David Waldman presents a special President’s Day KITM! Hey, remember when we had a President? 

At Trump International Golf Club in Palm Beach, Donald Trump can let his hair down (on the nightstand) to take break from Emergency Executive Time and walk the walk over from the telly-telly to the omelet bar, his Twitter thumb hovering at Defcon 1 status.

Mike Pence sycophanted his hardest at Munich, but "Please clap" translated badly with his audience. Angela Merkel knew the room a bit better. Ivanka Trump was there for no reason, but did say "America first doesn't mean America alone," even as more and more prefer it that way.

Donald Trump, winner of the Six Star “Joey No Socks” Diamond Award, received the most beautiful Xerox of a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize. This will be Donald’s third nomination, and his first non-forged nomination.

Greg Dworkin reviews Trump’s doubling down on nothing strategy, a real dictator move that creates more problems than it solves, and for 2020, some good old fashioned immigrant-bashing and Democrat-dissing. Dems can take their tried and true surrender route, or maybe this time supporting their constituents. The Family Fun Pack makes parenting easy for everyone!

Republican constituents are beginning to hate how the Tax Plan worked out for them, hate how the Immigration Plan is working out for them, and will hate how the National Emergency Declaration is going to work out for them. North Korea has bedeviled past Presidents, but that doesn’t mean Trump isn’t the worst on them too.

Is Robert Mueller almost finished? Don’t believe anyone but Bobby on this one. Either way, Trump won’t be able to run the Mueller playbook on the New York feds. The House of Commons in London shows how to handle Cambridge Analytica. More emoluments to Trump show up, from Paul LePage. 

Are you insane to not know how the 25th amendment works by now? Armando is more than ready to invoke the 25th Amendment, raze the Electoral College, and impeach Elliot Abrams.
