Situation Room Follies

As we sit down to watch the surely earth-shattering "Situation Room" interview with Bill Clinton, we present a selection of special "SitRoom" (cute, huh?) moments, collected by operatives across the globe! Live! Simultaneously!

Included: Wolf and the price of milk, snoozing Schneider, and a thing we stole from CJR.

It's nice to know operatives are as lazy as we are. From yesterday:

Operative1: I just saw something kind of funny.

Operative2: ok.

Operative1: CNN has a new show called "The Situation Room" with Wolfe Blitzer. It's really flashy and fast-paced.

Operative1: And they did this segment with their wall-street guy, explaining about how the airlines are doing.

Operative1: And the guy had a gallon of milk in his hands, and was using it to explain that the price for a gallon of milk is different from the price of a gallon of cow's milk if it goes into ice cream, butter, etc.

Operative1: And he used that to explain about the "crack spread" on jet fuel oil, which is hurting airlines.

Operative2: hmm

Operative1: And after he was done, Wolf Blitzer said, "Let me see that gallon of milk."

Operative1: ?

Operative1: "Are milk prices going up like the price of oil?"

Operative1: And the guy was like, umm I'll look into that.

Operative2: oh, wolf.

Your intern forgot to count the number of times Wolf said "thanks very much" or some variant therein in the Situation Room. He abuses that phrase and it is like rubbing sandpaper on an open wound. *shudder*

I'm not sure if this is a tip, but I couldn't let this gem from Wolf's Situation go unnoticed. As the camera spanned the vast-NASDEQ-esque screens, we all got an amazing view of Bill Schneider sleeping. Maybe not at REM-4, but certainly both eyes shut, and very much drifting off. This just 5 minutes after Wolf tried 5 times to say NCAA.

The show keeps getting better and better. [We looked for this but missed it ourselves; we'd be grateful if anyone out there caught this on tape/bits/whatever. -- ed.]

DHS photo (Every damn ICE pic looks like this)

Donald Trump's immigration goon squads were all set to start mass arrests and deportations of families in multiple cities Sunday, but before the raids started, he tweeted Saturday that he'd decided to delay the operation by two weeks -- to allow Democrats a chance to join Republicans in trashing US asylum law. Trump took a phone call Friday evening from Nancy Pelosi urging him to hold off on the raids, although it's also possible that internal disagreements about the operation at the Department of Homeland Security may have been part of the reason for the delay, too. In the meantime, Trump gets to terrify undocumented families some more and rant about deporting "millions," although the planned operation was actually targeted only at a couple thousand people who have already received deportation orders.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement had been gearing up to start raids in 10 US cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, and Baltimore, to show how tough America is, and never mind that the sweeps would certainly have led to more family separations, as ICE scooped up at least some undocumented parents of children born in the US. The news also comes while the media is reporting filthy, inhuman conditions at the border camps where newly arrested immigrants, including babies, are being packed in, leading to plenty of awkward questions about why the government suddenly wants to arrest more people in the interior of the country? (Hint: President Eichmann just announced his reelection bid.)

The Great Deporter announced the delay of the operation Saturday by Twitter, as if that were normal, then followed up with more bluster Sunday.

Kamala Harris was holding it down at the South Carolina Democratic Convention this weekend, and she wasn't just there to kick it at Clyburn's Fish Fry, hang out with Berndog Sanders, and just look extra good. No. She fucking running for President, and she's actually got a chance, unlike the many Mayo Casserole Men who keep jumping into the damn race. Why did they jump in after Kamala and Elizabeth Warren, the only people who are even running, clearly said, "We got it from here, boys"? Not sure, but regardless, it was unnecessary. Doesn't matter anyway because who is gonna remember Dadface McDorksky when Kamala is turning it the fuck out with speeches indicting Trump?

Do you believe in America? Kamala Harris believes in America, and her Saturday speech calls out for justice, and righteousness; where Barack Obama struck hopeful, dulcet, aspirational tones, Harris strikes sharp chords of urgency. To say that she read Trump the riot act would be, and is, an understatement; what she did here raised a crucial reality that some Dems refuse to see. Trump MUST be prosecuted. The Democratic nominee will wear many hats, and one of the most important of those hats is that of a prosecutor. There is a case to be made against Donald J. Trump, hell, there are so many cases, and as far as Harris is concerned, who better to make that case, but a COP? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
