On Friday, the FBI busted the MAGAbomber who had allegedly sent mail bombs to prominent Democrats and to CNN.
The suspect, Cesar Sayoc, is a middle-aged Florida man who splits time living in his “filthy van” and at his mom’s house, has been bankrupt and who worked as a pizza delivery driver, where he insulted his lesbian boss.
The fact that Sayoc turned out to be a Trump supporter straight out of Central Casting tickled HBO’s Bill Maher, who opened his show by slamming Sayoc.
“He’s a typical Trump loser—blames everybody else because his life sucks,” Maher said.
The fact that Sayoc has a long criminal record and drives a “creepy van” while threatening Democrats was exactly as most people expected.
“It turns out he is exactly what you thought—an angry a**hole in a red hat,” Maher said.
Maher was almost in disbelief about just how much Sayoc fit the stereotype of a Trump supporter.
“He lives in Planation, Florida? Yes, I know. How is that still a name? Was ‘Slave Ship, Florida’ taken?” Maher said.
Maher also mocked the Republican obsession with “civility.”
“Is it OK to call this one deplorable?” Maher said. “Or would that hurt Republican feelings?”

Near the beginning of the new film “The Aeronauts,” a giant gas-filled balloon called the “Mammoth” departs from London’s Vauxhall Gardens and ascends into the clouds, revealing a bird’s eye view of London.
To some moviegoers, these breathtaking views might seem like nothing special: Modern air travel has made many of us take for granted what we can see from the sky. But during the 19th century, the vast “ocean of air” above our heads was a mystery.

Demand grows for Pete Buttigieg to come clean about his time at ‘corporate greed machine’ McKinsey
"The political risk is not that his former employer, a multibillion-dollar corporate entity that promotes fraud across the globe, will be mad at him. It's what he would have to disclose."
Days after reports surfaced about the global consulting firm McKinsey's work advising the Trump administration on immigration policy, calls are growing louder for South Bend, Indiana mayor and 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg to disclose details about the work he did for the company.
