Gotham City Digest, September 12, 2018

     In which every single day is Trump Day and is about nothing else. Ever.

     So, Trump was recently on a South Dakota radio station and was asked if he had any words of comfort for farmers hurt by his insane trade wars. And this is what the sociopath in chief said in response: "They were gonna lose them, anyway."
      Yes, he actually said that. But not to worry, because he's gonna save them like nobody else can. Yer gonna be sick o' bein' saved, lemme tell ya.

     "Do no harm", eh, Google? But really, does it surprise anyone that the censorious cunts at Youtube (aka Google) have resorted to terminating the accounts of entire governments, including Syria?

     It's #MSWL day on Twitter and you know what that means, fellow scribes...
     But that's not all. This is what happened when Jessica Faust at Bookends made the mistake of attempting empathy and what she got from me in response.

     This is some very interesting reportage from Buzzfeed about two flurries of banking activity, one right after the infamous Trump Tower meeting and the other right after the election.

     Professional educator, eh? This is what this (former) teacher out of Slidell, LA said about the Nike ads, which really brings out the white southern racists faster than a free BBQ with moonshine kegs:
Want not to be stereotyped, tell people of that color to quit acting like animals and perpetuating the stereotype. Many are average people; the few ruin it.
     So, she's not only a white racist redneck but also one that's a concern troll, to boot.

     President "Grab 'em by the pussy" is already comparing himself to Lincoln. 'Cuz, you know, he's got all the best words.

     After giving himself an A+ at the 911 Memorial for throwing paper towels at Puerto Ricans and bragging about his invisible F35s last year, he does this just as hurricane season begins: Trump diverted nearly $10,000,000 from FEMA's budget to give to ICE to keep imprisoning brown people in his racist agenda.

     I'm sure many if not all of you still remember the countless clusterfucks of the Bush administration after Hurricane Katrina just over 13 years ago. Walmart trucks filled with ice and water were diverted from where they needed to go and sent instead to places where it wasn't so much. And then came Trump, Maria and Puerto Rico.
    CBS then CNN reported yesterday and today that up to 20,000 pallets of water have been sitting on an airstrip in Ceiba, Puerto Rico for nearly a year. 20,000 pallets equals millions of bottles of water.
     This bird's eye view from a news chopper shows just a tiny fraction of them.
     This wide angle view courtesy of CBS shows just how much was left to literally rot on the tarmac and they still couldn't get them all into the shot. They finally got around to delivering 700 of the 20,000 pallets and stopped when people began complaining of the foul smell and taste. This story broke yesterday, the same day Trump gave himself an A+ (As Bush continually did over Katrina) for throwing paper towels at Puerto Ricans who may or may not have been among the 3000 who'd drowned.
     Heckuva job, Trumpie!

     Speaking of literary agents...
     I don't friend kiddie book authors and certainly don't know the agents who rep them (although earlier this year I sent a query package to Christopher Little and told him if he repped me, he could stop living off his brief association with JK Rowling. Odd that I never heard back from him).
      But my heart goes out to these poor suffering bastards. It could've happened in any genre. It happened to the clients of Harriet Wasserman when she Judge Cratered herself in 1996 after things blew up between her and her one night stand, Saul Bellow. Then there was the nightmare suffered around the same time by Jayne Hitchcock and the Woodside Literary Agency. Now there's Danielle Smith and her aptly-named Lupine Grove. Her victims number about five dozen, more than enough for an actual Facebook support group.
      Now I'm not saying all repped authors will get ripped off and lied to. Most agents aren't like Danielle Smith.
      That's because most literary agents wouldn't be smart enough to sustain a massive deception for so long.

     "The affidavit says Guyger mistook Jean’s apartment for hers and that his front door was ajar when she entered. She also told investigators that she shot Jean after he refused her verbal commands."
      What verbal commands? "Get out of your apartment"?
      By the way, the arrest affidavit seems to be almost completely based on her own account and contradictory to that of the neighbors. In fact, Amber Guyger's statement keeps changing. She thought she was walking into her own apartment, then she starts barking commands before firing. The door was locked, meaning her keycard shouldn't have worked then it was ajar. This woman was either stoned out of her mind or she had an agenda.

     I'd like to call Duncan Hunter what he really is but I'm afraid Massengill would sue me. Seriously, not only did he live like the Aga Khan on campaign donations, not only did he blame his wife but he used it to boink five other women. Yeah, party of family values, if we're talkng about the Manson family.

     I've got problems with Bob Woodward. A LOT of them. For instance, his sitting on revelations for upwards of a year or more and storing them up for his books. A lot of the things he discovers from high ranking officials are things we should know NOW, not years later after the chance to do something about them has long passed. But he hits the nail on the head here. With Watergate, we were driven by the truth. There was Republican obstruction, sure, especially from the WH. But in Congress, enough Republicans were onboard so that Nixon absolutely would've been impeached if he hadn't resigned. Nowadays, it's all about which consonant you have after your name and party primacy.

     Mustache Man really is completely insane. The International Criminal Court is "illegitimate? That's what tyrants and their enablers say about the courts about to have them executed for war crimes.

     I love irony. Don't you?

     Fredo trolled Nike's new Colin Kaepernick ad with a picture of Daddy Warbucks. So, naturally, we decided to troll back.

     Nobody does the right thing then hides the records of their time in public office. When a public official hides public records that the public has a right to review, that means they did the wrong thing and they know it.
      The Republican Party's pathetic attempts to keep Kavanaugh's records from the eyes of the Democrats and the American public mean they know exactly of the wrong, and quite possibly illegal, things he'd done. For instance, read about his work on the Pickering nomination from 2006.
      Nonetheless, they're persisting. And finally...

     Tucker Carlson really doesn't like living in an America that isn't all white.

How did South Dakota vote in 2016 again?

Watch for the state to vote the same again in 2020.

I still can't generate my own ideas and that TV does all my thinking for me? That's rich coming from someone whose entire Storybook series was ripped off from MST3K.

Hey, how's the middle-aged wrestling gig turning out? Those bruises look hellacious.

It's going fantastic, thanks for asking. Its been slow going, but I'm making a lot of progress. I'm hoping to have my first match before the end of the year, although it's usually about a year in training before somebody is ready to have their first match in front of people and I've only been doing this since February. The bruises don't really hurt that much, they are just gnarly to look at. I bruise easily because I don't eat enough fiber, or at least that's what the trainer says. Have you seen the one I got on my leg a couple months ago? THAT one is my best yet, it's pretty impressive. Anyway, I'm having a good time with it, making lots of new friends and having an experience I've always wanted, so yeah, it's going just great. I love it, it's a dream come true. Would you like to know when I have my first match? I'll send you a video of it, it's gonna be a fun time. We know what my character is, but I don't wanna spoil it, it's pretty funny and I want people to be surprised.

I'll pass on the video, thanks. It's bad form to mock the mentally and emotionally disabled.
Don't be too disappointed if your first match is in the midget wrestling class (although there may be a mental midget classification I don't know about).
Thanks for leaving your "character" shrouded in mystery. It'll be fun thinking of what that could be. I'm thinking The Hack, where your signature move will be bombarding your opponent with unsold copies of your derivative books. In a way, it's a shame Fiona didn't join you in your fake sports pipe dream. You two would've made a great intergender tag team: The Mooch and Gold Digger.

Fascinating to see right wingers spinning the bottles left on the ground in Puerto Rico as obvious proof of local failure. SO many questions tey don't even begin to ask.

Course if they did, we would have a different President.
