No broken hip will keep President Jimmy Carter from teaching his Sunday School class. No way. There are expectations, and then there are expectations. Speaking of honey… Who remembers when Hunter S. Thompson ran for sheriff? AG Barr makes a funny. Relax. It’s just chicken. Gene Simmons rocks the Pentagon. Woooohooooo. Let’s go! Make it stop! Worse than sawdust in the engine.

Wednesday night saw two new Trump pardons. A billionaire California Assemblyman convicted of campaign violations warranted pardon as a “friend” of Kushner and by speaking out to criticize the Trump-Russia investigation. Trump pardoned billionaire and Trump business partner Conrad Black for writing a a tribute to Trump’s success and genius. ”[The book] defends Trump against charges that he is a racist, stating flatly that he is not. It hails his “very successful” foreign policy ventures. It credits his “unquenchable energy,” “sheer entertainment talent” and “raw toughness.” Black spent over three years in prison after conviction on fraud and obstruction of justice charges—Trump pardoning fraud and obstruction isn’t co-incidence.

If the report completely exonerates Trump and his administration, wouldn’t release just bring a peaceful ending to this whole process?

TRUMP’s LAWYER BARR: …. ah … KAMALA HARRIS: Seems like something you should be able to answer BARR: I don’t know … Like most Republicans, Barr can’t remember what happened yesterday if it doesn’t suit the cult leader today, but has total recall from decades ago when it does.
