A Christmas Present From Hucky Boo Boo Sanders, She’s Leaving WH The End Of...

Man, I knew that after the midterms things were going to be different, but they must be climbing the rafters and swinging from the chandeliers at the White House. Everybody is eyeing the exits. Now Sarah Hucky Boo Boo Sanders is supposedly leaving the end of the year — the second time this story has surfaced in the past four months. And Raj Shah is going with her, supposedly. The Independent: Ms Sanders and Mr Shah have not responded to a request for comment from The Independent nor any other media outlets. She did tweet on Wednesday evening about an hour after the CBS News report that she “love[s] her job” and accused the media of not speaking with her about her alleged departure. The 35-year-old Ms Sanders did not, however, directly deny that she would be leaving by the end of 2018. CBS News retorted that it had made “repeated requests” for her comment on the matter. David Cay Johnston, author of The Making of Donald Trump, told BBC News: “Her denial is: ‘I don’t know anything about this.’ She doesn’t say: ‘I’m not leaving’. It’s what we call a non-denial denial”. And who’s on board to replace her or Shah? Nobody knows. “Nobody wants to come in,” a source close to the administration told CBS News. “So they’ve gone through two rounds and now they’re at third tier of people who are just lucking out — battlefield promotion ends up promoting people who aren’t qualified for the position”. Maybe seeing her name in the box marked “Defendant” next to Donald Trump’s was a sobering experience. It would be for most people. In any event, if she does leave now, it would be the smartest thing she could do. Like Hope Hicks, she might be able to swing some corporate job at Fox or the like. If she stays on board the Trumptanic, it is only going to get uglier and lying about doctored video tapes will be the least of what she’ll be remembered for. And as for who’s going to replace her? Want my bet? I bet Anthony Scaramucci. After John Kelly leaves, Scaramucci will return to be the press secretary. Trump loves to recycle people, it’ll be Scaramucci or Lewandowski. Or, here’s a completely mad idea — what about Megyn Kelly?

Conservative Jennifer Rubin Will NOT Tolerate Any Trump Supporter

A large part of one’s progressive bona fides is the belief no respect can be given even for conservatives who have been “never Trumpers” right from the start. Their previous views and writing over the last three decades made Trump inevitable. I do not disagree that they contributed to Trump’s rise. I do not agree we cannot afford some respect to those who have been never Trumpers from the start. Perhaps it is my incessant belief in people’s better angels, perhaps it is my naivety, but I just cannot internalize it. I think those who have been never Trumpers right from the start represent an admirable “psychotic break” into reality. Joe Scarbarough went from being a flame throwing far right-winger to being damn near a moderate. True, he was desperate to get into bed with Mika and she wasn’t about to let that happen with a flame throwing, Trump supporting, right winger. Joe moderated his views long before Trump, again, perhaps Mika caused it. But, I think it matters that it was Joe who came to the middle, not Mika. Watch Nicole Wallace some time on her own show or Rachel’s show. One can viscerally see and feel that Nicole is charging left despite herself. She has hated Trump from the beginning. My view on Wallace has nothing to do with the fact that I’ve got a raging crush on her now that she’s moderated. The Right Wing is a cult and had been long before Trump. People who declared themselves “never Trumpers” from the start have slowly become … well, people. So, to me it actually does matter when a person goes from always Republican to never Trumper, and then from being a never Trumper to a “Never support people who support Trump..” So, having established that we, opps, I meant “I,” can grant some respect to those who have agreed with me about Trump from the start, let’s read her words: From the Washington Post via Daily Kos (which lacks my genius analysis, pffft) For decades now, Republicans have insisted mass murders with semiautomatic weapons are not reflective of a gun problem. I can no longer comprehend how such a ludicrous assertion is remotely acceptable. But in one sense they are right: It’s not merely Republicans’ indulgence of the National Rifle Association that puts Americans’ lives in jeopardy. It is the support and enabling of a president that inspires white nationalist terrorists – and even denies white nationalism is a problem. Please proceed Jen, even if we definitely don’t get the “no longer” support any Trump supporter part, but anyway: In sum, we are awash in hate crimes and white nationalist-inspired mass murders. We have a president whose words inspire and bolster perpetrators of these heinous acts. That makes Trump not only a moral abomination, which no policy outcome can offset, but a threat to national security. Those encouraged by his words in recent years kill more Americans than Islamist terrorists. If that is not justification for bipartisan repudiation of this president and removal from office at the earliest possible moment I don’t know what is. Those who countenance and support this president for his white-grievance mongering are not merely “deplorable” but dangerous. Okay, wait. That is rather impressive. A Republican calling to remove Trump purely on the basis of his race […]
