I know it's not fair of me to say given most of you actually live in this ridiculous country, but you'd be surprised how much healthier it is just tuning most of it out. [Social] media's the toxin as much as it is this cycle's government.

I'd wager this thread is supremely unhealthy as well, but I'll get dumped on for that.

yeah. i feel like there's some weird thing happening where by devoting every fucking second of airtime to every little thing that trump does people are enabling him in some way. i mean, i don't think we should turn a blind eye to trump's bullshit but it's just getting ridiculous at this point. i'm more tired of the constant outrage than i am of trump right now. obviously, it would be great if trump would somehow be ousted so all this would stop finally but that doesn't seem likely so it all amounts to a bunch of noise and more and more and more noise. i dunno, i've avoided this thread and a lot of the news for awhile and i'm getting sucked back in slowly and i feel much shittier when i'm immersed in this depressing trump feedback loop. we know who this guy is at this point and how shitty he is. what is there left to say?


Well for starters we could say

I can avoid thinking about politics and be fine and probably healthier for a while too but it’s because I am a cisgendered white heterosexual culturally christian white man

i mean there's a difference between engaging in local politics, pushing progressiveness into policy how you're able, and ruminating on awful social media, op-eds and news commentary day in, day out and just stressing yourself out without anything substantial to gain from it. arguably the former is more difficult to do if you've ruined your motivation by engaging in the latter.

This article is as bad or worse than you'd assume, this isn't a case of reporters getting screwed by the editor or social media intern here. Really terrible stuff.

fuck slate and jacob weisberg forever

Jacob Weisberg, editor-in-chief of the Slate Group, said on Friday that in a series of interviews with Ms. Clifford in August and October 2016, she told him she had an affair with Mr. Trump after meeting him at a 2006 celebrity golf tournament. She told him that Michael D. Cohen, a lawyer for Mr. Trump, had agreed during the presidential campaign to pay her the $130,000 if she kept the relationship secret, Mr. Weisberg said, adding that Ms. Clifford had told him she was tempted to go public because the lawyer was late in making the payment and she feared he might back out of their agreement.

In a text message exchange that Mr. Weisberg provided to The Times, he pressed her on details of the agreement.

“Was the Trump lawyer Michael Cohen?” he asked.

“Yep!” responded Ms. Clifford, who goes by the stage name Stormy Daniels.

She forwarded Mr. Weisberg a draft amendment to the original agreement in which the parties were referred to by pseudonyms. Mr. Weisberg shared it with The Times.

According to the draft, Ms. Clifford was referred to as “Peggy Peterson” and was represented by a lawyer named Keith Davidson. On the other end of the negotiations were other parties referred to as “David Dennison” and “David Delucia.” Ms. Clifford promised to send Mr. Weisberg the original paperwork. But shortly after the text message exchange, Ms. Clifford stopped responding. Mr. Weisberg said that his conversations with the actress were on the record but that he was not prepared to write the story without her consent.

yes, surely an affair with a porn actress would have let Clinton win. not all those other abhorrent things, but this one. this was the one.

counterfactuals are silly, but the lack of a real follow-up to access hollywood tapes opened the door for republicans to quietly reverse their unendorsements. an additional story that builds on access hollywood, with hard evidence of a hush money agreement, could have knocked the bottom out

as scocca notes in this twitter thread, trump just straight up disappeared for a couple weeks following AH, and staying out of the news helped him

What became of her? She lived, as she liked to say, off the kindness of gentlemen. I assume she’s dead.

Just saw something about how the police scanner said it was a drill and the alert was sent in error but I have no idea, that's a terrifying mistake? What the fuck?

That's got to be one of the all-time world historical fuckups sending an alert like that with "THIS IS NOT A DRILL" language.
