Asshole's campaign is running short of cash

so he's now doing prime time rallies by calling them "Press conferences". Beautiful. Way to get all the networks to cover all your repeated lies and imagined grievanvances for free. Once again he's playing the media for suckers and they're going along.

Justice Department moves to replace

Trump's private defense in the slander suit against Trump. This was just reported on Lawrence O'Donnell (link from BBC below*). Not only is this move -unheard of before now - designed to economize Trump's money by letting the taxpayers pay for his defense on this charge. It also means that, if approved by the court the suit will be thrown out because the slanderous language complained of was made while Trump was President "in the scope of his official duties" and, since the government can't be sued under the doctrine of sovereign immunity it will therefore be dismissed.

Barr has now made it clear that the entire Department of Justice is Trump's private (free) law firm. Great way to beat all those legal bills, Donnie.
==================================================================
*The US Department of Justice has taken legal action to defend President Donald Trump in a defamation case from a woman who accuses him of raping her.

Under a court filing, the department is moving to replace the president's private lawyers and take over the case.

Columnist E Jean Carroll accuses Mr Trump of assaulting her in a Manhattan department store in the 1990s.

"remdisresevoir"

The Moron-on-Chief can't even bother to learn the name of the drug that has shown some possibility to be of therapeutic use in treating Covid-19. If Dummy died of dysentery they'd be able to bury him in a shoebox.

Best description of Dumpy yet

I was reading an excellent piece by a British writer (published by another DUer yesterday) explaining why Britons don't like Trump . In it, one phrase has doggedly stuck in my mind. I believe it is possibly the best description of Trump (as evidenced by his historic meltdown yesterday). He described Trump as follows:

"Trump is the Picasso of pettiness and the Shakespeare of shit".

It's said that some scientists from the CDC were trying to

explain to Trump about the epicenter of the virus, to which Trump supppsedly replied "Yeah, the Epicenter. I know that place. That's where Mickey Mouse is".

Probably apocryphal but it still fits. In the words of another DUer, "If Trump had a brain he'd take it out and play with it".

We are well and truly fucked with this 'leeadership'.

Stupid question

I try and keep up with political trends, with particular interest on what our 'friends' in RW La La land are doing but I have to admit something I saw yesterday has me stumped:

Driving in the Tampa Bay area I was passed by the usual Billy Bob in his coal-rolling, no muffler pickup. Nothing particularly special about that here in central Florida. But what has me puzzled is a huge flag he was flying from the tailgate. It was the American flag but all red removed and instead some black and some blue stripes.

Will someone be kind enough to put me out of my misery and explain the "significance" of this flag?

More thanks for the new hearts! I was definitely not expecting

additional hearts but, lo and behold, not just one but two new hearts arrived. Thank you kind fellow DUer's for such a nice gesture. It really made my whole week!

My cup runneth over! 3 hearts! Thank you, kind fellow

DU'er for such a nice surprise!

Thanks to the kind DU'er who gave me a second heart.

It is appreciated more than you know.

To the kind DU'er who unexpectedly gave me a heart

THANK YOU! I'm not sure it's deserved but it certainly is appreciated!
