New York Magazine has a feature on 12 young people with reasons they “probably won’t vote.” On Twitter I broke down some of the reasons, and some of it could well have come straight from The Onion:
Mailing stuff “gives me anxiety.” Well, we had a good run, America. But maybe the socialists could help:
Also, the country really needs to have a national conversation about how the mail works:
You’ve heard of voter suppression — I give you “voter suppression suppression”:
Who’s up for some millennial dichotomy?
But in the end, the intent of this was not to dump on people who are NOT voting for whatever reason:
Uninformed people voting for other reasons (whether it’s being coaxed or because Tom Hanks offered them a donut) are a far bigger issue.
After possible explosive devices were mailed to the Clintons, Obama, George Soros, the Time Warner building in New York City (addressed to John Brennan who is actually an MSNBC commentator) and Eric Holder (which couldn’t be delivered so it was returned to sender, and the return address was Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Florida office), former veep Joe Biden again put his self-awareness far away on the back burner for a lecture about responsible rhetoric:
Joe’s the LAST person who should wag that civility finger:
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg with Biden.
Give it a rest and go look in a mirror, Joe.
A couple days ago I wrote about an ABC News reporter referring to Beto O’Rourke as a “rock star.” SQUEE!
Here’s another totally objective “”journalist”” (for CNN hacks I use double quotes to signify super-exaggeration) proving that the DNC talking points have been received by the mainstream media:
Trump speaks to a huge, energetic crowd of tens of thousands in Texas and ZERO reporters referred to it as a “rock star” reception. Kamala Harris speaks to about a dozen onlookers in Iowa and she’s like the Beatles after landing at JFK. The country has now overdosed on media bias.
It’s been confirmed yet again that Barack Obama was not paying much attention during his own eight-year presidency — that or he’s still totally shameless. I’m pretty sure I know which one it is:
If anybody does NOT have the high ground to brag about honesty, it’s this guy.
And that is, of course, just the tip of the iceberg.
ABC News’ Paula Faris also interviewed Ted Cruz for “Sunday Morning” segment, but even though Cruz is probably going to destroy Beto O’Rourke in the Texas Senate race early next month, O’Rourke is that one that was dubbed the “rock star” in the state:
But in fairness, maybe Faris is right — O’Rourke was once in a punk band. So, considering the most recent polls, Beto’s far closer to being a “rock star” than the next Texas senator.
Can you imagine a reporter covering one of Trump’s rallies and using 20,000 screaming supporters to call the president a “rock star”? They’d get run out of the “journalism” business, which is now as “fake news” as it’s ever been.
It’s not hypocrisy if liberals do it
And the chaser:
Steyer’s also spending tens of millions of dollars to try and get Dems elected around the country. Rich white guys using their wealth to try and influence elections is bad, unless HE does it.
TOTAL mystery why so many distrust the media
CNN’s Brian Stelter hosts a show called “Reliable Sources” which regularly features Dan Rather as a guest, all while expecting everybody not to laugh at the irony. So, with that in mind, I guess what follows shouldn’t be too surprising. However, this really caught my eye in a “here’s why so many people can’t stand the media” kind of way: This is Stelter less than two years ago complaining about Trump not making himself accessible enough to the media:
And here’s Stelter this month after Trump made himself VERY accessible to the media:
Trump realizes there’s nothing he could do to make the “media” write or say anything positive, so he works around them. Meanwhile, the media keep doing more and more of everything that’s made them so incredibly distrusted by increasing numbers of people — and, even more laughable, the media blames Trump for it.
Dances With Identity Fraud thought a DNA test she took was enough to declare victory over the mockery of President Trump:
US Senator Elizabeth Warren released the results of a DNA analysis on Monday that she said indicated she had some Native American heritage – a direct rebuttal to Donald Trump, who has long mocked her ancestral claims and repeatedly referred to her as Pocahontas.
The Massachusetts Democrat and potential 2020 presidential contender challenged Trump to make good on his pledge to donate $1m to charity if she provided proof of Native American heritage, a moment that was caught on video.
The report said that if there’s Native American blood in Warren, it’s from six to ten generations ago and she “might” be between 1/64 and 1/1024 American Indian. In other words, there’s not much there:
But Warren DID manage to prove that she’s whiter than the average white American:
Way to go, Liz!
And remember, this whole thing started because Warren listed herself as “Native American” at Harvard and listed herself as a minority. She also said “her mother and father were forced to elope because of her mother’s heritage.” Now those goalposts have been moved all the way back to “see, there might have been a Native American in my family tree nine generations ago!”
The Cherokee Nation isn’t buying any of Warren’s sales pitch:
But as usual Warren knew that she could count on the MSM to help spread her BS as truth:
The burden of “proof” is practically nonexistent when the media’s trying to defend Dems.
Hillary’s going to blame Trump and Russia for this, isn’t she?
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was involved in a minor car accident in New Jersey on Tuesday prior to a fundraiser for Sen. Bob Menendez.
According to a video obtained by NTK Network, Clinton’s Secret Service van pulled into a parking garage and headed up the ramp before crashing and halting to a stop.
Everything came to a sudden grinding stop, and then Hillary emerged with a confused “what happened” look on her face. But enough about the 2016 election, here’s video of the Scooby van accident:
Senate Republicans added the required comedic effect (via Twitchy):
Probably the best thing so far about the Trump presidency is the ease at which he can drive the lefty media absolutely cuckoo for CoCo Puffs at the drop of a MAGA hat on the head of Kanye West:
Sheesh. If that’s their reaction to Kanye West in the Oval Office, don’t tell them what Bill Clinton did there!
Probably the best part was “it was an assault on our White House.” Take your meds, media, you’ve got a long ways to go — save some energy for Trump’s second term.
