JOE.MY.GOD.: Hillary Clinton was right about a LOT. Please let her be wrong in saying that Trump will run in '24. But if she's right, PLEASE, let's send him packing for good by defeating him no matter the other choice.

L.A. TIMES: Young people of color are dying of COVID-19 at a much faster clip than young white people are, especially Latinos.
REUTERS: It is mind-boggling to me that a publicist working with Kanye West sought out a woman who was an election official in Georgia, tried to pressure her to say there was election fraud (when there wasn't) — and did so IN FRONT OF APPROVING GEORGIA COPS. We only know about this because of the cops' body cameras. I saw someone saying of the steel-willed election official — and older Black woman — that she represented another Black woman safeguarding democracy from white meddling. Well, Trump is white, but West and his publicist are Black. It's spreading.

While we're at it on the topic of Madonna and AIDS, if Nancy Reagan calls ... I'm not here. From "Encyclopedia Madonnica 20." pic.twitter.com/Eydyb06AJ6— Matthew Rettenmund (@mattrett) December 11, 2021
TWITTER: For some reason, Ben Shapiro's right-wing sister, who advocates for women to go back to being feminine and submissive, felt it was wise to compare Madonna unfavorably to Nancy Reagan. This has led to a couple of solid days' worth (just so far) of sniping about Reagan's BJ rep and shortcomings as a human being, vs. Madonna's advocacy for queer and AIDS visibility. I mean, who'd want to be Nancy when you could be Madonna?
NBC NEWS: Jussie Smollett's craven lie does not mean anti-queer and racist violence doesn't exist. You'd think this would go without saying, but many right-wingers (and even conservagays, who hate themselves so much) will never admit that gay hate crimes happen, that they increased under Trump, and that Trump did his best to weaken LGBTQ rights — not least of all by nominating anti-queer Supreme Court justices, some of whom this week teased the end of same-sex marriage while teasing the imminent end of abortion as a national right.
