Chumph’s State of the Eunuch Speech

Looks like the Chumph may have had a pair…At least before Melania found out about his affair with Stormy Daniels….

Not sure came up with the idea for Democrats to wear black. Stupid idea. If they were going to dress in protest they should have worn a color visible on TV…like Red. That way regardless of how the camera panned the crowd you would have seen them sitting out the cheering of the Chumph’s cheesy lines.

Trump’s State of the Union: 18 WTF Moments

From naming rights to “chain migration,” the most startling moments of the president’s address

Donald Trump delivered his first State of the Union address on Tuesday night. In a divisive speech dressed up with language of unity, the president highlighted a stock market that has “smashed one record after another”; the GOP’s corporate giveaway – “the biggest tax cuts and reform in American history”; and his still-vague plans to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure. Relentlessly highlighting lurking dangers, Trump bashed America’s immigrants and terrorists and North Korea with equal vigor. The speech stretched the truth – so far that the Politifact fact-check website actually crashed.

The address was delivered in a charged House chambers: Many representatives and senators dressed in all black to support the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. Invited guests included dozens impacted by president Trump’s immigration policies, including Dreamers whose legal protections Trump revoked, refugees from “shithole” countries like El Salvador – whose temporary protected status Trump revoked – and family members of hardworking undocumented immigrants seized by Trump’s deportation force, ICE, in a crackdown that was supposed to target only “bad hombres.”

Marital tension was also on display. Melania Trump attended and clapped, unsmiling, as her husband arrived. (Given the WWE-ification of our politics, it was perhaps a bit surprising that neither Stormy Daniels, the porn star and alleged Trump paramour, nor Michael Wolff, chronicler of White House dysfunction in Fire and Fury, scored an invite.)

The speech was vintage Teleprompter Trump – underscoring the president’s occasional ability to read soberly from a script, without lapsing into his more familiar insulting outbursts or simian dominance displays. But despite the presentable topspin, weird and unscripted moments flashed through.

Here are the 18 WTF moments from Trump’s first State of the Union.

1. WTF, I thought it was his second State of the Union.
Yes, we all remember the president’s first address to a joint session of Congress in February 2017. Trump turned the widow of a fallen Navy SEAL into a political prop – prompting CNN’s Van Jones to gush: “He became President of the United States in that moment, period.” But for reasons – dull, pedantic reasons – a new president’s first speech to Congress is not recognized as a State of the Union. That makes Trump’s 2018 address SOTU numero uno.

2. It was also America’s first ever “State of the Uniom”
From the president who brought you the imaginary African nation of “Nambia,” and the exacting White House staff that misspelled the name of the British Prime minister, the “opiod crisis,” and the Nordic country, “Normway,” the Trump administration offered members of congress official tickets to his “State of the Uniom” address. The typo prompted Democrat Rep. Raul Grijalva to tweet: “Just received my ticket for the State of the Union. Looks like @BetsyDeVosEd was in charge of spell checking.” The Arizona Democrat referred to Trump’s Secretary of “Educatuon,” whose official Twitter feed once misspelled the name of black intellectual “W.E.B. DeBois” before tweeting “our deepest apologizes.”

3. …and the first ever SOTU with naming rights.
On the Monday before the speech, the president’s reelection campaign rolled out a gimmick to sell naming rights to the State of the Union. Donors could pay to see their names float luminously over the “Official Donald J. Trump for President livestream” of the State of the Union. The sales pitch read: “This is a movement. It’s not about just one of us. It’s about ALL of us. Which is why your name deserves to be displayed during Tuesday night’s speech” – all for the low, low donation of $35.

4. When Trump claimed Obama’s job creation as his own.
In his speech, Trump wanted to boast about his impact on the economy. Trouble is, the American economy created only 2.1 million jobs in Trump’s first year, a slowdown from 2016. To come up with what Trump called “tremendous numbers,” he co-opted the last months of Obama’s jobs record to declare: “Since the election, we have created 2.4 million new jobs.”

5. When Trump skipped California in his prayer for recovery.
Highlighting his commitment to survivors of America’s myriad climate disasters in 2017, Trump was supposed to reassure “everyone still recovering in Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, California and everywhere else – we are with you, we love you, and we will pull through together.” But in his speech, Trump skipped over California – the state where voters deprived him of a win the the popular vote.

6. When Trump gave only a glancing mention to Puerto Rico.
Puerto Rico – where Americans still lack electricity, where recovery hasn’t been fully funded by congress and where FEMA just announced it would stop delivering food and water – received a single mention in the State of the Union. Did you miss it? (Hint: reread WTF #5)

7. When Trump tried to pull one over on Black America.
Taking credit for job growth for black Americans that began under Obama (and has continued under Trump) the 45th president triumphantly declared: “African-American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded.” The cameras then cut to black lawmakers. If looks could kill, Mike Pence would now be president.

8. When Trump said “Qweed” and “Scorge.”
Teleprompted Trump is an adventure – in particular when it takes the president out of his typically fourth-grade vocabulary. Trump’s speech presented him with the words “creed” and “scourge” – both of which escaped his lips as though he’d never said them out loud before.

9. When Trump called for an end to “chain migration.”
Adopting the language of white nationalists, Trump called for an end to “chain migration,” which he described as allowing “a single immigrant [to] bring in virtually unlimited numbers of distant relatives.” The leader of the Republican Party – for generations the party of “family values” – is calling for an end to the long-standing American policy of “family reunification,” which allows new citizens to sponsor only their immediate family members to immigrate to the United States. Today, the president’s Slovenian in-laws – the grandparents of his son – are likely in country by virtue of this law. Family reunification is also far from the easy process Trump describes. The immigration backlog means it now often takes a quarter century or more for a new citizen to get a green card for, say, her sister in Mexico.

10. When Trump demagogued immigrants.
Not once mentioning the DACA program that he has suspended, or the 800,000 hardworking young Dreamers he’s placed in limbo, Trump spent much of his speech trashing immigrants, more broadly, as people who don’t “contribute to our society” or “love and respect our country.”

“For decades, open borders have allowed drugs and gangs to pour into our most vulnerable communities,” Trump said. “They have allowed millions of low-wage workers to compete for jobs and wages against the poorest Americans. Most tragically, they have caused the loss of many innocent lives.” Trump then spoke of his “sacred duty” to “defend Americans” because “Americans are dreamers, too.”

11. When Trump called his immigration demands a “down the middle compromise.”
Trump’s proposed immigration reforms would cut legal immigration in half. This is a bridge too far even top Republicans, who are calling the plan “bad for the economy.”

12. When Trump praised ICE as “great, great… great, great.”
Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been in the news frequently in recent weeks for moving to deport hard-working immigrant breadwinners, business owners and even doctors from their families and the country they’ve lived in since childhood. Trump heaped praise on ICE agents, calling them: “Great, great people. These are great, great people, who work so hard in the midst of such danger.”

13. When Trump glossed over corporate downsizing and layoffs.
Trump touted businesses that have, in a synchronized PR campaign, offered employees one-time bonuses, in the wake of the GOP’s permanent corporate tax cut, worth trillions of dollars America’s richest businesses. “Three million workers have already gotten tax cut bonuses – many of them thousands of dollars per worker,” Trump said. But Trump glossed over another long list of companies – including WalmartKimberly-ClarkBank of AmericaHoneywell and Boeing – that have taken the tax cuts as a spur to slash jobs, close stores, hike fees and/or spend, bigly, on stock buybacks or dividend payouts to investors.

14. When Trump tried to sell a $200 billion infrastructure plan as being worth $1.5 trillion.
Trump insisted is is time to “time to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure.” But in twisted language he called on Congress “to produce a bill that generates at least $1.5 trillion for the new infrastructure investment we need.” The odd language is the result of a White House plan for just $200 billion in direct federal funding – which will somehow leveraging state and private funds to drive another $1.3 trillion investment.

15. When Trump claimed victories in wars nobody knew we’d been fighting.
“We have ENDED the war on American Energy” declared Trump, adding: “We are now very proudly an exporter of energy to the world.” Trump failed to note that the four-decade ban on oil exports was lifted by his predecessor, Barack Obama. Elaborating on the alleged armistice, Trump also insisted: “We have ENDED the War on BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN COAL.”

16. When Trump pledged more Gitmo.
Trump appeared to hint a renewed rough treatment for terrorists captured on the battlefield: “Terrorists are not merely criminals,” Trump said. “They are unlawful enemy combatants. And when captured overseas, they should be treated like the terrorists they are.” Trump called on Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to “reexamine our military detention policy and to keep open the detention facilities at Guantánamo Bay.”

17. When Trump extended an olive branch….
Trump is one of the most divisive presidents in modern memory yet at times his speech struck unexpected, unifying chords. “This is our new American moment,” Trump said. “Tonight, I want to talk about what kind of future we are going to have, and what kind of Nation we are going to be. All of us, together, as one team, one people and one American family. We all share the same home, the same heart, the same destiny, and the same great American flag.”

18) …and then beat his opponents with it.
The flag was a warning sign. Trump soon pivoted back to his divisive rhetoric, calling out those who protest injustice and police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem. To do so, Trump highlighted the work of a child named Preston who has been marking the graves on Veterans’ Day with American flags. “Preston’s reverence for those who have served our Nation reminds us why we salute our flag,” Trump said, “why we put our hands on our hearts for the pledge of allegiance,” Trump added – now glaring at the Democratic side of the aisle – “and why we proudly stand for the national anthem.”

DeRay McKesson Sues Faux News for Lies On Air

Considering what happened to Gawker a few months back, Faux News may want to put a muzzle on their “house negroes”. That “First Amendment defense got thrown out the first day.

Added to that is the incredible losing streak by the Faux Lawyers – if they aren’t making multi-million payouts due to Faux News rapists and gropers, they are making multi-million dollar  payouts due to Faux News racists and bigots.

Add this one to the list. If you follow the link to DeRay’s page and watch the video, the defamation case is pretty straightforward.

Payday! Biiiiiiiiig Payday.

At some point Faux is going to have to reign in theif clowns.

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro claims free speech defense in Black Lives Matter lawsuit

A Black Lives Matter activist is suing Fox News host Jeanine Pirro for defamation after she claimed during an appearance on Fox & Friends that he directed someone to throw a rock at a police officer’s face.

Early this week DeRay McKesson—who was himself sued along with the Black Lives Matter movement by a police officer who was seriously injured in the incident at a Baton Rouge protest in 2016— filed the suit against Pirro.

The officer’s case was dismissed in September by a federal judge in Louisiana who ruled McKesson couldn’t be held liable for the officer’s injuries and that there was no evidence that he gave specific instructions to the unidentified protester who threw the rock.

A day after the ruling, Pirro—who hosts the show Justice with Judge Jeanine—appeared as a commentator on Fox & Friends and said “McKesson, the organizer, actually was directing people, directing the violence.”

., I was found not guilty & I didn’t direct any violence. In fact, I was protesting the violence of the police. Stop lying.

During the segment Pirro points out that the judge who dismissed the suit was appointed by former President Barack Obama, an African American. She claimed the ruling was motivated by politics and made by an activist judge.

McKesson claims that Pirro defamed him by making the statements while discussing the lawsuit after it had been dismissed.

“Defendant Pirro, a lawyer for over 40 years discussing a well-publicized matter, was aware that these outrageous statements were false and made them with the specific intention of harming Mr. McKesson,” his suit claims.

“Falsely stating that Mr. McKesson assaults police officers has seriously endangered Mr. McKesson’s physical safety,” it continued.

In September Pirro responded to McKesson’s concerns and questions about her statement from The Washington Post. “Based on 32 years in law enforcement, you can only be found not guilty after a trial. McKesson was not tried. I was quoting paragraph 17 and 19 from court documents,” she said.

Fox News claims that Pirro’s statements are protected First Amendment speech. “We informed Mr. McKesson’s counsel that our commentary was fully protected under the First Amendment and the privilege for reports of judicial proceedings. We will defend this case vigorously,” the network said.

USA Today Unloads on the Chumph!

Wow! Some folks have had enough!

USA Today’s Editorial Board unloads on the Chumph.

A president who’d all but call a senator a whore is unfit to clean toilets in Obama’s presidential library or to shine George W. Bush’s shoes

And the chickenshit Democrats are too cowardly to stand up….Again.

Will Trump’s lows ever hit rock bottom?

A president who’d all but call a senator a whore is unfit to clean toilets in Obama’s presidential library or to shine George W. Bush’s shoes: Our view

With his latest tweet, clearly implying that a United States senator would trade sexual favors for campaign cash, President Trump has shown he is not fit for office. Rock bottom is no impediment for a president who can always find room for a new low.

Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday dismissed the president’s smear as a misunderstanding because he used similar language about men. Of course, words used about men and women are different. When candidate Trump said a journalist was bleeding from her “wherever,” he didn’t mean her nose.

And as is the case with all of Trump’s digital provocations, the president’s words were deliberate. He pours the gasoline of sexist language and lights the match gleefully knowing how it will burst into flame in a country reeling from the #MeToo moment.

A president who would all but call Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand a whore is not fit to clean the toilets in the Barack Obama Presidential Library or to shine the shoes of George W. Bush.

This isn’t about the policy differences we have with all presidents or our disappointment in some of their decisions. Obama and Bush both failed in many ways. They broke promises and told untruths, but the basic decency of each man was never in doubt.

Donald Trump, the man, on the other hand, is uniquely awful. His sickening behavior is corrosive to the enterprise of a shared governance based on common values and the consent of the governed.

It should surprise no one how low he went with Gillibrand. When accused during the campaign of sexually harassing or molesting women in the past, Trump’s response was to belittle the looks of his accusers. Last October, Trump suggested that he never would have groped Jessica Leeds on an airplane decades ago: “Believe me, she would not be my first choice, that I can tell you.” Trump mocked another accuser, former People reporter Natasha Stoynoff, “Check out her Facebook, you’ll understand.”  Other celebrities and politicians have denied accusations, but none has stooped as low as suggesting that their accusers weren’t attractive enough to be honored with their gropes.

If recent history is any guide, the unique awfulness of the Trump era in U.S. politics is only going to get worse. Trump’s utter lack of morality, ethics and simple humanity has been underscored during his 11 months in office. Let us count the ways:

  • He is enthusiastically supporting Alabama’s Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused of pursuing — and in one case molesting and in another assaulting — teenagers as young as 14 when Moore was a county prosecutor in his 30s. On Tuesday, Trump summed up his willingness to support a man accused of criminal conduct: “Roy Moore will always vote with us.”
  • Trump apparently is going for some sort of record for lying while in office. As of mid-November, he had made 1,628 misleading or false statements in 298 days in office. That’s 5.5 false claims per day, according to a count kept by The Washington Post’s fact-checkers.
  • Trump takes advantage of any occasion — even Monday’s failed terrorist attack in New York — to stir racial, religious or ethnic strife. Congress “must end chain migration,” he said Monday, because the terror suspect “entered our country through extended-family chain migration, which is incompatible with national security.” So because one man — 27-year-old Akayed Ullah, a lawful permanent resident of the U.S. who came from Bangladesh on a family immigrant visa in 2011 —  is accused of attacking America, all immigrants brought to this country by family are suspect? Trump might have some credibility if his criticism of immigrants was solely about terrorists. It isn’t.  It makes no difference to him if an immigrant is a terrorist or a federal judge. He once smeared an Indiana-born judge whose parents emigrated from Mexico. It’s all the same to this president.
  • A man who clearly wants to put his stamp on the government, Trump hasn’t even done his job when it comes to filling key government positions that require Senate confirmation. As of last week, Trump had failed to nominate anyone for 60% of 1,200 key positions he can fill to keep the government running smoothly.
  • Trump has shown contempt for ethical strictures that have bound every president in recent memory.  He has refused to release his tax returns, with the absurd excuse that it’s because he is under audit.  He has refused to put his multibillion dollar business interests in a blind trust and peddles the fiction that putting them in the hands of his sons does the same thing.

Not to mention calling white supremacists “very fine people,” pardoning a lawless sheriff, firing a respected FBI director, and pushing the Justice Department to investigate his political foes.

It is a shock that only six Democratic senators are calling for our unstable president to resign.

The nation doesn’t seek nor expect perfect presidents, and some have certainly been deeply flawed. But a president who shows such disrespect for the truth, for ethics, for the basic duties of the job and for decency toward others fails at the very essence of what has always made America great.

Another Chumph Lie About Obama Implodes At John Kelly’s Family Expense

Another of the POS Chumph lies, this one embarassing his Chief of Staff John Kelly

The Chumph’s lie – that no other President had called the parents or spouses of our servicemen who had died in the line of duty.

This is not only criminally embarrassing to John Kelly and his family but shows a complete lack of empathy for this honorable man and his family’s feelings to be used as props for the POS’s lies.

The Plastic Patriots waiving their little flags in their false support of our Military who don’t have a problem with this or support the Chumph need to outed for the hypocritical POS’s they are.

John Kelly and his wife sat with Michelle Obama at Gold Star family gathering after son’s death: report

 

President Donald Trump politicized the death of his chief of staff’s son to slur his predecessor — and it appears he may not be telling the whole truth.

Trump claimed Monday that President Barack Obama did not call the families of slain service members, and he suggested Tuesday that the former president had disrespected retired Gen. John Kelly by neglecting to call when his Marine son was killed.

“You could ask General Kelly if he got a call from Obama,” Trump said.

It’s not clear that Obama offered condolences to Kelly by phone, but CNN’s Jeff Zeleny said the retired general and his wife joined first lady Michelle Obama at her table during a White House breakfast for Gold Star families in 2011.

Gen. Kelly and wife attended Gold Star families breakfast at WH in 2011 and sat at Mrs. Obama’s table, person familiar with breakfast says.

The Associated Press confirmed that White House visitor logs showed that the Kelly family attended the event.

“President Obama engaged families of the fallen and wounded warriors throughout his presidency through calls, letters, visits to [Arlington Cemetery], visits to Walter Reed, visits to Dover, and regular meetings with Gold Star families at the White House and across the country,” a former White House official told Politico.

Second Lt. Robert Kelly was killed at age 29 while leading a platoon in Afghanistan in November 2010, and his father delivered a speech four days later about military sacrifices and the troops’ growing isolation from society.

His father has largely avoided speaking publicly about his family’s loss since then, and asked the Marine Corps officer who introduced him ahead of that impassioned speech not to mention his son.

“We are only one of 5,500 American families who have suffered the loss of a child in this war,” Kelly told the Washington Post six years ago. “The death of my boy simply cannot be made to seem any more tragic than the others.”

Faux News Lies About Mass Shooter in Vegas

The Police are collecting information on the murderer in Las Vegas. A lot of things are unknown at this point. . At least one of the weapons found with the shooter inn the Hotel room was converted to full automatic. The likely culprit is an AK-47 variant Police found on a tripod mount. Automatic weapons are only legal in the US for a civilian to own with a special license from the ATF. At this point, and until they get the guns studied in their lab, they don’t know if the 10 guns found in the hotel room were modified. There has been no statement on the shooter having a special license to own automatic weapons. Ownership without a license is illegal.

Faux New’s assertion that all of the guns owned by the killer were “legal”…

Is a lie.

Nice to see Deppidy Lawn Jockey has found part-time work though.
