LIVE VIDEO: White House Press Briefing

Law & Crime reports:

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will meet the press corps in a briefing set for 1:15 p.m. ET. What will be on today’s docket? As always, the looming specter of Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his Russia investigation will take center stage, especially in light of the newly discovered GOP memo that seems to suggest some sort of potential shuffling in the ranks of the DOJ. There’s also that whole New York Times bombshell story from last week that alleged President Donald Trump had ordered Mueller to be fired back in June.

What are the odds Sanders will be able to resist attacking the Grammy Awards?

  • The_Wretched

    She’ll open with the Clinton / Grammy awards. The only question is what adjectives she’ll use.

    • Smokey

      But they don’t talk about Hillary, right?

    • kanehau

      Look…

      • The_Wretched

        Trump’s fav is “corrupt hillary”. Sarah tends to use more the language of disgust. “it’s sick and disgusting what happened on the Grammys. Noone let alone national political figures should be using award shows for politics.”

  • Nope.
    just no.
    Fuck no.
    And goodbye.
    No.

  • Joe in PA
    • Rambie

      But we still need watch long enough to see who guesses the correct color of Sarah’s dress today.

      • Joe in PA

        “Dress”? You are being way too kind.

        • Rambie

          It’s the, “What color of ugly will she wear?” contest

  • JWC

    Ah They are BAAAACK The tired lyin Sack of shit should be down on her “look” she is always a tad nicer after a few days off

  • Bluto

  • Gustav2

    Please wake me from my post lunch nap if she stops lying

  • Paula

    OMFG! That picture! Is that one of the bodies they found in Toronto?

    • KCMC

      this image, only the soul is dead.

    • Smokey

      Yet they contriv’d to steal the Basil-pot,
      And to examine it in secret place:
      The thing was vile with green and livid spot,
      And yet they knew it was Lorenzo’s face:
      The guerdon of their murder they had got,
      And so left Florence in a moment’s space,
      Never to turn again.—Away they went,
      With blood upon their heads, to banishment.

    • Rambie

      I don’t think that’s enough material to cover her up

      • The_Wretched

        She usually only goes to above the knee for her skirts.

      • The_Wretched

        I’m sure he’s entitled to the leave or it wouldn’t have happened. And it just for a month or so. Calm down.

      • mpatreyu

        Yep! Anything to piss you off DT jr.

      • JCF

        This pissant grifter from the Grifting family of the Grift Organization has the GALL to talk about be “stuck paying” for a man who’s dedicated his life (some under personal danger, no doubt) to his country. FUCK OFF!!!!

        Junior, the PARTAY that will be held when you’re led to the penintentiary!!!!

      • Paula

        This statement pisses me off so much. He has earned his money. Not like don jr that was born into it.

      • Joe in PA

        “Despite all this” what? You’re the one facing a prison sentence putz.

      • Menergy

        Ah, don’t go there, Donny boy…..

    • joe ho

      Horrible implications for US that Republicans forced out Deputy Director of FBI in slanderous conspiracy (after firing Director) in order to protect POTUS from investigation into his campaign’s ties to Russia & ongoing/unchecked cyber-attack

    • billbear1961

      As the rule of law sinks in the quicksand, the American “free” press wonders if Al Capone will pass for somewhat sane and deliver a “good” SOTU speech. If so, ALL his crimes and outrages to date are FORGIVEN!!!!

      In a FUCKING pig’s eye.

    • safari

      So, McCabe said no to firing Comey or Rosenstein?

      • The_Wretched

        Wray is the FBI director. So presumptively would be asked first.

        • safari

          Ah, deputy director.

          My understanding is he is the one who primarily requests the wiretappings.

  • KCMC
  • Treant

    No, thanks. I’ve had posters intentionally misconstrue and lie about what I’ve said in the last 24 hours. I don’t need to hear this one bleat lies at me as well.

    • Tread

      Ha. I got shamed on FB for saying that Joel Taylor’s “friends” were irresponsible assholes for getting him fucked up to the point of having to carry him back to his cabin, and then leaving him there alone. The person doing the shaming is a known partier in said drugs and “knows” the people who were with him. He claimed he took a sleeping pill that caused him to pass out and vomit in his sleep. I called bullshit and now he’s all huffy at me, saying I don’t know “the facts.”

      • Treant

        They did? That is irresponsible; you never leave an inebriated person alone. If you absolutely must do so and medical care can’t be summoned (it could have been in this case), at least turn him over so he’s face down and less likely to choke on his own vomit.

        Even if your “friend” were right, leaving him alone to take said sleeping pill when you know he was not in his right mine is irresponsible.

        For fuck’s sake, call the doctor.

    • Reality.Bites

      I’ve always found it fascinating that when people want to argue with you online, where there’s nothing easier than quoting you accurately, how many insist on rewriting what you said to the position they would prefer to rebut.

      • Treant

        Precisely. One yesterday took it upon herself to flat out lie and say I said something I’ve never even thought. Which was after rewriting something else to say what I didn’t say. And people wonder why I just pull out the “fuck you” so often. That usually gets through.

        SoCalGal20 got plenty of upticks and it fed her victim mentality, so I presume she’s happy with it. Fuck ‘er.

  • Ninja0980

    I’m sure she’ll push the lie that Nikki Halley is whom Micheal Wolff was referring to in his Fire and Fury book when there is no mention of it.

  • JCF

    BREAKING: Andrew McCabe resigning. Gotta bad feeling about this…

    • safari

      Just part of Donald’s State of the Union unification reset and buffet /s

  • Ninja0980

    Should be noted McCabe isn’t officially retiring from the FBI until March, when he can get his pension and everything else.

    • whollyfool

      And decided not to stick it out till then.

