Morning Wonketariat! Here’s some of the things we may be talking about today.

Myeshia Johnson, the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed in action in Niger several weeks ago, spoke this morning about the phone call she received from Donald Trump. Johnson said the call left her, “very upset and hurt; it made me cry even worse… I was very angry at the tone of his voice, and how he said it.

Trump responded late this morning by essentially calling Myeshia Johnson a liar.

Now that the Trump administration has insulted Gold Star Families (AGAIN,) it’s rush-shipping condolence letters to the families of fallen soldiers.

Donnie Jr. was on the Internet, safely throwing stones from his daddy’s glass house, calling FL Dem. Rep. Frederica Wilson a stripper version of Maxine Waters.

An op-ed containing the signature of Donald Trump written in crayon is trying to push the Trump Tax Cuts for the super rich by conveniently forgetting that trickle down economics caused a recession at the end of the 1980s.

Trump is tweeting bullshit about the Republican tax plan to cap 401(k) contributions as a way to offset the revenue loss from cutting corporate taxes. It’s GOOD for you!

Republicans are hoping to strong-arm Democrats into supporting Trump Tax Cuts for the super rich by dredging up old proposals.

Lindsey Graham is hoping to gain the affection of all the youths by pitching a minimum wage increase to a princely $10.10/hour, along with corporate tax cuts. That way all the poors can kiss his feet while they’re digging for change.

Paul Ryan’s tax plan is kicking around the idea that, if you bitch hard enough, he’ll stick a fourth tax bracket on his tax plan. There are currently seven tax brackets; Ryan’s current plan calls for three brackets of 12, 15 and 35 percent.

Chuck Schumer says that the Alexander-Murray healthcare bill has a bipartisan majority of support among Senators, and that it might be in everyone’s best interest to fix at least one of Trump’s fuck ups.

The crooked grasp of Paul Manafort ALLEGEDLY reached all the way to the Podesta Group as Robert Mueller is now investigating the firm for possible violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act for its work with the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine, a Not American non-profit that has Manafort’s cheeto-dusted fingerprints all over it. Is there pizza involved?

Donald Trump is promising almost half-a-million Ameros to pay the legal bills for current and former staffers legal caught up in Trump-Russia, however Trump doesn’t exactly have the best track record when it comes to following through.

Trey Gowdy is getting ready to wave his white flag and decree the House Intelligence Committee can’t find anything in its Trump-Russia investigation, possibly as a result of continued fuckery from Devin Nunes. The recused guy.

Mitch McConnell poked his head out from his shell to defend himself against Steve Bannon, telling Fox News Bannon is a “specialist at nominating people who lose.”

Scott Pruitt seems to have been playing with some fuzzy math the other day when he said the US leads the world in C02 reductions — it’s actually the opposite. WE’RE NUMBER ONE!

Rather than get caught with its dick in an exhaust pipe, the EPA has canceled a discussion on climate change, causing tree hugging science bozos to accuse the EPA of censorship.

ANOTHER grifty, Bible-humping Tea Party asshole who hates hungry children, former Tennessee Rep. Stephen Fincher, will challenge the best bud of big business, Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn for Bob Corker’s Senate seat.

“I made a provocative and rhetorical comment as part of a free-flowing conversation which has been taken completely out of context” is the carefully crafted half-assed defense being used by Georgia State Republican Rep. Betty Price, the wife of former HHS secretary and grifty whackjob, Tom Price, who last week suggested quarantining people suffering from HIV.

A Montana Republican official says she “would have shot” Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs if he had come up to her, like he did to Rep. Greg Gianforte, to ask specific policy questions. Seriously.

11-year-old Ames Mayfield has now been officially kicked out of his den in the Cub Scouts — ALLEGEDLY his punishment for calling out Colorado State Sen. Vicki Marble for her gun fetish.

The CIA is about to conduct some hardcore super secret spy shit in Afghanistan to hunt down suspected Taliban militants.

The World Health Organization has “You’re Fired” Robert Mugabe as a goodwill ambassador after someone realized that’s like appointing Caligula to coach high school sportsball.

The US is apologizing to the head of Indonesia’s military after denying him entry to the US despite being invited by Joint Chiefs chair General Joseph Dunford.

Russian journalist Tatiana Felgenhauer is listed in critical condition after a man broke into a radio station and stabbed her in the neck. Moskvy is a known for her criticism of the Kremlin. Just a normal day in Russia. :(

DC’s Newseum, the museum to the news, is in still in dire financial straits. Full Disclosure: It’s AMAZE-BALLS!

Grumpy old John McCain was yelling at the youths on his lawn about the war again this weekend, griping to reporters about certain unnamed rich kids who beat the draft during Vietnam by getting a doctor to say they had bone spurs.

