Good Morning!

Still waking up, after a long week away, it is good to be home.

I have to wonder what insanity will happen this week, especially after this article from Politico was published this morning.

Just days earlier, K.T. McFarland, the deputy national security adviser, had given Trump a printout of two Time magazine covers. One, supposedly from the 1970s, warned of a coming ice age; the other, from 2008, about surviving global warming, according to four White House officials familiar with the matter.


Trump quickly got lathered up about the media’s hypocrisy. But there was a problem. The 1970s cover was fake, part of an Internet hoax that’s circulated for years. Staff chased down the truth and intervened before Trump tweeted or talked publicly about it.

The episode illustrates the impossible mission of managing a White House led by an impetuous president who has resisted structure and strictures his entire adult life.


The Deputy National Security advisor.

I have no more words for this.

Welcome back, Raine and BobR!!

I am amazed at what has happened in the last week.

As for myself, still working on moving forward.

I am sure that Thom Hartmann will say something similar.

I expected everything to get bad with Trump. What astonishes me is how rapidly everything has happened.

So, right now, we have an ignorant man in the White House who only surrounds himself with yes men and sycophants. He may be functionally illiterate, suffering from Alzheimer's or some other mental illness, and you have a quarter to one third of the American people and most of the GOP who seem to have no problem with it.

This shit behavior is unacceptable.
