“He’s like Heath Ledger’s Joker—but without the operational excellence.” was the grim after-action assessment of Trump, by a senior G7 official who chose to remain anonymous.

Part of suing the Trump Foundation is reporting their misconduct to the IRS, opening Trump up to tax evasion charges.

Pffffhah. Just like a day after I yelled at him on Twitter about it, President Shitpost says he's going to stop family separation via executive order.

It is unfortunate that Congress’s failure to act and court orders have put the Administration in the position of separating alien families to effectively enforce the law.


Oh, that mean Congress. Oh, that mean mean mean mean Congress. Look at that mean Congress, deciding to separate families out of the blue! Whap that mean Congress on the nose why doncha mister president?

Whap it!

Whap. Whap.

I'm sorry, that implies that Trump, like Seymour being out of touch, truly believes that the Democrats are to blame and isn't just gaslighting the fuck out of America on purpose.

Translation: the whole family goes to jail together.

Also, this twitter thread explains why things are going to get much worse:

I can't tell if this is a deliberate riff on Lewandowski's despicable "Womp womp" comment, or just a moment of serene serendipity.

Also, Cohen just blasted Trump's separation policy in his resignation from the RNC

Whether you believe his motives are scuzzy or not, seems like Cohen turning on Trump would be quite a Big Deal.

Nah, it didn't even come to mind. Is just the notion of a fully illusory and theatrical blame-and-punishment game going on.

Cohen's a turd, sure, but "are you okay with toddler gulags y/n" is a not a tremendously difficult moral bar to clear. (Or at least, one would think so.)

I guess the one or two comforts I can take from this are:

1) People are actively reminding each other that This Is Not Normal. I was reading something about A Handmade's Tale that touched on something like that. Previous autocratic/extremist takeovers have often been more incremental. You didn't go from the US to Gilead in one giant leap; first they took women's money, then they forbade women in the workplace, and on and on in little steps that people just sort of accepted. Salami tactics, as they called it in Yes, Prime Minister and others. Remembering that these are very abnormal times is a really important step in opposing Cheeto Benito, and hardly a week goes by where he doesn't give us any new reminders.

2) If marshaling the National Guard is one of the first steps over the Rubicon, I hear it isn't going that well. I heard in a couple spots that a number of the NG troops deployed to the border as additional patrols have mostly been involved in busy work; cleaning up trash and the like. On top of that, I think Maddow said something about how some governors are even talking about disengaging their NG from border-related activities. I'm not 100% sure on all that, though. [citation needed]

I mean, it's all scary as fuck, of course. There's no denying that, unless you actually work for America's Wealthiest Hemorrhoid. But I feel I've gotta hold onto any good I can find, if only for my own mental health.

Well, yeah.

I'd like to HOPE that at least some of the obviously-corrupt and greedy among those in power can pause and say to themselves something like "Look, I just signed up to rob thousands of people, not to steal and sell children like some kind of villain in a Brothers' Grimm folktale."

I know that often "ordinary" criminals often have some self-imposed moral code so they can rationalize their actions and still follow some sort of structure (whether or not they end of following it...). But with the sort of criminals that government attracts, you never know? You know?

Either it's what she really thinks, or she's trying to flip the bird at her husband. Or both?

Watch out next week as she wears a new jacket that says "let them eat cake", with a spokesperson later going "cake is delicious, I don't understand why all the libtards have a problem here".
