In other news, North Korean officials are calling bullshit on Trump's version of events. Trump is probably lying or exaggerating to some degree, but the North is also probably lying or exaggerating to some degree. This is what happens when two snakes get together.

Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will soon be indicted for several counts of breach of trust, bribery, and fraud.

Finally, former Maine Governor Paul LePage (R) crawled out from under his bridge today to defend the electoral college in the name of white supremacy. And he apparently said this without a hint of irony.

Speaking to the hosts of the WVOM morning show this week, former Governor Paul LePage lambasted a bill being considered by Maine’s legislature to join with other states to essentially bypass the Electoral College and ensure that the President is elected by the national popular vote.

“Actually what would happen if they do what they say they’re gonna do is white people will not have anything to say. It’s only going to be the minorities that would elect. It would be California, Texas, Florida,” said LePage.

The former governor, calling into the show from his home in Florida, also labeled the proposal “an insane process” and warned that “we’re gonna be forgotten people.”

Programming note... I have a couple appointments to go to tomorrow in the afternoon hours so I will be offline. We'll be back in action here on Monday.