Next week Laura Ingraham will take over the 10pm EST time slot for Sean Hannity, but Fox News staffers are literally terrified of being forced to work on her show. Happy Halloween!

After accusing a fellow teevee talking head at Fox of rape, Scottie Nell Hughes claims to have been blackballed by virtually all media organizations, which is horrible, because if she can’t get a job, it should be because she’s a rightwing liar, not a whistle-blower.

Some Midwestern moms are apparently confused about the definition of sexual assault, telling the NYTimes, “In my generation, what these girls are going through was never considered assault…It was considered I was stupid and I got embarrassed.” Greatest generation my ass.

Writer, director and fat, old jerk from Hollywood, James Toback, is being accused of playing grabass for decades by multiple women with stories so gross they’ll make your stomach turn.

MRA crybaby Mike Cernovich wussed out of publishing his ALLEGED copy of the “shitty men in media” list which has been ALLEGEDLY floating around media circles for a few days because he needs to finish his homework.

A bunch of late night teevee people were honoring David Letterman at the Kennedy Center last night, but they started acting like Ameri-cants, quoting old dead guys like Mark Twain and saying mean things about Donald Trump.

      It would be nice if they did, but they are just the most visible tip of this disease we have. Whatever is wrong with the country right now will not stop just because they go away. It will help if they do go away and we stop their understudies from stepping into their places.

      • bupkus231

        “…the most visible tip…”

        Like an iceberg of shit, 90% of it is unseen. That 90% is the rest of the Republican Congress, the Rump Cabinet, the Republican Party leadership, and all their donors.

        That still leaves the GOP supporters – so perhaps the “hidden” percentage is something like 98.994% pure shit.

    it’s just amazes me that a guy who whines and whines about how the world is not fair to him can be so blind to the fact he offended the wife of a killed soldier, a soldier who HE put into danger.

    it’s like for all the right-wingers bullshit about proper respect this or that is exactly that…bullshit. they elected a child because i suspect they themselves are mere children.

    Trump could end this easily by simply apologizing in PUBLIC to the wife of LaDavid Johnson. and no, it won’t turn things around for him, but shit, it would be a good starting point. i mean who in the fuck is such an asshole that when YOU offend someone, it’s their fault?!?

    • MynameisBlarney

      You know he is incapable of such.

      • Blackest Noobs

        and maybe i’m off base here, but i see this quality mostly in white guys. not all white guys mind you, just a bit too many times.

        like i think of Trump and then i think of my fuck-all white guy friend. he had totally offended some mutual friends. he basically fucked up that relationship and then made it worse by not apologizing, saying he did nothing really wrong. it took him over 7 months to actually give an apology to the couple but by then it was way too later; the other couple will be cordial with him ( cuz they like his wife, and like hanging with her) but the guy still wants to knock out offender’s lights.

        i try to stay neutral, ive told fuck-all white guy friend you fucked up, but he took too long to fest up. it one of his worst character traits. mine is trying not to take sides, which isn’t always easy to do. i did calm down offended friend saying it’s not worth punching him even though it is.

That they let him get away with all sorts of delinquent behavior allowed him to become the consummate asshole he is today.

    Another one: Once late a night I saw a rerun of a Letterman show from the ’80s where he was giving away a camping trip with Barry White. I thought perhaps I dreamt the whole thing, but nope:

Several post from asshole sites appeared on FB last night because my wingnut bro commented on them and the comments were awful even for asshole sites. It was also horrible how they twisted even the easily provable facts to fit their agenda. Wingnut bro kept yammering about why did the soldier’s mother call the hateful Rep. Wilson, which isn’t even in the realm of sort of might be true reality.

  • Reading comprehension 101:
    From Wonkette:
    “11-year-old Ames Mayfield has now been officially kicked out of the Cub Scouts — ALLEGEDLY his punishment for calling out Colorado State Sen. Vicki Marble for her gun fetish.”

    From the Times article:
    “On Friday, in response to questions about why Ames was removed from the den, the Boy Scouts of America said only that Ames was now in another unit…The Boy Scouts of America and the Denver Area Council are pleased that the family will continue their participation in Scouting”

    Maybe out of the pack but not out of cub scouts altogether….

      • Packs are independently chartered by local organizations as parts of the BSA, meaning that some packs are inevitably full of dicks. And dicks who like to be dicks usually find that they only attract other dicks and their packs usually go under in a couple of years. You know them as the packs who usually let their boys throw rocks at all the other boys at the campouts and somehow get slapped with alcohol violations every time.

        Luckily BSA is pretty large, and most areas have lots of packs in them, so the morale of the story is that the little cub went from a pack full of dicks to a pack full of probably much nicer people.

          30+ years of them making up their own “facts” and no one calling them on it in any serious fashion if they wrap it up in religion.

          30+ years of outrage against the “left”,Of course the problem with outrage is that it is addictive, and like most addictive things you need more and bigger hits of it to get your fix.

