    This asshole is finally going

    • lililam says:

      After watching the tape, which was sickeningly hilarious, i couldn’t believe how stupid this guy was. He was punked big time. Maybe Cohen can visit Trump next.

    Another part of Maddow last night:

    Found this on Facebook

    • NW Luna says:

      Jesus the liberal street preacher would not be pleased.

      • RonStill4Hills says:

        Jesus was a community organizer.😊

      • RonStill4Hills says:

        And I seem to remember something about a Sermon on the Mount not a Sermon on the Escallator at the Christ Tower, Nazareth.

        Was there a secret verse somewhere that says, “Let he who is what sin cast the first stone, and have Cohen he Publican pay that lying floozy 130,000 shekels to keep her mouth shut!”

        The guys who did that to his car must seriously hate Jesus, I swear!

  6. NW Luna says:

    Great cartoon roundup. So much to make bitingly satirical fun of.

    And of course, here’s more fodder for the cartoonists.

    Trump pushes 25 percent auto tariff as top advisers scramble to stop him

    Trump wants to move forward despite numerous warnings from GOP leaders and business executives who have argued that such a move could damage the economy and lead to political mutiny.

    But Trump has become increasingly defiant in his trade strategy, following his own instincts and intuition and eschewing advice from his inner circle. He has told advisers and Republicans to simply trust his business acumen….

    “business acumen”

    Federal judge allows emoluments case against Trump to proceed

    A federal judge on Wednesday rejected President Trump’s latest effort to stop a lawsuit that alleges Trump is violating the Constitution by continuing to do business with foreign governments.

    The ruling, from U.S. District Judge Peter J. Messitte in Greenbelt, Md., will allow the plaintiffs in the case — the attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia — to proceed with their case, which says Trump has violated the Constitution’s little-used emoluments clause.

    The plaintiffs now want to interview Trump Organization employees and search company records to determine which foreign countries have spent money at Trump’s hotel in downtown Washington.

    There are going to be a number of interesting trials to watch shortly. That’s for sure! Love the prayer breakfast elephant with the smoochies!

    I don’t know if you all remember about the shitass SOS Kemp and his connections with kislyak… I wrote about months ago.

    • NW Luna says:

      Well, isn’t this interesting:

      Kemp has been contemptuous of efforts by the D.H.S. to shore up election systems nationally.

    • Enheduanna says:

      I remember. I drive past that Kennesaw State campus frequently. Always thinking to myself – why in the ever-loving hell would they give Kislyak a VIP tour of the voting machines facility? GOPers have had to be conspiring on elections for a long time now.

      And now this POS Kemp is running for governor. And he’ll get it one way or another.

    The Disturbing Evolution Of ‘Lock Her Up’

    But as I listened Tuesday to the bellowing of those mostly male teenagers, something finally clicked in my mind: “Lock her up” isn’t really a political rallying cry. It’s an attempt to criminalize female ambition and autonomy.

    As a cultural mantra, “Lock her up” has become entirely unmoored from any specific conspiracy about Clinton. At this point, it’s more like a Pavlovian response, generated by citizens whose political views and behaviors are driven not by any coherent ideology, but by a reflexive hostility toward all women.

    In this sense, the pronoun “her” was never just about Clinton. She was merely a convenient scapegoat for any woman who refused to accept the patriarchal yoke, who dared to call her male opponent a credulous puppet, who decried his sexual predation, who refused to accept his laughable excuse that bragging about sexually assaulting women was “locker room talk.”

    I can hear now much more clearly, in this despotic chant, the desire to create a culture in which men have legal dominion over women and girls.

    Sometimes this desire is overt. Women and girl migrants who come to America fleeing danger? Lock them up. Women who want to exercise their reproductive rights? Lock them up. Woman who dare to speak about sexual harassment and abuse? Well, if we can’t lock them up, we can at least shut them up.
