Everything about this Presidency is just batshit insane.
WASHINGTON – They never thought they’d be piecing the presidency together.
Solomon Lartey and Reginald Young Jr. admitted to Politico their Trump administration jobs were to use Scotch tape to repair papers that President Trump destroyed.
The trained records management analysts made more than $60,000 a year to preserve presidential documents for the National Archives before they were abruptly fired earlier this year.
But the career professionals say their jobs changed when Trump came to the White House because the new commander-in-chief routinely rips up documents that need to be preserved.
Under the Presidential Records Act, the White House must hold onto presidential records for safekeeping and historical purposes.

I’m sure Fox News probably did a whole thing on how this mean hollywood elite said a nasty word about our dear leader while Trump is busy tearing immigrant families apart (literally) and pissing on our allies as he dreams about putting lotion on Putin. So Fuck Trump.
The Crown intro. Yeah, it’s kind of a Game of Thrones ripoff with the animated sequence…. But that music though. Damn. And just found out it was by Hans Zimmer. Makes sense. It’s just fantastic.

This one hurts. The thing I always appreciated about Bourdain’s shows, was that at first glance they seemed to be just another travel/food show, and then you watched it. It was bait and switch. The food always took a back seat to the people and cultures. He was always respectful to whatever country he was visiting and seemed to grow personally as he explored more of this crazy world which all of us share.
It meant a great deal to me when Bourdain wrote about this country's love of Mexican food, but not Mexico and its people: https://t.co/I7pz8qEe4r

Last thing: nobody did a better job than Bourdain of showing that the world is made up of *people* and not cartoon Others. And once you internalize that, it becomes a million times harder to stomach this stupid, destructive, tribal, political thing we keep doing to each other.

I ate with Bourdain. Probably 2004. He was big even then but he took time to sit with me in Chinatown to talk “weird” food for a magazine piece I was writing. He taught me that our “weird” is the world’s delicious. We ate chicken feet. The afternoon vibrated with life. RIP

Thing about #Bourdain was he didn't look down on foreign places he visited & their ‘quaintness/backwardness/insert-usual-derogatory adjective.' He dived in, hungry to experience. His wasn’t the Orientalist gaze. He saw humanity (& food) everywhere, and connected with it. RIP

"I think I'm very well prepared," President Trump says of the upcoming North Korea summit. "I don't think I have to prepare very much. It's about attitude. It's about willingness to get things done" https://t.co/LUWVKoyfzG

I just can’t get over how anybody in their right mind would ever support this idiot.
