Is there a tyrant among us? What would Shakespeare say? article from Yahoo! News. –
On the similarities of our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator to his hero:
“A cynical demagogue achieves the height of power through deceit and treachery, and proceeds to rule ruthlessly. Brooding, suspicious, and captive of his own angry whims, he dismisses or alienates the very allies who helped his rise, until he must face, virtually alone, the righteous retribution of those he has exploited and wronged.
Sound familiar? It should: It is the plot of one of Shakespeare’s best-known plays, Richard III, which also forms the heart of a new book by the scholar and Pulitzer-prize-winning author Stephen Greenblatt, Tyrant: Shakespeare on Politics. Any resemblance to current events or personalities is strictly intentional.
But why consult Shakespeare? What can he tell us about our own situation that we haven’t heard from, say, Rachel Maddow? Nothing explicit, certainly, given the vast difference between the leader of a 21st century republic and the rulers that Shakespeare, and Greenblatt, examine: 15th century English monarchs, Julius Caesar, and the quasi-legendary kings Macbeth and Lear. As Greenblatt stipulates in an interview: “Shakespeare is not great because he’s relevant; he’s relevant because he’s great. The immediate occasion [for writing the book] has to do with our current political climate. But not in a direct way. It’s absurd to think that someone writing 400 years ago is addressing contemporary American politics.”
Even so, contemporary American politics is the subtext of almost every chapter. If anything, the comparison between Richard and a certain American political figure — whose name does not appear in the book — is overdetermined. Here is how Greenblatt introduces Richard (the character, not the historical king): “He is pathologically narcissistic and supremely arrogant. He has a grotesque sense of entitlement, never doubting that he can do whatever he chooses. . . . He expects absolute loyalty, but he is incapable of gratitude. The feelings of others mean nothing to him. He has no natural grace, no sense of shared humanity, no decency.”…”

The Troubling Part of Rudy Giuliani’s Interview That Nobody Is Talkling About article from The Nation. –
Giuliani, like our Lord of the Lies, is actually ignorant enough to believe that the president is above the law:
“What Rudy Giuliani said in his two-day “media blitz” on behalf of his new client was so bizarre that even the client, Donald Trump, observed Friday that his lawyer “wasn’t totally familiar with everything.”
The president appeared to be trying to distance himself from Giuliani’s announcement that Trump had “funneled” money to attorney Michael Cohen as part of a scheme to pay off porn star Stormy Daniels just before the 2016 election. No surprise there, as that statement by Giuliani opened up an array of potential legal troubles for Trump, including, despite his new lawyer’s assertions to the contrary, an exploration of serious campaign-finance violations.
But the truly troublesome statement from Giuliani was one that Trump made no effort to walk back—and that undoubtedly influenced Trump’s talk about how his new lawyer is “a special guy” who “really understands that this is a witch hunt.” During what Sean Hannity referred to as the “really important” part of his astounding interview with the former mayor of New York, the Fox News host griped about special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe and “many congressional investigations” as he turned the discussion toward the prospect that the president might be subpoenaed…”

Follow the rubles article from The Week. –
To see the depths of Trump and his ilk’s corruption, simply follow the money:
“Sometimes a news organization reports the results of a major investigation and you immediately know the story, not just what happened but why and what it means. Other times, the investigation leaves tantalizing questions unanswered, which is what happened when The Washington Post published this story over the weekend about the curious finances of the Trump Organization. It tells the tale of a transformation in President Trump’s business that happened about a decade ago, one with no obvious reason behind it. There is an explanation, though, in a word that appears nowhere in the Post’s story: Russia.
Here’s where we start:
In the nine years before he ran for president, Donald Trump’s company spent more than $400 million in cash on new properties — including 14 transactions paid for in full, without borrowing from banks — during a buying binge that defied real estate industry practices and Trump’s own history as the self-described “King of Debt.”
Trump’s vast outlay of cash, tracked through public records and totaled publicly here for the first time, provides a new window into the president’s private company, which discloses few details about its finances…”

Giuliani’s smokescreen strategy smokes out Trump’s lies article from The Daily Kos. –
The more Giuliani talks the more foolish our nefarious narcissist looks:
“Donald Trump not only paid off Stormy Daniels to hush up about their affair, he may well have paid off others too through his conduit/fixer Michael Cohen, according to Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s voluble attorney.
“If it was necessary, yes,” Giuliani said Sunday of other possible hush-money agreements, adding that he had “no knowledge of that.”
So just to recap Giuliani’s big reveals on Trump’s hush-money deals over the last handful of days:
*Trump did in fact reimburse Cohen for the $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels
*Cohen may have paid off other women besides Daniels
*Trump knew about the payment to Daniels (though it’s unclear exactly when he became aware based on conflicting statements)…”

After Massive Gift to Rich, Trump Demands $7 Billion Cut to Child Health Insurance article from Truthout. –
After screwing over every tax paying U.S. citizen with his fraudulent tax reform scam, our Ignoramus-in-Chief wants to screw over children’s healthcare:
“Months after ramming through deficit-exploding tax cuts for billionaires and large corporations, President Donald Trump and the GOP are now looking for programs to slash to make up the difference — and they’re starting with children’s healthcare.
According to a Washington Post report late Monday, Trump is “sending a plan to Congress that calls for stripping more than $15 billion in previously approved spending,” $7 billion of which would come from the broadly popular Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
“Not much surprises me anymore in American politics. But this is despicable on every level,” wrote Rep. Barbara Lee in response to Trump’s proposed cuts. “But this is despicable on every level.”
The #GOPTaxScam gave a trillion dollars to billionaires & massive corporations. Now, Republicans want to gut the Children’s Health Insurance Program to pay for it.
Not much surprises me anymore in American politics. But this is despicable on every level. https://t.co/8KhY2xz4OM

More details on Trump’s corrupt involvement in his ongoing Cohen scandal:
“MSNBC’s Chris Hayes used the president’s own campaign-season rhetoric against him on Wednesday, rolling footage of then-GOP nominee Donald Trump falsely accusing Hillary Clinton of a pay-to-play scheme.
Little did we know at the time that Trump and his lawyer Michael Cohen were involved in the very same conduct they accused Hillary Clinton of in 2016 – taking money in exchange for access and influence.
