Michelle Wolf Refuses to Apologize for Brutal Attacks on Sanders, Doubles Down Instead

Published

on

Michelle Wolf, the comedienne who has now become famous after launching a brutal attack against Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, is not at all sorry for her comments and is actually doubling down on them.

What makes this situation so egregious is that Sanders was sitting close to Wolf in the audience when she made her comments, which in all honesty were badly done attempts to look cool, hip, and “woke.”

Sanders wasn’t the only target of Wolf’s vitriol. She tossed out insults targeting many different individuals within the Trump administration, causing many folks on both sides of the aisle to be disgusted by her behavior.

In an unapologetic interview with NPR after the dinner, Wolf says she does not regret a word of the speech and that she is “glad [she] stuck to [her] guns.”

When asked specifically about the attacks on Sarah Sanders’ looks, Wolf demurred. The comedian said that her joke attacking Sanders’ makeup “wasn’t about Sarah’s looks.” She added that comparing the White House press secretary to a frumpy fictional character that runs a sex-cult in “The Handmaiden’s Tale” was a reference to her “personality.”

What’s really mind blowing is that Wolf spoke to NPR about things that weren’t caught on camera and the comedienne  slammed Sanders — again — for not clapping when CNN won an award:

Part of the dinner that wasn’t televised is they were giving out awards and everyone was standing to congratulate the people that were getting awards and [White House press secretary] Sarah [Sanders] was sitting. … CNN reporters got awards. … They came up to accept them and [Sanders] sat the whole time, while we all stood and shook their hands. I would say if this is about celebrating the media, she wasn’t there to celebrate the media.

Why would Sanders want to celebrate the news media, who have dedicated the vast majority of their programming time to destroying her, the president, and the pro-America agenda they are trying to pass in order to improve life for American citizens and preserve our liberty?

CNN has built their entire platform the last two years on trying to dig up something, anything, that will bury Trump and get him ousted from office. The reporters from this organization have been increasingly hostile and rude toward Sanders.

Would Wolf be clapping if the tables were turned? Probably not. She’d be a raging mess looking for any excuse possible to lash out at those who attacked her.

Sanders has graciously refused to engage in any sort of back and forth over Wolf’s comments simply stating she was “praying for her.”

That’s class.

Trump Weighs in on Cleveland Baseball Name Change…and It’s Not Pretty

The former President was NOT happy!

Published

on

Donald Trump, like a great many conservatives around the nation, isn’t all that thrilled with the way in which our national culture is changing.  Of course, this isn’t terribly surprising given that this is the nature of conserving, to allow things to remain the same or to work to bring the nation back to the way it was. So, almost predictably, Trump had plenty to say about the recent change announced by the Cleveland Indians baseball team. In a statement, Trump wrote that he is a “FORMER” baseball fan and said “a small group of people, with absolutely crazy ideas and policies, is forcing these changes to destroy our culture and heritage.” The name change came after years of protests from Native American groups and baseball fans. The former President had a far different opinion than many. Trump’s statement said he thought the name was an “honor.” However, the Lake Erie Native American Council released a statement supporting the team’s new name, WTOL reports. “We are pleased the Cleveland baseball team took a comprehensive approach to listen and learn and show it is possible to take steps toward change,” the statement read. The name change came just months after the Washington Redskins dropped their own mascot to temporarily become the “Washington Football Team”, just until a new moniker could be decided upon.

Tests Show QAnon Shaman is ‘Mentally Ill’, According to His Own Lawyer

But is this all just a part of a broader legal strategy?

Published

From the moment that Jacob Chansley set foot on our television screens, we knew that we’d be talking about him for some time into the future. Chansley, known more commonly as the “QAnon Shaman”, was the iconic character who participated in the January 6th insurrection shirtless, with his face painted, and wearing a large fur headdress adorned with bison horns. Now, as Chansley faces charges in the storming of the Capitol, his lawyers are trying a rather tricky defense:  They’re claiming that the Shaman doesn’t possess full control over his faculties.  In an interview, defense lawyer Albert Watkins said that officials at the federal Bureau of Prisons, or BOP, have diagnosed his client Jacob Chansley with transient schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety. The BOP’s findings, which have not yet been made public, suggest Chansley’s mental condition deteriorated due to the stress of being held in solitary confinement at a jail in Alexandria, Virginia, Watkins said. “As he spent more time in solitary confinement … the decline in his acuity was noticeable, even to an untrained eye,” Watkins said in an interview on Thursday. But is this all just legal maneuvering? Watkins said authorities will need to determine how Chansley can get access to the treatment he needs to “actively participate in his own defense.” Pleading guilty to a charge negates the need for a trial, but defendants still have to be declared mentally competent to do so. Watkins said the BOP’s evaluation of his client did not declare Chansley to be mentally incompetent, and he does not expect Chansley to be ordered to undergo what is known as competency restoration treatment. Watkins turned heads early on in his role at attorney for the Shaman, after making derogatory remarks about his own client’s mental health, using phrases that are deemed unprintable…
