Gosh, where is Melania's outrage, as her husband harms American children?

From today's NY Times:

Hundreds Of Thousands Are Losing Access To Food Stamps

The article quotes a figure from the Agriculture Department, which estimates 1 million CHILDREN would lose automatic eligibility for free or reduced fee school lunch.

Nice.

Why is Melania silent?

She cares so, so, much about children, doesn't she?

What about those so-called pro-life Trumpsters?

They should be outraged!

True Conservative, Jennifer Rubin, has written a spot-on opinion piece in today's WaPo:

Don't 'Mess' With Nancy Pelosi

Speaker Pelosi also has some great merch for sale, which benefits her reelection campaign.

The "hate" rhetoric is simply more projection from the cult.  The right wing propaganda instructs the gullible that the Liberals hate Trump, hate faith, hate fiscal or personal responsibility, and even hate them. This allows than to hate without guilt because they are hating in self defense. 

This level of indoctrination is pervasive and dangerous.  A clue to the pervasiveness is that the reporter actually used the word hate in that question when there is ZERO evidence to support that notion. He interjected partisan propaganda into the press briefing as easily as republicans add Russian propaganda to congressional hearings.

Don’t ‘mess’ with Nancy Pelosi

...   Asked whether impeachment might hurt some of her members, she replied sternly, "This has absolutely nothing to do with politics. It isn’t about politics. It’s not about partisanship, Democrats, Republicans. . . . It’s about the Constitution of the United States.”

She emphasized that it is the president’s actions that leave Congress “no choice.” If the House were to do nothing, she explained, it would signal to future presidents, “You can do whatever you want.”...

...   It was the coda to the main part of her Q&A that went viral. James Rosen, a reporter for the right-wing and Trump-loving Sinclair Broadcast Group, asked whether Pelosi hated the president. She turned sharply to confront Rosen. “I don’t hate anybody,” she said. “Not anybody in the world. Don’t you accuse me of . . .” Rosen pleaded that he was simply repeating the accusation of Rep. Douglas A. Collins (R-Ga.), one of Trump’s more hysterical defenders. At that point, she went back to the podium. What she said next, in a fierce but deliberate fashion, was something to behold:

Quote

I think the president is a coward when it comes to helping our kids, who are afraid of gun violence. I think he is cruel when he doesn’t deal with helping our “dreamers,” of whom we are very proud. I think he is in denial about the Constitution — about the climate crisis. However, that’s about the election. Take it up in the election.

This [impeachment] is about the Constitution of the United States and the facts that lead to the president’s violation of his oath of office.

And as a Catholic, I resent your using the word hate in a sentence that addresses me. I don’t hate anyone. . . . I pray for the president all the time. So, don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that.

Again, irresponsible reporters use the language of propagandists to excite specific and targeted emotions within specific groups.  That's all that was...the furthering of lies, propaganda and emotional thinking in response to matters of immense importance to the very fabric of this nation, for ratings within Trumplandia. If only that fellow had been as interested in facts as he was in feelings.

I think someone should ask the Sinclair Broadcasting reporter if he loves hysterical White men.

After all, that is what Representative Collins is; hysterical White man spouting hyperbole.

Speaker Pelosi is brilliant.

Trump Has Now Shifted $1.7 Million From Campaign Donors To His Private Business

The Trump campaign is spending big money at the president’s properties, according to a review of Federal Election Commission data. Yet the records show that Donald Trump still has not donated any of his own funds to the campaign. That means America’s billionaire-in-chief has shifted $1.7 million from campaign donors into his private business...

...   The biggest beneficiary has been Trump Tower Commercial LLC, which controls the president’s famous Manhattan skyscraper. Trump still owns the entity, which has accepted $1.2 million in rent from the reelection effort and another $225,000 from the Republican National Committee. Since Trump became president, an estimated 1.6% of the tower’s revenue has come from either the RNC or the reelection campaign....

Right-wing darling and Trump apologist Nikki Haley, continues to audition for a role in his organization.

With dog whistles like these, Trump is sure to hire her!

From today's WaPo:

Nikki Haley: Mass Murder Dylann Roof 'hijacked' Meaning Of Confederate Flag

According to Haley, the flag stood for: " service,sacrifice and heritage."

She also blamed the media, for trying to define Roof's crime as racism.

Sure, Nikki.

Most people understand it was White Supremacist, Dylann Roof, who killed nine Black people, who defined the incident as racist; not the media.

Is Haley tripping on acid too?

If not, add her to the list of Republicans lacking morals, ethics and any sense of basic integrity.
