‘SNL’ star Tina Fey accidentally shows how badly Trump is triggering liberals

 

SNL writer and comedian Tina Fey performed a sketch that accidentally portrayed a liberal being triggered by President Donald Trump. “Saturday Night Live” writer and comedian Tina Fey made a special appearance Thursday night on the show’s “news” segment, “Weekend Update,” to show how difficult it is to deal with President Donald Trump and his first term.

In the sketch, Fey offered a way to deal with all the emotions in response to Trump’s actions, and she inadvertently portrayed a picture of a liberal being triggered by every item on the president’s agenda.

“I know a lot of us are feeling anxious, and we’re asking ourselves, ‘What can I do? I’m just one person, what can I do?’” she said. “And so I would urge people this Saturday instead of participating in the screaming matches and potential violence, find a local business you support — maybe a Jewish-run bakery, or an African-American-run bakery — order a cake with the American flag on it, and uhm, just eat it.”

“OK, wait I’m sorry, how is that supposed to help?” Collin Jost, co-host of “Weekend Update,” asked.

“Love is love, Collin!” she responded, with cake in her mouth.

“And the next time when you see a bunch of white boys in polo shirts screaming about taking our country back, when you wanna scream, ‘It’s not our country, we stole it, from the Native Americans!’ And when you want to yell it, don’t yell at the Klan, Collin, yell it into the cake!” she said.

“Then when Ann Coulter crawls out of her roach motel and says, ‘Antifa attacked Republicans in Berkeley,’ and you’re like, ‘OK, yard sale Barbie, but the other side is Nazis and Klansmen! And also who drove the car into the crowd? Hillary’s emails?” she shouted.

“Sheetcaking is a grassroots movement, Collin!” She said later in the sketch, to loud applause. “Most of the women I know have been doing it once a week since the election!”

She also called House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) a “p***y” for not standing up to Trump.

The writers of “Saturday Night Live” has constantly used the actions of the administration as fodder for their sketches, and the media have showered the show with praise. Some reports indicated thatTrump was upset with the show’s characterization of former White House press secretary Sean Spicer and that Trump had considered firing Spicer over it.

Fey is well known for her impersonation of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin when she was former GOP presidential nominee John McCain’s running mate in 2008.

Tina Fey Has Something To Say To White, Female Trump Voters

IN OUR OPINION

I offer no apology for what I am posting for this is truly how I feel.
GONNA VENT HERE. I have lived through Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy,Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Obama. In my lifetime have I never seen or heard of a President being scrutinized over every word he speaks, humiliated by the public to the point of wanting to hurt someone, slander, ridicule, insulted, lied to, threatened to murder him, threatened to rape our Beautiful First Lady, and have his children also insulted and humiliated.
I am truly ashamed of the people of this country. I am ashamed of the ruthless, hating, cruel, Trump haters who have no morals, and news reporters who feel they have the right to purposely lie and do the things they are doing. Every other President after they were elected and took the oath of office were left alone, they weren’t on the news 24/7 being dissected by every word out of their mouth, ALWAYS BEING PRESSURED to do this or that and never being given the support to do the important work that needs to be done. ENOUGH is ENOUGH is ENOUGH, LEAVE THE MAN ALONE AND LET HIM DO HIS JOB FOR GOD’S SAKE!

Trump may have just gotten his biggest court win! Judge Gives Trump EXACTLY What He Needs To Prove Democrat Party Are Criminals

President Donald Trump’s commission investigating voter fraud may request voter roll data from U.S. states, a federal judge ruled on Monday, in a setback for groups that contend the effort could infringe on privacy rights.

The judge said a lawsuit by the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) watchdog did not have grounds for an injunction in part because the collection of data by the commission was not technically an action by a government agency so was not bound by laws that govern what such entities can do.

From Reuters

Washington-based U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly also pointed out that the commission was an advisory body that does not have legal authority to compel states to hand over the data.

Most state officials who oversee elections and election law experts say that voter fraud is rare in the United States.

Trump, who set up the commission by executive order on May 12, has charged without evidence that millions voted unlawfully in the November presidential election.

Republican Trump won the Electoral College, which tallies wins in states and determines the presidential winner. But he lost the popular vote to his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

“We look forward to continuing to work with state election leaders to gather information and identify opportunities to improve election integrity,” the commission’s vice chair Kris Kobach said in a statement after Monday’s ruling.

