He has run before, and everyone pretty much accepted it as a publicity stunt and ignored him... Because, ya know, he has zero business being anywhere near the White House and all.

and he's obviously out of his element, that's undeniable. Only the staunchest of Trump sheep would deny that (tick tock tick tock)

But feel sorry for him? Fuck no. He could have ended this at any time. He ran with it, and along the line I think his ego allowed himself to be convinced that he could actually do the thing (newsflash, he can't).

He allowed himself to be an empty vessel for the worst of the worst, and have given them emense power. He has put this nation in peril.

Fuck him and the iron pyrite plated horse he rode in on.
Amen to every word of this.

I think that might be one of the first times I've seen a picture of El Trumpo smiling.

Welp, buckle up for another weekend in our fun new world.

ICE going door to door asking for papers.

Rumors that Flynn might be out.

Rumors that WH is looking for a new press secretary.

No first lady or even Mrs Pence around to escort the Japanese PM's wife around DC during their official visit. (Not a scary thing, just another example of What Happens When You Have No Idea What You Are Doing And You Fired Anyone Who Might Have Helpful Tips On How To President.)

Kellyanne Conway is going to take Mrs. Abe shopping at Nordstrom for some Ivanka crap.

I agree with most of this, we're becoming a nation of echo chambers. The right has theirs and the left has now almost completely enveloped themselves in theirs. We've had extensive discussions about higher education being "liberal", and I really don't think that's the point, but something has to change in regards to the exchanging of ideas.

We must not become Trump. We must not become the modern day right, where if they don't like it, it's fake, where feelings are more important than facts, where hypocrisy is mainstream.

But BVS, is there really a will for that from the right? Especially the far right? Do you believe they have the slightest interest in listening? Do you think their leaders have the slightest interest in encouraging such behaviour?

I've banged on about this before but, are we not witnessing the prelude of a broken USA. There are two nations here. Not sure geographically (although in a way there's that too) but in terms of ideals, dreams, aspirations.

Surely such a separation is more likely than your entirely reasonable but perhaps impossible suggestion of common sense?

I missed the news that Trump apparently expanded the global gag rule

Quote:
In the past, the policy has applied only to international family-planning funds, which currently total around $600 million. Mr. Trump’s memorandum, however, would apply the policy to “global health assistance furnished by all departments or agencies.” Although reproductive health groups are still studying the memorandum, this language would appear to apply to any international health funding, around $9 billion, used to fight malaria, H.I.V., Zika, Ebola and many other global health threats. This would seem to go well beyond family-planning aid from the Agency for International Development and the State Department, to also include money from all American governmental agencies and departments.
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/26/o...%2Dhealth.html

And it's likely going to bite the US in the ass (just like the anit-vaccination crap).

Quote:
No country is a public health island, and Zika, Ebola, multidrug-resistant tuberculosis or the next health threat will not stop at America’s shores.

You forgot some things. Like US officials confirming that at least some aspects of the intelligence brief of information Russia might have on Trump are correct.
US investigators corroborate some aspects of the Russia dossier - CNNPolitics.com
