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.

Say What?

Homeland Security adviser Tom Bossert today on CNN:

He said the Trump administration was mindful of predictions of future floods, and doesn’t want federal dollars used to rebuild structures that will come under increasing threat from rising sea levels.

“We continue to take seriously climate change — not the cause of it, but the things that we observe,” Bossert said.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In other words, we recognize it’s happening, but we refuse to recognize why.

This is like the cigarette companies acknowledging people got lung cancer after years of smoking but it couldn’t possibly have been because of their product.

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.”

Good Boy, Trumpy!

From Politico:

THE DAILY STORMER, a neo-Nazi publication: “Trump comments were good. He didn’t attack us. He just said the nation should come together. Nothing specific against us. He said that we need to study why people are so angry, and implied that there was hate … on both sides! So he implied the antifa [anti-fascists] are haters. There was virtually no counter-signaling of us at all. He said he loves us all. Also refused to answer a question about White Nationalists supporting him. No condemnation at all. When asked to condemn, he just walked out of the room. Really, really good. God bless him.”
