GOP U.S. Senate Viral Video

WATCH: Leaked Video Shows Irate Josh Hawley Berating Reporter For Criticizing Elon Musk

Granted, we already knew that Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley was an insurrectionist (remember the raised fist to Jan. 6 protesters who stormed the Capitol?) and also a coward (Hawley running like a scalded rat as rioters breached the doors of the Capitol building), but it turns out that he’s also (surprise!) a douchey asshole who enjoys attacking anyone that disagrees with him.

The Riverfront Times obtained video of Hawley berating KSDK’s political editor, Mark Maxwell. What did Maxwell do that so enraged the senator? He dared to criticize Twitter CEO Elon Musk, as Sarah Fenske reported Monday.

The exchange apparently took place last week with KSDK’s political editor, Mark Maxwell. Earlier in the month, after Twitter suffered a meltdown, Maxwell had tweeted, “Does anyone still think Elon buying this site and firing all the experts was a good idea? It’s been awhile since I’ve seen any of his bootlickers brag on how efficient the site is now that Sir Galaxy Brain is in charge.”

That apparently offended Senator Snowflake’s delicate sensibilities.

“Why all the hate for people who like free speech on Twitter? What’s going on with that?” Hawley asked Maxwell during what would normally be pre-interview pleasantries, looking every inch the third grader grasping at seriousness while playing Principal For the Day.

At one point in the video, Hawley remarks:

“Referring to people you don’t like as bootlickers? You don’t do opinion journalism, do you?. When journalists, or so-called journalists refer to people they don’t like as bootlickers on a public platform, when they attack folks and then say they don’t necessarily do stuff sober, it does tend to get my attention.

“I mean, we give you a lot of access. I just want to make sure you’re actually sober and taking this seriously, good Lord in heaven.”

Hawley probably thinks this video makes him look tough to the MAGA crowd he desperately wants to be accepted by. But in reality it only makes him look like an effete pretender who gets off on trying to rattle someone for committing the sin of not being servile to him.

Or, as the title of Fenske’s article rightly notes, “Leaked footage catches Josh Hawley acting like a smug asshole.”

Nailed it.

WATCH: Right-Wing Commentator Fails Miserably When Asked To Define ‘Wokeness’

Right-wing pundit Bethany Mandel humiliated herself during an appearance on The Hill’s morning program “Rising” when she was asked to define a word she repeatedly used.

Mandel began by asserting that very few Americans identify as liberal “and probably fewer of them consider themselves to be woke.”

After Mandel used “woke” and “wokeness” a few more times, host Briahna Joy Gray inquired, “What does that mean to you? Would you mind defining woke? Because it’s come up a couple of times. I just want to make sure we’re on the same page.”


“So, I mean, woke is sort of the idea that… (10 second pause) This is going to be one of those moments that goes viral.”

Rather than move on, Mandel once again tried to provide a valid definition.

“I mean, woke is something that’s very hard to define. And we’ve spent an entire chapter defining it. It is sort of the understanding that we need to totally re-imagine and redo society in order to create hierarchies of oppression.”

Hierarchies of oppression? And what exactly does THAT mean?

If the idea of woke and wokeness is so damn hard to define, why do right-wingers insist on using it as a label for everything they disagree with? Why not just say they have a different opinion?

Here’s a cheat sheet for conservatives who need to do some homework regarding what it actually means to be “woke,” courtesy of Merriam-Webster:

“aware of and actively attentive to important societal facts and issues (especially issues of racial and social justice)”

How exactly is that a bad thing? Don’t ask a right-winger. They damn sure don’t know.

Video Of Trump Autographing A Little Girl’s Hand Goes Viral And Creeps Out The Internet 

It’s almost impossible to predict what will or won’t go viral on social media, and quite often what people think will be a big hit with the internet barely manages to garner 200 views.

So it comes as more than a bit surprising that a video clip of failed, disgraced, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump signing the hand of a young schoolgirl has now garnered over 334,000 views in just a couple of days.

Newsweek reports:

In the video, the former president can be seen wearing one of his MAGA hats with a black highlighter in hand while sitting at an outdoor table in his Mar-a-Lago, Florida residence.

While some viewed the scene as endearing, many on social media viewed the hand signing as “creepy,” referencing some of Trump’s prior remarks about women. The former president has in the past been accused of sexism over the views he has expressed about women.

After Trump signs the girl’s hand, her mother can be heard exclaiming, “You can never shower again.”

To that, the loser ex-president adds:

“You have no idea.”

Creepy? A little. Harmless? Probably, but then again keep in mind this is the same Donald Trump who admitted that he was sexually attracted to his daughter, Ivanka, when she was only 13.

