Texas Has a Growing Homeless Problem, and California May Shoulder a Good Deal of Blame

Westlake Legal Group AP_18152597516332-620x309 Texas Has a Growing Homeless Problem, and California May Shoulder a Good Deal of Blame Texas San Francisco republicans progressives News los angeles immigration homeless Front Page Stories feces Featured Story Drugs disease democrats California austin Allow Media Exception

The issue of homelessness in Texas has been on the rise, specifically in its capital of Austin.

According to the Washington Post, staunch Democrats in Austin have expressed a desire to switch parties purely out of the way the city has handled homelessness, which lately, includes allowing them to sleep anywhere they’d like:

But as Paul, 50, sprawled out shirtless on the sidewalk on a 100-degree day, shop owner Craig Staley stood a few feet away on Congress Avenue reconsidering his party affiliation.

“I got two emails last month from customers who said, ‘I can’t go to your store anymore because it smells like urine,’” said Staley, who operates Royal Blue Grocery. “I am a Democrat at heart; I have been in Austin, Texas, for over 30 years. But I am telling you, I am feeling a lot more red these days when it comes to my business.”

Over the past couple of months, Governor Greg Abbott has been giving the issue his personal attention and considering actions to take against the Democratic leadership of Austin for its allowance of homeless people to take over the streets. As he does this, Austin Mayor Steve Adler is going to California to talk to leaders who specialize in creating the problem for advice.

In fact, the policies surrounding the homeless in Austin look a lot like the kind seen in San Francisco and Los Angeles, both of which have a level of homeless so extreme that medieval diseases are making a comeback. This is on top of the mounting drug problem and excess of trash that litters the streets. In San Francisco, the homeless problem also comes with seeing an inordinate amount of used needles littering the sidewalk and a feces problem.

Austin seems to be heading in the same direction.

“They thought it would be compassionate and not a big deal, but it has been an absolute disaster for this city,” said Matt Mackowiak, chairman of the GOP party of Travis county according to WaPo. “This is our best example of [liberal] overreach, so we have been very strategic focusing on this issue.”

According to Austin’s homeless, California may be partly to blame for the rising tide.

“They said there is a waiting list of at least six months,” Curtis Underwood, a homeless man said. “I guess I need to get a job, but the rent is so expensive because all the people from California are moving here.”

As businesses move to Texas, it brings with them their coastal employees. The rent skyrockets, driving people into the streets. However, it may not just the economy doing so either. The rate at which the homeless are growing is monumental, and it may be that the homeless in California are hearing about the opportunities in Texas and are heading there themselves.

They’re heading there with the help of the state of California, no less.

According to a 2017 article from The Guardian, California has been bussing out its homeless problem for some time, essentially paying for bus tickets out of the state and sending them elsewhere, using America’s national bussing companies as a valve to release pressure on itself. Texas is likely one of them, especially with its business boom giving out of state officials the idea that warmer climes and better business opportunities may give them a good chance of getting back on their feet.

There has yet to be a hard count on the number of homeless people California has bussed to Texas, but we do know that California’s impoverished do like to migrate to the Lone Star State. A 2017 article from the Sacramento Bee shows that when it comes to those in California who live below the poverty line, most choose Texas:

The leading destination for those leaving California is Texas, with about 293,000 economically disadvantaged residents leaving and about 137,000 coming for a net loss of 156,000 from 2005 through 2015. Next up are states surrounding California; in order, Arizona, Nevada and Oregon.

All told, California lost about 260,000 economically disadvantaged residents to the 10 states with the lowest cost of living during that time period, compared to a net gain of about 40,000 from the 10 states (other than California) with the highest cost of living.

It’s not unreasonable to assume many of the homeless would choose a bus ticket out of town for the greener, job-filled pastures of Texas.

So we have Californians moving here to drive up the rent, Texas Democrats getting advice on how to handle it, and California likely bussing its homeless to Texas.

