The Daily Combover - January 30, 2017

What a weekend!

Dear Leader Agent Orange did not look happy that his inaugural crowd was once again emasculated by a protest crowd.  This time it was a series of timed protests at international, national, and even regional airports across the country.

From a few hundred people in Springfield, IL to tens of thousands in larger cities like Boston and Washington, we, the people, did not stand in silence as Trump signed executive orders banning people (almost all Muslim) from 7 nations from entering the United States as well as the plans for a border wall between the US and Mexico.

How did our Dear Leader respond? With a very nice 31st memorial for the crew of the Challenger:
Oh yeah and there was something about a bunch of people dying in some event around the time of World War II. But since it involved Jews, Dear Leader didn't really want to bother with it.

Apparently, Fox News didn't cover the protests, so Trump didn't have any talking points for that. What was on TV? Possibly a Mountain Dew commercial like this one,

because Trump decided that the best way to defend his Executive Orders was to talk about how extreme they were.
And we also learned that clearly Dear Leader isn't a fan of "dudes"
Don't worry Dear Leader. The Dude gets it.

In other news, Trump continued his quest to uneducate our youth by announcing the elimination of a half million teaching jobs as part of his noble effort to eliminate the Department of Education. For someone who wants 4% GDP growth, he really does not understand the first thing about Human Capital -- something that economists have been telling the public for nearly 60 years -- there is empirical proof that education increases human capital which then increases GDP. There's no better way to achieve growth than to educate your populace.

And then, of course, this morning we received the chilling news that our next Supreme Court Justice will be announced shortly:
Now might be a good time to get on the phone with your Senators and remind them how important it is to keep Agent Orange contained. For the next four years, the only vote in a Supreme Court nomination is a nay.

Keep up the pressure and I'll catch you on the flip side.
