Shrub's Torture Enabler Yoo Endorses Drump's SCOTUS Picks

http://crooksandliars.com/2016/05/john-yoo-delighted-trumps-supreme-court
snip:
Donald Trump has released a list of potential Supreme Court picks, and Bush administration torture enabler John Yoo has already announced at National Review that he's over the moon:

Everyone on the list is an outstanding legal conservative. All are young, smart, and committed. They would excel in any comparison with anyone whom Hillary Clinton would appoint to the Supreme Court.

Shrub's skeletons continue to rattle from the rethug closet.

Retch.

Drump's Baghdad Bob or Betty or something

snip:
CNN viewers slammed Donald Trump’s senior press representative, Healy Baumgardner, on Wednesday for a robotic interview that was instantly compared to a skit on Saturday Night Live.

During a segment about Trump’s pledge to speak with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, CNN host Carol Costello asked Baumgardner what the candidate meant when he praised the dictator in January as “amazing” for killing his own family members.

I think we should get used to this. To explain Drump's remarks his minions might as well shake the Magic 8ball.

I have resigned myself to horse race coverage for 2016

It's quite apparent that Drump's antics drive ratings and income for the media. Therefore, they will never call him out for the dangerous lunatic he is. False equivalency will reign and the grinning idiot pundits will discuss the "horse race" in order to line their network's pockets.

I used to get

unsolicited mail for mattresses and gym memberships. Now I get a letter sent to me from the American Legion advising me of my...

burial benefits.

I think I will reread Poe's "The Premature Burial."

tRump/Randian Ryan "Munich" Conference

Two clowns meet up to divide up the rethug electorate:

R: I get the Bundy vote.

T: Wait, that divides my White Pride vote. I need them.

R: Yes, but I want the "pull yourself up by your bootstraps" (without the bootstraps) block.

T: Well, I want all the science deniers.

R: Ok, but I keep the anti-vaxers. That will be huge.

T: Well, I need the straight out racists and people who want to put women in jail for making their own decisions about their body.

All I can say is: We have two Pieces of Shit in our time.

Saw The Temptations on Saturday night.

Such iconic music. Got to shake their hands. It was a great experience.

For one night the world was not a Ball of Confusion. This song was way ahead of its time.


Both Sides Do It Crapalooza

Now that tRump has been sanctified by the Rethugs get ready for the media to find ways not to call him out for his outrageous views. Rather, the media will find any statement from the Democratic Candidate, no matter who it is, straying from the perceived mainstream to be equal to any of tRumps outlandish statements.

On your mark, get set, retch.

Now that Carnival Cruz has left the scene I've noticed his followers in the media looking

bewildered and lost. I call them The Walking Ted.

"Liberal Media" NBC Nightly News Broadcasts Entire Show from tRump Tower

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/05/business/media/nbc-relocates-nightly-news-to-trump-tower.html?_r=0
snip:
In an unusual move on Wednesday, NBC relocated its flagship “Nightly News” broadcast six blocks north to Trump Tower, where Lester Holt conducted a live interview with Mr. Trump in his 26th-floor executive office.

Mr. Holt anchored the rest of the broadcast from the building’s gold-and-marble lobby— a signature Trump tableau — introducing segments about a Canadian wildfire and defective airbags as tourists milled behind him.

NBC plans to extend the same offer of broadcasting “Nightly News” from the home or headquarters of the eventual Democratic nominee, a network spokesman said Wednesday night.

News anchors frequently interview presidential candidates in their homes or campaign offices. Earlier Wednesday, Wolf Blitzer taped a conversation with Mr. Trump in the downstairs bar of the Trump Tower atrium, which was broadcast later in the day on CNN.

But few in the industry could recount another instance where an evening newscast — considered the symbol of a network news brand — shifted its entire broadcast to a candidate’s home turf.
I figure the other networks will be relocating to tRump Tower sometime soon.

Observation: Drivers with Dogs in the their laps

I love dogs. I saw today a person driving with a smallish dog in her lap. I figure with all the news about airbags injuring and killing people these days pet owners would be more protective of their animals. Maybe it's a case of it won't happen to me so never mind.
