3.7.23 What happens when Republicans destroy the economy
It’s Tuesday. There are 609 days until the presidential election. A Florida a-hole wants the Jan. 6 committee prosecuted, Dark Brandon unveils he will save medicare and what happens when Republicans destroy the economy.
Be advised: This is a cussing newsletter because this is America and we can tell our politicians to eat shit. Today we’re doing it in all caps.
Note: Sexy Patriots! How is your week getting started? Amid a horrifying effort by Republicans to cover up a domestic terrorist attack they incited on the United States Capitol?! Yeah, ours too. Those sick motherfuckers. Let’s consider today’s TBS opening note more of a PSA than a joke or a point we wanted to expand upon. Y’all ready? Ok here we go…
THAT SHIT REALLY FUCKING HAPPENED! THERE WERE MORE THAN 100 COPS BRUTALLY BEATEN AND INJURED! SOME LATER DIED! REPUBLICANS’ DEGENERATE FUCKHEAD FRIENDS SMEARED THEIR OWN SHIT ON THE WALLS OF THE SAME BUILDING THAT AMERICANS DIED TO PROTECT ON SEPT. 11, 2001! THEY ATTACKED OUR COUNTRY BECAUSE THEY LOST A FUCKING ELECTION! THEY WANTED TO HANG THE VICE PRESIDENT! THEY WANTED TO KILL THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE! THIS SHIT ALL FUCKING HAPPENED!
And anyone who says different is a fucking liar who hates this country. They can kiss our asses and then go eat shit from a sick goat. And then after that they can fuck right off. Y’all have a blessed day.
Note two: Here’s a letter from Brian Sicknick’s family. It’s a Fuck You to Tucker Carlson and the rest of the assholes trying to cover up what happened…
Quite the statement here from the family of U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick tonight:
"Every time the pain of that day seems to have ebbed a bit, organizations like Fox rip our wounds wide open again and we are frankly sick of it. Leave us the hell alone..." https://t.co/V8O5jkl9pR

Note three: Elon Musk spent yesterday breaking twitter, spreading lies about Jan. 6 and publicly attacking a former twitter employee with muscular dystrophy. What a fucking asshole. More: BBC
Note four: Fox News is all in on trying to repair its relationship with Trump, and a full-scale effort to rewrite the Jan. 6 attack is part of that orange devil’s bargain. Y’all wanna let them get away with it? We don’t either.
Note five: Republicans are soulless monsters. Exhibit 2,838,383,924…
Senator, do you think transgender people should be eradicated?
CORNYN: "I don't have any comment on that."

Note six: Border crossings are dropping. We’re sure the Republican Party is busy making a banner to thank President Biden. More: AP
Note seven: One of our dear readers sent us a story about the moon getting its own time zone. We’re cool with that as long as those lunar motherfuckers have to mess with daylight savings time too. Don’t forget to spring ahead this weekend. More: NY Times
Note eight: Remember when Newt Gingrich was running for president and said he wanted to colonize the moon? What an idiot. Fun fact: Sam was there and pissed him off by asking when the moon’s primary would be. Good times.
Note nine: Are we seriously fucking doing this again? Trump is angry lying about his CPAC crowd being a joke. There are of course receipts. More: Independent
Note 10: Walgreens is feeling the heat and today they put out a statement that was a flat-out lie. They are an anti-choice company and Judd Legum has the proof. So fuck Walgreens.
BTW, @Walgreens has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to anti-abortion politicians and committees over the last few years, including $25,000 to @RepublicanAGs AFTER the group said the money would be used to restrict abortion rights https://t.co/C5JTFFE1UN

Note 11: Remember that crazy sonofabitch who ran for governor in Pennsylvania and got his ass whooped so bad nobody even pretended the election was stolen? Well he’s thinking about running for the Senate. Are we really that lucky? POLITICO STORY — NO LINK
Note 12: Mark Finchem was the lunatic asshole who ran to be Arizona’s Secretary of State. He’s now being sanctioned for filing frivolous lawsuits after his loss, and a quick glance at his twitter feed suggests he ain’t taking it too well. Yikes. More: AP
Note 13: BREAKING: Josh Hawley is still a fucking coward who pissed himself on Jan. 6.
Note 14: What’s the worst that could happen with Sarah Hucakbee Sanders as a governor? Oh we see. More: KNOE
Note 15: Chuck Schumer has been on the Senate floor this morning reading Tucker Carlson to filth…
Schumer: As reporting on the dominion lawsuit shows, Mr. Carlson had no problem admitting behind the scenes that the big lie is pure garbage. https://t.co/5WSj3hJHX4

Note 16: Marjorie and Don Jr. have been tweeting about what a raw deal the QAnon Shaman got. As Americans, we’re appalled. As Democrats who like winning elections, we are thrilled for them to make that fucking loser the face of their party. NO LINK
Note 17: Republicans in Georgia are trying to control local prosecutors. But only because one of them is a Black woman who might be about to take down one of their criminal buddies. Yes, this is extremely fucked up. More: AJC
Note 18: Five women in Texas are suing over the state’s abortion ban because it almost got them killed. Godspeed. More: NY Times
Note 19: Let’s end on a happy note. Gym Jordan is worried he’s embarrassing himself. Because he is. So he’s scrambling to un-embarrass himself. LOLOL!!! More: Axios
Note 20: And on that hilarious note, let’s go do some news! We really enjoy spending this time with you. You’re sexy. You’re patriotic. And you’re not trying to convince us that an attack on the Capitol that we saw with our own eyes didn’t actually happen. And we really love that about you. Have a great day, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow for more truth and cussin’.
As part of the batshit crazy fall-out from Tucker’s Jan. 6 bullshit, Trump is now calling for the members of the Jan. 6 committee to be prosecuted for treason. Republicans are really playing with fire here, and we have ZERO faith that the Capitol Hill press corps is going to hold McCarthy to account here.
TRUTH SOCIAL SO NO LINK
Today in the NYT, Joe Biden has an op-ed about his plan to extend the solvency of Medicare for the next 25 years. Basically he wants to make more drugs cheaper so the cost keeps going down. He also wants to raise taxes on people making more than $400,000 a year. Sounds good to us!
So here’s what happens when Republicans tank the economy — we immediately lose about 2.6 million jobs and go right to a recession. That’s according to a new analysis in the NYT today. Over in the Washington Post you’ll see a story about a speaker of the House who made a deal to cut spending that he can’t possibly keep so yeah we are headed for absolute fucking disaster. Made worse by a Republican Fed chairman who seems to get off on putting people out of work. Dark Brandon, you have your work cut out for you.

Michelle Obama opened up about leaving Washington, D.C., with her husband, former President Barack Obama, after Donald Trump’s inauguration.
“You walk through the Capitol, you wave goodbye, you get on Marine One, and you take your last flight flying over the Capitol,” she said in Tuesday’s debut episode of “Michelle Obama: The Light Podcast,” according to People. More: HuffPost
