In order to conquer the KITM echo, David Waldman tried the Discord app, and it wasn’t helpful. Next time he might try a more effective means of telecommunication, like a seance maybe.

Want to help Harvey victims? There’s ActBlue. Probably a better pick than Red Cross. Donate, but think about it first.

There were explosions at a flooded Texas chemical plant. Well not an “explosion”—kind of a overpressurization, followed by a violent containment rupture, a fireball—well not a “fireball” , the volatile chemicals are flammable—well not “flammable” more like Inflammable, that is to say you probably shouldn’t be living around there.

How powerful is the Mayor of Charlottesville supposed to be? Now he’s supposed to be less powerful

Robert Mueller is teaming up with the New York AG to box the Trump gang for good. What can Donald Trump do now?

Greg Dworkin and Joan McCarter called in to today’s KITM via Skype. If you listened live, their voices had a strong “reverberation”, David Waldman’s did not. If you listen to today’s podcast you will not hear any echo on any voice. During the broadcast David did not hear any echo, Joan did, but Greg did not… but Armando did yesterday... Is there an audio/computer/streaming engineer in the house? Let us know which button to push!

Greg Dworkin rounds up the latest on Harvey and Houston. The worst is yet to come for the chronically ill or in need of any health assistance

We all pull together in times of crisis… OK, we used to. For the Gop any time is a good time to for tax cuts and cutting services. Donald Trump won’t allow Harvey to be like Obama’s Katrina and it won’t be, if hat sales are any guide. The same folks whatabouting Katrina really enjoy Donald’s personality and style. Republicans find themselves defending Trump’s stench, even as more of the stink rubs off on them. Still, more than a fifth of his support has smartened up.

Greg Gianforte body-slammed Ben Jacobs, promised him an interview, and is of course not planning on doing anything.

Joan McCarter informs us that the real test for Republican government starts next week. She expects them to fail. The disaster in Texas was predicted. Trump can also be predicted to attempt to route disaster relief to his wall. Here is a way to support victims of Hurricane Harvey$350K so far! 

Jim Mattis isn’t contradicting Trump on transgender policy, in fact he is implementing the order exactly as directed. Mattis might have to contradict us out of nuclear war.

Donald is still a little bit short of actually running a dictatorship. The legal challenge to the Arpaio pardon begins, and it looks as if Trump can’t pardon his way out of Russia trouble.

Here is what sets KITM apart from other shows: David Waldman finds it a necessity from time to time to dig way way way into the news compared to the sources from which he borrows. Today, listen as David does the research into the stories live and finds the answers to  the questions you’d ask: Is this true? Does this check out? Is the the right answer? Things you just can’t do in print:

Two men were finally arrested in connection to the Charlottesville violence they committed in front of many eye witnesses and cellphones. In fact, David pieces together two viral images to tell the story of one moment at Charlottesville. Who was in charge at Charlottesville? It helps to know who was supposed to be in charge.

Melania put on her wading heels and went to survey the Hurricane Harvey situation. Harvey is her husband’s big chance to claim… something. Donald continues his laser focus on his image. Republicans know Trump sucks. He’s not even a Republican, who are supposed to suck. We don’t need Louise Mensch to make up stories when we have so many real ones.

Meanwhile mass shootings slide right on by on the news feed. Two dead, 4 injured in Clovis, New Mexico. What causes gun “accidents”? Negligence? Ignorance? Stupidity? Yep. The 95th child under 15 accidentally has been shot to death this year.

Week 32 of The Presidential Apprentice kicks into gear with a new challenge, the “natural disaster.” Lucky for our contestant, this is a huge, historic, chocolate cake of a calamity, because when things go wrong it will be hard to compare him to Obama.

David Waldman and Greg Dworkin talk about the many dilemmas left for Texas, it is no time for self congratulations.

Donald Trump might have sucked less as a 19th century presidentJoe Arpaio might have been more secluded as a 19th century sheriff, but they didn’t allow anti-government extremists then either—and that is the least of Arpaio’s evils. Arpaio once staged an assassination attempt to win sympathy, then framed a man for it. Taxpayers paid the damages.

So, of course Trump pardoned Arpaio. Heavens! that puts Donald in “uncharted territory”! Why, he certainly crossed a line there, a bit like the last ten lines he crossed. People will become so troubled by this. Then Trump will do it again, and then he’ll do it half a dozen more times.

Armando calls in for a nuts and bolts discussion of DNC Unity, and how the charming tradition of the Iowa Caucus is an affront to democracy.

