If Trump gets impeached, convicted and removed from office — and Democrats take back the House in the elections this fall, as currently expected — Democrat Nancy Pelosi could become president. How about them apples?

In today’s UnPresidented podcast episode — snippet below — there’s a lot of focus on women: In addition to Pelosi and impeachment, we talk about the never-ending attacks on Hillary Clinton by the Republicans and the media; the lack of attention being played to a hugely important US House race in Arizona in which Democrat Hiral Tipirneni has a real chance for an upset in this traditionally-Republican seat; and another hand-holding snafu between Trump and Melania, who clearly doesn’t want to touch her husband with a ten-foot poll.

We also discuss Trump’s abominable behavior with French President Macron, and his embattled Veterans Affairs secretary nominee Ronny Jackson. Lots to unpack today.

This is an 8-minute snippet of the 70-minute episode, below. Premium patrons can listen to the entire episode here.

In today’s UnPresidented podcast episode, our guest is Neera Tanden, the president and CEO of the liberal think-tank Center for American Progress (CAP). You can listen below.

Neera talked to us for almost a full hour about Sean Hannity, James Comey, the 2016 election debacle, the Resistance, Democrats’ chances for winning the House in 2018 and the White House in 2020, impeaching Trump, working with Never-Trump conservatives, CAPs work against Trump, and much more.

Here’s a 13-minute excerpt, below — you can find the full hour-long interview here — and below that are some quotes I pulled from the interview:

Among the highlights:

On Fox News
“They are a propaganda arm of the Republican party.”

On James Comey
“He was fired because Trump was trying to limit the Russia investigation. My view of this is had he just said, ‘Look I made a mistake, I’m sorry,’ and moved on, it would have been fine. His own mistake was he rationalized his own decision, and there’s really no defense… He screwed up, he didn’t follow Department of Justice guidelines, he made his own unilateral decisions because of how he perceived politics at the time. It turns out he’s a terrible reader of politics and he shouldn’t have played pundit.”

“Comey was incredibly concerned about the political perceptions his actions would have. And how people would perceive what he’s doing. But the truth is, when you really unpack it, he only cared about the perceptions of the right…. He was shaped by the impact of the right-wing noise machine.”

On the Resistance
“We should remember who the resistance is, the new activists are really a lot college-educated women. It’s not just millennials, it’s not just ideologically hard-left. It’s a lot of, essentially, moms who are scared for the future of the country, for their children, and they’re getting involved in politics to take their country back.”

On how Liberals need to fight like Conservatives
“I think this is the asymmetric warfare that liberals and conservatives are engaged in every day. Conservatives are willing to use every tactic at their disposal to reach their political ends. And liberals are trying to be fair-minded in political discourse. This has some benefits too. We believe in good-government so that when we’re in government we’re actually competent. If this administration were more competent it would be far more damaging to the American people…. I think progressives need to recognize that we are in a street-fight for the soul of the country. We are not in an arm-chair chess match. We are in a street-fight. And we have to fight as hard as they do, and we have to use every tool that we can. We shouldn’t be evil, but we have to be really a lot tougher.”

On Trump being a traitor
“He acts like a traitor. My view of it is, I think it is beyond odd. I think it is very suspicious…. and evidence of some kind of Kompromat at play that on every issue Trump is an ‘America First’ person until it comes to Russia. It’s astounding on how every issue related to Russia he tries to be as weak as he can.”

On Impeachment
“[Trump] definitely colluded… If we find that Trump knowingly colluded to impact the election, he knew about Wikileaks or any other of the various strands in play, and then came into power. And then these actions to limit the impact of the government’s ability to effect Russia is because of this collusion, that would make him a traitor in my view.”

“I think that people [on the left arguing against impeachment] are making a huge mistake. This is really a legal question in front us. If Donald Trump has broken the law, I think he should be impeached. I think the Founders thought that if we have a president breaking the law they should be impeached.”

“If the special prosecutor makes a clear case that Donald Trump has broken the law, a lot of Republicans will recognize, just like eventually they did with Nixon, that they were in a fever-dream with a criminal. And I think that can also be a cathartic moment for a lot of people.”

