GOP ponies lead a spectacular witch hunt

For those of us still in the real world, gathering information to determine if Spanky and his gang of enablers are Putin’s ponies bent on undermining the United States and the rest of the Western world is an investigation. Attacking a member of the team who is conducting the investigation is a witch hunt.

The congressional GOP is running with the ponies.

Let’s make sure the right terms are applied to the right circumstances.

Chuck Todd is stupid

How is it possible for someone who supposedly understands Washington politics  to tweet this?

The Kentucky turtle doesn’t give a fuck about defending this. He’s a lying racist bastard who stole a Supreme Court nomination because he didn’t want the black guy to have it. The tweet was never serious in the first place.

Mitch McConnell laughs at Chuck Todd’s idiocy.

Hitting your head with a hammer offers better insight than the gullible goatee. Because his tweet should have been this:

 

Spanky offers thoughts and prayers

Hit rewind. Press play:

A man with a vendetta against an Annapolis newspaper fired a shotgun through the newsroom’s glass doors and at its employees, killing five and injuring two others Thursday in a targeted shooting, according to police.

The attack appears to be the deadliest involving journalists in the United States in decades.

Local police said the Capital Gazette was targeted in the Maryland incident that prompted heightened security in newsrooms around the country.

A bulletin emailed to Maryland law enforcement officials identified the shooting suspect as Jarrod Ramos, 38. Police were searching an apartment in Laurel, Md., late Tuesday that is tied to Ramos.

Ramos in 2015 lost a defamation case he brought against the paper over a 2011 column he contended defamed him. The column provided an account of Ramos’s guilty plea to criminal harassment of a woman over social media.

And to accompany the generic cartoon, the generic response:

Which means wait a couple of weeks and rerun the whole thing again in a different city with a different body count.

Because Spanky and his gang and the entire GOP are NRA whores. As long as people keep electing them, nuts with guns are going to kill.

Oh, and remember the korrupt krimson klansman did this a couple of days ago:

 

Moral responses to feckless runts

A few recent observations on the proper treatment of followers and enablers of Spanky and his gang:

First from Politico:

One beleaguered 31-year-old female administration official described at length her “very, very frequent” scraps with her matches on dating apps. “You do the small talk thing, and you have a very good conversation, and then they might say, ‘You didn’t vote for Trump, right?’” she says. “As soon as I say, ‘Of course I did,’ it just devolves into all-caps ‘HOW COULD YOU BE SUCH A RACIST AND A BIGOT?’ And ‘You’re going to take away your own birth control.’” In one recent star-crossed exchange, the official told a match she worked for the federal government. When he pushed, she revealed she was in the administration. He asked her, “Do you rip babies from their mothers and then send them to Mexico?”

Evasive answers will get you only so far, though, since many dating apps provide enough information for inquisitive users to sleuth out their matches’ identities. “I literally got the other day, ‘Thanks but no thanks. Just Googled you and it said you were a mouthpiece for the Trump administration. Go fuck yourself,’” says the official. It’s all enough to drive her and some of her colleagues away from at least some of the apps. “I’m no longer on Bumble,” she says.

Now from CNN:

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said she was kicked out of a Virginia restaurant by its owner because she works for President Donald Trump.

“Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left,” Sanders posted on Twitter Saturday.

“Her actions say far more about her than about me,” Sanders said. “I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.”
When reached for comment by CNN, Sanders referred to the tweet she posted.

The owner Stephanie Wilkinson told The Washington Post in an interview Saturday that she “would have done the same thing again.”

Then there’s this:

I find these perfectly acceptable responses when dealing with promoters of fascism, but, of course, some misguided simpleton on the left comes up with this wringing of hands:

Seriously? This response? When the Supreme Court says it’s fine to not make a wedding cake for gay people because of your moral convictions, why is it wrong to tell a baby snatching enabler to take a hike?

This is why the moralists on the left lose to the monsters on the right.

Has he no decency? Nope.

Spanky and his supporting cast of Nazis from the “Schindler’s List” “take the babies from their mothers” scene have (temporarily) backed down from their GOP-backed, pussygrabber-encouraged kids in cages policy.

President Trump abruptly reversed course Wednesday, signing an executive order ending family separations at the U.S.-Mexico border after a public uproar over the impact of his administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy.

The plan would keep families together in federal custody while awaiting prosecution for illegal border crossings, potentially violating a 1997 court settlement limiting the duration of child detentions.

“So we’re going to have strong, very strong borders, but we’re going to keep the families together,” Trump said as he signed the order in the Oval Office. “I didn’t like the sight or the feeling of families being separated.”

Trump had repeatedly defended his immigration crackdown, including forcibly separating migrant children from their parents after they crossed the border. But images of young children in tears, housed in metal cages, set off an international outcry.

Partly because of reactions like this:

Of course, the Republican toadies in Congress who’ve been going in front or reporters un support if this atrocity find themselves dining on shit sandwiches again because they never stand up to this national disgrace and his grifting spawn. Meanwhile, the krimson koiffed kaiser is headed of to another rally of dolts who are going to laugh and cheer because their autocrat has pissed of the Mexicans and liberals.

We keep saying the pumpkin-brained fascist has hit a new low, but we have two more years of this crap to get through. He will reach new depths. That, you can count on.
