The first thing up is pretty minor but for some reason is really bothering me. John Oliver did a bit about the Right’s, and Geraldo Rivera’s, joy in dropping the MOAB bomb in Afghanistan (screen grab below links to video).
Geraldo didn’t like that one bit and started squawking about “throat cutting savages”. Nice.
Someone should tell Geraldo about those ‘throat slashing savages” in Saudi Arabia.
The planet has been on pins and needles over the situation with North Korea.
Since the North Korean’s missile launch failure on Saturday and Trumpy sending a carrier strike group, the Russians and Chinese are now stalking the Americans.
Pence is in Korea making tough-guy faces and noises that seem to be working wonders… if your goal is to ratchet up the tension.
