You Say “Shithouse,” I Say “Shithole.” Tomato, To-mah-to. Same Difference.

From New York Magazine:

The Weekly Standard’s Rich Lowry got more specific on This Week, telling Stephanopoulos that his sources told him Trump used the word “shithouse,” not “shithole” — which does not seem like a world of semantic difference.

Hey, Donald. Did You Throw Up a Little in Your Mouth When You Said That?

President Trump signed a proclamation Friday declaring Martin Luther King Jr. Day, one day after making disparaging comments about Haiti and African countries.

“Today we celebrate Dr. King for standing up for the self-evident truth Americans hold so dear, that no matter the color of our skin, or the place of our birth we are all created equal by God,” Trump said Friday ahead of the signing.

Re: Trump’s “Shithole” Comment

Excerpt from CNN article by Chris Cilizza:

These sorts of noxious views are a feature not a glitch for Donald Trump. Everything in his history as a candidate and as President screams for that conclusion. For every “bill of love” pronouncement Trump makes, there are double-digit times in which he has said things — publicly and privately — that any reasonable person would describe as racially tinged at best and flat-out racist at worst.
Let me remind you in case you have forgotten: This is the President of the United States we are talking about. The President of ALL 300 million people — not just the ones who voted for Trump and who might respond well to his “shithole” comments. The President of a country literally built on the idea of a melting pot of immigrants.
The discussion of whether this will resonate with Trump’s base then is deeply cynical and totally misses the point. There need to be things that are right and things that are wrong, things that we can all agree we should do or not do. Whether or not these things have some political resonance with some group of people is immaterial.
We are talking about the President of the United States here! Not some fringe talk radio host? Not some blogger. The single most powerful person in the country. The symbol of the United States to the rest of the world.
Whether or not you voted for Trump, whether or not you still support him, whether or not you think this “shithole” comment will land well with his base, you need to acknowledge that voicing views like these is simply wrong. It is, quite literally, anti-American. Period. Full Stop.

Aaand, Now We’re Back From the Commercial Break

Some scary shit, y’all. He still thinks he’s in a reality TV show.


Trump starts meeting by welcoming press “back to the studio”

President Trump just started his cabinet meeting by telling the assembled press, “Welcome back to the studio. Nice to have you.”

And then, later:

Trump: Yesterday was “one of the greatest meetings ever witnessed”

Actually, it was reported as incredibly good and my performance, some of them called it a performance. I consider it work,” Trump said.

But got great reviews by everybody other than two networks who were phenomenal for about two hours. Then after that, they were called by their bosses and say, oh, wait a minute. And unfortunately, a lot of those anchors sent us letters saying that was one of the greatest meetings they’ve ever witnessed.”

Who Knew Steve Bannon Was Uranus?

From New York Magazine:

It was only a few months ago, in late October, that Bannon introduced Miller to the crowd at a Breitbart Embassy cocktail party as “the last man behind enemy lines.” But when Miller, twitching but steely eyed, said Bannon was an “angry, vindictive person” on CNN Sunday Morning, it was clear those lines had been redrawn around a new enemy. Bannon regarded Miller as something of a protégé, and he proudly took credit for his success; but Miller has acclimated to the ways of Washington, and easily assumed the role of Cronus, who in Greek mythology is the power-hungry son who castrates his father, Uranus, and tosses his balls into the sea.
