Donna Brazile who, most recently, was the interim chairperson for the Democratic National Committee, revealed last week that Hillary Clinton had the DNC in her pocket and Bernie Sanders never had a chance.
Interesting coming from a woman who, herself, was the subject of a scandal concerning the 2016 presidential election: She twice sent emails to the Clinton campaign giving them debate questions in advance.
Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
Yet another member of the Hollywood elite has been accused of sexual harassment. This time it’s Kevin Spacey who allegedly sexually assaulted a 14-year-old boy — in addition to many, many, many other transgressions.
In what is now becoming the norm for dealing with famous sexual predators, within days of the news breaking, the punishments came fast and furious:
Netflix announced it was ending its multi award-winning series, House of Cards and also stated they will not release the film Gore, which is currently in post-production. The Emmy Awards declared they would no longer give him the 2017 International Emmy Founders Award. His talent agency, Creative Arts, dropped him. He’s under investigation in London and a Dutch business forum cancelled his headline appearance at a conference in Rotterdam.
While the public wasn’t aware of what he was up to — and still is up to, by the way — apparently theatrical and Hollywood insiders did know.
So let me get this straight. As long as his bad, bad, bad behaviour was hush-hush it was okay to treat him with kid gloves and lavish him with praise and starring roles and big bucks and multiple award nominations — BUT — once the cat was out of the bag — well — that was a different matter entirely. Then you could be appalled.
Last Sunday a lone gunman wielding an AR15 blasted his way into a church in Texas, killing at least 26 people and injuring around 20 more. In response to yet another senseless tragedy Ken Paxton, the Texas Attorney General, urged more people to bring guns to church. The governor of Texas, Grep Abbott, suggested that you overcome evil with love and working closer with God — as opposed to gun control legislation.
And the Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt said that the dozens of people who were killed in Texas “had gone to the right place to be shot because they were close to Jesus at the time of their death.”
Who knew that even getting slaughtered is all about location, location, location?
Perhaps it’s time to start doing some IQ testing; and if it turns out that you have the intellect of a turnip you should be forbidden from running for office, voting in an election or speaking publicly.
