This is the left: Abortion joke at White House Correspondents’ dinner! Funny stuff, y’all!

The host of Saturday’s “Nerd Prom” was Michelle Wolf, some “comedian” best known as a writer for Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

Michelle had some fine jokes at the event, many of which centered on Sarah Huckabee Sanders (who was in attendance). People were not pleased with those jokes, unless you are a progressive who enjoys making fun of conservative women.

The one joke many (including the left-leaning press) aren’t talking about: The one about Mike Pence and abortion, because, we all know how devastatingly funny abortion can be.

If you can’t stand to stomach the video and her voice, here’s the text of the joke (in reference to VP Pence’s pro-life stance):

He thinks abortion is murder, which, first of all, don’t knock it ‘til you try it — and when you do try it, really knock it. You know, you’ve got to 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.

Hey Michelle, there’s a reason why Vice President Pence might consider abortion “murder.” Maybe you should do some research into the biology of fetal development.

Here’s some research for you: About a baby’s development at 15 weeks, from InfoBaby:

“This stage is very special, because many important organs of the fetal starts to develop. Central nervous system is developing, in the future it will have to control the whole body. The process of the development of the cerebral cortex and the division of nerve cells lasts one month. Therefore, you have to treat yourself very gently and carefully during the pregnancy.

The taste buds are already formed; the fetus now can clearly distinguish the taste of the mother’s food. If the fetus is male, at this term he starts to produce testosterone (male hormone).

At fifteen weeks the baby’s cardio-vascular system is developing rapidly, you can even see the vessels. The transparent skin of the fetus acquires reddish or pinkish color. The pigment of the hair color starts to appear. The heart is able to pump 20 liters of blood per day.

The intestines start to function well receiving the bile secreted by the liver, then feces are produced. The kidneys function well, and the fetus often exerts the urine in the amniotic fluids.

At the fifteenth week, lungs are developing through swallowing and spitting water. All the muscles of the baby are also developing actively. The glottis is now open as the voice cords are already formed.

The baby’s bones are growing and starting to get harder. The baby begins to move, turns and bump, opens and closes her fists, which contributes to the active development of joints and muscles. The hair begins to grow and thicken, the eye brows and eye lashes are forming and become visible.”

You “journalists” must be so proud of yourselves!

Rising-star Democrat senator Kamala Harris ‘jokes’ about killing President Trump

Kamala Harris, 53, is a first-term Senator from California.

She is a Democrat and a rising star. She is also black and her name is already among those floated as a candidate for the 2020 presidential election.

Ryan Foley reports for Newsbusters (via LifeNews) that during an appearance on the daytime talk show Ellen, aired last Thursday, April 5, 2018, Host Ellen DeGeneres gave Harris a lavish introduction, calling her “California’s first African-American senator” and “the first Indian-American to ever be elected to the Senate”, adding “there are many who would like to see her become the first female President of the United States.”

Responding to DeGeneres’ question, “If you had to be stuck in an elevator with either President Trump, Mike Pence, or Jeff Sessions, who would it be?,” Harris implied that she wants President Trump (and VP Pence and Attorney General Sessions) dead. Kamala Harris said:

“Does one of us have to come out alive?”

At that, Harris, DeGeneres and the audience laughed and clapped because, you know, wishing a duly-elected, sitting President of the United States dead is just so very funny.

As the segment drew to a close, DeGeneres once again referred to Harris “as possibly your next President of the United States!” as the audience of women cheered enthusiastically.

Ba-a-a!

#WaronWomen: Jimmy Kimmel mocks Melania Trump’s accent

Jimmy Kimmel invites women to feel his crotch

Remember, this comes from “America’s conscience.”

From Fox News: Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel didn’t hold back the jabs at first lady Melania Trump on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Monday night while mocking the 140th annual White House Easter Egg Roll, which she hosted earlier that day.

“I want to really thank the first lady, Melania, who has really done an incredible job,” President Trump announced from the balcony of the White House to kick off the event. “She worked so hard on this event, so I want to thank you.”

With a big grin, Kimmel told his fans, “Not a chance she did one thing to help set that up. There’s no — she didn’t dye eggs, she didn’t fill baskets. The only thing she’s been working on is an escape tunnel.”

