Ted Cruz Defends Donald Trump And His Comments On ‘Rapist’ Immigrants (Video)

All aboard the Crazy Train! And the latest passenger to join us on our 2016 GOP primary journey is the junior Senator from Texas, the Lone Star Asshat himself, Ted Cruz.

Cruz made some comments about Donald Trump earlier today on the Fox News show “Fox and Friends.” Cruz, when asked about Trump’s statement on immigrants from Mexico being “rapists” remarked:

“I like Donald Trump. I think he’s terrific, I think he’s brash, I think he speaks the truth. And I think NBC is engaging in political correctness that is silly and that is wrong.”

Excuse me, Joe McCarthy, Jr., but NBC was not being politically correct. They were, instead, getting as far away from a racist, xenophobic piece of rotten tripe as they can because they happen to subscribe to the corporate philosophy that says all people in America have value, which, I do believe, is exactly what Jesus taught. You remember Jesus, don’t you, Teddy Boy? He’s that guy you pretend to model your life around when it’s politically expedient for you to do so.

Cruz, however, was not quite finished planting a big wet kiss on Trump’s gold-plated rump, and added:

“He has a way of speaking that gets attention. And I credit him for focusing on an issue that needs to be focused on.”

I do believe Ted Cruz’s family came to the United States as immigrants, and yet Cruz has the audacity to agree with a hate-filled gas bag like Donald Trump? Now that’s a level of hypocrisy you don’t often get to see in the light of day, but with Cruz, all things are possible when it comes to the outrageous. Hey, kinda like Trump.

How did the Donald respond to Cruz’s kind words? Well, with a few of his own, which couldn’t help but be about as subtle as a slap with a two-by-four. He took time on Twitter to thank the Senator, which seems odd when you consider that just a couple of months ago when asked about Cruz, Trump said:

“He’s got a hurdle that nobody else seems to have at this moment. It’s a hurdle and somebody could certainly look at it very seriously. He was born in Canada. You’re supposed to be born in this country.”

Hey, Teddy Boy, care to revise your comments on Donald Trump?

Why Chris Christie Will Never Ever Ever Be President Of The United States

Welcome to the 2016 race for President, Chris Christie. Quite frankly, I’m more than a little surprised you decided to run. Why? Well, I’ll be delighted to lay out my reasons for you:

Reason #1: You’re A Bully

Chris, you’ve basically made a career of insulting, berating, and sniping at people you disagree with. That may play well in New Jersey, but in the Midwest and Deep South it won’t. Americans don’t like bullies. We constantly cheer for the underdog, the guy who is getting beat up until one day he decides to say no more and defends himself. So your chances of ever connecting with people on a human level is virtually nil. You may say that you offer “straight talk” from a candidate, but when you engage in so-called straight talk most folks see it as being an asshat. Which of course you are.

Reason #2: You’re Up To Your Eyes In Scandal

Bridgegate, Governor. Yeah, I bet when you hear that word a migraine headache starts up at the base of your neck, doesn’t it? Several of your former aides are under federal indictment, and it’s only a matter of time before one of them cuts a deal with the U.S. Attorney and sings like a bird, spilling all the dirt on what you really knew about the matter. Then, hopefully, you will also be indicted and we’ll see how you handle the pressure. Not well, I’m betting.

Reason #3: It’s Pronounced “Jerk”

The dictionary definition of the word jerk is this: “A contemptibly obnoxious person.” Yep, that’s sure as heck you, Chris. This one is tied into the first one of you being a bully. But you also come off as a pompous, smirking jackass who thinks every question asked of you is somehow a personal affront. Members of the media hate that kind of thing, and they will rip you a new one the first time you cop an attitude with them. I’d advise you to 86 your attitude, but you know what they say: The leopard cannot change his spots.

Reason #4: Your Record As Governor

Let’s see, the credit rating for New Jersey has been downgraded seven times since you became governor. Hmm…that does not exactly inspire confidence when one considers you as President. Also, your own state says they’re sick of you. Recent polls show that 50.4 percent of people in your home state have an unfavorable opinion of you. That’s right up there with cockroaches and dandruff. Your favorable rating stands at 27.3 percent. Bottom line: You couldn’t be elected as trash collector in New Jersey right now. And now you want to take your unpopularity national? Are you kidding me?

I have no idea why Chris Christie is running for President. Maybe he wants to set up a book deal or prove something to himself. Or maybe it’s just his last lap around the track before his entire career comes crashing down around him. Whatever the reason, I place his chances at 0.01 percent. Put it this way, my dog has a better chance of being elected than he does.

NBC Brass To Donald Trump: You’re Fired!

Well well well….looks like all that bad karma Donald Trump has been putting out finally came back to bite him right on his privileged butt.

The brass at NBC Universal announced late this afternoon that it is cutting all of its ties with the Donald, meaning that the network will not televise the Miss USA pageant on July 12 or the Miss Universe pageant, both of which were co-owned by NBC and Trump.

However, perhaps most damaging to a man as conceited as Trump is the fact that NBC told him he will not be returning as host of his reality show, “The Celebrity Apprentice.”

