'Students on Liberty's campus are forbidden from drinking alcohol, and are instructed to dress modestly. A poster on Reddit compiled Falwell Jr.'s potential violations in the yacht photograph and an accompanying video, and calculated that a student captured in the same scene could have accrued more than $9,000 in school fines and 900 hours of required service, and possible expulsion.

Faculty and alumni who have been critical of the school's direction under Falwell Jr. were both shocked and gratified by the news of his leave of absence. "For at least a decade, Liberty's faculty have labored under Falwell's increasingly autocratic leadership and been shamed by his public behavior besides," [...]

Falwell Jr. is the oldest son of the school's gleefully pugnacious founder, a fundamentalist pastor and conservative activist. Falwell Jr., a businessman with a law degree and no pastoral experience, took over the college when his father died in 2007. He has built the school into a sports powerhouse with a campus filled with luxury amenities, and conservative activists and politicians regularly speak there. The school now boasts more than 15,000 residential students, and more than 100,000 students online.

But Liberty has also been under almost constant national scrutiny since Falwell Jr. endorsed Donald Trump in early 2016, months earlier than other white evangelical leaders embraced the crude casino magnate's candidacy. Falwell Jr. began 2020 by calling for parts of Virginia to secede from the state and join West Virginia. As the coronavirus crisis encroached, Falwell Jr. initially dismissed it as "hype," and called a Liberty parent who questioned him on Twitter a "dummy." He was then criticized for welcoming back any students who wanted to return to campus after spring break. (Fewer than 2,000 of 15,000 residential students ultimately returned, and Liberty has avoided any outbreaks.) In May, Falwell Jr. tweeted a racist image in an attempt to needle Virginia governor Ralph Northam. [...]

The yacht photo was different. It was the first time a significant number of prominent white conservative evangelicals have publicly criticized Falwell Jr.

[...] "Why did the board decide this was the last straw? Because of a photo that made them uncomfortable, and the following public humiliation. They allowed everything up until that point. Liberty's board has shown us that their only public convictions relate to alcohol and sex."'

The Johnathan Swan memes from the Trump interview have been good for some chuckles.

'New York Times: White House reached out to South Dakota governor about adding Trump to Mount Rushmore

White House aides reached out to South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem last year about the process of adding additional presidents to Mount Rushmore, the New York Times reported.

According to a person familiar who spoke with the Times, Noem then greeted Trump when he arrived in the state for his July Fourth celebrations at the monument with a four-foot replica of Mount Rushmore that included his face.

Noem has noted before Trump's "dream" to have his face on Mount Rushmore'

'“The closest thing is in 1917, they say, the great pandemic. It certainly was a terrible thing where they lost anywhere from 50 to 100 million people,” Trump said. “Probably ended the second World War, all the soldiers were sick.”'

'Sarah Palin Has Some Advice for Kamala Harris

[..."] Climb upon Geraldine Ferraro's and my shoulders, and from the most amazing view in your life consider lessons we learned [...] Trust no one new.

[...] Some yahoos running campaigns will suffocate you with their own self-centered agenda so remember YOU were chosen for who YOU are

[...] So stay connected with America as you smile

[... McCain] had some strange people around him"'

https://www.thedaily...f=home?ref=home

'Trump campaign officials said they expect to be called sexist, so they are embracing attacks painting Harris as "power hungry" and overly "ambitious."

"The playbook on Kamala is pretty simple [...] Right now the message on Biden—and it's the first effective frame the campaign has sustained on Biden—is that he's an empty shell for the radical left. Kamala Harris is a power-hungry politician. She comes across as ruthless. So it's a believable frame that she'd be running the administration for empty shell Joe Biden."'

"Not long ago, Kamala Harris called Joe Biden a racist and asked for an apology she never received," Trump campaign senior adviser Katrina Pierson said in a statement. "Clearly, Phony Kamala will abandon her own morals[..."...] In fact, Harris specifically said she was not calling Biden a racist in that first Democratic debate last year.

[...] Trump is still workshopping "effective nicknames" for Biden's now-announced running mate, a source with direct knowledge said.

The Team Trump video goes on to mock "Slow Joe" for not being "smart" enough to reject her[...]

Trump[...] called Harris "nasty" during his daily press conference and rambled for several minutes [...] "I thought she was the meanest, the most horrible, most disrespectful of anybody in the U.S. Senate," he said.'

https://www.thedaily...hungry?ref=home

'"All they're waiting for, and China too, is that I'm defeated. Because if I'm defeated, China will own the United States," Trump bellowed. After wondering aloud whether Biden's team is engaging in "backchannel talks" with China, Trump added: "If I don't win the election, China will own the United States—you will have to learn to speak Chinese!"'

'It doesn't rhyme, it's not alliterative, and "phony" is a generic insult. [...]

But "Phony Kamala" isn't the only Harris insult the right has cooked up -- it's just the one that's intended for mass consumption. Here's what right-wingers call Harris when they think we're not listening:

[...] "Mattress Kamala" is what your right-wing relatives will be calling her soon, if they aren't already. We'll see whether Trump or any of his surrogates try to take the nickname mainstream. At the very least, I'm sure it will show up in the Facebook posts of a few red-state GOP county leaders in the near future.'

'“Sleepy Joe rejects the scientific approach in favor of locking all Americans in their basements for months on end,” Trump said. He claimed Biden, who he said is using an “anti-science” approach, wants to “grind society to a halt” in a shutdown that would drive people to suicide. “To Joe, I would say stop playing politics with the virus. It’s a shameful situation for anybody to try and score political points while we’re working to save lives,” he said, after spending an inordinate amount of time at a briefing ostensibly about the country’s COVID-19 battle bashing his Democratic rival.'

If you are low on this week's quota of pull out your hair frustration and anger, look up Louis DeJoy. He was appointed the Postmaster General in May. He's quite the gem.

Bonus anger/frustration component: he's got one of them enticingly, irresistible desire to punch, punch-able faces.

'Furious Trump Supporters Are Calling On 'The Simpsons' To Be Canceled After Marge Spoke Out

After Joe Biden unveiled California Senator Kamala Harris as his Vice Presidential nominee for the 2020 elections, senior White House legal consultant Jenna Ellis sounded off on Twitter with a typically dignified response.

Well, a Trump administration version of dignified.

"Kamala sounds like Marge Simpson."

A couple days later, The Simpsons released a video of Marge Simpson responding to the insult.

[...]

"I usually don't get into politics, but the President's senior advisor Jenna Ellis just said Kamala Harris sounds like me."

"Lisa says she doesn't mean it as a compliment. If that's so, as an ordinary suburban housewife, I'm starting to feel a little disrespected. I teach my children not to name call, Jenna."'