A New York Times Reporter Solicited 30K From Jeffrey Epstein While ABC Killed Stories From His Victims

FILE- In this July 30, 2008 file photo, Jeffrey Epstein is shown in custody in West Palm Beach, Fla. Labor Secretary nominee Alexander Acosta is expected to face questions at his Senate confirmation hearing about an unusual plea deal he oversaw for Epstein, a Florida billionaire and sex offender, as U.S. attorney in Miami. (AP Photo/Palm Beach Post, Uma Sanghvi, File)/Palm Beach Post via AP)

Want to know why the Epstein story has no real legs when it comes to investigate reporting from the major networks and newspapers outside of trying to tie him to Donald Trump? You are about to find out why.

For decades, Epstein ran in crowds with some of the wealthiest and most influential people in the country. In terms of elected officials, that meant he had an unusually close relationship with Bill Clinton, even while he was president and to the point of having a painting of Clinton in a dress hanging on his mansion’s wall. It didn’t stop there though. Several other Democrat party politicians have been implicated as well, including accusations of being on his pedophile island and being given girls that we now know were basically sex slaves.

If it seems like I’m only focusing on his connections to Democrats, that’s because those are the only really pervasive connections (i.e. people who went to his island, etc.) we’ve found out about. Don’t be gaslit by the media, the circles Epstein ran in were not Republican circles. Even to the extent he knew Donald Trump, Trump was not palling around with Newt Gingrich at the time. There’s a reason he was going to dinners at the Clinton White House but never made it back when George W. Bush took over.

Because the circles he ran in were predominantly populated with rich, liberal Manhattan types, that meant he had many relationships within the mainstream media establishment as well. ABC’s George Stephanopoulos dined with Epstein as late as 2010, which was after his convictions. The former Clinton crony would claim he hadn’t done his due diligence on who Epstein was, which is a laughable assertion from a supposed news man.

Epstein’s perversion with the media didn’t stop there though. Much like Harvey Weinstein, he was able to wield his influence to affect coverage. NPR has a new report which details some of what went on. It’s very in depth, but I’ll try to summarize the findings here.

We’ll start with ABC News first.

In 2015, the ABC News team of Amy Robach and Jim Hill secured an interview with Giuffre. In a sequence of events confirmed by the network, producers paid for Giuffre and her family to fly from Colorado, where they lived, to New York City and put them up at the Ritz-Carlton hotel on Central Park South. Robach and her news crew interviewed Giuffre on tape for more than an hour about Epstein and his entourage.

“At the time, in 2015, Epstein was walking around a free man, comparing his criminal behavior to stealing a bagel,” Giuffre writes in an email to NPR. “I really wanted a spotlight shone on him and the others who acted with him and enabled his vile and shameless conduct against young girls and young women.”

“I viewed the ABC interview as a potential game-changer,” she writes. “Appearing on ABC with its wide viewership would have been the first time for me to speak out against the government for basically looking the other way and to describe the anger and betrayal victims felt.”

The story never aired. And Giuffre has said she was never directly told why.

ABC has still never given an explanation for why they burned the story, which would have exposed the depravity of Epstein’s actions long before he was charged again in 2019. Sources say that Epstein’s lawyers contacted ABC but when have threats from lawyers ever scared off a news operation the size of ABC from reporting on an interview with a witness? They would not be liable for anything she said in such a case and they would have known that. Yet, they killed the story anyway and Epstein went right back to abusing women for another four years.

The New York Times also is implicated.

Yet Stewart was not the editors’ first choice to interview Epstein further.

Initially, they had asked Landon Thomas Jr., a veteran financial correspondent who had been at the Times for 16 years.

Thomas knew Epstein fairly well — having first written about the financier, back in 2002, just before he joined the paper. Thomas had considered him a valued source ever since, even after Epstein’s release from jail for sex offenses. Just how valued turned out to be a problem for the reporter and the paper…

…But Thomas flagged a problem. He told his editors Epstein had been a great source for years and had become something of a friend as well. How close? Thomas had solicited a $30,000 contribution from Epstein for a Harlem cultural center, he told them.

