Monday Round-Up

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.

Both sides appear to be talking themselves into action here, and remember, Trumpy’s signature move is the double-down.


One more item:  Take it for what it’s worth. Louise Mensch is a shaky source. The Palmer Report, I find to be a little edgy, pushing the bounds a bit, but he’s been credible so far. There’s rumors that there is damning evidence of collusion between Trumpy and the Russians. It’s still bubbling below MSM level and I’m not sure… but take it under advisement:

Intel sources: Donald Trump and three advisers caught on tape committing Russian treason

Here’s Olbermann’s latest video on this very subject:
