Ten Pages vs. Four Pages Is Outrageously Long

Trump, rationalizing why he is blocking the Democratic response to the Nunes memo:

“The Democrats sent a very political and long response memo which they knew, because of sources and methods (and more), would have to be heavily redacted, whereupon they would blame the White House for lack of transparency,” the president wrote on Twitter. “Told them to re-do and send back in proper form!”

Yeah. He wants it in a form he can “read.”

“Here you go, Daddy. The new Democrat memo. Try to pay attention, O.K.?”

That’s the only explanation for this comment:

“I mean, to see sort of congenital, presumptive obstruction and negativity is very concerning,” she continued, “because it just means that the government can’t function fully, and that they’re obstructing regardless of who the individual is that’s being considered, regardless of the post that needs to be filled. And it’s very frustrating.”

You Can’t, But You Did, Mr. Comey

From Politico:

During the intelligence hearing, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) noted the extensive ties between Trump advisers and the Russian government and pointed to an interview shortly after the election in which a top Russian diplomat said his government had had “contacts” with the Trump campaign.

Wyden then asked FBI Director James Comey, “Has the FBI investigated these reported relationships, and, if so, what are the agency’s findings?”

“I would never comment on investigations, whether we have one or not, in an open forum like this,” Comey said Tuesday. “So I really can’t answer it one way or another.”

He later acknowledged he was sometimes “tone deaf when it comes to politics.”

Overweight Gasbag Mansplains Beauty for Us.

Former Speaker Newt Gingrich on Wednesday defended Donald Trump’s remarks about a former Miss Universe’s weight gain, blaming the woman for gaining the weight. 

“You’re not supposed to gain 60 pounds during the year that you’re Miss Universe,” Gingrich told a Log Cabin Republicans event in Washington, according to the Daily Mail.

I get more than a little tired of men (Trump, I’m lookin’ at you, too) who are in incredibly poor physical shape and yet they feel they are the arbiters of what women should look like.

I worked for a doctor who looked like Gingrich here and, because of his wealth, was married to a very slim woman. (She later divorced his ass after the kids were gone.) This doctor used to criticize women of normal weight and looks as not being up to his high standards. I just wanted to scream, “Have you looked in the mirror??!”

Last night on “Full Frontal” with Samantha Bee, she played the clip from the debate where Trump goes on and on about Hillary not looking presidential and her lack of “stamina.” Samantha finally says, “Why don’t you just come out and say ‘penis’?” Exactly.
