In other news, White House counter-terrorism adviser Seb Gorka was apparently a big fan of an anti-Semitic Hungarian militia. The last time we checked in on Gorka, he was swearing allegiance to Nazi collaborators.

Meanwhile, McClatchy obtained sealed documents that detail more of Trump's ties to the Russian mob. Of course this story ends with real estate deals and bankruptcy.

Finally, post-Brexit Britain is poised to replace migrant workers with robots. Suckers.

    Between the Barf Bag on Jezebel and here, I am completely awestruck. I knew Trump would be bad. I thought i had a pretty pessimistic view of things. But every day – every single day – at least two or three things come out that are just horrible. Any one of them probably would have brought down the Obama administration. It’s staggering.

      Amen! And yet the coverage he is getting in the mainstream media still seems oddly like punches being pulled. This whole Russian debacle should be front page news every single day and be bleated on the cable news networks 24/7 a la Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi!!! and E-mail server terror-gate, but these far more serious allegations just seem to pop up periodically.

      Plus, I have to say that I do not understand why more people are not screaming about postponing Gorsuch’s nomination given that the man that nominated him is currently under investigation for potentially treasonous dealings with a foreign power.

        This is all happening because of the conscious decision of Republican legislators and Republican voters to tolerate, excuse and defend any act of corruption that takes place. Democratic voters & legislators would never tolerate this from their own party.

        I wonder if historians will regard this as the cynical age?

    So now England won’t even have whatever money immigrants were able to spend flowing through the economy. So much for trickle down. The people who voted for Brexit didn’t vote to help themselves. They voted to harm future generations of their own nation.

    • Cutting one’s nose off to spite one’s face is part of the membership pledge to the Isolationist Party, apparently.
