Sarah is a nice lady, and she works hard for her clients. She has succeeded without mentorship or partnering up and subjegating herself to a male attorney, like too many very talented women have done. I don't love the ad, but I can look past it.

BTW- My statement today

Good morning. There were some news reports this morning that I want to address. First, my commitment to the success of our President and our country is as strong as it was the day I accepted his offer to serve as Secretary of State. President Trump’s “America first” agenda has given voice to millions who felt completely abandoned by the political status quo and who felt their interests came second to those of other countries. President Trump’s foreign policy goals break the mold of what people traditionally think is achievable on behalf of our country. We’re finding new ways to govern that deliver new victories. Our job is now to achieve results on behalf of America, and we are doing that.
We’ve created international unity around our peaceful pressure campaign against North Korea, including influencing China to exert unprecedented economic influence on North Korea. At the Riyadh summit, the President rallied Muslim-majority nations to assume new responsibilities for stopping terrorism. NATO members are now contributing more to shared security. And our approach to South Asia, and specifically Afghanistan, means building upon our relationships with India and Pakistan to stamp out terrorism and support the Afghan Government in providing security for their own people. And ISIS’s fraudulent caliphate in Iraq and Syria is on the brink of being completely extinguished thanks to an aggressive new strategy led by the President.

What we have accomplished, we have done as a team. Similarly, Secretary Mnuchin has levied economic sanctions on North Korea and related entities. Countries must increasingly decide whether they will do business with North Korea or with the community of peace-loving nations. Ambassador Haley has spearheaded and achieved enormous success, passing the toughest UN sanctions to date on North Korea. General Mattis and I communicate virtually every day, and we agree that there must be the highest level of coordination between our diplomatic efforts and our military efforts. You can’t have a stronger partner than a secretary of defense who embraces diplomacy, and I hope he feels he has the partner he needs at the State Department.

And this is just the beginning of the list of partners and friends across the government who are all working for the American people. There is much to be done, and we’re just getting started.

To address a few specifics that have been erroneously reported this morning, the Vice President has never had to persuade me to remain the Secretary of State because I have never considered leaving this post. I value the friendship and the counsel of the Vice President and I admire his leadership within President Trump’s administration to address the many important agendas of President Trump, both from a foreign policy perspective and a diplomatic – I’m sorry, a domestic objective.

Let me tell you what I’ve learned about this President, whom I did not know before taking this office. He loves his country. He puts Americans and America first. He’s smart. He demands results wherever he goes, and he holds those around him accountable for whether they’ve done the job he’s asked them to do. Accountability is one of the bedrock values the President and I share.

While I’m new to Washington, I have learned that there are some who try to sow dissension to advance their own agenda by tearing others apart in an effort to undermine President Trump’s own agenda. I do not and I will not operate that way, and the same applies to everyone on my team here at the State Department.

When I wake up in the morning, my first thoughts are about the safety of our citizens at home and abroad. There is no more important responsibility I carry with me than ensuring that Americans are safe. Providing for the security of the United States must be the number-one goal of our American foreign policy. President Trump and his administration will keep moving forward as one team with one mission: doing great things for the United States of America to make America great again.

Thank you.

And Rump, love the blog. Widely read at foggy bottom, and you're as Texas as a horned-toad frog rooting for the Cowboys.
Keep it up pardner.

You imagine if The REN ( a venue) was still open and taking Rexy out for some beers and pork belly tacos with organic slaw? Start with some of those plump Apalachicola oysters dipped and battered fried.
Some local skip jack sashimi and poblano peppers stuffed with sweet potatoes.
Yum.
Ahh... I miss the REN (a venue) soooooo much.

What a pair of wackos. I would love to be on the other side of the case of these bimbos. What jury could take these wackos seriously?

the REN is still open. A chinese themed karaoke bar. Bizarre but real. Google and see. It's just no longer run by Shumie with the amazing young ***** chef Juanky Carlos who took the million dollar offer to be the exec chef in Austin.

They had grilled langostinos on Thursday nights. Truffle oil. Sashimi Florida lobster.
Delicately fried spinach leaves. Rangoon crab stuffed mushroom caps.
Some of my favs.

miss the Ren (a venue) said...

They had these red velvet cake balls stuffed with vanilla bean ice cream (home made)
that they would flash fry. Somehow the cake balls came out hot and crusty and delicious and the inside had this delicious ice cream that hadn't melted. It was amazing. That was my fav dish.

Enough with the gluttony....

I do like Titos Handmade Vodka with some peach juice.

Faluja said...

Lately I've been watching mad men and drinking old fashioneds. The key to those is the ONE BIG ice cube. There's a fish place in the Gables on Miracle Mile. Can't remember the name. Clip joint with frozen fish done fancy and high tabs. But I do go for the scenery if you get my drift. But they make a GREAT not good but GREAT Rum old fashioned with the big block of ice in the glass.
Heaven. Well...when shared with some gables receptionist and if I describe any more Rump will ban me.....

