Drip… Drip… Drip… (Pee Hooker Update)

Little Kremlin-on-the-Potomac

Drip… drip… drip…


It seems that the Russian Pee Hooker story is just gushing with news:

Bloomberg: Flight Records Illuminate Mystery of Trump’s Moscow Nights

“President Donald Trump twice gave James Comey an alibi for why a salacious report about the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow couldn’t be true: He never even spent the night in Russia during that trip, Trump told the former FBI director, according to Comey’s memos about the conversations.

“Yet the broad timeline of Trump’s stay, stretching from Friday, Nov. 8, 2013, through the following Sunday morning, has been widely reported. And it’s substantiated by social media posts that show he slept in Moscow the night before the Miss Universe contest.

“Now, flight records obtained by Bloomberg provide fresh details. Combined with existing accounts and Trump’s own social-media posts, they capture two days that, nearly five years later, loom large in the controversy engulfing the White House and at the heart of the Comey memos, which the Justice Department turned over last week to Congress.”

So… Comrade Prznint lied to the FBI, er, James Comey, didn’t he? And he was mosdef in Moscow when he allegedly watched Russian Pee Hookers, um, Pee on the bed that the Obamas slept in?

Look, in a way we already had it confirmed because Keith Schiller, the Russian Usurper’s body guard testified under oath about being in the Ritz and keeping an eye on Comrade Stupid’s door until it was his own bed time, and who knows that happens next?

You’d grin too

Anyway, the flight records prove that indeed Stupid was in Moscow overnight.

I’ll Wager 500 Quatloos: Dr. Ronnie Isn’t Harriet Miers

Harriet Miers II: Electric Boogaloo

Hey guys, it’s confirmation week in the Fourth Reich and in addition to hawks and torture enthusiasts to lead the State Department and CIA, respectively (as if they are any different?), we also have the opportunity to bet on Harriet Miers II: Electric Boogaloo. I am of course referring to Dr. Ronnie Jackson to head up the VA. As you may recall his hapless predecessor David Shulkin was fired by Tweet (as one does) presumably because he was not selling off the VA to the highest bidder fast enough.

Anyway, Dr. Ronnie is well liked by everyone, but even though he’s an admiral, he’s never led anything larger than a medical practice, so he might be challenged by heading up a department with a budget in the hundreds of BILLIONS of Ameros and 300K+ employees.

Axios:

  • Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), who sits on the VA committee, told The Hill this week that Jackson “doesn’t have the experience you’d think would traditionally be required at the VA.”
  • Sen. Mike Rounds (S.D.), another Republican on the committee, told The Hill that Jackson knows about health care, but “has very limited background in terms of managing groups.”
  • White House Legislative Affairs Director Marc Short pushed back against these criticisms telling me: “Ronny Jackson is a small town kid who went to medical school, volunteered to serve our nation in uniform, has risen all the way up to Admiral, treated wounded soldiers in combat, has a dad who’s a veteran and a son who’s a Navy SEAL, has personally served multiple presidents, and yet members of Congress who have never managed a thing outside of their own congressional office have the audacity to say he’s not qualified before he even has a hearing.”

Mr. Short, as you may have noticed did not address the question of qualifications, but thanks for playing our game. Be sure to take some fabulous parting gifts.

Anyway, before we get too cocky that Dr. Ronnie will meet the same fate as would-be SCOTUS Justice Miers, let’s all remember this is the same administration that somehow managed to get Betsy DeVos & Ben Carson confirmed. This might be a trifecta.

Blue Dogs To The Rescue of the GOP. Again.

“Which dimension am I in today?”

The Hill:

“Two Senate Democrats came out in support on Monday of confirming CIA Director Mike Pompeo as the next secretary of State, giving him a jolt of momentum ahead of vote later this afternoon on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

“Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) said they would vote for Pompeo, becoming the second and third Democrats to announce their support. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) announced her support on Friday.

“They would give Pompeo more than enough votes to win approval on the Senate floor, even if he gets another GOP “no” vote.

“Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is the only Republican expected to vote against him, though Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who is battling brain cancer, is almost certain to miss the vote. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) is also undecided on Pompeo.

“If the Senate’s other 48 Republicans vote “yes,” that would give Pompeo 51 votes with the three Democrats. “

Once again, we are wondering when we will have some Democrats from the Democratic wing of the party.

If you are wondering why we have Schrödinger’s Senator, the physics paradox known in this dimension as Rand Paul, a man from the multiverse where anything is possible including being elected in the 2016 Goat Rodeo and being elected to the Senate or both or neither can happen at the same time or never, illustrating this post, it is because his NO vote is more Democratic than three Dim Senators.

What a world.

BS Barbie Has Had some Work Done

Raw Story: Kellyanne Conway says Melania Trump is ‘superior’ to Michelle Obama

“Melania Trump is such a superior and excellent First Lady,” Kellyanne told TMZ. “This country is so lucky to have her.”

Oh, Jeebus. Superior? Well, at least Bullshit Barbie didn’t call Michelle Obama untermenschen. There’s that.

The Laddie Doth Protest Too Much

Little Kremlin-on-the-Potomac

Preznint Shithole speaks!

We wondered why Comrade Prznint was suddenly being so effusive in praise to the hired help, especially to Mikhail, er, Michael Cohen who famously boasted that he would take a bullet for Comrade Trump, which is the type of loyalty that gives the short-fingered vulgarian a short woody.

Could it be that Jay Goldberg’s reprehensible statement about Cohen not wanting to be a prison bride might have resonated with Trump and he realized that he has a problem?

Mikhail Cohen is under investigation for (alleged) wire fraud, bank fraud, and campaign violations, and is facing years in prison (as a bride or otherwise) and perhaps is thinking about the man who done him wrong. As we noted earlier, it probably doesn’t matter whether or not he flips if the Feds and/or NY AG has all the documentation of (alleged) illegal activities, but it would be fun if he did.

An Update From Possum Hollar

The Race in MO is On!

Let’s turn our attention to the perennial luckiest woman in American Politics*, Sen. Claire McCaskill (Blue Dog – MO).

As you may recall, her opponents have included Republican incumbent and minimum-wage opponent Jim Talent, and Republican legitimate rape apologist Todd Akin, who explained to us that women’s bodies have a way of shutting that all down.

Now McCaskill faces state Attorney General Josh Hawley, who despite his efforts, seems tainted by (alleged) legitimate rapist, bondage enthusiast, auteur nude photographer, and would-be blackmailer Republican Governor Eric Greitens, who is also facing indictment for stealing a valuable mailing list from a charity he heads as part of fundraising for his gubernatorial campaign.

All this in the age of #MeToo.

“Democrats can hardly believe their good fortune at the same time they pounce. They say Hawley’s outrage at Greitens rings empty, accusing him of going easy on a fellow Republican by stopping or stalling other investigations into the governor’s actions for a year, until Greitens became politically toxic. McCaskill’s party is also hammering Hawley for accepting a $50,000 campaign donation from Greitens in 2016.” 

And if that was not enough, we have actual numbers to report: The Kansas City Star tells us that McCaskill is ahead of Hawley 48% to 44%. Possum Hollar, MO approves of Prznint Stupid by a margin of 50% to 44%. This race should have been McCaskill’s retirement announcement, and it looks like she will have 6 more years to undermine the Democrats.

Go figure.

* Or as Tiger Bear put it, ‘She’s a lucky duck’: GOP implodes again for McCaskill
