trump sad :(

On Wednesday, we reported that FBI Director James Comey finally found some time, between washing his hair and writing fake Hillary emails in his Trapper Keeper so he can play like he’s “investigating” them, to go over to Congress to give Senators Chuck Grassley and Dianne Feinstein, respectively the chairman and ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, a briefing on the Trump Russia investigation. Two other members of the committee, Republican Lindsey Graham and Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse, have also been demanding that the FBI turn over any “evidence” it has that Barack Obama put a “wire tapp” in Donald Trump’s bottom, like Trump claimed on Twitter. But that’s unfair, because the Justice Department and the FBI need more time to find this “evidence” that definitely exists!

Well, seems like Republicans have just ’bout had it with this shit. Or as the New York Times puts it, they are getting “openly testy” about it! First let’s look at this hot-off-the-presses letter from the Senate Intelligence Committee, signed by committee chair GOP Senator Richard Burr. It calls utter BS on Trump’s “wire tapp” claims:

That is, um, pretty definitive! And a big EFF YOU to Trump!

Next, let’s visit with Speaker Paul Ryan, who Thursday morning came this close to calling Trump a lying liar who lies all the time, in regards to his “wire tapp” allegations:

House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday that “no such wiretap existed,” citing intelligence reports to House leaders after President Donald Trump accused then-President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower last year.

“The intelligence committees, in their continuing, widening, ongoing investigations of all things Russia, got to the bottom — at least so far with respect to our intelligence community — that no such wiretap existed,” Ryan said in response to a question from CNN at a news conference.

Paul Ryan is probably just saying cruel lies because he secretly hates Donald Trump, MUST ALERT BREITBART!

So, that’s the Senate Intelligence Committee and the speaker of the House, saying Trump’s bullshit claim is bullshit. What about the other Republicans the NYT says are so TESTY right now?

The Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Representative Devin Nunes of California, told reporters on Capitol Hill that “I don’t think there was an actual tap of Trump Tower” and that Mr. Trump, if taken literally, is simply “wrong.”

Devin Nunes LOVES Donald Trump, and he wanted to investigate the “wire tapp” so bad! How can he betray the idiot “president” this way? ET TU, DEVIN?

Jeff Sessions, the attorney general, said he had provided no information to Mr. Trump that might have formed the basis for the president’s claim.

Jefferson Beauregard! How do you say “ET TU, JEFF?” in Alabamian-ese? Oh that’s right, you say it like, “Bless your heart.”

As we mentioned Wednesday, Senator Lindsey Graham has been so sassy about this that he and Chuck Grassley are threatening to hold up the confirmation of Rod Rosenstein, the nominee to be deputy attorney general, AKA the guy who would be responsible for overseeing investigations into Trump’s ties with Russia, since Jeff Sessions had to recuse himself. So mark South Carolina Sassypants and Grassley down as “testy.”

The Times points out that all this has put Justice in a weird kind of damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don’t kind of place. On one hand, if they call bullshit on Trump, they’re, you know, calling the president a big liar. (Comey basically asked Justice to do just that.) If it turns out that some FISA warrant did exist, then they’re probably confirming they have the goods on Trump, which would be UH OH!

But has Donald Trump not completely clarified that he didn’t really mean “wire tapp” when he said “wire tapp”? Um sort of not really! In a wide-ranging interview with Tucker Carlson that showed off the full breadth of the president’s intellect (they talked about how fun Twitter is), Trump explained that it all really comes down to what the definition of “is” “wire tapp” is:

[D]on’t forget, when I say wiretapping, those words were in quotes. That really covers, because wiretapping is pretty old fashioned stuff. But that really covers surveillance and many other things. And nobody ever talks about the fact that it was in quotes, but that’s a very important thing.

But wiretap covers a lot of different things. I think you’re going to find some very interesting items coming to the forefront over the next two weeks.

Tucker Carlson’s next question to Trump, we shitteth you not, was “Do you talk to anyone before you tweet?”

But you see, all this stuff about chasing down a “wire tapp” isn’t the point, even though Trump said Obama did a “wire tapp” to him, because Trump was talking about a WIDE RANGE of things, up to and including how maybe Kellyanne Conway’s Hungry-Man frozen dinners are recording EVERY WORD HE SAYS. Can’t you see how he put “wire tapp” in quotes?

