    I read Cheeto’s new tweet after his conversation with Löfvens, and I’m not sure he got Löfvens’ answer right.

    Here it it is in swedish:
    Jag har förstått att president Trump är personligen intresserad av fallet med de häktade amerikanerna. Han har uttryckt önskemål om ett samtal och det är naturligtvis positivt", sa han då i ett uttalande till TT.
    "I Sverige är alla lika inför lagen, även besökare från andra länder. Den svenska regeringen varken kan eller kommer att försöka påverka åklagare eller domstolar”.


    Basically he acknowledges Dump’s interest in the case but said that the Swedish government won’t do anything because in Sweden everybody’s equal in front of the law, even if they come from another country (and an orange piece of shit vouches for them)
    An analyst on CNN pointed out that Sweden does not have bail. Just unreal.....

    There is no bail system because Swedish law considers it would create inequalities between those who could afford it and therefore be free before their trial. and those who can’t.


    I don’t know where Dump thought he was negotiating with Löfvens as his last sentence is crystal clear « the government cannot and will not interfere with either the prosecutor or the judges », so I can’t wait for the next tweet describing Löfvens as a « low IQ individual » as soon as it will appear clear that this is not gonna get anywhere.



    And as though this presidency isn’t WTF enough, I am now looking at a tweet from Justin fucking Bieber and liking it.
    God what has come of this world?

    We slipped into an alternate dimension a while back, and everything is wrong here.

    Charles Pierce:

    "In my life, I have watched John Kennedy talk on television about missiles in Cuba. I saw Lyndon Johnson look Richard Russell squarely in the eye and and say, "And we shall overcome." I saw Richard Nixon resign and Gerald Ford tell the Congress that our long national nightmare was over. I saw Jimmy Carter talk about malaise and Ronald Reagan talk about a shining city on a hill. I saw George H.W. Bush deliver the eulogy for the Soviet bloc, and Bill Clinton comfort the survivors of Timothy McVeigh's madness in Oklahoma City. I saw George W. Bush struggle to make sense of it all on September 11, 2001, and I saw Barack Obama sing 'Amazing Grace' in the wounded sanctuary of Mother Emanuel Church in Charleston, South Carolina.
    "These were the presidents of my lifetime. These were not perfect men. They were not perfect presidents, god knows. Not one of them was that. But they approached the job, and they took to the podium, with all the gravitas they could muster as appropriate to the job. They tried, at least, to reach for something in the presidency that was beyond their grasp as ordinary human beings. They were not all ennobled by the attempt, but they tried nonetheless.

    "And comes now this hopeless, vicious buffoon, and the audience of equally hopeless and vicious buffoons who laughed and cheered when he made sport of a woman whose lasting memory of the trauma she suffered is the laughter of the perpetrators. Now he comes, a man swathed in scandal, with no interest beyond what he can put in his pocket and what he can put over on a universe of suckers, and he does something like this while occupying an office that we gave him, and while endowed with a public trust that he dishonors every day he wakes up in the White House.

    "The scion of a multigenerational criminal enterprise, the parameters of which we are only now beginning to comprehend. A vessel for all the worst elements of the American condition. And a cheap, soulless bully besides. We never have had such a cheap counterfeit of a president* as currently occupies the office. We never have had a president* so completely deserving of scorn and yet so small in the office that it almost seems a waste of time and energy to summon up the requisite contempt.

    "Watch how a republic dies in the empty eyes of an empty man who feels nothing but his own imaginary greatness, and who cannot find in himself the decency simply to shut up even when it is in his best interest to do so. Presidents don't have to be heroes to be good presidents. They just have to realize that their humanity is our common humanity, and that their political commonwealth is our political commonwealth, too.
    Watch him behind the seal of the President of the United States. Isn't he a funny man? Isn't what happened to that lady hilarious? Watch the assembled morons cheer. This is the only story now."

    - Charles Pierce

    To all my American friends/Patriots whether you live in the US or around the World-
    I cannot fully imagine the full horror of what this current American Administration is having on all of you whether it is physical, psychological, emotional, financial and/or social.
    I am deeply saddened and more than a little angry at the desecration of all that is, and always was, everything that made America great.
    In less than three years one man has caused pain, misery and suffering to individuals, communities, hardworking people, the frail and disabled, the vulnerable, those of all colours, creeds and our friends in the LGBT community.
    The pain is palpable all around the World and I just want you all to know that we hear you, we feel you and we are standing up to support you all through what is one of those times, in World history, where we count as one.
    My parents had a piece of embroidery on which my mother stitched the Holocaust poem. I read it every day because the one thing we have is something that nobody can steal from us. That one thing is 'hope'. We have never needed hope so much as we do at this moment.

    I hope I don't sound 'mawkish' but when HWBL posted Charles Pierce's commentary I felt it was appropriate to wave my hand across the water to my American friends.
    With love to all, xxooxx

    No..no...Trump wasn't talking about people like her. She's special. He meant the brown people. You know, those other people.

    Unions and socialism have been dirty words in the US for a long time. Right-to-work laws and all.
