I Didn't Say It ....

Janelle Monáe, comes out as pansexual:

“Being a queer black woman in America, someone who has been in relationships with both men and women – I consider myself to be a free-ass motherfucker … but then later I read about pansexuality and was like, ‘Oh, these are things that I identify with too.’ I’m open to learning more about who I am.”

Who you are is who you are.
Welcome out to that!
_____, going cray on FOX & Friends about Comey, his GOP=led DOJ, Ronnie Jackson and, well, read through the lunacy:

“[Comey] said I didn’t stay the night. Of course I stayed there. I stayed there a very short time, well of course I stayed. His memo said I left immediately. I never said that! I never said I left immediately, and you know the funny thing, he does these memos, and then fake news CNN, who’s a total FAKE, you know they give Hillary Clinton the questions to the debate. Can you imagine, by the way, if you gave me the questions to a debate. They would have YOU out of business and they would have ME you better get out of this campaign, they don’t even bring it up. I mean, CNN. FAKE NEWS CNN they actually gave the questions to the debate … think about it. How bad is that? So anyway, Comey leaked, and by the way also, what he did with CNN in order to placate them, you saw that whole scenario. This is a big mistake, this book. He is GUILTY of crimes. And if we had a Justice Department that was doing their job, instead of spending 10 millions dollars … Because of the fact that they have this WITCH HUNT going on with people in the Justice Department who shouldn’t be there. They have a WITCH HUNT against the president of the United States going on. I’ve taken the position – and I don’t have to take this position and maybe I’ll change – that I will not be involved with the Justice Department. I will wait till this is over. It’s a total – it’s all lies and it’s a horrible thing that’s going on. It’s a horrible thing, and yet I’ve accomplished with all of this going on – more than any president in the first year in our history … These are false accusations [against Jackson]. They’re trying to destroy a man. I did say, ‘Welcome to Washington. Welcome to the swamp.’”

Lord. Talk about unhinged. Sarah Palin couldn't have tossed a better word salad!
And this was on Fox!!!
Mick Mulvaney, interim director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, revealed that, as a congressman, he would meet only with lobbyists if they had contributed to his campaign:

“We had a hierarchy in my office in Congress. If you’re a lobbyist who never gave us money, I didn’t talk to you. If you’re a lobbyist who gave us money, I might talk to you.”

And that, ladies and gentleladies, is what’s wrong with Washington.
Pay the coins and you get heard.
Adam Rippon, Olympic skater, at the Time 100 Gala leaving the audience howling:

 “I’m really able to be who I am very effortlessly. I met Nicole Kidman earlier tonight and she even let me smell her husband. If it wasn’t for the words that my mom told me, ‘Never give up on your dreams,’ I would never have had that experience.”

Urban admitted later that Rippon really did get a whiff and when he was asked what fragrance he was wearing, Urban said, “My wife!”
Love it!
Rex Tillerson, on who was responsible for his being fired:

“Mm-hmm when you say ‘the White House,’ who are you talking about? The White House is comprised of how many people? But people that matter, people that might have an interest in whether I stay or leave, there’s about one hundred and sixty of them. I know who it is. I knowwho it is. And they know I know.”

It’s Jared; quiet criminal Jared. According to multiple individuals, before Tillerson’s departure, tensions between the two men had been flaring regularly.
And _____ went with Ivanka’s hubby.
Sean Hannity, on the news that he  created multiple shell companies to invest millions in low income housing through an Obama-era loan program now overseen by HUD Secretary Ben Carson—and Hannity never disclosed those deals when Carson appeared on his show:

“It is ironic that I am being attacked for investing my personal money in communities that badly need such investment and in which, I am sure, those attacking me have not invested their money. The fact is, these are investments that I do not individually select, control, or know the details about; except that obviously I believe in putting my money to work in communities that otherwise struggle to receive such support. I have never discussed with anybody at HUD the original loans that were obtained in the Obama years, nor the subsequent refinance of such loans, as they are a private matter. I had no role in, or responsibility for, any HUD involvement in any of these investments. I can say that every rigorous process and strict standard of improvement requirements were followed; all were met, fulfilled and inspected. The LLC’s are REAL companies that spend real investment money on real properties.”

