The California progressive had led a drive to rename manholes “maintenance holes.”

A Berkeley, California city councilor denied a request to appear on primetime Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s show on Thursday in prolific fashion.

Rigel Robinson tweeted an email exchange with a booker for Carlson’s show, in which he called the primetime host a “white supremacist goblin.”

The city councilor had sponsored a drive to rename manholes- the term commonly used in the English language for the covers of sewer access pipes on the streets- to “maintenance holes.” According to Robinson, the new word imagined for the the objects is nominally more “inclusive” than its predecessor.

Carlson’s scheduler reached out hoping to book Robinson to explain his move. Robinson flipped out in response, making the leap from gender-neutral language to accusing Carlson of racism in relatively unprecedented terms.

“Unfortunately I won’t be able to come on the show,” Robinson expressed in his email. “Tucker Carlson is a dangerous, xenophobic, racist, white supremacist goblin who I am not interested in engaging with.

The email thread in which Robinson accused Carlson of being a fantasy creature from J.R.R Tolkien’s universe was deleted on Twitter as of Friday morning, and it’s unclear if the tweet was removed by the city councilor or censored by Twitter. Robinson’s affiliation with the progressive left makes the former far more likely.

Although his desperate bid to avoid being questioned on Orwellian redefinition tactics appears to have succeeded for now, the progressive has made it clear that he has no genuine argument for stripping the term “manhole” of its commonly known and traditional title.

Neocon David Frum: Trump one of the “Fattest Presidents Ever”

These guys are all substance, we’re told.

Published

Neoconservative pundit and former Bush administration Iraq War architect David Frum made himself a target of mockery for a personal attack on President Trump’s physical fitness.

Frum claimed on CNN Sunday that “Donald Trump was the oldest president ever, one of the fattest presidents ever, the least physically capable president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt was in a wheelchair.”

The personal attack devolved into hyperbole when Frum claimed Trump “can’t pick up a ball, never mind throw it.

Trump’s latest medical physical revealed him to be overweight, but claims that he’s the fattest President in history are categorically incorrect. William Taft had the highest BMI (body mass index) of any U.S President, famously being rumored for becoming trapped in a White House bathtub. Analysis of various Presidents shows that Trump’s BMI is generally on par with Presidents Teddy Roosevelt and Zachary Taylor.

In any case, it’s probably not the most newsworthy of stories that a 73-year old man who works constantly is overweight. Trump’s medical documents have consistently painted a picture of a President in good health.

Frum tried to revise his own remarks in a tweet after being mocked on the schoolyard bullying, claiming that it was only fair to talk about Trump’s weight when conservative commentators questioned Hillary Clinton’s health in the 2016 election.

But there’s little to no comparison between Trump’s weight and Hillary’s health concerns. The former Secretary of State was often befit with wheezing fits and had to leave campaign events early appearing extremely disoriented during the 2016 campaign.

The deposed class of neoconservative pundits such as Frum fancies themselves “principled” commentators, yet a mere scratch on the surface shows them to be no more shallow than the most vacuous of smug cultural liberals.
