In other news, a federal court has struck down North Carolina's gerrymandered congressional district maps. Again. Drawing a map to dilute Democratic voters is "precisely what the Republican-controlled North Carolina General Assembly sought to do here" the panel of three judges wrote.

Meanwhile, it appears former CIA director John Brennan still has his security clearance even though Trump said he was revoking it.

If you told me officials chose to straight up ignore Trump's commands until he forgets about it and moves on to the next stupid thing, I would believe you.

Finally, at a memorial service for Mollie Tibbetts, her father embraced the immigrant community and said they're "Iowans with better food."

Speaking Sunday afternoon to more than 1,000 people at a ceremony at his daughter’s former high school, Rob Tibbetts didn’t directly respond to comments by President Donald Trump and others who quickly seized upon the suspect’s citizenship to argue for changes in immigration laws. [...]

“The Hispanic community are Iowans. They have the same values as Iowans,” he said. “As far as I’m concerned, they’re Iowans with better food.”

It's really quite remarkable how the right wing media decided they were going use Tibbetts' death the moment her body was found but they dropped the subject in a hot second when they discovered that Tibbetts' family is liberal and that Mollie herself was critical of Trump on social media.

That's all that matters to them. Straight up tribal points-scoring.

    It would seem that the trumpers only care about violence against women when they can blame it on an immigrant.
    Otherwise, not so much.

  • Draxiar

    Many opponents of immigration basically said, “See? This is why we need to stop immigration!” but then fail to use that same logic when it comes to trying to solve gun violence with tougher regulations.
