Sunday: Who Knew? GOP = #GrabOurPussies

 

Well, the GOP have been grabbing our pussies for a while now, legislatively….

It only follows that the letters actually stand for Grab Our Pussies!

I’ve got some images for you, before we get to the links…you have probably seen these already but they are too good to keep off the front page.

I loved that comment from Edward…I hope he doesn’t mind me sharing it with y’all.

As for Trump himself…he made a few comments this morning:

All I can say is that tonight’s debate is going to be frightening. Let’s be sure to watch it together.

My post is not as eloquent as Boston Boomer’s was yesterday. I don’t have the patience to write anything today because the whole thing has me so disgusted and pissed off.

Let’s just say I am glad that the bomb has dropped but why the fuck has it taken so long for this to happen?

Dent: Pressure on GOP Leaders to Pull Away From Trump

Two prominent Republican lawmakers on Sunday called for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to drop out of the presidential race.

“I have serious doubts now about Mr. Trump’s ability to beat Hilary Clinton. In fact, I don’t think he can,” Utah Sen. Mike Lee said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“I’m agnostic right now about who it needs to be,” Lee said when host Chuck Todd asked if vice presidential candidate Gov. Mike Pence should the nominee.

Lee alluded to the many sitting lawmakers in his party who have pulled their support for Trump.

“I think people have to consider the totality of the evidence,” he said. “There were a lot of others who wanted to be persuaded, who hoped they would be persuaded.”

All those making the case for Trump to pull out? I think this tweet by Krugman says a lot about that:

    And this is the ‘conservative party’

    Good post, JJ. I’m not saying “great” because that word is used too much by the orange bully.

    Made the mistake of glancing at comments to the Suzanne Moore article So Trump has crossed a line? His views are as old as misogyny itself. Lots of bully boys whining or belittling to excuse Trump, insult Moore, or say it’s all Hillary’s fault or Bill’s worse. They just prove Moore’s point.

  3. Fannie says:

    Thanks JJ for getting all the truth out. It’s been a hell of a weekend, and everybody but the republicans are doing a great job of communicating the truth about sexism, and how it harms, and promotes violence against women.

    I don’t accept Trump’s apology…………he can stand all night long, and say it, I’d never believe him. He is deliberate in his actions.

    The Christians have spoken, they will hold there noses and vote for Trump because they want to take control of the supreme court, and stop planned parenthood, and repeal Roe vs. Wade.

    This only shows you how bad the republicans really are. They had 18 up on the stage, and they gave us Trump. They accepted him then, as they do now. The end is coming, it is near, and Trump’s Episodes will be over, and so will the party. I’ve gotten angry like a lot of people over this election, the are with HER, and all our sisters, daughters, mothers, aunts, cousins ought to be too. I am going to miss you all tonight, but I am going to try and sneak in to say something, if possible. Go Sky Dancers, all my love.

      Not sure I can stand to listen to Trump without vomiting, but I sure could use a dose of Hillary strength now.
