Monday News: Trump Blows Kiss to Comey; Pope Francis Muses on Trump and Hitler; #SeanSpicerSays


by Lowell

Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Monday, January 23.

  • Robert Reich:

    Trump’s White House is as mendacious, belligerent, and vindictive as he is. Instead of correcting his personality flaws it’s amplifying them.

    Trump counselor Kellyanne (“Alternative facts”) Conway, press secretary Sean (“The largest audience to ever witness an inauguration!”) Spicer, and chief of staff Reince (“We are going to fight back tooth and nail”) Priebus need to learn that governing is different from campaigning, and that serving the public is different from acting as brainless surrogates for their boss.

    Through history, America’s best presidents have surrounded themselves with people whose strengths offset their own weaknesses. Trump has assembled a bunch of Trump clones and clowns.

  • Video: Eric Byler’s “insanely inspiring mini-doc from The Womens March on Washington,” as he puts it. Great stuff!


  • Video: Del. Mark Keam speaks at Ditch Dirty Fuels Rally in Richmond


  • Video: Sean Spicer whiiiiines and whiiiines. Someone please call the waaaaaaaaaaaaambulance for him!


  • Bruce Springsteen: “The E Street Band is glad to be here in Western Australia. But we’re a long way from home, and our hearts and spirits are with the hundreds of thousands of women and men that marched yesterday in every city in America and in Melbourne who rallied against hate and division and in support of tolerance, inclusion, reproductive rights, civil rights, racial justice, LGBTQ rights, the environment, wage equality, gender equality, healthcare, and immigrant rights. We stand with you. We are the new American resistance.”

  • True Blue

    A Republican group is condemning the chairman of Loudoun County Board of Supervisors and participants for the statements of a few artists/actors at the March. Did Republicans ever condemn their presidential nominee for mendaciousness or misogynistic comments?
