“Paging Mr. Scott Walker…Scott Walker please pick up the white courtesy phone for a call from the President…” --Becasue there is nothing in this administration so bad that 45 can’t make it worse. Or maybe Kobach.

I’d be happier if I didn’t know it won’t get any better.


#5

Muller is next.


#7

Exactly. Someone who is not tied to Russia will be the replacement.


#8

Surprising hopefully nobody and expect Trump to do a Friday night massacre to get rid of the Investigation.

Meanwhile at the White House:

Elmer Woodard is waiting for his phone to ring.


#10

They know that Mueller’s train is coming down the tracks and that the real effort to derail it starts now.


#11

So begins what history will remember as “the afternoon of tiny hands.”


#12

People have been mentioning the idea that Kobach will be the next AG since he it became clear he was going to lose the election. I suspect so…


#13

Time to break out the rabbit ears.


#14

It’s like cleaning up a prohibited house party before the parents get home in January.


#15

I think Lindsey Graham has been angling for Session’s seat for awhile. His uncharacteristic and full throated support for Trump ever since John McCain died…


#16

TOS is entirely too cool to be compared with the Charlie Fox at the WH. But I love the GIF!


#17

If it wasn’t Trump I would agree, but with him I wouldn’t be surprised if he chooses Dana Rohrabacher.


#18

Hopefully it’ll suggest something of an end for Senor manos pequitos, like more along the lines of a “Twilight of Tiny Hands”


#19

This is the one in which the little elf on the shelf gives up his senate seat, sucks up to a mushroom to get said mushroom elected, lets president mushroom shit on him for two years and then gets kicked out of the briar patch. Classic Disney!


#20

I hear Kim Davis is looking for a job too…


#21

He didn’t even bother waiting for Friday now that he knows he can count on the Senate to stand with him no matter what.


#23

The upside to Kris Kobach being named AG is that he is so incompetent as a lawyer that judges ordered him to remedial classes to learn the law (maybe for the first time)

Sessions was competent, but an evil sack of crap. I doubt Trump can obtain even that level of ability from future minions.
