That darn sexist Trump is at it AGAIN

Quote:


Donald Trump has fired Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State and said he would nominate CIA director Mike Pompeo as his replacement. The new director of the Central Intelligence Agency will be Gina Haspel, provided that her nomination is confirmed by the Senate.

Here are some important footnotes about Haspel’s career:

Haspel will be the first female CIA director in history. The position, which dates back to 1946 when President Truman established the CIA, has to this date been held by 24 different men.


Haspel has more than 30 years of history with the CIA. She joined the agency in 1985 and has served the majority of her career in clandestine operations.


In 2002, Haspel ran a “black site” prison in Thailand, which was part of a network of prisons established by the agency, as reported by the Washington Post. According to the Senate Intelligence Committee’s torture report, Haspel oversaw “the waterboarding and other harsh techniques” used to interrogate Abu Zubaydah and Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, suspected al Qaeda terrorists.


Haspel has been linked to the illegal destruction of videotapes of these interrogations, but no prosecution ever came of it.


Haspel, currently acting deputy director of the CIA, has previously served as deputy director of the National Clandestine Service, deputy director of the National Clandestine Service for Foreign Intelligence and Covert Action, chief of staff for the director of the National Clandestine Service.


Haspel received numerous awards for her service. According to the CIA, Haspel has received the “George H. W. Bush Award for excellence in counterterrorism; the Donovan Award; the Intelligence Medal of Merit; and the Presidential Rank Award, the most prestigious award in the federal civil service.”

Sabcat, you really need to take your show on the road. What a rib-tickling post and WAAAY to segue from Prez Hotpants to Director Joan of Arc.

I'm sure Gina is a LOVELY LADY who will bring her feminine TOUCH to the CIA.

Here's what The Onion has to say:

"Gina Haspel Recalls Having To Torture More Prisoners Than Male Colleagues To Prove Herself".

We'll see how long SHE can stomach DJ.

The only things I know about her is that she spent much of her time undercover thus there are few pics of her and that she ran a black-ops prison in Thailand (I believe) where torture was SOP.

So as usual, The Onion is spot on in it's own wonderful way.

It's only fair. She has tortured people why should she not be tortured by having to put up with Lord lard-Ass?

I find it simply amazing that so many who chastised others for their critique, and bashing of then President Obama, find it so easy to be absolutely horrible when speaking of president Trump. My mother always said, two wrongs do not make a right. Political discussions have become disorderly hateful diatribes towards someone who believes differently, I think politicians love it because it takes our focus off of them.

Don the Con has made insulting people to play to his base a political strategy. Obama never did that. You are comparing apples to oranges. When one acts like as big an asshole as Don the Con, people will talk. Even his own staff has called the creep insulting names. Apples and oranges dog.

Obama was caught in an uncharacteristic moment of loose language. Referring to working-class voters in old industrial towns decimated by job losses, the presidential hopeful said: "They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

The comments were seized on by his rival for the Democratic party candidacy, Hillary Clinton, who saw in them the hope of reviving her flagging campaign by turning voters in the important Pennsylvania primary on April 22 against what she classed as Obama's revealed "elitism".

"I was taken aback by the demeaning remarks Senator Obama made about people in small-town America," she said on Saturday. "His remarks are elitist and out of touch." Clinton campaigners in North Carolina handed out stickers saying: "I'm not bitter."

What a silly response. Don the con started his campaign insulting everybody in sight and hasn’t stop. He uses Twitter for that very purpose. You are comparing apples to oranges. Even his own cabinet thinks he’s an idiot. Weak response dog.

Ah, that's just too damned bad. You elect a clown for President and you want to complain when we laugh? Should not have elected a clown. *shrug*
