Girls! Girls! Girls!

Donald Trump ventured into the world of sugar and spice and all things nice yesterday and was seemingly shocked that women are actually allowed to be educated and read books and stuff.

Around we’ve had leaders like Susan B. Anthony. Have you heard of Susan B. Anthony? I’m shocked that you’ve heard of her — who dreamed of a much more fair and equal future and an America where women themselves as she said helped to make laws and elect the lawmakers, and that’s what’s happening more and more.”

And he wasn’t been sardonic.  He’s shocked that someone snitched to us hooter toters that Susan B Anthony is like a real person.

And there was this:

“My cabinet is full of really incredible women leaders,” Trump told the room.

 

Yep.  There ya go – four out of twenty are female, which is kinda full on the Less Than Half Empty scale.  Hell, that’s just barely more women than he has married.

He has the whitest male staff since Ronald Reagan and that’s the truth.  That’s because Vladimir doesn’t know many women.

 

Filling the Swamp

Well, well, well, Trump’s choice for Director of Health and Human Services seems to be one of the bigger alligators in the swamp.  And, damn, that animal is plenty hungry.

Price, as a congressman, purchases shares in a company that makes stuff of hip replacement operations, Zimmer Biomet.

Less than a week after the transaction, the Georgia Republican congressman introduced the HIP Act, legislation that would have delayed until 2018 a Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services regulation that industry analysts warned would significantly hurt Zimmer Biomet financially once fully implemented.

Not only that but …

The Wall Street Journal reported last month that he traded roughly $300,000 in shares over the past four years in health companies while pursuing legislation that could impact them.

And then because alligators have really big appetites, Price needed more money so he sent a letter to CMS asking for a delay for the implementation of the new policy. And then …

Two days after the letter, Zimmer Biomet’s PAC cut Price’s reelection committee a check worth $1,000, according to campaign finance filings.

Three months after he introduced the bill, the company’s PAC cut Price’s campaign committee another $1,000 check, according to records.

Bless Trump’s heart, he had to look really hard to find a Republican congressvarmint with that big an appetite for self-enrichment.

His hearing starts Wednesday and if the Democrats don’t walk out of there with a new pair of alligator boots, I’ll be very disappointed.

Price wants to reform Medicare, y’all.  Under his plan, from now on, you don’t get health care until you send Price $1,000.  In return, he’ll send you a gift card for $100 to pay for your medical expenses.

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.
