City life: I took the dog for a walk close to 7 p.m., and even though it wasn’t raining here at all, there was a pretty grand rainbow in the east, which we enjoyed until it disappeared. For a while it was doubled. Very nice.
A while later Alan pulled into the driveway.
“See the rainbow?” I asked.
“Yes. And I think someone on I-94 saw it, because he’d run his car up the embankment and rolled back down. He was standing outside smoking a cigarette, and grocery bags full of his crap were all over.”
Just another Monday evening. An exhausting one, for me — slept badly and had a series of frustrating blah-blahs, but oh well. A couple squares of dark chocolate and a glass of wine should do it.
So, a little bloggage?
Your daily presidential embarrassment, via Haberman at the NYT:
In the span of 72 hours, President Trump described the email hacking that roiled the 2016 campaign as a Democratic “hoax” and as clear aggression by Russia that his predecessor, President Barack Obama, failed to address.
Other times, Mr. Trump has said the hacking might have been done by China.
Or, as he claimed during the first general election debate, the hacking could have been the work of a lone wolf weighing 400 pounds, sitting on his bed at home.
Then there was the time Mr. Trump blamed “some guy in his home in New Jersey.”
Or, as Mr. Trump has also suggested, there might not even have been hacking at all…
Twenty-two million more uninsured. MAGA, mofos.
I think I need to see “Wonder Woman” or something. Happy Tuesday to all.
