We can't be colluding with the Russians! We just bombed their ally.

Whether Trump is a con man or not, he is an incredibly stupid man.

Toby Keith accompanied Trump and will perform a men-only concert in Saudi Arabia.

What a time to be alive.

I heard today's news is that Chaffetz is stepping down.

I look forward to hearing it around 5 PM Pacific Time to keep with the regular cadence of shit pouring down from on high.

Lieberman as FBI Director? Blarg!
But "better" than Bullyani!

I thot the trump wanting Flynn back was a joke.
This is a lot of craziness, and I was around for Watergate. Was thinkng of youse guys the last 2 evenings as I couldn't get to the library for wifi on each new evening's news!
ML I'm not sure who be after Pence, then Ryan. They're both dangerous for so many groups of people! Pence is focused enough to get a lot of that rightwing Rep, Conservative legislation through.

Oh, and thanks tj99 for John Stewart


Going to clean my brain out with some JT tours news! (which I haven't even had time to look in on the tour thread since GE last night of rehearsals)

That is an absolutely shocking cover. Fell at the first hurdle by implying Saint Basil's Cathedral is the equivalent of the fucking White House.

That's really the big issue with his presidency.
The attack apparently happened in connection with a threat to US-backed rebel groups in Southern Syria that, as a condition for the support, are expressly fighting IS. A mix of Syrian army forces and Hezbollah, as well as apparently members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, were about to attack positions of these rebels in order to consolidate areas.

It was reasonable for the US to step in and make clear that it will protect what it considers allies (speaking here in terms of, US Central Command must make a decision that is in line with official policy. The nature of the support, just as the nature of the entire Syrian conflict, is a different story that fills books), but given the situation that the US are in with the current President, every step, even if its coherent by itself, will inevitably called into question and it's impossible to deny there's good reason to.
Trust in the administration's actions has been completely eroded.

The cover must be self-explanatory and its intention be grasped immediately in order to be most effective, so in that light it's legitimate to use what every modestly educated person connects with the seat of the Russian president without thinking. And that is definitely the basilica.

Trumps absolutely finished, he's also incredibly stupid he's actually admitting guilt at every turn. Looks like he'll go down quicker than most of us expected. What a story this is, it'll make some movie one day (if we don't all die in a nuclear fire first).

We keep thinking he's finished, but he's not. The GOP will not impeach him. That would show that they made a mistake electing him from their party.

He's finished, it's just going to take a long time unless he resigns

Fox News is really amazing. They're talking about how Comey not wanting to be hugged by Trump indicates that he's a big snowflake and will freak out over every little goddamn thing and maybe Trump is right, he really is a nut job.

The things you learn when you write from home on a Friday.

(Seriously, given how utterly and pathetically thin-skinned and easily offended Trump is, the right really, REALLY needs to put a sock in it with this "sensitive snowflake" bullshit already.)
