he's Archie Bunker.
The troubling part.... After I stopped laughing, it came to me that Archie was a fictional character and a parody. DT is real and he's serious.
the elephant is the mascot/symbol/logo for the GOP. RIP GOP. (I've been brooding on the pic of minus proudly holding the elephant's trunk. At last, a positive thought emerged.) Maybe some of you versed in Photoshop could whip us up a meme.
Mother Jones has a long series of articles (75!) called The Trump Files. I've read two of them: Trump reads Hitler and Andrew Dice Clay thanks Trump for hookers. Fun (read "deeply troubling" reading for a while.
Or this.... David Fahrenthold, the WaPo reporter that has been tracking down T-rump's "charitable giving," just told Chris Matthews that he has records of $258,000 given by the rumpster's foundation to settle legal fees, etc. That should give Eric Schneiderman plenty of ammunition. I hope nobody gets to Schneiderman and he acts in time.
about to appear on Chris Hayes' All In. A line from one of her speeches: "Donald Trump has more support from Aryan Nation and the Ku Klux Klan than he does from the leadership of the Republican Party." Tell it like it is Sen. Warrens!
that T-rump Jr's gas chamber keeps popping up. Every time, his use of "indiscrepancy" appears. So, apparently, T-rump didn't enjoy the Dad's excellent education. So, we can add semi-literacy to the ever-growing list of T-rump virtues.
Btw, Salon has a good article about T-rump's claims about his education.
Rachel Maddow just gave a detailed account of T-rump's connection to the alt-right, white supremacists, and Nazism. I new none of this; maybe you don't, either.
In a recent National Press Club appearance, held in the basement ballroom of a hotel, several people (I guess; they were white men) explained how they have adopted a cartoon character of a green frog, named Pepe, as a symbol of their beliefs and desire for a white-only nation. Several pictures of Pepe, from their sites and Breitbart showed the frog with a Hitler mustache, etc. Then came a picture of T-rump in cycle leathers, bulging forearms, and Nazi paraphernalia flanked by Pence, his sons, Giuliani, Christie--and Pepe, all similarly costumed. It was posted on T-rump Jr's Iinstagram account. Could it get any plainer who these people are?
The aforementioned white guys carefully explained to the press how whites are superior to African-Americans (not their term), Hispanics (ditto), Jews--in short, everybody else. And how Pepe is a symbol of all that. And how D. T-rump has given them legitimacy, how he's their leader. The National Press Club originally scheduled this abomination in their main facility. Then, they cancelled it. Then, they rescheduled it in secret. T-rump's son just associated himself with all those cretins with this almost incredible Instagram post.
I'm a lifelong dem. That's a long, long time. I read posts here for several weeks before signing up. Now, I'd like to get to know y'all. (I'm a southerner, living in a Tea Party hotbed.) I'm looking forward to more of what I've read here, and contributing when I think it's useful--or just plain fun.
is guest hosting the Chris Hayes on MSNBC, right now.
