Trump Team Floats the Idea of Stone Cold Steve Austin for Secretary of the State, "Sources Say"

Okay, not really, but hey...  it doesn't sound a whole lot different than much of the media's spitballing in hopes of a catchy title.   BRING ON THE CLICK BAIT!

Yes, the same media that got the election so horribly wrong and made steak night with the fam sound like World War III is now going  hog wild by throwing names around at every cabinet position imaginable.   Rudy Gulliani, Nicki Haley, John Bolton, Mitt Romney, just some of them so far, courtesy of "inside sources".

I can't help but picture the media throwing darts at a list of random Republican names & every cabinet post left to fill...

"Dr Ben Carson...  for...  DEPT OF AG?  Shoot... I was aiming for Health & Human Services!"

On top of it they're already giving his administration bad press because they aren't choosing fast enough, even comparing the timeliness of his cabinet appointees to those of Barack Obama's back in 2008.   Anybody that payed attention to the 30-some WikiLeaks (clearly, not the media however) can tell you that's a bad comparison to bring up, especially if they're a liberal (which they clearly are):

...and then this:

In case you've been too busy focusing on Play-Doh sculptures in your safe space, what that basically shows is CitiBank almost picking Obama's cabinet positions in its entirety clear back in the October of 2008, prior to his first election as President.   Even that didn't happen within the first couple weeks, soooo... try not to sound so upset that Trump hasn't rushed out a list on day 1 and is instead vetting people with the help of Mike Pence.   You're only discrediting yourselves even further when you do.

Kubos to Axelrod:

 

When the media isn't taking time out of their busy day to guess tomorrow's story about Trump's cabinety, they fill in the gaps with stories about "peaceful" protests (/riots) by people angry about Trump, or overly-sensitive basketcases that need to fill their day with quiet time, therapy dogs, crayon drawings and public cry-ins.... you know, cuz, Trump, or something.   

In two weeks time we've gone from talking about Trump grabbing people by the pussies to pussies grabbing tissues over Trump.    In that same time Clinton supporters have ditched the whole "Love Trumps Hate" & "When they go low, we go high" to...  "Screw it, let's kill him!"

The left is quickly turning into an even bigger laughing stock than they were and seem totally disconnected from the current state of affairs, as if an election 10 days ago didn't spell it out for them.  Maybe it's hard to see the reality of the situation when they'rr too busy being angry, or sad, or scared, or whatever weakened, frail position they prefer to portray their victimization as.  

All I can say is...  1 PotUS, 54 Senate seats, 247 House seats and 31 Governors later...  I really don't care what you want to mope about.   Whatever.  Cry all you want/need to.   At the end of the day the GOP still won this one.   Take your own advice and deal with it in whatever way works best for you...  and try to ignore us snickering over here as we look on.

If you think this is bad:  Wait until January 20th, 2017

If you think that'll be bad:   Wait until November 6th, 2018

...you'll likely lose even more control that day, and it'll be fun too.

Thanks Skinny..

Anyone see the Crypt Keeper formally known as Fat Hilda yesterday? WOW... She looked like she just come off a week long bender. The bags under the eyes. Absent the blue contacts, we got her dead brown eyes... Greasy hair..Hey; Academy Award to the make-up person while Hilda was running for POTUS. You're a fu*king magician...

November 18, 2016 at 05:50 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

The leftie media are accidentally the most transparent of people. They lost the election (totally in bed with The Old Bag) so now it's on to savaging any prospective Trump nominees. Their blind and irrational agenda could be termed "pathological."

November 18, 2016 at 07:04 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Actually, I'm rather looking forward to a media meltdown if Cruz, Giuliani, Gowdy, Clark, etc. get nominated. Should be some great entertainment.

November 18, 2016 at 07:36 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

OK, idiot media -- begin bashing Jeff Sessions in 3-2-1....................

November 18, 2016 at 09:43 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

With Trump's appointments you're already seeing a brownish semi-viscous mass starting to slide down liberals legs...This is just too good...

November 18, 2016 at 10:23 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

All the MSM stories have the same line. You know what they call it when 'news' is identical? Propaganda. After January, the same data on anything will be doomsday scenarios.

November 18, 2016 at 13:16 | Unregistered Commentergriswold3

Three picks in to the Trump Admin. and the demwits are beside themselves with hysteria that no minorities or gays have been chosen...There will be no Erik Holder's or Loretta Lynch's in a Trump Admin. that are picked regardless of their competence because they fill an affirmative action slot..

November 18, 2016 at 13:34 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Can I say again how happy I am that Harry 'Crusty the Clown' Reid is leaving?
I think the Trump can deal with Schumer. Just hope he doesn't give away the farm.

November 18, 2016 at 14:40 | Unregistered Commentergriswold3

So 'Princess High Cheeks of the Harvard Tribe' wants to explore reported past racial comments by Sen. Sessions. Let's make it a two-fer and investigate those who co-op American Indian identities for monetary or hiring purposes? Maybe set what percentage of your DNA allows you to claim being and Indian for employment. Those who got hired at Harvard being 1/64th Indian may be nervous..Sounds fair...

November 19, 2016 at 10:34 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

How! Me thinkum she not happy with Trump. No rid of him until many moons go by. Ugh.

The preceding gibberish represents her degree of respect for the native American culture which she tried to steal and about which she lied in order to falsify her bio. In other words, her opinion, about anything, is worthless.

I think I'll go see "Hamilton" and rudely lecture the cast.

November 20, 2016 at 09:22 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Red, the political party that embraces trigger warnings and micro-aggressions over 'longing looks at females by men' find booing the VP elect as he arrived for Hamilaton then having the cast stop the play to lecture him I.e culturally harass him ok. The left has no problem with their rude actions. They love to lecture other people on manners and culture.

November 20, 2016 at 15:50 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Pence's response was pure class. He praised the play, said he wasn't offended, and told his family, "That’s what freedom sounds like.”

The more I see of Pence, the better I like him.

November 20, 2016 at 17:03 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

OK, Winston. Your disappointment is duly noted. You can stop pouting now.

Get back here and post some of your crap, explaining what happened and that it was all because we're misogynistic racist homophobic rednecks.

Actually, we want to see you so we'll know what you're up to. Your silence only makes us suspicious.

"Rob Schneider
✔ @RobSchneider

I haven't seen the Democrats this mad since we freed the slaves!"

One of the Top 5 Tweets I've read since the election... Libs heads are exploding all over the internet after this came out..

November 21, 2016 at 07:57 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Seems like Rob Schneider is one of the few Hollywood people who actually know history. Most of the rest get their "education" from faux news sites like the Clinton News Network, The New York Lying Times, Huff-'n-Puff Post, etc.

November 21, 2016 at 11:32 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Man oh man, I have never seen such a ridiculous display of ignorance as that being put on by the anti-Electoral College screamers. These people are childish and churlish sore losers, of course. But beyond that, they have no idea why the Electoral College exists, nor do they care to educate themselves. They might as well wear signs saying, "We're loud, we're proud, and we're IN YOUR FACE WITH OUR IGNORANCE!"

November 21, 2016 at 13:24 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Oops Seems the Actor in 'Hamilton' has revealed himself to be a bigoted misogynist.
ie In a March 2012 tweet, Dixon wrote, “St. Patty’s day weekend is like Christmas for black dudes who like white chicks. Happy holidays boys.”
plenty more evidence not worth repeating

Bill jumping around. Chelsea trying to get her arms around Fat Hilda for a very frosty hug from the Dragon Lady... THEN later on the bitter, salty tears of defeat. I want a video per CNN reports of Fat Hilda launching into a F-bomb tirade to campaign staff at 1 a.m. when she was hammered and realized she had lost...

Judging by the rapidly worsening post-election Trump Derangement Syndrome exhibited by The New York Times, I wonder if Winnie is running their editorial department.

It's as if the Times' prior lies and distortions were not quite enough to prove the paper's worthlessness. Now they seem to be doubling down on the stupid, but why? To remove all doubt that the paper is a fake news operation? They needn't worry; we know.

November 23, 2016 at 08:39 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

That horrible white power racist and woman-abusing misogynist Donald Trump just nominated Nikki Haley as ambassador to the UN. It will be very interesting to see how CNN, MSNBC, WAPO, and The New York Times try to spin this negatively. Because they will. They can't help themselves.

November 23, 2016 at 09:44 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

"Princess High Cheeks of the Harvard Tribe" is a mental case. She's sending the GAO a letter asking them to investigate the 'chaotic' and 'Trump transition in disarray.' This may be a first. Warren is so bitter with bile in her mouth that she is asking for an investigation of the transition of the winner only 15 days after the election. Warren is a nut job.. Certified f**king nut job.

November 23, 2016 at 12:28 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Dems are in hysteria mode as Jan. 20th gets closer and now the message is 'voter fraud' cost them the election. Remember when R's said hey let's get I.D's to verify who is voting so the election process is accurate and honest? Now the dems want Presidential re-counts. Mathematical analysis of voting patterns to see where potential anomalies lie and to interview/interrogate Trump voters to see if any intimidation was displayed by them around the polls... LOL... I've never enjoyed a post-election so much...The Hollywood left is shitting themselves...Seth McFarlane (Family Guy) is over the cliff. I guess that $50k a couple fundraiser he hosted for Fat-Drunk Hilda doesn't look so smart now...

