It’s not been a gentle couple of days for Joy Behar. Yesterday, Tulsi Gabbard paddled her keister. Today a straight white man and son of Literally Hitler, President Donald Trump, explained that we all make mistakes. Including Joy Behar who wore blackface. Then he pointed to Whoopi, who has defended Roman Polanski for saying his raping of an underage girl wasn’t “rape rape.” That’s when the ladies all summoned cauldrons for a festive cookout of their own making. Watch:

Also, here’s Joy Behar wearing dark makeup to make herself appear darker. Which I kind of thought was what blackface was, but obviously I’m just a stupid white person.

I guess if I just darkened my skin and put on a fro, then shared it on Instagram, I’d be fine. Surely. No problem. No one would dox me.
Donald Trump Jr.’s point was that every single person alive has done or said something they regret. Which is rather the problem with outrage and cancel culture, as Donald Trump Jr. was trying to point out amongst the loud cackling as the witches danced around the fire. No, that’s not a sexist joke. That’s a screechy liberal women piling on their guest to devour his man flesh, joke. I agree the line is rather a fine one. I’m at peace with it.
Anyway, Don Jr’s point is you can’t just wag your finger at people who’ve said things you don’t like, demanding their lives should be completely ruined, when you’ve also said and done questionable things yourself. Pretty sure there’s an adage about glass houses here.
As for discourse in politics, why wasn’t anyone concerned about this during the Clinton era when slut shaming was at its peak? Suddenly the left is all a tither about Trump labeling Mexican gang members as rapist monsters, but I don’t remember much media kerfuffle when Bill and Hillary Clinton tried ruining the lives of women Bill Clinton allegedly raped.
But you know, mean words > Democrats raping.
