Look, we all know there are less Orange-Combover people in the world than there are Black people, continuing to try to provide evidential support for your prejudice still doesn't make it right.

It's how I cope with having this worthless piece of orange trash in office knowing that the DNC and RNC are completely to blame.  Particularly the DNC, we told them that dog wouldn't hunt back in '07 but those worthless fucks wanted what they wanted and were willing to cheat to get it.

Fucking Sanders would have strolled into office...


So yeah, all these protesting, whining, bitching people are getting the Comb-over Orange Freak they deserve.  And before they run Hillary up for anything beyond "Sad Sack of the Century" just remember: That dog won't hunt.

OK, now you have me worried.  No matter what they do these folks have just been handed a winning Lotto ticket.  Half are politicians and the other half will do book and speaking deals worth tens of millions.

I wish you could just relax and enjoy the show; remember that with these folks at least the corruption is open and honest corruption.  They tried to force feed us Clinton which would have just been more subterfuge and dead bodies.

One thing for sure:  Conway holds her own against the Presstitutes...the Chuck Todd smackdown was priceless. 

Had MSM Presstitutes expended a minuscule of  "journalistic tenacity", they wasted race-baiting & undermining "all-things-Trump", and instead focused on substanstive issues ( our shitty unaccountable educational system, government spending and endless war come to mind....Iraq WMDs anyone?)) we'd be in much better shape these days.

All we've heard is "everything's fine" for the past eight years how the world will fall apart over the next four. 

With exception of defunding abortion services (fuck the fundies), Trumpster's first day or two is looking good.  Freezing federal hiring and pay...+1000 bitchez!

Dude, if we're gonna freeze Federal Pay we should freeze pay increases for ALL American workers.  Those fucking Federal Firefighters and Secretaries deserve their measly 2.5% pay raise, freezing their pay amounts to a pay cut (when you account inflation) to the hard working Federal employees we do have.  Their kids have to eat also...

A Pay freeze should trigger an automatic tax increase on all types of taxes - share the pain biatches!!

I don't think that stubbornly refusing to acknowledge facts which any reasonably astute eight year old could easily uncover constitutes "holding her own", or that being belligerent in the face of well informed and reasoned criticism counts as a smack down.

You have, however, identified yourself as a member of the class who will deny any aspect of reality so long as it serves your political agenda.

"Alternative facts" are lies; it's as simple as that. Once you abandon adherence to REALITY as the ultimate arbitrator of any factual dispute, you enter a realm where nothing matters except power. I will not follow you there, and I will fight you and others like you every step of the way, because "that way lies madness",

I don't care how much you like Trump; when he lies he's only a liar. And he's going to be called out on every single lie he makes, every single time, by me, by every legitimate press outlet, and by a couple of hundred million others as well. If Trump continues to try to make reality subject to his approval he will become a complete failure as a president within weeks.

This shit won't fly. Trump will change, or he will go down in defeat, and it won't take months for this to resolve.

Oh, Trump can spin and get away with it; all politicians spin.

But if Trump is going to keep claiming that tweets he made a few days earlier never happened, and that an empty Washington DC actually had the biggest crowds in history -- he's going to become a complete joke in no time flat.

We're only three days into his administration and rather than his honeymoon, the Internet has him dressed up in a clown suit. I mean, what's Kellyanne Conweay going to do? Threaten the Internet that she's going to "reevaluate" her relationship with it?

So, that whole notion that Germans should have vehemently protested Hitler's National Socialist party's actions, is just bullshit then?  Because, you know, by the time they got around to killing Jews, the protesters would have neutered themselves before they ever had a chance to make a difference.

'Once you abandon adherence to REALITY as the ultimate arbitrator of any factual dispute, you enter a realm where nothing matters except power. I will not follow you there... "that way lies madness."' - some guy on the internet

As for the 1st press conference “relationship message delivery vehicle,” of the Trumpian episode of our great American experiment, I  particularly liked this take on the new normal.

Send In the Interns-  Jay Rosen

A good place to begin in the analysis of Spicer’s performance is that we have no name for what this thing was. We can’t call it a press conference because, in a remarkable show of cowardice, Spicer walked out without taking questions. It wasn’t an announcement because there was no policy news external to press relations.

Spicer called it an “update on the president’s activities” but attacking journalists for being biased against you is in no sense an “update.” It wasn’t an informal discussion among people who have to work together because, as I said, there was no back and forth, and the setting was stiff, formal, heavy with significance as this was the first official briefing room event of a new presidency. Spicer looked tense. He was shouting at times as he read from a prepared script. Watch the clip: what would you call it? (It’s 5:32)

Trying not for elegance but for accuracy, I would call this event a “relationship message delivery vehicle,” operating on three levels.

First, it told staffers who work for Trump: this is what we expect. If The Leader is reeling from a narcissistic wound (crowd figures too small) you will be expected to sacrifice dignity and best practice to redress that wound. That’s what you bought into when you agreed to work for President Trump. This is a stark statement. No wonder Spicer sounded tense.

A second message was to the press. You will be turned into hate objects whenever we feel like it. We can do that to you without providing right of reply because… what are you going to do about it? Small mistakes quickly corrected will be treated as evidence of malicious wrong doing by the entire group. (And you deserve that.) We are not bound by what you call facts. We have our own, and we will proceed to put them out regardless of what the evidence says. It’s not a problem for us if you stagger from the room in disbelief. We’re not trying to “win the news cycle,” or win you over. We’re trying to demonstrate independence from and power over you people. This room is not just for briefings, announcements and Q & A. It’s also a theater of resentment in which you play a crucial part. Our constituency hates your guts; this is the place where we commune with them around that fact. See you tomorrow, guys!


* To the core Trump constituency — and an audience primed for this over years of acrid ‘liberal media’ critique — two things were said. “We’re going to rough these people up.” (Because we know how long you have waited for that.) But also, and in return, you have to accept our “alternative facts” even if your own eyes tell you otherwise. This too is a stark message. The epistemological “price” for being a solider in Trump’s army is high. You have to swallow, repeat and defend things that simply don’t check out.

* To the listeners who are hostile to Trump the message is: you don’t count. There is no common world of fact that connects us to you. Rage on, losers. We don’t have to acknowledge any part of your reality. We’re fine if you dispute ours. In fact, the hotter the better. Our aim is true: to maximize conflict between your core group and ours. So please: help us polarize!

* To the neither/nors, the people who are not part of the Trump constituency and not yet committed to opposing him either, the message is very different. I can summarize it in two words: Don’t bother. People are fighting over what is real— and what is a lie. They dwell in different worlds— different, but neither of them yours. Any modest effort to pay attention will collapse into futility. Truth is impossible to discern without a heroic — and expensive — act of crap detection. Mostly there is confusion. The only rational choice is to pass on the whole spectacle. This space isn’t for you. This is for “them,” the people obsessed with politics. You should just live your life.

Look, then, at what Sean Spicer’s “relationship message delivery vehicle” accomplished on Day One. For Trump staffers: You gave up your dignity when you joined up with The Leader. Act accordingly. For journalists: You are hate objects. We are unbound from all evidence, all truth. For Trump supporters: We will put these press people down for you, but in return you have to lie to yourselves for us. For Trump’s opponents: go nuts, we love it! For the neither/nors: Don’t bother paying attention. You won’t be able to figure it out.

Listen to Ezra Klein explain why this is more than a sideshow:

The Trump administration is creating a baseline expectation among its loyalists that they can’t trust anything said by the media. The spat over crowd size is a low-stakes, semi-comic dispute, but the groundwork is being laid for much more consequential debates over what is, and isn’t, true. Delegitimizing the institutions that might report inconvenient or damaging facts about the president is strategic for an administration that has made a slew of impossible promises and takes office amid a cloud of ethics concerns and potential scandals.
And that is the business that was transacted in the White House briefing room… on Day One.

I'm not convinced that's anywhere near accurate. A quick look at Trump's jumped up nobody appointments reveals a who's who of unstable personalities and promises one spectacular flameout after the next.
