Angela Rye Cuts Loose on Omarosa

The video sound is bad, but you may be able to turn the sound up enough to hear it – There is a better version on Twitter @AngelaRye.com

Angela Rye slams Omarosa to her face in scalding takedown of ‘president’s apprentice’

Angela Rye brought down the house with her fiery denunciation of Omarosa Manigault and her boss, President Donald Trump.

The CNN political commentator and former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus spoke after the White House advisor Thursday at the National Action Network convention, reported Politico.

Manigault touted her advocacy work with the Trump administration on behalf of historically black colleges and universities, and the audience groaned when she vowed to fight on their behalf from the White House.

But Rye drew a rousing response when she scolded the Trump adviser and former “Apprentice” contestant.

“I’m going to bring the fire right now,” Rye said. “Moments ago, we were joined by your president’s apprentice. The truth is, when you tell somebody you’re going to fight for them, I’m going to tell you how not to fight for them.”

“You don’t fight for them by putting forth a tax reform plan that cuts corporate tax rates but ignores the poor,” she continued. “You don’t fight for them by cutting taxes for the rich, and ensuring that burden is going to be on the backs of the poor and ordinary black and brown people.”

The audience roared as Rye slammed the president and Manigault — including the racist “birther” conspiracy theory that brought Trump into national politics.

“How you don’t fight for [your community] is by trivializing our first black president, Barack Obama, by questioning his citizenship, by questioning his validity,” Rye said. “How you don’t fight for us is by pissing on me and telling me it’s rain.”

“Resist, y’all,” Rye said, as she walked away from the microphone.

More Bad News for Faux News…The Postal Service Joins the Investigation

The hits just keep on coming. Now the Postal Service is investigating Faux News for being “Funny with the money” Postal Fraud includes a number of things, including money laundering, false statements about finances, and transmission of fraudulent documents. This is serious stuff, typically Felony level.

Federal investigation into Fox News involves “financial crimes experts”

The federal investigation into Fox News is widening with two agencies now looking into the network’s practices.

A person familiar with the investigation has confirmed to CBS News that investigators from the U.S. Postal Inspection Service are involved in the Justice Department probe into Fox News. That investigation is reportedly looking into money matters at the network, reports CBS News correspondent Jericka Duncan.

While the existence of the Justice Department investigation came to light two months ago, the Postal Inspection Service’s involvement is new.

Meanwhile, the network has been lashed by a series of conduct-related lawsuits.

Eleven current and former employees filed a class action suit last month, claiming executives fostered a “culture of severe racial harassment” and ignored their complaints going back years.

Fox News denied those claims, promising to “vigorously defend these cases.”

O’Reilly Replacement Already on (Forced) Vacation

O’Reilly’s “frat boy” buddy Jesse Waters is already in “time out”, less than a week into supposedly replacing his mentor who was fired.

His sin? Using sexual innuendo, men’s locker room “humor” on Ivanka Trump.

World Class stupid.

Jesse Watters announces a surprise “vacation” after his Ivanka Trump quip

Déjà vu: Watters follows the path of his mentor, Bill O’Reilly, meaning we may never have to hear from him again

Fox News host Jesse Watters could not even make it a week in his new prime-time slot without offending his audience and colleagues. Watters announced that he is taking an abrupt vacation after his offhand comment about Ivanka Trump stirred a controversy.

“I’m going to be taking a vacation with my family, so I’m not going to be here tomorrow,” Watters said during Wednesday’s “The Five.” “I’ll be back on Monday, so don’t miss me too much.”

Last week, Watters scored a promotion to be a co-host on “The Five” after Fox News reshuffled its prime-time slate to accommodate O’Reilly’s departure. Watters had been a roving correspondent for “The O’Reilly Factor” and even hosted a spinoff show called “Watters World.”

Alas, Watters’ young, burgeoning career as a conservative pundit could be in danger. The last time a Fox News personality announced an unanticipated vacation, he never returned. On Tuesday, Watters made an inappropriate remark about the president’s daughter.

“It’s funny, you know, the left says they really respect women and then when given an opportunity to respect a women like that they boo and hiss,” Watters said. “So I don’t really get what’s going on here, but I really liked how she was speaking into that microphone.”

Add to the List of Chumph’s Cadre Busted – Steve Bannon and “Seinfield”

Apparently the whole Steve Bannon – “Making millions from Seinfeld TV Show” schtick was a lie as well.

Bannon gets busted…Again.

BUSTED: There are no records of Steve Bannon making money off ‘Seinfeld’ and yadda yadda yadda

A key part of the mythos surrounding embattled White House adviser Stephen K. Bannon is that he makes millions of dollar in royalties from a savvy investment that included profit participation in the sitcom “Seinfeld,” but a New Yorker article about Bannon’s years in Hollywood is now casting doubt on that claim.

In an essay titled, “How Hollywood Remembers Steve Bannon,” journalist Connie Bruck dissects a number of Bannon’s key claims about his time in the movie industry and finds that most of them — including the “Seinfeld” story — don’t really hold up under scrutiny.

“Last November, when Bannon was named Donald Trump’s chief White House strategist, many articles highlighted an extraordinary fact about his Hollywood career: that he had negotiated a profit participation in ‘Seinfeld’ in 1993, two years before the show went into syndication,” said Bruck. “Forbes reported that, if Bannon had a one-per-cent share in the profits, ‘he would have made about $32.6 million since 1998,’ and went on to say that ‘Bannon’s steady “Seinfeld” income’ was supporting his career as a conservative propagandist.”

