Hot Topic Handmaid Hearings
Putting aside her evangelical conservative positions, she is not even remotely qualified for SCOTUS at this point in her career. Brace yourself, some of the panel wants to give her benefit of the doubt, I mean -lol.
Oftrump Handmaid was asked if it was illegal to interfere with voters. She blah blah through a non-answer, so Amy Klobuchar read the statute that it’s not only illegal but a federal crime. She was prompted to hold up an empty notepad which went viral on twitter but all it did was emphasize what a reality show sham this is. She’s the evangelical’s poster child for internalized misogyny. She was friendly and chummy with the male questioners but frosty (yesterday and today) with female questioners.
She also gave some dumb non answers about transfer of power and deciding the election which could be solved by her recusing herself or say she doesn’t believe the confirmation should occur before the election.
Hot Topic #BoycottNBC Wolf and Nancy Fight
Wolf is stupid because no stimulus bill for any amount has the votes to pass the Senate because McConnell has already made it clear they want a potential Democratic WH to suffer the consequences of fixing a failing economy and any austerity measures, just like he did with Obama in 2009+. Pelosi and the House worked months to get where it is today but GOP is not going to approve anything. So the whole Wolf-Nancy segment was a poor use of time because he seemed intent on blaming her, instead of asking-listening to why there are differences between Dem and GOP plans, plus the fact that McConnell isn’t going to let anything get approved in the Senate anyway.
Hot Topic #BoycottNBC Do You Miss Your Work Spouse
The panel was supposed to talk about their work environment. But only Joy tells stories. Joy’s work husband is her actual husband. Tells jokes about her husband being her in-home producer. She doesn’t miss being called a Communist while walking to work.
Hot Topic #BoycottNBC Aaron Sorkin
Aaron Sorkin is promoting his film The Trial of the Chicago 7 which drops on Netflix Friday 16 October. Also don’t miss HBO streaming West Wing Special on Thursday in partnership with @WhenWeAllVote
Click to read more about the Chicago 7 (Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, David Dellinger, Tom Hayden*, Rennie Davis, John Froines, and Lee Weiner) who were charged by the US federal government with conspiracy, inciting to riot, and other charges related to anti-Vietnam War and countercultural protests that took place in Chicago, Illinois, on the occasion of the 1968 Democratic National Convention.
First they talk about Handmaid Hearings. He doesn’t think it should be happening this close to the election and he doesn’t like her positions. Talks about history’s take on the Trump years, that he’ll always be an off-screen character because he’s so implausible to portray. Moves on to Chicago 7, which has been in the making for 14 yrs, when Steven Spielberg called Sorkin to his house to talk about writing the film. Then he talks about getting The West Wing cast back together for tomorrow’s event. They’ve kept in touch over the years but it was the first time they were together in person, it was emotional and great.
*Old(er) Hollywood fans may recognize the name Tom Hayden, who was (among other things) married to Jane Fonda for 17 yrs and they have a son, actor Troy Garity.
