Gonna be a fun four years with His Excellency Trump doing Trump things and us with only a limited scope for making fun of him.

Incidentally, did you know that the US President is formally styled as "Your Excellency", in addition to "Mr. President"? I really hope that Trump tries to get people to call him that.

Wat...and it's the republicans who suggested this?

Why wouldn't they? Both parties would love to have a propaganda mouthpiece through which to spread their bullshit. This, combined with the new Portman-Murphy bill is pretty worrying.

to ensure that human rights are respected, with force if necessary, and that all nations recognize the inevitable and unalienable rights of all human beings regardless of their individual and harmless differences, or Idiosyncrasies;
to represent the interests of all humankind to other sapient species;
to protect all humanity and its’ colonies from unneeded violence or danger;
to promote technological advancement and scientific achievement for the happiness, knowledge and welfare of all humans;
and to facilitate cooperation in the spheres of law, transportation, communication, and measurement between nation-states.

I don't know what's worse, the fact that all this shit is happening, or that some Trump supporters don't seem to care that the FBI may have influenced the election and that Russia is interfering with our elections on top of that.

The second part is worse, I think.

People seem perfectly willing to mutton-head this country into some deep shit. That's just unconscionable.

They don't care, they will protect their vision of America at all costs. They will cheer the foreign interventionists and drive out the dirty liberals to hide in the country and fight back again and again. It is an utter fucking pile of shit.

I'm sort of concerned that the FBI and Russia seem to be on the same side.

I means, that could be purely coincidental of course, but it's disturbing nonetheless.

I'd say 50/50. I have no doubt that he's going to do an awful lot of stupid and harmful crap, but I'm unsure as to how low the GOP's standards are, so long as the president is one of them.

I'm almost certain that he'll try if he finds out. It's been firmly established that the man is almost pathologically obsessed with status and recognition.