This reporter had gotten so close to Epstein that he solicited a $30,000 donation from him. The safe assumption is that Epstein saw the money as a payoff for good coverage and good coverage he would receive. The man tasked with reporting on Epstein would pursue none of the sordid details of his sexual abuse scandals.

NPR also notes Vanity Fair’s killing of stories dealing with Epstein’s abuse of underage girls. One example involved a woman named Maria and her then 15 year old sister. They told Vanity Fair that Epstein had lured them to his ranch in New Mexico and sexually exploited them. That’s when Epstein showed up at the magazine’s offices.

And so that morning when Epstein had materialized at the magazine’s offices, he was there to press Carter not to devote any attention to Epstein’s apparent interest in very young women.

“He was torturing Graydon,” says John Connolly, then a Vanity Fair contributing editor, who reported on crime and scandal.

Epstein beseeched Carter and berated him, Connolly says, that morning and subsequently, in a flood of phone calls. Epstein denied to Carter any misconduct and wanted him to steer away from the subject.

In March 2003, Vanity Fair did publish Ward’s piece. Titled “The Talented Mr. Epstein,” it took a tough look at Epstein’s lavish lifestyle and questioned the origins of his fortune.

It did not report the Farmers’ accusations of abuse.

In the end, no mention of the allegations of sexual misconduct made the story. Epstein had successfully covered himself again.

It’s stories like these that make clear why Epstein was able to get away with what he did for so long. The relationships he had in social circles and media circles were unethical and completely improper. Even today, you see almost no investigative effort from the major media networks and papers to uncover just how deep this goes. Why? Because they know they’d likely be implicated. As much as the left wants this to just be about being at parties with Donald Trump almost 30 years ago, the most perverse connections hit way too close to home for the liberal New York elite.

After Slamming Fox for Hiring Sarah Sanders, CNN Jumps the Shark and Hires Disgraced FBI Official Andrew McCabe

Yesterday, Tater and his hirsute minime excited each other into an orgasmic frenzy over former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders being hired by Fox News. Their tiny fists of fury were flailing about because you apparently allowed to have anyone who actually knows anything they are talking about on staff as a contributor according to CNN’s policy and having someone who does know what they’re talking about was perceived as being unfair. My colleague, Sister Toldjah, covered their righteous indignation.

All of this is pretty rich coming from a network that pushed the Russia Hoax for hundreds of hours and basically let Michael Avenatti live in their studio:

Apparently, there is no sense of irony–or shame–remaining at CNN because they’ve now announced the hiring of disgraced, fired former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. I SWEAR I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP.

Just to review the bidding. McCabe was in open and notorious violation of the Hatch Act while serving as James Comey’s catchfart. He appeared in his wife’s campaign literature. His bio was included in her file when she was interviewed by the VA Democrat apparatus as a potential state senate candidate. He used his official FBI email to pimp his wife’s candidacy. He was at ground zero when the Steele dossier was passed off as something more that political pornography to justify a FISA warrant on Carter Page. He authorized leaks to the press about the Clinton investigation. He was central to the decision to whitewash the investigation of Hillary Clinton and he lied to IG investigators about his role in that decision. McCabe appears to have been a central figure in launching the Russia Hoax investigation as a way of damaging the incoming Trump administration.

With that kind of bio and personal ethics, McCabe will feel right at home at CNN.

Democrats Eat Their Own…Again

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-08-01-at-6.55.15-AM Democrats Eat Their Own…Again Uncategorized Rush Limbaugh republicans Rep Tulsi Gabbard Politics Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception #KamalaHarrisDestroyed
Is this Bernie Sanders Part Deux? Over at American Thinker, Monica Showalter has a piece out showcasing what appears to be yet another case of the Democrat Establishment slapping down someone who steps out of line. It seems that according to rapidly changing debate qualification rules, Democrat Candidate Tulsi Gabbard might not qualify for the next Democrat Presidential debate, despite having the requisite poll numbers and more than enough discrete, individual donors. From the article

Iconoclastic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard did the unforgiveable in the eyes of the hidebound Democratic Party establishment: She knocked down one their favorites, Kamala Harris. 

