Nancy Pelosi Trolls House GOP Leader As ‘Qanon’ McCarthy

Though you might not realize it, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has a wicked sense of humor. Watch an interview with her and you’ll see at least one instance where Pelosi will fire off a well-placed line that expertly skewers someone such as Donald Trump or Mitch McConnell.

But perhaps the finest bit of comedic trolling the Speaker has pulled off in recent memory took place on Saturday evening when her office put out a press release in which it was suggested that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is no longer a Republican and instead joined the nutjob conspiracy theorists of QAnon who believe that Democrats are all Satanic baby-eating ghouls who rule the world with the help of the devil.

The headline of the press release reads: “Minority Leader McCarthy (GOP) (QAnon) Embraces Marjorie Taylor Greene”

Greene, of course, is the Georgia congresswoman who has been spouting disgustingly racist and anti-Semitic bile since she first announced her candidacy.

The press release then states:

“Less than one week after placing Sandy Hook Truther Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green on the House Education Committee, Minority Leader McCarthy is facing increased criticism for his refusal to take action against the conspiracy-theory spreading Congresswoman.”

Here’s a screengrab of the full press release:

It’s hard to argue with what Pelosi is claiming. McCarthy and others in the GOP have indeed allowed the lunatics to run the asylum, and it’s destroying the Republican Party.

If the GOP cannot find a way to dump disgusting assholes like Marjorie Taylor Greene, then they deserve to go the way of the dinosaurs.

GOP Shares Portrait Of Trump That Makes Him Look Like Infamous Traitor Benedict Arnold

The Arizona Republican Party brought a wave of mockery and ridicule down on their heads with an image they shared on Twitter showing President Donald Trump as some sort of historical hero, Newsweek reports:

“The Arizona GOP tweeted the painting of Trump on Monday afternoon. In the painting, Trump is wearing a military uniform that looks like it’s from the late 1700s while holding an American flag in his left hand and touching a handgun with his right hand. A flying eagle is also pictured over his left shoulder.”

Along with the image, the Arizona GOP also fired off this message via Twitter:

“Sorry (not really), but we can’t stop fighting for election integrity! It’s just too important for our voters, our state, and our great country.”

Ok, whatever. But some sharp-eyed Twitter users were quick to note that the image of Trump reminded them of the notorious American traitor Benedict Arnold, who conspired with the British during the Revolutionary War:

Actor Jon Cryer Laid One Heck Of A Nasty Burn On Trump Sycophant Matt Gaetz

You probably remember actor Jon Cryer from the hit NBC television show “Two And A Half Men,” which ran for 12 seasons and was a giant ratings hit. Cryer co-starred with Charlie Sheen, who played his older brother, and both were hilarious, especially when it came to cutting each other down.

Cryer is an unabashed liberal, and decided to endorse a candidate for the U.S. House in Florida who is running against Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), one of the biggest kiss ass sycophants for President Donald Trump on the planet.


Cryer posted this tweet:

As you might expect, that didn’t sit well with Congressman Gaetz, who fired back with this weak response:

But Cryer was more than ready with his comeback, which managed to destroy Gaetz by using nothing but facts:

Ouch! That’s gonna leave a mark. And it damn well should.


For those of you who don’t know, Rep. Gaetz has a lot in common with Charlie Sheen, both of whom have been busted for driving under the influence. And the Florida Republican was reminded of that, too:

Not surprisingly, Gaetz didn’t respond to Cryer. He either knew he’d been beaten and would only make matters worse with another tweet, or else he was late for happy hour.

Congress Racism WTF?!

GOP Senator Tom Cotton Introduces Legislation To Punish Schools That Teach About Slavery

Proving yet again that Republicans are utterly clueless when it comes to matters of American history and racism, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) introduced a piece of legislation that withhold federal education funds to any schools that dare to teach about how African-Americans were brought to this country in chains and forced to work.


CNN reports that Cotton is specifically targeting public schools that use the recent New York Times series entitled the “1619 Project”:

“A statement from the senator’s office announcing the bill introduction states that the legislation will be titled the Saving American History Act of 2020 and ‘would prohibit the use of federal funds to teach the 1619 Project by K-12 schools or school districts. Schools that teach the 1619 Project would also be ineligible for federal professional-development grants.'”


Cotton even touted his legislation with great pride:

How is learning about the history of this country and of the ugly stain of slavery Marxist propaganda? And if it is, wouldn’t that make any legislation to deny the teaching of it be an attempt to impose intellectual fascism on the educational system, which is supposed to encourage debate instead of preventing it before it ever begins?


Like so many of his colleagues in the GOP, Cotton thinks the issue of slavery is in the past and has no relevance to today’s world. Some Republicans have even suggested that the election of Barack Obama in 2012 proves the United States isn’t racist. If that were true, then George Floyd and so many other black men would still be alive.

Granted, Cotton’s has no chance of passing the full Senate, but his legislation is a slap in the face of legitimate inquiry into the more troubling aspects of American history. And God knows there’s plenty of those to take a closer look at.

Tom Cotton and his ilk need to be voted out of office. They don’t have the sense that God promised a billy goat.

GOP Whining The Trump Adminstration WTF?!

Meghan McCain: Trump Paying Off A Porn Star Makes Him Just Like The Founding Fathers (VIDEO)

If you thought you’d heard every possible excuse for Donald Trump being a perv and womanizing pig, Meghan McCain of The View just vaulted into first place with her ridiculous defense of the Cheater-in-Chief Thursday.

During a discussion of the raid on the office and residences of Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, McCain tried to compare Trump’s hush money payment of $130,000 to adult film actress to actions taken by Founding Father Alexander Hamilton:

“In 1791, Alexander Hamilton paid off his mistress’ husband. Paying off mistresses has been going on since literally the birth of our democracy.”

Two points that need to be made in response to what McCain said:

  • Alexander Hamilton was never elected president.
  • Two wrongs don’t make a right.


Co-host Sonny Hostin quickly reminded McCain of some relevant facts that she conveniently forgot to mention, telling her:

“I am such a traditionalist, as many people know, and I am so offended by these allegations of love child, and sleeping with a porn star when your wife just had a baby—and people should care about it. But people should also care that these may be illegal campaign contributions used to conceal these affairs so as to influence the outcome of the election, because if people know about all of this stuff maybe they wouldn’t have voted for him.”

But McCain wasn’t about to be deterred from her parade of stupid, declaring:

“I’m not surprised by this. Who’s surprised by this? The idea that he possibly impregnated someone, slept with a million women—we know this about President Trump.”

Isn’t the President of the United States supposed to serve as a role model to the country, especially to young Americans? If so, then Donald Trump may be the worst role model on the face of the earth.

And while no one is perfect, Trump proves that the sleaziest, most disgusting asshole imaginable can indeed be the leader of the free world.

No wonder the rest of the planet is laughing at us.