To be clear, Trump puts things in quotes all the time, because he doesn’t know the rules of punctuation. (For god’s sake, GQ did a whole investigation into the man’s use of quotation marks.) And to be even more clear, he didn’t put “wire tapp” in quotes every single time in the tweets that started this whole controversy. Dumbass McSpellsBad definitely did not put it in quotes when he wrote, “How low has Obama gone to tapp my phones,” and ended his interrogatory sentence with a period.

In summary, Trump is a fucking idiot and even Republicans are starting to figure it out, hip hip hooray!

        Have you seen Trump’s proposed budget? You might want to put that popcorn away for awhile.

        Almost 1/3 cut from EPA. NEA & NEH eliminated. Huge cuts to NIH funding, which has been flatlined already for 20 years and is in desperate need of more, not less $$. Giant cuts to social and public welfare programs broadly defined. $900M cut from DOE’s science budget. I’m not even getting warmed up.

  • OneYieldRegular

    I can’t wait for some poor soul to pore through Trump’s twattering history to document all of the times he’s put things in “quotes.” That’s going to turn up a shitload of things Trump wasn’t saying when he was saying them.

    At this point, Burr resembles one of those SS officers at Dachau who tried to hide out in a barn dressed as one of the local peasantry. He’s merely at one of the limits of his cowardice.

    There’s a lot more cowardice in him.

        One of my junior high school teachers was with the group who liberated Dachau. History teacher, even.

        He just left it at that. The same guys went on to occupy Obersalzburg. He had a bag of German medals and badges that he showed us. One was this big ornate Nazi eagle in silver. He said it came off of one of the refrigerators in the basement.

    There were a bunch of interesting things floating in my Twitter stream yesterday after Grassley and Feinstein had their little chat with Comey in the Cone of Silence down in the Congressional Basement. They were both interviewed and because they couldn’t comment on what was said (Cone of Silence) people were analyzing their affect . . . which was along the lines of “Last time I saw Diane Feinstein with an expression like that, she was announcing the assassination oft Harvey Milk.” And then Nunes and Shiff were also interviewed and Nunes kind of looked and sounded like he had just seen pictures of a blood-soaked murder/suicide.

    Quotes are the new crossed fingers. Add that to the “nothing I said prior to the presidency counts” defense and he’s abdicated responsibility for pretty much everything he ever has or ever will say or write. Is that any way to run a fucking ballroom?

    • Bub the Hoohah! loving Zombie

      He’s never taken responsibility for a single fucking thing he’s ever done. Someone else is always left holding the bag. One bit of solace I take is the fact that his fucking kids are going to be the ones dealing with the fact that the historical opprobrium attached to the name “Trump” will last for generations. I hope they like being among the most hated people on the planet, because they are going to be. Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch either. (I do have a bit of sympathy for Barron)

    Mulvaney now claiming that there’s no proof that Head Start or Meals on Wheels actually helps anyone, so they can’t continue to give states money without guaranteeing it will be used properly and be effective

    As opposed to the block grants for education and the block grants for health insurance, where they have eschewed any oversight on how that money is spent, because “it should be left up to the states to decide”

    also too, billions for the stupid wall- despite the fact that for the last ten years visa overstays account for more than half of the undocumented immigrants and by definition the wall wouldn’t fix that

    These motherfuckers are not only monstrously hateful and spiteful with their bullshit, but it isn’t even believable bullshit…

    • Thaumaturgist

    I think it’s useful to keep in mind that Mr. Trump really isn’t a Republican. And many in the Republican Party haven’t forgotten that. He jacked the party for a joyride to the White House, and many of them are a bit pissed off that all he’s done so far is run it out of oil and jam the transmission.

    • DahBoner

      Bullshit.

      Donald Trump is a Republican. He is a registered Republican in the State of New York as of the year 2009.

      Trump is a Republican, just like Ronald Reagan was a Republican.

      Have you ever met a Republican who claims Reagan was not a Republican because he was once a Democrat?

      • TundraGrifter

        I don’t care what he was or wasn’t registered as. I just look at what passes for his policies. Granted, it’s a moving target. But look at the problems he’s having right here – today – getting the House with a GNoP majority to pass his first major piece of legislation.

