Trump Insults George Conway, Digital Director Lies, and Family Feud Escalates

This isn’t right, but it isn’t surprising either. Brad Parscale, one of Trump’s digital media directors, lies about George Conway “desperately wanting” a job from Trump, and Trump chimes in “total loser,” a sophomoric insult on top of a lie. Sounds like vintage Trump administration so far. A total loser! https://t.co/vm3Vv2f9jf — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 19, 2019 It also didn’t happen that way. George Conway was offered a job in the Justice Department and he turned it down, in 2017. “I am profoundly grateful to the President and to the attorney general for selecting me to serve in the Department of Justice. I have reluctantly concluded, however, that, for me and my family, this is not the right time for me to leave the private sector and take on a new role in the federal government,” he said in a statement.”Kellyanne and I continue to support the President and his administration, and I look forward to doing so in whatever way I can from outside the government,” he added. Conway, however, was not to be outdone, and this was his reply. Congratulations! You just guaranteed that millions of more people are going to learn about narcissistic personality disorder and malignant narcissism! Great job! https://t.co/Dk9bI3sBs7 — George Conway (@gtconway3d) March 19, 2019 This was the article that first got me to really understand you, @realDonaldTrump. Once someone understands narcissistic personality disorder, they understand you—and why you’re unfit and incompetent for the esteemed office you temporarily hold.https://t.co/5RPQL9xntA — George Conway (@gtconway3d) March 19, 2019 As stated before, what I wouldn’t give to be a fly on the wall of the Conway kitchen.

GOP Senator Proposes Senate Adopt Nuclear Option In Order To Pass Trump’s $5Bil Wall...

Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) must have had a late night with the milk and cookies to come up with this brainstorm. Or, maybe Putin inspired Daines when he visited Moscow last July 4. Roll Call: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has long said the support does not exist for extending the simple-majority threshold to limit debate to the legislative calendar, and back in January a senior Senate GOP aide said the votes did not exist within the Republican Conference for such a move. The “nuclear option” is so named because it involves having a majority of senators change Senate precedents in order to effectively change the rules without the two-thirds that would be required to invoke cloture on changes to the standing rules themselves. Even though it is beyond a long shot, President Donald Trump himself has pushed for the setting of a simple-majority threshold, and there should be every expectation that he could again on Friday. If you can’t get your way, just figure out a way to cheat and rig the rules. Sounds Republican to me! Seriously, Daines ought to take a look out his window, and maybe talk to some of the other prairie dogs. The other Senator in his state is a Democrat and so is the Governor. This might not be the best idea Daines has had. And what’s comical, is that he’s assuming that Corker and Flake will vote how he wants them to. Ask the Democrats about that, they’ve got a lot of experience along that line. Good luck even finding the 51! Mark my words, that tweet is not going to age well.

Both Mick Mulvaney and Fox News Want Alex Acosta Gone. Isn’t that interesting?

Donald Trump vowed to drain the swamp but instead brought the sewer. The sewer contains rats, which continually turn on one another, and today, it looks like Mick Mulvaney is out to gut Alex Acosta, because it’s in his interests to do so. Politico: Mulvaney told Trump on Monday that the continuing drip of damaging information surrounding the 2008 agreement Acosta struck to keep billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein from a heavy jail sentence would hurt the administration, according to two people familiar with the conversation. Mulvaney also may be seizing on an opportunity to try to depose a frequent antagonist who has frustrated some conservatives in the White House and business leaders on the outside. Acosta critics, including Mulvaney, have argued that he has not been aggressive enough in stamping out Obama-era workplace regulations and employment discrimination lawsuits, and they are using the Epstein lawsuit to push him out the door. As the British Ambassador said, “The knife fights are real.” Going along with this thought, guess who has thrown out a challenge to Donald Trump on this issue? Fox News is not only out to get Acosta, a host named Melissa Francis actually took Trump to task for praising Epstein in the past. Francis called Trump’s quote “horrifying.” Oh my ears and whiskers, what is this all about? Here’s what she said: “Obviously, there are these older comments surfacing that have been everywhere, of him saying that they both liked women, comments that have been requoted and are horrifying in the light of day now given what’s going on with Epstein.” “Trying to put on the record, I guess it was, that they had some huge falling out and they haven’t been friends 15 years. I don’t know why he would address this at all, especially in this setting. It seems unwise.” “But I don’t know that this was the right place or time or way to try and clean that up. Especially when you’re connecting it with Acosta. There needs to be a massive investigation into what happened there and if there was corruption afoot.” My prediction? Acosta is toast — and well he should be, not because of his political enemies in Washington or because Fox News has inexplicably decided to play their hand this way. Why that is taking place is a story yet to be told. You recall on Sunday, Trump went into a Twitter meltdown saying that Fox weekend anchors were as “boring as CNN” and that Fox “forgot who got them there.” Consensus is that it was Fox’s Epstein/Acosta coverage that so incensed Trump. Apparently, Fox wasn’t sufficiently rattled by Trump’s ire to change their narrative to something Trump might find more pleasing. They’re still on the dump Acosta train. If you want to place bets, the smart money would be Acosta leaving sooner rather than later.
