“Stupid is as stupid does.” Mick Mulvaney and other White House Morons.

For most of his career in congress, Mick Mulvaney was a typical Republican politician. Namely, he found himself a safe district full of fools that kept reelecting him, took oodles of campaign contributions from corporate shills, and kept his mouth shut and flew under the radar. But, since being names the director of the Office of Management and Budget at the White House, Mulvaney suddenly seems to keep finding himself in the media spotlight. And every time he does, he ends up looking dumber than the box all of those rocks come in.

Mulvaney’s latest assault on homo sapiens intelligence is his righteous indignation over the crude and insensitive remark of a White House comms shop staffer about the state of Senator John McCain’s health. The real problem with Mulvaney’s response isn’t just that he declines to admonish the staffer for her insensitivity, it’s that his reasoning is unhinged from reality.

Mick the Dick’s beef isn’t that the staffer wasn’t immediately dispatched to her desk with a cardboard box accompanied by security, it’s that we know about the comment at all. His contention is that because the remark took place in a staff meeting, it is somehow or other automatically sacrosanct, and should never have been exposed to the light of day. On its face, this is too fucking stupid to be considered rational thought.

Let’s just say that you work for the XYZ company as a staffer, and you’re in a staff meeting. In the meeting, someone mentions a manager who is in the hospital with pneumonia. Having the sense of humor of an orc, you lightheartedly quip, “Yeah, now I’m gonna have to buy a black dress, and I don’t even like the guy!” Does Mulvaney honestly believe that any number of people present who are offended by your remark aren’t going to have it discussed over every water cooler and at every lunch table before you can even get back to your desk? Hell, with the prevalence of cell phones and Twitter, you might have the company VP waiting outside the door for a little chat by the time the meeting breaks up. The thought that any kind of insulting or insensitive statement would remain “secret” in any kind or organized setting like that is ridiculous on the face of it.

But one nice thing about the nutty nabob who runs the WH comms shop, Blarah Flackabee Slanders, she’s not about to be upstaged by an amateurish little sod like Mulvaney. In another closed door meeting, this one about the original leaked xomment meeting, Slanders started off by saying, “I am sure that this conversation is going to leak too. And that’s just disgusting.” How do I know this? Because it leaked! Just as it was intended to. It would have been one thing if Slanders had led off with, “If what I say next goddamn leaks, I will make it my mission in life to draw and quarter whomever leaks it.” But when you lead off with “I already know that this is going to leak,” what you’re really saying is “OK world, here’s what I really think! Now, go ahead and leak that.”And if there’s one thing in this world that I hate more than abject stupidity, it’s idiot transparency. Nice going Slanders, you just made my shit list again.

Fortunately, both Mulvaney and Slanders have the Yoda of idiot philosophy to mentor them, Yada the Trump. Only a moron of true zen quality can stand with three Americans that just spent anywhere from one to three years being abused by a maniacal dictator, and then tell the world that said dictator “Was really excellent to these three incredible people.” That would be like me stealing your 55″ TV set, dropping it back on the steps in the middle of the night when I couldn’t resell the fuzzy POS, and then being hailed as a hero for “doing the right thing.” *SIGH*

And the hits just keep on coming. Now His Lowness is equating Kim with an almost Ghandi like humanity for saying that he will destroy his nuclear testing site before the June summit with the Orange Julius. This is what happens when your Presidential Daily Briefing comes with a box of Crayolas, and a Tommy Tippee full of diet coke. Everyday common riffraff like us discovered weeks ago through our own NSC daily briefing, namely CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, et al, that North Korea has already tested so many bombs under that mountain, that if they did it again, the entire thing would come crashing down on their dumb heads. There are even reports that some parts of the facility may have already been damaged by the mountain shifting, making it inoperable. And yet, Trumpelthinskin is praising Kim Dung Fun for razing something he can no longer get any use out of. Your tax dollars at work my fellow citizens.

So please, Blarah and Mick, I beg you. Make all of our lives easier, and take a little tip from the old Murfster here. When shit like this happens, and damage control is required? Please, just keep your stupid mouths shut, and leave cleaning up the mess to the pros. After all, that’s what your boss is paying Rudy Giuliani for, and look how well that’s working out! Relax kiddies, you’re in good hands.

Twitter Just Hit Trump’s Sore Spot By Reminding Him How Much We Love Obama

#ObamaDay is trending on Twitter in celebration of President Barack Obama’s fifty-seventh birthday today, and also trending is “Happy Birthday Mr. President.” A recent poll found that Americans find Obama to be the best President in their lifetime and that might explain Trump’s profound jealousy of Obama, a man who spent years trying to delegitimize our country’s first black president and to this day, the former reality show star can’t go a day without bringing up his predecessor. So naturally, Twitter being Twitter, Internet users are wishing the former president a happy birthday but in response to Trump’s tweets today and it’s pretty funny. Even Trump’s retweets are getting birthday wishes to Obama.

In 2014, the Obama White House sent out a tweet to wish former president George H.W’ Bush a happy birthday.

Happy birthday, President Obama.

P.S.: Come back. We need you.

Pro-Trump Doctor Launches Rant For Cops Treating Him Like A ‘F***ing Black Person’ During An Arrest

Pro-Trump Doctor Launches Rant For Cops Treating Him Like A ‘F***ing Black Person’ During An Arrest

 

An unruly pro-Trump passenger was arrested on Thursday morning at Orlando International Airport and the incident was caught on camera in which he expressed his displeasure at being treated like an African-American. Apparently, Dr. Jeffrey Epstein, a self-described ‘conservative Republican’ and ‘Trump guy’ thinks he shouldn’t be treated as roughly as the police sometimes treat black people, so he fought the law and the law won.

The police said they received a call regarding a disruptive passenger at the American Airlines ticket counter, according to WESH. As they arrived, Epstein started acting out, and yelled, the police said.

After calming down for a bit, Epstein grew angry upon finding out that he was being booted off the plane for his behavior so as not to disrupt the flight, so instead, he disrupted the airport.

“So this guy’s trying to provoke me,” Epstein yells while pointing at an officer. “He’s a law enforcement officer, and he’s trying to provoke me. Do you know how to de-escalate things, genius? No, you’re not. You’re talking about me foaming at the mouth. Is that going to de-escalate things, genius?”

In the arrest report, according to Law & Crime, the police asked him to leave for public safety reasons. An officer noted that he had “white froth” around his lips, and asked if “he was having an issue.”

“You want to test me?” Epstein can be heard saying on video. “You want me to count backwards?” At that point, Epstein puts his hands in the air, daring the police to arrest him, and that’s when they tried to handcuff him. After a struggle, the cops get the good doctor on the ground of the airport.

“Don’t beat me up,” he yells. “Look at them. Oh my god. I can’t believe they’re doing this. Oh my god. Look at what they’re doing.”

At some point during the struggle, Epstein is heard (again) complaining that the cops are being rough, and said they were treating him like a black person.

“You’re treating me like a f*cking black person!” he yells out. At some point, Epstein was pepper sprayed.

Watch:

Later, after his release, Epstein told WESH that “if you’re (cops) going to do this to a white doctor, who’s 59-years-old, for doing nothing, then why would black people trust you?.” That’s a good point, actually, and a surprising one from a Trump supporter since his president told the police last year that they should rough up individuals more during arrests. “Please, don’t be too nice,” Trump told the officers at the time. But, Jeffrey was acting like a man with white privilege who complained that he was treated just like a black person during an arrest.

“I’m a conservative Republican, I’m a Trump guy. But until the police fix this problem, I don’t blame black people for being upset when they get arrested,” he added.

He says that now. I’m wondering how he felt before he was arrested.

Jeffrey Epstein is charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, trespassing after a warning and disorderly conduct.

Top Republican Complains About Censorship After Forgetting How To Use Twitter

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has tweeted over 9,600 times since he opened a Twitter account in 2009 so he probably knows that there’s an area to adjust your ‘settings’ on the social site. On Friday, McCarthy took to Twitter to complain that conservatives are being censored and he even tagged Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to demand that he rectify the issue immediately and explain to Congress what is going on because he couldn’t see Laura Ingraham’s tweet. But, it wasn’t Twitter’s fault. It was McCarthy who had adjusted his settings to “Hide Sensitive Content” so it wasn’t the sneaky Deep State censoring conservatives on Twitter. For some reason, McCarthy kept the tweet up. “Another day, another example of conservatives being censored on social media,” the California Republican tweeted. “@jack easy fix: explain to Congress what is going on. #StopTheBias cc @IngrahamAngle”

Twitter users pointed out to McCarthy what he had done wrong but it doesn’t appear that he’s noticed.

Oh, and it’s not just McCarthy. Greta Van Susteren is having a hard time, too.

Well, bless their hearts.
