HSIOW. Holy Shit. It’s Only Wednesday.

Big things are starting to happen. Rhetoric is ramping up from Trump. Stories about his fitness to hold office aren’t just leaking out, but flowing out. Details of high levels of corruption are coming out like freshman at an art school.


Vanity Fair reports that Trump whines to his old security chief, doesn’t know what the 25th Amendment is or does, and SecDef Mattis and Chief of Staff Kelly might have to tackle Orange Julius in the event of a first strike nuclear order.

SecState Tillerson called Trump a moron after Trump called for a 10 time increase in nuclear weapons.

More and more reports are coming out of the White House that describe either a senior citizen in the beginning thralls of a nervous breakdown or a toddler having a temper tantrum.

In response to these attacks on Trump, threatened the news organizations that say bad things about him.


Trump’s upcoming trip to the United Kingdom has been downgraded from an official state visit. The Queen doesn’t want to meet him. The Mayor of London doesn’t want him there. The Prime Minister can’t afford to be seen with him. Nobody wants to meet with him.

Former House Speaker John Boehner called Trump a “total disaster.”

The biggest, best, and most eviscerating attack on Trump came from Eminem freestyling at the BET Awards. Eminem went off on Trump in an amazing freestyle rap that pulled no punches, left nothing unsaid, and even found an interesting rhyme for orange.

CNN has an article with the lyrics here.

Yes, it’s taken 3 months to squeeze in a Hamilton reference.

The House Intelligence Committee plans to release the Facebook ads bought by the Russians. The HIC investigation has been a clusterfuck due to partisanship and “Dipshit Cowpoke” Devin Nunes. But so far, they’re the only group that has announced this so far.

Reuters has an important article about the investigation. It describes the way that the three Congressional committees are approaching the Steele Dossier.

The most important thing that comes out of it is a quote from Senator Sheldon Whitehouse.

“As I understand it, a good deal of his information remains unproven, but none of it has been disproven, and considerable amounts of it have been proven,”

That’s a really big deal.

An older story circulating on Twitter about Trump’s relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.

That’s it for today. Like I said earlier, something big is about to happen. Politicians in both parties are openly talking about Trump, his mindset, mood, and fitness.

And I didn’t even get to the stupidity of trying to get out of the Iran deal.

Thank you, and have a good one.
