You know, every time you think this administration can't sink any lower, they go and prove you wrong. Now they're telling immigrants "leave the country with your kids — or leave the country without them."


I keep trying to tell myself that it's possible to be a Trump supporter and still be a good person — surely, at least, some Trump supporters are just deluded and/or naive, and are not knowingly supporting cruel and evil policies promoted by cruel, ignorant, and evil people — but it's getting harder and harder to believe that.

I guess it's useful to compare to other historical examples.

Were all ordinary Nazi supporters cruel and evil, or deluded and naive? Is the average person cruel and evil? How much more cruel and evil was the average Nazi vs. the average person?

Or that piece, Who Goes Nazi?

A lot of people are just authoritarians, who will follow the leader. I imagine quite a few who joined up to fight for the US or the UK or other allies were authoritarian followers too. But if they had been Germans or Japanese, they wouldn't have questioned whether they were on the right side. And vice versa - a lot of those Nazis and Japanese soldiers would've been fighting just as hard on the other side if they had been born American or French or Chinese.

Michael Del Moro on Twitter: "Per NBC, there were actually 16 investigations of Pruitt as of last week. The one investigation that was completed found that he had broken the law. There are 15 still ongoing."

The only reason Pruitt's gone is that Trump & coven have found someone worse, right?

I wish I could stop the editor from doing that. I want to see all the tags! ALL THE TAGS!

Original falsehood by POTUS
"Germany is totally controlled by Russia because they will be getting from 60% to 70% of their energy from Russia, and a new pipeline, and you tell me if that's appropriate because I think it's not and I think it's a very bad thing for Nato."

EU figures suggest Russia is responsible for between 50% and 75% of Germany's gas imports, but gas makes up less than 20% of Germany's power production.

So Trump is stirring it with NATO and slating Germany for its dependence on Russia (bad) because he doesn't know the facts. His figures are off by 400%. Sad!

From the wording, it does not forbid same-sex-couple adoptions outright, but leaves it up to the states. The result is likely to be a patchwork of state laws on this subject, with some states accepting SSC adoptions and some rejecting such adoptions.

That may not be satisfactory for the opponents of such adoptions, however.

Yeah, I should have done some pull quotes or found a less hyperbolic headline. I think I had something on the go and just wanted to post that at the time.

My main takeaway from this looks like a Bizarro World civil rights act, but I'm a foreigner with a strong sense of federalist. The whole state's rights thing feels very alien.

Semi-related, that whole Roe v Wade thing is a case of federal law superseding state law if I understand that correctly. Gonna be interesting to see which states see an uptick in coat hanger sales once this SCOTUS gets done with it.
