Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Someone needs to tell her the definition of the word “punish”. – Emily Ratajkowski, who is I guess a model, posted nude photos of herself on social media yesterday. Which apparently is not an uncommon thing for this particular individual. But this time, she says she has a reason. That reason is…wait for it…oh, you gotta wait for this one…TO PUNISH OLD WHITE MEN in Alabama who passed the anti-abortion bill that was signed into law this week. I swear I do not make this stuff up.
What is it about being a radical leftist celebrity that makes a person hopelessly stupid? Or does the stupid come first? It’s one of life’s eternal mysteries.
In other stupid leftist celebrity news… – Actor Jason Bateman swore on Thursday that he would never work in Georgia again if the so-called “Heartbeat Bill” now being considered in the legislature there becomes law. No Jason Bateman? No Alyssa Milano? No Chelsea Handler? NO CHER???? Hey, these Georgians have figured out the secret to happiness.
True, whether you agree with the policy or not. – Alabama just became a sanctuary state for babies.
Don’t expect the Supreme Court to weigh in. – Alabama Republicans are hoping this law will make its way to the U.S. Supreme Court to become the vehicle that leads to the reversal of the Roe v. Wade decision. Don’t expect that to happen.
The most likely scenario is that this law will be ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge, that decision will be upheld by a court of appeals, and the John Roberts Court will refuse to hear the case.Even if the Supreme Court were to hear the case, you should expect John Roberts to do what he did with Obamacare, which is to twist himself into a tight little pretzel of illogic to side with the court’s four leftist judges.
John Roberts is not who everyone thought he was when he was nominated by President George W. Bush.
President Trump just tweeted this while I was typing this piece up this morning.:
My Campaign for President was conclusively spied on. Nothing like this has ever happened in American Politics. A really bad situation. TREASON means long jail sentences, and this was TREASON!

Perhaps he had just seen Attorney General William Barr’s interview with Fox News’s Bill Hemmer, which airs this morning at 9:00 ET. Here is a passage from that interview released by Fox last night [emphasis added]:
“I’ve been trying to get answers to the questions, and I’ve found that a lot of the answers have been inadequate and some of the explanations I’ve gotten don’t hang together,” Barr told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer in an interview set to air Friday on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.” “In a sense, I have more questions today than when I first started.”
When asked by Hemmer what does not hang together, Barr responded: “Some of the explanations of what occurred.”
“Why does that matter?” Hemmer asked.
“People have to find out what the government was doing during that period,” Barr responded. “If we’re worried about foreign influence, for the very same reason we should be worried about whether government officials abuse their power and put their thumb on the scale. . . . I’m not saying that happened, but it’s something we have to look at.”
Expect emergency narrative-setting sessions with John Brennan on MSNBC and James Clapper on CNN later today. Also expect America’s National Teenage Drama Queen James Comey to post something odd on Twitter.
We should probably also expect the New York Times to reach into its bag of negative stuff about President Trump and belch it out this evening. It’s panic time.
High-powered defense lawyers in Washington, DC will be doing a land office business today.
RIP, Grumpy Cat.
That is all.
