He's so still when thinking I checked to see if the video was still playing.
I'm also surprised there's anyone that's willing to get even close to this administration.

Well of course they can't hire good help. Good help expects to get paid; there's no way it'd serve a horror show like this administration for free.

:ohsnap:

Also, too (via LGM), Yglesias makes a good observation:

Quote:
But there is still such a thing as common sense. I don’t believe Trump Jr.’s account, and neither should you. He’s a man with negative credibility on this matter, and despite his father’s talismanic invocation of the word “transparency,” he’s been anything but transparent about it.

It’s certainly conceivable that he’s telling the truth and no valuable information changed hands. But when you are caught lying over and over again about a meeting — first by saying it never happened and then slowly being caught out in lie after lie — a reasonable observer is going to doubt you when you claim that this time you’ve fully come clean.

Until Trump Jr. answers a lot more questions and produces a lot more information, there’s no reason to assume good faith on his part. The benefit of the doubt is a valuable commodity, and it’s one that those at the highest levels of Trumpland have squandered.

[…]

But as the old saying says, fool me twice, shame on me. Trump Jr. has already tried to fool us four or five times about this meeting, and there’s absolutely no reason we should trust him. Fox News, tellingly, has in part already moved on to justifying collusion, showing little faith from Trumpworld that the denials of collusion will hold up over the long run. Those of us who aren’t in the tank ought to muster at least the same level of skepticism.

It was just the other day, *checking* how much of a tweet firehose-



Well, okay then.

Starts here:
Propane Jane™ on Twitter: "Nepotism is gonna be what takes them all down too.
Oh, and emails... ☕️ https://t.co/0npqdoWVKy"
Actually before that, she's revisiting some stuff from April, but you can reserve going in depth at your leisure.

Ends about here:
Propane Jane™ on Twitter: "Ivanka Trump implicated in Russia scandal https://t.co/MNM7eGWsyk via @shareblue"

Probably easier to start at the end and start scrolling up until you reach the first, because Twitter threading.

Voter intimidation! We has it!

Quote:
Shortly before the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity is set to have its first meeting on Wednesday July 19 the controversial committee published hundreds of pages from concerned citizens about the group’s work. In some cases, the White House released citizens’ phone numbers and e-mail addresses, seemingly without their knowledge.

Even assuming the best and saying that it's not deliberate, it's indicative of the sort of incompetence that should make everyone leery of having their private voter data handed over to the commission.

Couldn't find any mention of Trump's nomination of John K. Bush to fill a vacancy on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, but this shit is totally off the goddamn rails. The Senate Judiciary Committee voted (11-9, along party lines) to send the nomination to the full Senate.

Nominating people you think will decide cases in a reliably "conservative" manner is one thing. You'd expect nothing different from a GOP administration. But this guy is a garden variety an unhinged lunatic wingnut blogger. Some of his more batshit batshittery is featured in the "Judicial Temperament" section starting on page 4 of this here report. Jesus. Fucking. Fuck.

Hillary Clinton is more unpopular than Donald Trump. Let that sink in | Daniel José Camacho | Opinion | The Guardian

Quote:
According to the latest Bloomberg National Poll, Trump has a net favorability of 41% whereas Clinton has a net favorability of 39%. If Democrats are to escape the political wilderness, they will have to leave Clinton and her brand of politics in the woods.
So, "President" Trump has a net favourability of 41%? Unbelievable ... :facepalm:

It's favorability, not net favorability. His net is -14. And his net job approval is slightly worse, -16.

And it's one poll. Another recent poll found that by a margin of 49 to 42%, Americans would prefer Hillary were president instead of Trump (and a margin of 53 to 40% preferring Obama).

I suspect despite the respondents saying it wasn't the reason, Hillary losing was a big part of her numbers being so bad. Conversely, if she had won she'd probably have gotten a bump in her numbers. I'd like to believe particularly if Democrats had won the Senate and therefore she was able to appoint someone good to the Supreme Court, but I get the impression that that's not worth very much credit in the eyes of petulant leftists who would be disappointed that actually having the presidency doesn't mean you can just yell at Republicans in Congress and get what you want (it doesn't even necessarily work when they're the same party, as Trump is learning).

(Consider the difference in how Ruth Bader Ginsburg is seen compared to the man who appointed her, and how many idiots insisted Clinton would appoint someone who'd support Citizens United despite both of her husband's appointees dissenting in that case, etc.)

I think they might have meant total instead of net? They might have asked about strongly vs somewhat favorable.

I find the chest-beating in the US about how sinister Russia attempted to influence the sacred election process in our country to be the signal flare of people unversed in US history and foreign policy- do they know our government historically has been much more active than Russia in attempting to influence the outcome of foreign elections?
The U.S. is no stranger to interfering in the elections of other countries- LA Times Dec 2016:
Quote:
The U.S. has a long history of attempting to influence presidential elections in other countries – it’s done so as many as 81 times between 1946 and 2000, according to a database amassed by political scientist Dov Levin of Carnegie Mellon University.

That number doesn’t include military coups and regime change efforts following the election of candidates the U.S. didn’t like, notably those in Iran, Guatemala and Chile. Nor does it include general assistance with the electoral process, such as election monitoring.

Levin defines intervention as “a costly act which is designed to determine the election results [in favor of] one of the two sides.” These acts, carried out in secret two-thirds of the time, include funding the election campaigns of specific parties, disseminating misinformation or propaganda, training locals of only one side in various campaigning or get-out-the-vote techniques, helping one side design their campaign materials, making public pronouncements or threats in favor of or against a candidate, and providing or withdrawing foreign aid.
I don't want Russia influencing our elections. But it might make the US look a hair less hypocritical to stop doing this ourselves, or else acknowledge that this is what a number of nations do as a matter of course, including the US.
