You’ve got to give this guy some chutzpah points for allowing his company to cave to the social justice crowd and then immediately grabbing a parachute to bail the hell out. Next stop, the presidency?
In an interview with The Times, Schultz, a Democrat who has publicly criticized President Donald Trump, did not deny speculation that he was considering a political career.
[…] Starbucks’ founder and executive chairman Howard Schultz is stepping down.
Schultz, who previously served as the coffee giant’s CEO, is leaving his position at the end of June, The New York Times reported on Monday.
In an interview with The Times, Schultz, a Democrat who has publicly criticized U.S. President Donald Trump, did not deny speculation that he was considering a political career.
So far Schultz’s early slogan of “Nobody understands the struggles of the middle class like the guy who built a politically-correct corporate behemoth by charging them six bucks for a cup of coffee” isn’t inspiring confidence that his campaign would catch on.
That said, the “White House bathrooms are open to everybody” policy would be interesting to watch unfold:
Bill’s the kind of guy who would punch you in the face and then later criticize you for not praising his support for ice packs.
Bill Clinton’s doing interviews to promote a novel he co-authored with James Patterson, but during a line of questioning on the “Today Show,” Bubba was asked about Monica Lewinsky. This answer from Bill is such vintage Clinton that it should be bottled and stored in a wine cellar:
In Maureen Dowd’s new column in the New York Times, titled “Obama, just too good for us,” revolves around Ben Rhodes’ upcoming book, we find this:
Obama did not like persuading people to do what they didn’t want to do. And that is the definition of politics. He wanted them simply to do what he had ascertained to be right.
You know, Dowd isn’t wrong about Obama, though I’m sure she intended that as a compliment. He much preferred force over persuasion, as his administration’s track record proves. Team Obama would even gladly punch nuns in the face if they weren’t falling in line:

That look you get in your eye when you’re trying to get your hands on somebody else’s money.
Bernie Sanders is 76 years old, but his senses are still strong — especially his ability to smell money, even if it’s almost 3,000 miles from the state he’s paid to represent:
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is meeting with workers and activists in Southern California on Saturday, just days prior to the state’s June 5 primary election.
The former Democratic presidential hopeful kicked off his tour at a rally and roundtable with Disneyland Resort employees in Anaheim, where unions are pushing legislation to increase wages for hospitality workers. The event got underway at 10 a.m. inside the River Church Arena.
Sanders lent his support to “union leaders pushing a ballot measure that would require businesses that have received subsidies from the city to raise wages to $15 an hour by 2019,” a news release from his office read.
For some reason Sanders didn’t tell workers he thinks are underpaid how to stretch a buck farther, which a socialist “public servant” with three homes should certainly know something about.
And no, Sanders didn’t get too worked up at the thought of helping divide up Disney’s abundance, why do you ask?
Kim Jong Un’s people might be starving, oppressed and subject to imprisonment in labor camps, but his rep Kim Jong Chol showed President Trump at the White House that their huge envelope industry is alive and well, and they’re not afraid to use it:
The new jobs report out this morning indicates new hiring was in the positive by several hundred thousand jobs, and the unemployment rate is the lowest it’s been in decades. Given that, what’s a desperate Dem to do with midterms just around the corner? Nancy Pelosi leads the way in helping Dems run against an improving economy:
