    It's nice that McNaughton is willing to explain his paintings, in case you didn't get it.

    The picture of Obama burning the Constitution is called "One Nation Under Socialism." And "After inviting Mr. McNaughton onto his show to discuss One Nation Under Socialism, Sean Hannity decided to buy the original painting for six figures."

    Jon, the chicken is telling you to see a qualified mental health professional, because CHICKENS CAN’T FUCKING TALK.
    At my core, I think we're gonna be OK.

    LOOK! IT'S WHITE JESUS AGAIN!

    I might not be the nation's leading Benjamin Franklin scholar, but I don't recall him living a particularly christian life. It looks like Washington and Lincoln and... Quincy Adams? are like begging to be taken out of this shitshow. Poor murdered JFK and Lincoln. Haven't they been through enough?

    I think the pregnant white lady in the bottom right looks a little too much like Blossom. Someone must have been binging Big Bang Theory.

    In the back between Washington and Lincoln... Is that Nathan Fillion as Mal Reynolds?

    get yer popcorn ready



    What are you guys thinking about North Korea: did Xi and Kim together fuck over Trump or did Xi pit Trump and Kim against each other? I mean, clearly Trump is the dupe. I just don't know if Xi is acting in Kim's interest or just China's.

    I think we need a whole other thread for Korea. Maybe in OIT, get some more people discussing it?

    Trump is meeting with Rosenstein right now about his "I hereby" word vomit tweet from over the weekend. You know, to investigate how unfairly he's had it.

    Ben Wittes has some advice for us so we don't immediately panic when the meeting is done and some dumb plan is released.

    (1) The key threshold question is whether the White House follows up on President Trump’s tweet yesterday promising “officially” to direct the Justice Department to investigate supposed infiltration of the Trump campaign for political purposes.

    If it doesn’t, the whole episode may peter out—at least for now. That has happened before. It could happen again. Remember that Trump is, among other things, a wuss.

    (2) If the directive does materialize, pay particular attention to its precise wording. Many people will jump with a hot take on what it means. Don’t be one of those people. Take the time to read it very carefully.

    And think as you do both about what the message White House staff are sending to DOJ with it and what wiggle room the text leaves to the DOJ officials who receive it.

    (3) Look, in particular, for whether it directs an actual investigative action or whether it merely directs the provision of some kind of information or conclusion.

    If it does not direct specific investigative conduct, ask yourself whether that is the White House Counsel’s office trying to give the Department space to comply with the President’s directive without improperly launching a criminal investigation.

    In other words, ask yourself whether that is White House staff trying to create a mechanism to deflate the situation.

    (4) If the directive actually demands an investigation, look for whether that action could reasonably be encompassed within the action the Justice Department already took yesterday: referring the matter to the DOJ inspector general.

    In other words, ask yourself whether that is also the White House Counsel’s office tamping down the situation by ordering the department to do what it has already done.

    (5) If the order demands an investigation not encompassed in yesterday’s IG referral, think like a person who does not want to receive such a directive, believes it is corrupt, but does not want to resign if he doesn’t have to because there’s an investigation to protect.

    Such a person will ask himself what wiggle room there is in the language. This is what the folks at DOJ will be looking for. Is there a way to comply with the order without doing something unconscionable? If such a path exists, look for it to be taken.

    If Rosenstein and Wray wanted to be this era’s Saturday Night Massacre victims, they would have resigned long ago.

    (6) Look for whether the directive requires the disclosure to Congress of information about the FBI’s confidential source. Separately from the opening of any investigation, that would, I think, be a red line for certain key DOJ/FBI people.

    (7) Most of all ask yourself this question: If I were Rod Rosenstein or Chris Wray, is there any way I could comply with this order and still look a line prosecutor or agent in the face again as a credible leader? That’s the needle these men will have to thread.
