This style should enter American politics

Headline from CNBC:

Comey on White House’s criticism of FBI: ‘Those were lies plain and simple’

I’m no expert on Jim Comey and his career and he sure did do some strange shit when the election was going on last year.

However, I give him respect for calling something a lie when something is a lie and Democrats could take a page from his book and not be afraid to call out lies and bullshit.

They always pussyfoot around these obvious lies and help keep them going.

No Joe, don’t run!

Headline from CBS News:

Biden’s brother says he “absolutely” has another presidential run in him

You’ve done enough Joe, feel free to stay home and watch re-runs, because you running would be a re-run.

Joe Biden running for President would be an Obama nostalgia trip and I don’t feel nostalgic about drone strikes, half assed Wall Street reform, and a box of band aids called Obamacare.

Doesn’t El Trump-o bring this treatment upon hisself?

From the Daily Beast here:

President Trump on Wednesday morning responded to an image of comedian Kathy Griffin holding a severed and bloody head that resembles Trump. “Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself,” he tweeted. “My children, especially my 11-year-old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!”

It is really quite something to watch the Trumpy veer from total shit talking strongman to sensitive dad.

Personally after all the pussy grabbing and the shit talking he’s open game as far as I’m concerned.

If Trump can’t respect my kids enough to stay in an already not that great Paris climate deal, why the fuck should I give a shit about his 11 year old son?

It’s a two way street motherfucker.  You can get some respect, asshole, but you might have to respect others and you seem quite allergic to that.

Uber shorts drivers by millions, it’s all a credible ‘mistake’

From Bloomberg here:

Uber Technologies Inc. said it underpaid its New York City drivers by improperly calculating the company’s share of passenger fares, and will pay out an average of $900 per driver in restitution, costing tens of millions of dollars.

The back pay could run at least $45 million, based on the approximately 50,000 drivers the Independent Drivers Guild says work in New York City.

The ride-hailing company has previously misled drivers about how much they could make and miscalculated fares.

What we know about Uber is that the company operates at the highest ethical levels so if they shorted drivers by almost $50 million it must be some innocent mistake.

The head of Uber, Mr. Trevor Kalanick (pronounced Colonic, as in warm water flushed up your ass) has created an enviable corporate culture at his fantastic company.

Uber is the best and they never fuck anybody over.
