Happy 5779!

Unless you’re listening to today’s podcast, which could lead you to think it’s 5778, since it’s a rerun from September 12, 2017. But as a matter of fact, it was actually still 5777 on that date! So, ha!

Ted Cruz popped up last night as just another shade of the rightwing sex-cult. No soup porn... yet. If you want to spank Ted for it, get in line. David Waldman’s KITM paddle has holes drilled in it just for these occasions, but today it’s reserved for bigger asses:

Where to start—Russians or Trump? Trick question, they fade seamlessly into each other. Which we knew since the Steele dossier, and which many knew long before that. Just when you thought Putin and Trump couldn’t be more intertwined new connections emerge. Trump lied to conceal his Moscow business partners right through the election. Russia used Facebook events to organize anti-immigrant rallies. How could they get away with that? Pretty easily. Let a Russian Russia-splain American sovereignty to you. 

Russia to white supremacy to Trump is a short path. The Senate passed a resolution on Monday condemning white supremacist organizations, which could force Trump to go on the record about these fine people.

Hope Hicks, how does she do it? We might find out soon!
