White House Lays Epic Burn On Ted Cruz As President Biden Prepares To Visit Texas

On Friday, President Joe Biden will visit the state of Texas to see firsthand the damage wrought by Winter Storm Uri, which left millions of Texans without power and water for nearly a full week and killed 80 people.

It’s a tradition for a president to invite senators from the state he’s about to visit to fly on Air Force One with the POTUS, but the White House just made it clear that neither Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) or John Cornyn (R-TX) will be afforded that honor, the Daily Mail reports:

“White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that because Dr. Jill Biden is joining her husband on the trip and because of social distancing requirements of COVID, neither Cruz nor fellow Texas Senator John Cornyn would be on the trip.

“‘Dr. Biden is traveling, of course, with us to Texas,’ Psaki said at her press briefing Thursdsay. ‘There are some limitations on space available.'”

So not only did the administration manage to completely humiliate Cruz and Cornyn, they used COVID as a reason for why they wouldn’t be invited. That’s absolutely brilliant!

Of course, this is just the latest humiliation for Sen. Cruz, who tried to sneak off to Cancun with his family and then had to return to Texas when he was photographed hopping a jet out of the U.S. and abandoning his constituents at their time of need.

When he came back, Cruz hemmed and hawed, saying he was just escorting his two daughters to Mexico and never had any intention on staying with them, telling reporters:

“And all of us have made decisions – when you’ve got two girls who have been cold for two days, and haven’t had heat or power, and they are saying: ‘Look, we don’t have school, why don’t we go, let’s get out of here.'”

Whatever, Ted. But no Air Force One for you!

Crime Donald Trump The Trump Adminstration WTF?!

Trump Aides Are Reportedly Looting The White House In The Administration’s Final Days

You can add looting an American historical monument — The White House — to the crimes committed by the Trump administration, with reports that top staffers and aides are taking all sorts of valuable artifacts from the People’s House in the final days.

CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta reports that Trump is completely isolated from his staffers:

“I will tell you, you talk to sources close to the White House, people inside the White House, they describe a situation where the president is basically isolated, behind closed doors. He’s whining about this impeachment, he’s whining about being held responsible for what happened on January 6th. He’s also sort of casting off advisers and aides who aren’t telling him what he wants to hear.”

In essence, Vice President Mike Pence is running the country, Acosta added:

“And there is a split screen because Vice President Mike Pence is almost acting like a de facto president right now. He’s attending briefings like national security briefings on inauguration security preps and so on and it is a striking sort of way to look at the end of the Trump presidency.”

And then we have the looting, which was caught on camera, Acosta noted:

“And we are seeing what looks like moving day over at the White House. You are seeing items coming and going from the West Wing. We saw Larry Kudlow leaving earlier today. Here’s a bust of Abraham Lincoln being carried out of the West Wing.

“People need to know that the items inside the White House are not giveaways, they’re not souvenirs you can take home. This is not an estate sale or Antiques Roadshow, but yet you’re seeing some White House staffers taking mementos with them as they go. And so it is a strange sort of surreal look at the end days of the Trump presidency, but that’s what we’re in the midst of right now.”

The one thing Donald Trump and his administration have always done better than anything else is grifting. And they’re doing so to the very last second of his term in office.

Here’s Jim Acosta reporting on the looting of the White House:

Donald Trump Melania Trump WTF?!

There’s Something Very Strange About This Year’s Official White House Christmas Portrait

The final official White House Christmas portrait from Donald and Melania Trump was released this week, featuring the two in tuxedos standing on the Grand Staircase.

There’s just one major problem with the photo, according to many who’ve examined it closely: It appears to be a fake and photoshopped. If that’s the case, then the fakest news of all is indeed coming from inside the house! (Cue spooky music and screams of horror.)

InStyle magazine had this to say about the matter:

“It makes sense why the Trumps would fake their holiday portrait, as Melania herself has admitted she isn’t a fan of her White House Christmas duties. Luckily, this is the last year Melania will have to worry about ‘Christmas stuff’ — holiday portraits, included.”

Then Twitter took over, and some of the comments are pure gold:

Something is definitely not right with Don and Mel’s Christmas photo. That shouldn’t surprise anyone when you consider both of them are as messed up as two people can possibly be.


Americans Furious After Melania’s ‘Renovation’ Of The White House Rose Garden Is Unveiled

The White House Rose Garden is one of the most well-known features of the presidential compound and came to be planted with roses in 1961, when John F. Kennedy was president. When in bloom, the Rose Garden is awash in both color and fragrance.

So when First Lady Melania Trump announced in July that she would “restore and enhance” the Rose Garden, many people were skeptical of such a move, despite promises that the updating of the space would be tasteful:

On Saturday, the public was shown the result of Melania’s Rose Garden renovation, and based on early reviews, she probably should have spent her time packing up her personal belongings and moving to a deserted island (which her husband may be planning in an attempt to avoid prison), because the vast majority of those who have seen the new Rose Garden are not impressed.

To put it mildly, the current first lady only succeeded in pissing off at least half the country with her changes:

Be sure and note that the famed cherry trees have been removed. Those have been there for centuries and were planted to honor the first president and father of the country, George Washington:

And where are the damn roses? Did they flee when the cherry trees were eliminated, fearful that they’d be next?

The once sacred and hallowed has now been desecrated by people who think solid gold toilets are “tasteful.”

It’s difficult to fully describe exactly what Melania has done to the Rose Garden. If only there was one word that could accurately sum up her changes.

Let’s try this one: Clusterfuck.
