    • Kicking them when they’re down
      When I was working on the mayoral campaign here, I was shocked to discover how many people were in jail for months and even years, simply because they couldn’t pay a $100 fine. That’s insane.

    • Bernie Sanders vs. Elizabeth Warren
      Many supporters of Sanders or Warren have become rather vicious to each other. The claim from the Warren supporters is that their candidate is the candidate of ideas, having put out tons of policy proposals. (Sanders has 25 last time I looked, so he’s not shy on this.) She’s younger, and it’s important to some […]

Things I learned from Margaret Brennan’s interview with Donald Trump

Here are some things I picked up about Trump vs The World.

He doesn’t listen to his intelligence advisors. About anything.

He’s afraid of what’s in Mueller’s report and he thinks Bill Barr is going to squash it for him. At no point does he say he has nothing to hide.

Pompeii is probably going to run for Senate to bring his own brand of post millennialist dominionism to the legislative process. Huzzah.

He wants to keep troops in Iraq so that he can keep an eye on Iran. He distrusts his intelligence chiefs. And anyway, Iran is like the vorpal bunny:

Might have to attack.

Kim Jun Un isn’t really serious about his nukes. It’s all so tiresome for Kim. {{flipping through psych textbook toooooo… ah, yes, projection}}

Sounds like Donald lost this round to Kim. He was pwned. Who didn’t see that coming?

He has no plan for the shutdown because there’s nowhere to go that wouldn’t piss someone off bigly.

He’s thinking about invading Venezuela, probably to distract from that Wall thing.

And finally, he thinks football is too dangerous for Barron’s brain but, you know, perfectly ok for the brains of black players who can no longer protest police brutality. But not to fear, ratings are up for the NFC. So YEAH.

I couldn’t help but notice that Brennan cut the interview short.

Then probably spent time in an art museum trying to recenter herself.
