A message to those who believe the fake news from FOX News:

Clothing company CEO says his company markets to Fox News viewers because they’re ‘f**king idiots’

Clothing company founder Scott Jordan of SCOTTeVEST made some widely criticized comments about his customers in a recent Facebook post by calling Fox News viewers, where the company “primarily advertises” its products, “extremely gullible and easier to sell than other networks.”

ScotteVest makes great clothing. I've been on their bandwagon for a decade. Glad to see the founder is a lefty:)

Love that Hank's reading The Blaze.

The vest guy was high on that ski lift:

"To those that I called gullible and idiotic, I am truly sorry.

As the founder of SCOTTeVEST, Inc., I have spent more than 17 years with the help of an amazing team building an awesome company with world class products and customer service. My idiotic statement not only jeopardized all of that hard work, but it also compromised the faith that SCOTTeVEST customers and our team of 20+ employees and contractors entrusted in me.

I also want to apologize to the SCOTTeVEST customer service team, who are taking the brunt of the backlash for my actions."

Never. He likes being a piece of shit. That's the comedy and tragedy of shit. It doesn't know how shitty it is. It thinks it's something else, like maybe one of those farts that clears a room but the perp thinks people won't know where it came from. It was you, Flanders. We all know. Ugh.

So. Lemme see if I understand. Twelve years ago, Wags and at least one other foron bemoaned the use of "fascist" and "nazi" in our modern dialogue.

At that time, Godwin's law was oft invoked. The underlying premise was that the words were being used on people who were not actually, nor supportive of, fascist or nazi groups, principles, or tenets.

Now that there exist people who ARE indeed supportive of groups and people who do indeed practice fascist and nazi beliefs and actions, those people are bringing up conversations from years ago before fascism and nazi behavior had entered our social mainstream.

They are annoyed that people are constantly pointing out their support for fascism, nazism, racism, intolerance, violence, abuse of power, and other decidedly non-Christian behaviors. So they bring up something from more than a decade ago and go "hey look there, you said you didn't like using that word. And here you are using it! Haw haw!"

Seems like it would be easier to just not support fascism.

You get it, Cad.
And it's not like I haven't already explained that several times. Ned's just a broken record because he knows I'm right. He is on the same team as actual Nazis. The same ones that endorsed the guy he voted for to be our president and who he continues to support and defend. He can quote me without context from here to eternity and nothing will change that fact. It's true, it's demonstrable, and it's sickening.

I 100% stand by what I said in 2006. As I explained elsewhere, it was all about not crying wolf. And I was right.
Today I'm not crying wolf. The wolves are here and it ain't like they're hiding. They're in plain sight, standing right next to Ned, who seemingly couldn't be happier about it.

Sean Hannity has been a strong defender of Trump and his personal attorney, Michael Cohen. Turns out that Cohen had only three legal clients in 2017 and so far in 2018. Trump, GOP fundraiser Elliott Broidy (both used Cohen as a fixer to quiet extramarital affairs) and Sean Hannity himself.

Two questions. What was Hannity trying to fix? And does the fees from only three clients make up all of Cohen's income? Maybe he has side hustles. If so, I hope he declared them on his 1040.

Hannity now says he didn't pay him. If not, who did? And why?

It is not true that the FoxNews.com website has zero coverage of the fact that Sean Hannity turned out to be Michael Cohen's mystery "third client".

You just have to dig a bit for it. Here are a few items that appear higher up on the page:

So many questions.

Since setting up his practice, Michael Cohen has had only three clients - Trump (hush money for women), the RNC's Broidy (hush money for a woman), and Hannity ("New York real estate").

Presumably, Sean Hannity is very rich and could pay a real lawyer to advise him about NY real estate law. Why would he hire an inexperienced solo lawyer from the worst law school in the country?

For that matter, why would hiring a lawyer to ask about NY real estate law be embarrassing? Why would Hannity insist that Cohen keep his name secret, and why would Cohen's own lawyers try so hard to get the court to allow him to do so?

Does this have anything to do with the allegations of "creepy and inappropriate behavior" by Hannity that surfaced last year? When Hannity's fellow right-wing pundit Debbie Schlussel raised that issue, she said:

"He's not going to sue me," Schlussel, who describes herself as "to the right of Attila the Hun," told NBC News later Monday. "It wouldn't be a smart idea. It he did, it could spur other people to come forward and he wouldn't want that."


Is "New York real estate" 2018's version of "hiking the Appalachian Trail"?
