Hello, and welcome to another week of Can I get a Whoop Whoop? David Waldman helps us cope with the new normal, without letting it get too normalized.

Greg Dworkin invites us to step back and look at the bigger picture. Republicans have to pass something, or they might be seen as... “failures”. So, the CBO score doesn’t matter, coverage of 32 million, including poor, children, disabled, those affected by emergency or disaster doesn’t matter. The future, near or long term, doesn’t matter, as long as they can get people to shut up about it for a moment.

People won’t shut up about Russia either. Including Donald’s own lawyers, even when they are sitting in the restaurant next door to the Washington bureau of The New York Times. Trump’s lawyers were arguing, not about the innocence of their client, but how much guilt they’d like to accept. These people who can’t avoid giving away secrets in restaurants worry their friends are wearing wires in private. Mueller doesn’t need to place wires when he can just follow the rubles to Facebook.

We can’t let Trump become normalized, although the more people get used to his use of Twitter, the less strength Donald Trump gets from using it.

David looks back into the Trump mess that was happening even before the transition.

Free Speech Week is a sham for suckers, but who wouldn’t have guessed that?

The dystopian future of harvesting organs from the poor is now.

The folks that want to keep Robert E. Lee statues up really have no problem destroying national monuments.

A moment of silence for the Russian officer that saved the world.
