A while back, Jimmy Kimmel had a Senator Bill Cassidy on his show. Bill PROMISED Jimmy that he would write a bill that would make sure that Jimmy’s son would remain able to have health insurance. See, Jimmy’s newborn was born with a heart defect and is only able to live because the Affordable Care Act — Obamacare — makes sure those with preexisting medical conditions are able to be insured.
Well, it turns out that Cassidy is a Republican and *surprise* Republicans are half-witted white supremacist LIARS. Cassidy is the Cassidy in the Graham-Cassidy Republican Healthcare poison pill.
Surprise, it wipes out coverage for people with preexisting conditions.
Jimmy had to endure some anti-science cretins who came out against *him* for calling Cassidy out for lying right to his face on national TV.
Of course, first came Cassidy himself. Then Lindsey Graham. Then Fox talking slime, Brian Kilmeade and was followed by some condescending tripe out of Chris Christie’s fat mouth (even though he, too, was even against this sick bill.
So, Jimmy sat down with his son who is alive because of Obamacare, and wrote a nice monologue response to Cassidy and Lindsey Graham.

As you’ll see in Jimmy Kimmel’s video from his show last night, below, Kimmel basically roasted to charcoal all involved in this sick, bigoted mess of a tax giveaway to the super-rich under the guise of “healthcare,” and also noted that:
Kimmel shows he very much gets it. It’s Senators Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy, along with Trump and all of the rest of the Deplorable anti-science, pro-rich daddy tax break Senators who actually back it who don’t.
Even with as much of a BAD joke as this bill is and with as ZERO support as it has, don’t assume it is going to crash and burn. It is still up to YOU to activate and make it DIE. Until we depose this criminally illegitimate poseur of a President and right the good ship America, we are going to have to FIGHT for every breath. Nazis never let up. These Nazis have an ex-KGB spy for their leader.
Flood the lines of these “swing voters” with phone calls and tell them mitts off ACA.
Start making the calls!
Alex Jones sends creepy teenage pedo-bears out into the heart of RESISTANCE profiles to accost children. Fortunately, these childrens’ parents teach them to look out for creepy stalker-men working for Nazi front-groups.
Enjoy watching one of them nut-punch one of the InfoWars minions:
You know things are going South for Trump and the Republican Party when Alex Jones spends an entire webisode of his InfoWars show railing on the Ruling Bossman White Supremacist set. He was even — next to Bannon — perhaps Trump’s most ardent supporter in media (my how FOX has fallen). But, Jones even dumps a truckload of horse crap on Trump’s shine.
What to do? Should all Republicans jump ship and sail into the sunset with David Duke? It’s such a confusing time.
Trump did something really gross. He gave an address and called it a “Presidential” Address. We’re just going to have to agree to disagree. These are addresses. Marginally. But, to call them “Presidential,” may be technically correct. But, it is just demeaning to all of us for anything associated with this disgusting excuse for a human being — let alone a man.
He has not gotten through a single sentence in two years without lying. There is NO WAY that the world can put a bit of trust or faith in ANYTHING this useful Russian idiot says.
He dodged the draft and has zero honor in his blackened, dried out soul. He has no record of public service of ANY kind, let alone serving with our military. Ordering a US soldier to put his / her life in jeopardy at his order is insulting.
And, the military — under his command — can’t swerve to avoid a mountain — his warships running into giant oil tankers and seal teams walking into live fire at his direction. And, he wants to command us into a war?
On top of all that, this RICO-drunk THIEF intends on privatizing the military to enrich one of his family, and has just announced intentions to mine the country of its wealth to pay for our warring.
This dirtbag needs to be stopped before he is eligible to be charged with WAR CRIMES. That’s where all of this is headed, you realize, don’t you?
“Y’all sickly idiot peasants don’t need to worry your coal miner brains with none of that science fake news. See, you can look right into the sun. Be like me. Make America great. For me. And, no, you don’t get to see an eye doctor, idiot. No healthcare for you.” ~Trump
Yes, it actually did happen.
I feel HORRIBLE.
I knew it was silly of me that day 14 and a half years ago as I was watching the festivities on the teevee to be longing like a lonely puppy at an echo. Longing for my being able to be in Iraq smelling the dust and smoke in the air as that huge Saddam statue finally came down. As if there was even a parallel universe somewhere where that would have been conceivable, right? But, I *wanted* to have been there like I would have gone out and made sure I had the baseball card, LOL.
After seeing what began happening today with all the calls for Confederate statues to fall like domino-shame across the swath of former Confederate Southern states, I feel even worse than Baghdad slipping by.
It’s something of moral and historic significance happening right here in MY COUNTRY. And here I am all comfy as far away from it here as could be. Missing it.
Fer effin’ shame.
The deplorably bigoted, willfully-ignorant self-haters of the now nervous Tea Party still cling to a dark hope. They still cling to the white supremacist ideal where “the browns” all serve them as the South rises again. Where life SUCKS for everyone not embarrassingly wealthy.
These tragic fools made a wish upon a star and got their baby-handed idiot king. They got their Trump.
