Donnie’s no-good, very-bad UK visit

Looks like Donnie’s in for a rough time during his time in Merry Old Brexitlandia. I mean, just look what greeted him from the plane earlier today:

And in case you think this was just a sausagefest, it was actually part of a serious protest:

A teenager has mowed an anti-Trump message, complete with a giant penis, into the grass of his family home ahead of the US president’s UK state visit.

Ollie Nancarrow spent his weekend mowing the words “Oi Trump” into his lawn, near Hatfield Heath, in Essex.

The 18-year-old also used the mower to etch a giant polar bear, penis and the words “climate change is real” into the grass, according to the Bishop’s Stortford Independent.

The A-level student hopes that the US president will spot his creation as Air Force One approaches Stansted Airport, which is near Hatfield Heath, on Monday morning.

“Donald Trump and his denial of climate change are not welcome and I want him to be fully aware of that when he flies in to Stansted on Monday,” he said.

Oi, indeed. I sure hope he saw that and takes it to heart.

And then there’s what was projected onto the Tower of London last night:

Heh, nothing like getting your egotistical nose rubbed into that Russian hotel mattress you paid those Russian call girls to befoul.

And of course, there’s also what’s set to follow him everywhere:

And the other embarrassing thing that’s set to follow him everywhere he, uh, GOES:

And oh yeah…his own words, just following him wherever the fuck he goes:

But hey! At least Melania should be amused. That is, if all that Botox ever lets her show any sign of it.

The Rational National mocks Sebastian Gorka

The Kraken has been unleashed, and its name…is Dav Dorka:

And the best part is that not only can David Doel perfectly mimic Wile E. Pickle’s buffoonish accent and intonation, but also his sticky-up hair (albeit accidentally).

Well done, you!

Mueller to Congress: ITMFA!

He’s not saying that, of course. But he’s totally saying that, in his roundabout way:

Special counsel Robert Mueller said in a rare and remarkable public statement Wednesday his investigation could not clear President Donald Trump and that charging the President was not an option his office could consider.

In Mueller’s first public comments on the investigation since he was appointed special counsel two years ago, he emphasized that Justice Department guidelines did not allow him to charge a sitting President, and as a result his office did not determine whether the President had committed obstruction of justice.

“If we had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” Mueller said. “We did not however make a determination as to whether the President did commit a crime.”

As he announced he was closing the special counsel’s office and resigning from the Justice Department, Mueller delivered a road map of how the investigation played out and the possible role that Congress could play in holding Trump accountable.

The “possible role that Congress could play” consists, of course, of IMPEACHMENT. You know, what they started to do with Nixon before he stepped down? And what they did do to Bill Clinton, who didn’t step down?

And if you’re wondering why he passed the matter along to Congress, it’s because his own job is constitutionally limited:

Charging Trump was “not an option” because Justice Department regulations prohibit charging a sitting president with a crime, Mueller said. His office was “bound by that policy.”

“It would be unfair to potentially accuse somebody of a crime when there can be no court resolution of an actual charge,” he said.

Mueller highlighted how the “Constitution requires a process other than” the criminal justice system to hold officeholders accountable, a clear signal that his obstruction investigation into Trump may be picked up by Congress.

Mueller called the subject of his investigation “of paramount importance,” and said that obstructing an investigation “strikes at the core of the government’s effort to find the truth and hold wrongdoers accountable.”

In other words: Congress, get off your fucking duff and impeach the motherfucker already. You know, like that badass Rashida Tlaib made it clear she intended to do? Don’t leave her hanging. She can’t do it alone. Get up on your hind legs, all of you, and MAKE IT HAPPEN NOW. (Yes, even YOU, Nancy Fucking Pelosi!)
