Everything (and Everyone) Must Go!


Be careful what you wish for. On front, last year's post-election light show in Atlanta.

Because you were hopefully doing finer things this holiday weekend than tracking the crimes against decency, reason and truth by the malevolent Dumpster Fire currently poisoning our national landscape, a brief appalling round-up of what Trump did, which was essentially what he always does when he's away from his caretakers - golf, lie, rant. He spent Thanksgiving - and the next four days in a row - golfing at his golf club in West Palm Beach on our dime - his 102nd day visiting one of his own properties since becoming "president" and vowing he'd never see any of his golf clubs 'cause he'd be working so hard. He sent an excruciatingly awkward video message to U.S. troops boasting without any factual basis whatsoever that they are finally "winning" because he, the Toddler-In-Chief - "IT WAS ME" - was "letting" them "win."

Because a grifter is always gonna grift - Let's turn the presidency into the White House Shopping Network! - he spent Black Friday hawking MAGA (Mueller Ain't Going Away) crap: "Everything 30%!" (sic), from dog leashes to stupid hats to $45 tree ornaments: "Get in the Christmas spirit with your very own Make America Great Again Red Cap Collectible Ornament. Made of brass and finished in 24 karat gold (sic) this ornament is sure to make any tree stand out!" He also attacked CNN and the idea of a free press, boasted of his many fictional achievements by citing a wingnut conspiracy site, urged the election of a pedophile because his opponent "WANTS TO RAISE TAXES TO THE SKY," and claimed TIME magazine, an old obsession, maybe wanted him as person of the year but no thanks - a stupid, petty whopper of a lie swiftly called out by TIME - "Amazing. Not a speck of truth here" - and savaged by his fellow Americans. Their gist: "You are a hollow sad soul." So yeah. Post-Thanksgiving, nothing new under the tawdry sun.
