Like 99% of America, I had much better things to do than pay any attention to the White House Correspondents Dinner. PDT also did, holding a rally in Michigan with the common folk rather than go to an event where a bunch of snotty elitist media operatives who hate him (and the people at his rally in Michigan) stand in a circle and tell each other how wonderful and important they are.
And spew hate they did. The leftist media operatives invited a feminist comedian (a term whose value as an oxymoron is exceeded only by “Jumbo Shrimp,” “Deafening Silence,” and “Dodge Ram”) to engage in what the Democrat Left considers comedy: Having their own opinions echoed back at them in a snarky way that reaffirms their social superiority while they respond with forced laughter. Here are some examples of the comedic stylings of the feminist comedian Michelle Wolf:
“Every time Sarah steps up to the podium, I get excited. I’m not really sure what we’re going to get, you know? A press briefing, a bunch of lies or divided into softball teams. ‘It’s shirts and skins, and this time don’t be such a little bitch, Jim Acosta,” Wolf joked. “I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s very resourceful. But she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye. Like maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies. It’s probably lies.”
“I’m never really sure what to call Sarah Huckabee Sanders,” Wolf continued. “Is it Sarah Sanders, is it Sarah Huckabee Sanders, is it Cousin Huckabee, is it Aunt Huckabee Sanders? What’s Uncle Tom but for white women who disappoint other white women? Ah I Know, Aunt Coulter.”
“[Vice-president Mike Pence] thinks abortion is murder. Which first of all don’t knock it till you try it. And when you do try it, really knock it, you gotta get that baby out of there. And yeah, sure, you can groan all you want, I know a lot of you are very anti-abortion, you know, unless it’s the one you got for your secret mistress.”
If this is comedy, where is the part where I am supposed to, you know, laugh?
You know she didn’t come up with this in a vacuum. All of this was work-shopped with people who assured it was falldown hilarious. Kathy Griffin thought it was funny.
Some media operatives were a little displeased with her monologue. Not because it wasn’t funny. Not because it was just mean. Not because it was vulgar. But because it validated what Trump and Conservatives have been saying about the Democrat Left being mean, vulgar, and unfunny. You’re only supposed to say those nasty things in private when surrounded by fellow leftists, dear.
But at the end of the day, who cares? This whole kerfuffle will be forgotten by lunchtime today. And the only people who even sort of care are a tiny bubble of politicians and media operatives. None of them will change at all, despite their feigned indignation.
“We have a secretary of state, as was mentioned, that believes that gay people are sinners based on who they are. If Mike Pence, God bless him, ended up in the White House, sitting behind that desk in the Oval Office, he would have us all in concentration camps hoping to pray away the gay.”
Only very stupid people believe this. I’m not sure this activist is necessarily one of them. But he knows that he needs very stupid people to believe it protect his phoney baloney activist job.
I still think KW is an ass, but I enjoy watching the meltdown.
I’m a lesbian. My fiancee is a trans woman. Were trying to have a baby the old-fashioned way. Its complicated
Over the last several months, I’ve spent evenings watching my fiancée, Lara, inject herself with smaller and smaller doses of estrogen. I’ve watched her stand in front of a mirror, singeing each hair out of her face with a secondhand electrolysis machine.
The return of her testosterone hasn’t resulted in just the resurgence of facial hair; her pants now fit differently, too. My own skin has been plagued by acne since I got off the pill six months ago, and my default states are angry, hungry or sleeping. Such are the perils of trying to have a child the way Lara and I are trying, without in vitro fertilization, or cryogenically frozen sperm. The way fertile cisgender people do: They simply couple up, and boom — a child is born.
James Comey plugging his book on the hour-long infomercial CNN gave him: “Hillary Clinton is more meshed in, trained in, respectful of the norms and traditions that I’m so worried about being eroded today.”
Yeah, the guy who used to run the FBI said that about a woman who trashed evidence, obstructed justice, mishandled classified documents, and consorted with a guy who sent dick-pics to underage girls.
The “norms and traditions” he speaks of must be those of powerful politicians covering up for each other.
Our kids may rank dead last in math and science, but by golly, they know their genderqueering. (Hat Tip: AOSHQ)
