If you live outside the United States, count your blessings. This nation has lost its collective marbles! I would damn near kill for just one day with no mention of anyone whose last name is Trump in the news. I would absolutely do a happy dance if all the republicans in the nation suddenly developed laryngitis and had to go 24 hours without opening their nasty mouths! We can’t even get weekend breaks from the chaos and craziness! In keeping with the chaos, I now have news overload which has given me a severe case of mind bounce (not to mention high blood pressure), so this morning you get a bunch of unrelated tiny snippets with an abundance of snark … I think.
You’re Fired (by form letter via email)
Trump fired the Pentagon business advisory board … all nine of them. Members of the board received a brief email from Joshua Whitehouse, the White House liaison to the Department of Defense, that simply said, “if you are receiving this e-mail, your membership on the Defense Business Board has expired or is coming to an end.” What a way to find out you’re ousted, eh?
But wait … that’s not even the worst part. Two of the people Trump named to the board to replace the fired members are none other than Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie, his former campaign manager and deputy campaign manager, neither of whom have served a single day in the military or have a hair on their head’s worth of experience in the defense industry! My damn cat has as much to qualify him for a seat on that board as those two ass-lickers have. Former Defense Secretary William Cohen called the move, “… an obscene gesture to the Biden supporters and to at least the majority of the American people.”
Former Republican congresswoman Michele Bachmann, who made a brief and unsuccessful attempt to gain the republican nomination for president in 2012, just can’t seem to sit down and shut up. Her latest is a short video whereby she pleads with god to “deliver Donald Trump a second term”. I don’t need to add my snark to that one, for it speaks for itself.
Gaetz banned from New Jersey!
I’ve written so many times about the punk republican representative Matt Gaetz that I can even spell his name without looking it up. He was arrested for Driving Under the Influence in 2008, and two years later elected to the Florida House of Representatives. Since 2017, he’s been making a fool of himself in the U.S. House of Representatives. He’s a punk who thinks his antics are cute … he reminds me of a teenage boy, but he is in fact 38 years of age.
The latest? He doesn’t seem to understand that rules apply to him, too. He attended a ‘secret party’ held by the Young Republicans club in Jersey City, New Jersey, with at least 150 other people in attendance. Right smack in the middle of a new surge of the coronavirus in that area, and where such large gatherings were expressly forbidden by order of Governor Phil Murphy. Nobody wore a mask at the gathering.
While not officially banned, Governor Murphy said, “You are not welcome in New Jersey, and frankly I don’t ever want you back in this state.” Two thumbs up to Governor Murphy for having the courage to speak up and speak out. As for Gaetz … Floridians apparently think he’s cool, for he was re-elected again last month. Way to go, Florida … here, have another drink of Kool Aid.
Isn’t coercion illegal?
I seriously long for the day Trump is naught but a bad memory … I would love not to see his name ever again. The latest? He’s once again trying to coerce Georgia Governor Brian Kemp to convene an emergency session of the Georgia State Legislature so it can name its own electors, who would in turn vote for him instead of President-Elect Joe Biden. This, my friends, is how leaders of banana republics deport themselves, not the ‘leader’ of a democratic republic of 330 million people!!! WE THE PEOPLE spoke on November 3rd! Donald F***ing Trump has no right whatsoever to attempt to override our voices!
In case you can’t tell, I am livid. Donald Trump should be arrested right now and kept in a jail cell, given only bread and water until the evening of January 20th. He has broken just about every law I can think of, and this is beyond unconscionable … it is criminal! He is a crook, worse than President Richard M. Nixon ever thought about being. He is as bad as Jeffrey Dahmer!
Kemp, for whom I have zero respect, to his credit refused Trump’s ‘request’. Georgia has had two full recounts and an audit and certified the election for Joe Biden not just once, but twice. No evidence of any notable fraud has been found. Why oh why hasn’t Melania held a pillow over his head some night?
Ol’ Two-Faced Lindsey is at it again
Speaking of men with no conscience … Lindsey Graham is in the news again. You remember Lindsey … the ‘man’ who claimed to be Senator John McCain’s ‘best friend’ and then stabbed him in the back? Lindsey made an appearance on Fox ‘News’ the other day. When Sean Hannity asked him about the possibility of Donald Trump facing a Federal investigation for crimes he’s accused of committing in office and during his campaign, Lindsey replied, falsely claiming that Robert Mueller’s investigation “found nothing,” and promising that if both Republicans win the two special elections coming up in January in Georgia, “the Attorney General nominee…will come before the judiciary committee…there’s no way in hell anyone’s gonna get confirmed …”
Tell you what, folks … I think it’s time for a mass impeachment of every damn republican in Congress, for as best I can tell they are every one a bunch of crooks who are determined to further rip apart what little is left of our trust in government.
And on that note, I must stop for tonight for if I don’t take a bit of time to wind down, I’ll lie awake cussing ‘til the sun comes up … if it even bothers. Have a wonderful Sunday … if you live outside the U.S., that might be possible.
