It’s Tuesday, so here’z the TuesGnuz…

Trump Blames ‘Generals’ For Telling Him Obama Didn’t Call Family Members
H/T C&L
Always has to blame others for his failures and lies. So, is he lying as he blames others for his bullsh***ing?

And

Trump’s Latest Obamacare Attack Triggers Rate Hikes, Lawsuits, Confusion
H/T TPM
Not just raising rates, but forcing insurers out of the market, huge swaths of people to not be able to afford health insurance, and costing the gummint billions…preziduncial.

Finally,

The 4 steps Republicans have to take to pass tax reform
H/T Vox
Phase 1: before cutting taxes, Republicans need to pass a budget
Phase 2: overcome key policy disagreements
Phase 3: actually go through regular order — or so they say
Phase 4: get this bill through the Senate’s obscure budget rules — which is the really hard part

Let’s have a pool on which phase(s) the Republican’ts will fall on their faces. Perhaps giving HeWhoShouldNotBeNamed a __________ fill in the medical condition you prefer…

Open Thread, let’s try to get through the week with our sanity intact.

  1. Phase 5. Have massive colonoscopy with a note from the doctor that explicitly states that their heads are not up their asses.

    Ain’t gonna happen.

  2. Yesterday, C&L posted this little Trump definer:

    Trump Tries To Lie About Obama Not Calling Familes Of Our Fallen Soldiers

    Couldn’t resist making this brief comment:

    I do wish that more than a scant few in the media would point out and discuss the FACT that Trump’s sole motivation as POTUS is to DESTROY every single remaining shred of Obama’s gracious and humanity-oriented legacy, every shred that the GOP itself was unable to kill during those eight years. Reason? Obama’s a ni**er. Trump can’t stand or live with that horrid thought. His (racist) daddy taught him well.

    Impeach. NOW.

    A fellow added this:

    Charles Blow has an article in today’s NYT on the very subject:

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/15/opinion/columnists/trump-spite-obama-legacy.html?action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=opinion-c-col-left-region

    The article by Charles Blow is the best I’ve seen on that no-longer-subliminal issue anywhere, so far. Suggest EVERYone in the country read it.

  3. Here we go again, the Very Nice, Very, Very NICE prezidunce threatening Senator McCain
    Anybody think the multi term Senator with terminal brain cancer’s going to back off in the face of the Bully-In-Chief’s latest tantrum/tirade?

    • I lived in AZ when McCain first showed up on the Congressional ballot. I liked him, even voted for him. During Dubya’s tenure, McCain went backwards, no longer resembled the earlier version. He bottomed out with Sarah Palin. I’m pleased to see that in McCain’s waning years, he’s once again standing tall.

      Guarantee: if Trump decides to “fight back,” you can bet your ass “it won’t be pretty,” esp. if he fights back before McCain succumbs to his brain cancer. Trump will, at best, try to walk away while bloodied.

      I’d love to see it.

  4. ‘A Soulless Coward’: Coach Gregg Popovich Responds to Trump

    “I’ve been amazed and disappointed by so much of what this president had said, and his approach to running this country, which seems to be one of just a never ending divisiveness. But his comments today about those who have lost loved ones in times of war and his lies that previous presidents Obama and Bush never contacted their families are so beyond the pale, I almost don’t have the words.”

    At this point, Coach Pop paused, and I thought for a moment that perhaps he didn’t have the words and the conversation would end. Then he took a breath and said:

    This man in the Oval Office is a soulless coward who thinks that he can only become large by belittling others. This has of course been a common practice of his, but to do it in this manner—and to lie about how previous presidents responded to the deaths of soldiers—is as low as it gets. We have a pathological liar in the White House, unfit intellectually, emotionally, and psychologically to hold this office, and the whole world knows it, especially those around him every day. The people who work with this president should be ashamed, because they know better than anyone just how unfit he is, and yet they choose to do nothing about it. This is their shame most of all.”

    • Trump has clearly lived his entire life as a ‘soulless coward’ — e.g. Bully. I’ve known my share of bullies in my 75 years, but never did run across one as totally and lifelong-soulless as Trump. He redefines the word(s) bully, asshole, buttcake, POTUS (Piece Of Totally Useless Shit), etc.
