Michael Tracey will always be known as the large young dude who whined about Rep. Maxine Waters shoving him, just brutally, behold the violence inherent in the system. So he’s not afraid to somersault out at the head of the Horseshoe Politics clown parade…

I love how he links to this like he’s owning Krugman, but Krugman’s next tweet says the insurrectionists stayed away bc they’re cowards & they knew w Trump gone they can no longer act w impunity. It didn’t happen not bc it wasn’t a serious threat, but bc it was treated as one https://t.co/IvaMVFwlkO

The Alt-Right / Alt-Left Co-Prosperity Sphere reboots! Next step: At least Trump wasn’t a warmonger, unlike the filthy Democrats, on this “we” can all agree…
He bombed Syria twice and had to be stopped from going to war with Iran, but technically, yes, he didn't start any *foreign* wars, just the one that killed people on Capitol Hill and almost ended in the murder of his own Vice President. https://t.co/iRXfFqO86E

Sweet Jesus spanking Nancy Reagan’s ass while Casper Weinberger changes Ronnie’s pants, Tom Nichols is here.
I don’t remember Jimmy Carter starting any wars.
ETA: Jimmy Carter also has a Nobel Peace Prize, something Trump will never have.
There are some seriously stupid people on Twitter.
Also too: What war did Jimmy Carter start? What war did. Ford start?
@Jerzy Russian: I don’t remember Clinton -starting- any wars. I -do- remember him finishing one (fuckin’ Milosevic, that blood-soaked monster).
@Chetan Murthy: Junior’s not the sharpest tool in the drawer.
@Jerzy Russian: I guess for Junior, Modern American history starts with Saint Ronnie.
ETA: I just looked up Junior on Wikipedia, he was fucking born during the Carter administration. Moron.
Jim, Foolish Literalist
What war did Obama start?
@Jim, Foolish Literalist
Did you already forget the Bowling Green Massacre?
@NotMax: Oh The Humanity…
They’re being recognized more and more.
I’m guessing they are considering the Libyan intervention a war that he started (well, really the French did) (Benghazi!)
@Jim, Foolish Literalist: Libya, and by that same standard, Trump started a war in Syria.
@Jim, Foolish Literalist: The War on Religion because he is a well-known Satanist. He covers it up by going to church, quoting Scripture, and giving eulogies that make you think he’s actually a Reverend. So sneaky!!!
@JustRuss: Also Twitter magnifies the Stupid Rays that these people emit. Twitter at its very core is built on a stupid idea, and it did not get any smarter over time.
@Alison Rose: Oh right. The War on Christmas.
None of us watch enough Fox or we would have gotten that one right away.
The Milky Ring, one of the coolest Astronomy Pictures of the Day. It was shot by a Chinese photographer in China and New Zealand.
cool, and rather trippy,….
@Jay: The best “how it started/how it’s going” ever
@Mary G: What the heck is this? Funny though.
Nice one. I kind of like that guy.
I mean I wore a condom and she was on birth control, and she didn’t get pregnant or any stds. Total waste of time and effort.
Oh my. So uncivil. But often so is truth.
The Libya revisionism floors me. It is presented as if the United States unilaterally invaded a stable country and we are still imbedded in an Iraq-like quagmire. In real life Obama agreed to honor NATO obligations when they begged us to start the bombing campaign when the Arab League begged them to intervene in the civil war. Obama agreed only because doing so would prevent a credible threat to massacre a city of 300,000, and we got out as fast as NATO (led by France) could take over, exactly because we didn’t want to be involved. All of that is just… forgotten whenever the topic is discussed. It drives me nuts.
@Jerzy Russian: I read a fact check of this idiotic claim, in the Post, I think. It starts with equating starting American involvement in a war with “starting a war,” which of course it isn’t, but it’s still not true even if you accept that.
David ??Merry Christmas?? Koch
@Mary G: ?
there was no “credible threat”,
outside and domestic actors just copied the “Dubya Dubya Me Too” playbook to “stampede” the US into taking the lead, against a regime that has been a “storybook villain” since the Cold War.
the LNA is now propped up by Putin, Wagner, Egypt and the UAE, while Turkey backs the GNA, and the EU “blockaide”, blocks nothing.
Has this Tracey EVER been any good? He’s been straight-up trolling ever since I’ve been aware of him.
@Jay: Speaks to my lazy layman’s opinion of NATO: ostensibly a Cold War pact of anti-Soviet solidarity, but hopelessly entangled in Europe’s disgraceful colonial history. Plus the old saw, “NATO = “Needs America to Operate”
ETA: this admittedly poorly informed opinion in no way endorses the previous admin’s extortionist attitude towards our European allies.
It’s the PTSD from being beat up by Aunt Maxine.
David ??Merry Christmas?? Koch
speaking of horseshoe politics clown parade
Taibbi supported…. wait for it…. the cops during the summer police riots.
I never liked Taibbi. Ever. That said, he was on the far left, but his love for all things Russia, including Putin, radicalized him over Russiagate to where he now attacks Bernie and supports white identity politics.
@frosty: Comedian imitating the new press secretary and making fun of reporters who act like children.
@?BillinGlendaleCA: Cool pic. Thanx.
I disliked these people before disliking these people was cool.
It’s a good imitation.
@Baud: In my defense, I didn’t know these people existed.
We were not at war with Iran before Trump. Or does killing Sulemani not count as an act of war anymore.
ETA: That said, Trump did focus more on killing Americans.
Ignorance is bliss.
@Baud: And far better at it than Al Qaeda ever dreamed of.
@David ??Merry Christmas?? Koch: “he [Taibbi] now suppports white identity politics”. Which is weird, because he isn’t all that white. Sort of like Michelle Malkin.
Imagine referring to your own father by his first and last name.
@?BillinGlendaleCA: I’m so old I remember Carter getting ripped for NOT starting a war.
@John Revolta: Marcy Wheeler holds a special dagger in her heart against the trifecta of Tracey, Aaron Mate, and Glenn Greenwald. And she shitcans them pretty regularly on her twitter feed…though I haven’t seen anything against him in the past couple of days. But she’s been busy reading even more court documents.
@?BillinGlendaleCA: So, history began after Don Jr. was born and became aware?
BTW Is it too much to ask for the Trumps to learn how to speak and write English?
There go two miscreants
Assumes facts not in evidence.
J R in WV
All available evidence tells us, Yes, yes, it is too much to ask for the Trumps to learn how to speak and write English !!
I saw the pro-Trump position on this mocked (on Twitter?) by someone as “Donald Trump was excellent because he kept the US involved in the exact right number of wars.”
@Alison Rose: We need visuals, please! That is awesome sauce!
