Editor’s Note: While the media and other leftist elites ignore the millions of folks living in “flyover” states, they do so at their own peril; it was this silent majority that put President Trump in the White House. Each week, Liberty Nation gives voice to the hard-working heartlanders who are silent no more.
As Democrats scrambled to make their number one guy into a programmable hologram that won’t sniff, grope, or insert the word “intercourse” in every rambling statement, flyover folks took a Biden breather. Circling back to seemingly forgotten non-pandemic news, Jeffrey Epstein and a presidential campaign upended were the most engaging subjects in flyover states.
It was another week of pandering, woke pansies, and global perverts.
In the span of a dozen days, sort of presidential aspirant Kanye West (I-?) threw shade at the real President Donald Trump. He then filleted the Democratic Party over abortion and Planned Parenthood and shook his head over the number of times candidate Joe Biden erroneously said “intercourse.” After making the rounds with cable newsies, Kanye, through a spokesperson, dropped out.
On July 14, Kanye’s campaign guy, Steve Kramer, proclaimed, “He’s out,” to New York magazine. A day later, the West campaign filed a Statement of Organization with the Federal Election Commission.
Isn’t 2020 a gas so far?
Flyover folks think so. Between dodging bullets, Antifa thugs, and protesters, one Chicagoan, Richard Armstrong, emerged perplexed: “Already? What am I going to do with all these yard signs?”
Most folks gave Kanye the benefit of the doubt in his decision to bail out. West, who seemingly ditched high school civics class, was woefully undereducated for the task at hand. But others suggested that West should self-commit to an insane asylum. Or, as Julian James in Dayton, OH, said, “Kanye West should be viewed as a cautionary tale about the real necessity of mental health reform in this country.”
Bless his heart.
The recent arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell, the girlfriend of late financier Jeffrey Epstein, is fresh in the minds of heartlanders. But this week, the spotlight was adjusted to shine bright on those Hollyweird types, famous for marrying someone famous, who allegedly was tight with Epstein and company. Chrissy Teigen, the wife of musician John Legend, is a chatty girl, not able to resist sniping at conservatives. But this week, it was alleged Teigen had ties to Epstein and Maxwell, prompting a backlash of epic proportions. Basically, she put her stilettos in a fresh and steaming pile of her own creation.
Folks pounced on the news of the purported relationship, prompting Mrs. Legend to take to Twitter: “I have never even met the man. Or been to the island. Or on the plane.”
But the Twitter mob went all in reposting damaging tweets Teigen made, including this gem in 2011: “Seeing little girls do the splits half-naked is just … I want to put myself in jail.” And she wonders why folks think her secret bestie may be Ghislaine?
Mobbed, Teigen removed a million followers and deleted 60,000 damning tweets, ranging from child abuse to other nasty “I’m so clever” messages. She reached out to beg Twitter to stop the harassment: “I have block chained over one million people, ONE MILLION people today and I am still flooded with sick psychopaths.” Imagine how Trump feels.
Flyover folks do not tolerate perverts — alleged or obvious — and being famous only adds to the angst of breathing the same air. Sharon Hinchee in Topeka, KS, observed, “She supports Biden, so birds of a feather.”
But Teigen is simply a symptom of the disease that wearing a mask and washing hands will not clean up and prevent. Middle America wants to see everyone involved with Epstein exposed and removed from society– no matter bank account, religion, or political party affiliation.
And flyover folks anxiously await Ghislaine, her secret husband, and the immunity-granted victims to start singing. In an election year, no one wants this kind of October surprise.