Kobach is the secretary of state for Kansas and a high-profile advocate of tougher laws on immigration and voter identification. Civil rights groups and Democratic lawmakers have said the commission could lead to new ID requirements and other measures making it harder to vote.

The panel, chaired by Vice President Mike Pence, met for the first time last week. It ran headlong into controversy when Kobach asked states to turn over voter information.

The data included names, the last four digits of Social Security numbers, addresses, birth dates, political affiliation, felony convictions and voting histories.

Some states refused, and others said they needed to study whether they could provide the data.

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a separate lawsuit against the commission to ensure that it follows open government laws.

“The commission’s efforts to gather personal data should not escape judicial review,” EPIC’s senior counsel Alan Butler said in a statement, adding the group would closely watch what the commission does next.

SO FAR – EXCELLENT

I do not subscribe to the “Donald Trump/ Russia” conspiracy, but just suppose for a minute that the Russians did interfere. What exact harm was done? Let’s see.
We now have a president who genuinely loves this country and wants to “make America great again” — not a bad thing.
We have preserved American jobs and put thousands of Americans back to work — not a bad thing.
We have removed thousands of unjustified slackers off the welfare and food stamp rolls — not a bad thing.
Illegal immigration is down about 70 percent — not a bad thing.
We finally have a president with the back- bone to tell NATO that since 1945 American taxpayers have kept Europe safe, after rebuilding their industrial base, and it’s high time they pay their fair share for their own protection. Putting NATO on notice: not a bad thing.
Trump has reversed executive orders by President Barack Obama that curtail American businesses large and small — not a bad thing.
Triimp told the G7 “global warming conspirators” that U.S. taxpayers will not pay hundreds of billions of dollars to other countries so their economies may grow while American industry shrivels up and dies — again, not a bad thing.
The list can go on and on, but you get the picture.

WHY MUELLER SHOULD RESIGN AS SPECIAL COUNSEL

A congressionally appointed Special Counsel investigator is supposed to be completely unbiased (a true impossibility) in order to be able to run a reliable investigation. However, the Special Counsel appointed by Congress, Robert Mueller, to investigation Russian interference of the election along with any collusion or obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump has a close friendship with fired FBI Director James Comey. That relationship is causing concern among many Trump supporters and Trump’s legal team.

President Trump’s legal team is zeroing-in on the relationship between former FBI directors Robert Mueller and James Comey to argue that their long professional partnership represents a conflict of interest that compromises Mueller’s integrity as special counsel.

The effort to make the case about a conflict of interest around Mueller’s investigative body comes amid reports that Mueller is looking into whether Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice for allegedly asking Comey to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Trump later fired Comey.

The president tweeted Friday that he is under investigation for firing fired Comey — proceedings Trump ripped as a “witch hunt.” …

In addition to the friendship between Mueller and Comey, it should be noted that Mueller was Comey’s predecessor as Director of the FBI and undoubtedly worked closely with Comey in the transition. Many believe that Comey’s testimony before the Senate where he stated that Trump told him that he ‘hoped’ the investigation of Michael Flynn would go away, amounted to obstruction of justice, and since Comey and Mueller have been talking, Trump allies are wondering how Mueller interprets it.

Trump later fired Comey.

The president tweeted Friday that he is under investigation for firing Comey — proceedings Trump ripped as a “witch hunt.”

Those making the case that Mueller is compromised because of his relationship with Comey point to a Justice Department statute that says recusal is necessary when there is the “appearance” of a “personal” conflict of interest.

“Mueller is compromised by the close professional — and I would sure think personal — relationship with Comey,” said Bill Otis, the former special counsel for President George H.W. Bush. “That is an encompassing standard…that should be interpreted broadly so that the public will have maximum confidence in the outcome of the special counsel’s work, however it winds up.”

That is not the view of many others in the legal community, who are irate that some would seek to cast doubt on the veracity of Mueller’s special counsel by alleging that he is incapable of conducting a fair investigation.

Mueller, a decorated Marine Corps veteran, has a sterling reputation as an independent investigator.

“Mueller is absolutely not compromised by his professional relationship with Comey,” said Richard Painter, the White House ethics lawyer for President George W. Bush. “This is just an effort to undermine the credibility of the special counsel.”

Spokespeople for Trump’s legal team and Mueller’s special counsel declined to comment.

