Finally. FFS. It’s Friday.
It’s Time. It’s TIME. IT’S TIME. FOR THE NEWS DUMP!
PAUL RYAN ROASTS DONALD TRUMP AT CHARITY EVENT
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.
BUT HE IS STILL LOSING FRIENDS
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.
OBAMA CALLED OUT TRUMP AND HIS POLICIES
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.
JOHN KELLY AND THE REPRESENTATIVE
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.
Here’s a list of 4 Star Generals Trump has criticized. There is a tweet for everything.
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.

TRUMP MOB TIES WITH FAT TONY. NO, NOT THE CHARACTER FROM THE SIMPSONS
Supposedly, Fat Tony helped speed up construction of Trump Tower by keeping the unions in check.
WHITE HOUSE EXECUTIVE ORDER ALLOWS FOR QUICK RECALL OF VETERAN OFFICERS TO ACTIVE DUTY
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.
AIR FORCE RECALLING 1,000 PILOTS
This is scary. Hopefully this is all the above EO is used for, and not a useless war.
HOW IN THE CRYSTAL PEPSI FLAVORED FUCK DOES IVANKA HAVE A SECURITY CLEARANCE?
Seriously. How Treason Barbie have a clearance?
That’s what happens when a pardon is accepted. The conviction stays on the books.
HYPOCRISY METER IS BORKED. PERSONAL EMAIL USE IS OK NOW, PER TRUMP WHITE HOUSE
I … I … I can’t even.

JEFF SESSIONS IS NEGLIGENT ABOUT RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE IN NEXT YEARS ELECTION
He has nothing planned for 2018.
THERE ARE MULTIPLE TROLL FACTORIES
Tip of the large collection of frozen water floating in the ocean.
TWITTER GIVES CONGRESS BARELY INFORMATION AT ALL
Either they don’t know how much shit they’re in, or they don’t care.
PAPADOPOULOS TRIED SETTING UP MEETINGS WITH TRUMP AND RUSSIA AS EARLY AS MARCH
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.
@JACK RETWEETED RUSSIAN PROPAGANDA
Holy Fucking Shit, Twitter. Really?
POLAND FIGHTING BACK AGAINST RUSSIA
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.

Jesus Fucking Tapdancing Christ.
That’s it for today. I’ll do something this weekend. Not sure what yet.
