So much stunning bravery these days … it’s getting harder and harder to keep up with it all. But doggone it, we’re going to to do our best.
That’s why we want to tell you about Ellen Page. Last night, the LGBT actress weighed in on the alleged hate crime against “Empire” star Jussie Smollett (an alleged attack, by the way, whose details still don’t add up). And Page was willing to place the blame squarely where it belongs: On Mike Pence.

Climate change, too? Wow, is there anything this gal can’t discuss eloquently?

Blaming Mike Pence for alleged hate crimes. What’s not to like?
— natasha lyonne (@nlyonne) February 1, 2019
She is right. And it shouldn't just matter because she is celebrity, either. But yet it sets an example. People should be able to live how they want to live without someone tapping in on their shoulder telling them what is right or wrong https://t.co/wu8ozOvmBr

Such an inspiration to those of us who like to baselessly slime conservative politicians and blame them for crimes they didn’t commit (and perhaps crimes that didn’t actually happen).
Well said, Ellen Page! Mike Pence is an insane zealot who has set LGBTQ rights back years and it’s important that people speak up. Hate crimes have spiked under this administration so it is literally a life-or-death matter.

“Literally a life-or-death matter” because Mike Pence, you guys.
How much longer are we supposed to wait? We’ve got things to do.
Set them back exactly how? Are his religious beliefs keeping you up at night?

Ellen Page does not like Trump this is really huge news
— Kyle Smith (@rkylesmith) February 1, 2019
This is boilerplate garbage.
It would be news if she DIDN'T slam Trump. https://t.co/fh4B28AdtN

Parting thought exercise for Ms. Page and her cheer squad:
So you're saying Bernie Sanders made James T. Hodgkinson shoot Steve Scalise. https://t.co/oWSCFDC08a
