  • On February 14th, 2017, the head of US Special Operations Command said that the federal government is in "unbelievable turmoil," and that he hopes it gets sorted out soon because we are "a nation at war." That's reassuring.
  • On February 14th, 2017, Alternet did a very comprehensive report on the initiative by congressional republicans to mark Muslim civil society groups as terrorists. The initiative is, of course, backed by DT. 
  • On February 15th, 2017, in a series of back to back tweets, DT claimed that the "fake news" reporting on his Russian connections was a conspiracy to distract from Secretary Hillary Clinton's failed campaign for President, and that leaks to the New York Times and Washington Post were illegally obtained. I would say that it's not clear whether DT realizes that false information is not under any confidentiality order and therefore he was undermining his own argument that the information is false by calling it illegally leaked, but let's be honest... he doesn't.
