Thursday's Campaign Round-Up, 2.1.18

MSNBC

Today’s installment of campaign-related news items from across the country.

* The exodus continues: House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), perhaps best known for leading an absurd Benghazi investigation, announced yesterday he won’t seek re-election in the fall.

* On a related note, Rep. Bob Brady (D-Pa.), who’s political operation has been the subject of a federal investigation, also announced his retirement.

* Speaking of Democrats who’ve faced investigations, Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) will not be retried on federal corruption charges. In the wake of a recent mistrial, federal prosecutors announced yesterday they’re dropping their case.

* The latest Monmouth University poll offers a lot of encouraging news for Republicans: Donald Trump’s approval rating in the survey is up to 42%; the GOP’s tax breaks for the rich are now more popular; and the Democratic lead on the congressional generic ballot, at least in this poll, is just two points.

* In a move that’s bound to shake up Minnesota’s gubernatorial race, state Attorney General Lori Swanson (D) announced this week she’s running for re-election to her current post.

* In a move we’re likely to hear more than once in the coming months, former Rep. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.), on the comeback trail now that he’s been released from prison, suggested this week his own conviction was the result of Justice Department corruption.

* Todd Ricketts has officially taken over as the RNC’s new finance chair, and Trump said he “couldn’t be happier” about the move. Of course, two years ago at this time, Trump had a very different opinion of the Ricketts family.

* The president this morning claimed that his State of the Union address this week had “the highest number” of viewers “in history.” He appears to be shamelessly lying.

Win, Lose or Draw: First jobs of animation sensations

OANN2

February 1, 2018

By Chris Taylor

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Think of the golden age of American animation, and the mind tends to go back to the days of Walt Disney and Steamboat Willie.

Yet with computer animation and the advent of storytelling powerhouses like Pixar, animators now are turning out some of the greatest works of art the field has even seen.

With that in mind, for the latest in Reuters’ “First Jobs” series, we talked to some of America’s best cartoonists and animators about entering the workforce – and it was not always at a drawing board.

Bob Mankoff

Cartoon editor; “Esquire”; former cartoon editor, “The New Yorker”

First job: Teaching speed reading

Back in the 1960s, there was a speed-reading craze. The idea was that we usually read one word at a time, but our eyes can actually see much more than that.

They even had a whole machine for it, with a dial and a bar that went down the page at a certain speed. You could actually train yourself to read faster. So I became a teacher at a school called Evelyn Wood, and had to schlep these horrible machines all around town.

I taught at a Catholic girls’ school. My standard joke was, ‘Read faster or you’ll burn in hell!’ But the worst thing I ever did was that when I wanted to stop teaching, I lied and told my bosses I had stomach cancer. That sure stopped the conversation. That was it, and I was out.

Marc Ceccarelli

Co-executive producer (with Vince Waller) of “SpongeBob SquarePants”

First job: Making Halloween masks

My first actual job was working at a mask company in North Hollywood. We made Halloween products, mostly masks and props. I got the job because I had made a sculpture of a rat standing on its hind legs.

Every year we would go to Halloween product conventions, and five of us had to figure out new ways of sculpting the usual masks like witches, skulls and Frankensteins. There are only so many different monsters you can do. But we also had licensed products, so we got to sculpt Star Wars masks like Yoda.

It was a very toxic job, because there are a lot of chemicals and resins and foam and fiberglass and clay dust. Unfortunately, this job set off my allergies, so I had snot pouring out of my nose every day.

That job did teach me about deadlines, though. You have to get things done by a certain time, and that is how you keep working in Hollywood. If you can handle deadlines in this business, then people will give you more work.

David Silverman

Director of 24 “The Simpsons” episodes and “The Simpsons Movie”

First job: L.A. Times cartoonist

In 1979 I started working for Pulitzer Prize-winning music critic Martin Bernheimer of the L.A. Times. He did little vignette stories of things that were happening in the world of music, and they wanted a cartoonist who had a feeling for musicians.

That led to other freelance work, like a line of piano books for Alfred’s Publishing. I did drawings related to the lessons, which I believe are still in existence. They would let me do pretty wacko stuff.

I didn’t get lot of money for those things, but it wasn’t really about how much they were paying me. I would still really go for it and try my best. Eventually I caught the eye of Disney animators. So looking back on my career, I wouldn’t have done anything different. It was all kind of happenstance.

Lee Unkrich

Director of multiple Pixar films including “Toy Story 3” and “Coco”

First job: Country club busboy

When I was 16, I worked briefly as a busboy at a fancy country club in northeast Ohio. Basically my job was to fill water glasses, put the butter pats out, and help serve the buffet.

The only reason I took the job was that I had just got a car, a ’63 Plymouth Valiant given to me by my Great Aunt Betty. I was a huge fan of Stanley Kubrick’s movie “The Shining,” and all I wanted in life was to own vanity plates that said ‘Redrum’. I thought it would be funny for drivers to look in their rear-view mirror and see ‘Murder’ approaching.

The day my plates came in the mail, I quit. That was my first and last time in the service industry. I drove away with my Redrum plates and never looked back.

White House officials see Trump as 'a...

MSNBC

A couple of years ago, Scott Pruitt had some unkind words for Donald Trump. The Oklahoma Republican appeared on a radio show at the time and argued, among other things, that if Trump were elected president, he’d be “abusive” toward the Constitution.

Evidently, my assumptions about Pruitt always being wrong were mistaken.

Trump, of course, went on to win anyway, and he tapped Pruitt to lead the EPA. Confronted with his 2016 quote this week, Pruitt initially said he didn’t recall making the comments – it was an untenable posture given the recording of the interview – before rejecting his previous assessment in a rather striking way.

“After meeting him, and now having the honor of working for him, it is abundantly clear that President Trump is the most consequential leader of our time,” Pruitt explained. “No one has done more to advance the rule of law than President Trump. The president has liberated our country from the political class and given America back to the people.”

Pruitt could’ve just explained that his 2016 comments were made in the middle of a contentious primary season, when rhetoric was running hot, but in Trump World, that wouldn’t suffice. He had to reject his previous assessment by praising Trump in a Dear Leader sort of way.

The story came a week after Deputy White House Press Secretary Hogan Gidley appeared on “Fox & Friends” and described Trump as “a real-life Superman.”

New York’s Olivia Nuzzi, meanwhile, was interested in learning more about the president’s speechwriting team ahead of Trump’s State of the Union address. She received an interesting response from the White House:

“Unfortunately we will not be able to facilitate an interview with the speechwriting team,” Lindsay Walters, a deputy press secretary, told me in an email. “On record,” she added, “when President Trump communicates with the American people, his words are his own and come directly from his heart. His unparalleled ability to speak to and connect with people from across the country, including those who have felt forgotten by Washington for many years, will never waver.”

You know, there was a time in which the political world teased Barack Obama’s aides for speaking highly of him. Those days seem quaint now.

I’m mindful of the circumstances, of course. Perhaps Scott Pruitt felt he had to gush over Trump because he feared getting fired. Maybe Hogan Gidley described Trump as “a real-life Superman” because he assumed his boss was watching.

Perhaps Lindsay Walters used a creepy description of the president’s rhetorical abilities because, well, I’m not altogether sure why.

The point is, it’s one thing for people in the president’s orbit to offer their support; it’s something else to see adults go this far. If the goal is to help persuade the public about Trump’s perceived greatness, the over-the-top praise almost certainly has the opposite effect.
