WE ARE JUST SAYING.


Last week, we learned Donald Trump's Art of Diplomacy. According to the AP, he contemptuously and in a "humiliating" tone offered to send American troops to do the job Mexico couldn't -- pfft like there's ever been a job a Mexican dude can't do -- and news also broke that he'd slammed the phone down on the Australian prime minister after telling him that their call was "the worst."

Trump's people denied the Mexico exchange, and explained away the Australian meltdown as "fatigue" at the end of "a long day."

His phone call with the Australian prime minister was at 5 p.m.

Regarding the call with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, both Mexico and the US denied the AP's transcripts were real ... somehow ... until now! Now, the president is blaming the "leak" on "Obama people," and he is GRRR MAD! Via this dude on Twitter, so I don't have to watch the whole Fox report, because honestly, why on earth would I do that:

What's that say again, Herr Trump?

It's a disgrace that they leaked because it's very much against our country. It's a very dangerous thing for this country.

Hmmm, might there have been another recent occasion when the "president" felt differently about the patriotic value of leaks, and whether they were "good" or "bad"? Besides the Russian pee hookers we mean?

Oh, that's right, we remember now.

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