“Jared Kushner, our Tom Hagen, who married Trump’s stunning daughter Ivanka — ‘Can I ask you something?’ Trump asked someone I know, about his then-13-year-old kid, ‘Is it wrong to be more sexually attracted to your own daughter than your wife? — has lately lost some of this Boy Scout aura. It turns out Kushner’s admission to Harvard was preceded by his father’s $2.5 million pledge.”

That’s creepy as hell, no matter what age Ivanka was at the time. But when you add in the fact that she was only 13, it becomes vomit inducing.

So it should come as no surprise that the internet reacted the way it did to the video of Trump signing the girl’s hand.

New Video Appears To Show The Rapid Physical Deterioration Of Donald Trump

While disgraced former president Donald Trump and his most ardent acolytes (including some who are members of Congress), love to say that President Joe Biden is in poor health, the evidence would seem to suggest that Trump is the one who needs a medical intervention.

There have also been hints that Trump’s health may indeed be failing, with the one-term ex-president noting in an off-handed comment that he might not run in 2024 due to health complications.

In a 2022 interview with The Washington Post, Trump remarked:

“You always have to talk about health. You look like you’re in good health, but tomorrow, you get a letter from a doctor saying come see me again. That’s not good when they use the word again.”

NBC News notes that the comment drew plenty of interest and raised all sorts of questions about a man who is known to hedge the truth when it comes to any information regarding himself.

This offhand comment — one that apparently came as something of an afterthought toward the end of the interview — sent shock waves through the political establishment, because it was the first time that Trump, who has been notoriously secretive about sharing his health records with the public, seemed to admit that health issues might influence his decision to run. He has often been deliberately misleading and even dishonest about his health, and for him to proactively bring it up as a potential reason not to run in 2024 is something of a watershed moment.

Add to that something said by Rev. Franklin Graham, who told Axios:

“I think for him, everything will depend on his health at that time. If he still has energy and strength like he does. I don’t.
“You know the guy does not eat well, you know, and it’s amazing the energy that he has.”

And now we have a new video of Trump at his Mar-a-Lago golf resort that was posted on Twitter Sunday by Ron Filipkowski.

In the video, Trump looks incredibly obese, red-faced, and is moving slowly. He also appears to be having trouble breathing and can barely speak to acknowledge the reception from those who are in the room with him.

Granted, Trump has looked like a beached whale for years now, but he looks even heavier in this latest video, and he almost seems to be in a daze as he walks though the frame and mumbles to the supporters.

The video set off plenty of chatter on social media.

Pete Buttigieg Has The Perfect Antidote To Trump’s Bullsh*t – And His Response Has Gone Viral

Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has gone viral with comments he made in response to criticism from failed former president Donald Trump, and he’s also drawing praise for perfectly countering the lies and bullshit the disgraced ex-president made during his visit to the Norfolk Southern train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio on Thursday.

The back and forth between Buttigieg and Trump began when the one-term, twice-impeached former president was asked about his administration “pulling back rail regulations” which may have contributed to the derailment.

As he often does, Trump insisted, “I had nothing to do with it.” But the facts suggest otherwise, as Newsweek reports:

Speaking to investigative news outlet The Lever, Steven Ditmeyer, a former top official at the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), said the “severity” of the accident was likely increased by the lack of Electronically Controlled Pneumatic (ECP) brakes.

A rule was passed under President Barack Obama that made it a requirement for trains carrying hazardous flammable materials to have ECP brakes, but this was rescinded in 2017 by the Trump administration.

That led a reporter to ask Buttigieg about what Trump said when the Transportation Secretary was in East Palestine:

“You mentioned the national political figures decided to get involved, it sounds like you’re talking about Trump. And then you said, ‘I need your help.’ How can he help?”

Buttigieg responded:

“Well, one thing he could do is express support for reversing the deregulation that happened on his watch. I heard him say he had ‘nothing to do with it,’ even though it was in his administration. So if he had nothing to do with it, and they did it in his administration against his will, maybe he could come out and say that, that he supports us moving in a different direction.”

The secretary continued:

“We’re not afraid to own our policies when it comes to raising the bar on regulation. And I’ve got to think that him indicating that this is something that everybody ,no matter how much you disagree on politics and presidential campaigns, can get behind – higher fines, tougher regulations on safety, Congress on tying our hands on breaking rules, all the other things that go with it that’d be a nice thing for him to do.”

In just 24 hours time, the video of Buttigieg’s remarks has been viewed nearly 2 million times, leading HuffPost White House correspondent S.V. Dáte to note:

“Never really understood why Republicans think picking fights with him is a good idea. He is hands down the Biden administration’s best communicator, he takes apart the criticism, turns them back on the critics, and does it all without sounding mad.”

Donald Trump fucked around and Pete Buttigieg helped him find out what a mistake that was.
