4. I wish Hillary would send out a tweet but

I think she will leave it to others.

He needs to be fired immediately.

5. IMO the joke is about himself taking the pill,

as he's the one about to drink water... ie he's about to get 'raped' by the 'queen'... har, har.

Stupid jokes aside, Tweety is a harsh Trump/GOP critic, voted for Hillary, and has always voiced support for the rights of women, PoC, immigrants, etc.

And someone like him - a rough-around-the-edges white guy from Philly - has the ability in getting through to the white working class types who voted for Trump - far more more than wonkish progressives like Rachel and Lawrence.

That's why I wonder why this is coming out now.. looks like we're being 'Stoned' again.

8. "That's why I wonder why this is coming out now.. looks like we're being 'Stoned' again."

What is that supposed to mean?

Even his wikipedia entry reports his 1999 sexual harassment scandal -

9. I don't think of Chris Matthews as one of "us".

His coverage of Al Gore's presidential campaign helped put GW Bush in the White House. His clearly articulated sexist outlook concerning HRC began in the 1990's and continued through 2017.

The Daily Howler (Bob Somerby, liberal watchdog of the "liberal" media) has been documenting the damage that Matthews has done for the last 20 years. Here's one of his columns from 2014.
