DEFUND THE FBI?
I am by no means the first to note that when the FBI was investigating Hillary’s emails, Trumpers chanted “lock her up” . . . but now that the FBI is investigating Trump’s theft of documents, they chant “defund the FBI.”
There was a time Republicans saw Russia as an anti-American, undemocratic security threat. As Democrats still do. (Hillary was truculent in her opposition to Putin, a journalist-murdering KGB thug.)
And despite his view, shared with Stalin, that the press is the enemy of the people.
In their view, Trump — and those he has pardoned — are simply above the law. If he likes Russia, they like Russia. If he walks down Fifth Avenue shooting people, they probably deserved it.
THE REPUBLICAN PLAN FOR CLIMATE CHANGE
Taking Texas as a prime example: they don’t have one. (“Texans face greater risk of heat, drought and hurricanes, but Abbott administration has no plan to tackle future threats of climate change.”)
It’s quite similar to their plan to end inflation (they don’t have one) and their plan for replacing Obamacare (they don’t have one of those, either).

Quote of the Day
Castro asked, 'Tell me friends, which of you is an economist?' I thought he had said 'Which of you is a communist?' so I immediately said 'I am.' At which he said, 'OK, you handle the economy.'~Che Guevara's story of how he became the head of the National Bank of Cuba in 1959, as recounted by Andrei Gromyko
