A lot of people are very righteously angry on this Martin Luther King Jr. Day, that Trump-sucking sycophant senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA), both of whom were in the room when Donald Trump reportedly and repeatedly called Haiti and all the countries of Africa "shitholes," do not remember Trump saying that, and also deny it 100%, and also they think maybe he said "shithouse" and not "shithole" which is totally different somehow:

"I did not hear derogatory comments about individuals or persons, no," said Cotton, who was in the Oval Office meeting on Thursday where Mr. Trump questioned why the United States would accept more people from "sh*thole countries," according to Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin. [...]

"I didn't hear it, and I was sitting no further away from Donald Trump than Dick Durbin was," Cotton said Sunday. Cotton declined to say definitively that Mr. Trump did not say the word "sh*thole," unlike Sen. David Perdue of Georgia, who flatly denied Mr. Trump used the word on ABC's "This Week."

Well that settles that. Except:

Oh that's right. Lindsey Graham confessed. And he says he gave Trump the old what-for treatment when he said the "shithole" thing. And now, on Monday, he's not changing his story.

So who is lying? Is it Dick Durbin and Lindsey Graham? Is it GOP Senator Jeff Flake, who says he heard about the comments before they were in the newspaper? Or is it Tom Cotton and David Perdue and Donald Trump, who has lied more than 2,000 times in his presidency, according to the Washington Post's abacus?

Well, we know Trump is lying, because that's what lying liars do.

But our HOT TAKE is maybe the GOP senators from Arkansas and Georgia are such fucking racists it really didn't register when Donald Trump said something egregiously racist. Maybe they are the types of people who think they are not racist, in fact they think they're so not racist that when they say racist things about their black neighbors keeping their lawns neatly trimmed, but on the other hand THOSE OTHER blacks are bad, they start their sentences with, "You know I'm the least racist person in the world, but ..."

We are talking about two white GOP senators from Dixie, after all.

Cotton has a history of using racist dogwhistles in his campaigns. When he was in college (at Harvard, somehow, which sounds like some white people affirmative action to us), he liked to write about how racism would go away if we just stopped talking about race.

Perdue, meanwhile, told a crowd at a conservative wingnut Jesus festival that they should all pray for Barack Obama to die. But he chuckled when he said it, so it was probably just a hilarious joke libtards don't understand!

Also, Cotton and Perdue authored the RAISE Act Trump wants passed, the one that takes a shit on the Statue of Liberty in favor of only letting in the most educated workers, a policy that would have the entirely intended effect of Making Immigration (More) White Again, while kicking refugees directly in the dick.

So yes, we are just raising the possibility that Tom Cotton and David Perdue are garden variety southern bigots and maybe they don't remember Trump being racist because Trump's racism didn't even register in their tiny brains. Maybe if Trump had said something "reverse racist" about how not all white people are perfect, they would have heard it and voiced their outrage.

Of course, it's also entirely possible Cotton and Perdue are just dumb fucking Trump-fellating assholes lying to curry favor with the Orange Shitstain in the Oval. Whoa if true, right????

Nancy Pelosi is making news again today after her weekly press conference, mostly because she said this about yesterday's nutbag performance from President Stable Genius:

[T]his time, another temper tantrum — again — I pray for the President Of The United States. I wish him and his family, his administration and staff would have an intervention for the good of the country.

She prays for him. And she's just kind of suggesting that maybe the president is unwell, in his brain. She's being very subtle!

When Glenn Thrush asked afterward what kind of "intervention" she might be talking about, she suggested that Article 25 would be just fine.

But many folks out there right now are saying "BUT WHAT ABOUT INPEACH! They are not going to do an intervention, because the intervention is called INPEACH!" (They are taking her words very literally, it would seem.) Every other damn day lately, there is news about how "NANCY SAID INPEACH IS BAD" or "NANCY SAID TRUMP'S ACTIONS IS SELF-INPEACH-ATORY, WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN, NANCY!" and whatever else, we don't know, because we have muted all of Twitter until further notice. (Here is some news about the House Democrats' weekly meeting yesterday, most of which was about Democrats yelling INPEACH! while Nancy Pelosi gave them cold showers.)

Here's the thing:

In today's presser, Pelosi was clearer than ever about her feelings on impeachment -- she doesn't like it, and she'd really hate for the nation to get to a place where that's inevitable, she is just saying it would be truly terrible for them to have to do that -- but they might just be FORCED to go there. And wouldn't that be just terrible? Nancy Pelosi is praying about that just like she is praying for Trump, under a big oak tree that casts all the shade she threw at Donald Trump for her entire fucking presser.

Happy Throwback Thursday! Remember Paul Manafort? He's still in jail, don't worry. But it looks like he might be getting some company soon from his old pal Stephen Calk, who just got indicted today by the Southern District of New York.

Calk was a simple CEO and COB at the Federal Savings Bank of Chicago, but he had big dreams. He'd been an army pilot and a money guy, so he figured he was competent to be either Secretary of Treasury or Secretary of Army. He'd take Commerce or HUD, or even a cool ambassadorship to France, or the UK, or the UN -- he wasn't picky. Just any old position befitting a guy who is 100 percent going to be played by Michael McKean in the movie version of this nightmare.

Luckily Calk knew a guy on the inside. Sure that guy had recently been You're Fired from the Trump campaign for ratfucking the Ukrainian election, but Paul Manafort was still waving his bits all over Trumpland in the summer and fall of 2016, so Paul Manafort had the hookup that Calk needed. Luckily, Calk had what Manafort needed, which was MONEY. Manafort's fountain of untaxed cash had dried up since the Ukrainians gave his guy Viktor Yanukovych the boot, and he was in danger of losing multiple investment properties to foreclosure. So naturally Calk stepped up to the plate with $15 million in loans to keep the wolves at bay, because what are friends with more political ambition than scruple for, right?
