    My horrible Freedumb Caucus Representative, the one who claims that the problem isn’t health insurance but whether your deductible is low enough to allow you meaningful access to health care, put out the tweet below yesterday. He was immediately attacked for doing exactly what he claimed he wasn’t: Making health insurance so expensive for people with pre-existing conditions that people would have neither useful insurance nor care. Asshole.

        I can’t see how Lil Kim is going to use strategic missiles against South Korea. Anything he’s likely to mate a nuke to will probably have have a minimum range longer than the peninsula . And using THAAD to shoot down short range missiles doesn’t seem worth the trouble.

      In fairness, Prop 13 did the same for California 30 years ago.

      • BadKitty904

        Then California realized what it had done, kicked the Republicans out of the Legislature, and now has one of the world’s top economies.

        • From Russia with Love

          Last time I lived there was 1990, and they still had a cap on property taxes due to Prop13. Property’s where most school funding comes from. I benefited from it because they couldn’t raise my property taxes, but it fucked up school funding.

    • Stulexington

      “”I think we need to … make sure we’ve squeezed every nickel, dime and penny out of every corner that we can before we just start raising taxes,” said Republican Mike Schulz, the Senate leader.” Yes, lets try to get money everywhere else before we try to get from the people who have money.

    • If he could just find smart people to tell him what to do, instead of the greedy corrupt idiots he has surrounded himself with, he could be a half decent president (by literally doing what smart people tell him to do, not through any core competency or anything.)

      • Toomush_Inferesistance

    Oru Dear Lord Dampnut did not even know what the fuck NAFTA was, and he does not even know north from south. He had been harping about gutting NAFTA for years and he does not know how it fucking works. He does not know what the Nuclear Triad is, he does not know what MAD is.

    In the future, if there is one, this little episode of history will be studied, for just how the hell did we let it happen.

    • Alexander Stallwitz

      I think all he knew was Bill Clinton signed it into law so ergo it was a bad deal

      • bupkus231

        Yeah, after the GHWB admin did the heavy lifting of negotiating it. Of course, today’s GOP wants to deny that yesterday’s GOP did any such thing.

    • Opalescent Riddles

      He doesn’t know what it is, but he “knows” that if he wasn’t part of the deal, then he can do better by “renegotiating.” Classic Dunning-Kruger arrogance.

      The problem is, he’s only ever had to negotiate to enrich himself. In that scenario, it’s OK to throw others under the bus. It is QUITE different to negotiate something that actually benefits whole populations of other people.

    Oh, good. What the VA needed was another level of bureaucracy, not a shit ton of money to overhaul antiquated systems and make sure they can hire and retain more qualified and competent people.

    I’m not knocking the VA here as it had been chronically underfunded and understaffed since pretty much forever. FFS, the main appointment system is still being done on the same computer system that was rolled out in the 80’s. Buildings are collapsing under the weight of paper records. Another layer of bureaucracy is not going to fix that.

    You know he was thinking: “After all, if a black guy could do it…”

    • TundraGrifter

      The classic definition of an expert is somebody who makes a very difficult job look easy.

      • Bub, Zombie of the Resistance

        The corollary to that is that an idiot makes an easy job look hard. Like perhaps, let’s see…going bankrupt in the casino business when everyone else is making money hand over fist?

          • Opalescent Riddles

            It’s even worse when you realize that his negative performance was probably factored into that index, and it would have been higher without him.

      My kingdom for one person to say “Oh yes, aren’t those the swing states where Republican legislatures illegally shut out Hillary voters?”

    • Ghenghis McCann

      Whatever he did in his past life, it must have been bad to account for him being reincarnated as Donald Trump

    • Longstreet63

      It does smack of the middle aged loser bringing up how he won the big game back in high school.

    I hope Joe and Mika film the make up sex. It could be a big money maker for them.

    “President Donald Trump has a new Twitter feud and not with a specific person but the island officials of Puerto Rico.

    On Wednesday night, Trump tweeted, “Democrats are trying to bail out insurance companies from disastrous #ObamaCare, and Puerto Rico with your tax dollars. Sad!” He continued his rant the next day and tweeted, “The Democrats want to shut government if we don’t bail out Puerto Rico and give billions to their insurance companies for OCare failure. NO!”

    Why should we have to help out some island somewhere in the Pacific??

      Well, if we help them out, maybe they won’t be sneaking into the country illegally!

        At that point, we could just call it a boat!

      Puerto Rico is kind of part of the US. Someone should really tell him how that works.

    Since tomorrow is our official one hundred days of fear and loathing, can we please get 2 baby goat videos? I understand its a Saturday and all, but gol-dangit we’ve earned it!

    • Bec Jenn

      Maybe some otters too (oh please). Need all the baby romping and cute overload.

      • VirginiaLady

        Otters be good. Bunnies or hedgehogs are also good.

    • Yr. Gma

      Maybe a Fiona marathon?

      • VirginiaLady

        This too is good. Just looking for a healthier way to deal with this creeping depression. I ate BBQ chicken, cheese grits, and a piece of banana cream pie for breakfast today. This type of southern tranquilizer can kill a person quick.

  • Shanzgood

    So basically Joe lost his shit because Mika actually spoke words out of her mouth AND didn’t shut up when he interrupted her?

    Asshole.