        • DahBoner

          His policies are bullshit. Haven’t you learned that yet? His ONLY policy is to make himself look “strong” and to enrich himself and his family, that’s it. Same as every other Republican. 😁

          • Pisto75666

            If it looks like an elephant, and smells like an elephant, you can’t turn around and say it’s a duck just to make yourself look better.

          • TundraGrifter

            Of course his policies are BS. So are the GNoP’s. Actually, Mr. Trump doesn’t have any policies. Or principles. Other than to scam people to make himself rich. And lust after his own daughter.

  • Mike Steele

    Lady MS here, just following Sphincterfest: First, you get to write your ArgleBargle answers, Sean, not the reporters’ questions. Secondly, if you’re keeping America safe, how does diverting DHS funds from TSA and the Coast Guard for your Mexican-paid wall help to achieve that goal? Thirdly, in what way do federal funds expended to guard Uday/Qusay on overseas business trips and Donald’s weekends w/Bernies in FL show respect for hard-working, tax-paying, law-abiding Americans? Put me in, Coach!!!!!

  • Mike Steele

    Also, too, may shamrocks form Mulvaney’s shroud…in God’s good time, of course.

    GQ also mailed Trump a tie clip with instructions on how to use it. The video is (quietly, tastefully) savage.

    Caught a bit of Lyin’ Spice trying to put lipstick on this particular pig this afternoon. I think the press pool was falling asleep. Natter, natter, natter, and more qualifiers than the Tour de France. I’ll give him this, though, now when reporters ask him if he’s kidding, seriously, dude, you’re kidding, right? he doesn’t fly off the handle any more. Well, not very FAR off the handle, anyway.

      Behind the scenes, there is a rumor that little Sean is very close to a nervous breakdown. He was examined by a doctor recently. I have no sympathy for this little tyke.

        I hear rumors that some of the leaks are from him. I hope its true.

  • Blackest Noobs

    shouldn’t making up shit…i.e. LYING be an impeachable offense?

    I MEAN COME ON, REPUBLICANS!! you preachy preach day in day out about accountability and right now you actually got a dude who’s a lying shit and you can ACTUALLY prove without a doubt you all ACTUALLY PRACTICE WHAT YOU FUCKERS PREACH DAY IN, DAY OUT.

    hilariously only a few are saying some things but not really much except for sassy Miss Lindsey…and yeah sorry even that sassy miss ISNT ENOUGH.

    • Poly_Ester

      Lying is an impeachable only if your last name is Clinton. The you only have to be perceived as lying.

      • Blackest Noobs

        now correct if im wrong but they convicted Clinton on perjury and a few days ago on the radio i heard them discussing Sessions’s possible perjury and said perjury was difficult to prove because you had to prove the person committing the perjury willfully intended to lie. like basically it rarely happens.

        so lawyer-peeps….what what is up with that?

          He did have sexual relations with that woman. It was proven. Therefore, by saying under oath he didn’t have sexual relations with that woman, he could easily be convicted of perjuring himself.

    For a business man, 45 doesn’t seem to understand that words can get you into deep financial and legal trouble. There have been lawsuits that have emerged from improper use of something as simple as the Oxford comma. One grammatical error can cost millions. This is presumably something a man in his position should know.

    As for the use of quotation marks, they’re called that for a reason. It denotes a quote, not anything else. It’s not parsing when the nature of language involves policy, people’s rights, and lives. You can’t play around with language while accusing someone of a felony. It IS important.

  • Choosymom

    Gaaah! Can we just get to the good part about how President McPu$$grab is in deep with the Russkies!
    That smoking gun has got to be out there!

    • JTS

      ” is in deep with the Russkies ” – could have been taken from Dr Strangelove – a parody of clueless american paranoia about Russia . Guys , Russia probably does look for ways to resist the USA , being surrounded by american bases , but it couldn’t match the destructive behaviours america’s political rot has produced on its own . The commie world domination plot is long gone ( they knew it anyway , disguising the failure as ‘Socialism in One Country ” policy ).
      Plug your ears against the NY Times , MSNBC et al and listen to Putin”s words , then compare them to Trump’s Dumps . Who sounds more believable ?

