    This is the fight that he and his klan have been rooting for since the cops killed another black man. It doesn't only distract from the Trumpandemic; it allows Fox News, OAN and Trumpists in Congress to talk about Law and Order again. It lets them play a false-equivalency game. And they hope it leads to more black deaths.

    Neither was Trump or anyone around him, I'm sure (though they probably wouldn't have cared had they known). Trump has less historical awareness than most educated people, and most educated people don't have that much.

    I remember being surprised when people started talking about creating the Department of Homeland Security after 9/11. For anyone involved in foreign policy, the word homeland referred only to the territories that South Africa's apartheid government had established for different black ethnic groups while stripping their members of South African citizenship. The South Africans tried to convince the rest of the world that some of them had become independent countries. The word just wasn't used in any other context at the time, and it had a very negative connotation, even for those like me whose work had nothing to do with Africa. They were abolished in 1994 when apartheid ended, so almost everyone who was involved in establishing DHS would have been old enough to remember them, had they been aware of them in the first place. I was sure that someone would point out how tone-deaf it was -- sort of like the Reagan people using Born in the USA as a patriotic anthem, but even more so -- but I never heard anybody say a thing.

    If you complain about Trump's tweets
    They say TINMHITTMAL
    If Dems rig this election
    I'll say "then we're even, pal"
