Cartman in the Oval Office

Update Thank you to Adam for finding live footage of Trump’s current Cabinet meeting:

I Am So Fucking Sick of This Shit

This is not a complicated case. Some asshole used his companies resources to post a bunch of pseudo-scientific bullshit demeaning and insulting half the employees, and google fired him. That is it.

This is not a fucking free speech issue, this is not an example of poor aggrieved wingers being shat on by the man, etc. It’s actually the opposite. It was the people who normally run shit crapping over others, again. The same shit that happens daily to women all over the country, just this time some white penis paid the price. Normally they get promoted.

The way Republicans and wingnuts always successfully make everything into victimhood and successfully parlay it into political gains makes me want to fucking break shit. I fucking hate these people.

This is Not Normal

The fact that the GOP’s Cheeto Jeebus issued a series of tweets about an apparently new transgender policy (but not really, since there is no policy) has been discussed, but a couple quick things:

A.) They are not your fucking generals, you orange shitstain. None of this is yours, you anal drip, it’s OURS.

B.) While you are talking to your fucking generals, how ’bout that plan to defeat ISIS you kept talking about having ready in thirty days, cuz we’re still waiting for that shitshow.

C.) You did no consultation at all, and everyone knows that bible thumping fetus fetishist, rampant homophobe, mother of a modern HIV crisis, all around know-nothing bigot, and Grand Mullah of the American Taliban Mike Pence was doing it behind the scenes, and I guaran-fucking-tee that the first you heard of this was when it was mentioned to you in passing this morning and three minutes later your tiny little dickbeaters were pounding out this nonsense on what I am fucking also sure is an unsecured phone.

D.) They had no intention for you to go live with it so that is why there was a nine minute delay between your first tweet and the subsequent two, at which point they debated for a few minutes and decided “fuck it, it’s too late now, AND WHO THE FUCK TOLD HIM?” and parts two and three came out:

E.) And since you are a fucking clueless douchecanoe who has no idea how to govern and didn’t ACTUALLY consult with OUR generals about this, this fucking happened:

The Department of Defense referred all questions to President Trump’s administration. “We will continue to work closely with the White House to address the new guidance provided by the Commander-in-Chief on transgender individuals serving the military. We will provide revised guidance to the Department in the near future,” said Naval Capt. Jeff Davis, the director of defense press operations.

At the Pentagon, the first of the three tweets raised fears that the president was getting ready to announce strikes on North Korea or some other military action. Many said they were left in suspense for nine minutes, the time between the first and second tweet. Only after the second tweet did military officials receive the news the president was announcing a personnel change on Twitter.

Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis is on vacation this week, and defense officials said Mattis knew that Trump was considering the policy change. It is unclear if he approved it.

Fuck every single person who voted for Trump.

Monday Evening Open Thread: Gathering the Ghouls

They really don’t care. If they can’t be arsed to provide a halfway plausible cover story for whatever pile of manure they’ll present as a bill tomorrow, why should they worry about coming across as second-time-as-farce?

[9 July 2008] – The cancer-stricken Democratic senator Edward Kennedy made a dramatic return to Congress today, providing the boost needed to pass a bill securing healthcare coverage for senior citizens.

Kennedy, 76, was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour in May after suffering a seizure at his home on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The youngest brother of John and Robert F Kennedy, a revered figure in US politics, was not expected to return to Washington until September.

But Kennedy made an unexpected appearance on Capitol Hill as Democrats prepared to vote on a plan that shores up Medicare, the country’s government-run programme for senior citizens’ healthcare…

Apart from [facepalm]-ing, what’s on the agenda for the evening?

Open Thread: Mitch McConnell, Master of… Disaster

Impeach Earl Warren! always did fire up the base — back in the 1960s. Those voters can’t all have died of old age yet, right?

(Ah, yes, the John Birch Society, of which the Kochs’ father was a founding member.)

How About “Fuck You Right in the Eye?”

This fucking asshat:

WikiLeaks suggested on Sunday that its founder, Julian Assange, should lead the U.S.-Russian cyber security unit after President Trump announced the idea on Twitter.

“Why not put @JulianAssange in charge of it? He’s trusted by the public and has the CIA’s best stuff anyway,” WikiLeaks tweeted, replying to Trump’s tweet announcing he and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed the idea.

Nice mullet. Go eat a bag of e-dicks in your embassy broom closet.

Open Thread: He Wants to Be the Villain in A Hit Bruce Springsteen Song

When you’re as thirsty as Crispie Christie, even negative attention is better than no attention at all…

Gov. Chris Christie joined his family at a state-owned retreat in Island Beach State Park on Saturday night, less than 24 hours after ordering the closure of all state parks and beaches because of the budget impasse in Trenton.

The governor addressed members of the Legislature about the stalemate on Saturday and then left the capital for the park, a spokesman confirmed Sunday morning.

Christie, his wife, his children and their guests have the run of the 10-mile barrier island, where police are turning away all others visitors over the long holiday weekend.

During a news conference in Trenton, Christie said it was his right to stay in the park even if no one else can visit.

“That’s because the governor has a residence at Island Beach. Others don’t,” Christie said on Saturday, the first day of the state shutdown. “It’s just the way it goes. Run for governor and then you can have the residence.”…

The property is guarded by state police, who are not subject to the shutdown order. The governor has a personal security detail that follows him everywhere he goes….

As they say in Asbury Park: Christ, what an asshole.
