Is There a Stopping Point on The Crazy Train?

Somebody break his finger.

President Donald Trump suggested in a tweet this morning that frequent critic Joe Scarborough, the host of the MSNBC’s Morning Joe, killed his intern in 2001.

An autopsy found that the intern had a heart condition.  She fell and hit her head on the desk.

That doesn’t matter to Trump.


Newsweek reports …

It’s not the first time Trump has drawn attention to a conspiracy theory via social media or participated in creating one. His latest, according to The New York Times, is his suggestion to advisers that the Access Hollywood tapes in which he made vulgar sexual comments about women were fake. He famously asked for President Barack Obama to present his birth certificate and prove he was American-born, but backtracked on that claim in 2016. Lately, according to the Times, Trump has been telling advisers he thinks Obama’s birth certificate is a fake.

Well, at least he’s narrowing his hate tweets.  Instead of pissing off a whole foreign country, religion, and people of good faith, he’s got it down to teevee people.

Thanks to Kyle for the heads up.

Well, He’ll Fit Right In

In another reality a person who caused the death of 29 men would not be considered a serious candidate.  But that ain’t the reality we’re in.

Former Massey Energy chief executive officer Don Blankenship (R) plans to run for U.S. Senate seat held by Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), WCHS reports.

Blankenship served a one-year sentence in prison for “conspiring to willfully violate mine safety standards.”

Look, I’m no fan of Joe Manchin, but Massey spent a year in a California prison after a jury convicted him of the explosion in 2010. He appealed and lost that, too.

He is currently prohibited from leaving Nevada until May 2018. He has a house in Nevada and is under federal supervision as a condition of his conviction.

Won’t that make campaigning in West Virginia kinda hard?

On the upside, he won’t be the worst guy in the Senate.


Holy Crap: Trump Wants a Religious War

Okay y’all, Trump took to Twitter this morning and pissed off England, Muslims, the entire song “Let There Be Peace On Earth,” and little baby Jesus in a manger.

President Trump on Wednesday shared three inflammatory anti-Muslim videos on Twitter posted by a far-right British activist, drawing backlash from across Britain including a sharp rebuke from the British prime minister’s office.

The videos — whose authenticity could not be independently verified — were first shared by Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of Britain First, which bills itself as a political party but has been widely condemned as an extremist group that targets mosques and Muslims.

It looks like Trump has met his match in the Misleading department. Jayda Fransen was convicted of “religiously aggravated harassment” after he abused a woman wearing a hijab.

Now here’s the part that will make the little hairs on the back of your neck stand to attention and get all prickly.

Sarah Huckybooboo Sanders said Trump was only trying to promote strong borders and …

“Whether it’s a real video, the threat is real and that is what the president is talking about,” Sanders told reporters.

No, goofy, the threat is not real. If it was real, you wouldn’t have to use fake videos.

I am shaking so hard that I could thread a sewing machine while it’s running.

Look, let me make this simple.  When I die I want to be either real old, real sick, or doing something worth dying for.  I do not want “Trump Tweet” anywhere in my obituary. He’s making that real hard for me.


This is Kinda Expected

Yesterday, when Trump announced North Korea had launched a missile, there was a piece of paper n front of him with something written bigly in marker pen.


So your friends and mine over at the Daily Mail enlarged it and, I imagine there will be all sorts of jokes about what was written on there.  However, what was written on there is better than any joke.


The piece of paper was spotted on the table in front of Trump as he addressed reporters in the Roosevelt Room of the White House a few hours after the missile streaked across Korean and Japanese skies.


Not straying far from his notes, Trump then told reporters: ‘A missile was launched a little while ago from North Korea. I will only tell you that we will take care of it. It is a situation that we will handle.’

I do not know what “We will take care of it” means, but it scares the crap outta me.

Maybe he can be taught Sarah Palin’s trick to write it on his hand.

Thanks to Epp for the heads up.

Lookie Here!

Our own BarbinDC was at the Progressive Change Campaign Rally in DeeCee today.  That’s her and her hat standing behind Elizabeth Warren!  Barb is carrying a Pantsuit Nation bag.


Barb ain’t going down without a fight!  Please thank her for taking a stand.

Also, thanks to Elizabeth Warren.


Chuck and Nancy

Okay, Sluggo woke up this morning and decided to pick a fight.


Chuck and Nancy ain’t playing that game.

In response, Schumer and Pelosi said that “rather than going to the White House for a show meeting that won’t result in an agreement,” they’ve asked to meet alone with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.).

“If the president, who already said earlier this year that ‘our country needs a good shutdown,’ isn’t interested in addressing the difficult year-end agenda, we’ll work with those Republicans who are, as we did in April. We look forward to continuing to work in good faith, as we have been for the last month, with our Republican colleagues in Congress to do just that.”

Yeah, Trump, shut down the government during December.  Nobody wanted to see your damn Christmas decorations anyway.

The sticking point is that currently government spending on defense and non-defense is about the same: $549 billion for defense programs and $516 billion for non defense.

The defense hawks running the White House want to boost defense spending to $600 billion, which we wouldn’t need if the damn president would quit needlessly pissing off every other country in the world.

Democrats also want to insure that DACA isn’t ended, and that CHIP remains a top priority.

So Republicans are in the position to hurt children in all possible ways they can.  Merry Christmas, Trump.
