Michelle Wolf : Mr. Trump, she said, “has helped you sell your papers and your books and your TV. You helped create this monster and now you are profiting from him.” AND A TRUER WORD WAS NEVER SPOKEN!

If this has been posted, it deserves to be seen again.


This last weekend, Nazis marched in Newnan, Georgia.


Proud. Unashamed. Out in the open. Unafraid to show their faces.

When Nazis aren't afraid to walk down the streets of America, and black Americans are, well you'd better wake up and hear the fucking alarm.

This is just stunning.

Michael Cohen to Plead the Fifth in Stormy Daniels Lawsuit

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney, will invoke the 5th Amendment in the civil lawsuit brought by former porn actress Stormy Daniels in California, according to a new court filing. The documents cite the ongoing criminal probe against Cohen in New York, where his office and home were raided earlier this month by the FBI. Daniels is suing Cohen and Trump in California, alleging that the non-disclosure agreement about an alleged affair with Trump is invalid because the president never signed it. The suit also accuses Cohen of defamation, claiming that the lawyer's denial of her affair with the president “meant to convey that Ms. Clifford is a liar.”

Remember when they accused Hillary of "pay to play"? Check out Mulvaney.

Mulvaney, Watchdog Bureau’s Leader, Advises Bankers on Ways to Curtail Agency

Mick Mulvaney, the interim director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, told banking industry executives on Tuesday that they should press lawmakers hard to pursue their agenda, and revealed that, as a congressman, he would meet only with lobbyists if they had contributed to his campaign.

“We had a hierarchy in my office in Congress,” Mr. Mulvaney, a former Republican lawmaker from South Carolina, told 1,300 bankers and lending industry officials at an American Bankers Association conference in Washington. “If you’re a lobbyist who never gave us money, I didn’t talk to you. If you’re a lobbyist who gave us money, I might talk to you.”

At the top of the hierarchy, he added, were his constituents. “If you came from back home and sat in my lobby, I talked to you without exception, regardless of the financial contributions,” said Mr. Mulvaney, who received nearly $63,000 from payday lenders for his congressional campaigns.

Mr. Mulvaney, who also runs the White House budget office, is a longtime critic of the Obama-era consumer bureau, including while serving in Congress. He was tapped by President Trump in November to temporarily run the bureau, in part because of his promise to sharply curtail it.


These people are unbelievable. They don't even try to hide the corruption anymore.

NRA supporters are blowing up Yeti coolers. Yeti says its all a big mistake.

Yeti coolers are the hottest coolers around. They are also wildly expensive, between $250 and $1,300, depending on the size. So a discount on a Yeti, like the one the company offered to the NRA and other organizations, is no small thing.

Still, the price of the coolers didn’t stop some Yeti owners from blowing them up in ritual anger after the National Rifle Association claimed that Yeti was terminating the discount as part of an NRA boycott.


The letter, sent by former NRA president and current lobbyist Marion P. Hammer, said the company “declined to do business with The NRA Foundation” without prior notice and “refused to say why.”


“When we notified the NRA Foundation and the other organizations of this change, YETI explained that we were offering them an alternative customization program broadly available to consumers and organizations, including the NRA Foundation,” Yeti said. “These facts directly contradict the inaccurate statement the NRA-ILA distributed on April 20.”


It appears that there are a lot of dead Yeti products out there that were needlessly killed due to misleading statements by the NRA. I wonder just how stupid some of those who blew up their expensive coolers and mugs feel now.

WATCH: Gun nuts are shooting their $300 Yeti coolers after the company cut ties with the NRA

Yeti manufactures rugged outdoor coolers that are normally quite pricey, as a single Yeti cooler costs between $250 and $350.

Although traditionally loved by hunters, Yeti this past weekend angered many of its own gun-toting customers when it cut ties with the National Rifle Association.

The howls of protests from NRA members included outraged gun owners filming themselves defacing and even shooting their Yeti coolers.
