And speaking of assholes, President Trump’s little conniption of a press conference yesterday has stirred up the public’s passions all over again after we thought we might get a reprieve once the mid-term elections were over.
Alas, 85 year old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg took a tumble this morning and fractured 3 ribs in the process. Due to her advanced age, Ginsburg was hospitalized for observation and treatment. Democrats held their collective breath knowing that if another Supreme Court Justice goes down over the next two years, then another conservative Trump appointee will certainly take their place.
With the timing of the fall, we think Trump is working some serious voodoo over at the White House to get back at his opponents.
Twenty five years ago today on September 3rd, 1993, the movie “Kalifornia” starring Brad Pitt, Juliette Lewis and David Duchovny was released. The film was the story of a couple researching serial killings in America who coincidentally meet up with a serial killer and his young girlfriend on a dark country road trip. It was a metaphor for Americans need to be voyeurs to the nastiest, dirtiest, tabloid stories and the insatiable blood lust it riles up.
Some things never change. Let’s see how the public reacts to the Kavanaugh Supreme Court hearings this week.
Actress Alyssa Milano decided to dress up as a character from “The Handmaid’s Tale” to protest the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court judge. She was roundly mocked in an assortment of ways on social media for her cheesy protest.
Of course, we couldn’t resist participating:
Several reports indicate that President Donald Trump has narrowed his search for a new Supreme Court justice to three candidates and will likely announce his nomination on Monday, July 9th.
