Happy Hour News Briefs
This was enough to gag a maggot…
Rep. Kevin McCarthy really knows how to brown nose, if not indeed french kiss Comrade Stupid’s ass:
“[Trump and McCarthy] were alone in the presidential suite on Air Force One, flying east toward Washington in early October, when the president reached for a handful of Starbursts…”
“But instead of unwrapping all the treats, the president was careful to pluck out and eat two flavors: cherry and strawberry, McCarthy noticed. ‘We’re there, having a little dessert, and he offers me some,’ McCarthy recalled in an interview. ‘Just the red and the pink…'”
“Days later, … [McCarthy] bought a plentiful supply of Starbursts and asked a staffer to sort through the pile, placing only those two flavors in a jar.
McCarthy made sure his name was on the side of the gift, which was delivered to a grinning Trump, according to a White House official.”
Courtesans gotta court, amiright?
Or, “$20, same as in town.”
