11.13.23 Taking a moment to cuss Joe Manchin
It’s Monday. There are 359 days until the presidential election. Taking a moment to cuss Joe Manchin, taking a moment to laugh at Tim Scott and taking a moment to remember our fallen.
Be advised: This newsletter cusses like it went out and found a made-up girlfriend, became the laughing stock of the political world and still aint’ gonna become goddamn president.
Note: Sexy Patriots! How the eff are you today? Already forgetting what it felt like to win last week and increasingly freaked out by next year? Well we definitely feel that. Especially since most of Orange Assbreath’s speeches these days could fairly and accurately be called Hitler speeches. Like actually fucking Hitler speeches. And his statements aren’t much better.
New Column: It’s Official: With “Vermin,” Trump Is Now Using Straight-up Nazi Talk. We'd effing well better listen. newrepublic.com/article/176877… Follow @newrepublic

Well that’s pretty fucked up. Like insanely horrifically fucked up. Like holy shit how are any of us supposed to sleep for the next year fucked up. Since we were spiraling, we needed to get some perspective on this shit so we interviewed some actual vermin. Here now is our chat with Reggie the Rat…
TBS: Hi Reggie! Thanks for joining us.
Reggie the Rat: Hey guys. Big fan. Scary shit, huh?
TBS: Tell us about it. Are you worried?
Reggie: Of course I’m worried! That motherfucker is crazier than a shithouse me. But I’m also offended. I might be vermin but I never talked about having sex with my own daughter like that deranged freak.
TBS: Oh yeah, Trump did do that didn’t he?
Reggie: Yep. And I never sent a bunch of shit-eating scumbags to attack the US Capitol either.
TBS: Yeah he did that too. So what do you think we should do?
Reggie: I think you should stop freaking out and start focusing on beating his gross orange ass before shit gets really scary. I mean I’m the sonofabitch who got blamed for the bubonic fucking plague and even I’m not as much of a danger to humanity as that piece of shit.
TBS: That’s good advice, Reggie. Thanks for joining us.
Ok, y’all heard him. And yeah it’s crazy to be taking advice from a rat but it’s a lot crazier to be compared to one by a would-be dictator. So break’s over. Let’s get back to work. Y’all have a blessed day.
Note two: Btw here’s how the butt-kissing cowards at the NYT covered that Nazi shit…
Still can't quite believe the Times used this headline to describe a speech in which Trump called lefties "vermin." It's like a parody of an NYT headline, only it's real.

Note three: We’re gonna talk about this more in the news section but Tim Scott’s totally real girlfriend must be crushed to know she won’t be First Lady or Tim Scott’s totally real girlfriend. LOL just doesn’t seem strong enough. More: CBS
Note four: So the government is totally shutting down this weekend, right? We’re beginning to think the taint-kissing Taliban of the US ain’t too good at this whole governing thing. Hell, they’re not even that good at being human. More: CNN
Note five: So Trump hung up on Kim Kardashian. Is that the most sane thing his twisted dumbfuck orange ass has ever done? Can everyone please hang up on Kim Kardashian now? Like the whole world? More: Axios
Note six: We’ll talk more about this is in the news section but FUCK THESE FUCKING MOTHERFUCKERS!!!
NRSC Chairman Steve Daines had lobbied Donald Trump to endorse Jim Justice in #wvsen — and told him that could elevate Justice in primary and make it less likely Joe Manchin would run again, per source.
That would free up Manchin to run for WH and hurt Biden, Daines told Trump

Note 10: RFK is gross. Like really really really fucking gross. Oh and he walks totally barefoot in planes.

Note 11: We were gonna comment on the whole David Cameron news but we’re a little busy with our own fucked up shit. More: AP
Note 12: How great did your president look last Friday standing with UAW members? That’s our guy. And if you’re someone who works for a living in this country, he’s your guy too. More: NBC

Note 15: It’s Merrick Garland’s birthday. We were gonna send him best wishes, but we decided instead to wait three years and wish him a Ha Bir.
Note 16: Trump’s spokesman says they’re really not gonna round up people they hate and put them in camps and if you ask about it again you’ll be the first person put in the camps. Call us crazy but we believe him.
Spokesman denies that Trump rhetoric echoes that of dictators like Hitler and Mussolini and declares that those who say it does will find "their entire existence will be crushed when President Trump returns to the White House." @marianne_levine washingtonpost.com/politics/2023/…

Note 21: And on that disappointing note, let’s go do some news! We know it’s Monday and Trump is talking nazi shit, but it could be worse — you could be Tim Scott. Or his girlfriend. LOLOL!!!! Love y’all!
Fuck you, Joe
We seriously almost did a special Veterans Day edition that was only three words — Fuck Joe Manchin. Yeah, the corrupt miserable piece of shit who gets off on children in poverty announced last week he won’t run for re-election. He was gonna lose anyway, but now he’s free to fuck up democracy and America in new and creatively awful ways. Get ready for Joe Lieberman to run this degenerate scum for president. And because it needs to be said over and over again — fuck Joe Manchin.
We know this is shocking news, but Tim Scott ain’t gonna be president. Of anything. But especially not president of the United States. After enduring months of humiliation and having to invent a girlfriend to appease the sick bloodthirsty fucks of the GOP, Scott finally suspended his campaign. You might be wondering if he still counts as a loser since he never actually made it to an Election Day. The answer is yes. Yes he is.
We were crushed to hear about the deaths of five US service members during a training exercise in the Mediterranean this weekend. They were brave men and women. They were not suckers and losers. They were serving this country and they gave what Lincoln called the last full measure of devotion. Our hearts break for their families, and we wish them godspeed. Thank you to President Biden for his poignant words and condolences for these fallen heroes.
Former Speaker Kevin McCarthy hasn’t decided whether he will run for reelection next year. More: HuffPost
