Russian asbestos company puts Donald Trump’s face on their product, because why not?

A Russian asbestos company that operates a giant mine in the Ural Mountains is marketing its wares with President Trump’s image, according to photos it posted on social media, citing former EPA administrator Scott Pruitt as well as Trump’s outspoken support for the carcinogen.

The company Uralasbest posted photos of the pallets adorned with a seal with Trump’s face in the center on its Facebook page in June.

“Approved by Donald Trump, 45th President of the United States,” the seal read, according to a translation supplied by the Environmental Working Group, a nonprofit focused on human health and the environment that flagged the posting.

Asbestos, a fibrous silicate mineral that was used widely in industrial and commercial purposes such as construction in the United States, has fallen out of favor in many applications after a large body of scientific evidence connecting exposure to serious health concerns. Its use is restricted in the United States, though it has never been outright banned, as it has been in at least 60 other countries.

Somehow the idea of Donald Trump being forever associated with a cancer-causing product made in Russia just seems right to me. 

Personally, I think they should just use his face as a warning on all dangerous or poisonous products instead of the current icon.

I mean if I saw Trump’s ugly mug on something you can bet your ass I would avoid it like the plague.

    Retired Army Lt. Col. Ralph Peters says Trump’s attacks on NATO are just the latest sign that he’s compromised by Russia.

    “I just think the Russians have the goods on this guy, and that’s the only explanation I can come up with.”

    Peter Strzok Delivers The Russia Knock Out Blow That Republicans Fear The Most

    Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) was trying to discredit Strzok and make him sound un-American when Strzok cut through the BS and cut to the heart of the Russia scandal.


    …Strzok went there, as a hearing that was already a completely unhinged debacle ended up doing nothing but damaging the cover story that Trump and the GOP are trying to spread.

      ‘“Let me start by saying this is a stupid and ridiculous hearing,” Lieu said. “The Judiciary Committee has jurisdiction over immigration. It’s July 12th, 2018. As we sit here today there are nearly 3,000 babies and kids ripped away from their parents by the Trump administration and we’re not doing a hearing on that. We’re doing a hearing into the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails in 2016. That’s just dumb.”’ This tOO>

      “WATCH: FBI’s Strzok talks over protesting hearing chairman to rip Republican questioning his integrity
      “The majority of those texts were work related matters,” Strzok said. “I can assure you those texts represent work, and work that was going on frequently from 5:00 am in the morning until 11:00 pm at night.”

      Despite his comment, Walker continued to attack his character. At this point, Strzok took the lawmaker to task telling him he found his comments “insulting.”

      “I am here under oath. I am not lying. I have never lied under oath and I never will. the insinuation — not even the insinuation, the direct comment that you somehow say you have an integrity issue is insulting. I take offense. It is incorrect,” Strzok said.

      Walker responded: “I never mentioned your personal life. I just simply said the amount of time you were spending on the taxpayers dollar wasting it texting back and forth is a problem.””

      “Arizona Republican claimed to be a “body language expert” and delivered a confused speech on American government during hearings about FBI agent Peter Strzok’s conduct during the 2016 election on Thursday.

      Rep. Paul Gosar (R) is a Phoenix dentist who was elected to Congress in the Tea Party wave of 2010.”
      ““I’m a dentist, OK? So I read body language very, very well. And I watched you comment in your interactions with Mr. Gowdy. You got very angry in regards to the Gold Star father,” Gosar said. “That shows me that it’s innately a part of you and a bias.”” “We are not a democracy. We are a Constitutional Republic,” Gosar claimed. “That is why we have, ah, uh, two ways, both from an, uh, democracy, voting, and then from, the, uh, where we have the, uh, electoral college.”

      Gosar was then cut off by his Republican colleague.”

        Being a dentist doesn’t make you an expert in body language. What a fucking PRICK. On top of being a flaming idiot.

      “The Republican Party stOOped to a whole new level of shame during Thursday’s clown show in the House of Representatives when they questioned FBI agent Peter Strzok.

      The most stunning development throughout the entire proceeding was how each GOP congressman attacked Strzok’s extramarital affair with former FBI attorney Lisa Page – and they did it with a straight face.”

    Maybe it’s appropriate to have Don the Con’s face on Russian asbestos. We all know how bad asbestos is for you.

    FYI “Professions Associated with Worst Asbestos Exposure

    Family members of asbestos industry workers also bear an elevated risk of developing an asbestos-related disease due to secondhand exposure. Workers often unknowingly brought asbestos dust home with them on contaminated clothing and tools.”

