Federal Judge Reminds Trump that Presidents Aren’t Kings

“Kicking off a frenzied half hour in Washington on Monday night, federal Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson ordered McGahn to testify before the House of Representatives, which has been trying to force his appearance since April over Mueller’s findings that suggest Trump obstructed justice in the Russia investigation. Jackson dismissed the President’s claim that McGahn was subject to blanket immunity.
Getting right down to the basics that most Americans learn in school, the judge quoted Founding Fathers James Madison and Alexander Hamilton and French diplomat Alexis de Tocqueville to explain the nature of the presidency.


‘Stated simply, the primary takeaway from the past 250 years of recorded American history is that Presidents are not kings’, Jackson wrote.”


CNN


It’s Civics 101 that America is a democracy and not a monarchy or a theocracy, and the head of our government is a president elected by citizens and not a king born to the purple.

But Donald Trump is hazy about the concept of the Legislative and Judicial branches being coequal to the Executive, and he rules as if Congress has no oversight over his actions and the Judicial system has no power to interpret and clarify the law.

Trump’s sycophants, and by that I mean every member of his administration, do nothing to dissuade him from the notion that he’s not a king. In fact, they treat him as if he’s not just a king but a Messianic figure, a few of Trump’s evangelical cabinet members have called him the chosen one.

Trump has embraced the “chosen one” title, and he goes ballistic whenever anyone in his administration expresses the slightest reservation about any of his ludicrous comments or toxic tweets. Like any king worth his salt he demands unquestioned loyalty from his subordinates.

Federal Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson curtly dismissed Trump’s claim that McGhan was subject to blanket immunity, reminding him that Presidents aren’t kings. Unfortunately, I don’t think Trump will be swayed by the judge’s ruling, in fact he will vilify her just as he has done with other judges who ruled against him.

As long as Trump is surrounded by aides who have yellow streaks down their backs and brown noses, he will continue to act as a monarch. If the stable genius isn’t impeached by the House and removed from office by the Senate, it’s incumbent on the electorate to kick him to the curb on November 2020.

Trump Pardons White House Turkeys ‘Bread’ and ‘Butter’

Hardly a day goes by that the buffoon-in-chief doesn’t break a presidential norm, so it was surprising that he continued the tradition of pardoning a Thanksgiving turkey.

Trump pardoned Butter and Bread, two beautiful turkeys who must eat a lot of butter and bread because they both weigh about 50 pounds. It was refreshing to witness the national embarrassment pardon two deserving birds instead of a convicted war criminal or a convicted racist sheriff.

But you can always count on the stable genius to screw things up, he ruined the heartwarming moment by making a lame impeachment joke. Trump quipped that Butter and Bread had been raised to remain calm under any condition, a trait he said will be very important because they’ve already received subpoenas to appear in Adam Schiff’s basement.

Whenever I write an article about the freaking moron I’m always compelled to fact-check or to explain his misleading comments. Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, held the depositions in the basement of the Capital Visitor Center because that’s where the secure room is located.

Trump claims that he isn’t worried about the impeachment hearings and that the “witch hunt” will actually help him get reelected. But this story illustrates just how much he’s worried about the impeachment proceedings.

The nation will have a lot to be thankful for if Trump is impeached by the House and removed from office by the Senate.

If Only Donald Trump Had a Smidgen of the Intelligence and Loyalty of Conan the Hero Military Service Dog

President Donald Trump on Monday finally met Conan, a military service dog injured in the U.S. raid that resulted in the death of former Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. After teasing for weeks that the Belgian Malinois would come to the White House, Trump introduced Conan to journalists during a surprise event in the Rose Garden. ‘So this is Conan. Right now probably the world’s most famous dog,’ Trump told reporters. ‘I learned a lot about this particular type of dog. It’s trained that, if you open your mouth you will be attacked. You want to be very, very careful.’

Time Magazine

Almost every president since time immemorial has kept a pet pooch at the White House. A president without a dog is as conspicuous as a president without a wife or a body man.

Donald Trump is conspicuous for many foul reasons, naturally we haven’t spent much time mediating why he doesn’t have a faithful canine by his side.

The stable genius probably figures: Mike Pence is more servile than any mutt, he’s always sniffing my butt and is quick to obey my every command, who needs a puppy?

You can’t argue with the reality that Pence is an obedient lap dog, but still I would feel better if Trump had a pooch around to calm his nerves so he wouldn’t be so reckless.

But I’m glad that for at least one day a dog, Conan the military service canine, was in the White House with Trump. I’m praying that at least a smidgen of Conan’s bravery and intelligence rubbed off on the fucken moron.

Republicans Pretend to Love Trump’s Ass, Nobody Pretends to Love His Mind

In the impeaching hearings the Democrats’ lawyer, Daniel Goldman, asked Ambassador Gordon Sondland if he recalled telling President Donald Trump that the Ukrainian leader “loves your ass” during a July 26 call at a restaurant in Kiev.

