FiveThirtyEight Declares Focus On Obesity A Tactic Of ‘Right-Wing Trolls’

By Tristan Justice
  • Focusing on obesity as though it were the only risk factor for severe COVID-19 is a trend among right-wing communities that combines two parallel threads in online subcultures: the anti-vax community’s belief that a healthy lifestyle and one’s natural immune system are as effective as vaccination in preventing disease and the right-wing troll culture’s long fixation on fat shaming.
  • FiveThirtyEight politics reporter Kaleigh Rogers acknowledged obesity significantly raises one’s risk to COVID-19, but went on to brand such a focus on obesity as an ill-faith fixation of “right-wing communities,” without emphasizing how individuals who live a healthy lifestyle absent underlying conditions enjoy a 99 percent odds of survival.

Fox Host: Simone Biles Should’ve ‘Worked On’ Her Sexual Abuse Before Olympics

By John Amato

During Wednesday's Ingraham Angle, guest and sometimes host Raymond Arroyo, who writes religious books and hosts a show on a Catholic network, made believe he was a sex abuse expert and attacked Simone Biles for not "sticking the landing in the Olympics."

Ingraham played some video of Biles talking to the media to explain why she pulled out of the Tokyo games.

Cut to Arroyo who said, "On the one hand I get it, she had a bad performance, she was lost midair in a flip. She probably feared breaking her neck There is also the traumatic sex abuse that she endured at the hands of evil Dr. Nassar, BUT"

Sure, what Dr. Larry Nassar did is easily fixed with a few therapy sessions.

There's always a BUT when it comes to these f**king bastards that use their religious beliefs to attack our US athletes for purely right-wing political reasons.


"The time to work through all of that was before the Olympic trials not during the Olympic games. You're part of a team now and if you can physically perform, your job is get into that headspace where you can overcome your fears and your jitters and stick the landing," Arroyo said.

DeSantis Mocks CDC’s Mask Guidance as Florida Has 20 Percent of U.S. Cases

By Corbin Bolies
Michael Reaves/Getty

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis doesn’t seem to care much about the new CDC guidelines recommending vaccinated people mask up again in risky areas. Speaking to an unmasked crowd of 450 at the conservative American Legislative Exchange Council, he thought the best approach would be to mock it. “Did you not get the CDC’s memo? I don’t see you complying,” he told the Salt Lake City crowd. DeSantis said in his speech that Florida would not impose any more lockdowns in response to the pandemic, even as the state is responsible for a fifth of the country’s COVID-19 cases and every county in the state is considered a “high” transmission zone by the CDC.

“It is very important,” he said, “that we say unequivocally no to lockdowns, no to school closures, no to restrictions and no to mandates.” He blamed the rising case counts as part of “a summer COVID season.”

Pelosi decides she doesn’t have time to waste on ‘moronic’ McCarthy and neither does America

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has a message for reporters intent on asking her about the absurdity of Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy: Don't waste my time.

In fact, that's exactly what she told a CNN reporter Tuesday when she asked about McCarthy admitting he hadn't watched the opening hearing of the select committee to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection.

“Anytime you mention his name, you're not getting an answer from me," Pelosi responded. "Don't waste my time."

But Pelosi's blunt response wasn’t isolated—it's of a piece. On Wednesday, an NBC producer tweeted out a direct quote of Pelosi calling McCarthy a "moron" after he dismissed the Capitol mask mandates as "against the science."

Nigerian Instagram Influencer Bilked Businessman Out of $1 Million, Feds Say

By Zoe Richards
Hushpuppi/Instagram

A Nigerian Instagram influencer known as “Hushpuppi” has admitted to playing a role in a conspiracy to steal more than $1.1 million from a Qatari businessman, according to a federal grand jury indictment unsealed Wednesday. The Justice Department said in a statement that alleged money launderer Ramon Abbas, who has amassed 2.5 million Instagram followers while flaunting his wealth, faked a school’s financing by pretending to be a bank official and creating a bogus website to convince a Qatari businessman to hand over his money.

Part of the money was used to purchase a luxury watch, which was hand delivered to Abbas in Dubai and later peppered his social media posts, prosecutors said. Abbas allegedly also used a portion of the stolen funds to acquire citizenship in St. Christopher and Nevis and for a passport, the Justice Department said. Abbas also admitted to “several other cyber and business email compromise schemes that cumulatively caused more than $24 million in losses,” federal prosecutors said.

Retired General Says Executive Branch ‘Complicit’ In Planning 1/6

By Susie Madrak

General Honoré, who you may remember was in charge of the military aid effort after Hurricane Katrina, is not one to mince words -- but he's also not a blowhard. This is one of the main reasons Kevin McCarthy keeps throwing himself in front of the select committee train. Via MSN.com:

Retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré, who was tasked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with conducting a review of the US Capitol's security after January 6, on Tuesday said President Donald Trump's White House was complicit in orchestrating the insurrection.

"It's my personal opinion that the executive branch was complicit in the planning and the delayed response that occurred in bringing in more federal assistance to the Capitol that day," Honoré said during an MSNBC appearance, underscoring that he had not reached this conclusion from the security review he spearheaded.

"That's my own perception, based on what I've seen and what I've heard and by the fact the former president is continuing to tell people, 'This was not a riot, it meant no harm, it was like a picnic,'" Honoré said, adding, "The last I heard from him, he told them to go to the Capitol and raise hell."

Source: Slate Brooks, like Republican leaders who tried to counterprogram the hearing with a press conference yesterday, thinks a proper investigation would look at why House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office wasn’t “doing a better job with respect to the Capitol Police and their level of preparation.” Then, to prove his point about preparation, he revealed a new detail to me: that because of a tip he’d received about potential violence, he’d been wearing body armor at the very same Ellipse speech in which he encouraged rally attendees to “start taking down names and kicking ass.” “I was warned on Monday that there might be risks associated with the next few days,” he said. “And as a consequence of those warnings, I did not go to my condo. Instead, I slept on the floor of my office. And when I gave my speech at the Ellipse, I was wearing body armor. “That’s why I was wearing that nice little windbreaker,” he told me with a grin. “To cover up the body armor.”
