Quote:Last night on Fox News, it wasn’t only Jeanine Pirro blowing up at Mitt Romney. Jerry Falwell Jr. appeared with Jesse Watters and compared Romney to Scar from The Lion King.

Yes, really.

Watters brought on Falwell to react to Romney talking on the Senate floor about how his faith led him to reach his conclusion in voting to convict the president. “When you hear him use God in that way on an impeachment vote in the Senate, how does that square with you?” Watters asked.

Falwell said Romney should “keep his religion in his personal life, how he treats other people”:

“I said the other night on TV that the 1990s movie The Lion King, the animated version, that the Democrats were acting like hyenas in their impeachment. But also I think Mitt Romney fits in that movie a little bit because I don’t know if you remember the character Scar, the lion who pretended to be — well, he was a l… a LINO, I call it. But he was trying to take over, overthrow the king, and he worked with the hyenas to do so and I think that’s what we’re seeing.”

“Some people have always worn halos to hide their horns,” he added, while insisting he’s “not saying that about Romney.”

Why even bother with Fox News at this point. There is literally nothing they will say about Trump that will surprise me at this point while destroying anyone who opposes him. If someone posted a link that Sean Hannity called the for public executions ala' the French Revolution, I'd figure we all saw that coming,

In that interview, Kilmeade referred to Junior as "possibly the 46th president of the United States".

Gym Jordan gets another accuser:

Quote:[DiSabato] also said Jordan called him repeatedly in July 2018, after media outlets quoted his brother, Michael DiSabato, saying Strauss' abuse was common knowledge to those surrounding the wrestling program, including Jordan.

"Jim Jordan called me crying, groveling… begging me to go against my brother…That's the kind of cover-up that's going on there," he said.

I'm seriously considering Gilbert Gottfried from the same site for $150.

That dude has one of the unintentionally-porniest names we've seen in politics in quite some time now.

Quote:Limbaugh concluded his tirade by saying that some Democrats may “think that is the ticket” and that they need to get a “gay guy kissing his husband on stage” to “ram it down Trump’s throat.”

Methinks Rush might have some...closeted...issues.

...On the plus side, it looks like Judy Shelton (Mango's new Fed-board pick) might be in trouble:

If either Richard Shelby or Pat Toomey cast a single "no" vote during her confirmation, she's finished.

If you're wondering how we got to where we are from a political/governmental POV, you can pretty much blame Gingrich.

Cotton's still out there pushing conspiracy theories:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/gop-senator-k...00245.html

Quote:Sen. Tom Cotton is persistently resurfacing a debunked conspiracy theory which claims the deadly coronavirus sweeping the globe is the work of Chinese scientists at a secret Wuhan lab for biological warfare.

The Republican senator raised concerns about the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory while appearing on "Sunday Morning Futures" on Fox News.

"Now, we don't have evidence that this disease originated there, but because of China's duplicity and dishonesty from the beginning we need to at least ask the question," Cotton said of the lab.

"This virus did not originate in the Wuhan animal market," he said.

The National Biosafety Laboratory is part of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and is classed "Cellular Level Biosafety Level 4" — meaning it works on the most dangerous pathogens, like Ebola, according to the lab's website.

Cotton's theory has already been thoroughly debunked by multiple scientists.

"There's absolutely nothing in the genome sequence of this virus that indicates the virus was engineered," Richard Ebright, a professor of chemical biology at Rutgers University, told The Washington Post Sunday.

"The possibility this was a deliberately released bioweapon can be firmly excluded."

Vipin Narang, associate professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, also told The Post it was "a skip in logic to say it's a bioweapon" or claim China "developed and intentionally deployed, or even unintentionally deployed" the virus.

"I don't think it's particularly helpful, and it's borderline irresponsible to — and it's without evidence, so at this point it's a conspiracy theory — peddle it," he told the newspaper.

I mean, honestly! Nefarious development and deployment of deadly bioweapons for trivial, stupid reasons is Russia's thing! China just gets to tell every private industry in the western hemisphere to do what they want because they have all the economic leverage! Get it straight, wouldja!
