iPhone : One’s repugnance at the spectacle of Lewandowski shouldn’t blind us to its significance. It was the essence of Trumpism: Not merely contempt for the truth or disdain for the law, but a kind of visceral loathing for the institutions and norms of a constitutional liberal democracy.

iPhone : I love that Roman Roy goes to one day of management training, meets one normal guy who seems fairly capable, and is convinced he’s discovered a “rough diamond.”

Twitter Web App : I think maybe the worst thing that could happen to a person is to go online and there are 5 Fast Facts about you on Heavy dot com.

iPhone : I lived with Kavanaugh at Yale.The FBI never returned my call.

Many were in the same place; they tried to get in contact with FBI, with no luck. Now GOP senators are claiming FBI report showed nothing they didnt already know. Bullshit

iPhone : So interesting. In this poll Warren leads among white people, even more among Hispanics—and is so far behind Biden among black people. Why? How much of that reticence/skepticism is not liking her and how much worrying she can’t beat Trump? twitter.com/stevekornacki/…

iPhone : “You have to say, ‘I’ve got a hell of a lot more to learn,’ and try to be open to learn it even if you’re trying to teach yourself. So I never think of myself as a professional, always as an amateur” Charles Santore. nytimes.com/2019/08/23/boo… via ⁦The New York Times

iPhone : Here’s Trump’s public schedule for tomorrow. He has added a border visit to his previously scheduled two fundraisers. (Presidents have used such events in part to charge a portion of their otherwise-explicitly-political travel to the public.)

iPhone : Hey Susan Wojcicki and TeamYouTube, how are you still hosting this virulently anti-Semitic video? Why is it so hard to keep hate off of your website?

Twitter Web App : Fun! Another Google/Scott McCloud comic, this one an intro to machine learning:


iPhone : Ok, so what should you know about the Facebooks Oversight Board?! What the heck is this thing, where did it come from, and why should you care about the documents they released today?
