Friday News Dump: Loser Trump's Lawyer Wrote Coup Memo, And Other News

For some reason, our national news organizations just ignored it.

So this memo came out this week, written by Trump lawyer John Eastman, that was intended to provide a legal pretext for Mike Pence to participate in their coup attempt. CNN and MSNBC covered it, sure, but the national networks, which have much bigger audiences, ignored it -- except for the late night shows, like Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert. Which is weird, considering it's a BIG F*CKING DEAL!



I hope you all enjoy our first autumn weekend! Stay paranoid, and mask up in enclosed spaces.

Enjoy some Neil Young:
