Welcome to Tuesday’s edition of Redstate’s Water Cooler- a daily open thread where readers are free to comment on anything of interest. This writer brings you the best and brightest from the front lines of the culture war. Enjoy.
Jerk of the Week
The Jerk of the Week Award goes to Z-list “comedienne” Kathy Griffith who responded to Sarah Huckabee Sanders being asked to leave a restaurant in Virginia with this reaction. Griffith, you may recall, looks something like a cross between Howdy Doody and Carrot Top’s sister.
Look Doll, now that you’ve been recruited as the entire defense of line for the Dallas Cowboys, just enjoy life. Quit bitching.
Before Ms. Griffith comments on the looks of anyone, she would be well reminded that there are these things called mirrors.
Speaking of Football…
The University of Nebraska got a new football coach- Scott Frost- who declared he is going to scour the social media accounts of potential recruits. So what can get a potential recruit disqualified in the eyes of Scott Frost? “Anything with guns” will prevent you from dressing in Cornhusker scarlet.
Speaking of Guns
The pompadour punk of Parkland, David Hogg, has written a book and was making the rounds in New York recently with his publicist. Nothing unusual about that; it’s what “authors” do. What they don’t do is go about New York with armed security which is what Hogg did. The irony is not lost on this writer.
This Just In: Two Things Have Been Decided for All Mankind for All of History
The United Nations is expected to release, through the World Health Organization, their new, improved updated list of mental diseases. Absent from that list- transgenderism. So that’s it folks! The UN has spoken.
Also, Hollywood producer Judd Apatow has declared an end to the debate over whether President Trump is a Nazi or not with this tweet:
He kidnapped children and commits acts of violence for political gain and to support his racist views. He admires violent dictators. Trump is a Nazi. The debate is over. Soon we will have proof he is a Nazi supported by the Russians.
So, there you have it from two distinguished commentators: being transgender is normal and Trump is a Nazi. Game over…end the debate!
While on the Subject of Nazis
The former advertising exec who brought you those infamous words, “Got Milk,” Donny Deutsch declared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe:
If we are working towards November, we can no longer say Trump’s the bad guy. If you vote for Trump, you’re the bad guy. If you vote for Trump, then you the voter, the voter, you, not Donald Trump, are standing at the border like Nazis.
Someone needs to first inform Donny Boy that Trump is not running this November. And now I am confused. Is it Trump or Trump voters who are the Nazis these days?
This Revelation Gives New Meaning to An Old Phrase
Allie Watkins a reporter, now for the New York Times, who apparently, while working for another outlet, was sleeping with Senate Security staffer James Wolfe- a man 30 years her senior. He was outed as the leaker on Capitol Hill about the never ending Trump-Russia investigation.
Now we find out from the New York Times itself that Ms. Watkins had “briefly dated another staff member of the Committee.” One wonders how many other dating partners she had which gives new meaning to an old phrase, “Media ____.” Hint: it’s five letters and starts with a “W.”
Whoopi Goldberg Wants Us to Stay Out of Her Lady Parts
In a heated debate over the Supreme Court and Anthony Kennedy’s replacement on that little watched gabfest known as The View, an unhinged Whoopi Goldberg went on an epic rant:
I don’t like this line that I, as a Democrat, or an independent or whatever is trying to take away anything from you. I’m trying to hold onto my personal rights so that you can have the rights you want. See? Because if you take mine, I feel like you’re the one with the problem. If you take my right away from me, to judge what I do for my family and my body, I got a little problem with that. You got a problem. You don’t want people to take your guns? Get out of my behind! Get out of my vagina! Get out![ Applause ]
Speaking on behalf on all humanity, no problem, Whoopi!! We shall willingly oblige.
That’s it for this week. Join me again next Tuesday for the ridiculous, the absurd, the silly and the hypocritical never-ending culture wars.
