As I watched disgraced conservative Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s angry, petulant testimony in the U.S. Senate today I couldn’t help but think he reminded me of someone.
Watch as Milwaukee Public Schools Board Member Michael Bonds, who represents the Third District, shows what he thinks of a woman with an opinion, telling MPS teacher Amy Mizialko to “go to hell” more than once when she called him out during a recent board meeting.
Here’s the exchange in question.
It’s worth noting Michael Bonds telling Amy Mizialko to “go to hell” isn’t the only time he’s had an issue with a female educator, as you can watch HERE and HERE.
I didn’t even know that this movie existed until I watched on my vacation flight to Thailand. But if you have a chance to watch it, take the opportunity. Some of the events and statements in the movie apply to the current environment as well as the Watergate era it depicts. Particularly the relationship between the FBI and the White House.
side note: Liam Neeson is awesome
At last night’s Grammys, A Tribe Called Quest delivered a powerful performance directed right at president Donald Trump and his anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant policies.
Here it is:
A scuffle apparently broke out yesterday at a Trump rally in Reno when a self-proclaimed Republican protester tried to wave a “Republicans Against Trump” sign at the rally. Trump supporters reportedly attacked him and tackled him in an attempt to take the sign away from him. Somewhere in the melee a member of the crowd yelled “GUN” and the Secret Service rushed Trump from the stage. But there was no gun, there was no threat, there was just the usual storm around the groundlings at a Trump rally.
But it gets more interesting…the Trump campaign on several counts is calling this an assassination attempt and despite the fact that no weapon was found and no body has been taken into custody…they aren’t backing off of the story. I can’t understand why they can continue to get away with such nonsense.
Shouldn’t the individual who yelled “GUN” be held accountable? Isn’t this akin to the oft quoted yelling “FIRE” in a theater?
But let’s get back to the gun thing for an instant. Isn’t the candidate in full and total support of the 2nd Amendment? So shouldn’t a gun not be an unusual occurrence at a Trump rally? Shouldn’t we be assuming that many of his core supporters are packing? Why would a gun be a big surprise? Oh wait, only good guys with guns count.
And a number of videos are running around of the protester. Here’s an interview with Good Morning America.