  • TimCA

    I remember Rachel Maddow bringing up that the GOP seems to be systematically smearing each individual with whom James Comey contemporaneously documented Trump’s attempt to obstruct the FBI’s investigation. Andrew McCabe is one of those people.

    • Joe in PA

      Yup, McCabe is just one in the list. Remember when Comey testified that soon after his trump “visit” he recalled said visit with “top officials” at FBI. I’m sure Rachel will recap it all tonight. 🙁

    • billbear1961

      This IS big news, but the corporate media–cable news, anyway, except for Maddow–doesn’t seem interested, Tim.

      Trump Launched Campaign to Discredit FBI Witnesses

      President Trump “pressed senior aides last June to devise and carry out a campaign to discredit senior FBI officials after learning that those specific employees were likely to be witnesses against him as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation,” Foreign Policy reports.

      “In testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee on June 8, recently fired FBI Director James Comey disclosed that he spoke contemporaneously with other senior bureau officials about potentially improper efforts by the president to curtail the FBI’s investigation of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.”

      https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/01/26/mueller-trump-obstruction-of-justice-russia-216532

      More interference–more obstruction–slandering witnesses in an investigation to try to destroy their credibility!

      Where is MOST of cable news on this story?!

      And NOW McCabe is out!

      • It Takes a Village, People

        Obstruction of Justice. Does anyone care?

  • whollyfool
    • Tread

      Too fucking little, too fucking late. Fuck you, Toobin.

      • whollyfool

        That sums it up pretty well…

    • Reality.Bites

      We’ll save you a seat next to that gay Mormon scum.

    • The_Wretched

      good and all but the media is still largely pro-Trump or ‘both sides’ on every single issue and the Sunday AM political shows are still republican only. Some small number of defectors makes no difference.

      • whollyfool

        I’m hoping other broadcasters will take notice. But I’m not betting a lot of money on it…

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    The McCabe news will cause her to be late.

    ” Look, I am not going to get into a back and forth with you about why he stepped down today. “

    • Bluto

      Please, a Snickers bar will cause her to be late.

      • Gianni

        Especially if she can smell it but not find it.

  • billbear1961

    FORCED to step down–bloody OUTRAGEOUS!

    • safari

      Forced to step down?

    • mpatreyu

      By who?

      • billbear1961

        They haven’t said–YET.

    • sfjohn

      more obstruction

      • billbear1961

        YES!

    • The_Wretched

      The elephant in the room is obstruction. Was he forced out over the TRUMPRUSSIA?

      • safari

        What else could it be?

        • The_Wretched

          I don’t know but McCabe is in a position to know about the rest of the criminal acts of the orangeshitgibbon.

    • billbear1961

      THIS is a PURGE–and I thought the Director said he would RESIGN rather than let this happen!

    • JWC

      Red flags .Rachel mentioned this Lets see who gains what

    • Treant

      You mean “Farced to step down.”

      • billbear1961

        This goddamned country is a FARCE.

        • Joe in PA

          Play some Vivaldi for us dear Bear.

          • billbear1961

            Will ANYONE defend this democracy and its RULE OF LAW?!

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jCKbHDN5os

          • Treant

            I like Vivaldi. It’s so mathematical.

          • Christopher

            Vivaldi was the first record (think giant black CD with grooves) I ever bought with my very own money.

            I was a weird kid, but I listened to it for ages!

          • Treant

            Re…cord…what’s that, Daddy? Did you just push the record button on your phone?

            Yes, I remember vinyl. I don’t really miss it, but I do remember it.

          • Christopher

            While not a vinyl purist, I understand when people say they prefer vinyl because it sounds more authentic. In this day where autotune is a standard, they may have a point.

          • Treant

            It really does seem to be, due to the sampling density of audio files. You can’t ever reach the pure analog sounds no matter how many samples per second you take (although eventually it just stops mattering as the ear can’t hear it).

            8 bit’s fine. 16 bit is very good. I can’t tell either from the original. Musicians and people with incredible ears probably can; mine are middle-aged average.

            http://www.audiocheck.net/blindtests_16vs8bit.php

            You can test yourself if you want. On the blind test, my confidence level never goes past sixty percent on a decent number of tests. Effectively, I can’t tell the difference.

          • Joe in PA

            Beautiful, thank you.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      If so, it will only speed things up nicely.

      • safari

        Or things have sped up nicely

      • billbear1961

        I hope so–THIS is OBSTRUCTION.

    • safari

      If he was going to leave in a month or two anyway but was forced to resign now, something is going down soon.

      • billbear1961

        Such as?

        • safari

          Whatever it is, it was enough that throwing more fuel on the dumpster fire was preferable to keeping him on

          • billbear1961

            This is like Comey, all over again!

            SOMEONE had better defend the rule of law, FINALLY!!

        • Ragnar Lothbrok

            Oh good! I’ve been holding my breath and am running out of air.

          • The_Wretched

            Good, it’ll be picked apart.

      • mpatreyu

        I realize the headlines are all dramatic but I’m not sure that this is as big a deal as they make it out to be. An announcement was expected. This might just be it. He is using vacation time to pad between now and the official retirement date. (I should change my username to callmepollyana

        • billbear1961

          Perhaps he has done this to throw a few grenades into the dumpster fire.

            Could be. Anything like this is going to look bad for the rethugs and TeeRump

        • Reality.Bites

          A lot of the time I find just using a general term will find the weirdest stuff I never anticipate. Bluto’s post could be the result of something as simple as “chicken watching porn” and hoping something would turn up.

          The other day I posted two raw, plucked chickens posed as if having sex. My search was just “chickens having sex” and I expected to find actual live chickens mating.

          Bluto, of course, undoubtedly just filmed that live in his own yard.

      • Joe in PA

        OMG Picky is into necrophilia? Ewww.
