Most presidents who might have found themselves recently impeached, “recent” meaning that very week, might want to lay low a bit, keep their head down, make plans on surviving the near future. Most presidents don’t get impeached, and no president has even been like Donald Trump. Only Trump would throw a “Studio 54” themed party at Mar-a-Lago the Saturday after a Wednesday impeachment. Nothing says “I am a responsible leader who takes public service honorably, and am deliberating on my mistakes and plan for the future” like a party glorifying the days of cocaine-fueled club debauchery with Andy Warhol, Mick Jaeggar and Roy Cohn. This time, Rudy Giuliani played the role of Roy Cohn, the man who as former U.S. Attorney and mayor of New York City would likely have arrested half the people attending a Studio 54 party for committing a felony of some kind just being present. #RudyGiulianipartiedDonaldTrumpsStudio54themedMarLagosoire Rudy Giuliani partied at Donald Trump's Studio 54 themed Mar-a-Lago soirée https://t.co/aNhPa1BQtP https://t.co/GA5oXyiqcm pic.twitter.com/MCA5u3o9fH — Manfred Rosenberg (@4PawShop) December 22, 2019 Guess who else was there! Yes, our man of Christ, Franklin Graham, because it wouldn’t be a Studio 54 party without rich, rank, hypocrisy, now would it? Not twenty-four hours after Christianity Today publishes its article about Trump’s intrinsic immorality, the son of the magazine’s founder slides onto the dance floor, probably got a popper in his pocket and a twenty three year old at his side, wondering if the money is worth it. The 23-year old is wondering if the money is worth it, not Franklin. He maximized his thirty pieces of silver long ago. Guess who else was there? This one is no joke at all. War criminal Eddie Gallagher, stabber of children. This vile creature’s presence tells you all you need to know about the rest of the party. On Instagram, we learn President Trump welcomed Eddie Gallagher, who posed for photographs with a prisoner's corpse, to Mar-a-Lago last night. pic.twitter.com/AVFVmQJ8VL — David Gura (@davidgura) December 22, 2019 Two awful men, and likely two awful women. This isn’t the first time Trump has had a “Studio 54” party at Mar-a-Lago. Nope. He had one a year and a half ago, right after meeting the kids and victims from Parkland. Nothing says “I need some cocaine and women” like meeting with kids who faced gunfire in their own school. I suppose we should count ourselves lucky that only impeachment presaged this particular Studio 54 themed “gala.” Actually, Trump first attended a big gathering of “Turning Point USA,” which I guess (correct me if I am wrong) is the new version of the college Republicans, the younger crowd. Maybe it is just a coincidence that Trump had his big party at Mar-a-Lago after attending a summit of college-aged girls that swoon in his very presence. Trump gave a talk to Turning Point that would have most people turning away: Trump’s nuts rant about wind energy: “I never understood wind. You know, I know windmills very much… Gases are spewing into the atmosphere. You know we have a world, right? So the world is tiny compared to the universe. So tremendous, tremendous amount of fumes & everything.” pic.twitter.com/DvkJq9NbWg — Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) December 23, 2019 So that happened. The other thing I want to point out, beyond just how awful it […]
Sometimes people in Washington get it plain wrong!
If conservatives support police killing citizens without justification, climate denial, fact denial, science denial, racist and misogynistic behavior, or a litany of other absurd points of view about numerous important issues, we call them out.
