8 More Days and Scandinavian Crime Dramas – What I Learned Today – Tuesday, January 12

Eight more days to go before Trump is out of office. I’m so exhausted from the amount of attention he requires. Even in the waning days of his presidency, during a time when most presidents are preparing to leave, wrapping up their terms, he still needs to make everything about himself by sending his followers to murder his vice president and any Democrats they could find.  Not having to wonder what kind of disastrous fuck up your president has created every other day is going to be such a mental break. Not that I expect Trump to just slip off to a golf club and never be heard from again.  He’ll try to stir up shit. But without the power of being in the Oval Office, and without his Twitter megaphone, he won’t be as effective.

But he can still cause a lot of damage in the next week. Hopefully what happened at the Capitol has scared off most of his enablers. He has psychologically abused this country now for four years with his gaslighting and tantrums. Next Wednesday can’t come quick enough.

The Capitol insurrection also was an opportunity for the anti-maskers in the GOP to infect their colleagues:


Democratic Rep. Lou Correa is yelled at by members of Trump’s cult in Dulles airport.  Several of them are also not wearing masks:


I don’t know where to begin with this:


Every single Scandinavian crime drama:


Things fitting perfectly in other things is the oddly satisfying video of the year so far.
