Hee-hee-hee. Not even an hour into being outed as one of three people on the planet lacking the sense to get out of the way of a speeding bus, and already Sean Hannity is losing his shit.

MSNBC just played a clip of Sean Hannity on his radio program, responding the the sudden mushroom cloud over his head due to his association with one august Michael Cohen. Hannity sounds unhinged in the best of circumstances, but if what he just said on the radio is anything representative, they may want to consider restraining him so that he doesn’t hurt himself, or anybody else.

Hannity started out trying to be sarcastic about the mainstream media making a mountain out of this Kilimanjaro. Hannity did not deny using Cohen’s legal services. Kinda. Sort of. Hannity admitted that he had occasionally spoken to Cohen on “legal issues.” But then he went off of the rails, you could almost “see” him pounding his fist on the table as he emphatically stated that he had never paid Cohen, had never received an invoice from Cohen, and had never consulted Cohen regarding any matter involving a “third party.”

OK, my Black Irish brain is confused here. The Manatee’s name only came out for one reason, the legal Maxwell Smart that is Michael Cohen named Hannity as a “client.” Yet Hannity insisted just moments ago that he had never received a bill from Cohen, nor had he ever paid Cohen for his services. Doesn’t the word “client” normally connote someone who is paying for services from someone else? Somebody here has to be lying. Either Cohen is full of shit, and Sean Hannity is not a client, or Sean Hannity is full of shit, and just doesn’t want to admit that he paid a legal lamprey like Cohen for as much as shining his shoes. The only alternative is that Cohen took Hannity on as a “charity case,” cuz like, rich white assholes need a break once in a while too.

The funny thing is, it’s perfectly obvious as to why Sean Hannity is doing this circus contortionist act to try to distance himself from Michael Cohen. After all, it’s not illegal to have a lawyer, I’ve had several myself at one time or another. But the problem is, what kind of a lawyer is he? Michael Cohen is not a corporate lawyer. He’s not a criminal defense lawyer. He’s not a real estate, personal injury, or estate planning lawyer either. So, what kind of law does he practice (and God, he needs all the practice he can get), and what legal expertise does he offer?

Well, if you listen to “Mikey the Mook” himself, he’s a self identified “fixer.” Yep, Michael Cohen is the Barney the Dinosaur version of Ray Donovan. But what kinds of problems? Cohen’s one consistent cash cow, Donald Trump used somebody else for his pre-nups. He used somebody else for his real estate deals. He used somebody else to defend him in the Trump U case, he has other lawyers for the Mueller investigation, as well as all of his other litigation, since there is no history of Cohen ever filing a motion on Trump’s behalf. So, what kind of legal assistance could Cohen have been providing to Hannity, whether paid or unpaid?

How did we become so intimately wise to the legal skills of Michael Cohen in the first place? He flubbed a matter so simple it should be taught in second year law school, a binding non disclosure agreement. What was one of the major bones of contention? Donald Trump never signed the agreement. Which was the real problem, if Trump had wanted to sign the agreement, he wouldn’t have had Cohen call him “David Dennison” in the NDA. I can call myself Bernie Madoff, but unless I change it in court, I’m still going to have to sign the securities fraud booking forms Joseph Murphy. Then we come to find that Cohen facilitated, apparently more quietly this time, a $1.6 million settlement for Elliott Broidy for getting an ex Playboy bunny in a family way. That’s pretty much it, Cohen’s entire public ouvre of excellence in the legal arena.

Little wonder that a married man like Sean Hannity, somebody with enough zeroes in his bank balance to choke Barry Manilow’s accountant, doesn’t want the dear wifey to hear that he has been “consulting” with the likes of Michael Cohen. For all we know, Michael
Cohen could be overseeing dozens of Trump ordered shell companies, laundering millions of rubles, but the only two words the world associates with the name Michael Cohen is Stormy Daniels. And now you can add the name Sean Hannity to that stellar roster.

We’ve known all along that El Presidente Pendejo has the reverse Midas touch, everything he touches turns to shit. Now it turns out that he has rather long coattails, because everythning Michael Cohen touches is starting to smell like a barn too…Mikey shoulda worn surgical gloves when he shook hands with Trump. This just keeps getting better and better.

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.
