Maybe try not being dicks for a while and see what happens. What have you got to lose?

No it wasn't.
They are pinballing off of one crisis bumper after another.

There are  no plans other than to milk it for as long as we can and divide the country enough to stay in power.

The president is likely to sign an executive order Thursday in the Oval Office focused on expediting permitting, the latest in a long line of White House events intended to speed infrastructure investment.

So it *is* Infrastructure Week.

Again.

It will be when they can do whatever they want without having to examine its potential impact on the environment, which is what the EO does.

Washington D.C. is supposed to be a shining example of democracy for the whole world to look upon in awe. Trump's Lafayette Square incident has put a tarnish on that shine that will take generations to wipe away. Let's not waste another minute in removing the senile buffoon from office for abusing the trust placed upon him by We The People.

Just think - only a few weeks ago we were in the Golden Age of the Trump presidency, you know, when thousands of people were dying due to a poorly managed pandemic and he was musing that people could inject bleach into their bloodstream. What he wouldn't give to be back to those days of glory and tranquility!

The headline in Sri Lankan papers yesterday was "America is on fire." The 3rd world, where human rights is merely a hilarious suggestion, is looking at us with pity. We're never getting our status back, even as generations pass. We're done. Any goodwill our ancestors generated is gone forever and we're still sinking fast.

No he didn't.

He was signaling to the far right evangelicals who still make up much of his base that he is indeed the divine instrument of their racist god and he will lead them in a holy war so that they can install their racist theocracy and own human beings.

No. No they haven't.

He's still mired in Jimmy Carter net approval territory, but only now are betting markets giving Biden a slight edge.

At best, Trump and his mimions are fanning the flames in urban America to make Team Blue look bad. (Every accusation is a confession.)

Remember the British diplomat who was recalled after his comments on this White House?  He said, every day was a knife fight.  That's the image I have whenever I think of these poor clueless boobs who signed up for this mess.  It's the episode of the original Star Trek where there's an alternate Enterprise and where favor and promotions come about by assassinations.  I keep expecting Trump to show up in front of a camera one day with a goattee.

Well if the Evil Cartman episode of South Park has taught me anything, it's that people who are evil in our universe are actually good in the evil universe. So if Trump shows up in a goatee, the first thing he will do is give a compassionate speech about the evils of racism, then he'll take all the protesters out for ice cream.

Watch a Downfall parody video.

In the original context, Hitler brushes off his generals' bad news (that the Soviets have taken Berlin and most of Brandenburg) by reassuring them that General Felix Steiner will launch a counter-attack to drive the Red Army out of Berlin. The generals inform him that Steiner's counter-attack never happened. He is... somewhat displeased by this.

He got to be President without putting in any of the work of learning how to govern and he expects that governing for a third of Americans is going to have happy results?

They live in a conservative information bubble of faux news, am radio and the Ilk. They literally aren't hearing all the bad things he's done. Obama correctly said they live in an alternative universe.

Conservative media started by Rush Limbaugh may literally be the downfall of the American experiment

You have all the historical perspective of a June bug. In fact, it's more of a hysterical perspective.

trump and his cronies have looted billions in sweetheart contracts, unsustainable tax cuts, and outright fraud, which they'll get to keep long after he's dead and gone. So... yeah, they may be bummed that the complete free-for-all may be winding down, but I imagine the overall mood is pretty good.
