Weekend ramblings

“How about kids, instead of looking to someone else to solve their problem, do something about maybe taking CPR classes or trying to deal with situations [so] that when there is a violent shooter, that you can actually respond to that?” – Former GOP Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum 

I am not sure what Rick Santorum was watching or listening today yesterday as hundreds of thousands of people from across the country protested at the March for Our Lives in Washington and at satellite marches around the country. What I learned yesterday is very simple, the hope that I have placed in my kids, and your kids is real and the GOP has their head-up their ass.

The weather here was cold, wet and damp yesterday, as it is today, so any extended outdoor activities Saturday were scratched off the to-do list. No bike rides, no hikes, just a few errands and television. My wife and I were awe-struck by the composure, the articulance, and the smarts of the kids who spoke yesterday. They have a mission, they have a plan, now that just need the power and that is coming if it isn’t already here.

“Many lawyers and top law firms want to represent me in the Russia case…don’t believe the Fake News narrative that it is hard to find a lawyer who wants to take this on. Fame & fortune will NEVER be turned down by a lawyer, though some are conflicted. Problem is that a new lawyer or law firm will take months to get up to speed (if for no other reason than they can bill more), which is unfair to our great country – and I am very happy with my existing team. Besides, there was NO COLLUSION with Russia, except by Crooked Hillary and the Dems!” – Trump tweet- 3-25-18

Honestly this tweet would be funny if it weren’t so sad.Many lawyers and top law firms want to represent me in the Russia case”, “don’t believe the Fake News”. “Fame & fortune will NEVER be turned down by a lawyer.”

So what happened to Trumps new “dream team” of attorneys? The answer, as usual, depends on who you want to believe. Here is my version, Mr. Impulsive has been watching attorneys Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing on Fox News and, without having even interviewed them, proclaims they were on his team. Trumps lead attorney, John Dowd, knowing this was another wacky idea threw in the towel and walked away.

Now Trumps story is that diGenova had a conflict, or as he described in the tweet above which is certainly more descriptive, conflicted”.  Yes, I think  diGenova and Toensing were in fact “conflicted”, risk working for this crazy son of a gun and ruin their gigs on Fox News. Probably, possibly, more than likely be on the losing end of the biggest media frenzy since the OJ Simpson trial. And lastly, and probably most important getting paid for the amount of time Trump will suck out of their life. Shit, I would be “conflicted” too. I am just impressed these two had enough sense to run from President Nut Case given how crazy both of them act on Fox pushing their theory that the F.B.I. and Justice Department framed Trump.

“I don’t think anyone knows *what* but we all feel like POTUS is going to do something catastrophically stupid to distract from Stormy Daniels’ interview tonight.” – Angry WH Staffer tweet

“My money is on streaking across the WH lawn, wearing nothing but one of those ugly MAGA caps.” – Susan_Wright tweet

I am expecting Stormy weather tonight so I have a made a big pot of chili and sweet cornbread muffins for THE SHOW. As with most things hyped like the Stormy Daniels, 60 Minutes interview tonight, remember Geraldo Rivera and The Mystery of Al Capone’s Vault, I doubt we learn much new, but I could be wrong. Heck, I hope I am wrong. I wonder if Trump will be watching?

If you feel like you need to prepare for the interview here is The definitive guide to the Stormy Daniels scandal from VOX. Let the games, and tha tweets begin.

    Methinks now is the time to start publicizing, and targeting, those candidates who accept donations from the NRA.

    Rick Santorum, like so many other bureaucrats, has his head up you-know-where to make such an asinine suggestion!

    Oh yes! Be sure to learn how to take care of your fallen friends after they’ve been shot by some crazy idiot with an AR-15! After-the-fact action is sooo much more important than prevention.

    I completely agree E&B. Rick Santorum proved what an asshole he is. I wrote about his comments on my blog as well. Please stop by. Thanks!

  5. Sure, Rick, let’s fault these irresponsible brats for not being up on their first aid techniques. I love when Republicans talk; they always reveal their shameless ignorance.

  6. I had no intention of watching 60 minutes tonight but I did. Rick S is actually just stupid. Mr. Trump is a lying, egotist uninformed and uncaring human being. Ms. Daniels is none of these. He may try to stop Mr, Mueller. He has met his match with Ms. Daniels. Good evening, Melania.

    my hubby George is a registered nurse…he was active duty Army for most of his career and at one point (1991-2) was in charge of a field hospital in Iraq. He saw m-16 wounds. He says they are “exactly the same as wounds from an ar-15″……..and that if shot in an arm or leg, the patient lost the arm or leg permanently..if shot anywhere else there was nothing the doctors could do except call a Chaplin and write a dear family of so-and-so letter”. What exactly do these morons expect kids to do? If a doctor can’t do a damn thing, I seriously doubt cpr will help.