These heavy questions and many more hung over Washington on Friday as Mueller built the special counsel’s staff by hiring a dozen top-level prosecutors.

Mueller’s hires have experience in complicated investigations, including Watergate, Enron and Mafia prosecutions. That’s raised speculation that the special counsel investigation might extend to Trump’s business empire, which the president has tried to shield from public scrutiny.

“The biggest risks in these kinds of cases are the collateral offenses,” said Jonathan Turley, a legal professor at George Washington University.

Vice President Pence has obtained legal counsel, as has Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Members of Trump’s transition team are being told to preserve materials that might be relevant to the special counsel’s investigation.

“If I worked at the White House right now I’d quit,” said Painter. “There’s no way I’d stick around and wait for someone to throw me under the bus.”

The administration’s allies are pushing back back furiously on the special counsel investigation, pointing to donations some prosecutors made to Democratic candidates. Trump’s backers are also fuming over the latest round of anonymous leaks, which they say are designed to keep a shadow of suspicion over the White House.

Deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein took the unusual step Thursday of releasing a statement warning that reports citing anonymous officials are not to be trusted, suggesting that the leaks revealing the obstruction investigation into Trump did not come from the Justice Department or the special counsel.

 Still, speculation is growing that Trump is laying the groundwork to have Mueller removed as special counsel, an action that Trump’s allies warn would backfire and potentially lead to impeachment.

“It would be a mistake to fire Mueller at this point,” said Bill Barr, a former attorney general in the George H.W. Bush administration.

The fate of Rosenstein is also the subject of intense speculation. There are questions about whether the deputy attorney general, who wrote the memo the administration initially used to justify firing Comey, will have to recuse himself from the investigation if he becomes a witness in the obstruction case.

“The safest thing is probably for him to recuse himself,” said John Wood, a former U.S. attorney.

Again, the legal community is split here.

“Rosenstein needs to stay on to protect the integrity of the investigation,” said Robert Ray, the former independent counsel for the Whitewater case. “If Rod thinks he needs to recuse, I’m sure he will, but for the life of me I don’t see a basis for it.”

But the allegations that Mueller is too close to Comey have moved to the forefront of the debate around the special counsel and go to the heart of whether the special counsel can conduct an impartial investigation around Trump and his associates.

Mueller was the director of the FBI in 2003, when Comey was deputy attorney general under John Ashcroft.

Their professional relationship was cemented in 2004, when Mueller backed Comey in a dramatic standoff against George W. Bush when the president sought to reauthorize a controversial surveillance program they believed to be illegal.

Comey famously rushed to the bedside of a hospitalized Ashcroft to talk him out of reauthorizing the program. Mueller assisted, ordering Ashcroft’s FBI detail to give Comey access and to not allow White House officials to be alone with the sick attorney general.

Both threatened to resign the next day. Bush backed off, ultimately asking the Justice Department to find firmer legal footing for the surveillance program.

That dramatic story takes on new meaning in 2017 with Comey and Mueller back in the thick of things.

Comey has given his detractors some additional political ammunition, testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee that he leaked details of his private meetings with Trump in order to spur the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel.

It worked. Rosenstein appointed Mueller.

“Their historical stand together during the Bush administration has made them part of the legacy and lore of the Justice Department,” Turley said. “Mueller would be a tremendous choice for a special counsel. I would not have recommended him for this one.”

Now, legal experts are debating the veracity of two bombshell reports in the Washington Post. One story said Trump is the target of an obstruction investigation. A second said that the financial transactions of Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, had attracted the scrutiny of the special counsel.

Kushner’s spokesman said that it is “standard practice” for the special counsel to request records associated with the investigation.

Barr, the former attorney general, said the media stories were overblown. Most of what is going on now is early, normal course investigative work that says nothing about the special counsel’s ultimate findings, Barr said.

“I suspect the Washington Post story exaggerates the maturity of the investigation,” he told The Hill. “I don’t think it has crystallized to that point.”

Barr also called the obstruction investigation “asinine” and warned that the special counsel risks “taking on the look of an entirely political operation to overthrow the president.”

But Ray, the Whitewater lawyer, said the White House is not doing itself any favors by attacking Mueller.

“I’m sure the White House feels threatened and under siege, but it’s unfortunate that they’re trying to undermine the duly appointed special counsel,” he said. “I’ve lived through this before. It does nothing but prolong the investigation. That’s not in anyone’s interests and will only undermine public confidence.”

