Ms. Trump, an unpaid adviser to her father, caused backlash this weekend after she took a seat on his behalf during a working session Saturday morning in Hamburg. Mr. Trump said he had asked his daughter to hold the seat while he attended meetings, calling the practice “very standard.”
Ms. Walsh, however, took issue with Ms. Trump wearing a “girlie” dress during the controversial moment, which was a pale pink with large bows on the sleeves.
“I don’t mean to sound sexist, it can be dangerous to comment on what women wear, but the fact that she sat in for her father in a dress that was so incredibly ornamental was such a contradiction in terms,” Ms. Walsh told MSNBC host Thomas Roberts on Sunday, in remarks first flagged by Newsbusters.
“And I think that what we see is that in patriarchal, authoritarian societies, daughters have great value — they are property,” she said. “And the message that she is sending about her own value, about her place in the White House, and about the place of women in this administration, I think, are really, pretty frightening.”
You simply cannot parody these moonbats any more. They revel in their idiocy, wearing it like a badge of honor.
Soak up the falsehoods (controlling our borders is somehow, well, you know, evil!) Soak up the arrogance (these goofs really think they are the best and brightest.) Soak up the fear mongering (Republicans are going to kill 22 million people if they repeal Obamacare!) Yes, 22 million!
This video answers some important questions.
Yes, Joan Walsh is as out of touch with reality as ever. As Southern ladies might say, “Bless her heart”.
Yes, these people are as obsessed with race as ever. Note that Joan Walsh references “really good research” yet gives no sources. I suppose if she dreams it it is so. If stupidity were a competitive sport, Joan Walsh would have more rings that Tom Brady and Michael Jordan combined!
Yes, MSNBS is as bad as ever, if not worse. MNSNBS remains the Tree of Low-Hanging Blogging Fruit!
And yes, Meat Head is still Meat Head. Does Rob Reiner even know what planet he is on?
It is a given that you cannot be too bright to write for Salon ( I read it so you don’t have to), but Joan Walsh is to stupidity what Godzilla is to Sci-Fi monsters! Writing about Toya Graham, the Baltimore mom who gave her son a hard lesson about joining in riots, Walsh goes off on a race baiting tangent aimed at those damned White people!
“I don’t. I don’t,” Graham told CBS “This Morning” on Wednesday. “My intention was just to get my son and have him be safe.” Later in the interview, Graham confesses, “I just lost it.
Her moment of losing it made her a hero to much of white America – and not just to the right. Coast to coast, the media is hyping Graham as “Hero Mom” and her on-camera beating as “Tough Love.” It’s not just Fox News or the “New York Post,” whose tabloid“Send in the Moms” front page this time reflects rather than rebukes the mainstream media. And that’s heartbreaking.
Heartbreaking? Really? A parent acting like a parent gives poor Joan Walsh the vapors. But, here is something Joan Walsh should know. MOST Americans support what Graham did. Walsh cannot comprehend that of course, because she does not think like most Americans, Walsh lives in a Leftist bubble where reality is not welcome.
The debate over the moment Graham says she “lost it” is complex. There’s a parallel black debate going on that, as always when it comes to racial issues, is richer and more nuanced.
What? Black debate over racism is more nuanced and richer than White debate over racism? To believe that, Walsh would have to be a racist who assumes every Black person says the same thing about racism. Of course, Walsh does believe that Blacks are incapable of anything but group think, and yes, that makes Joan Walsh a racist!
But anyone white who’s applauding Graham’s moment of desperation, along with the white media figures who are hyping her “heroism,” is essentially justifying police brutality, and saying the only way to control black kids is to beat the shit out of them.
Huh? Now parents using corporal punishment is just like police brutality? Parents who would restrain their teen from joining a riot are just like an out of control cop now? Joan is really digging in the pit of Inanity here, and she is digging as fast as she can
Wait Walsh started off by saying “White America” was applauding Graham, now she admits that many Blacks are agreeing with Whitey?
Whether they applaud or critique Graham’s corporal punishment, most black people debating the issue acknowledge that the desperate public beating came from centuries of black parents knowing they have to discipline their children harshly, or else white society will do it for them – and they may not survive it
Desperate public beating? It looked like a mom trying to keep her son safe to me, and to most normal people. But, of course Salon is not just your normal awful site, and Walsh is not just a normal idiot so….. And I think Walsh might want to re-think her claim about “centuries of Black parents”. Good grief!
