Careful what you wish for, boys.

“Who’s on first. What’s on second.” “I don’t know!” “Third base.”   abbot and Costello It’s little wonder that President Trump is sarcastically referred to as The Pampers President, since these days being a Republican seems to entail acting like a two year old. Meaning, they spend all day screaming for something, and when Mama finally gives it to them, they throw it in the corner, and scream for something else instead. The GOP spent 8 years running monolithically on repealing the scourge of the American healthcare system, the Affordable Care Act, with its dreaded “death panels.” But now, fueled by a DOJ decision not to defend the law in court in a lawsuit, the GOP is approaching an even money that they finally get their wish. And instead of celebrating, the GOP is freaking out like a teen whose parents return hoe early to a toga party in the living room. Back in March, jealous of the Democratic success on running on healthcare in 2018, and fearful of what it could portend in 2020, Trump once again raised the Ghost of Stupid Past, proudly proclaiming that the GOP would once again be re-branded as “the party of healthcare,” by passing a massive reform bill that would be , “bigger, better, and cheaper.” It too Senate Majority Leader Yertl McTurtle all of about 30 seconds to piss in that punch bowl by proclaiming that the Senate had no intention of even considering any significant healthcare legislation ahead of the 2020 election. That was back in March, when the lawsuit was still widely seen as a long shot Hail Mary pass. But now, with the suit apparently steaming towards a showdown in the Supreme Court, with the reel specter that “Brewski” Brett Kavanaugh may finally pay dividends, the GOP is in a panic. Up until now, on more “socially” related issues, Chief Justice John Roberts has reluctantly sided with the liberals on the court, providing a speed brake on Kavanaugh. But on this issue, which could be repaired legislatively, it is possible that Roberts may finally decide to let Trump pay the piper for his craven stupidity. Now senior Senate Republicans are reacting like a drunk from Topeka who suddenly wakes up in  cheap motel room in Sao Paolo. GOP Senator Lamar Alexander, who is copping a life raft off of the Trump death cruise next November is even talking about the possibility of reforming healthcare costs, and even Mitch McConnell is trading in his rendition of “Na-na-na-na,Hey,hey! Goodbye!” for a rousing chorus of “Kumbaya.” “I think the important thing for the public to know is there’s nobody in the Senate not in favor of covering pre-existing conditions. We would act quickly on a bipartisan basis to restore” those protections if struck down by the courts Every husband who has ever had a wife bitch him out about his gambling knows that this is exactly what she sounds like when he comes home and proudly displays the ten grand he just made at the track. The first thing he’s gonna have to spring for is a neck brace for her sudden case of whiplash. Such it is now for McConnell. Forget Trump, this is a nightmare scenario for the GOP, and a shining testament to their own stupidity. They ran for 8 years on repealing Obamacare without attempting to craft a […]

Trump Parrots Lunatic “Bleach Cleansing” Theory Provided by Florida Scammer

Donald Trump has never had an original thought in his life. This includes his “bleach cleansing” theory that shocked, horrified and amused the world. Where did this one come from? Primarily from Mark Grenon, a con artist who runs a “church” in Florida called Genesis II. Grenon’s little grifter organization has long touted chlorine dioxide — bleach — as a “miracle cure” for everything from carbuncles to malaria, HIV/AIDS and autism. Grenon knows there is one way to get Trump’s interest: abject flattery. Grenon and his church have been peppering Trump with letters touting bleach as the cure for COVID-19. Grenon wrote to Trump that bleach is “a wonderful detox that can kill 99% of the pathogens in the body” and “can rid the body of Covid-19.” Days after Trump received the letter, he went on television and touted bleach as a possible cure for the virus. Genesis II sells what they call MMS, “Miracle Mineral Solution.” Since the first headlines about the Coronavirus outgreak, Grenon and his fellow trolls have been hawking bleach as a viral cure, advising everyone to mix a few drops of bleach in water and drink it. They push MMS, which contains not only bleach, but sodium chlorite, a chemical used in waste-water treatment and industrial fracking. On April 19, Grenon took to the airwaves with his weekly radio harangue to read the letter he wrote to Trumo. He also said about 30 of his supporters have written letters to Trump touting MMS as a cure. When Trump told his television audience that doctors should consider having patients inject bleach into their lungs to cure the virus, Grenon stormed Facebook to claim: “Trump has got the MMS and all the info!!! Things are happening folks! Lord help others to see the Truth!” This was an about-face in the fortunes of Grenon’s organization: in mid-April, the the US Food and Drug Administration obtained a federal court order barring it from selling what it called “An unproven and potentially harmful treatment for Covid-19.” The FDA also ordered a Genesis II follower, Kerri Rivera, to remove claims that MMS cured coronavirus from her website. The FDA warned Americans in August 2019 not to buy or drink MMS, calling it a “dangerous bleach which has caused serious and potentially life-threatening side effects.” The White House refused to respond to requests by British reporters for The Guardian for clarification on the impact Grenon’s letter may have had on Trump. The Guardian also points out another grifter, former Republican presidential candidate Alan Keyes, who hawks bleach-based products as a “miracle cure” on his online television show. It is unclear whether Trump and Keyes have communicated with one another. Keyes, who like Trump was an infamous promoter of the “birther” conspiracy theory that claimed Barack Obama was born in Kenya, has his show hosted on IAMtv, a far-right Internet-based TV channel. IAMtv’s other anchor, Bob Sisson, has promoted Genesis II and MMS on air. In late 2019, Sisson held up two bottles of Genesis II and proclaimed: “Gonna meet Trump, it’s only a matter of time. President Trump’s gonna invite us up there, when he finds out about this stuff.” Sisson also boasted about meeting then-Kentucky governor Matt Bevin and Tennessee governor Bill Lee, both Republicans.
