Trump fires Attorney General Jeff Sessions, names Matthew Whitaker as interim replacement

quote [ President Donald Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions after a year-long public shaming campaign that has raised questions about whether the president improperly interfered with the Justice Department’s inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. ]

Related, new term presidential harassment is in the news.

Here are a few optimistic points to mull over:

1 - Vote cheating will get more difficult. Seeing how state houses flipped (especially in PA, MI, WI and MN) should mean less gerrymandering, and better ballot auditing.

2 - GOP incumbents that held on just learned a hard lesson. The General Election is looming now, and the fact there were no real landslides in districts that should have been cakewalks has a huge psychological effect. Most notably the fear of being primaried. That could go either way in trumpland-red areas; actually resulting in moderate gestures like infrastructure repair, or, it may drive them crazier than they already are. Should be mildly entertaining either way 6to watch them squirm.

3 - Mitt Romney entering the Senate. I know that sounds silly considering, BUT he personally loathes Donald Trump. Moreover, his fellow Mormons are starting to notice the utter moral turpitude of the rest of Deep-Red America, and they already know that the Mike Pence Dominionists pricks consider mormons all to be damn infidels. Strange bedfellowas and all that...