Ms. Showalter points to a Real Clear Politics article for some of the detail, but her analysis is what really hits the mark. She points out that this is obviously retribution against Representative Gabbard (a combat vet) for taking out, in just 30 seconds during the last Democratic Presidential debate, who many believe is the Obamas’ chosen successor, Kamala Harris.

This raises the question of if this was ‘punishment’ for that ‘little misdeed’ around Kamala Harris at the last debate. Nobody messes with Kamala, or so it seems, so now Tulsi must pay a price.

Showalter provides two additional major clues for her position.

One, the herd is not really being culled for Debate Three.
Democrats are still going to be taking Marianne Williamson into the debate as well, along with this lengthy list of pipsqueaks and other obscure characters listed below. Just not that woman in the white pant suit who is remembered for the debate’s most memorable moment in Debate Two, the takedown of Kamala Harris.

Two, Google seems to have already done a number on Gabbard, taking down her paid-for campaign ads during the first debate when Internet viewers’ interest in her spiked to the highest levels of all the campaign. Google, most of the reporting has neglected to note, is brimming with former Obama administration operatives. Democrats, the pillars, the money, the establishment. Might that suggest some sort of fix in for Gabbard as well? It’s pretty obvious something is going on.

I believe Ms. Showalter is spot on. The question is, will Bernie Sanders be a man and step up? Will he point out this travesty and yet another example of Establishment Democrats picking the nominee over the objections of their voters?

CNN Wastes No Time In Lying About New Border Regulations

Westlake Legal Group CNN-620x280 CNN Wastes No Time In Lying About New Border Regulations Trump administration Politics New Regulations media bias Illegal Immigration Ice Front Page Stories Front Page flores agreement Featured Story facilities donald trump democrats CNN CBP border patrol border

If their lips are moving, or in this case, if their B roll is rolling.

On Wednesday, the Trump administration released new regulations to supplant the disastrous Flores Agreement, which led to family separation because it did not allow parents and children to stay together after 20 days while their cases are adjudicated. This is common sense and should have been done a long time ago. There is no reason for any child to not be able to stay with their parent while at the same time allowing the legal process to play out in a way that makes sense. Simply releasing everyone was not a solution and only exacerbated the problem as the cartels literally setup child rental services so people could use them to gain access to the interior. Such loopholes also served as a magnet for more to make the dangerous journey.

Given these new regulations will end family separation, you’d think the media would be overjoyed. They’ve spent years at this point decrying the sending of kids to live with relatives while their family’s asylum claims are heard.

But nope. Because everything Trump does must be attacked, even when he’s doing what they originally claimed they wanted (i.e. no family separation), so the media are now saying that keeping families together is even worse…because reasons.

Here’s how CNN dishonestly handled the news per the Daily Caller.

CNN anchor Jim Sciutto told viewers during the 10 am hour that the Flores agreement means families can be held a maximum of 20 days “in the facilities you see here.” The program then cut to a shot of an El Paso, Texas Border Patrol facility featuring migrants behind chain link fences and wearing foil blankets.

The clear implication of the CNN segment was that the family units could now be detained in such Border Patrol facilities beyond 20 days with the new DHS rule.

However, the Flores agreement applies to ICE facilities, not facilities run by Border Patrol.

In fact, family units stay in Border Patrol facilities for a relatively short amount of time — hours or a few days, depending on various factors — before they are either released or transferred to an ICE family residential center.

“Right now families average less than four days from apprehension to release or transfer to ICE. That is a reasonable average at current flow levels and with current operational procedures in place,” a DHS official explained to the Caller.

