So this memo came out this week, written by Trump lawyer John Eastman, that was intended to provide a legal pretext for Mike Pence to participate in their coup attempt. CNN and MSNBC covered it, sure, but the national networks, which have much bigger audiences, ignored it -- except for the late night shows, like Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert. Which is weird, considering it's a BIG F*CKING DEAL!



I hope you all enjoy our first autumn weekend! Stay paranoid, and mask up in enclosed spaces.

Enjoy some Neil Young:
