    A More Relaxing Ruckus: Click for something better than this sad adventure.

    If the question goes, "Is that his mom's fence?" ... and it is easy to falter there. If, then.

    What the question means is that a particular notorious celebrity has accomplished yet another self-inflicted wound of grievous stupidity, and it was over a year ago that I had occasion to wonder why every time I see news of someone, it's the kind of stupidity nobody is supposed to be taking seriously, in the first place; and in the moment, it was easy enough to observe that neither should the question be construed to suggest taking such manner of self-denigration seriously would be at all helpful.

    There is a joke about where he gets his coffee, because apparently liberals secretly admire Donald Trump. Oh, yeah, hey, there's the followup tweet, considering the question of leaving the self-inflicted to bleed for the sake of politics, and what that would mean about the psychological wellness of those around us.

    It's like the part where he scheduled a press conference to bring down a spotlight political figure with a sexual harassment complaint, and wound up accused of swindling their witness and forging her statement. Somewhere along the way tried to facilitate this bizarre scheme by inventing a fake intel firm, which could be tracked back to his mother's phone.

    Next, they had a legendary press conference at CPAC, with the whole thing falling apart because they didn't want to answer for their last disastrous scheme, and just for bonus a prior-gen rightwing conspiracist hoaxer showed up to yell at Twitter for banning her, resulting in CPAC banning her. Spectacle, certes, but still.

    Like the time Twitter suspended him for using fake accounts, which they figured out when he boasted of having created them.

    And as the FBI was investigating the sex harassment swindle he ran with a well-known GOP operative, he managed to film himself reporting to police death threats allegedly sent to him, including one from a fake Twitter account he created. That is, already under investigation for faking a sex harassment accusation, he faked a death threat against himself and reported it to police.

    And then ...

    (yes, really)​

    ... he and the GOP operative got caught on tape recruiting men to accuse Pete Buttigieg of sex assault.

    And for four months my Twitter feed has managed to say nothing about this person.

    Until today: For whatever reason, his latest stunt, as the tweet that reached me explained, is, "Pretending to travel the world but forgetting to pose in front of a different fence".

    And no, she ain't kidding.

    I wonder whose fence it is.

    And, sure, fake travel photos probably make a less-damaging pastime than, say, masterminding sex crime fantasies, which in turn is probably better than ... er ... never mind, that was prior-gen, inexplicable, and tangential.

    Nonetheless, at some point even we who cringe and criticize probably owe our human neighbor a genuine response: So, uh, dude, like, I mean, y'know … you okay?

    It's one thing to not pay attention, to not go looking for the intersection of whatshisname and unbearable stupidity, but the sad tales still find their way through, and if we are to doubt his competency, then at some point we must necessarily attend the fact of self-destructive behavior.

    For the moment, though, I haven't a clue what comes next.

    Yeah, five days.

    An arrest warrant for one count of unlawful sale of securities. Two and a half weeks ago. Now we know why he was pretending to be traveling abroad.

    its common to have a fraudster in the wings of a power broker or celebrity
    its the nature of money & power(just like stalkers are attracted to celebrity/politicians very attractive women..etc...)

    the vast majority of financial theft & fraud is done by family members to other family members

    the reality is that whatsherface trump aid torpedoed the entire tin foil hat anti biden big daddy white guy campaign by playing fast and loose
    funny really considering the Ego thing
    corrupted by power...

    now they will desperately be looking to validate criminal charges against biden brother at any expense to try and swing the narrative away from the truth of targeting family as a political electioneering process.

    Biden is white and penis and doesnt say much so he is perfect quality opposition to trump
    thats why they will be gunning for him
    the tin foil hats want new big daddy porn to be their iconography

    damn you sexy biech

    I ... I ... I just can't.

    Less than two hours away, though.

    One way or another, this ought to be impressive.

    Still, every time this lands in my twitfeed ... this better be real, or else family and friends really need to stage a hardline intervention.

    And that's the funny thing: If it's real?

    I don't quite get it, this time. To ostensibly attempt to smear an opponent in a way that might actually help that person?

    Which leads to the worst thing about it: If this is some sort of make-believe, which it almost assuredly is, the way in which it inflicts the intended harm will require some strangeness that only further denigrats the perpetrators. This really is a tragic freakshow, more than anything else.

    Anything short of truth represents at least one human being in crisis. The handler is another question, entirely.

    he is asking foreign governments to spy on his political rivals ?
    is that correct ?

    No, no. Last I saw, he was holding a press conference to present a patsy whose salacious crumb of a story was immediately busted by contradicting Instagram postings.