The factoid first surfaced in a 2015 Bloomberg Businessweek profile of Bannon. According to Bannon, Westinghouse Electric hired his firm to sell the corporation’s small share in an entertainment company called Castle Rock.

Media mogul and CNN founder Ted Turner was interested in buying all of Castle Rock including minority shareholders. Bannon said he advised Westinghouse to take the offer. The company’s representatives reportedly told Bannon that if the deal was so great, he should put up some of his own cash for the properties in the Castle Rock portfolio. One of them was “Seinfeld.”

“Some of those who were responsible for ‘Seinfeld’ became agitated by Bannon’s story,” wrote Bruck. “Larry David, the show’s head writer and executive producer, told me, ‘I don’t think I ever heard of him until he surfaced with the Trump campaign and I had no idea that he was profiting from the work of industrious Jews!’”

However, when Bruck scrutinized the deal — which Bannon and Co. reportedly came away from with a small portion of Castle Rock’s TV package — and followed it through a series of acquisitions and mergers until she found that after 1995, Warner Bros. acquired “Seinfeld” and began to send out regular profit participation statements.

“The Castle Rock and the Westinghouse records from the early months of syndication are not readily available,” wrote Brock. “It is possible that Bannon’s deal was capped and paid out at that time. But, since then, neither CBS nor Castle Rock nor Warner Bros. has records of payments to Bannon, if those records are as they were described to me.”

Got a little Blue Eyed Soul just for Steve…Not sure how the dancing girl in a skimpy bikini made it past the TV censors in 1965, but here goes.

Lowest Approval Rating in History – Welcome to the “Ghetto”, Chumph

Even folks who voted for him are learning to hate him…

Donald Trump is historically unpopular as he reaches the 100-day mark

He is the first president since modern polling began to fall below 50 percent at this point in his presidency

Less than two weeks after a Gallup survey discovered a 17-point drop in the number of Americans who believe President Donald Trump keeps his promises, a new poll reveals that Trump has the lowest approval rating of any president at their 100-day mark since the start of the survey.

Only 44 percent of Americans approve of how Trump is handling the presidency at this point in his administration, compared to 54 percent who disapprove, according to a recent poll by CNN/ORC.  This puts him at the bottom of the list of 12 presidents (himself included). The next lowest, Bill Clinton, had a 55 percent approval rating at this point in his administration.

Although there is a sharp partisan divide in voters’ perceptions of Trump — 85 percent of Republicans approve of him, compared to only 8 percent of Democrats — there is bad news for Trump even within his own party. While 82 percent of Republicans had a lot of confidence in Trump’s ability to handle the economy, that number has fallen to 72 percent now. Similarly, Trump has experienced a 13 point drop in Republicans who believe he will appoint the best people to office, a 9 point drop among Republicans who are confident in his leadership skills, a 13 point drop in Republicans who believe he can unite the country, an 8 point drop in Republicans who believe he will effectively manage the government, and a 10 point drop in Republicans who think he cares about people like themselves.

A recent Fox News Poll contains similarly inauspicious findings for the president. It puts Trump’s approval rating at 45 percent, well below the marks attained by Barack Obama (62 percent) and George W. Bush (63 percent) at this point in their presidencies. Perhaps most strikingly, only 36 percent of voters say they would want to re-elect Trump, compared to 55 percent who would not — of whom 47 percent say they would “definitely” vote for someone else. Even among people who voted for Trump in 2016, only 49 percent said they would definitely vote to reelect him in 2020. By contrast, Barack Obama had 64 percent support among his own voters from 2008 at this point in his administration (his overall reelection number was 52 percent).

Oh yeah…

Former Chumph NSC Adviser Flynn Now Under Investigation By Pentagon

Every day, another layer of dirt on Putin’s Bitch’s boys taking bribes from Russia.

Elijah Cummings just released new docs that destroy Mike Flynn’s defense for taking foreign cash

Newly released documents reveal that the Department of Defense warned former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn against taking money from foreign governments — but nevertheless, he persisted.

CNN reports that the new documents show Flynn was warned by the Defense Intelligence Agency to not accept cash from foreign governments in 2014 as he entered retirement. Flynn nonetheless took money from both the Russian and Turkish governments for paid speeches and for lobbying work, respectively.

“These documents raise grave questions about why General Flynn concealed the payments he received from foreign sources after he was warned explicitly by the Pentagon,” said Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), who released the documents on Thursday. “Our next step is to get the documents we are seeking from the White House so we can complete our investigation. I thank the Department of Defense for providing us with unclassified versions of these documents.”

In a press statement on the documents, Cummings also noted that the newly revealed DIA letter “counters the suggestion by Flynn’s attorney on Tuesday that Flynn followed appropriate procedures for accepting foreign funds for his trip to Moscow.”

Both Cummings and Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) this week said that it appeared that Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general, might have committed a felony by not disclosing payments he received from foreign governments before he assumed the role of national security adviser.

What’s that thing Stevie Wonder sang?

“So, it’s gettin’ ready to blow
It’s gettin’ ready to show
Somebody shot off at the mouth and
We’re gettin’ ready to know

It’s gettin’ ready to drop
It’s gettin’ ready to shock
Somebody done turned up the heater
An’a it’s gettin’ ready to pop”
