Understood. But I suspect even they are seeing that being the only rats staying on this rapidly sinking ship captained by a cross-eyed lunatic criminal is perhaps not the best career-advancing option after all.

Bags of soup are sometimes used in fast-service restaurants. They come frozen so you can easily thaw and reheat in the double boiler. I doubt Donald knew anything about that, though. They're definitely not easy to come by. You can't buy them at the super market. Maybe the restaurant is in on it.

It seems to have originated as cans of soup in a sock or pillowcase. Anti-antifa influencers online (baselessly) accused BLM of using these as a weapon.

Trump, not knowing one food item from another if it hit him upside the head because he has never seen the inside of a kitchen except for walking through one to find the nearest media conference, confuselled "cans" for "bags" in his tiny muddled brainspace.

Well hell... another half-measure cockup from the Donald.
An eviction moratorium for renters through year's end.
What about property owners? Who's going to be the next Mnuchin jackhole to snap up apartment buildings in foreclosure come January?
And will renters be protected then from a six or seven month back rent bill?

This requires Pence plus half the cabinet, which at this point consists of the most servile of cultists. Not a chance.

I left halway through the Obama years. I should have stayed until he left so that a liveable US is somewhat recent in my memory. But alas, I'm glad I got out when I did. Sad to watch from abroad.

It starts as "cans" of soup. Sounds nasty, and effective (I'd go with the little single serving veg though... you could carry a lot more of those. [emoji1] ) but he goes immediately to "bags" of soup.
WTF?
Really... what the actual? Bags? Where did that thought even come from?
[emoji53]

TIAs baby. Walter Reed and TIAs, it's gonna come out. [emoji21]

My guess is that he meant that one or more people bring bags containing multiple cans of soup to distribute to other protesters.

Double boiler?! Got to use a microwave to get them up to boiling lava hot! Otherwise Hot Pockets™ are much more throwable.

I thought he said at the time it was the FIRST portion of a check-up (not a thing) and not the completion of same.
I may be mistaken, not that the story holds up either way.

You don't remember that, Donny, because (a) you never listen to anything anyone tells you anyway, (b) because of that and your powerful ability to blurt out all the secret squirrel stuff in public like a broken fountain, your peeps are being quite selective about what they do tell you, and (c) you were having a bunch of brain-fades at the time requiring you to go to hospital.

There's a scene in "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" in which a disguised Arthur tries to talk to some farmers about agriculture and his ignorance causes him to sound like a deranged imbecile. That's what the soup rant reminds me of.

It starts with at least half the cabinet writing a letter to Congress describing why the president needs to be removed. The vice president must sign it. The president is given a certain amount of time to respond in writing. Both houses have to have a 2/3 vote to remove him.

While it is safe to simply say his cabinet is not going to do that, there are not words strong enough to describe Pence’s commitment to never, ever, never signing that letter.

Oath Keepers to Trump: Send out the militias to stop antifascists' 'Marxist takeover' of America

Quote:

The Oath Keepers—those paranoid “Patriot” militiamen who recruit from the law ranks of military veterans and law enforcement—have a plan for responding to the death of a far-right protester Saturday in Portland at the hands of a self-described antifascist: Donald Trump needs to declare a national emergency and an insurrection in the city, send in troops, and arrest anyone they identify as “Antifa.” And if he fails to do that, they will organize “constitutional” militias to go there and do it themselves.

The organization’s Twitter account, which is overseen by founder Stewart Rhodes, has been in full war-declaration mode since the Portland shooting. “The first shot has been fired brother,” he tweeted Sunday. “Civil war is here, right now. We'll give Trump one last chance to declare this a Marxist insurrection & suppress it as his duty demands. If he fails to do HIS duty, we will do OURS.”
And may those radicalized, attempting to instigate violence **** go to jail immediately before they go on murder sprees. Seriously, overwhelmingly, it's been the right-wingers murdering people and cops, but when one of their own dies while causing trouble, it's time for a revolution! Yeah, I'm calling that what it is. A convenient excuse.

More on Kurt Schlichter:
Quote:

Schlichter has been curdling and festering into a base sludge of aggrievement at forgotten right-wing websites for years. After a brief stint at Breitbart, in 2012 he began writing thrice-weekly columns at TownHall, a site that parades endless op-eds by conservative also-rans that are on par with your average cranky letter-to-the-editor. His columns have titles like “Liberals’ Hatred Will Inevitably Turn Into Violence,” “It Is the Sacred Duty of All Conservatives to Own the Libs,” and “Buy Ammo.” Schlicter’s pieces are incoherent, barely topical screeds about pronoun-obsessed pinko commie elites who sip “Chardonnay and Zimas” and have a visceral hatred for real Americans like him, whom he calls “Normal Americans.”

Exactly, and at the moment President Trump is attempting to portray Joe Biden as the incumbent who has dragged the US into this state of lawlessness and himself as the force for change who can resolve the situation.

It's ballsy and brazen IMO - and in today's low information, post factual age it might very well win him a second (or possibly even a third ;)) term :mad:
