Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg referred to South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham Tuesday as one of the “women of the Senate.”
The 84-year-old Supreme Court justice delivered remarks at Allegheny College in Pennsylvania on Monday as she accepted the Prize for Civility in Public Life, honoring her and late Justice Antonin Scalia.
“Let’s hope members of Congress, the members Allegheny College has already honored – Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. John McCain – the women of the Senate, Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Lindsey Graham – let’s hope that they and others of goodwill will lead in restoring harmonious work ways,” Ginsburg said during her acceptance speech.
Graham has been continuously mocked for his effeminate mannerisms. Former Daily Show host Jon Stewart gained a lot of traction during the presidential campaign for his Graham impression, which recalled Blanche DuBois of Tennessee Williams’ play A Streetcar Named Desire.
Graham and his fellow neoconservative senators John McCain and Marco Rubio have been the biggest Trump critics in the Senate so far, blasting the president for his campaign’s supposed — but completely unproved — coordination with the Russians during the election cycle.
A Washington insider told Breitbart News that Graham remarked to McCain on Election Night, “Now we’re going to have to deal with this guy for four years.” To which McCain responded, “No, he’s going to have to deal with us.”
Trump’s clashes with Graham on the campaign trail are the stuff of legend, including his stunt encouraging supporters to call Graham’s personal cell phone number. Graham earned boos at Trump rallies on the campaign trail, including a major rally in Greenville ahead of the South Carolina primary, where Trump won a resounding victory.
California Democrat Harley Rouda Has a Restraining Order Against Him- Filed by His Own Mother!
That’s a new one!
A California freshman Democrat has a restraining order filed against him- by his own mother!
Harley Rouda, who represents California’s 48th Congressional district, has had a restraining order filed against him by his mother, Marlese Rouda, since 2011. View the document here. Rogue Review first reported on the bizarre legal development on Tuesday.
Rouda is legally restrained from “directly or indirectly harassing, annoying, interfering with, harassing by telephone, assaulting, or doing bodily harm, to Defendant, Marlese N. Rouda…”
Maybe a restraining order from an ex-girlfriend or wife is one thing, but it’s somewhat of a legal novelty to have a restraining order filed against you by your own mother. The order was granted by a judge in a Franklin County, Ohio Court Division of Domestic Relations, so it’s likely he engaged in poor behavior of some kind against his own mother.
An earlier clause in the restraining order bars Rouda from selling, destroying or taking possession of any household property belonging to his mother, suggesting the order might’ve been granted after Harley Rouda stole or sold some of his mother’s possessions.
Rouda is a freshman Democrat running for reelection in the Orange County District against Republican Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel. California Republicans view the formerly red, now purple congressional seat as within their reach after a Republican retook the nearby 25th district in a special election earlier this year.
There might be some mothers who have second thoughts about voting for Rouda’s reelection, after finding out that he hasn’t exactly been the most loving son to his own mother.
