Dem Congresswoman Throws MAJOR Shade At Matt Gaetz During Wednesday Hearing

At a hearing of the House Rules Committee on Wednesday, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) got a painful reminder of the fact that he’s under investigation for sexually trafficking young girls.

The committee was meeting to discuss a criminal referral for Steve Bannon to be held in contempt of Congress after he refused to testify before the January 6 Select Committee.

Gaetz was present as a witness to defend Bannon and argue against holding him in contempt when Rep. Norma Torres (D-CA) hinted at the accusations that have been made against the Florida congressman.

Torres began by remarking:

“It is unfortunate that we have to look at the moral character of how people deny and try to try and twist the truth around what happened. People died.”

And then she brought the shade, making it clear what she thought about Gaetz and the charges against him by noting:

“This is not about someone being sexually assaulted or somebody paying to have sex with a young girl or somebody not protecting people that are under their jurisdiction. This is about our democracy.”

Ouch! That burn is going to leave a mark.

On Monday, Gaetz got more bad news when a federal judge agreed to delay the sentencing of his former “wingman,” Joel Greenberg for another four months because he’s providing so much information to prosecutors:

Federal prosecutors told the judge they needed more time due to the breadth of leads Greenberg has handed over and the “number of lines of investigations” investigators are pursuing.

“This is obviously not a normal situation,” U.S. attorney Roger Handberg told the judge. “Mr. Greenberg is a prolific criminal.”

“Mr. Greenberg was not alone,” Handberg added. “This is an unusual situation with a number of lines of investigation we are pursuing.”

Everywhere he turns, Gaetz is getting reminded of the fact that he could wind up spending the rest of his life in prison for his actions with a 17-year-old girl. It couldn’t possibly happen to a more deserving douchebag.

New Poll: Melania Trump Is One Of The Least Admired First Ladies In History

Much like her husband, former first lady Melania Trump is a divisive figure, claiming to care about the issue of online bullying yet never calling out the failed former president for his countless attacks on others via social media.

Just how unpopular is Melania? According to a new poll from Zogby Analytics, she’s near the bottom when it comes to favorite first ladies in modern history, The Daily Mail reports:

Jacqueline Kennedy tops a new poll of America’s favorite first ladies while current occupant Jill Biden comes in near the middle and Melania Trump was second from the bottom. 

Zogby Analytics polled a sampling of Americans for their thoughts on the past 12 women who have served as first lady. 

The results were based on how many of the 5,437 likely voters said each of the First Ladies was great. 

Be sure and note that Michelle Obama is second only to the late Jackie Kennedy in the poll, which is certain to enrage Donald Trump and his supporters, who have long tried to denigrate Mrs. Obama and her husband.

The fact that current First Lady Jill Biden is ranked so high though her husband has been in the White House for less than a year is also notable.

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Melania is near the bottom of the poll. Keep in mind a few of the more controversial things she did and said while her husband was in office:

  • During a visit to see detained children at the US border, she wore a Zara jacket with “I don’t really care, do u?” emblazoned across the back. It left a bad taste in the mouths of many after her husband appeared seemingly apathetic to having separated children from their parents.
  • Melania hasn’t given many speeches, but when she did, they never went without controversy – whether she was accused of plagiarising Michelle Obama’s 2008 Democratic National Convention speech or labelled a hypocrite for celebrating diversity at the 2020 Republican National Convention (RNC) years after questioning Barack Obama’s nationality.

Though we can’t yet know if Melania’s ranking among former first ladies will improve, when you consider that her husband continues to say and do incredibly disgusting things, it seems unlikely that Mrs. #BeBest will ever be anything more than a footnote in American history that most of us would rather forget.

#TrumpInHiding Trends On Twitter After GOP Bars Donald From VA Governor Race

There’s an incredibly contentious (and closely watched) gubernatorial race taking place in the state of Virginia which pits Democrat Terry McAuliffe against Republican Glenn Youngkin, and it’s bringing lots of attention to the state as a possible harbinger of what can be expected in the 2022 midterm elections.

As you’d expect, Democrats have been sending their political stars to Virginia to campaign for McAuliffe. Among those who have made an appearance for the Democrat: President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden; former President Barack Obama; and Stacey Abrams.

You’d think the GOP would counter with the biggest name in their party, former President Donald Trump. But they haven’t, and Youngkin has taken great pains to distance himself from the Donald, The Hill reports:


Democrats are trolling Donald Trump over Virginia GOP gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin’s efforts to distance himself from the former president, including by flying a plane near his Mar-a-Lago resort asking why Youngkin won’t let Trump campaign with him in Virginia.

