    Now that Bill Shine has left FOX for the White House, his wife has deleted her racist Twitter account.

    The wife of Bill Shine — former Fox News co-president who just joined the Trump administration as White House communications chief — has a lengthy history of defending racists, promoting unfounded anti-vaccination conspiracies, writing about “Islamic Insanity,” and making racially-charged remarks on her social media pages.

    Darla Shine made these remarks primarily on her Twitter account, @darlashine, which was deleted as soon as the White House announced that her husband was officially joining the Trump administration.

    But not before Mediaite took screenshots.

    She thinks people think of housewives as "hags" and says she wants to change that. Her tweets aren't helping. "Hag" would be a kind description for someone who blurts out that kind of bilge.

    Though you have to credit her nerve. At FOX she'd have been something of a progressive.

    Yo, anna, where is that link to that image of that guy on the ground who's collapsed from the stress of attempting to defend Trump without having to deflect to "well, Obama, Clinton, the Democrats..."

    Thanks,

    D

    Never mind. I found it.

    Sent it to various people.

    What I did is text the question "Yo, _____ have you heard of the latest national emergency?"

    Most said no, and wanted to know more.

    At which point I sent them the image.



    Most had a good laugh.

    Not most of the Trump drones, though.

    Typical response just to the question itself?

    Something among the line of "I don't listen or watch fake news so of course I heard nothing. Everything is going wonderful America including another real judge for Supreme Court. Making America great again!"

    In other words, a deflection, lol

    Which only added the hilarity when I then sent them the image, and they failed to get the irony.

    Trump drones are very funny.

    An interesting choice that apparently isn't making the right ecstatic, though he's another able jurist. What I know of him as an individual is admirable. What I've read of him from the bench is considered, even in difference. He numbers liberals and conservatives among those who like and esteem him, personally and professionally. While I have some serious differences with him and I think there will be difficulty in the process from left and right, he's a solid choice to help set a lasting conservative tone for the Court.

    Every time I see that I get a chuckle out of it. (I did check to make sure it wasn't a photo of a real emergency, and it's a stock photo so I don't feel bad about chuckling.)

    It's true, isn't it? The vast majority of Trump defense is based on those three. Not about whether what Trump has said or done is good for the country, or justifiable, or follows the rule of law or is a whopper of a lie or whatever - but whether or not he did it better or different or he was appropriately justifiable compared to that terrible triad.

    He has been too vigorous with support for expansive presidential powers, for one. He's a philosophical originalist, for another. And he's been leaning the wrong way on gun control in large part because of that philosophical base. As a younger lawyer he once championed the notion of invading attorney client privilege, which gives me some concerns regarding his potential handling of speech and press matters, especially coupled with the originalist positioning. I'm sure of his mettle, but I'm not at all settled on how it could impact a host of issues.

    Of course, he's given the right some pause as well.

    Thanks, I appreciate that. I've posted on a different thread a link to his article in the Minnesota Law Review on separation of powers, and am in the process of reading it now - in particular the section proposing protecting the sitting president from investigations. If you don't have that link, here it is:

    I've never heard of him, but here's what CNN said of him, "Citing a previous high court ruling, Kavanaugh went on to say, "It follows from Heller's protection of semi-automatic handguns that semi-automatic rifles are also constitutionally protected and that DC's ban on them is unconstitutional.""

    That doesn't mean much about his view of the Second Amendment, it merely suggests the man's fair in his thinking, regardless of any agenda he may or may not possess. That's valuable.