Apparently, the NRA isn’t the only one to blame for the Ebola crisis. Salon editor and professional troll Joan Walsh wonders if Republican Texas Governor Rick Perrydoesn’t share some of the blame, at least when it comes to the death of victim Thomas Eric Duncan.
It’s probably no accident, either, that it happened in Rick Perry’s Texas. More than 1.5 million Texans, with a median income of $833, are going uninsured because Perry rejected Medicaid funding. Medicaid wouldn’t have helped Duncan, but it might help someone exposed to him. Right now Youngor Jallah, the woman who got Duncan to the hospital when his symptoms worsened, says she doesn’t have Medicaid or any health insurance.
So, let us follow the “logic” here. Rick Perry rejected Medicaid funding, and the federal string attached, so he is to blame for Duncan’s death. Well, except that he isn’t because Duncan DID receive medical care, but someone else might NOT get care because Rick Perry is evil or something. Walsh also forgets that everyone Duncan might have infected is receiving medial treatment and is being monitored. But, again, none of those facts matter right Joan? And they do not matter because Rick Perry is “evil” right Joan?
Watching Fox’s Bill O’Reilly interview President Obama before the Super Bowl last night, you could find evidence for Rich’s view. Obama seemed calm and sane, while O’Reilly appeared unmoored from reality, like a patient who’d gotten a day pass from a sanitarium where delusional convalescents babble about Benghazi and the IRS and the Obamacare website until someone comes and puts them to bed.
Actually, if you delete the references to Benghazi and the IRS, you would say Joan Walsh, possibly the world’s biggest Obamabot, is describing herself. Now, I am not implying here that Walsh is crazy, I don’t have to, she says that every time she speaks on MSNBS or writes at Salon. Hell Joan Walsh cannot order a pizza without seeing something racist about it. But enough about Joan Walsh’s mental instability, let’s focus on her campaign to be the most useful idiot ever
It’s simply stunning: Longtime Republican imagemaker Ailes figured out how to make sure that our twice-elected Democratic president, backed by a coalition that represents an emerging, multiracial America, must periodically be checked and hopefully shamed by a representative of the angry right-wing white male minority that barely considers him a legitimate leader.
I must ask here. Does Joan Walsh not realize Obama could say no to an interview with O’Reilly? Does she also not realize that O-Reilly is not a right-winger? I know silly questions those two are. Joan Walsh likely does not know what day of the week it is. I mean her perpetual Obamagasms likely cause her to forget inconvenient details. Like that Obama lies, A LOT! And that he lies A LOT about EVERYTHING!
Maybe the worst part was when O’Reilly asked a viewer’s question: “Why do you feel it’s necessary to fundamentally transform the nation that has afforded you so much opportunity?” O’Reilly presumably got lots of suggestions from viewers, and I’m sure many were uglier than that. But what does it mean that that’s the question he chose?
Oh yes, Joan is just sure that anyone opposed to Dear Leader is a RAAAAACIST! I mean how dare anyone actually question Obama’s authority and wisdom right Joan?
It means, again, that O’Reilly and Ailes and their viewers see this president as unqualified and ungrateful, an affirmative action baby who won’t thank us for all we’ve done for him and his cohort. The question was, of course, deeply condescending and borderline racist. Obama has been afforded “so much opportunity”? What about O’Reilly, who pretends he’s a working-class son of Levittown, Long Island, when he’s actually the kid of an accountant who grew up in Westbury and went to private high school and university?
Oh no! Not borderline RAAAAACIST! Not that! Actually, Joan Walsh if she knew anything, excuse me while I laugh at the idea that any rational thought ever entered Walsh’s mind, she would know that O’Reilly HAS called himself fortunate to be an American. Most Americans would say that of themselves. Joan Walsh might know that if she ever bothered to talk to regular Americans. But, of course, elites like Joan Walsh cannot be bothered with the peons. The question to Obama was a very good one. I would have phrased it like this “Mr. President, why do wish to transform a country that is the very best in the world?
This notion that an older generation of white people worked hard for everything they achieved, while a younger generation of folks like Barack Obama had their success handed to them, is a staple of the white backlash that Ailes has been channeling since he helped elect Richard Nixon in 1968. Having just finished Gabriel Sherman’s Ailes biography, “The Loudest Voice in the Room,” I watched the O’Reilly interview with the sinking feeling that our nation, while fortunate in so many ways, has been uniquely challenged in this crucial time: As we make the transition to a fully multiracial democracy, our leading cable news network is headed by a man who has spent his entire career channeling his own paranoia and resentment and weird racial ideas. Oh, and sexism.