On Mitch McConnell
“One of the many things that gave rise to Trump was the actions of Mitch McConnell…. I think what really gave rise to Trump is, a lot of people looking around saying ‘you know, I’m not doing so well, and Washington isn’t doing anything to solve it.’”

On being called a Corporate Democrat
“I went from being attacked as a communist and a socialist to a neoliberal corporate shill.”

On the importance of embracing Never-Trump conservatives
“Jennifer Ruben, David Frum, Bill Kristol. I have had knock-down drag-down fights with those folks during the Obama years. I had major battles on health care, and taxes, and the whole range of issues. But look, at the end of the day, if I’m going to argue to my friends on the left that we have an existential threat in front of us, and we could stop taking our pitchforks and sticking them into each other … I don’t need to agree with every one of David Frum’s views on the world to say that it’s important to have republicans make the critique of Trump…. Let’s eliminate the assault on democracy, and the impact of a possible traitor, and then I’m happy to argue tax policy with any of these people.”

Neera also discusses CAP’s role in the upcoming elections and the resistance overall, and CAP’s upcoming Ideas conference. It’s a really interesting interview, hope you enjoy.

In today’s premium podcast episode, Cliff and I talk about the Comey book, and all of the accompanying scandals that fed into it this week, including the FBI raid on Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen, reports that a Trump Tower doorman was paid hush money to squelch a rumor about Trump fathering a child out of wedlock, rumors of Rod Rosenstein’s imminent firing, and the pardoning of Bush-era criminal Scooter Libby.

But the big topic is the Comey book, which is already driving Trump crazy. The Trump governance crisis is at an all -time high. What happens next? That’s the topic of today’s pod. (And at the end we also talk about Paul Ryan’s announcement that he’s not running for re-election, and we discuss what it means for the 2018 elections.)

GOP political consultant Rick Wilson joins us in today’s premium episode of our UnPresidented Podcast for a long talk about Donald Trump and the danger he poses to the Republican party and the long-term survival of the republic.

You can hear a 13-minute free clip of the interview just below, and the entire 75-minute interview with a premium subscription ($5/month or more) to our podcast. I’ve also transcribed some of the best quotes from this episode below.

Among the podcast highlights….

Rick Wilson on Michael Cohen’s FBI raid: “It couldn’t happen to a nicer douchebag… this guy is so eminently punchable.”

Rick on the 2018 elections: “Democratic voters will crawl over broken glass to vote against Donald Trump’s friends.”

Rick on what GOP Senators will, and should, do if Trump fires Mueller: “Believe me, they won’t do a damn thing. They will not do a damn thing. Nothing will happen. “

Rick on how GOP members of Congress really hate Trump: “A lot of the ones that hate him are publicly the most red-hat wearing, chest beating, MAGA, ‘build the wall’ people you see out there. They hate him. They fear him, they loathe him, they hate their voters because of him. They hate him because they know they basically sold out their conservative principles.”

What Rick recently told a GOP Senator complaining about Trump’s attacks on Mueller: “You guys have to all get together and send him a f*cking letter that says ‘Dear Mr. President, if you remove Robert Mueller from office, we in the United States Senate Republican caucus will take up articles of impeachment when they are sent to us from the House and will proceed with convicting you.”

Rick on the damage Trump is doing to our country: “We’re going to have generational damage from what Trump is doing. He’s broken what the presidency means as a leader for the country. He’s broken the moral stature of the presidency. He’s broken the belief that the president will adhere to the Constitution and the rule of law. He’s moved from being the leader of the Free World to somebody who at best is the bullsh*tter of the Free World with a love of authoritarians. I think there’s a lot of damage he’s done to the American brand.”

Rick when asked if Donald Trump is a traitor: “I believe that Donald Trump has put the national interest of Russia above the national interest of the United States repeatedly. And by any definition I think that’s traitorous.”

Rick on why Trump is the worst president ever: “Even our worst presidents, none of them were willing to burn down the republic for their own ego… If Trump were impeached and convicted, he wouldn’t leave the White House. He would dig in and make them pull him out of there like a tick on the back of a hog, it would not be pretty.”

Rick also called Trump “a gigantic c*cknozzle,” and discussed his upcoming book: “Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican consultant gets real about the worst president ever.”

It was a wild interview, with a lot of laughs, and a lot of sobering discussion of where our country is heading. I hope you enjoy this as much as we did.

The reboot of Roseanne Barr’s eponymous show “Roseanne” has caused a bit of controversy, not just in that both the real-Roseanne and her fictional TV character are both Trump supporters, but in the way that Roseanne is whitewashing Trump’s bigotry on the show.

That’s the argument that author Jared Yates Sexton makes in our latest UnPresidented Podcast, below, and it’s quite compelling. (Jared got into a Twitter-fight with Roseanne after she read his criticism, and wasn’t amused.)

ROSEANNE

We had a fascinating, almost 90-minute discussion with Jared, about Roseanne, but also his theory about how “toxic masculinity” undergirds much of Trump’s appeal, and much of the damage Trumps is causing our country. That then took us into a larger conversation about Jared’s theory of “the knot” that plagues much of America — as Jared puts it: “The idea that over time, all of our problems become interconnected [like one big knot]. And you don’t even know where to start, there’s no idea of which strand to start tugging. It’s gender, it’s race, economics, world views, money and politics.”

That led us into a discussion of: Trump’s election; Obama’s re-election in 2012 and whether a black man winning the presidency was an aberration or a sign of hope; Jared’s take on the “Alt Right”; and then a rather interesting discussion of whether the Internet has been a force for good or bad (Jared thinks more bad than good). Jared also talks about his most recent book, “The People Are Going to Rise Like the Waters Upon Your Shore: A Story of American Rage,” and its themes permeate the entire podcast discussion.

And finally, we close with Jared telling us a hilarious anecdote about his rural Indiana mom and the stray chicken she just adopted.

It was a really fun, interesting interview. I hope you’ll listen to the 15-minute excerpt about Roseanne, then become a premium subscriber to our podcast for as little as $5/month to unlock the rest of the interview with Jared, and our other premium episodes, like our blockbuster interview with national security expert Malcolm Nance.

(As always, a podcast is simply audio – like a radio show – that you listen to on your computer, tablet or phone.)

In our latest podcast episode, Cliff and I discuss the impact of monopoly media on America, from Sinclair Broadcast Group forcing its local anchors to read a partisan pro-Trump script about “fake news,” to the wildly-successful boycott of Fox News’ Laura Ingraham and the danger that Fox poses as a propaganda organ of one political party.

We also discuss Trump’s tragic photo shoot at the White House Easter Egg hunt, in which Melania and the Easter Bunny appear to be unwilling hostages, the latest election news (still great for Democrats), and the NRA’s weird new ad campaign about lemons and crying.

Cliff Schecter and I recently spoke with former intelligence officer, and national security expert, Malcolm Nance about his upcoming new book, “The Plot to Destroy Democracy,” and his shocking claim that both Donald Trump and Jared Kushner have already been compromised by foreign intelligence services.

You can listen to a 10-minute excerpt of Malcolm’s blunt words here:

Malcolm tells us that Trump “has been involved with Russian operatives with regards to this election since 2012… he is a witting asset”; that Putin became “the leader of the global conservative movement” by “coopt[ing] all of Europe and the American Republican party via the NRA, Evangelicals and the Alt Right — they own the hard core base of the Republican party now”; and why he believes that “Jared Kushner is a compromised person.”

It’s a great, and disturbing, interview that we know you’ll enjoy. Again, you can listen to a free 10-minute clip above, and you can hear the entire hour-long interview with Malcom here by becoming a premium subscriber to the UnPresidented Podcast, for only $5/month.

With all the news this week about how Facebook basically helped Donald Trump and the Russians steal our election, I decided to download my own Facebook data and see what Facebook has on me.

It was a disturbing experience.

You can download the data easily enough. Follow these instructions, and you should receive the data in a half hour or so.

You’ll receive a zip file that you can open, and then click into the folder with your name on it, and you’ll find something like the following:

Click on index.htm, and it should open a Web page that will be your starting point to explore what information Facebook has on you. Then just click the links on the left side of the page.

Here’s a list of what they had on me:

1. Profile.

That’s simple enough. And expected. Facebook has everything I’ve written about myself in my profile.

