In other news, board members are reportedly going to kick Jim DeMint out as president of the Heritage Foundation. Apparently he's just a little too batshit. Who could have predicted?

Meanwhile, congressional Republicans are considering a measure that would allow coal companies to offload the cost of covering healthcare for miners onto federal taxpayers. It's a bailout.

Finally, Alex Jones lost his child custody case last night. I figure the videos of Jones randomly stripping his clothes off were probably a major factor.

Here are some other stories I didn't get to this week:

The New Yorker did a deep dive on Steve Bannon's failed Hollywood career. This is a long read, but you get the sense Bannon's current ideology is derived from personal anger at the people (hollywood liberals) who rejected him.

Bloomberg has a story on how Miami could collapse before climate change-driven sea level rise claims a single building. Banks may stop issuing 30-year mortgages because there will be no coastline in 30 years.

The FBI is reportedly investigating Burlington College and Jane Sanders (Saint Bernie's wife) for possible fraud. The investigation has been ongoing since last year.

Goldman Sachs is ditching Britain and relocating all of their staff to the EU because of the so-called Brexit. London is expected to lose up to 30,000 financial services jobs because of the Brexit.

The Pentagon is investigating whether two Army Rangers killed during a raid in Afghanistan last night were killed by friendly fire.

Now, here's The Simpsons on Trump's first 100 days.

  • Financial services is a major part of London’s economy. Britain will feel that.

      Morbid. But that is the treatment Jones richly deserves.

    “Bannon’s current ideology is derived from personal anger at the people (hollywood liberals) who rejected him.”
    Same reason why he hates women.

      Wasn’t Hitler supposedly upset because people rejected his art? Man, some people really need to learn how to take rejection.

        And if Fidel Castro had made onto the NY Yankees roster…

      • He was. But World War I played a big role too.
