    Default Live blogging trumper tantrums

    Perhaps one thread to contain the petty, churlish, and perhaps scorched earth things President Trump does as he exits the White House.

    I debated whether to include this one. Very reasonable people with different political views disagree in these things. But one wonders about President Trump’s motives. So I chose this headline.

    We knew it was gonna be vandalism and spite for 2 months. And gross and incoherent sycophantic enabling by a good part of the elected Trumpists.

    Some, at least, are showing spine. Like Krebs, for instance.

    Twitter has now fact checked Trump’s tweet re this and has put up a warning that his claims are disputed...

    Twitter is being so bloody milquetoast-ish. "Official authorities dispute this characterization." "This steaming pile of horse sh#t can help grow beautiful petunias after thorough composting."

    A shocking, dangerous, anti-democratic lie should be named as such. And if the fascists have to decamp to Parler, wonderful.

    A few lawyers live-tweeted analysis of Giuliani's day in court yesterday. It seems that $20k/day buys a lot of blustering nonsense, but not much actual courtroom competence.

    To be fair to Rudy the last time he appeared in federal court was 1992. But his client is a moron and doesn’t care.

    Trump fires head of U.S. election cybersecurity for debunking conspiracy theories

    from the article:

    A source with knowledge of the firing said that Krebs found out about it via Twitter and that it was upsetting for him because he took the work seriously.

    Looking at his actions, it becomes increasingly clear that he is acting in his own personal interests on the way out - and those interests seem to be aligned with those who would wish this country harm.

    Yes that's the court appearance I was reading about yesterday.
    Those commenting on the proceedings seemed appalled by Rudy's lack of familiarity with rudimentary elements of courtroom etiquette and legal process.
    The judge was said to be exceedingly patient and even indulgent of the plaintiff's nonsense.

    Trump's last-minute foreign policy dumps are reportedly an attempt to overwhelm Biden and drown his agenda


    Trump fired the defense secretary and other Pentagon officials last week, telling acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller to focus on cyber and irregular warfare, particularly in China, an administration official tells CNN. The administration is "contemplating new terrorist designations in Yemen that could complicate efforts to broker peace," CNN continues. And it authorized a huge arms sale to the United Arab Emirates that could heighten tensions throughout the Middle East.All of these moves are plunging the U.S. into tricky territory right before President-elect Joe Biden takes office — and that just may be the point. As one administration official tells CNN, the administration is aiming to "set so many fires that it will be hard for the Biden administration to put them all out." And by forcing Biden into some foreign policy decisions he may have wanted to avoid, Trump could be setting Biden up to follow his agenda even after he's gone from the White House.

    Trump digs in at White House, denying Biden access on pandemic, national security
    More than two weeks since the election, President Donald Trump remains dug in at the White House, refusing to concede and to help his successor deal with critical and urgent issues: the pandemic and national security.
    Since becoming a lame-duck president, Trump has not only blocked cooperation with the incoming Biden administration, he has remained largely silent as the COVID-19 pandemic dramatically worsens nationwide; an average of 1,000 Americans have been reported dead each day since the election with the total fast approaching the 250,000 milestone.

    all except alcohol.

    I find it curious that a person who so obviously abuses pharmaceuticals would abstain from alcohol.
    Perhaps it's a corollary to an alcoholic who won't touch opiates? I dunno.

    Donald Trump's brother was an alcoholic, died of complications. I can understand why he doesn't drink.

    He seems to be in full “salt the fields” mode.

    Blowing up civil service protections, perhaps as prelude to December firings.

    The outgoing Trump administration is racing to enact the biggest change to the federal civil service in generations, reclassifying career employees at key agencies to strip their job protections and leave them open to being fired before Joe Biden takes office.
    The move to pull off an executive order the president issued less than two weeks before Election Day — affecting tens of thousands of people in policy roles — is accelerating at the agency closest to the White House, the Office of Management and Budget.
