Seth Meyers has a point: By now, we all know who and what Trump is, and the answer isn't complicated. As Seth says, "There's just one layer -- a thick epidermis of Botox-infused pancake skin wrapped around a dark, howling void where a soul should be."

Which should mean that tell-all books about this president and his evil banality are redundant. But John Bolton's new book may be different. Bolton is implicated in the worst foreign policy decisions of the past two decades, right up to Trump's decision to disband the global pandemic unit in the National Security Council. And yes, he's just as morally reprehensible as Trump.

But the details of Trump's subservient pleadings to the Chinese dictator and his idiotic entreaties to the North Korean dictator are still revealing, horrifying – and darkly amusing. Seth imagines Trump and Bolton ending up as cellmates in the Hague.

Now that would be a great buddy movie!

No state may have borne more of Trump’s focused fury than Georgia. President Joe Biden carried the state by over 12,500 votes, making it second to Arizona when it comes to the the narrowest margin of victory. This was far outside the realm of possible change that might be addressed by a recount, but Georgia conducted a recount anyway. When that didn’t make things any better for Trump, he requested that Georgia count a third time, which it did. Trump still lost, and by a bigger number than ever.

A Republican House candidate for a competitive seat in northwest Ohio said Monday that mass shootings are an acceptable price to pay for his right to own guns.

"I don't care if countries in Europe have less shootings because they don't have guns. I care about THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and OUR 2nd Amendment Rights," Republican J.R. Majewski tweeted Monday evening. "I think Americans stopped caring what Europe thought of our country in 1776."
