Delish! After a hit by the Donald, Chris Christie has become a mob of one

I suspect one reason mob movies are so popular is that they mirror what happens in real life, just on a more brutal scale.

Typical was the scene (see below) in the 1990 classic "Goodfellas" in which the character played by Jersey's own Joe Pesci is told that he is going to become a made man in the Mafia.

He is instead summarily dispatched with a shot to the back of the head because he did something that displeased the big boss.

That's what happened to our governor last week - on a symbolic level of course.

Chris Christie didn't cross the Don, but he did cross the Donald. So soon after celebrating Trump's election Tuesday as the capo di tutti capi of America, Christie learned that he was unceremoniously dispatched as head of the Trump transition team.

Exactly what Christie did to upset Trump was not made public, but my sources inside the Republican Party say that it was a collection of offenses.

Among the offenses was Christie's effort to put some space between himself and Trump after that "Access Hollywood" video came out with all of those rude remarks about women by the Donald. At a time when Trump needed defenders, Christie called those remarks "indefensible."

Then there was the Bridgegate trial, which took up most of the final month of the campaign.
It's fun watching this scumbag destroyed - Bridgegate will haunt him to the grave or the prison -whichever comes first.

Congrats to Maggie Hassan and Kamala Harris

Beating Kelly Ayotte was no easy task.

New Hamp­shire Gov. Maggie Hassan, a grad­uate of Northeastern’s School of Law, was elected to the U.S. Senate last week, unseating Repub­lican Sen. Kelly Ayotte in a tightly con­tested race that drew the nation’s attention.

“I am deeply grateful to the people of New Hamp­shire for the great trust that they have once again bestowed upon me, and I will work every day to honor it as their United States sen­ator,” Hassan said.

Well done California. Kamala's father is Jamaican and her mother is from India.

By the way there is a run off in December for the Senate seat in Louisiana

Imagine what is being said when not one decent celebrity is endorsing

Groper Don the Con; not one decent newspaper but Network TV and Cable cheered this despicable human being on.
I won't forget that.

As far as I know once you're in line

you are allowed to vote. It's always been that way.

Groper Don the Con lies and lies and lies

Tur also reported that Trump said Brady voted for him and that Brady gave Trump his blessing to share that news with the New Hampshire crowd. Brady and Trump are known to be friends, though Brady has stopped short of endorsing Trump for president.

However, WEEI digital content specialist Scott McLaughlin tweeted that in an interview on the “Kirk & Callahan” show on Monday, Brady said he hadn’t voted yet. McLaughlin said early voting in Massachusetts ended last Friday. So there’s some miscommunication involved, or Trump or Brady is lying.

Records show Tom Brady's voter registration is currently inactive and he's not enrolled in a party.

Who/what will Groper Don the Con blame for his loss in the coming days?

Will he just disappear and remain silent or tweet until his lil fingers blister?

Stevie Wonder: Voting For Trump Is Like Asking Me To Drive

f you had an emergency situation and needed to go to the hospital, and you had to get there right away, would you want me driving your car?” he asked, to which the reporter replied “no.” He added, “Because I’m not an experienced driver, right?”

The 66-year-old then said Clinton’s track record alone makes her a better candidate.

“So my belief is that Hillary is an experienced person of the government, and she has spent 30 years with a commitment. Not to mention that her parents taught her in a kinder way, to have respect and love for all people. That’s the person I want to govern, to be the leader of this nation,” he said.

The 25-time Grammy award winner also slammed Trump for using his platform to make negative remarks about women, Muslims and Latinos. Wonder said that he would hate to have the “last years of my life in a place of pessimism” under a Trump presidency.

“This is not a reality show. This is life in reality,” he said. “So I’m with her because I believe in where we are, and where we are going to go. I have always believed that America is great. We’re just going to make it greater.”