Remember when Trump said he had “no links, no loans, no nothing” with Russia? It looks like he had a lot of no nothing with Russia, including attempting a Trump Tower in Moscow while he ran for president. Maybe Trump (and Jill Stein) were trying to share Christian values… or mob connections.

KITM doesn’t bring you the news first, it just feels that way with David Waldman keenly pointing out the details of what will later become news, and fun gifs.

Trump keeps trying, but justice just won’t stay obstructed. He would’ve gotten away with it too, if it wasn’t for those meddling journalists connecting the dots between Russia, spies, and him. Paul Manafort is going away for a long time, or maybe a shorter time once he cooperates with the FBI. Some more pardons to toss on the pile: Anyone connected to FL Group, an Icelandic bank connected to dodging a few hundred million in taxes for you-know-who.

You know that Steve Bannon is not your friend. Trump probably always had him pegged as well.

Donald Trump doesn’t have a tax plan. But if he did, Trump almost lost his key economic advisor Gary Cohn who was almost forced to leave because of Donald’s bigotry. 

Here comes Hurricane Harvey. Trump just flunked his first natural disaster test, and then goes out of his way to endanger more.

David Waldman returns from vacation well rested, but because of the eclipse he’s only tan along his outer edges. KITM is live today and David is ready to get back to work—more than some people we know.

Greg Dworkin’s back too! Government shutdown chances are rising by the day, maybe because of Mexico’s stinginess, or Mitch McConnell doesn’t know who’s boss, or maybe because Donald sucks at what he’s supposed to do. Most feel Trump isn’t honest, a good leader, caring, level headed, strong, intelligent or share their values. Trump hopes to make up for all of that by being the hugest racist, but nope, his base is leaving him too. Daniel M. Kammen, who can spell just as well from top to bottom as from left to right, resigns his Trump post. Which “Trump” though—teleprompter-reading Trump or speak-out-his-butt Trump?

 A UN committee charged with tackling racism has issued an “early warning” over Charlottesville.

What does this all mean for 2018?  Pretty good things probably. The Hillary vs. Bernie argument will still persist through 2020, as will interminable dissection of Clinton’s loss. 

A guy witnessed the terror attack in Charlottesville and became Alt-Right “fake news”. A guy constantly posts fake news which becomes rightwing “real news”.

Lest anyone forget about his obstruction of justice, Donald will just do it over and over until they remember. Putin will attack democracy everywhere in case you don’t have enough evidence he’s doing it here.

David Waldman likes vacations so much, he put a vacation in his vacation during which he worked on today’s new KITM:

David finishes up the William Regnery II story. Proof that a racist can spend millions of dollars over most of a lifetime and find people that say they agree with him. Tim Gionet, thoroughly talentless idiot, would probably agree with Regnery, but already is raking it in as a Trump idiot. One more look at crying virgin nazi-boy terrorist Chris Cantwell. Does the Alt-Right attract idiots or create them? Either way, they are coming to a legislature near you... Antifa!

David Waldman remains in awe hangover after experiencing both the moon and the sun right over his head at the same time, but he does hope to return to live KITM’s this Thursday! Unfortunately, Steve Bannon and the Alt-Right continue to be relevant topics:

Steve Bannon is back baby! Charlottesville allowed Steve to “pursue other interests”. Now he’s ready to bring us more of… whatever he brought us in 2016. Like any of the Right, governing was just not his thing. So, back to wingnut welfare. William Regnery II has doled out cash to racists for decades, and is finally seeing some returns.

Know your Alt-Right catchphrases! "Duke Lacrosse” brought us Richard SpencerStephen Miller and just about every creepy jerk right now.

David Waldman’s being followed by a moon shadow, moon shadow, moon shadow... It’ll catch up with him later today, but for right now he is still producing new, but non-live versions of KITM. David is in South Carolina, but probably not visiting the state’s protected Confederate monuments. The whole point of Confederate monuments is to celebrate white supremacy. That, and to make money for statue makers. The clone army is in retreat, but might rise again if we aren’t alert. We are just now rediscovering the lost history of the only coup d’état ever to take place on American soil.

So, who the f@&$ is Steve Bannon? It’s not too late to ask that question, because he’s not actually going away like he really should. Steve Bannon stayed at the White House to advise Trump on very fine Nazis, but everyone knows Gorka’s the house Nazi, and Bannon wasn’t awfully up on Muslims, or geography. Steve Bannon’s expertise lies in climate denial, meth production, porn, and ass-kissing, but unfortunately he wasn’t meeting Trump’s standard.

A white nationalist ship refused help from a refugee rescue boat, so maybe they think they are superior swimmers as well.

No, that’s not your cat throwing up. The “Gorka-Gorka-Gorka” you keep hearing is David Waldman continuing his analysis of Nazi Sergeant Pepper Sebastian Gorka, the “Moe” of Trump’s three stooges. Gorka lost his temper, on tape of course, with terrorism expert Michael S. Smith II. Sebastian isn’t the only anti-Islamic Gorka devaluing national security judgement. Sebastian’s wife Katherine Gorka collaborates on twisting discourse, right down to altering Wikipedia articles.

There is no pretty one, but here is the ugly way Trump’s rise and Putin’s are connected. Gop campaigns took $7.35 million from a Putin pal. Trump Jr. is now tied to the banker behind the Russian money laundering scheme. Brian Benczkowski, nominated to lead the Justice Department's Criminal Division, says sure, he used to work for the Russian banks that propped Donald up, but he doesn’t anymore. In November, Russian cyberattack targeted an elections vendor tied to voting day disruptions, including North Carolina’s bluest county.

Mar-a-Lago doesn’t want Americans working there, but the Labor Department makes them ask, so…

Customs and Border Protection employees are told to ignore Congressional representatives trying to do their job, Congressional representatives are shocked to find.

John Kelly might as well start packing up his office. Hope Hicks picks up the Communications Director Job on her move up.  How Does She Do It?

David Waldman isn’t sure when “today” is in today’s new, pre-recorded KITM, but he does remember about when last week was, and he certainly can find next week on a calendar—that’s when he returns.

But how au courant does one need to be nowadays, anyhow? Throw a dart at a list of reprehensible, inhuman, unAmerican traits and actions and prescience is yours. Today’s words are: Nazi, and… Gorka. To some Sebastian Gorka is synonymous with “Nazi”, but his reprehensibility has somewhat more depth and nuance. Gorka tried to bring a handgun through airport security. He thinks the Minnesota Mosque Attack was probably the fault of the left. Gorka says people should stop criticizing white supremacists so much. He is exactly the pit bull Trump doesn’t need, which is precisely why he has his White House job. He tried pulling this stuff in Hungary, but just couldn’t find the right tin-pot dictator to hook up with until he came here.

Remember the Jewish community centers bomb threats? There have been more than 100 since the election, but the FBI arrested a few suspects so far. One was some loon trying to harass an ex-girlfriend. Another was an Israeli American teenager, who could also be a loon, but really, he was just in it for the money.

This morning David Waldman left on a journey to position himself beneath a totality, but he didn’t totally leave—he’s busy producing new programs right now in the passenger seat of the KITM minivan, and if it all works out, the show above should cover the following topics:

The Greed is Good ideology continues as core business school indoctrination, because maximizing shareholder value remains the primary goal over the wellbeing of the company, community or workers.  America’s middle class dies along with the American concept of shared prosperity.

You probably know that Donald Trump is a racist and a fascist, but did you know that Trump is a liar as well?  He is! Trump attempted to weave a parable completely out of lies to instruct his top generals.

Each sip of Fiji Water® contains more than the recommended daily requirement of shameful feelings.

Today is the last “live” KITM, for at least a week. Don’t worry—no summer reruns! David Waldman will be releasing pre-recorded shows on many timeless topics and concerns.  

White nationalism and Nazis, are unfortunately a pretty enduring aspect of American life. Inexplicably, so is the Confederacy. Donald Trump calls them all “The Base”… actually he doesn’t call them anything, he just blows his dog-whistle.

Greg Dworkin rounds up news on White nationalism, enabled by the White House. The Alt-Right’s rebranding effort has failed. The Gop is more likely to vent ‘personal disgust’ for Trump after Charlottesville, which is really the only way a Trump voter has a chance to hear any bad Trump news. Americans realize the President Is Un-American, and there aren’t two sides to this question. Trump’s technique of babbling in the face of tragedy has failed him. Trump’s triangulation has failed, his dog whistle is broke, so Donald, uhh by the way says he thought Nazis and the KKK were bad all along. That’s after Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier resigned from Trump’s advisory council and Trump tried to kick him on the way out.

Nazis are getting punched here and around the world. Not nice, but neither are Nazis.

Armando calls in to discuss Netroots Nation, a place where, like Daily Kos, Twitter, and everywhere, all members of the Left respect and appreciate the viewpoints, judgements, and convictions of each other, mostly. We agree it’s time to be unapologetically progressive in 2018. Also, Comey and Mueller are pretty dreamy.

KITM continues to evolve—just this week David Waldman fostered relationships to listeners, opened new communications networks, and sharpened his skills in a variety of applications. (Consider giving him a raise before some other place snaps him up.)

Speaking of raises, Trump Hotel in Washington is experiencing soaring profits, enabling it to raise its rates even higher, allowing Donald Trump to make incredible amounts of money for a financial imbecileKim Jong-un considers cutting the payroll in Guam. Trump considers countering global warming with just a touch of nuclear winter, and no one can stop him. 60,000 Psychologists say Trump has a "Serious Mental Illness" and will have multi-city town hall meetings on October 14 (which looks so far away). Two key aides to UN Ambassador Nikki Haley have found some “family concerns.” Married former White House Communications Director Jason Miller attempts to repopulate the earth in his image.

Armando calls in from an undisclosed location, actually he’s at Netroots Nation, but he can’t disclose much as he just got there.  He’ll bring us up-to-date next week!

Two guys you do hear a lot from are Bradd Jaffy And Kyle Griffin, who step in front of the news before you read it.

Donald Trump, who works with no one, won’t be working with Democrats on infrastructure.

Good news — the Statue of Liberty is now an anti-MAGA symbol, at least to MAGA types.

David Waldman is making the new breaks on the half hour smoother, or at least more fun with each passing day. And shorter, which is definitely better.

Donald Trump loves the polls. Here’s one, for instance. In an effort to give balance to both sides, Greg Dworkin discusses the polls Donald doesn’t care for (the rest of them). Trump is heading towards Nixonian lows, and most importantly, losing his base. Republicans figure that eliminating elections would help make polling badly less irksome, but for the moment Democrats hope public opinion still has a relationship to electoral success. It will not be that easy for Democrats to use the health care vote to win back the House. If you are able to chase down an injured representative, maybe you can talk sense into them.

Professor Robert Kelly, the American expert on North Korea residing in South Korea ends up being this guy, so must have a lot on his plate right now. When Donald Trump orders the 40th infantry division to the Bloodmaul Slag Mines you’ll have one guy to thank (with royalty checks).

Armando is bummed that the most stupid president is getting advice from the most stupid television show as we head into nuclear obliteration. If we don’t all die, it will still be frustrating to watch some of the left ignore or denigrate fine policy ideas if promoted by members of the left who are not their members of the left.

Donald is taking a break from his golf club, and golf clubs, to visit Trump Tower, which is in New York City.

Oh, and this idiot got a little smarter, maybe.

Some day premium members might get a chance to hear what David Waldman says during those 10 minutes or so when his computer crashes at the very beginning of a KITM. The rest of us can only guess.

Greg Dworkin, with his pals Spinner and Paddlefoot, discuss “cargo cults”. (Honestly, what’s up with that font style?) Cargo cults confused correlation with causation, which is always easy to do. Substance needs to precede results. Now, how to get the folks that just discovered healthcare for all would be great to trust those that knew that all along...

Donald’s shaky base gets shakier. There is less real support in those polls Trump followers think are fake—leaving room for more fake support! Trump voters don’t give a damn about others. Some say Donald Trump doesn’t really care about people. Or that he’s “senselessly” cruel. But no, he actually gets off on it. A lot.

So, let’s talk about nuclear war. Who lives in Guam, anyway? Enveloping fire and fury that this world has never seen before won’t bring more economic frustration to the rust belt, will it? Bad news like this is why twice a day Donald Trump gets a folder of happy news delivered to him, to confirm his support and power before he “gets in a mood”.

Quasi–White House adviser, actual Nazi Sebastian Gorka figures the Minnesota mosque attack was a “false flag” by the left. Meanwhile, the JCC bomb-threat suspect was probably paid to do it, according to the FBI.

Speaking of the FBI, they came knocking at Paul Manafort’s door “predawn”, which is never good.

David Waldman announces that we still have nineteen million nine hundred ninety-nine thousand two hundred fifty dollars to go in our KITM August pledge drive. If we make that, I’ll weave you a tote bag.

It just seems like he’s out golfing, but Donald Trump is hard at work... watching Fox and Friends, and replaying the hard parts when their reasoning becomes too complex.

David takes a detailed look at the rules of business, and politics in Washington, before Trump tosses them out. The Trump administration is a corrupt family business, even for the Prince-DeVos families. Jeff Sessions subverts whatever rules he needs to for the boss. Sure, the Democrats can interpret the rules a bit hinky at times as well.

