Bright late-afternoon/early-evening Monday here on California’s north coast, closing another gorgeous episode of sunshine and warmth, but not too warm.
Good dog run this morning at Little River State Beach — fog bound at first, then burn-off near-perfectly for a nice time.
An opportunity to witness the T-Rump as an asshole douche in just a few moments of ABC News George Stephanopoulos’ interview — a cough ruins the flavor, upsets the orange baby-like turd:
Pres. Trump says he “might” turn over his “financial statement” to Congress.

This from TPM: ‘While it seemed like an neurotic response to an innocent background cough, Trump is reportedly notorious for scolding any cough-ers in his presence. According to the Washington Post, Trump’s 2016 team was well aware of this peculiar Trump tick and warned staffers never to cough or sneeze in Trump’s presence because he interprets it as a sign of weakness.’
Also this tweet at the link: ‘Text from former 2016 Trump campaign staffer: “I was told by multiple people when I came aboard to never cough or sneeze while in the presence of Trump. He thinks it’s a sign of weakness and lack of control. Nobody ever recovers.”‘
Will America recover?
