Funny Names and Funny Moments, Mnuchin Makes Memes Excusing the Dangerous Clown, By Hal Brown (READ/COMMENT ON DAILY KOS)
|Click image to enlarge. From NY Times|
Can you imagine covering Bernie or Pocahontas? Maxine Waters, a very low I.Q. individual. Nancy Pelosi, you can't have that. And Conor Lamb, Lamb the sham.
“You know he likes to put names on people. … the president likes making funnynames….He’s using these vulgarities in the context of a campaign rally and obviously there were a lot of funny moments on, on, on that rally.”
BEGIN TAPE)DONALD TRUMP:Maxine Waters…a very low-IQ individual. Ever see her? You ever see her? You ever see her? We will impeach him. We will impeach the Pres -- but he hasn’t done anything wrong. Doesn’t matter, we will impeach him. She’s a low IQ individual. You can’t help it -- she really is.(END TAPE)CHUCK TODD:I think you most recently appeared before her committee. She’s the Ranking Member on House Financial Services. If somebody on your staff referred to her that way in public, would that person still be on your staff?SECRETARY STEVE MNUCHIN STARTS EXCUSING THE VLUGARITIES:Chuck, you know I’ve been with the president and at campaigns. You know he likes to put names on people. He did that throughout the entire presidential election. Including all of the Republicans that he beat. So these are campaign rally issues.CHUCK TODD ETS THE TONE:So is that acceptable---so you’re saying that’s acceptable behavior for the rest of the administration too?SECRETARY STEVE MNUCHIN: STUMBLESI…I…again.CHUCK TODD: A QUICK JABOr just unique to him?SECRETARY STEVE MNUCHIN: STARTS THE MEMEAgain Chuck. This is something that is at a campaign rally. And the president likes making funny names.
CHUCK TODD ASKS A GOOD QUESTIONSo the image of an American president encouraging boos of American press corps-- of the American press corps, and discouraging boo’s of a dictator from North Korea. Your reaction, sir?SECRETARY STEVE MNUCHIN AVOIDS ANSWERING IT with prepared remarks about the economy:Look as you know, first of all this president has created lots of news. Okay, and there have been lots of misreporting on the president. What you should focus on is we’ve had a great week of results. So this is a historic situation of the president meeting with North Korea with no preconditions on the United States side, whatsoever. As well as steel tariffs. This was a big week for our trade and economic policies. We’ve been focused on for the last year creating solid economic growth. That’s been a combination of tax reform, which I think you know a lot of people said would never get done. 30 years in the making. Regulatory relief and trade. So the president is focused on economic growth and we’re well aware and on our way to our target of 3 percent sustained GDP.CHUCK TODD ASKED IT AGAIN WITH ZINGERS:Alright, I understand you wanted to get back on an economic message, but the president of the United States in the past has been a beacon of freedom of the press. Instead last night he was praising authoritarian figures in China and North Korea and encouraging boos of the American press. Does this mean it is…this American president is no longer going to be preaching about the values of freedom of the press and democracy around the world?SECRETARY STEVE MNUCHIN AVOIDS ANSWERING IT A SECOND TIME:Of course he believes in freedom of the press and democracy around the world. And he believes more importantly in protecting democracy around the world. And that’s what we should be focused on, a week of policies. And as I said before…CHUCK TODD REFRAMES THE QUESTION:You keep saying that’s what we should be focused on, then why can’t the president be focused on that, sir?SECRETARY STEVE MNUCHIN: LIESI think the president has been very focused on that.CHUCK TODD NAILS HIM FOR AN OUTRIGHT LIE:Would you call last night’s speech a focused speech on that?SECRETARY STEVE MNUCHIN SAYS THAT IF HE WASN’T THERE MAYBE IT DIDN’T HAPPENI wasn’t at the campaign rally, as you know. But again don’t don’t take these campaign rallies and focus them on that’s what it is, okay.CHUCK TODD KEEPS HIS COOL AND SETS MNUCHIN UP :So should we stop covering the campaign rallies? Do you think it’s a mistake then for us to cover them at all? That it doesn’t matter what he says? If it doesn’t matter what he says there. If we are to dismiss everything he says at a campaign rally as I think you’re trying to imply, then are you saying we should cover these things?SECRETARY STEVE MNUCHIN IS DESPERATE TO STOP TALKING ABOUT THE VULGARIAN:No, you’re putting words in my mouth. I wasn’t in any way saying you should dismiss that whatsoever. And you should obviously carry them. Because these are important moments for the president. And this is news. What I’m trying to say is, I’m focused on the policies. And the policies have created results. We’ve had more results in the last year on both foreign policy and domestic matters. So what we should be focused on and what I came to talk about were the president’s policies.CHUCK TODD GETS PERSONAL:I wanted to talk about those with you. Obviously he chose not to do that. Look, final question for you. Many people including myself raise their kids to respect the office of the presidency and the President of the United States. When he uses vulgarity to talk about individuals, what are they supposed to tell their kids?SECRETARY STEVE MNUCHIN AWKWARDLY DEFLECTS:Well again, I’ll be with my kids this morning, and I’ll be focused on them on what the president is doing to protect the United States, it’s citizens, and more importantly it’s economy.CHUCK TODD SAYS WHAT MNUCHIN IS SAYING:So he’s not a moral-- don’t worry about his values, don’t worry about him as a role model.SECRETARY STEVE MNUCHIN DENIES IT:I never said that whatsoever. So I don’t know why you’re putting these words in what I’m trying to say. Okay. So again, I am very comfortable with what we’re doing, okay? And again I think you’re trying to take this out of perspective, and implying something I’m not saying.CHUCK TODD ASKS THE KIDS QUESTION AGAIN:Fair enough, what do you…what are you supposed to say when he’s using these vulgarities, to kids?SECRETARY STEVE MNUCHIN COMES UP WITH THE FUNNY MOMENTS MEME:Again, I think you should be focused on what the policies are. He’s using these vulgarities in the context of a campaign rally and obviously there were a lot of funny moments on, on, on that rally.CHUCK TODD LETS HIS SARCASTIC SIDE OUT:Yeah, they were hilarious. Anyway, Secretary Mnuchin. I appreciate you coming on, again. I know you had to wake up extra early. That I appreciate. Thank you very much sir.SECRETARY STEVE MNUCHIN REALLY MEANS THANK YOU M-FKKR.:Thank you.
You know how easy, remember I used to say how easy it is to be presidential? But you'd all be out of here right now if I-- you'd be so bored.

Ops! White House accidentally implicates Trump in Russia probe: He ‘would be aware of any efforts’ to collude
In Daily Kos
Siebolt Frieswyck on Trump, the "Almost Untreatable Narcissistic Patient"
Excerpt:I couldn’t care less whether in 2006 Donald Trump had a sexual affair with pornographic film actress Stephanie Clifford — known professionally as Stormy Daniels — only months after his wife, Melania, gave birth to their son, Barron.Trump’s personal lawyer Michael D. Cohen says Trump has denied the affair. But even if it did occur, the relationship would have taken place years before the 2016 presidential election. Thus, it is a private matter between citizen Donald Trump and his wife and none of my business.
