I had a Trumper in my Uber yesterday

I usually don't talk about politics in my Uber but when someone goes out of their way to change the subject to Trump I can't help it.

Yesterday a guy got into my car and a story came on the radio about an Uber driver who was deactivated because he live streamed his Uber rides. I made a comment about that and he says:

Trumper: As well he should be. Michael Cohen has put himself in a lot of trouble by leaking that tape of Trump.

Me: Well, it probably shouldn't have been leaked, but if I was Trump's lawyer I would have been taking my conversations with him too.

Trumper:. Why's that?

Me: Well, he lies all the time and has been known to not pay his contractors.

Trumper:. When did he lie?. well, that's just to the media... (I'm thinking, this guy thinks it's okay to lie to the media!)

Me:. Well, I'm not going to get into that, but I even heard he didn't pay some of his lawyers, so yeah, I would be recording.

He didn't say much after that

Those times when I point out something untrue on Facebook and I'm told to "cease and desist"

Today my mother the Trumper posted a really nice picture of Melania and that's fine. She's not an ugly woman (at least not on the outside). And everyone was commenting about how lovely she is and someone just had to say something untrue.

She said: "I've never seen such vicious HATEFULNESS against a FLOTUS"

I had to comment "Really? What about all those memes floating around the internet with Michelle Obama as an ape? And what about when Obama wore a tan suit?"


She answered that I was right, Eleanor Roosevelt was made fun of because of her teeth and Barbara Bush was made fun of because of her pearls and because she looked old but that now I should "cease and desist"...

In other words STFU.

So I posted "Well, that was really rude"

Then my mother went in and deleted all the comments!

Then I posted "Interesting, someone says something rude to me and I'm not able to respond?" and that's where it stands.

Is TV Too Gay? Bryan Fischer (American Family Association) Vs. Ray Hill (Gay Rights Activist)

Sorry for the source but the interview was on our local Fox News channel so it's our only source.

Not sure if this is on national Fox News or if this is just local because I'm in Houston and 26 is our local station and sometimes our local Fox Station doesn't tow the Foxnews line in their local reporting. Ray is a local treasure. He took a case to the Supreme Court and won. He is the reason you cannot be arrested just for cursing at the police.

Ray shared this on Facebook - his comment is "Good old fashioned shouting match on Fox News."

Maybe now Texas can pass a marijuana decriminalization bill

It's been quite a few years since the Texas Democratic Party started putting marijuana reform planks in their platform. Now the Republicans have put it in their platform too.

Actress Sara Gilbert Named CIA Director



Chief of Staff John Kelly immediately tweeted a correction, claiming the president had confused Gilbert with CIA Deputy Director Gina Haspel. The two women bear a striking physical resemblance to one another.

Is this too rude? Or not rude enough?

I posted a link that I found here on Facebook.

The comment was: Is It "Too Soon" To Remind Everyone That PUTIN Used The NRA To Bankroll Trump's Campaign?

And the link was to a story from Rolling Stone with the headline: The Trump-Russia-NRA Connection: Hereís What You Need to Know

A Facebook friend (more like an acquaintance from High School - I'm 59 years old) commented: Fake News

I took a while to answer, wasn't sure what to say. Today I finally answered:


Canned response! Can't make any real response or refute the article, so you just say Fake News. Why don't you take your Fake President and shove him where the sun don't shine!

Raj Shah's immigrant parents

Anyone know the circumstances of his parents immigration and if there was any "chain migration" involved?

He is the jerk (Trump's Principal Deputy White House Press Secretary) who was on Chris Cuomo talking a lot of shit a few minutes ago.

According to Wikipedia:

Shah's parents immigrated to the U.S. from Mumbai with origins in Gujarat, India. His father came to the U.S. for studies in the 1970s, then moved back to India. After their marriage, his father and mother returned to the US in late 1970s, living first in Chicago and then in Connecticut,[3] he an engineer, she a dentist.[1] Shah was born and raised in Connecticut.[3]

Seen on Facebook

Trump loyalists and Hillary haters keep scrolling!

Another idea: Dems take the House, House elects Hillary as Speaker (Speaker doesnít have to be a member of the House), then impeach Trump & Pence which makes Hillary President! Yes, thatís the ticket!
