SNL hit a home run last night.

I think the only thing wrong with this skit is that Steve Bannon is actually scarier than the angel of death.

And fatter.

But as great as that cold open was, it was not the best skit of the night in my opinion.

That was the great Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer and she just killed it!

I can't even begin to imagine how pissed off all of this makes Trump and his merry band of morons, but just thinking of it puts a big old smile on my face.

    O’Reilly: “Putin’s a killer”

    Trump: “There are a lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers. What do you think—our country’s so innocent?”

    TREASON!

    Bret Stephens ✔ @StephensWSJ

    Trump puts US on moral par with Putin's Russia.

    Never in history has a President slandered his country like this.

      Welcome to Trumpland. Stephens is correct, of course, but how hard did the WSJ fight Trump during the primaries and during the campaign last fall?

    Excellent SNL skits last night. Two weeks ago (last week was a repeat), Trump said nothing about the Putin pee pee tape skit, and so far he's said nothing about last night's skewering. These two SNLs have gone beyond where things went before, and Trump can't say a thing because the skits go right to the core of his admin: he praises Putin/is in Putin's pocket and is controlled by Bannon, Trump's brain.

    Trump's Tantrum About a Judge Just Made Life Hell for His Supreme Court Nominee

    ...This question, though, will be near-impossible to duck: "Do you endorse the president's stated belief that the federal judiciary is beneath the president and bows to his will?" Gorusch would never say yes, of course, because he's a federal judge himself, and no federal judge believes this, and saying so would be a giant middle finger to his colleagues everywhere. But if Gorusch says no, he turns that same middle finger to the guy who just nominated him for the Supreme Court, and—assuming he's eventually confirmed—makes it very hard for him to explain himself if he one day votes to uphold the ban. Gorsuch already faced a grueling confirmation process, and last night, Donald Trump didn't make things any easier.

    LGBTQ Community Protests Trump At Historic Stonewall Inn

    “We are going to do everything to ensure the Supreme Court doesn’t turn the clock back to the 1960s.”

    The moment we’ve been waiting for has arrived: “SNL” finally showed us what life is like inside President Donald Trump’s Oval Office.

    On the show’s cold open this week, Baldwin reprised his role as Trump for the first time since the former “Apprentice” host officially took over as the United States commander-in-chief.

    After an aide (played by Kyle Mooney) tells the president that his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner have gone away for the night since they “don’t work on Shabbat,” the president realizes he’s free to sow chaos. “When the Jews are away, the goys will play. Send in Steve Bannon,” he says.

    After Baldwin’s Trump explains to his chief strategist that he is “tired and cranky and I feel like I could just freak out on somebody,” the skeletal, Grim Reaper-esque version of Bannon weighs in with some advice: “Then maybe you should call Australia.”

    In a spoof of Trump’s now famously hostile phone call with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, Baldwin’s Trump melts down on Beck Bennett’s Turnbull, who thanks Trump for accepting 1,200 refugees from Down Under.

    “No, no, no! No refugees. America first. Australia sucks. Your reef is failing. Prepare to go to war!” blares Trump before abruptly ending the phone call.

    Trump’s foreign outreach doesn’t end there. The parodied president goes on to badger Alex Moffat’s incarnation of Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, and even manages to make Holocaust Remembrance Day all about him in a call with Kate McKinnon’s German Chancellor Angela Merkel. “As you know, 6 million people ... were at my inauguration,” Trump crudely claims.

    Later, Baldwin’s character calls Mexico’s president again (this time, in a prank call) and meets his match when Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe (played by Kenan Thompson) gives Trump a firm dressing-down: “You think you are bit of dictator? I will rip out your spine and drink from your skull! You can not even walk down stairs, you little white bitch!”

    The sketch closes with a behind-the-scenes look at Trump and Bannon’s unusual seating arrangement.

      Fact: Repealing Obamacare Will Absolutely Decimate Red State America

      ...So not only will America overall be taken back to the dark ages of pre-Obamacare, red states will be hit the hardest. In terms of the increase in the uninsured rate per state, of the top 30 that will be hit hardest, 20 are red states that voted for Donald Trump.

      So how much will the uninsured rate increase with an Obamacare repeal? Here’s the list (top 20) for Trump states:

      West Virginia – 208%
      Kentucky – 200%
      Michigan – 175%
      Arkansas – 171%
      Montana – 168%
      Ohio – 155%
      Louisiana – 154%
      North Dakota – 154%
      Wisconsin – 144%
      Maine – 122%
      Nebraska – 111%
      Indiana – 103%
      Idaho – 101%
      Arizona 95%
      Missouri – 93%
      South Dakota – 92%
      Florida – 90%
      North Carolina – 90%
      Utah – 83%
      Tennessee – 79%

      The blue states that would be most affected by the repeal would be Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Illinois, Oregon, and Washington.

