Trump to NRA: ‘Eight-year Assault’ on gun rights is over
What America needs now is more assholes in orange vests stumbling around the forest with AR-15s blasting anything that moves. And once in a while one of their psychotic children, who has gone undiagnosed as psychotic because their asshole parents are out in the forest blasting shit with their military assault rifle, takes his dad’s or mom’s gun to school and blows a bunch of people away.
After that mentally disturbed radio broadcasters will deny any of it ever happened and liberals are making all of it because they’re gay and want to take everybody’s assault rifle away.

Trump’s Wall May Not Stretch Entire Border, Secretary Kelly Says
That’s not a wall, it’s a funnel!
So the wall, much like the man himself, is kinda a piece of shit.
From CNBC here:
Facebook says some groups tried to use its platform to sway the outcome of the U.S. presidential election.
In a case study of the 2016 presidential election, the company said it found several instances of “information operations,” its term for governments and organizations who attempt to sway political opinion by spreading fake news and other nefarious tactics.
More proof that Facebook is not a platform where people get connected to make everybody feel better about the world and reach some pie in the sky understanding about people who are different from you.
Facebook is a toilet where people live stream murders and run propaganda operations, shitting fake news all over confused people who are too lazy to verify the info they’re munching on.
I think this completely justifies Mark Zuckerberg’s 5th largest in the world fortune — he has really taken us to a special place!!!
From Zero Hedge here:
..in what may be his first paid speaking arrangement, Obama will be paid $400,000 to speak at Cantor Fitzgerald’s healthcare conference this September, setting the benchmark for how much an hour of the former president’s time will cost going forward.
Continuing the fantastic Democratic neoliberal/Clinton invented having your cake and eat it too.
Yes you can be a defender of the little people while you get $400k for speaking to Wall Street trading houses!
They’re not buying access or favors — they do it for the fun!
Headline from the Daily Beast:
Sheryl Sandberg, feminist author and chief operating officer of Facebook, says the social-media giant doesn’t see itself as a publisher or an “arbiter of the truth.” The social-networking site has come under fire in recent months for not appropriately fighting “fake news” articles published on its pages. “We are really a platform and we take our responsibilities on false news very seriously.
So it’s looking like Facebook wants all the power and advertising of a publisher without any of the rules and responsibility.
Facebook makes money when people are on Facebook — that’s the deal. Get on Facebook, stay on Facebook, get all your info on Facebook, blah blah blah. And that’s how fake news works — start spreading shit on Facebook, reposting, passing it around, clicks, money, ads for people who want to access people who dig fake news! Boom!
The Trump campaign paid huge money to Facebook to run ads on Facebook looking for people who would eat fake news and vote for the Orange Fuckstick.
Ironically, the Lean In Queen has popped a little fake news of her own. It’s total crap Facebook is not a publisher.
From the Washington Post here:
A new Washington Post-ABC News poll confirms this — in spades. And, in fact, it shows more buyer’s remorse for Trump’s opponent in the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton. And were the 2016 election held again today, it shows Trump would avenge his popular-vote loss.
While just 4 percent of Trump’s supporters say they would back someone else if there was a redo of the election, fully 15 percent of Clinton supporters say they would ditch her.
Congratulations to the Democratic Party and to the Clintons for a plane well crashed!!!
From the Washington Post:
President Trump and his top aides pressed congressional Republicans to use the threat of a government shutdown to win funding for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, an effort that could lead to a standoff with lawmakers in both parties ahead of Friday’s deadline to pass a spending bill.
Team Trump is so desperate for a ‘win’ it doesn’t matter how stupid the idea. I thought the wall was in the toilet at the truck stop right next to the Muslim ban!
You can’t kill stupid I guess, you can’t even drown it in a toilet.
