Media gone wilder

Former GOP congressman, and present barking mad loon, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough Wednesday reached new heights of attention trollopdom as he stated “would-be-dictator” President Trump would put him in jail if he could.

Nah, Joe. You don’t have the ratings to be put in the can. Probation, maybe.

Here’s what Scarborough said, “Trump has to be shown that there are boundaries. Our constitutional republic, literally, and the institutions in it, literally, are being challenged every single day by this would-be dictator. Let me say, that sounds tough, doesn’t it? You tell me.”

His seizure went on. Sadly, no one brought him his meds.

“Would Donald Trump not do whatever he could do if he could get away with it? Seriously. If he could arrest every journalist he didn’t like, if he could arrest us tomorrow? Let me ask you a question: do you think he would arrest us tomorrow? Do you think he would arrest the editor of the New York Times, the editor of the Washington Post, Jeff Bezos? Do you think he would arrest them tomorrow and throw them in jail to silence them?”

His cohost/wife backed him up. Then she painted his toenails a glossy pink.

American troops shoot back

U.S. military personnel blasted forces who took shots at one of their patrols in Syria Wednesday. While the exact identity of the enemy is not known, it’s likely it was an offshoot of the Islamic State group. American and Kurdish forces, much contrary to former conjecture, are still working together to keep radical Islamists from staging a resurgence in the area. There were no U.S. casualties, according to Syrian media, and one Islamist protestor was killed and another wounded as they tried to halt the American and Kurdish patrol.

Sanders is the left’s standard bearer

With the implosion of Liz Warren, Bernie Sanders now has the hard port side of the Dem field all to himself. Yes, the other candidates are leftists. But not like Sanders or Warren.

I mean, not even Warren had to hold a press conference to deny she was communist. Of course, he was lying.
