Stop Normalizing Horrible People

Conway Story.jpg

The Washington Post is out with a big story about Kellyanne and George Conway, and it is how people who engage in terrible behavior in the public sphere end up being normalized and accepted. This story is written for a select few who are concerned that, when the Trump Regime is driven from power, it might be impossible for Kellyanne to make a living. You can see that in the language that people use when discussing current Trump supporters and former associates. They are to be shunned, you see, and someone wants to trade a little access for the favor of letting the Conways continue to work their schemes and collect their fees.

Few Americans really know these people or care about them, but they are leftovers from the 1990s and the demonization of the Clintons. They are liars and grifters, and it doesn't matter if one of them supports Trump and one of them doesn't--flip their loyalties around, and they'll just find a way to sell themselves to someone else and make a living.

These articles are garbage, but they feed a machine that the Washington Post needs. Trade a little access, normalize some vicious scum, and watch how CNN finds a way to give Kellyanne a job in three years time, commenting on Democrats and whomever else.

This is a garbage article, filled with just enough to keep the Beltway crowd interested. Our political systems and the institutions that our elites are supposed to protect are a complete and utter shit sandwich and these people want to play games with people's lives. What a horror show.

 

Who Let All This Trash Into the White House?

All This Trash.jpg

One of the things that is completely and utterly inexcusable about the Trump Regime is the fact that it has allowed the absolute worst possible human beings to walk into the White House and act like trash:

Secret tapes. Nondisclosure agreements. A lot of name calling.

The revelations surrounding Omarosa Manigault Newman's new memoir, and the ensuing fallout, are underscoring a level of dysfunction many now see as just part of life under President Donald Trump.

On Monday, the former senior aide revealed a recording she'd made of the President phoning her on the day after she was fired. Earlier, Manigault Newman released a tape of chief of staff John Kelly doing the firing in the White House Situation Room.

Neither contained outwardly embarrassing language. But the tapes' mere existence confirmed a longstanding reality: in Trump's White House, there are few norms or expectations of decorum that cannot be shattered.

    Now, aides are wondering who else might be using a recording device to capture audio from private conversations. And they are girding for Manigault Newman to release more of her tapes, which she has teased at in a string of television interviews.

    These people are all garbage. Never mind the obvious fact that they don't care about national security and don't know the first thing about protecting America's secrets. Never mind the fact that they have no idea how to operate with any honor or dignity. Never mind that they are the scum of of the Earth, subsisting on nutrients gleaned from the ass-end of a dirty pond filled with poison and non-potable water. 

    Have there been awful people in the White House before? Sure, and I'm not talking Palin and Nugent. But this is the worst of the worst, the dregs of a society that is actually full of talented and qualified people, none of whom would work for Trump for a million dollars a day. If you want something to hope for, think of everyone who passed on working for this president and know that there are better days ahead.

    Days when we will not know what a fucking Omarosa is.

    Rudy Giuliani Knows Nothing

    There's a good reason why Rudy Giuliani is out there, spouting nonsense. It distracts from other issues, it sends the press off in all directions, and it lets Trump supporters think there is a real effort to defend the president from being impeached.

    You can't read this and conclude that Rudy knows what he is talking about:

    President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani claims that special counsel Robert Mueller told him he’d complete his obstruction of justice probe by Sept. 1. In an interview on CNN’s State of the Union, Giuliani suggested that Mueller had set that deadline so the investigation wouldn’t interfere with November midterm elections. “September 1 was the date that Bob Mueller gave me back two months ago,” he said. “I thought he meant, well that’ll keep us clear of the election. And they did say something like they didn’t want to repeat some of the mistakes that Comey made,” he said, referring to former FBI director James Comey. 

    Did Mueller really give him that date? Who knows? Monday will come and go and no one will respond to Giuliani's bullshit. That's how this works. And Rudy knows that Mueller's office will remain silent, no matter what he says. So it is to his advantage to throw everyone off of the scent and distract from the real issue here, which is that we're very near to finding out how Trump and his campaign lackeys committed a conspiracy to defraud the United States by accepting Russian assistance during the 2016 election.
