In other news, David Koch of the infamous Koch Brothers is retiring from Koch Industries and their Americans for Prosperity PAC network because of failing health.

Meanwhile, Education Seceretary Betsy DeVos says her school safety commission won't be looking at guns. So, you can throw that in the trash.

Finally, the Pentagon is now investigating Trump's former VA nominee Ronny Jackson. If even half of the allegations against him were true, he's probably finished.

Jackson is responsible for his own actions but, at the same time, he could lose everything because Trump nominated him on a whim with no vetting. Everything Trump touches turns to shit.

    Jackson didn’t have to accept the nomination, either. Crocodile tears for his reputation.

      Exactly. Jackson is not in any way a victim of Trump. Suggesting somehow his undoing is Trump’s fault is ridiculous. Trump may have provided him an opportunity to step into the spotlight, but Jackson didn’t have to take it. Ashby shouldn’t be suggesting Jackson has a “look what he made me do!” excuse.

  • If Hell actually existed, David Koch would be on the shortlist for entry.

    I’m not someone who celebrates a person’s (no matter that person’s nature) failing health and I won’t celebrate now either. The utter indifference I feel towards David Koch’s situation is however not normal. In fact I find it rather disquieting.

    I’ll just leave it there.

      Koch has vastly more than he could ever really use. So his actions really do nothing to benefit himself in any noticeable way (like adding a few drops to the ocean) but have been extremely harmful to thousands of people. When someone like that falls ill so they can no longer be as actively harmful? I take pleasure in that. Without reservation or regret.
