Good News from the Resistance: At long last, a school shooting is hitting the NRA in the only place its members bleed: their wallets. Thanks in large part to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School survivor-activists like Emma Gonzales, companies are severing their NRA relationships as fast as a 19-year old can pull the trigger on an AR-15 assault rifle. In the last week, NRA’s ammosexual members lost their discounts on United and Delta airlines, National Bank of Omaha credit cards, Hertz, Avis, Budget and Enterprise car rentals, Met Life insurance, and more. Walmart announced it will no longer sell guns and ammo to anyone under 21, so teenagers shopping for party-packs of Cheetos and beer, who want to pick up a rifle too, will have to make an extra stop at a smaller gun store. Yes, these are baby steps. But there’s no denying that over the last few weeks, the national conversation on gun control has changed. Gun company stocks are plummeting, and Remington is filing for bankruptcy. Here’s hoping that other manufacturers follow Remington’s lead.
White House and agency appointees are scattering like an intrusion of roaches when the light’s flipped on, as an anti-45, “what the hell have we bought into?” wave builds. 45’s trusted 29-year-old advisor and White-Liar-in-Chief Hope Hicks is out, as is Senior White House spokesman and Ivanka confidant Josh Raffel. No one can blame the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico for calling it quits, and we can all feel the pain of the soon-to-be former deputy head of the Department of Homeland Security. Adios, ladies.
Keep that chin up and your spirits high, Good News seekers, because Mueller’s getting closer and and his net is getting tighter. Jared is slowly, torturously being destroyed, 45’s friends continue to worry, off-the-record, about his “well-being,” and the BEST NEWS yet — Mueller is subpoenaing all emails, texts, handwritten notes, etc. that ex-45 aide Sam Nunberg sent and received from 10 members of 45’s most Inner Circle. #3 on the list is certain to make you smile.
