Trump is unworthy to preside over a ceremony to hang President Obama’s portrait in the WH. When President Biden presides over that ceremony I hope all of the former Presidents sans Trump will be there. It will be a restorative act. It will be a reassertion of dignity and decency - Steve Schmidt

The New White House Press Secretary Has "Word Salad" Down Pat
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) that prayer played an important role in the 2016 election.
"I think prayer made a difference in this election," McEnany, who became press secretary at the beginning of April, told CBN's David Brody. "And that's not to say I think God put, not to say that He puts a certain political party in a certain place at a time, but I do believe certain people are meant to be in positions at a certain moment. I do believe that President Trump is the person meant for this moment, and I think prayer made a lot of difference in the election."

Email 📬
Subject: JFK

Hi Lisa,
Thank you for pointing out how the TSA was not screening people way back in Feb. at JFK & most airports with international flights. The virus was given an easy entrance from Europe thru JFK. I live nearby and saw this coming. 
Thank you for having a sense of humor and a sense of the ugly truth.
Stay safe as you are needed in these dark days.
Karen in Jersey (no, not that Karen)


Hi Karen, not THAT Karen,
You are very welcome. My blog is what kept me sane all these years but with trump at the wheel, I question my sanity or even believing anything he says or the republicans. They are no longer the pro-life party in any form. Once George W. Bush normalized torture I knew it was a matter of money and time before they'd throw grandma under the bus!





When this is over, we all agree we're gonna subtract a year from our age, right? - Nick Jack Pappas

'We've been muzzled': CDC sources say White House putting politics ahead of science

In the early weeks of the US coronavirus outbreak, staff members in the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had tracked a growing number of transmissions in Europe and elsewhere, and proposed a global advisory that would alert flyers to the dangers of air travel.
But about a week passed before the alert was issued publicly -- crucial time lost when about 66,000 European travelers were streaming into American airports every day.

Another White House Tradition Bites The Dust
For decades, it’s been a gesture of the peaceful transition of power from president to president, regardless of party politics. But, according to a report from NBC News, President Trump will not be unveiling his predecessor Barack Obama’s official White House portrait. For 40 years, a first-term president has hosted his immediate predecessor in the East Room for the first public showing of the portrait of the former president.
