It's about fried chicken

Senator Gillibrand -- at a rally in SC -- asked an aide if she should eat fried chicken with a fork or her fingers . . . the decision was fingers.

Then -- the Twitter universe went batshit because she asked a perfectly reasonable question.

No one seems to be concerned about this:

Fox's reaction to Trump's speech

I refuse to watch Fox.

My son called me after Trump's speech and said Fox fact checked him brutally and actually called some of his statements "lies."

Did anyone see this?

That Trump-China trade deal? JPMorgan warns investors it's bullshit, no evidence of a deal

Source: RawStory

-- quote

A new note from investment bank JPMorgan advises traders to not buy into the hype that President Donald Trump has ended his own trade war with China.

As reported by CNBC’s Carl Quintanilla, JPMorgan is telling investors that Trump’s declaration this week that China will immediately drop all tariffs on American cars has no basis in reality.

“It doesn’t seem like anything was actually agreed to at the dinner and White House officials are contorting themselves into pretzels to reconcile Trump’s tweets (which seem if not completely fabricated then grossly exaggerated) with reality,” the note states.

How about that DEEP STATE!!!!!

Been listening to the news all day today as the walls close in on the Trump Crime Family.

I for one am thankful for the DEEP STATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And the deeper they dig into Trump, the better.

Today brought some VERY interesting developments: (1) German cops raided DeutscheBank; (2) Lawyers who represented Trump for years were raided. I now willing to bet that by the time Mueller and various state Attorneys General get through with the Trump Criminal Enterprise, they will be penniless. No more gold toilets. And all thanks to the DEEP STATE!!

Here goes the Trump economy down the drain . . .

And it's taking a lot of hard-working, innocent people with it. In Trump country.

https://www.freep.com/story/money/cars/general-motors/2018/11/26/ontario-plant-closure/2112539002/

General Motors will close three assembly plants by the end of 2019, it said Thursday, including Detroit-Hamtramck, Lordstown in Ohio and Oshawa in Ontario.

Approximately 5,600 jobs are at stake: roughly 1,500 in Hamtramck; 1,600 in Lordstown; and about 2,500 in Oshawa.

The Hamtramck plant makes the Chevrolet Volt and Impala, the Cadillac CT6 and the Buick LaCrosse.

"GM is continuing to take proactive steps to improve overall business performance, including the reorganization of its global product development staffs, the realignment of its manufacturing capacity and a reduction of salaried workforce," the company said in a news release Monday.

“We recognize the need to stay in front of changing market conditions and customer preferences to position our company for long-term success,” said GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra.

The announcement is part of aggressive cost-cutting from the Detroit carmaker, which had a deadline last week for North American salaried workers who had at least 12 years with the company to accept a voluntary buyout offer. The Free Press reported that the company hoped to trim 7,000 white-collar jobs and has said it could move ahead with involuntary cuts if the number of workers stepping forward falls short.

Who here is going to DC for the parade?

Monday is Nov 11, Veterans' Day. Trump told us he had directed the Dept of Defense to stage a really, really big parade down Pennsylvania Avenue, to the White House. It's supposed to be the biggest parade in the history of the world.

So -- who here is headed for DC for Monday's parade??

There is a parade on Monday, isn't there????

Trump and "birthright citizenship"

By now we all have heard of Trump's attack on the 14th Amendment and "birthright citizenship."

To summarize:
-- Under the 14th Amendment, a child born in the US is a US citizen, regardless of the parent(s)' citizenship.
-- Trump wants to change this so those criminal brown people can't slip across the border, have a child, then the US citizen kid brings in the whole family.

As usual with things Trump, there's a problem. In fact, it's a BIG problem.

Seems that a lot of pregnant women are coming to the US to give birth. But they are mainly wealthy women and many of them are coming from Russia and China. AND -- they are especially drawn to an area of Palm Beach FL that has become known as "Little Moscow" because of the Russian women giving birth there.

So -- what does this have to do with Trump?

It seems their favorite place to stay while waiting for the kid to arrive is in TRUMP-BRANDED CONDOS!!!!!!! Trump may be making a LOT of money from "birthright citizenship" -- it's not clear how much he's making.

"Look at me!! Look me in the eye!!"

Today I had an encounter with a Republican that . . that . . . well, that left me shaking. It's a long story. Here goes.

I live in a red, rural Virginia county. Last week, a deer struck my old Ford Explorer; took it to the local body shop for an estimate. My insurance company approved the work, so, today, I took the SUV to the shop to leave it for the work to be done.

When I arrived at the body shop, there was a lady in the office talking with the owner. I stood inside the door, waiting my turn.

According to what she told him, she had been all over Virginia getting out the vote for Republicans. She was raving about Democrats . . . the usual horseshit.

Last week yard signs started appearing along the roadsides in our county -- pairs of signs that read:
"Resist Socialism; Vote Republican"
"Results not Resistance; Vote Republican"

A pair of these signs was sitting in the body shop office.

She turned and handed me a Republican pamphlet. I quietly refused. Then she fired both barrels at me:

"You must be a Democrat!!"

"Yes, ma'm, I am. Lifelong."

"And you are taking advantage of everything Trump has done but you won't support him."

"Everything Trump has done? And what would that be?"

"Why, this great economy!!!"

"This great economy started in late 2009!!"

She turned to the body shop guy and shouted: "See!!! An angry Democrat!! That's all they are -- angry."

To which I responded: "Ma'm, I am not angry. Not even a little bit. But I am tired. I am tired to the bone. You see, I'm a retired United States Army infantry colonel with three combat tours in Vietnam -- as a platoon leader, a company commander, and as a Special Forces A Team commander. I was wounded four times. Of my 30 years in the Army, I spent 8 months in hospitals recovering from wounds and today, at age 74, I cannot lift my left arm above my shoulder. And yet you Republicans call me 'socialist, communist, Marxist.' Because I am a Democrat, you tell me I hate this country."

By this time, she had turned her back to me. I continued:

"Look at me. Look me in the eye and tell me I'm a communist who hates this country. Look at this scar on the side of my head -- the side of my head where half the ear is missing . . . that's where a North Vietnamese soldier hit me with a machete, trying to kill me. Look at this scar and tell me I hate this country!!"

She continued to look away.

I quietly handed to the body shop guy the key to my Explorer, told him to call me when it's finished.

As I was leaving, I said to her -- with her back still turned: "And, ma'm, you have a nice day."

As God is my witness, I hate these sonsofbitches.

Okay, time to ask this question:

Is Jeff Flake trying to set himself up to challenge Trump for the GOP Presidential nomination in 2020?