2. Contact info.

This one was rather disturbing. Facebook has the names and phone numbers of everyone in my iphone. That includes friend, dates, and doctors. I don’t want Facebook to have a list of my doctors, so that someone can easily ever-engineer what’s going on with my health. How did Facebook get this information? I had synced my iphone with my Facebook page, in order to fill in the information in my address book. I had no idea I was literally handing my entire address to Facebook for keeps.

Wait a minute, why does Facebook have my cell phone? And they’re giving it to advertisers?!

3. Timeline.

Facebook has every single thing you’ve ever written on your timeline. While that’s expected, it’s also really creepy looking back at things you wrote in 2008, and realizing someone has a file of everything.

4. Photos.

Yep, they kept every photo you’ve ever published.

5. Videos.

Ditto

6. Friends.

A list of all of your Facebook friends.

7. Messages.

Okay, this one creeped me out. Facebook has a copy of every message you ever sent to anyone on Facebook. And for all I know, they’re sharing it with the highest bidder. Did you ever discuss your health with anyone on Facebook? Ever discuss sex? Ever discuss any confidential work issues? Every discuss your health? Ever discuss anything personal and confidential that you don’t want to sold to the highest bidder?

Okay, these are Facebook chat discussions. Wow. They’ve kept every chat you’ve ever had, gone back a decade or more. Wouldn’t law enforcement, a divorcing spouse, or just someone suing you love to have access to that.

8. Pokes, events.

9. Security.

There’s a lot of weird geeky stuff here, such as capturing IP addresses I’ve used, and locations I’ve been at when using them.

10. Ads.

This one is fun. It shows a list of every advertiser who nows have my contact info. Here’s my list:

11. Applications.

Simply a list of any applications I’ve linked to Facebook.

I’m pretty creeped out now, and I have no idea how to get rid of this data. Even deleting Facebook entirely, which I can’t do because of my work, there’s no guarantee it will delete your data (I’ll bet it doesn’t). How do I unlink my phone? And it doesn’t matter anyway, Facebook already has my entire address book and all my doctors and everyone else.

This is far creepier than I expected.

Cliff and I had the pleasure and honor of interviewing leading gun control advocate Shannon Watts, the head of Moms Demand Action, about the upcoming March for Our Lives anti-gun rally (taking place this Saturday, March 23, in communities across America), and more generally the state of the gun control movement.

Shannon is brilliant, amazing and inspiring. One of the things I most enjoyed about talking to Shannon is her positivity. I never fully appreciated how many successes the gun safety/gun control movement has had in the past several years, and Shannon set me straight. It’s a great and hopeful interview. I think you’ll really enjoy it, and learn a few things about gun politics along the way.

In addition to specific topical issues like reciprocity, concealed carry, and whether the NRA is really 10 feet tall (spoiler alert: Shannon says they’re not), we also talk a good deal about the upcoming March for Our Lives, taking place around the US on Saturday, March 24th.

Here’s a 15-minute snippet of the podcast interview:

David Frum — a vocal Trump critic, former Bush White House official, Atlantic senior editor, and author of the new book “Trumpocracy: The corruption of the American republic” — is our guest on today’s episode of the UnPresidented Podcast.

In this premium episode, David talks to us about Conor Lamb’s stunning election victory in Pennsylvania the other night, the wisdom of impeaching Donald Trump, Watergate compared to Trump/Russia, Iraq in retrospect, the nature of truth, the danger authoritarian kleptocracies pose to America and the world, and how Canada has effectively regulated guns. It was a fascinating interview, I think it will give you a lot to think about.

Here’s a 15-minute snippet in which David talks about the Conor Lamb election and what it means for other congressional races in November.

Spoiler alert: The Dem wave is now real! (And no, the results aren’t official yet in PA, but we’re confidently optimistic that Lamb has this.)

Russia has escalated its efforts to start a new Cold War with the West by recklessly poisoning a former Russian spy, his daughter, and a police detective in Great Britain.

This comes on the heels of the Russians trying to kill US troops in Syria (that one backfired on them badly), and it’s clear that Vladimir Putin has been enabled by Donald Trump’s and Theresa May’s feckless policies of appeasement. That’s our big story of the day in today’s UnPresidented Podcast.

We also talk about the nail-biter US House election taking place tomorrow (Tuesday, March 13) in Pennsylvania; more corruption concerns about Donald Trump Jr. and his sister Ivanka; and about former Trump official and Alt Right leader Steve Bannon’s trip to a fascist conference in France.

