MSNBC host Rachel Maddow called Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia “a troll” on tonight’s edition of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show.”
Maddow was referencing Justice Scalia’s declaration that the Voting Rights Act was evidence of the “perpetuation of racial entitlement,” a remark he made during a Wednesday’s hearing, at which Maddow was present.
Maddow took issue with Scalia’s suggestion that voting was something an individual was entitled to on the basis of his or her race.
“I think he knows how that sounds, and that’s the neat thing about being there in person, is you can see: Oh, actually, he’s a troll,” Maddow said to the applause of the studio audience.
“He knows it’s offensive. He knows he’s going to get a gasp from the court room, which he got. And he loves it,” Maddow continued. “He’s like the guy on your blog comment thread who is using the N-word — ‘Oh did I make you mad? Did I make you mad? Did I make you mad?’ — he’s like that.”
An Indonesian woman drowned her nine-year-old son in the bath, claiming she was worried that his “small penis” would affect his prospects for the future, a police spokesman said Thursday.
The 38-year-old woman from the capital Jakarta told police her son had had a small penis prior to being circumcised, but that it appeared to shrink further after the operation, police spokesman Rikwanto, who goes by one name, told AFP.
“She told police investigators that she killed him as he would have a bleak future with his small penis,” Rikwanto said.
“She drowned her son in a bathtub filled with water. She then dressed him and laid him on a bed. After that, she went to a nearby police office to report her crime.”
Rikwanto said the woman was fully conscious of what she had done, but police ordered a psychological test to assess her mental condition.
