Jim Carrey Shares Cartoon Theory Of Devolution About Donald Trump’s Supporters
“Let’s remember this year that according to very sound scientific evidence, human beings evolved from apes and not the other way around.”

By Lee Moran


Jim Carrey appeared to offer up his own theory on the evolution of supporters of President Donald Trump with his latest politically themed cartoon.

The actor-artist depicted what looks like a chimpanzee wearing blue glasses in the art shared online Friday. The classic illustration of human evolution is reversed in the animal’s mind to show a MAGA cap-wearing human turning back into an ape:

“Let’s remember this year that according to very sound scientific evidence, human beings evolved from apes and not the other way around,” he captioned the image.

Carrey, whose anti-Trump art has been widely documented by HuffPost in recent months, posted this non-artistic critique of the man he regularly dubs ”#PresidentNeverWas” a day earlier:

In conjunction with the efforts to directly address the abuses of the Deep Swamp filths, the Trump administration has advised the general public to be prepared against an “increasing threats — whether severe natural disasters, cyber-physical attacks, electromagnetic events, or some combination”, which “present new challenges for protecting the national power grid and recovering quickly from a catastrophic power outage.”

US transport security workers forced to work free during shutdown call in sick
« Reply #1697 on: January 07, 2019, 08:30:13 AM »

US Transportation Security Administration employees are calling in sick in protest over being forced to work without pay during the government shutdown, which shows no sign of ending after 14 days.

After a recent CNN report that call-ins have shot up, more than doubling in some cases and affecting four major airports, TSA and its parent agency initially denied the problem existed, and are now downplaying its scale.

ALSO ON RT.COMTransport Security head says armed surveillance of innocent flying Americans ‘makes a lot of sense’TSA union officials claim the call-ins are not an organized protest, explaining that workers are being called out to work at second jobs as the shutdown begins to bite. But federal officials reportedly believe the “blue flu” – TSA uniforms are blue – has all the hallmarks of a coordinated protest against the shutdown.

TSA employees are considered “essential” – meaning even though their funding has run dry, they have to report to work anyway. Of the approximately 800,000 employees affected by the shutdown, about 420,000 are considered “essential” and forced to keep working.

A Department of Homeland Security spokesperson initially denied there was any “sickout” problem at all.

🤡 Trump’s polls sag amid wall fight

Trump’s polls sag amid wall fight
By Jordan Fabian - 01/14/19 07:02 PM EST


President Trump on Monday rejected a proposal from a top legislative ally to reopen the government, even as a raft of polling suggested he is losing the battle for public opinion with Democrats over his demand for a border wall.

Trump’s dismissal of the plan to end the partial shutdown offered by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) signals the White House believes it can pressure Democrats into a compromise. But Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), buoyed by the polls, has shown no sign of budging.

Democrats introduced two more resolutions on Monday to reopen the government, doubling down on their strategy of moving measures to end the shutdown without paying for a wall on the Mexican border.

Graham had floated the idea of ending the government shutdown for three weeks to pursue a broader immigration deal. But Trump said he turned down the offer, which resembles a Democratic proposal to reopen government in order to restart border security talks.

“I’m not interested. I want to get it solved. I don’t want to just delay it. I want to get it solved,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday morning

Graham’s offer came as Republicans in Washington have grown increasingly concerned as the shutdown dragged into a record 24th day and polls show most of the country blames Trump for the impasse.

A Washington Post–ABC News poll taken Jan. 8–11 shows 53 percent of Americans say Trump and congressional Republicans are mostly to blame for the shutdown, while 29 percent point the finger at Democrats.

And a Rasmussen tracking poll on Monday found Trump with a 43 percent approval rating among likely voters, a figure that has steadily declined, it said, since his speech last week on the wall from the Oval Office.

The influential Drudge Report led its website Monday with the headline “POLL TRUMP APPROVAL LOWEST IN YEAR” in red lettering, in what could be read as a signal to the White House about political damage from the shutdown fight.

Trump has flirted with declaring a national emergency to build the wall, a move that would circumvent Congress and end the shutdown.

But a poll from The Hill–Harris X conducted Jan. 12–13 found 69 percent oppose the idea.

Regardless, Trump appears to believe he has the upper hand with Democrats and can force them to back to the negotiating table.

Speaking to the American Farm Bureau Federation in New Orleans, Trump declared, “When it comes to keeping the American people safe, I will never, ever back down.”

Trump insisted the wall is needed to stop what he calls a humanitarian “crisis” at the U.S.-Mexico border and accused Democrats of rejecting his funding request because they do not want to hand him a win ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

“We’re dealing against people who think they can stop me from building the wall,” he said. “They think that’s a good thing for 2020.”

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told reporters Trump is willing to go around congressional leaders and negotiate with “rank-and-file” Democrats, suggesting he would target moderates representing districts he won in 2016.

“I would ask a number of them what they think, because I have been reading their regional and local press back home, and what they say there is quite different than some of the national coverage,” she said. “They are telling their constituents: ‘Hey, I’m for some kind of fencing or barrier.’”

An administration official later confirmed to The Hill that two different groups of Republican and Democratic lawmakers have been invited to the White House for separate meetings Wednesday and Thursday for talks.

But there is no indication that backbench House Democrats are willing to break with Pelosi, who has refused Trump’s demand for $5.7 billion in wall funding, and negotiate directly with the president.

There were signs late Monday of a bipartisan group forming in the Senate to find a way to end the shutdown, but that effort does not appear to involve Trump.

Some Trump allies have become frustrated with the White House’s handling of the shutdown, worried the fight is slipping away from the president.

Trump’s push for the wall, which has included an Oval Office address, a border visit and a daily haranguing of Democrats on Twitter, has thus far not moved the opposite party or the public in his direction.

It is a battle Trump can ill-afford to lose heading into his reelection race, some of his supporters say.

“Trump’s biggest appeal to his voters was his willingness to not only fight, but win those fights, and so a loss on what is his biggest campaign promise would be a catastrophe going into 2020,” said one GOP consultant, who requested anonymity to discuss the dynamics.

Trump seemed aware of those stakes during his speech in New Orleans, calling the wall “only one of many things that I promised” in 2016.

He highlighted other accomplishments he could sell to voters next year, such as the tax-cut bill, the repeal of ObamaCare’s individual mandate and the expansion of U.S. oil and gas production.

But Trump also acknowledged the wall is crucial, saying “if you don’t have that barrier, there’s not a thing you can do” to stop illegal immigration and drug trafficking.

There is a sense on both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue that growing pain caused by the shutdown could force the hands of Trump and Democrats to reach an agreement.

Absences by Transportation Security Administration (TSA) staff, who are among the 800,000 federal workers who missed their first paycheck on Friday, caused headaches for travelers across the country on Monday.

Waits for security screenings at the nation’s busiest airport, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, lasted more than an hour, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Photos and videos showed lines snaking throughout the terminal.

“Delays at airports across the country today because of TSA staffing issues are a direct result of the Trump Shutdown,” House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) said in a statement. “I hope President Trump realizes that being responsible for the longest government shutdown in history is no badge of honor—it will have untold negative consequences for months to come.”

IMHO Trumpsky will stay the course as long as his Fox News base of 30% of so, stay with him. When they abandon him then he will get real scary. I think they will only abandon him when the economy tanks. Who knows when that will happen (anybody here ;)).

A 30% Approval Rating will not do wonders for the Repugnants chances in the 2020 Elections.

The Dimwits who voted for Trumpovetsky are beginning to see what their President is really like.  This is a good thing.

Statistically speaking, no.

Had they voted, chances are they would have broken down by percentage in the same numbers that did vote.

I don't buy that argument. It doesn't make sense, based on the demographics. What's your next excuse?

🤡 Burger King trolls Trump for misspelling hamburgers in tweet

Burger King trolls Trump for misspelling hamburgers in tweet

DETROIT — Burger King is needling President Donald Trump for his tweet about ordering more than 1,000 “hamberders” for the Clemson University Tigers’ visit to the White House after winning the college football championship.

The spelling error was quickly corrected. But Burger King jumped in with a tweet of its own: “Due to a large order placed yesterday, we’re all out of hamberders. Just serving hamburgers today.”

Burger King said its tweet was all in good fun, but some marketing experts think the move was unwise.

Laura Ries, an Atlanta-based marketing consultant, said she understands companies wanting to be part of the social media conversation. But they should keep the message positive, not mocking.

“It’s totally the wrong tone. It’s not funny. It’s mean,” she said. “No matter what you think of the president, it’s still the president.”

Burger King responded that it “has a pulse on pop culture,” and wants to be part of trending topics. It also said it was proud that its burgers were served to the football team.

“We like to playfully joke around with what the internet and news outlets are saying, but never to be mean spirited,” the company said in a statement.

Burger King isn’t the only company to troll Trump on Twitter. Last week, Columbia Sportswear Co. tweeted a message from its CEO: “Make America’s parks open again.” And in 2017, Smirnoff vodka had billboards that read: “Made in America. But we’d be happy to talk about our ties to Russia under oath.”

Companies that veer into politics take a risk of alienating customers or even Trump himself. Burger King might not be served at the next White House feast, Ries said.

Some Twitter followers criticized Burger King. But others liked the tweet so much they celebrated with lunch at Burger King on Tuesday.

Robert Passikoff, a marketing consultant and founder of Brand Keys Inc., suspects the tweet will have no lasting impact. Sometimes, he said, it’s critical for a brand to use Twitter to engage with customers and change attitudes, like when it’s trying to recover from a food poisoning scare. Burger King’s tweet doesn’t have that kind of weight, he said.

Get a life Laura Ries. This, show some respect to the president because he is "still the president" might work for the Fox News base but it is such bullshit. He shows no respect for anyone and therefore deserves NONE. As a marketing consultant maybe she should be recommending that Fox News run anti-dementia drugs ads non-stop all the time. That's what Fox viewers need IMHO.

I remember well the time when the POTUS got respect because of the office. It was the case right up until the rise of Rush Limbaugh.

I respected the Office of POTUS until Kennedy got shot.  If the CIA doesn't respect the office, why should I? ???  :icon_scratch:
