Sarah Huckabee Sanders just launched a delusional attack on James Comey from her official government account

Published

on

On Monday, former FBI director James Comey finally lost his patience with House Republicans, who had hauled him in for closed-door testimony in a partisan stunt last week. “So another day of Hillary Clinton emails and the Steele Dossier,” Comey complained to reporters. “This while the President of the United States is lying about the FBI, attacking the FBI and attacking the rule of law in this country. How does that make any sense at all?”

This comment evidently did not sit well with White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who took to Twitter to attack Comey with a Gish Gallop of nonsense:

There are a lot of things to unpack there, from the fact that Comey’s “fake Hillary Clinton investigation” is probably the reason Sanders has a job at the White House, to the fact that there is no evidence Comey ever leaked classified information, to the fact that the idea Comey’s investigators abused the FISA process to go after the Trump campaign has been repeatedly debunked. This is an absolutely insane thing to tweet from an official government account.

President Donald Trump fired Comey in May 2017. Reportedly, he demanding “loyalty” from him prior to doing so, and subsequently boasted to Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak that firing that “nut job” took “pressure” off him regarding his ties to Russia. These actions, far from exposing Comey as a “fraud,” raised questions about whether the president was committing obstruction of justice, and prompted the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller to take over the Russia investigation.

But far from realizing the legal risks of going after the former FBI director, Trump has gone scorched earth. He has called Comey a “untruthful slimeball,” said that “Leakin’ James Comey” must have “set a record” for lying, and even asked his Justice Department to appoint a second special counsel to prosecute Comey.

It is not surprising that Sanders would follow the lead of her boss. But Trump and his whole administration could live to regret letting Comey live rent-free inside their heads.

Trump supporters lose their minds when church shows Nativity scene in immigrant cages

Published

MAGA supporters are losing their minds after a photo of the Nativity scene at Claremont United Methodist Church was posted to Facebook.

The scene depicts Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus separated and put in their own cages, a reference to the families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border. Inside the church, the family is shown as reunited.

Senior minister Karen Clark Ristine shared the image on Facebook with the message hoping that everyone in the United States could see the photo and read the story for Christmas.

"The theological statement posted with the nativity: In a time in our country when refugee families seek asylum at our borders and are unwillingly separated from one another, we consider the most well-known refugee family in the world," she wrote. "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, the Holy Family. Shortly after the birth of Jesus, Joseph and Mary were forced to flee with their young son from Nazareth to Egypt to escape King Herod, a tyrant. They feared persecution and death."

Columnist nails Republicans for only caring about Hunter Biden now that his father is running for president

Published

on

One of the critical questions that must be answered by Republicans, according to one Washington Post columnist, is why they didn't care about Hunter Biden's position at Burisma for so many years.

In a Sunday piece, James Downie asked why Republicans didn't do anything about Hunter Biden five years ago when it was first revealed that vice president's son was on the board of a Ukraine energy company. The House and the Senate were being run by Republicans until this year. They haven't had problems with other partisan investigations against high-profile leaders. There were ten investigations into the Benghazi attacks, three hearings, 29 witnesses, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified for 11 hours. Yet, it was only after Joe Biden announced he was running against President Donald Trump that Republicans discovered an issue.
