Nunes’s Medal of Freedom Renders the Award Meaningless

Trump Destroys An American Honor

Neither honor nor tradition has ever meant squat to Donald Trump. Now, in his childish, petty quest to burn things down on his way out, he’s decided to trash the Medal of Freedom. That medal, according to White House.gov is (my emphasis):

…the Nation’s highest civilian honor. It is awarded by the President of the United States to individuals who have made exceptional contributions to the security or national interests of America, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.

It’s reported that Trump will hand one to Jim Jordan, too. These choices are an insult to the integrity of the award, and a slap in the face to the people who were worthy of it.

It’s true that Nunes and Jordan have made “exceptional contributions” to Trump’s private endeavors, but that’s the polar opposite of America’s national interests as it relates to this medal and these jokers.

Donald Trump is so proud of his choice of Nunes, he awarded the medal to him in private Monday. Here’s the ridiculous testimonial:

Lindsey Graham Dangled Stimulus to Buy Votes

Winning is all that matters

Many writers have called out Lindsey Graham‘s post-McCain descent into the gutter, but it turns out he can go even lower. As Americans struggle to stay above water and small business owners lose their livelihoods, Graham is dangling stimulus money like pet treats to buy the Georgia Senate seats. Via The Hill:

lindsey grahamWhile he frequently antagonized Trump during the 2016 Republican primary, he has since become a loyal lap-dog for the outgoing president. In a surprise development, though, Graham does not necessarily agree with Trump on stimulus checks. He says that he will support the president’s hope for a larger check, but only if David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler win their senate runoff races.

Update: As I write this, Graham has voiced support for a stand-alone vote to raise stimulus to $2000.00, wonder how he’s being rewarded for that.

Roger Stone Won’t Be Dressing as an Inmate… Yet

 

Stone Cold Nuts

There’s never been a shortage of crackpots or clowns in Donald Trump’s orbit.

jones pierson“Spokesperson” Katrina Pierson and her YUGE bullet necklace, Alex Jones‘ ridiculous conspiracy theories, and Jerry Falwell Jr. packing heat in case AOC comes for his cows. Crazy just oozes from the Right Wing. Then there’s Roger Stone.

The name Roger Stone was probably unknown to most people before he landed in Robert Mueller’s crosshairs. A long-time Republican operative, Roger Stone’s been called everything from a “Practitioner of political dark arts” to “Washington’s Sleaziest Political Operator “. My personal favorite though is Charles Pierce‘s description:

“Roger Stone is the most elegant maître d’ the American political sewer ever has had.”

Stone more hat than cattle

While Stone fancies himself a major political player, Slate’s Jacob Weisberg suggests he might be more hat than cattle:

It became clear to me … that Stone was less power player than con artist. He cultivated a reputation for being a bad boy, playing dirty tricks and crossing ethical lines. In practice, so far as I could tell, he was mostly shaking down his clients, who paid him a lot of money based on the largely false impression that he had real influence. He was a bluffer, implying he advised people he didn’t, and a leaker, ratting out his allies in pursuit of his own agenda.

Trump once called him “a stone-cold loser,” who “always takes credit for things he never did.”

Stone “Style”

Roger Stone is also known for his flamboyant “style”, as Scott Christian wrote in a 2017 Esquire piece

Stone fancies himself something of a dandy, serving as men’s fashion editor for the conservative political website The Daily Caller (yes, you read that right) and running a fashion blog called Stone on Style.
… Your source for sartorial tips, courtesy of a man who dressed for Trump’s inauguration in an outfit stolen from a cartoon villain who ties his victims to train tracks.

Matt Labash of The Weekly Standard described Stone this way:

… a dandy by disposition who boasts of having not bought off-the-rack since he was 17–he’s now 56…

Not buying “off the rack” is an understatement. Stone’s “style” is more like a patient with multiple personality disorder burglarizing a costume shop.

He has dressed as:

Roger Stone costumes

and this character, which frankly had me stymied for a bit; I just couldn’t place the face:

Roger Stone characters

And then it hit me …

EDITH HEAD!

He’s channeling Edith Head!

Stone’s so-called “style” has been a source of personal amusement over the years.

Roger Stone's "style"

The idea of him living in the same drab stripes as his fellow “political sewer dwellers” some day, well there’s no better word for it than KARMA.

Mike Huckabee: Like Son Like Father

I guess we now understand how Mike Huckabee’s son became a dog torturer. In an interview on “Fox and Friends”, Huckabee laughed as he defended the Guy-Currently-Residing-in-the-White-House for questioning a 7-year-old girl’s belief in Santa Clause:

“What is wrong with people? It wasn’t like he was boiling the little girl’s bunny rabbit in a pot on the stove or something.”

Boy, this guy cracks himself up. Really, of all the analogies…
No wonder his kid grew up with psychopathic tendencies. By the way, Mike’s “joke” is a reference to a scene in the movie “Fatal Attraction“, a movie one would not envision a “Pastor” curling up on the couch with a bowl of popcorn to watch.

WTF goes on in this twisted family?
