So today, Nukie - or "Assclown," as I like to call him - decreed we're going to spend our own money to build a wall between us and Mexico. It matters not that we've been experiencing net loss immigration for years, nor that a wall isn't going to be enough to keep out dedicated invaders, and that it's going to cost a king's ransom and tear up more land that the fence from years ago didn't reach.

Anyone else who had to admit as bad a loss to another country as he's experienced (a former Mexican president literally said the country is not going to pay for that fucking wall) would be suffering for it ... well, anyone else who happened to be brown, or female, or possibly just Democrat. The Republicans have NEVER had to abide by the same rules they impose on everyone else. The last one in that office just started up two wars easy as you please; this one will rob low-income women and other poor people of health care to build a wall that will no doubt enrich his coffers and those of a few friends.

This one will rob the environment of funding to finance whatever government compliance is needed to construct two unwanted and dangerous tar sand pipelines that only benefit a foreign country and provide the U.S. absolutely NOTHING in return - no product, no profit, no strategic advantage.

This one will choke off the flow of publicly-funded information and research so he can vet the data himself ahead of time and carefully control the release of alternate facts to make himself look better ... mainly because he can't get over the fact he will never be as widely beloved as his predecessor, or even as much as that unpopular harridan who used to send emails through her work address about her daughter's wedding plans.

I mean, shit, son. His wife doesn't seem to even like him very much, and two of his children look like they'd rather be anywhere else when in his orbit.

Ah, Nukie. Such naked insecurity on full public display could possibly be either fascinating or sympathy-inducing on a regular guy. You, though; without your family money and now your office, you're just a suburban mom's easily-unlocked gun cabinet away from being a school shooter.

Despite the political insanity, every day proves beyond a doubt that the man is clinically insane.

My sister this morning linked me to a story about the ABC News (I think ABC?) interview Trump gave this week wherein he seemed most concerned with how popular he is (or isn't), to the point of obsession. But then those of us with brains have known all along he's a circus entertainer yearning to be the ringmaster ... except he doesn't even know as much as a literal circus ringmaster does.

I read the interview in the entirety. At first I thought it was a joke interview. Seriously, I did. Then I realized it was REAL. OMG!
