... what makes this even more infuriating is we all know Christine told the truth and pathological liar Brett Kavanaugh is likely to face the same consequences for his behavior as Trump will face for his massive fraud:
No consequences... /4
... I hate to keep shitting on the NYT but where the fuck was this fraud reporting before the election? Nobody is ever going to convince me they couldn't have dug this up if they weren't so busy enabling Trump with sycophantic-wolves-in sheeps-clothing like Haberman... /5

In 2016, UK gov. conducted a poll to name their new Royal Navy research vessel.
Public, in their wisdom, nominated 'Boaty McBoatface' as name.
UK Gov realized this = bad & instead named it the RRS Sir David Attenborough.
Trump might as well have nominated Rapey McRapeface /1
I can't keep up with the amount of accusers but I believe all of them.
At this point, any sane leader would recognize this = bad & change their decision.
Trump's narcissism won't allow him to do it.
I suspect Kavanaugh's narcissism won't allow him to withdraw either. /2

We're now seeing real consequences of the loop which goes from Trump ---> NYT toadies ---> Trump.
Trump gets to cite the NYT as a reason for firing Rosenstein when the source for that story was likely Trump himself.
Don't worry though, at least Maggie Haberman and Michael Schmidt will get good book deals out of it while the world burns.
It's all these parasitic, duplicitous, vultures care about.

Last Christmas, Michael Schmidt got an exclusive interview with Trump.
Today he shared the byline on that monstrosity.
Just a reminder this was b/c he was invited to lunch by Trump's biggest supporter.
Below, Trump feels Haberman, Schmidt, Baker "treat him fairly".
What does Trump actually mean by "treated him fairly"?
Anyone paying attention knows Trump views the world in binary terms.
Winners or losers.
Friend or enemy.
"Treated me fairly" = "Made me look good" in Trump language. /2

It occurred to me that Republicans are making life hell for Christine Blasey Ford for the exact same reason they ripped innocent children from their mothers at the border.
They want to weaponize cruelty as a deterrent.
It takes courage for a woman to pack up a few belongings and flee with their child, to make a journey to apply for asylum,
A similar level of courage to stand up and say "I am a victim".
They want to make it so hard to do it that people will choose to suffer in silence instead.

I've a couple of thoughts on yet another mass shooting.
The common denominator in (almost) all of these tragedies is that the perpetrators are males who can't get what they want and lash out with devastating consequences... /1
... a lot of people will focus on toxic masculinity and what is going on with (mostly young) men in America for this pattern to keep repeating, week after week, state after state.
However, I feel that's completely misguided in so many ways... /2

In 2016 the US mainstream media were so determined to *appear* "fair and balanced" they resorted to character assassination of Hillary Clinton to create an illusion they were just as hard on Trump.... /1
... but because Hillary was objectively a decent & intelligent human being and in no way comparable to the racist, misogynist, sexist, imbecile Trump, they had to scrape the barrel to create this illusion, focusing on spurious faux-scandals.... /2

Anyone who follows me will see I am constantly amazed by the corruption and criminality of the Trump regime. I thought I'd write a quick thread on one of the biggest corruption/political scandals in my country in recent years for comparison purposes. /1
Here in Ireland we have a thing called "The Penalty Points System" for drivers. If you are caught doing 42mph in a 30mph zone, you get 3 points on your driving license. Rack up 12 points in a 3-year-period and you get a 6-month driving ban. /2

Where are people getting the impression she is an access journalist and Trump shill?
Let's take a closer look.
The year is 2011. In February, Maggie Haberman pens an article in Politico "The Donald reins in Roger Stone", quoting from an interview with Donald himself who phoned Maggie. The article was ostensibly floating a Presidential bid.
The 2 British men who are leading the rescue operation are John Volanthen and Rick Stanton. They are universally regarded as the best cave divers in the world.
They were the ones who found the boys & are now leading the rescue mission.
They worked tirelessly for days on no sleep to secure guidelines across the 3 miles of treacherous flooded cave. They then found the boys and reassured them they would rescue them.
This world can be a dark & scary place outside caves. People like John & Rick are the light.
