David Waldman’s refrigerator is broken. Is your refrigerator running? If so, more Americans would vote for it over Trump... Before his appliance troubles, David would eat avocado toast three, four times a day, which sure adds up. So consider a donation to either Patreon or Square Cash. Quick!
Greg Dworkin cuts through the chaos to point out that all the chaos is baffling the public less and less, even amongst the hard core Trumpists, who are beginning to slip into the enthusiasm gap. The Health Care bill already has the house in play, but now impeachment is becoming a winning Democratic issue. Republicans need votes too, so Trump’s protective wall is beginning to crack. Jason Chaffetz’s subpoena pen is starting to rise in anticipation. Of course, most polling occurred before news of the Comey Memo, and of course Trump’s overseas fiascos. Fox talkers are sooo bored with all of this, and anyhow they need to tune up for “Nearer My God to Thee”. Vlad throws in the anchor.
Joan McCarter discusses the three exits Republicans are running for: “Trump is a victim”, “Trump is an idiot”, or “Trump is king”. Intelligence Trump leaked to Russians came from Israel, so maybe he should have checked his itinerary first. Looks like it will be a family trip, then.
