In other news, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was reported to be resigning this morning, then reportedly fired, and then nothing happened and he's still the deputy AG.

New York Magazine reports that this was a deliberate attempt to change the subject from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh being a serial sexual predator.

“The strategy was to try and do something really big,” the source said. The leak about Rosenstein’s resignation could have been the result, and it certainly had the desired effect of driving Kavanaugh out of the news for a few hours.

The story didn't even last a few hours. More like one hour. This story literally died in the time it took me to get lunch.

Meanwhile, former Trump campaign staffer Jason Miller is out as a pundit for CNN following a report that he spiked a woman's smoothie with an abortion-inducing drug after learning she was pregnant. Trump only picks the Best People.

Finally, John Oliver took a close look at Facebook's dangerous foreign policy last night and how the platform was used to spread hate and justify ethnic cleansing in Myanmar.

Toilet.

    Why don’t we just pick one thing, like the millions in insurance fraud Rump received for nonexistent damage to Mar A Lago and incarcerate him…yeah, blast from the past, but, I’m sick of this guy.

  • Loved that Oliver bit…and that’s why he wins the Emmy every year.

    At this point, is there any reason why Facebook should still be a thing or Mark Zuckerberg feted like he invented the wheel?

      Exactly. Sometimes when you “break things”, real people get hurt.

      • That was Facebook’s slogan because they only cared about beating the competition to corner the market. I.e., it was all about the greed and stopping to think about the ramifications of what he created was not even on his radar.

          I know. These massive new companies that control communications and records the world over have been allowed to develop under a policy of what is basically old style, robber baron, laissez faire capitalism. Which does indeed break things. And people.
