What Fresh Hell? for December 4-5, 2017: 12 landmarks to watch for from your handbasket

7 Ways to Use Twitter During Instead of Attending a Church Service


After an especially detailed set  of Tweets in lieu of Church Attendance Sunday, the *resident was up and at it early yesterday morning:


*****




La loi, c'est moi:

The "President cannot obstruct justice because he is the chief law enforcement officer under [the Constitution's Article II] and has every right to express his view of any case," [Trump attorney and tweetghost] Dowd claims.


*****


After Tillerson’s Moron said he declined being Time’s 2017 Person of the Year because he would have to give an interview, today Time announced MOTUS made the shortlist in spite of his delusional truculence.


The other nine will just make him angry or jealous.


*****


Westboro Baptist Church, where the family gene pool has largely dried up since Fred Phelps died, will picket the *resident’s adultery Monday. No one cares, and no evangelical/Republican Christianist will denounce Westboro. After Trump waddled into the Pottage Bar and shouted, “A mess for everybody!”, it’s been all over but the preening for America’s former premier moralists.


*****


North Carolina’s two corporate senators are threading the needle again, trying to please both donors and mouth-breathers. The News Hour asked them for comment about the MOTUS’ anti-Muslim tweets:


RICHARD BURR, R-N.C.  “You need to talk to the president. I don’t comment on his tweets. You guys are the only ones that are consumed with his tweets.” NewsHour: Have you seen the tweets? “You keep writing articles about them so I don’t think he’s going to stop as long as you keep doing that.”


THOM TILLIS, R-N.C. Has not seen the tweets.


*****


A new study says base-pandering candidates do more harm than good, as they gin up the opposition’s turnout more than their own. Alabama will, of course, disprove this next week.


*****


The Winklevoss twins can finally top nattering on about Facebook. They are the first bitcoin billionaires.


*****




*****


Amazon has delayed its Q2 decision, presumably to winnow down and bid up the bribes. But if Charlotte wins, will taxpayers finally be told the butcher’s bill?


*****
That was then, says the Republican National Committee, its staffers booking redeyes to Alabama.


*****

Christine Keeler, who back in the day would've been down with being a Trump-Putin go-between in the grabbiest imaginable ways, has died at the age of 75.

She survived the Tory governments of Harold Macmillan and Alec Douglas-Home by 53 years.
