6:59 Now, *this one *is that difficult.
Here's the video from last night's livestream with the Mueller Book Club. It's just a little over an hour and a quarter. It starts out slowly but gets interesting pretty soon. It isn't set for CC; there's a button for it, but I couldn't figure out how to turn them on. Kevin Kline narrates, John Lithgow does Trump's lines, Jason Alexander Chris Christie's, Kyra Sedgwick Sarah Sanders's, and I think Joel Grey Jeff Sessions's (with quite the drawl). They all manage to keep straight faces (well, they are professionals) but the audience responds. So far I have seen 25 minutes of it, and I will definitely watch the rest.

MSNBC - Well, now we know what Trump means by "vetting." And, surprise, surprise, it's pretty well just what we thought! (And this also supports my point that any and everyone who leaves is replaced by someone worse.)

Pence - There's a little number in "Chicago" that would also work -

NYT - LOL! Mika had a few words to say -

Cartoon - Ain't that the truth!

I've seen pictures of Ms. Carrol from that time and she most certainly was his "type". In any case that is NOT a defense, in fact, I'd like nothing more than a trial and for him to assert that as his defense. He'd be convicted without the jury having even to retire to consider it, they could just take a poll right there in the jury box. 30 seconds, tops.

Given what he filled the swamp with, I think we all knew his vetting process was based solely on his ample gut. Which is worthless, though ample. And, still, the House sits on its hands, huffing and puffing away to no avail whatsoever while the orange idiot threatens other nations with obliteration in OUR names. WTF does it take to get those damn fools involved in our democracy? Their "strategy" is going to cost this nation everything. The world as much. It seems the Dark Ages have returned, perhaps literally if climate change obliterates our atmosphere which it just may do.

MSNBC: Love his description...." strikingly swampy", even the RNC vettors. WOW! Loved the end of clip too. lol

CNN: He's as sneaky and despicable as his boss is.

YT: This is the R's motto. Good video. I miss Charles Durning, great actor.

NYT: THIS! the 'president' of these United States.!!!

Cartoon: Truth be told !

Glad you'll get your meds. Hope Wendy has a good time. lol Take good care, and Thanks, Tom.

*I listened to the livestream of the Mueller Book Club this morning. Very, very well done, explains the obstructions down to a T. John Lithgow was my favorite, as he read what dt had said/done. Excellent! and Great job to all involved, and who read. If you haven't seen it yet, please make a date to watch it, it's worth your time, imho.

Christie and Pence are both full of it! Love the Y/T piece, at least that fellow has some socially redeemable talent!!
‘Toon: Too, sadly true.
Personal update: The first post-op visit went smoothly, and the staples are out!I only have one exercise to do, now, aimed at getting the last 10% of my arm straightening working. PT proper will begin after the next visit, on 7/9, and in Florida.There’s also vitamin E massaging of the wound, 2x per day. Now, I only wear the sling when I am walking, rather than the prior 24/7, and I’m typing with both hands again. For Nameless, who may have more familiarity with it: the procedure was a reverse shoulder replacement.

MSNBC: Good explanation.

CNN: pEnce is despicable. Watching him speak lies like his leader.
YT: Good video.
NYT: Shameful to hear the creep deny that he attacked a woman. Why nothing has been done about any of these acts, I still don't understand??
Cartoon: Sad that it's so true.
Glad that you will be getting your package soon. Tell Wendy to have fun and good luck.
Take care. Thanks TomCat
