Internet mocks Treasury secretary and his wife for posing with a sheet of money
Eli Rosenberg Washington Post

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin did what just about anyone would do when presented with a newly minted sheet of American currency bearing their name and signature on Wednesday: he posed for a photo.
Coming in the midst of tax-reform plans by President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans that nonpartisan analysts say would disproportionately benefit corporations and wealthy individuals, among others, the photo of Mnuchin and wife, Louise Linton, holding up the sheet of new $1 bills became an instant meme and drew wide mockery around the Internet.
The photo was snapped Wednesday as Mnuchin and Linton, along with U.S. Treasurer Jovita Carranza, toured the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington.

Ya’ really gotta wonder wtf is wrong with these people, and why do they keep behaving like this, and while these are valid and maybe even important questions, the real question Americans should be asking though is …

Who wore it better?

who wore it better

Louise? … or Darth?
Personally, I prefer Darth as I feel that his skin tone works better with the outfit. It gives it a certain Joie de vivre and makes the whole ensemble pop! I find Louise comes across as looking rather pale and dare I say it, common, and who wants to come across like that?
But, that’s just me.

Bad Touch Donnie seen here showing fellow assaulter Slick Willie how he “grabs ‘em”

Washington, D.C.: A picture of President Donald J. Trump actually ‘grabbing a pussy’ as he put it, has surfaced. It shows ‘Bad Touch Donnie, the TicTac Man’ grabbing fellow serial assaulter Slick Willie Clinton while what appears to be their secret service teams stood watch. It appears at this time that the two men met to discuss and compare notes on their respective techniques. Neither side has commented as of yet on the picture.

Limbaugh’s Defense: Back When Roy Moore Was Turned On By Teenage Girls, He Was A Democrat

November 14, 2017

“Not matter what the real stories are here and no matter what the evidence is, these guys, these people, on the Republican side are making it clear they’re going to prevent this guy from ever being seated in the United States Senate. Did you know that before 1992, when a lot of this was going on, that Judge Moore was a Democrat?

“You didn’t know that? How ’bout all these people now – ‘Oh yeah, everybody here knew about Judge Moore!’ – while he was a Democrat? Nobody said a word. When he supposedly was attracted to inappropriately aged girls, he was a Democrat.” – Rush Limbaugh, speaking on today’s show.

Rush Limballs, you are our winner of the d-bag apocalypse Outstanding Performer today!
Grats asshole!!!

Donnie Who?

DN_KMxFU8AADXAxScary Huckleberry Slanders at the newly renamed Whiter House presser tomorrow afternoon:
“I have a short statement regarding the ‘fake news’ that seemed to be swirling around the Whiter House while the President was on his historic, never before seen, majestically beautiful and God guided trip through Asia where he spent time with his favorite dictators and murderers. He also was able to spend some quality bonding (bondage?) time meeting with his mentor, idol and current lover Vladimir Putin in between greeting the tens, if not hundreds, of millions of adoring fans who lined the streets everywhere he went. These WERE the biggest crowds EVER to greet a president of the United States ANY WHERE at ANY TIME, period! And the crowds were literally thousands of times larger than any crowd that bla Obama guy got.
Anyways, my statement …
With regards to the latest fake news reports regarding this Donald J. Trump Jr. person.
Don Jr was a member of the Trump family for only a very, very short period of time. He was a volunteer, low level member who had no title, assigned duties or official position. We all know that he is, at best, a distant 3rd favorite to present wife Ivanka and a KFC Barrel, not necessarily in that order, and the Whiter house would contend that even Eric and very occasionally Tiffany were more favored by the Glorious Leader.
He would occasionally get covfefe and make copies. It was really low level involvement. And it was definitely NOT a Keurig. He was just a drifter that we allowed to sleep on the couch occasionally, and we’re really not sure that we’d recognize him even if we bumped into him in an elevator in the Whiter House residence. The president stands by his statement that it is nothing more than coincidence that he and ‘this grifter’ have a name that is somewhat similar, and that he is probably nothing more than a Clinton deep state ‘plant’ inserted into the Whiter House by Hillary URANIUM ONE! Clinton and Barrack HUSSEIN! Obama to destroy the new Emperor. The president has people, on the ground in Hawaii ,looking into this and apparently you won’t believe what they are finding. Also, that Michael Jackson impersonator you’ve all seen with the Emperor the last few months is actually his ‘wife’ and is NOT an escort (at least according to her lawyers). I hope that that finally clears that up for all of  you members the corrupt, fake media. We will no longer be taking questions after the daily pressers as our lawyers have advised us that all this lying may actually come back to bite us on the ass during the imminent impeachment and criminal legal hearings.”

