GOP Pizza: Trump's Steve King, Max Boot, Joe Scarborough

Let's approach our succulent pizza in episodes.

Episode I

The GOP's most racist member of Congress is a favorite for ratings seeking cable news network (shows) Steve King (R-IA) was invited to a CNN segment, and as expect it took little time for unadulterated bigotry and racism to slow as if attending a white supremacist rally. Of course, King's comments about food stamps in the real world is relevant to all recipient races, but recall "food stamps" and "welfare" are dog whistle mantra as far back as Ronald Reagan.

While the core point of the interview was Trump's phantom border wall and King's comments about taking money from Planned Parenthood the Iowa racist quickly moved to GOP stereotypical mantra.

"I'd throw another $5 billion on the pile and I would find a half of a billion dollars of that right out of Planned Parenthood's budget. And the rest of it could come out of food stamps and the entitlements that are being spread out for people that haven't worked in three generations." 
Camerota asked, "You want to take food from people who are the people who are on the lowest rung in terms of the nation's safety net, and their children -- in terms of food stamps, you're happy to take -- you're willing to take money from them to build the $1.6 -- or to give the $1.6 billion for the border wall?"
In case you may have missed it, King declared the wall would generate 10 million jobs. That's 10 million jobs!

Episode II

And one says he is no longer Republican. (at the 1:50 minute mark of the video.)

After listing a few very obviously bigoted and racist reasons many in the GOP should not have voted for Trump, Scarborough went on to eventually state his lack of interest in remaining in the GOP. If you watched the video, and his partner's face  in the video you should have gotten the feeling something interesting was to come.
"Time and time and time again they turned the other way," he lamented. "And they're doing the same thing now. And it's actually disgusting." 
"You have to ask yourself, what exactly is the Republican Party willing to do?" Scarborough asked. "How far are they willing to go? How much of this country and our values are they willing to sell out?" 
"But aren't you a Republican?" Colbert wanted to know. 
"I am a Republican," admitted the "Morning Joe" host. "But I'm not going to be a Republican anymore. I've got to become an Independent."
Big News?  I actually think not so big, but noteworthy.

Episode III (this week's award winning spectacle)

Trump Juniors Bust.  It is worth mentioning I firmly feel Trump Sr. knew of this meeting and I suspect suggested junior attend along with Manafort and Kushner,

Ezra Klein's VOX

Of course, there is much more related to the Trump email scandal. We will report more as the knots come closer to appearing irrefutably tight.

Junior goes " retrospect"

"In retrospect" the 47% of eligible voters who did not vote, Trump voters and third party voters should take turns visiting that Mirror of Shame for a close look themselves.

Image result for frightening mirror of shame

They are the real nation killers.
