Horse’s Hiney Got Played By Bigger Horse’s Hiney

Pence is the one on the right.

As we noted yesterday, walking termite buffet Mike Pence was sent out to mop up another set of lies, and well, ended up getting burned:

Slate:

On Monday, President Trump did his chauvinist best to haul immigration back into the minds of voters ahead of the midterms by adding a dollop of (100 percent unconfirmed) terrorism. “Sadly, it looks like Mexico’s Police and Military are unable to stop the Caravan heading to the Southern Border of the United States,” Trump tweeted. “Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in.” It is ludicrous claim. But it’s one that Trump held onto, refusing to budge, for a full day and change. The president even challenged a reporter to “take your camera, go in the middle and search” the caravan, before admitting, of course, he was full of it. “There’s no proof of anything. But there could very well be,” Trump said of the “Middle Easterners” claim in the Oval Office Tuesday afternoon. “They say it happens all the time from the Middle East.”

And we note that the WaPo’s spidy senses are tingling: ‘In the service of whim’: Officials scramble to make Trump’s false assertions real

“The mystery tax cut is only the latest instance of the federal government scrambling to reverse-engineer policies to meet Trump’s sudden public promises — or to search for evidence buttressing his conspiracy theories and falsehoods.

“The Pentagon leaped into action to both hold a military parade and launch a ‘Space Force’ on the president’s whims. The Commerce Department moved to create a plan for auto tariffs after Trump angrily threatened to impose them.

“And just this week, Vice President Pence, the Department of Homeland Security and the White House all rushed to try to back up Trump’s unsupported claim that ‘unknown Middle Easterners’ were part of a migrant caravan in Central America — only to have the president admit late Tuesday that there was no proof at all.”

So now the VP, DHS, and the entire apparatus of the US gubmint then springs into action to attempt to prove that the president of the united states is not a liar. And now all of ’em have lost their credibility. We are a banana republic now.

This is nothing less than proof that for Prznint Stupid that indeed l’etat c’est moi.

13 days till the election people, make it count.

    Caligula once declared war on the god Neptune and sent legions to the coast to do battle. They returned triumphantly to Rome and dumped out chests of sea shells onto the palace floor to show to their delighted Emperor. Fox News should have been there.

      So, if I understand this story, by the time the legions returned from their day at the beach Caligula was still holding the same idea about warring on Neptune.
      Huh. I don’t think Donnie T. would be able to keep that focus. Pretty sad that he’s crazier than Caligula. Wasn’t he the one that put a horse in his senate? And all Donnie T has is that horse’s ass. And a bunch of other horses’ asses.

  5. The aide said that guys like me were ‘in what we call the reality-based community,’ which he defined as people who ‘believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.’ […] ‘That’s not the way the world really works anymore,’ he continued. ‘We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do’

    Shrub’s Administration built this weapon, and now they left it lying around like a loaded handgun for a 2-year-old to find and shoot up the place.

    And now, every time the 2-year-old does this, they carefully reload it and put it back. The [spit] ‘adults’ in the room….
