      That is absolutely disgusting. So, of course, they’re turning the MAGA thugs into the victims instead of talking with Nathan Phillips who was the victim of bigotry and bullying. How about respecting your elders? How about respecting the Indigenous peoples? How about turning the other cheek if you are being taunted by Black Israelites instead of trading barbs with them?

      I bet that Guthrie is going to ask this jerk a few softball questions and not challenge his conduct. This is truly outrageous.

      Savannah Guthrie was trash all through Obama’s tenure and continues to be so.

        Me, neither.

        One good thing (minor) is that Chris Cuomo totally apologized via twitter for his crap choices this week, without the usual walk-back. Hope he learned something.

        A second good thing I spotted tonight (also minor) is the chyron at the bottom of the screen on Anderson Cooper’s show, which read:

        SHUT-SHOW, Day 32

        I plan to borrow that one.

        Other than that, we must keep speaking up and not allowing these fools to get away with repeating the birtherism stuff; or giving that racistly-harvested kid a break (turns out the WH Counsel went to the same high school – no wonder trump invited “the boys” to the WH), or all the other barbaric, non-human stuff that’s being spewed before us every damn day.

        Also, tomorrow is Indivisible National Call Day. Just a reminder, for those of us interested, to call our Senators and Congressional Rep to “end the shutdown – with no wall funding.” Luckily, all three of mine are Democrats, but I’ll be calling them.

        And good evening to you, meta !!!!

    So will the Today show have Nathan Phillips on their show too?

    those who did not yet know about Speaker NDP should have listened very carefully to what one of her daughters said;

    …… she tried to warn the scumbags;

    …. but they did not listen;

    …. now they will keep paying for their evil corrupt ideas and actions;

    …. and I just keep smiling;

    … what else is a member of Team Pelosi expected to do but smile???? … #SatisfiedCustomer aka #SatisifiedVoter

      What she’s saying is the absolute truth – but do you think the media will cover it? Do you think Kamala Harris’ statement will make the front page of the NYT or the Washington Post or any other major newspaper? That’s the problem. Only those of us paying very close attention ever hear the truth.

    Call both of your senators. Doesn’t matter what party they belong to. Call them every day until the govt. is opened. Let them know that not ONE CENT can go to that wall!!!! My tax dollars need to be put to good use! Like funding the Federal workers that keep us safe! We need to connect the fact that these workers, these AMERICANS, are THE GOVT! If they are working well and getting paid, we are safer and stronger for it! As a nation. Without them, without the govt. workers, we are in danger from all angles, and those that would do us harm, know this. GET THEM BACK TO WORK NOW!

    I read last week that Putin was involved in picking Trump’s cabinet. For example, he didn’t want Romney as Secretary of State. Of course
    Putin wanted his Exxon buddy Tillerson. And he got him installed. Tillerson is the Exxon boss who covered up fossil fuels and global warming starting in the mid-1970’s…so now the Siberian Arctic is melting. And I believe the entire gaggle of Putin sycophants are invested in Siberian Oil.

      I don’t think that Little Jared is up to tackling the US Congress, especially the House. He’s messed up every project he’s been given since Trump became president. I think it’s long past time for Jared and Ivanka to move back to NYC. Oh, and they should take their bevy of Chinese nannies with them. Do the Chinese nannies all have green cards?

    Moscow Trump Tower was to be built by local contractor Rozov:
    “ACCORDING TO A FINALIZED LETTER OF INTENT signed by Donald Trump on Oct. 28, 2015, the tower would have “approximately 250 first class, luxury residential condominiums.” It would be located in Moscow City, a former industrial complex outside of the city center that has since been converted into an ambitious commercial district clustered with several of the tallest skyscrapers in Europe.Its hotel portion would feature “approximately 15 floors” and contain “not fewer than 150 hotel rooms,” the letter of intent stated. The building would feature a luxury spa and fitness center, a commercial component “consistent with the overall luxury level of the Property,” and an office space “consistent with Class A luxury office properties,” as well as “luxury” parking.”
    -And a Putin penthouse atop.

      But he was a “fixer” for trump for years and all of a sudden he’s backing out of testifying. The guy walked around New York city smoking cigars and smiling for the cameras with his associates AFTER he’s indicted, but now he’s not testifying. This isn’t about safety, this is about something else, Cohen has always known the score and he knows how this shit works.

      That was my very first thought, too, meta. And I’m pretty sure she knows it and is frightened to death. They don’t want the spotlights on them, if she’s killed while imprisoned. But if a tree falls on her, on a city street, they’re “in for the kill.” Sad to even think about.

      Please, someone, anyone: HOW can she stop this?!?!?! This is making me want to scream and throw something! Can she stop him? Please, talk me down. He cannot be allowed to do this. HELP!

      On another note: I’ve called my senator’s offices twice today. Once this morning and after learning three more things (one from here), I called back few minutes ago. Also called my reps office because he was one of the 22 R’s that sided with 45 about withdrawing from NATO. I flat out said that is borderline, if not full, treasonous. OH, he’s also the rep that began his time in DC by appearing on Russian TV. Lord help us!

        Speaker of the House, Controls EVERYTHING in the House Representative Chambers. She controls who gets in, the cameras, the lighting, EVERYTHING! The Sargent of Arms will block him from getting inside, NO camera’s will be allowed, NO sound will be allowed, if he tries to enter I pray she arrests his ass for treaspassing and I hope he brings Pence with him so Nancy will be President while the two criminals are in prison.

      You know, in all this furor it would surprise me if at this point Idiot-45 has even (had) written the web of lies that he seems so gung-ho to share. This *admin* doesn’t generally plan ahead so while arguing for a SOTU I bet they’ve forgotten to research and prepare so they’d have something meanngful to share.

      • 121 jacquelineoboomer
        January 23, 2019 at 7:52 pm

        They claim they’re writing two versions of the SOTU – one if it’s in the chamber, and one if it isn’t. (I’m guessing that just covers the Intro, in line with what you intimated.)

        That is, if they remember what day of the week it is. There’s so much chaos going on there, who knows. Ugh.
