Daily or Occasionally Gnuz

Well, the Election is over, the House belongs to the Democratic Party, and Trump feels like he’s had a great Triumph.

So here’s what’s in the Gnuz
Trump is about to sign an asylum ban
H/T Vox
SubHeadline – “The policy to limit asylum to people who cross at official ports of entry — teed up by a regulation published Thursday night — is Trump’s most legally dicey immigration move yet.”

Red Meat for the White Nationalist Fascist Party (henceforth referred to as the WNFP) rabids.

And,
Acting AG Whitaker Once Said Russian Election Interference Had Been ‘Proven False’
H/T TPM
Exactly why Trump appointed him.
Next up, Trump nominates the biggest asshole (other than himself) to the post, and knows the Senate won’t confirm, rinse and repeat, and Mueller is fired, the cover up continues unabated.

Finally,
Sarah Sanders promotes an altered video of CNN reporter, sparking allegations of visual propaganda
H/T WaPo
Well, we know they have no shame, pushing a doctored video as some kind of evidence that the ‘enemy lurks’

Open Thread, pick it up and run with it!

  1. It is worth noting that Whitaker’s appointment is unconstitutional/illegal. As a principle official — that is one whose immediate boss is the president himself — such a position can ONLY be filled by someone who has been approved by the Senate (that is, has gone before he Senate, been vetted by committee, and voted on by the full Senate). As I understand it, it is not necessary that the appointee have been vetted and approved for the vacant office per se, just that they’ve gone before the Senate and been confirmed. In addition, since Sessions was fired, Trump cannot appeal to the Presidential Vacancy Act to make a temporary appointment of Whitaker.

  2. Funny how Trump whines about mobs of Democrats, but it’s mobs of Republicans outside the Broward County Elections Office incoherently ranting as the votes are being legally counted inside.

  3. Fox News’ Jesse Watters Says Jim Acosta Is Acting Like ‘The Rosa Parks Of The Press Corps’

    Fox News host Jesse Watters laid into CNN’s Jim Acosta for the inflammatory incident that took place Wednesday during a press conference with President Donald Trump. On his “Watters’ World” show Saturday, Watters said Acosta is trying to be “the Rosa Parks” of journalism, invoking the African-American civil rights activist who in 1955 famously refused to give up her bus seat to a white man.

    Uh, Jess old bean, comparing Acosta to Rosa Parks is a compliment, but I know you think it wasn’t. Rosa Parks wasn’t trying to become a civil rights icon when she wouldn’t give up her seat, she was just tired. Acosta was probably just tired of Trump being a dick, so it does have some similarity.

  4. I’m off work today for my first paid holiday for Veterans Day ever. Last year I was a contractor and got the day off, but didn’t get the paid holiday. Of all the companies I have worked for, none have had Veterans Day as a paid holiday.

    • I worked on Monday, the only Veteran in my group.
      My kids got the day off school, teased me mercilessly when I got home.
      Still, not a bad day to be alive (still).
