Mind bounce has returned and I cannot seem to stay focused long enough to finish the post I was working on tonight, so instead I give you a few very short snippets. But don’t worry … they are not short on snark!
The George & Kelly show …I have to admit that I take great pleasure in the anti-Trumpian comments I see from time-to-time by none other than George Conway, Kellyanne’s husband! Here’s his latest tweet …
“Even the modern tyrants whom the president … praises demonstrate more facility with language and more attention to governing detail than does he. To borrow from popular culture, Trump looks less like the sinister Emperor Palpatine and more like the hapless Jar Jar Binks.”
One commenter praised George, saying …
“Your bi- partisan honesty is making you an American hero. You are amongst some of society’s opinion leaders who stepped up to the plate after Senator McCain could no longer do so….Thank You.”
I repeat what I’ve often said … I wonder what their home life is like?
Ann Coulter makes sense???
The very name makes me see red, for she is the most radical, foul-mouthed, utterly stupid woman on the face of the earth. However, on Friday she miraculously said something that was actually true and made sense …
“The goal of a national emergency is for Trump to scam the stupidest people in his base for 2 more years.”
A change of heart? No, she just happens to be feuding with Trump and was likely trying to get his goat. Either that, or it was an accident. Even the stupidest of people will sometimes accidentally say something sensible. Nonetheless, she got it right … this time.
A tweet is worth a thousand words …
They turn on their own
A pair of Fox ‘News’ hosts have called for Florida Senator Marco Rubio to step down because he spoke out against Trump’s declaration of a state of emergency. You may remember last April (or, if you’re like me, you may not even remember yesterday) when I wrote a piece about Fox hosts Diamond and Silk? Well, it was they who took umbrage at Rubio’s statement:
“We have a crisis at our southern border, but no crisis justifies violating the Constitution. Today’s national emergency is border security. But a future president may use this exact same tactic to impose the Green New Deal.”
And Diamond & Silk’s response …
Brilliant … simply brilliant and so typical of the republicans today!
Last December, Trump announced his choice of former Fox ‘News’ reporter Heather Nauert to replace Nikki Haley as United States Ambassador to the United Nations. Of course, Ms. Nauert is highly qualified … she worked for Fox and she praises Trump – the only two qualifications necessary for any position in today’s federal government. But yesterday Ms. Nauert suddenly removed herself from consideration for this prestigious position. Why?
What Ms. Nauert said was that “it is in the best interests of my family”. But it seems there is just a little bit more to it than that. You see, about 10 years ago, she hired a foreign-born nanny who didn’t have the proper work visa and Nauert didn’t pay proper taxes on time. Yep, she fits right in with the Trump bunch. I wonder if this means she will have to step down from her current position as Acting Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs?
Who’s guarding the henhouse?
As I mentioned earlier this week, the national debt has now reached an all-time high of $22 trillion … that’s t-r-i-l-l-i-o-n. But Trump & Company seem to be shrugging their shoulders and saying, “So what?”I find it interesting, and more than a little bit disturbing, that Mick Mulvaney, Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), has no apparent interest in the ever-growing national debt. Mulvaney was one of the founding members of the House Freedom Caucus and a deficit hawk. But last week, when asked if Trump would mention the debt in his State of the Union address, Mick said that he would not, because “nobody cares”.
And Trump himself, who was highly critical of the debt under President Obama …
“Our debt is about to top $17T. ObamaCare and China (& others) are killing American business.” – 24 June 2013
“So many problems in the U.S. and leadership that is hopeless…and now, on top of everything else, we just hit $18 trillion in debt!” – 13 October 2014
“With America’s debt topping $21T by the end of his presidency, Obama will have effectively bankrupted our country.” – 10 February 2015
The same man who tweeted those tweets now shrugs his shoulders after adding nearly another $3 trillion to the debt and bringing it to its highest level in the history of the nation. And when financial advisors attempted to explain the severity of the situation in 2017, he reportedly said, “Yeah, but I won’t be here”.
And on that note, I bid you a happy Sunday!
