Ooh, I Love the Imagery!

From Politico, by Jack Shafer:

It was only a couple of months ago that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was Trump’s public piñata, subject to the president’s ridicule on Twitter But the visible beating Trump gave the AG, we learned this week, was nothing compared to the private scouring he gave him in May when he learned that sacking Comey had resulted in the appointment of special counsel Robert S. Mueller. Trump erupted like a barrel of Mentos dropped into a swimming pool of Diet Coke, the New York Times reported, and directed his ire at Sessions, who was in the Oval Office with the president when the Mueller news arrived. Trump blamed him personally and loudly for having set the special counsel investigation into motion with his recusal in March. It’ll be a long time before people stop hearing the word “idiot” spoken in Trump’s voice when they see Sessions on TV.

Maybe While He’s “Bathing in White Privilege” We Can Hold His Head Under.

White nationalist Richard Spencer:

“I don’t use the term white nationalist to describe myself,” he has said. “I like the term alt-right. It has an openness to it. And immediately understandable. We’re coming from a new perspective.”
He told CNN he wants to make “white privilege great again.”
“Ultimately, America is a white country,” he told CNN’s W. Kamau Bell in an episode of “United Shades of America.”
“We bring a level of civilization. We’re more interested in power. We’re more interested in exploration and domination. I just want to bathe in white privilege.”

Ya Think?

From Politico:

But it wasn’t until Monday — some 48 hours after the deadly events — that Trump made a bid to assume the role of “empathizer-in-chief,” reading out publicly the names of those who had died while directly condemning the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and white supremacists.

Trump’s initial wavering was seen by critics as a political nod to a base of supporters who helped lift the Republican last November to the White House. It also reflected something seen throughout Trump’s presidency: His natural instinct has been to respond with force to terrible events, saving the compassion for his surrogates or private interactions.

“He’s missing an empathy gene. It’s just not natural to him,” said former George W. Bush White House speechwriter Peter Wehner. “When people who don’t have empathy try to fake it, it doesn’t come across very well.”

But If He’d Voted “Yes”—Hey, No Problem.

From CNN:

Republican Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin said Tuesday that he thinks that Sen. John McCain’s brain tumor and the early morning hours may have affected the Arizona Republican’s no vote on the Senate bill to repeal Obamacare.

McCain voted no on the so-called skinny repeal, explaining in a radio interview last week that he disagreed with the process leading up to the vote and saying he supported repealing Obamacare but with an immediate replacement. McCain returned to the Senate to vote on health care-related legislation after a surgery to remove a blood clot revealed he had brain cancer.

Johnson argued that the brain tumor may have affected McCain’s vote.

“We did get a call from Paul (Ryan) and he assured us that skinny repeal was not going to pass the House it would have to go to conference,” said the Wisconsin senator on AM560 “Chicago’s Morning Answer.”

“Again, I’m not gonna speak for John McCain — he has a brain tumor right now — that vote occurred at 1:30 in the morning, some of that might have factored in,” he continued.

Seemingly shocked, a radio host responded “really?” to Johnson’s comments and asked if he really believed McCain’s brain tumor might have factored into his judgment.

“Again, I-I-I don’t know exactly what — we really thought — and again I don’t want speak for any senator,” Johnson responded. “I really thought he was going to vote yes to send that to conference at 10:30 at night. By about 1, 1:30, he voted no. So you have talk to John in terms what was on his mind.”
