Virginia's Grifty Former First Lady Offered To Cure Ann Romney's MS With This One Weird Trick

News

Gather round, kiddies, it's time for another installment of the As The Grift Turns, the tragic tale of the former Lord and Lady McDonnell of Virginia, now on trial for being corrupt, greedy, generally awful, and dumb enough to get caught, all because Her Majesty Maureen really wanted an Oscar de la Renta gown for her husband's inaugural, and also they had "an unconscionable amount in credit card debt." One thing led to another, as such things do, and suddenly they were awash in fabulous gifts and prizes from Richmond businessman Jonnie Williams Sr., for the basement-bargain price of maybe breaking a few laws here and there by pimping his company's magical tobacco-based "dietary supplement" Antabloc. Allegedly.


And that's just the recap.

On Monday, Phil Cox, the former head of former Gov. McDonnell's former political action committee, added a new twist with his trial testimony. Enter Ann Romney. (Yes. That's right. Her Even MORE Royal Majesty, Ann freakin' Romney.)

Cox also testified that he witnessed Maureen McDonnell tried to pitch Ann Romney on Anatabloc while they were all on a campaign bus shortly after the endorsement.

“Mrs. McDonnell was talking to Ann Romney about how Anatabloc could potentially cure MS,” he said.

[Pause for laughter. And more laughter. Go on, take your time.]

Asked Ann Romney’s response, he replied, “She’s extremely classy. She listened.”

Asked for his own, Cox said, “I was horrified. I thought it was a train wreck. I thought it was improper that Maureen would try to push this product on Ann Romney, and I didn’t think it showed the governor in a great light.”

Obviously, we are aghast at the classy-less-ness of trying to pimp Uncle Jonnie's miracle weed -- now in new snake oil flavor! -- to the presumptive* next first family of the United States of America. Quelle horreur! (That's French for "SERIOUSLY, lady?) But we are stone cold shocked that in this story of bad Republicans behaving badly, Ann Romney -- whose horse has more style and class than you, and you over there, and you women, of course, and you people -- is not, in this one-time-only particular instance, the rottenest egg. Allegedly.

*Unskewed, of course.

What's up fuckers? Were you waiting for me to come back from Mexico and write words at ya? Well, you know I don't write words at ya anymore, because of how I hate you, each, individually, but more importantly Trump has knocked all the words right out of my silly little lady brain.

BONESAW WEEK WILL NEVER END! It's like Infrastructure Week, only stuff actually happens. And the stuff is all horrible! This morning, Saudi authorities indicted 11 suspects in the October killing of Jamal Khashoggi, announcing their intention to execute five of them. Despite copious evidence that the killing in the Turkish consulate was ordered by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, lackeys are going to take the fall -- with their heads. And the US Treasury Department dutifully responded by imposing sanctions on 17 Saudis "involved in the abhorrent killing" of a legal US resident who was in the process of applying for citizenship. So, we're good now, yes? We can go back to selling them murder machines to kill Yemeni civilians?

And then SHIT GOT WEIRD.

NBC reports that the Trump administration is so desperate to resume normal relations with Jared Kushner's BFF MBS that they're trying to trade 77-year-old cleric Fetullah Gülen -- a lawful resident of Pennsylvania for 20 years -- to the Turkish government in exchange for them dropping the inquiry into the Khashoggi murder.
