A roundup of outrageous things happening in America today!
Trump Foundation’s IRS filings admit embezzlement.
The newspaper owned by Trump’s son-in-law would really like you to stop calling his Nazi supporters Nazis.
Yesterday, Trump said he didn’t mention his Scottish golf resort while speaking to Nigel Farage. Today, “I might have brought it up.”
Trump’s decision to split his time between DC and NYC costs NYC $1m/day in assisting the Secret Service.
Transition Team & Cabinet Members
Mike Flynn stands to profit from his position as national security advisor, if appointed.
After Jeff Sessions was not appointed as a judge in 1986, he retaliated against the men who accused him of racism by charging them with corruption.
Since the first creationist he asked to lead the Department of Education declined the job, Trump has moved on to a second one and offered Carson the HUD Secretary job instead.
Trump, today, on Bannon:
On Bannon:"If I thought he was a racist or alt-right or any of the things, the terms we could use, I wouldn't even think about hiring him."

Those weird voting results mentioned yesterday, among other things, have prompted computer security experts and election lawyers to press Clinton to ask for a recount in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.

Less graphic but even more offensive flyers have been posted at Oklahoma University.
Richard Spencer, the neo-Nazi who coined the term “alt-right” and was quoted on CNN yesterday asking if Jews are people, is scheduled to speak at Texas A&M University in a building named after a WWII general who later became the school’s most beloved president. It’s part of the Memorial Student Center complex, which is dedicated to students who died in war. Texas A&M sent more officers to WWII than the combined total of the US Naval and Military Academies.
Holy shit. Thanks for this. I’m not on tumblr, but I check some sites, and yours is one of them. I’m adding this to my daily list. There’s very little I can do from a small Northern European country, but I will do what can be done.

Is this a daily thing? Weekly thing? Or one-time thing? I need to keep up with all of this stuff but it is getting overwhelming.
Stephanie Leary says
Daily, if I can manage it.
