Maybe if you'd been a Russian troll this wouldn't have happened.  You're supposed to steal identities, not create obviously fake ones.

Yeah, it's resurfaced.  May or may not be relevant, I guess.

I guess I'll stay away from tv news for a couple days.  Even msnbc usually gets happy and bubbly about missile strikes.

Facebook won't say if he had access to the CA data or if he's been told to delete it.

The only positive I really see to all this is that the talk about Zuckerberg thinking about a run in 2020 has completely dried up.

Trump plans to send the military to guard the border until he gets his fence.

e have very bad laws for our border, and we are going to be doing some things -- I've been speaking with General Mattis -- we're going to be doing things militarily," Mr. Trump said at the White House, seated beside the defense secretary at a meeting with visiting leaders of Baltic nations. "Until we can have a wall and proper security, we're going to be guarding our border with the military. That's a big step. We really haven't done that before, or certainly not very much before."

Obama and Bush both sent national guard troops to the border.

Is it crazy that I think this could be an improvement over having ICE/CBP patrolling the border in terms of lives lost and human suffering?

Trump was issued a court summons yesterday for a lawsuit about the emoluments clause.

A summons has been issued to President Trump in a lawsuit alleging he is violating the emoluments clause of the Constitution.

The lawsuit -- filed by the attorneys general in Washington, D.C., and Maryland -- alleges that Trump is violating the clause, which prevents elected officials from receiving gifts or benefits from foreign governments without Congress's approval, WAMU reported.

The lawsuit is filed against Trump in his "official capacity and in his individual capacity," according to the Washington, D.C., radio station.

The lawsuit also argues that businesses in Maryland and D.C. have been hurt because groups instead choose to stay at Trump's properties in attempts to get in his good favor.

Last year, a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit from a liberal watchdog organization arguing that Trump was violating the emoluments clause of the Constitution.

Chaz Rainey, the attorney representing Wilson, said that he plans to appeal the decision. "We live in a world where having a medical marijuana card is enough to say you don't get a gun, but if you're on the no fly list your constitutional right is still protected," he told the AP. He argued that there should be more consistency in how the Second Amendment is applied.

but...muh guns...
