Complicated

In other news, both Republican and Democratic staffers say former National Security Adviser Susan Rice did nothing wrong by requesting the identities of Trump staffers picked up on foreign surveillance. No shit?

Meanwhile, the Associated Press is covering private land-owners in Texas who could end up on the Mexican side of Trump's fantasy border wall, if it's ever built.

Finally, Ivanka Trump reportedly received new trademarks for her business in China on the same day she sat down for dinner with Chinese President Xi Jinping. But, you know, I have to hand it to Xi. He knows how to play the Trumps. Give them table scraps and they'll grovel. Trump recently backed down from labeling China a "currency manipulator."

As you might have heard, conspiracy theory kingpin Alex Jones is currently facing a custody battle in Texas where his Ex is arguing that she deserves full custody of their children because Jones is an unhinged lunatic.

Here's some A+ tweets.

So, there's that.

    Great Flying Spaghetti Monster, I have never understood how anyone could watch more than 2 seconds of Alex Jones and not be immediately aware that he is an unhinged crank who should be committed to a padded room or consigned to a barely traveled street corner with a sandwich ignored by all passersby. The fact that there are a huge swath of people that actually faithfully believe anyone this lunatic says tells us all we need to know about the state of intelligence in the US today. Worse, the fact that Trump actually considers him a reputable source should have made Trump ineligible for office on that factor alone.

    I suppose it wouldn’t be useful to play this her the judge because let’s face it, it’s not nearly the craziest or most disturbing rant Jones has ever gone on. Hell it might even convince the judge that Jones is just some harmless quack. I on the other hand watch this without laughing my skinny Irish ass off. Regulars here can already guess which Jones clip it is. Enjoy.

          WTF, and they let him on TV, maybe public access for the “he is crazy and I’m watching because I’m high and it’s funny factor”. Good Lord indeed.

    Alex Jones is nuts.

    In other news, water is wet.
