WATCH LIVE: Trump’s Latest Xenophobia-Fest in Phoenix

The worst president this country has ever had is about to rant crazily in front of a crowd of delusional right wing cultists. Yes, again.

The big question of the night: his spokespeople have said he isn’t going to pardon Sheriff Joe Arpaio tonight, but will he make fools of them yet again?

Rachel just flashed some new PPP polling that will be released tomorrow. Her exclusive tonight.

54% of America thinks Trump should resign.

Poll was nationwide with respondents from both parties and independents polled. Others questions that were majority (but not over 50%): Trump is lying about the Russians and Trump’s campaign worked with the Russians.

I hope the Republicans are watching those numbers.

So the story making the rounds right now in wingnut circles is that ESPN has pulled an announcer from the UVa football game because his name happens to be Robert Lee.

This has apparently been confirmed by an ESPN statement. He was moved to cover a Pittsburgh game instead. The Robert Lee in question is asian, so no relation to Robert E. Lee. I am all for getting rid of confederate monuments and melting them to slag…but this seems a little ridiculous.

“Here’s some background on the “Blacks for Trump” cult leader you’ll see behind Trump tonight”

They must attend Trump’s rally because as a black female, I’m guessing they aren’t welcome at many of the black persons’ homes in Arizona or the homes of blacks in any other states. They’re in the same category as Ben Carson. I say this because even though I don’t know all Black Americans, I know most of us have an opinion about rejecting hate that can be attributed to our shared history in this country.

“Argh. Not Alveda King again. It’s a rerun of Trump’s worst racial exploitation moments.”

Take a chill pill, please. We need you now more than ever. Speaking as a Black American, I will say that if Trump thinks trotting out a few blah people will change most Americans’ view of his cowardice in opposing the KKKers, white supremacism, and anti-Semitism, he’s out of his freaking mind and so are those who convinced him to pull this little stunt of showing that a small group of blacks showed up at his Phoenix rally. Because I was reared to always be a lady, I won’t say what is really on my mind, but I will tell you, most Black Americans already know what’s up, and it won’t change our attitude about Trump, and it won’t encourage us and our allies to “join in unity,” which is what Lying Ryan is now calling for, with him on any matter. I don’t align myself with cowards, liars, haters, Islamophobes, homophobes, anti-Semites, racists, conmen and other kinds of human trash.

A feel good Little Green Footballs note

After the total eclipse, I posted four photographs I took here which are humiliatingly bad compared to Wheat Dogg’s photos.

I then linked that comment in a post to the atheism group I am the manager of for Intertel.

One of the commentators over at that group noted she used to be a regular reader of LGF but for some reason it had slipped out of her notice.

I do not know how long ago she was a reader here (or if she was a commentator), so I filled her in on the changes that occurred here before I came across the site. This was her response (real name removed from E-mail):

Thank you for putting LGF on my desktop! ‘Didn’t realize I had let it slip away until you mentioned it.

I will enquire if she was a commentator here before, and if so, under what nickname.

So the story making the rounds right now in wingnut circles is that ESPN has pulled an announcer from the UVa football game because his name happens to be Robert Lee.

This has apparently been confirmed by an ESPN statement. He was moved to cover a Pittsburgh game instead. The Robert Lee in question is asian, so no relation to Robert E. Lee. I am all for getting rid of confederate monuments and melting them to slag…but this seems a little ridiculous.

It seems that this was the announcers decision, not a mandate from ESPN. He felt it would be best to be reassigned.

Long rifles are perfectly legal to carry there. The state has preëmption laws in place against municipalities trying to outlaw it.

In other words, open carry isn’t allowed for liberals.

Welcome aboard! Sorry I’m late welcoming you; I just got back from town.

I only ran into Monty Python in my forties, but love to this day Rocky and Bullwinkle. Wasn’t much of a fan of Far Side, but love both Doonesbury and Bloom County if that makes up for it.

Pearls Before Swine?

I was fortunate enough to see the first series of Python. I stumbled on my first (and I think the first) show without knowing what was going on. Then I recognized Cleese, who’d been featured on a hit series. The Two Ronnies. IIRC Then the weather forecaster, in rustic garb and western English accent, mentioned an epidemic of flying sheep. Well, he clarified, they don’t so much fly as plummet.

There’s a third, stupider option.

News is performative now…even the written form. To get eyes you have to have a take that’s novel, or counter-intuitive, or hyperbolic, or in some other way perceives change or dynamism. Being the guy writing the “same shit happens, predictably” piece is career death.

New being performative has also resulted in “commentary” that isn’t by experts about specific subjects, but by performers (news readers, pundits, etc) about politicians-as-performers.

Both of which can be seen in the handling of Trump.

The fun thing about being a conservative these days is that when things do not go your way, you can just decide it is all part of a massive conspiracy. Are people protesting you or disagreeing with you? Well! It can only be GEORGE SOROS paying them to do so! Because your opinions and beliefs are so great and wonderful and perfect that no one would disagree with them if they were not being paid to do so!

For instance! If you are Idaho state Rep. Bryan Zollinger, and you’d rather not have to deal with the bad PR of a bunch of Nazis marching in Charlottesville and saying they love Donald Trump, you can go ahead and start suggesting that it is totally possible that OBAMA and all his minions actually set all of this up to make you look bad.

The Immigrant Investor Program (IIP) aims to have experienced business people contribute to Canada’s growth and long-term prosperity by investing in Canada’s economy. Investors must:

show that they have business experience
have a net worth of at least C$1,600,000 that was gained legally and
invest C$800,000.

More at Canada’s immigration services: cic.gc.ca

I’m guessing if you don’t have a lot of business experience but you’re willing to partner with someone who has it, Canada would overlook the first item.

re: #411 Unshaken Defiance

I say same reason I’m not a member of PETA despite having rescue cats. The organization is out of their collective minds, doing more harm than good.

PETA and the NRA are hustles…but the latter also sells the idea of a constant existential threat that private citizens must not only be armed to confront, but also radically deform the societal norms and laws about what constitutes “threat” and what merits lethal force.

And all of the aforementioned while glomming harder and harder to an understanding of who is Real American—the litmus test being social conservatism—that means that even their support of the 2nd Amendment has implicit exceptions.*

All that *could* be part of an especially conscienceless con job, but it seems to me like they exist in the same twilight realm as the politicized “evangelicals” and the conspiracy theorists, where cynicism and idealism overlap.

* in short…thugs have no right to bear arms or protest casual use of lethal force, and who is a “thug” is to be determined after-the-fact, by a specific slice of “acceptable” society.

This can already be seen in the careful dance done between evoking the image of vague authoritarian threat (to white conservatives) while pettifogging about definite authoritarian misdeeds (to brown, black, and liberal folk).
