      (MANDOS POST MANDOS POST MANDOS POST MANDOS POST) In a weird twist of fate, American liberals and (some) leftists are finding themselves in the non-traditional position of standing in the “hawk” corner, while (some) American conservatives under Trump are in the position of wanting to cut deals with so-called traditional enemies of the USA.  Whether […] […]

Everything’s fine. Why do you ask?

Oh I dunno. Maybe it’s because the annoying orange’s cabinet in the White House is seriously considering invoking the 25th amendment?

He doesn’t even know what that is.

According to two sources familiar with the conversation, Trump vented to his longtime security chief, Keith Schiller, “I hate everyone in the White House! There are a few exceptions, but I hate them!” (A White House official denies this.) Two senior Republican officials said Chief of Staff John Kelly is miserable in his job and is remaining out of a sense of duty to keep Trump from making some sort of disastrous decision. Today, speculation about Kelly’s future increased after Politico reported that Kelly’s deputy Kirstjen Nielsen is likely to be named Homeland Security Secretary—the theory among some Republicans is that Kelly wanted to give her a soft landing before his departure.

One former official even speculated that Kelly and Secretary of Defense James Mattis have discussed what they would do in the event Trump ordered a nuclear first strike. “Would they tackle him?” the person said. Even Trump’s most loyal backers are sowing public doubts. This morning, The Washington Post quoted longtime Trump friend Tom Barrack saying he has been “shocked” and “stunned” by Trump’s behavior.

Ahhh, the Jaime Lannister Maneuver. Lol! How much do you want to bet they’re calling it that in private.

Jeezus Tap Dancing Christ.

Lady V said this would happen eventually. Let’s hope he doesn’t take the rest of us down with him.

Woot! It’s National Coming Out Day.

Live authentically. It’s good for you. It’s good for business. It makes life more interesting when everyone is not all the same flavor.

I don’t get why there is so much opposition to LBGTQ people. Usually, the argument goes, “you shouldn’t be gay because people will treat you badly”. I don’t get that. So, if people didn’t treat you badly, what exactly would be the problem?

Anyway, love is love. Happy Coming Out Day to everyone.
