    Trump Backs Off Of Mexico Tariff Threat After Agreement Is Made

    The 5% tax on all Mexican goods was supposed to begin Monday, but Trump reached an agreement with Mexico to reduce illegal immigration. The irksome part of it all is that Trump could renege and quash the deal if something pisses him off.

    New Pelosi Attack Bares Trump’s ‘Trigger’ Over Prison, Says MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace

    There’s suddenly a “new ‘I’ word, and it’s ‘imprisonment,’ not ‘impeachment,’” says former FBI official Frank Figliuzzi. IMO, Trump fears the former more than the latter, and could well be more likely to happen.

    On this date in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018, "Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day" published profiles of the current U.S. House Representative from Washington’s 8th Congressional District, Dave Reichert, a former police officer who fell all over himself to take credit for catching the Green River Serial Killer (in spite of botching the case for years until the murderer’s body count was approaching triple digits), and for using over-aggressive tactics on protesters at the 1999 World Trade Organization conference that led to the situation escalating into “The Battle for Seattle” (where he abandoned his post when cameras showed up to chase after looters). Reichert ran sexist campaign ads against Darcy Burner in both 2006 and 2008, has been caught on tape joking about Hillary Clinton falling to her death out of a plane, and told fellow Republicans they should “be worried about Barack Obama stealing money out of your wallets”. His voting record is widely conservative, including votes against Dodd-Frank, against regulating offshore oil rigs after the Deepwater Horizon incident, voting against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, and consistently voting against the Affordable Care Act (lying about its success whenever he gets the chance). Oh, and Reichert, always quick to defend police violence and extend unconditional support for law enforcement, as an ex-cop himself, celebrated National Police Week in March 2016 by taking to the floor of the House to give a speech called “Blue Lives Matter”, a deliberate slap in the face at the “Black Lives Matter” movement, because of course he did. Dave Reichert decided to retire from office in 2018, rather than face down the Blue Wave. As such, we’re going to go ahead and retire his profile at this time and go ahead and take a look at a different wacky Republican today instead. (Current crazy/stupid scoreboard, is now 757-40, since this was established in July 2014.)


    Nick Miccarelli

    Welcome to the 757th original “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day” profile, where today we’ll be taking a look at Nick Miccarelli, a former member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives who served District 162 in that body from 2009-2018. It wasn’t Miccarelli’s voting record that stood out to us so much, with your basic Republican support for anti-choice regulations, voter suppression efforts with unnecessary Voter ID laws, and opposition to firearm regulations.

    Now, where Nick Miccarelli really drew our attention was the series of allegations brought against him during his career as a legislator. A fellow Republican member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, Tarah Toohill, got an order of protection against Miccarelli, citing two separate incidents where he threatened her life. In one, in 2012, he pulled a gun on her. In another, in 2014, he threatened to crash a car both were in where he was speeding at 100 MPH. A legislative aide also reported being sexually assaulted by Miccarelli. And, while retaliating against the woman who reported him having raped her, Miccarelli allegedly decided to attempt to silence her in the most classy of methods… revenge porn, naming his accuser and providing nude photos of her to media outlets.

    He refused to resign even though politicians from both sides of the aisle called on him to do so, because he’s enough of a motherf***er that he still wanted to finish out the last few months of his term and qualify for his benefits as a legislator. That proved difficult, though, considering Toohill had a restraining order against him, he was yanked from all his committee assignments, and he was about as much of a pariah as someone could be. Nick Miccarelli’s career is over, and we’re going to be ready to hand anyone the largest hammer we can find should he attempt to pop up in a game of MeToo Whack-A-Mole in a couple years.

    Why is it some men's minds automatically think rape jokes are ok as soon as prison time for despicable people is mentioned?

    In this specific context with Trump being a known sexual deviant, the old saying "don't drop the soap" would be a sort of comeuppance given that he would finally be at the mercy of not only the people he likes to shit on, but also at their sexual mercy.

    Now in reality should he make it to prison that situation would never occur given his high-profile nature, and would be moved to a location far less problematic for his health. But the nature of the joke is built on the stereotype and outdated information about prison life and Trumps own attitudes towards women and criminals.

    I know. Why can't we just hope they get stabbed in the shower with a toothbrush whittled into a shiv like a civilized society? Or that they hang themselves with a bedsheet as the easy way out.

    I don't know if it's exactly in poor taste given who Trump is, rape isn't funny and shouldn't be made light of either. In this scenario I really don't know what to tell you since I've already explained the guy's joke.

    Yes, thank you for your explanation. I am sure I really did not get that.

    Relax, I wasn't suggesting that Trump should be raped in prison, just that when I read he had a pathological fear of imprisonment this scene came to mind, because if you watch the clip it's just a nightmare that one character with the same kind of fear has.
