Wai so angry Lili?
It felt like it really summed up something about a certain kind of person who IN 20 FUCKING 20 goes "Oh i'm not in love with America anymore." Just the obliviousness of it.

We're watching armed militia face off with no hope of reconciliation in sight, climate collapse to the point where there is zero healthy air across the entire west coast of America and the two parties explicitly saying they will not do anything about it, and this guy comes along with his groovy story about how even Miles Davis faced racism and maybe he can detect a darkness in America that he hadn't glimpsed before.

So just stating the obvious then in his opinion piece.

incredibly normal country


Hey! Maybe RBG was just really into her keep fit regime, the memories meant a lot to her and her trainer just wanted to give her one last lesson, you know, for old time's sake.

And maybe Justice Kavanaugh can have a drunk Frat boy rape a college girl beside his coffin, you know, for old time's sake.

I missed that.

I did see her at some gig in DC a few years back, and... I'm not ashamed to say, I kinda would.
ahaha

The right jumped all over it of course, but leaving that aside, my guess is she was just trying to avoid answering the question and coming up blank, but it looks like a computer game glitch:

Is this correct? She 'lied' there? Or is he being sarcastic?
I'm not sure where this Gleick character sits on the political spectrum, but I'd guess the joke is something along the lines of:

Trump's been spewing lies for countless years, yet media outlets (eg NBC) will typically use every other word possible to skirt around or soften the fact that he's lying. When they finally use the word it's in a completely different, kind of weird, context. Lied? Lay? I guess you can use lied in that way?

Can you? English? Janer?

I think.
