Keep Cashing that Check, Girl…

As Bannon joins Priebus, Scaramucci, Spicer, and Flynn in the White House dustbin, a reminder that my girl Omarosa is laying low and still cashing that paycheck.

Making Nice with Nazis…

“Oh my god, there are Nazis marching in the streets!”

“Well, don’t punch them!”

“OK, well, I’m going to publicly identify them!”

“Wait, that might endanger their lives!”

“Are you kidding me? We’re talking about flippin’ Nazis! Oh fine, I’ll privately contact their employers.”

“What? You would deprive a Nazi of their livelihood? Would you like someone to do that to you because you’re gay and were at a Pride parade! Or were black and talking to a Jewish person about fried chicken?”

“That is so completely not the same thing.”

“I am fine with minorities existing. Why can’t you tolerate Nazis?”

“OK, I think now you want me punch to *you*.”

Melania’s Stuff…

Dig the expression on Melania’s face during this meeting. She’s wondering, “Is he going to blow up the world? Isn’t all my stuff in the world?”

And you know Melania didn’t want to be at that meeting. Do you know what women like Melania do all day in New York? It does not involve meetings like this.

Anthony Scaramucci, RIP…

Ten or so days ago:

IVANKA: So, Dad, I know we’re getting killed out there with Russia… and, well, everything else related to running the country, but we think some exciting staffing changes sould turn things around.

TRUMP: Whattaya got in mind? Sexy broad? Sexier broad?

KUSHNER: No, the White House chain of command needs to go mouse (POINTS AT HIMSELF), cat (POINTS AT IVANKA)… mooch.

IVANKA: We in the administration want a Communications Director with attitude. He’s edgy. He’s in your face. You’ve heard the expression “Let’s get busy?” Well, this is communications director who gets biz-ay, consistently and thoroughly.

TRUMP: So, he’s proactive, huh?

IVANKA: Oh, God yes, we’re talking about a totally outrageous paradigm.

SPICER: Excuse me, but “proactive” and “paradigm”? Aren’t these just buzzwords that dumb people use to sound important? Not that I’m accusing you of anything like that… I’m fired, aren’t I?

 

Ten or so days later:

Battle Royale…

Trump’s Thursday morning tweets, in which he called the “Morning Joe” host “crazy” and claimed she was “bleeding badly from a face-lift” when she visited his Florida resort early this year, earned widespread condemnation throughout the day, including from several Republicans on Capitol Hill.

But Sanders argued that the president had every right to “hit back” at “the liberal media” and “Hollywood elites” when they criticize him — and deflected questions about whether the insults were beneath the presidency.

“I don’t think you can expect someone to be personally attacked day after day, minute by minute, and sit back,” Sanders said, arguing that the criticism the president and his aides endure is often personal in nature. “When the president gets hit, he’s going to hit back harder.”

Mika sure is a fearsome foe for the most powerful man in the world. I recall the Gerald Ford-Charo smackdown of the mid-70s that divided a nation.

High Finance…


If you make $500K a year, you could could give your friend a lift to the airport for $10 a something, declare that as Temporary Uber Driver income and qualify for the extra $4K in tax cuts. And if you do this if you’re just shy of $1 million, you’ve earned yourself the starting salary of a public school teacher.

Maybe this is why drivers put up with Uber.

Health Scare 2…

Health Scar 2

DOCTOR: “I’m flattered you’ve spent 40% of your income to see me, but maybe you want to consider reinvesting that money into, well, food and shelter? It might help with the malnutrition and frost bite. That’ll be a $200 co-pay for this visit. Now please don’t die outside my office. It’s just depressing.”
