Kirsten Gillibrand Scores 10 on the Vomit Meter

by Christopher Paslay

The pasty white senator from New York says it’s her duty to explain white privilege to suburban white women who voted for Trump. 

Were you able to make it through all 54 seconds of the above video without vomiting all over the place?  Neither could most people.  Still, if you can’t stomach the video and still want to read what Kirsten Gillibrand says about her duty to lecture suburban white women who voted for Trump about their “white privilege,” the transcript is provided below (with analytical commentary). Enjoy.  

KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND: “I don’t believe that it’s the responsibility of Cory and Kamala to be the only voice that takes on these issues of institutional racism, systemic racism in our country.  I think as a white woman of privilege who is a U.S. senator running for president of the United States, it is also my responsibility to lift up those voices that aren’t being listened to.”

(Thank you, Kirsten, for acknowledging that you are indeed special and so much better than the rest of us.

KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND: “And I can talk to those white women in the suburbs that voted for Trump and explain to them what white privilege actually is.”  

(Yes Kirsten, please teach those good natured, family-oriented suburban women who voted for Trump how to see the world through the lens of skin color like you do so well.)     

KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND: “That when their son is walking down the street with a bag of M&Ms in his pocket, wearing a hoodie, his whiteness is what protects him from not being shot.”  

(Its was Skittles, not M&Ms.  Oh, and by the way: The Trayvon Martin case was over seven years ago, so you might want to Google something else to talk about.  And for the record, Martin was 17 years old, 5-11, and not only sucker-punched George Zimmerman for being a “creepy-ass-cracker,” but also pounded Zimmerman’s head off the cement, MMA style.)   

KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND: “When their child has a car that breaks down and he knocks on someone’s door for help and the door opens and the help is given, it’s his whiteness that protects him from being shot.”

(So a black person comes to my door, and I have my gun, and my response is to shoot them? What universe do you live in?)  

KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND: “That’s what white privilege in America is today.”  

(Thanks for explaining that so accurately.)

KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND: “And so my responsibility is not only to lift up those stories, but explain to communities across America, like I did in Youngstown Ohio, to a young mother, that this is all of our responsibilities, and that together, we can make our community stronger.”    

(Thank you, Kirsten, for lifting up those heartwarming stories and bringing us all together as one.  Vomit!  Puke!  Gag!)


Ex-Miss Michigan Kathy Zhu Joins Women for Trump Coalition

by Christopher Paslay

After being stripped of her Miss Michigan crown for her conservative beliefs, Zhu joins #WomenforTrump Coalition Advisory Board.

Great news!  Ex-Miss Michigan Kathy Zhu recently Joined the Women for Trump Coalition!  According to CBS News:

Kathy Zhu, the former Miss Michigan who was stripped of her title last week after several offensive tweets surfaced, has joined Trump’s reelection campaign efforts. The official Team Trump twitter account welcomed her on board Thursday, calling her a “patriot who has continued to stand for American values despite being stripped of her crown.” . . .

Speaking at a Women for Trump event in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan Friday, Zhu claimed that being openly conservative is extremely difficult. “It’s harder, I think, than coming out as, honestly, gay,” she said.

Zhu was stripped of her 2019 crown last week because of two controversial tweets from 2017 and 2018:

The first tweet read, “There is a ‘try a hijab on’ booth at my college campus. So you’re telling me that it’s now just a fashion accessory and not a religious thing? Or are you just trying to get women used to being oppressed under Islam?”

The second tweet was as follows: “Did you know that the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks?  Fix problems within your own community first before blaming others.”

“Little attacks like those really, really diminishes the value and the trust of the word, ‘racism,'” Zhu responded in a twitter video

Zhu is now putting her energy into something much more positive than splitting hairs over nonsensical accusations of racism: she’s working with conservative women to help President Trump get reelected.  

“Team Trump welcomes Kathy Zhu to the Official #WomenforTrumpCoalition Advisory Board! [Kathy] is a patriot who has continued to stand for American values despite being stripped of her crown. Thank you for your support of President [Donald Trump],” Team Trump wrote Friday evening on Twitter.

According to the Daily Caller:

Zhu spoke at a Women for Trump luncheon Friday in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, where she was greeted by a standing ovation, reported The Detroit Free Press. . . .

“I think that everything I’ve said is considered free speech because it is backed up by statistics, facts, something I have experiences or my opinions,” she continued, according to The Detroit Free Press. “I don’t have a racist bone in my body. I don’t think I am Islamophobic, but I am going to criticize something that doesn’t fit within my morals when I see it.”

Zhu supported Trump’s 2016 campaign when she was a teen, and is back to help the president a second time.  Hopefully, Zhu can work her mojo and help Trump get reelected in 2020!

Lara Trump Launches ‘Women for Trump’ Coalition in Greater Philadelphia

Women for Trump will not only highlight the President’s clear record of success during his first term but will share a vision of empowerment and prosperity for every person in every corner of our country.

On Tuesday Lara Trump, President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law and campaign adviser, stumped on his behalf in Montgomery County, PA.  According to Newsweek:

Trump’s 2020 campaign, Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., this week announced the launch of “Women for Trump,” a coalition to court female voters in supporting the second term reelection of Trump.

Lara Trump, the president’s daughter-in-law and one of the key leaders of the campaign, launched “Women for Trump” at a King of Prussia casino in the Philadelphia suburbs on Tuesday. In front of several hundred women Lara Trump asked the crowd: “Is your life better now than it was before Donald Trump got elected? Do you have a little more money in your bank account, did you get a break on your tax return this year?”

Lara Trump was joined by other leaders of the coalition, including Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel, Kimberly Guilfoyle, a former Fox News host who’s now serving as a top adviser to the campaign, American Tea Party activist Katrina Pierson, as well as Trump 2020 reelection campaign staffers Mercedes Schlapp and Kayleigh McEnany.

“Because of President Trump’s policies, women have seen large gains in employment numbers, in securing our communities and most importantly in equipping the next generation of female leaders” Lara Trump said, in a statement emailed to Newsweek. “‘Women for Trump’ will not only highlight the President’s clear record of success during his first term but will share a vision of empowerment and prosperity for every person in every corner of our country.”

The Trump campaign noted that the president had more female donors than any of his Democratic opponents in the first quarter of 2019. These contributions accounted for nearly half of the total received during that period.

“There never has been a president that has worked so hard on behalf of American women as President Trump,” Guilfoyle, who’s currently dating the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., said. “People can argue politics all day long, but the numbers are the numbers and they simply cannot be debated nor ignored. It is an honor for me to be part of this movement.”
