Has anyone heard any reporters on TV or radio...

...call this contradiction out?
Considering what General Kelly said today.

But the wealthy need tax cuts?


No one supports the Las Vegas shooter however...

...when terror was raining down on hundreds of thousands in Bahgdad, and while mothers and their children were being slaughtered, poll after poll revealed up to 75% supported W's illegal invasion and mass murder.

We live in strange times.

2 Scoops responds to tragedies and other topics


On the Las Vegas gunman:
"This was a sick person, but probably smart." He congratulated the police for acting so quickly, and said many of the victims he met "support what I do."

On the hurricane response:
"We got very high marks. We got A-pluses."

On Puerto Rico's problems before the storm:
Trump said the electric grid was a disaster. "They've got a lot of problems, and on top of that they get hit by two hurricanes."

On San Juan's mayor:
"We have a mayor of San Juan Puerto Rico who didn't attend meetings, who didn't work with FEMA, who really did not do a very good job, in fact did a very poor job, and she was the lone voice that we saw and of course that's the only voice the media wanted to talk to... she's not a capable person."

On criticism of him tossing paper towels into a crowd of victims:
"They had these beautiful, soft towels. Very good towels.... I was having fun, they were having fun. They said, 'throw 'em to me! Throw 'em to me Mr. President!"

On responding to tragedies:
"In one sense you hate to see it, but in another sense you feel like you can do a good job, you're helping people, so you feel good."

On Israel and Palestine:
"We're gonna work [toward a peace deal]... I want to give that a shot before I even think about moving the embassy to Jerusalem."

On the Middle East:
"The Middle East when I took over was a mess, and it's much less of a mess now but we have problems."

On the Iran deal:
"I can tell you I'm very unhappy with the deal.... They're literally causing trouble, predominantly in the Middle East. I believe they're funding North Korea.... that doesn't pertain to the deal but in my opinion it does because it's called the spirit of a deal.... You will see what I will be doing but Iran is a bad player and they will be dealt with as a bad player."

On the filibuster rule:
"They have to get rid of it... It's a death sentence. I told Mitch McConnell that the other day, and frankly" he's not there yet.

On his tax plan:
"I'm really focused on the middle class, and I'm really focused on companies because companies create jobs.... We're going to have the biggest tax cut in history."


Gorsuch sounds like a complete A-hole

After his Senate confirmation last April, Gorsuch skipped the first scheduled justices-only meeting even though Roberts encouraged him to attend. He fired off a raft of dissenting opinions, some that seemed to scold his colleagues. He has dominated oral arguments, cutting off and correcting other justices, expounding on the scope of the Constitution.


Beautiful and Soft Paper Towels



San Juan Mayor is getting desperate

While Donnie 2 Scoops golfs.



It's not just tax cuts they want

I think another big reason Republicans are tolerating tRump is control of our judicial system.
They got their way with the SCOTUS and now they are stacking the courts with rightwingers at a rapid pace.

Trump Is Filling Court Seats With Anti-LGBTQ, Anti-Abortion Judges
“Trump’s speed in nominating judges has been perhaps the most successful aspect of his presidency.”

"Let them eat..."
