    Republican Steve King: if not for incest and rape 'would there be any population left?'
    Not in Alabama probably, he's got a point there

    In related "I guess Republicans just say whatever they want now" news, the Trump advisor Ken Cuccinelli, having already proposed changing the famous poem on the Statue of Liberty that references how welcoming the nation is of immigrants even if they're poor and homeless, so that it would say "Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet, and who will not become a public charge", now says that the poem was only talking about "people from Europe" anyways.

    There's a really good article about Cuccinelli here. He's got some amazing history, including when he was a state senator proposing a law that would have allowed employers to fire their employees for speaking languages other than English, and which would also have then disqualified those people from unemployment benefits.

    The full text of the poem literally contains the phrase “from her beacon hand glows worldwide welcome”.

    @Your-Mother

    I always figured the Boo Radleys song "Lazarus" was about the poem on the Statue of Liberty. (It was written by Emma Lazarus. Cool name)

    So here's as 90s flashback to the hazy days when President Trump was a Simpson's gag...

    Cuccinelli is a racist cunt. What he said would have had an official lynched a few years ago, before it all went to shit, before the dark times.

    The full poem, part of which is inscribed on the Statue of Liberty and is about the statue, includes this line:

    “From her beacon-hand glows world-wide welcome.”

    You've got it all wrong, glows are a reference to brightness of skin colour.

    "From her beacon-hand, glows world-wide, welcome!"

    It must be weird being a regular person working at the White House. You hear dozens of different things the Stream of Consciousness President is thinking about every week, and you're never sure how much of it he's never going to mention again, and how much of it he's going to bring up again next week because he genuinely wants it.

    It's like taking a toddler through a supermarket. If you just ignore everything they say they want, chances are it's the last you'll hear of it.

    Unbelievable, what a fucking moron. Or is this another distraction? Whatever, news item on it:

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-49367792

    Perhaps he thought that the name implied it was all green? That wouldn't surprise me.

    Remind me again why this fucking idiot is in charge of the US?

    Yes I did see that, the GOP are really pushing hard to make us forget about that pesky old white supremacy. Tbh, any one of these scandals would have toppled a 'normal' administration but it isn't normal nor are these normal times. It's all so exhausting because all we do is get outraged because this shit is beyond the pale and then the next one comes, but it's too late because we're all numb and exhausted by the absurdity. That's how they've got away this shit because they've figured out the magic formula.

    Perhaps, it would still be like putting a week old plaster on a leaky bucket that was leaking shit.

    Have they also figured out the magic formula for quelling enormous riots and massive levels of civil disobedience and strikes? I ask because that's what will inevitably happen when people feel that justice isn't being done.

    The monsters in the GOP are propping up a fellow monster. It will not end well, particularly if Trump somehow gets another term.

    Indeed. They can just label everyone an enemy of Trump, which by association means you hate America and ergo makes you a terrorist.

    Joe Biden's apparently leading the polls for Democrat candidacy, but I so dearly hope he won't make it. The election campaign will be such a nasty mud fight and Trump is going to mop the floor with him. He couldn't even defend himself against criciticism in the primary debates, he's constantly stumbling over his own feet--how's he supposed to take up the fight against Trump who will show no restraint and constantly strike below the belt?

    While I'm not overly confident about a Sanders or Warren candidacy either, Biden just looks like a guarantee for another 4 years of Trump.

    It's probably not a good sign for Biden that he's ahead early, front runners don't usually stay that way do they? Plus Warren is generating a lot of momemntum it seems.

    Against Biden though I assume Trump would win again.
