Looking a Little Puffy There Today Kirstjen. Maybe You Shouldn’t Have Eaten at That Mexican Restaurant Last Night.

From Boston.com: 

“The brusque 46-year-old former Bush administration official this week became known as the Cabinet member who skewed the facts at a combative press conference in defense of President Donald Trump’s “zero-tolerance” policy, and who convened a “working dinner” at a Mexican restaurant while audio of hysterical Spanish-speaking children circulated on social media.”

Pence: “Get over it. I lost mine two years ago.”

The Difference Is, Mr. Grimm, Those Mothers Come Back

From The Hill:

Republican congressional candidate Michael Grimm said Tuesday that the widely circulated audio tapes of migrant kids crying after being separated from their families is the “exact same” as the sounds one would hear at a daycare.

“I think it’s extremely unfortunate. But what people are forgetting — they just want to listen to those tapes — I can take you to any nursery and you’re going to hear the same exact things as a mother leaves to go to work and has to leave her child at daycare. You’re going to hear those same exact things,” Michael Grimm, who is running in New York’s 11th Congressional District, said to NY1.

Well, Yeah, Because They Don’t Allow Guns There.

From The Hill:

Gun-related injuries and deaths drop significantly during the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) annual conference, according to a new analysis published by the The New England Journal of Medicine.

What they found is that gun-related injuries decreased by an average of 63 percent in the states where conventions were being held, and a 20 percent reduction in gun-related injuries nationally during the conventions.

“These findings are consistent with reductions in firearm injuries occurring as a result of lower rates of firearm use during the brief period when many firearm owners and owners of places where firearms are used may be attending an NRA convention.”

Cadet “Bonespurs” Opines About Courage

“When it came time to get in there and do something, he didn’t have the courage or something happened, but he certainly did a poor job. There’s no question about that,” Trump said of Scot Peterson on the White House South Lawn before leaving to speak at CPAC.
But that’s a case where somebody was outside, they’re trained, they didn’t react properly under pressure or they were a coward,” Trump added. “It was a real shot to the police department.”

Yes, We Should Be Worried About Assault With a Deadly Condom.

From The Hill:

Florida lawmakers on Tuesday passed a resolution declaring pornography a public health risk, less than an hour after they rejected a motion to consider a bill that would ban assault rifles.

The Florida House of Representatives opened its Tuesday session with a motion to debate a bill banning assault rifles, which it rejected by a 36-71 vote within three minutes, according to the Washington Post.

In the same session, less than an hour later, according to the newspaper, the legislature considered a GOP-backed bill to declare porn a public health risk, which it passed by a voice vote.

During the debate, State Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith (D) questioned State Rep. Ross Spano, the GOP lawmaker who presented the pornography bill, asking if pornography has killed anyone or caused first responders to seek counseling for post-traumatic stress disorder.

“[Spano] was saying porn as a health risk was more important to address here in the Florida Legislature than the epidemic of gun violence,” Smith told the AP. “These are their priorities. I don’t understand the politics, to be honest, if I’m being honest. I’m not aware there’s a base of voters who are losing sleep every night over the epidemic of pornography as a public health crisis.”
