Scatologists are said to be helping the journal further refine Donald’s daily eliminations by texture, odor and resistance to disinfectant.
He worked for the University of Virginia and the Koch brothers inventing a system of economics to restore America to slave ownership.
Wikipedia cites his approach to economic analysis thusly: “His work in public choice theory is often interpreted as the quintessential instance of economics imperialism”

The interesting times we live in make fine entertainment and fine conditions for the quiet demolition of every single assumed right of every single unassuming screen-obsessed, conflict-averse citizen immune to the death-throe shudders of democracy.
When we say “mob rule,” is it rioting in the streets or wanton anarchist chaos?— no, it’s a day at the White House where the occupant obsesses about squealers and rats and getting the Feds off his back.

The last slim hopes before we’re subjects of an eastern bloc autocracy are fading. The mob’s assumed immunity to prosecution is riveting entertainment. Read on, here.
Denise Rohan, the Commander of the American Legion called him out on this inconceivable breach of protocol— and he reversed course and complied.
Cohen likes a comedic pain threshold few can tolerate— a sort of Andy Kaufman zone.
It’s hard laughing at his genius for promoting an absurdity past all human tolerance of insane behavior when the behavior he elicits just isolates and shoves in your face individual instances of daily Trump-era insanities.

“Who is America?” his series asks, and America answers back “could you please pick on somebody else?”
Just coincidence: Kennedy’s sudden departure from the Supreme Court bench just prior to the midterm elections while Trump is under Federal investigation for treasonous conspiracy with the Russians— and now he gets to pick his own judge.
Obviously, nothing to see here.
Snopes says the Harley Davidson CEO did not call Trump a moron, which is anyway an important fucking adjective short of what Rex Tillerson DID call him.

These guys voted for him. Did they not notice bankruptcy is his business model?

Richard Nixon founded the Environmental Protection Agency, as crazy as that seems.
You’d need to be off the charts crazy corrupt to disgust Tricky Dick, but Scott Pruitt is already past his eyeballs in suits and investigations for payoffs, sweetheart deals, graft and malfeasance even as he reverses every environmental protection on the books.
