Liz is over at Public Notice writing about how Trump lit all his legal defenses on fire on “Meet the Press.”
This is a really really good longread about Never Trump Republicans, are they just Democrats now? (Yes. The answer is yes. That includes, God help us, Bill Kristol. He’s a bad Democrat, but a Democrat just the same. Also, a lot of the realignment — people voting with their feet, away from crazy — predates Trump. He didn’t invent lunatic rightwingers and fascism.) An interesting point though is that as people become Democrats, they start to take on the main group’s mores. That’s why we can understand that the Democratic Party is a big tent filled with some conservatives who left their previous party — but they have to be down with the first order of business, which is feeding children. You know who I’m talking to. — The New Republic
You know WHO ELSE targeted trans people? That’s right. Hitler.