Advice columnist and LGBT advocate Dan Savage joins us for a wide-ranging conversation about politics, sex, and everything in between.

This episode is definitely not-safe-for-work.

We talk to Dan about conservative dating advice, Donald Trump, Dan’s fear of the Titanic, the gun debate, the Mueller Trump-Russia probe, chariot racing (don’t ask), Oscar pervertibles (don’t ask), monogamy, kink, and the intersection of sex and politics.

And we’re proud to announce that we’re joining Dan in a new project announced during the podcast: OnlyMerrick.com, a new effort to take back the Supreme Court seat the Republican stole from Merrick Garland.

It was a hilarious, and sometimes-serious, hour that we think you’ll really enjoy. We know we did. You can listen below:

In 6 days, on March 13, there will be a special US House of Representatives election in Pennsylvania, at which the next US congressman from Pennsylvania will be chosen. And Republicans are freaking.

Axios reported on Monday that top Republicans in Washington have already given up on the seat, which Democrat Conor Lamb should NEVER be able to win — the district is THAT Republican.

And CNN just reported, minutes ago, that they’ve been contacted by multiple congressional Republicans who think the race is lost, and who blame it on Donald Trump!

Donate to Conor Lamb here, and let’s steal this seat from the Republicans next Tuesday March 13.

As I said, we should not be competitive in these traditionally-Republican seats, but this is the age of Trump, and (fortunately) the GOP is setting itself up for an electoral disaster this fall. We’ve already seen ample evidence of a Blue Wave, from our surprise US Senate victory in Alabama (Alabama!), to almost winning control of the Virginia House of Delegates a few months ago, something else that no one had predicted was even possible.

This is an election year of impossible possibilities. In 2016, the impossible was Donald Trump winning the presidency. But now, thank God, the shoe is on the other foot, and Democrats are winning races they simply should not be able to win. That presents us with an unprecedented opportunity. It also teaches us an important lesson. No matter how bad the odds, don’t assume we can’t win. Politics is the art of the possible — and the bad guys win when we assume the results in advance, whether it’s that we’re going to win or lose. Nothing is set in stone until the last person votes.

As an aside, don’t underestimate how important it is to take back the House. Democrats will then have subpoena power. We will finally have real investigations of what Trump did with Russia (beyond the Mueller probe). Trump sycophants like Devin Nunes will lose their committee chairmanships, and no longer be able to defend Trump. And if we get the Senate, we control Supreme Court appointments, judges, administration appointees and more. It is HUGELY important that we take back Congress if we want to stop Donald Trump.

One more thing. While Conor Lamb’s election is next week — and please do donate if you can, and share this donation link on social media (Facebook & Twitter): https://secure.actblue.com/donate/lambablog  But after next Tuesday, we all have another job. To start supporting other Democratic candidates for the fall, and do it early. These folks need money NOW. Not just in the last few weeks before the election, but now. So when you see appeals going out for specific candidates, if you can afford to help, please do.

Speaking of which, here are a few other of our AMERICAblog Action endorsed candidates/races for the fall. If you can, please support them. They’re all great candidates. We’ll be adding to the list as time goes on.

***US House
Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11 open seat)
Veronica Escobar (TX-16 open seat)
Andrew Janz (CA-22, running against Devin Nunes)
Randy Bryce (WI-01, running against Paul Ryan — Ryan is actually in danger)
Eventual Democratic Nominee (CA-48, taking on Dana Rohrabacher — Rohrabacher is also in danger)

***US Senate
Kyrsten Sinema (Arizona open seat)
Beto O’Rourke (Texas, running against Ted Cruz)
Jacky Rosen (Nevada, running against Dean Heller — Heller is seriously vulnerable)

***State races
Zach Wahls (IA-37th State Senate District. Zach is a longtime LGBT advocate who famously gave a speech before the Iowa legislature at age 19 about his two moms. You really have to see this video, if you’re not familiar. More on Zach here.)

And be sure to check out our latest podcast, about sexism at the Oscars, bigotry at the Women’s March, some great election news, and we also go off on that goofball Sam Nunberg. Later this week, we’ll be interviewing Dan Savage, in what was definitely a fun episode.

