White House counselor Kellyanne Conway threw a huge pot of verbal spaghetti against the wall in trying to justify President Donald Trump’s opposition to mail-in voting, and slipped up at the end by admitting she thinks the process would benefit former Vice President Joe Biden.
(CNN) Republican strategist Jennifer Horn was up at 1 o’clock Tuesday morning writing an op-ed when she saw it: An angry tweet mentioning her by name from the President of the United States.
Donald Trump had name-checked Horn, alongside other advisers to the anti-Trump Republican group the Lincoln Project, in a late-night rant against the organization’s latest ad criticizing the President for his response to the coronavirus pandemic. Among Trump’s targets on Twitter were George Conway, the outspoken husband of White House aide Kellyanne Conway, and several veterans of John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign.

I realized the other day that February 17, 2007 was the very first post on Hysterical Raisins. Those were the pre-Photoshop days of The Raisin, and the MS Paint image is embarrassing when I look at it today. So, kids, in honor of The Raisin’s 13th birthday (its blog mitzvah!), I thought I would recreate and update the very first poster. I couldn’t find the same image, but I did find the cover of the DVD box.

Weekend Today anchor Kristen Welker pressed Pam Bondi, a member of President Donald Trump’s impeachment defense, on her and other Trump allies’ documented links to Lev Parnas.
“So now we have multiple pictures of President Trump with Lev Parnas, his family members with Lev Parnas, his top associates – you’re even in one of the photos.It also includes an electronic calendar entry of a breakfast meeting with President Trump just days before Parnas was arrested,” Welker noted Saturday, referring to a trove of information released about Parnas, who worked heavily with Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani in Ukraine and has provided new evidence to the House about the Ukraine scandal.
Aha! How can you pose for a picture with someone and say you don’t…sonuvabitch!!!
Well, kids, I am sure that you’ve heard about the New York Times op-ed written by someone only identified as a “senior official in the Trump administration.” It’s titled:
I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration
I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.
Who can it be? A man, a woman, one person, more than one? A real “resister” or someone who thinks this might help the Rethugs in the midterm elections? Damned if I know! But it’s so much fun trying to guess.

From Politicus USA:
On Tuesday, when asked about the senatorial race in Alabama between Democrat Doug Jones and Republican Roy Moore, who’s been accused of sexual assault by numerous women, President Trump responded, “We don’t need a liberal democrat in that seat.” He added, “Roy Moore denies it— that’s all I can say.”

Another Sunday, another Trump Twitter war.
This time, President Trump, who is spending the day at his golf course in Virginia, took aim at retiring Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee.
And Corker fired back.
“It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center,” Corker wrote. “Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.”
Adult? In years only…
