He assures us he is “the least racist person in the world”

Jul 31st, 2019 10:51 am | By

Trump’s latest contribution to the conversation:

CNN’s Don Lemon, the dumbest man on television, insinuated last night while asking a debate “question” that I was a racist, when in fact I am “the least racist person in the world.” Perhaps someone should explain to Don that he is supposed to be neutral, unbiased & fair,……..or is he too dumb (stupid} to understand that. No wonder CNN’s ratings (MSNBC’s also) have gone down the tubes – and will stay there until they bring credibility back to the newsroom. Don’t hold your breath!

The “dumb (stupid}” is a nice touch, especially the mismatched brackets.

Anyway, no worries, it’s all political correctness run mad.

“Everybody’s called a racist now,” Trump said in

I can think of less-racist-than-Trump people without even resorting to Google.

He does say it. You can see him say it, and then go on to say a bunch of racist crap.

More than 170 code violations in Baltimore

Jul 28th, 2019 12:08 pm | By

Back in November 2017 there were fines.

Jared Kushner’s family real estate company has racked up more than 170 code violations in Baltimore after failing to comply with local laws, officials said Thursday.

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz said local officials had to threaten sanctions to get Kushner Companies to address necessary repairs. The county withheld U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) rental payments at nine of the company’s properties and issued $3,500 in fines.

“We expect all landlords to comply with the code requirements that protect the health and safety of their tenants, even if the landlord’s father-in-law is president of the United States,” Kamenetz said in a statement.

You know…this is really extraordinary. On … Read the rest

Maggots started coming out of the living room carpet

Jul 28th, 2019 11:24 am | By

Also, from way back in May 2017 – ProPublica on Kushnerville, Baltimore:

Tenants in more than a dozen Baltimore-area rental complexes complain about a property owner who they say leaves their homes in disrepair, humiliates late-paying renters and often sues them when they try to move out. Few of them know that their landlord is the president’s son-in-law.

I blogged about it at the time, so if it’s familiar to you that may be why.

The worst troubles may have been those described in a 2013 court case involving Jasmine Cox’s unit at Cove Village. They began with the bedroom ceiling, which started leaking one day. Then maggots started coming out of the living room carpet. Then raw sewage

The garbage piled in the back yard included decomposing rat carcasses

Jul 28th, 2019 11:05 am | By

Speaking of rats, and garbage, and filthy conditions…it turns out Prince Jared is a slum landlord who turns a blind eye to such conditions for his tenants.

The refuse piled in the back yard of 118 East 4th Street was “Dickensian,” says longtime tenant Jennifer Hengen. It filled the sunken yard at least five steps high, and included “decomposing rat carcasses.” The building also went without gas for almost five months. Tenants got service turned back on in early March after they filed an “HP action” lawsuit in Housing Court demanding repairs from their landlord, Jared Kushner, and then filed a motion to hold him in contempt after his representatives didn’t show up for the first hearing.

That was 2016, … Read the rest

Some choice words

Jul 28th, 2019 10:42 am | By

The Baltimore Sun editorial board:

In case anyone missed it, the president of the United States had some choice words to describe Maryland’s 7th congressional district on Saturday morning. Here are the key phrases: “no human being would want to live there,” it is a “very dangerous & filthy place,” “Worst in the USA” and, our personal favorite: It is a “rat and rodent infested mess.” He wasn’t really speaking of the 7th as a whole. He failed to mention Ellicott City, for example, or Baldwin or Monkton or Prettyboy, all of which are contained in the sprawling yet oddly-shaped district that runs from western Howard County to southern Harford County. No, Donald Trump’s wrath was directed at Baltimore

This is a good photo. It’s reminiscent of the yelling at the kid mowing the lawn one.

Now what’s this about the seal?

Speaking on Tuesday at a student activist conference hosted by the conservative advocacy organization Turning Point USA, President Donald Trump walked onstage in front of a presidential seal that, upon closer examination, appears to have been altered to include symbols representing Russia and golf.

For one thing the eagle has two heads, which the more usual seal does not. Also it’s holding a bunch of golf clubs instead of arrows.

Additionally, instead of “e pluribus

That nobody has ever seen before

Jul 23rd, 2019 5:56 pm | By

Trump gave a speech today. He gave a speech to young people. He told them he has absolute power.

