Just a note of appreciation for: YUI YOSHIDA

Yui, thank you for managing the Asian Group, doing a damn good job of it, and so often finding great videos to share with the entire Democratic Underground community. You are witty, smart, vigilant for justice, and fierce. I have been so happy that you've returned to DU and the Asian Group. I wish you and Juju all good things.

(Thank you very much!)

The First Joke Trevor Noah Remembers: Wonderful Story

Has anyone else noticed Trump can't spell "collusion"?

In the recent stories about Trump's statement today, many reports included an enlarged image of the typed pages from which Trump read. On one page, Trump had scrawled "There was no colusion."

A couple points here. I don't think this was a result of being rushed: he took the time to dot the "i," after all. And Trump has never, to my knowledge, claimed to be dyslexic (and if he were, I'd give him a pass on this). Rather, the mistake seems typical of someone who's somehow managed to get through his entire life doing as little reading as he could get away with, and was in keeping with his many other misspellings on Twitter ("unpresidented," "hearby," "lose" vs. "loose," etc.)--but this one struck me as worse than all the rest.

Here's what we're left with: Our president is operating on such a rudimentary reading level that, after being obsessed with the word "collusion" for over a year, he still can't spell it.

I mean, honestly: Let that sink in for a minute.

Thomas L. Friedman: "Trump and Putin vs. America"

The NYT just published a great piece by Friedman. Here are four paragraphs, followed by a link to the piece in its entirety.

There is overwhelming evidence that our president, for the first time in our history, is deliberately or through gross negligence or because of his own twisted personality engaged in treasonous behavior — behavior that violates his oath of office to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Trump vacated that oath today, and Republicans can no longer run and hide from that fact. Every single Republican lawmaker will be — and should be — asked on the election trail: Are you with Trump and Putin or are you with the C.I.A., F.B.I. and N.S.A.?

It started with the shocking tweet that Trump issued before he even sat down with Putin this morning: “Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!” The official Twitter account of the Russian foreign ministry — recognizing a useful idiot when it saw one — immediately “liked” Trump’s tweet and later added: “We agree.”

I’ll bet they do.
