I think we may have found the perfect chant for the Women’s March!

    I’m going out on a limb here, but I think this might be an interesting day news-wise.
    I’m looking forward to see how the confirmation hearings are impacted going forward, especially Tillerson.

    If Putins goal is to get sanctions lifted so he can get back to his artic drilling or pipelining, and that Tillerson had/has interests or connections, well, it would certainly go a ways to answering the why Trump/useful tool question.

    A spokesman for the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, on Wednesday denied Russia has collected compromising information on Trump and dismissed news reports as a “complete fabrication and utter nonsense.” Dmitry Peskov insisted that the Kremlin “does not engage in collecting compromising material.”

    In other words, they got the goods on Trump.

    Not to be contrary (moi?), but this kind of news won’t upset the GOP base. I’ve criss-crossed my share of flyover country and the billboards for fireworks are only outweighed by the ones for adult entertainment and toys.

    But if there were boys involved, well, that’s a whole nother thing.

    Remember when Wiener had to resign in 2011 and Drumpf was obsessed with the story, repeatedly commenting about it on twitter.

    People thought it was odd as he had no relationship with the guy who represented a working class district in the outter borough and, at the time, he was very good terms with the Clintons.

    Now it makes sense: it was all self loathing projection.

    Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others.

    I have a request of the front-pagers: Since a lot of BJers last night were breathlessly talking about moving to Ireland, can we have a post about Denis O’Brien?

    See also this. Executive summary: There is no first amendment right of free speech in Ireland or UK, and media are afraid to publish stuff because of the fear of lawsuits. Members of the Irish Parliament (the Dail, pronounced Dawl) have a right of free speech in that parliament, but O’Brien is now suing the members of a parliamentary committee for divulging details of his insider business deals.

    For context about the corruption that remains undisclosed and unpunished, with the taxpayer picking up the bill to the tune of billions of dollars, read about Anglo Irish Bank

    If this blog were published in Ireland, this comment would be enough to have O’Brien go to the courts to have it shut down.

    And in a Senate hearing today, Ron Wyden (D-OR) pressed Comey to reveal whether the FBI was investigating Donald Trump’s ties to Russia, a tactic Wyden has used in the past to call attention to the existence of classified information without revealing it. The Guardian also reported Tuesday that the FBI had sought, and was at least temporarily denied, a warrant to monitor the communications of four Trump staffers in its investigation of their ties to Russia.

    Embarrassing answer. “Not aware”. What? He doesn’t remember? He wasn’t in a state of awareness that day?

    This is what it will be like for every single person who works for him. They’ll have to say ridiculous things to defend him every day and he’s not even loyal to them! 9 times out of 10 he then contradicts the sucker who made up the story to defend him, making that person out to be the liar. So, only terrible people will work for him, which just creates more problems, which they’ll all have to lie about.

    It was vital we know they were searching a laptop. This is less vital? He’s already blown any pretense of professionalism or objectivity in law enforcement. Picking and choosing when to apply the rules just makes it worse.

    So here’s our situation as far as law enforcement oversight of Donald Trump. We have the FBI, which is apparently ruled with an iron hand by the “NY Field Office” and certain House Republicans, and we have Sessions, a Trump loyalist who went along with Trump bellowing “lock her up” about his political opponent.

    If there is one possible silver lining to Trump, it’s that he will reduce the power of the presidency. Bush concentrated power after 9/11. I think Obama tried to make Congress more of a focus, but political forces on the right and the left, and the media, believed it was in their best interest to keep the focus on Obama. Trump will diminish the office so much that we might end up with a better balance of power at the end of it all. But it’s a long road from here to there.

    @Mustang Bobby:

    You left out gun stores.

    One of the more surreal travel moments I’ve ever had was passing a humongous cross by the side of I-75 in Tennessee and about two hundred yards after that passing a sign for an adult superstore. Like they couldn’t decide if they wanted to be saved or get their freak on in a serious way. Or maybe get their freak on but feel really guilty about it.

    sexual sleaze is a piss poor way to take this corrupt clown down.

    Hey, they nailed Al Capone for income tax evasion. I’ll take whatever I can get.

    Mr. Trump, I’m glad to see you finally scored some A-listers for urine-auguration. R. Kelly, Pee Wee Herman, and Urethra Franklin. Also, Van Halen has agreed to appear and perform “Urea Got Me Now”.

    @rachel: Yeah, when I saw “leak” and “movement” in quotes, I wondered if the Trump tweets were manufactured.

    @Another Scott: and the beauty of it is that the easily verifiable details are probably accurate: when Trump went to Moscow, he probably did stay in the best room in the best hotel, just as the POTUS would.

    @David 🍁Canadian Anchor Baby🍁 Koch: David Vitter was re-elected as senator after the DC madam investigation and, I think, would have continued to hold office as senator if he hadn’t run for governor. Family values republicans don’t care if one of their own is a hypocrite, and Louisiana has a well-known tolerance for politicians’ indiscretions. What got him was the nasty (and I do mean nasty) gubernatorial campaign he ran against other republicans. Vitter alienated so many people in his gubernatorial campaign that he probably figured that he couldn’t win re-election, though given Louisiana’s support for Trump, I’m not sure he was right that being a vindictive and mean adulterer with rumored fetishes would have been detrimental to his re-election chances this year.
