Robert Gibbs is on the teevee reading statements, about Afghanistan! Obama and Karzai had an iChat this morning and it was "very productive." But what is the president's reaction to all of these crazyRolling Stone quotes? Well, says Gibbs, motherfucking Stanley McChrystal will have his skinny traitorous ass hauled before the President tomorrow and will then be executed in Utah, on Twitter. What a weird time.

"Is McChrystal's job safe?"

"We'll have more to say about that after the meeting."

What's happening, as far as anyone can tell, is the commanding officer of U.S. troops in Afghanistan is talking crazy shit about the Commander in Chief, and whatever Biden is (Vice President of Troops), and ... well this is just weird.

"We owe it to the men and women fighting over there to implement the policy that we agreed to," says Gibbs. "As Secretary Gates said, General McChrystal has made 'an enormous mistake.'"

Why hasn't McChrystal called the president yet? As for Obama, he didn't call the general, as he wants to fire the sonofabitch face to face.

Gibbs: "I gave [the president] the article last night, and he was angry." How angry? "Angry."

Meanwhile, haha, Rolling Stone has what's her name, Lady GaGa, on its website. UPDATE: They just emailed the link, the story is online now, on the Internet! It is actually fascinating. Good for this reporter, Michael Hastings, who will likely be offed tonight by McChrystal's black-ops stay-behind assassins. Ha ha do you think we're kidding, about McChrystal's dark past?

Besides, the public eye has never been a place where McChrystal felt comfortable: Before President Obama put him in charge of the war in Afghanistan, he spent five years running the Pentagon's most secretive black ops.

This guys sounds like a complete psychopath.

Execute McChrystal, Obama, you must do this, in Utah, on Twitter.

Because, really, why not? Let's go full-crazy. Let's do this. Don't just fade away, America. Go out with a bang! [Reuters/CBS News]

The president of the United States called a black woman a "dog" on Twitter Tuesday morning. It is common for folks who pride themselves on their supposed rational "level-headedness" to insist that Donald Trump's Twitter antics are part of some three-dimensional chess-like machinations intended to "distract" us from the Mueller investigation. But despite what Trump might think about my genetic stock, I'm capable of maintaining more than one competing thought in my head.

Sure, there's Russian collusion out the wazoo. Yes, immigrant children are still separated from their parents because of the Trump administration's cruel policies. But I also think whenever we dismiss something Trump does that would be a major story in any other presidency with a mammal chief executive, we help normalize this repulsive behavior.

I've mentioned before that every time Trump whips out his racist bullhorn, the "level-headed" brigade rapidly responds with examples of Trump also being an asshat to white guys and won't someone please think of them? "Doesn't Trump frequently call people dogs? He likes to take a Michael Vick theme to his personal insults." Charles M. Blow, who is more dedicated than I, looked into this claim, and it doesn't appear to be true.
