    No, Donald. Sarcasm requires a modicum of intellect to pull off.
    At this juncture is we don’t need a commander in chief who bullies his chief science advisers into lying to bolster his ego and his imagined reality.

    We need a leader ... from either party or either ideology who trusts science’s best efforts and who can check his ambitions and ego at the door.

    Just how far down the rabbit hole can they go? Read a few comments to find out.



    This is the same Bill O'Reilly who recently told Hannity that Covid deaths were not significant because most people who caught it were "on their last legs anyway".

    Remember that report about US hospitals having shortages and testing delays? Well, Lord Dampnut has now moved to solve the problem:

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/01/u...-watchdog.html

    WASHINGTON — President Trump moved on Friday night to replace a top official at the Department of Health and Human Services who angered him with a report last month highlighting supply shortages and testing delays at hospitals during the coronavirus pandemic.

    The White House waited until after business hours to announce the nomination of a new inspector general for the department who, if confirmed, would take over for Christi A. Grimm, the principal deputy inspector general who was publicly assailed by the president at a news briefing three weeks ago.

    The nomination was the latest effort by Mr. Trump against watchdog offices around his administration that have defied him. In recent weeks, he fired an inspector general involved in the inquiry that led to the president’s impeachment, nominated a White House aide to another key inspector general post overseeing virus relief spending and moved to block still another inspector general from taking over as chairman of a pandemic spending oversight panel.

    Mr. Trump has sought to assert more authority over his administration and clear out officials deemed insufficiently loyal in the three months since his Senate impeachment trial on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress ended in acquittal largely along party lines. While inspectors general are appointed by the president, they are meant to be semiautonomous watchdogs ferreting out waste, fraud and corruption in executive agencies.

    The purge has continued unabated even during the coronavirus pandemic that has claimed about 65,000 lives in the United States. Ms. Grimm’s case in effect merged the conflict over Mr. Trump’s response to the outbreak with his determination to sweep out those he perceives to be speaking out against him.

    Her report, released last month and based on extensive interviews with hospitals around the country, identified critical shortages of supplies, revealing that hundreds of medical centers were struggling to obtain test kits, protective gear for staff members and ventilators. Mr. Trump was embarrassed by the report at a time he was already under fire for playing down the threat of the virus and not acting quickly enough to ramp up testing and provide equipment to doctors and nurses.

    Funny... I don’t recall Constitutional exceptions to checks and balances based on whether or not some representatives like or don’t like the president. Not only that, but the president’s clear insinuation that Democrat representatives want more American deaths in order for Trump to look bad is repugnant and unfounded. The man is a complete disgrace and needs to be removed in order for America to come together in this crisis, be serious and make decisions based on science, data and evidence and not Trump’s magical thinking.
    Thwarting and disputing Trump is actually necessary to save American lives.

    Looks like we've got another Zimmerman style case brewing here in Georgia with the Ahmaud shooting. Given its proximity to the election, I expect this one will end up being even more political.

    At least this time there's video. Not that it matters.

    Just in case you thought the Michael Flynn affair was done with or that William Barr could not be more corrupt...

    Flynn withdraws his guilty pleas and the DOJ withdraws its prosecution.

    It 100% should be political. Trump's dog whistling and pandering to racists is why this shooting happened. It is only because of Trump that KKK types feel emboldened to operate publicly.

    So, what do people make of this Burr investigation? On the one hand, insider trading is bad and all. On the other hand, he's clearly a target of the Trump administration and this reeks of a takedown to influence the politically inconvenient Senate Intelligence Committee report on Russia's interference in U.S. elections.

    Apparently, there's some bad blood because Burr dared to subpoena Prince Dampnut and he was in general being a "deep state plant" instead of, say, investigating Obamagate, which I at this point have to assume is the actual gate of Obama's house.

    https://www.politico.com/news/2020/0...igation-259740

    Donald Trump’s allies don't much like Richard Burr. But they'd prefer the president keep out of the criminal investigation of the senator.

    The revelation that Burr was under FBI investigation for potential insider trading rocked Capitol Hill on Thursday. But Trump, who often relishes commenting on the news of the day, was restrained when asked about the situation. And, if anything, his broader circle of family and friends was sharply critical of North Carolina Republican.

    The reasoning, according to five Republicans close to the White House, is mainly political: Burr's home state of North Carolina is crucial to the Trump's electoral prospects in November. It's a key state Trump hopes to win again and the Republican Party is planning to hold its nominating convention there in August. Additionally, North Carolina's other senator, Republican Thom Tillis, faces a tough reelection that is critical for retaining GOP control of the Senate.

    “He’ll stay out of it,” a former Trump adviser predicted. “Getting involved could hurt him politically.”

