Convict Donald Trump!

At least 8 fake electors have been granted immunity in the Georgia Trump investigation

The disgraced ex-president’s very illegal and incredibly stupid plan to simply put forward a slate of “fake electors” to overturn the 2020 general election results in Georgia came back to bite him in a big way yesterday, as Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis granted immunity to at least eight Trump accomplices in her sprawling criminal investigation — typically a sign that defendants have become witnesses against a bigger, smellier fish. And in this case, they’ve got the goods on the biggest, smelliest fish of all. [RETWEET THAT!]

VIDEO OF THE DAY: Trump accidentally screws himself during taped deposition

Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States, in a sworn deposition for his rape defamation case, doubled down on his infamous “grab ’em by the p*ssy” remarks and said that stars have been able to behave that way for a million years, “unfortunately or fortunately.” You read that right.

Top Republican goes to bat…for Harvey Weinstein AND Bill Cosby
North Carolina Republican Lt. Gov. and man in desperate need of a new moral compass Mark Robinson claimed that Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby of all people were victims of a left-wing “plot” to destroy them for their “so-called sexual crimes.” Robinson became a right-wing media darling after he delivered a viral pro-gun rant at a city council meeting following the 2018 Parkland mass shooting, because if there’s one thing Republicans are good at, it’s politicizing unspeakable tragedies of their own making while vilifying anyone who dares to challenge the status quo.

Ron DeSantis goes all out praising “fantastic” Tucker Carlson
The bumbling Florida governor and literal, real-life Disney villain capped off a string of very bad weeks with a curious defense of former Fox News bloviator and concerned citizen who’s just asking questions, Tucker Carlson, whom he praised as a “fantastic individual.” Nothing shores up wobbly support among very white, very scared conservatives like wrapping your arms around a vindictive, unemployed white nationalist, apparently.

Man who strangled Jordan Neely to death on subway claims he acted in self-defense
Daniel Penny, the 24-year-old former US Marine who fatally choked Jordan Neely on a New York City subway train, released a statement claiming that he and others “acted to protect themselves” from the unhoused street performer who was behaving erratically and threatening others on the train. In bystander video from inside the train car, a passenger can be heard ominously warning Penny, “you don’t want to catch a murder charge. You got a hell of a chokehold, man.”

Iowa becomes second GOP-controlled state this year to pass repeal of child labor protections
Along with passing forced pregnancy laws and measures to punish parents for supporting their transgender children, “family values” Republicans are now pushing numerous bills to loosen child labor regulations, because somebody’s gotta work those menial, low-wage, high-risk jobs to keep America™ humming! Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds has vowed to remove “unnecessary restrictions” that have kept minors from working in hazardous workplaces and from working long hours during the school year, citing the need for kids to develop a “strong work ethic” and save money for college. Got it.

Bill Barr lashes out at “horror show” Donald Trump
In his futile, never-ending redemption tour, Bill Barr once again attempted to distance himself from the human wrecking ball he enabled and protected as attorney general, declaring Trump unfit to be president ever again. Clowns like Barr may genuinely want out of Trump’s chaos circus, but they get zero points for coming to their senses after the fact. The damage has been done.

No. 2 Democratic leader caught secretly working with GOP
Facing the possibility of an unsafe district, Jim Clyburn — South Carolina’s most powerful Democrat — quietly colluded with the GOP on a redistricting plan that diluted Black voting strength in neighboring districts to help keep his seat as favorable as possible. The racially gerrymandered map the 16-term Democrat helped negotiate behind the scenes all but eliminated his party’s chances of gaining congressional seats in South Carolina, strengthening the Republican stranglehold on the deep south state where African Americans make up nearly 27% of the population.
