Totally Important Fake News!

Posted: March 21, 2017 by veeshir in Fun With Media, Funniest End of Civilization Evah, GOP FAIL, Islam - a religion of tolerance and peace, PEBKAC, Trump, We're boned

I just cannot keep watching the news. We had months of reports of ‘leaked transcripts of wiretapping” that attempted to harm Trump, which immediately switched to “no proof of wiretapping!” as soon as that could harm Trump.

I’m not interested. At this point, I’m only wondering how the GOP is going to try to explain being feckless assholes who refuse to do anything they’ve been specifically elected to do. Like get the gov’t out of healthcare, secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws.

But since the ‘news’ is out, let’s get some NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Heavy on vids and pics.

First, some real news.

Geez, Trump is so fascist and hatist, mere proximity has turned Canada into a bunch of fascist haters!

Nearly half of Canadians want to deport people who are illegally crossing into Canada from the United States, and a similar number disapprove of how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is handling the influx, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday.

I do wonder how they reconcile that stance and their, Trump is a racist hater for wanting the same thing, stance. You know they’re probably mad at America over it, They’re America’s Illegal Aliens!

 

If you’re going to make fun of Trump, this is how to do it. Zapp Brannigan doing Trump quotes.

Perfect and hilarious. While we’ve never seen them in the same room together, I’ve never seen Trump wear velour. But then, the 70s were sort of a blur and that’s when he would have worn one.

We all have clothes from the 70s we’d like to forget.

 

Via this dude, we see that erstwhile QB Colin Kapernick had some luck on the free agent market!

We know he can scramble and throw a bomb. I’m not sure how he’d do against America’s defensive line, but I’d like to see!

 

Relatedly, via the Jawas, we see this bit of hilarity.

 

Boycott us? No! Boycott You!

Oh, and go fuck yourself. Especially considering the use of “repressive”, just cuz you’re trying to delegitimize their nation doesn’t mean they should be rude!

 

This Amtrack train came into the station through a snow bank, it’s sorta cool, but notice all the people filming this with their phones. Not a one of them realizes that what they’re filming could affect them in any way until it’s far too late. They’re just swept aside. I wonder how badly they, including our intrepid reporter, were injured.

Situational awareness, it’s not just for buying drugs in shitty neighborhoods you know.

 

Now, I could understand padded knees, but would someone explain these mom-jeans to me?

No wait, don’t. I’m sure it’s stupid and I’ve learned enough stupid things for the day.

 

 

US Women’s Hockey Boycotting Championships Over Equal Pay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven’t actually watched women’s hockey but if it’s as riveting as women’s basketball, I’m gonna assume there’s a reason for the disparity in pay.

 

Now this story is a perfect example of the problem with journalism today.

Some guy rammed his car into a tree, repeatedly. Here’s the problem.

Headline

Police: Man charged after crashing car into tree repeatedly ‘to prove a point’

Story

A local man is facing charges after police said he repeatedly drove a car into a tree on his property in order to “prove a point” to another resident at the address…

Bailey told officers that he had done so “to try and prove a point”…

he was ramming the car into a tree to prove a point…

 

Who: Local Man, What: Ram car into tree, Where: Pawcuatuck, When, 3pm for half an hour, How: By driving his car

They got the sensational stuff out of the way, tried to make him look like a dumb redneck, but nowhere do they tell us the important “Why”.

Not once do they mention the point he was trying to prove.

They make a point of telling us 4 times that he was attempting to prove a point, but they don’t mention the point or if he proved it!

Just shoddy journalism. How can we know if the point was worth it?

I also don’t see why the police were involved, he was on his own property destroying his own stuff, that’s none of their business.

But then, everything is now the govt’s business anymore it seems.
