President Darkest Timeline just threatened the press again in the latest twist in our current Constitutional crisis


So, it’s nearly Upfronts week, and the networks are busily murdering all of their shitty shows and renewing their less shitty shows and TV news is flying at my face left and right and just when I think I have the most updated story up over on the Chron another god damned show is cancelled and the point is I DO NOT HAVE THE TIME TO HAVING TO BE CONSTANTLY CHECKING TWITTER TO SEE IF OUR COUNTRY IS LITERALLY ON FIRE OR NOT. SO STOP IT.


~deep breath~

Alright. So, unless you’ve moved out to the woods to avoid all of … this (and if you have moved out to the woods and you have room for one more, send me an email), on Tuesday Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey for reasons that it would be gracious to say were “unclear” at the time.

Now, anyone with eyeballs knew that Comey had testified to a Senate committee the week previous, where he said the thing that we all know: that there is an investigation into the Trump campaign’s connections to Russia. Additionally, according to The New York Times, Comey had just recently asked for more money and resources for the Russia investigation. This did not sit well with President Tittybaby, and within a few days Comey was fired.

But when the media asked why Comey was fired, the White House press stooges (who were hiding in bushes and getting eyerolled to filth) and Vice President Pence all had the same story: newly appointed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had recently sent Trump a memo suggesting that Comey be fired — and the LAUGHABLE REASON? Because Comey was so mean to Hillary Clinton during the election.

Except, that is not at all what happened and Rosenstein threatened to quit if the White House didn’t clear shit up IMMEDIATELY. So yesterday, President Blatant Liar sat down with Lester Holt where he said that actually what had happened was he had decided it was time to fire Comey, and the memo from Rosenstein had nothing to do with anything. In fact, directly from Trump’s mouth here is why Comey was fired:

He [Rosenstein] made a recommendation, he’s highly respected, very good guy, very smart guy. The Democrats like him, the Republicans like him. He made a recommendation. But regardless of [the] recommendation, I was going to fire Comey. Knowing there was no good time to do it!

And in fact when I decided to just do it I said to myself, I said, “You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a madeup story, it’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should’ve won.”

And the reason they should’ve won it is, the Electoral College is almost impossible for a Republican to win, it’s very hard, because you start off at such a disadvantage. So everybody was thinking they should have won the election. This was an excuse for having lost an election.


And if that’s not enough, his spare press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said this yesterday during the White House Press Briefing:

Look, again, the point is, we want [the Russia investigation] to come to its conclusion.  We want it to come to its conclusion with integrity.  And we think that we’ve actually, by removing Director Comey, taken steps to make that happen.


~deep breath~

So, this morning, President Traitor woke up and turned on cable news and was apparently shocked! just shocked! that his ADMITTING TO OBSTRUCTING AN INVESTIGATION INTO WHETHER OR NOT HIS CAMPAIGN COLLUDED WITH THE MOTHERFUCKING RUSSIANS DIDN’T MAKE THE STORY GO AWAY. You guys, he actually believed this would make the story disappear or possibly change into an attack on the Democrats for losing the election:

But here’s the kicker: 6 minutes after this asshole was whining about the “Fake Media,” he LITERALLY TWEETS THAT HIS PRESS STAFF CAN’T BE EXPECTED TO TELL THE TRUTH before threatening to cancel press briefings.

ooooo i can't

Then, President Kompromat tweeted this little nugget:

So, to recap: our President fired the head of the FBI so that the investigation into whether or not his campaign colluded with Russia to manipulate the election would come to an end. But then the White House press corps were given a completely different story about why Comey was fired (a story that was a complete fabrication) which President Putin-Fluffer himself later contradicted. Then, when the media asked why on earth they should believe ANYTHING that comes out of the White House Press Office since they are a bunch of lying liars who CONSTANTLY LIE, Trump called them all Fake News, threatened to shut down press briefings altogether before threatening the former FBI director for good measure.

This is not normal. This is not normal. This is not normal.

And do not look away.

In Other TV News

I’m not posting this for any particular reason.

Here’s your reminder that Melissa McCarthy is hosting Saturday Night Live (from the “dumbest person in broadcasting” no less):

Saturday Night Live cut this decent Bachelorette sketch for time last week, probably because it didn’t give Chris Pine a chance to sing.

Meanwhile, Chris Harrison sent this email out to the staff at Bachelor in Paradise:

But Steve Harvey has no regrets and would do it again.

Phaedra Parks is now claiming she was set up by the producers of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Ok.



Check out the cancellations and other renewals over on this post. It’s being constantly updated as information rolls in.
