Government is still shutdown, but nothing can shut David Waldman and KITM down, not even orthodontia appointments! A brand-new show for today:

Yesterday, Donald Trump wondered aloud how anyone could be so stupid to believe what he says.

Do you know that if you slow Donald’s voice by half, it sounds as if he might have snorted only half of his usual dose?

At first glance Paul Manafort’s lawyers seem like real idiots for making many idiotic mistakes. A second, third and fourth glance does not alter this perception. But look again, could Manafort be signaling to some maybe smarter lawyers out there what Robert Mueller has discovered about him and Russian agent Konstantin Kilimnik?

Could usual suspect Michael Cohen be smarter than he looks? Might he be the brains behind this entire thing? Hmm...

The White House hires 17 yes, 17, seventeen! lawyers to block the release or completion of the final Mueller findings. What can a President do if he declares a state of emergency? Way too much.

David revisits PAYGO, because without a legislative patch, across-the-board cuts will happen by January 24 when they trigger Office of Management and Budget enforcement.
