A blast from the past:
U.S. first lady Melania Trump did not cover her head Saturday when they arrived in Saudi Arabia on the opening leg of his first international tour since taking office.
Two years ago, then-citizen Trump criticized then-first lady Michelle Obama’s decision to go bare-headed on a January 2015 visit with her husband.
“Many people are saying it was wonderful that Mrs. Obama refused to wear a scarf in Saudi Arabia, but they were insulted. We have enuf enemies,” Trump tweeted at the time, including a short-hand spelling for “enough.”…
While Mrs. Trump dressed conservatively Saturday in a long-sleeved, black pantsuit accented with a wide, gold-colored belt, her below-the-shoulder brown hair blew in the breeze at King Khalid International Airport in the capital city of Riyadh.
She followed the example set by other, high-profile Western women, including Mrs. Obama.
I’m blaming you, pump truppets. He’s a lying bucket of horse vomit and has always been one. And you keep letting him vomit in your skull cavity.
Just to be in full agreement, pump truppets would let the ochre pussy grabber burn their houses down just so they could see liberals choke on the smoke for 15 minutes.
The man who created Fox News is dead:
Roger Ailes, who built Fox News into a cable powerhouse before leaving the company last year, died Thursday morning at the age of 77.
The Ohio-born television pioneer was a confidant of presidents and an acknowledged master of communications. He founded Fox News in 1996 and built it into the nation’s long-running No. 1 cable news network. Ailes resigned from Fox in July amid charges of sexual harassment.
Yeah, that’s right. I linked to Fox News because the pump truppets won’t believe it otherwise.
There are all kinds of things I could say, but I’ll defer to Tengrain at Mock, Paper, Scissors:
There is nothing nice I could say about him when he was alive, so there is nothing nice I can say about him now. There is probably no one more responsible for the toxic divide in this country than Roger Ailes.
I wish for Ailes everything he ever wished for us on the left.
I will note one thing, though. According to the lying New York Times:
The cause was complications of a subdural hematoma that Mr. Ailes sustained when he fell and struck his head on May 10 at his home in Palm Beach, Fla., the local authorities said.
This means that if he hadn’t been a sexual harasser, he would have instead been at work at Fox headquarters in New York the day he fell, and he would be alive today.
So Karma is a bitch. And she got even with him for sticking his slimy tongue on her face.
But beyond that it’s OK if the tax plan increases the deficit?
It is OK, because it won’t increase it for long. You may have two years where you’ll … you understand the expression “prime the pump”?
We have to prime the pump.
It’s very Keynesian.
We’re the highest-taxed nation in the world. Have you heard that expression before, for this particular type of an event?
Priming the pump?
Yeah, have you heard it?
Have you heard that expression used before? Because I haven’t heard it. I mean, I just … I came up with it a couple of days ago and I thought it was good. It’s what you have to do.
Honest to God, I didn’t remember that 1930 was last week.
Remind me again, who was the threat to national security in the 2016 presidential election?
President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.
The information the president relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said.
The partner had not given the United States permission to share the material with Russia, and officials said Trump’s decision to do so endangers cooperation from an ally that has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State. After Trump’s meeting, senior White House officials took steps to contain the damage, placing calls to the CIA and the National Security Agency.
“This is code-word information,” said a U.S. official familiar with the matter, using terminology that refers to one of the highest classification levels used by American spy agencies. Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.”
Obviously, this is how we got to this point:
I mean, do you have a better explanation?
