  1. President Trump is a fucking moron…
    …according to the Secretary of State.

    I’ve verbally used this twice so far, with a long pause where the ellipses are. It’s like a Get Out Of Jail Free card. It can be said with impunity to the greatest of Trump fans.

    “Don’t glower at me! I’m quoting Donald Trump’s Secretary of State.”

    Which Of These Las Vegas Shooting Conspiracy Theories Is Most Stupidest? Potato

    You’ll be glad to know that the Loon-o-Sphere has been cranking out conspiracy theories about the Las Vegas mass shooting as fast as cranks can think of them, and while Alex Jones has certainly showcased a few, he’s really just the tip of the moronberg when it comes to people who have non-monogamous relationships with reality. Media Matters has helpfully catalogued some of the wackier ones out there and attempted to trace how some have migrated from the crazier corners of paranoialand to semi-respectable rightwing media…

  3. I really feel this way now. I cannot stand Trump and what he’s done to this country. And he’s heading right toward a war and it may be nuclear. I didn’t vote for either but the worst person won….

  4. If the Democrats Don’t Learn This Lesson, They Deserve to Lose Forever
    Progressive candidates can win anywhere. Contest every race.
    By Charlie Pierce

    If the Democratic Party weren’t so terminally bumfuzzled, and if many of its activists could get over the wounds their delicate fee-fees suffered during the 2016 presidential primaries, the party could see a great advantage in coordinating efforts between the formal party apparatus and what could be described as the progressive shock troops that carried Woodfin to victory in Birmingham.

    Bob Corker Is Responsible for Trumpism, Too
    Don’t let his recent change of heart compensate for a string of terrible decisions.

    BY CHARLES P. PIERCE
    OCT 9, 2017

    The big news on Monday was that Scott Pruitt, the extraction industry sublet and current second-place grifter in the Misuse Of Government Airplanes sweepstakes, took a jaunt down to Hazard, Kentucky to announce that “the war on coal” was over and that he would be rolling back the Obama Administration’s Clean Power Plant. This is because Pruitt is as complete a tool as one can find at Home Depot and because he no more belongs as head of the EPA than an elephant does performing at the Bolshoi.

    Bob Corker thought that Scott Pruitt was just the man for the job.

    Bob Corker also voted in favor of making a discreet racist the Attorney General, for putting a grifter at the head of Health and Human Services, and for putting unqualified buffoons at the head of the Departments of Education and Housing And Urban Development. Bob Corker was altogether fine with stiffing Merrick Garland for a year in order to hijack a Supreme Court seat for Neil Gorsuch who, apparently, even John Roberts can’t stand. It was cool with Bob Corker, several times, if millions of Americans lost their healthcare and if even the surviving restrictions on Wall Street brigandage and campaign finance went up in smoke. Bob Corker voted with the administration 88 percent of the time. And as Alec MacGillis pointed out on the electric Twitter machine, Bob Corker stepped in and monkeywrenched a union drive at an automobile plant in Tennessee.

    In short, fckabuncha Bob Corker.

    Habitues of the shebeen better get used to this right now because I have a feeling we’re going to be seeing a lot of this. Desperate conservative Republicans trying to get out from under this president* by pretending they weren’t complicit in the entire decades-long accommodation with unreason and fanaticism that made a president* like him not only possible, but inevitable. We’re going to see a lot of people claiming immunity from the prion disease with bits of the monkeybrains still visible on their chins. We will not be buying this here in this establishment, nor will we be buying the argument that “reasonable conservatives” will save us from the catastrophe in which they all are wholly complicit, and that certainly includes Bob Corker, who thought Scott Pruitt was aces for the EPA job, and who thought Merrick Garland unfit for the Supreme Court because a Democratic president had nominated him, and who is now crawling from the wreckage he helped create…

    Charlie Pierce has been banging this drum for a very long time:

    Desperate conservative Republicans trying to get out from under this president* by pretending they weren’t complicit in the entire decades-long accommodation with unreason and fanaticism that made a president* like him not only possible, but inevitable.

    Trump is not the result of “decades-long accomadation with unreason and fanaticism.” Trump is merely one result. The list is very long and includes vote suppression, money-as-free-speech, religiosity over-weighing women’s rights, the NRA and gun insanity, Wall Street deregulation…

    A Plea for a President
    It is time for Barack Obama to join the Trump Resistance full-time.

    Now that we have a brief break in the action, and the Secretary of State has had his lunch with the president* whom the Secretary of State declines to deny once having called a “fucking moron,” let us review Tuesday’s other White House highlights, shall we?…
