Ever consider designing your lifestyle around a 4-hour workweek? The computers at KITM World Headquarters gave that a try today and took a little “meditation break”. Never fear, David Waldman made some midair repairs, allowing Greg Dworkin and Joan McCarter to keep their Wednesday visit, and the show to go on:

Greg tells us the Democrats are not here to play games, but if they did, they’d still be winning. In America’s opinion, Donald Trump is losing in almost every way imaginable. As border apprehensions decline, family apprehensions surge. The U.S. trade deficit is at a 10 year high. Trump’s own executive branch is exploiting the dotard power vacuum. Bill Kristol thinks there might be room for a primary challenger, and Nancy Pelosi sees Texas as 2020 “ground zero”.

The Democrats aren’t planning to keel over waiting for the Mueller report, and are taking steps necessary to secure justice now. Requests today, subpoenas tomorrow. The DOJ used to insist that a Vice President couldn’t be indicted, until the one day they needed to.

Joan tells us how Clarence Thomas stretches ethics to pull in more judges that stretch ethics. Donald Trump and Mitch  McConnell destroy the country by packing the courts, and Democrats have to prepare to fix it.

Trump pressured staff to grant security clearance to Ivanka Trump, just as he did for hubby Jared, although Ivanka probably did not kill Jamal Khashoggi. Remember that money laundering is often combined with body disposal.

Rand Paul inserts his backbone to look good for the camera.  Chuck Grassley is enraged when the Treasury Department treats him like a common Democrat.

R. Kelly might need to start a new band with P.J., Tobin and Squee if he’s unable to intimidate reporters.
