David Waldman’s kids were escorted out of KITM World Headquarters early this morning, raising both local school attendance along with netcast production values, while allowing the coverage of more adult subject matter... which unfortunately can brought to us today courtesy of billionaire sex predator Jeffrey Epstein and Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta:

Federal prosecutors, under former Miami U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta, broke the law when they concealed a plea agreement from more than 30 underage victims who had been sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein. Acosta made his name in battling the “evil, hideous, horrendous crime” of human trafficking, and yet seems to have committed a special kind of evil to protect Epstein. If you know people who might be “nuts”, you might have heard Donald Trump is the hero of this story, when in fact he might be one of many, many villains. After about a dozen years, we might find out. This wasn’t Acosta’s first scandal, but impeachment could make it one of his last.

Speaking of making politicized hiring decisions, and lying about it to Congress, someone now needs to tell Bradley Schlozman to get the hell out of Dodge City, Kansas.

Political rivals of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have joined forces against him, as Netanyahu cuts a deal with the Jewish Power movement. Nationalist, anti-immigrant terrorists are international terrorists.

Decriminalization of homosexuality around the world doesn’t sound like a thing that Donald Trump would even fake-support.

In #nuclearmaterialsFAIL news, someone misplaced three 5 gallon buckets full of uranium at a Grand Canyon tourist spot a couple of decades ago and it took several months for anyone to admit that.
