Trump, the NRA, and Relativity… a limerick

Trump’s tweet begs your consideration

Empty words are his palliation

Shooting epidemic

Clearly symptomatic

NRA — pre-paid obligations

$30 mill for Stable G to be bribed

Stay the course- the NRA contrived

Smile, Tiny Thumbs up

Trump is crumbling under the weight of Friday’s indictment of thirteen Russians, and the subsequent realization that this serves as proof that Russia did interfere with the 2016 presidential election on his behalf.

Whose side is he on anyway? You remember the sanctions against Russia… the ones Trump has failed to implement?

  • The House voted yes to sanctions against Russia 419-3
  • The Senate voted yes to sanctions against Russia 98-2

Trump chose Russia.

Donny is suffering this morning.

(Smile, tiny thumbs up.)

I read “Never gotten over Obama.” My eyes go no further in this tweet, because Trump can not come to terms with the fact that we had a black president… who was twice elected by the American people, not by Putin.

(Smile, tiny thumbs up.)

Trump as the schoolyard bully, name calling, taunting, and can’t spell little. He is responding to Representative Adam Schiff on CNN discussing the Russia indictment:

“The evidence is now overwhelming and unequivocal and we need to move to protect ourselves from Russian interference in elections that are coming up”

(Smile, tiny thumbs up.)

Here we have Trump denying his denial—

I never said that I never said that I never said that I never said…

(Smile, tiny thumbs up.)

And now back to— “But what about her emails?”

Trump also still can’t get over Hillary Clinton, who the majority of America voted for to be president.

(Smile, tiny thumbs up.)

This tweet is correct. Moscow is laughing. The butt of the joke however is the dotard in chief. The moron, who doesn’t know when a smile and tiny thumbs up is inappropriate, tells America to “get smart.”

(Smile, tiny thumbs up.)

Trump is not getting enough credit for going to Florida and not golfing yesterday.

Somehow his response to the latest high school mass shooting is lacking.

(Smile, tiny thumbs up.)

About those indictments, the only question remaining is whether Trump was one of the “unwitting participants,” mentioned, or one of the Americans who was fully aware of what was going on, but helped anyway.

(Smile, tiny thumbs up.)

“No collusion,” but Jr, and Jared, and campaign chair Manafort, met with the same Russian lawyer who recruited a Swiss double agent.

Trump now says that in 2014 he wasn’t planning to run for president in the 2016 election, but he registered the ‘Make America Great Again’ trademark *in 2012.

Trump’s lies that can be disproven with his own tweets of the past, the next one is only a week old.

Trump told Russians he’d run for president when he was in Moscow in November 2013—and it was that declaration that led to the anti-U.S. campaign in early 2014.

In mid 2013, Trump’s attourney, Michael Cohen, established Trump was running.

13 Russians criminally charged for interfering in US election,

Mueller announced charges— conspiracy to defraud the US, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud and aggravated identity theft.

It’s happening Donny, and tweeting won’t stop it.

(Smile, tiny thumbs up.)

Statistics Show — Guns Do Kill People

Trump calls for flags to fly at half-staff in response to South Florida school shooting, after he blames the victims.

That response, along with his “thoughts and prayers,” set the NRA back $21,000,000 in Trump campaign donations.

*Fun Fact* The shooter trained with Trump’s people, white supremacists.

GOP Florida Senator Mark Rubio says shooters “will find a way to get the gun.” He also says “gun restrictions would not have prevented the mass shooting” at a high school in his home state.

That response was purchased by the NRA for $176,030 in campaign donations in 2016.

Senator Thom Tillis has earned $169,923 NRA dollars… “thoughts and prayers.”

Paul Ryan says: “Don’t make Florida school shooting conversation about taking away people’s guns.” — NRA paid $171,977 for that sentiment.

Ted Cruz says— “The reaction of Democrats to any tragedy is to try to politicize it. So they immediately start calling that we’ve got to take away the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.”

Cruz also says the families of victims don’t want tougher gun laws, and he sends them thoughts and prayers.

The cost of Ted Cruz’s sentiment, paid by the NRA— $360,727 in 2016.

I would venture to say the families of the victims don’t want Ted Cruz’s thoughts and prayers.

Someone tell Ted Cruz

  • 80% of Americans support bans on assault-style weapons.
  • 90% support tougher background checks.

The NRA pumped $1,865,924 into congress in 2016, and they get what they pay for in loyalty.

In the U.S., where the NRA owns the government, there have been 18 school shootings since January 1.

Yes, that is 35 days.

In the rest of the world, where the NRA does not own the government, there have been a total of 18 school shootings in the past twenty years.

The NRA says “guns don’t kill people.” We could say the NRA kills people, or we could say the GOP kills people.

Congress uses the 2nd amendment to defend their refusal to change gun laws.

The 2nd amendment was written during the time of single shot muzzle loaded rifles. Would they have argued for the right to bear assault rifles?

The weapon of choice this week in Parkland Florida was an AR-15 assault rifle.

The assault rifle was invented in 1964.

If four or more victims are killed in a shooting, it is categorized as a “mass shooting. The number of US school mass shooting deaths using assault rifles between 1964 – Present: 456.

Stop sending thoughts and prayers, send reform.

