Creep of the Week

As I write this, the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is on fire. It is a terrible loss to anyone who cares about history. Donald Trump’s response, however, was to tweet to try to tell French firefighters how to do their jobs. Trump probably sees the fire as a business opportunity. Maybe he dreams that the latest Trump Hotel will spring up in its place. 

Just in case it isn’t clear, Trump is a terrible person.

While scrolling through my Twitter feed, I stumbled upon a photo of Jonathan Van Ness walking hand in hand with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez through Capitol Hill. Van Ness, one of the stars of “Queer Eye,” was wearing a pink sweater and skirt, Ocasio-Cortez, a Democrat representing New York, was wearing a magenta pantsuit. Someone had tweeted, “THIS is the future Democrats want.” My first thought: Oh, hell yes. That future cannot come soon enough.

Van Ness, who was joined by three of his “Queer Eye” co-stars, also visited Nancy Pelosi’s office. But they weren’t there just for photo ops. The “Queer Eye” guys were in D.C. advocating for the passage of The Equality Act, which would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to prohibit discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation.

The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network’s annual Day of Silence is April 12, and you know what that means: Silence.

Well, sort of. The anti-LGBTQ right is always very vocal this time of year.

It sounds, well, pretty tame, to say the least. 

But to hear Linda Harvey tell it, the Day of Silence is a “weapon” in a “war on children.”

Well, the Mueller report is out and to hear Donald Trump tell it, the entire thing contained only a hand-lettered note on wide-ruled notebook paper that read, “I like you. Do you like me? Circle YES or NO.”

I, like many people, believe the entire report needs to be released. But I also never believed that Mueller alone could save us. Trump’s presidency is such a colossal mess that one man, even one man with a team of lawyers and a huge budget behind him, cannot save us.

Now Trump and his supporters feel vindicated, getting matching “NO COLLUSION” tattoos on their pasty white butt cheeks.

“Let’s get this party started.” That’s how Brenton Harrison Tarrant kicked off his live-stream video of his massacre at the first of two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

I want to say this: “It goes without saying that Tarrant is a vile person deserving of universal condemnation.” But I can’t. Because, in this world of ours, it sadly does not go without saying. There are plenty of people praising Tarrant and admiring his actions.
