Last night, my mom told me she was worried that North Korea was going to nuke us. And I honestly said, “Yeah, they’ll probably try.” I said it like it was nothing, and I realized I had already made my peace with it. Psychologists need to name what’s happening to people now, like Trump Fatalism Syndrome, or something like that. It’s not that I think our chaotic reality is “normal.” I’ve just made my peace with the fact that we’re all going to die by a pair of orange baby fists. So, here are some of the stories around today:
The Georgia 6th. Democrats were trying to make this into a huge thing but, as I said, I have Trump Fatalism Syndrome, so I wasn’t buying it. The Democrat Jon Ossoff got enough votes in yesterday’s special election to compete in a run-off election in June against Karen Handel. Don’t put all of your eggs in this basket, Dems.
Trump is going to sabotage Obamacare. Because of course he is.
The America-First bulls–t. Trump is going after H-1B visas, the same program which allowed my father to come to America from India to work as an engineer, and eventually attain American citizenship. Trump is literally trying to make it harder for STEM fields to hire the most qualified foreign workers around.
Susan Rice did nothing wrong. We already knew that, but now the reporting backs that up. Susan Rice was the National Security Adviser with access to classified information. She accessed that information. There is no scandal. No, that’s not true – the scandal is that the Bigly administration and Devin Nunes tried to scapegoat her. You can read the New Yorker’s piece about the situation here.
The US Attorneys. You know how Bigly Fists fired all of the US Attorneys a month ago? Yeah, no one has been hired in their place. AG Sessions wants a huge federal task force to enforce all of these draconian immigration policies, except there’s no US Attorney in office right now who can prosecute anything.
The Patriots will go to the White House today. They’ll get a no-media visit to the Oval Office, then the Patriots will get to do an event with Bigly on the South Lawn. A bunch of Patriots have already said they have no interest in going, so it will be interesting to see who shows up. Will Tom Brady go? Probably.
