Trump rejected the White House’s plan to release a statement praising John McCain’s service to his country. He refused to call him a hero. The President of the United States snubbed Senator John McCain in death. Instead of a customary, thoughtful, presidential, official statement, he opted for a meme with a full size photo of himself — I’m president and you’re not.
When Sarah Palin was asked to comment on John McCain’s passing, she said it’s too bad that there were people who didn’t serve him well on his presidential campaign.
The President of the United States has been banned from two funerals and a royal wedding.
Karl Rove expressed his sympathies for John McCain’s passing. Never mind that he started a rumor in 2000 that John McCain had an illegitimate black daughter to keep racists from voting for him in the south. Dark skinned daughter? Yes. Illegitimate? No. She was adopted by John and Cindy McCain from Bangladesh.
3 people were killed and 11 hurt in a mass shooting in Jacksonville, Florida, and Trump never mentioned it because a white guy did it. He did however, tweet about his approval ratings: “Over 90% approval rating for your all time favorite (I hope) President within the Republican Party and 52% overall. This despite all of the made up stories by the Fake News Media trying endlessly to make me look as bad and evil as possible. Look at the real villains please!”
A quick overview of gun laws in Florida: No permits required to purchase, no registration, no license required, no assault weapons law, no magazine capacity restriction, no background checks for private sales, no local autonomy. Oh and you can shoot first and claim stand your ground later. Don’t go to Florida. You might not make it out of there alive.
Republican primaries are about who’s Trumpier. In Arizona, three Republicans are competing for the MAGA vote to take Senator Jeff Flake’s seat; 86 year old birther and convicted criminal, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who Trump pardoned so he wouldn’t have to go to jail for putting immigrants in concentration camps, Congressmember Martha McSally who may have said she was disgusted by the Access Hollywood tape and was against Trump’s wall, but will pretend otherwise if she wants the crazy vote, and then there’s whack job Kelli Ward who accused John McCain of trying to sabotage her campaign by dying. She blamed him partially for the murder of Mollie Tibbetts because he should have done a better job of securing the border and keeping murderous immigrants from coming here and killing our daughters.
In Minnesota, three-time loser Jim Hagedorn, the sexist, homophobic, racist blogger, is taking another shot at running for Congress. He easily won the Republican primary even though he is on record for saying things like, “California Republicans should nominate good looking female actresses with nice boobs,” calling Elizabeth Dole Bob Dole in drag and Sarah Palin hot, homosexuality should be a crime, Muslims wear diapers on their heads and the only good Indian is a dead Indian. He says that Abraham Lincoln’s face should be replaced with Ronald Reagan’s face on Mount Rushmore. Hagedorn is doing a fundraiser with Mike Pence on Thursday.
The House Republicans thought they’d be able to catch the Year of the Woman wave and recruit more women to run for Congress this year but nope. Right now, 10% of the Republican conference is women. It could be half that after the midterms because being a female Republican is oxymoronic. The pink pussy hat is not a good look if you’re Republican.
What’s worse? Finding out that Donald Trump is your father or that the Children of the Corn are your half siblings?
South African farmers have asked Trump to “leave them the hell alone” and not comment on something he knows nothing about.
If Mueller goes by the current policy of not indicting any political players 60 days before an election, he’ll have to make his next move within the next 9 days. Who’s going to be indicted next? Junior? Jared? Roger Stone?
Roger Stone has created a defense fund for himself, begging for money because the deep state liberals are coming for him.
When Trump dies he’ll finally get his wall. It will be built around his grave with barbed wire at the top to keep people out so they won’t piss on his grave every day. That would really smell.
TODAY’S ACTION ITEM: Take a moment of silence for the passing of the last great Republican, John McCain, and then text WAIT to 43700. Do it every day. Tell Mitch McConnell to WAIT on any hearings for Brett Kavanaugh.
