Well, he didn’t. Here is a weird moment, along with some other classic unplanned political moments.
Reminds me of one time some friends and I started counting down New Year’s early at a party. “Ten, nine, eight . . . ” Everybody joined in, and then they were like, “Wait a minute!”
Here’s the coverage . . .
On a more serious note, the governor’s race in Kentucky means nothing for Trump. Bevin is a Republican and the incumbent, and he barely lost after Trump appeared in Kentucky. But he was unpopular in the state, and the rest of the Republicans on the ballot statewide won.
Meantime, Republicans lost the legislature in Virginia. But that just confirms the drift toward blue there that has been occurring for about ten years.
Forget the “throuple” stuff. We all know that society has “evolved” not to condemn anyone for having a simultaneous relationship with their husband and a woman, a campaign staffer.
Because, California Democratic Rep. Katie Hill resigned just days after the Ethics Committee announced it was investigating an alleged relationship with a staffer, which is both against the rules and sexual harassment.
She’s getting out of town ahead of the posse.
If President Trump were accused of having sex with a White House aide, they’d be adding it to their impeachment counts.
But Katie, hey, she’s one of us! She was so cool and promising.
President Trump and Melania were booed when they showed up at the fifth game of the world series between the Washington National and the Houston Astros.
That’s a badge of honor, of course. It’s Washington. The town only votes for Democrats, and he was elected to turn the place upside down.
“Lock him up,” was another chant.
Incredibly a Democratic senator, Chris Coons of Delaware, claimed to be outraged.
“Forgive me, I’m enough of a sort of traditionalist about our institutions that even at a time when there is a lot that our president does that I find disturbing, offensive, unconventional, I have a hard time with the idea of a crowd on a globally televised sporting event chanting ‘lock him up’ about our president,” said Coons.
He added, “I, frankly, think the office of the president deserves respect even when the actions of our president at times don’t.”
Vice President Pence Thursday assailed the NBC and Nike for their hypocrisy, pretending to stand for social justice — except when it comes to their bottom line, which dictates that they not anger communist China over Hong Kong.
All this is true. How about calling on Americans to reconsider buying products made in China, and to call on businesses to start finding other low-wage countries to make their products?
But that would inconvenience us.
Pence went on to tell the people of Hong Kong, “We stand with you.”
Well, I think that’s a good thing to do. The Chinese should understand that there will be consequences if they crush Hong Kong.
But we also have to be careful about doing what we are so good at, which is to tell people we cannot possibly help that we support them. We cannot provide military aid to Hong Kong. And unless there is a plan to take serious, long-lasting steps against the Chinese if they start murdering protestors, we should not be giving people the impression that we are going to do something for them.
It makes us feel so good about ourselves to say these things, but then it is the people over there who must suffer.
Looks like he’s still on the show. Maybe he’s winning, I don’t know. Doesn’t do much dancing here. He looks “almost regal,” the DWTS folks declare. But, yeah, not quite. Here is dancing as a cowboy. I dunno. I was in on the joke the first time, but I’m kind of thinking it’s time for… Continue Reading
“We encourage Hillary to get back into the race. We would love it. Please do,” said Trump campaign Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany during an appearance on Fox News. She also seemed to agree that Hillary could not win the Democratic primary. I’m not so sure. I think Hillary is seriously considering getting back in, given… Continue Reading
This is a pretty effective video with a strong ring of truth to it, done by the Republican National Committee. The message is that socialism leads to tyranny and deprivation, using Venezuela as an example. Leading Democratic presidential candidates are offering Republicans this opening because they are advocating . . . socialism. They either don’t… Continue Reading
