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.

Poll: More Dems approve of McCain than Republicans after his death – TheHill

When I was a kid I used to read Superman comic books. Once in awhile Superman would end up in Bizarro world. Everything would be backwards. Does that sound familiar to what is happening today?

Senator McCain may be remembered as the last of the bipartisans. I did not agree with him on everything but I knew that he listens and wanted to try to come to some arrangement. The republicans in Congress now have one goal, to feed that insatiable thirst for more money so they can get reelected. Freshman Congressman arriving or told by their party that they need to forget about writing bills and instead they need to worry about running for congress again. The average Congressman spends 6 hours a day calling for donations to the very rich. I may be going out on the tension here but Senator McCain makes me want to get up on top of a hill and scream that we need reform in our politics. First and foremost we need to get big money out of politics, it’s what has created the swamp and it’s turning our whole country into one.

‘Bikers for Trump’ founder says he sells Trump shirts made in Haiti because American-made products are too expensive – TheHill

While I was researching this post on bikers for Trump, I found a lot of references to bikers for Trump being Vigilantes at Trump rallies. This is very disturbing.

That being said, the hypocrisy of it all. These are people that claim they want make America great again but are not willing to pay wages, living wages to American workers. Yes, they are perfect has Trump supporters. Neider the president nor his daughter made any of their clothes in America. They’ve never answered to that because it would be very difficult to explain.

So from now on I will call Bikers For Trump Vigilantes for Trump.

Trump Jr. shares fake Trump approval rating on Instagram – TheHill

I was under the impression that the fake news maven, Donald Trump Junior, was off the grid. I guess he’s not off the grid enough to stop putting out false information. This one is really odd. President Trump has never had an approval rating over 50% from Gallup polls since he’s been in office. So why does Donald Trump Junior doctor an image to make it look like he’s at 50% ? These are facts and it’s hard to argue with facts although if you live in that bubble I guess not. Gallup is a right-leaning polling organization. Their numbers are always higher for republicans then from other organizations. On the other hand Quinnipiac polls or left-leaning polling organization and therefore their polls favor a more Progressive agenda. Why would Donald Trump jr. Fake information from one of its allies ? It seems that Samantha Bee calling him de Forrest Gump of White House scandals is very appropriate.

If Cohen is telling us the truth, Trump may end up like Flynn – TheHill

One time, and this one time only, I will agree with Rudy Giuliani about something. Michael Cohen is a liar. he is a liar that is trying his hardest to keep himself out of jail. What the good America’s mayor forgot to say was that a few weeks ago Giuliani himself said that Michael corn was a good man. A good man is not a liar or do I have my definitions mixed up?

I truly hope that the headline of this story is what happens in the end. But one thing that is never spoken about is the fact that Mike Pence, yes mr. Clean cut vice president, was in charge of the transition. And as such he must have known about Flynn, the Russians, and all of the other Shenanigans going on in those horrendous months between the election and the inauguration of the 45th president. So who will take over from Trump if Mike Pence is also implicated? And that’s why we need to have Democratic house in November. Because next in line is the speaker of the house and not the Secretary of State as so many believe. And can you imagine a president Jim Jordan? Alright enough nightmares for today.

American hunter faces outrage after taking photo with killed giraffe – TheHill

I’m not special. I treat the Universe I live in the way I want to be treated. I bought a new car recently well it was 10 years old, and there was a living spider in the center console. It took me a full day to figure out how to get this spider out of my console alive and back into nature and not on the floor of a garage.

We have Donald ass Junior as our example about how we should treat endangered species. We should shoot them and take pictures with them. How much oh is that? Can you imagine how Brave he was in holding a shotgun with helpers from Africa around him making sure that he would be safe shooting the helpless animal and then taking a picture triumphantly holding up the poor animals tail. Now we have this woman who African authorities call a neanderthal, I resent that. That is attacking the address Halls she is not even good enough to be looked upon like the snake in the Garden of Eden proverbially. Her picture should be smeared everywhere and she should be ashamed and ostracized by her friends and family. I don’t care how rich she is she does not have the right to kill a giraffe. What did the giraffe do to her?

Sanders: Trump ‘didn’t lie’ when he tweeted he never supported immigration bill he urged Republicans to pass – TheHill

Let’s face it, since the founding of our country presidents have been politicians. Politicians will say a lot of things to get themselves elected even though they know that there is no way that these things can actually be implemented. That being said this president does not fall within the realm of other presidents and their use of untruths.

This President uses lies the same way he uses air to breathe. He’ll say one thing on Tuesday and then completely opposite thing on Wednesday and then I that he ever said what he said on Tuesday. I don’t think that he understands the concept of recordings. You would think someone who threw the years active as his own fake PR person would understand that when something is recorded it can’t be played back and therefore is not fake news. But we have a president who doesn’t seem to understand much of anything.

Trump on Memorial Day: Those who died for US ‘would be very happy’ with how country is doing – TheHill

Let’s get some semantics out of the way first. I checked this thoroughly and saying happy Memorial Day is inappropriate. It’s a day we’re families remember those who have died and it is not meant to be a happy holiday. To me being Jewish it’s like saying happy Yom Kippur, again inappropriate. All that being said the President of the United States should know that it is inappropriate to say happy Memorial Day. But then do we really have a President?

No let’s go on with this ridiculous tweet. I live in downtown Los Angeles and there are cranes all over the city building skyscraper after skyscraper. These were not built because of the so-called Trump economy. They were plans years ago and squarely should be part of the Obama economy. That being said, that Trump thinks that’s a good economy would make people who died for our country happy is weird. It’s like he’s not really a person, I don’t know anyone else who thinks this way. And I am so tired of him taking credit for President Obama’s hard work for 8 years. This economy is going to come crashing down upon this president sometime in October and then we shall see who he blamed for that.

Do those families remembering their fallen I truly want to express how sad I am for you and for your loss. America is the greatest country on Earth thanks to those who have fought for us over the course of the last 300 years.

McCain’s inner circle planning on having Pence, not Trump, at funeral: report – TheHill

First and foremost I want to remember John McCain as the American hero he was. Captured in Vietnam and held for five years. He was offered a quick release by his captors because his father was an admiral but he said until his Conrad’s who had been captured were released as well he would not leave. He was tortured, beaten and brought to the edge of death more than once. I remember the day he came off the plane to a hero’s welcome. His body may have been broken but his Spirit was not.

To me John McCain has been fun enigma. His autobiography is called maverick and yet one here and against President Obama in 2008 he was anything but. He brought Sarah Palin to the four front and I believe that that has had a profound affect on our politics. He picked her the way Trump pics his nominees without knowing them. She was a long person for the job and she made a trump presidency more acceptable. So it’ll way I do blame cetera McCain for Trump.

Since Trump has been in office McCain has been a thorn in his side but an important votes like the tax plan he went along with the terrible ideals of this presidency. A tax plan that Republicans are walking back now because 1.5 trillion dollars would have easily paid for college for every single American who wants to go. And there would have been lots more left over from that. Instead we gave the rich a tax break and they are never going to spend the money. And the middle class has got a whopping $15 every two weeks in their paycheck!

In the end I wonder if Trump will be attending John McCain’s funeral. I hope not, he is a stain on our country and its institutions and should not be honored.
