Elizabeth Warren Reveals Why She Just Had To Attend Donald Trump’s Inauguration

Some Democrats chose to skip President Donald Trump’s inauguration. But not Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

And on Friday’s broadcast of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Warren revealed the real reason as to why she just felt compelled to attend.

“I wanted to see it, I wanted it burned into my eyes,” she said. “My view on this was that if there were ever going to be a moment when I was like, ‘Uhh, I’m too tired to get up,’ all I’ve got to do is close my eyes and I’m like, ‘Oh God, I’m up! I’m up! I’m up! I’m ready! I’m back in the fight.’”

Warren acknowledged that the history books will record Jan. 20 as being the day Trump took office, but said it was with the Women’s March the following day that “the world changed” as citizens began to make their voices heard.

Bill Maher Rips ‘Whiny Little B***h’ Donald Trump Over His First 100 Days

Bill Maher did not hold back when it came to analyzing President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office.

On Friday, the “Real Time” host tore into Trump over what he’s failed to accomplish and for complaining in a recent interview about the presidency being “more work than in my previous life.”

“Nobody knew that presidenting would be so hard,” said Maher, imitating Trump. “It looked so easy in the movies when Morgan Freeman does it.”

After calling Trump a “whiny little bitch,” Maher then pointed out how there appears to be a three-stage pattern to how he’s operated since taking power.

Firstly, Maher said, Trump boasts how something is “so easy to fix.” He then realizes its complexity which forces him to say, “nobody knew, nobody knew it was hard.” The third phase is essentially reverting back to former President Barack Obama’s policies.

“He’s Continue reading “Bill Maher Rips ‘Whiny Little B***h’ Donald Trump Over His First 100 Days”

Bill Maher To Liberals: Stop Trying To Win Over Donald Trump Voters With Facts

Bill Maher has said liberals are wasting their breath by trying to win over President Donald Trump’s supporters with facts.

On Friday’s broadcast of “Real Time,” Maher said facts simply didn’t matter to Trump’s core voters who “aren’t changing their minds because the problem isn’t in the mind, it’s lower, it’s emotional.”

Maher joked how Trump “looks and acts like a man who’s been painting his face with orange lead for forty years.” But he then added how his supporters “know” that and “don’t care.”

He could have Anne Frank’s skeleton in his closet. They’d all vote for him again,” he quipped.

Maher put it down to Trump’s supporters having a “gut feeling that the world has changed and they don’t like it,” noting how they believe he’s going to “change it back to the way it was.”

Senator’s Anti-LGBTQ Dig Sparks A Tutu Revolution In Wyoming

A Wyoming senator may have already apologized for insensitive comments about a man in a tutu, but it was too late to stop a tutu rebellion in his state.

Republican Mike Enzi told a group of middle school and high school students in the town of Greybull on April 20 an anecdote about a man who goes to bars wearing a tutu and “is always surprised that he gets in fights,” reported the Greybull Standard. Enzi added: “Well, he kind of asks for it.” 

The comment was especially thoughtless because of the savage fatal torture in Laramie, Wyoming, nine years ago of 21-year-old Matthew Shepard, who was attacked because he was gay. Strangely, Enzi made his comments as he was encouraging a “little civility” among people when he was asked what he was doing for the LGBTQ community. He noted, however, that “you can be just about anything Continue reading “Senator’s Anti-LGBTQ Dig Sparks A Tutu Revolution In Wyoming”

Open thread for night owls: Exxon fined $20 million for Clean Air Act violations under Tillerson

While Rex Tillerson attempts to run an emptied-out State Department, the company he ran for a decade is once again being called to account for its hostility to American law.

ExxonMobil was ordered to pay $20 million in fines for releasing 10 million pounds of pollutants into the air from a Texas chemical plant.

District Judge David Hittner said that the company violated the Clean Air Act 16,386 times from 2005 to 2013, CNN reports. The court also found the company reaped millions economically because it delayed improvements at the facility where it released the pollutants, located in Baytown, Tex.

The court estimated ExxonMobil gained about $14 million from dodging anti-pollution requirements, so the $20 million fine is not as large as it might at first sound. The company has not yet said whether it will appeal.

Twitter Explodes Over Trump’s Surprise At The Demands Of Being President

After Donald Trump confessed to Reuters that he thought being president would be “easier” than it is, Twitter blew up with aghast responses from voters, people in politics and at least one former head of state, who pleaded with the president to please quit the White House and just stick to the golf links.

Trump’s remarks in an interview published Friday (”This is more work than in my previous life; I thought it would be easier”) drew a storm of comments expressing astonishment and derision, mostly delivered in the snarkiest way possible.

The comments were similar to Trump’s astonishing remark in February, when he observed: “Nobody knew health care could be so complicated.” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) laughed at first when asked about that comment but then got Continue reading “Twitter Explodes Over Trump’s Surprise At The Demands Of Being President”
