Who You Gonna Call?

We can criticize this individual all day for anonymously going to the NYT and denouncing the terrifying disaster that is the Trump presidency(not that anyone paying attention has been surprised), but where else could s/he go? To the borderline treasonous Congress? To the Pentagon to ask they stage a coup?

Congress was designed for instances in which a dangerously inept con man in the White House needs to be taken down. But who's gonna lead the charge? Paul Ryan? Mitch McConnell? Devin PoS Nunes? The fiasco and travesty that is the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings is proof we cannot trust the Republicans to do the right thing.

So, again, where was this whistle blower supposed to go?

With His Batman Now Gone, Sen. Graham's Robin Has Joined The Joker in the White House

WaPo:
"On Tuesday, [Sen. Lindsey] Graham took a seat on the couch of Fox & Friends, President Trump’s favorite show, and sealed his transition from apostate to Trump apparatchik...Having echoed Trump’s no-collusion line (as if that were the lone issue), Graham, a former military lawyer, picked up Trump’s attack on the justice system...From there, the South Carolina Republican echoed all of Trump’s attacks against the Russia investigation...Incredibly, Graham even joined the 'lock her up' movement...Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, could not have said it better." 

Watching the eulogies given by Meghan McCain and President Obama, I was wondering what the hell Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump were doing at Sen. McCain's service. Later, I read Sen. Graham had asked Cindy McCain permission to invite them, who accepted his request.

First of all, it was terribly inappropriate for Graham to ask Mrs. McCain for such a thing and put her in such a painfully awkward and unnecessary predicament. To invite Trump family members who never uttered a peep of disapproval when that walking sewage drain in the Oval Office repeatedly demeaned John McCain's military service and attacked him personally, even as he fought a deadly disease, was naive and insulting, at best. But seeing it is part of his re-election process, in which he's obviously going all-in kneepads for Trump, is both incredibly craven and despicable.

Lindsey Graham, you are one toxic piece of shit, sir.

Over the last few decades, western society, if not the world at large, has been moving in a more inclusive, open-minded, tolerant direction....
