  • Jeanine Pirro At Mar-A-Lago: It ‘Sure Ain’t No Shithole’
    by News Hound Ellen on January 21, 2018 at 7:00 pm

    Jeanine Pirro opened her speech at Mar-a-Lago this week with a joke suggesting that Trump supporters are better than the black immigrants Donald Trump smeared in his infamous “shithole countries” comments. As The Washington Post reported, Pirro was the keynote speaker at an event this week celebrating Trump’s presidency at his resort: “Welcome to Mar-a-Lago!” Fox News host Jeanine Pirro said as she took the stage. “A magnificent place . . . ” She was smiling. That was a setup. Here was the joke: “It sure ain’t no shithole!” Pirro said. The Donald J. Trump Grand Ballroom erupted. Despite the hideous insinuations and the fact that membership requires a $200,000 initiation fee (which Trump doubled from $100,000 after he won the 2016 election) plus annual dues of $14,000, Pirro laughably made Trump out as a regular guy.read mor […]

  • WATCH As Mitch McConnell Objects To Funding Our Troops
    by Scarce on January 21, 2018 at 6:51 pm

    When Democrats were in charge this sort of blatant politicization didn't occur, and accommodations were made to ensure military pay. Not so with the feckless Republicans. This video has been viewed more than a million times on Twitter, but is unlikely to ever be shown on Fox News. Of course. Source: Oliver Willis Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) would not allow military pay to be left unmolested by the Republican Party’s decision to shut down the federal government. Once again, Donald Trump and congressional Republicans have made the military suffer as a result of their political gamesmanship. The move, occurring at night as the Senate debated the shutdown, is a change from 2013, when the Obama administration ensured that military pay would not be disrupted by a shutdown. Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) introduced a resolution that would have secured pay for service members, noting that Trump has been trying to divide the country by invoking the military and putting […]

  • Conservative Columnist: Republicans Getting 'Free Ride' From The Press On Trump's Race Baiting
    by Heather on January 21, 2018 at 6:02 pm

    The Trump administration has been in full race baiting mode ever since the government shutdown on Friday night, and using their base's fear of black and brown people to whip them into a frenzy in an attempt to paint Democrats as the party that wants to allow “illegals” to swarm into the country to rape and pillage from all those hard working “real” 'Murkins that they pretend to represent. As we already discussed here, they changed the White House comments line voicemail to a recording blaming Democrats for the government shutdown and accusing them of holding our troops and national security hostage over immigration policy. The Trump campaign got in on the act with a new ad which calls Democrats “complicit” in murders by undocumented immigrants: The Trump campaign on Saturday released a new campaign ad calling congressional Democrats “complicit” in all murders committed by undocumented immigrants. The spot seems unlikely to ease tensions […]

  • Wallace Nails Mulvaney For Hypocrisy On Shutdown: 'You Supported Holding The Government Hostage'
    by David on January 21, 2018 at 6:00 pm

    Fox News host Chris Wallace suggested on Sunday that the White House was guilty of hypocrisy because officials who had supported a 2013 shutdown of President Barack Obama's government now opposed a shutdown of Donald Trump's government. During an interview with White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, Wallace noted that Trump had said that President Barack Obama deserved blame for the 2013 shutdown even though Republicans initiated it to protest Obamacare funding. "If President Obama was responsible then... isn't President Trump responsible now?" Wallace asked. Mulvaney insisted that the "two presidents have acted" very differently during the shutdown. "I will look you in the eye and tell you President Obama wanted that shutdown and he wanted to weaponize it," Mulvaney insisted. "This president has worked really hard to prevent the shutdown." "He didn't have a bipartisan meeting with congressional leaders yesterday," Wallace pointed out. "Does he have one on the schedule today?" […]

  • Trump Demands Republicans Trigger 'Nuclear Option' Over Government Shutdown
    by John Amato on January 21, 2018 at 5:48 pm

    Since Trump destroyed a bipartisan deal on funding the government last week which has caused a shutdown, he's begging Republicans to trigger the "nuclear option" to keep the Democratic minority from filibustering. I know, I know, my first inclination when I heard the word "nuclear' was to believe he was talking about North Korea. Trump tweeted this today. Great to see how hard Republicans are fighting for our Military and Safety at the Border. The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked. If stalemate continues, Republicans should go to 51% (Nuclear Option) and vote on real, long term budget, no C.R.’s! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 21, 2018 In the Senate, 60 votes are needed to pass any legislation, but if one party in control were to push the detonation button and go nuclear, that would change the requirements to a simple majority of 51 votes. And destroy any type of bipartisanship in Congress forever. […]

  • Chuck Todd Shoots Down White House Official Claiming Racist Trump Campaign Ad Is From 'Outside Group'
    by David on January 21, 2018 at 5:41 pm

    "You know that ad was created by an outside group... it's not done from people working inside the White House," @Marcshort45 says on an ad attacking Democrats which was paid for by Donald J. Trump for President. #MTP pic.twitter.com/tZgLc3NuTG — Meet the Press (@MeetThePress) January 21, 2018 White House Legislative Affairs Director Marc Short tried to distance the White House from an advertisement being run by the Trump campaign alleging that Democrats are "complicit" in murders committed by undocumented immigrants. During an interview on Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd asked Short how running an ad blaming Democrats for murders is "helping a negotiation today" to reopen the government. Since the ad was created by the Trump campaign, it ends with President Trump saying that he "supports this message" as is required by law. "You're calling Democrats accomplices to potential murders," Todd said. "You know that ad was produced by an outside group," Short replied.read mor […]

  • White House Comments Line Voicemail Blames Democrats For Holding Government Funding 'Hostage'
    by Heather on January 21, 2018 at 5:00 pm

    If you thought they weren't capable of being any nastier and more partisan than they are already, you'd be wrong. Here's what callers were treated to when they called the White House comments line this weekend: It seems President Donald Trump’s administration is going all out in pinning the blame for the government shutdown on Democrats. Even the White House comments line is getting in on the public relations strategy, explaining to anyone who calls 202-456-1111 why there is no one there to take their call:read mor […]

  • Paul Ryan: Trump Race-baiting Ad Linking Democrats To Murders Is 'Not Necessarily Productive'
    by David on January 21, 2018 at 4:55 pm

    House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) said on Sunday that a Trump campaign advertisement which blames Democrats for murders committed by undocumented immigrants is "not necessarily productive" in ending the government shutdown. While interviewing Ryan on Sunday, Face the Nation host John Dickerson pointed out that the Trump campaign began running the ad after Republicans were unable to pass a short-term funding resolution to keep the government open. The commercial calls on Democrats to fund the president's border wall and accuses them of being "complicit in all murders" committed by undocumented immigrants. "Are Democrats complicit?" Dickerson asked Ryan. "Well, they're certainly not helping us keep the government open," Ryan replied glibly. "They're certainly not helping us on a solution to immigration. When you shut down the government and stop negotiating on immigration reform, they are complicit with not getting things done." "But are they complicit in murders?" Dickerson pressed. "I'm […]

  • Our Bleeding Hearts Might Have Saved Us
    by Ramona Grigg on January 21, 2018 at 3:00 pm

    Today marks the anniversary of the Dread Fiend Trump's official entry into politics, not as dog catcher, not even as city clerk, but as President of these United States. A year has passed and as much as we've spit and hollered, as often as we've watched the evidence of corruption pile up, Donald Trump is still president. He is every bit as bad at the job as we imagined. You might even say he's far worse. But on the bright side, North Korea hasn't nuked us yet, the Grand Canyon hasn't been filled in and paved over, and neither ermine robes nor jeweled crowns have replaced Polo shirts and MAGA caps. Court jesters are filling the Capital, and kowtowing is back in vogue, but so far no guillotines have appeared in any town squares. Nevertheless, good people are being banished from the realm by the thousands--families torn apart, falsely accused of unworthiness--and countries that were once our friends now look on us with pity and/or disgust. Many of them can't stop laughing. We're in a […]
