“Will you be ready when I call your bluff?”

As Commentarion McAllen accurately guessed, the Banana Republican’s threat to “come after” Rep. Mark Meadows (R-Freedom’s Carcass) was inversely effective.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, says he’s not worried about losing his seat in 2018 if the ObamaCare repeal plan fails.

“I serve at the pleasure of the people of western North Carolina, and when you serve at their pleasure, it’s only those 750,000 people that can send you home,” Meadows told reporters Tuesday.

“It’s a temporary job, and I’ve known that from day one.”

Meadows’s comments came minutes after President Trump addressed the GOP conference Tuesday, telling members that they could lose their seats — and the House majority in 2018 — if they fail to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

In a battle of bullshitters, President Angry Apricot is going to lose against anyone who is willing to engage him and has at least one more brain cell than he does. So like every bully who receives a request to fuck off that he can’t refuse, the Tangerine Nightmare then squirmed a bit and claimed he was only joking.

“Mark Meadows is a longtime, early supporter of the president,” Spicer told reporters at Tuesday’s briefing. “He had some fun at his expense this morning during the conference meeting.”


In Spicer’s telling, Trump simply “continued to express hope that Congressman Meadows … would continue to see the efforts that have been made to make this better and address a lot of the concerns out there.”

“But he has made it very clear that he was having fun with him,” Spicer claimed. “The president’s committed to making sure that this gets passed.”

Sure. And if cringing and admitting that the empty threat was empty don’t do the trick, the Twitterer in the Dorkness can offer Meadows the cupcake his mom packed in his lunch.
