A Department of Health and Human Services official shared controversial content on her Twitter account, including an image in 2017 of former President Barack Obama and his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that said “our forefathers would have hung” them for treason, according to a new report.

The official, Ximena Barreto, also shared content in 2017 that characterized Obama as a “Muslim terrorist” and posted a tweet that called Obama a “pansy and a traitor,” CNN’s KFile reported.

Barreto, who started in December with the agency as deputy director of communications, has been put on leave after a liberal watchdog group uncovered that she had said Islam was a “cult” and promoted a conspiracy theory that Clinton and other top Democrats oversaw a child sex trafficking ring in the basement a D.C. pizzeria.

R.N.C. Official Who Agreed to Pay Playboy Model $1.6 Million Resigns
Quote:
A major donor with close ties to the White House resigned on Friday as deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee after the revelation that he had agreed to pay $1.6 million to a former Playboy model who became pregnant during an affair.

The deal was arranged in the final months of 2017 by President Trump’s personal lawyer and fixer, Michael D. Cohen.

Under the terms of the deal, the Republican donor, Elliott Broidy, would pay the woman in installments over the course of two years, and she would agree to stay silent about their relationship, two people with knowledge of the arrangement told The New York Times. The deal was first reported by The Wall Street Journal.

This same guy pleaded guilty to bribery in a pension fund fraud case in 2009, but he's plenty ethical to be an RNC bigwig.

Crooks of the same feather flock together. Cohen who negotiated the $1.6M hush payment is also a recently appointed RNC Finance vice chairman. This is getting ugly as ugly can be.

Michael Cohen, Trump's lawyer and a Republican for less than a month, takes a top RNC finance role

Quote:
Michael Cohen, a new Republican convert and personal lawyer to President Trump, will become the national deputy chairman for Republican National Committee's finance leadership team.

The RNC announced Cohen, who became a Republican on March 9 after previously being a Democrat during his adult life, was in the new role on Monday. The Daily Beast first reported Cohen's new role last week.

Cohen served as a spokesman for Trump during the campaign and raised "millions of dollars" for Trump's campaign.

Pence in Two Places at Once???

Sarah Hillbilly Sanders released this picture of the White House situation room showing Trump consulting with his advisors on Syria, including Mike Pence, while Pence was actually in Peru at the time. These people can't speak or tweet without lying.



Sarah Sanders

Last night the President put our adversaries on notice: when he draws a red line he enforces it. (Inside the Situation Room as President is briefed on Syria - Official WH photos by Shealah Craighead


Here's Walter Schaub's (Former WH Ethics Advisor) response:

Fascinating tweet in which Sarah Sanders reveals that Mike Pence was simultaneously in Peru and Washington. If this new capability doesn’t scare our enemies, nothing will.

A brewing fight between West Virginia GOP Senate candidate Don Blankenship and national Republicans spilled into the open Monday when the coal baron compared Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell to Russians interfering in his state’s election.

Methinks the GOP is phucked.

“West Virginians are aware that McConnell cannot vote in their election,” Blankenship adds. “They want him to mind his own business and do his job. A job he has not done now for over 30 years. Balance the budget Mitch and stay out of West Virginia.”
What he said Mitch. Let's have a repeat of Alabama, please.

Wisconsin GOP Senate candidate questions 'cognitive thought process' of veterans who are Democrats

https://www.cnn.com/2018/05/02/polit...ats/index.html

As a veteran, I question this clown’s reason for living. What an ass.
