Schadenfreude: Part 44

More than 700 jobs that President Trump claimed to have “saved” at a Carrier air conditioner plant in Indiana are going to Mexico — and layoffs at the plant begin next month.

    There's (sic) also going to be layoffs of roughly 200 workers at a Boeing plant in South Carolina visited by Trump in February, the Post & Courier reported Thursday.

Even the help are multimillionaires.


Kellyanne Conway, who became the first female campaign manager to successfully elect a president, is, not surprisingly, a successful woman herself.
Even before being named counselor to the president, Conway was worth as much as $40 million, derived mostly from her investments and her salary at her personal political consulting firm, "the polling company/WomanTrend."
Conway earned, through her company, slightly more than $800,000 in business income for her work in 2016. The business is worth between $1 million and $5 million, according to her disclosure statement.
Most of Conway's assets, more than $31 million, are held in cash or money-market accounts — likely because she had to sell most of her investments before taking a job in the White House. She does still own stock in drug giant Pfizer, snack food companies Kraft Heinz and Mondelez, and tobacco companies Altria and Philip Morris. Those stock holdings are relatively minor — less than $200,000 — compared with her net worth.

Ode On An American Cabinet

They knew their boss was vulgar and crass:
A fatuous clown without any class.
Little did they know,
He'd put on a show,
Where each one must publicly kiss his ass.

Wanna bet the suggested 'solution' will be more guns?

I am shocked, simply shocked!


Just sayin'

On April 25, 2013, Scalise made a floor speech where he used the Sandy Hook massacre of children to support the rights of gun owners. "I think they counted over 40 different laws that were broken by the Sandy Hook murderer," Scalise said. "Then somebody is going to tell you that one more law, which makes it harder for law-abiding citizens to get a gun, would have stopped him from doing that." The congressman doesn't mention that a law banning assault weapons would have actually slowed down Adam Lanza. And we're not even allowed to discuss banning handguns anymore, which would have done a great deal to stop the bloodshed.
Jefferson Beauregard Sessions the third,
Claimed contact with Russians never occurred.
Just self injury?
Or more perjury?
Into the Trump punch bowl*yet one more turd.
