It’s Thursday! Don’t give up—we’ve made it this far and David Waldman and KITM are here to get us to the weekend. It looks like Donald Trump might even make it, even though he hasn’t golfed since Monday and hates every everybody at work.
Greg Dworkin calls in with some freshly rounded-up punditry. Grazing herds of press discover they have permission to tell you that sexual harassment is really bad and maybe Donald Trump is pretty incompetent, but why hasn’t Hillary addressed these issues, and who does she think she is, butting in? Republicans thought Trump would lie like they do, but he showed them! With Trump in office, do scandals matter anymore? Just in case scandals do matter, Trump proposes that people quit talking about them, and while we are at it, let’s take the government out of the USA, beginning with Puerto Rico. Evangelical conservatives remove the morality from Christianity.
Armando reminds us that all consideration of Donald Trump must first note that he is an idiot, mentally ill, and not fit for office. Consideration of Puerto Rico needs to include the Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act, and Statehood. Bondholders will take your money, Trump will take your praise, Puerto Ricans will remain hungry, thirsty and dying.
Has there ever been a more hypocritical leader in the U.S. Senate than Mitch McConnell?
