    Jake needs to come back to work with a meat ax.

    • Cecelia

      I’m not getting this. Why would Tapper object to a chyron quoting antisemitic remarks from Spencer?

      • Larry Kelly

        Maybe he just did like the NOT PEOPLE thing sliding by like a billboard upsetting dementia residents of the old folks home propped in front of a TV.

        • Cecelia

          So he’s wants to put in a plain brown wrapper an antisemitic remark, when he’s been on twitter all week working hard to link Trump supporters with George Wallace?

          I give up.

          • Larry Kelly

            I was being a bit flippant, but don’t really understand exactly what has his fur rubbed the wrong way.

          • Cecelia

            Trump.

  • Larry Kelly

    Barely remember the Tucker accusation bs. Not inclined to refresh my memory.

  • Cecelia

    This thing with the chyron shown on The Lead is confusing.

    I read the above link last night and thought that it made no sense.

    Why would Jake Tapper be angry over a chyron that repeats what alt right leader Richard Spencer said about Jews?

    Does Tapper think this awful remark was so insulting that it shouldn’t have been reported via an attention grabbing chyron? That’s a bit squeamish for a journalist.

    Now I hear today that Spencer’s remark was made about tv talking-heads, which makes me think that by using the term “golem”, Spencer was pulling out the great Zionist Media Conspiracy canard.

    In which case…again…why would Tapper object to a chyron quoting that?

    Does Tapper think that all Trump supporters, who he’s so ardently been linking to antisemitism, might read the chyron and be triggered into attacking Jews forthwith or something?…

    I’m being facetious…I think… I’m certainly not understanding what went down in today’s outrage.

  • Dick Morris was live on his Facebook “like” page a short time ago to lament Trump’s decision not to charge Hillary. He loathes the Clintons, so his frustration is understandable.

  • Larry Kelly

    It is good to remember that in the dual, Hamilton got killed.

      ssh! spoilers!

      The Aaron Burr story gets even weirder after the duel. They should make something about that.

      • Larry Kelly

        Blennerhassett, “the Enchanted Island” is only twenty miles from me in the middle of the Ohio River. Aaron Burr stayed there until arrested while he planned his ill-fated Expedition to the Southwest (1805-1807). The glorious mansion built, incredibly with materials brought from Ireland, was burned to the ground in 1811. A West Virginia state park now, the mansion was replicated in 1984. I toured it a couple summers ago.

        the book “the fallen founder” in my opinion has the best account of the 1800 election and his treason trials. a good read if you have not already.

      shot of the jersey side of the banks of the east river as dueling was illegal in NY, it took several days for him to die in pain.

  • Larry Kelly

    Hhmmm, everybody that was anybody but Megyn and Hannity at Trump’s media off-the-record powwow yesterday. Just executives from FNC, other networks also brought talent.

    Explains Ms Kelly being grumpy with Kellyanne.

  • sky303

    I would think FNC /and FBN would start using Studio F soon, you don’t spend that kind of money and not use it.

  • Cecelia

    Another question I have: Was the Trump meeting with our media overlords like an ‘effing firing squad’ or not?

    Why the hell cant I get a goddamn consistent word of anything now?

    • Larry Kelly

      Largely because this was an off-the-record meeting so the only bastards commenting are untrustworthy by definition.

      • Cecelia

        I guess we have to wait a week until they issue the official narrative.

        Keep you and your family safe. I’ve never been in a hurricane. Don’t want to be, either.

        • gcblues

          tropical storm, hurricane, this far south and on the west side it is mostly just enormous amounts of rain that we get anyway. this late blow should be the last for the year. when i was in Coco costa rica it rained over 13 inches one day and sunk 3 boats, wiped out the bridge to bar vida loca and washed caymans out to sea where they came back up the beach and scared tourists. that was just rain, not even a tropical depression. if you kept my wife’s FB page there are several vids of tropical rain in my yard. i’ll vid this one too when it comes through. like a hurricane, which i have experienced, tropical rain is so loud you cannot even hear someone talk in the house. really wild. i built both places here and in coco, WHICH IS FOR SALE, when you build them you plain for being able to dispose immense amounts of water and erosion. in coco i drained a 2500 sq foot roof into giant gutters with 6 inch tube down spots that emptied into concrete box’s that drained into 2 giant holes i dug with a back hoe, filled with cinder block and covered with plastic net and buried. in the 10 years i lived there my neighbor’s property lost as much as 10 inches on the down hill side. the property is almost flat, AND JUST UNDER 2 ACRES 400 METERS FROM THE BEACH, but with some smart planting and accounting for water accumulated by the roof i have lost nothing. likely gained from some up hill neighbors

    Who was the guy badmouthing how Tucker doing? Where are you? Come out, got a crow sandwich for you.

    • gcblues

      not, it is bolling and hannity that make me puke.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        He didn’t mean you. There’s another that occasionally pops in. He doesn’t like Megyn either.
        I found her book at Goodwill for $2.99. Not a bad read. She’s actually a redhead, which explains the temper. Irish redheads make the best friends – and the worst enemies. People need to remember to choose wisely.

        • gcblues

          i liked her better when she was smart before she was hot.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            She’s always been hot.
