We’ve probably wrung most the joy out of the schadenfreude that we can from the Tulsa rally at this point, and now we just have to wait and see how Trump takes his anger out on the rest of the country. Mark my words: He will f**k something up because of the poor showing in Tulsa.
This morning, he appears again to be taking aim at mail-in ballots with an eye toward delegitimizing the November elections, especially know that he realizes how very unlikely it is that he can win by legitimate means.

Attorney General Bill Barr — who somehow manages to be so much worse than the racist elf Jeff Sessions — is backing up Trump’s mail-in ballots claims, days after forcing out a U.S. Attorney in New York who was investigation Trump and his associates.
So Bill Barr is on Fox now claiming that mail-in voting will bring fraud. Good grief. What a hack Barr has turned out to be. He just keeps going lower and lower for Trump.— Robert E Kelly (@Robert_E_Kelly) June 22, 2020
As for Berman’s ouster? A lot of very smart, very eloquent people over the last two or three days have devoted thousands of words to saying: Barr fired him because Berman got too close to Trump and his buddies. We don’t need to devote more words to it.
Actually, you know what? Let’s just extract just a little more schadenfreude out of this while he can.

Here’s the Never Trump Republicans, The Lincoln Project, very crassly comparing Donald Trump’s Tulsa rally to his penis. UNCALLED FOR, LINCOLN PROJECT! HOW DARE YOU SPEAK THE LANGUAGE OF TRUMP.
Finally, I leave you with Josh Radnor, who gives us the best moment of his career here since the first cupcake girl episode of How I Met Your Mother.
