stars there, you know, people who eat cereal out of a bathtub.”
Calling him unfit to be President? Bingo Marco – You aren’t either; by your own standards no less! These morons can’t get out of their own way!

Then there’s Religious Liberty. Gov. Kasich went further than any of his rivals in dismissing — even belittling — the idea that businesses should be able to claim religious liberty and allow them not to cater to gay and lesbian couples.
“Tomorrow, maybe I won’t sell to somebody who’s divorced,” Mr. Kasich said, his voice rising.
“If you’re in the business of commerce, conduct commerce. That’s my view. And if you don’t agree with their lifestyle, say a prayer for them when they leave.”
Deafening silence fell across the stage. Republican talking heads almost exploded with that position the following day

With most republicans I know, they are ready for Rubio to be the prom king. So let’s play out the Marco campaign – Shouts from the floor in Cleveland – MARCO!...(from the far side of the arena) RUBIO. MARCO! RUBIO! I wonder, am I at another 6th grade pool party? Maybe Marco will invite all to play a game of stickball.

Your unfriendly neighborhood Tea bagger – he wants Trump. I kind of feel bad for The Donald. He’s been taking it on the chin, feigning not knowing who David Duke was, or having earpiece issues about why he should decline the white supremacy endorsement, So let’s give them a winning hashtag for the rest of the campaign - #feeltheorangeburn

“TAKE RESPONISBILITY FOR THE MOUTHPIECE”

Stephen Colbert said Donald Trump failed the easiest political test of all when he fumbled a chance to disavow the Ku Klux Klan and arguably its most famous former leader.

The Republican presidential candidate told CNN’s Jake Tapper that he would need to do more research on the KKK or its former grand dragon, who said he’s backing Trump in the election.
“Trump needs to know before condemning David Duke or the KKK — it’s not like they’re Muslim or born in Mexico,” Colbert said.
The “Late Show” host said he’d previously offered advice to Hillary Clinton on admitting to accusations of lying by apologizing — which Colbert said was “the easiest question in politics.”

However, Colbert said he was wrong to say that.
“This is the easiest question in American politics,” he said, pointing to onscreen graphics of Duke and a hooded Klan member. “When someone asks you, do you disavow the Ku Klux Klan, just say yes and start high-fiving your future cabinet.”



Colbert said he could understand waiting until the end of the sentence before disavowing anyone, but he said an interviewer needs only to reach “Ku Klux” before a candidate can safely issue a condemnation.
“You know what’s coming next,” he said. “It’s not going to be Ku Klux Crispies or Ku Klux Crunch Wrap.”
Colbert said the real estate tycoon and reality TV star later offered an excuse for his hesitation, blaming a “very bad earpiece” for a misunderstanding of the question.
“He blames this one on the earpiece, but I think he should take some responsibility for the mouthpiece — also, maybe the hairpiece,” he said.
