It was a rough week for edgy comedian Kathy Griffin after she appeared in a photo with the severed head of President Trump. America, the butthurt, decided the picture was so bad that Griffin deserved to be maligned in the press, fired from CNN and basically left to the wolves. This post isn’t about what is deemed as distasteful because comedians aren’t required to tell jokes that are palatable for the majority. A great comedian’s job is to tell the truth, exposed the absurdity and through that joke we are connected to the same human experience. Griffin made a fatal mistake. She apologized. The great comedians such as Richard Pryor, Lenny Bruce, Joan Rivers never fucking apologized for the joke they told and that is why they were respected and revered. If you are the type of comedian that really gives a fuck what people think, you will never be one of the greats. You’ll be like Griffin apologizing for what is an inalienable right to free speech.
We are seeing trends of a leader who wants to silence you. Under President Trump’s reign as Terrorist in Chief, we’ve seen journalists maligned and bullied, we’ve seen this orange turd try to use intimidation to keep things out of the press and now we see comedians being force to apologize for jokes, including photos, to an admitted pussy grabber! How fucking crazy is that?
When comedians are intimidated into making apologies it’s just one small step towards forcibly silencing everyone you, remember that. Our right to say whatever the fuck we want is what has kept America free and great for the last 241 years despite what this orange asshat in the White House says or does.
In honor of Kathy Griffin and freedom of speech, fuck you Trump, you headless moron.
Despite the failure of Trump’s Healthcare bill Russia-gate is this week’s hot story. Today Trump Senior Advisor and son- in-law Jared Kushner, was questioned about meetings with the Russian Sergey I. Kislyak, who has ties with Putin. Kushner also met with high roller Russian bank executive Sergey N. Gorkov, the chief of Vnesheconombank, which the United States placed on its sanctions list after President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia annexed Crimea and began meddling in Ukraine. The Senate is also questioning other members of Trump’s administration for the meetings while Trump was campaigning for President. Here are the major players involved in this Russia-gate saga.
The Russian interference in the election was disturbing enough, but to know that Putin has his hands up our president’s ass and is using him as a puppet, should be alarming to everyone! What is most disturbing is the fact that American’s and other politicians from the left and right are calling for an independent investigation, yet we are still dealing with a Republican investigation headed by Devin Nunes, also known as the “Trump Whisperer” by White House staffers who claim Nunes is up at the White House “all the time.” Republicans are more concerned with protecting the party rather than working for the American people’s interest, and this will cost them both the House and Senate in 2018. Despite what Trump says it won’t be because of the failure of the heath care bill that does it. It will be because people are fatigued by the obvious dishonesty and crookedness of the Donald Trump administration.
According to Donald Trump, he said at the impromptu news conference, “The leaks are real, the news is fake.” This quote will probably go down in history as one of the best presidential quotes ever. “The Donald” says he never talked to Russians or ordered any of his top-level advisers to talk to the Russians, however we are learning that is an “alternative fact.”
More important is even conservative commentators on Fox News are pointing out the instability of this president, and his ability to lie at a drop of a dime. According to White House insiders Trump is constantly watching conservative channels that generally favor him. But that is changing.
