Democrats Lash Out at FBI Memo – Other Memos Speak Out #MemoToo
A newly released memo describes the FBI as using a false Russian dossier and a squad of cheerleaders to convince a judge to grant a warrant to spy on Donald Trump’s campaign.
Irked Democrats variously argue the memo says nothing, is anti-FBI, omits key facts or lacks context, such as that implicated ex-deputy director Andrew McCabe and ex-director James Comey are good people who do charity-fundraising car washes in skimpy bathing suits.
One senator, Pennsylvania’s Paul Puffkin, maintains the original Democratic charge: the memo’s release endangers national security by revealing FBI sources and methods. In one example, the memo reveals how Comey signed a re-authorization for the spying using a pen obtained from the stationary closet. Another passage describes how agents get their coffee from the FBI cafeteria. Also, that the agency has a “Bring Your Suspect to Work” day in March.
“The president should not publicly reveal these practices,” Puffkin said in a statement to himself. “It puts in harm’s way not only our agents, but their hot beverages.”
Morally Superior YouTube Tags Government Channels
YouTube has begun identifying videos that are funded by governments as part of an effort to alert people to news bias. Channels on the video platform like PBS, BBC and RT (formerly Russia Today until it divorced its life partner Ukraine Today) now carry large red warning labels. The labels include buttons that offer viewers to click “Yes, Continue Watching” or “Get Me Out of Here!” which redirects to a Sesame Street presentation on “Sexual Harassment in the Workplace” starring Grover.
Bali Ali, spokesman for the Indonesia-backed channel “Bali Today,” had no problem with the policy change. Speaking from a room filled with dense volcanic smoke, Ali commented on this and the recent flu epidemic. “It’s important that cough people cough cough know where they get their cough cough cough from.”
Trump Celebrates Year in Office
As part of a continuing celebration of a year in the White House, the president proudly released a retrospective DVD, “President Trump: The Complete First Season.”
The DVD is jam-packed with speeches, cabinet meeting highlights and cameos by foreign leader favorites like the little prince from Amiens, French president Emmanuel Macron and laugh-a-minute head of China, Xi Jinping. It also includes never-before-leaked bloopers starring our 45th president at his “Trumpiest.”
The DVD comes with the 2018 “Women of the White House” calendar. It features Melania, Ivanka, State Department spokesman Heather Nauert and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley among others, each honoring a month of the year with a suggestive, barely legal pose and a stern warning to North Korea. Owing to legal obligations, former Office of Public Liaison director Omarosa Manigault stars as White House Playmate of the Year. The Women of the White House calendar promises to “make all your dreams of limited government sexy.”
