our President told a trans immigrant activist to be quiet during a statement about Pride Week
no analogy here, I’m sure
she is an undocumented trans woman from mexico and her name is Jennicet Gutiérrez. obama not only told her to be quiet, but he had her escorted from the white house by secret service officers while his mindless supporters cheered.
okay but she did actually interrupt obama while he was speaking. like i get that
being an actual non-white lgbt+ individual, her voice needs to be heard (and i fully support her cause and intentions), but there’s a time and place for everything and she literally interrupted the president of the united states while he was speaking
plus she said she had to voice her concerns when he “started to get into his speech on how wonderful everything is,” but she countered by chanting “not one more” and “stop the deportations”. as a fellow mexican, i can respect her fighting the good fight for our people but what exactly does her chanting protest slogans do for us in this situation? you really think he’s gonna stop his pride week speech to hold a discussion with her about these subjects in front of an entire crowd of guests?
nice way to twist the situation to paint obama as some transphobic villain though, love the way you leave it vague enough to make people assume that he was in the wrong
ps: in case u guys didn’t know, this is Jim Obergefell, the named plaintiff in the case that just made gay marriage LEGAL for EVERYBODY IN AMERICA. His husband and partner of 21 years, John Arthur, died of complications from ALS while they were fighting for their home state of Ohio to recognize the validity of their marriage (which took place in Maryland). The Obergefell case centers on Jim’s right to be recognized on his terminally-ill husband’s death certificate. That’s John in the photo. Jim is still carrying it on CNN right now.
“Running of the interns outside the Supreme Court 6/26/2015″
LET ME FURTHER ELABORATE ON THE HILARITY OF THE BEST AMERICAN POLITICAL PRACTICE TO EXIST, “THE ANNUAL RUNNING OF THE INTERNS”:
RECORDINGS ARE NOT ALLOWED INSIDE THE U.S. SUPREME COURT. SO WHEN A DECISION IS MADE, COPIES ARE HANDED TO MEMBERS OF THE PRESS INSIDE THE BUILDING IN A PRESS ROOM WHO THEN LEAVE THEIR ROOM TO HAND THE COPIES OF THE RULING TO THEIR INTERNS (WHO AREN’T ALLOWED INSIDE THE PRESS ROOM)
(PICTURED: INTERNS FROM 2013, WAITING FOR THEIR RUN)
AND THEN THE INTERNS HAVE TO DELIVER THE COURT RULINGS WHILE THE JUSTICES ARE ANNOUNCING THEIR DECISION INSIDE THE COURTROOM ITSELF.
SO THE INTERNS RUN THROUGH THE SUPREME COURT BUILDING FROM OUTSIDE THE PRESS ROOM TO OUTSIDE, ACROSS THE PAVED WALKWAYS, AND DOWN THE STAIRS OF THE COURTHOUSE AREA INTO THE BROADCASTING PRESS PEN IN THE STREET.
(A PREVIOUS YEAR’S INTERN RUN WINNER)
INTERNS ARE TOLD THEY MAY TO THROW SOME ELBOWS IF NECESSARY.
AND ALL ARE RACING TO BE THE FIRST TO DELIVER THE COURT RULINGS TO THEIR RESPECTIVE BROADCASTERS WHO ARE WAITING TO GO ON AIR
PICTURED IN FRONT IS YESTERDAY’S INTERN WINNER LAUREN WHO SAID SHE “JUST LIKED TO WIN” WHEN SHE PULLED CLEAR AHEAD TO DELIVER THE OBAMACARE RELATED DECISION.
KEEP IN MIND THE DECISIONS READ ON THE BENCH ARE POSTED ONLINE A FEW MINUTES LATER SO THIS WHOLE PROCESS CURRENTLY EXISTS BECAUSE NO ONE WANTS TO WAIT THAT LONG.
TRULY A GREAT AND HILARIOUS AMERICAN TRADITION.
