Settling behind the KITM microphone in his trademark smoking jacket and monogrammed pajamas, David Waldman tipped his yachting cap to Hugh Hefner, who started/fixed/ruined/ended so much.

While Donald Trump is still determining which side of the Hefner debate can be exploited best for him, he decided to fail slower by suspending the Jones Act. Puerto Rico is Trump’s Katrina, according to the general that fixed Bush’s Katrina. A corrupt government can’t respond quickly when it’s so busy taking care of itself. An incompetent government can’t either. Donald Trump’s government is both. Even Trump is skeptical of his tax plan. The “doubled standard deduction” in the GOP tax plan is a lie, in fact the whole point of raising the deduction while abolishing the personal exemption is to screw middle-income itemizers. Really, there is no bill, or a plan, outside of the lies.

The Donald is not fit to be the President. Trump voters blame Mitch McConnell. Trump lies to his cultural base when his fiscal base lies become too complex. This might be a hit with Gimmetarians, but might lose some others. Trump and his party have unleashed forces they cannot control. They are shocked they empowered guys that act and speak like Trump, but actually believe what they are saying. They might even know what they are saying,  or when they will do things, which puts them way ahead of Donald. Why has the US expanded its travel ban to Chad, but removed Sudan? Don’t ask Trump, ask Exxon Mobil.

House Dems ask a federal judge to reject Trump’s pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Good luck, the Supreme Court is abandoning legitimacy for partisanship.

Russians impersonated real American Muslims to stir chaos on Facebook and Instagram. The alt-Right converts a Christian shooter into a Muslim, because it works for them.
