Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)
Today the God-King predicted that yesterday’s shooting in Paris will help French wingnut Marine Le Pen in next week’s presidential elections because Le Pen is the most Islamophobic candidate in the race. Little Green Footballs’s Charles Johnson notes that both the God-King and Le Pen play into terrorists’ hands with by hyping fear to justify war with Islam. But pragmatic centrist Emmanuel Macron still leads in most polls. Meanwhile, today the God-King signed an executive order that, Matthew Yglesias writes, “a clear flashing light that the notion of a Trump-era GOP as an economically populist “workers’ party” is dead, and business interests rule the roost.” Given the God-King’s privileged background and uber-wealthy ‘peer’ circle, should anyone be shocked that his ‘populism’ was never more than white male supremacy?
