Congressmen Steve Scalise & Hakeem Jeffries Respond to N. Korea Releasing Americans

Congressmen Steve Scalise and Hakeem Jeffries might be on different sides of the aisle, but they both agree — it’s a good deal when North Korea gives us what we want. Both Representatives were on Capitol Hill Wednesday, when we asked if President…

Derick Dillard: Most Americans Are Bigots, Just Like Me!

Back in November, Derick Dillard was fired from his in-laws’ reality show in connection with a series of shockingly transphobic tweets he posted about fellow TLC reality star Jazz Jennings.

Derick’s bosses at the network were clearly hesitant to give him the ax, and they offered him several chances to apologize.

Dillard refused, and instead chose to continue bullying Jennings on social media, referring to the teen as “brainwashed” and reiterating his view that she stars in a reality show that “represents an unreality.”

In the months since Derick was canned from Counting On, he’s made several efforts to weasel his way back on the air, all the while refusing to simply apologize for his unprovoked attack on a teenage girl.

First, Derick claimed he wasn’t fired at all.

Then he claimed the decision to leave the show was his and that his wife, Jill Duggar, would be leaving the show along with him.

Now, he seems to have finally reached the acceptance stage, but he’s still twisting the narrative to suit his needs.

These days, Derick is rebranding himself as a First Amendment freedom fighter, the brave spokesman for a silent majority that exists solely in his mind.

As In Touch Weekly points out Derick has been defending his comments in social media conversations with fans that shed light on how highly he thinks of himself.

“I’m glad Derick was fired from Counting On. Enough is enough with all of his nonsense,” a fan commented on one of the Duggars’ Instagram posts this week.

The remark prompted this curious reply from Dillard:

“My view is no different than most Americans, but I just mentioned it…” 

So … he has been fired?

Like, you can’t play the “I was canned because of my views!” card in one breath and still insist that you left the show by choice in the next.

That’s not how being a bigoted martyr works.

Also, what is this “most Americans” nonsense?

Did Derick travel the country polling people about their views on Jazz Jennings.

We doubt it. Otherwise, he likely would have found that most people have no ill will toward Jazz, but do harbor very strong views about Derick Dillard showing up at their door unannounced.
