... was that I got to watch Trumpcare: The Return of the Undead Shambling Horror being defeated live on twitter through the comments of the disabled Americans with most to lose.

The message to take away from this: 45, and 49 Republican Senators thought 15m more Americans without healthcare cover was an improvement.

And then the Disabled People Destroy SF kickstarter funded. Sweet!

Donald Trump berates London mayor over response to terror attacks

Trump deliberately misquotes Sadiq Khan, the Labour Mayor of London (his son did the same thing after the Westminster attack):

Tory ministers leap to Sadiq Khan's defence:

You pretty much have to think Sadiq Khan being a Muslim isn't a coincidence in the Trumps' pattern of misquoting.

Penny Mordaunt's the Minister for Disabled People - I don't think I've ever had a good think to say about her before!

* The full statement is longer, but Mordaunt tweeted a pic, not text, and I haven't found the full text, OTOH this shows the deliberate misquote, Sadiq Khan was addressing the police presence.

Less than two hours after hearing of the London attack and Trump is trying to use it for political advantage. I think that's the first time I've called a world leader 'bigoted scum'.
