They don’t even see a problem


Our vice president obliviously tweeted this out of his tweeter yesterday.

I truly wonder what he was thinking. Did he take a look at this photo and actually think “this is a proud moment for our administration, show it off to the world”? Did he notice, does he even care how this looks?

That’s not America in that room, but they’re deciding the fate of health care for all Americans.

    The very model of diversity. One white man is wearing a yellow tie. Another white man has taken his jacket off. And a third white man has a beard. See? Diversity! And since these white men are so diverse, they know what everyone wants and needs from a health insurance policy — not just white men, by diverse white men, making decisions for white men and the not-quite-fully-humans.

    Yep, exactly what people like Trump and Pence want to see.

    Oh, I saw that yesterday, reading the very long tweetstream of responses to the particular idiot Senator who snarked about mammograms.

    Yeah, I’m not exactly feeling represented over here.

    This is Mike Pence, who approved sending Purvi Patel to jail for 20 years because Patel had had a miscarriage.

    He does not appear to care that he looks like, and is, a misogynistic & racist immoral monster.

    I took one glance at that picture and felt sick.
    Another bunch of old, rich white men.

    To be fair it’s not their fault.
    It’s the fault of those who keep electing them.
    FWIW, most of the misnamed Freedom Caucus are from the South.
    Nothing new here but the name.

    He didn’t do it obliviously.

    I think it’s way past time we stop acting like these people are awkwardly blundering around about these things. They’re doing what they intend to do. They hate women. They want them to be quiet and out of the way making babies and staying home. And photos like that is them rubbing it in our faces, saying “what are you gonna do about it?”

    CNN headline: “House Republicans pull health care bill”

    In that report is the following passage:

    “Trump has confidence in Ryan, Spicer said earlier Friday.
    “”I think the speaker has done everything he can,” Spicer said. “He’s worked really closely with the President. I think at the end of the day, you know I said this yesterday, you can’t force people to vote.”
    “But the President is said to be “agitated” by the process, an aide said, which he thinks is all “political.””

    Let me repeat that.

    The President is said to be agitated by the process which thinks is all political.

    *snicker, what did he expect?*

    what did he expect?

    North Korean–style dancing in the streets, singing spontaneous songs of praise, obedience, and devotion to teh Great Orange Magnificent Hair Furor.

    The Tiny Tyrant expected politics to be over after elections.
    Of course political process is political, the dumbass.

    @16: Since the emperor has no brain, its hard to say. But it seems they all think its a football game. That’s what all the republicans and their foxy shills have been likening it to all week.

    As if playing a game is a more dignified and noble way to conduct a government. You know, its all just a matter of whether you win or lose and profound shit like that. Just ask a certain 14-term congressman from Texas: he thinks its important to win: “It’s one thing to be in the fight and try to score a touchdown, but sometimes on the fourth down, you kick the field goal.”

    When reflecting on that brilliant motive, his Texan constituents might remember that you never learn anything new the second time you get kicked by a mule. Not even by the 20th time.
