Space age love song

Just scanning videos this morning, and saw this and thought, “God, those guys are old.”

Because I remember the time I saw them in concert, and they looked like this:

But that was the ’80s.

Then I realized, I was older then than they were. Which means I’m older now than they are.

God, I’m old.

But at least I have my hair.

Allies of evil … and evil

You would think this was the most corrupt thing to happen this week. You would be wrong:

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, the president’s daughter and son-in-law, brought in at least $82 million in outside income while serving as senior White House advisers during 2017, according to financial disclosure forms released Monday.

Trump earned $3.9 million from her stake in the Trump International Hotel in Washington and more than $2 million in severance from the Trump Organization, while Kushner reported over $5 million in income from Quail Ridge, a Kushner Cos. apartment complex acquired last year in Plainsboro, N.J.

The filings show how the couple are collecting immense sums from other enterprises while serving in the White House, an extraordinary income flow that ethics experts have warned could create potential conflicts of interests.

Grifters gotta grift. Apparently this is OK. But don’t you dare call her feckless.

Spanky’s foreign policy, via ‘South Park’

What the hell is happening?

Several U.S. and foreign leaders on Sunday leapt to the defense of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after he was assailed on Sunday morning talk shows by two of President Trump‘s top advisers.

Both White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow and Trump’s top trade adviser, Peter Navarro, blasted the Canadian leader, sparking criticism from leaders at home and abroad.  Politicians focused in particular on comments from Navarro, who laid into Trudeau on “Fox News Sunday” for his pledge to implement retaliatory tariffs on the U.S.

“There’s a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door,” Navarro said.
