Has anyone heard from Owain recently? I could really use someone with a different perspective to explain to me why this shouldn't completely outrage everyone.

At what point do things like this effectively become illegal? An official White House twitter account has now blatantly and intentionally defamed and falsely accused a member of the press of assault. Do we really have to have two more years of this shit show?

Good question. And it might be 6 more years. So far all signs point to Dems snatching defeat from jaws of victory and losing in 2020. Normally I'd be OK with that, but right now not so much.

Right now id say that 'normal' people, going by my definition of normal, are sorely under represented in govt and politics. My prediction is we are going to oscillate between extremes from here on out and eventually, the hot sweltering summer swamp of Trumpism will eventually fade post-Trump and our hangover will be a long winter of far left nutballs who literally hate everyone who isn't with 'them' and ensuing civil disorder as they push their own extreme agenda and clash with the ever-growing and emboldened hyper-right.

Its time for all of us to brush up on our Marcus Aurelius and get practiced in keeping some emotional detachment from current events, for the sake of our mental health. Its going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

What I find shocking is that Huckabee used a doctored copy of the video. This is resign-in-disgrace event under normal circumstances.

I really have hard time coming up with reasons why this would be less dangerous than 4 more years of Trump. Well, maybe, US will get universal health care out of it?
