Trump Hails “Great American Hero” Devin Nunes

Raw Story reports:

President Donald Trump on Monday praised Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) as a “Great American Hero” for his role in releasing a controversial memo that critics have assailed for providing a misleading picture of the FBI’s actions in 2016.

Nunes on Friday released a memo that aimed to undercut the FBI’s role in investigating President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, as it purported to show alleged surveillance abuses related to Carter Page, a former Trump foreign policy adviser who had once openly boasted about his connections to the Kremlin.

    Oh come on !! Integrity !?!
    LOL they were calling him Newman on Morning Joe lol

  • Tomcat

    Give us a break you demented old shit for brains.

  • bkmn

    Nope, no conspiracy here, none at all.

    • I don’t know what bothers me more: the corruption, or the laziness.

  • Chuck in NYC

    “Great American Hero” — What was that song from “The Greatest American Hero”?
    “Believe it or not”?

    I choose not to believe it.

  • GayOldLady

    Meanwhile, back at his Congressional Office Devin Nunes is thinking: “Oh fuck, I’m going to prison”

    • GayOldLady

      And as he’s walking the halls of Congress Devin Nunes is thinking: “Oh fuck, I’m going to prison”

      • Todd20036

        And he’s also probably thinking, “Oh shit, the shitgibbon called me a hero.”

      • Joseph Miceli

        I think that everyone that comes within 10 feet of Nunes should whisper loudly so that he overhears… “Oh fuck he’s going to prison.” He’ll either confess or end up in the looney bin.

        • GayOldLady

          His deer in the headlights look betrays his confident boasting. He’s fighting for his very life as I type and he knows it. He’s basically finished in politics and is likely to be charged with knowingly working to impede a Federal investigation or as it’s better known, Obstruction of Justice. I hope he rots in prison for what he’s done to this country.

          • Joseph Miceli

            Ah, that sent me to that warm place inside for a moment. Thank you. Let’s hope Nunes has LOTS of company! 🙂

          • TK

            Yes indeed! I’m hoping for the same – along with many others!

        • teeveedub

          I like the way you think.

    • ted-

      OH, he so needs to.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Remember how we thought Bush totally sucked ?

    This is beyond embarrassing. I can’t find the right word for this disaster.

    • Mark Née Fuzz

      It’s one great big covfefe.

  • Rex

    “Great American Hero?”
    I was thinking “40 year-old Virgin.”

    • CanuckDon

      This fucking corrupt bastard has a wife and three children.

      • clay

        Well, SHE has three children, but if they were married, there was probably no paternity testing.

      • David Walker

        It’s nice to have friends.

    • It Takes a Village, People

      He’s not so bad looking. The personality,however, is a deal-breaker.

    Donald J Trump, a man of tremendous girth….

  • Bad Tom

    Trump, you like Nunes because he’s carrying your Traitor Water.
    Otherwise he’d be Fake News.

  • another_steve

    I wonder what dirt Trump and the White House have on Nunes.

    What’s keeping him in line.

  • Jerry Kott

    The longer this goes on, the deeper the hole gets and the longer it will take to get out of it.

      Well done.

          And the pocket square! There are layers.

            The cloven feet of a pig. Layers indeed.

            and of course, the tiny hands.

            and the paint can

          His “Renoir” is in the other corner…

  • The_Wretched

    Trump WH is acting like the Nunes memo wasn’t a giant flop. I’m glad they are too incompetent to have a plan b.

    • FAEN

      It’s how they roll. Ignore facts at all times.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      More memos !!

      LOL ha ha

      • The_Wretched

        I’m sure the anti-State dept one will fly about the same.

      • ColdCountry

        Email them! Oh, wait….

    • David Walker

      Plan b is to denigrate the actually honorable congressman from California so that no one will take Rep. Schiff’s report seriously. I’ve stopped asking “How stupid can you get?” because they keep showing us. It’s kinda not asking “How can things get worse?” and then things get worse before I finish typing. I would really, truly enjoy Schiff’s report being leaked, preferably by a republican who won’t be running and, therefore, has little to lose. Charlie Dent…you listening?

