Damn, we knew the Democrats liked to whine and cry like newborn babies, but we didn’t realize that they shared…other things in common with the infant population.
Apparently, though, the liberals behind one absorbent underwear line know something that we don’t. THINX and Icon, the companies who produce both a line of adult diapers for bladder leaks and something called the “period sex blanket,” have sent what they’re calling “endurance packages” to Democratic Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Kristen Gillibrand in preparation for the upcoming Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings.
Just in case you wanted the mental image of Liz Warren…well, there’s no need to belabor the point.
Period sex blanket?
Anyway, here’s a press release that explains the companies’ products:
“THINX and Icon create underwear that champion and support bodies throughout different stages of life. From first periods to post-menopause and all the little leaks in between, THINX and Icon aim to empower their customers with sustainable solutions, all while breaking taboos around menstruation and bladder leaks.”
Apparently one of those “stages of life” includes the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, whom the companies claim will be an enemy of “women’s rights.” The underwear, they say, will prepare Gillibrand and Warren “for hearings and other potential roadblock attempts in efforts to stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation.”
This is too funny. If the executives at these companies are actually conservatives in disguise, they are brilliant trolls who deserve an award of some kind.
Sadly, though, we suspect this is exactly what it appears to be.
“It’s unclear how long SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation hearing will last, but we know that it is absolutely critical for our Senators to do everything possible to prevent the appointment of a Supreme Court Justice who would roll back women’s rights and undermine women’s health,” said Kejal Macdonald of Icon. “That’s why we’re sending our absorbent, odor-free underwear to all of the women in the Senate, so that they can do everything possible to stop this nomination and protect our rights.”
We’ve official reached the point where the Democratic Party is parody-proof. You couldn’t make this silliness up.
