If we can get our hands free to type from the constant facepalming, we should be able to post on this topic.

Continuation of the previous thread:

Huckleberry is apparently to be the new Press Secretary. She's given over this briefing to Scaramucci, it seems, to allow him to 'get to know' the press.

Well... it's the first one in nearly a month we can watch. He talks the talk that's for sure

cozietoesie · 21/07/2017 19:57

He's not been asked any real questions though. Smile

Melissa Spicer was sacked? Retired? Resigned?

A tribute.

cozietoesie · 21/07/2017 20:02

All of those, I guess, Lweji. Wink

I guess Melissa McCarthy will have to reprise the character for one last time

She's already said goodbye to her character a while ago. SNL is prescient. (and Spicer had it coming for a while)

cozietoesie · 21/07/2017 20:18


Oh - and talking about having it coming?

Microsoft takes on the hackers

Ah, don't mess with the Gates. Nice.

Still, it's reactive rather than really protective.

Lweji · 21/07/2017 20:33

Sorry, should have read the last paragraph of the story before posting. Still...

I don't think that Rick Wilson is much of a fan.

When will Republicans learn......

This bit stood out cozie

Their legitimate fear of their constituents was greater—finally—than their fear of Trump.

I have covered a lot of marches and protests in my life -- footage of this one is still astonishing to me.

Russian minister suggests other Trump, Putin talks

Does anyone think the "Maybe they went to the toilet together," was a deliberate poke?

OnTheDarkSideOfTheSpoon · 21/07/2017 21:51

Whoops, if I'd watched the discussion afterwards I'd have seen that some people do think that Blush

cozietoesie · 22/07/2017 01:08

I don't actually have a problem with a theoretical POTUS meeting with/calling a theoretical Russian president. What troubles me is 45 meeting alone with Putin.

TheClaws · 22/07/2017 01:30

He looks so happy. As I would be! Scaramucci looks very slick, though, but in a bad way, like something you can't get off the bottom of your shoe.

No, Trump can't pardon himself. Read our Washington Post op-ed to learn why:

Why doesn't Trump just move the whole board of Goldman Sachs into the second floor of the White House? He could probably get a deal on the furniture move and it would save time.

To think that people were criticizing Hillary Clinton for being in bed with Wall Street.

'The Mooch' uses the word 'effective' in nearly every sentence and said that Trump is the most 'effective' communicator in the White House and he really likes how he uses social media to link with regular Americans. I'm not surprised Spicer quit, if I had to work with that attitude I'd be pulling out my hair and eating it within a week.

This came up on my facebook feed today.

Trumpian Rhapsody (Ray Cochrane)

Is this the Fox life?
Is this just NBC?
Caught up in a fake news,
An escape from reality.

Open your eyes,
Look up in my eyes and see,
I’m not a poor boy, I have no empathy,
Because it’s money come, morals go,
Little lie, little low,
Any way my hair blows really, really matters to me, to me.

Mama, just fired a man,
Putin’s gun against my head,
Pulled his trigger, now I’m red.
The sell off has just begun,
But now Jnr's gone and colluded it away.

Taxes, great,
Didn't mean to tell a lie,
If there’s no wall this time tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters.

Too late, my time has come,
Get lawyers on the line,
Money making all the time.
Golf time, everybody, I've got to go,
Gotta leave you all behind and face the course.

Macron, ooh (any way he hand holds),
I don't wanna lie,
I sometimes wish I'd never had Donny at all.

I see a little shrubbery see a man,
Scaramucci, Scaramucci, will you do the samethingo?
Sarah Sanders’ starting,
Spicer is departing see.
(Trumpineo) So they say go.
(Trumpineo) he said go go,
Trumpineo fire go
Spicer go-o-o-o-go.

He’s just a poor boy, nobody loved him.
He's just a lie boy for a comb over,
Spared now his life from that monstrosity.

Easy truth, easy lie, he did it on the go
Covfefe! YES, we will let you go. (Let him go!)
Covfefe! We will let Comey go. (Let him go!)
Covfefe! We want Mueller to go. (Let him go!)
Yes, we will let them go. (Let them go!)
Never Sessions (recused, recused, recused, recused let him go)
Great great great oh
Ho, ho, grab, grab, grab, lie, ho
Oh, Melan ia, Melan ia (Melan ia, lets me ho.)
Trumpebub has a law put aside you’ll see, you’ll see, you’ll see.

So you think I can’t meet Ruskis who spit in my eye?
So you think Don Junior would leave me to die?
My baby, won't do this to me, baby,
Just gotta lie more, just gotta lie right outta here.

(Like, soo great, sooo great)

Money really matters,
Anyone can see,
Money really matters,
Money really matters to me.

Any way my hair blows.
