Weekendish Gnuz

Tis the weekend, and here’s the GNUZ!

P.S. On vacation for a week starting Sunday, hope to read y’all when I get back.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders: VA Restaurant Kicked Me Out ‘Because I Work For POTUS’
H/T TPM
I’m pretty sure they had their RUC Lying-Bastard-o-Meter on, and turned up full blast.
With the Klaxons, bells, explosions and fou-gasse, the regulars probably insisted she leave them in peace.

And,
Chinese leaders ‘absolutely confused’ by Trump’s demands on trade
H/T Politico
Yes, well… As we all are confused about his mental state, childish rants, incomprehensible fog on every issue.
Welcome to the club, expect CHAOS.

Finally,
Senate left in limbo by Trump tweets, House delays
H/T The Hill
Hey! Better off in limbo, the rest of us are living through this HELL!

Open Thread, send the mutt out to pick it up and deliver it with your slippers!

  1. If the Pizzagate guy wasn’t in jail, would he be as motivated to break into one of these immigrant detention centers to save the children?

  2. The SCOTUS decision to uphold the President’s Muslim ban 3.0 apparently hinged on whether the Court believed Trump meant derogatory things he said about Muslims during his campaign. It turns out the Court doesn’t think he tells the truth any more than almost everybody else.

    • Okay.

      During the Nazi era, Martin Niemöller wrote the following:

      When the Nazis came for the communists,
      I remained silent;
      I was not a communist.

      When they locked up the social democrats,
      I remained silent;
      I was not a social democrat.

      When they came for the trade unionists,
      I did not speak out;
      I was not a trade unionist.

      When they came for the Jews,
      I remained silent;
      I wasn’t a Jew.

      When they came for me,
      there was no one left to speak out.

      Now that we’re in the Trumpist era, I borrowed from Niemöller, changed it a bit to reflect what we’re watching happen today:

      When the Trumpists came for the illegals,
      I remained silent;
      I wasn’t an illegal.

      When they came for Latino Immigrants,
      I remained silent;
      I was not a Latino immigrant.

      When cops killed Black people for no reason,
      I remained silent;
      I was not a Black person.

      When they came for the Muslims,
      I did not speak out;
      I was not a Muslim.

      When they came for me,
      there was no one left to speak out.

      Ba da bing.

  3. Big upset!
    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has upset twenty year incumbent Joe Crowley in Queens!
    Crowley was a possible contender for Speaker after Pelosi left. He was also a big Wall Street cash whore, so he was a Progressive target in a demographically changing district.

  4. According to reports, MSNBC has ended Hugh Hewitt’s Saturday morning show. I guess they realized nobody would turn to the network until he was off at 8:30.

  5. VVVVVVV—–THIS!—–VVVVVVV
