Warren got her Coretta Scott King on and the angry white guys got angry that she violated an arcane rule that the angry white guys have no problem violating when it suits them (IOKIYAR). Of course, the fact that Kingís letter impugned the character and judgment of the racist Sessions is what gives the GOP fits encapsulates the entire state of politics in 2017.
Women stand up for their rights, and are swatted down by the misogynists.
Minorities stand up for their rights, and angry white guys complain that their rights are being diminished (because they donít have the hegemony that they once did).
Meanwhile, Bannon/Trump are still droning on about how crime rates are at multiyear highs, when itís actually the opposite. Multi Decade lows - both as far as rates and overall figures. But Bannon/Trump donít care about facts. They simply want their supporters to feel unsafe so that Bannon/Trump can swoop in and curb civil and voting rights.
The Muslim ban is just one example. Bannon/Trump are lying every time they open their mouths about how the program works and would keep Americans safe. Yet when it came time to put up in the 9th Circuit, their lawyers had to admit they had nothing.
Authoritarian. Ignorant. Misogynistic. Anti-reality/anti-fact/anti-science.
This is the GOP as it stands today.
The topper is that this morning Yemen revoked permission for the US to carry out airstrikes/missions in Yemen. That, in a nutshell, makes the US less safe thanks to Trump.
