Even for one of his frothing-at-the-mouth Trumpublican fan boys, "Humanitarian" doesn't make any sense at all; I mean, it's not like he cares about two children dying because of his idiotic border politics.


"Humanitarian" is from the 1843 class of words. Adjoining it to the left is "homophone," and to the right is "humic acid." It was the word class which joined "non" to a raft of already existing words.

So "nonhumanitarian" is an 1843 word too.

:)

As is "ultraconservative."

"Worcestershire sauce," "awhirl," "conte," "encephalitis," it was quite a year. "Dinnerware," "dislikable," "ditchdigger,"and an "electrical storm."

A "farmhand" and a "cattle guard."

"Hanukkah" and "Sukkoth."

"Norn": any of the three Norse goddesses of fate.

He's been awfully quite on Twitter since his tweet about addressing the nation.

Two tweets prior to that tweet he said:

"Congressman Adam Smith, the new Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, just stated, “Yes, there is a provision in law that says a president can declare an emergency. It’s been done a number of times.” No doubt, but let’s get our deal done in Congress!"

Which is an indication that he's not going to declare a state of emergency.

I have a feeling he's going to fold, while trying to make it seem like he won.

Billionaire committing $40 million to impeach Pres. Trump

DES MOINES, Iowa -- A California billionaire is committing an additional $40 million to a nationwide effort to impeach President Donald Trump, he announced Wednesday.

Tom Steyer, who at one time was thought to be eyeing a White House bid himself, says he will not be running for president in 2020.

Gail Collins noticed his Darth Vader breath too.


Trump Hits the Wall
And what's all that sniffling about?
By Gail Collins

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/09/opin ... peech.html

Quote:
For every viewer whose response to the talk was “Wow, we should do something about immigration!” there must have been a hundred whose first reaction was “Why does this man keep sniffing?” Deviated septum? Nasal polyps? Trump’s breathing has actually sounded strange for a long time, but most of us have chosen to ignore it rather than engage in a national conversation about the president’s nose.

If you watched the address — and really, you could have, it was only about as long as it takes to microwave popcorn — you saw a 72-year-old guy squinting at the teleprompter and making rather alarming breathing sounds while reading a speech about how we need a wall to protect women who are “sexually assaulted on the dangerous trek up through Mexico.”

‘The Atlantic’ Calls for Trump’s Impeachment

The Atlantic, in its cover story: “The Founders worried about electing a president who lacked character or a sense of honor, but Americans have long since lost the moral vocabulary to articulate such concerns explicitly, preferring to look instead for demonstrable violations of rules that illuminate underlying character flaws. It is Trump’s unfitness for office that necessitates impeachment; his attacks on American democracy are plainly evident, and should be sufficient.”

“But some Republican senators may continue to dismiss the more sweeping claims against the president, particularly where no statutory crimes attach. And so the strength of the evidence supporting narrower charges such as obstruction of justice and campaign-finance violations may ultimately determine his fate. If the committee can substantiate these charges, it will place even the most reluctant senators in a bind. When the moment finally comes to cast their vote, and the world is watching, how many will acquit the president of things he has clearly done?”
