Ann Coulter Turns on ‘Disloyal Actual Retard’ Trump in Twitter Rant

Ann Coulter went on an early Sunday morning Twitter tear, calling President Donald Trump “the most disloyal actual retard that has ever set foot in the Oval Office.”

The far-right media pundit and former Trump defender was triggered by the president’s Friday tweet in which he called for Alabama voters to “not trust Jeff Sessions” and instead put their support behind Sessions’ Republican Senate seat challenger, football coach Tommy Tuberville.

Group buys Alabama abortion clinic to keep it from closing (AP)

Group buys Alabama abortion clinic to keep it from closing

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Conservative lawmakers in Alabama last year tried to enact the nation's most stringent abortion ban, but the attempt to outlaw the procedure may have had one ironic twist.

An Alabama-based abortion rights group used a flood of donations that poured in from across the country after the ban to purchase the state’s busiest abortion clinic to ensure it stays open.

Yellowhammer Fund — a group founded to help low-income women access abortion — announced the purchase of West Alabama Women’s Center on Friday, the one-year anniversary of the passage of the Alabama ban.

“I said this a year ago. What they didn’t anticipate they would do is help us increase abortion access in Alabama,” said Amanda Reyes, executive director of Yellowhammer Fund.

Reyes said the flood of donations helped the group purchase the clinic from the owner who was looking to retire.

How Michelle Obama changed the dress code for White House butlers ... (makes me love her even more)

How Michelle Obama changed the dress code for White House butlers because she didn't want Malia and Sasha growing up thinking 'African American men serve them in tuxedos'

* Michelle Obama changed the White House dress codes for butlers and also insisted her daughters clean their own rooms and not let maids do it

* The former First Lady said the tuxedos sent the wrong message to Malia and Sasha, who were 10 and seven years old when they moved into the White House

* Obama, 54, said: 'The truth was that some of those men were uncles... Girls would have play dates and that just doesn't even look right to me'

* Obama said that she also 'begged' the maids to let the girls clean their own rooms because they wouldn't live in the White House forever

* She told the housekeepers: 'I'm not raising a girl who doesn't know how to make their own bed!'


From a usually unfriendly source, but I think they are being pretty fair this time.

I wonder did Trump change it back?

Under Lockdown, Parents Are Discovering Their Children Are LGBT And Dumping Them On The Street

Under Lockdown, Parents Are Discovering Their Children Are LGBT And Dumping Them On The Street

LGBT parents are suffering homophobic and transphobic abuse from their own children during the lockdown, a charity has revealed — while young LGBT people are being thrown out onto the street by parents who discover their child’s sexuality or gender identity.

While homelessness caused by anti-LGBT rejection is not new, the context within this pandemic is, and so too is abuse from children directed at their own LGBT parents.

Teenagers who have never said such things before are now “lashing out” with hateful and abusive comments, Rachel Ellis from the LGBT Foundation told BuzzFeed News. “They’re trapped in the house, cooped up, and haven’t got anyone to let their frustrations out on except their parents,” she said.

Some parents, who have already experienced significant prejudice outside the home, are now blaming themselves for what is happening within it — unable to comprehend why. Despite years of casework, Ellis had never encountered this phenomenon before the lockdown. But, she said, “it’s something I’m seeing more and more in the past month”.

And that is just the start.


Somehow I think we're not headed back to "normal" later.

What next for Trump? Starts with the assumption that Trump loses in November.

The default would be he goes back to his "normal" life of unimaginable privilege.

Do you think it will play that way? I'm guessing not.

Seems like a lot of scripts not related to gathering census data.

Am I a paranoid? Because I feel like a paranoid.

Here's a closer look.

Speaking with forked tongue yet again are we?

Coronavirus as an excuse for fucking over the Injuns some more.

I didn't expect it, but only because I didn't think about it.

A general practitioner of screwballery

For a while he toned it down a little to promote Trump, but he's back to his old self.
