Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has responded brilliantly to a clueless right wing troll’s attempt to belittle her by posting a video of her dancing with mates when she was a student.
The socialist politician has posted a short video in the hall outside her office, showing she’s here, she cares and she’ll dance whenever she wants to.
The troll has been laughed out of twitter town, proving that humour is still a useful weapon, wielded well.
Another congresswoman has courted a storm by using a Very Bad Word.
Rashida Tlaib believes that there is already enough evidence to begin the Trump impeachment process. She’s spoken and written about that belief regularly, but in a speech on Wednesday she rather wonderfully said
” … we’re gonna impeach the motherfucker.”
Trump is also fond of the word, so his response calling it “disgraceful” is fairly hypocritical, at best.
Congresswomen Ocasio-Cortez and Tlaib are new to their jobs. Both look like they’re going to enjoy themselves immensely.
Nancy Pelosi is no newbie. Frankly, I can’t see the new Speaker of the House swearing, or even dancing. However I can see her quietly driving the tiny fingered, tangerine faced buffoon in the White House mad.
The Democrats now chair the house committees and have the right to demand financial details from Trump any time they feel like it. They will dominate the legislative agenda for the next two years and, while it’s early days, the Mexican wall stand off is a solid show of muscle.
Trump’s wriggle room is fast diminishing. So it’s no surprise then that Pelosi’s first speech promised transparency.
It’s the one thing Trump fears most.
Still, maybe the Generals will save him.
It’d be ironic if Trump leaves the job like Nixon did, helicoptered out from the White House lawn. Perhaps with Tom Cruise in the pilot’s seat?
