It's like lancing a boil. A nasty business, but the relief is great. It's coming to a head, with all the racists exposed and ready to be squeezed out of American life for good and all. Rachel Maddow and Chris Hayes are doing wonderful work right now on MSNBC The lovely Heather McGee said some modest things about improving race relationships, and to her astonishment, her words have attracted a tremendous amount of attention. Chris Hayes did a nice interview with her.
Trump has run the worst presidential campaign in history. As a commentator said, he is in such trouble that he can't afford to turn down any support, even from outright fascists. So Breitbart and Alt Right stand exposed. The person behind Breitbart and Kellyanne Conway is a former Cruz supporter, billionaire Robert Mercer. Trump needs his money. Maddow explains here.
I was thrilled at the way Hillary Clinton took on the Breitbart frauds in her speech yesterday.
I was also thrilled and amused at the absurd rally in Mississippi with Trump introducing UKIP neofascist Nigel Farage to a crowd that did not know or care what Brexit was about! Maddow had a lot of fun scoffing at this nonsense.
I am not thrilled at the continued attacks on Clinton as regards the Clinton Foundation, coming from diehard Sanders supporters like David Sirota, who all but accuses her of being in bed with the Saudis because Saudi Arabia gave the Foundation money. As Chris Hayes points out, the perception of possible impropriety is a problem. There is this chronic problem with Hillary Clinton that she is a person with good intentions, but she is careless in these ways, as with the e-mails. But she is not a liar like Colin Powell, who lied to the UN about the non-existent WMD in Iraq and also used personal e-mail for official business.
And then we have the Grumpy Greens and the Loony Libertarians to provide more merriment!!!
Fun fun fun!
