What ‘cha doin’? Watching Robert Mueller testify? That’s cool... but wouldn’t you rather be listening to KITM right now, hm?

OK, David Waldman would also rather be watching the testimony, too… and so would Greg Dworkin, but there’s so much to tell you they couldn’t let a day go by:

For instance, there is the prelude to the Mueller testimony, and the prelude to the Mueller testimony postlude. And the speculation… Will this be the Aaron Zebley moment? Will Robert Mueller just explode? Will the media get it right, finally? Or is it LOL YOLO NM, on to the election?

These are not normal times, and this won’t be a normal election. The Russians will interfere again, and the states to worry about are the same ones Hillary Clinton needed, and lost. Do the Democrats need good policies, or good-sounding policies to win? The Green New Deal is as popular as legalizing weed. The best candidate against Donald Trump will harness hopeand fear, at least as good as Trump does.

Mueller’s testimony isn’t the only important thing happening in DC. The House is holding hearings on industry’s Big Tobacco-style campaign to suppress data on the health effects of #PFAS.

There’s a Chinese billionaire at Mar-a-Lago. He sells real estate, in China, hangs out with Steve KG Bannon… and… He’s a Commie spy!

Oh… and Puerto Rico, the TL;DR of American history, erupts into protests of “Ricky Renuncia”… and it looks like he might.
