Conservatives Pitch A Massive Online Hissy Fit After Lizzo Plays A Flute Once Owned By James Madison

You may not know this, but singer Lizzo is an accomplished flutist, and was granted an extreme honor this week when the Library of Congress allowed her to play a 200-year-old crystal flute that was once owned by former president James Madison.

CNN reports that Lizzo admitted she was nervous about playing a flute once owned by a Founding Father and former president.

In footage shared by concertgoers, Lizzo excitedly and delicately handled the flute under the careful watch of Library staff and Capitol Police. She briefly shared the history of the flute with her audience and said she was “the first person to ever play it.”

“B***h, I’m scared,” she said to the audience’s laughter. “It’s crystal. It’s like playing out of a wine glass, b***h, so be patient.”

She played a note on the crystal flute, pausing excitedly after it made a sound, according to a video Lizzo shared on social media. Then, she blew a few more fluttery notes on it, cautiously twerking as she played, as is her signature. After a few seconds, she held the flute high in the air, victorious, and carefully returned it to the staff waiting a few feet away.

“B,***h, I just twerked and played James Madison’s crystal flute from the 1800s,” she said incredulously. “We just made history tonight!”

Here’s the video:

It was a beautiful and historic moment, one which the Library of Congress was glad to help make possible because it made history come alive.

Earlier this week, the Library of Congress invited Lizzo to visit its collection of 1,700 flutes, the largest in the world, per the Library. She carefully played the flute there first before she “serenaded employees and a few researchers” with a “more practical” woodwind, the Library said.

But reaction from conservatives, right-wingers, and MAGA morons was hateful, bigoted, and disgusting, which seems to be the usual for them. They seethed on social media.

GOP Congressman Seems To Suggest Drug Seizures On The US-Mexico Border Are A Bad Thing

Texas Republican Congressman Pat Fallon seems to be opposed to the fact that U.S. law enforcement officials are seizing illegal drugs on the U.S-Mexico border, which has set off a raging debate on social media.

Fallon posted this on Twitter earlier this week:

“Since Joe Biden took office — 1.2 MILLION POUNDS of illegal drugs have been seized at our southern border. If you needed more evidence that this Administration’s border policies are contributing to a surging drug crisis — look no further.”

But the drugs were seized. They didn’t make it to the streets. That’s a good thing, isn’t it?

Of course, this is just part of a larger false narrative being repeated all over Twitter and Facebook by Republicans who want to try and suggest that the Biden administration doesn’t have control of the border, despite evidence that suggests otherwise. For example:

In February, U.S. Customs and Border Protection “encountered 100,441 persons attempting entry along the Southwest border,” according to the monthly statistics it released March 10 — but it also expelled 72,113 people.

Also, President Biden, unlike Donald Trump, actually got Mexico to pay $1.5 billion for border security. Remember how Trump said Mexico would pay for his border wall? They never paid a dime. But now they have:

Mexico … agreed to contribute $1.5 billion to a joint initiative with the U.S. to improve infrastructure along the U.S.-Mexico border, according to a person familiar with the commitment.

The agreement came on the same day President Joe Biden hosted his Mexican counterpart, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, for a meeting in the Oval Office.

And now we have Rep. Fallon complaining about drug seizures. Twitter users were quick to call him out and remind him that his attempt at criticism actually makes the Biden administration look incredibly competent and successful.

Lara Trump Gets Slammed For Posting Video Of Her Son In Pouring Rain – Calls It Building ‘Character’

Lara Trump, the daughter-in-law of failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump and wife of Eric Trump, executive vice president of his daddy’s company, the Trump Organization, is getting slammed on social media for a video she posted of her 5-year-old son being forced to ride on a small children’s car in pouring rain as she notes that doing so will build “character.”

In the video, the child, Eric L. Trump, who goes by the name Luke, is seen squinting his eyes and trying to see as a torrential rain pours down on him. At one point, he also appears to be crying.

The rain is part of the first wave of storms from Hurricane Ian, which is slamming into the state of Florida, and it appears to have caught Lara by surprise, because she includes a caption on Instagram with the video that reads:

“Thought we had a clear window, turns out we built some character instead. Everyone stay safe!”

In the video, you can also hear Lara Trump remarking:

“Oh my God, Luke. Come on, you can do it, let’s go.”

This is the same son that Eric and Lara praised as being a “hyper-savant” in June, with Lara commenting:

“I feel like our son could almost be like an Elon Musk type. Because he looks at things in a way…The things he observes when he looks at like a video or picture, I’m like, ‘Wow, you’re looking at that in a way I never even thought of.’ That’s Elon Musk.”

Once the video was shared on Twitter, it didn’t take long before Lara was slammed for humiliating her son while the internet watched, which certainly seems to be a form of child abuse.

Cruelty and sadism seem to be hallmarks of the Trump family.

Eric Trump Brags That His Daddy Is A Better Golfer Than Any POTUS in History

If Eric Trump’s begging for attention from his disgraced daddy wasn’t so damn pathetic, it’d be laughable. Then again, it can actually be both.

Take, for example, the latest attempt by Eric to curry favor with his old man by sharing a meme suggesting that the failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president has the lowest golf handicap of any U.S. head of state in history.

Of course, this biased ranking is completely bogus, especially when you consider that Donnie is known to cheat when he plays a few rounds, as has been reported by Rick Reilly, who wrote the book Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump.

In the book, Reilly notes:

He exaggerates his golf scores and his handicap for the same reason he exaggerates everything. He has to. He exhibits all the traits of a narcissistic personality disorder. People with his disorder have no conscience about it. He has no sense of morality about things. He lacks empathy towards others. He’s a very ill man. He doesn’t get that other people have rights and feelings. Other people just don’t matter to him.

Cheats at golf, inflates the value of his properties so he can get larger loans, then lowballs the value of those same properties to decrease his tax bill. That’s what has him in so much trouble with New York Attorney General Letitia James, who has filed a massive civil suit against the Donald that could leave him broke and result in his company, the Trump Organization, being shut down and its assets seized.

Eric’s desperate plea for attention from his daddy drew plenty of reaction on Twitter.

Donald Trump Religion Social Media WTF?!

Trump Takes To Truth Social And Proudly Calls Himself Second Only To Jesus Christ

The most immoral man to ever hold the office of president — a man who has been married three times and cheated on all three of his wives — wants the world to know that among those who have walked the face of the earth, he is second only to Jesus Christ.

Yes, you read that correctly: Donald Trump believes that he is the second greatest human ever born outside of the Lord and Savior of the religion he professes to believe in.

Business Insider reports:

Former President Donald Trump shared a post on his Truth Social account on Friday, declaring him as “second” only to Jesus.

The post by Truth Social user @austinnegrete said: “Jesus is the Greatest. President @realDonaldTrump is the second greatest.”

It accompanied an image of a painting of Jesus by artist Dan Wilson.

Trump “ReTruthed,” or reposted, the Jesus comparison to his 4.1 million Truth Social followers.

It probably won’t surprise you to learn that this isn’t the first time Trump has put him self on the same exalted level as Christ.

In August 2019, Trump proudly told reporters “I am the chosen one” while discussing trade negotiations with China.

Reaction on social media to Trump’s latest claim was immediate and harsh.
