Like a lot of people, I was thrown by Seth Abramson's twitter yesterday:

@SethAbramson
PLEASE RT if you want to congratulate Bob Mueller on one of the most well-run first years of a complex federal investigation in recent memory. A case this big would normally take over 5 years, and Mueller is on pace to do it in under 3. America owes his team a debt of gratitude.


...three? So, just in time for Trump's second term?

Point taken. The fallout from the Iran Deal and the immediate heightened tensions.

Yeah, what exactly are you referencing here, Sabin? It’s impossible to know, as Bog states.

This country is so fucked it's borderline impossible to pinpoint via post timestamp which Trumpian debacle you are referencing. The mere fact it has come to this is (hyperbolically?) epic scale. I'm certain in the past if I had merely googled-- "Obama/Bush news for WEEK of/MONTH of (insert date)" I'd have easily pinpointed the referenced item .

Trump news for May 10th at 8pm search results led me still not knowing which didn't take long...haha

It's gotten to the point where I dread turning on the news. Not only is all of it bad, it's dominated by the most vile human beings on the planet. If there's anyone I can't stand more than Trump, it's Giuliani. Now the pundits are all over CNN and MSNBC wondering what happened to "America's mayor", which is something he never was although that was the affectionate reference they gave him after 9/11. He was always a two-bit hustler just like his buddy, Trump and all the other creeps they surround themselves with.

I know eventually the worm will turn and we will be over this national nightmare, but in the meantime it feels like being straight-jacketed in an insane asylum where the biggest nuts are the ones running the place.

The new president of the NRA is Oliver Fucking North. Well, he certainly knows about arming people.

The only thing that gives me hope about the future of this country is that the right wing is such an embarrassing dumpster fire of human failure that MAYBE it just won't survive. The odds on that are shitty, but they are better than they've ever been.

Paul Ryan has forced out the House Chaplain, a Catholic priest who has held the position for seven years, for saying in a prayer that "lawmakers should be fair to all Americans" seen as siding with the Democrats, and for inviting a Muslim to offer a prayer before the chambers.

The first sentence of Bill Cosby's wikipedia page now reads: "William Henry Cosby Jr. is an American stand-up comedian, actor, musician, and convicted rapist."

So much depressing information in this thread it's time for a chuckle:
