On What Planet?

Old Lard Ass doesn't personally manage this Twitter account, but rather minion Dan Scavino. Still, OLA is responsible for it, and once in a while retweets from it to the one he does on his own.

What gangs and cartels are flooding our country?  And which of our cities have been turned into "warzones"?

I've been seeing lots of stories of law-abiding family men being deported lately, but I have yet to see one where a criminal alien was even harassed, much less deported.

Scavino gets tough with more than just gangs and cartels.

Even the picture chosen to place on the account is tough, eh?

Here's the avatar on OLA's personal Twitter account.

Not so tough.  Slightly prissy.  Still frowny.  Or is that squinty?  Does he need glasses?

Speaking of Minion Scavino, he seems to have made it past an earlier allegation of violating the Hatch Act. At least for now.
The alleged violation centers around a tweet that Trump senior adviser Dan Scavino made Saturday when he labeled Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) a “liability” and called on him to be primaried in next year’s congressional elections.

Scavino was lashing out at Amash for being a member of the House Freedom Caucus, the conservative wing of the House that the Trump administration has been bashing after their recent failure to pass health care reform. But according to Richard Painter, a University of Minnesota law professor who served as the chief ethics lawyer for the Bush White House from 2005 to 2007, Scavino violated federal law with the tweet.


Painter was referencing the fact that Scavino’s personal Twitter account features an avatar of him in the Oval Office — essentially a representation of him as a government official.


The Hatch Act is a law passed under former President Franklin Roosevelt that prevents all federal government employees — with exceptions to the president, vice president and certain other high-ranking political offices — from using their positions in the government to influence or sway elections.


“This is use of official position to influence an election. Look at the photo and description underneath.


“Ethics 101- You can’t put official titles and WH photos all over your “personal” Twitter page and use it for partisan politics. Hatch Act,” he added.

Apparently you can. It's a brave new world.
