An Attack on Our Country?

Trump is pissed. In response to the F.B.I raid, he said, “It’s an attack on our country, in a true sense. It’s an attack on what we all stand for.” This is not an attack on our country. It’s a defense of our democracy. This is not an attack on what we all stand for. We stand up against fascism. We cannot allow our country to turn into an authoritative ruling. Trump is not above the law. If he fires Robert Mueller, his ass is done. He should just hand over his presidency now before Stormy Daniels takes him down.

Mueller’s Getting Close

Matt Apuzzo breaks the news:

The F.B.I. on Monday raided the office of President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, seizing records related to several topics including payments to a pornographic-film actress.

Shit is about to go down.

Asian-Americans Swing Virginia

David Leonhardt:

Virginia is the clearest example of a state that has moved to the left politically. After decades as a Republican stronghold, it has voted Democratic in every top-tier statewide race — president, senator, governor — since 2010.

But as well-known as Virginia’s transformation may be, one major cause of it hasn’t received much attention: Asian-American voters. Their numbers have boomed in recent years. Their voter turnout has also risen. And the radicalization of the Republican Party, especially on cultural and racial issues, has sent Asian-Americans voters fleeing to the Democrats.

Ann Coulter Storms Trump

Ann Coulter tweeted:

So Stormy says she and Trump had sex only once. I guess if you want the guy to screw you repeatedly, you have to be one of his voters.

I have never agreed with Ann Coulter except for this one. I wish more Republican leaders could be as strong as she.

The Hypocrisy of a GOP Representative

Tim Murphy, former member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Pennsylvania’s 18th district, cheated on his wife. After Murphy impregnated the woman who he had an affair with, he asked her to abort their unborn child. After she had an abortion, he posted an anti-abortion statement on his Facebook page. It’s a disgrace and this is what the Republican party has become. The laws just don’t apply to them.

Of Course She Knew

The whole world knew. He fucked porn stars. He had prostitutes pissed on him. He grabbed women by the pussy. He harassed girls sexually. He cheated on his previous wives. Of course, he cheated on her too. God knew and she knew. Neither of them gives a fuck. A pig will always be a fucking pig, and yet a pig can be the president of the United States too. The bar can’t get any lower than this.

Free From Politics

Sam Dolnick writes about “The Man Who Knew Too Little”:

Donald Trump’s victory shook him. Badly. And so Mr. Hagerman developed his own eccentric experiment, one that was part silent protest, part coping mechanism, part extreme self-care plan.

He swore that he would avoid learning about anything that happened to America after Nov. 8, 2016.

When I lived in Poughkeepsie, New York and worked at Vassar College, I had no internet and no cable in my apartment. I spent most of my nights reading and watching movies. I knew so little about politics. I wish I could go back to those days now.

The Stress Test of Liberal Democracy

David Remnick:

The next significant chapter in this stress test for liberal values will be the midterm elections of November, 2018. If the Democratic Party fails to win a majority in either the House of Representatives or the Senate, Trump will be further emboldened. His capacity for recklessness will multiply and go unrestrained. The Republican leadership, which has already proved shocking in its cowardice, will be even less inclined to challenge him.

The Republican leaders are beyond coward. They are a bunch of fucking sycophants.

Golden Showers

Jane Mayer writes:

The sources said that when Trump had stayed in the Presidential suite of Moscow’s Ritz-Carlton hotel, in 2013, he had paid “a number of prostitutes to perform a ‘golden showers’ (urination) show in front of him,” thereby defiling a bed that Barack and Michelle Obama had slept in during a state visit.

I try to stay away from politics, but every time Ms. Mayer has a new piece in The New Yorker, I have to stop everything and read it. What a great report on “The Man Behind the Dossier.” I have tremendous respect for Ms. Mayer.

Lờ đi

Không xem bất cứ tin tức bất cứ gì về đương kim tổng thống Mỹ. Không đọc những gì ông tweet. Không quan tâm gì đến chính trị Mỹ hiện giờ. Nước Mỹ đã bị chia rẽ ra quá nhiều. Những nhà cầm quyền vì lợi ít cá nhân và đồng tiền đã bán đi lương tâm và đạo lý làm người của mình. Thật không xứng đáng chút nào cả.

Càng để ý đến càng thêm tức giận. Nền tảng dân chủ của nước Mỹ đang bị đe dọa và làm nhục. Thế mà những người có trách nhiệm với chính quyền không dám đứng lên để bảo vệ nó. Để một thằng già với đầu óc hẹp hòi và tính tình của một đứa trẻ ba tuổi phá hoại tanh bành. Thật tội nghiệp cho đất nước Mỹ.

Tôi vẫn tin rằng chế độ dân chủ của Mỹ sẽ bền vững tuy nó đang trong tình trạng khủng hoảng. Chỉ còn chín thắng nữa chúng ta sẽ thấy được số mệnh của nước Mỹ. Tôi sẽ đợi. Đợi chờ đất nước Mỹ được giải thoát. Còn giờ đây tôi chỉ bị lờ đi và thu nhỏ lại thế giới riêng của mình. Trong chính trị tôi đã bớt căng thẳng nhiều vì thật ra tôi cũng chẳng làm được gì. Tôi còn một gia đình bé nhỏ để lo lắng. Chuyện chính trị tôi coi như kẻ ngu si hưởng để thái bình.
