Phototrolling Trump, Flake Flouts, Fuzzy Math, Connecting Russian Dots
Photo-trolling Trump, Flake flouts tribalism, hurting middle class more than thought, payday lender lawyer, fuzzy math, principled McCain, Kruggers takes aim, and Moyers connects the dots. All this and more in your daily Trump Damage Report for Monday, November 27th, 2017.
- Former Obama photographer trolls Trump with Time magazine covers saying “Someone has a lot of catching up to do”, The Hill reports. Trump is still cranky and lying through his teeth about Time considering him for person of the year. We’re really hoping it’s Robert Mueller.
- Senator Flake says that the GOP backing pedophile Moore over the Democrat “is political tribalism at its worst”, The Hill reports. Flake has helped fueled the tribalism, unfortunately. Even though he’s been at Trump’s heels lately, he is part and parcel to the problem.
- The Trumpist Senate tax bill hurts the poor more than originally thought, the CBO finds, The Washington Post reports. That should make it far more appealing to Republicans. They despise the poor almost as much as they hate women, gays, and black people.
- The White House memo justifying the civil war underway at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau takeover was written by a payday lender attorney, The Intercept reports. If you pay him immediately, there’s no interest. If you don’t, it’s 489% with late fees.
- A Trumpist lawmaker used fuzzy math to make the case for tax cuts, The Washington Post reports. It used to be that Republicans would offer massive tax cuts to the wealthiest ALONG with a minor tax cut to the middle class. The middle class no longer gets that kind of treatment.
- McCain, who infamously named Sarah Palin as his running mate (former title-holder of the stupidest politician in America), says that Trump doesn’t have any “principles and beliefs”, The Hill reports. McCain has them, but they are negotiable. Trump has none.
- Kruggers takes aim at the GOP addiction to financial deregulation in his piece Voodoo Too in The New York Times. The Rape-publicans (thanks Roy Moore) tend to like to blow up the economy occasionally.
- Bill Moyers offers a rough primer on how the Trump-Russia story is coming together. Take a read and see how the dots are connected.
