Mike's Blog Round Up
February 3, 2018

Happy Saturday, fellow Crooks and Liars! In all of the excitement this week between the 'State of the Uniom' address and the big reveal of the #nothingburgernunes memo, we forgot to acknowledge that this week was the 58th anniversary of the Woolworth Lunch Counter sit-in.

Stonekettle Stattion takes a long look at one of the claims in the 'State of the Uniom' address. Well-done, sir!

His Vorpal Sword tells us that the thick is plottening!

Rubber Hose says he would not brag about the cognitive test Preznint Stupid aced.

Bonus Track: Strong Language gives us the scholarly report on translating the Russian Usurper's favorite word for third-world countries: s***hole. I've been saving this link for today!

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors. You can follow Tengrain on the Twitters, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with For MBRU in the subject line).
