Which reminds me, we still haven't gotten to the bottom of the Trump Tower/Spectrum Health/Alfa Bank

computer server three-way. I bet Erik Prince is in it up to his eyeballs.

Project Very TASS.

Yep. "What's the downside of humoring him?" from Nov. 2020

leads to a full-blown insurrection on Jan. 6.

Speaking about President Trump’s and his legal team’s myriad and baseless claims of massive voter fraud, an anonymous senior Republican official offered a rhetorical shrug.

“What is the downside for humoring him for this little bit of time? No one seriously thinks the results will change,” the official said. “He went golfing this weekend. It’s not like he’s plotting how to prevent Joe Biden from taking power on Jan. 20. He’s tweeting about filing some lawsuits, those lawsuits will fail, then he’ll tweet some more about how the election was stolen, and then he’ll leave.”

And we sent (literally) tons of PPE to China.


Concerns about a dwindling supply of PPE are not new. Back on February 7, the World Health Organization sounded alarm bells about "the limited stock of PPE," noting demand was 100 times higher than normal for this equipment.

Yet the same day as the WHO warning, the Trump administration announced that it was transporting to China nearly 17.8 tons (more than 35,000 pounds) of "masks, gowns, gauze, respirators, and other vital materials." As Secretary of State Mike Pompeo noted in the press release announcing this shipment, "These donations are a testament to the generosity of the American people."

If the moron in the White House had activated the Defense Production Act and gotten the manufacturer in Texas and others cranking out PPE to replace what was sent to China, it might have been OK. But he didn’t, and it was disastrous.

A Name all the world hears with woe
And the wild winds of fortune will carry me onward
Oh whither so ever they blow

Whither so ever they blow
Onward to Glory I go!

I wish the editorial had pointed the finger at REPUBLICANS in Congress

instead of just saying Congress over and over. The real problem here isn’t Trump. The problem is that nearly every Republican in Congress is either fully complicit, shamelessly opportunistic or scared witless. Or even some combination of the three. If most Republicans had stood up to Trump every time he tried violating norms or skirting the law, Donny wouldn’t have gotten very far. He might have thrown in the towel before his term was up.

"What's the downside of humoring him?"

This. This is the downside, idjits.

OMG, The Mark of the Best!!1!

Their concerns are valid.

It was horrifying for them (and us) to see how easily our nation's safeguards could be overturned by one authoritarian asshole and one complicit political party. Thank goodness Biden won, but what happens in 2024? (Or August of this year, according to some.) We're not out of the woods yet.

Ma'am, please hold out the first finger and thumb on your right hand.

OK, put a little super glue on the back side, right between the thumb and the finger.

Now see if that will stick to your forehead.
