The Daily Combover - January 27, 2017

Donald Trump in an adult diaper

Our fearless leader, Agent Orange (h/t Dr. Paul Krugman), had just one event circled in gold sharpie on his calendar today. None of the others mattered as much as this one. He was going to call that scoundrel of a President, Enrique Pena Nieto today. So he pulled out his phone this morning and laid out the following Tweet:
Nothing really came of the phone call but the fact that there is open dialogue means the media is probably playing this one out a little more than they should. And that means something more important is being ignored. Let's see...

Trump tried to get McConnell to dissolve the Electoral College. But that obviously wasn't something the Republicans would want. After all, they've lost the popular vote in 6 of the last 7 elections.

Hmm... Let's check today's Executive Orders. Here we go:
President Donald Trump on Friday signed an executive order to implement “new vetting measures" after the ceremonial swearing-in of Defense Secretary Gen. James Mattis.
"I'm establishing new vetting measures to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States of America," he said after congratulating Mattis on his appointment. "We want to ensure that we are not admitting into our country the very threats our soldiers are fighting overseas. We only want to admit those into our country who will support our country and love deeply our people."
On the campaign trail, Trump promised “extreme vetting” of people traveling to the United States from “terror-prone” countries, all of them majority-Muslim. But exactly what "new vetting measures" the order laid out were not immediately clear.
Before actually signing the order, Trump said, “this is the protection of the nation from foreign terrorist entry into the United States."
“We all know what that means,” he added.
Trump also signed an executive order he said would “begin a great rebuilding of the armed services.”
The order would develop “a plan for new planes, new ships, new resources and new tools for our men and women in uniform,” Trump said.

Today is Holocaust Remembrence Day and with that I'd like to share the full-text of a famous poem by Pastor Martin Niemoller, "First They Came."
 First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist
Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist
Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew
Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

In Agent Orange's case, it's first the Muslims and Mexicans and then it will be the rest of us. Speak out now and resist against Trump, Bannon, Kushner, and the other fascists that have been installed in the White House by Putin. The Holocaust can never happen again. We must never forget.
