“SCUMP”:  I have been given to calling DJT Our Fake President, but I think a better nickname is needed.  I propose “SCUMP” .  He has revealed himself to be the most vile individual to occupy the Oval Office in our history and his behavior is worsening every day. His enablers  have created a monster who is actually threatening our way of life.  SCUMP has proclaimed himself to be “the chief law enforcement officer”  of the country.  He’s not. Every one of the criminals he’s pardoning are SCUMBAGS just like he is.   Dear God, only 8 1/2 months of this to go. 

 From CNN via Jake Tapper: “After weeks of House and Senate Republicans claiming, during the impeachment trial, that President Trump cares gravely about battling corruption, Trump this afternoon officially forgave crimes committed by powerful men who abused their office for personal gains, a continuation of the president’s post-acquittal campaign of punishing his enemies and rewarding his friends.” Media outlets that ignored this context missed the entire story…

And in the Nobody -Better -Tell-Me-No Bad News Dept,  Trump apparentty wants to go the rest of his term without  hearing unwelcome news.  Good luck with that one. The WAPO reports HERE.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Richard Grenell is basically an internet troll. He’s a loyalist to the President, and he is not qualified to hold this position even for a single day.” — Rep. David Cicilline of Rhode Island joins a chorus of criticism of Trump’s new choice for intelligence chief, Richard Grenell, who lives in LA and Palm Springs. Past stories, including in the Washington Blade, have detailed concern over Grenell’s “mean tweets” and “derogatory” comments on women which have delayed past confirmation hearings.  Ironically,  Grenell is one of the rare gay people appointed by SCUMP.  

From the WAPO: Mayor Pete on Rush Limbaugh’s comments: “Well, I love my husband. I’m faithful to my husband. On stage, we usually just go for a hug, but I love him very much. And I’m not going to take lectures on family values from the likes of Rush Limbaugh.”

LET”S FORGET POLITICS FOR AWHILE-  HAVE YOU BEEN TO THE  SEQUOIA PARK ZOO LATELY?  One of the perks of a $30 Zoo membership is that they mail you a nifty Annual Report. Did you  know that almost 100,000 visitors enjoyed the Zoo last year?  That the Zoo houses 163 animals of 60 species,  six of which are endangered?  Did you know that their recent additions include a Bush Dog from France, two Pygora goats, a spotted whistling duck, a Virginia opossum and a Western Screech Owl named Chilito.  You may have heard that the Zoo has joined the with  the  City of  Eureka, the Humboldt  Lodging Alliance,  the Eureka Lodging Alliance  and the Arcata Lodging Alliance to support funding for  new projects such as the eagerly awaited Redwood Canopy Walk,   which will enable you to walk in the treetops.   Come check out the Zoo!  $8 gets you in for a day,  but the way to go is really the  $30 annual membership and there are family memberships also.  See you at the Zoo!