    • Hairstrike Alpha

      Ya see, a woman is better seen not heard and when the men are speaking it’s your place to quiet down. That’s because something important is being said, not inane babble. By the way, my beer is now empty and I’d love a breakfast sammich…

      • Internet Hitler

        You had to mention your lack of beer and sandwich? Cuck.

    You know why we’re still beating up on republicans? Shoving all the things down their throats? Because they want it. They can’t get enough and they sekritly wish it was Obama still ramming it down their throats. The sick bastards.

    Trump added: “I like to drive. I can’t drive any more.”

    So that’s why he’s at Mar-A-Lago so often. He’s practicing his driving.

    • Carpe Vagenda

      So he keeps a chauffeured limo on call out of consideration for the driver’s kids?

    Mean French lady Marine Le Pen is in trouble
    after the interim head of France’s racist National Party resigned to prepare against charges of ALLEGEDLY denying the holocaust (it’s an actual crime over there).

    That’s because they understand Holocaust Denial is ALWAYS about organizing Nazis.

    • yeah, but do they PUNCH them?

  • Persistent Demme

    Goats are awesome!

    We got our rescue dog “Rookie,” from a lady with goats, (in a “time-out” pen for messing up the house(!)), cats, and dogs.
    He must have spent time with the goats, cause he loves to climb and balance on things.
    He’s always trying to walk on the 4″ back of the couch.
    Cats do this kind of stuff all the time, but dogs?

    I’ve seen the Zapruder film of JFK being shot so many times that I sometimes think “I” was hanging out on the grassy knoll myself. I have to remind myself I was 7 years old and 600 miles away.

    • Yr. Gma

      LOL.

  • Angela Ruzzo

    The VA does need some accountability. There is a VA hospital in my town, and in 1992 a male nurse on the night shift “allegedly” started euthanizing patients. His coworkers reported their suspicions to the Director and asked him to contact the FBI, but the Director did nothing except discipline or demote the whistleblowers. The nurse kept killing patients for several months until a physician went directly to the FBI. The FBI started an investigation and found enough evidence to exhume over a dozen bodies. Even then, the Director did not fire the nurse, he was merely transferred to an area outside patient care. He never was fired, but eventually he quit and went to work in a nearby nursing home, where the death rate suspiciously increased during his shift. I have been told by senior staff at that VA hospital that the Director did nothing because he had instructions from higher up in the VA administration to do nothing. Also, the physician whistleblower was very badly treated after going to the FBI on his own. How do I know this? My mother was one of the patients he “allegedly” murdered.

    • AnnieGetYerFun

      Holy fucking shit, I am so sorry.

      • Angela Ruzzo

        Thank you. We didn’t find out about it until 5 months after she died, when the FBI knocked on my father’s front door and asked him if they could exhume her body. By that time we had come to terms with her death and moved on somewhat, so it wasn’t as upsetting as it might have been.

    • Lord Jim

      Holy fuck. I really can’t even…

    • javadavis

      Term of ‘art’ is ‘reducing the rolls’. How are we supposed to pull all those new kids in to military service.if (1) they can see how hard it is to get care at a VA facility and (2) we have to keep paying for medical care for all those old people who clearly aren’t going out and fighting for new loot for the overlords? I wonder if the nurse got any bonuses for freeing up all those retirement and/or disability dollars to be pocketed by the higher ups?
      This one is a conspiracy theory with a certain amount of statistical backing.

  • hanadora444

    Obama cash grab? Funny how every recent president has left office and then gave speeches for money. But when Obama does it, it’s a horrible scandal. Now, where have I heard stuff like that before? Oh, right, every Republican in the country. And now, apparently, Trevor Noah.

    • timpundit

      Well that’s because in a lot odf late nite comedy..the democrats are the same as the republicans! Just different sides of the same coin!

      It’s lazy research and lazy comedy. It’s why I am not a huge fan of Jon Stewart like I used to be. I blame some of this on him for this ennui among the voters, especially young ones.

  • Shoto

    Preznit Stupid of Orange may dangle the JFK file as another shiny object for an ADHD-challenged MSM. And of course the ADHD-challenged MSM will dutifully chase it around for Dog knows how many news cycles. Meanwhile, the clown dictator horror show continues apace.

    Do any of you guys listen to The Takeaway on PRI? I don’t love the show, and the host LOVES having pro-Trump people on his show (balance, I guess) but today he had this guy on who made me so sad. I mean, the man was so shockingly naive that it pains me to listen to him, but at the same time, I feel sorry for him. I can’t quite figure out why.

    OT, because not everyone visits the overnight thread (where I’ll try to remember to post it again)
    What Unites and Divides Democrats, by Nancy LeTourneau

    …when the message is sent either directly or indirectly that “my issue is more important than yours,” the divide widens. That is what makes the challenge more difficult for Democrats than Republicans. We can’t afford to play a zero-sum game. We have to care about people who aren’t like us because that is the definition of what “liberal” means.

    • javadavis

      I gotta read this one, it sounds like just what I’ve been thinking about the weaknesses of the Dem platform (strengths is it is inclusive, weakness – so many issues, what to tackle first? How to ensure that ‘first issue’ does not bean ‘only issue’…

      • SisterArtemis

        Nancy LeTourneau’s posts are pretty quick to read – she write 3 to 5 a day, I think, every weekday at the Political Animal blog. I find her take on things very good, even when she’s just ‘sploring, not ‘splaining.
