Carrot on a Stick

In other news, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has been giving his personal friends VIP tours of national parks, monuments, and memorials according to records obtained by the Washington Post.

“What I personally find ironic about this is that they can’t seem to find the time to perform the basic functions of government, such as nominating the director of the National Park Service after not having one for a year and a half,” said Hellmann, who sits on the executive council of the Coalition to Protect America’s Parks. “Yet they seem to find the time to enjoy all the perks that come with the office.”

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has ruled 5 to 4 that employers can force individual employees into arbitration, effectively forbidding class action against the employer.

Finally, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the Trump regime will impose the "strongest sanctions in history" on Iran.

Iran’s president summarily dismissed Pompeo’s demands.

“Who are you to decide for Iran and the world?,” the semi-official ILNA news agency quoted Hassan Rouhani as saying.

“The world today does not accept America to decide for the world, as countries are independent ... that era is over ... We will continue our path with the support of our nation.”

He's not wrong.

    I think trump misheard Roosevelt’s phrase ‘speak softly and carry a big stick’ as ‘speak loudly and play with a small prick’ and thought, “I do both of those already! I Win!”

    • You win the Interwebs today, my friend.
