Today, we let everybody onto the show, and none of them even had to pay to cheat on their SATs! Greg Dworkin was here! Joan McCarter was here! Armando was here!

Paul Manafort, however, was back in court. And Matthew Whitaker was back before the House Judiciary Committee. And a couple dozen college kids and their naughty, naughty parents were stuck in social media purgatory. Better than where Tucker Carlson and Jeanine Pirro are stuck, though.

The past week or so has been no great shakes for Dotard J. Trump, either. His whipping effort on the border “emergency” may be doing more harm than good, and even House Republicans are looking to buy some distance from him. Nor are early Republican voters in Iowa too keen on him. And I don’t know if Trump loves New York, but New York(‘s Attorney General) doesn’t love him.

Still hung up on Pelosi’s comments on impeachment? You’re not alone. For one thing, Trump appears to have liked them. Although she doesn’t much like the idea of Pence’s proposed one-time pass for the boss. There’s still plenty about her with which we can be pleased.
