“The Nazis enforced their laws as well. You don’t separate children from their families! Ever! You’d have to kill me to take my child from me simply because I was trying to get them to a better place for a better tomorrow. I am glad to be on the right side of history.”
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo – shaming the “family values” wing of the GOP.
Note that Red approves of playing the Nazi card whenever appropriate and when dealing with the administration of Trumph – the Insult Comic President – it is unfortunately all too often appropriate.
“I don’t think most Americans, in their heart, want to be given something. I’ve spent a lot of time traveling around this country over the last four years. People want to work for what they get. So, I think that this idea of a guaranteed minimum is not something most people want. They want the ability to be able to secure a job. They want the ability to live in a country where’s there’s the potential for upward mobility.”
Ivanka Trump commenting on the Green New Deal.
Is it possible that this smug, self-entitled, trust fund baby, silver spoon, sweatshop using, know-it-all can no longer hear exactly how utterly tone-deaf this sounds coming from a coiffed, haute couture fashioned, extraordinarily cushioned Daddy’s little girl who has never had to worry about money for a single second of her entire existence. What does she know about anything? Maybe she does know something about upward mobility in going from the fabulously wealthy to the absurdly wealthy. Do us all a favor IT, shut the f#(K up. And Red will give you one that really hurts, AOC is better looking than you.
“Trump’s trip to El Paso is the equivalent of a criminal returning to the scene of the crime.”
Todd Curry, UTEP political science professor – referring to Individual 1’s enforcement of forced family separation, the death of child asylum seekers, inadequate detention facilities and force-feeding of hunger strikers in the El Paso area.
“I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times and I think that he wanted Donald Trump to become president, and that’s why he’s there.”
Sarah Huckabee Sanders – White House Press Secretary
So now SHS is not only paid by the taxpayers to lie for Individual 1 – a/k/a Trumph – the Insult Comic President™, the public gets the added bonus of her divinations of God’s will. This would truly be insulting to people of faith (like Red) if it weren’t just so damn funny that these clowns really think that they have a divine right to rule. So little has changed. However, if God’s mission was to make Individual 1 President as the lynchpin to destroy the current incarnation of the Republican Party, then who is Red to question God’s wisdom?
“When the senator from Texas shut this government down in 2013, my state was flooded. It was under water. People were killed. People’s houses were destroyed. Their small businesses were ruined forever. And because of the senator from Texas, this government was shut down, for politics that he surfed to a second-place finish in the Iowa caucuses.”
Sen. Michael Bennett (D. Colo) lambasting Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Tex.) for complaining about the Democrats refusing to allow a bill to advance to pay Coast Guard salaries during the government shutdown. Democrats were insisting on reopening all governmental functions. Cruz, famously, initiated an ill-advised governmental shutdown with a filibuster that thrust him into the national spotlight in advance of the 2016 Republican primaries.
“. . . Nancy Pelosi or as I call her Nancy . . .”
Individual 1 a/k/a Trumph the Insult Comic President™ responding to Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s refusal to let him deliver the State of the Union address at the U.S. Capitol.
You just know Individual 1 wants to hang an insulting nickname on NP, but he just can’t bring himself to do it because he knows it will result in the biggest bitch-slap of his life.
“I have a recommendation for Ms. Sylvester and her lips and my backend.”
State Sen. Kel Seliger (R-Amarillo).
The relatively moderate Seliger was responding to comments made by Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick’s senior advisor Sherry Sylvester. Seliger, who had been the longtime chair of the Senate Committee on Higher Education, was upset after Patrick removed him from that committee and the Senate Finance Committee instead installing him as Chair of the Agriculture Committee. Sylvester remarked that if Seliger “believes serving as Chair of the Agriculture Committee . . . is beneath him, he should let us know and the lieutenant governor will appoint someone else.” Seliger’s remarks got him removed from that position and barred from a Republican caucus. Patrick may not be very smart, but he sure plays hardball. This is a warning to all Texas Republicans who are not willing to tow the ultra right-wing Tea Party line of Patrick and his ilk.
“The Bible says even Heaven itself is going to have a wall around it. Not everybody is going to be allowed in. So if walls are immoral, then God is immoral.”
Robert Jeffress, Pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas – chief Trump apologist, war monger, moral hypocrite and now expert on heavenly construction.
Red knows one thing – if Jeffress is going to be in heaven, he wants no part of it.
“Let’s show everybody, this is the Republican Party of Texas. We are not the party of bigots.”
J.T. Edwards, a member of the State Republican Executive Committee advocating for a resolution confirming the Texas GOP’s commitment to religious liberty.
All Red can say is “Nice try.”
“I got cussed out by my mom this morning because she’s been dying to meet Pop. She told me today that I better make sure that she gets to meet him.”
Demar DeRozan – San Antonio Spurs guard on his mother wanting to meet legendary Spurs Coach Greg Popovich.
