That time when your head literally explodes

President Elect Donald Trump is naming Rick Perry, yes that Rick Perry as the head of the Department of Energy. The department he planned to close down, but couldn’t name while on the campaign trail. I wonder if he will be able to find his way to his office on the first day.

Traitors for Trump

Republicans, Trump supporters, the RNC, and the oligarch-elect himself, all seem to be fine with the behavior of traitors…as long as their party benefits at the expense of the majority.

FBI Director James Comey needs to be investigated, prosecuted, and have his ass tossed in jail for about the next 50 years for sitting on evidence of Russian RNC hacking. This isn’t some abstract matter. Russian intelligence put its thumb on the scale of a US election and Republicans will let it slide since they benefited.

How do we define traitors again?

Trump Change

For $24M, Emperor-elect Trump will settle two class actions lawsuits regarding how Trump University fleeced its students. For those of you keeping score that amounts to just over 1/2 of 1% of Trump’s net worth and, after the lawyers get their cut, maybe $600 per member of the class.

Crumbs from the emperor’s table.
