Daily Gnuz

Here’s a sampling of the fecal-storms that buffet us today:

It’s 6 months into Trump’s presidency. He’s already asking about pardons for his aides. …And his family members and … himself, according to a new report.

Circling the wagons, …and the drain.

And

Protecting our children from climate change might take more than just cutting emissions
h/t Raw Story
The longer we wait, the bigger the bullet we must bite in the quest to bequeath a livable planet to our progeny.

Finally, this just about sums up the last six effing months of stupidity and cowardliness

Donald Trump’s six-month report card: A paralyzed, scandal-plagued presidency — and it could get worse
h/t Salon
Worse doesn’t begin to describe the plunge we are about to take. Into the shit canister we go.

    • I foresee a great calamity befalling the Ken Ham scam in the not too distant future.
      Not a horrific flood but almost certainly a devastating fire.
      Brought on by god of course.
      And then an insurance claim because, did you see what god just did?

  2. Trump Is So Rich He Thinks Health Insurance Costs $12 Per Year

    “But what it does, Maggie, it means it gets tougher and tougher,” replied Trump. “As they get something, it gets tougher. Because politically, you can’t give it away. So pre-existing conditions are a tough deal. Because you are basically saying from the moment the insurance, you’re 21 years old, you start working and you’re paying $12 a year for insurance, and by the time you’re 70, you get a nice plan. Here’s something where you walk up and say, ‘I want my insurance.’ It’s a very tough deal, but it is something that we’re doing a good job of.”

    It’s unclear if Trump actually thinks a 21-year-old can get health insurance for $12 a year, but that’s what he said. It is possible the president meant to say “month” instead of “year.” As Vox points out, he said something similar in a May interview with The Economist: “Insurance is, you’re 20 years old, you just graduated from college, and you start paying $15 a month for the rest of your life and you really need it, you’re still paying the same amount and that’s really insurance.”

    This, of course, is still nowhere close to reality.

    We have a moron in charge. This story is on the Sunday shows.

    Sarah Huckabee did an incoherent rant about ‘Russia Fever’.
    Jay Sekulow uttered the word conflict or conflicts about forty seven times in a four minute span

  3. Anthony Scaramucci’s mafia nickname has GOT to be ‘Slimy Tony’.

    • Slimy Tony tried to convince Jake Tapper that Trump is ‘super-focused’ on his agenda. Then he listed off about six separate items that Trump is ‘super-focused’ on.

    • See also: Scaramouche

      Scaramuccia (literally “little skirmisher”), also known as Scaramouche or Scaramouch, is a stock clown character of the Italian commedia dell’arte. The role combined characteristics of the zanni (servant) and the Capitano (masked henchman). Usually attired in black Spanish dress and burlesquing a don, he was often beaten by Harlequin for his boasting and cowardice.

      Perfect summation of the entire Trump Administration.

    The Mooch and the Mogul

    President Trump has finally found a courtier who can give him the buttery, boundless respect he craves.

    A wealthy mini-me Manhattan bro with wolfy smile and slick coif who will say anything and flip any position. A self-promoter extraordinaire and master salesman who doesn’t mind pushing a bad product — and probably sees it as more fun.

    For ego gratification, Trump has struck gold — or Goldman Sachs — with his appointment of Wall Street hedge fund guy and cable TV diva Anthony Scaramucci as White House communications director.

    The Mogul and the Mooch is a tender love story with dramatic implications for the imploding White House.

    • Ready to lie or reverse a position, with a flick of the tweeter delete, Scarmoochie’s the smoochie for Trump.

  6. I see a little silhouetto of a man,
    Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?

    Sorry, I cannot get that out of my head. It’s just too damn accurate.
