In other news, Trump unilaterally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel today, ignoring the advice of virtually the entire world. The United States is now the only country that recognizes the city as the capital. The State Department has warned Americans across the region to keep a low profile because Trump might get them killed.

Meanwhile, a new study says the richest 1 percent of Americans no own 40 percent of the nation's wealth, the highest level since 1962. That's before the GOP tax bill is signed into law.

Finally, the Trump Organization is losing its biggest tenant. Nike has announced that they're dumping their flagship store at Trump's property on East 57th street in New York City.

We're 2 days away from a possible government shutdown.

    Silly to post a movie clip regarding Jerusalem, especially one in which the dialogue is spoken by a guy who would have loved the Tangerine Nightmare, but it sums up my feelings perfectly.

    The venality of the GOP is unparalleled. Goram Frelling worms.

    Nike should have told Trump to stick it’s famous Nike Swoosh where the sun don’t shine years ago.

    • Come on, the Ferengi aren’t this bad!

  • Draxiar

    That fat fuckin bastard probably recognized Jerusalem as the capital BECAUSE everyone said not too.

    • Georgie

      Bannon.

    Tell me again what the GOP is shutting the government down for this time? I’m confused. They have the majority in both houses. So what is the problem this time? It can’t be about Obamacare. So what is it now?

    • Draxiar

      DACA…and reasons.

      • Badgerite

        Jesus. These are 800,000 young adults who have basically been raised as Americans. These are not ‘bad hombres’.
        Reasons? I think they are just suffering from GSA. Government Shutdown Addiction.

      Right now, the Freedumb Caucus and House leadership are arguing over whether we should fund the government for 3 weeks or 2 (until the 22nd or the 30th)

      Beyond that, there’s the issue of DACA. Democrats are withholding support for a continuing resolution because they want concessions.

        Ah. Thanks. On the first – can’t they just flip a coin or split the difference?
        On the second – then bargain. Problem solved. Art of the deal?
