If Trump actually defected to Russia, that *might* have been worse than what he did today.

So, uh. All that happened. The President of the United States stood on foreign soil and trash-talked the security apparatus of America, and America itself, while kissing the entire ass of an oppressive dictator who seeks to directly harm us and destroy our democracy. That is a thing we witnessed happening live on TV in the year of our lord 2018. Yep.

I mean, I really, honestly don’t know what to say about all that. I’m just sitting here tallying up my credentials and thinking to myself, “No way am I gonna be able to immigrate to Canada. Fuck, I can’t even remember if that usage is supposed to be ‘immigrate’ or ’emigrate.’ I’m too dumb for Canada.”

(I just Googled it. It’s “immigrate.” See, Canada? I can learn. I even already like poutine.)

So, of course, everyone had statements to make. The GOP made a lot of disapproving noises, but I mean, that’s all they’re gonna do. They’re not going to act against Trump, or censure him, or impeach him, or anything useful, because they’re a bunch of sociopathic opportunists who don’t even have the common decency to be actually evil. They’re just greedy and power hungry.

I don’t know what to tell you about all that. Just make damn sure you’re register to vote, that you stay registered to vote, and that you actually get your ass out and vote on election day, folks.
