Esquire peers at McNaughton's lithograph

August 2, 2018


McNaughton painting is not particularly useful as a reflection of reality, at least as most would recognize it. Instead, it's a momentary glimpse through the kaleidoscopic lens that Fox News conservatives now see the world. The president is not just Good, but a Great Man of History on the level of the Founding Fathers.


(Emperor Carrot's) Patriot Boat also features some of his prominent aides and cabinet membersóbut conveniently leaves out all the ones who have resigned in disgrace, or even those who've stuck around in it.


There's no place for former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price


There's no Scott Pruitt, either.

It appears there isn't even space for Ryan Zinke

Wilbur Ross did make it in the front (Did McNaughton lie about who was seated in the boat ? Jeff Sessions is listed, but the seated figure could represent either man. The brimmed hunting hat hides distinctive features. Grumpy Old Keebler Elf could portray either man.)

https://www.esquire.com/news-politic...on-mcnaughton/

Esquire provides an introduction to McNaughton's previous creations.


"The artist's previous offering was a bizarre spasm of the persecution complex plaguing the right, where The Secular Left is forcing Christianity out of American life"

"Other recent McNaughton works show Trump menacing Special Counsel Robert Mueller with a magnifying glass, or Trump hugging an American flag standing on a football field in a work titled, "Respect the Flag." There's even an ode to Cliven Bundy, the freeloading anti-government rancher with some interesting views on race. In this respect, the paintings are often boilerplate resentment topics pulled from Fox or talk radio, with a point of view delivered with the subtlety you expect from a Ben Garrison cartoon."

Jesus the Christ is the size of a demi-god. Everyone present, is dwarfed by his height, weight, muscles. He could crush anyone's whole face, with one of his huge hands.

@KevinMKruse
As everyone dissects Jon McNaughton's "Trump Goes Fishin'" painting, let me point you to his masterpiece, "One Nation Under God."

And yes, I had to be talked out of discussing this at length in the epilogue of my last book.

1:58 PM - Apr 27, 2018


"One Nation Under God," references the line from the Pledge of Allegiance that is held up as deeply symbolic of intrinsic American religiosityóand which was added in 1953."

Emperor Carrot once, again, forgot that he was campaigning for someone else.

He started boasting about himself, and fully entered MAGA mode.

Trump was joined for his Saturday rally in Ohio by former White House communications director Hope Hicks.

SPOTTED at Morristown, NJ airport ahead of Air Force One departure for Trumpís Ohio rally: Hope Hicks


When the flight touched down at John Glenn Columbus International Airport, photographers captured Hicks descending the steps of the airplane in a sleeveless white midi dress and large, cat-eye sunglasses looking very much like Melania Trump. She also donned sky-high taupe heels and a Birkin bag, both favorites of the first lady.

Delaware County Fair Coliseum ? Heavily advertised rally, but did it take place ? Emperor Carrot did not go to the high school until Saturday evening, closed venue, gymnasium Olentangy Orange High School, Lewis Center.

Where was he hiding out ?

Standard Carrot Head rally- Invited more people than would be allowed inside, for the photo-op rally.

People watched Carrot Head outside, on a big screen.

More than a hundred protesters gathered outside the school to voice their opposition.

"We need to make America un-racist, unfastidious, un-ignorant making everybody madder. Everyone is welcome here; it's isn't just about white people, it's not just about people that agree with what you want them to. It's about equality and equity," said anti-Trump rally participator Tracy Mallory.

Protesters brandished signs reading "Lebron builds schools... Trump build cages" in response to the President's tweet about the former Cleveland Cavalier, which questioned the NBA player's intelligence.

Among the crowd was ECOT The Eagle, a mascot symbolizing the now non-existent online school which ended up owing the state $80 million in taxpayers dollars. Troy Balderson, who took $10,000 in campaign money from ECOT founder Bill Lager, donated the money to charity last June.

Protesters like Natashia Retz say it's time to impeach the 45th President and make America a better country again.

"I am tired of the racism and hatred that this President -- and I use that term loosely -- is putting on this country," said.

Stormy Daniels and Emperor Carrot Head, 90 miles, apart.Seperated by three counties in Ohio on Saturday.

In an odd twist of fate, Emperor Carrot Head will visited Ohio
to stump for a vile and corrupt candidate-
on the same day as Stormy Daniels, the adult entertainer
who Trump allegedly paid off to keep quiet about an affair
between the two. Daniels will be performing at a strip club
outside of Dayton.

It was a long week, for the White House.
Ohio is a desperate situation.

Last night, Emperor Carrot Head flew to New Jersey, back to his private property. Golf Sunday!

Petty and evil, all of his life.

Small hands, small heart, small mind.

Stormy Daniels had her rights abused.

A whistleblower provided local newspaper the Fayette Advocate with emails from the Columbus Police Department that seem to show officers planning to arrest Daniels days before she came to town.

https://splinternews.com/stormy-dani...ann-1827877570


Columbus City Attorney Zach Klein said the elements were not met in the charges and that is why the cases were tossed out.

Stormy Daniels just canceled her N.J. gig tonight. Here's why.

