Scaramucci Colorful Language

President Trump should reconsider having Anthony Scaramucci in his administration.

Scaramucci tried to walk back an awful conversation he had with Ryan Lizza, a reporter for The New Yorker.

"Colorful language"?

I wouldn't call it that.

From The New Yorker:

“They’ll all be fired by me,” he said. “I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus—if you want to leak something—he’ll be asked to resign very shortly.” The issue, he said, was that he believed Priebus had been worried about the dinner because he hadn’t been invited. “Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” Scaramucci said. He channelled Priebus as he spoke: “ ‘Oh, Bill Shine is coming in. Let me leak the fucking thing and see if I can cock-block these people the way I cock-blocked Scaramucci for six months.’ ”


“The swamp will not defeat him,” he said, breaking into the third person. “They’re trying to resist me, but it’s not going to work. I’ve done nothing wrong on my financial disclosures, so they’re going to have to go fuck themselves.”

Scaramucci also told me that, unlike other senior officials, he had no interest in media attention. “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock,” he said, speaking of Trump’s chief strategist. “I’m not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the President. I’m here to serve the country.”

This is really disgusting.

This is no way to talk to a reporter. I don't believe Scaramucci didn't know that his comments would become public. The New Yorker is not a friendly outlet. He can't be that stupid.

Scaramucci promises he won't confide in a reporter again.

No, Trump made a mistake when he appointed Scaramucci.

I don't like this guy. I don't trust this guy.

The only positive thing that can be said about him is that he does make Trump's remarks appear very presidential and measured when compared with Scaramucci's "colorful language."

Trump Responds to Dylan's Letter

Dylan's letter to President Trump:
Dear President Trump,

My name is Dylan ------, but everybody calls me Pickle. I'm 9 years old and you're my favorite President. I like you so much that I had a birthday about you. My cake was the shape of your hat. How old are you? How big is the White House? How much money do you have? I don't know why people don't like you. You seem nice. Can we be friends? My picture is in here so if you see me you can say hi.

Your friend,
President Trump's response to Dylan:
Dear Dylan,

My name is Donald, but everybody calls me Pumpkin. We have so much in common - I'm my favorite president too.

To answer your questions: I'm 71 years old, the White House is huge, and I'm so rich, I eat a cake shaped like my hat every night.

Your friend,

P.S. Wanna be the new Attorney General?

Kellyanne Conway commented on Anthony Scaramucci's phone call with Ryan Lizza, a reporter from The New Yorker.

Skinny Repeal of ObamaCare Fails

Way to go, Collins, McCain, and Murkowski. Way to go, Democrats.

Here's President Trump's reaction:

Americans gave Republicans control of the House, Senate, and the presidency. This is what we get?


Jimmy Fallon: Scaramucci, Priebus Photo Joke

JIMMY FALLON: It's rumored that Scaramucci is fighting with White House chief of staff Reince Priebus because he wants his job. And a photo went viral today that shows them both in the Oval Office. It looks like things are pretty tense. Take a look at this.

Ooh. I can't tell whether they're about to duel or kiss.

Jimmy Fallon: Scaramucci, ObamaCare, Slavery Joke

JIMMY FALLON: Trump's new communications director Anthony Scaramucci made news for comparing Trump's attempt to repeal ObamaCare to Lincoln abolishing slavery. In a related story, Anthony Scaramucci is now expected to take Sean Spicer's spot on Dancing With the Stars.

Jimmy Fallon: Putin 'Undercover Boss' Joke

JIMMY FALLON: Spicer's not the only one doing a reality show. In the next episode of Undercover Boss, Vladimir Putin is gonna go work at the White House.

Russia Scandal

Jimmy Fallon: Trump Rubs Melania's Back Joke

JIMMY FALLON: Trump held a big rally in Ohio last night and I saw that he rubbed Melania's back while she was introducing him. It was the first time someone has ever shivered in 80 degree weather.

So mean.

Not funny.

Jimmy Fallon: Trump and Number of Senators Joke

JIMMY FALLON: Trump was talking to reporters yesterday after the big health care vote and people noticed that he didn't seem to know how many senators there are. When told there's two for each state, Trump said, 'I'm gonna need another clue.'

