Today, Donald Trump read his president speech from a teleprompter, calling Dayton “Toledo”... While we await that presidential optics check from Todd, Cillizza et al., David Waldman meets us under the cloud under a cloud, under 250 more clouds of a mass shooting this year:
Donald says white supremacy and racism pull the gun on the trigger of the hate that has no place in America, therefore we should restrict videogames. White nationalist Steve KG Bannon harnessed gamer culture to get Trump elected. Stephen Miller spends his waking moments figuring out how to deny green cards to legal immigrants. Racist leaker of classified info, Pete Hoekstra had no proof of naturalization when he got his clearance to be Ambassador.
Liar and partisan fabulist John Ratcliffe succumbed to the pressures of fake/real-real/fake news to withdraw from consideration for director of national intelligence, so he can return to working on his optics.
James Comey is exonerated… or at least not being prosecuted by the Justice department on his Trump memos.
