Jared and Ivanka refuse to let the Secret Service use any of the six (!) bathrooms in their house, so they have had to be creative. First they tried Obama's house down the street, but there were problems.
The Obamas did not use the garage, so the extra traffic to and from the command post caused no problem. Yet this solution, too, was short-lived after a Secret Service supervisor from the Trump/Kushner detail left an unpleasant mess in the Obama bathroom at some point before the fall of 2017, according to a person briefed on the event. That prompted the leaders of the Obama detail to ban the agents up the street from ever returning.

They should have just taken a dump on Jared.

Interesting take on Trump and the people around him, with a bit of geekery thrown in:
Why is anyone devoted to Trump, willing to endure working for him? He betrays virtually everyone who works for him. He humiliates and belittles them in public, he ignores their professional advice, he undercuts the hard work of weeks in a second’s thoughtless impulsivity. He cheats people out of pay and benefits, sometimes knowingly as an act of vindictiveness, sometimes just because it’s just his basic method. He has no interest in or consideration for the personal lives of people who work with him or for him, no ability to show empathy. He plainly can barely remember the names of people that he’s worked with on a daily basis and yet he demands their constant attention and adulation.

It’s kind of a running joke among people who write and read comic books that super-villains hire henchmen who then they routinely dispose of, cheat of the proceeds, or use as cannon fodder. The joke is, “In the real world, nobody would ever work with the bad guys because everybody would know what comes next.” Wrong again! We’re busy talking about whether Trump is a fascist, but the other thing he closely resembles is in fact a comic-book supervillain. I wish I were kidding.

Or, put another way, in the case of the protection detail, a job that advertises as being so selfless that you're expected to take a bullet for your principal attracts people for whom absolute servility is their kink.

In fairness to the US Secret Service, I think they sign up for the job in the belief they are serving their country, not the particular person. (Though I wonder what their perspective on the Orange One is.)

I totally support Trump’s pardon of Bannon. It’s the most representative exhibit of the Trump administration. Trump supporters getting conned by a Trumpist and then getting away with it because Trump doesn’t care about people that support him.

The latest list is full of slime:
Besides Bannon, other Trump family allies to get pardons were Elliott Broidy, a Republican fundraiser who pleaded guilty last fall in a scheme to lobby the White House to drop an investigation into the looting of a Malaysian wealth fund, and Ken Kurson, a friend of Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner who was charged last October with cyberstalking during a heated divorce.

Among them were rappers Lil Wayne and Kodak Black, both convicted in Florida on weapons charges. Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, has frequently expressed support for Trump and recently met with the president on criminal justice issues. Others on the list included Death Row Records co-founder Michael Harris and New York art dealer and collector Hillel Nahmad.

Pardoned were former Rep. Rick Renzi, an Arizona Republican who was sentenced to three years for corruption, money laundering and other charges, and former Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham of California, who was convicted of accepting bribes from defense contractors. Cunningham, who was released from prison in 2013, received a conditional pardon.

Trump commuted the prison sentence of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, who has served about seven years behind bars for a racketeering and bribery scheme.

Apparently Qanon adherents are fragmenting in the wake of the non-occurrence of "The Storm". Some are starting to realize they got played, but the majority are taking the "Me get fooled? That's unpossible!" tack and holding that Biden is actually Q, or that somehow Trump was unable to overcome the Deep State, or something, anything, to avoid facing the fact that they're gullible morons.

Donnie does know showbiz, especially the part about paying for fame. If JX wanted a pardon, he should have contributed that limo money to Trump's get out of jail fund.

After having the election stolen from him, being blamed for an insurrection, and likely facing multiple criminal prosecutions, on his way out the door, Donald J Trump sent me six hundred United States Dollars. What a class act.

He tried to oust the interim AG and replace him with a crackpot who had a scheme to force GA to overturn the results.

What is Trump even doing these days? With the caveat that I'm not the most informed person, it seems like after he got booted from Twitter he dropped off the face of the earth.

He has set up the "Office of the Former President". Also his lawyers are bailing on him setting up the hope for him to represent himself at his Impeachment trial.

Trump won’t represent himself because we’re not allowed to have anything wonderful anymore.
