_"You're going straight to hell, @realDonaldTrump. No long lines for you.
Someone will say, 'Right this way, sir.' They'll clear a path."_
-- Lin-Manuel Miranda

I took a 3D model I'd done of Donald J. Trump, gave him his 'I'm a Special Boy!' smile, and put him where he belongs: in Hell.

I am not a fan of the overgrown toddler in the Oval Office, but this is shitty reporting.

“I just want to put into context a conversation that I had with a very prominent Republican today who literally was saying that they imagine Gen. Kelly and Sec. Mattis had conversations about if Trump lunged for the nuclear football, what would they do? Would they tackle him? Literally, physically restrain him from putting the country at sort of perilous risk, and that’s the kind of situation we’re in.”

So the reporter is telling us about a 'senior Republican' (meaningless) who imagines that Mattis and Kelly have had a conversation about what to do. All of the options are part of this theoretical conversation.

Furthermore, it completely misrepresents the role of the 'nuclear football,' which contains:

1. A communications link to the NMCC (National Military Command Center).
2. A binder containing strategic options available to the president.
3. A binder containing the locations of secure facilities for the president to operate from in the absence of being aboard NEACP (National Emergency Airborne Command Post).
4. Instructions for activating the Emergency Alert System.
5. A card containing several sets of numbers, a means of authenticating the president's identity.

There's no magic button that launches nuclear weapons. There are only the tools to enable the NCA (National Command Authority) to issue such orders in an efficient manner. There are no provisions for ascertaining whether or not NCA is actually sane, and the role of SecDef is to confirm the president's identity. They can not countermand or veto the launch order.

Again, MSNBC is reporting a 'Senior Republican's' imagined conversation between General Mattis and General Kelly.

"To the people that are trying to politicize this tragedy, I would say this. There are monsters like this monster out there every day. There are menaces out there every day. People want to be able to protect themselves. That's why they support this freedom. All the elites that have been speaking out this past week, they all want to protect themselves," claimed LaPierre.

Stephen Paddock was not defending his freedoms, and no one among the dead or injured in Las Vegas went popping off shots to protect themselves. They got mowed down because 'monsters' like you make it possible.

Dead kids, dead moviegoers, dead country music fans, dead churchgoers, dead clinic workers, dead office workers, dead college students, dead high school students, dead police officers, injured legislators ... that's not the 'price of freedom,' it's a body count.

Proceeds from sale of the song go to hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

"A man with your responsibilities reading about the end of the world. And what's this? 'I am become Death, the Destroyer of Worlds.'"
-- Political Officer Ivan Putin, The Hunt for Red October

Throughout his term, Trump has evinced a fascination with America's nuclear arsenal, including an ill-considered tweet on August 9, 2017:

My first order as President was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal. It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before....

August 9 being the 72nd Anniversary of the bombing of Nagasaki, Japan, and part of Trump's week-long assurance that he'd unleash 'fire and fury' upon North Korea.

This is not a video game, Mr. Trump.

But, just as he seems to have a vocabulary limited to third-grade superlatives and cliches like, 'Believe me,' and 'I can tell you that,' Trump also has a reputation for making statements that are ill-considered at best, particularly in the realm of diplomatic relations.

Trump's 'calm before the storm,' remark, paired with his usual, 'you'll find out' ('wait and see,' 'who knows?') is another sign that the man in the Oval Office isn't of sound mind.

When Donald Trump's visit to Puerto Rico was announced, I wondered what people were expecting to see. This was the guy, after all, who autographed a shelter wall, joked about the size of a field first-aid kit, told responders to 'have a great time,' and bragged about crowd size.

But, here it is again. "Have a great time."

Tossing paper towels to residents like he's a hot dog vendor at the ballpark.

There is no bottom here, folks. No line of propriety or decency. He will continue to define new lows.

The story is not that Tillerson allegedly called Donald Trump a 'fucking moron,' nor that Tillerson 'isn't resigning.'

We've seen this before. Members of the Trump Administration affirm their loyalty to the Pustule-in-Chief, and how they're not going anywhere ... and, suddenly, there's a six-inch dagger parked between their political shoulder blades.

Priebus, Bannon, Spicer, Price, et al.

Here's what we do know. If Tillerson is shown the door, his replacement will be even more clueless and incompetent, Congress will nod sagely and confirm them, and the Decline and Fall of America will have another chapter added.

For those of you following the news of the mass shooting in Las Vegas, here's the location.

It's about 1,000 feet from the hotel to where the main stage of the Route 91 Festival is.

I know people claimed to hear police chatter on the radio saying a suspect was down on the 32nd Floor of the hotel, but that doesn't mean this is where they were shooting from. Mandalay Bay doesn't have any windows that open, because they're coated with gold leaf (hence, why the building has a golden hue).

I expect more details to become clear as the story develops, and perhaps some details to change.

Hurricane Maria made landfall on the morning of September 20.

On September 22, Donald Trump made inflammatory statements about NFL players who had or were continuing to kneel during the National Anthem. He would continue rage-tweeting about this over the weekend and well into the week.

Five days later, we learned that the Guajataca Dam had been damaged. 70,000 nearby residents were evacuated. Governor Pedro Rossello called upon Congress to approve an emergency aid bill. Trump, in discussing aid, implied that it would be contingent on Puerto Rico's 'massive debt.'

Six days later, Carmen Yulin Cruz, the Mayor of San Juan, made an impassioned plea for assistance. Supplies were sitting on the docks, because the infrastructure and support to distribute them wasn't there.

Trump tweeted that Cruz had praised FEMA, and that there was 'much food/water there/on the way.' He continued to tweet about praise and effusive thanks from other Puerto Rican officials. He also pointed out that Puerto Rico was an island in the middle of a big ocean. "And it's a big ocean, a very big ocean." (Puerto Rico is in the Caribbean Sea, about a two-hour flight away from Miami.)

On Thursday, eight days after landfall, Acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke styled the Trump Administration's relief efforts as a 'good news story,' to which Mayor Cruz countered, "This is a people-are-dying story. This is a life-or-death story. This is a there’s-a truckload-of-stuff-that-cannot-be-taken-to-people story. This a story of a devastation that continues to worsen because people are not getting food and water."

On Friday, Trump reminded us that Puerto Rico is, "... an island surrounded by water, big water, ocean water."

It is now ten days later. Trump is at one of his resorts in New Jersey, golfing. He points out that he will be spending a whole hour speaking to FEMA Director Brock Long.

And he had nothing kind to say about Mayor Cruz - whom he blamed for 'not getting her people to help' and that 'the Democrats' have told her 'to be nasty to Trump' while insisting relief workers are doing a 'fantastic job.'

Trump is presently scheduled to travel to Puerto Rico on Tuesday.

Mr. Trump, this is how you respond to racists.

You don't laud them as 'very fine people.' You don't blame 'both sides.' You don't ignore injustice and hide behind the flag.

You step up, and you let the racists know they aren't welcome.

Still want to crow about how you've had more military training than most people in the military?
