Week 103 of The Presidential Apprentice, Week 3 of the shutdown, so that makes the wall “steel” not “concrete”? Doesn’t that make next week’s wall “wood” or “lace”? It’s hard to keep track.

Let David Waldman and KITM follow the details:

Super Genius Bill Mitchell suggests zero friction rollers and paint for the border wall,  but leaves it to Dems to figure out how to make them stick.  The rest of the world proposes “invisible walls”, because yes, we really think that Trump is that stupid. Does Donald Trump want a border wall badly enough to let struggling Americans go hungry? Sure! Although federal employees at Trump International Hotel do have nothing to worry about.

Yeah, elections really do have consequences, but it is so lovely to hear Greg Dworkin tell us about the pleasant ones for a change. Donald Trump is obviously unfit for office, so what are we waiting for? Congressman Brad Sherman has already introduced articles of impeachment.

Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib sounds as if she shares that plan, but there are just some things nice girls can’t say. For today, the word remains “investigation”, and all other words can be forgotten for now.

Populism is down, but not out, around the world. Here is what democracy looks like, at least to us. Republicans have to go Democratic if they want a peek.

Mike Pence and others are picking up some big raises during the shutdown, or they aren’t. You won’t know until you see receipts, will you? With Donald Trump, always demand to see everything in writing, and even then don’t believe him.

Think the news media is the enemy of the people now? Wait until you see how they handle the 2020 election.