The residential centers that children and their family members would actually stay in for the duration of their court proceedings look very different than the CNN segment suggested, containing various amenities and programs intended for long-term stays.

In short, CNN announced the new rules but then showed B roll all day of CBP processing facilities instead of the real ICE dormitories these families would actually be staying in. The reason CNN is doing this is to spread the false impression that children are going to be held in cages for weeks on end, something that doesn’t happen.

Here’s the reality. When an illegal immigrant enters the country, they are often entering in remote, inhospitable areas. CBP have to detain them and hold them until they can be vetted and entered into the system. That means a few days in a border processing facility. These locations can not realistically be expected to be comfortable given their locations and the limited resources available. Families of illegal immigrants (or even single illegal immigrants) do not stay in these places for long though. They are quickly moved out to ICE housing, which includes all necessities and many amenities. There is nothing inhumane about keeping families together in these places.

Yet, because our politics are just garbage these days, the media and the left refuse to give credit where credit is due. Instead they mislead, lie, and present false impressions of what’s really going on. For example, the paper of record framed this as the Trump administration depriving illegal immigrants of basic needs because the Flores agreement supposedly guarantees those. This despite the fact that the new regulations actually go beyond the Flores agreement. The dishonesty is just mind-numbing.

The true game here is simple. The only response the left in this country want to the border problem is catch and release. It doesn’t matter that such a policy causes mass chaos on the border and promotes further human trafficking. All that matters is politics and CNN is one of the worst offenders.

Not Even Bill Kristol Is Serious About Joe Walsh Giving President Trump a Primary Challenge

Westlake Legal Group joe-walsh-620x414 Not Even Bill Kristol Is Serious About Joe Walsh Giving President Trump a Primary Challenge republicans Politics pierre omidyar Joe Walsh Illinois Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Bill Kristol Allow Media Exception 2020 republican primary

Joe Walsh speaking at CPAC by Gage Skidmore, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

 

All the rage among Bulwarkians and NeverTrumpers is the idea that they will recruit someone to primary President Trump. The main candidate apparently is Joe Walsh. That would be the former congressman and talk show host, not the Real Joe Walsh

Joe Walsh, a conservative radio show host and former Republican congressman from Illinois, is expected to announce he is running for president as early as this weekend, presenting President Trump with a challenger from the right his critics hope will weaken the president in the 2020 election.

Mr. Walsh is being encouraged by William Kristol, the conservative writer and former editor of the now defunct magazine The Weekly Standard. Mr. Kristol has been a “Never Trump” Republican since Mr. Trump was elected in 2016 and has been working hard over the past year to recruit someone to run against him.

Mr. Kristol said Mr. Walsh’s comfort with the in-your-face format of conservative talk radio makes him a potentially more effective combatant against Mr. Trump than someone like William Weld, the genteel former governor of Massachusetts, whose own primary challenge to the president has gained little traction.

“He has a different appeal than Bill Weld,” Mr. Kristol said. “The fact that he was a Tea Party congressman who voted for Trump in 2016 gives him an ability to speak to Republican primary voters that ‘Never Trumpers’ like me don’t have.”

Just a few facts are in order.

Walsh ran for Congress as a moderate and a pro-abort. His challenge to Trump is not from “the right,” to the extent that Walsh’s as yet unannounced campaign is a challenge, it is straight from the GOPe types.

Other than making a career out of hating Trump, it is difficult to see what Walsh brings to the table that would attract anyone not on Pierre Omidyars’ payroll. Walsh won one of his three elections. So it isn’t like he’s a terribly successful or astute politician. If you are looking for some kind of break from Trump’s checkered personnel life, well, you won’t find Walsh banging porn stars but, according to he “watchdog group” Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW)–I’m only using them because for a while it was fashionable here to quote whatever bullsh** they were throwing at Trump and billing them as some high minded civic group instead to the leftwing suckweasels that they are:

Court records show Rep. Walsh was ordered to pay his ex-wife $2,134 a month in child support beginning in November 2005, but he made only partial payments through March 2008. Between April 2008 and December 2010, Rep. Walsh allegedly made no payments at all, leaving him with a debt of $117,437.25. The congressman failed to disclose this obligation on his personal financial disclosure forms.

