Here’s a real quick political nooner, because entertainment news is severely lacking today (although, we have some fun stuff coming).
— Paul Ryan finally grew half a vertebrae in his spine today, by 1) agreeing with Trey Gowdy that there was no spy in the Trump campaign (a Trump conspiracy narrative that is dying a slow death), and 2) saying, in response to whether Trump could pardon himself: “I don’t know the technical answer to that question, but I think obviously the answer is he shouldn’t. And no one is above the law.”
That fleeting moment of logic and common sense will almost certainly get him called a RHINO cuck at least 47,000 times today. Don’t care.
— Speaking of conspiracy theories, Donald Trump loves to spread them — the birther conspiracy, Ted Cruz’s Dad killed JFK, Obama tapped his phones, etc. — unless they are about his wife.
The Fake News Media has been so unfair, and vicious, to my wife and our great First Lady, Melania. During her recovery from surgery they reported everything from near death, to facelift, to left the W.H. (and me) for N.Y. or Virginia, to abuse. All Fake, she is doing really well!— Donald J.

It’s a real jerk move to falsely suggest someone had work done, isn’t it?
I can’t even imagine. https://t.co/WrwlEc37OH— Mika Brzezinski (@morningmika) June 6, 2018
I agree that it would be “vicious” and “unfair” to lie about a loved one having a facelift for the purpose of causing pain and embarrassment. Mr. President, can you imagine anyone would be so cruel to do such a thing? https://t.co/zfqjt1LKw2— Joe Scarborough (@JoeNBC) June 6, 2018
— Remember when Trump tweeted this yesterday:
Separating families at the Border is the fault of bad legislation passed by the Democrats. Border Security laws should be changed but the Dems can’t get their act together! Started the Wall.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 5, 2018
Democrats, huh? Here’s what Jeff Sessions had to say yesterday when pressed by conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt about the policy: “If people don’t want to be separated from their children, they should not bring them with them.” He also stated that asylum seekers — people escaping murderers in their home countries — have no “moral right” to come to America, and also admitted that he hasn’t visited any of the facilities that house the children being taken away from their parents. Apparently, no one has.
— Finally, this is fantastic:
At The White House. One guy in the audience took a knee during the national anthem at President Trumps celebration of America no Eagles event. Left right after - didn’t wanna talk pic.twitter.com/NLRGp26gln— Jesper Zølck (@zolckTv2) June 5, 2018
When white people ask me ‘what can I possibly do to dismantle white supremacy?’ and i say there are small things you can do—this is one of those small things.— Imani Gandy (@AngryBlackLady) June 6, 2018
Small acts of resistance lead to larger acts of resistance. They can empower you to do more.
