Today's Big Stuff

7.29.20

It's Wednesday. There are 97 days until the presidential election. Trump gives a big wet kiss to Putin but doesn't bring up bounties on our troops, the president stands by the demon sex lady and Trump says he's not leaving Portland and he might "clean it out."

Note: Well what the hell are we supposed to do now? Seriously. How in the world are we supposed to come up with something funnier or more disturbing than the president of the United States digging in on his defense of the demon sex lady? Trump's not just killing America. He's killing comedy! At this point you just know we're days away from Trump endorsing leeches and blood-letting. And last week, our nation's journalists were telling us about his new tone. Can we vote those dumbasses out too? Like is there a way to put Dana Bash and Van Jones on the ballot and be like sorry you were wrong about a ton of shit in your endless quest to kiss presidential ass, so we voted and you both work at a car wash now try not to fuck it up. Oh well, we are determined to laugh in the face of all this stupid tragedy, so give us a day and we'll find a way around this whole alien DNA thing. We hope. 

Note two: We need to talk for a second about how self-defeating our own party can be. Whether it's refusing to put legal weed in the platform or Democratic senators helping to push through anti-choice judges or Steny Hoyer going on tv and negotiating with himself instead of talking about Republicans putting $8 billion for military hardware in the COVID bill, we have a habit of shooting ourselves in the foot. Hell, did y'all see Nadler yesterday? Oof. So after we beat this orange piece of shit and everyone who propped him up, we need to start focusing on electing more smarter, tougher Democrats. Trumpism isn't going away. We need people who can -- and will -- fight it. CNN, Huff Post, Huff Post II

Note three: We're just gonna skip Barr in the news section. Yeah, some of our people did well, but not enough of them. And it doesn't matter anyway because it was all just theater. Our party decided to give Barr a pass, and they're sticking with it. We don't know that impeaching him is necessarily wise right now, but it sure is disappointing how much we've let him get away with. And it sure as hell isn't what we were fighting for back in 2018. 

Note four: Just look at this headline. Are we giving away our leverage out of habit?! More: Washington Post

Note five: Yesterday was actually kind of a big day. It got lost in all the demon sperm and hydroxy pushing, but Trump did something he has never done before. He actually said something true. The statement "nobody likes me" was rated accurate. Congrats to the dumb shit for finally getting one right. More: New York Times

Note six: Not at all surprising, anti-mask and anti-brain Congressman Louis Gohmert, quite possibly the dumbest human being in history, has tested positive for COVID. He has been all over the House not wearing a mask. We'd sure like to see leadership make an example out of this asshole. More: Politico

Note seven: How could Lindsey Graham get any worse? Well, there's always a way… More: CNN

Note eight: We wish we cared more about the hearings with Bezos and Zuckerberg today, but we know what's going to happen. Our older members are going to ask how to mute their phones when they're in public, and our young members will make these guys squirm. And then everyone will go back to whatever they were doing before like nothing happened. Exciting time to be an American, right? More: Politico

Note nine: Congrats to Watchmen on all the Emmy nods. If you haven't seen it, you should. Regina King is freaking amazing. 

Note 10: You can really tell it's Hump Day because there are so many people we want to tell to go hump themselves. We hope y'all have a magical day. Stay safe, stay cool, stay the hell away from Republicans. The filthy buggers (h/t Austin Powers). 

Russian Fire Sale

So we have a president who works for the Russian president. It's really fucked up and horrible, and it's really true. If you haven't yet seen the Axios interview with Trump where he defends Putin and admits he never confronted him for putting bounties on our troops, you need to watch it. It is really quite stunning. And then this motherfucker follows it up by announcing today that he is pulling all of our troops out of Germany. And Esper had the goddamn nerve to say it will serve as a deterrent to Russia. Bullshit. The truth is Trump is working for Putin and afraid and jealous of Merkel, so he's doing some spiteful shit regardless of what it means for NATO or our national security. When Republican senators don't do shit about this, you can safely assume they're working for Russia too. But really, you should already assume that. More: Axios, Axios II, CNN

Let's just get this out of the way

We've mentioned it a few times already, but our idiot president is now taking health advice from an idiot doctor who thinks people get sick from alien DNA and demon sperm. He defended her yesterday and then ran when asked about her craziness. And then he defended her again today! There are 150,000 dead Americans, so none of this shit is funny. It's all just horrible and sad. And why would they do it? Well because these quacks are pushing hydroxy, and the federal government bought a shitload of it before they knew if it would work. "I'm sitting on millions of doses of it," Peter Navarro told CNN this morning. Here are just a couple of questions. Why is Navarro in charge of this? Why is Navarro still on tv every damn day? Why do reporters kiss this nutjob's ass? More: Washington Post

Portland strong

Our neighbors in the Northwest continue to be under siege from Trump's thugs. After Bill Barr's cold heart made clear yesterday he is happy to send his stormtroopers into any American city and he doesn't give a shit what they do there, Trump continued with his threats, telling reporters this morning he won't leave "until they secure their city… if they don't secure their city soon, we have no choice, we're gonna have to go in and clean it out." SO WHAT THE FUCK DOES THAT MEAN?! Well, nothing good. Hang in there, Portland. We love you, we're proud of you and we're in awe of you. It takes guts to stand up for what's right like this, and Portland seems to have stocked up at the guts store. More: CNN, Axios
