    Good evening Nerdy & TOD! 🙂 I’ve been virtually living on Pete Souza’s Instagram since Agent Orange was sworn in! And Good ol’ Pete is up to the task of allowing us to re-live PBO’s presidency (while artfully trolling Agent Orange and his horrible Cabinet/Presidency).

    And on this end, Nerdy has us well covered with up-to-date current events, the good, the bad and the ugly! Thanks again Nerdy for your tireless work here on TOD!

    FLYNN HAS RESIGNED.

    More shoes to drop. Guaranteed.

      Just saw that on MSNBC. Feel like my head cleared.

      First, I hope Flynn’s brought up on charges. Then I hope Pence resigns. Then Conway. SOMETHING must be found on Bannon and Miller, to take them down.

      What say you now, Trump? He’ll say Flynn didn’t want anything negative to be placed on the administration, even though he’d done nothing wrong, so he graciously resigned.

          Great tweets, J’OB! Any one with an ounce of common sense knows that Flynn’s conversation with the Russians was shared with others in Trump’s inner circle–including both Trump and Pence! Flynn is sacrificial offering to protect president Trump and vice-president Pence! Even with Flynn gone, Vladimir Putin will still exercise undue influence Trump’s foreign policy decisions!

            Thanks, nath! And this morning, I saw that Flynn’s already calling himself the “scapegoat,” so you know where that’s headed!

        • February 14, 2017 at 7:46 am

          Given the arrogance of 45, those associated with his campaign/administration, and GOP in general, I find it hard to believe that, rather than mislead anyone about what he was doing, Flynn was probably bragging and getting atta-boys. Of course Pence knew and of course 45 knew.

          • February 14, 2017 at 7:53 am

            I don’t think he’ll make it to 12 months (or maybe that’s wishful thinking). There’s too much chaos going on in the 45 WH. He doesn’t seem to inspire any loyalty (at least not any loyalty that is voluntary), and everyone seems to be about protecting themselves. He doesn’t know what he is doing and, because he has no knowledge of the Constitution, continues to daily dig and deepen holes. Those loopholes that he is using to continue his ties to his businesses will come back to bite him…and his *weekly* jaunts to Mar-a-Lago will be be scrutinized more and more. Rule by decree is not working for him and his frustration will make him more reckless.

        He fell on his sword and took one for the team; many others, like Tillerson and 45 (the fish rots from the head) and Pence knew about all of this and benefitted from it. It is only until the NYT and Wapo kept hammering that they offered up Flynn’s head.

I was hoping you’d see the posts and it could lift you up in these tough times. I really think he’s a totally talented young man!

    Nameless faceless shameless former Christie RWNJ adviser (didn’t catch the name) now on MSNBC already has called the Flynn brouhaha “a distraction.” No, it was a potential violation of the Logan Act and, let’s face it, effin’ treason.

      Well, it’s a distraction from the fact that DT and the Republicans have been violating the Constitution and the laws of the land, and should be removed from office, possibly incarcerated.

    So now that Flynn is out, Bannon — who wants war with China and Iran — is now in charge of US foreign policy.

    Flynn was too busy schmoozing with his Russian oligarch “friends” to actually do his day job…

    Flynn won’t go quietly. He’s a crazy person. He’ll sit at home in his mancave, surrounded by his “I love me” walls bearing military plaques with his just-as-crazy son, and get more and more bitter that not one (the good President) but two (Trump) of his bosses asked him to leave the premises. The increased volume of secrets he knows about our government is probably already in (encrypted) draft form, all set for sending to Putin. He needs to be locked up, sans communication devices. And the intelligence community knows it.

    WHAAAAAAAT????????? Wait, WHAAAAAAT???

    http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2017/02/journalist-says-omarosa-threatened-her-has-dossier-on-her.html

    Somehow Gateway Pundit bloggers showing off their new White House press credentials in a tweet featuring a Pepe the Frog emoji was not the most troubling report about the White House press corps on Monday. A reporter claims that during an argument just outside the Oval Office last week, Omarosa Manigault, Apprentice star turned White House communications official, “physically intimidated” her. She said Manigault also told her that the Trump administration has collected “dossiers” of negative information on her and several other journalists.

    According to the Washington Post, the exchange between Manigualt and April Ryan, American Urban Radio Networks’ White House correspondent, took place outside White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s office. “She stood right in my face like she was going to hit me,” Ryan told the paper. “I said, ‘You better back up.’ … She thought I would be bullied. I won’t be.”

    Post reporter Abby Phillip was one of several people who witnessed the incident. Phillip said she didn’t hear every word, but Ryan told her afterward that she felt Manigault’s behavior was “Secret Serviceable,” meaning it warranted intervention by law enforcement.

    Ryan also said that during the encounter Manigault told her she was one of several African-American journalists whom the White House is keeping dossiers on. “I said, ‘Good for you, good for you, good for you,’” Ryan said.

    When asked to comment on the report, Manigault told the Post via email, “My comment: Fake news!”

    Not to mention that the media is motivated by 45’s attacks on them…Fake News

    Speaking of Fake News, 45 and Company’s claims of fake news only gives ammunition to our adversaries to make the same accusations.

    Ben Rhodes is one of the smartest guys in PBO’s admin among many, many really smart people. He’s doing Tommy Vietor’s podcast today so it should be JUICE-SAY. I’ll post when it becomes available.

    Mexico is ready to hit the U.S. where it hurts: Corn.
    Mexico is one of the top buyers of American corn in the world today. And Mexican senator Armando Rios Piter, who leads a congressional committee on foreign relations, says he will introduce a bill this week where Mexico will buy corn from Brazil and Argentina instead of the United States.
    It’s one of the first signs of potential concrete action from Mexico in response to President Trump’s threats against the country.

    “I’m going to send a bill for the corn that we are buying in the Midwest and…change to Brazil or Argentina,” Rios Piter, 43, told told CNN’s Leyla Santiago on Sunday at an anti-Trump protest in Mexico City.
    He added: It’s a “good way to tell them that this hostile relationship has consequences, hope that it changes.”
