Very Trumpian of him.
On the other hand, he's been hard at work legislating. Voted on five bills in the last Congress even while waiting to be sworn in for the one he was elected to.
A Jack of all trades, master of none - Gay-ish, Jew-ish, Black-ish, White Supreme-ish ?
It's batshit crazy and embarrassing for sure after all the uproar over the documents Trump absconded with. On the other hand, Biden hasn't tried telepathically declassification and didn't claim they were his. This affair does show there is a need to look more closely at how important documents are handled.
I keep thinking about an interesting mention from way back that Trump scribbled on some of the classified documents, haven't heard more. I wonder if the public will ever learn what those scribbles were.
Maybe he'll show up in drag?
The surprise for the reporters waiting outside his office was ... doughnuts!
nice move ...
Et tu Pence ?
Classified docs found in his sock drawer or garage or somewhere ... I can't even keep track of this.

Introduced into Court: a manual for holding meetings including rules and regulations for a proper Proud Boy. There is the usual Guns, Motherhood and the Superiority of Western Civilization as well as occasional whimsical details such as this on Page 7:

The Department of Defense recently issued a memorandum on Warning Regarding Poppy Seed Consumption and Military Drug Testing.
Recent data suggest that certain poppy seed varieties may have higher codeine contamination that previously reported. The memorandum warns service members that the consumption of poppy seed products could result in a codeine positive urinalysis result.
Out of an abundance of caution, the Department is encouraging all service members to avoid the consumption of poppy seeds in all forms to include food products and baked goods. As more information becomes available, the Department will revise the policy accordingly.
The Warning Regarding Poppy Seed Consumption and Military Drug Testing memorandum can be found here.
Adding Slaughterbots to my vocabulary!
This would make for a scary horror movie in which people are beset by hundreds of microbots, I would have them equipped to bore into their targets. So real though.
Worse might be to come: one person could launch almost unlimited swarms of cheap microdrones — ‘slaughterbots’ — to wipe out political opponents or entire populations.
Conflict pressures are pushing the world closer to autonomous weapons that can kill without human control. Researchers and the international community must join forces to prohibit them.Read more from www.nature.com
