Trump fights a taint team while Comey declares him “morally unfit”

Trump continues to be flummoxed by having to actually be president, what with the taint of Biglygate and the need to actually defend the nation from “enemies foreign and domestic”.

Darn those domestics, why can’t they afford birth control.

Desperation continues as Mueller closes in as a new wall is attempted, only this time a ‘Chinese’ one, because 45* is always about the appearance of fairness and justice. The irony is of course the plethora of conflicts of interests in the 45* administration. And the Chinese, unlike the Mexicans paid for their Wall.

Chinese walls are used in law firms when one part of the firm representing a party on a deal or litigation is separated from another part of the firm with contrary interests or with confidential information from an adverse party. www.google.com/…

Because we know Agent Orange is all about the taint.

The cover-up continues 

And then there’s the ABC-TV interview with James Comey

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: So the FBI is investigating Russian interference in our campaign, and whether or not any individuals associated with President Trump are cooperating with that interference. What are you thinking then? As you see President Trump invite the Russians to release Hillary Clinton’s emails, as you see him refuse to criticize Vladimir Putin?

JAMES COMEY: I’m thinking the questions that we’re asking ourselves, which is, is anybody– is the Trump campaign in any way working directly with the Russians? Is there– because the– the fact that the president is calling for the release of the emails could cut both ways.

You could argue it’s an indication that they don’t have a secret channel with the Russians, or you could argue it means they’re in bed with the Russians and there must be connections that we can find. And so it was obviously of interest to us, but we already had the investigation underway.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: And the refusal to criticize Vladimir Putin?

JAMES COMEY: I don’t know what’s behind that. I mean, that’s– that mystified me even after President Trump became president ’cause I discovered that he wouldn’t criticize him even in private, which– I can understand a president making a geopolitical decision that, “I ought not to criticize an adversary country’s leader for some reason publicly.” But I discovered President Trump wouldn’t even do it privately, and I don’t know why that is.

COMPLETE INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPT


GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: You write that President Trump is unethical, untethered to the truth. Is Donald Trump unfit to be president?

JAMES COMEY: Yes … I don’t think he’s medically unfit to be president. I think he’s morally unfit to be president.

Q: “You first were briefed on the Steele dossier in August of 2015. What did you make of it?”

Comey: “That it, at its core, was consistent with the other information we’d gathered during the intelligence investigation.”

“It was all about PR,” how to spin the story to minimize Russia’s role so it wouldn’t take away from Trump’s victory.

Comey: “Our president must embody respect and adhere to the values that are at the core of this country. The most important being truth. This president is not able to do that. He is morally unfit to be president.”

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: You write that President Trump is unethical, untethered to the truth. Is Donald Trump unfit to be president?

JAMES COMEY: Yes. But not in the way m– I often hear people talk about it. I don’t buy this stuff about him being mentally incompetent or early stages of dementia. He strikes me as a person of above average intelligence who’s tracking conversations and knows what’s going on. I don’t think he’s medically unfit to be president. I think he’s morally unfit to be president.

A person who sees moral equivalence in Charlottesville, who talks about and treats women like they’re pieces of meat, who lies constantly about matters big and small and insists the American people believe it, that person’s not fit to be president of the United States, on moral grounds. And that’s not a policy statement. Again, I don’t care what your views are on guns or immigration or taxes.

There’s something more important than that that should unite all of us, and that is our president must embody respect and adhere to the values that are at the core of this country. The most important being truth. This president is not able to do that. He is morally unfit to be president.

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.