That Guy

Ruh Roh, somebody’s really screwed now …

Stephen Miller, easily one of the most punchable faces in the history of punchable faces.

You know the guy. We all know the guy. He’s the kid everyone beat on as a kid, because he was such an ass-kissing, tattle-tail weenie. The asshole that showed up at parties, uninvited and unannounced, who never took the hint that there was a reason he was uninvited. That little shit hook weasel at work that derives his entire sense of his own manhood by being a bully to the peeps he somehow associates with the kids who beat on him as a kid, because he was such an ass-kissing, tattle-tail weenie. Impotent, ignorant, cruel and talkin’ shit as long as it’s not face to face.
TL;DR: never been laid, and really, really pissed about it. Plus, 55-45 he kills squirrels at the local park when no-one’s looking. 65-35 he’s a bed-wetter.

Anyhoo … this happened to our hero …

Fascinating piece here in the Times applying some Times level sleuthing to shed more light on those Papadopoulos court documents from last week. We get some idea of the backstory of Joseph Mifsud, apparently a failing and shambling academic career that was on its final skid when Russians showed up in 2014 with money and newfound respectability, an old story. Other gaps of the story are filled in. But the big one is Stephen Miller.
According to the Times, Miller is the “senior policy advisor” referenced in the Papadopoulos court documents. He was the only unnamed player still unidentified. This means that Miller was one of the top Trump advisors Papadopoulos was keeping posted on his efforts to set up meetings between Russian officials and Trump campaign officials, perhaps even (preposterous as it may seem) a meeting between Trump and Putin himself.

One noteworthy paragraph from the Times

The day before he learned about the hacked emails, Mr. Papadopoulos emailed Mr. Miller, then a senior policy adviser to the campaign, saying Mr. Trump had an “open invitation” from Mr. Putin to visit Russia. The day after, he wrote Mr. Miller that he had “some interesting messages coming in from Moscow about a trip when the time is right.”

With the indictments flowing like meth through a Palin and the Trump presidency circling the drain, Mikey has to be thinking about one thing a lot. Will he run for prez in 2020?
I guess it depends on whether he’s in the White House or the big house at the time …
My money is on “he won’t be available to run because some guy named Cletus just rented him out for 2 decks of smokes and a candy bar.” (oh please, please, please)

CNBC is reporting:

Rupert Murdoch twice discussed CNN with AT&T CEO: Report

Time Warner’s Rupert Murdoch called AT&T’s Randall Stephenson twice within the last six months.
One source said Murdoch offered to purchase CNN both times.

Ars Technica has this:

Trump’s DOJ wants AT&T/Time Warner to sell CNN or DirecTV before merger

The Trump administration is asking AT&T and Time Warner Inc. to sell off either CNN or DirecTV in order to win government approval of their merger, multiple news outlets reported today. AT&T has owned DirecTV since 2015 and is now seeking federal approval to purchase Time Warner Inc., the owner of programming such as HBO, CNN, and Warner Bros.

Plus, we’ve had Hair Furor hating on CNN forever, which I’m sure has nothing at all to do with his friendship with Murdoch. And there’s just no way that any of this is related to the whole Sinclair News deal that rolling along with no questions asked … hmm …

ahh, okay, now this all makes sense ….  “♫♪ It’s starting to look a lot like Fascists, Everywhere I go …♫♪”

10 over-the-top warnings from Americans about Canadian health care
”Easy on the rhetoric – we’re not dying in droves up here”
Maclean’s     August 30, 2012

In an interview with an Alaska radio station, Vice President Mike Pence’s warned that Canada’s health care system is failing. You might have heard that before. For nearly half a decade American pundits, publications and politicians have been kind enough to warn us that our socialized health care system is the filthiest, most evil and dangerous system on the planet. Here are some of the more over-the-top examples:

1. “Dear Canadian: You make socialized medicine sound ideal. But whenever private enterprise is replaced by a government institution, incentive is thwarted and the quality of services usually deteriorates.” —Dear Abby, April 25, 1977

