SHIT! Wake up, let dogs out, make coffee, take sip, turn on TV and news is that suspect in NYC bombing is an American of Afghan descent.
We know what tack Trump is going to take now, so I am trying to prepare the best I can for being infuriated and terrified until the election.
Donald Trump on Monday boasted of having prematurely called the New York City explosion a “bombing,” telling Fox News that he should become a TV news anchor because of his ability to read between the lines during the incident’s immediate aftermath. The Republican presidential nominee was initially criticized for telling a rally crowd that “a bomb went off” mere minutes after news broke of an explosion, which ultimately injured 29 people. “If you saw [Hillary Clinton] in the back of the plane—and she used the word ‘bombs’ also, by the way. I heard—I didn’t see it—but I heard I was criticized for calling it correctly,” Trump lamented to Fox & Friends via telephone. “But what I said was exactly correct. I should be a newscaster because I called it before the news.”Daily Beast

This is a fantastic Joy Reid interview nailing a hapless and hopeless Trump surrogate’s ass to the wall:

Being president is hard work, 24/7, and you can’t make excuses when things go badly for you. The question I am hearing online more and more is whether Trump is unconsciously sabotaging himself… is this question finally seeping into the conscious orange slug brain…
This is something you can take action on. Go here and share with Facebook and Twitter.

Tonight on Rachel Maddow:
Discussing the alt-right press conference and how they are counting on Trump to advance their racist agenda, she showed this from Donald J. Trump, Jr.
The green cartoon to the right of Trump is Pepe the frog. The frog has become the meme promoted by the alt-right. Trump Jr., he of the gas chamber remark, said he had no idea who Pepe was.

My evening Pic-toon on Trump’s charitable contributions -- zero for last eight tax returns:
UPDATE on story below: Lawrence O’Donnell just played the clip of CIA Director Brennan and said "here’s the translation of this, the CIA chief just said Donald Trump is a liar.”
When you think it can’t get any more unfuckenbelieveable dept.
COMMENTS A sitting CIA director (almost) calls a presidential candidate a liar!’
Hillary didn’t almost collapse. We only saw her stumble and look like she was woozy. We do know she was stepping off a curb at the time and also lost a shoe.
Here’s what it means for a person to collapse: to 2 fall down and become unconscious, typically through illness or injury. This is not only untrue, we just don’t know she almost because unconscious, but it is an unfortunate choice of a word when she’s next to the site of the Two Towers which really did collapse.
Meanwhile, here’s something Trump doesn’t want reported:
Tech Note: I’ve been letting these pages get too long and my guess is that some of you with slower Internet download speeds may find that the page takes awhile to open, especially since I usually have a lot of pictures. I’m going to keep the pages shorter.
For those of you who want to check your Internet speed go to http://speedcheck.xfinity or http://www.speedtest.net . If you are not satisfied with your download speed you may be able to do what I just did. XFinity can upgrade your service for a small fee and also change you cables and connections to maximize speed and put a powered booster where you cable comes into your residence. My downloads are now 3-5 times faster than they were before.
