Mike Pence continued his attempt to cover up for Donald Trump’s refusal to directly rebuke racial terrorism committed in his name, but when challenged by a reporter on his claim that Trump had forcefully spoken out, he instead complained about “many in the media.”
Trump has refused to call out the white supremacists and Nazis who rioted in Charlottesville, Virginia, and who killed a young woman. Instead he referred to “many sides” being involved in the case.
Maybe instead of complaining about “many in the media,” Pence should complain about Nazis and alt-right white supremacists like Sebastian Gorka, Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller, et al who swarm all over the West Wing.

From the Mirror:
Before his election, Donald Trump repeatedly pledged to “make America great again”, laying out an ambitious plan for his first 100 days.
His “contract with the voter” listed 28 promises he would deliver.
Well, the 100 days are up today and so far he has lived down to expectations by failing to deliver on a single major issue.
In the run-up to the milestone day, he moaned: “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”
But one thing the US President has managed is to achieve more mayhem and confusion than any of his 44 predecessors.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer may have a penchant for putting his foot in his mouth (for example, what he has said about the Holocaust), but a new report suggests President Donald Trump won’t fire him because the man gets great ratings.
From The Atlantic:
There’s no good time to make a Hitler comparison, but deploying one in the midst of Passover to justify voluntary airstrikes is an especially unwise choice, as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer realized, to his chagrin, Tuesday afternoon.
Spicer was fielding questions about the Trump administration’s confusing and diffuse strategy toward Syria when he was asked why the White House believed that Russian President Vladimir Putin would break with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad at this moment.
“You look, we didn’t use chemical weapons in World War II. You had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons,” Spicer said.
How much you wanna bet that foot is not kosher for Passover?
Steve Bannon. Do I need to say more? Hell, no! Because I can sing instead!!
To the tune of If I Only Had a Brain by Harold Arlen (music) and E.Y. Harburg (lyrics):
🎼 If my lips move, then I’m lyin’
Or I’m Holocaust denyin’,
Don’t care if that’s profane,
Because hour by hour,
I’m amassing so much power,
All of D.C.’s my domain.♫
From The Boston Globe:
PHOENIX—John McCain is refusing to renounce the endorsement of a prominent Texas televangelist who Democrats say peddles anti-Catholic and other intolerant speech.
Instead, the Republican presidential candidate issued a statement Friday afternoon saying he had unspecified disagreements with the San Antonio megachurch leader, John Hagee. Hagee endorsed him at a news conference Wednesday in San Antonio.
“However, in no way did I intend for his endorsement to suggest that I in turn agree with all of Pastor Hagee’s views, which I obviously do not,” McCain said in the statement.
His campaign issued the statement after two days of criticism from the Democratic National Committee, the Catholic League and Catholics United.
(Please read the name of the movie with as much annoyance as possible, as in–Oy!! Constantly with the cross! Enough already!)