2. “To receive major health care in two weeks would be only a dream for most Canadians.” —Susan Riggs,
Knight-Ridder, June 22, 1994

3. “People come here from every country . . . including Canadians fleeing from the substandard quality, cruel rationing and long waiting lists of their ‘free’ socialized medicine.” —Paul Craig Roberts, Scripps Howard News Service, June 23, 1994

4. “Canada’s disastrous health care system survives because of . . . the widespread fear that any reform might constitute ‘Americanization.’ ” —Jonah Goldberg, National Review, Nov. 25, 2002

5. “Did the fact that Canada has a socialist, government-run health care system—similar to the kind that President Obama wants to ram down the throats of Americans—kill acclaimed actress Natasha Richardson?” —Matthew Vadum, The American Spectator, March 21, 2009

6. “For cardiac bypass surgery, patients in Ontario are told they may have to wait six months for a surgery that Americans can often get right away.” —Sen. Mitch McConnell, June 8, 2009

7. “Canada needs to reform its health care system and let the private sector take over some of what the government has absorbed.” —Sarah Palin, This Hour Has 22 Minutes, November 25, 2009

8. “In Canada,they have a lottery. They have a lottery system. Who gets to go see a doctor this month in Canada?” —Glenn Beck, The Glenn Beck Program, July 15, 2009

9. “Is government-run health care in Canada taking away parents’ rights?” —Steve Doocy, Fox & Friends, February 23, 2011

10. “I probably don’t need to tell the people in Alaska about the failings of national socialized health care because it’s right in our neighbour and you see the results every day.” —Vice President Mike Pence, interview with Alaska radio station, 2017

and maybe we’ll just toss in a couple of those pesky facts thingys …

Jerry Falwell Jr: “It comes down to a question who is more credible in the eyes of the voters — the candidate or the accuser.”
“The same thing happened to President Trump a few weeks before his election last year except it was several women making allegations, he denied that any of them were true and the American people believed him and elected him the 45th president of the United States.”

Falwell noted that Moore has denied the allegations against him.

“And I believe the judge is telling the truth.”
”I don’t think this kind of story will change support for him among Christians since he has categorically denied it.”

THIS is pretty much how most of the right wing has decided to defend Roy Moore.
Sean Hannity last night was apoplectic as he defended his fellow abuser and attacked the victim. He even defended it by saying that the sex was “consensual.” This is how these low life fuckers always play these situations out. Deny, deflect, blame and re-victimize the accuser, wail tears of impotent rage and finally just blame it on everyone but the abuser. Now we have the added spectacle of the whole “fake news” mantra that falls outta these despicables every time they’re trapped for something they or their fellow Faux-Christians did.

Republicans are even trying to defend Roy Moore’s pedophilia using Jesus:

“Take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus.”@jimzeigler, Republican State Auditor of Alabama.


A few thoughts immediately come to mind:

  • How the fuck do these people sleep at night, and how do they look at themselves in the mirror when they wake up in whatever slime pit they obviously reside in?
  • These people haven’t just lost their minds in their pursuit of power, they have lost their souls, although it does make one wonder if they ever had one to start with.
  • Is membership in the religious right now to be seen as an automatic social marker of a person having deep moral depravities?
  • Would Hannity, the White House, Falwell and the rest of these pious pricks be saying the exact same thing if it was a Democrat being accused?
  • How can ANYONE now deny that Falwell and his ilk are anything more than snake-oil salesmen, grifters and fake Christians who wave the ‘good book’ around for any other reason than their own lust for money and power? These people prove almost daily that they have absolutely NO moral authority whatsoever.
  • These fuckers ARE the swamp.
  • What does @JerryFalwellJr have to hide that he would support Moore?
  • I always saw his dad as a low-life liar and grifter, but hey, way to go Junior, you just out-stenched the old man. Wow. Hard to do. But, then again, maybe it’s not so surprising. He is a phony TV evangelical huckster who was at one time even thrown out of his own church for his own not so saintly sexual behavior.
  • There’s also the statement from Scary Huckleberry Slanders in the White House press room a few weeks back where she stated that all 16 of Trump’s accusers were lying.

On CNN just now … a woman is asked if she would support Roy Moore – even if he had relations w 14yo? Her reply: “Yes. If good Lord forgave him, I should too.”
Fuck, I hate these people. I really do.
Once again people, this is why we can’t have nice things.
