“The Cruelty Is the Point”

This column by Adam Serwer is excellent.

From the column:

“Even those who believe that Ford fabricated her account, or was mistaken in its details, can see that the president’s mocking of her testimony renders all sexual-assault survivors collateral damage. Anyone afraid of coming forward, afraid that she would not be believed, can now look to the president to see her fears realized. Once malice is embraced as a virtue, it is impossible to contain.”

The painting of Republican presidents in the White House

The recent CBS interview showed there was a painting of Trump and Republican presidents hanging up in the White House.

The tweets below provide background on the painting and artist.  It is similar to a painting of dogs and someone made a great parody including Trump and other accused or guilty sexual predators.  All three are in the tweets.