The audience applauded, as Kimmel pointed to a “surprise visitor” who was photoshopped into the background of the Trumps as they greeted a large crowd at the White House: Stormy Daniels.

“You know, it was supposed to be pouring, the weather. It was supposed to be very rainy and nasty and cold and windy,” Trump told a crowd of about 30,000 people in attendance.

“And Stormy, too, you know,” Kimmel added.

Kimmel then directed the audience’s attention to a clip of Melania reading the children’s book, “YOU!,” by Sandra Magsamen. After playing about 10 seconds of footage, Kimmel chuckled and mocked the first lady’s accent, repeating the last words she read.

“This and that,” said Kimmel, as he impersonated Mrs. Trump.

He then turned to his sidekick on the show, “Guillermo, you know what this means? You could be first lady of the United States.”

But Kimmel’s bit didn’t end there. The comedian, once again, pointed to a television screen and featured Melania finishing the book.

“That’s the end,” Melania said as she closed the book. The audience roared with laughter as Kimmel added, “…of the world.”

He continued, “Hey, I love that Vice President Pence just released the children’s book about a bunny. Did they read that to the kids? Nope, they went with ‘dis and dat’ instead.”

While some applauded the Kimmel’s nearly three-minute monologue, others critcized the comedian’s joke, calling it “offensive.”

“I love your show and I love it when you take on Trump. But mocking Melania for her accent was a rare mis-step. Doesn’t she speak several languages? (And isn’t that a good thing in a First Lady?)” one fan asked Kimmel on Twitter Thursday.

“Classy. Making fun of the First Lady,” another wrote, along with a face palm emoji.

“If this was some random foreigner, you people would NEVER make fun of their accent and risk offending them. What a bunch of [hypocrites] you are. You should be ashamed that you’re allowed on television,” a Twitter user added.

Kimmel posted the video on his Twitter account Tuesday morning, with the caption: “No one celebrates #Easter quite like the Trumps…”

But that wasn’t the only joke aimed at the Trump administration during Kimmel’s show on Monday. He also trolled Trump’s counselor Kellyanne Conway, who he dubbed the “#1 White House leaker,” and conducted a “Make America Grate Again Spelling Bee,” asking three young students to come on stage and spell words incorrectly.

VP Pence’s CO neighbors welcome him with “Make America Gay Again” banner

make america gay again

I’m sure the neighbors consider themselves quite clever, even if they aren’t very original.

From Denver Post: For Vice President Mike Pence, the message was unmistakable and the banner that carried it unmissable. “Make America Gay Again,” the rainbow banner reads.

Neighbors of the home near Aspen where Pence and his wife, Karen, are staying posted the message Wednesday or Thursday on a stone pillar that sits at the end of driveways to both homes, Pitkin County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Buglione said Friday.

The residents of the home did not answer the door or respond to a note left Friday asking for comment about the banner. The Pence family, who arrived Tuesday, is expected to leave Aspen on Monday and head back to the Eagle County Airport.

Pence, a former member of Congress and governor of Indiana, has described himself as a “Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order.”

Roger Stone says cabinet members are plotting to remove Trump with 25th Amendment

Even before Donald Trump was inaugurated President, tongues began wagging on how to remove him from office.

There are two Constitutional ways to remove a sitting U.S. president:

(1) Impeachment: What is required is a majority vote in the U.S. Senate to impeach, and a 2/3 Senate majority to convict, which Democrats don’t presently have. That is why they pin their hopes on winning back the Senate, if not also the House, in next year’s mid-term elections.

(2) Via the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: Section 4 of the 25th Amendment states:

“Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.”

Democrats first tried the Congressional route of removing President Trump via the 25th Amendment.

On April 6, 2017, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) introduced HR 1987: Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity Act, the objective of which is to form a special commission in the House which will be charged with activating Section 4 of the 25th Amendment against President Trump.

See “Democrat bill in Congress, HR 1987, to remove President Trump for ‘mental incompetence’

Since Republicans have a solid majority in the House of Representatives, it comes as no surprise that Raskin failed to get the House bill passed. Even Democrats did not vote for it.

