David Waldman and Greg Dworkin return for Thursday’s KITM, and not a moment too soon. The last 24 hours have been hectic for our Loser in Chief—and right after the boss chewed him out about his oil well interventionism down south! It’s hard making a buck, especially if you never made one.
A few people (like… Armando) have been telling you Trump’s billionaire bit is the heart of his con. Tax records show how Trump profited off spreading rumors—until investors stopped believing him... And yet, the people that believe a microwave oven can prove you aren’t poor still think a yacht makes you rich. A few Obama-Trump voters in battleground states might be catching on, however.
Matt Gaetz is being investigated by the Florida Bar for threatening Michael Cohen. Trump’s day in court can’t come soon enough, as the Supreme Court redistributes its wedge issue decisions into election season.
David knew actor Patrick Leahy long before he hit it big, but still isn’t his biggest fan. He has a bone to pick with Leahy’s handling of the the blue-slip rule, the Gop’s handling of the blue-slip rule, and in fact, the past, present and future handling of the blue-slip rule.
It’s not just Dana Milbank having his access to the White House curtailed... but now that it is him, it has become an outrage.
