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

Today on Sunday Face Week Meet Union, corrupt FEMA director Brock Long defended the God-King’s lies about Hurricane Maria’s death toll, saying “There’s a lot of issues with numbers being all over the place … and there is a difference between direct deaths and indirect deaths” and that claiming many of the post-hurricane deaths were due to domestic violence so who cares. Also, Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) said Hurricane Florence would cost his state “billions of dollars” and wondered why the letter accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempted rape wasn’t made public months ago. But the woman who wrote the letter came out today in the Washington Post and explained exactly why she tried to retain her privacy — to avoid smear campaigns like that of Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) who called Democratic opposition to Kavanaugh “an intergalactic freak show” and HBO’s progressive-for-white-men-only Bill Maher, who said the accusation against Kavanaugh “makes us look bad.” As Post reporters verified that the accuser told her story to her therapist in 2012 and has passed a polygraph test … should Kennedy reopen the hearings so she can testify, or would Republicans turn that into another episode of Prosecute the Victim?
