        Fake pre$ident gambling with American and everybody else’s lives, tweeted :
        “Puerto Rico got 91 Billion Dollars for the hurricane, more money than has ever been gotten for a hurricane before.”
        And “Cannot continue to hurt our Farmers and States with these massive payments, and so little appreciation.”
        Laura Clawson Daily Kos: “Got. Not “is getting.” Not “will get.” But got. Which is false.”
        “In translation, Puerto Rico doesn’t count as part of the whole of the United States, and money to it is theft from the real America.”
        Eh did this thieving miser ever pay up on anything? Where’s the horde of taxpayer gold he counts every night while American hurricane victims are hanging onto their families and their lives, and their dignity. He failed geography in grade school but what did They do?

      Tired of the DEM Bashing by the so called Never Trumpers….they do not get a pass to criticize Dems….they need to go sit in a corner….

      To Rick I’d say, Democrats are acting in good faith, adhering as best they can to the standards we uphold like democracy, equal justice under the law, rule of law, human rights, civil rights, and so many others. Rick Wilson sees that as “holistically terrible at politics”. We saw in PBO someone who was great at governing, winning elections and could comply with the above standards all at the same time. Sorry, Charlie. If you want the party of dirty tricks and lies you have to go somewhere else. Maybe you are still all in for the GOP tactics, just don’t like Trump.

    Robert Reich: “Trump wants Americans to believe that today’s Mob at the Gates consists of immigrants, foreign traders and democratically elected governments that have been our allies for decades or more. Wrong. These days the real Mob at our gates are thugs like Vladimir Putin and other tyrants around the world who are antagonistic toward democratic institutions, intolerant of ethnic minorities, hostile toward the free press and eager to use government to benefit themselves and those who support them.”

    • April 2, 2019 at 1:22 pm

      Reich: “Trump wants us to believe that today’s Rot at the Top are cultural elites, the media and “deep state” bureaucrats.
      But the real Rot at the Top consists of concentrated wealth and power to a degree this nation hasn’t witnessed since the late 19th century. Billionaires, powerful corporations, and Wall Street have gained control over much of our economy and political system, padding their nests with special tax breaks and corporate welfare while holding down the wages of average workers. In this, the rich have been helped by Republicans in Congress and the White House whose guiding ideology seems less capitalism than cronyism, as shown time and again through legislative and regulatory gifts to big pharma, Wall Street, big oil and coal, big agriculture and giant military contractors. America’s true story shouldn’t end with Trump’s authoritarianism and nativism.”

    Bypass mcconnell and putin party on Medicare For All:
    “But the16 bluest states represent almost half of the country’s GDP and 37 percent of its population. Their collective GDP is larger than every other country except for China, making them certainly large enough to support a single-payer program. That’s larger than Sweden, Bahrain, Canada, Cyprus, Finland, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Norway, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom, all of which provide single-payer health coverage to their citizens.”
    -According to Article 1 Section 10 of the Constitution, states can enter into “interstate compacts..”
    -Instead of fighting veto-proof majorities: “we could end the decades of war now if we stop trying to win over and appease leery conservative states and simply doing what RGGI did: create a full on, single-payer, everyone-gets-healthcare-priced-into-their-citizenship, Medicare-for-All system across the states who want it.”

      I hear Turtle Dood had a convo w/ iQ45, complaining about his using healthcare to skaddle daddle his way out of Mueller Report & border to “3 Mexican countries”, etc. Turtle doesn’t wanna touch ACA, after a decade of trying to destroy it. So ungenious iQ45 comes back w/: I’ll create my own healthcare plan, which I’ll produce post-elections! My LOLs almost dropped me outta my chair, had to grab all kleenexes to mop up spewed water. Bloomberg news reporting of this was, to me, hilarious! How can anyone report this BS w/ a straight face? They gave it a try & it was 😂😏😎

        He should be.

        A tiny, tiny part of me holds out hope that rather than lose, he wouldn’t run. But that would be admitting defeat, in advance. He’d rather say the election were rigged.

    On his show tonight, Lawrence is spelling out what was said during today’s presser with trump … where trump said his father was born in Germany (it was his grandfather; father was born in New York), where he said “oranges” twice instead of “origins” as in oranges of the Mueller investigation … Lawrence is having a psychiatrist on next to discuss. Senior trump also had Alzheimer’s.

    Entertainment for vampires and gouls.
    “These are real human beings being abused to satisfy the whims of racist leaders…They think racist cruelty is a winner.”
    Salon just changed their lead photo to something more palatable. Previously their lead photo: “A group of migrants, including many families with small children and babies, were being crammed into a holding pen under the Paso del Norte Bridge in El Paso, Texas. They were exposed to the elements and trapped in what looks very much like a concentration camp. Images of babies crying and small children peering out from behind razor wire spread quickly throughout the news, showcasing yet again the human cost of electing a man with overt white nationalist sympathies to the highest office in the land.”

    -Let’s hear the far right ‘Christians’ deny the sacredness and equality of human life.
    -I want to see the evil russian asset in the WH thrown in jail for his crimes.