Add to that a brilliant video from the good folks at MediasTouch, and what you have is a viral posting along with a trending hashtag on Twitter: #TrumpInHiding. Here’s the video:

Since that video was posted on social media, the new hashtag has been used nearly 32,000 times by Twitter users, sending it through the proverbial roof and no doubt enraging Trump, who can’t respond because he’s banned from Twitter and Facebook.

Want to see some of the tweets trolling Trump? Of course you do:

Fox News Host Is Furious The US Military Has Issued A ‘Stand Down’ Order On White Supremacy

Fox News host Rachel Campos-Duffy said Sunday that she’s upset the U.S. armed forces have been given a “stand down” order when it comes to white supremacy.

Campos-Duffy began by noting that she considered former President George W. Bush’s speech on the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks to be “jarring” because he dared to include a mention of domestic terrorism, which he equated with the 9/11 terror attacks by calling them “children of the same foul spirit.”

That, according to Campos-Duffy, “takes the focus off of who we need to be focused on.”

“And I also think that motivations matter. The Islamic terrorists want to kill Americans. They hate Western civilization. They hate America. They have lots of reason for that.”

Yeah, and the domestic terrorists who showed up at the Capitol on Jan. 6 also wanted to kill Americans, openly calling for Mike Pence to be hanged.

But Campos-Duffy was only getting warmed up when it came to proving just how utterly clueless and willfully ignorant she is:

“Regardless of what you think about what happened on Jan. 6, the people there went in with the flags. They were not America haters. They were people who were angry and expressing their anger in a very bad way about an election result. Those are not equivalent things.”

Sorry, Rachel, but an American terrorist is in many ways a bigger threat because these domestic extremists live among us and pretend to love their country right before they start attacking it.

Campos-Duffy concluded her remarks with this bit of crap:

“Well, they had a stand down, right, on white supremacy in the military. And I guess I’m just not seeing that that’s worthy of a stand down.”

So the U.S. military should encourage white supremacy even though it would be terrible for overall morale in the armed forces? That’s the way you destroy a fighting force: By dividing it against itself.

Before Rachel Campos-Duffy decides to lecture the military on what’s best for those who protect us, she needs to volunteer for active duty. Until she does, she can just shut the hell up.

Capitol Rioter Calls Newsmax From Lockup To Whine That He Wants To Go Home

Christopher Worrell wants us to feel sorry for him even though he got himself arrested for being one of the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol on January 6 and now can only think of going home instead of being locked up in pretrial detention.

Worrell is also a member of the Proud Boys, a far-right extremist, neo-fascist gang of thugs that promotes and engages in political violence across the United States.

But according to Worrell, he’s ever so sorry for what he did and thinks the government should give him a break because he’s suffering from a disease and needs urgent medical attention.

During a phone interview with Newmax host Greg Kelly, Worrell whined for nearly ten minutes, telling Kelly:

“The regrets I have is, I mean, nobody I knew, talking to, during or after, had any idea that anything like that was going to occur on that day. None of us had any tendencies or anything other than the preach our First Amendment rights and protest our tyrannical government, it seems like, you know, they’re just worried about their own political agenda.”

Boo freaking hoo! You were in the wrong place at the wrong time, huh, Christopher? Then how do you explain the fact that you’re also charged with using pepper spray on a law enforcement officer? That’s not a protest; it’s assault and battery.

That’s not all Worrell had to say.

Once he had whined and sounded as if he was about to cry as he alleged that he’s not getting adequate medical treatment for his non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, he remarked:

“I have another court hearing coming up soon, and we’re hoping the courts are going to see, but, you know, they’re just, they’re mistreating me. They promised me treatment way back in April, and yet here I am, still 166 days later with no treatment, so that’s our plan and our hope that the courts have a little bit of compassion, let me go home to get some medical urgent medical treatment that I need.”

They’re mistreating him? Did he think being in jail would be a pleasant experience? If Chris Worrell was so damn concerned about his health, he should have stayed home on Jan. 6 instead of going to Washington looking for blood and oozing hate from every pore.

Why should we have a shred of sympathy for Worrell or any of the others awaiting their day in court? Are we supposed to buy their bullshit excuses and believe their crocodile tears now that they’re facing a long stint in prison?

There’s an old saying that was popular way back when on a show that ran in the 1970s. The show was called “Baretta” and it featured actor Robert Blake in the lead role. The theme song had this line in it:

“Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.”

That’s my advice for the traitors who stormed the Capitol. You did the crime, and now you have to do the time. End of story.
