Relax TO THE MAX!!!!!!!
We’ve moved one step closer to authoritarianism with the firing of the Attorney General to undermine a federal investigation into the president.
In true crime mob fashion, Jeff Sessions’ chief of staff, Matt Whitaker, not somebody who has been vetted and confirmed by the Senate, has been given the title of Acting Attorney General, not the actual Deputy Attorney General, which would be protocol. That would be Rod Rosentstein and he can’t fire himself.
Fire Sessions, fire Rosenstein, then fire Mueller to suppress the Mueller investigation. This is going to make the Saturday Night Massacre look like Saturday Night Fever on quaaludes.
Matt Whitaker is a talking head from Fox News with an axe to grind. He said that Hillary Clinton should have been prosecuted for her emails. He has been ranting about the Mueller investigation for a year. He’s against it. It’s a witch hunt. He should recuse himself from the Mueller investigation but he won’t. That’s not why he was hired.
Republican hypocrite fun fact: Matt Whitaker was the executive director of the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT), a conservative ethics watchdog. While there, he created a hit list of 46 Democratic individuals and organizations he wanted to take down. Among them: The DNC, Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State John Kerry, Senator Mark Warner, Senator Claire McCaskill, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, Congressman John Lewis, and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
This is a code blue moment, replacing the Attorney General with a Fox News blow hard loyalist political staffer! Bob Mueller’s investigation must be protected!
In a press conference at the White House yesterday, Trump mocked Republicans who distanced themselves from him, insulted reporters, calling one a “rude, terrible person” and walked away from the lectern at one point, telling a reporter to sit down. He made an ass out of himself to take the midterm glory away from the Democrats. As long as we’re talking about Trump picking fights with reporters, we’re not talking about the Dems taking control of the House which means the Dems will take control of Trump.
CNN’s Jim Acosta was denied entrance into the White House last night and his credentials were suspended because they claimed he got physical with a female intern who tried to grab the mic out of his hand at the press conference where Trump stole the Democrats’ thunder. The White House is now accusing Acosta of accosting a young female intern. It spread a doctored propaganda video from a conspiracy website of a crime that Acosta did not commit.
Trump said he intends to exploit divisions among House Democrats, pitting Pelosi against new, progressive members who rose out of the resistance.
There was another mass shooting in a country western bar in southern California last night. The killer threw smoke grenades and used a hand gun to kill 12 people and injure 11 others. It was college night. This is the largest mass shooting in 12 days. The target? A bar full of educated young adults.
Lucy McBath just won the race for Georgia’s hotly contested 6th Congressional district seat. Her teen aged son, Jordan, was shot and killed while sitting in the car with his friends listening to really loud music in a convenience store parking lot. A pissed off, middle aged angry white man murdered him. Jordan was black. Lucy is doing this for her son. She’s going to take on the NRA.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell and broke a few ribs. She’s in the hospital.
Tonight at 5 pm local time, more than 900 protests will take place around the US to protect Bob Mueller.
It would’ve been nice to have had a few days to relax.
