The guest list at the Hamptons

So, Jared and Ivanka and Kellyanne are partying in the Hamptons with the former owners of the Washington Post, and Democrat Chuck Schumer and “liberal moneybags” George Soros. And when you look at the guest list, it’s full of liberals and conservatives whose main interest is how much money they have.

Which tells me that the only thing the one percent truly believe in is serving each other filet mignon no matter what political party they claim to be a part of.

So if you’re depending on some rich guy to come to your rescue to stop the Babyman from taking away Obamacare from your dying kid or kicking your mom out of the nursing home because she’s reached her Medicaid limits, you better wake up to reality and vote your interest, not theirs.

(From Ben Jacobs at The Guardian because, really, you’re not going to get it from the folks on the TV)

I can’t stress enough that this is not normal

Babyman tweeted this yesterday;

I repeat. Babyman tweeted this yesterday:

This is fucked up.

I used to say “If Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama did anything like this, people would be losing their shit.”

Now I’m saying “If George Bush (the Dumber) or Dick Cheney (the Dark Lord) did anything like this, people would be losing their shit.”

And one other thing.

This is a distraction. The Orange Julius Caesar and his traitorous gaggle of Republican senators and representatives in Washington are going to take your healthcare from you. TV people, whose attention span is almost as short as Babyman’s, are going to pontificate over this video for hours.

But right now, Kentucky’s Mitch McConnell, Wisconsin’s Paul Ryan and their villainous vermin co-conspirators are looking at the weak among us and saying, “Yes, we can kill them, because we have to give tax cuts to billionaires.”

Billionaires like Babyman and their complicit offspring.

Yes, this is not normal. And yes, your life depends on it.

Babyman throws a squirrel at us

I refuse to deal with the latest episode of Pussygrabber vs. Squint and the Meat Puppet, because its the shiny object that’s taken attention from the real evil being perpetrated by the man who couldn’t win the popular vote.

And if you don’t know what real evil is being done, I’m going to give it to you in art form because if you didn’t immediately know, that means you only pay attention to cartoons, so this is more your speed:

And it that’s too complicated for you, examine this:

We really have become a nation of Dougs, easily distracted:

When the crimson babyman talks about fake news …

When the blow dried pussy grabber talks about fake news, remember this:

The framed copy of Time magazine was hung up in at least five of President Trump’s clubs, from South Florida to Scotland. Filling the entire cover was a photo of Donald Trump.

“Donald Trump: The ‘Apprentice’ is a television smash!” the big headline said. Above the Time nameplate, there was another headline in all caps: “TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS . . . EVEN TV!”

This cover — dated March 1, 2009 — looks like an impressive memento from Trump’s pre-presidential career. To club members eating lunch, or golfers waiting for a pro-shop purchase, it seemed to be a signal that Trump had always been a man who mattered. Even when he was just a reality TV star, Trump was the kind of star who got a cover story in Time.

But that wasn’t true.

The Time cover is a fake.

Of course it is.

“I can confirm that this is not a real TIME cover,” Kerri Chyka, a spokeswoman for Time Inc., wrote in an email to The Washington Post.

 

Dealing with a medical catastrophe

And we make this point because

Senate Republicans’ bill to erase major parts of the Affordable Care Act would cause an estimated 22 million more Americans to be uninsured by the end of the coming decade — only about a million fewer than similar legislation recently passed by the House, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

The forecast issued Monday by Congress’s nonpartisan budget scorekeepers also estimates that the Senate measure, drafted in secret mainly by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and aides, would reduce federal spending by $321 billion by 2026 — compared with $119 billion for the House’s version.

The CBO estimates that two-thirds of the drop in health coverage a decade from now would fall on low-income people who rely on Medicaid. And among the millions now buying private health plans through ACA marketplaces, the biggest losers would roughly parallel the ones under the House’s legislation: The sharpest spike in insurance premiums would fall on middle-aged and somewhat older Americans.

That’s right, pump truppets. This is what you asked for. You went all in for a lying orange shitgibbon, and he did exactly what shitgibbons do. He shat on you.

I now will quote Charlie Pierce at Esquire:

Today is not the day for you to ask for my understanding as to how you’re going to afford Grandma’s chemo now that she’s busted the lifetime cap on her insurance. Today is not the day for you to ask for my sympathy for Grandpa who’s going to get his ass hoisted out of his rest home and dropped onto the couch in your basement family room because his Medicaid ran out. Today is not the day for you to moan into TV cameras about how Cousin Clyde with the opioid problem has to go back to sticking up tourists for his fix because the little hospital up by the mountain closed. …

I’m sorry, but I can’t let the suckers off the hook on this particular Thursday, not when I know in my bones that, in a year or so, there are going to be more expeditions into The Real America in which we hear sad tales about the closing of rural hospitals, and medical bankruptcies, and children who died because the insurance company denied them a life-saving treatment. There will be all kinds of reasons postulated for this terrible state of affairs. “Culture” probably will be one of them, and it will be the stupidest one of all.

What will not be mentioned is that many of these people brought their tragedies on themselves, that voting has consequences, and that using a presidential election to hock a collective loogie at “The Establishment” and at Those People is a particularly dumbass way to participate in democracy.
