  1. Trump in the hot seat today. See Josh Kovensky at Talking Points Memo for the play-by-play.

    Just look at the alleged pretext for the Stormy Daniels hush money scheme. The “pussy grabbing” Access Hollywood video had just come out in the waning days of the 2016 campaign, creating a crisis that he thought his campaign might not survive if his dalliance with a porn star was made public, too. Let that soak in.

    I know that you know what happened next. But have you taken time lately to marvel at the ham-handedness of it all?

    Trump’s solution, with the help of the tabloid National Enquirer, was a scheme to pay Daniels for her silence. He actually wrote her checks. Checks! The scheme continued after Trump won the election – while he was in the White House.

    For those of us who have endured Republican moralizing for our entire lives, the hush money scheme rips away all the pretensions. Right-wing Christians who have convinced themselves they are a minority under siege in their own country turned for their salvation to a man who is a product of pro wrestling, reality TV, and the mainstreaming of pornography. God bless ’em.

  2. On the heels of the Arizona decision, based on laws put in place by men appointed by Abraham Lincoln I watched the first six episodes of Manhunt  last week (great series). Over the weekend I went to the opening of Civil War (Gravy Seals get their moment) and this morning getting snippets of Merika’s current leader of the Party of Lincoln, our *ussy-grabber-in-Chief, begin his trial on porn-star-related offenses. 
     

    I really, really want to believe we can do better. 
     

     

    1. The reason?  'DJT' stock tumbles as Trump and many others file for the sale of their shares. The printing presses are still running at full speed.  

      In total, the S-1 is for the issuance of up to 21.5 million new common shares, and for the sale from time to time of up to 146.1 million shares held by stockholders.

      The resale of stock represents about 256% of the current public float, or shares currently available for the public to trade, and about 107% of the outstanding shares as of Jan. 31.

      Trump has filed to sell his entire holding, including the likely future award of 36 million additional shares.  But, poor guy has to wait until Sept. 25th before he can try to dump them on the market.

      The company's (DJT) S-1 filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission includes the potential sale of up to 114,750,000 shares held by the former president.

      Talk about hyperinflation — by September, a hundred shares will be lucky to buy a piece of bubble gum.

    1. Don't forget — he either has to have a bond or deposit real money with the NY Courts in order to appeal the existing judgment.  And yet … the details of the $175 million "bond" are coming out from a filing late last night, leading to a headline that

      Donald Trump Bond Documents Raise Eyebrows: 'Something's Fishy Here'

      Reacting to the bond court filings, Weissmann posted on X, formerly Twitter: "Something's fishy here. If Trump has $175M free and clear, why not just directly post it and not pay a fee for a surety bond? And the agreement does not give Knight a lien on the account as collateral and seems to afford Trump a two-day window to dissipate the account."

      Perhaps the independent monitor can clarify what's going on.
