Rt @escapist Obama: "Listen, I'll take responsibility. I'm the president.". (Music to my lil ears)
In the shadow of our future, these (from @Potus's cabinet too) are even more heartbreaking to read.… #loligarchy
Not emotionally or ideologically prepared; can his Farewell rival my favorite Obama speech? #ThanksObama…
Four more years has me in tears.

also in terror.
thats the echo of the death of our democracy.
a decade ago I'd have not believed this.

But T-rump even less than a Black President, legal pot & marriage equalafhz
Actually, that echo is why T-rump got elected.
Who is responsible for Obama's Farewell echo?
"White people have to realize that the effects of slavery & Jim Crow didn't vanish in the 60's" that's my @POTUS #ThanksObama
I guess that was Obama's last ISIL. I'll even miss that. #ObamaFarewell
Hearing Obama quote our first President seems to acknowledge that he may be giving Democracy's eulogy. #FarewellObama
Crying with you Michelle & Malia; you are more composed than I can fathom & I am so sorry we failed you. #ObamaFarewell
What'll we do without Obama as our Encourager in Chief?

Right: time to do better, try harder, & above all else, be there for you. #solidarity #FarewellObama
Me: I didn't realize I'd feel so devastated.

@sonaar: well, that was optimistic

Me: lol..well I guess thats a good sign of something?
Missing Obama's "I'll take responsibility" lullaby more & more everyday (& every…://
So "45" blames Democrats (&/or Obama) for the failure of Trumpcare. Maybe he can't tell the difference between credit & blame?
I’m still struggling to believe we’ve devolved to here. This man is POTUS?

Sure I’m convinced that in the aftermath of this atrocious absurdity, we’ll wind up in a better more accountable future, but what did we do to wind up in this version of reality?
Its wish fulfillment! “The State of the Uniom” means we DID somehow end up in some alternate version of reality where everything is a letter off (more or less). #ThanksPutin…
how much time does my brain waste, still trying to confirm this version of reality, where this guy actually occupies the oval. #loligarchy
Beyond grateful to @benjaminwittes for this, but it makes me all the more nostalgic for our prior reality, where writing this is wasn’t necessary, let alone heroic & exceptionTbuP

@katiezavadski “F---ing Sith Lord,” “Horrific Leakers,” & “Berserkazoid Craziness”: The Mooch Recalls His Brief Shining Fortnight at the Center of US Politics, by @WilliamCohan… Wish he’d been asked about🇷🇺sanctions, RDIF & if he now supports what he opposed at #WEF17?
This is something, coming from a guy who missed the birth of his child—& had his lawyer demand a paternity test?

Does suing CNN & forcing a journo to resign for accurate reporting have permanent benefits?
World chess body has Swiss bank accounts frozen after (Putin-linked) president is accused of links to ISIS oil deals… After @Kasparov63 failed to have him removed, maybe Team Spectre decided enough was enough—& this was the only way to take back the org?

As per ⬆️, an excellent post by @katiezavadski, examining RDIF & Dmietiev! And a great thread follows. Hope to see Scaramucci, Thiel & Goldman Sachs looped in, just in time for Davos!
@katiezavadski So T-rump, Scaramucci & Mnuchin are going to #WEF2018. What about Schwarzman, Bonderman, Black & or WEF Young Global Leaders Dmietriev & Thiel? Or Milner? Is there an RDIF reunion scheduled?

Also, out of curiousity, any chess tourneys or events scheduled?
@katiezavadski Wonder if Scaramucci can get another reporter canned for accurately reporting on what he said in public at #WEF, like he did last year? Or were his legal threats to CNN enough to prevent anyone from taking the risk? Are the Mooch & Thiel now press-proof?

Thinking a lot lately about the VIPization of American culture & how its displaced the notion of equality. Curious about when this started..
I'd like to read a history of VIP sections:)When did they become mainstream/acceptable/legitimate? How are they justified to kids?Any recs?
By legitimizing VIP sections, the #loligarchy has commoditized inequality & aspiration & even my hypocrisy;) Can't we do & build better?

So, some dude in Bristol Farms just asked me if I was in #HatefulEight - his wife thought I was Jennifer Jason Leigh! #flattered #yearmade 💗
I clicked on this because I am vain, but loved this interview with Jennifer Jason Leigh…
just remembered: years ago, in Thailand, a couple said they thought they recognized me from the movie SingleWhiteFemale.Was I Bridget Fonda?

Why is O'Malley still running? There is no way a white man will be either Hillary's (Castro) or Bernie's (Warren?) choice for VP. #DemDebate
"You'll be very happy...I'll let you talk then" #shhhO'Malley
I still wouldn't recognize O'Malley if I saw him in the supermarket. #DemDebate

yes...which is why the OpenAI team's lack of diversity is so discomfiting....
Long @NewYorker profile on Bostrom & the state of AI; not a single woman (unnamed wife aside) mentioned or quoteILtp
If OpenAI is not committed to offering open access to their data, is the "Open" just sqLi4KSCoJ
