Attention U.S. Secret Service: There is a Madman Loose in the White House


These tweets by Donald J. Trump speak for themselves:

Hypocrisy Exhibit A:


Hypocrisy Exhibit B:


Hypocrisy Exhibit C:


Hypocrisy Exhibit D:


Side Note:  Just curious about Twitter and its terms and conditions:  Isn’t there some rule about threatening to kill people on Twitter?  What about when someone threatens to kill 81 million people?





  1. Quoting Matt Yglesias on Twitter, “From Iran’s perspective … they’re facing an anti-democratic regime deeply influenced by extremist clerics, armed to the teeth with nuclear weapons, abrogating international agreements left and right, with the basic sanity and rationality of the Supreme Leader widely questioned.” I have no love for the leadership of Iran, they continue to do a bunch of horrible things, but our current leadership is more reckless and less competent.

    Clearly, John Bolton is trying to provoke an incident with Iran, and then is counting on Trump’s pathological unwillingness to admit a mistake or show any sign of weakness as well has his instincts to always strike back at any perceived slight to get us into the war he has always wanted. This is frightening and inhumane, and illustrates why our current President is dangerously unqualified to hold office.

  2. This is such a great post. I come here for your fascinating personal stories but end up coming back for your personal take on politics which oddly mirrors mine almost exactly.

    Thinking of personal stories when will you do your part 4, last week of Lyft?
