As Bill Maher said "Trump laid a wreath at the tomb of the Unknown First Wife"
Meanwhile Ignoramus celebrates International Women's Day in true Trumpian oaf style
What an unmitigated clown
Apparently Trump thought he was getting Roger Ailes but instead got Roger Ailes lackey.Shine was Trump's 6th Communications director, but Trump blamed him for the poor Job Approval numbers. Clearly, The Donald feels his message is not getting through.
Shine, of course, was another Fox Executive accused of sexual abuse of women at the station.Apparently Trump thought he was getting Roger Ailes but instead got Roger Ailes lackey.
You could see how it could happen. After all this is the man who complained when the White House Lawyer wouldn't do his dirty work "Where's my Roy Cohn?".
Junior Trump, of course, loves it. Obviously, a bid for the votes of all women who like to do what they are told.Carlson, who was hired by Fox News in 2009, also used sexist language [on tape] to talk about women, including then-co-workers at NBC and public figures. He referred to Martha Stewart’s daughter Alexis Stewart as “****y,” called journalist Arianna Huffington a “pig,” and labeled Britney Spears and Paris Hilton “the biggest white whores in America.” He also said that women enjoy being told to “be quiet and kind of do what you’re told” and that they are “extremely primitive.”
Of course he's lying about the timing of such POVs and more notably with whom he did:Shine, of course, was another Fox Executive accused of sexual abuse of women at the station.
The White House seems to be a refuge for former Fox execs trailing misogyny, Tucker Carlson may be the next.

Trump Jr. defends Tucker Carlson: 'This is how to handle the outrage mob'
Apparently, Carlson wants women to come on his show and explain to him why they think he is wrong.

Tucker Carlson Also Defended Statutory Rape in 2015Tucker Carlson, the 49-year-old Fox News primetime star, does not believe in treating women like men. In particular, as he told the founder of a designated hate group, he does not believe adult women who have sex with underage boys should be considered rapists.
“Here’s what I’m for,” Carlson told Gavin McInnes, founder of the Proud Boys, in a 2015 podcast interview (the video of that chat was uploaded in Jan. 2017). “I’m for treating women differently from the way we treat men. I’m not for playing along at all.”
It gets worse.Of course he's lying about the timing of such POVs and more notably with whom he did:
Tucker Carlson Also Defended Statutory Rape in 2015
"Tucker" reminds me of 'Spaulding Smails' from Caddyshack as a real life caricature cocktail of the worst stereotypes of a manor-born gated community WASP.
The only thing less cool than Spaulding is if you actually watch and enjoy his show but pathetically enough FOXians do so. What can't be laughed at Tucker's expense like Spaulding is that he trades profitably in nativist white supremacy including its violent subsets and looks upon women like Islamists do.
There's a vacancy after Bill Shine (Roger Ailes' 'fixer') left the Communications Director gig.It gets worse.
Some of Carlson's comments broadcast bigotry & racism ("Iraq is full of ... primitive monkeys") , as well as misogyny. Apparently, Media Matters are drip-feeding the audio tapes.
More Of Carlson's Vile 'Naughtiness' Revealed On Tape
Incidentally, Carlson's use of the c-word in relation to a woman is being excused as "a joke" by right wing pundits .... the same ones who piled on Samantha Bee for using the same word in relation to Ivanka Trump. Bee apologized, Carlson has no intention of doing so.
Should Carlson be ejected by Fox (apparently, advertisers are not happy), a job in Trump's White House seems appropriate.
Not only that, it is the final betrayal by Trump of the people who elected him - the white working class. He has no intention of providing any social safety net to his followers, or infrastructure investment, or better Healthcare.https://edition.cnn.com/2019/03/12/politics/gop-deficit-hawks-dying-breed/index.html
Under Trump's plan, the national debt is expected to increase by 40% over the next 10 years, from $22 trillion to $31 trillion.
Anyone know what happened Trumps election pledge to eliminate deficit and the debt?
Barbie Trump (Ivanka) went further and said Daddy's big tax gift to the already wealthy would eliminate the entire national debt
Give big tax breaks to the rich and then cut spending on vets, farmers, students, seniors, and the poor. What’s not to like?
The US in 'Trump Country' is now in Second and even Third World status in many parts.Not only that, it is the final betrayal by Trump of the people who elected him - the white working class. He has no intention of providing any social safety net to his followers, or infrastructure investment, or better Healthcare.
Trump's capitulation to the agenda of the Republican donor elite (who think only they deserve public money) reverses his 2016 promises to provide "great Healthcare", "infrastructure investment" and "defend Medicare".
The poor saps he conned may not even realise it, as he bamboozles them with a wall to nowhere.
Trump's budget cuts spending on vets, farmers, students, seniors, and the poor
An MIT economist says the US has regressed to a developing nation statusThe economist describes a two-track economy with on the one hand 20 per cent of the population that is educated and enjoys good jobs and supportive social networks. On the other hand, the remaining 80 per cent, he said, are part of the US’ low-wage sector, where the world of possibility has shrunk and people are burdened with debts and anxious about job security.
. . . much of the low-wage sector had little influence over public policy, the high-income sector was keeping wages down to provide cheap labour, social control was used to prevent subsistence workers from challenging existing policies and social mobility was low. Mr Temin also claims that this dual-economy has a “racist” undertone. . . . “Without a robust middle class, America is not only reverting to developing-country status, it is increasingly ripe for serious social turmoil that has not been seen in generations.”
Donald Trump & White Working Class Dysfunction: Real Opportunity Needed, Not Trump | National ReviewIt wasn’t Beijing. It wasn’t even Washington, as bad as Washington can be. It wasn’t immigrants from Mexico . . .
Nothing happened to them. There wasn’t some awful disaster. There wasn’t a war or a famine or a plague or a foreign occupation. Even the economic changes of the past few decades do very little to explain the dysfunction and negligence — and the incomprehensible malice — of poor white America.
. . .
The white American underclass is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles. Donald Trump’s speeches make them feel good. So does OxyContin. What they need isn’t analgesics, literal or political. They need real opportunity . . .
TBH, I think Nancy Pelosi has called a halt to Impeachment speculation for the moment, so Trump can rant and rave all he likes.Trump up early and tweeting like a madman, however I find this tweet very interesting
How do you impeach a man who is considered by many to be the President with the most successful first two years in history, especially when he has done nothing wrong and impeachment is for “high crimes and misdemeanors”?
This is Trump putting his hand up and accepting bad sh*t is coming his way, but that bad sh*t may fall short of "high crimes and misdemeanours"
So he is priming people to forgive and largely disregard a myriad of bad shit as a worthwhile price to pay for "a man who is considered by many to be the President with the most successful first two years in history"
Classic scam artist tactic
"Oh you have probably seen that i had previously been involved in some publicised incidents of fraud and illegality.
These claims have been greatly exaggerated and are being used to distract people from the current brilliant job I am doing and dissuade people from investing in my brilliant product that will make them immensely wealthy"
In a country like America that should surprise no one as the people are so diverse. Are you so pathetic enough to try and claim it as some sort of victory when anyone with a tiny bit of common sense would realise that statistically the odds are against two white men meeting in the Oval Office on St Patrick Day ?2007 is the last time this occasion saw two white guys meeting in the Oval Office.
Not so - there have been 44 Presidents of the USA, all of them white except 1. There have been 17 Taoiseaigh, all them white, except 1.In a country like America that should surprise no one as the people are so diverse. Are you so pathetic enough to try and claim it as some sort of victory when anyone with a tiny bit of common sense would realise that statistically the odds are against two white men meeting in the Oval Office on St Patrick Day ?
