Adding insult to betrayal and genocide, the racist freakshow in the White House says our former allies, the Kurds, are “not angels.”

In Ohio? On Thu Oct 24, at 6:30pm, I’ll be talking about the history and future of #autism  and my book NeuroTribes at the Landmark Centre near Cleveland. Please join us!

One of my favorite autistic writers, @JudyEndow , has a wonderful new book out about how autistic people can thrive on their own terms.

Saw David Byrne’s @americanutopia  last night, a passionate and uplifting tribute to diversity and inclusion by a superb band playing new songs and Talking Heads favorites. Powerful reminder that America is much bigger and wiser than Trumpism suggests; it heals our wounded spirit.

This tweet has it all: The Nazi wannabe with a phony resumé thinking anyone wants to listen to his bullshit; the racism; the demonization of a man who worked all his life to heal the wounds caused by villains like Gorka; projection onto “the Left.” No one will mourn this freak.

To anyone who insists that Trump is not pathologically, grotesquely self-centered, a narcissistic freakshow:HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Get. Him. Out. OUT. *OUT.*

So great to finally meet one of my favorite @NewYorker ⁩ writers, @NickPaumgarten ⁩, a fellow longtime Deadhead who appears in @longstrangetv ⁩, and is as articulate in person as he is on the page.

Saw an advance screening of Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” with my friend Drew. It’s a masterpiece, brilliantly acted (by DeNiro, Pacino, Pesci, etc.), staged, and photographed - a symphony of history, emotion, suffering, and rage. One of the most profound films ever made.

Now that it looks like Deutsche Bank disappeared Trump’s tax returns and scrubbed its servers, it seems like an appropriate moment to mention that Trump’s “special banker” at Deutsche was Justice Kennedy’s son (not mentioned in this recent news).

One of the most brilliant and chilling things ever written about nuclear war, by the late Roger Fisher.

If you ever wondered how the Germans simply went about their business, now you know.

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.

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.

OK, I finally lost it completely: Parisians singing hymns as Notre Dame burns.