Thanks, JOHN

Women are a big topic of today’s podcast, with a discussion of sexism in Hollywood; and then a look at the controversy swirling around the Women’s March and its odd affinity for racist anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.

In the second half of the show, Cliff and I have a good laugh over the news that former Trump campaign staffer Sam Nunberg says he’s going to refuse to respond to FBI Special Counsel Mueller’s subpoena; and we conclude with some really good news about the growing Democratic wave in the 2018 election.

The House GOP Intelligence committee has finally released the Democratic memo about Trump’s collusion with Russia, Carter Page, and the Steele (aka Pee Pee) memo. Let’s pull out some of the good stuff.

The Dem memo confirms that “the FBI assessed [Trump campaign top foreign policy aide Carter Page] to be an agent of the Russian government.”

That doesn’t sound good.

The FBI did not use Steele’s dossier as justification for beginning the Russia probe, which started in July 2016. The FBI didn’t get Steele’s memo until mid-September, 7 weeks AFTER the probe was begun.

The initial FISA warrant to spy on Page was granted by a GOP-appointed judge, and then renewed by 3 different judges — four different federal judges in total — all appointed by GOP presidents. They were Republican judges who approved spying on Page.

Page had already left the Trump campaign by the time the FBI got the warrant to eavesdrop on him. So there was not tapping of the Trump campaign.

The FBI corroborated parts of the Steele dossier, and presented that to the FISA court, but that’s such a secret it got blacked out in the memo. Oh yeah, and the evidence corroborating Steele contradicts what Carter Page told the House Intelligence Committee.

As we suspected, the FISA court renewed the wiretap on Carter Page 4 times because it kept yielding useful information. The info was so useful that it got censored from the Democratic memo.

Devin Nunes lied. The FBI told the FISA court all about Steele, and that the memo was paid for by people who wanted “to discredit” Trump’s campaign. And DOJ never paid Steele for the dossier — Nunes lied about this.

And Nunes lied about the Yahoo news story. Nunes claimed the DOJ used the Yahoo story as proof of the Steele dossier. No. The article was used to quote Page’s denials of secret Moscow meetings, which makes the meetings all the more suspect.

And finally, those FBI lovebirds with the texting fetish had zero to do with the FISA warrant. Nunes lied about that too.

Some interesting footnotes. First of all, I’m still shocked that the Trump campaign didn’t go the FBI the second they were told the Russians had stolen “thousands” of Hillary’s emails. That’s un-American, un-patriotic behavior.

Nor did the Trump campaign go to the FBI a few months later when they saw the news go public that, in fact, Hillary’s emails HAD been stolen, just as the Russians had an intermediary tell Papadopoulos. How do you not THEN call the FBI?

Bottom line: Four Republican federal judges found sufficient evidence that former top Trump campaign foreign policy aide Carter Page was acting as a Russian agent, to issue a FISA warrant permitting the FBI to spy on him. And, they received useful info during that spying.

And for some reason, Devin Nunes and Donald Trump and Paul Ryan don’t want you to know that one of Trump’s former top foreign policy aides was credibly suspected of working for the Russians. You do the math.

PS Trump is worried, he just tweeted:

This story, first published years ago, was inspired by some American mass-shooting long-forgotten. Sadly, we are forced to republish it on a regular basis.

It’s time to have a somber national discussion about the [insert shooting tragedy here] tragedy.

Before we get started, let’s go over a few basic ground rules.

1. In the wake of the __________ tragedy, it’s time for us all to come together as a nation and not assign blame. This is not the time, for example, to talk about how it’s easier to purchase a gun in America than it is to vote (or buy French cheese). I fact-checked the graphic below, it’s for real:

GUNS-CHEESE

And I quote White House spokesman Jary Carney, speaking about the murder at Sandy Hook school in Newtown, Connecticut of at least 18 young children:

“I’m sure [there] will be rather a day for discussion of the usual Washington policy debates,but I don’t think today is that day,” Carney said.

Fortunately, the President’s subsequent statement was better.

2. And we won’t tolerate any second guessing of the Second Amendment right to carry assault weapons, or questions about how the Framers could have possibly envisaged an assault rifle over 200 years ago, or why a “hunter” needs six thousand rounds of ammunition, or kevlar, or smoke grenades to kill a pheasant.

