Clinton tried to pass Hillarycare. Obama did pass Obamacare. Trump lowered our taxes and kicked off an economic boom, while reining in or reversing Obama’s abuses. But if you listen to Democrats, their “blue wave” didn’t materialize because white people are evil. Or something.
TUCKER AT HIS BEST: The entire Democratic platform can be summed up in a sentence: “Trump is a bad person.” Never mind health care or infrastructure or the opioid crisis. “Get Trump’s tax returns.” “Get Kavanaugh.” “Intensify the Russia probe.” “It’s all just noise.” “Nobody outside Washington cares.” WORTH WATCHING.
BRING IT: “If the Democrats think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level. Two can play that game!” – Trump
SARAH SANDERS: “Contrary to CNN’s assertions there is no greater demonstration of the President’s support for a free press than the event he held today. Only they would attack the President for not supporting a free press in the midst of him taking 68 questions from 35 different reporters over the course of 1.5 hours including several from the reporter in question. The fact that CNN is proud of the way their employee behaved is … disgusting.”
THE NOT-SO-HIDDEN ASSUMPTION: D’Souza: Trump Exposes Acosta as ‘Emotional Infant’
THE LEFT SUCKS: While Acosta, who refused to give up his mic when POTUS told him to, plays the martyr about losing his White House credentials, a Leftist Antifa mob stood outside Fox’s Tucker Carlson’s home shouting “racist scumbag leave town” and “we know where you sleep at night, we will fight.” Carlson has 4 children.
RUDE MEDIA: What is wrong with these people? Jim Acosta claims they’re “professionals” and they behave “professionally.” No. It’s clear they aren’t and they don’t. They’re not just rude to the president; they are rude to EACH OTHER.
CARAVAN: “Mexico launched a ‘Make Yourself at Home’ program, offering migrants shelter, food, work and schools for their kids. Most turned it down,” Betsy McCaughey in the “U.S. Has Every Reason to Turn the Caravan Away (New York Post, Nov 5, 2018). The reality is that most migrants in the caravan headed toward America’s border are in search of a lifestyle upgrade, not fleeing genuine violence or persecution.
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE ACOSTA REFUSED TO GIVE UP THE MIC: Acosta got to ask his question AT LENGTH. And the president answered him. Period. The room was full of other reporters. Acosta even stood up and started talking again after another reporter was called on and was asking his question! Jimbo is way past needing a punitive Time Out.
ENDING SESSIONS’ SESSION: Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned at the request of President Donald Trump on Wednesday, a move that potentially threatens the independence of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the president.
You gotta admire Trump’s timing in pushing Sessions out just when the Deep State and Democrats were having a grand old time celebrating gaining control of the House and plotting what to do with it.
Acting Attorney General, Matthew Whitaker, a Trump loyalist, is expected to take over the Mueller probe. According to reports, Rod Rosenstein will remain as Deputy Attorney General for now.
HOLDER’S HEAD EXPLODES: He is NOT HAPPY about losing the tame Jeff Sessions. But what a colossal nerve to talk about the rule of law and not doing things to benefit one man. Tweeters had fun giving him a few reality checks. Here are two goodies:
You were held in contempt of Congress for obstructing investigations into your illegal scheme to run guns to Mexican drug cartels, one of which ended up being used to murder an American border patrol agent.
The president can fire those under his authority, as you well know, Eric. What is illegal is using the FBI to spy on your political opposition and paying for opposition research with Russians through a shady law firm. But I’m sure you know all about that.
And my top favorite:
He’s nervous that the police-state Obama administration is going to be exposed.
SIXTEEN SCANDALS: The Legacy of Eric Holder
OBAMACARE: The Trump administration issued a new rule designed to protect Americans from being forced to pay for abortions under Obamacare. The president also issued final rules that will protect pro-life and religious groups like Little Sisters of the Poor from being forced to pay for abortions.
FIRST FEMALE TN SENATOR: And she’s a conservative! Marsha Blackburn won the open Tennessee seat. She promises to continue to be a fierce opponent of the abortion industry and a champion for unborn babies and moms. The eight-term congresswoman is well-known for having lead the U.S. House investigation of the abortion industry’s alleged sales of aborted baby body parts.
BLEXIT: “They’re not going to put me in my place.”
OCCASIONAL CORTEX: “How are you going to pay for it?” “It” being the estimated $40 trillion in big government programs she says we need. Her answer? “You don’t pay at the point of service.” New York City-ers voted her into office. I bet that, like the Venezuelan dude who is now selling stuff out of a bucket at stop lights in another country. He said he voted for socialism, because free housing and free health care and free college all sounded great. Then he saw what it did to the economy of his once prosperous nation.
