Cohen Says He’ll Plead Fifth In Stormy Daniels Suit Due To Criminal Probe
H/T TPM
Ok, lessee…He’s pleading the 5th in the civil case, because,….of the criminal probe. So he might say something in the civil trial that provides Meuller with the goods.
OK, got it. Maybe.

And,
Emmanuel Macron rebuked Trump before Congress. Democrats loved it.
On Tuesday, Macron was schmoozing with Trump. On Wednesday, he was getting a standing ovation from Democrats.
H/T Vox
How sweet it is…

Finally,
Carson wants poor to pay more rent, work for assistance
H/T Politico
Damned Poor folk anyhoo. Raise their rent, garnish their social security! How dare they be impoverished in the land of the free and the home of the grave?

For Tuesday, April 24thish

Trump’s false claims to Comey about Moscow stay could aid Mueller
James Comey says the president told him that he never spent the night in Moscow in 2013, but flight records, social media and his bodyguard’s testimony show otherwise.

H/T Politico
Looks like it’s time to haul the RUC-LyingBastardometer out of storage and crank it up again!!

And,
Police throw black woman to floor, say they will “break” her arm during arrest at Waffle House
H/T Vox
Not so sweeet home Alabama, where the ugly taint of overt racism is alive and well.

Finally,
Trump’s doctor accused of drinking on the job and ‘improperly’ prescribing medication
H/T Raw Story
What an amazing pack of miscreants and failed humans!
Howling Monkey Poo!

Read all about it! Whatever IT is, today, Friday April 20th 2018

Giuliani Joins Trump Legal Team
H/T TPM
It’s been 30 years since Giuliani has been a prosecutor. Trump just needed another has-been recognizable name to fill the empty seats in the Oval Orifice.

And,
US school shootings rise rapidly in two decades: study
H/T Raw Story
“In less than 18 years, we have already seen more deaths related to school shootings than in the whole 20th century,” said lead author Antonis Katsiyannis of Clemson University.
And guns are more available than ever…

Finally,
LGBT rights group takes aim at Pence as Trump woes deepen
Pence could increasingly find himself the target of liberal attacks in a midterm election year.

H/T Politico
Pence will be the harbinger of “The HandMaiden’s Tale” if he winds up in charge of this mess.

Open Thread, for FSM’s sake, do something with it!

Tuesday edition, here’s the GNUZ

‘Someone should say a prayer’ for Trump’s aides
H/T Politico
The president has decamped to Mar-a-Lago, where he’ll have plenty of time to dwell on a barrage of negative headlines.
We’ve reached a point where ‘governing’ has ceased. We have a spoiled brat in charge of the Executive Branch, who can’t focus on policy because his ego is too fragile.
Sad.

And,
Retired Admiral Says Trump Is Causing ‘Extreme Discomfort’ for Miltary Leaders and Harming Republic
The president is destabilizing the nation. Just like a Manchurian candidate.
H/T Alternet

Finally,
Trump just blocked his own administration’s Russia sanctions
Once again the president is taking steps to make sure he doesn’t anger Putin.

H/T Vox
Anyone else see a pattern here?

Open Thread, slam it and dunk it!

It’z Wednezday, and the Gnuz beith thus:

Cohen: FBI Was ‘Extremely Professional, Courteous And Respectful’ During Raids
White House: Trump ‘Certainly Believes He Has The Power’ To Fire Mueller
H/T TPM
Which one displays a cool demeanor under fire?
Which one is freaking out, barely under control?
Which one is acting like a President, which one like a Prezidunce?

And,
Trump wants to slash welfare with stricter work requirements
Trump calls on his Cabinet to propose stronger work requirements for welfare across the board.

H/T Vox
Reviving the ‘Welfare Queen’ myth, the racism of this Administration is boundless.

Finally,
‘Two-part scam’: Robert Reich explains how Big Pharma ‘gouges the public’ as Trump’s GOP ‘line their pockets’
H/T Raw STory
Ripping you off 24X7X365, Insurers, Pharamcy Benefit Management Companies and the Drug Manufacturers, driving cost into the Health Care system cause there’s profit to be make off us suckers.

Weekly Rap-Sheet!

Since I’ve pretty much sucked at getting a Daily Gnuz out, I’m gonna use the weekend to try a Weekly Rap-Sheet.
Be at ease, no actual Rapping is scheduled, although it may break out spontaneously at any time…

And here’s the Rap Sheet for this past week.

US calls on Russia to end support for Syria after alleged chemical attack
H/T The Hill
Please, Vlad, can you not be so obvious? You’re making me look bad, so I have to pretend to scold you. No hard feelings or leaked videos, right?

And,
Orbán wins landslide to secure third straight term
H/T Politico
Hungary goes all in for Fascism. Anti-Immigration, free to pursue the vision of an “illiberal democracy,” complete with anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies, crackdowns on NGOs and strong opposition to greater EU integration.
More Trumpism, on steroids.

Finally,
How Should Progressives Respond to Trump’s Trade Tantrums?
H/T The Nation
A thoughtful treatise on what’s wrong with the global economic system and how progressives can offer viable alternaives…Good read.

Open Thread, roll it up and swat a pervert with it!

Ground Fresh on Wednesaze!

And heeeeeeeeeeerres the Gnuz!

Liberals just won a seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court by a huge margin
H/T Vox
Winning! R’s – not so much…

And,
Mueller told Trump’s attorneys the president remains under investigation but is not currently a criminal target
H/T Wa Po
Read the fine print. Especially the words ‘At this time’. Tax Returns, Russian Mobster ‘investments’ in the Panama Hotel, lots more questions. Perhaps the Interview would be just GRAND if a JURY were sitting in on it?

Finally,
Trump Says U.S. Will Use Military To Protect Border With Mexico
H/T HuffPo
Just a few details…Governors have to request the National Guard be called out. For a reason. Posse Comitatus prohibits US Soldiers from doing police work in the US.
Good luck with that. However, we could arrange to have all the ‘well regulated militias’ come on down to the border with their arms and stand shoulder to shoulder at attention for the entire summer.

Open Thread, chew on it!
