Meanwhile trump is running his mouth off again.
Courtesy of Charles. J. Pierce:
This is madness. Worse, this is madness presented as leadership to the people who may have to react and respond to actual acts of actual terrorism, and who have bigger problems with which to cope than whether or not the C-in-C’s elevator goes all the way to the penthouse. I have absolutely no idea what would go through the mind of a rookie airman who hears this fantastical drivel and wonders how he has come under the command of a guy who seems to be channeling Alex Jones through the fillings in his teeth. It’s every day now, and I can’t even imagine what a critical mass of this craziness would look like, and I’m pretty sure I don’t want to know.
More in a while.
