Do Not Feed the Racists
Tomorrow white supremacists will convene on Washington DC to mark the one year anniversary of them showing up in Charlottesville in white polo shirts, khaki pants and tiki torches to unite the right and show the world what the KKK looks like without hoods. The restaurants around town have vowed to give them the Sarah Huckabee Sanders treatment if they dare show up in any of their establishments to eat.
The Robert E. Lee statue is still standing in Charlottesville.
Charlottesville is closed off this weekend so nobody can cause trouble or get hurt because whenever white supremacists show up someone always causes trouble or gets hurt.
Mueller subpoenaed Randy Credico, a really bad stand up comic and Roger Stone’s Wikileaks connection. Randy turns everything into a really bad joke so this can’t be good.
Roger Stone’s associate, Andrew Miller, blew off appearing in court again. The judge is holding him in contempt of court.
Trump has picked Mitch McConnell’s brother in law to run the labor pensions agency because he still owes Mitch the Bitch something.
The suspect in the California fires, Forrest Clark, is Qanon follower and sucker for conspiracy theories. His own family members have filed restraining orders on him.

Peter Smith, the Republican operative who helped make Hillary Clinton’s emails a thing, made suspicious cash withdrawals right after making a plan to recruit dark web hackers to help him make Hillary’s emails even more of a thing.
Omarosa claims she was offered $15,000 a month by the Trump organization to keep her mouth shut after she got fired. She wrote a book. She’s launching it this weekend in honor of the first year anniversary of Charlottesville because reality it’s all reality TV.
A conservative street artist snuck on to Hollywood Blvd and placed 50 vinyl Donald Trump stars on the Walk of Fame because someone vandalized his president’s real star. He wishes to remain anonymous. Probably because he’s the only MAGA street artist in the world and he doesn’t want any of the Hollywood elites to yell at him as he walks the streets of Hollyweird in his polo shirt and khaki pants. Somebody might take a vinyl pick ax to his head.
Republican hypocrite fun fact: Kansas’ Secretary of State Kris Kobach relented and said he would finally recuse himself from recounting votes for himself (with his fingers crossed behind his back.) He’s the guy that claims that voter fraud is a thing.
A handful of Republicans are sticking their necks out to say vote for Democrats in November to save the Republican party.
The Green Party was made an official party in Montana on Monday and by the end of the day Timothy Adams filed as a Green Party candidate to run against Democratic incumbent Senator Jon Tester. Adams is actually a Republican. He’s doing this to take votes away from Tester. Adams is also the treasurer of “Montanans Against Higher Taxes,” he filed to run as a Libertarian candidate in a state House race in 2012, and he was also on the state’s Republican Party payroll from October 2013 through May 2015.
Trump’s mobster attorneys took over Sean Hannity’s radio show for 3 hours to poison the future jury pool. They should be disbarred for doing this, but they won’t be. These guys could shoot somebody on 5th Avenue and get away with it.
A couple of bankers who gave Paul Manafort money were promised jobs in the Trump administration. Wanna run the military? Sure! Housing and Urban Development? OK! How about the treasury?

ACTION ITEM FOR TODAY: To counter what the Unite the Right is doing this weekend, share this op-ed by Stosh Cotler, the CEO of Bend the Arc Jewish Action, because in August 2018 we’re facing the disturbing reality that white nationalism is no longer a fringe ideology. It lives and breathes in this administration’s attacks on immigrants, on Muslims, and communities of color.
