From The Art of the Deal to the NFL’s kneel — and most points in between — it’s time for a look back at the week that was. Personal Liberty Digest® presents: The WIRE!
Democrats pounced when President Donald Trump announced a cancellation of the upcoming summit with North Korean despot Kim Jong Un, claiming Trump had been “played” by the diminutive dictator. He got back three hostages, they met with South Korea and demolished a nuclear testing site… call in return for nothing.
If I could get played like that, I’d be spending more time in Trump’s casinos.
The Dems pouncing really missed the mark: not only did the Norks cough up the hostages and testing site, they announced they’d still be willing to meet whenever it suited President Trump. So he got what he wanted, and they opened the door to coming back for a better deal. You’d think the Dems would stop betting against this guy.
I mean he literally wrote the book.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi could barely contain her glee over the canceled summit. She was heard gloating that Kim Jong Un would be “having a giggle fit.” Sharing the lulz with a homicidal dictator, just to own the Trumpsters. Yeah, that’s a good look, Nancy.
Why not throw out some of those “crumbs” while you’re at it?
Speaking of Nancy’s crumbs, Democrat Rep. Jared Polis is proposing a bill to repeal the GOP tax cuts that millions of middle-class Americans are reaping the benefits of.
Might as well propose a bill to repeal the Democrats’ chances of capturing a Congressional majority this fall.
The Democrats opened the week with the explanation that Obama DoJ plants didn’t spy on the Trump campaign, they were just investigating. I can’t wait for kids to start using that in school.
I wasn’t spying on the smart kid’s answers to the test. I was just investigating them.
The “Obama didn’t spy on the Trump campaign” narrative went up in smoke this week when former DNI James Clapper accidentally admitted to The View’s Joy Behar that they did in fact “spy” on the then-candidate.
To be fair, he was being forced to listen to Joy Behar. The best of us might’ve cracked.
Broke: Confidential human sources.
Joke: the old girl lost anyway.
The president rattled the liberal cages when he demanded a Justice Department investigation into the Obama spying operation. Disgraced former Attorney General Eric Holder called Trump’s order “democracy threatening.” Sounds like members of a certain former administration are worried what might turn up.
Whatsamatter Eric? Your heart beating “fast and furious?”
Santa Fe High School attacker Dimitrios Pagourtzis’s social media history is the expected billboard of crazy. And of course, no one knew a thing until he opened fire.
So yeah, let’s blame the NRA. That’s much easier.
Weird how the Democrats who hide behind armed security claim to care about the children, but oppose any efforts to make it harder for deranged murderers to waltz in the front door with a shotgun. If he’d been toting a Bible, they’d have been on him like Bill Clinton on a chubby intern.
Hey! This is a Jesus free zone!
A potential mass shooting averted at Louie’s Restaurant in Lake Hefner, Oklahoma, when a would-be assailant was met by an armed citizen, leaving only one person dead: the would-be assailant. That’s right, a good guy with a gun stopped a bad guy with a gun.
Gun grabbers were despondent.
Congrats to Barack and Michelle Obama on their new deal with Netflix, which is expected to pay them in the “high eight figures.” I guess it’s true what they say: Netflix really will greenlight any damned thing.
This season, on Orange is the New Black…
Obama tried out some new material this week claiming “I did not have scandals as president.”
Misters Doherty, Smith, Stevens and Woods were unavailable for comment.
Disgraced Hollywood mogul and Democratic Party bagman Harvey Weinstein turned himself into the NYPD Friday to face charges related to his serial abuse of women. Given their close personal relationship with the creep, senior Democrats must be sweating bullets. So should Harvey.
“So what if you know where the bodies are buried, Harv. Who do you think put them there?”
2016 election loser Hillary Clinton told the crowd at the New York Democratic Party Convention this week “If you believe that standing up for evidence and reason and respecting the rule of law is critical to our democracy, you’ve got to vote for Democrats.”
And they’d better step on it, before the Democrats get their hands on the BleachBit.
The NFL didn’t have enough fun last year with players kneeling for our national anthem, thereby infuriating fans, they decided to pass a rule requiring players who take the field for the anthem to remain standing or else. Another season of the game being the second most important thing happening on the field. Yeah, the fans will be thrilled.
They can take comfort knowing this guy is watching it all on TV, just like them.
And that’s your week in review! For the Personal Liberty Digest®, I’m Ben Crystal saying “See you next week, on The WIRE!”
