America, fuck yes


Today is the day #QAnon followers believe top Democrats will be arrested in mass and that the funeral of Bush is actually just to trap them and my god I can't wait for the inevitable mental gymnastics explaining why it never happened. But for now enjoy the hype.

Unfortunately they will just make up a new conspiracy to explain why the other one didn't happen.

I keep hearing the counter-argument that QAnon is just a "casual troll operation".

The problem is that we're in the Century of Poe's Law: how could you tell?

The new normal: The President of the United States yet again tweeting nicer things about Kim Jong Un than he tweets about his own Justice Department.

Oh come the fuck on. You expect me to believe the butterfly sanctuary owner, whose sanctuary is being destroyed by the wall is a Trump voter? This has to be parody.
People have asked me, “Didn’t you listen to Trump when he said that he would build a wall?” I didn’t take the idea seriously during the campaign. I knew he couldn’t get Mexico to pay it — that’d be like asking Hurricane Harvey to foot the bill for rebuilding Houston — and thought it was just talk: another candidate making big promises he couldn’t keep. I never thought it would actually happen.

They’ve been claiming Trump voter status since Reason did a video about them last year sometime. Or possibly a month ago. Time has become a far more fickle illusion this term.

Like I say, WaPo is late to the party on this one. Reason has had this story for at least a year. Then again, Reason as Clickhole....

Trump is proud to shut the government down for the wall in the same way he is proud of his children.

Yeah. The "I didn't think they meant us" thing is pretty universal. Like the pro-Obamacare blues who found their premium rates rising fast.

Mattis was on board with Theranos longer than he was on board with the Trump administration. That is one hell of a way to top off your career.

I now have found the government shutdown compromise that I want to see. The Ds give Trump $5B in wall money to lock in a legislative repeal of the Mexico City policy. Trump will sign that I’m a heartbeat because he doesn’t give two shits about abortion. But I can’t wait to see the contortions evangelicals will go through to justify trading abortion money in foreign aid for wall money. They’ll find a way, but it will be fab.

Nah. After putting up with Pence he wants someone he can party with. Maria Butina, maybe. Or Ivanka.

No offense to Eric, but nothing would do more for the restoration of American greatness than the installation of Vice President Darkly.
