No Clothes

In other news, Trump is looking for a replacement for Chief of Staff John Kelly who is expected to resign relatively soon according to the Wall Street Journal.

Meanwhile, court records confirm that Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort owed $10 million to Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska. You may recall that Manafort claimed Deripaska owed the money to him.

Finally, House Republicans held an "emergency" Judiciary Committee hearing today on Hillary Clinton's emails where a chicken may have been fucked.

The "press" he's referring to is a Fox News story that claimed Rosenstein threatened members of the Intelligence Committee. It was all bullshit.

    Well there’s press and then there’s State TV, as Steve Schmidt calls them.

      It means barely more than nothing, but thank you for your service.

      Generals (and admirals) are mostly arseholes, partly because the position attracts arseholes and partly because only an arsehole has the endurance to climb the greasy pole in competition with other arseholes.

      Unless you were a Marine Corps general, you have nothing to be ashamed of.

    For all the political disagreement I’m sure I have with John Kelly I would like to respect him for his career as a soldier and even his efforts to act as some kind of check on Trump’s madness. But I’m never going to forget his disgusting slander of Congresswoman Fredericka Wilson

      “…and even his efforts to act as some kind of check on Trump’s madness”

      Would that he’d made any.

    I’m old enough to remember being told John Kelly was going to bring discipline to the West Wing and act as a check to Dump’s worst impulses. He did nothing to rein in the chaos and was an eager enabler of Dump’s most racist, xenophobic, and misogynistic instincts. No doubt that means a cushy job awaits him in conservative circles.

      The expansion of “wingnut welfare” continues apace. (h/t owed to driftglass I think)
