“North Korea expressed outrage Thursday at Sen. John McCain’s description of President Kim Jong Un as a “crazy fat kid,” calling the former presidential candidate a “noted idiot.”

The Arizona Republican made the comment last week on MSNBC’s For the Record with Greta while suggesting Beijing should do more to control North Korea’s bad behavior.

China is the one, the only one, that can control Kim Jong Un, this crazy fat kid that’s running North Korea,” McCain said, adding that China “could stop North Korea’s economy in a week.”

The state-run North Korean News Service accused McCain of attacking that nation’s dignity.

“Noted idiot John McCain denounced as an infantile lunatic angrily soiling himself after slandering august personages of DPRK,” the service tweeted Thursday.”


Awe poor little dictator got his fee fees hurt

It’s probably not a good sign that America’s new gun control policy essentially boils down to training little kids to be badass warriors with secret ninja skills.

“Sure, we COULD have background checks and ban AK47s…but, no, let’s just expect all these children to be Katniss Everdeen.”

The Mogollon Monster - Arizona’s Sasquatch

The Mogollon Monster is a cryptid native to the Mogollon Rim in Central and Eastern Arizona. The Moggolon Rim forms the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau. 

It is considered to be a relative of Bigfoot. Accounts place the creature at over seven feet tall, with large red eyes, long black to brown-red hair, inhumane strength, and a very pungent odor. Footprints have been measured at 22 inches. The Mogollon Monster is said to be very violent and territorial. 

One of the first documented sightings was in 1903. The report, which was published in The Arizona Republican, stated that the witness saw a large creature with long white hair and a matching beard drinking blood from two cougars. Grey hair covered different parts of the torso, but the witness believed it was just dirty. 

More recently, members of the White Mountain Apache Nation came forward in 2006, reporting sightings of a tall, black creature that had long strides. Many of their members had been reporting encounters. No reported encounters were considered negative or violent in nature. 

Utah is not particularly friendly territory for Donald Trump because most of the voters there are sober.

Y'know, I’m kind of tired of this whole “Democrats lost because they talked too much about Minorities and ID politics” shit

They didn’t win the House because of heavy Gerrymandering in Republican states (Texas and North Carolina come to mind), same with state legislatures.

If focusing on how awful the GOP is in regards to racial and sexual minorites, why did Joe “Round up the Illegals” Arpio lose in heavily Republican Arizona when Trump won the state? Why did Pat “Potty Police” McCrory lose in N. Carolina when Trump won the state? Why did Russ Feingold do better than Hillary Clinton?

Because the National level Democrats are a mess, their ground game involved campaign to suburban women in Red states instead of motivating their base in critical Tossup states. Because the National Democrats decided that 25 years of smears against Hillary Clinton, fair or not, wouldn’t affect her chances negatively. Because the National Democrats cared more about projections and metrics than talking to actual people.

My county in “deep red” Texas was an even split between Clinton and Trump, yet I saw more presence from Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein on the ground here during the General than I did Clinton. Or in 2014 they abandoned Wendy Davis for no reason besides it being Texas. Or when they abandoned Mark White in the same way, even though he was popular and polled well. They make no effort to help us, so why should we go out and vote for them?

And they’re still clueless about it. Nancy Pelosi said that people didn’t want change. Are y'all that really out of touch????

I used to think the NRA and gun sellers were just callously indifferent to mass shootings. But it’s more twisted than that: Any time something like that happens, gun sales go through the roof. They make an absolute fortune. It is now in these people’s best financial interests to get guns into the hands of crazy young men. Think I’m being too cynical?

Exhibit A

I read a jaw-dropping online defense of these weapons from a California woman recently. Guns, she said, are just tools. Like spoons, she said. Would you outlaw spoons simply because some people use them to eat too much? Lady, let’s see you try to kill twenty schoolkids with a fucking spoon.

Latina Trump supporter faces backlash online and offline

Tucson resident Betty Rivas is facing major backlash for her actions at a Donald Trump rally. After Trump invited Rivas to the stage because she held a sign saying “Latinos Support D. Trump” in the air, Rivas’ restaurant, Sammy’s Mexican Grill, has faced harassment both online and off. But that’s not the whole story, the Bernie Sanders twist is where things really get interesting.
