Your WTF Politics Round-Up: Bush's Anchor Babies And Trump's Alabama
No wonder Jon Stewart left The Daily Show. Who needs to make comedy about American politics when the stories themselves are such goddamn jokes?
Your week in the WTF politics:
Donald Trump made insulting other reality TV star’s hotness a part of his campaign. Because…immigrants? (Pajiba)
In other insane Trump news, his people claim that 1/5 of the population of Mobile, Alabama is expected to turn out to his next campaign stop, necessitating a move to a bigger venue. Unknown is how many are coming for “shits and giggles.” (CNN)
“Traditional family values” lobbyist Josh Duggar is having a tough week. (Pajiba)
The Dottie’s Sister of the Republican race, Jeb Bush, is under fire for describing the children born in the U.S. to foreign-born parents as “anchor babies.” (NBC)
Social media maven/Presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton fired back with a Twitter double-tap.
They're called babies. https://t.co/VyJJA26OVl— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) August 19, 2015
.@JebBush "Give me another word" than "anchor babies"— Kelly O'Donnell (@KellyO) August 20, 2015
How about "babies," "children," or "American citizens." https://t.co/ofxEG6Za00— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) August 20, 2015
Se llaman "bebés," "niños," o "ciudadanos." https://t.co/ofxEG6Za00— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) August 20, 2015
And despite leaving us in our time of need, Stewart might be our savior from all this madness all the same. A petition requesting the comedian host a 2016 presidential debate is blowing up, already earning 146,000 signatures. If it hits 150k, he has to do it, right? Like then it’s a presidential mandate?