Jimmy Fallon: Trump, Transgender Military Ban, Health Care Joke

JIMMY FALLON: Actually, Trump says that he's banning transgender people from serving [in the military] because of high medical costs. If he cares so much about high medical costs, maybe he should pass a health care bill.

Jimmy Fallon: Trump Transgender Military Ban Joke

JIMMY FALLON: Today, President Trump went on Twitter and announced that he is banning transgender people from serving in the military. Trump said he understands this is a very sensitive issue so he made sure to choose his emojis very carefully.

Wisconn Valley


This is a great day for Wisconsin!!!

Watching the TV coverage of this fantastic news, I noticed FOX News aired all the speakers live. CNN and MSNBC did not, apparently deciding this massive investment in the American economy and bringing thousands of jobs here wasn't newsworthy.

I don't know if CNN and MSNBC showed President Trump's remarks. I was watching and not flipping channels.

They'll spend days on Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting about nothing but can't devote time to the tremendous news about Foxconn locating in Wisconsin.

If a story isn't covered on CNN and MNBC or broadcast networks, is it real?



Wasserman Schultz IT Scandal: Complete Leftist Media Blackout

FoxConn Coming to Wisconsin

Great news!


Brewers Win!

Go Brewers!

Imran Awan and Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Who is Imran Awan?

From FOX News:

A House IT staffer at the center of a congressional computer equipment scandal has been arrested by federal officials and charged with bank fraud, Fox News has learned.

Fox News is told officers and agents from the U.S. Capitol Police, the FBI and Customs and Border Protection were involved in the arrest of Imran Awan at Dulles International Airport.

Awan, 37, of Virginia, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to one count of bank fraud during his arraignment in federal court in Washington, D.C. He was released but will have to wear a GPS monitor and abide by a curfew.

Awan also was ordered to turn over all his passports. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 21.

Law enforcement authorities for months have been looking into how Awan may have double-billed the House for equipment like computers, iPads, monitors, keyboards and routers. Several relatives of Awan worked for House Democrats and were fired months ago. Awan, however, was kept on staff by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., even though he was no longer allowed access to the House server network.
Awan, Wasserman Schultz's IT guy, was trying to flee the country!

That's a big story.

Susan Collins and Jack Reed - Hot Mic

While I sympathize with people caught on a hot mic, having what one believed to be private comments becoming public, I am enjoying that the remarks made by Republican Sen. Susan Collins and Democrat Sen. Jack Reed were revealed.

From the Washington Post:

In a more salacious part of what was recorded, Collins then addressed a radio interview in which Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Tex.) suggested that if Collins were a man, he’d have challenged her to a duel for opposing the Senate Republicans’ Obamacare overhaul bill.

“Did you see the one who challenged me to a duel?” Collins asks.

“I know,” Reed replies. “Trust me. Do you know why he challenged you to a duel? ‘Cause you could beat the s— out of him.”

“Well, he’s huge,” Collins replies. “And he — I don’t mean to be unkind, but he’s so unattractive it’s unbelievable.”

“Did you see the picture of him in his pajamas next to this Playboy bunny?” she continues, referring to an infamous photo of Farenthold, below.

Listen to the audio:

Collins was extremely unkind. Reed was unkind, too.

I'm glad they were exposed.

Jimmy Fallon: Replacing Sean Spicer - Pros and Cons

Replacing Sean Spicer

Pro: Donald Trump got a new press secretary.
Con: He thinks a "press secretary" is a person who irons his shirts.

Pro: Sean Spicer can find a job that better suits him.
Con: But first he'll need a suit that better fits him.

Pro: Trump hired hedge fund manager Anthony Scaramucci.
Con: "Scaramucci" is also Trump's favorite dish at The Olive Garden.

Pro: Sean Spicer is getting the support of his closest friends...
Con: Scary Spicer, Baby Spicer, Sporty Spicer and Posh Spicer.

Pro: The position was filed with a fast turnaround.
Con: "Fast turnaround" is also what Melania does when she sees her husband down the hall.

Pro: Anthony "The Mooch" Scaramucci is the new White House communications director.
Con: Somehow a guy named "Tony the Mooch" isn't even close to being the most untrustworthy person in the White House.

