Notorious RBG Packs for New Zealand

Canada must be getting crowded with Trump averse celebrities. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, told the NYT she’s headed for New Zealand if The Donald gets elected. She said, “I can’t imagine what our country would be like with Donald Trump as president.”

Trump called the Supreme Court Justice’s criticism “highly inappropriate“. The Times and Washington Post editorial pages agreed.

But Justice Ginsburg, aka The Notorious R.G.B., was on a roll. She told CNN Trump is “a faker”. She has also said it’s the Senate’s job to vote on Merrick Garland for the Supreme Court and she wants Citizens United overturned.

Packing for New Zealand

The WSJ  editorial page says it’s time for her to go.

Update:

Ginsburg apologizes:

“On reflection, my recent remarks in response to press inquiries were ill-advised and I regret making them,” Justice Ginsburg said in a statement on Thursday. “Judges should avoid commenting on a candidate for public office. In the future I will be more circumspect.”

Republicans Did It

 http://bokbluster.com/2016/06/17/Republicans did it/The NYT published an editorial Wednesday calling the Orlando shooting an act of hate. But the editors then said the precise motivation for the atrocity was unclear (Heather Wilhelm calls it America’s Hapless Terror Whodunit).

Republicans Did It

The editorial solved the mystery by finding that Republicans did it.

It blamed Republicans for creating a climate of hate for L.G.B.T. Americans that led to the violence in Orlando. No mention of a climate of Islamist hate for gays.

The shooter shouted allahu akbar and called 911 to proclaim he was acting for ISIS.

Progressives believe it when a man with a penis says he’s a woman but they don’t believe a man with a gun when he says he’s an Islamic Jihadist.

Paul Joseph Watson says, “The Left has chosen to protect the feelings of Muslims over the lives of gay people.”

 

Trump to Media: You’re Fired

Trump

The Donald brags about not spending money to win the nomination thanks to free media coverage. But apparently he’s had enough. He revoked the Washington Post’s press credentials because he didn’t like a headline.

“I am no fan of President Obama, but to show you how dishonest the phony Washington Post is, they wrote, ‘Donald Trump suggests President Obama was involved with Orlando shooting’ as their headline,” Trump wrote. “Sad!”

CNN says the headline (which was changed before Trump complained) came from an interview he did with Fox News.

“Look, we’re led by a man that either is not tough, not smart, or he’s got something else in mind,” Trump said of Obama. “And the something else in mind — you know, people can’t believe it. People cannot, they cannot believe that President Obama is acting the way he acts and can’t even mention the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’ There’s something going on. It’s inconceivable. There’s something going on.”

Last night he said,  “Obama is more angry at me than he was at the shooter.”

The Post isn’t alone. He’s also told The Des Moines Register, Univision, The Huffington Post, Politico, The Daily Beast, and Buzz Feed to buzz off.

Cincinnati King Kong

In the latest remake of King Kong, Harambe The Gorilla played the great ape role admirably and the four year old boy filled in nicely for Fay Wray, Jessica Lange, or Naomi Watts as you prefer.

The misunderstood gorilla  and bad old humans theme remains popular. But not everyone is all blubbery about Harambe’s demise. Steelers linebacker Vince Williams tweeted that he’s better  off dead than in Cincinnati.

Media Trump Loves to Hate

Donald Trump calls news shows to be interviewed. He never turns down a microphone. The media can’t resist him and now he’s the Republican presumptive nominee.

Media Trump Loves to Hate

But it’s media Trump loves to hate. He calls them dishonest and disgusting.  (He’s right if he’s talking about Katie Couric’s gun documentary.) Yesterday he called ABC reporter Tom Llamas a sleaze.

Charles Hurt thinks Trump’s a marketing genius. He turned yesterday’s press conference into a 40 minute free campaign commercial about money he raised for veterans.
