The rest of what’s happening: more Trump, church exodus in Norway, and mingling of Christianity and gov’t.

Here’s a bunch of stuff that didn’t make it onto the blog today, but which caught my eye anyway. The NYT editorial board published an op-ed on Trump’s tendency to breathe strength into conspiracy theories: Mr. Trump has seized on the charge that Hillary Clinton plans to win by cheating.

Play Doh narrative on Trump isn’t wholly fair, but he should still take a hit for $100k donation to Tony Perkins.

Last week the governor of Louisiana told Donald Trump to stay away from the state so that resources weren’t diverted from recovery efforts from recent flooding.  Trump ignored him to show up and help unload some supplies for literally less than a minute before leaving. Now, to be fair, the media is actually being a [Read More…]

Gov. Sam Brownback, who tanked Kansas’ economy, now advising Trump on economics.

I teach private voice lessons at a small high school in east-central Kansas.  The two teachers who run the theater program there work tightly with me, which allows me to use the school building to teach. It also makes me acutely aware of what Gov. Sam Brownback has done to the economy.  Brownback’s economic policies [Read More…]

Also not joking, Michele Bachmann is advising Donald Trump on foreign affairs.

In Trump’s quest to, in his words, “hire the best people,” he’s apparently added wingnut Michele Bachmann as an adviser on foreign affairs.  The Hill reports: Tea Party firebrand Michele Bachmann says she is advising Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on foreign policy.

Not joking: a 12-year-old boy is running a Trump campaign office in Colorado.

I saw this headline today and couldn’t believe it was true: Then I saw it popping up from news outlets I trusted and, after digging, I can confirm that it’s true: a 12-year-old boy is running a campaign office in a swing state for the Trump campaign: In one of the most important counties in [Read More…]

Donald Trump says he doesn’t trust US intelligence, won’t use them if elected President.

Ok, this is all I will post today because the wife is assaulting me with birthday snuggles. This will surprise you, but Donald Trump continues to not-so-subtly beg sensible people to not vote for him.  Yesterday he received his first intelligence briefing from the CIA.  Today, he claims he wouldn’t use US intelligence if elected [Read More…]

Yeah, things are looking good, but there’s no situation where anybody should get complacent.

I know I’ve posted a lot lately about how Trump’s campaign is comically disintegrating.  That’s all true, but before I scoot off for voice lessons today I wanted to post a warning: Complacency is how we still lose this.

Co-Chair of Trump’s national veterans’ coalition: “Hillary Clinton should be shot for treason.”

Let’s be generous, super generous, beyond any sane levels of generous and say that when Trump joked about 2nd Amendment supporters using violence if Clinton gets to appoint SCOTUS Justices that he was actually, as he has said, making a statement about political organizing to get him elected (even though the statement was made in the [Read More…]
