Lauren Boebert – oh my. Well, she got kicked out of a theater for vaping, taking selfies in the middle of the performance, and disturbing people around her by singing. At least, that’s what the theater initially said. Boebert was outraged, of course. She said she got kicked out for laughing and dancing. She said the vaping was from a smoke machine – not her. Then they showed the tape – the security footage. There was Lauren blowing smoke from a vaping device.
She also played the, “Do you know who I am?” card. I have done that too. It always gets the same result, except once. “No.” The exception being when I gave my card to someone who studied it for some thirty seconds and said, “I’ve heard of you.” My instantaneous reactive thought was, “No, you haven’t!” But I kept my mouth shut.
Apparently, the reasons above weren’t the real reason she was booted. Maybe, it contributed, but the real reason was Boebert and her “date” were groping each other. There was nothing subtle about it. So aside from the vaping, the loud singing, the flashing camera light, they were trying to have hand sex – I guess that’s what you’d call it. Groping? Egads, get a room you two. Oh yes the theater released some more security footage showing their “acitivity”. So the theater tried to give her an excuse. She wasn’t bright enough to understand so they said, “Okay. Take a look at this.”
Then Lauren made a “I’m really sorry” boo-hoo, that’s not the person I am and the voters deserve better statement.
In other news Kristen Welker had her first weekend at the desk of Meet the Press. She had an interview with Donald Trump. She tried to keep him focused on her question. She tried. He wandered around verbally. Same old stuff. Several times he said Democrats want to kill babies after they are born. Welker had enough and replied, “No Democrat says that.” For a few instances Trump actually stopped. Temporarily rocked back on his heels. He kind of shrugged. Then it was right back to one complaint or another, or an outlandish lie. Things like how great his presidency was. How he could solve the Ukraine war in a day.
His solution to everything was to get all the pricipals in a room and “negotiate.”
Vague ovrblown promises and pronouncements, nothing concrete. I wouldn’t call it trying to nail jello to the wall, but rather having the jello solution thrown in liquid form and running down the wall.
Update from Tuesday Sept 20 (I didn’t finish Monday’s screed until Tuesday)
Janet Yellin was on a morning show. She was asked what about this? And what about that? All dealing with the economy. She is brief, specific and to the point. While the Wall Street folks and the Repubicans are going on and on about recession she clamly points to the data. Could it be better? Yeah, of course, but it’s pretty good right now. Especially, when you compare it to other times it’s really damn good.
Last night, Peter Hotez was on talking about his new book, “The Deadly Rise of Anti-Science.” He pointed to the rise of anti-vaccine rhetoric. This was not random he points out. It was planned and orchestrated. It started at CPAC 2021. They had a number of anti-vac folks speak. The theme being that the government was going to force you to get the vaccine, and then they’d come for your bibles and your guns. This idea was picked up by Marjorie Taylor-Greene, Ron Johnson, and Rand Paul in Congress and it was amplied every night on Fox by Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and others.
The result said Hotez was that 200,000 people died that didn’t have to. They were mainly in conservative states and many in the south.
Other than drug dealers pushing fentanyl, who else kills willfully their own people? The Republican party and anti-vaccers.
Not only are people being told lies about the vaccines, but the politicians like Greene are targeting the very scientists trying to save us, calling them names and saying they are employing brown-shirt fascist tactics. WTF?
People like Trump, Greene, Boebert, Hannity, and Ingraham are dangerous, because they not only willing lie, they have no soul.
Joe the Plumber died, pancreatic cancer. He wasn’t really a plumber. He didn’t have his own license, He kind of worked under someone else who had a license, and that wasn’t really legal. But hey so what? Right? Freedom. Hopefully, your toilet won’t leak but maybe he wtched a good YouTube videio and kinda knows what to do?
No rules. Except abortion, then we gotta get in there and F with people. Time has an article about the 13 year old girl in Mississippi who had a baby. The girl starts 7th grade. She was raped. Way to go Mississippi. What an opportunity.
OMG. I didn’t think it could get any stupider, but I was wrong. Boebert has broken off with her date at the theater. She checked his party affiliation and he’s a democrat. That’s the problem. Democrats are known fondler – is that it? OMG.