    Are you trying to tell me that when someone gets on twitter at four in
    the morning, and then they announce that they “just found out” that the
    prior administration committed a felony, and then the next most
    important thing for them to do is send out a new tweet about Arnold
    Schwarzenegger’s television ratings…. you’re telling me that that
    person shouldn’t be taken seriously?

    • ksimms

      Then he goes golfing. I mean, his supporters call it “work golf”. Which means it’s just golf when he should be working.

        Work Golf, meaning Führer Trump takes his smart phone and an eight ball of cocaine.

    Somewhat OT but….
    So there’s this little 5 year old chap on Ellen and he’s like Sheldon Cooper with flags (only way more charming). And he drew a little kid’s map of the world, so Ellen was getting his take on it. She pointed to this one bit and he said, “That’s Russia!”

    Now he draws little figures of things he associates with that country in their spot on his home-made map and there’s this little humanoid on Russia. So Ellen asks him what he drew on Russia.

    “Oh, that’s funny!” he says, and then after a moment of giggling he explains, “That’s Trump, because he likes Russia!”

  • AJ Milne

    WaPo at this hour has a headline… Contains that a certain asshole conman ‘stands by’ his ‘unproven allegations’…

    ‘Unproven’ is… erm… excessively charitable, I figure, by now, WaPo. Can’t we just go with ‘Asshole still refusing to admit he lied’? And thanks awfully.

    • Relativicus

      I’ve also seen it called an “unproven conspiracy theory” — by a media source (can’t recall which) — as if there’s proof of the conspiracy, but we just haven’t found it yet.

    Bamz has always known that Tangerini is a fool and will trip over his own tongue and bring an end to his tenure in the Oval Office all by himself. While he isn’t happy that this jerk is making a laughingstock of the office he once held, he isn’t going to help him in any way. And if Tangerini would even have one of his surrogates ask, I hope he slams the door on that idiot’s face.

  • CeeQ

    They’re standing by their allegation even though there is no evidence. Spicer said today that there will be more info coming. Classified info that the Intelligence committee hasn’t been provided. Which begs the question – how does HE know? And if there is – then go on and call on the FBI to confirm it. Oh wait. The FBI already said this is all BS.

    OMG it is never going to end.

      Yeah, just like tRump’s wonderful plan to defeat ISIL was coming any day. And then it changed to his generals were going to come up with the plan. Then that deadline passed too.

      Anyone else remember that huge promise during the campaign? His genius brain had devised a way to rid the world of terrorism within 30 days but he was keeping it super secret so it wouldn’t tip off the bad dudes.

    If you think Republicans are finally figuring out that Trump is a fucking idiot you are giving far to much credit to Republicans. I think Mitch and Paul can stand right there next to Donald on the intellect podium and do a three stooges number fighting over who took top honors.

    • davidhollenshead

      Their party is not just the Mcconnell & Ryan, but also includes McCain & Graham, and the issue is not if, but when.
      They will act when leaving Führer Trump the TRAITOR in place will hurt them more than Impeaching him.

    when you’ve got the British Intelligence Agency calling your allegations out as “nonsense” rather than “no comment” then maybe take a step back from your attempt at deflection from your terrible healthcare plan.

    • potrzebie

      The British Intelligence Agency also called out the “Saddam tried to get yellow cake uranium” allegations as “nonsense”. But that didn’t stop them from putting it back into W.s State of the Union address after it was removed 16 times, or stop Cheney from outing Valerie Plame, or stop us from invading Iraq. Republicans have no shame, morals or ethics.

    Actual quote: TRUMP: “I had been reading about things. I read in — I think it was January 20th, a New York Times article where they were talking about wiretapping. There was an article, I think they used that exact term. I read other things. I watched (FOX News) Bret Baier the day previous, where he was talking about certain, very complex sets of things happening, and wiretapping. I said “Wait a minute, there’s a lot of wiretapping being talked about.”

    The asked, “…but you are the president. You have the ability to gather all the evidence you want.”

    TRUMP: “I do, I do, but I think that frankly we have a lot right now, and I think if you watch — if you watched the Bret Baier and what he was saying, and what he was talking about and… how he mentioned the word wiretap, you would feel very confident that you could mention the name. He mentioned it, and other people mentioned it, but if you take a look at some of the things written about wiretapping and eavesdropping — and don’t forget, when I say wiretap, those words were in quotes.”
