GOP Senator Gets Righteously Mocked For Saying He Wants ‘Jesus’ Instead Of ‘Reality’ In Children’s Books

Unless you live in the state of Oklahoma or are a U.S. Senate junkie, you’ve probably never heard of Sen. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK), but after today, you may never forget his name or the ridiculous things he said at a hearing on the banning of children’s books.

During a hearing of the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, Mullin asked a witness if she thought a children’s book about race entitled Our Skin contained a better lesson on race than the well-known Christian church tune for kids, “Jesus Loves Me.”

Mullin began by reading a section of Our Skin which states that white people created a thing called “race” and then sorted humans based on their color.

“If you don’t want to answer my question, that’s fine. Let’s move on down the panel. Which one is better to be taught? This book or the ‘Jesus Loves Me’ lyrics, that say everybody’s skin doesn’t matter. They’re all precious in his sight,” Mullin angrily demanded.

Cheryl Morman, president of the Virginia Alliance for Family Child Care Associations said she agreed that Jesus was important, but Mullin cut her off to continue his ranting.

“So, which one is better?” he asked.

“But the reality is —” Morman began to respond, only to be interrupted by Mullin yet again.

After being admonished by committee chair Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) to let the witness answer, Mullin started up again: “That doesn’t answer my question. You’re not answering my question. If you don’t want to answer my question, that’s fine,” he said in a shout.

Morman: “The reality is —”

“I don’t want reality! I’m asking the question! Which one is better? That’s exactly what it is,” Mullin thundered.

Committee members began laughing and one could be heard to say, “Got it on tape.”

Backing down from the reality statement, Mullin suggested he had misspoken, but added, “Jesus is always first.”

Jesus is always first, Senator Mullin? But what if the child was raised in an agnostic or atheist household? What if the child is Muslin, or Jewish, or another denomination that doesn’t accept Jesus as savior? Are we supposed to force-feed Jesus to them? And if so, does that mean that next week we can require the Koran be read by all students? What about the Book of Satan? Will we also put that on school reading lists?

Religion has it’s place. But that place is NOT in a public school, no matter what Jesus freaks like Sen. Mullin say.

Mullin was also mocked on Twitter:

Trump’s Scottish Golf Course Has Been ‘Blacklisted’ And He May Have To Sell It

Former president Donald Trump’s dreams of hosting the British Open at his Turnberry golf resort in Scotland have been squashed flat, according to the Daily Telegraph, and it appears he would have to sell the property before it will ever be considered for the prestigious golf tournament.

Open organizers have made it clear they will not hold the tournament at Turnberry as long as it’s owned by the disgraced ex-president, especially in light of what transpired at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Peter Dawson, the former chief executive of The R&A which runs the Open, remarked in 2021 that he “had no plans to stage any of our championships at Turnberry and will not do so in the foreseeable future.”

That comment is now being echoed by a source at The R&A:

“We have no plans to stage any of our championships there in the foreseeable future and will not return until we are convinced that the focus will be on the championship, the players and the course itself.”

Another source told the Telegraph: “The way it looks now, he would have to sell up before anything changes.”

Earlier this month, the failed, twice-impeached former president said he had spent a “tremendous” amount of money redeveloping the course, adding:

“It was done with a great architect, he said. A great golf architect recommended by Peter Dawson…. I said, give me the best one, and Martin Grant Hawtree… He’s a fabulous guy, a fabulous man…. What he does is this type of course, he really did a great job.”

But all the fabulous golf architects in the world aren’t going to be able to remove the Trump stench from Turnberry, and additional criminal indictments will only made Turnberry (and Trump) more toxic.

Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Memorial Day Message Backfired Badly On Her

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-GA) message in honor of Memorial Day didn’t go very well for her, and she has no one to blame for it but herself

On Monday, Greene posted this from her Twitter account:

Take a close look at the flag on that meme. As HuffPost rightly notes, it doesn’t have the right number of stars on it.

Greene’s message contained a version of the U.S. flag with just 18 stars.

PatriotTakes, which monitors right-wing media, and several other critics spotted the error of the conspiracy theorist lawmaker, who has called for a “national divorce” and spoke last year at a white nationalist event:

There has never been an official U.S. flag with 18 stars.

It didn’t take long before Margie got lit up on social media, both for her incorrect flag and the times she’s voted against veterans.

For Independence Day in July, will Margie use a British flag?

President Biden Has The Perfect Reaction When Fox’s Peter Doocy Asks If He’d Pardon Trump

President Joe Biden had the perfect reaction when asked Monday by Fox White House correspondent Peter Doocy if he’d consider pardoning failed former president Donald Trump.

Mediaite notes that just last week Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said he would consider giving Trump a presidential pardon if he happens to be the next president.

That led Doocy to ask Biden the same question as the president was preparing to board Marine One at the White House.

“Did you see that Ron DeSantis said that if he became president, he would pardon Trump? Where are you on the idea of the president pardoning Trump?”

The president laughed, raised his hand, waved, and walked away as he remarked, “I’ll see you guys. That’s a great question.”

Pardon Trump? Sure. Right after the indicted ex-president admits that he tried to overturn the 2020 election and issues a formal apology.

Recent Photo Of Incredibly Frail Looking Trump Has People Asking If He’ll Make It To 2024

Republicans absolutely love to make fun of President Joe Biden, suggesting that he’s too old to be head of state or that he’s mentally unfit to serve.

Of course, those same people were fond of saying how vital and healthy failed one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump looked, despite the fact that he appeared to weigh at least 300 pounds and was known to prefer fast food to anything healthy.

And yet, ever since he left office, we’ve seen photos and videos of Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort in which he looks like he’s about to fall over and require CPR.

In February, we got this video of the indicted ex-president:

And earlier this month we had this one of Trump with a strange red mark on his forehead:

Now you can add a new photo of the convicted sexual assaulter taken recently in Florida, and in it Trump looks frail and downright deathly.

Holy shit! He died and no one bothered to tell him!

Is is just me, or does he look like he wouldn’t know his own name if you asked him to identify himself? They say he’s 76, but he looks closer to 90 in that photo.

Contrast that with how Biden looked today while speaking at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in honor of Memorial Day.

He looks pretty damn vital, especially when you consider he’s four years older than Trump.

The new photo of Trump drew plenty of comments on Twitter.