The resistance is fighting tooth and nail to remove the cancer and heal what the idiot-King has sickened. People are screaming for a hero-figure to be like Godzilla beating down Mothra in a duel to the glorious end, But, as exciting and worthy as this path seems, it is that good intention that lines the road to Hell. There is another way, and it doesn’t call for finding a super-candidate to stand up to the serial-lying; compulsive pussy-grabbing,’ half-witted; cowardly man-toddler.
It involves finding the heroes around you and uniting behind a single, overarching ideal. Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer teamed with the Democratic party to organize a group of artists to forward an idea of hope and determination. The intent is to help unite the resistance to take back the hope and expectation that was stolen from all of us.
Here are the top-two posters, courtesy Chuck.
America was NOT made “great again. She was molested, mocked, and left naked in front of a city bus come morning. The Make America Great Again logo is a cruel joke, now. A better deal is what we all need. It’s concise and easy to relate to and recall.
What We All Need: A Better Deal. The working man and woman across the board has been either screwed or lined up along an alley wal to be screwed. Families all across the spectrum and from sea to shining sea are suffering from both Trump’s crazed cartoon leadership and the Republican Congress’ fringe, anti-American agenda. We need a better deal just to heal from years of their legislated regressive greed, self-hate, and lonely bitterness.
They say that most politics are local. Whoever *they* are, they aren’t just spitting into the wind.
in 2018, we are going to need to develop the legend not of the future King, but of the heroes around us, representing us against the Reich. Our State, Gubernatorial, Congressional, and Senatorial leaders will guide us to a representative system that actually represents all of us.
There are so many Democratic-aligned heroic figures across the country holding the flag for the resistance to Trump and the Republican party he leads who deserve your sweat tears, and laughter as you volunteer to help them help you to an intimidating body. You are going to find it so satisfying and life-affirming that you’re not going to have time or a care in the world for national politics the next time it rears its proud head.
By the time it does, we will have gathered around us those who would deliver bills worthy of our pride in our President signing into Law.
We will draw to us a legislative body that admonishes the toxic ideology of the fringe right.
A body politic that admonishes state-sponsored christo-sharia occultism.
A body politic that admonishes the Heritage Foundation eat-the-poor neocon chickenhawk drum beating.
When we flip the house and maybe, like 2006, the Senate with it, we can coalesce around a national leader in earnest. It’s been so long since we had that, I doubt most even remember what it was like.
Until then, the only thing any of us need to worry about is taking back or defending our states!!
I like the idea of a ranked soldier keeping his / her rank after un-deployment and rest.
I like calling him President Obama. He’ll always be President.
But, do I really? Only kind of. Rachel Maddow had a guest on today. She called him “Senator” Gordon Humphrey. I thought that out of a hundred Senators, I’d still be smart like a 98% A-student if there were just 2 I didn’t remember. But, really, eff that. I know every dang one, at least by name.
Well, turns out I’m not “There are 2 Senators I don’t know” dumb. Gordon WAS a senator. A long time ago. Like pushing 30 years ago was Senator. Oddly, this gets me to the actual reason I wrote this story: the Zombie of a long-retired Republican senator is haunting us with a press junket. And, weirder, Rachel Maddow had him on her show.
Pardon my taking the piss out of yer man, but aside from my flickin’ his old nuts, that’s an actual poster he uses. For what, not entirely sure. He’s too old to run for any office. Trump is only 71, and I don’t think ANYONE doubts the dumb in risking being a peasant under a mad king. A Dementia-hollowed ASSHOLE. Like Trump. This guy is just too gravity-whittled for service, anymore.
What I’m thinking is that his agent sees a longing for the days before the Tea Party. Before the Freedom Caucus made a buy-in Swamp army of them. With the INSANE militancy of the Presidency, a longing for days even before Neoconservatism. This guy Humphrey represents just that.
He could never be held up as an ideological echo of a hero any lost culture pines to re-live. The people have shown themselves for who they are to the core, and, you can’t un-shoot yourself in your idiot foot. Only the sage monks of electoral politics and the old generals of our reeling media structure keep the memory alive at all. NBC wants to conspire in stopping the Republican party from bleeding out.
Too late for miracles, old chap.
And, I’m not all about helping save the Republican corpse. Let it rot.
I hear that sweet little Lindsey Graham has an amendment to the super-secret Nazi “Kill the black guy’s healthcare law” bill ready to shiny-penny it past his naive base. He’s rumored to be ready to offer free bags of Skittles for all the Rainbows in his district if they’ll be cool with losing their healthcare.
Skittles are expensive, but he has to placate the gay following Trump’s attack on the “T” from the mighty LGBT who are / were serving in the US military.
I’m being sarcastic and just plain silly, but there’s nothing of any serious merit to ANYTHING the Nazis are trying to shove up our tailpipes with this aggravated rape of a bill.
I heard he just called the latest “skinny bill” his Reich has proposed as a fraud. A fraud he would go ahead and vote for. As long as the NOBLE congress pinkie swears they’ll create an extra-legislative council of some sort to not pass it and work on a brand new one, or some stupid BS.