This last paragraph above is absolutely intellectually vacuous, just like Joan Walsh. She presupposes the intent of, and yes Joan prejudges everyone who might ask such a question while at the same time bemoaning their bigotry. If Joan wants to see an actual bigot, she should look in a mirror.
As for the rest of that paragraph, and indeed the rest of the column, Joan simply uses her “pen” to descend deeper into her Leftist obsessed idiocy where reality is denied, and where unicorns roam free passing out free health care, and the government tucks us all in at night.
I will add this for my readers. From now on I will no longer say someone is Jimmy Carter level stupid. Oh no, from now on, they will be mocked as Joan Walsh level stupid!
And sorry if I’m all out of sympathy for this #p2 POS.
Turns out she’s come under heavy fire on the left for her objectively stupid defense of the administration’s #ObamaCare rollout debacle. And amazingly, it’s juice-box hero Ezra Klein who comes out as the voice of reason in all of this. Clue to Joan: It’s not “just a glitch” and giving it “more time” won’t solve a thing. Ezra’s right. ObamaCare’s blown, down deep inside, to the “back end” and beyond. Frankly, it sucks donkey balls, and so does Joan Walsh, the dumb [four-letter word here].
Bitter partisanship has left this woman a hulking, steaming pile of radioactive filth. She just hates. No amount of Obama/Democrat failure will shake her from what is, for all intents and purposes, a psychotic obsession with the “evil” right. Shoot, the father of Trig-trutherism sounds positively subdued compared to the unhinged Salon hate-monger. See the Dish, “Epistemic Openness Watch“:
WOW! Douglas nails it perfectly. Walsh is out of her mind with hatred for anyone who dares disagree with her delusional devotion to Obammunism.
Oh who could ever imagine the outrage, hurt, hyperbole, and massive outbreaks of Offendeditis, and Racial Obsession Syndrome. All over a, excuse my language, a fucking rodeo clown acting like a, wait for it, a fucking rodeo clown? All of this because a rodeo clown put on an Obama mask? This is all it takes these days to spur the Left, and some spineless Republicans to start whining and crying about RAAAAACISM? We have not only lost our minds, we have lost our balls, spine, and collective sense of humor as a nation. The NAACP naturally, did not lose a second before trying to race pimp “Clown Gate”. They are calling for the Gestapo to march that evil rodeo clown off to a concentration camp for making fun of Dear Leader.
On Tuesday, the Missouri State National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) issued a statement asking for federal involvement in the case of a rodeo clown who wore an Obama mask and then asked the crowd if they’d like to see Obama run down by a bull. “The activities at the Missouri State Fair targeting and inciting violence against our President are serious and warrant a full review by both the Secret Service and the Justice Department,” said State President Mary Ratliff. “Incidents involving individuals acting out with extreme violent behavior in movie theaters, schools, churches, political appearances, and outdoor events in general speaks volume to the irresponsible behavior of all the parties involved with the incendiary events at the Missouri State Fair.”
Targeting the president? Who did that?. No one incited any violence towards anybody, and Mary Ratliff, Race Pimp, damn well knows it. As to this part of her statement, all I can say is WTF woman? What are you prattling on about? Seriously, this buffoon is babbling about extreme violent behavior in churches and movie theaters?
“Incidents involving individuals acting out with extreme violent behavior in movie theaters, schools, churches, political appearances, and outdoor events in general speaks volume to the irresponsible behavior of all the parties involved with the incendiary events at the Missouri State Fair.
Good Grief is she serious? Of course she is, she is just doing her part to keep racial tensions high so the donations keep coming in, Heaven forbid this babbling idiot have to get a real job! So, do not waste your time emailing Mary, or the Missouri NAACP, they will just call you racist and might even write Eric Holder to probe you for being a dangerous hate monger. Worse yet, a MSNBS host might make fun of you, or Joan Walsh might write something negative about you at Salon which would not be too bad since no one watches MSNBS or reads Salon. They might get the NSA to spy on you, or they might even ask Eric Holder to get those Mexican cartels he armed to come after you. Hell , they might even get Trayvon Martin’s parents to accuse you of helping Zimmerman gun down their angelic son. Of course, that would be totally false, but that does not seem to matter to them, or anyone on the Left. Hell, if you have a son, who is, say 13, they might even coax a few thugs to beat him down on a school bus and then some douche nozzle on MSNBS to say your kid deserved it because he was a snitch. And of course if ANY of those things were to happen you would deserve it because, RAAAAACISM!
