MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski apologizes for ‘crass and offensive’ remark – NBC news

I’m with Bill Maher here. Enough is enough snowflakes! Why don’t commentators on the right ever apologize for the lies that they spew.

Mika Brzezinski called it like it is. You ignore the death of add American residents, a man who wrote for one of the nation’s leading newspapers, a man who wrote an English so that we can understand, then you are exactly what she said the buttboy of a wannabe dictator secretary pompeo.

Obama World lovefest for O’Rourke is growing – TheHill

if the Democrats are going to win the White House in 2020 they must be pragmatic. I think that Beto O’Rourke would fit the mold for a lot of those people who would be uncomfortable, maybe because of their racism, with a person of color at the top of the ticket. I would love to see Carmela Harris as president but I fear that she would polarize the right into Ville coming out in voting and Rose. I believe the right learned our lesson with President Obama and have now mobilized as a feverish voting Bloc. They don’t seem to have Trump fatigue, which baffles me. So yes, a young man, a Kennedy like like figure would be a great choice.

Very unscientific polls of Democrats on Twitter have him in the lead, they don’t work checks a lot of boxes for voters. He’s fully bilingual, he is an amazing speaker and most importantly he makes you feel good when you hear him. And he also tells the truth which would be such a refreshing difference from what we have right now in the White House.

During 2004 Democratic Convention I had some friends over watching the keynote speech by then Senator Obama. After we finished I said he’s going to be our president and everyone in the room started chuckling and told me I was delusional. For some reason, I get the same feeling from Beto O’Rourke.

A banner year for LGBT candidates got even stronger with Kyrsten Sinema’s Senate win – The Washington Post

There are a lot of great organizations out there but there’s one that stands out to me in the LGBT political community. It’s the victory fund. The victory fund rooms people for public office. It’s not just a matter of wanting to run its knowing how to run for public office that’s a key to getting elected. I have a funny story about the victory fund. When I was living in Miami I was the chair of a fundraiser for the victory funds. They’re director of the elephant who was their first was a young guy and he put out 1000 posters on South Beach saying that named Alien Berrebi instead of Alain Berrebi. My friends left about that for months afterwards. But it was a great fundraiser and I hoped that I helped in a little way back then.

It’s wonderful to see the progress that the lgbtq community has had and I look forward to even more representation.

Trump threatens to pull federal funding for California wildfires – ABC News

I rarely agree with the Tangerine nightmare in the White House but today I do. He’s right we need to do something about climate change.obviously these fires are caused by this phenomena and I am so happy to hear that he wants to do something about it.

Oh wait, no he’s not. The republicans in Congress have a saying, it’s ABC, anybody but California. The state that produces the most tax revenue for the federal government is ostracized by Republicans because we don’t vote for them in great numbers.

Taxation without representation that’s where California now stands.

How come he doesn’t talk about pulling funds from Florida or Texas when they have hurricanes? oh that’s because they vote for him or he hopes they will. What a piece of trash we have in this White House.

Nothing about the dead and injured because of this project fire from the White House. What a piece of trash we have in this White House.

White House officials discussing potential replacements for FEMA chief: report – TheHill

what is it with Republican presidents and their choices for FEMA chief ? You remember Katrina and George Bush saying that Brownie did a great job. A great job that cost almost 2,000 people to lose their lives. Now we have Puerto Rico and Maria with eerily the same amount of people that died in 911, 2975. And by the way don’t believe the White House, they lie all the time, this was done by an independent organization that has no political affiliations.

why are they diverting funds from FEMA when we’re having terrible hurricane season to go to ice so that they can arrest more immigrants trying to save their families? This is Despicable and I am so tired of this continuous barage from this White House of Lies, they don’t know how to tell the truth anymore.

‘Winter is coming’: Allies fear Trump isn’t prepared for gathering legal storm – The Washington Post

For those of us who watch the Game of Thrones we know what winter is coming means. Although in the White House case it’s not going to be white walkers but it’s going to be Democrats crawling all over this white house and finding out all of those crimes that have been committed during his presidency. Look I’m the first to admit I thought that Trump did not have a chance against Hillary Clinton, and yet here we are. So this blue wave that is supposed to go across the country electing Democrats to the house and set it seems wonderful but until November 7th I won’t be pleased. We need to volunteer, donate to candidates and most importantly make sure we and all our friends go out and vote on November 6th.

MSNBC’s Ali Velshi wishes for ‘English to English’ translation after Trump’s incoherent Mexico trade deal presser

Finally, somebody verbalized what I have been thinking forever. We need a translator whenever this man start stalking if you want to call it that.

Donald Trump and his incompetent White House cannot do anything correctly. I’m not sure if it was a trait being played on Trump by the outgoing president of Mexico or if it was in confidence, either way it’s sad. Sad…

Supreme Court rules narrowly for baker who refused to make cake for same-sex couple – LA Times

This ruling is not the end of the world for Gay and Lesbian rights in our country. I don’t believe it’s a good ruling but it is now the law of the land.

Here is what is important, telling your boss in Most states in this country that you are going to get married to someone of the same sex opens you to being fired for no calls. There are no protections for the lgbtq community regarding employment.

When I tell people this they say oh no that can’t be right there is always been protections for everyone and when I explain to them that there are no National protections for the lgbtq community they do not believe me. But in fact it’s the truth and until we have laws protecting us from this form of discrimination we are still not in any way shape or form equal to everyone else.

Robert Mueller May Have Found That Witch That Trump Claims He’s Hunting For – Huffington Post

Our president must have listened to a lot of fairy tales when he was a little kid because he keeps screaming Witch Hunt. Each time he yells no collusion 3 times I think he thinks the witch is going to go away. The witch is him and he needs to look at the mirror and see that he has done it reprobate harm to our country and to the fabric of our nation. His moral values are trickling down to corporations, organizations and even universities. It’s on Hannibal to have a man so corrupt in the Oval Office.

In the picture he looks the happiest he’s ever been because he’s meeting his boss and is trying to make a good impression

Donald Trump Jr. and wife headed for divorce, friends say – Page Six

Is it me, or do all Trump wives look like they are about to film a hostage video when they take a picture!

I wonder where they put the expiration date on their wives. Or is it something that they put in some Secret drawer in a secret room in their gold plated homes? I have a feeling that Trump Jr thinks he may be the son of a superhero like maybe Batman, and I’m sure that Eric actually believes it.
