You follow the antics of AOC and the so-called "Squad" of hers and you wonder if the Left has lost its mind. Your instincts are correct. And if it's any comfort to them, they're not alone. In fact there are even loonier elements loose among the elites.
Could the term "Larval Scalias" become an internet meme embraced by both the left and the right? It started out as a result of a fit of anger by Esquire's Charles Pierce over the rapid pace of conservative judges appointed by the Trump administration but it might ironically end up as tribute to the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
Taylor Swift may have stirred up some “Bad Blood” with social justice warriors for not being sufficiently woke in her new pro-LGBT song. On Friday the pop star released the lyric video to the single “You Need to Calm Down” and on Monday she released the official music video which appears to take place in a gay, rainbow-themed trailer park and features dozens of (mostly) LGBT celebrity cameos.
Samuel L. Jackson just loves using his Hollywood-manufactured tough guy image to throw his weight around the political scene. This time the “bad motherf***ker” handed down his judgement of all the people who haven’t got on the #resistance train, insisting that if people aren’t bashing Donald Trump then they’re “complicit” and that’s “not fucking okay.”
How shallow are liberal journalists? Ted Cruz's new beard looks really good and Esquire managing editor Ben Boskovich is upset about that. See, he finds it easier to hate the clean-shaven Cruz and now that the Texas senator is looking better in his opinion, that has thrown Boskovich for a loop.
Sometimes the journalistic fawning over Barack Obama crossed a line from sycophantic to just plain weird. Such was the case for the August 2011 issue of Esquire, featuring a headline wondering “How can we not love Obama?” Writer Stephan Marche described the Democrat as an “astounding, ecstatic human achievement” and a “world-historical soul.” Okay...
The editor-at-large of Esquire magazine flat out declares he wants to ban all guns. Liberals always seem to be declaring they only want bans or restrictions on certain types of guns. Added to that is their declaration of support for the Second Amendment. However, once in a while, one of those liberals lets their mask drop and makes their true intention known.
Esquire magazine writer Matt Miller doesn't like President Donald Trump. I get that. However, does he have to bring his Trump derangement into articles unrelated to him? An example is his February 21 story about one of the "Black Panther" actors, Winston Duke, who played the character of M'Baku. It took Miller just three paragraphs before his Trump obsession kicked in with gratuitous cheap shots.
Although most of the mainstream media are reluctant to concede that President Donald Trump has been on a win streak lately, we have confirmation of this from a rather unlikely source: Charles Pierce of Esquire magazine. The politics section writer has been in a perpetual state of rage ever since the 2016 election. There are five stages of grief but Pierce skipped most of them to go directly from anger until he now seems to have reached the stage of acceptance in which he very grudgingly concedes that Trump has been "normalized" by winning a series of victories recently in President* Trump's Normalization Is Complete:
Since Tuesday night, many lefty pundits have been mostly (though not completely) distracted from President Trump by Roy Moore’s win in Alabama’s Republican U.S. Senate primary. Their message: Just when you thought the GOP had hit bottom, the bottom dropped out. Two especially noteworthy commentaries came from Esquire’s Charles Pierce and New York’s Jonathan Chait.
Starring in movies about politics allegedly gives celebrities a political background. At least, that’s what Robert Redford thought in his latest interview.
Was Ronald Reagan the original Washington wizard? Esquire’s Charles Pierce seems to think so. Pierce argued on Wednesday that in the 1980s, an ideological “spell…was cast” by the Gipper and his allies, and that as a result of various right-wing policies enacted since then, Harvey-related damage to the Houston area will be a lot worse than it should have been. “The spell…was cast 30 years ago, when conservative movement politics pitched deregulation as a panacea,” wrote Pierce. “It was cast 30 years ago when conservative movement politics declared that important decisions on things like the environment and public health were better left to the states, despite the fact that many states, like Texas, were unable or unwilling to pay to do these jobs properly.”
