Mike's Blog Round Up
February 7, 2017

So, Donald, you orange-tinted demagogue, you really think the media don't report on terror attacks? Or is that just what those deranged 9/11 truthers and satanic-ritual conspiracy theorists told you, you know, those voices you hear when you wander around in a stupor in your bathrobe trying to sooth your maniacal ego that knows all too well just how thoroughly inadequate you are?

Oh, but how about the massacre in Quebec City? Or is it okay when the murder is committed by your people? Do you care to comment? Do you intend to say anything about it? Or does it just not fit into your (and President Bannon's) deranged, bigoted worldview? Maybe Melissa McCarthy can fill us in next Saturday. We'll be waiting.

P.M. Carpenter: The rightful owner of populism.

The Mahablog: The Trumpist moochers-in-chief.

Can It Happen Here?: The rain and snow of climate change.

The Moderate Voice: The would-be Trump of France.

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

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