Hola mon freres and schwestern, it is the beginning of US American Holiday Week, so here is your cruise itinerary! SER and Evan will be your skeleton crew today and tomorrow, bringing you like a lazy person’s idea of Wonkette. I will be here today scheduling all the stuff we pre-wrote for the rest of the week, or which I am writing right now.

Judge Aileen Cannon giving Trump a big ol smooch for Christmas, isn’t she sweet. (Our Liz’s Law & Chaos) This New York judge meanwhile (not Arthur Engoron, obviously) lifted the gag order so’s to allow Trump to threaten Engoron’s clerk all he wants. (AP) This part is very what is the opposite of LOL though, let’s read it:
Both posts included a picture that [Engoron’s clerk Allison] Greenfield had publicly posted online of her with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, but Trump added a falsehood about her personal life before sending it off to his millions of followers.
[Trump lawyer Christopher] Kise on Thursday characterized Trump’s addition as “political parody” and [Judge David] Friedman questioned if the blowback for Greenfield was entirely Trump’s fault, asking, “If you put something out in public and then it goes viral, who’s responsible?”
I … HE IS, YOUR HONOR, WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK. Also “SHE’S FUCKING CHUCK SCHUMER” IS NOT “POLITICAL PARODY” WORDS HAVE MEANINGS. I think I need to start a pill addiction, that might help!

How to save money on groceries! Somehow I ended up on this guy’s email list. Oh I know: It was for a “pay off your student loan giveaway.” Well guess what, Joe Biden did that already, the week he paid off every 51-year-old’s student loan in the land. I should presumably unsubscribe.
