Mike Luckovich: Kool-aid time!

Two of the Mueller questions are about specific Trump tweets




Rebuttal to WHCA Statement re: Michelle Wolf

WH correspondents -- if you want people to respect you, you need to do things worthy of respect.

Expose corruption instead of covering for liars. Work to inform and educate the public instead of protecting the cruel and powerful.

Do your damn jobs. Michelle Wolf did hers.



Let's Revisit 2016 Journalmism: "It May Not Be Good for America, but It's Damn Good for CBS"

Leslie Moonves on Donald Trump: "It May Not Be Good for America, but It's Damn Good for CBS"
11:26 AM PST 2/29/2016 by Paul Bond

Leslie Moonves can appreciate a Donald Trump candidacy.

Not that the CBS executive chairman and CEO might vote for the Republican presidential frontrunner, but he likes the ad money Trump and his competitors are bringing to the network.

"It may not be good for America, but it's damn good for CBS," he said of the presidential race.

Moonves called the campaign for president a "circus" full of "bomb throwing," and he hopes it continues.

"Most of the ads are not about issues. They're sort of like the debates," he said.

"Man, who would have expected the ride we're all having right now? ... The money's rolling in and this is fun," he said.



The most powerful line of Wolf's speech, which will inevitably get overshadowed by what she said about Sanders, was this on the media and Trump:

"He has helped you sell your papers and your books and your TV.
You helped create this monster and now you are profiting from him."

As people focused on a comedian's comments last night here's how potus characterized immigrants...

as people rushing across the border to game the system so they can ultimately vote for Democrats.


spit take...

my friend just told me i had the perfect smoky eye so i punched her in the face


...I'm sorry, did you say something about someone being "filthy"?

"I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn't get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she's now got the big phony tits and everything..." -Donald J. Trump

Trump expected to address NRA's annual meeting

(CNN)President Donald Trump is expected to speak at the National Rifle Association's annual meeting later this week in Dallas, two sources familiar with the matter told CNN.

The trip would be Trump's third consecutive address to the NRA's annual meeting. But this year, Trump is set to speak to the gun lobby just two months after he drew concerns from conservatives after urging lawmakers to not fear the NRA and suggesting law enforcement officials should take guns away from dangerous individuals without due process.

A White House spokesperson said the White House is "finalizing exact details," but declined to comment on plans for the President to address the gun rights group.

Plans for the NRA speech come just more than two months after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, reignited a national debate about gun laws in the US and spawned a student-led push to reform gun laws around the country.

Richard Painter will Seek US Senate in Minnesota

Former George W. Bush ethics lawyer ditches GOP, to seek U.S. Senate in Minn. as Democrat
Richard Painter will take on Tina Smith, who holds the seat now as Al Franken's successor.

Richard Painter, a longtime Republican who was chief ethics lawyer for George W. Bush's White House, intends to run for the U.S. Senate in Minnesota this year as a Democrat, according to a filing he made recently with federal elections officials.

Painter, a persistent and frequent critic of President Donald Trump on national cable TV news appearances and on Twitter, is expected to announce his candidacy at a Monday news conference.

He's running for Democrat Al Franken's former seat. Franken resigned Jan. 2 in the wake of numerous sexual harassment allegations.

Gov. Mark Dayton appointed Lt. Gov. Tina Smith to be his successor. That seat is up this fall in a special election, and Smith has said she intends to run for a full six-year term.

Minnesota's other Senate seat, held by Democrat Amy Klobuchar, is also up this fall, although she is widely expected to win another term.
