“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”

The strategizing took place between Obama Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Chicago Mayor, former Obama White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel.
The Post published an email thread shared by Duncan and Emanuel on December 16, 2012:
At 6:57PM EST on December 16, 2012, Duncan wrote to Emanuel in a message titled “CT shootings.”
Duncan asked the Chicago mayor, “What are your thoughts?”
Five minutes later, Emanuel responded, “Go for a vote this week before it fades. Tap peoples emotion. Make it simple assault weapons.”
Duncan responded immediately, “Yup- thanks.”
“When I did brady bill and assault weapons for clinton we always made it simple. Criminals or war weapons,” Emanuel said in the email to Duncan.
“Gun show loophole?” Duncan responded. “Database? Cop-killer bullets? Too complicated?” he said.
“Cop killer maybe,” Emanuel responded. “The other no.”
The exchange ended when Duncan concluded with, “Got it.”
The thread shows Duncan making sure the gun control push was streamlined and fashioned to appeal to Americans at a time when hearts were broken over the heinous crimes that occurred at Sandy Hook. It completely overlooked the fact that Connecticut was had the 5th most stringent gun controls in the country at the time of the attack, that the guns the attacker used were stolen, and that the attack occurred in a gun-free zone.
Emanuel put it best when he said, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”
Foul-mouthed, wretchedly unfunny Michelle Wolf, who gets her kicks out of ridiculing and denigrating people, was universally punched in the mouth for her low humorless gag-me gig at the White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington DC on Saturday night.
This skin-crawlingly unattractive woman was particularly called out for her cruel criticism of the appearance of Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, who endured the hurtful harangue about her looks, wardrobe and character with quiet dignity.
The annual dinner is supposed to celebrate journalism, not sink to the lowest level of humanity. But of course, when you think about it, that’s where journalism has sunk to these days.

‘SO-CALLED COMEDIAN BOMBED’
TRUMP IN WASHINTON, MICHIGAN:

The White House Correspondents’ Association has joined in the criticism of comedian Michelle Wolf— releasing a statement on Sunday, denouncing her routine.
“Last night’s program was meant to offer a unifying message about our common commitment to a vigorous and free press while honoring civility, great reporting and scholarship winners, not to divide people,”said WHCA President Margaret Taley.
“Unfortunately, the entertainer’s monologue was not in the spirit of that mission.”
Talev, a reporter for Bloomberg News, wrote that many journalists in attendance on Saturday night for the annual correspondents’ dinner reached out to her and expressed their “dismay” with Wolf’s monologue, which was widely panned by people on both sides of the aisle.
