The elites hate average Americans

with 37 comments

From a NY Times Magazine article:

[Donald Trump] is a proudly crass American who vacations at his own country clubs, dines on fast food and watches a lot of TV.

This demonstrates the disdain that the elites have for the average American. The average American eats fast food and watches TV. And then the elites don’t understand why those average Americans voted for Trump, a man who behaves like an average American, over Hillary Clinton who looks down on them with disdain and thinks of them as “deplorables.”

* * *

Bill Clinton, back in the day, ate a lot of fast food, but no one ever looked down on him as being disgusting because of that. He had Democratic privilege. Republicans are hated for things that Democrats can get away with.

Look who’s been arrested

with 28 comments

Mr. Avenatti said he would refrain from publicizing his evidence if Nike paid $1.5 million to his client, who is not named, the court documents said. He also demanded that Nike hire him and another lawyer to conduct an internal investigation, for billings worth between $15 million and $25 million, court documents said.

So it’s not just about the $1.5 million for his client (which is borderline), but the $15 million to $25 million of bogus legal fees he demanded for himself.

And it gets even better. This guy recently joined Smollett’s legal team:

World’s whitest-looking black woman may or may not have tried to commit suicide

Tuesday news update

1. TMZ reports that “Empire” is going to “slash” Jussie Smollett’s screen-time.

Production sources tell TMZ … Jussie was supposed to have 9 scenes and a big musical number in the second to the last episode — which is being shot now — but, 5 of his scenes have been cut, and his musical number has been 86’d.

But he has not been immediately fired and the show canceled, like happened with Roseanne Barr because of a single free-speech Tweet. The lesson is that a white person tweeting something stupid and then deleting it and apologizing is a much worse offense than a black person committing a felony hate-crime hoax.

TMZ also report that their law enforcement sources say that prosecutors intend to seek a felony indictment from a grand jury for filing a false police report. But that has yet to be confirmed by other news media.

2. Bernie is officially running for president! No one seems to care that, if elected, he will become an octogenarian during his first term in office.

I say that if Joe Biden decides to sit out, then Bernie becomes the frontrunner and he will be hard to beat. He has name recognition, plus he’s less scary to white voters than an angry non-white like Kamala Harris. (Obama’s secret to success was that he wasn’t angry.)

RBG, I told you so, again

Copying and pasting what I wrote before:

1. You have to truly be a moron to think that the MSM could cover up the fact that RBG is dead until a Democratic President is sworn in in January 2021. And in fact, it’s in the interest of the MSM for RBG be dead because they’d get a massive amount of readership and viewership as a new Supreme Court nomination goes through the process. So MSM silence definitely means that there’s nothing wrong with her; at least nothing that would cause her imminent death (it has been previously reported that she would be at home for a few weeks recovering from her last hospitalization). I have no doubt that she will never voluntarily retire so long as Trump is President, no matter how poor her health.

2. After moron right-wingers convinced themselves that Hillary Clinton was going to die any moment from some mysterious disease, and that turned out to be false, I recalled an episode of Star Trek. Scotty is left in charge of the Enterprise while Kirk and Spock are down on the planet, and the Klingons lure him away with a fake distress call. And then, just as Scotty is about to return to the planet, they receive yet another distress call. And that’s when Scotty says, “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me!” So the lesson to learn is to totally ignore any unverifiable reports on right-wing message boards about a liberal Democrat’s health.

These morons on the right are as bad as the morons on the left, and it’s almost enough to make me give up on politics blogging.

The Washington Post reports that RBG attended a musical production last night.

I told you so.

Sandwichgate

We don’t know that he didn’t drop the sandwich and pick it up later. They come with a wrapper. Why leave it on the ground?

RBG

I saw the following comment elsewhere on the web:

These rumors are easy enough to refute if they are false. Just have her make an appearance. Instead, the MSM sits around complaining that there are people who don’t believe she is alive or able to serve. Maybe such people are not buying your lines because you, the MSM, have been caught in misreporting before, and it is well known that the MSM/Leftists are panicking because the court oligarchy that THEY created is now being taken over by Conservatives/Constitutionalists. You cannot blame them for believing that the MSM/Left/Deep State would do anything to prevent Trump from having another Supreme Court pick.

The MSM is trolling right-wingers. Let the stupidest of the bunch get themselves worked up like this guy, and then when RBG finally appears they can point out how right-wingers are (1) incredibly stupid (2) conspiracy-mongers and (3) evil and unchristian in hoping that a nice old woman is dead.

You have to truly be a moron to think that the MSM could cover up the fact that RBG is dead until a Democratic President is sworn in in January 2021. And in fact, it’s in the interest of the MSM for RBG be dead because they’d get a massive amount of readership and viewership as a new Supreme Court nomination goes through the process. So MSM silence definitely means that there’s nothing wrong with her; at least nothing that would cause her imminent death (it has been previously reported that she would be at home for a few weeks recovering from her last hospitalization).

Phonegate

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/chicago-police-say-empire-actor-jussie-smollett-refuses-hand-over-n965371

“Empire” actor Jussie Smollett has refused to turn over his cellphone to detectives, who are investigating the alleged attack that sent him to the hospital earlier this week, Chicago police said Thursday.

The actor declined to share telephone records that could show he was speaking with his manager just as the alleged assault happened early Tuesday morning in Chicago, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told NBC News.

* * *

To be fair to Smollett, I wouldn’t give my phone to police either. The police can verify the time of the call from the carrier records, if Smollett provides that.
