Dude, If I Were President, I Would Certainly Piss Off A Lot Of People, But The Secret Service Would Not Be One Of Them

July 17, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

I dunno, I just dunno, but it seems to me that pissing off the Secret Service might not be a sparkling idea.

Sekulow – got himself some Rick Perry glasses

On Sunday morning, Jay Sekulow, a member of Trump’s legal team which means he’s being paid money for this, lowered his butt into a seat on ABC News and announced to the world that the Trump Junior investigation was over, over, over, because the Secret Service would not have allowed spies into a meeting with Junior.

Idiots like that don’t grow on trees, y’all.  This is a real specially cultivated idiot.

“Donald Trump, Jr. was not a protectee of the USSS in June, 2016. Thus we would not have screened anyone he was meeting with at that time,” Secret Service spokesman Mason Brayman said in a statement to Reuters.

I would also like to add that the Secret Service is there to protect you from people with guns.  They are not there to protect you from yourself.

  1. Dear God.
    Trump can’t even pick a good lawyer.
    We are doomed.
    No wonder why Trump was frantic when he heard that Trump towers might have been bugged.
    We thought it was because of Flynn.
    What about if he was bigly worried about Jr.?

    Suckulow was a staple on the 700 Club with Pat Robertson when Clinton was Potus. He hasn’t gotten any smarter since then. I wonder did he get his law degree from a box of Cracker Jacks?

  3. I respect the Secret Service. The WashPost had an article about their training which contained a phrase that sticks with you. The agents-to-be were told that, in the last resort, “you are the meat shield.” If they see a gun aimed at the president or whomever they’re guarding, and there isn’t time to stop it any other way, their duty is to throw themselves in front of the bullets.

    But no, they were not responsible for stopping this little **** from trying to commit treason. (And it’s not to his credit that he didn’t succeed.)

  4. Besides not pissing off SS, may as well add all of the alphabet soup agencies like CIA, NSA, FBI, etc.

    The agencies are full of people that are loyal-unto-death to the US and the tenets of democracy. And Rump and his congress of political whores, not so much.

  5. He also said that this whole investigation is “very unfair” to Trump Jr., Kushner, and Manafort because, ya know, they were “new to this.”

    On CNN yesterday there was a guy defending the Three Amigos who said the campaign at that time was very disorganized and it was being run “from the top down” since Corey Lewandowski had left. He admitted that Trump Sr. was in charge of everything. Right after he said that, his face blanched in recognition of his blunder and Fredericka Whitfield just smiled, letting the gaffe sink in.

    Ask yourselves this …. perhaps you already have … but I’ve seen no one else raise the question: Why didn’t rump’s private security force, now ensconced in the White House as a parallel neo-fascist, quasi-federal police force, the first of its kind in American history installed at the beck and call of a supposedly American President, prevent rump junior from attending this meeting?

    Don’t they keep tabs on this sort of thing, or are they there merely to make sure the “Full-Of-Shitness” hair doesn’t get mussed.

    After all, they will be there, the thugs, guarding from the ramparts whichever gaudy, overpriced lair rump and his thieving, lying fellow republicans, the latter of whom who will nevertheless be charged rent for attending the siege, run to during the coming impeachment/removal conflagration …. it will be bloody and savagely violent, at His orders … as the lot of them refuse to obey the impeachment orders and the Constitution and cause the legitimate Secret Service, and the U.S. military, those that don’t mutiny in support of rump, to oust this nest of traitorous vipers by force with extreme prejudice.

    Jay Sekulow is a special snowflake sort of st00pid, willfully ignorant. While it is his job to represent the client, and in this particular case respond to the media putting his best spin on the client, he’s placing the lipstick on the wrong end of the pigs. Until he convinces Dipsticks Jr. and Sr. to stop whining and twittering, there is nothing he can say to douse the dumpster fires those two continue to create. Legal principle 101 – give the client a thorough understanding of Miranda – STFU. If Jay cannot do that, he’s receiving fees for services not rendered.

  8. Everyone else on this site is so eloquent and have such great points to make that I think I will stick to a single word. Maybe not yet, when I first heard sekulow say that I though wait a minute… don jr. did not even have Secret Service yet…so the word is… Fool ( starting small)

    U.S. Secret Service rejects suggestion it vetted Trump son’s meeting

    “In an emailed response to questions about Sekulow’s comments, Secret Service spokesman Mason Brayman said the younger Trump was not under Secret Service protection at the time of the meeting, which included Trump’s son and two senior campaign officials.”

    So Jr., Manafort, and Kushner are new to treason?

    What a relief.

    Or perhaps it would be if I believed Sekulow, which, I must concede, I do not.

    I am, surprisingly, glad to know they’re thoroughly incompetent, bumbling amateurs. I shudder to think what damage competent professionals could do.

  11. Other things the Secret Service didn’t allow:

    Dick Cheney never shot his friend in the face while hunting, because the Secret Service would not let birdshot blast in that direction.

    Ronald Reagan never fell asleep in cabinet meetings, because the Secret Service would have poked him awake.

  12. Mr. Sekulow really should stick to his main job, Lying For Jesus. He was better at that.

    TTPT- no offense meant to any ladies here, but I have to say Frederika Whitfield is a fox of the 5th Essence.

    If that makes me tacky and/or sexist I will gladly wear that collar.

    E Plat, he got his law degree from the 700 club honorary university of the air.

  16. Wiki sez Jay Sekulow was born to Jewish parents in the Bronx but converted to whichever form of evangelical extremism that prevails in Atlanta Jawja. He was then educated first at Babtist “college” Mercer U in Atlanta, (BS/JD) then at Pat Robertson’s school in Virginia Beach for a PhD. I rather suspect all of these institutions put more emphasis on the depth of the student’s adherence to evangelical Christianity than to their academic potential or achievement.

    Another reason these home-school universities should be forced closed. As the first generation of either of my families to earn a degree, My degrees were earned by blood sweat and tears at a smallish state university. Diploma mills like Mercer and Regent University insult my degree by comparison and belittle the sacrifices made by my wife and me to complete our degrees.

    This guy creeps me out, even when he’s not talking.

    With those huge glasses and narrow chin, he looks like a Praying Mantis.

  18. Here I go again, just because I’m old and remember these things, like when there was advertising on matchbooks. And the ads included correspondence law schools! Ray, baby, karma has your address.

    Good one Jane and PKM. Reminds of thatbtimeless tome when dumbass dubya, cheney and Colin Powell were captured by Iraqis and sentenced to the firing squad.

    Powell was up first and when the order to fire was about to be given, Powell shouted out tornado. Everyone ducked, Powell jumped the wall and escaped. Cheney was up next. At the moment of truth he shouted hurricane (nim and Powell were so smart) everyone ducked, Cheney jumped the wall and got away.

    Poor dumbass dubya, he of the none too swift department.
    Only natural disaster he could come up with at his moment of truth was…..wait for it…..fire.

    Well, how disappointing! I was quite certain that Brotha Sekulow’s degree came from either Bob Jones or Liberty University. Such fine upstanding bastions of conservative drivel as they are; Seklow prob can’t read the questions on the Cracker Jack box!!

    Good news-sorta. 2 more wingnut senators came out against taxcuts for the wealthy. Lee of Utah and Moran of Kansas. That is four-one more defection than what was needed to derail the bill and make Drumpf awfully unhappy.

    Aggieland Liz: ” Seklow prob can’t read the questions on the Cracker Jack box!!” Good one, but I read a wonderful comment just recently, “he’s so stupid he can’t read the size on his underpants”.