    Yet Burr has also never been popular in Trump's circles. Trump allies are angry that Burr, as Senate Intelligence Committee chair, oversaw his panel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Last year, he issued a subpoena to the president’s oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., even after special counsel Robert Mueller completed his own Russian election meddling report. Later, Burr also authorized the release of a committee report that affirmed the intelligence community's findings that Russia intended to help Trump win with its meddling.

    “Wanting his kids to testify was a red line," said another Republican close to the White House.

    The anger spilled over Thursday.

    "Now I hope we see some action," Trump Jr. tweeted in response to a tweet about Burr's announcement that he will step down as chairman of the influential intelligence panel while under investigation for stock trades he made just before the market collapsed amid the coronavirus pandemic.

    [...]

    “As chairman of Senate Intel, Richard Burr ran interference for the corrupt intelligence and law enforcement bureaucracy behind the attempted coup against Trump,” tweeted Sean Davis, co-founder of the conservative Federalist website. “With the FBI raid of his home and seizure of his phone, I wonder if Burr regrets his refusal to do actual oversight.”

    Obamagate!

    https://edition.cnn.com/2020/05/14/p...mic/index.html

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell conceded Thursday night that he was wrong to claim that the Obama administration had not left behind a plan to deal with a pandemic in the US.
    "I was wrong. They did leave behind a plan, so I clearly made a mistake in that regard," McConnell said during an interview with Fox News' Bret Baier.

    The concession comes days after he falsely accused the Obama administration of failing to leave the Trump administration "any kind of game plan" for something like the coronavirus pandemic during a Trump campaign online chat with Lara Trump, the President's daughter-in-law.

    "They claim pandemics only happen once every hundred years but what if that's no longer true? We want to be early, ready for the next one, because clearly the Obama administration did not leave to this administration any kind of game plan for something like this," McConnell had said Monday.

    In reality, former President Barrack Obama's White House National Security Council left the Trump administration a detailed document on how to respond to a pandemic.

    The document, whose existence was publicly revealed by Politico in March, is called the Playbook for Early Response to High-Consequence Emerging Infectious Disease Threats and Biological Incidents.

    The playbook contains step-by-step advice on questions to ask, decisions to make and which federal agencies are responsible for what. It includes sample documents that officials could use for inter-agency meetings. And it explicitly lists novel coronaviruses as one of the kinds of pathogens that could require a major response.

    Additionally, outgoing senior Obama officials also led an in-person pandemic response exercise for senior incoming Trump officials in January 2017 -- as required by a new law on improving presidential transitions that Obama signed in 2016.

    The comments are like a high intensity projector.



    Matt Gaetz reposting his 5 minutes of fame on FOX.


    On a different note, what do you all think, will SCOTUS accept the argument that Presidents (and anyone who works for them) are completely immune to subpoena or will they say, "Show us the taxes!"?

    They'll probably decide this is a one-off exceptional situation that doesn't require him to comply with this request without setting precedence.

    Looks like Lord Dampnut's miracle drug is not so miraculous after all:

    https://edition.cnn.com/2020/05/11/h...rus/index.html

    A new study -- the largest of its kind -- shows that hydroxychloroquine, the drug touted by President Trump, does not work against Covid-19 and could cause heart problems.

    The study was published Monday in the Journal of the American Medical Association. It follows a study published Thursday in the New England Journal of Medicine that also showed the drug doesn't fight the virus.

    Even before these reports were published, the US Food and Drug Administration and the National Institutes of Health issued warnings about using the drugs for coronavirus patients.

    "The nail has virtually been put in the coffin of hydroxychloroquine," said Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease expert and longtime adviser to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    In the most recent study, researchers at the University at Albany looked at 1,438 patients with coronavirus who were admitted to 25 New York City area hospitals. After statistical adjustments, the death rate for patients taking hydroxychloroquine was similar to those who did not take the drug. The death rate for those taking hydroxychloroquine plus the antibiotic azithromycin, was also similar.

    However, the patients who took the drug combination were more than twice as likely to suffer cardiac arrest during the course of the study. Heart issues are a known side effect of hydroxychloroquine.

    The Friday Night Massacres. Trump fires 4 Inspectors General, in 2 months, choosing Friday Nights to do so in order to evade press scrutiny.

    President Donald Trump said “we are not closing our country” if the U.S. is hit by a second wave of coronavirus infections.
    “People say that’s a very distinct possibility, it’s standard,” Trump said when asked about a second wave during a tour of a Ford factory in Michigan.
    “We are going to put out the fires. We’re not going to close the country,” Trump said. “We can put out the fires. Whether it is an ember or a flame, we are going to put it out. But we are not closing our country.”
    the way it should be.

    What Trump says and what he does are usually two entirely different things. Let's see what happens in the fall.
