    Since Kellyanne's husband is not a DT supporter, how the heck does he put up with her and her "alternative facts"?

    I've tended to avoid Kellyanne whenever possible but can't help thinking that this episode in nuthatch's link must be a new low for her. She called that reporter a smartass to his face in the presence of a large number of other reporters (his colleagues) and knowing that it was all being televised.

    If we've sunk to the level of name-calling, we might as well be back in second grade, where at recess we can be nasty to one another because the teacher with the whistle isn't anywhere in sight.

    That teacher isn't going to appear on the scene and reproachfully tell us to "play nice now." We're way beyond the point where we'd listen to that.

    No, I suspect that at least half of his base believe his lies and see this shutdown as being caused by the democrats.

    This reminds me of America before WW2 where all the ills were blamed on the Jews. And they were turned away when they fled Germany and Europe from persecution and death. They were treated like “vermin” spreading their culture and germs, infecting the pure Americans.

    Its simply nauseating. And the Repubs in Congress are going along with it. If USA survives this administration and its ilk, history will judge the enablers very harshly.

    And how Conway can stomach his wife is anyone’s guess. Perhaps theyre both opportunists and see the glittery fame and money as the true goal. Though shalt not worship the golden calf.

    If you missed it, here is Pelosi & Schumer's rebuttal. Very good.
    If you didn't see Trumps speech, it plays right after Pelosi & Schumer on this link.

    I have wondered if she is our “deep throat”.imagine she is our mole but has to stay working for Trump to be able to get information to sabotage Trump.

    This segment of the Twitler's speech this evening was especially typical of him, I think:

    Some have suggested a barrier is immoral. Then why do wealthy politicians build walls, fences and gates around their homes? They don't build walls because they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside.
    He and his followers love barriers, and it is this attitude--that you have to circle the wagons for protection against some "others" who seem threatening because they're different from themselves (a different color, speaking a different language, having a different world view, or just poorer)--that is at the root of intolerance and fascism.

    I can only hope that enough people in the US will see this attitude for what it is and say a loud,resounding No to it. It's taking entirely too long for this to happen.

    DT ordered FEMA to cut off aid to California for wildfire recovery:

    https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry...b0dbd06602784d

    He says California needs to "get its act together." Most of the burn areas are federal land, which isn't California's responsibility.

    There is no humanitarian crisis at the border requiring a wall. But the entire town of Paradise was wiped out, and 86 people died. Climate change is a humanitarian crisis ~ just ask the folks, who have endured hurricanes, fires, and earthquakes. Our infrastructure is crumbling, which also contributes to property damage and loss of life.

    Humanitarian crises, much of which can be attributed to the U.S. involvement in Central America, are what drives migrants to flee their countries and seek refuge and safety in the U.S.

    The 800,000 federal employees, who are not being paid, and the contractors associated with federal projects are a humanitarian crisis.

    Employees of the U.S. Coast Guard who are facing a long U.S. government shutdown just received a suggestion: To get by without pay, consider holding a garage sale, babysitting, dog-walking or serving as a “mystery shopper.”
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/natio...=.5961229daa13

    And the millions of Americans, who depend upon federal services, which are being slowed or halted, are a humanitarian crisis.

    Today, DT stormed out of a meeting with Chuck and Nancy, when he asked if he was going to get his wall, and Nancy flatly said, "No."

    Hey, America! How great are we now?!

    Recently the White House occupant stated that the wall he would like would be "artistically designed steel slats," probably like this:



    "Mother, did it have to be so high?"
    --from Pink Floyd, "The Wall"

    During lunch today, Jim and I watched MTP Daily on MSNBC. At the end, Chuck Todd showed a mashup clip from a 1958 TV show, “Trackdown,” starring Robert Culp. The storyline is about a grifter named Walter TRUMP, who attempts to convince townsfolk that he can save them from a meteorite by building a wall.

    https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry...b0c469d76cbfd3

    The entire episode is posted, but the mashup can be seen in the Alex Hirsch 2:18 minute clip.

    Next, Ari Melber began his show with the definition of “emergency:”

    "If you can delay something, or schedule it, or decide later whether or not it exists, it's probably not an emergency."
    Scroll down to his 4th tweet:

    https://twitter.com/arimelber?lang=en

    How dictionary.com defines “emergency:”

    a sudden, urgent, usually unexpected occurrence or occasion requiring immediate action. a state, especially of need for help or relief, created by some unexpected event
    Of course, this is all in response to DT stating that he may or may not decide at some point to declare a National Emergency to get his wall.

    Finally, DT has been raving about walls and wheels, claiming both are medieval, and that the wheel was invented before the wall. Um … WHAT? NO!

    Every day, I am more horrified that this person holds the office of President of the United States.
