Quick Hit: A Sick Presidency (VIDEO)

Did someone in 2016 mention the word "deplorables?"

Trump: Cubs, "Surprise Lies", Comey Tapes, Twitter Sleaze

Trump and his Chicago Cubs! 

Now, why did the Cubs have a second opportunity to meet with a US President in the White House? We realize the Cubs owner is a money man for Trump's campaign but could there be another reason? Could the Cubs owner place a premium on having his team meet with a white US President?

OK, so here we go again with over-the-top blustering Bull crap from the world's most prolific carnival barker and con man. We have been down his path before and we went down the path very recently.  Remember the Comey tapes?

When asked about the alleged Comey tapes during his Rose Garden appearance with the Romanian President Trump let loose another case of cognitive flatulence which smelled like a lie.

"I’ll tell you about that, maybe, sometime in the very near future."
"“You are going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer.” 

Well, rational Americans, and even a growing number of Trump supporters, were not surprised. We might have actually been surprised if he delivered actual tapes.

If you need perspective and a reminder of Trumps serial lying, view this short segment from CNN's Anderson Cooper.

While seemingly off topic, we cannot resist visiting with this morning's example of the child with his IPhone.

After viewing the Morning Joe Show and consistent criticism of the child president, Trump burst with a couple of tweets which are well beyond sad and pathetic.

CNN's Brian Steltar published a piece with video of John Berman and Poppy Harlow's CNN segment. link.  If you are a Trump supporter and find the guttural attack even close to palatable, well, you are a "deplorable." 

If you are one who disfavors clicking links, here is the CNN embed.

It is impossible to ignore the serious cognitive deficiencies of Donald Trump, regardless of your political ilk, regardless of your favor or disfavor of Trump or regardless of your real or self perceived status as a "deplorable" or non-deplorable.

As Barack Obama told us. " He is unfit to be president."

VIDEO Quick Hit: Shusssh Senator Kamala Harris; Don't Make Sessions "Nervous"

The Senate may question Sessions and other Trump stooges, but Kamala Harris had best mind her manners.

For the second consecutive hearing John McCain has interrupted questioning from California Democrat Senator Kamala Harris. While Harris questioning was direct and focused on avoiding another case of a rambling witness (with consideration of strict time limits), it is more than coincidental that McCain takes the junior member of the committee to task. Notice I avoided reference to Harris's gender and race with regard to McCain holding his interruptions as Senators from Connecticut and New Mexico also directly challenged an evasive witness.

Let's start with McCain's interruption of Harris during questioning of the acting director of the Justice Department.

As to yesterday's hearing?

We offer the full six plus minutes of Senator Harris's opportunity to question Jeff ("I do not recall") Sessions. 

Wouldn't you know during subsequent discussion of the interruptions would garner what seemed to be a sexist remark from a noted Trump talking head/presstitute.

It was refreshing to see Ms. Powers address the remarks. 

MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski felt compelled to also address the issues.  It is a Baby Boomer male issue without question. It also seems via McCain to be an issue with an undercurrent of one staying in it's place.

Santorum Has Yet Another "BLAH People" Moment ...This One Media Induced)

During his semi-successful primary campaign run in 2012, Rick Santorum went here:

This morning his total aversion to tolerance and his deep-rooted bigotry was cornered like a wild and crazed Alligator. Morning Joe's Mika Brezenski asked the "second tier" Candidate a question that should be posed to each candidate (Republican and Democrat).

Santorum Finally Asked teh $64,000 Question! by thepardu

Santorum seems to be America's Number one perpetual presidential candidate who doesn't seem to have a source of income. Who is funding his bigotry and racism?

TPI Early Morning Gazette: Dinesh D' Souza, Hillary Clinton Photoshop, Trumpisms

Non-Progressive News

We previously devoted a few passages to doctored or edited video from the nation's right-wing political operatives. Last week noted felon and political operative Dinesh D' Souza either fell victim to a nascent Photoshop rouse regarding Hillary Clinton, or he himself performed the Photoshop. In either case, the doctored pictures are posted below for your perusal.

And, this is how it works out.

