Laura Loomer is a far right conspiracy theorist who also happens to be (surprise!) a fanatical supporter of failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump.
Loomer ran for a congressional seat in Florida during the 2020 election and got her clock cleaned, losing by over 80,000 votes, a full 20 points behind the Democrat, Rep. Lois Frankel, who emerged victorious in the 21st district of the Sunshine State.
But Loomer is now claiming (much like the orange menace who was once president) that she lost because the election was stolen from her.
Appearing on a podcast hosted by Joe Pags, Loomer had this to say:
Loomer’s comments set off a firestorm of ridicule on Twitter:
There’s an old expression, “Lose with dignity and celebrate with grace.” Clearly, Republicans have no idea what that means.
Former President Bill Clinton spent Friday night in the hospital due to a urinary tract infection which reached his bloodstream.
The 42nd president is reportedly “on the mend” after receiving antibiotics intravenously, according to CNN:
“He was admitted to the ICU for close monitoring and administered IV antibiotics and fluids. He remains at the hospital for continuous monitoring,” according to a joint statement Thursday evening from Dr. Alpesh Amin, chair of medicine at UC Irvine Medical Center, and Dr. Lisa Bardack, Clinton’s personal primary physician. They said that Clinton was in the ICU for privacy and safety, not because he needs intensive care.
News of Clinton’s illness was also reported by Fox News, which loves to give illusion that it actually covers the news and isn’t just involved in spreading right-wing propaganda and conspiracy theories.
However, on the Fox News website, comments regarding the former president’s health scare were disgusting and downright deplorable. In other words, exactly what we’ve come to expect from Republicans, especially in the Age of Trump. Here’s a sampling:
I’m sure it is an STD he caught from Epstein Island. I wonder if Hillary brought the painting of him in the blue dress from Epstein’s living room to comfort him in the dire time.
Not Covid-19 related for ol’ dirtbag bill means: his herpes flared up just as the claps acted up and spurred his ghonerea into full beast mode until his syphilis came on full motion and swolled up his balls into grapefruits. A hospital trip was warranted, besides with bill being buddies with ol’ bill gates, he can’t ley anybody know he has the virus with the vaccine in his creepy filthy body.
Hopefully he will go slowly, with excruciating pain and agony.
What would really be great is if all his nurses were guys who identify as girls.
What’s ironic is that many of those who commented are probably Trump worshipers. They idolize a man who has admitted that he lusted for his own daughter when she was only 13, has been accused of sexual assault and rape by dozens of women, and paid off a porn star so she wouldn’t disclose the affair she had with him.
You probably recall that back in July, while he was on vacation in Montana, Fox News host Tucker Carlson was approached by a man named Dan Bailey who told him to his face:
And now, yet again, Carlson has proved that he is indeed the worst human being known to mankind for comments he made about Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg taking family leave since he and his husband, Chasten, recently adopted twins.
On his show Thursday evening, Carlson not only chided Buttigieg for taking leave (which he’s entitled to under the law), but he also decided he’d toss in a line about how he wondered if “breastfeeding” had worked out.
What in the hell is that all about? Is Carlson just trying to let his audience know he hates Buttigieg because he’s gay, or is he suggesting that two men shouldn’t be allowed to adopt?
Whatever Carlson’s point was, his comments were met with anger and disdain on Twitter:
UPDATE: Secretary Buttigieg responded to Carlson during an appearance on “Deadline: White House, remarking:
A Florida restauranteur thought he’d share his love of failed, one-term former President Donald Trump with the world and posted a sign outside his restaurant in which he declared:
Eddie Lubic, who owns Eddie’s Ristorante in Jupiter, put the sign up a few weeks ago, and many patrons have taken his advice and are refusing to eat at the Italian eatery, according to the Palm Beach Post.
Lubic removed the sign, but didn’t have enough sense to leave well enough alone. Instead, he replaced it with one that reads:
And now, as you’d expect, Lubic is whining, even though he has no one to blame but himself:
Lubic also bemoaned the fact that the entire fiasco has been tough on his employees:
But did Lubic admit he’d been wrong and apologize for shooting himself, his business, and his employees in the foot with his caustic comments? Nope. He’s far too busy blaming others and unwilling to look in the mirror for the real culprit.
Here’s hoping Eddie’s Ristorante is soon out of business entirely.
Someone really needs to stage an intervention for Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) because he’s starting to sound like some of the deranged primetime hosts on Fox News and is even fabricating facts and figures, much like his good “friend,” the failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president, Donald Trump.
Matter of fact, Graham was appearing in Sean Hannity’s show when he began spinning a bizarre (and mostly fact-free) tale about Brazilian immigrants coming into the United States so they can make their way to Connecticut.
Yes, he really said that.
Specifically, Graham told Hannity:
A terrorist? You mean like the group of Proud Boy domestic terrorists who showed up at the Capitol on Jan. 6 and proceeded to engage in all sorts of illegal behavior, including the beating of numerous law enforcement officers? No need for them to immigrate because they’re already here even though every last one of them needs to be in prison for the next 100 or so years.
The Washington Postwas unable to verify Graham’s massive lie, but a spokesperson for the senator was only too happy to double down on the fabrication:
Kevin Bishop, a spokesman for Graham, defended the senator’s comments, citing what he saw during his recent trip to the border and news reports about Brazilian immigrants. Bishop also provided photographs of luggage and shoes taken at the border.
“They have had thousands of Brazilians coming through there,” Bishop said. “As Senator Graham noted in Yuma, the luggage was nicer than his own.”
None of the luggage in the photos provided to The Washington Post appeared to be Gucci. The most obvious clothing in the photos was a pair of fairly clean Puma tennis shoes without shoelaces.
Quite clearly, Lindsey made up his story just so he could go on Hannity’s show and terrify the gullible lemmings who watch the network and believe the BS they’re fed.
Twitter users, however, were only too happy to provide the mocking the senator so richly deserved:
