That would make Trump the Bartlet in this metaphor. First of all: Bartlet would tell you it's "whom." Second of all: OH, PLEASE.

Who's the cat who won't cop out, when Senate Republicans are all about?

Joe. Can ya dig it?

Former Vice President Joe Biden personally lobbied Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) before the senator cast a crucial vote taking down a Republican attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act, according to The Washington Post.

The call between the two was emotional, according to the Post. McCain was recently diagnosed with the same kind of brain cancer that Biden’s son Beau died of in 2015. Joe Biden served in the Senate from 1972 until 2008, while McCain has been a senator since 1987.

While Biden lobbied McCain, former President Barack Obama remained quiet on the issue as the Senate was on the verge of dismantling a core piece of his legacy (An Obama spokesman did release a statement after the Republican effort failed on Friday.).

Former Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.), a close friend of McCain, also lobbied him to oppose the bill, according to the Post.


BREAKING: Anthony Scaramucci sues Showtime over new sitcom, "YO! Watch Out For The C*ck!"

No link yet...breaking news.

Anthony Scaramucci sues Showtime over new sitcom, "YO! Watch Out For The C*ck!"

Pictured above: Actor Tony Danza as "Tony Smith" in the new Showtime sitcom "YO! Watch Out For The C*ck!"

HOLLYWOOD CA - Showtime Networks revealed today that they are entangled in a lawsuit with President Trump's pick for his new Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci. Known for his flamboyant personal style and self-described "colorful" language, Scaramucci's attorneys claim that the new sitcom is an "unauthorized use of the likeness and personal conversations of our client. We are seeking $19 million in damages."

By a remarkable coincidence, $19 million is the same amount of money that Scaramucci stands to earn from the pending sale of his company.

The Showtime sitcom focuses on the life, loves, and misadventures of "Tony Smith," a hedge fund manager whose favorite catch phrase is "YO! Watch Out For The C*ck!" every time someone invades his personal space, or he feels that he has been insulted. Actor Tony Danza reportedly wears multiple facial prosthetics and spends a minimum of ten hours in the makeup chair before each shoot. When asked about his uncanny resemblance to Scaramucci, Danza replied "Really? Hmmm...I'm not seein' it."

Actress Kate Hudson portrays Tony's wife, DeeDee. When informed that Scaramucci's wife's name is Deidre, and that it might be one reason why attorneys feel the sitcom is too close to reality, Danza replied "Really? Hmmm...I'm not seein' it."

In the premiere episode, DeeDee is summoned to the TV by Tony, who announces "YO! Baby! Will you look at that? It's the fuckin' WHITE HOUSE! I'm gonna be workin' right THERE some day, baby! LOOK! Right THERE! It's TRUMP! Me and the fuckin' DONALD, baby!"

The embattled DeeDee replies "DONALD! Donald, Donald, Donald! All I evah heah is "DONALD!" Why don't you just go MARRY the Donald?"

A visibly agitated Tony replies "YO! Watch Out For The C*ck!" as the laugh track plays and the episode fades to the closing credits.

When informed that Scaramucci is facing divorce from his wife over his pro-Trump sentiments, and that he is currently working in the White House, even though he has not been officially hired, Danza replied "Really? Hmmm...I'm not seein' it."

"YO! Watch Out For The C*ck!" premiers on Showtime October 1st.

Sessions as Secretary of Homeland Security? RICK PERRY...or CRUZ...as Attorney General?

Here’s how Admiral Kelly and Ted Cruz just might save Sessions’ — and Trump’s — butt

But Trump could nominate Sessions to be the Secretary of Homeland Security and then use the “The Vacancies Reform Act of 1998” to laterally move in a new Attorney General – absent consent from the senate on fitness for the position. Washington Post reporter Philip Bump had Georgetown Law professor Paul Butler explain this scenario.

“So, in other words, if Sessions were to resign, President Trump could appoint, say, Rick Perry, the Secretary of Energy, to be the acting Attorney General?” Bump asked.

“The answer is yes,” Prof. Butler replied.

Since Trump announced who would be replacing Priebus but not who would replace Kelly, there is rampant speculation that this is the first step in an effort to quash the Russia investigation.

“I know it’s a crazy thought, but what if Trump tries to put Sessions at DHS as a way of getting a new Attorney General to fire Mueller?” Tufts professor Dan Drezer wondered.


Trump: Senate Dems "laughing at R's," Senate Republicans "look like fools, just wasting time"

Republican Senate must get rid of 60 vote NOW! It is killing the R Party, allows 8 Dems to control country. 200 Bills sit in Senate. A JOKE!

The very outdated filibuster rule must go. Budget reconciliation is killing R's in Senate. Mitch M, go to 51 Votes NOW and WIN. IT'S TIME!

Republicans in the Senate will NEVER win if they don't go to a 51 vote majority NOW. They look like fools and are just wasting time......

....8 Dems totally control the U.S. Senate. Many great Republican bills will never pass, like Kate's Law and complete Healthcare. Get smart!

If the Senate Democrats ever got the chance, they would switch to a 51 majority vote in first minute. They are laughing at R's. MAKE CHANGE!

Andy Card tells Ari Melber that the Priebus thing was "tawdry, awkward, uncomfortable and unfair"

"But...we have to move on."

Christie, Priebus and Romney to form new supergroup, CPR

And yes, I know David Crosby had a band called CPR with his son, James Raymond.

WASHINGTON DC - Former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus announced on Friday that he will be the latest member of a new super group featuring former Massachusetts Governor and Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. The band will be under the name CPR. As Priebus notes, "Chris and Mitt were scratching their heads over the name, but when my schedule suddenly became free after this afternoon's tweets from the President, it all came together."

Governor Christie notes "We all have something in common. The President invited Governor Romney to dinner, fed him snails, screwed him over, and kicked him to the curb. I used to fetch his lunch at McDonald's. He screwed me over, and kicked me to the curb. Reince...well, I'm sure you got the picture."

When asked what style of music the band would play, Romney revealed "It will be a mix of easy listening and thrash metal. I like to call it "Easy Thrash." We play elevator music at an eardrum-busting volume. There will also be a little reggae, and we have a few songs that sound like Spandau Ballet at their peak."

CPR's first televised live appearance will be on the upcoming Saturday Night Live's season opener. Their album, "You Ain't So Yuge," will be available on iTunes on August 1st, and will stream on Spotify one week later.