President Donald Trump was candid about the unlimited power he believes he has during a speech at the Turning Point USA Teen Student Action Summit on Tuesday.

After reasserting that investigations into Russia’s election meddling found “no collusion,” Trump claimed, “Then I have an Article II, where I have the right to do whatever I want as President.”

He’s been saying variations on that all along. This is not the first time that childish “whatever I want” has come out of his corrupted mouth. I’ve posted about it before.

In recent months, the president has ramped up his rhetoric on

Not very smart

Trump as adult and reasonable as ever.

Six hours ago, ranting and raving about the Federal Reserve, followed by ranting and raving about the Washington Post, which brought him to the scary media in general.

Where exactly would Donald Trump be without the media? Nowhere. He’d be a Queens landlord.

Who is weak and insecure?

Jul 21st, 2019 11:16 am | By

On it goes.

President Donald Trump on Sunday again ripped into four Democratic congresswomen of color who’ve been the target of his sustained attacks, calling them “weak” and “insecure” minutes after blasting a Washington Post story on the fallout over his initial comments about the members a week earlier.

“I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country,” Trump tweeted. “They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!”

The Washington Post reported Saturday that Trump’s own top aides did not think he fully understood what he had done in

Trump took time out from his busy schedule of yawning in the face of human rights advocates and begging the Swedish PM to let his famous friend’s famous friend out of jail without trial to invent new lies about Those Women.

After spending much of the week defending his racist assertion that four Democratic congresswomen of color should “go back” to the countries “from which they came,” President Donald Trump on Friday falsely stated that they had used the anti-Semitic slur “evil Jews” and have “call[ed] the people of our country and our country ‘garbage.’ ”

None of the congresswomen in question—Reps. Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Rashida Tlaib—have ever been reported to say either of those

This happened today.

It’s disgusting to watch. He turns his back on her, he slumps there looking bored and stupid, he asks her where her family are now when she just told him Isis killed them all. Then he gets perky when he asks her about the fucking Nobel Prize.

More on Nadia Murad:

Although Murad, 26, gave the president a very terse explanation of her activism, Murad did not convey the horrors or bravery of the journey that earned her the prestigious award: After ISIS kidnapped her and 6,500 Yazidi women

Watch for the nod

Jul 19th, 2019 5:58 am | By

Trump is pretending to disavow the “Send her back!” chanting at his Nürnberg rally Wednesday, and the media are helping him, but the disavowal is absurd. He stood there smirking while the MAGA hats chanted.

Trump attempted to distance himself from the racist chant on Thursday, saying “I wasn’t happy with that message that they gave last night.”

“It was quite a chant, and I felt a little bit badly about it. But I will say this, I did — and I started speaking very quickly. But it started up rather fast,” the president added.

However, as NPR’s Tamara Keith noted, “in reality, Trump stood there for 13 seconds as the chant continued, waiting for it to die down

Condemnations waste their sweetness on the desert air

Jul 18th, 2019 9:33 am | By

Condemnation was swift. Too bad it won’t stop him.

Democrats rushed to condemn Donald Trump after his supporters erupted into chants of “send her back” at the mention of Minnesota congresswoman Ilhan Omar, one of the targets of the president’s recent racist tweets.

The Vermont senator Bernie Sanders was one of the first to offer his support to Omar following the chants at the Trump rally in North Carolina on Wednesday night, accusing the president of “stoking the most despicable and disturbing currents in our society” and called him the “most dangerous president in the history of our country”.

Dangerous and destructive. This shit he’s stoking isn’t going to go away even if he vanishes in a puff … Read the rest

The scene drew reactions of shock and horror

Jul 18th, 2019 9:09 am | By

So we’re going for the full Nuremberg now. We knew he was planning to, but it still comes as a shock to see how far he will go.

Goaded on by the president, a crowd at a Donald Trump rally on Wednesday night chanted “send her back! send her back!” in reference to Ilhan Omar, a US congresswoman who arrived almost 30 years ago as a child refugee in the United States.

Trump used the 2020 campaign rally in Greenville, North Carolina, to attack Omar and three other Democratic congresswomen – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan – calling them “hate-filled extremists”.

Which is deeply ironic given how accurately that describes … Read the rest
