As the White House colludes with Devin Nunes to shut down the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of the Trump/Russia connections, Sean Spicer is having to answer questions. In his typically inane manner, Spicer tried diversionary humor. “If the president puts Russian salad dressing on his salad tonight, somehow that’s a Russian connection.” No doubt wicked funny, but I doubt the press will restrain their pursuit of the truth.
And when was the last time Trump ate a salad? (h/t The Hill)
I’m not saying that there is any there, there – but the ‘there’s nothing here’ language coming out of the White House reminds me of something – I trying to think what. And every time I try to type ‘Trump/Russia’ it autocorrects to ‘Watergate’.
Republicans call themselves ‘pro-life’. Diseases kill the vast majority of Americans. NIH research leads to cures for disease. Republicans want to cut the National Institutes of Health Budget by $1.23 billion this year alone. How is that pro-life? Full story at: Bloomberg Politics.

It’s very simple, if you feel the need to make remarks about appearance – don’t. It shows a limited intelligence and cheapens your argument. Unfortunately, the pasty-complected, po-faced, balding lurch, Bill O’Reilly has little use for that constraint.
On Fox’s ‘Fox & Friend’ he listened to Rep Maxine Waters say, “We have suffered discrimination. We have suffered isolation, undermining. … But we stand up for America, oftentimes when others who think they’re more patriotic — who say they’re more patriotic — do not.” O’Reilly replied to this with, “I didn’t hear a word she said. I was looking at the James Brown wig”. Because …. I don’t why. But the easily amused chuckleheads at F & F yucked it up.
While considerate and empathetic people realize that O’Reilly’s remarks are the product of a deficient mind, Fox News just calls it marketing. (h/t Yahoo News)
