That’s Why They’re Trying to Steal It

One more reminder: if your vote doesn’t count, then why are republicans striving so relentlessly to take it away from you?

Just yesterday, a conservative judge, who had ordered 200,000 likely Democrats to be purged from the voter rolls, doubled down and cited the election board for contempt for not caving in to a republican-led attempt to cage these voters and rob them of the legal rights. Members of the board were to be fined $250 a day until they stripped the right to vote from a group of people who are mostly democratic and legitimate.

Fortunately, they could—and did—appeal to a court that was not avidly playing for one side, and both the purge and the contempt charges were set aside.

For now, those 200,000 voters are hanging on to their right to vote… but conservatives are never going to give up on stripping democrats of their rights.

Not the Black Guy

Just days after he threatened to commit war crimes, Trump angrily whined that he, not the leader of Ethiopia, deserves the Nobel Peace Prize—for something he didn’t do, which wasn’t even the reason for the peace prize in the first place. The peace prize was for efforts to bring peace to the Horn of Africa, but Trump felt he should get it for negotiations over a Nile dam with Egypt—a deal he played no part in, and which did not avert any war or save any country.

“He was talking about Egypt and Ethiopia,” a senior Ethio­pian government official told the Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media on the matter. “President Trump really believes he avoided a war as such … but that was not the case.”

What an embarrassingly whiny idiot.
