See if you can spot all the lies in Larry ‘Sniffles’ Kudlow’s taped speech, in which he seems to be, um, speeded up so much that the Pandemic is behind him.
Tiger Beat point out the obvious (emphasis mine) that 325M Americans witnessed a crime:
“Secretary of State Mike Pompeo addressed the Republican convention Tuesday from a rooftop in Jerusalem, where he was on a government-paid trip conducting diplomacy — even though State Department employees were expressly told this type of politicking was prohibited. (Had Hillary Clinton done this, Rep. Pompeo would’ve been on her case.) Trump pardoned a man from the White House on television during the convention, and naturalized five others — in conflict with four years of restrictive immigration policies. First lady Melania Trump addressed the convention from the Rose Garden, which she has recently refashioned to her liking.”
“Of course, much of this is improper, and, according to most every straight-faced expert, it’s a violation of the Hatch Act. It’s incumbent upon the news media to point that out. But do you think a single person outside the Beltway gives a hoot about the president politicking from the White House or using the federal government to his political advantage? Do you think any persuadable voter even notices?”
Last night the RNC featured an address from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, speaking live from Jerusalem, committing a 2-fer: that the country’s top diplomat shouldn’t be engaged in campaign politics, or do partisan work while representing the country abroad. Now that is quality multi-tasking!
Again, not gonna lie, didn’t watch it, but I am paying some attention to elements of it. What stands out to me are a couple of stunts from Lord Damp Nut, 1) He pardoned a felon who found Jeebus and B) he attended a
1980s Colors of Benetton Ad Naturalization ceremony being presided over by illegal DHS Secretary Chad Wolf:
Did you catch the beginning of that? It was The Apprentice: White House.
Anyway, I’m sure that Chad Wolf does the naturalization ceremony in the White House as a regular part of his work, amirite, and Lord Damp Nut attends them all, and a film crew just happened to be there, and everywhere Prznint Stupid goes, Hail to the Thief plays as the doors open and a disembodied voice announces his arrival as 300 pounds of hamberders waddles in wearing lifts, and glazed-watches the oath and then reads short bios. Compelling, ain’t it?
We understand that somewhere, his pocket Nazie, Field Marshall Pee-Wee Himmler was wailing and gnashing his teeth.
Sadly, one speaker was scratched from the line-up at the last moment:
“Hours before she was set to speak at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday night, Mary Ann Mendoza took to Twitter and urged her followers to investigate a supposed Jewish plot to enslave the world.”
Also, Junior Mints’ emotional support cougar and VooDoo Priestess Kimmy Guilfoyle did not make a second appearance to sacrifice a virgin or eat a baby or anything like that. A missed opportunity as she is by far the break-out character of this shitshow this season. Wacky neighbor indeed!
What does this parade of Trump Crime Family members, broken toy shoe-kissers, and white power enthusiasts have to do with fixing the vandalism of the Republican Party and getting concussed Americans back on their feet? Absolutely nothing at all. And that’s the whole point. It’s circuses all the way down. Notice that nothing, not one word has been uttered about any policy or goals they want to achieve; it’s just been an extended rant, Festivus without the rest of us.
Overall we give last night’s tent revival a f- minus.*
