Sen. Jefferson Beauregard Sessions: What sexual assault?

Mike Pence & Jeff Sessions

“Why, we just call that an Alabama howdy!”

Interviewed in the spin room after the presidential debate in St. Louis, in which Trump brushed off the comments as “locker room talk,” the Alabama senator noted that the real estate mogul already apologized for his “very improper language.”

“But beyond the language, would you characterize the behavior described in that as sexual assault if that behavior actually took place?” the Weekly Standard asked.

“I don’t characterize that as sexual assault,” Sessions replied. ”I think that’s a stretch. I don’t know what he meant—“

“So if you grab a woman by the genitals, that’s not sexual assault?” the Weekly Standard pressed.

“I don’t know. It’s not clear that he—how that would occur.”

You just grab them by the whatever and yell, “HOWDY!”

So sad

And I think it had a lot more to do with being a woman than with her being a doctor. I heard stories like this all the time — and remember, many moons ago, my HMO primary doctor disregarded EVERY SINGLE SYMPTOM I had for Lyme disease, and put me on Prozac instead.

So it kind of irks me when I get these weird neurological and cardiac symptoms that may or may not be related to 20+ years of untreated Lyme. No point to asking doctors anymore — they don’t know, and can’t really test. Because once the spirochete digs into your organs, it doesn’t show up on tests and they can only tell with an autopsy. Whee!

A GP who died from a rare form of kidney cancer has warned of the difficulties doctors face in getting treatment for themselves, in an emotional blog published posthumously.

Dr Lisa Steen described her anger at colleagues for failing to go the extra mile to help identify the disease and for dismissing her as a hypochondriac, in the essay published on

The 43-year-old mother-of-two from Cambridge wrote of spending “two years wandering in the wilderness of the medically unexplained” before finally being diagnosed in July 2014, by which time the cancer had spread to her bones. She died in February.

Joy Reid does it again! ‘That smear on Planned Parenthood cannot go forward’

On Rachel- Joy Reid speaks out.
Joy Reid is one of the few decent journalists on cable:

Joy Ann-Reid is my hero of the week — again. This time, she shut down right-wing Trump apologist Alfonso Aguilar, who spent the entire 7-minute segment pretending that Donald Trump doesn’t mean to be racist; it just comes out that way. And then Aguilar showed his own true colors, when he barked about Margaret Sanger at… Continue Reading →

10-year-old kid yells ‘Take that bitch down’ at Trump rally


At Donald Trump’s rally in Ashburn, Virginia today, things happened that I would never imagine happening during a general election. He booted a baby, accepted someone’s purple heart, and then this happened: A little kid is yelling “Take the bitch down!” when Trump mentions Hillary Clinton. A little kid. No more than 10, I would say.… Continue Reading →
