Poor William C. Bradford. The Trump-appointed head of the DOE's Office of Indian Energy said he was the victim of a bad person who used his social media accounts "over the past several years" to say crazy things like Obama is from Kenya, it was right to put Japanese-Americans into concentration camps in WWII, and that "Obama is the son of a fourth-rate p&*n actress and w@!re."
Soon after Mr. Bradford (he prefers to be called "Brute") was given his plum DOE job he deleted his Twitter account, but The Washington Post found the tweets that the bad person posted to Brute's account without his permission. Here's a sample:
Surprise twist: It turns out that that bad person was "Brute" himself. "Brute" issued an apology to The Washington Post:
“As a minority and member of the Jewish faith, I sincerely apologize for my disrespectful and offensive comments. These comments are inexcusable and I do not stand by them. Now, as a public servant, I hold myself to a higher standard, and I will work every day to better the lives of all Americans.”
To add insult to injury, "Brute" was forced to tender his resignation yesterday from his plum job at the DOE. So long, "Brute!"
Number of days since the Trump administration has done something performatively homophobic or transphobic? Zero.

He should have Timothy Leary’s “Two Commandments for the Molecular Age” from his book The Politics of Ecstasy (1968): Thou shalt not alter the consciousness of […]
The more you use your computer, the more it becomes possible for others to use it too. Where there are anti-virus systems, there are hackers looking for a way to get around them. That’s why it’s important to get software that doesn’t just passively scout for viruses in the background. The folks behind GlassWire have […]
Knowledge is power. It’s a cliché, but sometimes things turn into a cliché because they’re true. If you’re making your way through the world of business and entrepreneurship, it only makes sense to read about the insights of people who have climbed that ladder before you. Trouble is, the modern workday doesn’t leave a lot […]
As much as some of us fear the loss of our jobs to robots, there’s one job we’re pretty sure they are welcome to: vacuuming. There’s nothing quite like kicking back and watching a robot vacuum do one of the most time-consuming tasks on the household chore list. And there are few ‘bots that do […]
