Some interesting plots that hatch in the face of rank stupidity Two major technical glitch events happened to the Trump team today. First, the poor schlub/Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who’s been tasked with trying to put a high-gloss sheen on Trump’s ratsh*t comments, apparently tweeted his Twitter password.

There was an enormous turnout in city after city for the March for Women today. WNBC is saying that NY saw 400,000 demonstrators. I was there and have been at ‘big’ NY demonstrations since the late 80’s, and I can tell you that this was orders of magnitude bigger than the big anti-war demos predating the […]
