Finally: LA Times columnist-cartoonist apologizes for fat-shaming Sarah Huckabee Sanders

Published

on

The mainstream media has resorted to fat-shaming President Donald J. Trump’s press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in a column and cartoon that depicts the wife and mother in a 1930s fascist-style uniform.

I want to apologize to Times readers — and to Sarah Huckabee Sanders — for a description that was insensitive and failed to meet the standards of our newspaper. It also failed to meet the expectations I have for myself. It surely won’t be my last mistake, but this particular error will be scrupulously avoided in my future commentaries. I’ve removed the offending description.

In a Los Angeles Times article titled, “Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the right mouthpiece for a truth-twisting president,” writer David Horsey criticized Sanders’ appearance with lines such as: “looks more like a slightly chunky soccer mom who organizes snacks for the kids’ games” or “rather than the fake eyelashes and formal dresses she puts on for news briefings, Sanders seems as if she’d be more comfortable in sweats and running shoes.”

In 2016, the LA Times devoted an entire article to the describing the awful feeling of shame that some amusement-park goers feel when they are too heavy to ride a roller coaster. How horrifying it must be to have to follow safety guidelines meant to protect thrill-seekers from being hurled off of the tilt-a-whirl.

That’s unacceptable, but apparently, it is completely in bounds to make fun of the press secretary for her weight.

Similarly, The New York Times’ Frank Bruni found it appropriate to mock Sanders’ southern accent.

“To listen to her pronounce ‘priorities’ is akin to hearing the air seep out of a flat tire, and she leaves half of the consonants on the curb,” he said.

The Times might re-evaluate it’s own priorities, considering that it buried this week’s bombshell revelation that the DNC rigged the 2016 primary in an article about Hillary Clinton winning the Democratic Woman of the Year Award at the Women’s Democratic National Club on Thursday.

It is the real takeaway that shaming is only out of bounds unless one is shaming Republicans.

COULTER: Detained Illegals Are “Being Separated From Coyotes and Drug Mules”

Published

on

Author and pundit Ann Coulter was confronted by a TMZ cameraman today, and the result was not pretty for the paparazzo.

“The biggest thing is these kids are being separated from their parents,” said the cameraman posing a lefty journalist

Coulter responded in her usual ruthless manner.

“They’re being separated from coyotes and drug mules, that has already been proven before” she said.

WATCH:

Coulter continued to savage her adversary.

“The parents can stay in Mexico,” she said. “You don’t get to get out of committing crimes in this country because you have a baby. I mean, why don’t we let out Bernie Madoff. His kids suffered. One committed suicide.”

The activist then brought up the First Ladies who have denounced President Donald J. Trump’s zero tolerance policy.

“Thank God First Ladies aren’t elected officials,” Coulter replied with a grin.

When asked if she thought this would be a “stain on our country’s history,” Coulter delivered her knockout blow.

“It’s going to be the END of our country’s history if we let these hordes in,” she said. “It will never, never stop.”

WaPo Employees Beg Bezos for Raise

Published

on

More than 400 employees at the Washington Post have signed an open letter to owner Jeff Bezos demanding better working conditions after more than a year of failed negotiations with upper management.

“[Dear Jeff Bezos] we workers of The Washington Post have been bargaining for a year and have little to show for it because The Post won’t meet us halfway on much of anything,” says a tweet shared by the Post Guild. “We love The Post. We know you do too. Our work has earned us more than what The Post is offering.”

According to Deadlinesignees of the letter include prominent employees like White House reporter Ashley Parker and political reporter Dave Weigel.

Bezos is the founder, chairman, and CEO of Amazon. His estimated net worth is nearly $142 billion. He bought the paper in 2013.

The left-wing culture that has engulfed the Washington Post has spilled over into the office, and come back to bite Bezos. His employees are calling on him to “share the wealth” that they claim to have created.

“All we are asking for is fairness for each and every employee who contributed to this company’s success: fair wages; fair benefits for retirement, family leave and health care; and a fair amount of job security,” the petition says.

The staff accompanied the petition with a video.

WATCH:

“I’m fighting for equal pay, because regardless of gender or skin color, we all deserve to be paid the same,” said a compilation of employees in the video.

The sword of social justice appears to be turning inward on the Washington Post.

Chris Pratt At MTV Awards: “God Is Real, You Have A Soul, Learn To Pray”

It was a welcomed change to most Hollywood speeches

Published

on

While accepting the Generation Award at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, world-renowned actor Chris Pratt used his platform to preach his belief in God to a massive nationwide audience. In his acceptance speech, he laid out 9 rules for life, with a series of jokes, along with a number of solid pieces of life advice. Among his advice are “you have a soul, be careful with it,” and that “God is real,” and that he “loves you.” He also encourages those listening to him to learn to pray, telling them that it’s easy, and that it’s “good for the soul.”

All nine of his rules can be read here:

  1. “Breathe. If you don’t, you will suffocate.”
  2. “You have a soul. Be careful with it.”
  3. “Don’t be a turd. If you are strong, be a protector. If you are smart, be a humble influencer. Strength and intelligence can be weapons, so do not wield them against the weak. That makes you a bully. Be bigger than that.”
  4. “When giving a dog medicine, put the medicine in a little piece of hamburger and they won’t even know they’re eating medicine.”
  5. “It doesn’t matter what it is. Earn it. A good deed. Reach out to someone in pain. Be of service. It feels good and it’s good for your soul.”
  6. “God is real. God loves you, God wants the best for you. Believe that, I do.”
  7. “If you have to poop at a party, but you’re embarrassed because you’re going to stink up the bathroom, just do what I do. Lock the door, sit down, get all of the pee out first. And then, once all the pee is done, poop, flush, boom! You minimize the amount of time that the poop’s touching the air. Because if you poop first, it takes you longer to pee and then you’re peeing on top of it, stirring up the poop particles, create a cloud, goes out, then everyone at the party will know that you pooped. Just trust me, it’s science.”
  8. “Learn to pray. It’s easy, and it is so good for your soul.”
  9. “Nobody is perfect. People will tell you that you are perfect just the way that you are, you are not! You are imperfect. You always will be, but there is a powerful force that designed you that way, and if you are willing to accept that, you will have grace. And grace is a gift. Like the freedom that we enjoy in this country, that grace was paid for with somebody else’s blood. Do not forget that. Don’t take that for granted.”

This speech is a wholesome change of pace from what many in Hollywood have been saying at similar award ceremonies. Recently, Hollywood actor Robert De Niro used his time on stage at the Tony Awards to yell “f*** Trump!” His stunt resulted in thunderous applause from the audience mostly full of Hollywood elites.

Surprisingly, Pratt’s speech also resulted in loud applause, despite a handful of visible dissenters in the crowd when he spoke about his faith. This likely has to do with Pratt’s enormous profile as one of the biggest names in Hollywood. Virtually everything he is a part of becomes a hit, and his upcoming movie “Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom” isn’t expected to be any different.

The Generation Award he was receiving showcases just how high profile of a celebrity he is. The award is given to those who show great achievement in movies. Recent winners include Will Smith, Robert Downey Jr., and Johnny Depp.
