Here's a bizarre case of Trump Derangement Syndrome: NY Governor Cuomo vetoed a bill, passed with near-unanimous bipartisan support, that would have expanded the numbers of Federal judges who are permitted to officiate at weddings, because Trump nominated some of them.
"I cannot in good conscience support legislation that would authorize such actions by federal judges who are appointed by this federal administration," Cuomo's veto message stated.

"President Trump does not embody who we are as New Yorkers," the Democratic governor added Friday. "The cornerstones that built our great state are diversity, tolerance and inclusion. Based on these reasons, I must veto this bill."
Even the bill's (Democratic) sponsor is kind of baffled by this logic, pointing out that since any New Yorker can get ordained and officiate at weddings for $25, it's not like there was some huge purity test or barrier to entry before this.

That's pretty fucking petty for a State Governor. But I ain't going to remember it next week.

The CBC edited the Trump cameo out of Home Alone 2
"As is often the case with feature films adapted for television, Home Alone 2 was edited for time," the CBC shared with ComicBook.com. "The scene with Donald Trump was one of several that were cut from the movie as none of them were integral to the plot. These edits were done in 2014 when we first acquired the film and before Mr. Trump was elected President."

Sean Hannity will be with us until the last MAGA hat walks out of the GOP convention.

Could be. I know Hannity was a big crowdstrike ukraine server guy. There are a list of like 3 "journalists" who appear to explain to everyone on Hannity how all the conspiracies really work.

No. I don't watch any Fox. I'm aware due to several long running arguments about how the right o sphere comes to believe these things.

Internet confession: I acknowledge that Donald Trump is a garbage monster whose policies harm people and whose actions are accelerating the public sector's slide into the sludge, but I cannot get enough stories about what a brittle insecure self-hating manbaby he is.

In yet another stunning victory in Trump's good, easily won trade war, the USDA is shelling out $28 billion in ag subsidies and aid for 2019-2020.
Some of the aid came from long-familiar programs. Government-subsidized crop insurance covered some of the losses from flooding. Other payments were unprecedented. The U.S. Department of Agriculture simply sent him a check to compensate him for the low prices resulting from the trade war.

" 'Trump money' is what we call it," Henry said. "It helped a lot. And it's my understanding, they're going to do it again."
For one thing, it's an enormous amount of money, more than the final cost of bailing out the auto industry during the financial crisis of 2008. The auto industry bailout was fiercely debated in Congress. Yet the USDA created this new program out of thin air; it decided that an old law authorizing a USDA program called the Commodity Credit Corp. already gave it the authority to spend this money.
Also, the payments are quite generous. According to studies by several independent economists, the USDA is paying farmers roughly twice as much as the actual harm that they suffered from the trade war. And the payments are based on production; the bigger the farm, the bigger the payments. Thousands of farmers got more than $100,000 each. According to an NPR analysis of USDA records of payments made through July 2019, 100,000 individuals collected just over 70% of the money.
"They've already given out $19 billion to farmers, but they're cutting $5 billion from people in need," says Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, who sits on the House Agriculture Committee. "I don't even know how to describe it except to say that it is cruel, it is unfair, and it is clearly designed to support the president's base, as he sees it, as opposed to those whom he sees as being undeserving."
So on one hand we have a retarded trade war that helps no one and actively harms both farmers and the consumers who buy their crops, and on the other hand we have a bloated payout that circumvents the all but pointless budgetary process to shield Trump's voters from the consequences of his actions. Who could be behind all this?

Why is everyone losing their underpants over Trump mispronouncing "tolerated"? "HE'S AN ADDERALL ADDICT OMGGGG" No, he was talking and the word came out wrong. This has happened to literally every person who has ever talked out loud. Have you never seen that tweet about "ah, my fart cone"?

Pretty sure the Adderall addiction thing is more related to how he snorts and huffs more than Nose Candy Nancy. And she really fucking loves nose candy. Hence the name.
