Mike's Blog Round Up
December 23, 2016

Of course, Trump supporters are ignorant idiots if they really think he's going to "drain the swamp." It's just a line from an egomaniacal cynic who has obviously fooled a lot of people. Swamp or no swamp, though, the Orange Turd is basically filling it with nuclear waste, and the result will be far worse than the usual corruption.

And while we can all find it amusing, and deserving, that he's having trouble finding "A-list" celebrities to appear at his initial Nuremberg rally inauguration, the future is looking bleaker and bleaker, and more and more dangerous, due to the Orange Turd's ignorance and irrationality.

Alicublog: It's nutsy Nazi time!

Human Voices: It's crazy fake news!

P.M. Carpenter: It's Trumpism unbound!

Merry "Christ"mas Eve Eve!

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings.) I'll be here through the weekend.

Send requests and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
