The Thursday Politics Thread Didn’t Get A Thank You

Morning Politocadoes

The President renewed his beef with a dead man, so that’s fun. Yes, Trump apparently needed to continue attacking John McCain several months after the senator passed away from complications due to brain cancer. Say what you want about McCain or his daughter whom uses him as a shield against criticism, he nor his family deserve this sort of treatment. Particularly from the President of the United States. His widow Cindy McCain is also apparently getting death threats from the President’s loyal supporters, so that’s nice.  I’d like to think that this more has to do with the fact that McCain gave the Steele Dossier to the FBI and that’s why he’s still pissed, but really it’s equally likely that it was some petty bullshit because the Crime President is a petty, petty man.

In other news regarding Snowflake Republicans, Devin Nunes’ lawsuit against twitter and two accounts that made fun of him, continues to backfire spectacularly. The @DevinCow account now has more follower than the Representative’s official account. Good Job Devin! And happy two year anniversary on your midnight ride to the White House!

IN Brexit news, Theresa May is again asking for a delay on Brexit. Most people seem to think that the EU holds all the cards here. But  Good Ol Theresa knows that things will turn around! She just needs some leads from her friends France and Germany, just a little help for your old pal, Theresa, huh?

In news where things actually make sense, New Zealand is to ban military style semi automatic (MSSA) weapons and assault rifles in the wake of the tragic Christchurch mosque shootings. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced that the legislation will be in place by April 11th. Buy-backs will be initiated  for current owner. High capacity magazines and parts that are used to convert weapons into MSSAs will also be banned. Hopefully, New Zealand will never have to suffer such a tragic loss of life again.
