Damn that Obama! What criminal audacity he had to govern while black. And he even said that black people should be allowed to vote! Treason!!! … Is this Fascist serious? No wonder the pseudo-Christian sheeple still goose-step with a piddle pervert! RESIST!!
From the New Yorker: After many noticed their silence amid the calamitous events of the past several days, Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, confirmed on Wednesday that they have been enjoying a late-summer vacation in a moral vacuum.
In a brief interview with reporters, Trump said that she and Kushner were “just loving” their time in the moral vacuum, calling it “our very favorite place to be.”
“It’s heaven,” she said. “We get up in the morning and never give a thought to our responsibility as Jews, Americans, or moral actors whose decisions have consequences for other people.”
Andy is reporting straight news again. RESIST!!
From Daily Kos: \There is still a segment of America out there that believes Trump’s public pronouncements—about African Americans, Latinos, Muslims, Jews, really anyone of different color or faith than himself—are some type of political invention, an opportunistic, contrived pose to please the base of people who put him into office.
No. He’s a real, genuine, dyed-in-the-wool racist. The real deal.
Buried in this New York Times piece about how Trump has emboldened the white supremacist movement is an observation about Trump by his aides that explains when Trump is away from the cameras he’s just as much of a racist as he has sounded during this past week:
No word in the Trump lexicon is as tread-worn as “unprecedented.” But members of the president’s staff, stunned and disheartened, said they never expected to hear such a voluble articulation of opinions that the president had long expressed in private.
In other words, Trump wakes up hating African Americans, Latinos, Jews and Muslims, and goes to bed hating African-Americans, Latinos, Jews and Muslims. When he goes to the bathroom or eats his Froot-Loops he’s thinking—and more than that, he’s talking—about how much he hates African- Americans, Latinos, Jews and Muslims.
He’s spouting so much bigotry at his aides in private that they’re embarrassed it’s all now being spilled out in public.
The Fuhrer has pegged himself again! RESIST!!
From NY Times: [In]Justice Neil M. Gorsuch, President Trump’s Supreme Court appointee, is scheduled to address a conservative group at the Trump International Hotel in Washington next month, less than two weeks before the court is set to hear arguments on Mr. Trump’s travel ban.
Stephen Gillers, an expert on legal ethics at New York University, questioned the justice’s decision to speak at the hotel, which is at issue in lower-court cases challenging the constitutionality of payments to Mr. Trump’s companies.
“At this highly divisive political moment, especially as many Trump decisions are likely soon to reach the court’s docket, one just days later, a healthy respect for public confidence in the court should have led Justice Gorsuch to demur,” he said.
Justice Gorsuch declined to comment, said Kathleen L. Arberg, the Supreme Court’s public information officer.
Whoresuch sees no conflict. He already knows he’ll side with his Fuhrer no matter what evidence is presented. RESIST!!
From LA Times: Exactly one year ago, Donald Trump tapped conservative media insurgent Stephen K. Bannon as chief executive of his campaign, affirming that while Trump was the nominee, his was a hostile takeover of the Republican Party: with Bannon, he would take it in a new direction — nationalist, nativist and economically populist.
Bannon got some credit for Trump’s upset win and then, as chief strategist in the White House, for his early orders against immigrants, refugees, and more. On Friday, suddenly he was out. Perhaps appropriately, his ouster came in a week in which Trump left no doubt his voice is his own. Bannon was no ventriloquist.
Trump is not a Nazi because of his association with Bannon. Trump is a Nazi, because he represents the views of the Republican Party, and they represent his views. Bannon sees the bottom of the bus, only to give Trump a way to hide. Nothing has changed. RESIST!!