Sondland, who isn’t a career diplomat with a penchant for using diplomatic language, conceded that he could have said that because it sounds like something I would say.

The billionaire who bought his ambassadorship by donating a cool million to Trump’s inauguration said “that’s how President Trump and I communicate. A lot of four-letter words. In this case, three letters.”

He explained that he was putting it in “Trump-speak.” I can imagine how frustrating it must be for anyone who interacts with Trump daily, he must dumb down his vocabulary and spice up his conversation with expletives.

I doubt that Zelensky or anybody else in the world loves Trump’s wrinkled orange ass, but there are many who at least pretend to like him.

But there isn’t a single person in the world who’s claimed to love Trump’s head or his intellect. However, there are many politicians with brown noses, a testament to how much they love Trump’s ass.

I don’t love Trump’s ass, in fact I hate his racist and vulgar ass, and I’m going to kick his ass to the curb come election time.

Jim Carrey Paints Donald Trump as Las Vegas Era Elvis Presley

Actor Jim Carrey turned to Elvis Presley to ding President Donald Trump in his latest mocking cartoon, which he shared online Thursday.

Trump as the late King of Rock and Roll performs a tweaked version of the 1969 hit ‘Suspicious Minds’ in the artwork.

‘They’re caught in a trap, they can’t walk out, because they love me too much baby,’ he sings as top members of his administration are tied together behind him.

‘His reign will soon be over,’ Carrey captioned the piece. ‘Woe to the loyal subjects of this counterfeit king.’

Huffington Post

Jim Carrey’s legacy will be as a cartoonist and not an actor, his series of Trump-themed cartoons dwarf his accomplishments as a comedic actor.

Carrey’s latest masterpiece depicts Donald Trump as the Las Vegas era Elvis crooning Suspicious Minds.

Elvis in his Vegas incarnation was a parody of himself: a bloated behemoth bellowing his hits for his besotted fans. But at least Elvis in his youth was really the King of Rock and Roll, an icon who ruled the pop charts and transformed the culture at large.

Donald Trump boasted that he was the King of New York real estate, but in reality he was a con artist and such a failure as businessman that the bankrupted his casinos.

Trump resembles the Las Vegas era Elvis in appearance only, he is a talentless fat slob who belts out all the hits in his campaign rallies (build the wall! lock her up!) to his brainwashed fans.

Elvis died in his porcelain throne with enough drugs in his blood to kill a dozen men; I won’t be surprised if Trump dies is his toilet with his arteries blocked with plaque, his intestines full of crap and his mind full of hate and venom.

Jon Voight’s Cringeworthy Dance for Donald Trump Will Make You Pluck Your Eyes Out

“Jon Voight took his Donald Trump worship act to the White House on Thursday, dancing awkwardly for the president during a ceremony to receive a National Medal of Arts.


Music from Voight’s 1969 film ‘Midnight Cowboy’ played in the East Room when the 80-year-old Oscar winner rose from his chair to provide an impromptu shuffle that earned a fist pump and a finger point from Trump.


Huffington Post


Jon Voight is a celebrated actor best known for his iconic roles as a wannabe gigolo in Midnight Cowboy, a paraplegic Vietnam veteran in Coming Home and of course as a businessman who survived a nightmare canoe trip in the Georgia wilderness in Deliverance.


An actor’s brilliance on celluloid usually inoculates him from his fans shunning his films when the darker aspects of his personal life are revealed, but when Voight became one of the biggest cheerleaders for Donald Trump even his most devoted fans turned away from him.

The last chapter of Voight’s life has been dedicated to singing the praises of the loathsome, vulgar, and racist Donald Trump. The legendary actor is a vociferous defender of the president on Twitter, and he eviscerates anyone who criticizes his idol.

Voight took his “I will do anything to debase myself for Trump act” to the White House dancing awkwardly for Trump during a ceremony to receive a National Medal of Arts. His embarrassing display may have earned a fist pump from Trump, but it elicited winces and epithets from the viewing audience.

Voight’s family needs to hold an intervention, and confine him to a 12-step program or a retirement home for retired thespians.

Rep. Eric Swalwell Blows Up His Political Career by Farting on Live TV! #FartGate

“California Rep. Eric Swalwell might regret appearing on ‘Hardball with Chris Matthews’ this week after his interview on the MSNBC show went viral for all the wrong reasons.


Swalwell, 39, appeared on Monday’s episode to debate whether or not President Trump used taxpayer dollars to cheat in the election, but midway through one of his statements, a loud farting noise interrupted the broadcast.


‘Chris, so far the evidence is uncontradicted that the president used taxpayer dollars to help him cheat…’ he said, before the erroneous noise was heard. ‘…an election. And the complaint that I’ve heard from Republicans…'”


AOL News


Eric Swalwell’s presidential run had all the impact of a wet fart, it didn’t make much noise but the utter futility of his campaign left him soiled.

Swalwell’s brief interview with Chris Matthews made more of an impact that his ill-fated presidential campaign. Usually political hacks like Swalwell make news for the hot air that emanates from their mouth, but this time Swalwell went viral for the tremendous blast that emanated from his butt.

