Bwahaha! Trump tweets video of Hannity interviewing MATT WHITAKER about the whistleblower.

I'm not posting it here, because it IS "Republican Talking Points"...just letting you know that it's at the top of Trump's Twitter feed right now, and the graphic behind Hannity says "SMEAR CAMPAIGN."

He's not having a fun weekend, it appears.

Shane Gillis proves that getting fired by SNL wasn't a deterrent to his being a racist prick.

Shane Gillis returned to stand-up Wednesday night following the #SNL controversy: “I’m fine with the consequences... But I do want everyone to know that I’ve been reading every one of my death threats in an Asian accent” https://trib.al/vLKzWDQ

WaPo: Yes, there is something the House can do to punish Trump right now

Yes, there is something the House can do to punish Trump right now

Many Democrats have made the case that this is impeachable behavior on Trump’s part. Many others — including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) — point out that impeaching Trump would be a futile gesture, because the Republican-led Senate would never vote to remove him from office. Those who are resisting impeachment also raise a valid concern that, whatever the merits, the backlash over a drawn-out impeachment proceeding could actually help Trump win a second term.

This argument will continue, with new fuel being added by the administration’s refusal to turn over a whistleblower’s complaint regarding the Trump-Zelensky conversation. It is hard to see how it could possibly be resolved before we are well into the 2020 campaign season. But there is something the House could do right now, an idea that I have raised before: censure the president.

The procedure for doing so is pretty straightforward, as spelled out in a recent report by the Congressional Research Service:

Should a House committee report a non-Member censure resolution, the full House may consider it by unanimous consent, under the Suspension of the Rules procedure, or under the terms of a special rule reported by the Committee on Rules and adopted by the House. 17 If widespread support exists for the censure resolution, unanimous consent or the Suspension of the Rules procedure may be used. Otherwise, the resolution could be brought to the floor under a special rule reported by the Committee on Rules. All three of these parliamentary mechanisms require, at a minimum, the support of the majority party leadership in order to be entertained.


In other words, a censure resolution could be brought to the House floor with support from Democrats alone, and it would not require any action on the part of the Senate.

Biden in Des Moines: "Trump's doing this because he knows I'll beat him like a drum"

VIDEO at the URL.

On Saturday in Des Moines, Iowa, former Vice President Joe Biden furiously laid into President Donald Trump amid reports he tried to strong-arm the Ukrainian government into digging up dirt on him and his son.

“Here’s what I know, I know Trump deserves to be investigated,” said Biden. “He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be asking him the question, why is he on the phone with a foreign leader trying to intimidate a foreign leader, if that’s what happened? That appears to have happened. You should be looking at Trump. Trump’s doing this because he knows I’ll beat him like a drum and he’s using the abuse of power and every element of the presidency to try to do something to smear me.”

“Depending on what the House finds, he could be impeached, but I’m not making that judgment now,” continued Biden. “This appears to be an overwhelming abuse of power. To get on the phone with a foreign leader who is looking for help from the United States and ask about me and imply things — if that’s what happened, that appears to be what happened — we know that’s what Giuliani did. This is outrageous. You have never seen anything like this from any president.”

“I know what I’m up against,” Biden added to reporters asking whether it changes anything for his campaign. “I know what I’m up against, a serial abuser. That’s what this guy is. Abuses power anywhere he can, and if he sees any threat to his staying in power, he’ll do whatever he has to do. But this crosses the line. This crosses the line. I’m calling the president to release the transcript of the call, let everybody hear what it is. Let the House see it and see what he did. That’s what I’m calling on.”

@realDonaldTrump

Now that the Democrats and the Fake News Media have gone “bust” on every other of their Witch Hunt schemes, they are trying to start one just as ridiculous as the others, call it the Ukraine Witch Hunt, while at the same time trying to protect Sleepy Joe Biden. Will fail again!

Rep. Joe Kennedy III: Trump "is a scared, power thirsty man begging for" impeachment

Rep. Joe Kennedy III
@RepJoeKennedy

This isn’t asking a foreign country for help, this is a scared, power thirsty man begging for it. If we don’t impeach him, he’ll only get worse.

Tweety just referred to Roy Cohn as "Bronx born, charismatic..."

I've read plenty of descriptions of Cohn, but i think this is the first time I've seen the word "charismatic" used.

A lizard sunning itself on a rock can be charismatic, I guess, but...

The NYT's Ken Vogel on Biden. Two tweets comment on the video, draw your own conclusions.

@AshaRangappa_

So basically Vogel is saying that if Trump and Rudy would tone it down and not make it so obvious that they are illegally seeking foreign election assistance it would be much easier for the NYT to help them weaponize the disinformation they are trying to spread 🤔

Aaron Rupar
@atrupar

Here's @kenvogel of the New York Times saying on MSNBC that he views Joe Biden son's work in Ukraine as "a significant liability for Joe Biden." "There is a story here," Vogel adds, saying "we're going to continue to, sort of, pull that back." (I'm sure Trump is very grateful!)

The average is 42%: https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/trump-approval-ratings/



Trump: "Our nuclear was getting very tired, now we have it in tippy top shape. Tippy top."

Note: I hopefully cued this one up to the moment of the remarks when I grabbed the embed code.

He was asked "What if the sanctions against Iran don't work," and the remark in the subject line was part of his response.