Pro: Sean Spicer can now start looking for a less stressful job.
Con: Like "heart surgeon" or "bomb diffuser."

Pro: The bar is set very low.
Con: The bar is also where you'll end up after every press briefing.

Pro: Anthony Scaramucci has a clear message for the American people when it comes to Russia...
Con: "Don't worry 'bout it."

Jimmy Fallon: New Democrat Slogan Joke

JIMMY FALLON: I saw that this week Democrats announced their new slogan - A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future. And Republicans announced their new slogan - Shorter Slogans.

Jimmy Fallon: Scaramucci The Mooch Joke

JIMMY FALLON: We're still getting to know Trump's new communications director Anthony Scaramucci. I saw that his friends like to call him 'The Mooch.' When Trump heard that, he was like, 'Great. Now what am I gonna call Don Jr. and Eric?'

Jimmy Fallon: Boy Scouts and Trump Jokes

JIMMY FALLON: Last night, President Trump gave a big speech at the Boy Scouts of America National Scout Jamboree. This is cool. His health care bill won the award for scariest campfire story.

Actually, I think Trump would make a great Boy Scout because they have to know how to tie knots, and Trump's already tied the knot three times. He knows exactly how to do it.

During his speech, Trump urged the Boy Scouts to be loyal. Then, Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, Sean Spicer, and Jeff Sessions were like, 'Come again? What's that?'

Jimmy Fallon: Hot Mic Joke

JIMMY FALLON: This morning, two senators were caught on a hot mic calling President Trump crazy. And when the news came out, literally every member of the Senate was like, 'Wait, was it me?'

Jimmy Fallon: Clueless Voters Joke

JIMMY FALLON: Ahead of the health care vote, senators were saying that they had no clue what they've been voting on. Then, Americans said, 'Hey, just like us during the election. We don't know what is happening.'

Once again, Trump voters are ridiculed.

Jimmy Fallon: ObamaCare Repeal Joke

JIMMY FALLON: Today, Senate Republicans voted to move forward in the process to repeal and replace ObamaCare even though they don't know exactly what they're going to be voting on. That's like going into the hospital and telling the surgeon, 'Surprise me.'

This is nice to see.

Kat Timpf Assaulted

Last night, FOX News host Kat Timpf was assaulted before she was scheduled to speak at a campaign event for Ben Kissel.

Timpf relayed the rest of her story in a string of subsequent tweets.

... walks in, clearly here because he knows I'm here, dumps an entire 1.5 liter bottle of water on me, first on my head and then I turn ...

... to look and he splashes it directly on my face and runs out. I'm shocked, I'm stunned. I'm obviously upset. I end up not being able ...

... to speak because of it. I've never seen a more disgusting insane cruel climate than the one we're in now. Why? What does that ...

accomplish? I guess I wasn't able to speak so that's great and I guess he wins, but we're just randomly assaulting people in public now?

That's what we're doing? Verbal assault on Twitter not enough anymore? I've had it. I'm an actual, human person. I have a soul, a family ...

... I have feelings. I have opinions, some of which some people may disagree with, but I'm a human being. I'm capable of recognizing ...

... that people with whom I disagree have souls and families and are humans, why are there so many people who seem incapable of viewing ...

... the world that way? Seriously? I work really hard, I feel as though I never stop working, and to have the end result be to not even ...

... be able to exist in the world as a human being without being assaulted verbally and now physically by strangers? Complete strangers?

... and of course, I still don't know exactly what this lunatic's issue with me was. If he was trying to change my mind about something ...

... by dumping his water on my head, the very least he could have done was express what it was specifically that he had an issue with ...

... either before or after assaulting me. I'm getting hate from people on all sides of the aisle bc have views that don't fit in with any ..

... particular party, so I have no way of knowing who or what the hell this guy aligned with and then I realized that it's likely not ...

... even about that. It's not about specific issues anymore it's about either blindly supporting or blindly hating particular people ...

... and for whatever reason, this guy has decided that I am someone who he hates. Not for views, but as a human. Or not a human, because ...

