    I was riding high on the comedy of grown men and women relishing in saying "shithole" on TV, but now my morning was ruined by Facebook comments I saw on the pages of friends of my friends (because none of my own friends would dare). They (still) completely don't care that the President is an awful racist. I saw three different posts follow the exact same pattern: 1) blame Obama, 2) bring up Hillary for some reason and 3) say "at least someone is finally caring about America for once". It's exactly what White House insiders were allegedly predicting last night - all his most awful behavior does is energize his awful base.
    Saw the very same things myself. Especially #3. You forgot: 4) Show respect for the office and 5) the people elected him so it must be what America wants.

    People pointed out the idiocy of those statements. I mostly refrained. If they're still supporting him at this point, they're lost causes. A Trumpeter said he'd lose her support if he was ever caught in an outright lie and I did have to comment, "Pick one." If his mouth is moving, it a lie.
    And the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
    And we'll live a long life

    I know this is its own level of horrifying incompetence, but I laughed. White House struggles with muting function for 22 minutes on Iran conference call with reporters


    It took the White House 22 minutes to figure out how to enable the "listening only" feature on a conference call on Thursday in which senior administration officials announced that President Trump would continue to waive nuclear program-related sanctions, keeping the deal intact.

    "This White House can't even run a f*cking conference call," a reporter on an unmuted phone line angrily exclaimed to the entire call. "They don't know how to mute their line."

    "It's the illegitimate media that doesn't know how to conduct themselves. They can't mute their f*cking phones," an unidentified official said. "Mute your phones."

    Another White House official repeatedly attempted to quiet the noisy line "so the people in charge" could talk.

    "I think if everyone had half a brain and common sense and muted their phones, this wouldn't be a problem," she yelled in an apparent fit of frustration.

    "Hello? Hello?," one reporter interjected, some 15 minutes after the slated start of the call. "Has the call started?"

    "This is Kim Jong Un calling for Donald Trump," another reporter joked as tensions flared.

    "All participants are now in listen-only mode," the operator finally announced, much to the relief of everyone on the call. The call began at 1:07 p.m.

    A State Department official announced at the end of the call that the technical difficulties prevented the senior administration officials from taking any questions from reporters.

    A story from WSJ today says that Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, had a porn star sign an NDA and paid her $30,000 a month before the election to keep quiet about a sexual encounter with Trump in 2006 (he married Melania in 2005).

    It was actually $130,000 a month!

    They're denying it away, per usual. Nothing matters.

    He's in so much hot water why doesn't he do something charitable or kind to change the optics? Go visit a homeless shelter or a cancer ward. Show the world you're not a monster. Or.. just continue to go to Palm Beach every weekend. No one there needs you. They're doing just fine. Ahhhhh

    I was checking to see how CNN and FOX were each covering the stories from their websites. In one click you'd think you were living in a completely different country.

    Yeah, it's pretty shocking how different the worlds are. Reality vs whatever the hell the Fox/Breitbart people are experiencing.

    Sometimes you think a joke goes too far. At other times it feels just right.

    Seriously, thank fuck he's lazy and golfs so much. Because if he saw that, he would have surely tried to bomb NK with no further information.

    Just terrifying for Hawaiians. Having the dotard in the Oval office playing chicken with North Korea hasn't helped. He has made it a more likely scenario than it normally would be under other presidents.

    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    Tulsi Gabbard was on MSNBC. She was PISSED about the whole thing.
    At my core, I think we're gonna be OK.

    Unrelated to Hawaiian Panic, some other things happened.



    Interesting, all this GOP resigning from things. Very interesting.

    And I love protesters.

    Someone brought up the fact that it's a very real possibility there would have been at least one person who committed suicde because of this and it made me sick to think about. Because yes, if I had a way to do so and I got the warning that I was in a place about to be nuked... it's such a horrible way to go and such a terrifying idea to be sitting there and waiting for it. This was so fucked up.

    They're claiming someone hit the wrong button. I really hope that's a cover up for something and it's not that easy to make such a colossal mistake.

    ETA: This is why I am having trouble sleeping and it will be worse after today. This damn scenario.

    I don't get tired of activist projections.
