Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)

Today the God-King said he would be “honored” to meet North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, despite (or perhaps because of) Kim brutally murdering scores of political opponents and starving his own people. But Outhouse Sewer Spewer Sean Spicer defended the God-King’s fawning over dictators, saying human rights matter only for “our people” (white Americans). And yes, we know he meant only white Americans because today the God-King also wondered whether ending slavery was “necessary.” Fortunately, Vox’s Andrew Prokop reminds us that, unlike previous presidents, the God-King blusters without thinking and his words rarely signal any policy action. Has The Party of Lincoln (as Republicans insistently claim) become The Party of Jefferson Davis?
