    My favorite memory of Ryan will always be him getting mauled by Joe Biden in that VP debate.

    That is sick. But what the fuck is wrong with that site? Calling it "an unwanted sexual encounter"? Are they just trying to fill in word count or is there some rule where they can't say it was a rape? Because "an unwanted sexual encounter" is the definition of rape.

    https://whatthefuckjusthappenedtoday...04/12/day-448/

    Day 448: Retroactive privilege.

    1/ Steve Bannon is working with White House aides and Congressional allies on a plan to cripple Robert Mueller's probe. The plan involves firing Rod Rosenstein, refusing to cooperate with Mueller's team, and having Trump assert executive privilege "retroactively" in order to argue that Mueller's interviews with White House officials over the past year should now be null and void. Bannon also said "Ty Cobb should be fired immediately." Trump, however, tweet that he has "full confidence in Ty Cobb." (Washington Post)

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...=.fbeab258d83c

    2/ Trump's allies plan to discredit James Comey's book tour with digital advertising labeling him "Lyin' Comey" in an effort to undermine the credibility of the former FBI director. Talking points will also be sent to Republicans before Comey's memoir is released next week, which will attack his credibility, conduct, and point out contradictions. (CNN)

    https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/12/polit...our/index.html

    3/ Trump tweeted that an attack on Syria "could be very soon or not soon at all!" Trump, trying to clarify his tweet yesterday that U.S. missiles "will be coming," claimed that he "never said when an attack on Syria would take place." In response, Syria moved its military aircraft to the Russian base near Latakia yesterday. (New York Times / Washington Post)

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...t-ready-tweet/

    4/ During his Secretary of State confirmation hearing, CIA Director Pompeo told senators that he has been interviewed by Robert Mueller. He declined to answer questions about his testimony to Mueller or conversations with Trump saying that the investigation is ongoing. (The Hill / Axios)

    http://thehill.com/policy/national-s...wed-by-mueller

    Pompeo failed to disclose last year that owned a business that imported equipment from a company owned by the Chinese government. Pompeo's new questionnaire submitted to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for his Secretary of State nomination is not publicly available. (McClatchy DC)

    http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/nati...208630194.html

    5/ A former doorman was paid $30,000 in late 2015 to sign over the rights to a story about a rumor that Trump fathered a child with an employee in the 1980s at Trump World Tower, a skyscraper he owns near the United Nations. American Media Inc., the publisher of the National Enquirer, paid Dino Sajudin to give up exclusive rights to the rumor and then never published an article about it five months after Trump had launched his Presidential campaign. (The New Yorker / CNBC / Washington Post / CNN)

    https://www.cnbc.com/2018/04/12/door...r-reports.html

    6/ The company that owns the National Enquirer also paid Karen McDougal $150,000 for a story it never published. The payout to McDougal, a former Playboy Playmate, came eight months after American Media Inc. paid $30,000 to Trump's former doorman for his story. American Media Inc. is facing a Federal Election Commission complaint claiming that the $150,000 payment represented an illegal campaign contribution. (Associated Press / New York Times)

    https://apnews.com/f37ecfc4710b468db...ious-Trump-tip

    poll/ 56% of Americans believe that the National Enquirer paid for the exclusive rights to stories that may be damaging to Trump in order to keep them from being published. 39% said the allegation was "probably true," while 17% said it was "definitely true." (CNN)

    Jared and Ivanka are heading to Lima, Peru with Pence for the Summit of the Americas. Trump originally planned to attend the summit but canceled to stay in Washington and monitor the situation in Syria. (Politico)

    Trump's federal judicial nominee refused to say whether she agreed with Brown v. Board of Education, which desegregated U.S. public schools. Wendy Vitter also maintained she could "put aside" her "pro-life" advocacy, and as a judge enforce the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision on abortion rights. (HuffPost / NPR)

    Trump wants to roll back billions in spending from the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill he signed into law last month. Republicans who helped craft the legislation are skeptical. (Politico)

    Nah, he's not being fired. Trump's too chickenshit to fire people in person. He probably just told Rosenstein to not go after his financial business again.

    The video of this is chilling. Has it really come this far? Because lets be honesty, there are plenty of racist politicians that either would have said "of course I agree with it" regardless of whether they actually did or not. Or would have spun it around to make it a "how dare you ask if I agree with it, of course I do".

    If you have to genuinely take a minute to pause and think about how you're going to phrase your response to "do you support the SCOTUS case that ended segregation", then chances are you're really, really, really racist. And stupid.

    MORE IMPORTANTLY, pee tape is almost certainly real:

    I'd never thought I'd find day where I, in fact, knew Trump had been peed on to be reassuring. What a weird reality we're in now. Amongst stories of mass corruption and war, I'm just glad to know that that one guy who I thought liked to get peed on, in fact does.

    https://t.co/atXt8KqUB7

    Federal judges indicated they have a problem with Mick Mulvaney's dual role as acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau because he also heads the White House Office of Management and Budget

    "Could you investigate to make sure there's no chance of there being a pee tape?"
    "Sir, did you in fact have hookers pee on you?"
    "No...."
    "Then I'd say there's a 100% chance that no such tape will ever come out, because it would be impossible for it to exist."
    "Yeah, but could you look into it, just in case there IS a tape?
    "Of the thing that totally never happened?"
    "Yes. it'd be bad if that got out after I denied it in all caps."

    God, just thinking of the poor, poor children who will one day have to learn about this flaming garbage pile and having the events that defined a presidential term like "Grab 'em by the pussy" and being peed on by gross russian hookers is a sad, sobering thought.
