Thanks for giving The Beast a potential election boost by allowing him to appear semi-sane, at least in the eyes of Average Joes.

I didn’t think it would be possible for Trump to adopt a semi-palatable look in the middle of all this righteous rage and in the wake of his horrific non-handling of the pandemic, but he’s managed that. Or the looters have, I should say. It’s bullshit, of course, but he’s selling it.

Last night’s demonstration in Lafayette Park was peaceful, I’ve read. But Trump sent in troops regardless. Tear gas all around. Then he went over to St. John’s and held up a bible. Jesus wept.
