My Daily Quarrel with Life: Wednesday, December 19, 2018: Intelligencer

Intelligencer: A great site for news updates. Check it out.

Just one great example: Trump's 7 Mutually Exclusive Arguments For His Own Innocence.

He didn't even know about the payments to Stormy Daniels, but he directed those payments believing they were perfectly legal, and Michael Cohen was just a low-level PR guy that Trump never interacted with, even though there's a tape showing Trump was in the room with Cohen and the yellow-rag magazine arranging those payments to Stormy Daniels.

And so on. Read the article.

Or don't read it, if you're sick of all these lies and all this posturing.

I myself, I keep reading these things, and I keep watching MSNBC (even Rachel Maddow, at times, and for a maximum of five minutes at a time, even though she continues to act like she thinks her viewers are morons who need to hear each of her points a minimum of three times), because I think it's important to know what's going on. Because when the apocalyptic fall of the American presidency comes, sometime next year, I want to be ready for it.

Another interesting thing you can learn from checking the Intelligencer blog every once in awhile: what time the so-called president shows up for work each day, which they figure out by noting what time a U.S. Marine is stationed outside the West Wing doors.

(On Friday, the 14th, when I wrote this, the so-called president showed up for work just before noon. Because, you know, presidential time, i.e., watching Fox News, is more important than pretending to be an actual president. Oh, wait, maybe the less time he spends in the West Wing, the better? Maybe so? Maybe it's like when Congress is on recess? Less damage?)

I'm amazed that you can listen to Rachel Maddow for as LONG as 5 minutes. The repetition drives me bats.
