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.

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?

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.

One point..

My liberal friends are disappointed that Republicans narrowly confirmed the incompetent billionaire Amway (no, really) heiress Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education in what appears to be an appalling and obvious example of cronyism. I don’t blame them, but look: You can tweet, call, email, tap dance all you like, but if you want elected officials to not behave like Republicans, then you should vote for and contribute to the campaigns of Democrats. Lobbying the cannibals sprinkling paprika over you to give tofu a chance is not the most effective strategy.
 
Democrats let Marco Rubio — who showed up at work every once in a while when not having dollars stuffed into his speedos — win re-election in a Senate race the DNC mostly ignored. How does a political party let a guy who lost his own state’s presidential primary to Trump and then later endorsed Trump after describing him as a “madman” and “con artist” beat their candidate? Rubio isn’t McCain. It’s not like he had some honorable record and history in Florida that you couldn’t overcome if you at least tried.
 
They also let Toomey and Johnson win in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, states that Democrats used to win nationally. Toomey’s narrow victory was especially galling. McGinty was polling ahead of Toomey for weeks prior to the election and then lost by a little more than a percentage point.
 
This is why I will slap upside the head the next person who talks to me about Hillary Clinton winning the goddamn popular vote or Trump not having a “mandate.” It doesn’t matter. What matters is that if she’d carried Florida, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, it’s possible the Democrats could have taken the Senate. And if you can get two ignoramuses, a Russian stooge, and a white supremacist confirmed in the Senate, that seems pretty “mandate-like.”
But for those of you who stayed home because Hillary didn’t “inspire” you enough, just consider that one percentage point in Pennsylvania is why Betty DeVos is set to dismantle public education as we knew it.

Fake Views…

59 percent of Trump supporters also agree that the second image is an actual current photo of the president. (The dishonest media likes to take shots of him from unflattering angles.)

Rigging the Vote…

During a meeting with congressional leaders who, if actually honorable people, have the obligation to immediately remove him from office for obvious signs of insanity, Donald Trump repeated the lie that “millions” of people “voted illegally” in the election… the one he won.

I know many Sanders supporters believed Hillary Clinton “rigged” the Democratic primary, but she actually won that race. I’m not sure what’s the point of perpetuating wide-scale voter fraud that results in the tearful concession of your candidacy to a known madman you’re certain will destroy everything you’ve spent your life fighting for. But, hey, who knows how women’s minds work, right? Up top!

Or, maybe, like Catwoman on the 1960s BATMAN series, she just hired really dumb goons.

GOON: So, uh, Mrs. C, we totally rigged that election for ya real good, like, with all those illegal votes in California.

CLINTON: Wait… you rigged California? But I was always going to win California.

GOON: Yeah, but now you’ll easily win the popular vote by, like, four million votes or some such.

CLINTON: You do understand that the popular vote doesn’t affect the outcome of the presidential election, which according to Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution is determined by the Electoral College.

GOON: Uh, so what’s the purpose, Mrs. C?

CLINTON: Why can’t I get good help!
