Palace intrigue roils a mighty empire, and David Waldman can’t get enough of it. But first, back to our soap opera:
Donald Trump became president of the United States of Men today. You’ve come a long way buddy. Donald wants you to know that he secretly hates the abuse of women, because somehow that’s better? What did John Kelly see in Rob Porter? Rob Porter Is a national security scandal, too. A second wife beater is tossed to the curb. She didn’t come forward because she was jealous, she came forward because she was abused. Accountability is coming for the White House.
Once the Democratic rebuttal is released (The White House demands they first redact that “ic” from the title of their organization.) Devin Nunes has 5 more baking in the crazy oven. How did Nunes become such a loon? This time, the cover-up won’t be worse than the crime. Hope Hicks… it’s always the quiet one.
Scott Pruitt might be behaving a bit gauche for the Donald’s tastes.
The guy paid to chase Donald Trump’s ethics has either the hardest or easiest job in Washington. Remember that lie about the border agent’s death? It might take a while to get updates from some on that story.
