Bill Donohue

Blowhard Bill Donohue, the over-pampered head of the Catholic League, has a new pronouncement: “BOYCOTT BURGER KING.〃 (Blowhard Bill likes all-caps).

I have yet to figure out what this guy really does. The head of a Catholic organization is a divorced man. A current tax return is not available (I shall inquire) but in 2015 Donohue received $540 thousand in compensation (including $57K in non-taxable benefits). That is an enormous amount of untaxed benefits and a very substantial salary for an organization with a $3 million budget and about a dozen employees.

What is pissing off Blowhard Bill is Samantha Bee’s show Full Frontal on TBS:

Our objections are grounded in her relentless assaults on Catholics and her use of the “c-word” to describe the president’s daughter.

Samantha Bee appears to be Catholic herself. I have not watched the show but I suspect that she is criticizing the Church. So what? Most Catholics are sane and supportive of, for example, LGBT people. They use contraceptives and if their 14-year-old gets knocked up by Uncle Friendly, she is probably going to have an abortion. Then there is that whole pedophile priest thing. There is lots to criticize when it comes to the Church.

As for calling Ivanka a cunt she deserves the opprobrium because Daddy is a dick and she is an enabler. Maybe if her husband, do-nothing Jared, does some jail time courtesy of Mr. Mueller, she will gain insight into honesty. It’s a tough one because daddy tells on average about seven lies per day.

As for Burger King they refuse to obey Donohue’s directive to cease advertising on Full Frontal. Bill is beyond outrage. He claims that several companies have yielded but there is no way to tell if they stopped advertising for the current quarter or because they found the ads ineffective or any of a number of reasons. I certainly would not obey a bunch of religious yahoos. And by the way, Burger King might simply have a contractual commitment into the current quarter.

I think that Blowhard Bill Donohue makes noise because he has nothing better to do. Perhaps he can find a fire hydrant and lift his leg.
