  • Hard News: RNC 2016: A literal shitshow,

    Even in small groups, he is completely incoherent.


    ETA: Jaw dropping moment:

    DIEHL: What about China and the South China Sea. What do you think they’re up to and—

    TRUMP: I think it’s a terrible situation, I think it’s terrible they have no respect for–

    DIEHL: –and what should we do about it?

    TRUMP: Well look, we have power over China and people don’t realize it. We have trade power over China. I don’t think we are going to start World War III over what they did, it affects other countries certainly a lot more than it affects us. But—and honestly, you know part of—I always say we have to be unpredictable. We’re totally predictable. And predictable is bad. Sitting at a meeting like this and explaining my views and if I do become president, I have these views that are down for the other side to look at, you know. I hate being so open.

    My biggest fear with all this is 'what happens next?' Even if Trump loses, I really doubt that everyone is going to then pack up quietly and go home. Same with Brexit.

    This is concerning a lot of my American friends, yes. Whether Trump wins or loses, he's already screwed the place up.. We may be witnessing the start of the 2nd American Revolution, or the 2nd Civil War...

    Finally, although the RNCinCLE is the gift that keeps on giving, this:

    The Republican Party nominated Donald Trump as its candidate for president of the United States - and I responded by ending my 44-year GOP membership.

    I hope his feeling spreads.

    Well, the situation with Meredith McIver just got serious for Trump. He's now alleged to have broken federal elections law by having a corporate employee carrying out duties on his campaign.

    Rock and hard place - either McIver really truly does exist and Trump is guilty, or he has to admit he made her up, so there's no case to answer. Either way, he's going to have a harder job painting Clinton as lawbreaker and liar. Not that that will stop him, of course.

    In a side note, the Federal Election Campaign Act has the acronym FECA, which seems very proper in 2016

    Fab article by Laurie Penny about Milo Yiannopoulos and the gay Republican trollery:

    Regarding Paddy Gower, I had to laugh at his comment a few nights ago that "they are really drinking the kool-aid here."

    That knee is full of iron, though I doubt Gower comprehends that.