Swalwell’s fart was so prodigiously loud that #FartGate briefly eclipsed #UkraineGate as the hottest topic on Twitter. Swallwell’s fart will linger for far longer than a news cycle, it will doom any future presidential run.

The only way Swalwell could have redeemed himself and saved his political career was by admitting that he was the one that cut the cheese. But nobody ever admits that they farted, and certainly not a politician.

Did Swalwell art on live TV? Watch the video! You be the judge!

Mike Pompeo Should Resign Before He’s Fired by Trump

Regardless how obsequious and subservient a White House official may be Trump will eventually turn against him, it’s impossible to please a colicky baby with the attention span of a gnat.

The vice president Mike Pence may be an evangelical but he never speaks truth to power by speaking out against any of Donald Trump’s outrages against the Bible, the Constitution and plain decency. His unquestioned loyalty to his boss is stamped on his face as he looks adoringly at the Fearless Leader whenever he’s speaking. But if Trump thinks that trading in Pence for Nikki Haley will help him be reelected he will kick the sanctimonious bastard to the curb in a New York minute.

Only the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo rivals Pence for his slavish devotion to Trump. Pompeo is so haughty, disdainful and arrogant that his nose is permanently in the air, but it’s brownish tint testifies that even he kisses Trump’s butt.

Nevertheless, the impeachment inquiry has created a rift between Trump and his closest ally. Trump holds Pompeo responsible for hiring State Department officials whose testimony in the impeachment hearings threatens to bring down his presidency.

Pompeo ordered State Department employees not to comply with subpoenas to testify before any impeachment hearings, he did his best to intimidate witnesses in order to protect himself and Trump. Fortunately, dedicated career diplomats like William Taylor and Marie Yovanovitch place country before their careers.

Pompeo is despised by Trump for his failure to prevent State Department officials from testifying before Congress, and he is despised by State Department employees for refusing to publicly defend Yovanovitch after she was disparaged by Trump.

Pompeo should read the writing on the wall, and resign before he is summarily fired by his impetuous boss.

Melania Trump #BeBest and Condemn Your Husband’s Online Bullying

A trophy wife’s main responsibility is to dress stylishly, smile adoringly at her benefactor and keep her mouth shut unless her man is being criticized in which case, she is expected to defend him vehemently.

Donald Trump is a crude, vulgar, misogynist, racist and mean-spirited buffoon who is under constant criticism by just about everyone who isn’t on his payroll, but Melania rarely deigns to defend him.

I’m surprised Trump has traded in the former glorified escort for a younger model, but I guess he stays married to her because at least she doesn’t raise a peep about his serial philandering or any of his other vices.

A First Lady is expected to adopt a pet cause, and instead of choosing one like saving the whales, Melania’s Be Best campaign focus is on battling the scourge of online bullying.

Why Melania’s pet cause is fighting cyber bullying when her husband is the biggest cyber bully in the world is beyond me. You’d think she would have chosen a project that wouldn’t open her up to charges of cowardice and hypocrisy, considering she’s never castigated her husband for savaging people, especially women, online.

But now everyone is excoriating Melania for keeping silent when her husband attacked former Ukrainian ambassador Marie Yovanovitch on Twitter while she was testifying during the impeachment hearings.

I don’t expect Melania to get all legal on us and accuse Trump of witness intimidation, but the least she could do is gently chide him for disparaging a courageous woman and consummate professional who is guilty only of doing her patriotic duty.

Come on now Melania, Be Best!

Donald Trump Jr’s Book ‘Triggered #1 New York Times Bestseller Thanks to Bulk Order by RNC

This week Donald Trump Jr.’s first book “Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us” landed on the top of the New York Times non-fiction best-seller list.

Many literary giants have published dozens of books in their distinguished careers without ever hitting the coveted spot on top of the New York Times bestseller list.

Which begs the question, how was the novice writer able to achieve such a remarkable accomplishment?

The Trump name certainly helps, Junior could publish a book entitled, “How to Apply Bikini Wax to the Genital Area and Other Grooming Advice for Republican Metrosexuals” and it would become a bestseller because Trump supporters consider anything published by a Trump holy writ. Trump cultists consider supporting any endeavor by a Trump their religious duty.

It also helps that the Republican National Committee (RNC) bought a gazillion copies to give to donors. That’s why on the New York Times’ list, next to the title, there’s a small dagger, meant to indicate that some retailers reported receiving bulk orders of the item. In other words, the only reason why the book shot all the way to the top was because the RNC bought thousands of copies.

There’s always an asterisk next to any Trump victory or achievement, there’s an enormous asterisk next to Donald Trump’s 2016 victory considering he had help from the Russians and Hillary won the popular election by three million votes.

The simple fact that an idiot like the First Boy was able to publish a book by a reputable publisher is testament to the fact that he isn’t being silenced. Although, how we wish that Junior and his father would shut the hell up
