A very brief message. Short and to the point.
I was going to write a whole thing about how Trump’s “attorneys” are lying about literally everything, and you can tell even if you don’t know anything about the hearsay rule or executive privilege and the crime-fraud exception or whether he needed to commit a felony and/or violate a federal statute for his offenses to be impeachable — he did *both* (the statute is the Impoundment Control Act and you can ask anybody about OMB about it and the felony is the use of covert propaganda against a U.S. citizen which is his trying to get Zelensky to announce an investigation about the Bidens even if there was never an actual investigation) but NO, LYING TRUMP LAWYERS, YOU DON’T *NEED* EITHER ONE FOR THE CASCADE OF CROOKED THINGS TRE45ON HAS DONE JUST SO FAR TO BE AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE - but you all are a smart and reading crowd and you already know all that stuff.
So in case anyone is still wondering whether or not the #PowerOfWhiteness is both what is powering this charade as well as Why We The People of the United States Don’t Have Nice Things (in case you missed that discussion in the 1619 Project’s curriculum):
Think also about the fact that there are writers of color who have been covering these problems literally for decades, but it took a white man going on Bill Maher to scoop up all that money from a publisher who wouldn’t take that thesis from a writer of color (didn’t we just have that discussion not once, but twice just in the last few months/days? Why yes, we sure did) in order to get the issue and its relationships into the national discussion, no matter what or how much was at stake.
That’s what institutionally sanctioned discrimination used as a sado-populist tool to divide the white working class from its class counterparts of color via psy ops use of #AspirationalRacism looks like.
Please take the Secretary’s request.
