    The faux inauguration is past, and Trymp still is a loser.  But he still stinks.

    Great God Almighty, Trump still stinks.

    Rep. Zoe Lofgren has published an exhaustive overview of the social media accounts of Congressmembers from  2020 to 2021.

    Lauren Boebert’s feed covers pages 507-577 (from pdf download), and reveals that she is a true believer in the Big Lie of  election fraud, and, evidently, in Donald Trump’s Divine Right to rule. ( see 12/14/20 tweet) . 
    She also clearly knew about the planned riot on January 6, 2021, and encouraged it, in order to “pressure” legislators to vote against certifying the election results. We don’t see her Parler tweets here, nor individual text messages to constituents, but the FBI is reviewing those. Doug Lamborn’s one tweet on page 578 pales by comparison.

    Of course they are…

    Senate Republicans are telegraphing that they’ll use a series of misleading, race-baiting attacks to try to block Joe Biden’s nominees to the government’s most powerful civil rights positions from getting confirmed.

    Of note, Conferedeate flags inside the capitol building during an insurrection were no problem at all. 

    Republicans Are Using Race-Baiting Attacks to Block Biden’s Civil Rights Picks

    Vanita Gupta and Kristen Clarke have faced increasingly nasty attacks as the GOP seeks to paint them as cop-hating, anti-Semitic reverse racists.
