"Well, give me a break. I was born when Eisenhower was president, and my odometer is about to flip over. They can't all be gems."
From 2009-2016, insulting or mocking the president's kids was a career-ending offense. But now it's back in a big way! Our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left are lining up to pick on 10-year-old Barron Trump, because it makes them feel better about losing an election to his dad. Never mind that Barron's just a kid. Never mind that he didn't choose any of this. It's OK to go after him, because he's a child of wealth and privilege who's not named Sasha or Malia.
What do you call someone who chants "Love trumps hate" and then sets a Trump supporter's hair on fire with a lighter? No, seriously. The woman who did what you're about to see, what's she called? I want to know her name.
Now that the Democrats have ceded control of the White House, that means they can do whatever they want. Especially if it's stuff they screamed about when their ideological opponents did it, or when they falsely claimed as much. Trump has been president for less than 24 hours, and already we're seeing these three American traditions making a big comeback.
I don't care who you are. #NeverTrump, #AlwaysTrump, #OkayPossiblyTrump, whatever. If you can watch this without laughing, you've got a really tough 4 years ahead of you.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I was 100% wrong about Donald Trump's electability. I didn't want Hillary to win, but I figured she would. I figured everybody was right. So waking up after election night was a nice surprise. Since then, no matter my misgivings, I keep coming back to the same thought: At least it's not her.
I don't really have anything to add beyond that. I've just been waiting 8 long years to write that headline, and I'm going to enjoy this moment.
It's not often that I link to Vox.com, but this is really, really special.
Whether you believe in gay marriage or not, one thing's for sure: There's nothing more important than the narrative. Not facts, not evidence, not... well, not even time.
If Rick Perry is at all bothered by that dishonest and inept smear attempt by the New York Times this week, he sure didn't show it during his confirmation hearing for energy secretary today. Here he is having a few laughs with Senator Al Franken:
When a man betrays his country, he should be punished for his treason. But why should an innocent woman be expected to pay for that man's crimes? That's why genetic male Bradley Manning was sent to military prison, but "Chelsea" Manning will soon go free.
Here we are, less than 24 hours away from the end of the Obama administration. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm actually a bit wistful about it. I had him pegged as a jerk all the way back in September 2008, and the past 8 years have done nothing to convince me otherwise. He's been a terrible president, he's lied to me every day of his public life, and I'm not sad to see him go. Nonetheless, he hasn't been all bad. So, here at the Top 10 Things I'll Miss Most About Obama. Drumroll, please... Number 10!
Hey, look, CNN isn't saying they want Trump to be assassinated. They've just been doing a lot of thinking about what would happen if he was.
I'm not exactly sure what Mike Pence did to piss off so many liberals who happen to be gay (and gays who happen to be liberal). Is it because he caved to their pressure on Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act? Or because he decided to go see Hamilton without their permission? Or because he's got that rugged Race Bannon look that drives them wild, but it's too agonizing to imagine doing it with a... Republican? [shudder]
Back when I was a youngster in college, we found our own ways to have good wholesome fun. Stuff like swallowing goldfish and stuffing ourselves into phone booths and carving up hobos. But that was then. Young folks these days have come up with a new way to waste everybody's time: whining about Trump!
After all, a domestic terrorist named Bill Ayers launched Obama's political career.
Notice that the two black men are at the edges of the frame. This is unacceptable, Variety. You're literally marginalizing them! #smdh
Remember Corporal Klinger on M*A*S*H? He was the fellow who wore women's clothes so the Army would declare him a Section 8 and send him home. In later seasons of the show, he gave it up and stopped being hilarious. But now, Bradley Manning has pulled off that ploy in real life. Obama is the first president in U.S. history to commute the sentence of a "woman" for the crimes of a man.
