In case any of you missed it, Trump went on Fox and Friends this morning and proceeded to make even the hosts uncomfortable, talking about “Crowdstrike” servers hiding out in Ukraine (and I get shit for talking UFOs!) and whining that Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch was “no angel,” because she wouldn’t even hang Trump’s picture at the U.S. Embassy.
Alas, you know the drill already. None of it is true. None of it.
UFOs, yes, there is some truth to UFOs. The stuff about Crowdstrike and not posting Trump’s portrait? No, no truth at all. To the extent there is any truth, it was due to White House and administration ineptitude:
There's layers to this falsehood.
The White House didn't send out official portraits to the embassy in Ukraine until nearly a year into his presidency.
A member of Yovanovitch's legal team tells me she hung portraits of Trump, Pence & Pompeo "as soon as they arrived" from D.C. https://t.co/3rta8obwfM

We are not going to sit around and feel sorry for ourselves. True, we have now seen that the Republicans are unimpressed by clear evidence of a traitorous behavior. But, we simply are not going to do it, we’re not going to break down and pound on a pillow. We will make a conscious decision to move forward with action, not self-pity. For myself, I am already involved in 2020, and that’s how I am dealing with things. You will hear more about “how” I am involved at another point.
My other means of survival? A dive deep into our Friday Pick Six for the dozens of you out there (and you know who you are, emailers and Twitterers) that breathlessly await the weekly picks only to then question their worthiness, lol. I have heard from so many of you lately and it is deeply, deeply, appreciated. Peace, even if we disagree on …. 🙂
WHAT YOU SHOULD PICK TO CLICK:
Blink 182 “I Miss You” live from the Reading Festival 2014
BEST FOOTBALL GAME OF THE WEEKEND
9 Penn State v. 2 Ohio State
11:00 a.m. CST
BRAINFOOD TO IMPRESS NIC0LE
I cannot recommend this enough. Make a point of understanding the double slit experiment and all the implications (it’s why so many physicists are also philosophers), even if it take a year to understand, as it did for me.
THE BEST THING ON THE INTERNET
None other than Stormy Daniels takes the prize trolling the Dallas “Straight Pride” gathering:

Bonus, I saw a tweet by a man who said: “How did they come up with a flag that is gayer than all of ours!”
BEST THING ON THE INTERNET THAT INVOLVES A DOG
Even the King of the Jungle knows to show some respect when dealing with man’s best friend:
