Dog day of summer

It was a long day for protesters and marchers around the country yesterday. Their dogs were barking. Protesters were cuffed and dragged out of Pat Toomey’s office at the capitol. They just kept on chanting, “Don’t kill me! Kill the bill!”

Jason Chaffetz is leaving the glamorous life of Capitol Hill to be a talking head for Fox News, just like Sarah Palin. And just like Sarah (and Alex Jones,) he’ll get to work from home – no more commute, he’ll get to write off office space on his taxes, and he’ll get to spend more time with his kids even though they’re all grown and don’t live at home anymore. It’s a cushy job. He’ll be going from being dogged by the press to getting to pretend that he is the press. After bullshitting old, paranoid white people in one room of his house for an hour he’ll move to his deck to drink a non-caffeinated, Mormon sanctioned, refreshing drink while he pets his pure bred dogs.and watches the sun go down on America.

While Trump was on the phone with the Irish Prime Minister in the Oval Office, he hit on one of the Irish reporters in the room. He forgot where he was for a second as he was fantasizing that he was in a Wayne’s World movie and all of the female reporters were fembots. Too much talk about bots.

White House is snubbing CNN again. CNN needs to hurry up and bite back, rabidly.

Trump is picking another fight with North Korea. He is jonesing for a blockbuster war. He needs the ratings. General McMaster said the threat is immediate. General McMaster also said that Trump didn’t share sensitive intelligence about Israel with the Russians even though he did. Dog days for the McMaster.

Trump is taking credit for Assad not doing a chemical attack. Nikki Haley said the president saved many lives.

The destruction of the state department is well under way. The state department looks like a ghost town. Offices have closed, hallways are empty. People don’t have defined duties. Rex Tillerson is not happy. He doesn’t want anybody telling him what to do. He’s a CEO for God’s sake. He’s top dog and doesn’t take orders from anybody. He’s not supposed to work like a dog – everybody else is supposed to.

UN Ambassador Nikki Haley said that in five short months they’ve cut over half a billion from the UN peacekeeping budget and they’re just getting started! Killing puppies would be a logical next step for such an ambitious ass kisser because the world doesn’t need puppies any more than it does peace.

Trump threw a big fundraiser for himself last night at his DC hotel. As he drove to the hotel with his entourage, protesters yelled at him. Cost to get in? $35,000 a pop. The press couldn’t get in because they’re evil. He’s not only milking donors to pay for his legal defense, he’s making money off of the event. Average, decent Americans are appalled by this. The people inside were not. Doggone it, Wikileaks! Who was at this event? We want names!

Republican hypocrites fun fact: Sarah Huckabee Sanders’s brother tortures dogs.

Mitch McConnell has been busy, working like a dog on his deathcare bill. He’s trying to keep Trump as far away from it as possible because he’ll just screw things up. That hasn’t stopped Trump from commenting on how great everything is and promising a big surprise in a couple of weeks. 39 Republican Senators won’t say if they’re for the bill or not. Only 5 have said they’re for it. McConnell’s threat to Republicans? You better agree to this or we’ll have to work with those dogs, the Democrats.

Senator Dean Heller of Nevada said he would vote NO on McConnell’s bill. Trump’s super pac ran a 6 figure attack dog ad against Heller. Republicans freaked out. What the hell are you doing, running an attack ad against somebody in your own party? Oops, call the dogs off.

Marco Rubio tweeted: “As dogs return to their vomit, so fools repeat their folly. Proverbs 26:11” What the hell does that mean?

The Senate Intelligence Committee is getting the Comey memo. They’re not investigating obstruction of justice so why are they looking at the memo? Release the hounds!

Lassie! Lassie! Find America! Go get her, girl!

The president of the United States has a 35% approval rating and is under FBI investigation. America has gone to the dogs.

It gets worse. He doesn’t even have a dog.

Well deserved

Republicans decided to delay the vote on their deathcare bill until after recess. Republicans are scared of their constituents so don’t expect any town halls. They’ll need to be hunted down at their offices, the grocery store, restaurants, Fourth of July celebrations, strip clubs, everywhere. Let them have it – they deserve it. Mitch the Bitch says the bill is not dead even though its approval rating is only 17%. He’ll be working throughout the recess to change minds and buy votes with a hefty slush fund he is in charge of. Al Franken said McConnell cancelled the vote because apparently healthcare is complicated.

Democrats smell blood in the water. Now is not the time to be touchy feely bleeding heart liberals focused on finding and bandaging the bleeding wound. Now is the time to ATTACK. Republicans deserve it.

If Mitch McConnell succeeds and the bill passes, the average payroll savings in Medicaid cuts for the average worker would be about $180. Killing fellow Americans and letting our most vulnerable neighbors and relatives suffer in exchange for making a cell phone payment or a buying a day pass to Disneyland is not worth it. Nobody deserves that.

Health insurance companies can bring Obamacare premiums way down if the freaking government would make good on its promise and restore the risk corridor payments! The Republicans and their dirty tricks are to blame for increases in premiums, NOT OBAMACARE!

After a week of not letting the press film and record press briefings, Sarah Huckabee Sanders let the cameras in so she could set the room up to chastise the entire press corp by lambasting CNN for a recent retracted mistake they made where CNN reporters didn’t follow proper editorial procedure and relied on an anonymous source for a story. The reporters resigned. Sarah Huckabee Sanders blamed the entire media for people not trusting Trump and hammered down on the Russian story as a hoax. She said the president doesn’t deserve that kind of treatment. Then she got all huffy and accused the reporters of not covering all of the great stuff they’re doing because they’re obsessed with Russia. To the delight of many Americans who have been wishing the media would push back on Huckabee and Spicer, a reporter from Playboy, Brian Karem, called her and the White House out for spinning “fake news” and scapegoating the media. SHE DESERVED IT. All of the other reporters kept a straight face and looked straight ahead. They’re still trying to figure out how to be professional about this shit show. Brian’s Twitter following has increased by 60,000 since he said what everyone is thinking.

The White House has declared war on CNN. The old rules need to be abandoned. CNN needs to fight back. Principled reporters get lied to every day by the President of the United States and they just sit there, taking notes, writing stories, and pretending like everything is normal. IT IS NOT.

Speaking of fake news: Trump made fake copies of Time magazine with him on the cover and had them framed and hung at all of his golf clubs to impress the members.Time found out about it and made him take them all down. This stunt sums up the character of the man: a vain, sloppy liar. The bar code at the bottom right lower corner is for a course on karaoke. Lifestyles of the rich and famous.

Trump has done one full length news conference in five months. Obama did seven. Reagan did three and he’d been shot! Trump is scared to do a press conference because he doesn’t know what he’s doing, he hates his job and everybody hates him. He doesn’t deserve to be president and he knows it.

Republican hypocrites fun fact: Utah congressman Jason Chaffetz makes $174,000 a year. He’ll be gone in a week, yipeeeeee! He says being a congressman is expensive and that members of congress should get a housing stipend. $30K a year should do it, he says, in order for members of Congress to maintain a decent quality of life while they’re in DC. Taxpayers should be expected to pay about $16 million to cover rent for their over-paid, deadbeat employees? Um, no. Since Chaffetz suggested that people forego owning a cell phone in order to pay for health care, congress members shouldn’t get a government hand out for a second home. Or perhaps he and his wife could modify their own spending and move to a more affordable neighborhood in Utah. They live in hoity-toity Alpine where houses are 80% above Utah’s average. Chaffetz is a typical affluent Republican who thinks he works harder than the rest of us so therefore is more deserving. He has yet to get what he really deserves.

Former Trump campaign manager, Paul Manafort, registered as a foreign agent retroactively. He was paid 17 million by a Ukraine political party.

Paul Ryan said this congress and presidency will be the most productive of our time. They haven’t done a damn thing. They deserve to be fired so vote them out in November 2018.

A Trump Tower in Toronto, Canada, has changed hands. The first thing the new owner is going to do is take the most hated name in the world off the side of the building.

Deep thoughts by Sean Spicer: “The tweets speak for themselves.”

Trump will get what he deserves.

What do you mean?

“Personal Responsibility” per the Republican Party:

-You shouldn’t let yourself get poor
– Getting cancer is your own damn fault
– Being old, sick, frail and lonely is nobody else’s problem
– Hungry kids choose hunger and should be forced to work for food
– People on disability, social security or Medicare are entitled deadbeats sucking off of the tit of the federal government
– Every man for himself
– Only the whitest and richest should survive

Mitch McConnell is a monster and Republicans don’t care about you.

Republican hypocrites fun fact: Health and Human Services Secretary and former congressman from Georgia Tom Price traded hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of shares of health-related companies while he was serving on House committees that had jurisdiction over them. When asked about that during the Senate confirmation hearing for his HHS Secretary nomination, he played dumb and was confirmed. He’s out there now telling people to trust Republicans on the healthcare bill like some sort of creepy guy in a van that hangs around public parks telling people not to pay any attention to the CBO score and to come closer to the van so he can give you a piece of candy. “Can you help me find my puppy? Don’t worry, you won’t lose your insurance. Get in.” He used to be an orthopedic surgeon who cared about people.

The Dems are hammering down on the Robbing Hood talking point that focuses on the cuts to Obamacare taking from the poor and giving to the rich. It’s true, but if little kids are dying, disabled people are being tossed overboard, the elderly are getting kicked to the curb, and people are going bankrupt over medical bills, nobody wants to hear about rich people.

Paul Ryan hasn’t done a town hall in his district in two years because he doesn’t serve Wisconsin, he serves the Republican Party.

Stupid, heartless, ridiculous dumbass Republican comment of the day – people with preexisting conditions don’t deserve insurance because it’s like somebody crashing their car and then going out and getting auto insurance after the wreck. Senator Ron Johnson said that. He’s from Wisconsin.

Wisconsin………Paul Ryan………..Scott Walker………..gerrymandering and the Supreme Court………cheesus.

If the media would stick to how much danger we’re in right now that would be great. And if they would just go ahead and film the White House press briefings whether Sean or Sarah say they can or not, that would also be great.

Kellyanne Conjob said that if you’re on Medicaid and you lose your health insurance you can always get a job.

Jared wasn’t able to broker a peace deal in the Middle East last week so Trump presented him with a signed Atta Boy certificate for giving it his best shot and then took him for a ride in his golf cart.

When Fox News asked Ivanka about her dad’s tweets she said she tries to stay out of politics. When she was ordered to testify over accusations of copying an Italian shoemaker’s design, she said should couldn’t possibly do that because she’s a high ranking government official.

Secretary of the Treasury, Steve Mnuchin (one of the guys who never went to jail for tanking the economy and throwing people out of their homes) married his third wife, a Scottish immigrant 18 years his junior in a lavish ceremony officiated by Mike Pence. Not on the guest list: Sean Spicer. He never gets invited to anything.

The alt-right held a couple of “Rallies Against Political Violence” over the weekend. It was supposed to be one rally but it split into two rallies – one at the White House and one at the Lincoln Memorial – because both groups accused the other group of not being right enough. Before the speakers went on, the tone was set by a black man wearing a MAGA hat ranting about how you don’t get anything for free, you get it by working for it, a guy blowing a shofar, and another guy wearing a t-shirt of Kathy Griffin holding a severed head, yelling “It’s time to put George Soros in a gas chamber!” Message received, shitty white people (and one black guy, the paid protester.)

Deutsche Bank has been busted for Russian money laundering.Trump and Kushner have loans with Deutsche Bank. When Democrats asked for financial records on Trump, Deutsche Bank said no.

It’s the end of Ramadan. Former President Thomas Jefferson, a staunch advocate of religious freedom, famously hosted a White House iftar in December of 1805. Hillary Clinton started a White House tradition of hosting an annual iftar during Ramadan starting in 1996. Trump ended it.

Trump is not very happy that anyone else is using the word, “mean.” That’s his word. He invented it.

Trump has started the week with tweets about the Democrats being nothing but obstructionists because he’s an idiot.

Call your senators every day this week and tell them to VOTE NO on the Republican healthcare bill 202-224-3121.

Pinheadstock

Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson says voting no on the healthcare bill is not a bluff. Yeah, and monkeys might fly out of my bluff.

Wisconsin Senator from the who’s a commie 50s, Joe McCarthy, is the ghost of Twitler’s future. McCarthy was a big fat liar who ruined lives by accusing people of being loyal to Russia. Trump is a big fat lair who is loyal to Russia and is on his way to ruining the lives of everybody he dragged into this. McCarthy died a miserable, friendless, alcoholic. Trump won’t ever die. He’s a Russian butt. I mean bluff. I mean fake news-disseminating bot. Whatever – he’s not a real man.

Americans are sitting ducks, paralyzed by the indifference and inaction of the Trump administration. Another Russian attack is imminent. We are completely defenseless because our president is a pinhead and Beavis and Butthead run the National Security Council.

Pinheads make up 36% of the voting electorate and they remain pinned to their guy. NOTHING Trump does or says will cause them to move their pin.

Trump is way in over his pinhead.

Leakers are doing shots of Mezcal and playing pin the head on the jackass in the east wing. Whoever gets the worm has to storm the capitol steps, climb up on top of the dome and yell, “Orange lies matter!”

The alt-right has scheduled an Anti-Political Violence rally in front of the White House today. Normal people are dubbing it Pinheadstock.

Paul Ryan wants to get on with the healthcare vote because keeping their promises is what the fart right is all about.

Republican hypocrites fun fact: Newbie Congressman Scott Taylor is all in for Trumpcare and poo poos the claims that 23 million will be left uninsured. A former Navy Seal, he’s accustomed to taking orders and has voted 100% with Trump since he started in January. He will vote yes on Trumpcare.

The Republican healthcare bill knowingly takes healthcare away from people who are already very sick. When they die, isn’t that pre-meditated murder?

Remember how freaked out we all were when the Corporations Are People My Friend Two Faced Butthead Gazillionaire ran against Obama? That’s pimples to cancer compared to what we’ve got now. Cancer with no insurance.

We made Jimmy Carter sell his peanut farm and Trump is running his empire straight out of the White House, right under our noses, but over his voter’s pinheads.

Twitler is making presidential historian’s lives much easier by providing a written outline of his lies and acts of treason with his never ending tweets. The pinhead just doesn’t know when to shut up. He really is a ro-ro-ro-bot!

Remember – Trump and everything that comes with him didn’t just happen. It’s the culmination of 30 years of the Republicans pandering to the lowest common denominator and demonizing liberals. They built this monster and they don’t care what happens next.

Post Trump Stress Disorder support groups are popping up all around the country for people who wake up every morning totally FREAKED OUT.

Buttheads, pinheads, no heads of state. That’s what things have come to. Next week is going to be a real nail biter so take your chill pills, check in with your PTSD support group, and call your senators every day to ask them not to kill you.

Liar liar

The presidency of the United States is reality TV and Trump is Putin’s Apprentice.

The Washington Post came out with a lengthy piece that says that Putin is directly involved in the cyber attack on America, calling it the crime of the century. The plan was to defeat Clinton and make Trump president. The Obama administration took it as seriously as it did taking down Osama bin Laden, but didn’t retaliate with full US power because it didn’t want to interfere with the election. Russia should have paid a much bigger price for the attack, but Obama was worried that it would look like Obama was helping Hillary, especially since Trump had already claimed that the election was rigged (it was.) The Democrats wanted to tell the public, the Republicans did not. Since Obama thought for sure that Hillary would win, he decided to leave punishing Russia to her. Trump is Putin’s puppet. He not only “won” the election but he’s indebted to Russia financially. We’ll get proof of that once his taxes are subpoenaed (what’s the big deal, Donald? It’s not like we’re asking for your birth certificate.) Now Trump is in charge of punishing Russia and making sure they don’t ever do this again. He won’t.

The Russia story is way bigger than collusion. The collusion part is for amateurs. Greedy, shortsighted amateurs.

Trump wants everybody to believe that he’s just finding out about Russia even though it’s been on the news every day and he’s the president so he should know, duh. The Twitter trail says it all. The most recent, ironic stupid tweet: “Obama knew about Russia meddling but didn’t do anything.” Don the Con knows about Russia and he’s not doing anything.

Lawyers had Spicer face the press and say that he finally got around to talking to the president about whether or not he thinks Russia interfered with the election. The answer is yes.

Never give a liar the benefit of the doubt.

Former Apprentice star, and now a member of the Trump administration, Omarosa Manigault, wants everybody to Make Omarosa Great Again by referring to her as “The Honorable Omarosa Manigault.” This title is normally reserved for members of Congress, heads of federal agencies, and judges. She’s just another Trump adviser, whatever that means.

Early childhood experts have been called in to help staff manage toddler tantrums in the White House. They are setting their alarm clocks for half past the president’s ass to sit with Trump in the middle of the night so he can rant to them and not take to Twitter.

When Trump has a hard time falling asleep he counts sheep in red hats.

Oversight chair Howdy Doody Trey Gowdy says his committee won’t pursue Russia probe. Benghazi yes, Russia no.

The White House is spinning Comey and Mueller’s relationship. Just how close are they? Fox News wants to know.

George W. Bush is starting to look pretty good these days and the nation isn’t even drunk.

Another Republican has announced he will vote no on the murderous healthcare bill – Senator Dean Heller from Nevada. A Republican Super PAC has said they’ll go after him with six figure attack ads.

ADAPT is a national grass-roots organization that organizes disability rights activists. In 1978 they stopped traffic in Denver, surrounding buses in their wheel chairs to draw attention to the fact that the buses were not accessible.In 1985 their demands were met and the buses were outfitted with lifts and ramps. Their efforts had a ripple effect resulting in the American Disability Act of 1990.This week they took on Mitch McConnell and were thrown out of the capitol. People stepped over them in the halls, cops dragged them out of their wheel chairs and cameras kept rolling. Watch for the ripple effect.

Protesters orchestrated die-ins at Rob Portman’s office in Ohio and Pat Toomey’s office in Pennsyvlania (staying all night.) Angry constituents showed up at Jeff Flake’s office in Arizona chanting, “CALL HIM!” Protesters filled the terminals at DC airports to scream at senators who were flying home for the weekend. Senators are bummed that their constituents are ruining their weekend, they work so hard.

Republican hypocrites fun fact: Senator Pat Toomey – he spearheaded the deep cuts to Medicaid in the Republican health care bill. He said Medicaid needs to be cut to be more sustainable. Killing people and throwing them out in the street is necessary to make Medicaid more sustainable.Got it. He out right lied and said that their bill had had lots of outside input when in fact they drafted the bill under the covers with flashlights in Mitch McConnell’s bed. He’s a big supporter of Betsy DeVos and charter schools, as well as cutting down trees wherever you find them and drilling for oil whenever greed calls. He doesn’t like immigrants or gay people. He was re-elected in 2016 which means we’re stuck with him for 6 years. Thanks a lot, Pennsylvania.

A Russian fighter jet came upon one of our planes in international air space and got as close as 5’. This isn’t the first time that this has happened since we shot down a Syrian plane. Russia is playing chicken in the sky. Chickens aren’t supposed to fly so Trump needs to be impeached NOW and take his Most Honorable Boobs with him (Melania, too.)

Now tweet this: Trump put his hand on a book he’s never read to take an oath he’ll never keep to uphold a constitution he doesn’t understand. Now what?

Political theatre

Trump told the crowd in Iowa that they’d be getting the biggest tax cut ever and they all cheered. Yeehaw! We’re gonna get some money! He wasn’t really talking about them, he just wanted to hear the applause. He’d had a rough week and needed a little stroking from the audience. He got a standing ovation when he said immigration rules should include no welfare benefits for at least 5 yrs. That’s already a law. For over 20 years.

The Getting Away with Murder Act opened to really bad reviews. The mid-evil healthcare bill guts Medicaid, takes credits away from middle class, strips funding to Planned Parenthood, and that’s joust for starters. When disabled people showed up at Mitch McConnell’s office in wheelchairs to stage a die-in and speak out against their government, protesting cuts to life saving Medicaid, security threw them out, pulled them out of their wheel chairs, dragged them through the halls of congress, and arrested 43 of them.

The Fabulous Four came out soon after the bill was released with a typed statement saying they couldn’t support the bill as is. They are Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Ron Johnson. Since Rand Paul is the other Senator from Kentucky and quite chummy with Mitch McConnell, and Ted Cruz and Mike Lee were two of the 12 angry men who were drafted to write the bill, this has got to be part of the overall strategy. This was staged. What are they up to?

Rep. Trey Gowdy put on quite a show yesterday on CNN admonishing leakers. Hollering and sweating and forcefully making his point, he said that people don’t take congressional hearings seriously because of leakers. No, Trey, they don’t take YOU seriously because you tried to take down Hillary Clinton with the Benghazi Spectacle that went on forever. You made a fool of yourself and the American people have not forgotten. Put your finger down, wipe that sweat off of your face, and whatever you do, do not take a bow.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Adm. Mike Rogers said that Trump directed them to say that they saw no evidence of collusion.

The right wing wanna be Thespian who shot up a DC pizza parlor thinking he was busting up a child sex ring supposedly run by the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton got 4 years in jail. He heard about the human trafficking operation from Alex Jones and InfoWars, and Michael Flynn Jr. Alex Jones says, “Look, I’m just an entertainer” so he’s off the hook. Michael Flynn Jr got demoted to under study. He lost his job on Trump’s transition team. No big whoop. Now he has more time to tweet about more conspiracy theories.

Trump admitted that he doesn’t have any tapes of his conversation with Comey. It was just an act. His supporters have no problem with it. Everybody else is used to this by now and that’s not good.

The President of the United States can’t be trusted.

Why does Art of the Deal have four Chapter 11s?

Bill Cosby is going to teach young people how to avoid sexual assault charges. That’s show biz.

Republican Hypocrites Fun Fact: There is something fishy going on with the repugs who came out first thing against Mitch McConnell. They’re acting. Ted Cruz against something so cruel and horrible? Come on! This is theatre magic. While the audience is focused stage left, the villains are emerging from a trap door, stage right. Look out!

