Next up from Trump: “I never said I did not collude with the Russians, I said it was not a crime!”

Wait, what?
Must have been a momentary lapse into sanity or something…

Pretty sure that bill says in the absence of a statistical expert a senior official may fill the role of the “evidence based” expert.

Didn’t pay entire amount? Quelle surprise!

Nothing says “professional” like your personal fixer paying only half of a bribe with a Wal-Mart bag of cash and a boxing glove they bought off of eBay.

The reality tv show administration nightmare continues

Spoilers: the article is about the two minutes they had to talk to the Mooch where he openly compared the White House to the Big Brother show.

Oh, FFS. Grow a spine.

Ask yourselves what Gingrich, Hastert or Boehner would do, then effing do it. Censure Steve King and keep right on censuring hate-mongering conservatives until you reach the oval office, and then censure the ever-loving crap out of the petulant, dog-whistling whataboutist that’s usurped the resolute desk.

I never said it wasn’t a crime, I said kiss my orange ass! (we’re approaching the end of the narcissist’s prayer)

I’m not that sure. I’m very pro open data in theory but in practice I’m worried it ends up reinforcing neo-liberalism and discrimination.

Yeah, this is the worst. They wonder why people are looking at AOC as the future.

For real, though. I guess that they’re worried that a similar argument can be used to silence people who aren’t racists, but at some point you got a draw a line on what is and isn’t acceptable political rhetoric for a sitting congressperson.

Yes, it was delightfully profane in case you’re wondering

I actually think they are worried that it will be used to silence their own members who are racists, homophobes, misogynists, etc. Maybe they think that it will be twisted around and used to go after women who complained about men regarding metoo, or black people who complained about white racism. But I think they are living in a glass house, which is depressing.

If I thought they knew what they were doing, I’d think this entire discussion was staged as a way to promote Cardi B’s rant without actually linking to it (I think I can type “Cardi B shut down” into google myself, just like I did with snoop dogg). But I have no idea whether they think they were promoting it there or not.

Good point, probably so.

Maybe…

No doubt!

I guess they probably feel really burned over Franken. I think it was right that Franken left, but I also think the democratic party probably felt that loss pretty hard.

And at the same time the groper in chief gets to appoint Kavanaugh to the supreme court. If the rules were going to be the same for both parties and there was war of attrition, the democrats would surely come out better than the republicans. But they know that it will always be them cleaning house while the republicans don’t. Ultimately they should still clean house, but I imagine the leadership does a lot of short-term thinking about seat counts and optics, and not long-term thinking about justice.

I agree with that analysis… but I hope they realize that is was the short term thinking that got us in this quagmire that we’re in.

Trump has never, in any way, conveyed an interest in promoting recovery in Puerto Rico. What we learned Thursday is that he’s actually done the opposite — he demonstrated a personal desire, grounded in ignorance or racism or both, in making sure that help did not arrive on the island. That’s a catastrophe for the people directly affected, who are US citizens, but also an incredibly scary precedent for the rest of us.

“You know that secret trip you were going on? Yeah, well now everybody else does too!! FU Nancy!!”

CNN’s take, of course… “It’s actually equally Nancy’s fault and she’s acting like a little baby with a Nintendo Switch!”
