Today, Rob Portman finds the sting of sudden infamy… The sudden infamy of Rob Porter. The White House hopes everyone will be that confused today, but not with David Waldman and Greg Dworkin on the case! KITM has two hours to tackle the incompetence, hubris and privilege that is behind all of this.  

Where does one start? How about with Chuck Woolery? Was Chuck on something when he picked out this particular Mayor to accuse of giving out free money? Yep. Now White House Adult John Kelly, praiser of slavery, critic of Dreamers, has applauded a wife beater, Rob Porter, and also scrambled to protect him. Kelly declared Porter as a man of “true integrity and honor,” but how did he miss those other details? Maybe because details like that aren’t important to the Trump administration, or to Republicans. What might matter to them is genetics, which is the only notable difference between MS-13 and the Alt-right. In that light, making Trump lose is not enough, and boycotting Republicans is not enough. Still, we have elections to win, and Rob Porter just might have helped.