Open Carry gun owner at JC Penney store in Utah

Open -carry gun owner at JC Penney store in Utah. What could possibly go wrong?

3. While the shooter may have been inspired by political fliers showing the victim in cross hairs, or may have come unhinged by inflammatory rhetoric about how said victim was coming for the shooter’s guns, discussing such motivation at this sensitive moment would be completely inappropriate. Not to mention, disrespectful to the __________ victims.

Sarah Palin showed US Rep. Gabby Giffords' district in crosshairs shortly before Giffords was shot in the head and nearly killed in an assassination attempt.

Sarah Palin showed US Rep. Gabby Giffords’ district in crosshairs shortly before Giffords was shot in the head and nearly killed in an assassination attempt.

4. If the tragedy involved someone flying a plane into a government building, or for that matter blowing up a government building, now is not the time to discuss people like Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity (no names, please), or Republicans generally (no political parties, please), incessantly trying to convince their audience that the occupant of the White House, or any government official, agency, or entire branch of government is evil and/or “un-American” and/or out to get them or our country or our freedom.

5. And definitely don’t mention the Republican party’s frequent claim and/or insinuation, including suggestions from the GOP candidate himself, Mitt Romney, that the sitting Democratic President is a socialist, which in American parlance actually means “communist,” which actually means “Soviet,” which was America’s deadliest enemy out for our utter destruction.

Sure, it would be entirely understandable why someone would take up arms against a Soviet takeover of the United States, but a Democrat said something mean once about a Republican’s dog, or something, so aren’t both parties really to blame, thus making the charge moot?

6. Never, ever mention the NRA.  Sure, they’ve proven themselves, time and again, incapable of passing laws that effectively keep guns out of the hands of crazy mass murderers, but that’s no reason to blame them for the _______ tragedy because it’s just too early to cast blame on anyone other than the shooter, who was obviously crazy, and thus this month’s anomaly.

Now, let’s discuss for a moment the race of the shooter and the race of the victims.

7. If the ______________ tragedy involved angry white men opening fire on brown people of faith, this is definitely not the time to replay clips of bombastic commentators and politicians getting white men in places like Kansas whipped into a frenzy over Manhattan’s zoning criteria for non-Christian houses of worship.

8. But feel free to discuss if all brown people, and thus the shooter, or his victims, were Muslims – sorry, I meant to say “radical Islamists.”  And even if neither was a Muslim, make sure you discuss that point incessantly – Muslim, Muslim, Muslim, Muslim – so as to eventually sow suspicion in the public’s mind as to whether there really is a Muslim angle to this story.

9. Speaking of which, this is not the time to discuss the more general fear mongering around words like “Muslim,” including the ongoing, successful, attempt by Republicans to convince their base that our dark-skinned President is one.

Okay, I think we’re ready now to discuss the ______________ tragedy.

First off: It is entirely acceptable for a Republican to opine that the tragedy could have been averted had the victims all been armed (please disregard previous tragedies where armed police officers, or members of the military, were themselves injured by the shooter).

Second: Poignant, but ultimately meaningless, gestures such as lighting tragedy candles at nighttime vigils, and posting anti-gun petitions on Change.org, are to be encouraged.

Finally: Clutch your pearls, and all together now, ask the purely rhetorical question: “How could this happen?”

Forty-eight hours after the shooting, return to talking about the Olympics and the latest Kardashian wedding until the next shooting occurs, then refer to point 1 above.

PS: If the victims of the ___________tragedy were black, ignore the above restrictions and take up a collection for the shooter’s defense fund.

New video seems to show that Trump is as bald as Darth Vader.

And while none of us actually care, Trump cares, a lot, about his own appearance, and more importantly, about mocking the appearance of others, especially women. So, today we care too.

But more importantly, the guts of today’s episode deals with the budget deal just reached by Democrats and Republicans in the Senate; and a new article in the Atlantic, by two conservatives, calling on Republicans to boycott any candidate with an R after their name in 2018. Also, we talk about the stunning election news from Missouri, and what it portends for the congressional elections this coming November.

All that and more in today’s episode of my UnPresidented Podcast, below.