Matt Laslo, Public Radio Reporter & Contributor for Rolling Stone, went on the Bill Press Show this morning and told a story of sitting next to Ohio congressman Tim Ryan in a bar. He was so coked up he was grinding his teeth. When Matt told the bartender who he was, the bartender said, “No way – he’s not a congressman, he’s too wasted,” so Matt pulled up his congressional head shot on his phone. He passed the audition.

He is playing the part of a congressman.

Liberals are fighting with each other about who is to blame for the Dems not winning in the deep, DEEP south.

Republicans are hammering on Pelosi to draw attention away from how close they came to losing in the deep, DEEP south.

Give us your poor, your huddled masses

Trump threw a rally for himself for the farmers in Iowa so he could perform his greatest hits, take credit for the two Republicans who won on Tuesday, and brag about the wall that they’ve supposedly started building which is going to have solar panels so it can generate power and not cost the poor Mexicans too much. He got the farmers to come to his rally by promising them five acres and a mule. He told them that “We call you American patriots, amazing people,” “It’s so good to get out of the swamp,” “I don’t want any poor people around me,” and “I just want you to know God blesses you.” The crowd ate it up like free Spam sandwiches at a county fair.

Farmers in Kansas say they need more Mexicans.

The Republicans are playing games with our lives with national security and health care.

There is more proof that the Russians deliberately targeted blue counties in various states. Trump made no comment. He keeps Putin it off.

When John McCain was asked if he had seen the healthcare bill, he answered, “No, but Russia probably has.”

Poor Senator Chuck Schumer says the reason why the Republicans won’t let anybody see their bill is because they are ashamed. That is incorrect. Republicans know no shame.

Mitch the Bitch is going to flash HIS health care bill today to a small group of Republican senators – men only. After that he’ll flash it to the rest of the Senate. No debate, no amendments. Vote happens on Tuesday, the sick, the poor and the old be damned.

Trump went off script and told Congress to throw more money at the health care bill because he wanted to hear the poor people cheer.

Republicans could stop Mitch McConnell by standing up to him on behalf of our poor, disparaged country but they won’t. They could impeach Trump, too, but they won’t.

Republican hypocrites fun fact: Every single Republican senator who wants the public to believe that they aren’t happy about not seeing Mitch McConnell’s bill is going to turn around and vote for it. Either that or they are all lying and have been privy to what’s been going on behind closed doors all along – the plan being something really crappy so they can all vote no and save political face.

A third of our US Senators are over 70. None of them are poor. Mitch the Bitch is 75. Mitch the Bitch is disgustingly rich.

Trump voters want to know why everybody won’t just shut up about Russia and get back to attacking transgender people, Muslims, and immigrants.

The Congressional Black Caucus said no way to Trump’s invitation to get their picture taken with him.

Nevada Republican Congressman Cresent Hardy told a room full of anti-government people at a Libertarian Party Expo in Las Vegas that people with disabilities are a drain on society.

Sean Spicer is rolling over to another spot in Dear Leader’s bed. Steve Bannon says it’s because he’s fat.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be doing the press briefing today – no cameras or recorders. They’re tired of getting caught lying, stumbling around for answers, covering for the president, being recorded looking stupid, and being accessible to the public.

Baby Face Jared met with Israeli and Palestinian leaders yesterday to ask them to kiss and make up.

Jared Kushner still has a security clearance.

Trump got all excited about a Republican winning in Georgia and thought it was all because of him (the candidate, Karen Handel, never mentioned his name). He doesn’t get that the reliably 40 year old solid red district with no poor people moved 18 points toward Democrats in 7 months and that he and the repugs should be very, very worried.

Trump is going to hold his first re-election fundraiser at his D.C. hotel. No poor people allowed.

Resist!

Yikes

It’s every man for himself in the White House these days.

Sean Spicer says that the president has confidence in his administration and he’s going to get those leakers.

Democrats held the senate floor last night to draw attention to the Republican secret healthcare bill scandal, telling personal stories of how their constituents have benefited from the Affordable Care Act.

On his way out the door, Jason Chaffetz stuck his tongue out at Congress and yelled, “The Trump administration is almost as bad as the Obama administration!” To which Congress quipped back, “He’s rubber, you’re glue, whatever bounces off him sticks to you.”

The Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has asked the Muslim community to step up security measures for end-of-Ramadan activities after the murder of a teenaged Muslim girl over the weekend. America is home to a significant number of Islamaphobes who believe that all Muslims (1% of our population) are terrorists.

