AOC Joins Impeachment Resolution After The Mueller Report

Long before the public release of the Mueller report, Democrats knew that impeachment create a trove of political uncertainties and explosions. Still, freshman members of Congress including Freshman New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez say that the contents of the newly released report call for Congress to investigate whether Trump made attempts obstruct justice.

The Democratic congresswoman says that Mueller’s report has left a new priority “on our doorstep.”

Ocasio-Cortez, who had not made impeaching Trump a priority amongst her proposals for her Green New resolution and Medicare for All on her campaign, says Mueller’s report is a call to Congress. In a response to the 448-page long report, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that “While I understand the political reality of the Senate + election considerations, upon reading this DoJ report, which explicitly names Congress in determining obstruction, I cannot see a reason for us to abdicate from our constitutionally mandated responsibility to investigate.”

As a result, Ocasio-Cortez says she will sign Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s impeachment resolution which she introduced last month.

“Mueller’s report is clear in pointing to Congress’ responsibility in investigating obstruction of justice by the President. It is our job as outlined in Article 1, Sec 2, Clause 5 of the US Constitution,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “As such, I’ll be signing onto [Rep. Rashida Tlaib]’s impeachment resolution.”

In the report conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the ways in which the president attempted to block the investigation into the Russian government’s role in his 2016 presidential campaign are outlined in full.

While Mueller detailed some pretty damning information, he did not outrightly say that Trump had committed obstruction of justice and wrote that he would let the decision of raising any charges to Congress.

In his report, Mueller writes “With respect to whether the President can be found to have obstructed justice by exercising his powers under Article II of the Constitution, we concluded that Congress has the authority to prohibit a President’s corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice.”

Tlaib’s resolution and the issue of impeachment is unlikely to gain traction with the Democratic leadership, who are more interested in defeating Trump in the 2020 presidential election. Instead, they are attempting to hear directly from Mueller. “As we continue to review the report,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a joint statement, “one thing is clear: Attorney General Barr presented a conclusion that the president did not obstruct justice while Mueller’s report appears to undercut that finding.”

The Roasts About This Latina Who Challenged Reddit to Troll Her ‘Big Head’ Are Pretty Dang Brutal

Reddit.com

A brave Latina took to Reddit on Wednesday purely with the intent of having her fellow Redditors make fun of her.

The young woman posted her picture on Reddit’s r/RoastMe subreddit, a community dedicated to telling jokes at other people’s expense.

The subreddit insists that the roasting should all be done in good fun, with rules against users’ comments crossing the line into abuse or threatening language. The subreddit says it’s a place for everyone to “laugh at themselves’.

According to the community’s guidelines, the roastee is required to upload a picture of themselves holding a note that says “Roast Me” to provide evidence that they, indeed, consent to the public roasting.

Reddit user u/gabycarrill0 appeared to be game for a little public humiliation, uploading a picture of herself to the subreddit with the heading: “Roast my big head while I wait for my twin in the Target parking lot.”

Reddit user gabycarrill0’s post quickly became popular, amassing 13K up-votes and almost 2,000 comments

In fact, u/gabycarrill0’s roasting thread became so popular, it made the front page of the website–a sign that it was one of the posts on the website that was drawing the most views and engagement.

Reddit users spared no expense poking fun at the brave young woman.

The roasts on the thread largely consisted at jokes aimed at u/gabycarrill0’s love of makeup. Quite a few Redditors wrote jokes implying that she goes overboard in beating her face.

Reddit user richards_86 wrote: “I can just imagine waking up, rolling over and seeing your face on my pillow, even hours after you’ve left.”

Another joke about u/gabycarrill0’s made-up face was from user u/Itroll4love, who quipped, “She’s got more cake on that face than a bakery”.

User u/iquimo said that she “must apply her foundation with a crop duster,” while u/Fetid_Dingo_Kidneys said: “Target’s cosmetics department would like to thank you for keeping them in business during these hard times”.

Some jokes seemed to be completely random, but pretty funny nonetheless.

For example, u/Potato3WaysYou told u/gabycarrill0: “You look like you belong in a Vagisil commercial”, which had over one thousand up-votes.

User RedSnapper45 told her that her face “screams ‘I don’t have any useful life skills'” and user u/-bout-tree-fitty said “I hate seeing people leaving their dogs in the car. It’s so inhumane!”

Surprisingly, the young woman took all of the jokes in stride, even responding to some of them.

In response to the joke that held her responsible for keeping Target’s cosmetics department in business, u/gabycarrill0 cleverly responded: “Taking one for the team!”.

We wish we were as comfortable with ourselves as this brave as this young Latina! We’re happy she felt confident enough to take so many jokes at her expense with a smile on her face the whole time.