    • kareemachan

      Hate to tell you this, but nunes is promising 5 more memos…..

      They just don’t learn….

    • The_Wretched

      Stuff like this makes me want to pull my hair out. That justice should be thrown off the court for ethics violations.

      • Joe in PA

        Welcome to electing judges land. 🙁

        • j.martindale

          It has actually worked pretty well here in North Carolina. The rethug State Senate is trying to make it appointed by the legislature–which they control–because they haven’t liked the makeup of the courts for decades.

          • Joe in PA

            Well I have to agree to a point if THAT is the alternative. Gerrymandered, voter-suppressed districts have done so well. 🙁 I see that it is pretty mixed as to how SC judges are seated.


      • David Walker

        Should be? Yes. Will be? This is PA. I doubt if it’s in the news, at least in Harrisburg. I’d look, but I don’t want to include me in their hit count.

    • ZRAinSWVA

      That map is exactly what’s wrong with our country. Anyone that would do this has no scruples or morals, and doesn’t give a shit about our democracy.

      • Stuart Wyman-Cahall

        Just remember. Democrats have used gerrymandering to their advantage as well. The whole gerrymandering thing has GOT to go. That and the 60 vote filibuster. Seriously. Elections should have consequences . President Obama had to endure the politics of the filibuster. His agenda would almost always get 54. 53, 52 votes but NEVER the 60 “required”. It was heartbreaking. And I don’t care if Republicans end the filibuster. Maybe that’ll get voters off their asses and vote!!

  • MikeBx2

    And if anyone knows “tremendous courage and grit” it’s Donald Trump.

  • boobert

    I miss the final hour of that game last night. It was nice not thinking about the moron and his cronies.

  • Jefe5084

    Has always been, and will always be a loser. Wish we didn’t have to get dragged down with his idiocy.

  • grindstone

    Re-using: yo memo so thin, Michael Kors put it on the runway.

  • Gustav2

    What he has had to endure…Nunes also had bone spurs.

    • David Walker

      It made for instant bonding. Well, that and a shared hatred for everything.

      • JCF

        …everything DECENT.

  • Billanddogs

    I think Trump meant to tweet, “a man of tremendous courage and GRIFT.” He left out the R.

  • HZ81

    Yes stand down US troops. A real hero has arrived.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada
    • Robin Cederblad

      Absolutely brilliant response…

  • Richard B

    Oh I am sure Devin Nunes will be remembered as being used by Donald Trump as his lackey, losing his California congressional seat, going to jail for obstructing justice.
    When he is in jail, this big hairy rat will have time to wonder if having Donald Trump indelible footprint on his face was all worth it.

  • HomerTh

    No one is going to name a school after Nunes.

  • Halou

    What Nunes did is not great, it is not American, and it is not heroic.

  • tim870

    I wonder if they gave him and Faux News a different memo. Cause it sure ain’t the one we all read.

    • Dazzer

      It’s not like Trump read either version, either

  • Gerry Fisher

    Ahhhh…I just love gas lighting before noon on a Monday morning! It’s *better* than the smell of napalm! (That reference is getting old.)

    • Gerry Fisher

      I read an op ed piece during the weekend that made the point that, generally, the US institutions are holding up reasonably well against Trump’s onslaught: the free press, the judiciary, the intelligence community. With one exception. Congress folded like a cheap prom dress. Our founders probably didn’t anticipate that that branch of government could be coopted and controlled so thoroughly by the executive branch (via one political party).

      • Tor

        Which brings up a thought of mine. I don’t understand how or why the Republicans consistently fall in line, no matter how bad the idea, the person, or the proposal.

