No, I’m not referring to
birds falling out of the sky, nor to the hellish coloration of California last week.
I’m thinking of Trump’s
amazing descent into full-throated fascism and even eugenics. If you follow just one link in this post, follow that one. There is no low so low we cannot go lower.
I’m thinking of
this ad — which is apparently not a parody other than perhaps a self-parody — for Sen. Kelly Loeffler, in which her spokesperson brags that Loeffler is “more conservative than Attila the Hun”; the ad then cuts to Loeffler’s idea of Attila ordering a minion to “attack big government” — and concludes with his order to “eliminate the liberal scribes”.
In this context,
Sen. Lindsey Graham’s spineless about-face on Supreme Court nominations seems almost banal.
Update: and now I can’t tell if
this fake focus group introduced by Triumph the Insult Comic Dog is a real fake, or a fake fake where everyone is an actor. I really hope they are actors.
As a public service, McSweeney’s maintains a continually updated website
Lest We Forget the Horrors: A Catalog of Trump’s Worst Cruelties, Collusions, Corruptions, and Crimes.
That we need a (lengthy) list to keep track of it all is bad. What’s worse is that we also need an “Atrocity Key” to organize them:
America’s Finest News Source™ brings you
The Life Cycle of a Trump Lie.
You have to wonder what the Trump people were thinking — if anything — when they took on the Post Office. Are Mom and Apple Pie next? (Could be, they already
threw grandparents under the bus.)
I’m guessing they figured no one could stop them, and then stopped thinking about the problem.
Anyway, looks like they were wrong about that.
This ought to hurt:
