OK, it wasn't a very bold prediction, but as you can see in the picture for this article, I sure did call it that SNL would have "Sean Spicer" hiding in the bushes...
All in all, it was a slightly less funny than usual "Spicey" by the brilliant Melissa McCarthy, punctuated by a really pushing-the-limits encounter between SNL's version of the White House Press Secretary and their version of Donald Trump (Alec Baldwin.)
This Friday tweet by President Trump has a lot of people worrying, wondering, complaining, and making comparisons to Watergate.
It relates to President Trump contradicting media reports from unnamed friends of former FBI Director Comey who say that Trump asked Comey to pledge loyalty to him.
James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 12, 2017
A massive cyber attack has infected tens of thousands of computers, though mostly not in the United States. The interesting/scary part of this is that it's possible the "worm" was originally created by the NSA and then released by a contractor. The NSA won't confirm the source of this code, but experts do believe that this is what happened.
I've said for some time that my two least-favorite Trump appointees are Jeff Sessions and Mike Flynn. The latter is gone. The sooner Sessions goes, the better, but I don't see anything on the horizon which will cause him to leave. In the meantime, the nation suffers under his retrograde troglodyte form of conservatism. This time, it's about restarting the worst aspects of the drug war.
