Whachu Talkin' About, Donnie John?

There was so much craziness on display in Trump's ranting performance in Phoenix last Tuesday that he probably sent the people whose job it is to count his lies into heavy alcoholism. But one of them stood out for me, which was when he was foaming at the mouth about tearing down the statues of the Stalwart Defenders of Slavery and proclaiming that "they're trying to take away our culture!"

What? Trump is a New Yorker. His dad was a New Yorker. His grandfather was a Bavarian draft-dodger who married in Bavaria. His mother immigrated from Scotland. He has zero familial connections to the South or anyone who fought in the Civil War on any side. On any side.

Trump probably looks at the Old South and is envious that he missed out on the chance to own slaves. Because you know that if he could own slaves, Trump would be the archtypical brutal slave owner.

Meanwhile, after what happened yesterday, any Latino who supports Trump probably needs psychiatric help.

So much for rule of law. But some sheriffs and LE officials pushed back at trump's last dog whistle to jailers to beat up on prisoners more so maybe we'll see that again. Let's hope the screws remember that trump won't pardon them, and that expensive civil rights lawsuits are not liked by voters.

I don't think one and a half generations out of the old country qualifies as 'Muircan, but I may harbor a bias.

And another interesting twist in the Arpaio case, with it seeming that Donnie asked Sessions about dropping the charges before trial...

The only culture Trump has is bacterial.
