20 days after the National Day of Patriotic Devotion

(late edition)

Ahhh, ethics schmethics:

“Go buy Ivanka’s stuff is what I would tell you,” Conway [said]. “I hate shopping but I’m gonna go get some myself today. It’s a wonderful line, I own some of it…I’m just going to give a free commercial here: Go buy it today, everybody. You can find it online.” Buzzfeed, 9 February 2017

You say Orlando, I say Atlanta:

“President Donald Trump’s press secretary says he meant to say Orlando when he repeatedly referenced a terror attack in Atlanta during interviews and a press briefing last week. Sean Spicer first referred to an Atlanta attack in an interview on Jan. 29 on ABC’s “This Week.” He also named the city in reference to a terror attack during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Jan. 30 and in a press briefing later that same day.” ABC News, 9 February 2017

Can I put you on hold for a moment? Thank you …

“In his first call as president with Russian leader Vladimir Putin … When Putin raised the possibility of extending the 2010 treaty, known as New START, Trump paused to ask his aides in an aside what the treaty was, these sources said. Trump then told Putin the treaty was one of several bad deals negotiated by the Obama administration, saying that New START favored Russia.” Reuters, 9 February 2017

While we’ve got Putin on hold, why don’t we talk about this anymore?

“According to the consensus assessment of US intelligence agencies, Russian intelligence, under the orders of Vladimir Putin, mounted an extensive operation to influence the 2016 campaign to benefit Donald Trump … the key twin questions — what is Trump doing regarding the Russian hacking, and are Trump associates being investigated for interactions with Russia? — have not been regular items on the agenda during the White House briefings.” Mother Jones, 9 February 2017

It’s been almost three weeks now, but he’s still using that line, “there’s a new sheriff in town”:

“Declaring that a “a new era of justice begins,” President Donald Trump signed three executive orders on Thursday that he said were intended to reduce crime. Trump told reporters one of the orders would create a task force on reducing violent crime and that another would instruct the Department of Justice to implement a plan to stop crime against law enforcement officers.” The Baltimore Sun, 9 February 2017

And so, we finish with the guy with 5 deferments pissing on a combat veteran again:

“President Trump lashed out at Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Thursday, saying that the senator’s negative assessment of a deadly raid in Yemen last month “emboldens the enemy!” The Washington Post, 9 February 2017