  • Prost Seattle

    I just had a very bad thought. I hope Donald Jr. isn’t being groomed to be the next Republican President. Yes, it was a wicked bad sleep night.

  • Joseph Miceli

    So…creating yet another character destroying, passel of false witness bearing lies that is a poor attempt to cover up treason means that Devon Nunes is a “great American hero?”
    Anyone old enough here to remember Gilda Radner’s “Let’s Talk Dirty to the Animals?”
    “Fuck you…Mr. Trump. Eat Shit Mr. Ryan, but never tell Inspector Mueller to bite…my…snatch!”

  • Gene Perry

    Maybe Trump will appoint Nunes the new Attorney General (as soon as he fires Sessions).

  • JWC

    Ya and Hitler loved Goebbels There is love all around

  • TK

    Nunes is a traitor with no courage at all. And hopefully he will soon be enduring an investigation and possible jail time. A total lying scumbag just like his boss.

  • ColdCountry


  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    In other words – if you kiss the Dear Leader’s prodigious, oleaginous, orange posterior (p00p) and cover up his CRIMES, you are a great HERO. If you expose his malfeasance and corruption, you are a ZERO. Got it! Hope Mueller is taking notes.

  • TK

    OT – but have mentioned helping a friend move to Ecuador and thought this is an interesting comparison to our totally corrupt, shitshow political system.

    “Today (Sunday) is Election Day in Ecuador – today the Ecuadorians take to the
    polls to vote on 7 referendum questions, ranging from changes in taxes,
    to protection of Amazon regions, to re-instating term limits. This is
    how Ecuador conducts elections:

    Just a few of the differences:
    – There is a short campaign season of a few weeks
    – Sale of alcohol stops at noon two days before the election, and doesn’t resume until noon the day after
    – Election is held on a Sunday, when most people are not working

    – EVERYONE MUST VOTE! That’s the big one. If you cannot prove you
    voted in the last election, you can have trouble doing things like
    renewing your drivers license, paying property taxes, etc. (over 65 or
    disabled exempt).
    – RESULTS ARE STRICTLY POPULAR VOTE – no “electoral college”.

    Maybe the USA could learn something from the way elections are held in this “third-world” country.”

    • TK

      And I’m sure their political candidates can’t take huge sums of money from corrupt corporations and special interests.

      • Dazzer

        Please tell me your friend is Julian Assange. Pretty please.

      • It Takes a Village, People

        Yes, I’m sure those things are closely related.

    • CB

      I have a dear friend (and former employee/colleague) who moved to Cuenca Ecuador about 7 years ago. We had a long conversation yesterday about this very topic. Hopefully the capital gains tax there will drop from 75% to 10%, which it was previously. She was telling me that Ecuadorians at all income levels are very conscious of the economic implications of their vote. She’s thrilled she moved there. The World’s Best Boyfriend® and I are going for Christmas…finally.

      • TK

        That’s very encouraging to hear. The friend I helped move there lives on the coast, north of Manta. Very small fishing town. Loves being there. I have another friend who’s been in Cuenca for almost a year and she loves it too. I am seriously considering retirement there. I loved Cuenca – awesome city, so beautiful. And the Ecuadorian people are wonderful. Have a great visit!! I may go back in June or July to check out their “winter”.

        • CB

          There are lots of expats in Cuenca. If you’re thinking of going, check this out. Ashley has been dealing with a lot of people making the move from the U.S.

          • TK

            Thanks for the link. My friend did tons of research prior to moving so I already have quite a lot of info and resources for making the move. But I’ll check it out for sure – the more info, the better!!

    In Lord Dampnut’s defense here, it does take a lot of courage to stand up repeatedly in front of everyone and prove you’re an idiot.

    Dear Donut-ella, Audie Murphy was a “great American hero.” Nunes is just some asshole politician who has his nose stuck up your ass.

    Kick that POS Drumpf lackey Nunes OUT!!!

    I love this headline at Janz’s website:
