It is one of those days. Maybe you should just let KITM’s David Waldman, Greg Dworkin, and Joan McCarter condense it all to two hours, and then just pull the covers back over your head until tomorrow.

At least your day isn’t as bad as Matt Lauer’s… or many of the days of many of the women he had access to. Where does Matt fall on the sexual harasser scale? At FrankenKeillor? Trump? Moore?

Why yes, the president is the kind of dotard that would forward fake viral videos from hate groups with evil agendas that everyone knows is fake. The dotard retort is always “if it’s not the truth, it should be”, which of course is pretty dotardish.

So—the tax bill might pass, taking Social Security, Medicare, children’s health care, Obamacare, and the rest of society and civilization into the toilet. There goes the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau… At least we have the open internet standing between us and authoritarian rule! Nope.

OK, so the world is falling apart. Maybe the Hatch Act will be the new dawn for the rule of law? Jennifer Rubin knows what to do—if we all agree Trump should leave, maybe we can all shake hands and let Republicans take over... some grouches might disagree.

If Moscow and Mar-a-Lago stay connected to Earth a little while longer, some people are going to get in all sorts of trouble. Jared Kushner inches closer to Russian quid pro quo, while Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska moves next door to Kellyanne Conway.

Rhetoric is fascism's real battleground, and Nazis win when you aren’t punching them.
