This sign in the Oval Office celebrates milestones, but I dunno...it doesn't fill me with confidence

Lions, tigers, bears oh my! UPDATE: Kellyane - media coverage of Trump isn't productive or patriotic



Conway: Media coverage of Trump ‘neither productive nor patriotic’

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/06/30/kellyanne-conway-trump-social-media-attacks-240139

“I like the fact that the president uses social media platforms to connect directly with Americans and in this case, what (White House spokeswoman) Sarah Sanders said yesterday is true, that the president normally does not draw first blood. He is a counterpuncher as he said on the campaign trail,” Conway said. “There are personal attacks about his physicalities, about his fitness for office. He’s called a goon, thug, mentally ill, talking about dementia, armchair psychologists all over television every day.

“It doesn’t help the American people to have a president covered in this light,” she continued. “I’m sorry. It’s neither productive nor patriotic. The toxicity is over the top.”

Stephanopoulos also presented Conway with a clip of an interview she sat for in August on his Sunday morning political talk show, “This Week,” in which she was asked about the president’s habit of hurling attacks and responded, “I don't like it when people hurl personal insults. That will never change. I’m a mother of four small children and it would be a terrible example to feel otherwise.”

Conway did not address whether or not her past statement held true regarding the president’s statements this week but said that the clip proved her point as it pertained to the media, which she said has been “filled with raw sewage about him and his fitness for office.”

Faithful Hannity hears dog whistle, ready to resurrect the Scarborough / Lori Klausutis story

Fox News host Sean Hannity has engaged in a lengthy feud with MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough that has grown nastier as Morning Joe has taken a more critical tone towards President Donald Trump. Therefore, when Trump took to Twitter this week to personally attack Joe and his co-host (and fiancee) Mika Brzezinski and blew up the news cycle, Hannity made sure to throw himself directly into the mix.

And on Saturday, he made a veiled threat to the couple that he was just about ready to reveal some dirt about them:

"I'm am very very close to going "there" with Joe and Mika. Sick of their BS."

Yes, Hannity is indeed referencing the story of the dead intern found in Scarborough’s district office when he was still a Congressman in 2001. While there is absolutely no evidence Scarborough had anything to do with the office worker’s death, as it was found that she died from heart problems and hitting her head on a desk, conspiracy theories were tossed around claiming Joe was responsible and that’s why he resigned from Congress.

In this case, humorless @cnn + others in MSM cable news should lighten up a bit. This is actually a funny retweet...a joke.

Someone needs to tell Keith Olbermann about Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell.

HOW, exactly, will America do an end-run around Ryan and McConnell and "remove" Trump?

Because as long as one or both need to sign off on it, I'm not seeing it.

WHAT EXACTLY is Olbermann suggesting?

Resign, now, or be forced from office. You have no place in a freedom-loving country.

BIGGER than HEALTHCARE! BIGGER than TAX CUTS! Trump BOLDLY tackles THE WAR ON CHRISTMAS!

President Donald Trump spent an extra $400,000 of taxpayer dollars to fly from Washington, D.C. to his resort in New Jersey then back to Washington again for “the first ever Freedom Rally” at the Kennedy Center Saturday. During his speech, Trump decided “freedom” meant celebrating Christmas in July.

Trump began his speech by attacking the media and touting his election win, as he is known to do.

He went on to involved the memory of Benjamin Franklin and noted that at the Constitutional Convention, Franklin reminded his fellow delegates to “bow their head in prayer. I remind you, we’re going to start saying Merry Christmas again.”

Trump closed his speech to encouraging chants and assured supporters, “For those that are curious, we will build the wall.”

The fascinating psychology of the Kellyanne Conway dynamic and the "victim mentality"

STEP 1: Get a job as Trump's "mouthpiece"

STEP 2: Deliver any and every message Trump hands you

STEP 3: Get caught in multiple lies

STEP 4: Claim that the lies are actually "alternative facts"

STEP 5: When step 4 fails, claim that you are being attacked because "liberals" can't "handle strong women"

STEP 6: Once every last shred of your credibility has vanished, once you have been banned from certain networks and / or shows, double down on Step 5, claim that no matter how much unprecedented, historic, dazzling progress made by our President (presented by more "alternative facts), respond by saying that the "liberal media" only wants to see the President fail, and that not only are they undermining the selfless efforts of our President (who just burned up $800,000 of taxpayer money to go to the golf course in New Jersey and then fly back for a concert in Washington DC), they are also attacking you personally because you can't handle a "strong woman" (Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and many others apparently exist in some invisible, "alternate" universe).

STEP 7: Double down, triple down, quadruple down until you get to the point where people who should know better start taking the cheapest of cheap shots at you (like the recent story about someone saying her face looks like it has been "hit by a shovel". Use this as undeniable proof that you were right about points 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.
