So apparently we don't have any ambassadors right now?

What, did they defect?

Most Ambassadors are just political appointees rewarded with paid-for sex vacations. As long as the actual State Department officials are still on the job I'm not too worried.

Thanks Sprinkles.

Seems like a lot of hot air and politicizing. Obama did the same thing in 08

It's not that the Ambassadors were called home. Calling on appointed Ambassadors to vacate and come home by the Inauguration date is common. It's how long they were given to pack up and move out.  Reports of Obama's notice came on December 3, 2008 for "earlier this week." So it would've been either December 1 or 2, since the 3rd was a Wednesday. That gave Ambassadors seven weeks notice. It's not a whole lot of time to give someone who has to pack an entire household, arrange plane tickets, take your kids out of school, and give your entire staff notice that they're about to be out of work, and fly back to the USA and set up housekeeping back home. But it's still amost two months. Trump gave the directive December 23. Less than a month notice.

He's also just executive-ordered some people out of being able to afford to buy a new home this year. The FHUD rate was scheduled to be reduced this month and he repealed the reduction.

He's also selected a woman who has zero experience in public education - not as a student, or a mother of a student, or as a teacher, or administrator - to be in charge of the education of our country's children. The same woman whose brother is the founder of Blackwater - the agency responsible for firing into a crowd of civilians in Iraq, leading into further destabilization of that country. The same woman who sincerely believes that there should be guns in schools to defend against grizzly bears.

His pick for the guy in charge of our nation's money? A man who was neck-deep in one of the worst bank scandals this country has ever experienced, that helped push our country into a recession almost as bad as the Depression.

It's as though our new president is TRYING to ruin our country. It is as though he WANTS people to suffer, and is doing everything he is authorized to do, to ensure that it happens. It's almost as if he is really working hard to make America an embarrassment, a black stain on the global map and on world history. He wants to say "Yes, our country is young - therefore immature - and therefore I need to be an immature leader. So here I am, neener neener."

I suspect that, at the very least, he's trying to ruin faith in the Federal Government.

To be completely fair I want people to suffer too. Especially his voters. Human beings are consequence-driven animals and it's time folks had some fucking consequences laid on them for allowing this idiocy.

Copied and pasted text of the website to a flash drive. Because I don't trust the new regime to safeguard freedom of the press and worry they'll make the Times delete it.

Good luck to us all, comrades.

There's this thing called archive.org - you can't 'delete' stuff from the internet.

tbh, as the President of the United States understands the internet, you can just call Bill Gates or the Zuck and have them delete something for you.

In spite of readily available evidence to contest his bullshit, the President of the United States says upwards of a million people attended his inauguration, and that it was the most viewed ever.

Los Angeles was insane today. Between 500,000 and 750,000 people when organizers were estimating 80,000. Cops were courteous and cool and the LAPD twitter account is reporting that no arrests were made.

While I wasn't there, all of my lady friends were. My wife and I had to go to a baby shower. But I donated to Planned Parenthood in honor of it.

I'm not sure if it's more funny or sad that Trump's outrageous statement smokescreen strategy hasn't stopped working. I don't wanna get all wake up sheeple but holy shit Trump can play the media.

I heard a rumour that CNN has made the editorial decision not to carry White House pressers live or complete. They need time to fact check.

Good for them.

"American carnage" is exactly what these first few days have felt like.  Trump thinks of himself as a builder, a creater, but so far he's done nothing but destroy.  Remove mortgage support for low-income families, cut arts funding, slash science funding, hack away at healthcare, and freeze federal hiring and pay raises.  There's no building.  There's no job creation.  There's not even TALK about anything constructive, just more fucking whining about the media and lying about crowd sizes, CIA feud, and popular vote results.

It's like watching a rabid hyena tear bloody chunks out of a living buffalo who is still standing but too tired and wounded to fight back.