    I’m wondering when Putin will bestow the Order of Lenin on Trump for allowing Russia to rule the US without firing a single shot?

    OT?>AIRFORCE ONE: “Aside from updating the color scheme, Trump reportedly wants to upgrade the presidential bed, replacing the current couch-like bunk with something bigger and more comfortable. But he won’t even get to enjoy these changes unless he’s reelected: Boeing’s (BA, +1.59%) two 747s need to be converted from commercial aircraft to a presidential transport, and are unlikely to hit the skies before January of 2021.”

      OMG, remember how trump went on and on during the campaign that he “didn’t need” Air Force One.

      Now he is going to redecorate it, with his bad, tacky taste I cringe to think what it will look like; gold with mirrors and trump stamped on everything.Basically a flying bordello.

      • Anonymous July 13, 2018 at 8:08 pm

        Not redecorate. The changes he wants means two new planes to replace the current Air and a spare.

    As long as they don’t ship their asbestos to the USA and keep it in Russia they can put little donnie’s picture all over it. they could only do one better by putting Scott Pruitt on it.

    I wonder if this is another ploy by the russians to ruin the name of the USA. remember when the US sent food to war torn countries and they changed they markings on the outside so the people wouldn’t know it was coming from the US. So the russians put trump on asbestos, send it to third world countries and when everyone gets cancer they will blame the US.

      That sounds like a Russian tactic.

    Now that Shine is in the saddle, it’s Mooch 2.0: Kelly is being humiliated, Sarah Sanders has been deemed low energy, and the biggest winner of all is, naturally, Sean Hannity.

    ormer Fox News co-president Bill Shine has only been White House deputy chief of staff for communications for less than a week, but he’s already becoming one of Donald Trump’s closest confidants. “Trump absolutely loves the guy,” a Republican close to Trump and Shine told me. Sources familiar with the relationship said Trump was effusive about Shine’s production of the much-hyped prime-time rollout of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Monday night. “Shine brought in all new lights,” a person briefed on the production said. “He gave Trump what’s called a ‘downlight.’ Trump’s a little fat, but that made him look younger.”

    The ascent of Shine, who was ousted from the network for his handling of its myriad sexual harassment scandals, has intensified speculation in the West Wing that the president’s long-suffering chief of staff and nemesis, John Kelly, will soon be departing. Kelly opposed the hiring of Shine and has seen his role continue to be diminished, sources said, sometimes in humiliating ways. “They’ve basically stopped telling Kelly when meetings are. People leave him off the calendar,” one administration official told me. “When he finds out, he storms into the room and is like, ‘What’s going on?’” A Republican close to the White House told me that Trump hopes Shine’s expanding role will encourage Kelly to quit. “Trump is too chickenshit to fire Kelly himself,” the source said. The strategy is reminiscent of the president’s decision to hire Anthony Scaramucci as communications director in July 2017 to drive out then-chief of staff Reince Priebus. “This is a more subtle version of Scaramucci,” an outside adviser to the White House told me.

    Unlike Scaramucci, however, Shine is keeping his head down. Republicans who have spoken with Shine say he’s quietly looking under the hood of the White House’s messaging operation. The administration official said that Shine thinks Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is doing “O.K.,” but he eventually wants to bring in someone with “more energy.” (In June, CBS reported that Sanders was planning on leaving the White House by the end of the year.)

    The most significant beneficiary of Shine’s growing portfolio is Trump’s unofficial press secretary: Sean Hannity. “Sean is very happy. Bill Shine is his best friend,” said a Republican who spoke with Hannity after Shine’s hiring. Hannity has already seemingly benefitted from Shine’s appointment. Shine timed Kavanaugh’s announcement to the start of Hannity’s 9 P.M. Fox News show, in part to reward Hannity with monster ratings that a huge news event generates. (Trump announced Neil Gorsuch’s nomination at 8 P.M.) “Everyone at the White House knew this was about Sean’s ratings,” the Republican told me. Hannity has also been working behind the scenes to get Shine elevated to chief of staff. One source who spoke with Hannity said Hannity was bad-mouthing Kelly. “Hannity said Trump really can’t stand Kelly,” the source said. “He’s fed up.” (The White House didn’t respond to a request for comment.)

    Commie Bitch! ‘While retaining legal counsel is Stein’s right, it is also not a recount, the justness of which may be left for those gave to that cause to decide.’
