Not going to link to the @nytimes article just published about how working class Florida Republicans allegedly feel more kinship with Trump *because* he’s being investigated. It’s a list of transparent lies, racism, and propaganda presented as if they’re viable ideas. It’s BS.

Saw an advance screening of Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” with my friend Drew. It’s a masterpiece, brilliantly acted (by DeNiro, Pacino, Pesci, etc.), staged, and photographed - a symphony of history, emotion, suffering, and rage. One of the most profound films ever made.

This tweet has it all: The Nazi wannabe with a phony resumé thinking anyone wants to listen to his bullshit; the racism; the demonization of a man who worked all his life to heal the wounds caused by villains like Gorka; projection onto “the Left.” No one will mourn this freak.
