I Didn't Say It ...

Chris Murphy, Democratic Senator from Connecticut, calling for Jared Kushner to resign:

“You don’t think the Republicans would be calling for the resignation of an Obama official who allowed the president and vice president to openly lie about a major national security issue? He watched his father-in-law on TV say no one in [his] campaign talked to the Russian government.”

But Republicans don’t care about lying when they have the White House.
Silly me, Republicans don’t care about lying; it’s what they do.
Lindsey Graham, Republican Senator from South Carolina, on President _____’s plan to form a “cyber security unit” with Vladimir Putin:

“It’s not the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard, but it’s pretty close.”

Miss Lindsey is getting tired of _____’s lunacy.
Who knew she’d be one of the first?
50 Cent, on Jay-Z’s new album 4:44:

“I thought the s—t was aight, you know what I’m sayin’? I liked the s—t. But I’ma keep it 100: The s—t was a little, the s—t was too smart. I felt like I was supposed to be wearing glasses and s—t, and tie a f—king sweater around my waist. It was like Ivy League s—t. I ain’t gon’ hold you up, Some of that s—t was like golf course music. I’mma tell you the truth: N—as hot out here. They don’t wanna hear that s—t. They just wanna have a good time. F—k that. You can’t be the best rapper at 47, because the new n—as is here.”

Gosh, without the curse words 50 Cent wouldn’t be able to string together a single sentence.
Illiterate tool.
Just sayin’.
Sean Spicer, attacking CNN’s Jim Acosta:

“If Jim Acosta reported on Jim Acosta the way he reports on us, he’d say he hasn’t been very honest. I think he’s gone well beyond the role of reporter and steered into the role of advocate. He’s the prime example of a [reporter in a] competitive, YouTube, click-driven industry. He’s recognized that if you make a spectacle on the air then you’ll get more airtime and more clicks. ... If I were a mainstream, veteran reporter, I’d be advocating for him to knock it off. It’s hurting the profession.”

So says a spokes-tool for a President who lives and breathes social media clicks.
Sit down, Spicey, your hypocrisy is showing.
PS Leave Hot Jim alone.
Michelangelo Signorile, on the danger of LGBTQ rights being rolled back: 

“This is a vigorous attempt at a full-scale rollback by religious conservatives who’ve been part of _____’s and the GOP’s base, and it’s already had some success. There is no denying it. Many are woke to it. But I’m afraid far too many LGBTQ people are not, still wanting to revel in victories, pointing to polls and to progress globally. The United States, however, is right now led by an authoritarian whose party―always hostile to LGBTQ rights―has so far given him free rein to engage in destructive behavior against anyone and everyone.”

I’m with Signorile. We cannot be complacent; we may have won some impressive battles, but the war is far from over.
Any time they come for one of us, they come for all of us.
Shepard Smith, Fox News anchor, poking holes in the White House story that Junior was being transparent about his emails:

“His transparency came minutes before he had been made aware that The New York Times would be publishing the same e-mails this released ... Transparency is something that normally happens prior to learning that somebody else is about to document dump you. Normally that word wouldn’t be used in this circumstance.”

The only thing transparent about Junior is that whenever he’s speaks, he’s lying.
He lied about ever having the meeting; then he lied about the reason for the meeting; then he lied about what happened.
He lies ... like Daddy.
Jake Tapper, on Junior’s emails:

“It’s a staggering turn of events, and it’s rather momentous. This can’t just be, this can’t be dismissed as people out to get Donald J. _____ Jr. or fake news. This is evidence of willingness to commit collusion. That’s what this is on its face. Now, maybe there’s an explanation for it, and if that’s true, we can talk about that, and we’ll report it.”

Maybe it wasn’t collusion, but it’s like someone asking you to buy stolen goods from the trunk of a car, and you go and look at the stolen goods and decide they aren’t exactly what you’re looking for.
You still tried to buy stolen goods.
Junior is guilty of attempted collusion with Russia if we believe his story but again ... he’s a liar.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House Deputy Press Secretary, trying to deflect on the fact that many in the White House are tied, have tied, or were tied to Russia:

“Look, I think we’ve been extremely clear and I know that Don Jr. discussed it at length last night as well as the president’s counsel. If there’s any evidence of collusion it would be between the DNC and the Ukrainian government.”

Prove it, asshat, instead of just flapping your gums whilst wearing another ugly sweater.
Proof is what we need, and you have none.
Scott Frantz, Kansas State offensive tackle, asked to divulge a personal secret during an offseason team-building exercise used the moment to come out as gay:

“I came out to my teammates, and I’ve never felt so loved and so accepted ever in my life than when I did that. And ever since then it’s been great. I’ve grown so much closer to my teammates since. So it’s been an amazing experience.”

It’s better when you’re out. Seriously, Carrying around that secret is way too much work.
Congratulations Scott and please accept, as our gift, the Official Coming Out Toaster Oven and copy of The Gay Agenda.
Bill Snyder, Kansas State head coach, on Frantz’s coming out:

“I was quite comfortable that [the team] would be very receptive and that they would treat him as they always did as, you know, his teammate and someone that they cared about. And they did.”

It’s becoming ‘no big deal’ finally, even in sports.
It’s a good thing.

Of course Junior and his siblings lie. No secret they all learned from the best.

And does Sarah Hillbille Sandpaper have any other ensembles other than the same three we see her in....and a hair brush?

shep smith & jake tapper - suh-NAP, boyz! keep up the good work!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Oh, so the NY Times was about to publish those emails . . . I WONDERED why Donald Junior released them voluntarily . . . trying to stay ahead of the parade, I guess, the parade to lynch him.

Dave R said...

Signorele is right, those crazy christians really do want to eliminate everything they've passed judgement on... forget about the Bible or God, they want to be in charge.

And a yippy, skippy way to go to Scott Frantz!

Anne Johnson said...

Can you imagine Chelsea Clinton taking a meeting with a Russian lawyer looking for dirt on the Trump campaign? Me neither.

Toni said...

Screw them all!

I nominated you for a Mystery Blogger Award.

I must admit from the few clips I've seen of him Shep Smith seems almost reasonable for a Fox anchor!

And where does the DNC colluding with the Ukraine come from? SHS is on hallucinogenics by the sound of it
