Talking about the Constitution

Here’s my radio interview about my latest book “How to Argue the Constitution with a Conservative” with Vincent Ford on Gynesis Radio. Check it out!

Warren the Cougar

So a bunch of right-wing trolls decided they’d hold a press release so some young guy could claim he had an affair with Elizabeth Warrren. No one believed him, especially after it came out that he is a convicted felon who had lied about his military experience and responded to the question “Are you on any kind of medication?” with “That’s a violation of the privacy laws concerning medical records” (which is totally what people who are not on medication say).

Bette Midler had a great response:

But then Elizabeth Warren came out and admitted that yes, she is a Cougar:
cougarThis is how you deal with trolls like these: laugh at them.

Of course, that doesn’t stop these idiots who somehow think they’re making some grand point or are pulling a fast one. Take this Trump-supporting girl who showed up at an Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez meeting, pretending to be a supporter, who made a ‘modest proposal’ that we all needed to save the planet by eating babies. It wasn’t long before Trump tweeted “Seems like a normal AOC supporter to me.”

AOC responded like a human being does, saying “This person may have been suffering from a mental condition and it’s not okay that the right-wing is mocking her and potentially make her condition or crisis worse. Be a decent human being and knock it off.”

Of course, it didn’t take long for people to discover that this was just another stupid troll from the right.

That, of course, won’t stop AOC’s detractors from sharing the video and trying to claim this person is one of ours. After all, they have demonstrated many times that facts don’t matter.

Excuses, excuses

I’m sorry I haven’t updated the blog in a while; I’ve been (a) busy promoting my new book “How to Argue the Constitution with a Conservative” and (b) going on a long-needed vacation to Universal Orlando.  And then, of course, when I return, my desk at the law office is covered with files and messages I have to take care of…

So forgive me for just sharing some pictures today of my vacation!  🙂

Trump is a racist

“Trump is many things but not a racist,” say his supporters.

I’m not sure what the guy has to do for people to admit he is a racist. Get fined for refusing to rent to black people? Oh, right, he did that already. Call Mexicans rapists? Oops, done that. Insult Congresspeople who are not white and tell them to go back home? Yep, done that. Demand innocent black men get the death penalty for a crime they didn’t commit? Been there, done that. Insinuate Obama wasn’t born in America simply because he’s black? Oh, right, he was the leader for that one. Call KKK members and nazis “fine people”? Oh, I remember now. Call African countries shitholes? Yep, done that. Hire people whose backgrounds are from white supremacist groups? Plenty of those. Have an Attorney General who was close to the KKK? Yep. Institute a travel ban on Muslims? You bet. Have his casinos fined for discriminatory practices? Absolutely.

Not sure how much evidence people need. Any one of these is enough.

Seriously, anyone who says he isn’t a racist is probably a racist themselves because they agree with all this but are in denial about their own racism.

I knew it!

Apparently, some Ventrella somewhere got into the Urban Dictionary and entered this definition. I promise it was not me!
