When will Monty Python sue for misappropriation?

Remember, the GOP is fine with Trump’s actions. as opposed to most thinking Americans.

There may still be time to register people to vote in your state. Then get to the polls, dammit!

It’s not that, it’s that he has a secret naughty gal on the side (who’s a dead ringer for Ivanka) and she’s refusing to service him until he gives her a raise of $500 a pop.

The White House seems to have changed the word “thinking” to “thanking” in an official transcript of President Donald Trump’s freewheeling Monday press conference, blunting the insult the President aimed at ABC’s Cecilia Vega.

The official White House transcript from President Trump’s immigration meeting on Tuesday excluded a line from Mr. Trump in which he appears to agree to a clean bill to protect so-called "Dreamers."

According to The Washington Post, the official transcript of the meeting, however, excluded that line. A White House official told the Post that the omission was not intentional.

An updated transcript released Wednesday morning contained the exchange.


Perhaps, as former director of the Office of Government Ethics Walter Shaub suggested, White House staff left out the comment that so enraged the far-right in the hopes that “no one would notice.” The problem, of course, is that the meeting was televised—and soon everyone noticed.


Mother Jones’ Kevin Drum had a good piece a while back, explaining, “Transcripts are not supposed to be ‘revised’ after the fact. Official White House transcripts record exactly what the person said, regardless of ‘what they meant to say.’”


Vladimir Putin said he would be willing to give Congress the records from President Trump’s Oval Office meeting last week with Russian Foreign Secretary Sergey Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, if the White House approves, according to multiple media reports.

I’ll be honest, when i heard this clip on Rachel Maddow last night, i did think he said Thank. But, i wasn’t really paying close attention

Ha ha now they’ve changed it back. Maybe they got embarrassed, maybe it’s like seven years in prison to play around with official gummint records, but either way this stuff is just nuts. If you had a township municipal staff of five people who carried on this way it would be a huge scandal. But this is the White House and it’s just part of the daily news chatter. Remarkable in that it’s not remarkable.
