Remember how they’d throw a Flag Desecration amendment on the ballot every two years? Federal, state, local—it pulled the ticket-voting R’s to the polls forever. (Mitch McConnell didn’t like the amendment, probably liked the votes.) Donald Trump can roll an oldie into his playlist, but should we talk about it, or not? Or not-not, or not not-not? David Waldman refuses to give this folderol more than 50 minutes attention today.
Trump does have a knack for rallying his followers.
Meanwhile, Greg Dworkin sounds the klaxons for
the end of democracy.
Supremacists rejoice, and also continue their angry
victimized whining. The
Anti-Bernie is now in power, and is just
one of Trump’s free passes. Did you know the Donald
Trump plans to get rid of Obamacare? Yes indeed, and as
HHS secretary, Tom Price is the
best pick for that job. Then on to Medicare, Medicaid, etc. Greg remembers
the successes of the
Flu Leadership Blog. Yes, Newt Gingrich
wanted Medicare to wither on the vine as well. Trump
continues hiring precisely
the people needed to carry out his plans.
Forget the conspiracy stuff, forget the Russians, disqualified ballots accounted for many more votes than Trump’s win. How to listen and respond to calls for an audit and recount.
There is a whole bunch of crazy going on in Trump Deputy-NSA designee Kathleen McFarland’s family.
