Obama-appointed US Attorney: Trump “Won’t be Able to Survive” Mueller Report

https://youtu.be/ktgs8c4qTU0

Give the woman credit for candor. She made clear what Dems are banking on: that the Mueller report will bring down President Trump.

On today’s Morning Joe, Joyce White Vance, whom Pres. Obama appointed as US Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama, gave away the game plan. Responding to Joe Scarborough’s question as to why Rudy Giuliani is “lying,” Vance said:

“Giuliani and the President are playing to the court of public opinion, because they know that they’ll lose in a court of law . . . They know bad news will come in the form of a report from Mueller, sooner or later, whether it’s before or after the election. They won’t be able to survive the contents of the report if it’s anything like what we’re hearing publicly.”

Chris Matthews: Almost All Demagogues Like Trump “Died Hideously”

https://youtu.be/SLrbdXO0o30

So what does Chris Matthews foresee for President Trump: hanging by the ankles like Mussolini, or firing squad like Ceausescu?

On his MSNBC “Hardball” show, after former acting CIA director John McLaughlin refers to President Trump as a “tyrant,” Matthews says:

“Following your lines, I’ve often thought that demagoguery is not a good long-term career move. The only one I know that got a long-time career out of it was [Spain’s Generalissimo] Franco. The rest of them all died hideously.”

WaPo’s Robinson: Trump’s Pulling of Brennan Clearance Should be Article of Impeachment

https://youtu.be/gTszF-eszP8

The left continues to lose its collective mind over President Trump’s decision to revoke John Brennan’s security clearance. Yesterday, we noted Andrea Mitchell suggesting that Trump’s action could constitute “obstruction of justice.”

Today, Washington Post editor/columnist Eugene Robinson, on Morning Joe, took things an absurd step further, saying Trump’s move was grounds for impeachment:

“This is just a blatant abuse of power. I mean, I don’t know what else you can call it. And really should be one of the eventual articles of impeachment.”

Andrea Mitchell: Trump’s Cancellation of Brennan Clearance Could be “Obstruction of Justice”

https://youtu.be/ZgOD3qXdvaE

Can doing something you have the legal right to do nevertheless constitute a crime? Yes . . . according to Andrea Mitchell.

On today’s Morning Joe, just moments after acknowledging that President Trump “has the legal right” to have canceled John Brennan’s security clearance, Mitchell continued:

“Arguably, some people will say, and I’m not a lawyer, but I’m certain that Mueller is looking into this, that this could be another issue of potential obstruction of justice. Whether it is of criminal import or not, it certainly is a question.”

On Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch Calls Trump Fans “Fluffers”

https://youtu.be/vrRy9Hq6s7k

Donny Deutsch might have set a vulgar new low in expressing liberals’ contempt for supporters of President Trump. On today’s Morning Joe, Deutsch referred to a group of Trump supporters as “fluffers.”

For those who might be unfamiliar with the term, “fluffer” is defined as “a person employed on a pornographic film set to ensure that male actors are kept aroused.”

After uttering the slur, Deutsch, a sly smile on his face [see screencap], added, “I just said that word, didn’t I? Well, just metaphorically, of course.”

 

Here’s the full quote:

“An interesting anecdote that somebody told me. When they were at his country club in Bedminster and Trump was about to walk into the room, and some of the Secret Service guys came up to the people he was going to go see and say, ‘hey, when you see the President, say positive things. You know, pump him up.’ They were like basically fluffers in the room, in effect. And — did — I just said that word, didn’t I? Well, just metaphorically, of course.”

Note: In June,  DNC Chairman Tom Perez brought President Obama out onto the stage at a fundraiser by telling the audience, “let’s give it up for the real president of the United States.”

By Deutsch’s logic, what does that make the Dems in attendance?

CNN’s Mudd: “Pisses Me Off” That Trump Failed to Mention McCain at Signing Ceremony

https://youtu.be/zVNMQKhZMJA

Phil Mudd can go from 0-60 faster than a Ferrari. After a long, measured, discussion on CNN this morning about the firing of Peter Strzok [Mudd thought it was the right decision], co-host John Berman invited Mudd, a former CIA and FBI official, to comment on President Trump’s failure to mention John McCain during a signing ceremony of the defense authorization bill named in his honor.

Mudd became immediately enraged, going off on this epic rant:

“Are you kidding me? Let me get this straight. So the President has insulted everybody from former Presidents Bush and Obama, Rex Tillerson, Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorina. The guy’s got the temperament of a second-grader. My mom would have washed my mouth out with soap, and we sit there and say it’s okay if he does it because he’s been doing it for 72 years. You can’t even spend 10 seconds to thank a guy who’s on his deathbed? Really? That’s what we have to go tell a kid is what is presidential? Unbelievable, John. I mean, it just pisses me off.”

De Blasio: Unlike Fox News and NY Post, CNN Doesn’t Have “Political Agenda”

https://youtu.be/deI-FGLhx4A

Hey Bill, the Comedy Shack has open mic night on Tuesdays . . .

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio appeared on Brian Stelter’s CNN show today to discuss his recent interview in which he blamed Fox News and the New York Post, both owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, for “a lot of the negativity and divisiveness we’re going through right now,” saying that the US would be “a more unified country” without News Corp.

In savaging News Corp, de Blasio got off a couple of rib-ticklers. First, he claimed that in contrast with the hated News Corp:

“CNN and the major networks do not harbor a daily, hourly political agenda.”

He then expressed nostalgia for the good old days, when liberals controlled all the major media outlets. He longed for:

“A world without News Corp. A world with the kind of reporting–both sides–and a real devotion to objectivity that was the norm up to the 1970s in this country.”

Spike Lee: Lying, Money-Hungry Conservatives Will “Put Their Mother on the Corner for a Dollar”

https://youtu.be/NKirqCcdeZE

On Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show today, Spike Lee, after castigating President Trump for failing to “condemn hate” in his remarks after Charlottesville last year, said:

“They’ve been able to manufacture, or combine money with hate . . . Just to see these guys get on television and lie, and lie and lie. These guys — let’s go Brooklyn right now — they’ll put their mother on the corner for a dollar.”

Donny Deutsch: Trump’s MAGA Really Means “Make America White Again”

https://youtu.be/j_nkmajaV_M

On today’s Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch attempted to recast Donald Trump’s slogan, “Make America Great Again,” as an unalloyed appeal to racism. During a segment focusing on Laura Ingraham’s remarks on immigration from earlier this week, Deutsch said:

“Donald Trump, once and for all, we need to just really look at what his slogan, Make America Great Again, means. We know what it means. We know what it meant. Make America White Again. And that’s what that slogan always was.”
