Some Dis, Some Dat

The NBA Champion Golden State Warriors may skip the customary White House photo op. Plus other stuff…. (More) “We have not received an invitation to the White House, but will make those decisions when and if necessary” Yesterday CNBC analyst Josh Brown reported that the Warriors had “unanimously declined” the usual White House visit, but the Warriors organization denied that last night: “Today is all about celebrating our championship,” the Warriors said in a statement. “We have not received an invitation to the White House, but will make those decisions when and if necessary.” […] Shortly before the team...

Megyn Kelly, Alex Jones, and Normalizing Abnormality

NBC’s Megyn Kelly says she’ll “shine a light” on conspiracy-monger Alex Jones. But he’s a weed, not a cockroach. (More) “Shining a light works on cockroaches. It doesn’t work on Alex Jones” The parents of those killed at Sandy Hook are especially furious with Kelly for interviewing Jones: One of the immediate critics is a mother whose daughter was killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, a massacre that Jones has dismissed as a government hoax. Nelba Márquez-Greene saw the interview, scheduled to air Sunday – Father’s Day – as an “egregious offense” to fathers whose children were...

Impeachment and ‘Civil War’

Jonathan Chait says Republicans will never impeach the God-King, and Dennis Prager says that’s because the real enemy is … us. (More) Trump is faithfully supporting the conservative agenda, so most conservatives faithfully support him Today many of us will tune into CSPAN-3 at 10am to watch former FBI Director James Comey testify to the Senate Intelligence Committee. If his written opening statement is any guide, he will focus on private conversations in which the God-King pressed him for a pledge of loyalty, attempted to cast their relationship in terms of patronage, and urged him to stop the FBI’s...

The God-King: Stealing from Sick Kids

Just when you thought the God-King couldn’t stoop any lower…. (More) “I don’t care if it’s my son or not – everybody gets billed” Yep, he’s been stealing money from sick kids: The best part about all this, according to Eric Trump, is the charity’s efficiency: Because he can get his family’s golf course for free and have most of the other costs donated, virtually all the money contributed will go toward helping kids with cancer. “We get to use our assets 100% free of charge,” Trump tells Forbes. That’s not the case. In reviewing filings from the Eric...
