The Best People

June 16, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Remember how Trump said he would hire the best people? Well, he never actually said best for who.

Lynne Patton has been appointed to oversee the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Region II, which includes New York and New Jersey, where she’ll oversee distribution of billions of taxpayer dollars.

Who is Lynne Patton?  Honey, she’s a party planner for the Trump family who even oversaw Eric Trump’s wedding.

“Responsible for organizing, executing and assisting with upscale events and celebrity golf tournaments,” her LinkedIn profile says. “Handle celebrity talent acquisition for various marketing projects, philanthropic events and golf tournaments.”

Region II oversees payments of HUD funds to properties owned by . . . are you ready for this? Trump and Kushner.

I got the best frauds. And the best liars too.

Thanks to Carl and Alfredo over at the Dairy Queen for the heads up.

In case you missed it, here is the Mar-a-Lago war room —

 

You’ll note that they are all sitting on the standard issue war room delicate gold rattan chairs.

If some of these names are not familiar to you, here’s a handy guide.

 

Seriously, y’all, what the hell is that Steve Miller guy doing in there?  I mean, except to make Bannon look sane.

I agree with El Jefe below.  This whole bombing thing was a fake reality show.

And in Irony of the Hour, Sean Hannity on September 3rd, 2013.

 

UPDATE:  Well, here ya go.

 

Raytheon stock surged Friday morning, after 59 of the company’s Tomahawk missiles were used to strike Syria in Donald Trump’s first major military operation as President.

The shares of other missile and weapons manufacturers, including Boeing(BA, +0.83%), Lockheed Martin(LMT, +1.17%), Northrop Grumman(NOC, +0.90%)and General Dynamics(GD, +0.93%), each rose as much as 1%, collectively gaining nearly $5 billion in market value as soon as they began trading, even as the broader market fell.

Goes a long way explaining everything, doesn’t it?

Takeover at WH Complete

Yesterday, just moments after ExxonMobil announced a $20 billion spending program in the Gulf of Mexico, the White House released a statement that copied the company’s press release virtually word for word.  It seems that Tillerson’s former company has accomplished taking over the White House, even to the point of issuing its press statements.

 

 

Really? That’s It? That’s the Best You Can Do?

Traditionally, presidents pose with their spouses and children for Christmas photos.  Here are a few examples:

bush-xmas

obamaxmas

clinton-xmas

Then there is Cheeto Jesus:

trump-christmas

That’s right.  Because nothing says Merry Christmas like a raised fist.  You know what happened – CJ realized he hadn’t tweeted a holiday greeting yesterday and ordered one of his minions to find a Christmas photo of himself.  Since his handlers hadn’t had a Christmas photo taken, they just grabbed the first one they found.  It looks like this was taken at one of his Gloat Tour rallies and it’s the closest he could get to an actual Christmas photo.

I continue to ponder one word descriptors of this guy, and the only one that comes to mind is vulgar.

Two Pigs in a Poke

New Appointments to Lead White House Staff

New Appointments to Lead White House Staff

Yesterday, Cheeto Jesus appointed his two top strategists for the coming January 20th Apocalypse.  What was striking about these appointments was not only their similarity – they’re both well known pigs; but also their differences – outside pig versus inside pig.  The outside pig is Steve Bannon, CEO of that den of serial liars called Breitbart “News”; the inside pig is RNC chairman and serial loudmouth, Reince Priebus.  Cheeto Jesus couldn’t have chosen a worse pair to run the White House except for maybe someone like Hannibal Lector or Freddy Krueger.  The choice of these two characters is shocking, but not surprising.
