This might be in bad taste too - but I guess if the POTUS had pardoned you for being a convicted crook, you might be prepared to take extreme measures to say thanks to the God Emperor:

[Yes, this cartoon is in very bad taste, but so is The Donald.]

 

 

It's true though so it's hardly bad taste... I could point you to 50 tweets in the last hour that say "god sent trump to save the usa*" but I wont, because they're depressing AF. The religious nut jobs are out in force.

 

 

 

 

 

*intentional use of non-caps because neither god, trump or, now, the united states or america deserves caps.

From the Washington Post:

 

 

WHEN ACCOUNTS of abuse emerged in June from a detention center for migrant minors in Virginia — children as young as 14 stripped naked, shackled, strapped to chairs, their heads encased in bags, left for days or longer in solitary confinement, and in some cases beaten and bruised — it sounded like a scene from the Soviet gulag. This institution, the Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center, near Staunton, couldn’t possibly be in America. And if it was, it had to be an extreme outlier — a place that, while overseen by the Office of Refugee Resettlement at the Department of Health and Human Services, simply could not typify the federal government’s handling of children, undocumented or not, who make their way into this country.

 

But abuses alleged at that jail in Virginia turn out to be no worse than those inflicted, on even younger children, at another facility under ORR’s purview in Texas. Last Monday, a federal judge, incensed that underage migrants at the Shiloh Residential Treatment Center, south of Houston, had been routinely administered psychotropic drugs without parental consent, denied water as a means of punishment and forbidden from making private phone calls, ordered undocumented minors there transferred elsewhere.

 

Not the Soviet gulag. These things are taking place in America.

Then some people have problems with "retard", "idiot" and "stupid" being used to describe those people.

 

But remember, those are the people who wear tshirts like this:

I think we are in a pause phase until the outcome of the mid-term elections is known. After that all sorts of things could happen if the Dems. are in control of both houses.

Rick Gates admits to crimes during Manafort trial:

 

 

 

 

 

I just can't get enough of the fact that even as he was committing crimes with Manafort, he was also stealing from Manafort. Guy's a true believer. Crime not just a job, but a lifestyle. Apparently Manafort even chuckled a little when he said that. I suppose he had to be at least a little impressed.

Nixon was a crook who surrounded himself with crooks. You can tell a lot about somebody from the company they keep.

And a dangerous crook at the end. In the final days of his presidency he was drinking too much, depressed, and those close to him were fearful of him launching a nuclear attack!  Sounds crazy but think German Wings pilot suicide by plane scenario.

Trump Trivia:

 

Hollywood council votes to remove Trump's Walk of Fame star

 

West Hollywood City Council has unanimously approved a resolution to remove US President Donald Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

 

The motion called for the star to be removed because of what it says is Trump's "disturbing treatment of women and other actions."

 

The council’s Mayor John Duran said the vote was symbolic.