November 23, 2016 at 13:44 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

That eveeeel woman-hating misogynist Donald Trump has just named Betsy DeVos to the post of Secretary of Education. How dare he! The nerve of the guy, nominating women, blacks, and other minorities to top positions. He must be stopped! This ruins the entire narrative of the Leftie Media Complex.

As America prepares for the wonderful holiday of Thanksgiving the joyless drones at the DNC and Democratic Congressional Committee have sent out an email with a PDF. titled "How to Win Political Arguments With Your Republican Relatives." And demwits wonder why their a shrinking party relegated to the coasts? My suggestion; enjoy the holiday and what it stands for, family, friends and to everyone's good health. If a lib does try to start and argument tell them 'to STFU; it's Thanksgiving.'

November 24, 2016 at 06:02 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

How does a Democrat try to win an argument? By lying, of course.

We're not talking politics at our house today. Tom has it right.

November 24, 2016 at 07:21 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Oh' Lordy the NYT hates DeVos for Secretary of Education which tells me she'll be awesome. Something about her policy of children first, teachers unions second has the left, unions, NYT (I know redundant). losing their sh*t... Maybe there's hope for little Johnny in second grade that he'll be taught more of the three R's and less about anal sex between men....

So Fidel is taking a dirt nap... Good riddance you POS. The censorship going on at major newspaper sites where deletion of comments on Castro and the love-letter articles about Castro is sickening. Read the L.A. Times on-line. Hey that Castro really was something for education and healthcare! The article is a little light on the tens of thousands of political prisoners murdered by Castro and the 60 year struggle by Cubans to get out of that hell-hole. Jesus the sycophant left-wing media loved that thug Castro. Well at least the ones not thrown in his prisons..

November 26, 2016 at 06:23 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Enjoy hell, Castro.

And all you idiots offering praise to Castro need to wake the hell up.

November 26, 2016 at 09:14 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Obama said "history will judge Castro." Well we know tens of thousands of political prisoners were killed under Castro. Obama bring that up? Nah.. Is there a Memory Candle burning in the Obama WH residence for Castro? Unbelievable. My guess Obama flies to Cuba to pay his 'respects.'

November 26, 2016 at 13:05 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Obama WH "let history be the final judge of Hitler."'

Rubio took a well aimed Twitter shot at President Commie-lover:

"President Obama issued a pathetic statement on death of dictator #FidelCastro with no mention of thousands he killed & imprisoned. #Cuba"

I think I know why Winnie isn't here, annoying everyone. He's probably heading up the Fabulous Jill Stein Moneygrubbing Recount Scam. Or plotting how to divvy up the excess millions they've bilked from gullible Not My President imbeciles.

Whoa.... Drudge Report.. Back that camera up the next time a picture of Fat Hilda is on your page. Holy Sh*t, Fat Hilda without the blue contacts and those yellow teeth!! Is she a smoker? A non-photo shopped Fat Hilda ain't pretty...

I swear there is nothing like the death of a Communist dictator to flush out the 'Useful Idiots" in the U.S. Head Useful Idiot Obama is just itching to go to Cuba. We all know it. Come on Barry; do it. Cement your place in the "Useful Idiot Hall of Fame..."

Jill Stein claims she is pushing for a recount because she so dearly values free and honest elections. She also says she opposes the death penalty. So naturally she adores Fidel Castro, mass murderer and master of fixed elections.

Jill is a lunatic.

So a Somali man with a hatchet and his car attacked Americans in praise of Allah. This information just blew up the pre-done 'white male with a gun' narrative that the editors at HuffPo and every other left-wing site was ready to go with..

November 28, 2016 at 16:02 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Tim Kaine wrote ' deeply saddened by senseless gun violence' referring to the violence by the armed cops against the innocent Somali armed only with a machete and automobile.

November 28, 2016 at 18:46 | Unregistered Commentergriswold3

It's a mystery to the AP, NBC and CNN what the motive was for the Somali attacker at Ohio St. I guess we'll never know....

November 29, 2016 at 05:33 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Breathless headline about the Muslim knife attack, from the corrupt and incompetent media: SCHOOL SHOOTING

And yet, the media goons still wonder why they are not trusted.

Just need to go to OSU Police twitter to see the insanity.
White cop kills Black Somali. (One of the victims has died. Idiots)
I appreciate the accuracy of the shot. Double tap.

My predication; this whole Ohio St. tragedy will be down the MSM memory hole in 24 hours. Too many negatives to the on-going MSM narrative for them to care about or promote. I'm sure there's a noose on a minority's dorm room door knob or accusation of rape against a college fraternity to spend weeks on that will re-direct their attention shortly.
