House GOP did not tell Raskin to remove head covering

This is just one reason that Twitter Sucks. The lie spreads quickly.

In a Tuesday tweet, Punchbowl News reporter Heather Caygle wrote that Raskin had received a standing ovation in a House Democratic Caucus meeting after saying he’d push back on Republican efforts to make him remove his headwear. “And I will make them take off their toupees,” Caygle quoted Raskin as saying.

Jacob Wilson, a spokesperson for Raskin, told the AP in an email that Raskin “was responding lightheartedly to a hypothetical question from a colleague” at the caucus meeting. According to Caygle’s tweet, he was asked “what he would do if Republicans made him take off his headwear on the House floor.”

Caygle clarified in a follow-up tweet that Raskin said no House Republicans have spoken to him about hat rules. Caygle declined further comment when reached by email. Wilson said the Democrat “has received nothing but support and encouragement from all of his colleagues and leaders on both sides of the aisle.”

Reminder, tomorrow is the day that a judge will sentence Insurrectionist Sick Fucks Khater & Tanois

Julian Khater and George Tanois are scheduled to be sentenced. They are the sick bastards who are caught on film in a chemical attack on USCP Officer Brian Sicknick hours before his collapse and soon there after death. Because of the DC Medical Examiners finding (which makes no sense to me but I am not a doctor) they were not charged with murder, but their actions led to the death of a healthy 42 year old police officer.

Hopefully the Judge hits them with the longest sentence he can and sends a message that it not ok to attack police officers defending American Democracy. These stains on American Democracy came to the Capitol intending to attack, they did and Brian is now dead.

I hope they get the longest sentence possible and that their time in jail breaks them. No matter what, Officer Sicknick is not coming back. His family is now deprived of his company and love forever.

Some day they will rot in hell, but until then, I hope they rot in jail.

This could be the white puff of smoke.

This is the first vote with a real chance of electing a speaker.

Why I love this President

His tweet after a tough loss for a team of young men.

Fellas you made us proud. We get up and keep going.

Here is to a bright future and 2026 back here at home.


If Trump was still in office we would have seen something like “I don’t like losers”

just a reminder for that dumb fuck Susan Sarandon

Donald Trump told Chris Matthews that "there should be some kind of punishment for women who had abortions". Looks Like Trump got what he wanted.

I hope you realize how short sided and ignorant are for saying " Fear of Donald Trump is not enough for me to support Clinton, with her record of corruption."

Your stupidity helped Trump ruin the lives of American women.

Officer Edward's is a hero

There were many hero’s that day. She is clearly one. Injured and back in the fight multiple times. She is a credit to her training, her department, her self. She has much to be proud of. Even when not in the fight, she was trying to help others. My heart broke when she talked of looking at Brian Sicknick, pale from a chemical attack. He was murdered in an insurrection. How the DC Medical Examiner declared his death less than 24 hours later natural causes escapes reality.

Officer Edward’s, you are a HERO. Thank You!

Would it shock anyone here to learn that 5 of the top 10 deadliest mass shootings

We’re committed in Texas. Governor Abbott was right, with 5 of the 10 deadliest shootings happening in his state, the clear answer is more guns. Maybe with more guns they will be able to take all 10 slots.

Only a fucking idiot would come to the conclusion that more guns are needed.

All hat and no balls or brain power.
