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.


There’s really something about Trump’s personality that is adored by the worst fucking people in the world:


Susan Collins is really not that bright is she?


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.


 

President Impeach and the Capitol Insurrection Fallout – What I Learned Today – Monday, January 11

Trump is going to go down as the first president in history to be impeached twice.  And he managed to do it within just one term.  And to think that he has done much more impeachable acts that Congress just didn’t bother to follow up on:


A message from Arnold:


I feel like Trump will be more pissed about this than being impeached twice:


So it turns out that the people who stormed the Capitol were overwhelmingly Trump supporters. Who would have guessed that?


Melania has put out a statement about the coup and after giving condolences to the insurrectionists, then also gives her condolence for the Capitiol officer who was killed and then immediately casts herself as the victim:

During the riot, Melania was busy doing a photoshoot with rugs and declined to put out a statement about what was happening. Getting the lighting right on the rugs was the priority.


Parler (I downloaded it the other night in case Trump popped up on there and it is a terrible platform.  It is clunky, not very intuitive, and I’m not going to even discuss the content) has lost their hosting and is currently offline:



 

 

What I Learned Today – Friday, January 8

Still super busy and this week really doesn’t want to end. Just a few things that have happened over the last few hours:

Good!


Good!


GOOOD!!!!!!


Good, we didn’t want you there anyway:


Not good!  Death rate passed 4,000 for the first time:


Trump’s admin is certainly ending with the country in tatters.  Maybe it wasn’t a good idea to elect a game show host as president.


Let’s end the week on a good busking performance:

What I Learned Today – Wednesday, January 7

I’m a bit busy today since I wasn’t very productive yesterday.  I’m going to assume that I wasn’t the only one. I’ll try to update this post as I can today.

Biden’s Presidency has now been confirmed by Congress.


Facebook has suspended Trump’s account indefinitely:


Rudy tried getting Trumpian Tuberville to slow down yesterday’s electoral vote counting but got the number wrong and left the message on a different Senator’s voicemail who promptly made it public:


Rats, ships, you get the idea:


We are just about at 4,000 daily deaths due to Covid in the US now:


For anybody who is hoping that Congress will do something to stop Trump’s insurrections:
