Donald Trump’s day so far:
– After attacking LeBron’s intelligence, Trump misspells “its”
– Michael Jordan sides with LeBron
– #ObamaDay is trending
– Maria Butina confesses Trump connections
– Roger Stone goes berserk after getting word he’ll be indicted
– It’s still only 5pm

Trump tweets that he has signed an Executive Order outlawing Obama Day.
Melania would like a word with Palmer Report.
That picture of 44 and Putin is a laugh. Fuck you and your orange poodle, Vladimir.
This almost seems worse than not getting rid of both MAGA and Fake News merch:
@Frankensteinbeck: I saw earlier on Mediate that he said Nunberg was a drunk with a small p.e.n.is., so that might show a tad bit of concern. If he had said a maniac with a small p.e.n.is, then we would know he was talking about trump.
Much ado about nothing, but I haven’t been able to turn left out of my neighborhood for a month due to road construction. What is left for me is Fresh Market, Trader Joe’s and Home Depot. Google maps is telling me they are opening the road, so I expect to be out and about tomorrow. wahoo Actually the son is coming over to help me get wood for the retaining wall from HD. There is an alternative route but it involve a six lane divided road, and I prefer not to do that with wood hanging out of the trunk.
Seeing those photos of Barack Obama is so bittersweet. Every now and then I have to remind myself that he was really our president. We really did enjoy 8 years of that extraordinary family representing us to the world. There were concerts and laughter and beauty at the White House.
I don’t think I’ll ever get over the shock and disgust I feel that we went from hero to zero.
@efgoldman: Mueller’s back from vacation. Next week’s gonna be lit.
@MomSense: My son bought me Pete Souza’s book for xmas and that helps. I just flip though it every once and awhile, and remember when.

One of the weirdest things about Donald Tяump’s loser fans us that for the first six months he was in office, they kept telling us that after eight years of the world laughing at us, now they’d respect us, God damn it! And once it became too clear to avoid admitting that the world is laughing at Donald Tяump, now all of a sudden, they tell us that what the rest of the world thinks doesn’t matter any longer.
Weather permitting, protesters should show up in tan suits.
Damn. An alt-right neighborhood. My sympathies.
@Brachiator: And that made it a wrap.
What is the news about Butina and Stone? I hadn’t heard anything new today, so…?
They’re so bad at this:
Her platform centers around? What does that even mean? She has a platform… of visiting places? That’s a schedule – it’s not a “platform”
And “open to”. Not “I would love to” or “I would be honored to” or anything else a normally polite person might say, but she’s “open to”? Does she think we’re going to beg her to come?
It’s not even that they’re bad at being President and First Lady. They’re bad at being normal people.
LeBron James is better at the role model/public face aspects of being the US President than the President.
The Trumps can’t even graciously pull off a school opening, something every county commissioner can do in his or her sleep. They’re on like Hour Twelve of fucking up what should have been a simple “job well done, Mr. James!”
@Brachiator: lol I am pretty excited to get back to a normal routine.
David ??Merry Christmas?? Koch
Drumpf will be buried in the Kremlin wall, right next to Putin, Snowden and Yuri Andropov
@Brachiator: Good one.
@Kay: They are all arrogant & ignorant little shits. Nothing more, nothing less.
Mike in NC
@Kay: So grateful to hear that the trophy wife would soil her heels by visiting that Akron school. We are SO not worthy of her empathy and intellect.
From totally class to totally crass. How quickly it all turned totally ugly.
@Mike in NC: Remember, this is the woman giving away Dr. Seuss books to schools. Which, trust me, ALREADY OWN THEM, because about half of the families try to donate them when their kids reach 10.*
(I’m keeping ours, regardless of what HerrDoktor wants)
* I work in WarriorGirl’s school library because I learned to catalog books when it involved amber CRTs and TELEX. I know everything there is to know about what parents try to donate to school libraries…
@Mike in NC:
Well, doesn’t she have one of them “Einstein visas”?
What bothers me about the Palmer Report list is that it’s almost enough for a typical Infrastructure Week, but it’s all in half a day. What are they going to do for the remaining 6.5 days? I shudder at the prospect.
@David ??Merry Christmas?? Koch:
There’s your wall, Donny. Enjoy it.
@David ??Merry Christmas?? Koch:
Not nearly enough gold leaf for his tastes. He’s holding out for St. Basil’s Cathedral. Or for a new, huge, mausoleum right next to Lenin’s Tomb.
fynyt tool tweets that hope hicks is traveling with the traitorous turd in AF1 for his hate rally with OH hicks. Isn’t she under federal investigation? Witness tampering in plain sight?
What bothers me about the Palmer Report is it’s actual fake news—the blogkeeper just pulls wish-fulfillment stories out of his ass.
My personal favorite is this post from April claiming Rudy Ghouliani is a cooperating witness against Trump.
We shouldn’t be sharing his tweets or anything related to his site.
Which ones are fake? The MJ-siding-with-LeBron and Butina-Trump-campaign-connection stories are real, the misspelling of “its” would surprise no one. I have no idea about Stone hearing he’ll be indicted, nor the ObamaDay thing.
So what am I missing?
and to help celebrate Obama Day, i put Dijon mustard on my hot dog. (but
no fucking ketchup!)
I was in a bookstore today and they had a big display of Hope never dies — an Obama-Biden mystery. Obama and Biden team up to solve the mysterious death of an Amtrak conductor. Sounds like a hoot.
Also, The Obama inheritance — fifteen stories of conspiracy noir. A collection of stories by great writers riffing on the time we had a President worthy of the office.
@Kay: you expect people who steal and cage babies to even have an inkling of what normal people do?
