Congressional Interns With ‘MAGA’ Hats Try to Get Ride to Hotel From Uber. Here’s What Happens Instead.

A group of congressional interns with MAGA hats attempted to catch a ride with an Uber to the Trump International Hotel in Washington, but the driver had other plans.

His other plans included refusing them service, a practice which most conservatives and folks on the right have no problem with, but the left has condemned repeatedly over and over again. That is, until it’s conveniently used by them in their own businesses.

Matthew Handy, an intern for Rep. Mike Bost, R-Ill., told the Washington Examiner he and three other congressional interns hailed an Uber on Tuesday night near George Washington University, having ordered it to take them to a monthly gathering of Trump supporters at the Old Post Office.

Handy was purposely holding his red hat emblazoned with President Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan in his hand as to not “impose” his beliefs on the driver when he took his seat behind him, he said on Thursday.

Handy had yet to close the door when the driver allegedly asked him whether he and one other intern had “Make American Great Again” hats.

“He then said ‘I can’t do the ride,'” Handy said of the driver after the two interns confirmed that they were.

Handy recounted that his first reaction was to laugh because last time he was questioned by an Uber driver about his “Make American Great Again” hat the man had been joking.

“We asked whether he was being serious right now and he said ‘Please get out of my car,'” Handy said, describing the driver’s behavior as “rude” but not threatening.

Now, a lot of folks are stating it was wrong for this driver to refuse these folks service, but that doesn’t jive well at all with the right’s claim that any employee of any business has the right to deny service for any reason.

If we want to have freedom to refuse baking a gay wedding cake, then we have to apply this principle fairly and evenly across all areas. You can’t get mad at the left for doing exactly what we’re doing.

Could the man have maybe handled the situation better? Perhaps. But again, he wasn’t threatening, just rude. That’s much easier to fix than someone who becomes mentally unglued over.

Still, we must be sure to be consistent in our views, and this driver was well within his rights to say no.

The first openly gay cabinet member got little to no recognition from the mainstream media because he worked for a Republican administration. After all, the MSM works as the public relations branch of the Democrat Party. What Richard Grenell said on Monday, though, will have every liberal in the media listening intently. #Trump2024 WATCH: https://twitter.com/danielchaitin7/status/1353516978544250882?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1353516978544250882%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frichard-grenell-trump-does-want-to-run-again-in-2024-video%2F President Tucker Carlson? How does that sound to you? Could it one day happen, perhaps as soon as 2024? Only time will tell, obviously, but the rumor is abuzzin’. From Politico: Tucker Carlson’s audience is booming — and so is chatter that the popular Fox News host will parlay his TV perch into a run for president in 2024. Republican strategists, conservative commentators, and former Trump campaign and administration officials are buzzing about Carlson as the next-generation leader of Donald Trump’s movement — with many believing he would be an immediate frontrunner in a Republican primary. CONTINUED: “He’s a talented communicator with a massive platform. I think if he runs he’d be formidable,” said Luke Thompson, a Republican strategist who worked for Jeb Bush’s super PAC in 2016. While practically every Republican eyeing a 2024 presidential run is professing loyalty to Trump the person, Carlson has become perhaps the highest-profile proponent of “Trumpism” — a blend of anti-immigrant nationalism, economic populism and America First isolationism that he articulates unapologetically and with some snark. At the same time, he’s shown a rare willingness among Republicans to bluntly criticize Trump when he believes the president is straying from that ideology.

Chief Justice Roberts Will Not Preside Over Impeachment Trial, Will Be Top Dem Leader Instead

They want revenge, vengeance.

“Wanna know how I got these scars?” That was the question Heath Ledger’s Joker asked a partygoer in 2008’s The Dark Knight. Said partygoer is the man who will preside over the second impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Not a joke. Just search the internet for SENATOR LEAHY BATMAN. From The Hill: Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts will not preside over former President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, which is scheduled to begin in earnest on Feb. 8. Instead, Senate President Pro Tempore Patrick Leahy (Vt.), the most senior member of the Senate Democratic Conference, will preside over the trial. CONTINUED: Leahy on Monday confirmed he would wield the gavel and promised to administer “impartial justice.” “The president pro tempore has historically presided over Senate impeachment trials of non-presidents. When presiding over an impeachment trial, the president pro tempore takes an additional special oath to do impartial justice according to the Constitution and its laws. It is an oath that I take extraordinarily seriously,” he said in a statement. How incredibly moronic is it to impeach a president after he has left office? What a waste of time. Democrats have proven, time and again, that they are not out for “unity.” Not at all. They want revenge; vengeance; blood. Okay, I did the search for you.
