His last words.
The tributes start pouring in.
They even look alike.
They are both very important historical actors. Both rid of us vile kings that most people want to see gone.

Prosecutors charged Mr. Trump with 31 counts of violating the Espionage Act. The indictment details 31 highly classified documents that Trump has kept at his resort. They included information about the military and nuclear capabilities of foreign countries, White House intelligence briefings, a country’s support of terrorist attacks against the U.S., and U.S. military contingency planning.

My tears have been falling
A small, lonely cell
The future portends
A bracelet of gold
A monitor band
I’ll wear on my ankle
Cuz I’m indicted again
Jared Kushner and Ivanka Kushner walk out of the White House, and months later get $2 billion from the Saudis. You think it’s because he’s some kind of investing genius? Or do you think it’s because he was sitting next to the president of the United States for four years doing favors for the Saudis? That’s your money. That’s your money he stole and gave it to his family. You know what that makes us? A banana republic.
[A] lonely, self-consumed, self-serving mirror hog is not a leader.
Keep it coming.
“I was just another idiot running around the Capitol,” [Jessica Watkins] said.
Cornered by a tough question, Trump first gets surly, and then descends even more deeply into the sewer.
You’ve beaten me again
Just as my campaign begins to pick up steam
You’ve left me on the floor just like you did before
And even made me pay your legal team
You’ve beaten me again
Just when I begin my run for free world chief
I tried to litigate but once again cruel fate
Hath brought me naught but grief
Just a flesh wound, declares Jack Shafer, who titles his piece Rupert Wins Again.
Getting out from under all of that hurt for $787.5 million is a kind of bargain for a company with a market cap of $17.3 billion. Fox has $4.1 billion in cash and warrants on hand, says the New York Times... [Murdoch always pays] his way out of jams. The Dominion case and the similar Smartmatic case that awaits its place in the defamation docket, are not aberrations for Fox. It’s all a part of Murdoch’s way of doing business.
UD‘s got no doubt Murdoch, like his fellow slashed and amputated knights Berlusconi and Trump, remains a fully intact legend in his own mind. Smartmatic, just to take one of many lawsuits Rupert faces, demands 2.7 billion and will, you figure, get one billion. Doing the big math on Fox/Murdoch is always going to be tricky (he apparently spent 1.7 billion to get rid of his second wife), but even with a ton of assets the enterprise absurdly endlessly drains – and publicly humiliates – itself in what only a nut would call a winning strategy. Just for starters:
[T]he condemning depositions of Fox anchors and executives, admitting that they knew their stories were false and sources were ludicrous, opens Fox’s board to serious claims of negligence and breaches of fiduciary duty—violations of a board’s duty of care and duty of loyalty under Delaware corporate law.
But there’s so much more.
Fox just settled. Will we ever know how much money it had to fork over? UD‘s gonna guess it was something like half of what Dominion asked for. $800,000,000.
WHOA NELLIE. Swear I didn’t peek!!
‘[Kim Jong-Un is] top of the line. Really smart. As a young man at 24, even though he sort of inherits it, most people when they inherit it they lose it… He has total dominant control. That’s not easy.‘
… but everyone else has. UD assumes the paper of record wants to make ENTIRELY sure that Trump intends to sue Michael Cohen for five hundred million dollars onaccounta he shouldn’t have talked about Stormy Daniels.
