The Associated Press Fakes Up the Most Absurd Trump “Scandal” Yet

  • Tired of all this winning yet?  Part I – After a decade of chronic declines, Christmas season retail sales in the United States jumped up by $33 billion this year.  Maybe having a President who actually calls the season by its proper name has something to do with that.
  • Tired of all this winning yet?  Part II – If you thought that UN Ambassador Nikki Haley’s admonitions to the collection of grifters, miscreants, perverts and thieves who make up the general assembly of the United Nations last week amounted to nothing but hot air, think again.  Ambassador Haley gave Americans an early Christmas present on Christmas eve by announcing that she had negotiated a real, true reduction of $285 million in the UN’s general budget for FY 2018-19.  “The inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well known,” Haley said. “We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or remain unchecked.”  It isn’t enough – it can never be enough until the UN is eliminated from existence – but it is a start.
  • A Los Angeles psychotic, er, psychologist took credit for delivering a box of manure to the home of Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on Saturday, telling a fake reporter that what he did was “like Jesus.”  Yes, because we all remember that story about how Jesus divided up that single box of manure to feed hundreds of people, or something.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
  • Someone at the Justice Department leaked out the news over the weekend that FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, one of the key players in the Deep State cabal, is planning to retire in a few months when he becomes eligible for retirement benefits.  So, this guy, who apparently was a key cog in a coordinated effort at the FBI and DOJ to first deny Trump the presidency, and then to work to undermine a sitting president after he took office, is planning to just quietly slink away along about March and live off the largesse of taxpayers for the remainder of his life.
  • Not surprisingly at all, President Trump had a little problem with this plan, tweeting the following on Saturday:  “How can FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the man in charge, along with leakin’ James Comey, of the Phony Hillary Clinton investigation (including her 33,000 illegally deleted emails) be given $700,000 for wife’s campaign by Clinton Puppets during investigation?”, and “FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is racing the clock to retire with full benefits. 90 days to go?!!!”  Oh, it’s going to be so much fun watching this one play out in 2018.
  • The Associated Press has decided that the fact that President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words) has yet to hold a formal state dinner is some sort of scandal.  “Not since Calvin Coolidge in the 1920s has a president ended his first year in office without hosting a foreign leader for a state visit,” the article declares.
  • One supposes that the AP decided to belch out this piece of rank nitwittery at the end of the year because it has run out of actual, real failings to point to regarding the Trump presidency.  After all, they can’t point to the whole “no major legislative achievements” canard anymore with the passage of the tax bill.  They can’t point to his not getting anything real done since he’s rescinded about 90% of the Obama “legacy” at this point.  They can’t keep focusing on the “Russia collusion” issue, given that it has not only been shown to be a pure fantasy concocted by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC, but has also revealed massive wrongdoing by a bunch of Deep State Obama stooges at the FBI and DOJ.  So, in casting about for something new on which to focus their desperate efforts to demean this presidency, they land on state dinners.
  • Let’s be honest here:  The one and only reason why this or any other fake reporter for any of the fake news media outlets wants President Trump to hold a state dinner is so that they can find ways to criticize him for doing so.  Or criticize the shoe choices of First Lady Melania Trump.  Or criticize the seating choices of various members of the visiting country’s diplomatic corps.  Or harp about the fact that he gave Premier X a state dinner before offering one Prime Minister Y.  Or criticize any breaches in “protocol” that might occur.  Or go berserk over some random tweet about the dinner the President would send out the following morning.
  • Here’s a thought:  How about President Trump start the whole state dinner thing by first giving one for Russian President Vladimir Putin?  He could invite Robert Mueller, Andrew McCabe, James Comey, Rod Rosenstein, James Baker, Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr, Peter Strzok and Sally Yates to sit at the head table with Putin and himself.  That should make for lively conversation, and give the ridiculous hens at the AP something real to cluck about.
Just another day in Fake News Media America.
That is all.