She did not board the jet.

Under Trump, ICE jails a journalist. Is this Russia?


August 9, 2018

ICE released Gutierrez Soto and his son, after seven months in custody - just hours before the judge's deadline to reveal the documents justifying their detention.

If ICE thought it could defend this, it wouldn't have let them go, says Penny Venetis, head of the Rutgers Law School International Human Rights Clinic, which stepped up to argue their case on free speech grounds.

Press club members obtained internal ICE emails that showed Gutierrez Soto was inexplicably added to a government target list for arrest, less than a month after President Trump's inauguration in 2017. This was before his asylum bid was even denied.


Their sudden release last month, thanks to the legal challenge from the Rutgers law clinic, means ICE will no longer have to reveal exactly why they were arrested, or why Gutierrez Soto was on a target list that his defense team says is normally reserved for criminals and fugitives.

ICE's media office in El Paso, Texas, where he was arrested, has refused to answer any of our questions about this case.

Emperor Carrot Head Blames D.C. For Cancellation Of Military Parade


August 17, 2018

Mayor Muriel Bowser is refuting claims claims from President Donald Trump that D.C. officials provided a "ridiculously high" estimate of the costs for a now-cancelled military parade.

Officials with the D.C. government say the city isnít to blame for high costs associated with the parade. According to one source, specific details of what the parade would entail were never shared with the city, so the $21.6 million D.C. provided recently in a projected budget is a pretty rough estimate.


The mayorís office said that all told, the parade would cost the city $21,644,813, with the largest costs going toward police presence and security. The federal government typically reimburses the city for events related to being in the nation's capital, like inaugurations and major first amendment demonstrations. The estimated $2.6 million cost for the recent white supremacist rally, for example, is expected to come out of the federal fund.


When asked about why D.C. may have been the subject of President Trumpís blame, the mayor said that ďhe has to be familiar with the facts of what it takes to support a national security event. Maybe heís angry with his own team that they canít pull off the parade by November, and he made the target Washington, D.C., and its taxpayers.

Emperor Carrot Head shouted, in order to be heard above the noisy helicopter.

Photo-ops, galore- but no news


gsgs comment-
Yeah, yeah. Working vacation excuse, was used, already, this month. So working weekend is the word ?/end sarcasm sequence

Now, I see why a Smart Alec journalists remarked that no furniture would remain, if (Emperor Carrot Head) leaves the White House.

WTF have they done to the White House ? Well, he has an excuse to skip town and hide out on private property. (If Obama...)

Emperor Carrot grandstanded, by arriving in Air Force 1 jet, at Gabreski Airport


"Trump and attendees discussed topics including the federal tax law that Trump signed in December, expansion of private health care options for veterans and deregulation efforts, according to a Republican National Committee spokeswoman."

Friday, USPS spokeswoman Christine Dugas confirmed mail delivery service was suspended in certain parts of Westhampton Beach and Southampton for security reasons after consulting with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the law enforcement branch of the postal service.

Another week, another "roundtable" to give credence to the lie that the tax payer must pick up the tab for travel costs for the weekly cash collection.


"The president arrived in Jersey from Long Island, where he spoke in the Hamptons before about 70 contributors to a political committee that raises money for his re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee. The event raised $3 million."

No, reporters and journalists were not allowed to hear what Emperor Carrot said.

Bloomberg's sources say that Trump will attend both a roundtable with supporters and a luncheon at Lorberís home in Southampton on Friday. Proceeds from the events will benefit Trump Victory, which is a joint committee for Trumpís 2020 campaign and the Republican National Committee. In addition to Nathan's, Lorber is also the chief executive officer of the Vector Group, which owns Douglas Elliman Realty and the fourth largest cigarette manufacturer in the country.

Last year, the NY Times reported that Trump has called Lorber one of his two best friends. In 1996, Trump and Lorber apparently traveled to Moscow together "to explore business opportunities." Trump also named Lorber chairman of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Councilís governing board and used him as an economic adviser during his presidential campaign. Another connection: Lorber's son also appeared as a judge on The Apprentice once.

More taxpayer cash will be wasted on Emperor Carrot's vanity


$34 million dollars *poof*


The report on the smaller planes comes after the White House announced last month that Boeing had been awarded a $3.9 billion contract to design and build two new planes to serve as Air Force One.

Trump has said that the new planes will be painted red, white and blue, a shift from the aircraftís current design.

ďAir Force One is going to be incredible,Ē Trump said in an interview last month. ďItís going to be the top of the line, the top in the world, and itís going to be red, white and blue. Which I think is appropriate.Ē

Dave Brown's UK political cartoon, features Trump as vintage 1979 Alien, with the Statue of Liberty standing in for Sigourney Weaver's Ellen Louise Ripley.


Written on Trump's Pinocchio nose, is the infamous line- Truth Is Not Truth

Trump's alien mouth portrayed by Rudy Giuliani, snaking his own split tongue onto the side of Ripley/SOL's face.

A Russian Bear, formed from Trump's hair, snarls at Ripley's/SOL's face.
