Your DGB for today is to oppose the appointment of Brett Talley.

Trump picks all the best people, like Flynn and Manafort, so we shouldn’t be surprised by his pick for an Alabama judgeship, but he’s majorly jumped the shark on this one. Dude is a ghosthunting lawyer who has never even tried a case, is married to someone in Trump’s administration, and has defended the KKK on an online message board.

He was still voted out of committee last week because everything is terrible and now his nomination will advance to the senate floor, despite the American Bar Association rating him “not qualified.”

If you haven’t felt the need to scream into a pillow yet today, read more about him here:

Then, spend your weekend using Resistbot to let your Senators know this guy doesn’t deserve a lifetime appointment.
