Nice. I still think it was ultimately Cheney pulling the strings, but this is a well-done, and needed, reality check.

At the same time, it's also a sad reminder of just how awful Trump is. I mean, all of the above, PLUS complete lack of statesmanship and an out-of-control ego? The mind boggles.

Indeed. I'm all for criticizing Bush's administration but you have to admit, at least they were professional fascists.

Yeah, saw that this morning.

I've gotta hand it to CNN's makeup person. You can hardly see Conway's scales at all.

He's good.

I don't know. The mental gymnastics both sides have to go through in interviews like that - it's about as challenging as it gets. It's relentless! any of us would be confused and exhausted after 2 minutes.

That was tiring but par for the course for Presidential spokespeople. Kelly Anne can't admit her boss is psycho and Chris is aching to get the conversation back to Russian hacking.
I love you.

I don't know that I'd feel confused or exhausted, but it would definitely be difficult to resist asking her if she believes humans have a soul and, if so, what the fuck happened to hers.

Says the man who recently got "confused and exhausted" by the mental gymnastics that resulted when a particularly relentless fellow poster challenged him by passing him a piece of paper with PTO written on both sides.

'Bernie Sanders in Trump Country' on MSNBC right now. Should be good.

Don't worry folks, our Enda will take him to one side and tell him to cop himself on. It'll be grand.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the intricacies of Irish politics (i.e pretty much everyone bar Markus, RoryBoy and myself) Enda is Enda Kenny, our beleaguered Taioseach (PM). Eyebrow-deep in scandal and with almost everyone baying for his blood, he is very probably the only man in the world eager to meet Donald Trump.
