LOL!-Among Trump's complaints about @NBC: "the network's photographs showed him with multiple chins"

He turned then to NBC, saying it's the worst, criticizing its reporters and saying it could not even come up with a flattering picture to broadcast. His complaint: photographs showing him with multiple chins. NBC's Turness replied that wasn't true, saying it was currently using a photograph showing Trump in a very flattering way. Trump also criticized a reporter who he said was in the room, who had moderated a debate but who he had been told was very upset when Clinton lost. Presumably that was a reference to ABC's Martha Raddatz or NBC's Lester Holt.


Um no, the constitution made it a big deal and for good reason.


We're not even in a Manchurian Candidate plotline, this is out in the open.

Poster in Danilovgrad. I'm a bit mystified by how the American right, always after the lousy commies, has decided that it's just fine to get into bed in Putin's Kremlin.

Okay, "Neo-Nazi" not "Alt-Right."

This took place in the Reagan Federal Building. On Saturday.

How NYT treated Clintons improperly-reopened case vs Trumps fresh 20 MILLION FRAUD SETTLEMENT



Here's the NY Times front page today. That blockbuster about Trump taking business meetings during transition? It ran on page A20.


Donald Trump Is the Result of White Rage, Not Economic Anxiety

The reason these "white working class voters" rejected the Democratic Party's economic message — which was a hell of lot more detailed than Trump's "You're gonna be sick from so much winning"— is that our economic message generally and Hillary Clinton's platform specifically was INCLUSIVE and talked about raising all boats.

The ONLY specificity Trump offered wasn't how he'd make white working class lives better. It was how he would make the Others (read: minorities, women, immigrants, gays, etc.) WORSE. That was a feature, not a bug.


Republican patriots put the nation at risk so that Trump could fulfill his dominant campaign promise. And, to be clear, it was not to make America great again, but to make access to America’s resources “whites only” again. The Klan recognized it, as did the white nationalists who gave Trump their full-throttled support. But, this wasn’t just a fantasy of the far right. The allure of a revived Jim Crow nation that proudly, willfully excludes and debases millions of nonwhites was so reaffirming and reassuring that everything else became secondary or tertiary. Everything else, including national security.


Hamilton cast responds to Trump's demand for an apology:

Dixon rejected the claims, replying:

“Conversation is not harassment sir. And I appreciate Mike Pence for stopping to listen”..


The show’s creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, who bowed out of the lead role of Alexander Hamilton in July after a year long stint, supported his cast saying he was proud of the musical and Dixon “for leading with love and proud to remind you that ALL are welcome at the theatre”.