          In fact 30+ years of being brainwashed by the people and organizations they were brought up to trust.

    Oregon man blows hand apart – gets charged with assault because one of the pieces hit a cop

    FBI authorities were tracking 26-year-old Jason Schaefer for weeks on the suspicion that he might be violating his parole. When they caught the Portland man buying bomb-making materials, they alerted the local authorities who chased him down. After a brief pursuit, they nabbed him, but as officers approached, he lit a cigarette pack and detonated a small bomb, The Oregonian reports.
    According to the arrest affidavit, an officer at the scene “was hit by the flesh from Schaefer’s mangled left hand.” When he lit the pack of cigarettes, he allegedly told officers, “We’re all dying today,” The Portland Mercury reports. However, the bomb wasn’t quite large enough to kill anybody, just to leave Schaefer mangled.

    all the good will brought by Harvey seems to be crawling back into its shell. there is the change in the promise to provide free school lunches to all students at Harvey affected schools for the 2017-2018 school year which will run out of good will on Dia De Los Muertos. there are still piles of trash everywhere and people are getting secondary infections because they are having respiratory distress and it is compromising their immune systems.

    AND Dan Patrick thinks he needs to bash Speaker Straus’ newly minted interim committee to look at business climate–including all the business we lost because of the bathroom debate and how much business we would have potentially lost. I don’t know why he’s still punching down, but it’s worth mentioning that we did lose over a billion Ameros in conventions and Straus didn’t slam Patrick’s Select Committee on Studying White People’s Tears which has a new name. it’s also worth mentioning that Straus is serious about property taxes which is why instead of putting bullshit artificial caps in place for the whole state (the same bullshit artificial caps in effect for Houston and the rest of Harris Co. which has meant they flood control district is limited to about $120 million per year in projects and the city has no reserve funds) he’s looking at public school finance reform which would actually have a good net effect on everyone’s property taxes. Patrick thinks that’s just too hard.

    Patrick is also punching down at State Sen. Kel Seliger (R – Amarillo)–one of the few moderates in the state senate who actually still votes like a moderate and happens to be my state senators best lege friend. he is A Idiot that I hope is gone in the primary, if not the general.

      Patrick is also a business climate denier.

      • Panika MCD

        he’s also a business boner killer.

    • chortlingdingo

      I wish Dan Patrick would step down. Doesn’t he have a fraud trial coming up?

      • Panika MCD

        no. you’re thinking of Ken Paxton–our AG. Dan Patrick is just awful in all other ways.

        for example: he is now trying to poop on Speaker Straus’ interim committee as if its any of his business what the House should and should not study in the interim.

          Oooh Paxton, that’s right. It is a pretty rotten trio at the top, isn’t it? Abbott, Patrick, and Paxton.

          • Panika MCD

            the top is Abbott, Patrick and Straus (the House Speaker). Straus is pretty badass because our House directly elects the speaker rather than playing leadership gains–that means moderate Rs and Ds can join forces to keep the crazy out of control there.

            Paxton is corrupt. Miller is CRAZY. 2 of the 3 RRC Commissioners have no idea what they are doing (I may have to vote for Christie Craddick this cycle so at least one person who knows what they’re doing sticks around). George P. Bush is about as moderate as his daddy, but needs to stop using his buddies for external audits.

            Smith sucks. Morath is too interested in standardized testing.

    • The Astros won the pennant, too. That’s got to count for something.

      • Panika MCD

        for the Astros fans, it’s been huge. though Chief Acevedo would still please like some gun control legislation.

    Polar bears are my favoritest godless death machines.

    • BrianW

      A video of a polar bear eating Harvey Weinstein (and not throwing up afterwards) might rival “Gangnam Style” for total views. I will admit though, that it would be cruel and unusual for the bear.

    nora almost made me cry this morning. she’s so cute, but we’re rapidly destroying her native environment. and the motherfuckers don’t even care. we have a saying in our house whenever someone leaves a light or tv on – – “polar bears”. probably as close to a prayer as we get.

    and now, this morning’s apocalyptic skyline…

    Where the fuck does the GOP get this idiotic notion that fewer tax brackets are better? I just makes it worse for people who tick up over whatever arbitrary limit they set.
    The best system would not have brackets at all . . . just let the tax rate rise as a continuous function of income.

    Maybe they’re just bad at math?

    Now that the Trump administration has insulted Gold Star Families (AGAIN,) it’s rush-shipping condolence letters to the families of fallen soldiers.

    Lindsey Graham is hoping to gain the affection of all the youths by pitching a minimum wage increase to a princely $10.10/hour, along with corporate tax cuts. That way all the poors can kiss his feet while they’re digging for change.

    Dear Lindsey:

    $10.10 < $15.00.

    Come back with something MUCH BETTER. Until then, go to fuck away.