      Why not?

      Our new representative, retired from a career in the Marines, is very anxious, at least he was during the campaign, to end Social Security, Medicare and Obamacare. And, most surely, also Medicaid. Bergman, who represents Michigan's First District, doesn't like bureaucrats. That's why he voted against an ethics oversight group for the House. He thought it might help streamline the House. Unhuh. Just get rid of all those federal employees. I'm sure he wouldn't want to get rid of any of his fancy retirement benefits from a lifetime career in the Marines, where he did - who knows what. Maybe he was just a bureaucrat in the Marine Corps with a fancy title and great benefits. I'm wondering if he's going to turn down his benefits and pay check from the House of Representatives. He could contribute it all to help a few of the many poor people in his district who will be in dire straits if federal benefits disappear.

    “Mark Wahlberg” goes to town on an American tragedy in this script for The Bowling Green Massacre

    The Bowling Green Massacre—a.k.a., the dumb Kellyanne Conway gaffe that caught the hearts and minds of a nation—has inspired plenty of jokes, and even a semi-fake charitable movement, already. But no American tragedy can be truly real until Mark Wahlberg (or at least “Mark Wahlberg”) has made a Patriots Day-style movie about it. Enter comedy writer Jordan VanDina, a.k.a. Weekend Scripts, who spent a recent weekend penning a freedom-loving thriller in which a heroic Wahlberg is prepared to die for America’s right to bowl.

      Yes, KC is obviously very pleased with herself and can lie as much as DJT does, just with a smile on her face. I think she's sees herself as stealing HRC's crown from her - she can't stop mentioning Hillary, who has barely said boo since her concession speech. KC has 4 kids and must feel very secure in her own bubble, being willing to get DJT elected, and abetting him in rolling back so much of the progress we have made in this country over the past 8 years. I watched her on Bill Maher's show, and he's known her for over 20 years and he was calling bullshit on everything she said, even as she smiled and spun her alternative facts.
      How about we send all of them to an alternative White House in an alternative US where they can be in control of nothing here, but can act like they are, and we'll pretend we love them as we have a real progressive president who can continue Obama's work and add to and strengthen it?

      Pinocchios all around: Especially at the top, the Trump administration is full of people who may perhaps seem "unwell."

      We'd place Bannon, Flynn and Trump himself at the top of that pile. We'd also look to Kellyanne Conway, who has furiously done it again.

      As the leading authority skillfully tells us, Conway "is an American political activist currently serving as Counselor to President Donald [J.] Trump." In that role, she has demonstrated at least three major skills:

      She has demonstrated 1) the ability to avoid responding to any question at all, and 2) the ability to reply to any question about her boss by immediately discussing the acts of someone else.

      Most significantly, she had demonstrated 3) the ability to Take Offense at Any Word That Has Ever Been Spoken by Any Person On the Face of the Earth.

      Why Kellyanne Conway Doesn’t Get A Break On Her Bowling Green Massacre Lie

      If politics and governance worked like basketball, at this point Ms. Conway would have been fouled out of the game.

      ...And taking a “small truth” about the arrest of two terrorist sympathizers and conflating it into “a massacre nobody told you about” is not an honest mistake. It is a heinous breach of trust by the special counsel to the president of the United States ― a breach that cannot, should not and is not being tolerated.

      So no, Ms. Conway, you do not get the benefit of the doubt on this one. Or the next one. Or the next one. Because we’re onto you. And we’re not only not ready to make nice ― we’re not going to back down.

    ================================
    Trump: Obamacare replacement might take a year

    The timetable was notably longer than he's cited lately
    .
    President Donald Trump walked back his recent vow that Obamacare would be replaced in short order, telling FOX News’ Bill O’Reilly that the process is “complicated” and “maybe it’ll take till sometime into next year.”

    "It statutorily takes a while to get," Trump said in a wide-ranging interview that aired during the Super Bowl pre-game show. "We’re going to be putting it in fairly soon, I think that yes I would like to say by the end of the year at least the rudiments, but we should have something within the year and the following year."

    In the interview, Trump also stopped just short of promising a deal to cut taxes this year — “I think so, yes. … I would like to say yes,” he told O’Reilly — and vowed to set up a commission to investigate voter fraud headed by Vice President Mike Pence.
