Banging

Because it's better than not banging at Hillary's headquarters.

The Daily Combover - February 8, 2017

Today it looks like the Fontange Fuhrer finally realized there's a White House blog that collects all of his readouts and transcripts. Because suddenly it's running propaganda ads like this repost of a WSJ opinion column on Neil Gorsuch. (And by the way does anyone else feel like that graphic looks like a credit score and interest rate ad taken from a bank page?)

In any case, it's not like it's an illegal move by any means but it's strange given the typical role of the White House blog.

Trump began his day with the usual Tweetstorm of Hate and then conducted his first official act of the day following the likely-confirmation of Jeff "I left my hood in my other car" Sessions: Listing the members of a recent meeting of Grifters Anonymous Announcing his cabinet:

President Donald J. Trump today formally announced the 24 people who will be serving with him on his Cabinet. 
Vice President Michael R. Pence
Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson
Secretary of the Treasury-designate Steven T. Mnuchin
Secretary of Defense James Mattis
Attorney General-designate Jeff Sessions
Secretary of the Interior-designate Ryan Zinke
Secretary of Agriculture-designate Sonny Perdue (announced)
Secretary of Commerce-designate Wilbur L. Ross, Jr.
Secretary of Labor-designate Andrew F. Puzder
Secretary of Health and Human Services-designate Thomas Price
Secretary of Housing and Urban Development-designate Benjamin S. Carson, Sr.
Secretary of Transportation Elaine L. Chao
Secretary of Energy-designate James Richard Perry
Secretary of Education Elisabeth Prince DeVos
Secretary of Veterans Affairs-designate David J. Shulkin
Secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly
White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus
U.S. Trade Representative-designate Robert Lighthizer

Director of the Office of Management and Budget-designate Mick Mulvaney
Director of the Central Intelligence Agency Mike Pompeo
Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency-designate Scott Pruitt
Administrator of the Small Business Administration-designate Linda E. McMahon


I could end right now with a "We're Doomed!" and then cry myself to sleep but unfortunately there's still more to this show. From flaunting his post-Muslim Ban strategy of blaming the dishonest corrupt media and liberals, to promoting crony-capitalism while sitting in the Oval Office, to shitting on the Constitution's Emoluments clause, it's pretty clear that Bannon may have his influence but Trump is going to make sure he comes out of this with money and power.

So let's peek over at Twitter and hopefully end today's column on a high note. Trump still can't get over the fact that some judges had the audacity to protect the Constitution and Name of this Country against his onslaught:

While that was going on, he made sure to keep the grift going with a pair of Tweets helping out his family's investments into Intel and his daughters' chintzy clothing and accessory lines.

You didn't really believe he'd separate himself from his business, did you?

And then finally capping it off with a series of Tweets bashing the media.
About that high note? Never mind. 49% of this country believes Trump is truthful.

We're doomed!

I'm going to cry myself to sleep now. Catch you on the flip side.
