Good Tuesday morning.
Here is what's on the president's agenda today:
- The president receives his intelligence briefing
- President Trump has lunch with the secretary of State
- The president delivers remarks at the Make America Great Again Rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa
Yesterday, President Trump performed a ceremonial swearing-in of the newest member of the Supreme Court. The president apologized to the Kavanaughs for the horrible treatment they were served courtesy of the lunatic left. You can watch Trump speak here.
The president was speaking candidly (is he ever not?) about the nasty confirmation process earlier in the day. At the WH, Trump took another swipe at the process and at Senator Blumenthal: “I’ve never seen anything like it. From the leaks of important documents to the statements they made to watching Blumenthal, who was a fraudster when it came to Vietnam. What he did was horrible."
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also talked about the hostile process, describing the Senate as "under assault."
"I couldn’t be prouder of the Senate Republican Conference. We were standing up for the presumption of innocence in this country. … And secondly, we were literally under assault," McConnell said at a press conference in Kentucky. "These demonstrators, I’m sure some of them were well-meaning citizens. But many of them were obviously trying to get in our faces, to go to our homes. Basically almost attack us in the halls of the capitol.
"There was a full-scale effort to intimidate."
And if you think the operation is over now that Kavanaugh is confirmed, you would be wrong. This is the new normal -- every nomination and candidate will now be subject to salacious allegations, true or not. Every political difference will be mitigated with intimidation and physical confrontation. The left is unable to win on reason, argumentation and process so they will try to win by inflaming passions with hysterical rhetoric. Really, why shouldn't you punch that guy, he's a Nazi? He's a rapist, he's a gang rapist, he's going to over turn Roe v. Wade and on and on and on.
I guess this shouldn't come as a surprise, but a teacher in Minnesota wonders on Twitter who will shoot/kill Kavanaugh now that he is on the court. She was placed on paid leave for her remarks. I bet she's back in the classroom soon. And then there is the Georgetown professor who tweeted out that white, GOP senators deserve miserable deaths; she has been placed on research leave. These folks are educating your kids; they are validating the violent posture of the left.
Rosenstein stays...for now
President Trump finally had that long-awaited meeting with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. This meeting was a HUGE deal until it was overshadowed by the drunk-frat boy-rapist SCOTUS nominee Kavanaugh. The media diverted their attention in the rapey direction and the meeting was postponed. Trump planned on meeting with Rosenstein to talk about Rosenstein's comments that he would wear a wire to help the deep state get Trump 25th amendment-ed.
Can you imagine the phone call or email to Rosenstein: "President Trump wants to meet with you on his airplane"? At least he didn't ask Rosenstein to take a helicopter ride. Alas, Rosenstein will not be fired.
President Donald Trump and deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein held their much-anticipated meeting aboard Air Force One on Monday, White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley told reporters traveling with the president.
Rosenstein accompanied the president to Orlando on Monday, where he addressed the annual convention of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. In his remarks at the convention, Trump thanked Rosenstein for joining him on the trip and said the two had a "very good talk." The president also joked about the intense press coverage his meeting with Rosenstein had garnered.
"The press wants to know, 'what did you talk about?'" Trump said, eliciting laughter from the crowd. "But we had a very good talk, I will say it. That became a very big story, actually folks. But we had a good talk."
The meeting lasted 45 minutes.
Your daily WTF:
Historical picture of the day:
Are you serious? Only an idiot would buy this. Facebook announced a new $200 gadget that would put a camera and microphone in your home
And that's all I've got now go beat back the angry mob!
I keep getting ads for Beto O'Rourke... I'm glad they're wasting their money, though. Perhaps I'll have to contribute to Ted Cruz to show just how effective their advertising really is...
It's a shame nobody got to this Communist thug sooner, before he killed so many innocents.
There seems to be some doubt as to whether or not is real -- can anyone verify?
