The loathsome Tucker Carlson is, like most right wing pundits, quite upset that teenagers are actually engaging our political process and demanding change to keep them safe in schools. He says they’re being exploited by adults and they’re just like Mao’s guards. (more…) Read more

Gabe Sherman, who has excellent connections at the White House, quotes his sources saying that Trump is going uber-Trump now, feeling his oats and flying by the seat of his pants in firing those he has clashed with. And he isn’t done yet. Those sources say Sessions will be replaced by Scott Pruitt and, most alarmingly, National Security Adviser HR McMaster will be replaced by John Bolton. (more…) Read more

The Republicans abruptly ended the House Intelligence Committee investigation into Russian interference and possible collusion (not the same thing) and claimed there was no evidence that Russia tried to help Trump win.

Deranged far-right crackpot Liz Crokin is channeling messages from Q again, throwing in a little numerology and telling her exceedingly dull followers that Clinton campaign manager John Podesta is going to be arrested “very soon.” In fact, it should have happened already. But maybe not. But it could be. But soon. Because pedophiles. And stuff. (more…) Read more

The firing of Rex Tillerson and transfer of Mike Pompeo wasn’t the only weird thing to happen with Trump administration officials on Tuesday. Trump’s personal assistant, who did things like give him massages, was escored out of the White House and fired for an “unspecified security issue,” but then was immediately hired by the Trump 2020 campaign.
