Bloomberg: He's not as short as Trump is fat

Just saw this snl clip on MSNC. I want this bumper sticker!!

You just know that left a mark on the orange orangutan.

Same segment had new polls with Bloomberg the top candidate against Trump. I'm almost there.

Jury results

I've been on many juries. Was wondering about the jury results. How many jurists are there? What does it take for a post to be hidden? (majority, more than one vote or unanimous?) How does "not quite" options figure in the results? Are the results published anywhere? (would be interesting to see how my votes compared to the other votes)

READ THIS: Mueller Report for Non Lawyers

Now EVERYONE can read the Mueller Report!! (Trust me, I bought the real thing and I was overwhelmed and being a lay person, just could not read it)

But now here is a version for us Lay Persons!!


Editor's note

It feels as if nobody read the Mueller report. That's a shame, because it's an important document, depicting possible crimes by a sitting US president.

But not reading it makes sense. As a narrative, the document is a disaster. And at 448 pages, it's too long to grind through. For long stretches, it reads less like a story and more like a terms-of-service agreement. The instinct to click "next" is strong.

And yet, buried within the Mueller report, there is a narrative that reads in parts like a thriller, like a comedy, like a tragedy and, most important like an indictment. The facts are compelling, all the more so because they come not from President Donald Trump's critics or "fake news" reports, but from Trump's own handpicked colleagues and associates. The story just needed to be rearranged in a better form.

So we hired Mark Bowden, a journalist and author known for his brilliant works of narrative nonfiction like "Black Hawk Down," "Killing Pablo," and "Hue 1968."

Our assignment for him was simple. Use the interviews and facts laid out in the Mueller report (plus those from reliable, fact-checked sources and published firsthand accounts) to do what he does best: Tell a story recounting Mueller's report that's so gripping it will hold your attention (and maybe your congressional representative's).

We also hired Chad Hurd, an illustrator from the art department of "Archer." We asked him to draw out scenes from the report to bring them to life.

Here's what Bowden and Hurd gave us


Kamala Harris will be on the ticket

Either on the top of the ticket or bottom as Biden's VP. (Book it) She's too strong of a candidate to be anyone else's VP and has to be the front runner if Biden doesn't run. (Biden wins if he runs)
