Tyler Rogoway at The Drive tells you, in excruciating detail, why the Trump missile strike on the Syrian airbase was "a sham." Of course you can't discount the possibility the Trump Administration knew their attack would restrict their military options in the region -- after all, that would increase the possibility of a future military reversal, meaning more opportunities to rally the American people to a President they don't otherwise like. I mean, you know Republicans feed off failure the way dung beetles feed off, well, you know.
Senior editors at Breitbart News have asked writers to lay off Mr. Trump's advisor/son-in-law, Jared Kushner. Because that's what you do when you work for a big-league news outfit: kowtow to the President. And that's what you do when you work for a big-league White House advisor: complain about news coverage. And remember that one of Breitbart's biggest problems with Mr. Kushner is his Membership in the Tribe. Seriously, this is all a big pile of suck.
No less an authority than Goldman Sachs estimates that the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. "Obamacare") has created 500,000 health care jobs over four years. More people having more health insurance means more people getting more health care means more jobs to meet the increased demand, as you know if you
studied economics employed common sense. Anyway, think of how many jobs we could create if we could get everyone covered under a Medicare-for-all, single-payer program!
President Trump apparently will not visit Pope Francis I during next month's G7 Summit in Italy. Because TEH POPEZ SAIDZ THE MEAN THINGZ ABOUTZ MEZ!!!!! So, there's probably on truth to the rumor that he won't visit because he fears getting deported from Vatican City, or the rumor that he fears he would the Pope's presence would cause him to spontaneously combust.
Finally, we might do better assuming that Mr. Spicer intended his "Hitler didn't use chemical weapons" flatugasm on Tuesday, because it sure sounds like dog-whistle politics to me. I mean, I'm not going to check, but I would not be surprised to find more than a few right-wing message boards aflame with TEH SPICER IZ TEH ONE OF UZ!!! declarations, since "Hitler didn't use chemical weapons" is kind of a way of denying the Holocaust. I wouldn't blame you if you applied Occam's Razor and chalked Mr. Spicer's flatugasm up to mere stupidity, either, but I would then feel compelled to remind you: stupid is evil.
