Mika Brzezinski responds to Trump with 'little hands' reference

Made for little handsMSNBC host Mika Brzezinski needed no words of her own in responding to President Donald Trump's attack on her on Thursday morning.

In a tweet, she posted a photo of a box of Cheerios. On it, the words "Made For Little Hands" are written.

For years, Trump has taken issue with people saying he has small hands and fingers. In a Republican primary debate in 2016, Trump defended the size of his hands and his genitals after Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida had said days earlier: "You know what they say about men with small hands? ... You can't trust them."

TVNL Comment:  Ya gotta love it. The Baby President will have an infantile temper tantrum over this.  His skin is as thin as his hands are small.


Present at the Destruction: How Rex Tillerson Is Wrecking the State Department

Tillerson wrecking the State DepartmentThe deconstruction of the State Department is well underway.

I recently returned to Foggy Bottom for the first time since January 20 to attend the departure of a former colleague and career midlevel official—something that had sadly become routine. In my six years at State as a political appointee, under the Obama administration, I had gone to countless of these events. They usually followed a similar pattern: slightly awkward, but endearing formalities, a sense of melancholy at the loss of a valued teammate. But, in the end, a rather jovial celebration of a colleague’s work.

These events usually petered out quickly, since there is work to do. At the State Department, the unspoken mantra is: The mission goes on, and no one is irreplaceable. But this event did not follow that pattern. It felt more like a funeral, not for the departing colleague, but for the dying organization they were leaving behind.


Trump's Russia lawyer faces conflict-of-interest questions over $296m Kushner deal

Trump Russia lawyer faces scrutinyThe lawyer privately advising Donald Trump on the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election is head of a law firm that was involved in the sale of a prestigious piece of New York real estate to Jared Kushner, the US president’s son-in-law, in a deal that could fall under the spotlight of the same inquiry.

Marc Kasowitz, a member of the New York bar who has represented Trump in his business dealings for 15 years, was brought on board by the president last month to provide personal legal advice relating to the Russian inquiry now being conducted by special counsel Robert Mueller. The appointment has placed Kasowitz at the center of the legal maelstrom over the investigation into potential collusion between Russia and elements of Trump’s presidential campaign.


Allies of slain Putin critic Nemtsov allege cover-up after guilty verdict

One of three found guilty of murder in RussiaA court convicted five men of murdering Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov on Thursday, but the late politician's allies said the investigation had been a cover-up and that the people who had ordered his killing remained at large.

Nemtsov, one of President Vladimir Putin's most vocal critics, was murdered in 2015 as he walked across a bridge near the Kremlin after dining with his girlfriend. Aged 55, he had been working on a report examining Russia's role in Ukraine. His killing sent a chill through opposition circles.

Cardinal Georhe Pell involved in sex scandalA top adviser to Pope Francis was charged with multiple historical sex crimes in his native Australia on Thursday, bringing a worldwide abuse scandal to the heart of the Vatican.

President Trump hurls crude new insults at 'Morning Joe' hosts

Morning Joe and MikaPresident Trump lashed out against the hosts of MSNBC's Morning Joe on Thursday morning, hurling a series of insults on Twitter including one referencing female host Mika Brzezinski's face "bleeding" from a facelift.

Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!"

TVNL Comment:  The Baby in the White House can't take the heat.  He's an seriously sick puppy and he has the power to destroy the planet.
