An XKCD look at the 2016 election

Click on the map, because it’s huge. And here’s the thing that gets me.

See those green figures in Arizona, Florida, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania? They’re the reason we have Spanky McPornfucker befouling the White House.

Thanks a lot guys.

Where did I get the name of the White House befouler from?

Porn Star Stormy Daniels confirmed Sunday that she broke Donald Trump down by spanking his bottom with a magazine featuring his face on the cover — and had sex with him only once.

I hope you green figures burn that image in your brains.

Signs from the March for Our Lives

Hundreds of thousands of people, mostly kids, participated Saturday in the March for Our Lives. Below is the main stage after the event. It was impossible to get to it once the event began:
And here are the signs.

This was an official sign from the District of Columbia. It’s sad they had to post it, but there’s always some gun nut who thinks he has the right to terrorize people:

The following is something I’ve been saying for months:

People are sick of the “thoughts and prayers” response from politicians who prostitute themselves for the NRA …

Because people really know what the NRA stands for.

And the people at the march kept the focus on kids. Practically all of the speakers talked about how guns have affected their lives, from Parkland high school students, to kids in Washington, D.C., who have lost siblings to gun violence or who have stared down the barrel of a gun thinking it was going to be their last second alive.

There was also a reminder of when we had a compassionate, responsible, intelligent and uncorruptable leader in the White House not that long ago:

And there was this friendly reminder from a long departed neighbor:

I arrived at the march a little late and had to leave early because of the crush of the crowd, but while I was there, none of the speakers gave a roll call for the congressional whores who take NRA money in exchange for kids lives. Perhaps someone did do it, but if not, here’s a reminder:

Every politician who takes NRA money is an accomplice to murder. Every voter who selects an NRA shill is an accomplice after the fact. Remember that in November.

Rex, we hardly knew ye

The circus continues:

President Trump said Tuesday he has ousted Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and plans to nominate CIA Director Mike Pompeo to replace him as the nation’s top diplomat, orchestrating a major change to his national security team amid delicate outreach that includes possible talks with North Korea.

Trump and Tillerson have had a fraught relationship for many months. Trump told reporters Tuesday that he ultimately decided to fire the secretary because they disagreed over strategy in key areas of foreign policy, such as the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, the approach to North Korea and the overall tone of U.S. diplomacy.

Tillerson said he received a call from Trump around noon Tuesday, more than three hours after his firing was first reported by The Washington Post and announced minutes later in a tweet from the president.

Tillerson was probably the worst secretary of state in my lifetime. But his boss is still a douche for not telling him he was fired until three hours after it was reported.
