The Beast is apparently holding a victory lap/press conference right now that is spiraling into new heights of craziness. No president has ever been treated so badly, not even those who were shot in the face. Trump has covered the following topics: Comey, Hillary Clinton, Strzok and Page, Pelosi, Jim Jordan’s ears, Scalise’s gunshot wound and his wife’s evidently remarkable concern about the possibility of his death, etc.
I’m not watching, not even clips, but people on Twitter are astonished that the networks aren’t cutting away. I’ll give you two reasons why not: 1) cha 2) ching.
Tom Perez has called on the Iowa Democratic Party to recanvass caucus results:
Enough is enough. In light of the problems that have emerged in the implementation of the delegate selection plan and in order to assure public confidence in the results, I am calling on the Iowa Democratic Party to immediately begin a recanvass.

Meanwhile, Sanders declared victory on Twitter. Jesus, what a day. How about some peaceful birds?

We’re supposed to get a significant wind, rain and lightning event, aka, a storm, later. Maybe we’ll get lucky and be cut off from civilization for several days. We’d be fine. Better, maybe!
