Trump once called the media with a fake name and said he was Donald Trump's publicist to the person, and talked about how much women loved Donald Trump. The guy is certifiable.

Saw this video earlier. What a freak show. I’m guessing Trump goes on a firing spree.

Some people are going to think it means Tillerson is gone, some people are going to think he's going to nuke North Korea. Anytime you can make an ambiguous nuclear war threat for tepid laughter...you gotta go for it!

Oh also, there's this. When you think about it, it's pretty surprising he waited 8 months to get to this:

First monthly jobs report with job decay since the Dubya administration.

Edit: September 2010 was the last jobs report with job decay.

This administration is like some sort of cartoonish nightmare. Everything they do is awful. Somehow they can just decide to let companies stop covering birth control pills. It's like they are all drunk and trying to do everything they possibly can to wreck society.

I really hope all those non-political people who can't be bothered and the turd sandwich vs. giant douche types realize that voting matters.

They're also just dropping protections for LGBT workers because reasons. How does that hold up?

Y'know, people who work for things like Slate, Vice (OK, not much of a shocker there) and Silicon Valley. Oh boy!

There's quite a bit to chew on, but, uhhh....wut???? Secretary of State = U.S. chief diplomat.

Tillerson wondered aloud whether the entire effort to improve relations with Iran wasn’t doomed by history. “We have more pounds, and our hair is gray,” he said. “Maybe we don’t have it in our capacity to change the nature of this relationship, because we are bound by it—maybe we leave it to the next generation to try.” He thought for a moment. “I don’t know. I’m not a diplomat.”

He’s a hero because he was shot. I like people who weren’t shot.