In Pennsylvania, a 4 year little old boy second amendmented himself with a loaded gun he found. He’s dead. It is not known yet if his 21 year old mom will be charged for leaving her loaded gun around where her 4 year old could find it.
In Bucks County, Pennsylvania, at least 617 children have accidentally shot themselves or someone else with an unsecured firearm since January 2015, killing 238 people. Since January 2016, 72 toddlers have fired a gun, 24 killing themselves and 21 killing another person. Second amendment my ass.

The Supreme Court has delivered a blow to the GOP by taking a case on gerrymandering in Wisconsin. If all goes well, democracy could make a comeback.

Cops keep killing black people.

What if Cuba had a Trump Tower?

We shot down a Syrian aircraft. This is the first time we’ve done that since 1999. Now Russia says our planes are targets. Our state department is just one guy – the former CEO of Exxon. Yikes.

The White House Trojan horse: A giant chocolate cake on wheels, rolled in by the Keebler elf. Once in the oval office three Russian hookers jump out doing the punk rock pogo dance to the tune of “Secret Agent Man.”

Baby Face Jared finally opened his mouth and spoke out loud in front of the newly formed Technology Council (his lawyers told him not to be nervous because they were all gamers). He read his speech as if he was reading the Torah at his bar mitzvah. He’s a kid. He’s a spoiled rich kid, totally undeserving of the office he holds, the Secretary of Everything. His dad is a crook and his father in law is a crook. His lawyers don’t want us to think he’s a crook so they had him read a speech for the gamers.

Mitch McConnell will go down in history as being one of the most vindictive, cruelest, unpatriotic, sneakiest, undemocratic senators of all time. His legacy will be sabotaging one of America’s best presidents and destroying one of the most important pieces of legislation ever crafted, the Affordable Care Act.

Three of the seven sailors who died on the USS Fitzgerald were immigrants.

Women make up 51% of our population but only represent 20% of congress.

No recorders or cameras allowed during the White House press conference. Sean Spicer took a question from a Russian reporter, but not CNN. Yikes.

Republican hypocrites fun fact: Dancing with the Stars contestant Tom DeLay was once the House Majority Whip from Texas but left in disgrace in 2005 having gotten himself busted for conspiracy to violate election law. He was charged with money laundering and conspiracy charges related to illegal campaign finance activities in order to help Republican candidates in Texas. He was convicted in 2011 and sentenced to three years in prison but appealed and got off. Tom was one of the Republicans who really tried to stick it to Clinton by impeaching him for something he had done, A LOT – having sex with someone other than his wife. Didn’t matter, though. He didn’t lie about it under oath and besides, that was a long time ago. Tom was known as “Hot Tub Tom” in his pre-born again Christian days. He stuck his nose in the Terri Schiavo case on behalf of the United States government, too, even though he removed life support from his own father in 1988 (that was in his Hot Tub Tom days, so again, it doesn’t count.) He was pals with Jack Abramoff, the Republican lobbyist who went to jail for fraud, tax evasion, and conspiracy. Jack gave Tom trips, gifts, and political donations in exchange for favors. He lobbied Tom to stop legislation that banned sex shops and sweatshops in the Marianas, a South Pacific island paradise where workers sewed clothes all day and then had sex with strangers at night. If impregnated, they were flown to China where they were either forced to give birth or have abortions. The workers were recruited from poor countries who were told they were going to America. Tom never did consider any legislation dealing with human rights abuses in the Marianas, even though there was a bill that was drafted that had 228 co-sponsors. He visited the exotic islands himself and had a wonderful time. It was paradise, after all. Did Jesus sit with him on the beach and tell him it was OK that he ignore what was going on behind him, beyond the barbed wire? No one knows, but he never did put the bill on the legislative calendar. What’s he doing now? God told him that he is supposed to devote himself to rebuilding the conservative base of the Republican Party.

The war in Afghanistan has gone on for 14 years and we’re not winning it. Will Trump send more troops? Yikes.

The race is on in the 6th district of Georgia today for Newt Gingrich’s smelly old seat. Karen Handel is the Republican in the race. When she was the Secretary of State she had a reputation of suppressing voters. She was really strict about voting ID laws which kept people from voting because they lacked the proper ID. She sent letters to Democratic voters a week before the election in 2008 saying that there was a question about their citizenship status. Confused and frustrated voters didn’t show up to vote.This should be an interesting day since this seat has been held by a conservative for 40 years.The Democratic contender, Jon Ossoff, shouldn’t stand a chance, but he does.They’re neck and neck. Fifty thousand people have registered to vote since April and they’re pissed.Vote your Ossoff today in the 6th district of Georgia!

The Panamanian President is here for a visit. While posing for the cameras in the oval office, Trump said to reporters, “The Panama Canal is doing quite well. We did a good job building it, right?” Trump’s guest from Panama almost lost his lunch. Teddy Roosevelt took it, Jimmy Carter wanted to give it back, and Donald Trump doesn’t know where it is.

Trump isn’t welcome anywhere around the world which is fine by him because he doesn’t want to go anywhere anyway.

Yikes.

Don’t use that tone with ___________

Trump never tweeted about his kids on Father’s Day. His kids didn’t have much to say about him either.

Trump: I am under investigation. Trump’s lawyer: The president is not under investigation. Trump: Investigate the investigation! Trump’s lawyer: Tone it down, Trump, you are NOT under investigation!

Trump created the American Technology Council by executive order. There is a round table today where everybody can tell Dear Leader how tech savvy he is. Up next? A Humanities Council by executive order so he can set the tone for Shakespeare in the Park loving liberal elites that he gets it. At their round table, members of the council can take turns telling Dear Leader how great thou art.

Broadway in the Park: Sunset Blvd with Bill O’Reilly as Norma Desmond.

Karen Handel is a Republican running for Tom Price’s seat in Georgia. Her campaign has taken a disgusting tone, running filthy ads that say the unhinged violent left is celebrating the shooting of Republicans. Meanwhile, liberal voters in this affluent, highly educated district are activated and working around the clock to defeat her. This district has been a safe, red district for 40 years, but that could change tomorrow. Democrats, mostly women, have come out of the closet in the sixth district to knock on doors for Jon Ossoff, a young, moderate Democrat who could very well kick Handel’s ass. The race is tied in the polls which should freak the GOP out but they’re in denial, busily repealing Obamacare, keeping the “We’ve got it under control” tone, and covering for Trump.

“I’ll tell you what: I think the shooting is going to win this election for us. Because moderates and independents in this district are tired of left-wing extremism.” said Brad Carver, GOP chairman in Georgia’s 11th congressional district, in a giddy tone of voice.

No tax bill. No healthcare bill. No immigration bill. But Trump says there is and that the Dems are obstructing all three of them. He said as much in his presidential tweet this morning when he endorsed Karen Handel.

Mitch McConnell didn’t do anything during the Obama administration but sabotage him. Five months into the Trump administration and he has stolen a Supreme Court seat, blocked bipartisan response to Russia, and is meeting in secret to take health insurance away from 23 million people. Same old tone.

Republicans say constituents aren’t calling in to oppose the AHCA. Mitch McConnell and his gang of 12 angry white men want to get this bill passed by July 4. Call your reps today and demand that the healthcare plan be made public (even if your reps are Dems) 202-224-3121.

Republican hypocrites fun fact: All of these Republican, white, male senators are meeting in secret to kill Obamacare, ignoring their constituents who have made it known loud and clear that they do not want the ACA repealed. They are: Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Mike Enzi and John of Barrasso of Wyoming, John Thune of South Dakota, Cory Gardner of Colorado, John Cornyn and Ted Cruz of Texas, Robert Portman of Ohio, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee of Utah, and Tom Cotton of Arkansas. They are the hypocrite’s hypocrites.

Jared Kushner is headed for the Middle East this week to broker peace between Israelis and Palestinians. The Middle East says tone it down a bit……maybe you should stay home and broker peace between yourself and your own fate.

A teenaged Muslim girl was leaving a mosque in Virginia with her friends and was confronted by a thug with a bat. She was kidnapped, killed, and her body discarded into a pond. Authorities won’t call it a hate crime and the All Lives Matter movement has no comment. The president kept up his do nothing tone by not mentioning it.

Trump has yet to nominate anyone for 74% of executive branch positions. Out of 558 positions that need Senate confirmation, 415 are still vacant. Nobody wants those jobs. not even immigrants.

Alex Jones is a disgusting evil man, Megyn Kelly is an ambitious skank, NBC is desperate and short-sighted, and advertisers are clueless.

Russiagate treasure map: Follow the money, follow the dirty, dirty money.

Trump voters think money laundering is actually putting money through the washing machine.

Talking point on The Hill: Tone down the tone.The talking heads are tone deaf – not a word about accountability. The Undertone? “I’m not the villain of this story.”
