Appropriate This, Joy Reid

Joy Reid accuses Elon Musk of cultural appropriation (but not Elizabeth Warren?)

Hot Air–As Musk pointed out yesterday, he’s expecting a tax bill this year which will make him the single highest individual taxpayer in history. Reports suggest his bill could reach $15 billion. Of course Warren didn’t mention that because it’s hard to make a $15 billion tax bill jibe with calling someone a freeloader.

In any case, last night Joy Reid decided to weigh in on her show by naming Musk “The Absolute Worst.” I guess that’s a recurring segment on her show. I don’t know because even Elon Musk couldn’t pay me enough to watch it. But in addition to calling him a freeloader and referring to him as “junior bird man,” Reid also claimed that Musk was guilty of “misappropriating black vernacular.”

Texas Takin’ Out The Trash

O’Rourke announces bid to take on Greg Abbott in 2022 Texas gubernatorial race

CNN–Beto O’Rourke, the former congressman and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, on Monday launched his campaign to unseat Texas Gov. Greg Abbott in 2022.

“I’m running for governor,” he tweeted alongside a video announcement. “Together, we can push past the small and divisive politics that we see in Texas today — and get back to the big, bold vision that used to define Texas. A Texas big enough for all of us.”

In launching a campaign that many Democrats in Texas had identified as the party’s only chance of denying Abbott a third term, O’Rourke — an El Paso native and former punk rocker who launched an internet services company and served on the city council before being elected to Congress in 2011 — is making his third run for office in four years.

Beto O’Rourke: ‘Hell yes, we are going to take your AR-15’…Not gonna happen, Beto. Not now, not ever.