That leaves the other method of deploying the 25th Amendment — a written declaration by the Vice President and “a majority” of the Cabinet (“principal officers of the executive department”) that President Trump is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, at which point, Vice President Mike Pence “shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.”

Roger Stone, 65, is a GOP political consultant and lobbyist, as well as President Trump’s adviser during last year’s presidential campaign. Stone left the campaign on August 8, 2015 amid controversy, with Stone claiming he quit and Trump claiming that Stone was fired. Despite this, Stone continues to support Trump.

Andrew Blake reports for The Washington Times, Dec. 26, 2017, that during a recent interview on C-SPAN, Stone said he had heard that some members of President Trump’s administration considered whether they can invoke the 25th Amendment to take him out of office.

Associated Press reporter Tom LoBianco asked Stone for evidence:

“Do you have any evidence that anyone is actively plotting or attempting or laying the groundwork right now inside the Cabinet — inside the administration — to make that removal?”

Stone refused to disclose specifics but he insisted his claim wasn’t baseless. He said:

I have sources, and I work my sources, and yes, I believe there are some who have had this discussion. This is both outside the Cabinet and in. I think it’s the fallback plan for the establishment. That’s why I’m trying to sound the clarion call. Like you, Tom, I cannot reveal those sources, and I’m not prepared to do so, but this is not a conspiracy theory.”

Joshua Caplan of Gateway Pundit points out that Stone is not the only major political or media figure to say there is a plot to remove Trump from the White House.

Former UN Ambassador John Bolton believes Trump faces a coup threat from special counsel Robert Mueller. Bolton recently said we are witnessing the first coup d’état in US history:

“They are the ones who are illegitimate… The Wall Street Journal says this is the first coup d’état in American History. It’s a mini coup d’état but it goes right along with the idea that they should have won the election. And one recalls the famous scene in the debate where during the debates where, I believe it was Chris Wallace, who asked both candidates if you lose will you accept the result….”

TDS: White guys create “I am so Sick of White Guys” coloring book because of Trump and white privilege

white guys coloring book

But they aren’t sick of capitalism! Here’s a description of the coloring book from Amazon:

“I am So Sick of White Guys: The Coloring Books Experience combines the long and revered American tradition of political satire with the latest popular craze, ‘adult coloring books.’

If you are sick of news reports of yet another white guy abusing his power and taking advantage of your government, your financial system, your society and your culture, to pad his own wallet, then I am So Sick of White Guys may provide an amusing outlet for your frustrations. (Time to break out your crayon – you’ll only need one color!)

Jim Corbett and Tim Jones collaborated with caricature artist, Steve Hartley to create a collection of beautifully crafted images that skewer some sacred cows (and a fair number of pigs as well) that have grabbed more than their fair share of the pie over the years while convincing the world that the only opinion that really matters is the opinion of a white guy with money or power. Each image is accompanied by witty, sarcastic and sometimes even snarky comments that just might be the elixir you need to help you cope with what is happening to the greatest democracy the world has ever known. (Remember when our elections were decided by an insane thing called the ‘Electoral College,’ instead of an even more insane thing called Russia?)

From Everett Herald: The joke is on these two white guys. They came up with a book with a catchy title that might sound like they’re lambasting themselves. It’s called “I am So Sick of White Guys” — and it’s written by white guys Jim Corbett and Tim Jones.

What’s up with that? It’s their take on the white White House. “It has gotten to the point where even white guys are sick of white guys now,” said Corbett, 66. “We’re talking about men in power and positions who are taking advantage of their status,” added Jones, 62.

The glossy book cover has a cartoon that includes Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Paul Ryan, Steve Bannon, Mitch McConnell, Jeff Sessions and Jared Kushner, all under the puppet strings of Vladimir Putin. Well, you get the picture, and you can color it. The subhead is: “The Coloring Book Experience.”

The new book, sold on Amazon for $10, is sure to amuse some people and most certainly anger others. “For every person who might love this book there is someone else out there who would hate this book,” Jones said. “Trump supporters would find nothing funny about this book at all.”

Chances are the Make America Great Again crowd won’t chortle at the centerfold of a naked Trump on a bear rug holding a hand mirror with a long tie covering his groin.

