: Y’all see Lindsey Graham get fucked up by an Amazon union organizer? More: CNN
: Karl Racine is D.C.’s attorney general. He has talked very tough for very long about how he was going to hold Trump accountable for the fundraising scam he pulled around his nomination. The reality? He let Trump off the hook for $750,000 and no admission of guilt. So the next time Karl talks tough, we’ll know he’s full of shit. More: Law and Crime
: We’re just so glad that Russia has apologized to Israel. Can y’all think of anything else those murdering scumbags should apologize for? More: Washington Post
: Shell made a record $9.1 billion in the first quarter. That’s not inflation. That’s them stealing from us. More: New York Times
Note 20: Alrighty, you gorgeous patriotic lovelies, let’s shimmy our fine asses on over to the news section. This week fucking blew. There ain’t not sugarcoating it. So if you can unplug and practice some self-care, please do. And if you’re gonna hit the streets instead, please be careful. We love y’all, and we’re not going anywhere. Have a great weekend, and remember — don’t lose heart.
The shittiest week ever had a huge silver lining. While we’re sorry to see that Jen Psaki is leaving the White House on May 13, we are so fucking happy to see who will be stepping up. Karine Jean-Pierre will be the first Black person to ever be WH press sec. She will be the first Black woman to do it. She will be the first openly LGBTQ person to do it. And we are here for all of it. Give ‘em hell, Karine! More: CNN
Fuck off, Susan
Susan Collins, who has for years been described as moderate and pro-choice, actually just sucks. Yeah, Susan has gone from concerned that some lying justices lied to her to being just fine with it and refusing to join a Democratic bill that would codify Roe into law. Yeah, she has some made up concerns about how it doesn’t go far enough to protect Catholics. You’d think she would get a question about whether she’s actually pro-choice, but that would be asking a lot of our gutless beltway media. More: CNN
Holy shit that’s a big jobs report! Yeah, let’s close this week out on a positive note. In April, the economy added 428,000 jobs, and the unemployment rate stayed at 3.6 percent which is like a 50-year low. This is a great jobs report, and we should all be talking about it. When we’re not screaming profanity about the fall of Roe. Good job, Joe! More: CNN
