Corey Booker is saying it the right way--

"Trump is weak and submissive." (This was on All In, MSNBC.)

That's what we should be saying.
Weak.
Submissive.
Lickspittle.
Coward.
Pushover.
Weakling.
Quisling.

Loser.

Is there even one Republican who is expressing queasiness?

I know it's too much to ask for consistency with the GOP, but after 8 years of them bashing Obama for his courtesy to other leaders, you'd think Trump's obeisance to Putin would twinge at them just a bit.

In the last month, he's made it clear that he considers Russia and North Korea major powers, that Putin is to be fawned over, and that the our best allies are "foes".

And now this news conference, where he's so obviously kowtowing to Putin--
But they probably will come away and say how tough he was. He'll say it.

And at the very same time, he is telling everyone that our Dept of Justice and FBI are criminally persecuting Putin and him.

As the Birchers used to say, "None dare call it treason!"

Well, the GOP certainly won't.

Did Trump Just Help Stop Brexit?

Source: NY Magazine

The Brexiteers’ next gambit was nihilistically lashing out, by using Trump to piss all over May’s compromise, which he duly did, the day after behaving like someone on PCP at the NATO summit. “I would have done [Brexit] much differently. I actually told Theresa May how to do it, but she didn’t listen to me,” he told the Murdoch-owned Sun, adding that any new trade deal with the U.S. would be off the table if May got her way. He also went on to tout Boris Johnson as a potential alternative prime minister. And this all spilled out at the very moment May was pleading with Trump at the dinner at Blenheim Palace to give her a new trade deal to ease the pain of leaving the E.U. It was a brutal and unprecedented attack on a sitting prime minister as she was actually hosting the American president for a visit. It was a knee-capping.

It was also, in my immediate view, a serious Brexiteer blunder. Trump is despised in Britain, as he is across Europe. His endorsement of the Brexiteers at this critical moment is humiliating for May but potentially a boon for her as well. If Donald Trump is now the face of Brexit in Britain, Brexit is in trouble. And Brits will not take kindly to their own prime minister being dictated to and humiliated by an American president, as he lands on British soil. That he is also touting Boris will only deepen the reaction.

Ends with an epic rant about Trump's lies.

I know it's Fox News

"When asked in the Fox News interview if Comey should be locked up, Trump agreed. But he also hedged a bit."

The press really has to stop using Trump's wording in questions ("Fake news," "locked up," etc.). Even if Comey had committed a possible crime, he shouldn't be "locked up." "Investigated" or "indicted," okay. But the reporter using the term "locked up" echoes Trump's "Lock her up!" which suggests that the president has the power to order people into prison. The reporter is accepting by that terminology that immediate imprisonment without trial is normal.

I don't like them even accepting Trump's version of what might have happened, but at least, "Do you think Comey committed a crime, and if so, what is the crime?"
pushes him to go beyond his thuggish threats. I wish they would ask, "Please name the actual crimes you are accusing them of."

Our gov't spokesperson: "You have a great day, you're a piece of trash,"

This is from an Atlantic article about the resignation of a young EPA aide who is reportedly "tired of being thrown under the bus" to protect Scott Pruitt.

The EPA officially is apparently not happy about this young aide refusing anymore to take the blame for Pruitt's corruptions.

When reached by phone, Jahan Wilcox, an EPA spokesperson, would not comment. He said: “You have a great day, you’re a piece of trash.”


Think about it. Our taxpayer dollars are going to pay Wilcox.

Jim Jordan: Chutzpah

You know the old joke about the definition of "chutzpah"==

The man who killed his parents who asks the judge for mercy because he's an orphan.

Well, Congressman Jim Jordan "Freedom Caucus" did that today.

He called for another special counsel to investigate the FBI because, he says, they're obviously corrupt at the top and this is why they are investigating Trump. He pointed to the firing and reassignment of most of the top officials as evidence that something must be rotten in the FBI, else why would they be so bad they were fired?

You remember those guys-- Comey, and all the aides Comey told about Trump's obstruction of justice attempts. IOW, Trump fired/reassigned them to get rid of them and taint them as witnesses, and Jordan uses their firing as evidence that they had it in for Trump-- not that Trump had it in for them.

It's breathtaking. I know I shouldn't say this, but I sure hope law enforcement officers notice how in their worship/coverup of Trump, the GOP is trying to make the FBI the enemy of the US. And they should also notice especially how McCabe and Comey-- not perfect men by any means-- have been treated terribly by Trump and the GOP after spending their adult lives in federal service.

GOP Tom Coleman: The Case for Trump Treason

https://www.thedailybeast.com/its-not-a-liberal-fantasy-to-ask-if-trump-committed-treason

Tom Coleman, former GOP Congressman and current law professor-
"Under the Constitution an individual commits treason if the nation is at war and the person provides aid and comfort to the enemy. This is an impeachable offense, committed by word or deed. It's one that individuals need to start grappling with seriously because it is not some far-fetched liberal fantasy to conclude that Donald Trump may have committed treason."

"John Barron"-- "I'm, I mean Mr. Trump, is really rich!"

Jonathan Greenberg, on reporting for the Forbes 400 (of richest Americans): “In May 1984, an official from the Trump Organization called to tell me how rich Donald J. Trump was."

It was "John Barron." (BTW, what sort of man names his son after his sock puppet?)

Greenberg has tapes (imagine! from 1984!) including one of Roy Cohn. "Trust me!"

Great stuff.
Really, who could possibly vote for this guy? I know, I know, the Trumpettes studiously refuse to read these articles, and when they see/hear the Access Hollywood tape they loyally say, "That doesn't sound like him," even though a moment later someone who LOOKS a whole lot like him walks out of the RV still jabbering in the same voice.
But really. How long can they just ignore all these reports, going back decades?

Another felon in Trumpland-- Trump Official Who Once Went to Prison for Cutting Exs Brake Lines

Trump Official Who Once Went to Prison for Cutting Ex’s Brake Lines Thinks Parkland May Be an FBI/Pedophile Conspiracy
Kevin Sabo, a former Republican Party official and Interior Department civil servant who was appointed to a political role in the department (he’s the acting chief of congressional and legislative affairs for the Bureau of Reclamation)

In 1999, he was convicted in Virginia of attempting to injure his ex-girlfriend by cutting the brake lines on her car with a pair of wire cutters. (The sabotage was successful, but the woman managed to crash the vehicle into a fence without hurting herself or anyone else.)

And he thinks the Parkland kids are an FBI conspiracy.

Seriously, where do they find these people? You would have to look far and wide among resumes to find some guy who cut his girlfriend's brakelines, but they found him!

Speculate: What is Stormy going to reveal about Trump's ... uh, proclivities?

Josh Marshall has been speculating that Stormy will reveal that Trump likes to be, uh, dominated (I think that's what he meant). Does that mean "spanked" or does that mean "dildoed?"

What do you think she's going to reveal about his attributes and predilections?

(Tighty-whiteys, I think she's already mentioned that.)

Barebacking-- refused to use a condom. (the Playboy bunny mentioned that too.)

Reference to Ivanka (ick).

What else? Shape/size of male member?


As silly as this is, we know it's something that could actually have an effect on the base that has ignored everything else.

"Trump? You mean the one in the leather diaper?"

What do you predict?
