South Carolina's Republican Party voted Saturday to officially cancel the state's Republican primary in 2020.

"With no legitimate primary challenger and President Trump's record of results, the decision was made to save South Carolina taxpayers over $1.2 million and forgo an unnecessary primary,” Drew McKissick, SCGOP chairman, said in a statement. "President Trump and his administration have delivered for South Carolinians, and we look forward to ensuring that Republican candidates up and down the ballot are elected in 2020."

At least three other states - Arizona, Kansas, and South Carolina - are considering plans to cancel their 2020 GOP presidential primaries and caucuses, prompting President Donald Trump's long-shot primary opponents to rail against the stunning, but not unprecedented move that would virtually cripple their chances. ....

Meanwhile, Air Force flight crews are making a lot of stops at Trump's resort in Scotland.

I'll just save everyone the trouble and say that this is surely not a violation of any rules. But it is still sketchy as hell.

This is exactly the sort of thing I figured would define the Trump years back when he was elected. Sketchy as hell, and too piddly to give a shit about.

Absolutely. Nothing to give a shit about. Entropy, ennui, who the fuck cares?

And when the next president does the same only more, well, there's precedent. Entropy, ennui, who the fuck cares?

I'm kind of amazed his cultists are even making excuses for that ridiculous Sharpie map thing. Natural disasters are not a partisan issue -- or at least they weren't until now.

It’d be nice if someone looked at the logical conclusion from the Turnberry thing and the shifting of funds for the wall. Even the DoD thinks they have way too much money that they can burn on obviously useless shit.

You seriously don't know what I'm referring to? Google "Trump," Sharpie" and "Alabama" or "Dorian" to find out, and also rid yourself of any troubling vestiges of "faith in humanity" which might be weighing you down.

Well then, Pham, make sure you also don't google "Coast Guard Rear Admiral Peter Brown" either. Or "National Weather Service in Birmingham," or "storm trajectory maps" specifically in regard to Hurricane Dorian.

Holy shit! I just saw this on Twitter, too:
The Washington Post has obtained emails from a top NOAA official repeatedly admonishing the agency’s scientists and staff not to correct the inaccurate hurricane forecast information coming from President Trump.

oh! that! yeah. I heard about it. A friend does IT with the NOAA. I didn't realize it was that big a deal. Been kind of busy lately. I'm a news junkie but went up in the mountains a few days, went right back into the OR, and then went to my pharm gig to help out.

If this is the most credible primary challenger, I totally get why all these states are canceling their Republican primaries.

We had a spy in Russia so close to Putin that he could photograph presidential documents, and had to pull him out because the CIA couldn't trust Trump not to mention this to Putin.

I am looking forward to seeing how the "Obama was just as bad and Hillary would've been worse!" brigades spin this one.

Regarding his disagreements with Trump, Bolton said "If you don't know me by now..."

There's also that tweet from Pence's account that is obviously written by Trump. We know Pence is a sycophant, but that's a new level.

Pence has probably been having screaming fits in private that Trump's stayed in office this long.

It's hard to scream with Trump's stump in his mouth.
