Finally. FFS. It’s Friday.
It’s Time. It’s TIME. IT’S TIME. FOR THE NEWS DUMP!
Speaker Paul Ryan was a guest of honor at the Al Smith charity dinner. Part of it is a comedy routine wear guests tell some jokes. Paul Ryan had more than a few jokes about Trump. Some of them were pretty funny.
Several GOP congressmen have already announced their retirements from the House for next year.
They sense a bloodbath coming for them. Anyone attached to Trump is a target next year.
I covered this a little yesterday, but here’s another article on Obama speaking about Trump, saying how he’s putting America back 50 years.
Add W to this as well.
This one isn’t just weird, it’s downright nuts.
Chief of Staff John Kelly is stuck trying to defend Trump’s Snafu with the soldiers killed in Niger. In doing so, Kelly picked a fight with Rep. Frederica Wilson, who was with Mrs. Johnson when Trump called her.
Kelly’s story was debunked in about 4 seconds, and Walleye Sanders said it’s not appropriate to criticize a 4 Star General. Then Trump called everyone liars, countering what he said.
The media is tearing Kelly a new one, but #TeamPatriot and others on Twitter is taking a different view on this.
They’re holding true to the idea that Kelly is doing whatever he has to do to keep Trump from doing something stupid. Ok, dangerously stupid which kills a lot of people. Kelly’s statement was carefully parsed out. It sounds bad, carries Trump’s talking points which keeps Trump happy, but doesn’t deny what Representative Wilson said.
Kelly is walking a fine line.
I’m withholding judgment, but I’ll give Louise and the crew the benefit of the doubt on this. They were right with Comey. McCain, and others.
What a fucking surprise.
Supposedly, Fat Tony helped speed up construction of Trump Tower by keeping the unions in check.
Shit. This is bad. This basically says that at the discretion of SecDef, officers can be brought back to active duty immediately, and in unlimited numbers. This was previously capped at 25 officers per year.
This is scary. Hopefully this is all the above EO is used for, and not a useless war.
Seriously. How Treason Barbie have a clearance?
That’s what happens when a pardon is accepted. The conviction stays on the books.
I … I … I can’t even.
RUSSIAN MACHINE NEVER BREAKS, FRIDAY EDITION
This was behind closed doors. Otherwise, I would have watched it on C-SPAN. Yes, I’m that big of a nerd.
He has nothing planned for 2018.

Either they don’t know how much shit they’re in, or they don’t care.
I’ve talked about this before, but with so many things, it slipped through the cracks. Members of the Trump campaign tried to work with the Russians at least as early as the Primaries.
Holy Fucking Shit, Twitter. Really?
Poland is fighting against Russia in cyberspace. The Poles don’t like or trust the Russians. They are getting ready for something. They saw what happened in Crimea, and don’t want that to happen to them.
22 stories. In one day.
Jesus Fucking Tapdancing Christ.
That’s it for today. I’ll do something this weekend. Not sure what yet.