Anonymous said...

Oh yeah....plenty of fish in the sea. Especially Thursday night oceans. Joint is Tarpon Bend. Tons of fishes with cute little fins....

As a female, I support the right of any female attorney to dress any way that is professional and appropriate. As an attorney, I object to any woman thinking Legally Blonde is something to aspire to.

Don Draper said...

Rum old fashioned? Pffft you heathen.
You just discovered America with that big ice cube, didn't you, hipster.
They key to an old fashioned is using a great rye, like High West, or Bulleit 95, angostura bitters muddled into a sugar cube, and a scent of orange peel oil. And the big cube.

The last time I was at Tarpon Bend, the two people I was with got (really) sick from the oysters. Luckily, I skipped oysters that night.

How could anyone facing criminal charges put their money and faith in these two? To me, that's the craziest part. I'd be concerned with them representing me on a speeding ticket.

I heard that they got Ken off.

Can we get back on the topic, please?! The Kardasian Lawyers Come To Miami? Really?! I agree Rump, time to hang up my spurs. Game over. The practice of law is no longer a noble profession! Now you know why I tell my friend's kids not to go to law school. Perhaps I should show them this video? Stuff like this makes me ill ...

You realize the irony is these two calling themselves " Barbie"?

Word has it that Dan Lurvey will be joining the Barbies. His famous clients can't wait to see him in pink.

I say good for them. The sole quality of being different doesn't merit automatic criticism. Celebrate what makes you unique, rather than suppress it and apologize for it when it shows.

Anonymous said...

Remember when commenting on a female attorneys dress or calling them Barbie was verboten?

Anonymous said...

I'm not sure watching this will bring in that much business. And, hello, where's the motion to recuse when the defense attorney is making plans with the judge to go shopping at Bal Harbor in open court and on the record?! This isn't just because they are women...this goes to the male attorneys who bring down the profession in similar ways.

Anonymous said...

So I can only assume that the "bimbo" comment is about the appearance of these women? I recognize that they are being touted as "The Barbie Lawyers" since they are wearing pink, but is it impossible for anyone with a penis on this blog get a marketing gimmick.campaign when they see one? You are saying that because of how they look they must be bad lawyers? I am not friends with either of these ladies, but I have seen Sarah fight on both sides of the table in criminal court at the REG as both a prosecutor and a defense attorney. She works very hard for her clients and on her cases and goes the extra mile. Additionally, she is a very nice person.

Rump, you need to get over yourself and stop catering to the few mysogynistic readers you have. I expected better from you.

Anonymous said...

The whole thing is so silly. Think of their premise, we do not look qualified or worthy but get the job done. I watched the promo, the non-Sarah one's grammar is flawed...something unfitting with a person with a law degree.

Their client's deserve what they get

Anonymous said...

I normally wouldn't critize a lawyers' physically however they put themselves out there. The manner of promotion is so silly and really cheapens the profession. Having somebody's fate in your hands is not the same as "getting things done". For all the females that had to overcome chauvinism , this seems counterproductive .

Anonymous said...

Looks like a bad pitch for a reality tv show.

And Judge Glick, what are you thinking? This is obviously a commercial and here you have Judge Glick promoting them.

Prediction: First the Florida Bar Advertising inquiry wherein they ask about why two lawyers are taking selfies with a judge and inviting her to go shopping together. Doesn't that insinuate that if I have a case in front of Judge Glick, that I should hire these two since they are shopping buddies with the judge?

Then comes the JQC inquiry wherein they ask why a sitting judge is appearing in a commercial for attorneys. What's next? One of the county court judges endorsing the Ticket Clinic?

Come on, Barbie Twins, show some respect for your profession. And Come on Judge Glick, show some respect for the judiciary.

I think that the "Barbies" should show that they too are enlightened by the virtue of diversity. They should associate with a male attorney and bring him into the firm. Qualifications? His first name must be Ken.

Anonymous said...

Stacy Glick needs to answer to the JQC.

These two "lawyers"?

They "repossessed" a client's car for failing to pay a bill?

They neither one of them can utter a grammatical sentence?

They toss their business cards into cells?


I'm setting the over/under on the Bar sanctions at 16 months.

@ 1:35, when has Glick ever showed respect for anyone?

Glick has problems here. She was on notice that this was an advertising gimmick and played along. I wonder if I can get Venzer to appear in one of my commercials?

Since you are talking about grammar, check yours- it is their clients not client's.

They should hold a competency hearing in the lobby of REG.

Reading is fundamental, 7:58

"They repossessed a client's car . . . "

That's perfectly correct.

But thanks for playing.
