Expose This Bitch

Betsy DeVos with her fingers in the Financial Aid kitty....

James Runcie, the former chief operating officer of Federal Student Aid, sent a letter of resignation this week that said he could no longer in good conscience perform his job if he was being asked to serve as a political pawn.
At issue was DeVos’ insistence that he testify in front of the House oversight committee about improper student aid payments this week.
“I have been consistently on record and clear about not testifying at the upcoming hearing on improper payments,” Runcie explained in his resignation letter.
In addition to his unwillingness to testify this week, Runcie also alleged that DeVos’ education department was working to “divert critical resources” from the financial aid office.
I want to smack someone.

Friday Varmint Bloggging - Bunniez!

In the herb garden - there were 6 - now there are 3 - hoping that Mama BunBun didn't just take off on them.  They are really little, can barely walk/hop - we have caught a couple of them and tried to put them back in the nest, but they keep leaving.  Hence the straw---if it's been moved, and they are still there, it means she has not abandoned the nest.

Why? Just Why?

Why haven't we arrested him yet?  Why hasn't his wife divorced him?  Why isn't there some way to get rid of this ass clown?

U.S. President Donald Trump told his Philippine counterpart that Washington has sent two nuclear submarines to waters off the Korean peninsula, the New York Times said, comments likely to raise questions about his handling of sensitive information.
The transcript of the call was first reported by the Intercept.
Trump has said “a major, major conflict” with North Korea is possible because of its nuclear and missile programs and that all options are on the table but that he wants to resolve the crisis diplomatically.
North Korea has vowed to develop a missile mounted with a nuclear warhead that can strike the mainland United States, saying the program is necessary to counter U.S. aggression.
Trump told Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte Washington had “a lot of firepower over there”, according to the New York Times, which quoted a transcript of an April 29 call between the two.

All You Loofah-Faced Shitgibbons - Beware!

Daylin Leach may be on the move!

State Sen. Daylin Leach, an outspoken liberal who once called President Trump a “fascist, loofah-faced, s-gibbon” is considering challenging Republican Rep. Patrick Meehan next year, potentially setting up a clash of two well-known political figures as Democrats try to capitalize on the left’s anti-Trump fervor.
Leach said he had begun talking to voters and key political figures in both Pennsylvania and Washington, and has commissioned a poll to feel out his chances in the Seventh Congressional District, centered on Delaware County.
While the moderate district leans slightly Republican, Trump lost it last year, giving Democrats hope that they can use the roiling energy on the left against Meehan.

He can still keep his state senator's seat if he loses, so the only thing he has to lose  Daylin has had a lot of support - especially since the Shitgibbon comment - so here's to hoping he can get financing and not have to lose his proverbial shirt.

Entitle This.

I so wish they would stop calling them "entitlements" - I am sure most people with disabilities who receive SSDI or SNAP feel really "entitled"....  (she said, sarcastically)

Fucking Asshole.

  • Where the entitlement cuts are made: From programs including SNAP (food stamps), CHIP (Children's Health Insurance Program), and SSDI (Disability Insurance). The budget proposal will also assume that Trump can sign into law the American Health Care Act — the Obamacare repeal and replace bill that passed the House and is now being considered by the Senate. That bill makes substantial cuts to Medicaid.

Unless You Mean the Horse's Ass?

The president may not be a child, but I wouldn't compare him to an animal, either.....that's insulting the animal....

The Trump presidency is the discovery that what you thought was a man in a bear suit is just a bear. Suddenly the fact that he wouldn’t play by the rules makes total sense. It wasn’t that he refused to, that he was playing a long game. It was that he was a wild animal who eats fish and climbs trees, and English words were totally unintelligible to him. In retrospect, you should have suspected that after he just straight-up ate a guy. But at the time everyone cheered. It was good TV. Also, he was your bear.