Rep. Walsh’s reports of his income have been inconsistent. He told a reporter his 2009 income was between $30,000 and $40,000, and he reported about $65,000 to the IRS. On his financial disclosure forms for the first 9 months of the year, he claimed $21,000 in earned income with an additional $20,000-$60,000 in other income. On the other hand, he told his ex-wife he had no income, and in a 2011 court filing reported just $29,000 for the year.

Oddly enough, Rep. Walsh also paid $3,300 per month in rent in 2009, totaling almost $40,000 for the year, which would have left him penniless or in debt. Nevertheless, Rep. Walsh still managed to loan his election campaign $35,500 between November 2009 and August 2010.

The freshman congressman has a long history of financial problems, including tax liens, lawsuits regarding failure to pay debts, and a foreclosure on a condominium.

So you have all the bad stuff but of the most banal and uninteresting kind.

If you objected to Trump and his flirtation with birtherism…

racism, you say…

Essentially what you have is a very weak retail politician with more baggage and less support that President Trump.

Nope. Whatever the question is, Joe Walsh is not the answer. This is, at best, a publicity stunt and given who is involved, you know there has to be grifting out the wazoo. But don’t worry. Bill Kristol has cast a wide net and there are more waiting in the wings.

Here’s How Hard Democrats and the Media Are Rooting for a Recession

If you’ve noticed a strong uptick in doom and gloom about the economy lately, you aren’t imagining it.

With the Mueller report blowing up on the pad, Democrats and the media needed a new strategy and they think they’ve found something. Specifically, they’ve honed in on two things: Making the case that Donald Trump is chaotic and rooting for a recession. The latter they are hoping hits next year, just in time for the 2020 election.

How hard are they rooting for a recession? This hard.

It’s as if the talking points went out and they are reciting them in unison. It doesn’t matter that unemployment is low and the fundamentals of the economy are strong, not perfect, but still strong. The left have decided the best thing to do is will a recession into happening, and make no mistake, a constant barrage of negative coverage can shake markets and employers.

Of course, a recession would profoundly hurt normal Americans but those in Acela corridor don’t care about that. They’ve got their big bank accounts and recession proof jobs. Seeing an economic slowdown is a price they are willing to pay, forget the collateral damage. Getting rid of Trump is the only thing that matters.

I’ll also point out the immense hypocrisy and inconsistency of Democrats and their media allies talking down the current economy while they continually tried to prop up the slowest recovery on record under Barack Obama. This is how it always happens. When a Democrat is president, any news is good news. When it’s a Republican, even good reports must be spun into negatives. Everything bad that happens under Democrats is headlined as being “unexpected.” You’ve seen the song and dance before.

In this case, even if a recession comes, it’s likely not coming for another 2 years or so (normal cycles dictate we will have another recession eventually). There’s no reason to be beating this drum right now except to try to suppress market and consumer confidence, perhaps speeding up the process. Nothing we are seeing from the left or the media is genuine concern or honest analysis. It’s purely politics and should be treated as such.

Rob Reiner has been struck with Trump Derangement Syndrome a bit harder than most. From time to time, he simply can’t help himself and he feels he must take to twitter to explain to his followers, once again, why he hates President Trump. The tension builds inside of him until he can no longer stand it, then he explodes. The stress leaves his body and he’s okay for a little while…until the pressure returns once more.

Reiner reached that point again on Wednesday and fired off the following tweet.

We’ve seen it before: A guy goes into the White House with dark hair and a youthful sheen, comes out a few years later with hair of white and a face like an old catcher’s mitt.

The presidency ages you.

But what of Donald Trump’s unfathomably good looks? Why, put him in a pair of trunks, and the guy could pass for nineteen.

