Elizabeth Warren unleashes her internal Cougar
Jacob Wohl is just 21 years old but “hes already” built a luminou job for himself as an incompetent fraudster and unhinged scheme theorist. He’s been banned from Twitter for operating forge accountings. He’s been charged with defences fraud. He’s admitted to promoting false news to slander Democrat. He’s tried to made Robert Mueller and Pete Buttigieg for sexual assault. He’s attempted so much crime in such a short time that he’s basically an honorary Trump.
This week, Wohl struck again. And by “struck” I intend” made a complete chump of himself “. On Thursday Wohl and Jack Burkman, another republican activist, held a “press conference” in which they claimed Elizabeth Warren, 70, paid under the sexual services of a 24 -year-old former marine called Kelvin Whelly.” These costs will offend the conscious of the commonwealth ,” a media release that went out before the phenomenon predicted. Yes, that’s right, these geniuses managed to misspell ” shame “.
Standing in front of a big sign emblazoned with the words” Elizabeth Warren Cougar ?” on it, the senator’s alleged boytoy kept on cracking up as he predicted his statement. In between giggles he claimed that he had been hired by Warren from a gigolo enterprise announced Cowboys4Angels for frequent discussions of BDSM. Whelly then taken away from his shirt to show off a blemish he says was the result of Warren lash him.
I don’t think I need to tell you that Whelly’s story is entirely made-up. Nonetheless, merely in case you had any indecisions, the owner and CEO of Cowboys4Angels says Whelly never worked for his agency and was ” not up to caliber” to get a job as a gigolo.” I would never even hire that guy ,” he told Rolling Stone. An offend which , no doubt, stung far harder than Warren’s imaginary whip ever did.
Warren, incidentally, reacted to the fact that a ugly far-right troll has been writing bad lascivious fanfic about her in very best, most presidential, highway possible.
” It’s always a good day to be reminded that I came where I am because a great education was available for $ 50 a semester at the University of Houston( extend Cougars !),” Warren tweeted on Thursday.” We need to cancel student debt and form college free for everyone who wants it .” This was accompanied with a big picture of the Houston Cougars logo. #Cougar2020 immediately started tending.

Praise be, we finally know what The Handmaid’s Tale is about
A Canadian couple recently realise the moderately ludicrou preference of the integration of a Handmaid’s Tale-themed wedding photo into their bridals. Good-for-nothing says” eternal love”, after all, like an image of the fortunate duet kissing in front of a” hanging wall” surrounded by Handmaids who are raped and forced to bear brats. Anyway, the photo moved online the coming week and provoked predictable wrath. Now the photographers have weighed in to say the photo was not tasteless and weird, it was actually “ve been meaning to”” aftermath parties up” about the “oppression” in Margaret Atwood’s novel. Really brave of them to wake parties up like this. I don’t know about you but until I viewed that photo I was laboring under the delusion that the Handmaid’s Tale was a quirky romcom featuring a strong female lead.
