More babbling from the babyman

The red state menace said this:

The president also said he would have run into the South Florida high school where 17 students and faculty members were killed in a mass shooting, even if he was not armed, and he criticized law enforcement officials who were at the scene of the school shooting but did nothing to try to stop it. He called their performances “frankly disgusting.”

“You don’t know until you test it, but I think, I really believe I would have run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon,” the president said.

Let’s test it. Here he is in March of 2016 during the campaign:

And here he is in November 2016.

The guy puts people between himself and danger faster than Martin Sheen did at the end of “The Dead Zone.”

Is there any point in calling bullshit on what he says, when everything he says is bullshit?

The NRA terrorist group pays its prostitutes well in Florida

The Florida legislature was asked to vote yesterday to have a debate on banning assault weapons. Not a vote on banning the weapons, mind you, but a vote to have a debate on a ban. Here’s how it went down:

The legislative breakdown in Florida is 76 Republicans, 40 Democrats and three vacant seats. Every “nay” vote, meaning every vote to not even discuss the matter, was a Republican vote.

And they did it in front of students who attend Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., the site of the second-deadliest shooting at a U.S. public school.

The way to end the mass slaughter of children in schools is to vote every Republican out of office. In every state. In every county. In every city. In every town. In every village. We already know Republicans are NRA whores. The least they could do is not flaunt it in front of civilized people.

This is your reminder

From economist Brad Delong, who understands numbers;

Note to Self: This is your reminder:

  • 178.4 180.8 million people are represented by the 48 49 senators who caucus with the Democrats.
  • 144.1 141.7 million people are represented by the 52 51 senators who caucus with the Republicans.
  • 65.9 million people voted for Hillary Rodham Clinton and Tim Kaine to be their president and vice president
  • 63.0 million people voted for Donald Trump and Mike Pence to be their president and vice president.

Numbers don’t lie. Republicans do.

White House crime stories

Now, watch them turn against each other:

A former top aide to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign will plead guilty to fraud-related charges within days — and has made clear to prosecutors that he would testify against Paul Manafort, the lawyer-lobbyist who once managed the campaign.

The change of heart by Trump’s former deputy campaign manager Richard Gates, who had pleaded not guilty after being indicted in October on charges similar to Manafort’s, was described in interviews by people familiar with the case.
