Quote of the Day

Anne Laurie:

"The Repubs created the Trump virus, a hardened iteration of every ugly racist misogynist xenophobic trope they’ve been doing their best to mainstream since at least 1965. And now the superbug might actually manage to destroy — or at least seriously weaken — its host incubator.

"Could not happen to a more deserving bunch of scheming thugs."

Be proud, #Republicans . This is the party you built:  racist, hateful, bigoted, and endlessly ignorant.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump's paid campaign staffers have declared on their personal social media accounts that Muslims are unfit to be U.S. citizens, ridiculed Mexican accents

No surprise here. Trump's message has been racist since the beginning, and there is no denying that his core constituency is composed of angry white racists.
There's mounting evidence that this is a real possibility -- and it could have untold long term consequences.

A recent article by former Presidential counsel John Dean is a long read, but worth the time. The facts are clear: Any claims that Hillary Clinton committed perjury are pure bullshit.

"Bottom line: The charges that Secretary Clinton lied to Congress are baseless. While there may be a few technical errors in her testimony, and there may be information that was discovered by the FBI after she testified, there is absolutely no evidence at all that she willfully and knowingly provided false information to Congress.

"Ironically, there are more false statements in the letter from chairmen Goodlatte and Chaffetz to the Department of Justice, which are clearly intentional, than the hours upon hours of testimony given by Secretary Clinton. If these men were ordinary citizens, they could be arrested for making false statements to law enforcement. They lied and played it for a one-day headline, and in doing so performed at the level of banana-republic legislators, if not lower. Sadly their actions are consistent with the thinking of the new Republican Party leader, Donald Trump, who would be proud of their effort to “Lock her up, Lock her up.”

"CARTWRIGHT: According to the manual, if you’re going to classify something, there has to be a header on the document? Right?

"COMEY: Correct.

"CARTWRIGHT: Was there a header on the three documents that we’ve discussed today that had the little c in the text someplace?

"COMEY: No. There were three e-mails, the c was in the body, in the text, but there was no header on the email or in the text.

"CARTWRIGHT: So if Secretary Clinton really were an expert about what’s classified and what’s not classified and we’re following the manual, the absence of a header would tell her immediately that those three documents were not classified. Am I correct in that?

"COMEY: That would be a reasonable inference."
Endless efforts by congressional Republicans to foil or foul up Hillary Clinton’s run for the presidency have hit a new low. The members of Congress involved cannot be sued for defamation, since they...

#VoterID  laws aren't about preventing "vote fraud" -- there simply isn't enough vote fraud to be worried about.

Voter ID laws are intended to do one thing: skew elections in favor of conservative candidates. How do we know this? Because #conservatives  themselves have told us -- over and over again.

No surprise here: Much of white America is composed of bigots.

"As part of a broad study of white working class politics, I solicited white Americans’ support for Donald Trump, but also for a hypothetical third party dedicated to “stopping mass immigration, providing American jobs to American workers, preserving America’s Christian heritage, and stopping the threat of Islam”—essentially the platform of the UK’s right-wing British National Party, adapted to the United States. How many white Americans do you think would consider voting for this type of protectionist, xenophobic party?

"65 percent."
Think he doesn’t represent anything besides himself? Turns out a whopping 65 percent of white Americans say they’d consider supporting a nativist third party.

Charles Blow is absolutely correct. The #Republican  Party is now officially the party of racism, misogyny, and bigotry.
And the Republican Party has chosen this "con man as its front man."

This is what the overtly racist campaign of #DonaldTrump  is enabling now. The bigots aren't even trying to hide what they are.
 
Here's an idea: Don't be a douchebag and you won't get called out on social media for it.
Instead of leaving a tip for Sadie Elledge, a couple eating at her Virginia restaurant left a message: We only tip citizens

The once-proud #Republican  Party is now led by a man who is an unabashed friend to white bigots.

So why won't you vote for him, +Ken Carlos? He's just like you. 
Donald Trump's presidential campaign has engaged in a disturbing courtship with the racist white nationalist movement that is unprecedented in recent American political history. That effort has taken on new life with Trump's hiring of Breitbart News chief Stephen Bannon. Bannon oversaw Breitbart News’ attempts to normalize and embra
