Before I get started, I just wanted to say how astoundingly upset I was to find out that Adam West passed away Friday at the age of 88 after a short bout with leukemia.
|The millionaire playboy/superhero dad we all wanted.|
And I know there are a lot of you (I'm guessing about four, really) reading this who, like Jake, will point out that younger folks will only know him as Mayor Adam West from Family Guy. That's fine; because at least they know who he is. I would also encourage them to check out the original Batman series, as well as West's other work, to see what a truly interesting and genuinely funny guy he was.
He will be missed.
Now, on to other stuff...
This week's GIFs are all about Godzilla. Why? Because.

Later in the week, there was a little blip on the teevee machine that may have caught your attention. I'm speaking, of course, of former FBI Director James Comey's testimony concerning Angry Orange. It was fascinating. (This is something you will never hear me say about watching C-SPAN any other time, unless they air impeachment proceedings...Fingers crossed!)
Comey's statement establishes obstruction of justice by Trump. Period.— Jeffrey Toobin (@JeffreyToobin) June 7, 2017
Among other things, Director Comey stated that Angry Orange did ask him to drop the case against Michael Flynn. ("I hope you can see clear to dropping this. To letting Flynn go.") He also said that he leaked the notes he made about the meeting to a friend, who gave them to the press, because he was trying to get a special prosecutor put on the Trump-Russia scandal. It worked.
Twitter, of course, had some fun with the questioning...

Comey: He's guilty— Jason Miller (@longwall26) June 7, 2017
Democrats: He's guilty
Trump: I'm guilty
Republicans: We may never get to the bottom of this
Most disturbing to me was Senator John McCain's line of questioning. He seemed to have a problem telling the difference between the investigation that went on concerning Hillary Clinton's e-mail server and whether Angry Orange was colluding with Russia. A number of people wondered if McCain was in full control of his faculties.

It's official: John McCain is still the guy that picked Sarah Palin as a running mate.— Elizabeth (@Elizasoul80) June 9, 2017
All-in-all, it was a very interesting and enlightening session.

So, the sport hunter who kills critters so he can feel manly (although he knows he will never be as manly as he thinks his pussy-grabbing father is), is a chip off the old block of shit. I don't like him, and I am not alone.

To me the weirdest part of "Karen Pence brings 15,000 to 20,000 bees to the VP residence" is that 5,000 is the margin of error on bees.— Sean Thomason (@TheThomason) June 6, 2017
Why does this seem familiar to me?