Wow, someone’s really angry. D’ya think he has something to hide?
Thomas Roberts, former NBC anchor, offering more proof that _____  lied to James Comey about not spending the night in Moscow on Pee Weekend:

“The first time I met Donald _____ it was in Moscow on November 8th, 2013. I taped a sit-down interview with _____ the next day on November 9th. That was also the date for the Miss Universe broadcast. During the after-party for the Miss Universe event, Mr. _____ offered to fly me and my husband back to New York. He said he would be leaving directly from the party. We were unable to accept the invitation. That was the early morning hours of November 10th.”

Seriously, every time ____ opens his mouth a lie falls out.
Barack Obama, in an open letter to Parkland survivors:

America’s response to mass shootings has long followed a predictable pattern. We mourn. Offer thoughts and prayers. Speculate about the motives. And then—even as no developed country endures a homicide rate like ours, a difference explained largely by pervasive accessibility to guns; even as the majority of gun owners support commonsense reforms—the political debate spirals into acrimony and paralysis. This time, something different is happening. This time, our children are calling us to account. The Parkland, Florida, students don’t have the kind of lobbyists or big budgets for attack ads that their opponents do. Most of them can’t even vote yet. But they have the power so often inherent in youth: to see the world anew; to reject the old constraints, outdated conventions and cowardice too often dressed up as wisdom.The power to insist that America can be better.
Seared by memories of seeing their friends murdered at a place they believed to be safe, these young leaders don’t intimidate easily. They see the NRA and its allies—whether mealymouthed politicians or mendacious commentators peddling conspiracy theories—as mere shills for those who make money selling weapons of war to whoever can pay. They’re as comfortable speaking truth to power as they are dismissive of platitudes and punditry. And they live to mobilize their peers. Already, they’ve had some success persuading statehouses and some of the biggest gun retailers to change. Now it gets harder. A Republican Congress remains unmoved. NRA scare tactics still sway much of the country. Progress will be slow and frustrating.
But by bearing witness to carnage, by asking tough questions and demanding real answers, the Parkland students are shaking us out of our complacency. The NRA’s favored candidates are starting to fear they might lose. Law-abiding gun owners are starting to speak out. As these young leaders make common cause with African Americans and Latinos—the disproportionate victims of gun violence—and reach voting age, the possibilities of meaningful change will steadily grow.
Our history is defined by the youthful push to make America more just, more compassionate, more equal under the law. This generation—of Parkland, of Dreamers, of Black Lives Matter—embraces that duty. If they make their elders uncomfortable, that’s how it should be. Our kids now show us what we’ve told them America is all about, even if we haven’t always believed it ourselves: that our future isn’t written for us, but by us.

This is how a president talks …
Sadly, our current Liar-In-Thief is too busy sucking Wayne LaPierre’s dick.

Janelle Monae is such a pretty little thing. I loved her in Hidden Figures. If she wants to have sex with pans, that's purely her business!
I couldn't read His Royal Orange Batcrap's rant because I hear his voice even when written. Just no. I hear Obama's voice too, but his is very pleasant and he is class personified.

I want to kiss Adam Rippon's forehead and pinch his little behind. Is that so wrong?

Hannity, the talking thumb, ICK!

Stephen Colbert did a great riff last night on Trump's call-in to "Fox & Friends." And I'm so glad to read that Janelle Monae FINALLY came out!

the dogs' mother said...

Finally! Friday! What a week :-)

Helen Lashbrook said...

So Hannity invested in a HUD programme just to help the poor? Really? So Mr Hannity do your tenants pay real low rents? Or have they all been moved out to allow you to make real money out of your properties?

Martha said...

My husband and I can never get enough of listening to President Obama speak. What a class act. His wife, too. Another class act.

Dave R said...

Oh, dear me, Sean H sounds a bit flummoxed... And the Idiot Jerk... AM is wrong, every time he opens his mouth diarrhea shoots out. So... does this mean Mick Mulvaney turns tricks for money?