Corbett got the idea for the book about six months ago. “I was shouting at my TV one day,” he recalled. “I said, ‘I am so sick of these white guys, people like Sessions and Trump.’ I called Tim up and said, ‘I want to write a book with you called ‘I am So Sick of White Guys.’ He jumped right in.”

It evolved from there. “Instead of doing the book as written text, we decided it would be more fun to do it as an adult coloring book,” Corbett said.

In their search for an artist, they found and liked the art done by Hartley, who is black. “We weren’t sure how receptive he would be,” Jones said.

Hartley said he has “dabbled in a little bit of everything” in his 36 years as an illustrator. “It was a strange proposal to begin with, but I felt challenged by it,” said Hartley, 55, of Lake Stevens. “I don’t agree with everything in the book. The climate is so volatile right now. I’m sick of wimpy Dems and I’m tired of angry Republicans. I think both sides are pretty crummy a lot of times. I don’t give either side the win. I’m just a guy who draws stuff.”

Corbett and Jones did the captions and admittedly snarky comments that accompany each image. “This is political satire,” Corbett said. “Where we are coming from is humor.”

They stress it is not to promote intolerance. “There is such an epidemic of white male privilege that even white males have said, ‘Enough is enough,’” Jones said.

Wait, haven’t these two guys benefited from being white guys? Both agree they have.

Corbett lives in Edmonds and is an executive for an online legal research company. Jones writes a humor blog called The View From the Bleachers from his Camano Island home. “I live in Camano Island, one of the whitest islands in the Pacific Northwest,” Jones said. “There are a lot of white guys like me, everywhere I look.”

The authors are donating 10 percent of the profits to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which devotes its efforts to opposing hate groups.

The book has 27 images, including cartoons of Rush Limbaugh and Roy Moore, many of them political cartoons against racism, sexism and religious bias. “It makes a point that there is a lot of inequality between whites and blacks, men and women, people in power and people out of power,” Corbett said.

The book ends with Trump and Kim Jong Un strapped to a missile aimed at outer space. The white guys aren’t done.“We already have ideas for a Volume 2,” Corbett said.

Hanoi Jane praises Colin Kaepernick: “Keep kneeling until you can’t stand up!”

hanoi jane

One would expect this praise from the anti-American womyn.

From Hollywood Reporter: The ACLU of Southern California’s annual Bill of Rights awards gala Sunday evening was a star-studded affair with honorees such as Viola Davis, Gina Rodriguez, Jane Fonda and Judd Apatow, but it was Colin Kaepernick who received the loudest applause.

The NFL star took home the Eason Monroe Courageous Courage Award.

“He’s been viciously and unfairly criticized,” said ACLU Southern California’s executive director Hector Villagra. “He’s been called a traitor because too many people in this country confuse dissent for disloyalty. He took a stand knowing some would threaten him and he has had his life threatened which is why that we are profoundly honored to have him here [and] we didn’t publicize his presence tonight.”

When Kaepernick hit the stage, the audience jumped to its feet. “We must confront systematic oppression as a doctor would a disease. You identify it, you call it out, you treat and you defeat it. We all have an obligation no matter the risk and regardless of reward to stand up for fell men and women who are being oppressed with the understanding that human rights cannot be compromised. In the words of Frederick Douglas, ‘If there is a no struggle, there is no progress.'”

Kaepernick received a second standing ovation before Billy Eichner came on stage to present a Bill of Rights Award to Judd Apatow. “I have to follow Colin Kaerpernick?!” Eichner joked. “I didn’t even wear the ACLU ribbon at the Emmys because it didn’t match my tuxedo, which I feel terrible about now, by the way.”

Judd delivered more of a politically charged standup act than an acceptance speech, which included his hope that the alleged “pee tape” of President Donald Trump would be released.

“But if there is a pee tape then who becomes president? Mike Pence,” Apatow said. “Then we need another pee tape, maybe of Trump sitting next to Mike Pence. So, we need another pee tape because then who becomes the president? Paul Ryan… We basically need a tape of a Russian hooker urinating like a firehose on like 40 Republicans until we finally get Bernie Sanders.
