Pompeo is the worst Secretary of State ever, concludes @fmkaplan, “having left the diplomatic corps in a hollow rut (which could take a decade to rebuild), the nation less secure, and our network of alliances...frazzled at its core.”

The fatigue I feel these days is unlike any other I've ever felt. I end each day just WRUNG out. After doing very little, btw. It's a kind of weariness that is new to me.

Ok, I will start. I didn’t give any Capitol tours to anyone last week.

Since Trump’s almost out of office, I figured this would be a fun time to remind everyone of the weirdest & dumbest sh*t our failed dictator did in the last four years that we totally forgot about.

Starting with a classic:

I condemned the violence this summer and worked as a Guardsman to restore order. BUT there is NO equivalency between the terrible destruction then, and an attempt to attack and destroy the very foundation of our freedom and democracy. NONE. #RestoreOurGOP

Biden announces his White House science team:

Dr. Eric Lander, Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy
Dr. Alondra Nelson, OSTP Deputy Director
Dr. Francis Collins, NIH Director
Kei Koizumi, OSTP Chief of Staff
Narda Jones, OSTP Legislative Affairs Director

This is as if you’re hearing that a semi-pro local team, staffed by people with beer guts, is being replaced by KC Chiefs/ Federer-Nadal / choose your parallel.

Quoted @jonkarl

Mr. Tuberville doesn’t seem to know what the three branches of government are either ...

“Our government wasn’t set up for one group to have all three branches of government — wasn’t set up that way,” Tuberville said. “You know, the House, the Senate, and the executive.”

To be fair, there are three branches — so many! — who can bother to know them all?

How will ever explain to the future that it's 5 pm on the last Friday of Trump's presidency, and he is in the White House meeting with the MyPillow guy to discuss martial law while an actual army is deployed to the capital Green Zone to protect against Trump's violent supporters?

This is what I mean. The universe of members who gave tours to people dressed like the insurrectionists on January 5 can’t be very large, and if what they were doing was completely innocent, they could (and presumably would?) put the controversy to rest.

Meanwhile at WH, the President is meeting with the CEO of a pillow company to discuss firing the director of CIA and NSA in order to keep up the pretense that the election was "stolen". ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

DOJ has concluded that the Luzerne County employee who discarded 9 ballots in Pennsylvania — a matter that Trump was briefed on and used to lodge false claims about fraud and misconduct — did not have criminal intent.

Case closed.
