This AM, a school snow delay backed traffic all the way up to the doors of KITM World Headquarters. David Waldman fought child gridlock while bringing us the latest in today’s news:

Donald Trump bought over 1000 hamburgers last night, sharing 300 with the Clemson University Tigers football team, but probably didn’t spring for drinks.

Steve King managed to hide his insane racism from all of Washington for over 20 years, but it finally caught up with him as the House stripped him of his committee assignments, and might throw some disapproval, or even censure his way.

A federal judge blocked Trump’s 2020 citizenship question, allowing millions of citizens to be counted. Now the administration quietly moves to garrote Medicaid behind Congress’ back.

William Barr’s Senate confirmation hearing continues, and so far there’s plenty hinky about that guy. Elizabeth Holtzman was there during Watergate and can tell you William Barr is wrong.

Sally Yates’ warning about vulnerability to blackmail applied to Trump more than Mike Flynn. Do you know who really would know about Trump and Putin? The other person in the room. There are at least 18 reasons Trump could be a Russian asset.

Can the invisible hand of the free market block future shootings? Arming teachers is idiotic and crazy, and therefore difficult to do, but that also means it has to be done on the QT.

Hey, if any of you donated to the GoFundMe for Trump’s wall, well… oh never mind.
