Mueller Day Open Thread

Bad mood guy

It’s PLEDGE DRIVE time again! WHTM is ad free and entirely dependent on folks like you for its continued existence. If you can afford it, please DONATE HERE NOW! Thanks!

It kind of feels like we’re entering the end game, huh? Mueller’s filings on Cohen and Manafort have dropped. And the Michael Cohen sentencing memo released by  the Southern District  of New York earlier today makes clear that Trump directed Cohen to commit a felony.

Reddit’s Trump fans praise Putin, mock talk of Trump treason — then attack Hillary for colluding with Russia?

It’s always “Lock Her Up” time in Reddit’s The_Donald

By David Futrelle

Never doubt the ability of Reddit’s The_Donald — the site’s biggest hangout for meme-loving, conspiracy pushing Trump stans  — to turn the worst debacles into wins (in their minds at least) for our illegitimate president.

Trump celebrates July 4th by tweeting an atrocity of a song celebrating … himself

America’s Narcissist in Chief

By David Futrelle

Donald Trump has tweeted many horrifying things since becoming our Fake President, but none perhaps as horrifying as the … thing … he tweeted out early this morning as a Fourth of July greeting to his subjects: video of a Trump-branded ersatz national anthem sung by an (almost) all-white mega-church choir.

The Leaks are Coming From Inside the Trump: Another Trump Open Thread Because JFC

This is fine

So I took a nap and when I woke up the WaPo had reported and other media outlets had confirmed that our Dear Leaker, sorry Leader, had leaked classified info to the Russians at that meeting last week, possibly because he wanted them to know that he’s a BIG BOY now with access to all sorts of secret President stuff! So have at it. Also, maybe I should stop napping. What if my nap CAUSED ALL THIS OH NO.

#ResistTrump by standing up against his refugee ban! UPDATED WITH PROTEST INFO

So Trump’s Muslim-ban-that-he-says-isn’t-a-Muslim-ban is already creating chaos at airports across the country, as refugees and others (including green card holders) who were literally in the air when Trump’s plan went into effect have been detained for, well, whatever they are being detained for, as Trump’s executive order was a bit vague. Because he likes signing things and getting his picture taken and doesn’t really give a shit about the details.

#ResistTrump by urging members of Congress to boycott the inauguration

John Lewis, Mississippi, 1963

UPDATE 1/18/17: As of midday today, the number of congresspeople who are skipping the inauguration has reached 58. See here for a running tally.

Last week, Civil Rights legend and 16-term Congressman John Lewis made a bombshell announcement, declaring in an interview with NBC that he does not think Donald Trump was legitimately elected president. Because of this, he went on to say, he will not be attending the inauguration this Friday.

#ResistTrump today by following Sarah Kendzior

Trump is right about one thing: Putin is smart. Smarter than Trump, in any case

In order to resist Trump, you need to be able to cut through the media clutter, seeking out information and analysis that doesn’t always make it onto cable news or the front page of the newspaper.
