Hi-time for a rant. Believe it or not, IRL I am not a blue owl, I'm actually a scientist and an expert in infectious diseases. #Influenza #trumpwillkillusall #ETTD thehill.com/policy/healthc…
The science thing, as well as being a compassionate human being make me completely outraged about the fact that refugees will not receive an influenza vaccine. #Influenza #trumpwillkillusall #ETTD
Flu is nothing to fool around with! In 1918 an influenza pandemic killed at least 50 million people (3% of the world's population)! It infected 500 million people including people in remote areas like the arctic. #Influenza #trumpwillkillusall #ETTD

1/ From my book #ETTD

In the brief interregnum between naming a new chief of staff, America watched the antics of Anthony Scaramucci, a man with the affect of a person deeply familiar with the edgy joys of Bolivian Marching Powder.
2/ Scaramucci’s rise as the court jester of the Trump White House soon came to a screeching halt.

...

If there was a polar opposite to John Kelly for seriousness, it was the aforementioned hypercaffeinated White House leprechaun Anthony Scaramucci.
3/ Within hours of Scaramucci’s announcing he reported directly to the president and didn’t have to work through the chief of staff, Kelly dropped the hammer on the Mooch.

Now isn't THIS interesting in light of rumors Acosta was told by higher ups to lay off Epstein? From 11/2018: thedailybeast.com/jeffrey-epstei…
"But as part of that deal, according to records cited by the Herald, Epstein provided “valuable consideration”—in other words, critical information—to fed investigators." 2/
"There’s no direct evidence of what that info was, but records show that at around same time, Epstein was considered to be crucial witness during trial of two Bear Stearns executives who faced allegations of corporate securities fraud during 2008 financial crisis." 3/

1/ In the name of Trump... Hannity whores "Deep State" conspiracy kookdom, Dinesh bashes Milton Friedman, Levin proclaims war hero Mueller is worse than authoritarian despot Putin, Rush now supports tariffs (taxes), they ALL cheer Trump's assault against the rule of law...
2/ ...and NONE of them give a damn about out of control spending or the skyrocketing National Debt. NONE OF THE ABOVE ARE BASED ON IDEOLOGICAL CONSERVATIVE PRINCIPLES... In fact, they are the antithesis thereof...
x/ ...but yet these shameless money-grubbing grifters, who unabashedly traded any semblance of credibility in order to placate to the #TrumpCult via defending Trump's every evil, are somehow still falsely dubbing themselves the "conservative" media. #ETTD

How in the hell did this dumb betch not know her tweets were public? Like, she actually believed she was communicating directly with Trump? 😁🤣

#MAGAts
Whoopsies! Was it worth it? #ETTD 😁🤣

She's gonna lose her job over this. Trump'll hire her.

"Schools CANNOT ask students about their immigration status or report them or family members to federal immigration authorities."
"Clark, an English teacher at Carter-Riverside HS, has worked w/the district since 1998... and has a history of violations — including insulting her students’ ethnicity....the district was already investigating separate allegations of derogatory remarks from Clark."

Shocked. NR

🤡#LOSER 1 🤡

Trump exerts executive privilege over Mueller report. (Wait, is that in the Constitution?)

Nadler says, “[T]his kind of obstruction is dangerous. The Dept's decision reflects Trump’s blanket defiance of Congress’s constitutionally mandated duties.” #GONADler
💩 #LOSER 2 💩

House Judiciary votes and holds Barr in contempt. Vote now goes to full House.

Mnuchin refuses to provide Trump's taxes because Trump's a #BillionDollarLoser. (Spoiler: It's why he met with Russia.)

1/ On the same day Donald Trump continues his revanchist, unhinged ragetweeting about the press being enemies of the people and demanding public apologies from journalists, he's meeting with @jack.
2/ Sure, it's very difficult to say "no" quotes to a meeting with the President, even this madman.

That said, I truly hope @Jack and the @Twitter execs who took this meeting understand that they just got played hard by a master con man.
3/ They just put their brand, its image, and, hell, their equity in the hands the man who will corrupt anything he can.

He's the ultimate master of special pleadings.

He will characterize their commitments to him in ways they can't walk back.

There are two prevailing theories on Bill Barr.

Let’s examine them, and see if we can figure out what the deal is with the AG.

[THREAD]
1/ The first is that Barr is (secretly) a patriot, sent in to ease Trump out of office in a way that will not rile POTUS up enough to do even more lasting damage on his way out the door.
2/ In this scenario, Barr is throwing red meat at the MAGA idiots—like today’s “spying” comment—to lull Trump into a false sense of security.

My man @TomJChicago lays this out nicely here:

To catch everyone up here:

1) Avenatti tried to falsify witness corroboration
2) When caught, he obstructed NBC from vetting his claims
3) As a result, NBC couldn’t find the “witness” he hid from them until too late
4) Thus, they couldn’t run her story

1/
5) When they did find her, her story was that Avenatti misrepresented her account

6) With Grassley launching a criminal referral, the story is newsworthy again

2/
7) So NBC ran it’s story on the witness Avenatti provided this week. That story was about Avenatti’s sleazy, gameplaying re: a sexual assault allegation.

8) Now, the right is angry at.... the media. They are seizing on all of the above to blame the media for Avenatti’s crap.

Let’s clear up a few things about Trump, as we head into Labor Day weekend.

[THREAD]
1/ Trump is NOT going to fire Jeff Sessions. Nazi Keebler Elf remains popular with GOP, and Trump has said repeatedly he hates him b/c of the Russia recusal. Firing Sessions = egregious obstruction.
2/ If Trump fires Sessions anyway, well, please re-visit this thread on what happens if he moves against Mueller:

💰AssetSiezure3💰

@20committee told us TWO yrs ago Manafort’s sidekick was RU GRU agent Konstantin Kilimnik, spent a decade advising Yanukovych, lobbied for Pakistan’s ISI, & was a hired ‘fixer’ for rebels in Angola, Ferdinand Marcos, and Zaire’s dictator Mobutu Sese Seko.

1/ Let's review the arc of the Scott Pruitt story.

Phase One: Scott Pruitt is a true conservative, a national hero, and a fine American.

Talking Point: "ALL WE DO IS WIN. Shut up, libtard Deep State Swamp RINOS shill."
2/ Phase Two: Scott Pruitt is showing some signs of adjusting to the job. What? Don't YOU need a $43,000 Cone of Silence?

Talking Point: "LA LA LA LA I'm not listening. We need a conservative warrior so coal companies can dump slurry into nursery schools so we can MAGA."
3/ Phase Three: Well, maybe it LOOKS bad but who cares? We're not those soft, wussy GOPers who cared about laws and ethics and all that swamp stuff.

TALKING POINT: "Trump loves him, so suck it, libs. He's going NOWHERE."

Let's talk about Fox News.

[THREAD]
1/
That Fox News is the opposite of its "fair and balanced" slogan is well known.

But it's one thing to present the news, the actual news, in a way that is slanted towards conservatives.

It's another thing to just spew complete BS.
2/
Sometime during 2016, Fox became not the GOP news channel, but the Trump news channel. Its talking heads are there to spew Trumpist lies, to spin Trumpist BS.

(Well, that and to sexually harass women, but that's also a Trumpist trope).
