Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – “and so it begins” edition

Hi everyone – I put down the Drano and bleach cocktail and decided to return for a bit.

First of all, a warm welcome back to the one and only Scout!  Can Jude be far behind?

Second of all – I did kinda think that the Freeperati would at least wait until the coronation before falling on each others’ throats, but nope…

Donald Trump Requests Security Clearance for Son-in-Law Jared Kushner

NBC News ^ | Nov 15 2016, 8:58 pm ET | by Andrea Mitchell, Alexandra Jaffe and Kelly O’Donnell

Donald Trump has taken the unprecedented step of requesting his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, receive top-secret clearance to join him for his Presidential Daily Briefings, which began Tuesday.

Multiple sources tell NBC News Trump received his first briefing on Tuesday and designated both Kushner and Ret. Gen. Michael Flynn as his staff-level companions for the briefings going forward.

While Flynn has the necessary security clearance, Kushner does not, and it could take weeks — or even longer — for him to receive it.

Sounds reasonable.
Freepers?

How much do you want to bet they act like jerks and deny it or delay it until January 21?

How much do you want to bet that Trump doesn’t know about the NEPOTISM BAN ?Somebody better tell him about it ASAP!

Well, there is that….
To: BlessedBeGod

 

I wonder why the President Elect wants to have family given security clearance.

This is a bad idea of his all around. The anti-nepotism laws aside, there is no reason his family members should know everything that is going on.

Maybe Jared is going to be America’s bankruptcy consultant?

Yep. Very bad idea.

Of course, one criticizes The Darnold at one’s peril…
To: CorporateStepsister 

Trump is a master delegater(sic).

There’s too many available jokes here to pick just one.

And he values the advice from certain key people on this planet.

…as opposed to OFF-planet people that keep him up by talking to him at 3AM in voices only he can hear…

It’s been obvious, for some time now, that some of those people are related to him.

Only to people who can read.

But who wants advice from a trusted individual who doesn’t have all the facts???

So of course he’s asking for clearance. Nothing more to this story.

But for once, even the Freeperati are fed up :
To: SolidWood; nopardons 

I’m beginning to think that Trump has dreams of a dynasty.

This didn’t occur to you when he threw the corporate keys to Beavis and Butt-head?

No family member should have clearance mainly since it would create a situation where there would be more people that the Secret Service would have to protect and frankly I do not believe that anyone unelected or not part of the official staff should have access. If Jared runs around NY with classified papers, it would be a spy’s dream come true. Or worse, Jared gets kidnapped and ends up tortured into revealing everything.

I agree with you completely!And frankly, I don’t give a damn what Trump imagines that Jared knows that can “help” him; he’s damned dead wrong about that!

One Freeper poses a good question :

What the ####?!?!?!

WHO is this guy and is he even conservative??!?!?!

?!?!?!

YEAH! Just WHO the fuck is this Jared guy anyway??

Sorry.  Wrong Jared.

To: sargon 

It’s a wrong and stupid move.

That’s because The Darnold is wrong-headed and stupid.  What the fuck did you expect?

What is his expertise in regarding the national briefings?

Is he conservative?

Does he have vast experience in foreign and domestic affairs that he could offer so much to Trump?

Bad bad bad.

BAD BAD DARNOLD!!!  NO CHEETO!!
More after the broken hearts…

 

Where were we?  Oh yes.

Amen!!!! WTH!?!?!?!

Jared has NO experience, in any areas at all, nor expertise in the ways of geo-politics. He’s also all of 35 and the NEPOTISM LAW does come into play! 

Somebody had better slap The Donald upside his head and quickly!

I officially volunteer.

He’s already cosying(sic) up to some people he absolutely should not!

There’s a law AGAINST just that, that the entire Congress passed after JFK was assassinated.WHY DOESN’T ANYONE IN TRUMP’S INNER CIRCLE KNOW THIS AND/OR TELL HIM ?

Why?
Because you don’t want to get The Darnold angry. You just don’t.
Not if you want to keep riding the gravy train.
To: dp0622
Hmmmmmmmmm…he owns a now defunct weekly newspaper, which can now only be read on line and is a real estate investor.His father is a felon.

His BFF from childhood is Chelsea Clinton’s husband, whose father is also a felon.

Jared has less than NO political experience, outside of his help in running Trump’s campaign. Outside of that and being married to Ivanka, the 35 year old knows nothing about politics, geo-politics, etc.!

Frankly, it sounds like he’d fit right in with the rest of them.
To: dp0622
This is a HORRIBLE mistake/false foot and now I’m nervous and NOT happy. :-(And you know me…if I’m very unhappy about this, it stinks on ice!

Nope; it would be a TERRIBLE, VERY STUPID, bordering on the INSANE mistake!Jared helped Trump via digital messaging ( TWEETING ), which is a VERY different thing from running the government of this nation! And Ivanka has some lefty ideas…who knows WHAT Jared has talked Trump into in the past?

Of course, The Darnold denies it all:
To: BlessedBeGod

 

“Despite reports suggesting the contrary, a transition team official says Donald Trump did not request or begin paperwork to have his children gain top-level security clearance, according to a pool report.”

To: agere_contra

 

I have no idea how old any of the posters are who are on this thread, claiming that it’s okay, but I was old enough and have an exceptional memory, to remember when the Congress made it impossible for any other president to do what JFK did, re Bobby.

You know – it is well and truly fucked up when you have to go to Red State for your facts.
Just sayin’…
Trump Transition Team Now Admits Request for Trump Kids’ Security Clearances, Blames on “Low-Level Staffer” | RedState

https://oss.maxcdn.com/html5shiv/3.7.2/html5shiv.min.js

First CBS News reported yesterday, based on anonymous “sources,” that Trump had asked for security clearances for his kids. Then, an anonymous transition team official last night told reporters that the CBS News report was false, offering this bold and stirring denial: “That’s not something I’m expecting right now.”

Tonight, the Trump organization has spun on a dime, and now admits that security clearances were indeed requested for the Trump brood . . . but an anonymous “top aide” blames it on a low-level staffer:

The Trump transition team is saying that a low-level staffer requested security clearances for three of Donald Trump’s children, according to a top aide.

According to the aide, the request was made “without authorization” and the staffer, who is no longer with the team, “overstepped his boundaries.”

Sources say the request was not made by the president-elect.

I tend to agree with this assessment:

Of course, we’ll never know what REALLY happened…

One thought on “Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – “and so it begins” edition

  1. Snarki, child of Loki says:

    We may, finally (and probably fatally) discover if there is such a thing as “peak wingnut”.

    I hear it’s just like Shangra-La, but with a thick coating of derp.
