    I look forward to Fridays when it comes to this administration for the simple reason that the weekend offers a reprieve from the corruption that this administration engages in on a daily basis. Kinda like, banks don’t get robbed on the weekend.

    Good Morning TOD!

    I just discovered I’m blocked by Cindy McCain… now to be honest that doesn’t exactly bother me, but I’ve never tweeted her so I’m curious how I can be blocked by her.

      That’s strange, probably you might have liked something that she was opposed to. Six degrees of separation or something like that. I take it as a badge of honor to be blocked by someone. It’s like my wife follows me on Facebook, but I don’t follow her, but she sends me stuff on Facebook anyway that she wants me to read. And I’m like, do I have to read it, and then I put on a big show about having to read it. And if I do read it, she gives me a test on it. Life is filled with battles that you sign up for and that you don’t sign up for. But being married for twenty years I’ve learned that sometimes surrendering is not the same as losing. I think I’ve won every argument my wife and I have had for the last couple of years. And the reason I’ve won is because I’ve surrendered, and she doesn’t like when I surrender because she likes the engagement. She’s the aggressive one and I’m the passive one, and we all know that dealing with someone that is passive and can be mentally draining.

    How does a multi-billion dollar company like AT&T end up in bed with Michael Cohen covered in sleaze and god knows what else? This is AT&T we’re talking about, a conglomerate, a pillar in the world of business. How did they end up in bed with some guy that bought and sold taxi medallions in New York City? I’m almost positive that companies like AT&T employ people whose sole job it is, is to keep them from looking like fools. And I’m also positive that companies like AT&T set aside monies solely for the purposes of funding harebrained ideas that might pan out should the world turn upside down. But my question is how does AT&T not know that Michael Cohen is a fool without equal?

    • May 11, 2018 at 12:35 pm

      I’m puzzled over this, too. It’s doesn’t pass the smell test that they would do some due diligence on Cohen. It would be good to see a timeline of the pending AT&T/Time-Warner merger deal, Trump’s public remarks and their hook-up with Cohen. Maybe it will all add up.

      The Republicon Presidents primarily host white military families. That is their M.O. but only minorities are “dividing” the country by mentioning unequal treatment.

      All the WH bar-b-ques, Easters, 4th of July, Xmas, events hosted by Republicon Presidents you see a sea of white faces with one or two POC and they are always in the background. I think this is what White America hated about President Obama, too many Black, Brown, LGBT families, mixed in with White families. This is a future they could not tolerate.

        If this Attorney talked out of school well then the Attorney would be in big trouble for violating Attorney client privilege I think. I don’t know if it applies here, I don’t know. But what is it with people willing to put their livelihood on the line for Trump?

          I go over to the Orange site to see what they are saying about this. Apparently these women came to this Attorney and he told them that because Schniederman was a powerful man there case would go no where or the “elites” would tear them apart and talked these two woman out of going forward with a case. This slime ball contacted Trump and told him about what these women told him and then the attorney gets a call from Cohen to get all the details. This stinks bigly. This will be “Breaking News” all day. This attorney should lose his license to practice and be investigated.

    I think some of the reasons why some of the journalists have their panties in a bunch about Avenatti is…

    1. He has no phucks left to give
    2. He approaches Dolt45 EXACTLY the way the MSM should have been all this time
    3. He’s getting the shyt that THEY, if they were actually investigating, should have gotten

    We had that story back when that got out about Dolt45 asking Willard

    And, NONE of these MSM Muthaphuckas thought..
    ” Hmmmmm, maybe I should investigate that?’


    NOBODY but USA Today and Maddow even consistently asked ,
    “Hey, what the phuck did you do with the $100+ million you took in for the Inauguration?’

    We got that report of the ‘ friend’ of Melania that got TWENTY-FIVE/TWENTY-SIX MILLION of the Inauguration Monies, and NOBODY, besides USA Today and Maddow have asked WHY?

    They are mad because Avenatti is doing the job THEY should have been doing all along.

    As I think about the “mocking of John McCain” issue being debated endlessly in the last 24 hours, it strikes me as odd that this is really even a big story. Trump has said far worse about him, with zero consequences.
    I respect John McCain’s service both in the military, and to the people of Arizona. I appreciate his attempting to swat down lies about Barack Obama during the 2008 town hall, and for his NO vote during the health care votes of last year…but….those shining moments do not erase the other things that I keep remembering about the man.
    I’m old enough to remember him voting against the establishment of MLK day, “bomb, bomb Iran”, his negative ads about then Senator Obama, and just now I was thinking about the opposition to a possible Secretary of State Susan Rice. BENGHAZI !!
    There are so so many, many issues there through the years.
    I wish him a speedy recovery from his horrible diagnosis, but must we canonize him?

        May 11, 2018 at 4:37 pm

        I have very similar thoughts to yours. Totally against all of trump’s comments about him, and those of his staffer this week, but McCain is NOT saintly or perfect. Even before some of what you mentioned occurred, I’ll never forget the look on his face in a videotaped Senate hearing I saw once when a family member of a POW-MIA individual – who was part of a group promoting efforts to find out more information on their loved ones, still missing – dared to question McCain about something he said. He literally got up from his seat, pacing back and forth with the most hateful scowl on his face I think I’ve ever seen on anybody’s face. After I saw that, I wondered how he acted around his own family members. He tried to hide his demons from the general public, but he had ’em. Maybe if I’d been tortured in my life, I’d be just as imperfect as he seems, I will grant him that.

        • May 11, 2018 at 6:03 pm

          Agree with what you both are saying. McCain has a real deep mean streak. His arrogance sometimes got the better of him. The only reason he voted against the GOP health reform was because it wasn’t regular order. Then he went ahead and voted with his party on some of the damage. I disagree with his politics nearly every step of the way. And his daughter is just too sanctimonious for her own good.

          I wish no harm to this family. But this ongoing drumbeat of lionizing his every minute isn’t quite the whole truth.

        Can’t force myself to watch this … but I actually found the video of the hearing. Not sure if I recalled McCain’s actions right, but I’m going off to eat some chocolate and get myself calmed down! I found his badgering of this woman to be despicable.

Most of the pacific countries have no understanding as to why trump & the GOP want to turn their backs on our world. Then we see the harm they do to the US and are thankful to be where we are. Keep hoping enough folks see the light. take care over there.
