Rate These Kavanaugh Faces: From Boofed to Let Me Speak to Your Manager

Rate These Kavanaugh Faces: From Boofed to Let Me Speak to Your Manager

It must be nice to be a white man.

Thursday was arguably one of the whitest white-man moments in the history of white man-ism.

It was white mantastic.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, a white man, literally walked into the jar of mayonnaise called the Senate Judiciary Committee and told the interviewers to go fuck themselves.

And, even though he told the Knights of the White Table to go...

Brett Kavanaugh and America's Insistence on White Male Virtue

Brett Kavanaugh and America's Insistence on White Male Virtue

Let’s start with the laughter: how it was the thing that Christine Blasey Ford remembered best.

During a confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, in a marathon session that ran more than three hours, Blasey Ford recounted how Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh, then a 17-year-old, sexually assaulted her at a high school party.

“Indelible in the...

Head of Senate Committee Wants to Release Transcripts of Interviews With Trump Jr. and Others Involved in Russian-Lawyer Meeting

Head of Senate Committee Wants to Release Transcripts of Interviews With Trump Jr. and Others Involved in Russian-Lawyer Meeting

Well, what do you know? It looks as if the Senate Judiciary Committee, which conducted interviews with everyone involved in a 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower in New York City—with the alleged aim of getting damaging information about Hillary Clinton—would like to make those interviews public, and I’m all here for it.

For one reason: The meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia...

Kamala Harris, Cory Booker Appointed to Senate Judiciary Committee 

Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.) were appointed to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. This is only the second time in the 201-year history of the committee that anyone black has served on it, and the first time there have been two black people on the committee at once. Mark this down on your calendars.

According to the Washington Post, Harris—who is a former...

Brett Talley, Louis C.K., The Root 100 and the Whitest Week Ever

Brett Talley, Louis C.K., The Root 100 and the Whitest Week Ever

This week, while scrolling through Twitter, I ran across a video of author, explainer of blackness, and one of my picks to send in our delegation when the aliens arrive and ask black America to “take us to your leader,” Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Coates was speaking at a high school when a student asked him to explain why white people should refrain from using the n-word.

While Coates’...

This Should Be Good: Donald Trump Jr. to Testify in Front of Senate Panel 

This Should Be Good: Donald Trump Jr. to Testify in Front of Senate Panel 

Donald Trump Jr. is not a fool, but he is an idiot; there is a difference. A fool will give all his money to a man who promises to bring him back gold. An idiot will give the man all of his money and drive him home with the promise of said gold to be mailed to him later in the week after the man cashes his check at the liquor store two bus rides away from town.

A fool can be made whole again....

FBI Director Comey Says the Idea That He Helped Trump Win Makes Him Nauseous

James Comey, the 6-foot-8-inch Sasquatch masquerading as the director of the FBI, is on Capitol Hill all day testifying at the Senate Judiciary Committee’s oversight hearing of the Justice Department. While this is usually a routine, annual hearing, on Wednesday, Comey spent much of his time defending himself against Hillary Clinton’s statements Tuesday that she lost because of his...
