G’day Maytes! Here’s the Gnuz for Froidaye

San Juan mayor hits back at Elaine Duke: ‘This is not a good news story. This is a people are dying story.’
H/T Politico
Shows you how completely removed from reality Drumpf and his minions find themselves. If they could, actually find anything that is..

And

Distrust of Senate grows within GOP
H/T The Hill
Yes, those few R-Sen folks who are realizing the damage the proposed legislation would do to their constituents should cause the rest of the R’s to question what they are doing. But not. And the next link from the hill is tangential to this.

Finally,

GOP, drop the partisanship if you want to fix health care
H/T Again, the Hill
Seems like only McCain is left in the group that recognizes that negotiation and compromise has value in the art of governance.

It be Thor’s day, and here’s the Gnuz(es)

What every American needs to know about Puerto Rico’s hurricane disaster
H/T Vox
U.S. Citizens, pretty much abandoned by their country. And der prezidunce fixated on how much money they owe? Six days in, he says “This is an island sitting in the middle of an ocean,” he said on Tuesday. “And it’s a big ocean; it’s a very big ocean. And we’re doing a really good job.” WTF>?
Eight days later most of the island with no power, water, food, etc. Today, he finally waives the restrictions to allow vessels to deliver aid.
Heckuva job Drumphy!

And

Cohn: ‘The wealthy are not getting a tax cut’
H/T Politico
And the elimination of the Estate Tax favors…Oh, yes. Only those making about a gazillion dollars a year…And taking the maximum rate from 39.something to 35%? Oh, yeah, well..we’ll take away some deductions…right
They haven’t posted the brackets yet…Then we’ll find out how screwed we are…

Finally,

LISTEN: Trump brags about turning away in disgust as elderly Mar-A-Lago guest laid bleeding on the floor

And

‘It’s God’s plan’: North Carolina church helped members commit unemployment fraud so they could keep tithing
H/T Raw Story
Good ole fashioned Xian Hypocrisy, on display at it’s shining finest.

Finally,

Last-ditch repeal bill appears dead
H/T The Hill
Once again, a small handful of ‘principled’ Republican Senators jam up the efforts of the majority party to screw the American people. Now they’ll just have to suffer with health care insurance for the next few years…pity.

Open Thread, enjoy one peace at a time.

It’s almost Friday, and herez the gnuz

Democrat on Trump pre-existing condition claims: ‘This is a lie’
H/T The Hill
Y’see, the states are going to do the taking away of the pre-existing condition requirement, so, in the Drumpfmind the bill doesn’t actually do that. Except what Senator Murphy is pointing out, that is exactly what is going to happen.

And

This report tells us why Trump is so afraid of Robert Mueller’s investigation
H/T Vox
Be afraid MrPrezidunce, be very afraid. Let’s see what happens when the micro-targeting of Russian bot election ads gets linked to Mr. Prezidunce.

Finally,

Trump hires campaign workers instead of farm experts at USDA
H/T Politico
Got Banana Republic? Cronyism? Deconstruction of the freaking regular, or even shallow state?

Open Thread, digest with appropriate levels of biotics…

H/T Politico
We’ve got to protect our phony-baloney jobs, gentlemen

And

The bait and switch at the heart of the new Obamacare repeal bill
H/T Vox
If this passes, and the House passes it, perhaps the rubes will finally wake up.

Finally,

H/T Salon
Yes, but he’s just entitled because.

It’s Mucking Fonday, and here’s the gnuz…

Trump lawyers battle over cooperating with Mueller’s probe: report
H/T The Hill
In bizzaroland today, the Administration lawyers are trying to figure out how to not cooperate with the investigation without closing down the investigation when the investigation is investigating and getting closer to exposing the corruption that is/was/will be Drumpf’s inner circle (takes a deep breath)

And

Senate GOP tries one last time to repeal Obamacare
H/T Politico
Only problem is, the House will never pass this Obamacare-lite legislation, but it will sure make the Senate feel like they’ve fellated the prezidunce.

Finally,

In First Words to UN, Trump Praises Trump Branded Condo Next Door
H/T TPM

Finally,

Yes, Bernie Sanders’s plan moves America closer to single-payer
