Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Trump, as only he can do it, got onto his Twitter account Tuesday evening and trolled the fake journalists at CNN and MSNBC who helped promote one of the fake Russian-staged anti-Trump rallies on November 12, 2016: “Bad ratings @CNN & @MSNBC got scammed when they covered the anti-Trump Russia rally wall-to-wall. They probably knew it was Fake News but, because it was a rally against me, they pushed it hard anyway. Two really dishonest newscasters, but the public is wise!” Never. Stop. Tweeting. Please.
Um, how come they haven’t already been fired? – The Daily Beast has a report this morning that reads as follows: “Several Newsweek staffers threatened to resign earlier this week, accusing the company of attempting to muzzle the publishing of a story further detailing internal turmoil at the magazine and ties to a controversial Christian college.” Note to Newsweek management: There is a really, really simple business solution to this problem.
All you really need to know about this gal is that she’s a Democrat in California. Then it all makes perfect sense. – California State Assemblywoman (or is it “Assemblywymyn?” I have a hard time keeping these things straight, and I do strive here at the Campaign Update to be as politically correct as possible.) Christina Garcia, who has spent the last 6 months demanding that any member of the male species accused of any sort of sexual wrongdoing resign immediately without defending himself in any way, shape or form, is very predictably refusing to resign her own seat in the face of multiple accusations that she her own self happens to be a sexual predator. Go figure. Who could have ever seen this one coming?
Hey, y’all, the Democrats have new polling data on the Trump Tax Cuts, and it turns out calling $1,000 bonuses “crumbs” hasn’t worked out so well. Who could have guessed that? It seemed like such a great strategy. Apparently, though, the Dems done some focus groups – probably among people in San Francisco who can now legally poop on the streets because they’re the Democrats’ idea of “middle America” – who are telling them that hey, call the tax bill “unpatriotic” because healthcare or something, and it will all be better. So San Fran Nan was out in Arizona calling the tax bill “unpatriotic” on Tuesday because all those street poopers told her that was the smart thing to say. I swear, that’s how the Democrats do this stuff.
Proving once again that it is simply not possible to ever be politically correct enough to satisfy all the social justice warriors in America, the blockbuster film “Black Panther”, which features a mostly-black cast and a black superhero from Marvel Comics and has broken all manner of box office records, is now under fire because it doesn’t contain any gay characters. Had it contained gay characters, it would have come under fire for not including any Hispanic characters. Had it included gay and Hispanic characters, it would have come under fire for not including any Asian characters. Had it included gay, Hispanic and Asian characters, it would have come under fire because the cast was not 52 percent female, reflective of the overall make up of our society. Had it included gay, Hispanic, Asian characters in a 52 percent female cast, it would have come under fire for not including enough Canadians, because, well, Canada or something. And on and on and on it goes. I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
Speaking of social justice warriors, it turns out that a U.S. Olympics team filled with them isn’t maybe the best model for getting to peak performance in the actual Olympics events or in the TV ratings. NBC’s TV audience for these Olympics games, in fact, are headed to be the lowest ever recorded. As the games wind down to a blessed conclusion this week, the U.S. team itself has managed to win only 13 total medals, and will finish with its lowest medal count since 1998. Just a thought, but perhaps U.S. Olympics organizers in the future should ask their athletes to focus more of their energies on excelling in their chosen events and less on shooting their mouths off about political issues to any TV camera that happens to be in the vicinity. That worked for people like Carl Lewis and Nadia Comenici and Peggy Fleming and Simone Biles, and it might, just might have also worked for Lindsey Vonn.
Just another day in Social Justice Warriors kill everything they touch America.
