Liz Cheney Slam Dunks Mike Johnson After He Shows Up At Trump’s Hush Money Trial

Former GOP Rep. Liz Cheney (WY) couldn’t contain her disgust when it was reported that Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA) would be in attendance today at failed former president Donald Trump’s New York hush money trial.

Earlier in the morning, The Hill reported that Johnson would indeed become the latest Republican to appear and offer moral support to Trump.

In a statement confirming Johnson’s appearance in Manhattan, the Speaker’s office called the hush money case “the sham prosecution of President Trump” and railed against “left-wing Manhattan district attorney” Alvin Bragg, who led the investigation into the former president.

On Monday, Sens. J.D. Vance (R-OH) and Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) were at the Manhattan courthouse. Both spewed fact-free conspiracy theories about Trump’s prosecution for falsifying business records and illegally interfering in the 2016 election.

But having the current speaker show up was a bridge too much for Cheney, who lit into Johnson on Twitter.

Others on social media also joined in mocking Johnson.

Mike Johnson’s SOTU Facial Expressions Lead To Hilarious Memes On Social Media

If you watched the State of the Union address Thursday evening, you may have had some trouble concentrating on what President Joe Biden said to the nation as a result of the odd facial expressions Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA) made as he listened.

Apparently forgetting that his face would also be on the screen as Biden spoke, Johnson shook his head, grimaced, and at times looked like a child who was silently praying he could run home and go to sleep.

Johnson’s facial expressions became a running joke on social media, where commentary began describing what he was thinking at various points in the speech.

Mike Johnson Accidentally Trolls Himself And Trump With An Obsequious Online Photo

In a desperate and self-serving attempt to prove his devotion to failed one-term former president Donald Trump, House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) posted a photo and message on President’s Day that quickly came back to bite him and the Donald right on their asses.

The posting was made on Twitter/X, which has become a haven for right-wing extremists since it was purchased by Elon Musk in 2022.

Be sure and notice that the photo Johnson shared features him with Trump and both of them are standing beneath an exit sign, which is appropriate when you consider that both of them need to be kicked to the curb in November.

The irony of Johnson’s photo wasn’t lost those who saw it.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Says She’s Ready To Dump Mike Johnson And Be Speaker Of The House

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) said today she’s fed up with the way Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA) continues to make deals with Democrats to fund the government and may soon demand his ouster so that she can run for the post.

Speaking with former Trump administration official Steve Bannon on his podcast, Greene said she’s “absolutely had it” with Johnson.

While discussing why Johnson is refusing to go along with a government shutdown, Greene insisted, “When all reality outside of the bubble of Washington, D.C., regular Americans could care less about a shutdown, because they view the Capitol, they view this town as the exact complete cause of all of their woes. They don’t care if it shuts down.”

“They don’t care if federal employees are not receiving a government-funded, taxpayer-funded paycheck,” Greene added. “They want the government to get out of their lives. What we should be doing is we should be going to a limited functioning.”

She also floated the idea of running for Johnson’s job is she does indeed call for a motion to vacate the speaker’s post.

“If I’m Speaker of the House, I finish the job in the House. I pass the appropriation bills, and then I tell Chuck Schumer in the Senate, it’s your job now, buddy… But right now, Mike Johnson is getting rolled in meeting after meeting after meeting.”

“Every day Mike Johnson gets closer and closer to this deal brings me closer and closer to vacating the chair because I have absolutely had it.”

No one is extremist enough for the MAGA wing of today’s GOP. And if indeed Greene does become speaker of the House, God help us all.

Social Media Cringes Over Video Of Speaker Mike Johnson At A ‘Purity Ball’ With His 13-Year-Old Daughter

Unearthed video of House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) at a “purity ball” with his daughter, Hannah, who was 13 at the time, is making the rounds on social media and drawing plenty of reaction this morning.

According to ABC News, the footage comes from a 2015 German news segment.

The German news segment documented Johnson and his family preparing for and then attending a purity ball, a controversial formal dance event, popular among some conservative Christians, that gained notoriety in the early 2000s. At a typical event, fathers and their teenage daughters dress in formal ball attire for a night that involves dinner and dancing and culminates with the daughter signing a pledge to her father to abstain from dating and to remain sexually abstinent until marriage.

The news segment examines purity balls and the general purity movement among conservative Christians through the lens of the Johnson family. It features clips of Johnson and his daughter at the ball with numerous other father-daughter pairs, and shows Johnson’s daughter vowing to him to live a life of purity, as well as her signing a pledge.

Purity balls are common among right-wing evangelicals in the United States, even though research shows such events actually lead to increased pregnancy among teens.

The fact that the current leader of the House took his daughter to an event where she pledged to him that she’d remain chaste led to lots of commentary on Twitter.
