The Breakfast Scramble: 25 November 2016

DavidL's Breakfast ScrambleThe Breakfast Scramble:

Hold your horses Little Donny, from Red State [1]:

So can all the Branch Trumpidian cultists stop comparing Trump to Ronald Reagan, now?

In a stunning show of cowardice and defeat, Stephen Moore, founder of Club for Growth, has rolled over and abandoned the conservative movement of Reagan for the populist, Big Government party of Trump.

Maybe some day Little Donny will be compared to the Gipper. This is not yet the day.

Then shades of the Gipper, Little Donny acts in the mode of the Gipper, from Washington Examiner [2]:

Two of the nation’s largest teachers unions had nothing but criticism on Wednesday for President-elect Trump’s decision to pick Betsy DeVos, an outspoken school choice advocate, to lead the Department of Education in his administration.

Trump announced the appointment in the early afternoon, describing DeVos as “a brilliant and passionate education advocate” who is committed to reforming the current public education system and demolishing “the bureaucracy that is holding our children back.” But the unions immediately opposed her

Ronny made a mark by standing up to Big Air Traffic Control. Little Donny stands up to Big Unionized Teachers. Bravo!

Paging Algore, Marc Morano, Climate Depot [3]:

Antarctic sea ice had barely changed from where it was 100 years ago, scientists have discovered, after pouring over the logbooks of great polar explorers such as Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest Shackleton. Experts were concerned that ice at the South Pole had declined significantly since the 1950s, which they feared was driven by man-made climate change. But new analysis suggests that conditions are now virtually identical to when the Terra Nova and Endurance sailed to the continent in the early 1900s, indicating that declines are part of a natural cycle and not the result of global warming. -Sarah Knapton, The Daily Telegraph, 24 November 2016

The Charge of the Light Brigade, Kristen Gillibrand dips toe in the presidential water, from Page Six [4]:

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is already reaching out to top Hillary Clinton donors about the 2020 presidential race.

Sources tell us that the New York senator has been personally making calls to some of Clinton’s biggest backers to “talk about the direction of the country.”

One source said, “She isn’t directly asking donors about her chances in 2020, but it is implied.”

The woman is a twit. Her pet issue is persecuting college men for imaginary rapes.
