My MAGA review of 2017, the year America became great again, continues today with a day-by day look at June.
June 1: “President Trump will announce Thursday that he will withdraw the United States from participation in the Paris climate accord, weakening global efforts to combat climate change and siding with conservatives who argued that the landmark 2015 agreement was harming the economy, officials briefed on Capitol Hill said.”
In other news, the president called off the search for Sasquatch, confirmed there is no car that can run on plain water, and told the kids that there is no Santa Claus — or president named Hillary.
June 2: “Michael Bloomberg: I’ll make sure UN gets $15 million it needs for Paris agreement.”
There’s one born every minute.
June 3: “As news that President Trump was pulling out of the Paris climate accord hit at a luncheon for small-business owners in Toledo, Ohio, on Thursday, an already happy crowd suddenly turned euphoric.”
Big business is miffed because it will lose out on subsidies.
June 4: “929,000 news stories about covfefe.”
The president complained about unfair news coverage. Misspelled coverage. Deleted it. The press spent all day mocking him.
And then around 10 p.m., Islamic terrorists struck in London.
Worst news media ever.
June 5: “CNN staged the news in London of a fake Muslim protest in London.”
Jeff Zucker’s snooze network could not even pull off Fake News.
June 6: “Trump pitched Republican leaders on a solar-paneled border wall.”
The media scoffed. But on April 5 there was a report, “Border Wall submissions are in, including proposals with solar panels, tourist destinations, nuclear waste storage, art, and a shared ‘co-nation’.”
June 7: “Trump blocked some people from his Twitter account. Is that unconstitutional?”
The Washington Post keeps reading like The Onion.
Liberal MSNBC host Chris Matthews said Thursday the accusation that President Trump directly colluded with Russia to interfere in the U.S. election “came apart” following former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony in front of Congress.
In his written and spoken testimony on Thursday, Comey said that he never felt that Trump had tried to impede the FBI’s investigation into Russia, even that the president had encouraged it and he suggested that former national security adviser Mike Flynn wasn’t at the heart of the investigation.
“The assumption of the critics of the president, of his pursuers, you might say, is that somewhere along the line in the last year is the president had something to do with colluding with the Russians … to affect the election in some way,” Matthews said on MSNBC, following the testimony.
“And yet what came apart this morning was that theory,” Matthews said, listing two reasons why. First, he said Comey revealed that “Flynn wasn’t central to the Russian investigation,” and secondly, he said that kills the idea that Flynn might have been in a position to testify against Trump.
“And if that’s not the case, where’s the there-there?” Matthews said.
There, there, CNN. It’s all right. You still have your bronze medal for cable news ratings.
June 9: “Britney Spears’s Instagram Was the Target of Russian Hackers.”
And this was how Justin Timberlake was elected president of the Mickey Mouse Club Reunion.
June 10: “Former Vice President Joe Biden’s niece evades jail after pleading guilty in $110G credit card scam.”
Jail is for little people.
June 11: “One of President Donald Trump’s attorneys on Sunday wouldn’t rule out the possibility the president would fire the special counsel appointed to look into his campaign’s potential ties to Russia.”
The first in a series of Trump-will-fire-Mueller stories.
Megyn Kelly couldn’t beat a “60 Minutes” rerun in the debut of her newsmagazine despite her exclusive interview with Vladimir Putin. He owned her.
Now an advertiser is pulling out because she interviewed Alex Jones for her upcoming episode. In fact, because of the interview, that advertiser is pulling out of all NBC ads, including those online.
“Jeff and Pink Lady” no longer was the worst show ever on NBC.
June 13: “Cambridge University examiners told it is sexist to use the word ‘genius’ to describe students.”
They need not worry about the word, because with an attitude like that, only dummies will go there from now on.
June 14: “The gunman who attacked members of Congress on Wednesday morning, wounding a GOP leader, campaigned for Bernie Sanders, called Republicans ‘racist,’ and had run-ins with the law for domestic violence and shooting.”
Racist? Where would he ever get a deplorable idea like that?
June 15: “Trump Orders Government to Stop Work on Y2K Bug, 17 Years Later.”
What? No more partying like it’s 19-99?
June 16: “Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, hires his own lawyer in Russia probe.”
Robert Mueller is the Red Queen only with better press.
June 17: “Two protesters crashed Friday night’s production of Shakespeare in the Park Julius Caesar, which depicts the assassination and brutal stabbing of a stand-in for President Donald Trump.”
It’s not just Trump. They want all conservatives dead.
June 18: “ICE chief doubles down: Undocumented immigrants ‘should be concerned.'”
The illegal aliens should worry, too.
Spicer only talks to real reporters.
June 20: “Karen Handel, a Republican, defeated Jon Ossoff, a Democrat, in the most expensive U.S. House race in history. The election was largely seen as a referendum on the first months of Donald J. Trump’s presidency. Republicans maintain control of the seat, which was vacated by Tom Price, the new secretary of health and human services.”
If only Gloria Allred had dragged out someone who claimed Handel mishandled him when he was 14.
June 21: “King Salman of Saudi Arabia has removed the kingdom’s crown prince and named his 31-year-old son, Mohammed bin Salman, next in line to the Saudi throne.”
The Saudi Trump would take the throne, arrest the crooked millionaires and billionaires, and win the war with the Islamic State.
June 22: “Foxconn, the world’s largest contract electronics maker and a major Apple Inc supplier, plans to invest more than $10 billion in a display-making factory in the United States and will decide on the location of the plant next month.”
Those jobs ain’t coming back.
June 23: “A federal judge in Manhattan has reduced one count of a drug conviction and accused prosecutors of using ‘misleading’ tactics in a case that former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara helped try in February, just before his firing earlier this year.”
Turns out Saint Preet was a sinner.
June 24: “A majority of voters believe the Russia investigations are damaging to the country and are eager to see Congress shift its focus to health care, terrorism, national security, the economy and jobs.”
What? Just who does the public think it is? The boss of Congress?
June 25: “The Supreme Court is letting the Trump administration enforce its 90-day ban on travelers from six mostly Muslim countries, overturning lower court orders that blocked it.”
The justices scheduled the hearing for October — after the temporary moratorium ended.
June 26: “Three CNN journalists, including the executive editor in charge of a new investigative unit, have resigned after the publication of a Russia-related article that was retracted.”
Ah, the Scaramucci Fandango. A one-source story by a Pulitzer Prize winner.
June 27: “Obamas under fire from the left for never ending, sizzling ultra-luxury vacations.”
They never seemed to care when he did this as president.
June 28: “Man hit by bus as he crosses road — before dusting himself down and walking into pub.”
The most British man in all of Great Britain.
June 29: “NASA Denies That It’s Running a Child Slave Colony on Mars.”
It’s actually on Uranus.
June 30: From the Washington Post: “Twitter is exploring adding a feature that would let users flag tweets that contain misleading, false or harmful information, according to two people familiar with the company’s projects.”
From Breitbart: “Twitter Denies It Is Developing Feature for Users to Flag ‘Fake’ or ‘Harmful’ News.”
Anything in the Washington Post should be flagged as potential Fake News.
Final score: GOOD 19, EVIL 11.
