Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Tired of all this #Winning yet? – The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) announced on Monday that April was the best month for the federal budget in the nation’s history. CBO officials said the government ran a surplus of $218 billion for the month, which of course is the month in which personal federal income tax returns are due. The government’s intake of $518 billion for the month was $40 billion more than CBO’s analysts had anticipated, which is no surprise given that these are the same analysts who missed the 10-year cost of Obamacare by about half a trillion dollars. The analysts attribute the higher tax income to – guess what? – stronger than anticipated economic growth during Donald Trump’s first year in office.
Oh, you poor thing. – Failed comedian Kathy Griffin, in yet another desperate plea for attention, told her Twitter followers on Monday that she’s just found out she’s been placed “on a brand new ‘Kill List.’ ” It is not clear exactly who Miz Griffin thinks would bother taking the time and energy to try to kill someone so insignificant. But, after predictably taking a shot at President Trump and his “game criminals” and another at…wait for it…Ryan Secrest, Griffin pointed her crooked, blood-soaked index finger at an unlikely source:
“…someone at “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” a “show I have done many times for free, ” has “a ‘problem with me’” and they’re “spreading the word around.”
Man, you just can’t cure crazy.
Yeah, that’s probably not going to help. – California Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein and 11 other Democrat senators sent a letter to the White House on Monday urging President Trump to keep the United States in the terrible, awful, no good very bad deal with Iran. Notably, not a single one of the Democrat hypocrite signatories to this letter voted to allow the U.S. Senate to vote on the deal – every one of them participated in the filibuster to prevent the Senate from exercising its constitutional oversight on international agreements like this. Given that, I’m guessing the President won’t be factoring this letter into his decision-making on the matter.
You might want to consider one of those countries that doesn’t have an extradition treaty with the United States. – The Pantsuit Princess, trying to hide what is obviously a back brace beneath her pantsuit jacket, told an audience that she considered fleeing the country after she lost the election in 2016 to Donald Trump. Claiming she had “gotten some offers” to move to New Zealand in the weeks following Election Day, the Coughing Crook told her audience that “I must say I really did appreciate the offers. Gave them some thought,” Clinton joked. “But I’m going to stay put because we have work to do in my country as well.” Why yes, yes we do. Good of you to notice.
Mr. Schneiderman, your #MeToo Moment has arrived. – New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who has led the “resistance” effort among Democrat state attorneys general to challenge pretty much ever major action taken by the Trump Administration in court, got his #MeToo comeuppance on Monday when The New Yorker filed a report in which four women claim he is a serial woman abuser of the worst kind. The women variously accuse the pompous bully with slapping them, choking them, punching them, and a broad variety of verbal and sexual abuse.
As always happens when public figures become embroiled in a major scandal, people began scouring Schneiderman’s social media accounts for unfortunate postings. The tweet below, issued just a few weeks ago, is a prime example of Schneiderman’s rank hypocrisy:
Without the reporting of the @nytimes and the @newyorker—and the brave women and men who spoke up about the sexual harassment they endured at the hands of powerful men—there would not be the critical national reckoning underway. A well-deserved honor: https://t.co/h4QMPzEU5c

For his part, Schneiderman first posted a denial, ironically using his Twitter account for the purpose:
Statement from Eric T. Schneiderman:
"In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity. I have not assaulted anyone. I have never engaged in non-consensual sex, which is a line I would not cross."
— Eric T. Schneiderman (@Schneiderman) May 7, 2018
Uh, ok. Guess he was also doing a little “role-playing” when he was a featured speaker at the “Women’s March” that took place shortly after Trump’s inauguration in January 2017. Hashtag, irony.
Shortly after that lame tweet, as it became obvious the whole “role-playing” dodge wasn’t going to fly, Schneiderman announced his blessed resignation. Not that that will change anything in New York – the state’s Democrat machine will just plug some other abusive jerk into the job and keep Schneiderman’s efforts to undermine American democracy going. Because that’s what the purpose of today’s Democrat Party has become.
But here’s the best part of all of this. Those enterprising social media scourers also came up with this little gem from Donald Trump’s Twitter feed, circa 2013:
Weiner is gone, Spitzer is gone – next will be lightweight A.G. Eric Schneiderman. Is he a crook? Wait and see, worse than Spitzer or Weiner

It took five years to come about, but once again, Donald Trump just keeps on #Winning. Somewhere, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is cowering in a corner, praying Trump doesn’t issued any tweets targeting him. Hilarious.
Just another day in Donald Trump just keeps on #Winning America.
That is all.
