5:15. I needed those sunglasses.

RWW - I wonder if even the statement he has "confirmed" it is true. He does have a few other things on his plate. Oh, I know, that's never stopped him before.

MSNBC - Yeah, I've been following this story. Given how they handled the "separations" (a better word would be "kidnappings"), it really would not have been possible to meet the court-ordered deadlines even if they were trying to do so. Which they aren't. See my meme below, which was written about Brexit, but certainly applies here. (And I will work on a better version, but it really needs to be put up NOW.

DKos - TC, TC, WHAT are you THINKING! There won't BE any public schools! Only private schools, and only for those who can aFford them! So they DO have to learn Russian NOW!

Cartoon - Yup. I am finally seeing how it happened that they stole our color - and why.

The Rethuglicanazis want to establish one-party control over the U.S. the way the Communist party controlled the Soviet Union, and how it controls China today. We are, I fear, headed towards an era of fascism - but this time there is no "great white hope" that practices real democracy and has the political and military muscle to stand up to the villains.

Hold on tight, we're in for one helluva ride. Hope you survive.

BBA: He (dt) doesn't even have a clue of what he's saying/doing. Nothing.

MSNBC: He's responsible for this debauchery, l get ill over this. Anyone else who would do this, would be in jail for life. Sickening!

DK: Frightening!!! Ditto, Freya, I hear ya loud and clear!

Cartoon: ugh!!

Hope that you get a chance to relax this evening, take care, and Thanks, Tom.

Puzzle — 5:22 Glasses won’t help me tonight!

Right Wing Watch — What a blithering idiot! She makes no sense! “When Trump confirms something is real, that proves that it’s bullshit!” — AMEN!!!

MSNBC — It appears that the Drumpf régime has done precious little to comply with the court order. As I understand things, this means that the Drumpf régime is in contempt of court for failing to meet the deadline. I also saw an article in which a group, the ACLU perhaps, was suing the Drumpf régime over its failure to reunite the children with their parents. “…those children have rights, but in a Republican Reich all children’s rights end at birth.” — Now ain’t that the truth!

Daily Kos — As Stanley Tucci said in The Devil Wears Prada . . . “Gird your loins people!” A bumpy ride is an understatement. Republicans will try to maintain power in any way necessary.

Cartoon — Ain’t that the truth!

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

RWW: Every time we look at a clip of those raving lunatics their counters go up and they, and the little real support they have, believe they’re very popular. They help Drumpf manipulate his base, but we aid them too by giving them our attention. For the time being I’m no longer going to waste my precious time on them; reading your comment is information, and revulsion, enough for me right now, TomCat.

MSNBC: The administration is sticking its middle finger up to both the courts, all those protesters out there and to the Democratic part of Congress and the handful of Republicans who demand oversight now. It can’t be a coincidence that the Drumpf administration had the United States joins Iran, North Korea and Eritrea as the only countries that refuse to participate in the world’s most important human rights body last month.
America on the sliding slope to dictatorship and fascism? No, America hit the bottom of that slope right then.

DK: I’m tired of all this, I can’t afford the time and energy to witness America’s downfall, but I’m too scared of the implications it has for the rest of the world to stop following it. But I’m running out of fresh comment, not knowing how to clad the repeats in different words. And now Drumpf is coming to Europe again…have mercy.

RWW: She needs to go back on her psych meds!!
MSNBC: Just last month the Trump administration said it knew how….” That’s all one needs to hear! The bottom line is that ANYTHING the Trump administration says, is bound to be BS!!
DK: Da tovarich!
‘Toon: Precisely!
