Donald Trump was having a bad Executive Time. He had signed the stupid omnibus "budget" bill, and now Ann Coulter was Exorcist-vomiting all over the Fox News! He did not watch Fox News for them to tell him he was bad. He watched Fox News for the day's instructions from the Queen of Diamonds!


How mean WERE they, Washington Post?

“This is a swamp budget, this is a Mitch McConnell special, this is a dysfunctional Senate,” Fox News personality Pete Hegseth vented, referring to the Senate majority leader. “There’s no wall. Ultimately, the Democrats controlled the process in the Senate. That’s why Chuck Schumer was so happy.”

Well now it is some weeks or 17 years later, and Donald Trump would like to know if he can un-sign the budget bill he finally signed after a big old tantrum. Because he is a mad king, a lunatic, and also he sucks.

Facing pressure from conservatives for their budget-busting moves, President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans are considering forcing votes that would cut billions of dollars in spending from the bipartisan funding deal they just passed last month, according to sources familiar with the plan.

White House officials are working closely with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on the rescission package, said the sources. It’s not clear which programs could be targeted or when the House would vote, although the White House had targeted dozens of programs in Trump's 2019 budget proposal. The White House also proposed nearly $15 billion in budget cuts as part of last year’s hurricane relief package, which were never acted upon. [And, according to Axios, is looking to cut $60 billion -- ed.]

Can they do it, on a party line vote? According to the 1974 Budget Act, they can! Ain't that a motherfuck!

Of course, everyone will laugh and laugh at them, and they will never get another Democratic vote for eternity -- like, not even Joe Manchin, maybe -- if they do backsies after they FINALLY got a bipartisan vote to keep the government open.

So how badly did Chuck & Nancy roll the president? And how salty were Breitbart's tears?

As Breitbart News reported, the omnibus spending bill contains language that explicitly bars funding for a southern border wall.

The omnibus also contains provisions that expand the H-2B visa-worker program, which would reduce market pressure on companies to offer American workers higher wages.

Republican leadership included provisions that will allow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to conduct gun research as well.

Additionally, the omnibus has the Fix NICS Act, which would allow unelected bureaucrats to remove Americans’ right to purchase firearms without due process.

Very salty indeed! And they didn't even note that one of the bourgie liberal wins in the omnibus budget bill -- and neither had we, till just now! -- was the reinstatement of alternative energy tax credits for solar and geothermal that had run out in 2016. Picking winners and losers in the market? Have they never heard of Obama's GREATEST SCANDAL, besides all the other ones and the tan suit, a little thing called SOLYNDRA? Geothermal and solar power are NOT EVEN COAL.

BRB, mama's taking out a second mortgage on her house to install geothermal and get $10,000 of your tax moneys back once she does, because nobody told her heating in Montana costs $500 per month.

Send us money for geothermal. Wait, no, we're borrowing that. Send us money for salaries, health care, freelance writers, servers and nonsense! You know you like it.

This weekend, hundreds of people are gathering in Denver, Colorado for the 2018 Flat Earth Conference -- two whole days of people with suspiciously Andy Warhol-like hair yelling "Where's the curve?!?" and talking about ice walls -- and we are missing out! Flat earthers are kind of the best of all conspiracy theorists, because aside from a few fascists and anti-Semites in the mix, they are mostly harmless cranks who just want to feel like they are way smarter than all of the scientists. As far as I know, believing in a Flat Earth, while stupid, has never hurt anyone -- which is honestly kind of refreshing these days!

Every so often on this here internet, we get a hate read that is so perfect, that so aptly encapsulates a particular form of douchebaggery that we all must collectively gasp at it's awfulness and revel in the general repulsiveness of the arrogant human being so lacking in self-awareness that they actually thought it would be a good idea to write such a thing. Today, I bring you such a hate read -- Matthew Binder's A Glimpse Into the Ideological Monoculture of Literary New York.

And yes, it's actually worse than it sounds, if that is possible.
