Turning a Page…

Sean Hannity: Presidential Proctologist! is all riled up. His team has spent all day combing through the FBI texts that Il Douché called “BOMBSHELLS!” And no doubt, to Il Douché, they probably were; to everyone else, they’re familiar sentiments. “This can’t be happening” Peter Strozk wrote election night, followed later by “I’m so depressed” once the results were in. But, I guess if not applauding Il Douché is treasonous, these texts are capital crimes.

But: a couple of questions remain. Sean must think that judges are as dumb as his fan base, and when presented with a file filled with opposition research on Tr**p, and are told the information was gathered at the behest of qb the DNC or Clinton campaign was behind it.

And the complaint that Christopher Steele, the too-perfectly named agent behind the “dirty dossier,” got information about Tr**p’s dealing with the Russian government from—you better sit down—members of said Russian government makes no sense at all. Who are you supposed to get intel on the Russian gov’t from? Carter Page? (And, when you get down to it, this whole FISA abuse story ends up being about protecting the rights of a suspected Russian agent, which isn’t bad news for Carter Page, but not a good look for the military-obeisant White House.)

And if two people exchanging messages containing statements shared by more than half the county is the best they could come up with…(there’s also the shocking disclosure that Obama was very interested in hearing how the investigation is going—either Hillary’s emails, or Russian hacking of our election. They’re both proof of the left’s politization of law enforcement. This from a man who has no problem with Il Douché wanting to know if an assistant Attorney General is on his “team.” I guess that’s simply part of the “extreme vetting” all potential hires are subjected to…

Take now-former Staff Secretary Rob Porter, a man whose history of spousal abuse was known for weeks by the White House, but continued to have access to highly classified documents, even though he never had clearance. (Again, not a good look for an administration that continues to call for criminal prosecution of Hillary over an email server that might have exposed classified documents.)

And, hey! Look who helped write the release announcing Porter’s defenestration? Why, it’s Hope Hicks, Porter’s current paramour (which does not take her out of the Michael Wolff “Who is Tr**p shtupping” sweepstakes! We’re assuming his belief that there’s “nothing sweeter” than sleeping with another man’s wife” extends to the girlfriends of his staff.

On Sutherland Springs Texas

I wrote an editorial on the most recent mass shooting—this time in Sutherland Springs Texas, with more than 20 dead, including infants—for Obitmagazine.com.

Sean Hannity: Presidential Proctologist! Ignoring the hand that groped you edition

Sean Hannity: Presidential Proctologist is livid—livid, I tells ya—that liberals are letting Harvey Weinstein off the hook. According to Sean, losing his job, his wife, and his standing in polite society is proof that the Left not only doesn’t care but endorses sexual predation.

On the other hand, Donald Trump bragging (to Billy Bush, of all people) about how, because of his stardom, he can get away with grabbing ladies by their lady parts, and the dozen women who claimed “The Apprentice” host engaged in unwanted sexual behavior…not a problem.

And after pointing an accusatory finger at every Democrat who ever stood on a stage with Weinstein, (or applauded when Roman Polanski won his Oscar)—but didn’t Sean have multiple sexual abuser Bill O’Reilly on his show, what…two weeks ago? And how long did Sean keep quiet while Roger Ailes attempted to grope every blonde on Fox News?

The hypocrisy is breathtaking …


The Only Thing That Can Stop A Bad Guy On Two Feet…

OK, Dana Loesch and the NRA. I’m quite willing to accept your (moronic) contention that feet are as must a threat as guns.

In return, I ask that we limit the number of guns each Second Amendment-loving American can own to exactly equal to the number of feet they possess. By agreeing to this (modest) proposal, I think all Americans will feel safer, knowing they are protected from stampedes. Especially of the gunman-related variety.


Donald Trump, Empath of Genius

“Every death is a horror, but if you look at a real catastrophe like Katrina, and you look at the tremendous hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people that died, and you look at what happened here and what is your death count? Sixteen people, versus in the thousands…You can be very proud. Sixteen versus literally thousands of people.”—Donald Trump, comforting the people of Puerto Rico, October 3, 2017

“I will tell you that, in my conversations with the President and in my experience with the president — that his passion and his love for the American people and concern about their welfare is unending. And what he has seen in this is what all of us have seen when you watch the television and you see the situation — the tragic situation that many individuals are in. And his heart goes out to them, as does everybody’s heart.”—Then-Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price, quoted in the Washington Post, August 30, 2017

“(F)or the next four years at least, we have a president who is anything but empathetic. We call this a bad thing and even hold protests to claim Trump’s lack of empathy is terrible for the nation. But is it?—Suzanne Venker, Washington Examiner, January 27, 2017

Screen Shot 2017-08-23 at 2.02.28 PM

The past few weeks have certainly put Ms. Venker’s question to the test. The President has thanked battered Texans for their turnout when he visited the state after Hurricane Harvey, tweeted that ungrateful Puerto Ricans wanted everything done for them, and today, both congratulated/dissed the U.S. Territory for not dying in the numbers racked up by Hurricane Katrina in 2006. Which makes you wonder, what kind of speeches can we expect if we do if, for at least the next four years, have a president who is lacking in empathy….

You never want to hear that someone died from any disease, but you didn’t have anywhere near as may deaths as a real health crisis like the Smallpox Epidemic of 1918 Hundreds of thousands of people—worldwide! hundreds of thousands—were killed. That was some bad hombre of a virus! But you should be proud, very proud, that, in 1976, only 34 people died of Legionnaire’s Disease. That’s 34, against thousands.—speaking at a Philadelphia American Legion Convention

 Nine lives….nine. Like a cat. And every one a tragedy. But you should be proud that your casualties were less than a real mass killer like Charles Whitman in Austin.—At a rally in Charleston, South Carolina

Yes, your beautiful city lost many man thousands of people when Harry Truman—who was, and not many people know this, he was a Democrat—dropped the second A-Bomb here. And you should be proud. But you didn’t have as much destruction like that real atomic bomb blast in Hiroshima—speaking at a memorial service in Nagasaki, Japan

The plane crash that took Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper (the biggest! Thank you…Thank you) and that young Mexican singer was a tragedy, but not like that real plane crash that nearly ended the career of Lynyrd Skynyrd.—dedicating the Buddy Holly Memorial.

 

 


Trump Agonistes

Remember when the GOP complained that liberals were softies, because they all expect to get participation trophies?

But what to make of Il Douché, pouting that the press isn’t reporting about the good things happening a in Puerto Rico (somehow not understanding that it’s taken over a week for any kind of movement), they’re also dismissing how much he helped Luther Strange (or, as he is now referred to, “the candidate I endorsed,” his name apparently stricken from all records, the supportive tweets now consigned to the memory hole…)! q


Donald Trump, Patsy

Here’s a headline from Breitbart. It looks like they’re going to explain away Il Douché’s deal-making apostasy in the much the same way they did Reagan’s: Those wily Democrats fooled him!

They’ll tell you that Reagan was a great president, a master tactician and communicator, in full control of his faculties…except when the Democrats tricked him into that amnesty deal…and made him raise taxes….and, oh yeah, forced him to make a deal with Iran to fund the contras which he totally didn’t want to do but had to…because the Democrats passed a law making funding the Contras illegal.
The difference is that in Reagan’s case, they had the grace and good manners to wait a few years before revising history; today, they’re doing it on the fly, adapting their  excuses as the President treats policy decisions like Faye Dunaway in Chinatown: “They’re the Dreamers/They’re Illegal….”They’re the Dreamers/They’re Illegal….”
