I’m Not a Baby
Fox isn’t covering Trump’s rallies live now because the ratings suck. So Trump invited himself on Fox and Friends and talked for 47 minutes until they cut him off. Desperate for television attention, he did a 60 Minutes interview with Lesley Stahl and made a total ass out of himself, as usual. Nothing new. The only people who watched it were the drunk MAGAs who had just finishing watching football and were all amped up on beer and potato chips.
Trump admitted that if he had not casted doubt on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s credibility,“we would not have won.” What about mocking her at his MAGA rally? “Had I not made that speech, we would not have won.” He denied the reality of climate change and dismissed science as political bias. Then he told Lesley Stahl, “I’m president and you’re not.” He said he knows more about NATO than General Mattis does and that he isn’t a baby.
Trump says that General Mattis is “kind of a Democrat” and he doesn’t know how much longer he’ll stay.
The FEMA chief says the destruction left by Hurricane Michael is some of the worst he’s ever seen. Structures were completely demolished. He suggested that the president make an appearance so he’s going to show up today with Playdough and paper towels. But first he had to golf, do a few MAGA rallies, and get Kanye West to dance for him in the Oval Office on TV.
Republican hypocrite fun fact: Senator Marco Rubio’s state is being devoured by the warming sea but he’s not worried. There’s not much he can do about it and he’s not about to destroy the economy over it. Climate scientist Michael E. Mann responded, “The one thing that is insured to destroy our economy is unmitigated climate change.”
Trump commissioned an artist to paint him sitting at a table surrounded by Republican presidents in the style of dogs playing poker. It’s really tacky, like Trump, and it’s hanging in the White House, like Trump. Taxpayers probably paid for that POS Elvis on velvet hunk of junk. The other portrait he had done of himself was paid for by his charitable foundation which is now under investigation.
Kiss up Kevin McCarthy, the Republican congressman from California, has a brother in law who claimed to have Native American blood so he could get more than $7,000,000 in a no-bid federal contract at U.S. military installations and other government properties. Now where did he get that idea?
Speaking of Native American blood — Elizabeth Warren made her DNA results public. Trump can stop calling her Pocahontas now but he won’t.
While visiting Georgia Tech, Republican Senator David Perdue snatched a student’s phone who was trying to ask him a question about his support for a candidate that is suppressing the vote of black people in his state. Perdue lost his cool and snatched the student’s phone, as it was recording. Republicans taking phones should be motivation enough for young people to vote.
Trump admitted that Putin is “probably” involved in assassinations and poisonings, but so what, it’s not in our country.
The white supremacist “Proud Boys” who show up at rallies and beat liberals up don’t masturbate because they believe it depletes their supernatural male aura.
In the past week, there has been no Republican outrage that the president did not respond to Hurricane Michael. There has been no Republican outrage that the president has not condemned Saudi Arabia for murdering a journalist. There has been no Republican outrage that the president golfed for the umpteenthhundredth time. There has been no Republican outrage that the president does political rallies every night on the taxpayers’ dime. There has been no Republican outrage that the president is a 300 pound man baby and is destroying our democracy.
There has been no Republican outrage since inauguration day.
TODAY’S ACTION ITEM: Trump is trying to fix it so the scheduled Women’s March in January can’t go on. He is trying to use the National Park Service to shut down public dissent by getting it to deny Americans the right to protest their government at the White House and National Mall. We have until Monday, 10/15, to submit public comments in response to Trump’s crack down on our First Amendment rights. Take 30 seconds to submit a comment here opposing these restrictions.
