They are the people who rule DC. Not that they take that responsibility seriously, but it does behoove them to at least pretend to care about local news.

The best evidence that the post-Baghdadi raid picture is staged is all the network cables laying out unattached to machines. Like it it was actually the raid watching party, those cables would be connected to machines.

According to Fox News, they were actually saying "Boo-Urns".

He's out here this morning talking about how Chicago is more dangerous than Afghanistan and I just want to know if I can join a protest that is both anti-Trump and anti-CTU.

Hopefully he's right about that and a drone operator will mistake his rally for a wedding.

Slate published an amusing take from "A Highly Paid Pundit":

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/201 ... ndits.html
I fail to see how a political candidate encouraging a threatening chant toward his opponent—one that he would later attempt to follow through on when he took power—might be different than a group of citizens in a nonpolitical setting expressing displeasure with an elected official who, in our system of government, works for them. Nor have I considered the fact that impeachment, as a constitutional power granted to the House of Representatives, is a matter in which the judgment of the general public is relevant. ... And I clearly don’t understand that the expectation that journalists be fair does not always mean that they have to find liberals and conservatives equally to blame for any given problem. Both sides have gravely disappointed me, and I fear for our republic.

I have no doubt that your average K-12 teacher is more deadly than the typical Taliban soldier you're likely to bump into.

Elsewhere, I muted some idiot someone else retweeted who was all, "We were told that a bunch of people all wearing similar hats chanting 'Lock her up!' was a terrible thing for our democracy..."

When the cleverest thing you can think of is to try to make a completely context-free tu quoque, you might as well huddle under your blanket with your phone and record a tearful video about how people should leave Donald alone!

To be fair, if Trump vowed to build a wall on the border between Colorado and California, he'd win the state in a landslide.
Which state, Colorado or California?
Both?
The only state that wants to keep Coloradans out is Wyoming.

Ah, OK.

I was halfway expecting them to be a couple with the surname Black. That at least would vaguely justify their wearing that shirt as a bit of trolling and not just being complete morons.
