I Didn't Say It ...

Sarah Sanders, White House Lap Dog, saying members of Congress aren’t “smart enough” to examine _____’s tax returns:

“I don’t think Congress—particularly not this group of congressmen and women—are smart enough to look through the thousands of pages that I would assume that President Trump’s taxes will be. My guess is most of them don’t do their own taxes, and I certainly don’t trust them to look through the decades of success that the president has and determine anything.”

Wait. Is huckleberry inferring that _____ does his own taxes?
Is she inferring that lawyers and businesspeople, and a good many members of Congress are lawyers and businesspeople, can’t read a tax return?
Oh Huck, you ignorant fool. I cannot wait for the book you’re going to write, and try to shill everywhere you can, about the horrors of this White House and how brave you were to stick around.
So, I’ll say now what I’d say to you then, ’Fuck off., co-conspirator.’
Ilhan Omar, Muslim Democratic Congressman, speaking at a March event for the Muslim civil rights organization Council on American-Islamic Relations [CAIR]:

“Far too long [Muslims] have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen, and frankly, I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it … CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all [Muslims] were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

Sounds pretty straight forward, but then _____ and his anti-Muslim and anti-women cohorts in the GOP began to attack Omar for the words ‘some people did something.’ ____ even co-opted the post-9/11 phrase ‘Never Forget’ as an attack on Omar.
Perhaps reading her entire quote was too hard for them?
Pete Buttigieg, an Afghanistan veteran, defending Omar:

“After 9/11 we all said we were changed. That we were stronger and more united. That’s what ‘never forget’ was about. Now, a president uses that dark day to incite his base against a member of Congress, as if for sport. As if we learned nothing that day about the workings of hate. That day, some people did this: killed thousands of Americans in order to try to make us smaller, more divided and less free. To weaken us by distancing us from our own values through fear and anger. This is the function of terrorism. I served overseas, at risk to my life, in the struggle against such terrorism. But it can only be fully defeated if we have leaders at home who defuse its capacity to sow hate—hate against Islam or against any number of ‘others.’ The president today made America smaller. It is not enough to condemn him; we must model something better.’”

This is how a human being responds.
This is how a president responds.
Kellyanne Conway, White House Cryptkeeper, saying a lot of Democrats don’t like these new upstarts in Congress, like AOC, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar:

“There’s a great deal of frustration among rank and file members who represent more moderate districts and frankly who represent districts that Donald Trump won in 2016. They’re very frustrated. They’ve been to the White House. They talk to people like me, quietly, saying they wish the radical freshman who get all the magazine covers and all the ink and airtime, [are causing] trouble in Pelosi paradise.”

Kellyanne Conway, who never met a fact she didn’t lie about, wants us to believe that democrats come to her to complain about their colleagues?
Kellyanne? What I said about Huck applies to you, too; especially the last bit.
Andrew Garfield, actor, on the anger in the LGBTQ community about straight actors taking LGBTQ roles:

“I understand the complaint. I think Tony Kushner put it best. He said, ‘It’s illegal for me to ask someone who they f**k in terms of hiring them for a job. That’s none of my business who someone sleeps with. The only question I have as the playwright is, are they right for this character?’ He said that if we only let people play who they are, then it’s the death of empathic imagination. I think that’s beautifully put, and I agree with it. [But] taking such a role means potentially taking it away from an LGBTQ person. The community has suffered so much oppression. As a straight, white male, with so much privilege in this world, I believe my job right now is to pay attention, to listen and to be an ally.”

I can see both sides now, though if more actors came out as gay, you wouldn’t have to ask who they f**k in order to decide if they get the role because you’d know the gay actor from the straight one.
Michael Elizabeth Pence, the cheerleader for the porn President, spinning _____’s enthusiastic reaction to WikiLeaks’ release of damaging material on Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential race was mot an endorsement of the organization:

“I think the president always, as you and the media do, always welcomes information. But that was in no way an endorsement of an organization that we now understand was involved in disseminating classified information by the United States of America.”

Oh Mike, you lying sack of excrement. Your boss, who will seal your political fate cited WikiLeaks 141 times at 56 events in the last month of the campaign.
God, even the one you supposedly believe in, doesn’t like lairs. She’s gonna be so mad you.

I think you spelled huckleberry's book theme wrong. It's going to be on the whores (or hos, if you will) of this White House.

It's so refreshing to hear/read anything that Pete Buttigieg has to say.

Team Pete for sure!

Excrement is too nice for Pence, he's a dirty shit bag.

So, Andy's still refusing Out himself?

Sarah H Sanders, ie 'forked tongue Huckabee' is evidently proud the Idiot Jerk in the White House has been screwing the country for decades.

Ilhan Omar is the future.

Mayor Pete? What a breath of fresh air to hear someone with ethics and values speak.

I'm not sure what is more despicable, the right-wing's malicious smear-job on Ilhan Omar or the Democratic leadership's cowardly reluctance to defend her.
