A round up of Trumpian events 🖕🍊🤡


#7465

Surprise surprise

That seems to be the main point of the scotus for repubs these days – to come up with ways to keep their demographically dwindling party in power.


#7466

Yep. Right up their alley.


#7467

Yup. And it’s working.

Electoral corruption is a one-way ratchet.

Get control of the legislatures, use that control to impose gerrymandering / disenfranchisement / voter suppression, then use that electoral advantage to ensure that the legislature remains controlled. And then use that legislative power to neuter any potential challenge from the judiciary.

It’s why I’ve been pushing for non-electoral responses. Those aren’t easy or safe options, but the easy and safe route is no longer available.


#7469

Unfuck her:


#7470

The fuck kind of bullshit “maintenance” is this?


#7472

#7473

But from Fox’s perspective, Trump is no longer a sure bet to beat Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity or Laura Ingraham.

Would they be willing to fall on their swords to restore Trump’s coverage?


#7474

And if they do not have a sword, one could be provided to them. I’ll go get my whetstone.


#7475

During the interview, Trump also discussed her child-welfare initiative, Be Best, which includes a focus on combating cyberbullying.

“I could say I’m the most bullied person on the world,” the first lady said.

If nothing else, she shares her husband’s lack of empathy and his gift for hyperbole.


#7476

The kind that maintains the status quo, presumably.


#7477

Russian Toolbox for US Conservatives

“The conservative site, run by the blogger John Hawkins, had created a series of new Facebook pages and accounts over the last year under many different names, according to Facebook.”

“After Dr. Blasey testified, Right Wing News posted several false stories about her — including the suggestion that her lawyers were being bribed by Democrats — and then used the network of Facebook pages and accounts to share the pieces so that they proliferated online quickly, social media researchers said.”


#7478

Also news from this, Kanye’s very weak iPhone passcode


#7479

Ouch.

“At press time, staffers confirmed Trump was growing morose and irritable after banging the protruding head of the spike on the doorframe of Air Force One while attempting to deplane.”


#7480

This just in: Meliana Trump considers herself “one of the world’s most bullied people”.


#7481

Oh how I long for the days of Eazy-E going to a dinner at the GHW Bush White House (which apparently he wasn’t even supposed to have been invited to) being some huge controversy.


#7482

TI rules!


#7483

We just saw Mr.West’s Soul on auction.

Did it include a shredder?


#7484

So, we don’t have a thread called “A Round Up of ZERO F’ing Resistance to Trump” so I’ll leave this here:

"…included 12 district judges and three lifetime-appointed circuit judges."

Spineless.


#7485

So, we’ve officially entered “arresting political opponents for their party affiliation” territory.


#7486

We’ve entered the Dukes of Hazzard stage.
