Onion: Biden Searching White House One Last Time For Missing Pet Snake

Biden Searching White House One Last Time For Missing Pet Snake



http://www.theonion.com/article/biden-searching-white-house-one-last-time-missing--55080

WASHINGTON—Urging staffers to keep their eyes peeled for a “scaly little fucker without any legs,” Vice President Joe Biden reportedly searched the White House one last time Wednesday for his missing 12-year-old pet coral snake, Fruit Loop. “Look, I just found a discarded skin on a chair in the Roosevelt Room, so I know he’s still slithering around here someplace,” said Biden, who sources confirmed rummaged through the drawers of the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office and crawled around on his hands and knees peering underneath furniture for the 3-foot-long snake. “Fruit Loop can’t be far—he usually hauls ass straight for the East Wing whenever he flies the coop. If you hear something weird going on in the pipes, just get me on the horn and I’ll come lickety-split with a pole to snatch him. I can’t fuck up again—I’m already on thin ice after he mixed it up with Bo during the 2014 Easter Egg Roll.” At press time, Biden was dangling a dead mouse near the White House kitchen’s oven and calling the snake’s name.

WOW! Sean Spicer: "He is committed to not just Day 1, but Day 2, Day 3..."



After being sworn in during a ceremony at the U.S. Capitol on Friday, Trump is poised to wield one of the most powerful tools of his office, the presidential pen, for executive actions that can be implemented without the input of Congress.

"He is committed to not just Day 1, but Day 2, Day 3 of enacting an agenda of real change, and I think that you're going to see that in the days and weeks to come," Trump spokesman Sean Spicer said on Thursday, telling reporters to expect activity on Friday, during the weekend and early next week.

The top items on the agenda for Trump, who has presided over a sprawling business empire but has never before held public office, mirror the populist pledges that fueled his election victory: immigration curbs and job creation, particularly in the manufacturing sector, Spicer said.

Trump's advisers vetted more than 200 potential executive orders for him to consider signing on healthcare, climate policy, immigration, energy and numerous other matters but it was not clear how many orders he will approve, according to a member of the Trump transition team who was not authorized to talk to the press.

AND...the Great Family Divide begins.

Got an email from my brother in law. He and my sister are rabid pro-Trump. He went off on a tangent about how 60% of the people work, supporting the 40% who don't, and Trump will put an end to that.

I shared my thoughts on Paul fucking Ryan, and his plans for the "safety net."

I also said "FUCK Trump" twice in my reply, and closed with "PS: FUCK Trump."

He replied:

"Then we better stay away from politics. So, we will be glued to the TV tomorrow cheering. So no more politics with you. Lets stick to funny stuff. I thought you were a Trump guy and (my girlfriend) was for Sanders but I was wrong. I'll inform (my sister) to not try and Trumptize you."


Making America great again...one family at a time.

@realDonaldTrump that's not how people write, Donald. You need to put the paper flat on the desk, and open the notepad.

"Writing my inaugural address"? @realDonaldTrump doesn't need to be so shy about his sketch - V. Putin must be v. proud



Putin: Our girls of loose morals are undoubtedly the best in the world, but Trump didn't...



]Kremlin and other officials have said they will reserve judgment about comments made by Trump or his cabinet picks until after the inauguration this week.

Putin came to Trump’s defense himself on Tuesday. He said claims in the leaked dossier, such as Russia having a tape of the billionaire-turned-politician cavorting with sex workers, in Moscow are “obvious fabrications.”

“I find it hard to believe that he rushed to some hotel to meet girls of loose morals, although ours are undoubtedly the best in the world,” Putin said.

Lee Greenwood doesn't want his annoying, jingoistic POS novelty hit to be "used politically"



When country singer Lee Greenwood wrote the thoroughly patriotic hit "God Bless the U.S.A." in 1983, he'd done so in the wake of a tragedy: The Soviet Union had shot down a Korean Air flight that had departed from the U.S., killing 269 passengers including a member of the House of Representatives. "That event made me pay attention to international news, but I'd wanted to write 'U.S.A.' for an awful long time," he tells Rolling Stone. However, he says, he did not intend the single, which came out in the spring of 1984, to be political.

"I just wanted to have something that would seed the culture and really give everybody something to cling onto, to unite," he says. "And then it was because Ronald Reagan became president and the use of that song for the campaign, but it was not necessarily for the Republican Party, because I really didn't want it to be used politically and still don't. … In the ensuing years, it was Katrina, the Gulf War and then the (9/11) attack on America, and each time it became a little bit more in the fiber of America."

Despite not wanting the song to be taken politically, Greenwood, age 74, has performed it at the inaugurations of three presidents – Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush – and will do so again on Thursday, January 19th, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial alongside Toby Keith and 3 Doors Down, among others, as part of Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration" concert. The singer's reaction to his invitation, as he tells Rolling Stone, was, "Man, this is going to be awesome."

I think he's going to be a great president. I love his slogan, "Let's make America great again," and I'm confident that he'll take a good shot at it.

Senate panel overwhelmingly approves Trump Pentagon pick

Source: Reuters

The U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee voted overwhelmingly on Wednesday to recommend President-elect Donald Trump's pick for Secretary of Defense, retired Marine General James Mattis.

The committee voted 26-1 to back Mattis' nomination when it is received by the full Senate from Trump after he is sworn in as president. As a result, Mattis' nomination will be sent directly to the Senate for a vote without referral to the committee.

The identity of the senator who voted against Mattis was not immediately available.

Congress cleared the way for Mattis' quick confirmation last week by backing a waiver that would allow him to lead the Pentagon despite retiring from active duty as a Marine general only in 2013.

Joe Lieberman disses the entire education establishment at Betsy DeVoss confirmation hearing

Joe Lieberman disses the entire education establishment at Betsy DeVos’s confirmation hearing



Former senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut on Tuesday introduced Betsy DeVos at her Senate confirmation hearing for education secretary in the upcoming Trump administration — and in the process he dissed the entire education establishment.

DeVos is a Michigan billionaire tapped by President-elect Donald Trump to run the Education Department. Supporters see her as a tireless advocate for school choice while critics say she has spent decades working to privatize the public education system.

“She is disciplined, organized, knows how to set goals and then develop practical plans to achieve them. She is really a purpose-driven team builder,” he said. He noted that the Department of Education is bigger than anything she — or virtually all of the senators on the panel — had ever run but said she is ready to take on the task.

And then, he said: “I know that some people are questioning her qualifications to be secretary of education, and too many of those questions seem to me to be based on the fact that she doesn’t come from within the education establishment. But honestly I believe that today, that’s one of the most important qualifications you could have for this job.”
