A/K/A Three Weeks in the White House

Well, we are three weeks or so into the new administration and it seems as if we can measure the chaos or dysfunction in seven day increments.  The first two weeks of February were particularly “busy” for the White House, the Press Secretary, the news reporters, the political analysts and let’s not forget the Facebook posters and the bloggers (lol).

The highlight or rather the LOW point of this first half of the month was probably Mitch McConnell’s authoritative, paternalistic, demeaning dictum citing Rule 19!  “SHE WAS WARNED, SHE WAS GIVEN AN EXPLANATION. NEVERTHELESS, SHE PERSISTED”.  OMG! The very nerve of her!  Well those words will live on in infamy for quite a while.  When spoken, they have a great cadence.  You will be hearing this mantra from feminists, you will see it emblazoned on tee shirts and baseball caps.  The very MINUTE I heard it, I wanted to design a tee shirt for Cafe Press and make a million dollars. 

But that was only one incident in a cacophony of chaos and crisis;  Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch uneasy with Trump’s Tweet calling Judge James Robert a “so-called judge” was quoted saying that the comments were “disheartening” and “demoralizing”.

Then there was the TOTALLY UNFOUNDED and UNTRUE  remarks by Mr. Trump that the media (newspapers and news reporters) do not report terrorist attacks to the public.  Mr. Trump knows better because he is all about ratings and he knows that disruption and disaster are always bigly news and bring bigly ratings.  So why in the world would ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC overlook and omit such a news opportunity?

In an interview with Bill O’Reilly, Trump again defended Vladimir Putin;  O’Reilly said, “He’s a killer though. Putin’s a killer”.  To which Donald Trump replied, “There are a lot of killers,” Trump replied. “We’ve got a lot of killers. What, do you think our country’s so innocent?”….  After O’Reilly said he did not “know of any government leaders that are killers”, Trump turned to the Iraq war, seeming to equate George W. Bush with Putin, though he did not name the former president.

Who knows what and when?  Yesterday in the late afternoon, Kellyanne Conway appeared on MSNBC and when questioned about Mike Flynn’s position as National Security Advisor, her response was, “Yes, Gen. Flynn does enjoy the full confidence of the president,”.  Within the next hour or so, Sean Spicer, Press Secretary informed the news media that the president was “evaluating the situation”.  And late last evening Mr. Flynn tendered his resignation to the president.  Yet today we have heard that Mike Flynn offered his resignation  because he knew he was a lightening rod and then we heard from Sean Spicer that the president asked for and accepted the Flynn letter of resignation!   So I repeat who knows what and when?

Dinner at Mar-a-Lago with Japan’s Prime Minister turned into yet another bit of drama à la Donald.  Smack dab in the middle of the resort’s public dining room, not only did Mr. Trump take a call on his cell phone, it has also been reported that papers were passed and discussed in plain view of the  dining room’s guests as well as waiters and the piano player.  Oh dear, short memory all around!  Remember it was a waiter who brought Mitt Romney down with recording of his (Romney) offhand remarks about the infamous 40%.  And let’s not forget how horrified every Republican was with the carelessness of Hillary Clinton and her private server.  Note the word private with server and public with the dining room. National security where art thou?

Time for one more faux pas which is my own rather mild term for Kellyanne Conway’s gross error (and in some minds law-breaking ) remark urging the public to “Go buy Ivanka’s clothes”.  And how did Kellyanne get herself into this position?  Her boss tweeted, 

@realDonaldTrump

My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person — always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!10:51 AM – 8 Feb 2017   A father defending his daughter is certainly admirable and okay BUT Mr. Trump should NOT have used the White House Twitter account!  Yes he did in addition to a personal tweet.

Stay tuned….

Newt Gingrich

Newt Gringrich

Did anyone watch the debate between the Republican wannabee Presidents last night?  Apparently Newt Gingrich had something to say about the questions the panel posed.  He scolded Harris  for “trying to get Republicans to fight with each other.”  Yes, why does the evil media want people at a debate to disagree?  He believes the questions asked were meant to set one Republican against another and make everyone look bad so you all will re-elect Barack Obama

That’s just great, what a simple way to get our President re-elected.   Just think the of the money the Democratic Party will save, no campaigning necessary.

And why is it that this kind of paranoia, these crazy accusations and distortions always seem to come from the extreme right wing of the Republican Party

I was rooting around for a conspiracy theory tonight on the internet and look what I found!  A site that proclaims to be the be all end all place to go to read about Obama Conspiracy theories, in fact the title of the blog is Obama Conspiracy Theories.

Gotta give credit where credit is due and this blog has a great post about the latest lawsuit initiated by none other than Orly Taitz and what is she suing and pursuing?  Why she wants to see a certified copy of Obama’s birth certificate.  And I thought this half -ass, half-baked theory had been laid to rest.  Guess the major newspapers are not delivered in Moldova.  Well there’s no reason for me to reconstruct this information, I’m going to re-post it here.

Queen Birther, Lady Liberty or bat-**** crazy, Orly Taitz (pictured right) can still draw a crowd.

Her antics yesterday in Hawaii generated enough traffic at The Fogbow to take the site down, as well as spawn some brief outages here at Obama Conspiracy Theories. The number of visits here doubled from the day before, and what is more significant, “new visitors” achieved pre-long form levels of 50% of total traffic.

Local Honolulu TV station KHON2 even gave a short mention of Taitz on its web site under the “most popular story” section. The station quotes Taitz:

We were able to get to the bottom of Watergate and it’s time to get to the bottom of Obama forgery-gate, or Obama fraud-gate – it’s time,

and Hawaii Deputy Attorney General Jill Nagamine from a letter:

You are seeking disclosure of privileged or other protected matter, and there is no exception that applies to allow disclosure to you.

What better day than today to recap recent Presidential and presidential wannabees’ actions, remarks and general hoo ha all around.

Clinton ended up in the hospital and had some arterial stents put in.

Bush purportedly appears on a billboard asking the country if they miss him yet –uh huh about as much as I miss having a root canal.

Speaking of root canals, I wonder how many dentists sent angry letters and emails to the White House afterPresident Obama likened the popularity of the Bailout Bill to that of having root canal surgery.

Joe the Plumber is no longer supporting McCain because “he’s no public servant”. True Joe, oh wait that’s not your real name and you’re not really a plumber either, are you?

McCain is running against Hayworth, a former talk show host who aligns himself with the tea partyers and accuses McCain of being “just like the Liberals”. Indeed!

Sarah wannabee Palin is campaigning for the sale of her book, John McCain in Arizona and herself as a possible Presidential candidate (oh dear God!).  Now, how in the world does this woman have time to take care of her special needs baby Trig,  oversee the upbringing of Piper and Willow (read Soccer Mom) , be a Grandma to Bristol’s baby and write letters to Track who is overseas, and hell who’s making Todd’s dinner? Oh Yeah, she’s one of us, right?

Former Viper, I mean Veep. Cheney is still running, not for office but off at the mouth. His appearance on Sunday’s This Week was replete with predictable prevarications.

The White House sent Biden out as attack dog and he and Cheney had an informal debate.  It wasn’t really a debate and there wasn’t any winner but interestingly enough both parties are claiming victory – lol.

On the upside of President’s Day, you could get a good deal on a new car, a mattress, kitchen appliances, clothes and bath and body works plus a lot of us had the day off. And I’m sorry that I started typing  so late that by now it’s not actually President’s Day any longer – Oh Well…..