U.S. May Withdraw From U.N. Human Rights Council Over Anti-Israel Bias

“When the world’s preeminent human rights body is turned into a haven for dictators…”

The United States is expected to warn the international community on Tuesday of its withdrawal from the United Nations Human Rights Council unless reforms are enacted to remove the Council’s “anti-Israel bias,” according to a report by Reuters.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley announced in an op-ed in The Washington Post that the Trump administration would decide whether to withdraw from the Council after the conclusion of its three-week session in Geneva, Switzerland, this month.

The announcement would come less than a week after President Donald Trump shocked the world by withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement.

Haley will be attending the Council’s sessions in Geneva this week, where she plans to call for reforms.

Most notably, she plans to call on the Council to “end its practice of wrongly singling out Israel for criticism.”

“When the council passes more than 70 resolutions against Israel, a country with a strong human rights record, and just seven resolutions against Iran, a country with an abysmal human rights record, you know something is seriously wrong,” Haley wrote.

Haley also accused some members of the Council, such as Venezuela and Cuba, of ignoring the membership requirement to “uphold the highest standard” of human rights.

“The presence of multiple human rights-violating countries on the Human Rights Council has damaged both the reputation of the council and the cause of human rights,” Haley wrote. “When the world’s preeminent human rights body is turned into a haven for dictators, the idea of international cooperation in support of human dignity is discredited.”

Haley made clear that changes must be made to the Human Rights Council to “restore the legitimacy of universal human rights.”

John Fisher, the Geneva director of Human Rights Watch, a research and advocacy group, said the Council is likely to work with Haley to enact her desired reforms.

“Our understanding is that it is going to be a message of engagement and reform,” Fisher told reporters.

Fisher said the Council’s focus on Israel was “a reasonable concern.”

“It is an anomaly that there is a dedicated agenda item in a way that there isn’t for North Korea or Syria or anything else,” he said.

A total of eight groups, including Freedom House and the Jacob Blaustein Institute, wrote to Haley in May urging her to stay on the path of reform.

The groups warn that Israel may face a “greater degree” of “unfair targeting” if the U.S. were to withdraw from the Council.

“Covfefe” Mystery Solved – Here’s What It Means

The internet immediately blew up this Wednesday when President Trump tweeted the word “Covfefe.” Thousands of left-oriented Twitter users immediately started mocking President Trump, accusing him of “sleep-texting” or making a typo, but now, the troubling mystery has finally been unraveled only to find out what the word truly means.

Just within hours of the tweet, hundreds of mockery pictures were being made and posted on social media, until Sean Spicer himself, addressed the “covfefe” mystery, and said that it wasn’t what anyone thought, and it was actually intentional. When translated in Arabic, the word “Cov fe’fe” means “I will stand up.” ***

Comey Tried To Hide In White House Curtains To Avoid Trump

Former FBI Director James Comey reportedly once tried to blend into the curtains in the White House Blue Room in order to avoid being approached by President Trump

According to a New York Times report published Thursday, Comey tried to blend into the Blue Room’s blue curtains during a White House visit for a ceremony honoring law enforcement officials who provided security at inauguration.

From The Hill

Comey recounted the incident to his friend, Brookings Institution fellow Benjamin Wittes, who told the story to The Times. Comey, who is 6 feet 8 inches tall, was wearing a dark blue suit and stood near the similarly colored curtains in the back of the room, hoping that Trump would not spot him.
“He thought he had gotten through and not been noticed or singled out and that he was going to get away without an individual interaction,” Wittes told the Times.

However, Comey was spotted by the president, who called out to him and joked he had become “more famous” than himself. Trump went in for a hug when Comey was reportedly trying to only give Trump a handshake.

“Comey said that as he was walking across the room he was determined that there wasn’t going to be a hug,” Wittes said. “It was bad enough there was going to be a handshake. And Comey has long arms so Comey said he pre-emptively reached out for a handshake and grabbed the president’s hand. But Trump pulled him into an embrace and Comey didn’t reciprocate. If you look at the video, it’s one person shaking hands and another hugging.”

The Times report mostly went into Comey’s experience with the president leading up to his abrupt firing last week. Comey reportedly tried to distance himself from Trump to ensure the FBI’s independence from the White House.
