I wish he'd just get to the "tissue boxes on feet" stage and leave us alone.

In his defense, accountability isn't his strong suit. Or responsibility. Or credibility.

Anything remotely related to following rules just chaps his ass in a big way.

It's difficult to loot the Treasury when someone is keeping track of what you're stealing.
 
2020-04-08 12:39:38 PM  
I really don't think there is anything we can do to this man at this point, do you?
 
2020-04-08 12:40:53 PM  
He's going to do whatever he wants and nobody can or will stop him.

Marcus Aurelius: It's difficult to loot the Treasury when someone is keeping track of what you're stealing.


Yeah, someone told him his attempt at a line item veto for the stimulus check wouldn't fly, so instead he's replacing all the people who would be appointed to look over his shoulder while he empties the vault.

It's a farking fatal flaw in our system that the president is free to interfere in the processes intended to keep him in check.

Hopefully the second amendment people can do something about all the terrorists.

I know this isn't the thing to focus on... but "Fail swoop".  God dammit it is fell swoop.

Jeebus farking Christ, so then there will be no inspector generals to oversee the trillions of dollars being doled out to Trump's hotels and Jared failed buisnesses and their friends? Welcome to despotic oligarchy. It only took 3 years....

Fail Swoop is indeed appropriate though.

Oh, there will be inspector general's all right but only the ones that past his farking loyalty tests.

Hahahaha and you people who think elections in November are still happening. I have some bad news for you.

They do what they want and nothing is stopping them. Next week I bet they start jailing reporters who ask "nasty" questions.
 
2020-04-08 12:47:28 PM  
Is it time to ask our military to enforce the rule of law against the white house?
 
2020-04-08 12:48:21 PM  
So wait I've been told people skew right because they are deeply concerned about freedom.  And that "socialism" would curtail civil liberties.

Am I now to understand that this was a lie all along??
 
2020-04-08 12:50:13 PM  
Republicans need to be Tecumseh'd off the face of the earth.
 
2020-04-08 12:50:13 PM  
What a miserably stupid country.

FTFT: Breaking: Trump is firing 7 IGs in one fail swoop, sources confirm to @RealClearNews. Most likely will be the IGs that were appointed by Pres. Obama or beforehand. He wants his own people in those positions now. Trump during his briefing said he has "put in 7 names" for IGs.

Still works.

CarnySaur: He's going to do whatever he wants and nobody can or will stop him.


IG's work for the executive branch.....so yeah, he can change them whenever he wants

Yes, she was seen muttering together with several others. So let's not abandon all hope.

Or affability. Or ability...

There's no cavalry coming in to rescue the nation. He'll just keep going and going until he is dead. And you know that evil old feck is going to live into his 90's.
 
2020-04-08 12:54:14 PM  
jill stein wouldn't have fired anyone

The 7 names: Pickle, Hannity, Tucker, Gary Busey, Ted Nugent and Steven Seagal.

Other options: a random UFC wrestler who just arrested again, Kanye West, Joe Rogan, Scott Baio, James Wood, Balki from Perfect Strangers, Bernie Madoff, Martin Shkreli, Ian Watkins, Lindsey Lohan and the omelette guy at Mar A Lago.

That last sentence= avatar certainly checks out.

I'd say 2.5 years ago.

GOP talking point: he's in charge of that branch and they serve at his pleasure. He can fire whomever he wants to.

This is one messed-up system.

Oh no, not Balki!

If only we could have prevented a stupid farking greedy racist asshole from becoming president.

But her emails.

the breaking glass moment was when SCOTUS told Americans to go vote in a pandemic to serve their republican masters
 
2020-04-08 1:16:28 PM  
Oh, the Break Glass moment was at least an Impeachment back, before that it was all the other warning bells.

At this point? the fire extinguisher in the hallway you break the glass for isn't going to stop this gasoline fueled junk yard tire fire.

I think we're beyond a tire fire and into at least a full Centralia at this point.

n/m, somehow I didn't see that you had included him!

Republicans were already preparing to steal the election.  Now corona virus provides all the more opportunity to do so.  Jesus fark, I am frightened.

Yeah, that wasn't a typo. It was perfect.

ImpendingCynic: It's a farking fatal flaw in our system that the president is free to interfere in the processes intended to keep him in check.


Yep. And because his cult has ingrained itself into our idiotic two-party system, there's not a goddamn thing we can legally do about it.

A tourniquet won't re-attach the leg, but if you don't stop the farking bleeding, that is kinda irrelevant.

The Judical and Legislative branches check the Executive.  The Executive branch does not check the Executive branch.

He can't live without attention, so he'll never make that leap...
