Congress Corruption Crime

Michael Cohen Just Got Some Sweet Revenge On Matt Gaetz

Back in February of 2019, a day before Michael Cohen was set to testify to the House Oversight Committee about business deals and hush money payoffs he made to women former President Donald Trump had extramarital affairs with, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) sent out a threatening tweet:

Hey @MichaelCohen212 – Do your wife & father-in-law know about your girlfriends? Maybe tonight would be a good time for that chat. I wonder if she’ll remain faithful when you’re in prison. She’s about to learn a lot…— Matt Gaetz (@mattgaetz) February 26, 2019

That tweet got Gaetz in hot water with the House Ethics Committee, which later admonished him, Politico reported in August of 2020:

“While the 10-member panel determined that the Florida Republican’s ‘actions did not reflect creditably upon the House of Representatives,’ the committee also concluded in its report that he ‘did not violate witness tampering and obstruction of Congress laws’ and declined to issue more severe sanctions against the Florida Republican.”

Gaetz later deleted the controversial tweet and apologized for posting it, although few believed his apology was the least bit sincere.

Now we fast-forward to 2021, and Gaetz is the one under the microscope, facing the prospect of serving the rest of his life in federal prison for trafficking a 17-year-old girl and paying for some of the assignations via the Venmo mobile payment app, meaning he left a record of all his financial transactions.

Gaetz is also getting hit with some enormous payback from Cohen, with the ex-president’s former attorney sending a few tweets that are clearly aimed at the Florida congressman:

Ouch! Now that’s some masterful trolling by Cohen, who has paid his debt to society and noted that he’s eager to help prosecutors who are working to indict the Donald on a laundry list of charges that include fraud and money laundering.

So, Matt, how does it feel to be hit with a giant dose of karma right as your former wingman is cooperating with the feds and spilling his guts about your dirty secrets?


Social Media WTF?!

Eric Trump Thought He’d Attack Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff – BIG Mistake

In a desperate attempt to pretend he’s still relevant, Eric Trump sent out a tweet that raised questions about his mental stability and left most people scratching their heads.

HuffPost notes that Eric wanted to announce that he’d just unsubscribed from the email list of Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff, the husband of Vice President Kamala Harris:

“Ex-President Donald Trump’s son shared what appeared to be a screenshot showing a successful unsubscribe. Checked was a box explaining it was because ‘the emails are inappropriate.’

“’Second Gentleman’ — the formal moniker for Emhoff — was underlined.

“Trump captioned his post with the #unsubscribe hashtag.”

How pathetic was the tweet? So much so that Eric later deleted it, but not before everyone had seen it. That set off a wave of mockery aimed in Eric’s direction:

There’s an old saying that certainly applies to every member of the Trump family: Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

Social Media U.S. Senate

Ted Cruz Picked A Twitter Fight With Trevor Noah – That Was A Big Mistake

There are few people in this country who are as widely disliked as Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who has also been called the most hated man in the U.S. Senate.

Despite this knowledge, Cruz seems determined to pick fights with those who can easily make him look like the moronic troglodyte that he is and reinforce his own pathetic ineptitude when it comes to debating.

For example, Ted ran across a clip of “The Daily Show” and saw host Trevor Noah commenting on some of the results from the 2020 Census. Noah zinged Cruz with this line:

“Aside from New York getting screwed, the big news out of the census is that America’s population grew at the slowest rate since the 1930s. Basically, immigration is down and the birth rate is falling, primarily due to this photo.”

Cue a photo of Ted Cruz.

Clearly, Noah is making a joke. That’s kind of his job. But Cruz got his feelings hurt and tweeted a response that came across as pure asshole:

As you’d expect, Noah was equal to the challenge, and he fired off this retort:

Cruz should have left well enough alone. But he just couldn’t:

That’s when former host Jon Stewart joined the fray:

Noah then finished off the Texas Republican:

Game, set, and match, Trevor Noah, with an assist by Jon Stewart.

At last report, Ted Cruz was seen slithering out of his Senate office and heading to the nearest international airport. He was said to be carrying a box of tissues.


Congress GOP Whining Racism

GOP Congressman Gets His A*s Handed To Him When He Picks A Fight With Cardi B

Even though Republicans repeatedly insist they aren’t racist and believe in equality for all Americans, they seem to have a penchant for saying that doing things that suggest otherwise and make it clear that their lip service is nothing but hot air, a screen they use to try and hide their real feelings and intentions.

Today’s example of a blatantly racist Republican comes to us in the person of Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-WI), who proved that not only is he badly behind the times when it comes to current events, but also that he’s bigoted to the very core of his tiny, shriveled heart.

As Crooks and Liars reports, Grothman got wind of the fact that at the Grammy Awards (which took place over a month ago, on March 14), Cardi B performed the song “WAP,” which the congressman deemed “inconsistent with basic decency”:

“Grothman has a long history of blaming everything on Black people, especially Black women. In the past he’s attacked Kwanzaa, said that Black women would rather have children out of wedlock because they wanted that sweet, sweet welfare check for a couple hundred bucks per month, and justified voting for some of the most oppressive voter suppression laws in the country because when people vote illegally, they usually vote for Democrats.

“This time, it really turns out that Grothman put his foot in his mouth after stepping in a pile of dog crap. He confessed that he hadn’t even watched the performance by Cardi B until after his one minute tirade about how improper it was.”

Things quickly got much worse for Congressman Grothman when Cardi B joined the debate and verbally emasculated Rep. Doofus on Twitter, carving him up like you’d slice a roast beef before you sit down to dinner:

Oh, in case you’re wondering, Rep. Grothman is indeed a loyal lapdog for failed, one-term former President Donald Trump, who also has a problem with strong black women daring to express their opinions or even sing a song.

Fortunately, Glenn Grothman did accomplish something with his whining: He allowed us to see him get his ass handed to him by a woman with more talent and bravery in her little finger than he’ll ever have in his bloated body.

Thank you, Cardi B. You’re a great American and we love you.

Civil Rights Donald Trump Jr. GOP Whining Social Media

Don Jr. And Lauren Boebert Own Themselves By Spreading BS About Meat Rationing By Joe Biden

There’s an old saying attributed to Benjamin Franklin that goes, “Believe none of what you hear and believe half of what you see.”

Sadly, however, not everyone practices that helpful axiom, especially those who are intent on repeating lies and conspiracy theories such as the majority of right-wing political figures in the United States these days.

If you need proof that some people are too damn lazy to even do a simple Google search before they post something on social media, consider the case of Donald Trump Jr. (aka Traitor Tot) and Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), who is in the running with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

Junior and Ms. Boebert ran across a report from Fox News that claimed President Joe Biden’s plan to combat climate change would include encouraging Americans to reduce their meat consumption by 90% within the next 10 years.

Problem is, as fact-check websites pointed out, that’s simply not true:

“At no point in this speech did Biden announce any initiative to impose a limit on red meat consumption. At no point in his presidency has Biden suggested policies aimed at limiting red meat consumption.”

Yet despite that, Boebert and Don Jr. started tweeting and getting others to retweet the lie:

Lies. All of it. No one is cutting anything. As many people pointed out, stupidity is a terrible thing:

The next time you think you’ve encountered the dumbest person on the face of the planet, remember that Junior and Klanny Oakley are too stupid and lazy to spend 10 seconds doing some research on the internet.
