It’s yet another muggy day here, and I’d like to catch a holiday nap, but I want to post for MLK Day. To do otherwise would be… Republican. Since the situation this year is the same but worse, I’m recycling last year’s lead article, because I don’t know how to improve it. Have a safe holiday.

From Media Matters: National Review’s Rich Lowry defends Trump’s racist comments as "common sense on immigration"
Lowry: "These countries he was referring to, they are basket cases. They are disaster areas"
Click through for video, if you dare. National Review is a standard Republican site. They aren’t even openly alt-right. Racism is just a Republican norm. RESIST!!
From NY Times: The bipartisan group of senators, including Mr. Durbin and Mr. Graham, reached an agreement last week that would provide a path to citizenship for DACA recipients while also providing money for border security and making other changes to immigration policy.
But Mr. Trump dismissed the proposal, calling it a “big step backwards.” And on Sunday, he offered a pessimistic take on Twitter, writing that DACA was “probably dead” and blaming Democrats. He kept up the finger-pointing when he spoke to reporters on Sunday night.
“We’re ready, willing and able to make a deal on DACA, but I don’t think the Democrats want to make a deal,” Mr. Trump said. “And the folks from DACA should know the Democrats are the ones that aren’t going to make a deal.”
When the Fuhrer says Democrats don’t want to make a deal, after they already made one in which they were giving up too much, he is lying. Trump is the one who refused that deal. He wants to blame Democrats unless we cave-in. RESIST!!