I’m reaching out to you as a friend. I know you must be deeply hurting after what happened at the Missouri State Fair. Sure, you probably try to avoid watching the news while you’re on vacation, but I’m sure the pilot who airlifted your dog to your rental mansion in Martha’s Vineyard probably caught you up to speed (that guy is such a chatterbox). Your jaw must have hit the floor when you heard the news: A rodeo clown in Missouri poked fun at you. Yeah, I know, almost impossible to believe. The gall! The gumption! The racism! Don’t worry, the entire country erupted in outrage, Democrats and Republicans issued statements of condemnation, and now the offending clown has been banned for life from the Missouri State Fair. There will likely be “action taken” against the Missouri Rodeo Clown Association, and I do hope justice is visited upon them swiftly. I think we’re all a little sick of the Missouri Rodeo Clown Association causing trouble. It’s something new every week with those freakin’ guys.
But all of this is of no consolation. The fact is, a rodeo clown in Missouri made fun of you. Nothing can ever ease the pain he has caused. This sort of crass lampooning of public officials has never happened at a rodeo until now, and I know that because a bunch of people who have never been within 150 miles of a rodeo said so. And then — worse still — the crowd erupted in applause at the spectacle of a guy in an Obama mask being chased by a rampaging bull. Racists, the lot of ‘em! I mean, Bush never got this sort of treatment. Nobody ever mocked or satirized him. No crude jokes were told about him. Nobody ever wished violence or death upon him. Ever. You know why? Because he’s white. White presidents always get treated nicely, especially white Republicans. Just ask Lincoln. The whole country agreed for over two centuries that we don’t ever insult presidents, then you get into office and all of a sudden every day is Pick on the President Day. Outrageous!
Go read the rest, it is great satire, and will likely get Walsh labelled a RAAAAACIST! And all over a fucking rodeo clown! You know, all of this makes me want to say FTL, which is short for FUCK THE LEFT! Which, of course, makes me a, well, you know……….
I think Matthews and his cohorts here, Joan Walsh, and David Corn really should head up Hillary 2016. Let these Left Wing fruitcakes be the “brains” and faces of her campaign
Matthews replied, “If you’re watching, Madam Secretary, all three of us have brilliant ideas. All of us have great ideas. And I especially put myself in that group with Joan and David. We know how to do this, we’ll get you in there.”
Although there may have been a little tongue in Matthews’ cheek, everyone watching knew full well that he meant it, and that his mission in the next 44 months – as well as that of likely every MSNBC contributor and guest – is to get Clinton in the White House.
Joan Walsh, David Corn, and Crazy legs Matthews have “brilliant ideas”? More like delusions of competence. These three could not think their way out of a wet paper bag.
Joan Walsh on Sunday said former USDA official Shirley Sherrod is allowed to say anything she wants about racism — including calling Fox News and Andrew Breitbart racist — because her father was killed by a white man.
Discussing last week’s controversy on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” Salon’s Editor-in-Chief actually claimed, “The woman’s father was murdered by a white farmer, and there were witnesses, and the white justice system never found the murderer guilty.”
“She’s entitled to talk about race any way she wants to.”
Andrew Breitbart isn’t fit to spit-shine the shoes of civil rights hero and Congressman John Lewis. It’s ludicrous to think that the right-wing bully believed he had the moral or political standing to call Lewis a liar, after Lewis and two other black congressmen reported they were called “nigger” by tea partiers during the healthcare reform vote March 20. Lewis’s word on the confrontation is good enough for me.
What about personality-free facts? Videos shot on the spot? What about the fact that Breitbart backs up his claims with money? What about the fact that Breitbart, while arguably abrasive, as truth can be at times, has a sterling reputation?
Now comes news that Breitbart is the liar – or at least the misleader. Video he’s been peddling to “prove” the congressmen were not called the N-word was actually after the slurs occurred. As a friend notes, “It’s like running video of the Twin Towers on 9/10 to prove 9/11 didn’t happen.” Of course the videos Breitbart peddled to claim ACORN helped a supposed pimp and prostitute set up a child-prostitution ring have also been found misleading, at best. The California Attorney General’s review said they were “severely edited” and in fact “showed no violation of the law.” New York authorities concluded the same thing.
Was the video from after the alleged incident? You must have a hard timestamp for the purported event yourself to back up this claim of time shenanigans, Walsh. Why not trot out some facts to back up your claim? Could there be a total lack of facts on your side of the argument?
Go read it all, and enjoy the smackdown.
