From the New York Times:
Trump says it is ‘foolish’ to remove Civil War statues
This motherfucker is like the captain of the Titanic. I understand he wants to represent the people who put him in office (though I don’t think anybody knows how many people vote on these types of issues) but it is his sheer refusal to ever give an inch no matter how much it destroys his political future that is really noteworthy.
Of all the issues to go to the mat for a bunch of fucking statues. They are racist symbols and they should come down but his inability to step back and ask himself if this is at the core of his Presidency.
It’s impossible to tell if this issue really matters to him or if he’s unable to ever concede anything.
It’s really spectacular self-destruction as there aren’t enough white supremacists to return him for a second term.
Headline from Clinton bootlicker Michael Tomasky at the Daily Beast here:
The 2020 Democratic Purity Olympics Are Already Underway
The Bernie Sanders supporters attacking Kamala Harris are itching to refight 2016 and demand a level of purity that, lo and behold, only one candidate can possibly attain.
This mainstream Democratic commentator has a lot of balls getting in Sanders’ supporters’ faces after his horse ran one of the worst political races in the American history.
Headline from Daily Beast here:
“Part of the reason I think that the storyline is that we haven’t done much is because in part the president and others have set these early timelines about things need to be done by a certain point,”
So if you gave them 10 years they could repeal Obamacare???
I don’t think Trumpy’s timelines were the main reason why Obamacare was not sent to the grave.
Y’all had 7 fucking years to get a plan together so when you rose to power you could rock it muy pronto.
Alas it was just a massive bitch-fest designed to get Republicans elected and I maintain that neither Republicans nor Democrats give much if any kind of meaningful shit about Americans’ health care.
It’s a political circle jerk.
From the New York Times:
With Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu likely to face charges stemming from two graft cases, his critics are asking how long he can stave off what they view as his looming political demise.
Well, this will be a sad day if it comes when Netanyahu drags his murderous, crooked carcass off the world stage.
A world class fucker if there ever was one.
From Bloomberg here:
Hours after his conviction, Shkreli proclaimed on YouTube the mixed verdict by the federal jury in Brooklyn as an “astounding victory.”
“I’m one of the richest New Yorkers there is, and after today’s outcome it’s going to stay that way,” he said, showing no sign of contrition.
Lawyers unconnected with the case said comments on YouTube and other social media by the famously outspoken 34-year-old could backfire at sentencing.
“He seems to lack any remorse so this will likely cause the judge to avoid appearing lenient when she sentences him,” said James Cox, a law professor at Duke University.
First off, fuck this dude, he’s a piece of shit. An ethical turd of greater magnificence than even El Trump-o himself!
Maybe he could go on tour with rapist Bill Cosby for 2018’s ill bitch/no remorse tour.
