Adultery Is OK If You Are Republican

Trump just merely refined that - Adultery Is OK If You Bang A Porn Star

As one might suspect, Wohl's "press conference" was shoddy, embarrassing, and easily debunked, and even if it were true, it just makes Warren sound cool.

His 25-year old Marine, "Kevin Whelly", provided a written statement that reads like it was written by someone who's never kissed a girl. His Twitter profile identifies him as part of the "united states marine corp" (sic), and his Instagram profile contradicts his claim that he got a scar on his back from Warren whipping him. (Did I mention she's supposedly a domme? Yep, Liz is kinky.) He also claims they met through a site called "COWBOYS4ANGELS", which is literally ripped off from a Showtime reality show about male prostitutes, and that she told him that all the lady Congressmen have "studs" servicing them at Congressional retreats.

Wohl clearly thinks that "fake news" actually works the way Trump claims it does; all you have to do is make an allegation and everyone immediately and incredulously believes it and shames the "guilty" party into oblivion.

I hope this poor bastard that they got for this show was paid enough to play pretend boyfriend of Warren. Because he will not be able to show his face around his friends for......... ever.

The ads write themselves:

"While Donald Trump gives aid & comfort to America's enemies, E Warren gives aid & comfort to American troops"

Or...

"Beth... still smokin', after all these years."

Or, perhaps...

"What Trump is doing to the country, Warren is doing to this young man!"

"You think Melania is a trophy? Look what I've got!"

Wohl's attempted this same stunt before against Mueller and Pete Buttigieg, as well as trying to start a birther CT against Kamala Harris and peddling the "Ilhan Omar married her brother" lie.

He's a rich idiot who doesn't understand how the media works.

Warren of course didn't dignify this idiocy with a direct response, but did use a tweet on another topic to obliquely but unmistakably troll Dumb and Dumber:

I gently disregarded begbert2’s caveat, just for a little fun — and because I do like the word, for this purpose. But I won’t overdo it —like SnowboarderBo (I love that guy) after — ever since — those first few weeks, I’ll throw it into quarry only occasionally.

Aha! So she IS a cougar!

In other stupid news, a minor one but an odd one: one of my Trumper relations posted a meme stating "82% of Trump supporters would vote for Donald Trump for President again!" I had to point out that the implication of this was that 18% of people who identify as "Trump supporters" nevertheless won't for Trump in 2020. And that this does not reflect well on Trump.

(There's no cite for this number so I assume it's entirely manufactured, but still - an own goal).

I just idly wonder if the guy really is a Marine; if not, I would think the Corps would issue a denial in 'proper terms'. shortly. If he is, I suspect his command structure will be very unhappy with him and he'll be hearing about it from various Captains, Majors and Colonels in due course.

If he is a Marine, I'm guessing it is in the sense of "once a Marine, always a Marine". Surely he is no longer active duty - my understanding is that the Marines are the most selective service so that hopefully nobody quite that clueless got in and stayed in.

More debunking of Wohl's latest ridiculous stunt from, of all places, Rolling Stone:

Elizabeth Warren Accuser ‘Not Up to Caliber’ to Work For Gigolo Agency
According to the owner of Cowboys4Angels, the Jacob Wohl-fueled conspiracy is — as expected — all lies

Quote:
On Thursday afternoon, professional far-right trolls Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman held a “press conference” featuring what they promised to be explosive allegations regarding Sen. Elizabeth Warren. In reality, it was a sparsely attended melange of journalists looking for Twitter fodder congregated outside a garage, with a sign saying “Elizabeth Warren: Cougar?” The completely made-up claims were as follows: The improbably named Kelvin Whelly, a former Marine, claimed that last year, Warren had hired him via the male escort agency Cowboys4Angels and engaged in a steamy extramarital affair with him, involving, among other things, lite BDSM and threesomes with busty blondes. A printout distributed during the gathering detailed the allegations, which read like erotica written by a 13-year-old who had seen Fifty Shades of Grey once, and didn’t really get it.

Because Wohl is a felon who has openly admitted to lying to promote President Donald Trump, no one took the claims seriously, and people on Twitter immediately started taking them apart. There was, however, one correct fact contained therein: Cowboys4Angels is, in fact, a real “elite male companion” agency, which is best known for being featured on the Showtime series Gigolos.

