Need a Scott Pruitt one, too.

Totally. Some really horrid images aimed at President Obama, and then also Hillary Clinton,

come immediately to my mind.

AND that reprehensible t-shirt: "Rope. Tree. Journalist."

And nobody much cared about that, much less throw a shit-fit about it.

I do not condone that image. Let me just go on the record about that. Yes she pushed it a little bit too far. But let's get - AND KEEP - some perspective about this.

Besides, as a retired reporter/anchor, gotta say - about that "Rope. Tree. Journalist" t-shirt - it's fucking PERSONAL. And nobody's condemned that, as far as I've seen or heard, except for Joy Reid.

OR that charming darling Corey Lewandowski!

I find it greatly amusing that so many openings in the White House and administration remain unfilled - because nobody wants them! NOBODY wants to work for this guy! The clear thinkers out there who still maintain some grip on reality know better than to sign up with this bunch and get it all over themselves. They evidently understand you can't wash that kind of stain off your resume. People like Mattis and McMaster are pretty much finished, as far as whatever credibility they once had. And as for those who already had very little credibility (lookin' at YOU, reince!), they're more screwed than ever.

I think the "mark of trump" will be a difficult one to get over, once it's been attached.

Not as much as OUR impatience with getting him OUT of America's White House!

Just remember - we now have TWO consecutive GOP "wins" that were achieved by cheating.

It's now proven that this is the only way that side of the aisle can win the White House. They can only win when they cheat.

Hey! 20,000th post!

Nice round number! Congrats!

Welcome to DU, Kleveland!

I get a sardonic sense of "humor" about the conservative pal I know who sometimes mumbles "babykillers!" under her breath. Yep! And yet she voted for the guy whose policies will kill ALL babies. Born AND still in the fetus stage. And all babies of all species on earth, too, both animal and vegetable.

AHA!!!! He just came up with a term to excuse all consternation for

losing the popular vote!

My husband just left for work, saying "enjoy your covfefe!"

Welcome to DU, Doug the Dem!

Maybe it's the new term for White House scrambling to explain away looming IMPEACHMENT?

Or maybe that's the launch code?

Welcome to DU, Nasruddin!

Just your typical fun on a Tuesday night (with The Donald)...

About calimary

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.