What ideology Donald doesn’t pick up watching Fox and Friends, he learns from Russian bots. The good/bad news is that bots get smarter every day.

KITM is growing up! David Waldman introduces 3 minute long station identification and ad breaks on the half hour. Who knows what the future might bring?

It’s a bad morning for golf, so what can Donald Trump do to be productive? Twitter would be the only answer.

Donald wants us to know his base is bigger and better than ever before. Greg Dworkin and the facts disagree. Trump’s base feels that lying is how the game is played, and Donald Trump is their MVP, but even they want something more than lies from their leader. The base still has white victimhood to bind them together. “Cosmopolitan bias” is now a fashionable phrase, but of course has an ugly history. The NRA needs an enemy, and the enemy is now the media.

Victory is ours to lose, so Democrats get cracking on that as 2018 looms closer. Greg rounds up how to win (and how not to) in 2018.  

David gets procedural to remind us that reconciliation isn’t the only rule to watch in Congress. The SC Attorney General has "disturbing, highly irregular" behavior,  but isn’t that normal anymore?

David Waldman, called by many Boy Scouts the “World’s Greatest Dad,” got his apps together last night in order to bring you today’s well-oiled KITM, chock full of ultramodern “two-way” conversations:

Greg Dworkin tells us there’s a new sheriff in town, but the same bad hombre. A lot of Trump guys are getting fired, and Donald Trump still continues work on taking himself down. Unfortunately, Trump remains an "incompetent player" who must be "liquidated”—according to Russia.

Donald Trump is not popular in the US either. 71% say Donald is not “level-headed”. In fact, most Americans think Trump’s mostly awful in most ways—except for being “intelligent and strong” (the two attributes displayed by only the greatest movie slashers.) Trump knows now is the time to enact some deplorable legislation for his deplorable core. In the center of all the chaos hides the greatest destruction.

Donald Trump is unbelievable. He lied about the Boy Scouts. He lied about the president of Mexico. He lied about asking the president of Mexico to lie for him. He lies about everything. He’ll lie about anything. Trump lies like his life depends upon it. At least being he’s honest about it

Trump battles “fake news” (real news) with “real news” (fake news) hosted by his daughter-in-law.

Where are the Single-Payer wonks? Everybody wants it, but it’s not so easyWhy leftists don't trust Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, and Deval Patrick.

Armando calls in to try out the Skype. Donald’s going on that golfing vacation his entire career has led to on Friday. While in DC, Graft stays at the luxurious Trump International.

Joan McCarter finally gets time to return to the show! Remember that dumb lawsuit over Obamacare payments? It's now a big problem for Trump. Donald will be checking the progress of Trumpcare from the links. Meanwhile, red states move to slash Medicaid on their own.

Chaos! Pandemonium reigns during the first 15 minutes or so of KITM, and it had nothing to do with the Trump administration! Greg Dworkin and Joan McCarter called in to say hi to David Waldman, and that’s about as far as they got before Skype issues took them away. Both return tomorrow and will take another whack at it.

Donald Trump takes a darker turn, by appealing to the whitest insecurities. Trump wants a culture war. Are Democrats ready to fight back? Maybe... Trump thinks America is a hell-hole generally, but the White House is a real dump.

Meanwhile, Donald dropped a major deuce of stories. First, there’s Trump’s Wall Street Journal interview. A full transcript exists for the hardy, but leave it to professionals like David Dale to reveal the “highlights”, etc., etc. The second news flash is that Trump found that Russian sanction bill—it’s always the last place you look—and he’s getting some whining out while he searches for new smoochable areas on Putin’s butt. Rex Tillerson is helping hold the flashlight, and has found aspects of the State department to destroy, from countering Russian propaganda, to reducing requirements for justice or democracy.

Donald always has his comrades in mind. Putin and Trump are so close, each finishes the other’s alibis. Putin and Trump are as close as Fox and Sputnik.

OK, Scaramucci is out. David Waldman is back. August is looking up.

But—Scaramucci’s, Kushner’s, Huntsman’s and Eric Trump’s emails!

Othello?

Trump’s lawyer said Donald had nothing to do with Junior’s statement. So, of course, it turns out that Donald Trump actually dictated the statement.

Trump was going to sign that Russia sanctions bill, but it looks like it was lost in the mail. Maybe they can send over a copy?

Who would’ve guessed that Fox News would push fake news to distract from Trump BS?

Who would’ve guessed that the Gop would source an anti-Clinton amendment from Subreddit?

Lindsey Graham guesses it’s time to nuke North Korea.
