Gotham City Digest: Independence From Sanity edition

(Some mushrooms shouldn't be eaten.)

     In the words of the immortal Walter Sobchak, "Shut the fuck up, Donnie."

     Has anyone been following this bullshit coming from mainland China? Their puppet government in Hong Kong just passed a draconian new law that essentially strangles any freedom of expression that could theoretically include every single person on the planet earth. Yes, you read that correctly. Even people in foreign countries criticizing these Commie bastards can face legal consequences under the intentionally broad language of the bill.

      365 days at one of his golf clubs in less than three and a half years. That's over quarter of his so-called presidency.

      "President Pence", Billy? Seriously?

      "(T)he Statue of Liberty still towers over New York Harbor. But it is harder today to convince others that Americans embrace—or practice—the ideals that Lady Liberty represents."  Robin Wright, the New Yorker

     Another day, another angry old racist.

     Your Karen o' the day.

     In a rare instance of the Trump DOJ doing its job, it went after pandemic price gougers. Then, more true to form, the Trump WH decided to obstruct it. Typical right wing scumbaggery.

     The extremist judges shoe-horned into the federal judiciary, the war on mail-in ballots, it's all of a piece designed to illegitimately keep Trump in power. And Trump is laying the groundwork for it right before our eyes.

    Man, if former Bush crazy woman Karen Hughes is taking you to task for being a right wing nutter, then you've strayed about 1000 miles off the GOP reservation.

     #BenedictDonald. God, I wish I'd thought of that.

    “We were so excited in the beginning. A businessman to run our country like a business and it hasn’t happened.” Yeah, because that worked out so well under Bush, right, asshole?

     Sen. Bill Cassidy thinks an 11.1% unemployment is "great" and may not support another stimulus because of that. God, I hate these murderous clowns.

     Red states gotta stay red.

     The deleted final scene in I AM LEGEND.

    The Cold War between DeSantis and Trump (and there IS a cold war, trust me), just got a lot hotter when Trump hired Susie Wiles, whom DeSantis ousted from the Florida GOP, to work on his campaign.

     Does anyone want to break this to Fredo and Eric?

     Kudos to Tim Kudo.

   No matter how badly you think you have it, you can always say, "At least I'm not Ghislaine Maxwell. Or Jeffrey Epstein."

    This is the guy Trump's pimping over Sessions.

   Interim chief of the Aurora CO PD fires three cops for mocking Elijah McClain's death. So, naturally, the pig union calls for the interim chief's ouster for her "rush to judgment."

    Good. More dead Republicans. But they could also take down decent people with them before they drop.

    If this doesn't show Republican contempt for the vox populi and the people in general, I don't know what does. I'll just say one word: Bayonets.

   This alone, an illegal $2800 donation from a Turkish national, should invalidate Trump's entire campaign. But the FEC is essentially dead and doesn't have a quorum to enforce its own laws.

    This shouldn't surprise anyone who knows the first thing about Trump. Like the man said in 1976, Trump isn't interested in doing anything "unless there's some moral larceny attached to it."

     Meme intermission.

     Considering how many red states he's losing, I don't think it even matters if he wins Florida, which is seen as crucial.

    Native Americans (Lakota Sioux) were blocking the only road to Mount Rushmore. You can imagine what the government's response was.

     What they've been saying for months is absolutely true- Trump's already given up on fighting this pandemic, not that he ever meaningfully tried. So the so-called administration's new message is simple: "Live with it."
      Or die with it.
     The chart's already outdated and needs to be expanded yet again. Yesterday alone, we'd chalked up another 55,000+ new cases, another record. And Trumpie the Klown's going to a fireworks show.

     Meme o' the day: I Went to Mount Rushmore and All I Got Was This Lousy 300 Lb Lump of Flesh edition.

      To rephrase an old adage, if you sleep with dogs, you wake up with coronavirus.

      Yes, these right wing morons told Oglala Sioux, Sitting Bull's people, to "go home."

      White people whose ancestors forced black people to have their own water fountains, rest rooms, restaurants, night clubs and baseball league are angry the NFL is playing their own national anthem.

     At this point, unless you're a 1% scumbag still holding out for more tax & regulation rollbacks, you have absolutely no reason to support Trump.

     A Tale of Two Cities, as told by the Republican Party. (Bonus question: How the fuck can a political party that prides itself on fiscal responsibility spend nearly $40,000,000 on a convention that was never held?)

     In a way, it's fitting that Trump's super spreader event at Mount Rushmore last night wasn't even held on July 4th since he seems averse to anything that's historically patriotic in our nation.

     And, as expected, he threw red meat to the white base.

    There's something deeply satisfying about Fredo's squeeze Kimberly Guilfoyle literally bringing a plague to the GOP. Let's see Greg Gianforte body slam this.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the completely illiterate Nevada GOP.

    "But there are still four months before the election — and any number of ways for Biden to blow it."
    Seriously, Politico? Biden's not the one cowering in the White House bunker, now is he?

   "President Trump’s unyielding push to preserve Confederate symbols and the legacy of white domination, crystallized by his harsh denunciation of the racial justice movement Friday night at Mount Rushmore, has unnerved Republicans who have long enabled him but now fear losing power and forever associating their party with his racial animus."
    Bullshit. The Republican Party's always been associated with racial animus ever since Republicans were Dixiecrats until the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. And finally...

     How ironic is it that the guy who worships totalitarianism cannot even come close to pronouncing totalitarianism?
