Two stories today that won’t make the Daily Update:
I just finished reading How Trump’s skepticism of U.S. intelligence on Russia left an election threat unchecked…and oh. em. gee.
The overall insanity is just…wow. But there is also little nuggets in there that open up so much more about who he is. For example, he’s treatment of Fiona Hill, the fact that they had to create a ‘3D model’ of the Russian compounds to convince him, etc).
Here’s a link to some of my highlights.
NYT: Inside Trump’s Hour-by-Hour Battle for Self-Preservation
With Twitter as his Excalibur, the president takes on his doubters, powered by long spells of cable news and a dozen Diet Cokes.
But if Mr. Trump has yet to bend the presidency to his will, he is at least wrestling it to a draw.
Yup, Trump is racist AF
I…I can’t even comment on this yet.
Read these articles. New drinking game, every time Trump makes an appeal to hypocrisy, take a drink.
This isn’t really an op-ed, but I think it’s crucial reading. If there’s a better place to put it, let me know and I’ll move it.