Putin, Putin, Putin… a limerick

The middle “Brady Bunch” girl, Donald Trump

Is misunderstood, sad, in a slump

His big sister Vlad

Hogs attention, it’s SAD!

It’s understandable he’s such a grump

Great numbers for his billionaire friends!

For the rest of us on poverty’s end

Of the new tax scale

Keep checking the mail

For the refund they’ll never send.

Paul Ryan was paid off the day after

The tax bill was made law… hear the laughter?

Koch paid a half mil

What’s better still?

Ryan pitched it, Koch was the drafter

$500,000— Shall we calculate,

52 weeks, in a year- no debate

$9,615.

Per-week, it’s obscene

Ryan works for whom? What’s his new tax-rate?

Trump Hospitalized After Tearing Rotator Cuff in Futile Attempt to Pat Self on Back

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!” “So much winning!”

So many billionaires getting more billionairier…y!

Drop in tourism under Trump cost US over 40,000 Jobs,

Bank of America raises rates on it’s poorest customers,

Amazon employees qualify for food stamps,

AT&T lays off 1000s and raises customer fees for services like direct tv,

1000’s of Walmart employees out of work with Sam’s Club Closures,

Kimberly-Clark (Huggies brand) will cut up to 5,500 jobs

30,000 solar panel jobs lost…

It’s all you baby.

So Much Politics

“Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government: When this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved.” ~Benjamin Franklin

I have started several posts over the past few days, and none have inspired me to hit publish.

Not among them—

* Trump and a porn star have sex. (How many porn stars?) I couldn’t care less, and I’m not in the least surprised; he’s a pig. He’s never been faithful to a wife, and I’d be worried about std’s if I were #3.

I wish the sexual assault allegations against Trump held the public’s interest like this does.

* Also not on the list inspiring me to write is news that Fatty McTrumpster’s doctor lied about his weight and, if the doctor lied about that, the entire physical was an elaborate performance… but at least it was a comedy.

These three guys are the same height and claim to be the same weight… on earth, with gravity. Muscle is heavier than fat, still, someone is lying. Can you guess which?

* I was going to write on various opinions I’ve read regarding Steve Bannon’s testimony with the House Judiciary Committee. Everyone has a theory about this.

If I could pick one that I’d most like to be true, I choose— Bannon is part of a plan that has been set up by Mueller, and Trump fell into it bigly by sending word to Bannon not to answer questions. More obstruction of justice to add to the rest.

I also like the idea that— Bannon cited executive privilege as his reason for refusing to answering questions, but he was referring to Mueller who also falls under “executive privilege.” I have no idea if that’s true, but I like it.

It follows the idea that— Bannon’s refusal to answer was a way to keep Mueller’s investigation private from Nunes and other Trump/Russia participants who are on the “committee.”

But this story has been written by better and more qualified people than I, so I let it go.

* What I did begin was a post about Donald Trump’s claim that he isn’t a racist. The denial and deaf ears of Republicans who were in the room, but will not admit they heard Trump call Haiti and Africa “shit-hole countries.”

Then yesterday—

Trump administration bars Haitians from U.S. visas for low-skilled work…”

Only Haitians were removed from the list of about 80 countries to whom H2A and H2B visas are regularly granted.

I didn’t finish writing about this, because what can you add to that? My last post mentioned Trump’s descendants came to this country unskilled.

An artist projected a message on Trump Hotel DC.

* Then finally, along with everyone else, I started working on a post about Trump’s assault on the free press.

I was inspired, as was everyone else, by his “Fake News Awards.”

What kind of a president does something so insulting to the free world, and to the press.

I was going to compare Trump to Roman Emperor Nero, Frances Maximilien Robespierre, Hitler, Stalin.

I was going to add that the Committee to Protect Journalists released a list of the world’s worst oppressors of free press, and guess who topped the list— Donald Trump was followed by Vladimir Putin, Tayyip Erdoğan, and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.

I had been writing about this, but then I saw Republican Senator Flake speech. He covered it all. It was an excellent speech, given by a man who votes with Trump 90% of the time, but a good speech. Words.

I only would have added that this is not only Donald Trump attacking the free press. This is a conspiracy to undermine the truth. Trump has wealthy friends who want to keep him in office. They dictated much of the tax plan, and want to reap the benefits, and without the press Trump would stand a better chance at re-election. Like Trump and “fox and friends” said, 90% of Trump news is bad.

Trump’s friend Rupert Murdoch, owns Fox, and recently acquired the Wall Street Journal. According to Reuters, Murdoch has been in contact with AT&T, the owners of Time Warner/CNN. Murdoch wants to buy CNN- but AT&T is not interested in selling.

Now Trump’s Justice Department has recommended AT&T sell either its DirecTV unit or Time Warner’s Turner Broadcasting unit – which includes CNN – if they want antitrust approval. A little strong arming is under way.

Nazis controlled half the newspapers published in Germany by 1944.

“If men are to be precluded from offering their sentiments on a matter, which may involve the most serious and alarming consequences that can invite the consideration of mankind, reason is of no use to us; the freedom of speech may be taken away, and dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep, to the slaughter.”

~George Washington

Only 90% negative is too kind for Trump.
