This account of Trump dressing down the top military leaders in this country as “dopes and babies” is grotesque. Imagine going into war for this unfit, illegitimate, draft-dodging, bullying, traitorous ignoramus.

Great to meet autistic attorney @haleymossart ⁩ at the CARD conference in Orlando today. (Paging @EricMGarcia ⁩!)

Very psyched that #FreakFlagFlying , my @osirispod  miniseries of in-depth conversations with @thedavidcrosby  about music, politics, and more has been #4  in Apple music podcasts for days. It’s a hit! Please subscribe. New podcast each Monday for a month.

Vicious anti-LGBT Republican bills target transgender youths, already at high risk of bullying and suicide. These bigots will have blood on their hands.

In-depth investigation reveals widespread coverup of rape, incest, and sexual abuse among the Amish. Women are told by clergy "It's not Christlike" to report it.

I'm so old I remember when a President of the United States would have held the office in such high regard he would not have simply blasted out sheer stinking bullshit like this (official campaign email), as if he was taking a jackhammer daily to the brains of his supporters.

This Mike Pence "prayer" of thanks to Trump is excruciatingly, stomach-churningly uncomfortable to watch. The ritual submission and exaltation is nearly pornographic. This is not America.

Everyone's giggling at this photo, but it's actually horrifying. America is in the grips of sick cult that makes Jonestown and Scientology look like bit players.

Trump supporters demand to know if Navajo congressman is here "illegally." Let that sink in for a moment.

Exactly this. One reason the GOP stays in lockstep to keep the lid on Trump's treason is that if the flag-waving "America First!" base ever realizes they've been punked, suckered, conned, duped by Mitch McConnell to do Putin's bidding, they will freak out.