... clearly he doesn't see me as one, but as some sort of an abstract entity that stands for something he hates. It's disgusting, I'm ...

... disgusted, and everyone needs to do better than this infantile bullshit because I for one have had it with senseless hostility ...

... it's not activism, it's not in support of anything, it's nothing but sickness and cruelty. I've had it with people behaving like ...

animals. Get it together and grow up.

The guy who did this is a loser, a sociopath.

All the people so viciously attacking non-Leftists, both verbally and physically, are losers. Likewise, all non-Leftists verbally and physically attacking Leftists viciously are losers.

Thankfully, in the case of Kat Timpf, the guy's weapon was only water.

This could have been much, much worse. It's frightening.

This climate of hostility is out of control.

So, when are Leftists going to speak out about this War on Women?

It's not acceptable to argue that President Trump's rhetoric and FOX News have instigated this behavior.

Each person is responsible for his or her actions. No lame excuses.

You do not walk up to a person and dump a bottle of water on her.

I'm really angry about the attack on Kat, but I'm certainly not going to react by throwing water at Leftists or others with whom I disagree.

I hope the assailant is charged and punished.


Senate Votes to Debate Health Care

The U.S. Senate voted to open debate on health care, barely.

Open DEBATE. That's all.

Vote tally: How each senator voted on GOP health care bill

Remember, they voted to open debate. That's all.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders - 'Butch Queen'

Leftists have no qualms about attacking conservative women.

The hypocrites don't stand up for women. They don't care about women. If they did, they wouldn't brutally attack women holding conservative political views.

Ira Madison, writer for The Daily Beast, called Sarah Huckabee Sanders a "butch queen" in a tweet last Friday.

From the Washington Times:

Ira Madison III, an entertainment writer with The Daily Beast, penned this of Sanders, on a tweet to his 47,500-plus followers: “Butch queen first time in drags at ball.”

And he posted the zinger alongside a photograph of Sanders, Fox News reported.
Late on Monday, Madison tweeted an apology to Sanders.

Because Madison is a Leftist, this weak apology ends the matter. After all, conservative women are fair game. They deserve to be mocked and dehumanized.

This isn't the first time Madison has attacked Sanders.

Here's something he tweeted in May:

Here's a tweet from last Friday, the same day he made the "butch queen" remark:

The guy, like many other Leftists, is cruel.

The Leftists' War on Conservative Women is disgraceful.

Jimmy Fallon: Anthony Scaramucci Deletes Tweets Joke

JIMMY FALLON: Over the weekend, new White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci deleted a bunch of old tweets that were critical of Trump's platform. Trump was shocked. He said, 'You can delete tweets?'

Jimmy Fallon: Sean Spicer New Jobs Joke

JIMMY FALLON: Now that Spicer has resigned there's been a lot of speculation about what he might do for his next job. Well, it turns out he's actually put together a list of options. We got ahold of the list. I'll show you what I mean.

For instance, he could be: A bus driver who's constantly screaming, "Get behind the white line!"

Or, he could become: The author of the book, "How to Age 10 Years in 6 Months."

He could be: The only adult in a Taekwondo class for children.

And finally, Sean Spicer could be: Pull a "Mrs. Doubtfire" and apply to be press secretary all over again as Mrs. Spicingham.

Jimmy Fallon: Sean Spicer Resigns - Jokes

JIMMY FALLON: On Friday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer officially resigned. That's right, Spicer said all the greats always know when to leave - on top. I think it's about time to go.

That's right, Spicer stepped down which means now we have to pretend like he hasn't had his resume ready for five months.

Trump and Boy Scout Jamboree

President Trump addressed the National Scout Jamboree on Monday.

Dylan Goes Electric, Newport Folk Festival - 52 Years Ago Today

Fifty-two years ago, July 25, 1965, Bob Dylan went electric at the Newport Folk Festival.

So, did people really boo him?

That's debatable.

Whatever actually happened more than half a century ago doesn't really matter.

Dylan's performance is accepted as a moment that changed the history of rock and roll.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

In the last twenty years, only two women have served as White House press secretary, Dana Perino and Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Perino worked for President George W. Bush, and Sanders works for President Trump.