To be clear, the story was nonsense, likely culled from Skinemax plotlines and airport bookstore paperbacks bought by middle-aged health care company consultants traveling to Rochester on business. (The accuser also seemed to not quite buy the act, as he reportedly kept laughing while trying to read his statement.) But the Cowboys4Angels namedrop indicated that at the very least, in terms of their knowledge of softcore premium cable series, Wohl and Burkman had done their homework.

But the question remained: Was Whelly actually employed at Cowboys4Angels, and did Wohl team up with the agency as part of an elaborate PR grab? Garren James, the owner and CEO of Cowboys4Angels, says no.

“We went through and searched all of our employment requests and all our contacts because we save the names. The guy never even applied to be at our agency,” he tells Rolling Stone.

But perhaps Whelly provided his services at Cowboys4Angels under another name? After seeing Whelly’s (again, bogus) Instagram, James stuck to his guns. “This guy never worked for me. I would never even hire that guy,” he says, adding that Whelly is “not up to caliber to work at our agency.”

When asked if Warren, one of the frontrunners of the Democratic presidential primary had ever procured the services of his agency, James again said no. “I have many other high-profile clients that I would never reveal, but she’s not one of them,” he says.

There you have it. Good thing the Elizabeth Warren campaign has a good sense of humor about it.

At an AOC Town Hall the other night, a woman in the audience stood up and started ranting about climate change, saying we need to bomb Russia to cut the global population, and we are going to need to start eating babies. AOC calmly tried to defuse her, but Republicans are trying to point to the woman as how crazy Democrats are.
Turns out it was a staged stunt from the Lyndon LaRouche people.

I just watched the press conference on Splinter and ohmygod that is some funny stuff. A reporter asked WHelly what unit he was in and he said "13, from Hawaii, you can look it up on Wikipedia." I laughed so much at that line because if you asked me what unit I was in I would never say "528 in Turkey" or "112 in North Carolina," it just sounds so stupid. Evidently, he was in the Marines though, but per the below link he didn't deploy into combat:

A protester who called for Americans to 'eat the babies' to fight climate change at AOC's town hall was revealed as a member of a pro-Trump fringe group
...
President Donald Trump retweeted a video of the incident and called Ocasio-Cortez a "Wack Job." The president's eldest son tweeted that the woman "seems like a normal AOC supporter to me."
...
Right-wing media outlets and online provocateurs, including Breitbart, The Daily Wire, and the activist Candace Owens, quickly jumped on the exchange, accusing Ocasio-Cortez of condoning the woman's calls to "eat babies."

The Fox News host Tucker Carlson said it was "pretty revealing" that Ocasio-Cortez didn't reject the woman's comments.

Steve Bannon (remember him?) warns us that things are going to hell:
Quote:
"The anti-patriarchy movement is going to undo ten thousand years of recorded history," Green quoted Bannon as saying. "You watch. The time has come. Women are gonna take charge of society. And they couldn't juxtapose a better villain than Trump. He is the patriarch."
Bolding added.

He's right, though. Trump *is* the patriarch. That's precisely why patriarchy is abhorrent.

You may have your wires ever so slightly crossed, here. In Fawlty Towers, after a rude American guest* has threatened to "bust his ass", John Cleese says "everything's bottoms, isn't it?" In It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, Terry-Thomas lectures Milton Berle about Americans' infantile preoccupation with bosoms.


* Played brilliantly by Bruce Boa. I looked him up on IMDb once and was surprised at the movies I'd seen him in without ever recognizing him.

Oh my god, you’re absolutely correct. Not only did I confuse John Cleese with Terry-Thomas, but I mixed up tits and ass. Embarrassed throat clearing and apologies to everyone.

"Dollars are the real polls" should be the slogan for the GOP.

Ron Johnson goes on Meet the Press, and even Chuck Todd has had enough of Republican obfuscation.

Bannon just desperately says things that he thinks will make him seem relevant, which is isn't. That article was a while ago, and I bet he's saying something else by now.

One of those "testosterone booster supplement" purveyors ought to get the rights to a normal Chuck Todd show and this performance and make a commercial implying that they are "BEFORE" and "AFTER" snapshots.
