1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: The importance of Nancy Pelosi’s “handcuffs” exchange today with William Barr

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


The leaders of the federal government participated in a memorial event today for the National Peace Officers, which is about as nonpartisan as you can get. But when Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Attorney General William Barr came face to face at the event, they had a rather strange exchange which – despite the obvious sarcasm on both sides – is nonetheless important.



William Barr went up to Nancy Pelosi, shook her hand, and – according to several major news outlets – said to her “Madam Speaker, did you bring your handcuffs?” This was in obvious reference to Barr being held in contempt of Congress by Pelosi’s House of Representatives. Pelosi smiled and reminded Barr that the House Sergeant at Arms was on the premises in case she ended up needing to arrest him.




Let’s parse this. Again, they were both obviously being sarcastic. Barr wasn’t expecting to be arrested at the ceremony, and there’s no way Pelosi would have had him arrested during a ceremony for National Peace Officers. But the point is that this is now where things stand for Barr. He took his big swing on offense by trying to convince the public that there was nothing worth seeing in the Mueller report, and when his summary stunt failed, he then went in front of Congress to try to bail himself out, and only ended up making it even worse. Now he’s playing defense from here on out, and he knows it. It’s difficult for Barr to do much to help Trump if he’s expending all his effort to try to save his own backside.


Nancy Pelosi publicly stated last week that she’s planning to have the various House committees vote to hold Donald Trump’s other obstructors in contempt, and then hold one big high-profile hearing to have the full House vote to make it official. That should make for a huge spectacle, making clear to the American people that Trump himself is the obstructor here, and not just any individual Trump underling. From there, Pelosi will move into the punitive phase. She hasn’t tipped her hand on the details of that yet, but at least she’s keeping track of where the House Sergeant at Arms is at all times.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump is even further gone than we thought

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


In the hours since the Alabama Senate passed a hideous and plainly unconstitutional bill banning abortion, every 2020 Democratic candidate for president has boldly spoken up in opposition to it. This morning we were waiting to see what Donald Trump would say about it. After all, the GOP’s anti-abortion position is popular within the party, but toxic for mainstream voters.



Instead of tackling the anti-abortion controversy, Donald Trump went off in a different direction entirely. And when we say “went off” we mean just shy of “got confused and wandered off.” Trump has spent the day posting tweets that are vain and idiotic even by his extraordinarily low standards. After Eric Trump referenced a claim that Donald Trump looks “twenty years younger than a lot of Democratic candidates,” Donald retweeted this, and added “the BRAIN is much sharper also!” But this was just the start of the idiocy.




Donald Trump, who apparently just recently figured out that Eric Trump is his son, went on to quote Eric again – this time with the claim that New York has “gone to shit.” We think that might have something to do with the fact that New York City keeps taking the Trump name off one building after another, even as New York State digs into Trump’s financial records in the hope of exposing his lifetime of crime.


So there you have it. Instead of publicly siding with Alabama’s anti-abortion bill in the hope of stirring up his far right base, or perhaps strategically pushing back against it a bit in the hope of broadening his support, Donald Trump decided to focus on how young he looks and how smart he is. Trump has always been a joke to begin with, but at this point he’s so far gone, he’s coming off as a parody of the joke.
