A whole White House department resigns!
Aug 19, 2017, 07:43
Every member of The President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities has just resigned. Their letter says:

"Supremacy, discrimination and vitriol are not American values. Your values are not American values. We must be better than this. We are better than this. If this is not clear to you, we call on you to resign your office too. "

He's such a philistine he's probably never heard of them. But good for them.

Also I saw it pointed out in the independent that the first letter of the paragraphs in their letter reads RESIST, which is quite amusing.

oh and apparently Trump was going to disband the committee anyway. Like long before they got uppity. So like, you can't resign because I'm sacking you. Didn't he do that to the business people's committee the other day, too? He's going to run out of people to sack soon. It's all very bizarre.

What non-IP infringing vegetable dish can you now get for free every time you book into a Trump Hotel?

"Walled-Off Salad"

but that's the entire script to Fawlty Towers really isn't it, struggling to accomodate your guests while a man dressed as your wife is banging on a typewriter. You can see where the Monty Python = Racist confusion lies.

What, because Graham Chapman once played tennis with a human sized blancmange half of the Williams sisters are advertising mattresses?

Funny, I heard taht and then started watching the Netflix show Designatedd Survivor where the spokesman for the real resigning Arts council becomes the Press Spokesman/Communications director for the fictional President.
Seemed pretty synchronous or something, but I think it's a pretty new show so presumably other people have seen something similar.
