President Struggles To Reach Supporters

In a private meeting with a group of bloggers today, a White House staffer revealed that the Obama Administration is having difficulties reaching their supporters. "We are not concerned that they no longer stand behind us, as these are very loyal people" he said, yet attempts to reach them had revealed that many of them "are no longer able to pay their phone bills or afford internet service". He said that approximately 65% of their email list was no longer able to access the internet, and nearly 40% of their call list was "temporarily not in service due to non payment". He said that the President was "aware but not overly concerned" with this development.

According to one White House aid, the President had put together a crew to reach out to these supporters with communications they could still afford to receive, even if his policies continue to turn the economy for the worse. Some of the ideas they are considering include handing out flyers in unemployment lines, stapling brochures to park benches, and purchasing ad space on place-mats at soup kitchens. "Our supporters are out there", he said. "We just have to find a way of reaching them".


Hot off the press.

    Watered Down Travel Ban

    I have some friends and family who supported President Trump from early on in the process. From time to time they will ask me when I will admit that I was wrong about him. "If Trump does x... If Trump gets y... If Trump supports a policy that results in z... will you admit that you were wrong?" My answer is always "no", because I wasn't wrong. To be clear, I could be wrong in practical application, but that isn't what an election is about. Elections are about theory and speculation and, generally speaking about judging records. Trump had no record to speak of, and his history of stances on issues was all over the map. I opposed his candidacy for several major reasons, all of which are proven valid in this single issue we now refer to as the "travel ban". Here were my reasons.

    Fraudulent Rant by Judge Jeanine

    If you're not familiar with Justice with Judge Jeanine, it is a show on the FOX News Network starring Jeanine Pirro. She is known for her over-the-top rants where she serves up gobs of fresh red meat for her largely hard right wing audience. While it's not unusual for her to be a little fast and loose with the facts, she has been known to occasionally return from the break with a correction from her producers. Last night, however, there was no such correction to an outright lie she told on the show, and the matter being discussed should have (at the very least) contained a disclaimer from the host. I would cut her some slack, but as a former prosecutor and judge, she should be well aware of what proper protocol should have been here.

    Wake The Hell Up, GOP!

    It's not cute anymore, Republicans. The President of the United States is completely detached from reality, and you can't fix that. You can't cover it up, you can't explain it away, and let me make this as clear as I possibly can for you. You cannot possibly undo the damage you are doing to the party brand by trying to pretend this man is anything other than completely unhinged. I'm watching Sean Hannity borrow guests from the Alex Jones show in an attempt to bolster Trump's conspiratorial claims. I'm seeing relatively mainstream conservatives make themselves look like the crazed fringes of the paranoid right wing. Don't believe me? Look at this.