In making their announcement, NBC said in a statement:

“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump. To that end, the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants, which are part of a joint venture between NBC and Trump, will no longer air on NBC. In addition, as Mr. Trump has already indicated, he will not be participating in ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ on NBC.”

No doubt you recall the statements NBC is referring to, in which Trump remarked:

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best…They’re sending people who have lots of problems,” Trump. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists, and some, I assume, are good people.”

Yes, some are good people, you ignorant, self-absorbed sack of human excrement. Actually, the vast majority of them are good, decent, hardworking people who contribute something to society. Which is more than we can say for you, Donald.

Trump, never shy about speaking his empty mind, said in response to the move by NBC:

“If NBC is so weak and so foolish to not understand the serious illegal immigration problem in the United States, coupled with the horrendous and unfair trade deals we are making with Mexico, then their contract violating closure of Miss Universe/Miss USA will be determined in court. Furthermore, they will stand behind lying Brian Williams, but won’t stand behind people that tell it like it is, as unpleasant as that may be.”

The difference, Mr. Trump, is that lots of people actually like Brian Williams as a human being and journalist. You, however, have no friends other than the ones you rent or buy.

Good riddance, Trump!

NC Homophobe Assaults Gay Bar Owner But Will Not Be Charged With Hate Crime

Maybe someone can explain this one to me: A guy walks into a gay bar, begins using derogatory language toward some of the patrons and the owner of the bar–because the owner also happens to be gay–physically assaults the owner several times, is arrested, and then is released on a measly $3,000 bond.

WTF?!

Sunday morning in Charlotte, North Carolina, Lucas Dylan Wilhelmson walked into The Bar at 316. He was allegedly upset that the Supreme Court had ruled in favor of same-sex marriage on Friday. He was intoxicated and looking to pick a fight.

According to Rob Tufano, spokesperson for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police department:

“From the second he started talking to people, it was downhill from there. He was looking for trouble. He said he was straight, but you could tell he obviously had deep issues from what he was saying and how he was acting. When he came in, he did not seem friendly at all. He slaps the owner several times. He continued to slap him. The owner never hits him back, according to witnesses.”

In fact, the bar’s owner, Jeff Edwards, even offered to call a cab for Wilhelmson, and he was rewarded for his good citizenship with slaps and choking by the homophobic patron. Wilhelmson also allegedly threatened to come back later and kill Edwards.

Wilhelmson will not be charged with a hate crime because North Carolina has no protection for the LGBT community in its established anti-discrimination laws.

JoJo Hammond, a friend of Wilhelmson who says she is a lesbian, blames his actions on alcohol:

“I know this boy, I know his family. When he gets a little drunk, he can be a little crazy, but I have never known him to be homophobic. When I heard of the story, I was very shocked that he would even be considered for a hate crime, because he’s just a nice kid. I have seen him when he’s had too much to drink, but a hate crime? I just don’t see that.”

First of all, Wilhelmson isn’t a “kid” as Ms. Hammond calls him. He’s a 21-year-old man who is legally responsible for his actions. Secondly, if this isn’t a hate crime, then what did he have to do to qualify for that charge? Burn the bar down?

 

For the record, this is hardly the first time Wilhelmson has been in trouble with the law. He has a rap sheet which includes assault, hit and run, and DWI.

Yeah, what a nice kid he is.

CNN Host To The Donald: ‘What’s Traditional About Being Married Three Times?’ (Video)

This is one of those days that Jon Stewart said almost made him rethink retiring from “The Daily Show.”

The setting is an interview on CNN with host Jake Tapper asking questions of Donald Trump, who, as we all know, is one of the most pompous and self-impressed men to ever roam the face of the Earth.

The question came up of Trump criticizing the Supreme Court and Chief Justice John Roberts for their 5-4 ruling which legalized same-sex marriage. Trump said the high court had let the nation down and that he supports “traditional marriage.”

I guess the Donald must support some form of marriage, because he’s on his third wife! Tapper asked Trump:

“What do you say to a lesbian who’s married or a gay man who’s married who says, ‘Donald Trump, what’s traditional about being married three times?’”

Trump replied:

“Well, they have a very good point. But I’ve been a very hardworking person. And actually, I have a great marriage, I have a great wife now. My [first] two wives were very good.”

You’ve been a hardworking person? What the hell does that have to do with it? My father worked hard for 40 years, took care of his family, and was married to my mother for 50 years before he passed away. So working hard has nothing to do with fidelity, you complete and utter hypocrite and moron!

Tapper, reminding Trump that he had neglected to directly answer the question, asked again:

“But what do you say to a lesbian or a gay man?” 

And Trump’s response is so typical that I guarantee you Jon Stewart will use it on the next edition of his show:

“I really don’t say anything. I’m just, Jake, I’m for traditional marriage.”

Translation: Yeah, you know, Jake, traditional marriage, like between a man and his billions of dollars, which I often like to rub all over my nude body. If I could marry my liquid assets, I would, but the courts tell me I can’t do that legally.

Hey, Donald, please keep running for President. Not because you have a chance or would make a good one. Nah, it’s because we all need the laughs.
