Remember when the GOP said impeachment was the answer to all of our problems?

The Rude Pundit does:

In 2013, then-Senator Tom Coburn mused at a town hall meeting, “I don’t have the legal background to know if that rises to ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ but I think you’re getting perilously close.” Coburn, a Republican (obviously) brought up impeachment of President Obama as a possible response to unspecified things that Obama had done. Mostly, presidenting while black, but probably Coburn would have said, “Something, something, something, immigrants.”

Around the same time, Republican Representative Blake Farenthold, 100 pounds of shit in a fifty pound bag from Fuck If I Care, Texas, told his constituents, who totally believed that Obama was born in Africa, “If we were to impeach the president tomorrow, we would probably get the votes in the House of Representatives to do it.” Walking cold sore Ted Cruz bemoaned to a bunch of his drooling maniacs, “To successfully impeach a president you need the votes in the U.S. Senate.” Neither Farenthold nor Cruz, in course of making Texas even dumber, gave any grounds for impeachment, just a general sense of something not right (see above, “presidenting while black”).

In 2013 and 2014, the Tea Party plague rats kept demanding to know why that goddamn Muslim Kenyan who was making us all into healthy gay Communists wasn’t being impeached. And their members of Congress were more than willing to indulge their idiot fantasy for a few whoops at rallies and a bunch of votes.

At least pubic hair-topped Rep. Jason Chaffetz wanted to impeach Obama for a reason: the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya (which, as you know, was worse than 100 9/11s times a dozen Pearl Harbors). And skeevy shitworm Steve King was hyped to impeach over Obama not being a complete dick to undocumented immigrant kids.

There’s a fuckin’ Wikipedia page devoted to all the reasons why Republicans talked about impeaching Obama, eight years worth. And not a goddamned one of them rises to the level of a single thing Donald Trump has done in the last four months.

A couple of Republicans are hinting at being open to impeachment. But the best representation of the cowardice and cravenness that is the GOP right now is that the Republicans in the House just blocked a vote on establishing an independent commission to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

It’s not just hypocrisy by many of the same Republicans who wanted to lynch Obama for every fake scandal they could conjure. Now, with Trump, they are likely aiding and abetting a pile of high crimes and a shit load of misdemeanors.

That’s good, orange babyman. That’s real good!

Paul Krugman says:

Fans of old TV series may remember a classic “Twilight Zone” episode titled “It’s a Good Life.” It featured a small town terrorized by a 6-year-old who for some reason had monstrous superpowers, coupled with complete emotional immaturity. Everyone lived in constant fear, made worse by the need to pretend that everything was fine. After all, any hint of discontent could bring terrible retribution.

And now you know what it must be like working in the Trump administration. Actually, it feels a bit like that just living in Trump’s America.

That’s about right. Because it must be like this:

And here’s the confirmation:

One key development: White House aides have figured out that it’s best not to present Trump with too many competing options when it comes to matters of policy or strategy. Instead, the way to win Trump over, they say, is to present him a single preferred course of action and then walk him through what the outcome could be – and especially how it will play in the press.

“You don’t walk in with a traditional presentation, like a binder or a PowerPoint. He doesn’t care. He doesn’t consume information that way,” said one senior administration official. “You go in and tell him the pros and cons, and what the media coverage is going to be like.”

Downplaying the downside risk of a decision can win out in the short term. But the risk is a presidential dressing-down—delivered in a yell. “You don’t want to be the person who sold him on something that turned out to be a bad idea,” the person said.

The dressing down goes something like this:

YOU’RE A BAD ADVISER!
YOU’RE A VERY BAD ADVISER!

The battle of the babymen would be bad for all of us

The orange geriatric babyman from Mar-a-Lago did this yesterday:

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday a major conflict with North Korea is possible in the standoff over its nuclear and missile programs, but he would prefer a diplomatic outcome to the dispute.

“There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea. Absolutely,” Trump told Reuters in an Oval Office interview ahead of his 100th day in office on Saturday. …

The Trump administration on Wednesday declared North Korea “an urgent national security threat and top foreign policy priority.” It said it was focusing on economic and diplomatic pressure, including Chinese cooperation in containing its defiant neighbor and ally, and remained open to negotiations.

U.S. officials said military strikes remained an option but played down the prospect, though the administration has sent an aircraft carrier and a nuclear-powered submarine to the region in a show of force.

Any direct U.S. military action would run the risk of massive North Korean retaliation and huge casualties in Japan and South Korea and among U.S. forces in both countries.

In the meantime, the pudgy psycho babyman in North Korea is sending this out into the world:

On a personal note, I spend most of my time about a mile from the U.S. Capitol, so the end of this video is not anything I ever want to see.

But we’re in a world of incompetent petulant babymen who are obsessed with showing the world how big their baby penises are.

So, yes. We should be very worried.

In the meantime, one of Hookerpiss’s favorite media outlets is reporting this:

Beware of Osama bin Baby

From the Guardian:

A three-month old baby was summoned to the US embassy in London for an interview after his grandfather mistakenly identified him as a terrorist.

Harvey Kenyon-Cairns had been due to fly to Orlando in Florida for his first overseas holiday, until his grandfather Paul Kenyon made the error on a visa waiver form.

On the part of the Esta form which reads “Do you seek to engage in or have you ever engaged in terrorist activities, espionage, sabotage, or genocide?” Kenyon ticked yes instead of no.

He only learned of his error when his grandson’s travel was refused. “I couldn’t believe that they couldn’t see it was a genuine mistake and that a three-month-old baby would be no harm to anyone,” said the 62-year-old.

The baby was taken from his home in Poynton, Cheshire, to the embassy in Grosvenor Square, London, to be questioned by officials. The round trip took about 10 hours, longer than the nine-and-a-half-hour flight time from Manchester to Orlando.

Here’s the alleged terrorist and the grandpa who ratted him out:

One other small question. So a terrorist would answer “yes” to that question on the visa waiver form?

Putting the big boy boom boom in perspective

So what did the midget thumbed little Caesar actually accomplish with his big bomb on ISIS.

Here’s a comparison:

On first glance, based on size, this looks really bad, because in Trumpworld, size matters.

But what’s the actual explosive yield?

And here’s something else you should know about the MOAB:

So there you have it. As with everything the annoying orange does, there are performance issues. Why doesn’t he just buy a new Maserati, like all of the other insecure tiny tooled rich guys?

Small fingered vulgarian drops big bomb

This is not good:

The US military dropped America’s most powerful non-nuclear bomb on ISIS targets in Afghanistan Thursday, the first time this type of weapon has been used in battle, according to US officials.

A GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb (MOAB), nicknamed the “mother of all bombs,” was dropped at 7:32 p.m. local time, according to four US military officials with direct knowledge of the mission. A MOAB is a 30-foot-long, 21,600-pound, GPS-guided munition.

Trump won't say if he signed off on bomb use

President Donald Trump called it “another successful job” later Thursday.
To recap: When Pussy-grabber dropped a few dozen bombs on and airstrip in Syria a few days ago, a bunch of moron pundits urged him on saying he was acting presidential. He liked hearing good things said about him, so he decided “if they thought that was cool, let’s make a bigger BOOM.”
And you know that’s how his mind works. (Me make boom boom in toilet and daddy says I’m a good boy. I make bigger boom boom next time and daddy will love me more!)
DON’T ENCOURAGE HIM! IF HE THINKS THIS IS GOOD, YOU KNOW WHAT HE’LL DO NEXT!!!
