War on Christmas

In other news, Trump's deputy national security adviser Dina Powell has announced her resignation. We don't know exactly why she's leaving, but she was a member of Jared Kushner's Israeli/Palestinian peace team and, well, you know the rest.

Meanwhile, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has been caught using government helicopters just to travel around D.C. including a trip to ride horses with Mike Pence. The horseback flight across town cost over $6,200.

Finally, Representative Trent Franks (R-AZ) has resigned effective immediately because he is one sick motherfucker. We learned last night that Franks asked female staffers to bear children for him as surrogate mothers. Politico reports that Franks wanted to have intercourse to impregnate them. The Associated Press also reports that he offered them $5 million.

A government shutdown has been averted, at least for the next 2 weeks. We get to do the shutdown dance all over again on the 22nd.

Have a good weekend.

    Perhaps this “devout” man needs to take his and his wife’s inability to conceive as a sign from God that they are not supposed to conceive? Since they are so “pro life,” maybe reach out to an adoption agency and put their money where their mouth is, instead of subjecting his reports to his gross offer? But no, it’s not about God’s will. It’s about his ego needing to procreate. And even if that means essentially turning his staff into a brood mare, then so be it. Because that’s why women exist on this earth, right?

    *sigh*

      Except that “pro life” is just the acceptable-sounding veneer they put on “I don’t give a shit about children, I just want to I want to control your life so I can feel important.”

      I’ve yet to meet anyone who describes themselves as “pro life” and also supports funding for birth control, prenatal care or orphanages.

    I don’t think *that’s* the definition of “surrogate” at least as it’s commonly used.

    The corruption the Trump Whitehouse has unleashed would only work in fiction if it were intended as parody. $6,200 of tax payer money so two jackoffs could cos-play as cowboys. Jesus…

    It’s not surprising in the slightest that party of Roy Moore is also the party of a man who was looking to use his office staff as his own personal broodmares.

    Happy Friday everyone.
