By D’Anne Witkowski I don’t listen to a lot of country music. In fact, since Trump’s “election” I haven’t listened to anything other than heavy metal (it’s honestly the only music that makes sense right now). Still, I do love me some Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton. So, when I heard that former Arkansas governor
Creep of the Week
By D’Anne Witkowski When I was a kid I knew of Bermuda only from songs, specifically “Kokomo” by the Beach Boys (“Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama”) and “Bermuda Triangle” by Barry Manilow, a mysterious love story of sorts that includes the lyric, “Lying with my woman on the island sand.” Ha ha ha. It’s
By D’Anne Witkowski Alex Jones of the conspiracy-laden, right-wing echo chamber that is Infowars took a closer look at the so-called Women’s March on the Jan. 22 episode of The Alex Jones Show. What he found will shock you: litter(ally). After ranting about the evils of soy lattes (“women who drink them can’t get pregnant,” he said) Jones refers to
By D’Anne Witkowski God bless the people in Colorado who hung up rainbow Make America Gay Again banners outside of the home Vice President Mike Pence and his family were staying in while on vacation at the end of last month (last year, even!). Nobody deserves to be dragged for anti-LGBTQ past, present, and future
By D’Anne Witkowski I’d say, “Well, we survived the first year of the Trump Administration,” but the truth is not everyone did or will. Take this tax scam bill that the Republicans passed and Trump signed. By removing the individual mandate in the Affordable Care Act, they’ve essentially removed a fundamental structure of the program.
By D’Anne Witkowski I debated whether I should make Donald Trump or Roy Moore my Creep this week. Both are super creepy in so many ways. But ultimately Moore may or may not be elected by the people of Alabama to the god damn Senate by the time you read this, but Trump will, sadly, most definitely still be the president. And
By D’Anne Witkowski When the Trump era is written about in history books, assuming we survive that long, if there are any heroes in this sordid story those heroes will be federal judges. You may recall that in July Trump Tweeted out that “the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to
By D’Anne Witkowski The Trump Presidency has truly redefined “breaking news” in the most literal way. Every day there is a new harm, a new insult, a new degradation heaped onto the American people. If you feel exhausted, disgusted, and helpless, well then, know that they’re getting to you. All is working as planned. Trump
By D’Anne Witkowski Ah, religious freedom. That call to arms for conservative Christians who believe that they live in some Bizzaro Land version of America where they are persecuted for their beliefs. And so, in the name of religious freedom, Jeff Sessions has issued guidance that says ladies ain’t get no free birth control anymore.
By D’Anne Witkowski Houston’s under water right now, but don’t worry, Donald Trump is feverishly working to ferret out transgender service members. I’m going to guess that when National Guard members arrive to rescue people from flooded homes nobody’s cares about whether or not their rescuer is trans. And yet Trump, who has never served