Chris “I Ain’t A-Fredo” Cuomo has an explanation for the President’s Michael-J-Fox-like perennial good looks a few years in:

He doesn’t care about you. Or me. Or anyone.

And when your heart has no feeling, it’s a stress-free ride, Jack!

That’s right: Chris has cracked the code on Trump’s age-defyin’ ways. The veritable Neutrogena model is just a psychopath.

Hence, his pool-boy good looks.

Chris is coming off the heels of just having said some paralyzingly foolish things that made national news (here). It seems like he might wanna sit it out for a bit. But he’s come out with this newest installment quicker than Twilight 2 hit the silver screen.

On CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time this week — a show which, in terms of network censure, has suffered not at all since the host told a man, “I’ll f***ing throw you down these stairs like a f***ing punk” and “I’ll f***ing wreck your sh**” — Mario Cuomo’s younger brother put up a side-by-side comparison of Bill, Barack, and Donald.

Chris provided his expert analysis:

“I mean come on, look at Clinton’s hair — went white. George W. Bush looks like he got a beat down. Obama looks like his own grandfather. … This is a very hard job because of the stress they carry with them.”

Has Chris never heard of Clairol? Some candidates douse themselves with it when running for office.

On to Trump:

“Now let’s look at this president. It’s been almost three years since Trump won the presidency. He looks exactly the same. His hair is — I don’t know what’s going on with that. But he may do things that presidents in the past haven’t done to augment their physical reality.”

??

How does he know what all the presidents haven’t done, when he doesn’t know what this president has done?

Either way, here we go…

Explicación:

“But it could also be he doesn’t care the way others have? He seems content to vent and foment problems. … He doesn’t deal with the trying business of compromise. He chases the easy slumber of blaming others and sowing the seeds of discord and division.”

Chris also offered, “I argue this: The President told us a very important truth today. Listen.”

He then played a clip of Trump being asked if issues with China keep him up at night. The Donald replied: “Nothing keeps me up at night.”

Cue Chris’s provision of Obama telling Barbara Walters a lot of things keep him awake.

So now Trump’s guilty of getting restorative sleep? Weren’t we told during the election that he was old and in horrible physical condition? Wouldn’t a solid 8 hours of Zzzz’s do the decrepit man some good?

Also, it seems to me the question of whether any politician “cares” about us is one of the most immature ideas in the world.

Who will make the best president is surely determined by a lot of things. But none of them, in my opinion, should be emotional.

Personally, I want someone comfortable with leadership whose policies are sound — a person who knows how to get things done, and who wants to bring good ideas to fruition.

Whether they “care” or not is incidental. My great grandmother cared; but I wouldn’t campaign for her.

Still, Chris does have one point: It’s downright inexplicable that New York’s eccentric billionaire hasn’t aged a couple centuries by now. As we’ve constantly been told, Donald perches like a gargoyle at night, sharpening his talons and seething with more hate, viciousness, anger, and insanity than the world could ever imagine. He’s always one strained fart away from literally combusting from the pressure of sheer maniacal evil boiling within.

So how’s he managed to stay so Matthew Broderickish?

Maybe the far and heated Left has just been full of it. Maybe Donald Trump is comfortable running a giant business and can take it in stride.

Or maybe I’m wrong. Maybe he’s a divisive, raging maniac.

Maybe he’s someone…just like this:

Rob Reiner has been struck with Trump Derangement Syndrome a bit harder than most. From time to time, he simply can’t help himself and he feels he must take to twitter to explain to his followers, once again, why he hates President Trump. The tension builds inside of him until he can no longer stand it, then he explodes. The stress leaves his body and he’s okay for a little while…until the pressure returns once more.

Reiner reached that point again on Wednesday and fired off the following tweet.

Actress Kristy Swanson ended it with three short words in one awesome tweet.

Naturally, Swanson’s hilarious (and appropriate) reply went viral. Here’s how other twitter users responded.
