Trump Dum Dum

September 19, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself

I admit it.  I could not watch all 41 minutes of the Trump speech to the UN.

Mainly, I couldn’t follow it.

First, when the world came together to settle the Iran nuclear deal, Trump says that was a huge mistake.  Then in the next breath, he demands the world come together against North Korea.  See?  that doesn’t make sense.

And Rocket Man? Kim Jong Un isn’t a man; he’s a little boy.  And the lyrics to that song are very sympathetic, but then of course, Trump wouldn’t understand sympathetic.  And why would you poke a stick at Kim? And why would you threaten to destroy North Korea?

If you watched the whole thing, you are a better person than I am.

Hostile Work Environment

So leaks from the White House say that paranoia has been added to the crazy stew.

“The uncertainty has grown to the point that White House officials privately express fear that colleagues may be wearing a wire to surreptitiously record conversations for Mr. Mueller.”

The other fun game is trying to remember everything you ever said to Paul Manafort in a phone conversation ever in your whole damn life.

There’s something bothering me.  I have heard on the teevee that we should all feel sorry for the low level people in the White House who now have to go out and hire lawyers. Uh, not this gal.  They chose to work in the White House, even though they knew the president was crazy, liable to sexually assault them, racist, and a damn pig. If you’re willing to trade your soul for “White House” on your resume, you need more than a lawyer. You need a mental health professional.  And maybe a preacher.

I do not feel sorry for any of them.


I Dunno, Y’all

I think it looks a little suspicious that Donald Trump, Jr and The Fabulous Miss Kellyanne Conway have refused Secret Service protection ’round about the same time.



Hot Times in the Old Town Tonight!

CNN says Paul Manafort was wiretapped before and after the election with a FISA warrant.

And the New York Times says Manafort has been notified that he will be indicted.

Back to my popcorn ….


He Keeps Turning Up Like a Bad Penny

Texas Governor Greg Abbott is naming new senior advisers.  The Texas Tribune did a story about it and somehow neglected to mention that one of new hires, John Colyandro, plead guilty to accepting illegal political contributions.

Yeah, this is the same John Colyandro of Tom DeLay fame, who was indicted for accepting illegal corporate donations and for illegally laundering $190,000 in corporate funds through the Republican National State Elections Committee; money that later wound up in the hands of Texas Republican candidates.  He was also indicted on 13 counts of unlawful acceptance of a corporate political contribution.

He plead guilty to the lesser charge of accepting illegal campaign contributions.  He got 2 years probation on two Class A misdemeanors and an $8,000 fine.


Rick Perry’s Own Personal Swamp Doesn’t Have a Drain Plug

The guy responsible for the “new” Rick Perry with Clark Kent glasses and fewer mind-altering drugs, goes by the name of Jeff Miller.  Miller was Perry’s political consultant on Perry Perry for President 2.0.

When Perry was named the head the Energy Department, everybody assumed that Miller would be his Chief of Staff.  That did not happen.

Instead, Miller became a lobbyist making $240,000 in six months by lobbying … you guessed it, Rick Perry at the Energy Department.  Not bad for a guy who lists his place of business as a post office box in Buda, Texas, and a website that isn’t.

So, it appears that the swamp is not drawing.  It’s festering.

Thanks to SGray for the heads up.
