With the firing the Director of Cybersecurity, I think Trump's petulance has crossed over into full-blown insanity.

Even taking for granted "Trump's a malignant narcissist" and "narcissists don't handle losing well," I am astonished by how badly Trump has been behaving -- and how utterly fucking craven the Republican politicos have been about him. To the point of crazy shit like "senators are urging Georgia's [Republican] Secretary of State to resign because he said the state election results are legit rather than fraudulent."

It is bizarre how their latest legal arguments seem to boil down to "fuck it, just declare us the winners, OK?"

As many have said before, what worries me isn't even Trump himself, but what notes a more competent would-be dictator is picking up from this. The only thing that saved America from Trump is Trump's own incompetence and lack of interest in the actual day-to-day job of the presidency. The next guy the GOP chooses to stiggit to the libs might actually succeed.

Well if anyone knows about being a national embarrassment, it's Christie.

Trump has pardoned Michael Flynn

1) How many of his cronies will he pardon by noon January 20, 2021?
2) Who will he pardon next?
3) Will he pardon Jr.? And Jared? And Ivanka?
4) Will he attempt to pardon himself?

Better be careful. At some point it stops being a list of pardons and becomes "the people who the select subcommittee will be calling as part of their investigation."

I doubt Trump is capable of that kind of consequential insight.

Yes, but the top-notch legal minds he's...oh, wait.

So, how long before Trump fires Barr?

William Barr says there is no evidence of widespread fraud in presidential election
(CNN)The Justice Department hasn't found evidence to support allegations of widespread fraud that could have changed the result of last month's presidential election, Attorney General William Barr said in an interview with the Associated Press published Tuesday.

The comments from Barr, who has been steadfast in his support of President Donald Trump during his tenure, represent the latest official rebuke from Republicans of the President's claims of widespread fraud in his loss to Joe Biden.
"To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election," Barr said.

I'm worried there may be more Kyle Rittenhouses out there. There have already been death threats against a Georgia election worker. Flynn has suggested a military auto-coup. Joe diGenova has stated Christopher Krebs should be shot.

If the Senate had any character and/or balls, they'd be having the time-to-resign-or-we-go-along-with-impeachment talk with Trump right now. Or 3+ weeks ago.

It's going to be a long time until January 20th.

It would be hilarity of the highest order if Parler had to shut down because of a Sec 230 repeal.

Congress is fond of giving names to legislation, so I suggest it calls repeal of Sec 230 the "2020 Defamation Lawyers Full Employment Act."

It would be hilarious if the guy who built his administration on divisiveness managed to unite Congress on telling him to STFU.

I didn't think his narcissism could surprise me anymore, but I was wrong: he actually thinks he could get away with defunding the fucking military because twitter hurt his feelings?