Tampa  Bay Times ran an analysis on the July 7th D'Souza attack on, Former Sec'y of State and current Democrat candidate Clinton.  

Pants on Fire!D'Souza 
A photograph of 21-year-old Hillary Clinton featured a Confederate battle flag in the background.
— Dinesh D'Souza on Tuesday, July 7th, 2015 in a tweet

Before we leave D'Souza, Newsweek is reporting the conservative operative has been ordered to undergo psychiatric treatment. (linked below).

Dinesh D’Souza was ordered to continue community service and psychological counseling.


It is hard to avoid daily insertions of Trumpism into the Gazette, as he is all the news. Or, is he really all the show?

Trump's visit to the nation's third or fourth most racist state (Arizona), yielded yet another Trump lie. The often deployed exaggerated crowed size at his Phoenix event. Rachel Maddow challenged the crowd size in a follow-up TRMS. (See PunditFact below)

Brahm Resnik, a local news reporter laid the ground work for another Trump revelation with a Twitter blast.

Brahm Resnik, a TV reporter with 12 News in Arizona, questioned on Twitter why Trump would exaggerate an already respectable crowd size as he fact-checked Trump’s crowd-size claims in his reports. (Maddow played one of his reports before making her claim on the show.)

@realDonaldTrump campaign making stuff up. That's 4500 people. Very good crowd. Why inflate? #12News #TrumpInAZ

Here is the Pundifact piece. Read and understand the true nature of the carnival barker.

Despite what Donald Trump claims, "there weren’t 15,000 people who turned out in Phoenix" to see Trump speak.
Rachel Maddow on Monday, July 13th, 2015 in a segment on her show
On another Trump front, his early morning appearance on Morning Joe was met with a direct set of questions and comment from Mika Brzezinski. It is unfortunate Trump's comments and Mika's retort are buried among 19 plus minutes of Trump and Joe Scarborough conservative gobbled-gook. I suggest a skipping through to the most direct media push back on Trump since he announced his campaign.

MSNBC Caught "Playing" To Conservative Viewers

How can the exhibition of the horrid side of Americana lead to the following from the Morning Joe (and minions) Show? You will notice Morning Joe Show producers booked one of America's most regressive conservatives to partake in what can only be described as "deflection." Why not book a more middle-of-the-road conservative for an important and sorely needed critique of an exhibition of Americana the from nation's most privileged and elitist example of white privilege.  Better yet, why not produce a show that simply laid bare the horrid racism and insensitivity to people who may have lost a loved one to lynching? 

The words from Kristol:
“Popular culture becomes a cesspool, a lot corporations profit off of it, and then people are surprised that some drunk 19-year-old kids repeat what they’ve been hearing,” said Bill Kristol. He added that Tipper Gore “tried to raise this issue, and was widely ridiculed,” referring to the parental advisory labels the future V-FLOTUS enacted after her daughter purchased Purple Rain thirty years ago.

“The kids that are buying hip hop or gangster rap, it’s a white audience, and they hear this over and over again,” Joe Scarborough said. “So do they hear this at home? Well, chances are good, no, they heard a lot of this from guys like this who are now acting shocked.”
The video.... 

According to Mediaite.... "UPDATE — 4:15 p.m. ET: Mika Brzezinski addressed her comments, with Al Sharpton beside her, on MSNBC’s The Cycle Wednesday afternoon. " Read more and watch the video clip here.
Crooks and Liars also ran the clip from the Cycle. My thoughts? The clip is nothing more than MSNBC working to cleanup a mess from Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. Frankly, Al Sharpton was noticeable cautious regarding his employers "Stack-ed deck" interview with Ari Melber. Melber did not in any pursue an interview; he merely fulfilled a role from his employer to facilitate Mika's rambling almost Sarah Palin like comments.

Crooks and Liars...


At the end of it all, the only relevant point is why did Joe Scarborough and his co-host even go to HiP Hop/Rap music when the focus should have been on a bus of America's young practicing racism witnessed since the fall of Jim Crow?

The answer is in accordance with Phil Griffin's, NBC President's, edict to un-liberalize the network.
