Sorkin Girls,

Well the world changed late last night in a way I couldn’t protect us from. That’s a terrible feeling for a father. I won’t sugarcoat it—this is truly horrible. It’s hardly the first time my candidate didn’t win (in fact it’s the sixth time) but it is the first time that a thoroughly incompetent pig with dangerous ideas, a serious psychiatric disorder, no knowledge of the world and no curiosity to learn has.


Breitbart and Infowars Become President Trump’s New Media Establishment

Info Wars fringe founder Alex JonesAs President-elect Donald J. Trump might say, something’s going on in the media-political complex, and we’ve got to figure out what the hell it is.

Trump’s shocking ascendancy as the 45th president of the United States has reduced conventional wisdom and time-honored political norms to smoking rubble, but it is also likely to threaten, if not topple, the previously unchallenged primacy of the mainstream media.

UN: Eastern Aleppo residents at risk of mass starvation

Aleppo civilians ndear starvation pointThe UN has urged the Syrian government, Russia and rebel groups to immediately allow food deliveries to besieged areas of eastern Aleppo, issuing a bleak warning that the 250,000 civilians still trapped in the divided city are at risk of mass starvation as the winter sets in.

On January 20, 2017, we will bid farewell to the first African-American President—a man of integrity, dignity, and generous spirit—and witness the inauguration of a con who did little to spurn endorsement by forces of xenophobia and white supremacy. It is impossible to react to this moment with anything less than revulsion and profound anxiety.
