Daily Gnuz

It’s Monday Morning (in case you were too hungover to know that), and here’s what’s in the Gnuz!

Trump: Congress wouldn’t ‘dare’ leave without ‘beautiful’ healthcare bill
h/t The Hill
Idiot. The Republican Senators with a wisp of decency, and those who are facing re-election aren’t going to vote for anything that could possibly be approved by the House Conference…Idiot.

And

Trump’s son and top advisers met with a Russian lawyer to try and get dirt on Hillary Clinton
h/t Vox
And here’s the first thread to start unraveling…Motive is everything. And Junior’s big mouth just provided the investigators intent…Congratulations on being as big an idiot as your father.

Finally,

Trump’s cyber tweets cause dismay, confusion
h/t Politico
More evidence that this prezidunce either has onset of Alzheimer’s, or possibly is so compulsive/obsessive that he is unable to function, or has
advisors who are desperately trying to keep him from tweeting conflicting and confusing blobs of crap, or all of the above. Your thoughts?

P.S. fatherbob posted this yesterday, much worth a reposting today. How Trump is passing the baton of world leadership to China and Russia.
BRUTAL: Australian Journalist Sums Up Trump’s G20 Visit In 2 Minutes h/t C&L

  1. Donald Trump is the equivalent of buying a president from Harbor Freight.
    He is not Snap-on quality.

    (Gear heads will understand this)

    • Nor Mac, Craftsman or Powercraft. I’m reminded of an incident involving tools when I worked as a refrigeration serviceman for Montgomery Ward & Co. When I went to my service truck on morning where it was parked in a locked compound with 24 hour guards, I discovered my truck had been broken in and my tool box was gone. My boss’s reaction was to ask me if my personal auto insurance would cover the cost of replacing my tools. After I got over my laugh and explained their truck on their property with guards makes them responsible my boss took me to the retail floor tool section when I picked out new wrenches, screwdrivers, nut drivers, and a 1/2″ socket set with extra flex ratchet and extensions. I still have the 24″ extension from back then in 1969.

  2. Interesting announcement from chinLessMitchy:
    Top Senate Republican to unveil revised healthcare plan
    With a vote scheduled to occur next week.
    “We’re going to do healthcare next week,” McConnell told reporters. He may be using the verb ‘do’ as in carnal knowledge type of ‘do’…
    Let’s see how many Republic Senators show up with their arm/shoulder in cast/sling…
    And after this fails, move on to more stuff they can’t pass, like Tax Reform, and General Screwing of the Masses.

  3. At Crooks and Liars, they actually have a post that says a majority of Republicans think colleges are bad for the country.

  4. Steve King says Donald Trump’s border wall could be funded if we cut food stamps to pay for it

    I’m not from Iowa, of course, but am guessing Steve King must be a Republican, right? I mean, who else wants to disembowel the needy in order to pay for stupid stuff?

    I have a better idea on how to pay for that border wall (since Mexico has decided not to). I suggest that all Republican elected Congress people NOT be paid one red cent for their congressional “service” (including health insurance, of course) until the entire of the border wall is completely paid for, plus a set-aside bank account of, say, $20 billion? to pay for maintenance through the foreseeable future is on deposit somewhere. Also, every time anything to do with the border wall fails in any way, all congressional Republicans have to work for free till the problem is paid for and resolved.

    I’m betting that if the above prop. be placed on a public ballot, the support would be astronomical.

    Anyone got a better idea (other than scrapping the damn wall totally and completely, of course)?

  5. Since cameras aren’t being allowed at White House press briefings, I’d like to see one of the news services ‘create’ their own using the real audio with actors satirizing the acting press secretary until the cameras are allowed again. It’s just a few more weeks until SNL comes back live again.

  6. Natalia Veselnitskaya. I figured she was a Russki version of Kelly Anne Conway. Nyet! She’s more honey trap than attorney, even if she is a good attorney.

  7. Remembering the ‘Cornhusker Kickback’ and the ‘Louisiana Purchase’ during negotiation for the ACA, just because a Republican Senator announces they are a ‘no’ doesn’t mean they don’t have a price.

  8. Republican Party has ‘flat out lost its mind’

    A party that once provided a sober conservative counterweight to the Democrats’ more liberal impulses has flat out lost its mind, given itself over to rage, fear, schoolyard taunts and bizarre conspiracy theories. Which leaves me impatient with those who frame our political divide as if the issue were that left and right had equally abandoned the center. No fair observer can believe that.

    To the contrary, it becomes more obvious every day that we are where we are because something is very wrong with the GOP. To not acknowledge and report that, apparently out of some misguided notion that doing so wouldn’t be “fair and balanced” is, in itself, deeply unfair and unbalanced. In our terror of being called biased, we in media have neutered ourselves, abandoned our watchdog function.
